Advisory Committee To Reconsider
Approved Lincoln Job Corps Center
A proposed Job Corps Cen

Base will be reconsidered by
the advisory committee of the
Lincoln Opportunity Team in
the light of new information,
according to Lincoln Mayor
Dean Petersen.
J. O. Grantham, of North

director of the proposed cen

committee Wednesday that
the federal Office of Econo

officially approved the urban
Job Corps program sub
mitted by Northern and the
He noted further that the
federal government is "will-,
ing to put an urban Job Corps
center in Lincoln."
The main problem yet to be
solved is the space to be used
for the center in relation to
space needed for other city
commercial uses.
Advisory committee mem
bers indicated that this con
flict of uses was one of the
ty members" and that as a
result, "the University now
finds itself in a 'half-million
dollar problem', according to
Hardin who was quoted in
the Feb. 10, 1966, Lincoln

problem occurred even though
University officials realized
that a problem could result
from their underestimation of

tools Capp used in answering
the questions which were writ

Free love, Viet Nam, birth

movie stars, civil rights,
demonstrations all were in

cynical comments.
Some of Capp's comments,
descriptions, jokes or under
statements in answer to ques

the audience were:
On free love: "The price
is right."
Opinions of 18 year-old-college

Talks with OEO officials in

may be willing to help with
possible new construction at
the Base necessary for a Job

for use commercially, Grant

Petersen, expressing con

said, "We have repeatedly
told them to come to Lincoln
to negotiate with us but they
haven't been willing."
Grantham was said to have
assured him that OEO of

He said the contract would
be for one year with a yearly
renewal for four successive
years. The five-year pro
gram could cost a total of
about $40 million.
The center would mean
about 600 workers with a pay

Corpsmen spending about
$500,000 a year.
In addition, Grantham said
the center would provide a

could be used as a retraining
