used for "outreach activities"
Wheeler defended setting up
the unique department-one of
his campaign promises-by say-
ing, "Why wait for legislation
to tell us to provide these other
kinds of (h u m a n) services?
Let's set the initiative."
He explained that the program
would "meet the real needs that
haven't been met" like housing
and health needs and will in-
clude a Public Information
THE INFORMATION service,
Wheeler stated, "is a way of
beginning to see how govern-
ment serves the people." The
service would. detail how to get
benefits from government pro-
grams aiding senior citizens, the
handicapped and veterans.
One way of deseminating this
information, Wheeler suggested,
was through public service an-
nouncements on cable television.
He emphasized that while the
H u m a n Services Department
would "serve everybody, we
can't lose sight of the fact that
the needs of some people are
greater than others. These peo-
ple have a higher priority."
WHEELER ALSO used the
occasion to lash into the CDRS
application approved by a for-
mer Republican-dominated City
Council under the guidance of
ex-mayor Jim Stephenson.
"There are things with this
current proposal that I am not
happy with and half the (pres-
ent) Council is not happy with."
HUD's revenue sharing funds
include some $12 million tenta-
tively granted to the city over
a six year period. A proposal to
spend the funds is required to
be submitted to HUD for annual
THE MAYOR asserted that
money slated for certain pro-
grams, which are contained in
the present CDRS budget, do
not have to be spent this year.
The funds would thest be added
to next year's grant in an un-
"I can think of $250,000 (allot-
ed) for street repair" that could
be spent elsewhere, Wheeler de-
The proposed use of the street
repair money caused heated de-
bate in Council chambers last
spring, when s o m e Council
members argued that street re-
surfacing was not keeping in
the spirit of CDRS-that of aid-
ing low and moderate income
WHEELER promised that in
the future "there will be a more
coordinated local effort which
would more closely meet the
guidelines of CDRS."
Referring to the current CDRS
packet, Wheeler stated, "We
didn't see programs around
identified needs," there was no
"We will provide the CDRS
committee with more definitive
types of goals," he stated. The
CDRS citizens' committee was
set up by Stephenson to recom-
mend a budget for spending the
However, the committee suf-
fered charges of "rubber-stamp-
ing" GOP programs and failing
to carry out the intention of
CDRS. F o r m e r Republican
Councilman William Colburn
was appointed by Stephenson to
chair the committee.
Wheeler said that the citizens'
committee's charter, which ex-
pires in October, "can be flush-
ed out and some things done to
it. . . . I'm trying to" change
the structure of the committee,

reed instruments in a Talla-
hassee high school from '1944
until 1948, forming his first jazz
group there with the school's

emerged as Cannonball.
HE BECAME music director
at Dillard High School in Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., from 1958 until
1956, playing in his own south-

1948 and 1950. He served a

New York when he appeared

Bob Rafelson's 1970
5 EASY PIECES
Of all NICHOLSON'S films to date, this is the one that belongs solely to
him. Bobby Dupee, musician and rich boy turned oil-rigger, is alienated,
dissatisfied, intolerant. The western landscape photogrophy is beautiful.
The character is highly contemporary. Nicholson is brilliant. Susan Ans-
Poch, Karen Black, Sally Struthers.
