 NEARLY 10,000 ANSWER BOSTON GLOBE OFFER OF FREE SITUATION
 WANTED ADS FOR UNEMPLOYED
 BOSTON, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Globe's offer of free situation wanted advertisements in the Globe for unemployed people has drawn a total of 9,898 submissions, through Friday, March 13. The paper has received an average of 1,000 submissions every business day since it began the program March 1.
 In a limited time offer by the newspaper, unemployed individuals had the opportunity to submit a free five-line maximum situation wanted classified ad, outlining the kind of work they seek.
 Globe spokesman Richard P. Gulla said the range of jobs wanted is wide and varied. "We have listings across the spectrum -- accountants, bankers, engineers, laborers, truck drivers, paralegals, and more," said Gulla.
 Gulla said he expects more ads to come in the next few days, and it's likely that the total number of submissions will exceed 10,000. The postmark deadline for submitting ads was March 11.
 The situations wanted listings begin in the Globe on Monday, March 16 with two full pages containing nearly 1,100 entries. They will continue, at the average rate of one page a day, in the daily Globe until all of them have been published. A page will carry more than 500 listings.
 The public service program kicked off Sunday, March 1 with a quarter-page ad in the Globe's Sunday help wanted section announcing the offer. The ad contained a coupon to fill out and mail to the Globe. The coupon ad appeared twice again on Sunday, March 8.
 To reach businesses and companies that may have openings, the Globe will run print ads in its newspaper and air radio spots directing employers to the program as the listings appear.
 The Globe has also sent letters to executives of chambers of commerce in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and to chief executives of major companies in Massachusetts calling attention to the effort and suggesting that they use the listings as resources in seeking applicants for jobs.
