test of new
jobs plan
DETROIT (UPI) - Michigan will be
the testing ground for a new federal job
training program, Gov. James Blan-
Sard said yesterday, indicating the
ogram must succeed in Michigan if it
is to succeed in other states.
"We not only have the state with the
highest unemployment in the nation but
one: that has suffered through that
(unemployment) for some years,"
Blanchard told the 50-member
Michigan Job Training Coordinating
Council at its first meeting.
BLANCHARD told the council,
charged with implementing the federal
rogram to replace the Comprehensive
mployment Training Act (CETA) that
the new program "will be one of the
major instruments for trying to get our
people back to work.
"We're not alone in Michigan. We're
in the middle of an industrial disaster"
affecting other states, Blanchard said.
"It's not just automobiles ... it's steel,
glass ... housing, construction . .. in
the Midwest industrial heartland.
"IF WE can't make the job training
*artnerships act work in Michigan -
where it's needed most - then I don't
know where it will work," the governor
said. "If we can't work this out, I don't
know where it will happen."
The new job training act, unlike
CETA, turns full responsibility for em-
ployment training over to the states and
includes administrative changes in how
the federal funds are handled.

which goes into effect Oct. 1, trains

Watt bans rock bands
from July 4 party

WASHINGTON - Interior Secretary
James Watt says the capital's annual
Fourth of July celebration is despoiled
by "rock bands attracting the wrong
element." So he's banned their music in
favor of "patriotic and family-
oriented" Wayne Newton, the king of
the Las Vegas casinos.
The Beach Boys and The Grass
Roots, groups that have drawn hun-
dreds of thousands of people in the past
three years, will be replaced this year
by Newton and the U. S. Army Blues
Band as warmups for the traditional
fireworks display on the Mall.
WATT, IN an interview with
theWashington Post published yester-
day, said rock music has attracted the
"wrong element" to the annual event
that features a dazzling fireworks
"We are trying to have an impact for
wholesomeness," Watt said. "July
Fourth will be atraditional ceremony
for the family and for solid, clean
American lives."
Watt said he was moving to change
the atmosphere around the festivities

because of "repulsive" reports in the
past two yers of "high drug use, high
alcoholism, broken bottles, some in-
jured people, some fights."
WATT'S decision prompted outrage
from rock fans, with Washington rock
radio station WQRX receiving a
barrage of telephone calls.
"Everybody felt Watt was totally out
of line because the Beach Boys, to
people who are 40 and under, are all-
American guys. They are the American
group and people just couldn't figure
out what Watt was talking about," said
morning show co-host Jim Elliott.
WRQX produced /the 1980 and 1981
Beach Boys concerts and last year
featured the group The Grass Roots.
Elliott said Newton is "a great enter-
tainer in (Las) Vegas, but he hasn't had
a hit in10 or11years.
