A planned McDonald's restaurant at Lankershim Boulevard and Riverside Drive has agreed to make a special effort to hire youths from North Hollywood and Studio City when it begins shopping for employees, according to the president of the Studio City Residents Assn. Tony Lucente, who worked with the fast-food chain to create a project that was acceptable to the community, said his group would like McDonald's to hold a recruiting session at North Hollywood High School.

McDonald's Corp. has turned up the heat in the fast-food business. If franchisees go along with the plan, the world's largest restaurant chain will launch its biggest nationwide promotion ever, featuring 55-cent sandwiches, down from about $1.95 for a Big Mac, according to franchisee sources Wednesday. The plan is a bold step to lure customers into McDonald's restaurants in the face of intense competition in the nation's $100-billion fast-food business, analysts said.

Hungary's second McDonald's fast food restaurant opened today in an airy railroad station which was constructed by the company that built the Eiffel Tower. "Without exaggeration I can say it is the most beautiful McDonald's in Europe," said Endre Fazekas, managing director of the U.S.-Hungarian joint venture responsible for Big Macs in Hungary. Hungary's first McDonald's restaurant, the first in any Warsaw Pact country, was opened in central Budapest two years ago.

KIDS VERSUS CARS: Burbank has extended its moratorium on drive-through restaurants until next summer, and caught in the middle is safety at a McDonald's playground.

Look for a smile today on Speedee's neon face in Downey. Officials are scheduled to announce today plans to restore, reopen and expand the nation's oldest surviving McDonald's hamburger stand. That McDonald's, at Lakewood Boulevard and Florence Avenue, was closed 22 months ago, triggering nationwide protests from fans of the red-and-white tile restaurant and its striking golden arches. "I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it," Downey's Mayor Joyce Lawrence declared Wednesday.

Along with the Big Macs and fries, a McDonald's restaurant here is offering a new kind of shake: rides on McThriller, a high-tech attraction opening today. The 14-seat ride simulates 10 adventures, among them speeding down a city street on a motorcycle, gliding above the countryside in an ultra-light aircraft and making a bobsled run. The ride, which costs $2.50, lasts between 2 1/2 and 3 minutes.

Lt. William Hall holds one of the most powerful, and sensitive, jobs in the Los Angeles Police Department: investigating officers who have killed or wounded citizens. As head of the LAPD's officer-involved shooting team, Hall is called upon to expose his fellow cops to the harsh, often unforgiving, glare of public scrutiny. Now, however, it is Hall who stands in the beam of an unflattering spotlight.

Brushing tears from her cheeks, Montemayor, now 24, moved her camera Thursday through a crowd of 200 people outside Southwestern College for the dedication of a long-awaited monument to the slain. A student journalist at Southwestern College, she was assigned to cover the event.
