The local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People launched a new program yesterday to help ease youth unemployment.
Dr. Albert Wheeler said the new program was result of the NAACP's receiving requests from local employers for help in finding potential employes with specific backgrounds and skills.
"In addition, new provisions in the manpower retraining program undoubtedly will create other opportunities for youth. In order to establish a file of individuals eligible for employment, or who may need retraining, the NAACP will conduct several community employment clinics in February," he said.
"Further information will be available as soon as further details are completed."
The board of the NAACP also was authorized to send a letter to the City Council to protest statements attributed to Assistant City Attorney S. J. Elden, in which he implied in court that integrationists or civil rights groups threw a bomb at the Discount Barber Shop, and to ask Mayor Cecil Creal for clarification for a statement that he would back the police department in anything it did.
