Banks Donate Training Center Funds: Local thrifts and savings banks donated $1 million to the Los Angeles Urban League to establish and run a program to train inner-city youths and guarantee them entry level jobs in the banks. About 100 people are expected to complete the program each year at a training center in Inglewood. Many of the candidates for the three-month instruction are expected to come from senior classes of local high schools, particularly in South-Central Los Angeles.
