WASHINGTON, June 26 -(W)
A fifty-million-dollar program for
training young people and supplying
them with jobs was put under way
today by President Roosevelt.
Officials estimated that the plan
would take care of half a million
young men and women between 16
and 25. Upward of the same number
are to be helped by the Civilian Con-
servation Corps.
"The yield on the investment should
be high," said Mr. Roosevelt in an-
nouncing the program.
The new plan was divided into four
sections designed to:
Give young persons work in private
Train and re-train them for pri-
vate employment.
Allow them to finish high school and
Give them work relief on youth
National Chiefs Named
Miss Josephine Roche, assistant
secretary of the Treasury, and Au-
brey Williams, assistant to Relief
Administrator Harry L. Hopkins, were
put in charge of the new program.
Miss Roche declined for the time
being to amplify the presidential
statement, but said that the program
would get going very soon. Williams
was out of the city.
The money for the work was al-
located from the work relief fund.
In outlining the plan, the following
rates of payment were set: $15 a
month for youths on work relief; $6
a month for those in high school;
$15 a month for those in college.
In fixing the scale, Mr. Roosevelt
said:. "I have determined that we
shall do something for the unem-
ployed youth because we can ill af-
ford to lose the skill and energy of
these young men and women."
Under Miss Roche and Williams,
who will head the national setup, was
put a national advisory committee to
be comprised of representatives of
labor, business, agriculture, educa-
tion and youth.
Division for Each State
Along with this, in each state a
youth division was to be established,
headed by a state advisory commit-
tee to be appointed by the national
advisory organization. Similar repre-
sentation was to be had on the state
advisory groups to that comprising
the -national committee. A state di-
rector also was to be named in each
This director would mobilize in-
dustrial, commercial, agricultural and
educational forces to employ and help
youths without jobs, using both pub-
lic and private agencies. Other youth
committees would be appointed where
The program was designed to cover
all young men and women not regu-
larly in schools and not employed.
The CCC, in contrast, has stressed
taking young men whose families
were on relief rolls.

Employers would be asked to ap-
prentice the youths under arrange-
ments worked out locally. This would
cover not only the field of private
employment, but public works.
The President specified, also, that
where young persons were appren-
ticed to Government service it would
be "of the nature of field work for
classes to be farmer to train youth
for public service."
In carrying out the program, it was
specified that the facilities of fac-
tories, industries, plants and public
libraries should be used, with train-
ing classes wherever necessary or pos-
sible. The re-employment offices
would co-operate in placing youths in

WASHINGTON, June 26 - (E) -
Coming from behind with a courag-
eous last-minute rally, Charles Yates,
the defending champion from Geor-

rounds of the. National Intercollegi-
ate golf tournament today with a pair
of brilliant triumphs.
Carried to the 21st hole this morn-
ing before he downed Walter Emery

won the championship three years
ago, marched into the quarter-finals
over an easier route, as did Woodrow
Malloy of Michigan, who tied with
Willis Johnson of Charleston and
Charles Kocsis of Michigan for med-
al honors yesterday.
Johnson and Kocsis, however, fell
this afternoon, after surviving the
