Cincinnati Herald (Newspaper) - August 3, 1974, Cincinnati, Ohio U. C. NAMES BLACK VEEP CITY Ot SlLVEKTO:S DISCRIMINATES Does the City of Silverton, with a growing population of blacks, discriminate against blacks in their hiring practices. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission believes it does. In a capitalizati(Mi of its report the Ohio Civil Rights Commission announced that the Commissioners were considering a recommendation of Probable Cause which came from its Southwest office in Cincinnati. According to the report from the Commissions news office based its following the Commission findings on the allegations; Kenneth Ware, Perry Love, Jimmy Lee Phillips, McKinley Cooper, and Von Verlin Hickey, allege that the company engaged in unlawful employment practices on the basis of race. Ware and Cooper allege they were discharged because they are black. Love alleges that he was suspended because he filed a charge with the OCRC. Hickey alleges that he was forced to resign because he filed a charge with the Commission. Complainants Ware, Hickey, Love, and Phillips allege that black employees were treated differently then white employees. They further allege that blacks were referred to as "niggers.” The complainants live in Silverton and claim they have been denied employment in the Service Department. As a result of the decision, joined in by Rev. Samuel Wright, a member of the (Continued on Page 12) Dwight Tiller>, 26-year-old Assistant City Solicitor for the city of Cincinnati, has been appointed Assistant Executive Vice President for Administration and Associate University Counsel at the University of Cincinnati.

President Warren Bennis, who made the announcement, said the University is fortunate to have persuaded Tillery to join it "at a time when his unique combination of background and professional skill is in such high demand.” He said Tillery has an impressive record and brings to the. University "both experience and energy that we badly need.” O’Neil called Tillery’s appointment "a stroke of good fortune for the University and a source of great personal satisfaction. We are extremely lucky to have such a promising young attorney joining our administrative group. Not only is he a U.C. graduate who knows the University well; he has the benefit of some first rate legal experience in the city solicitor’s office. Tillery, a 1966 graduate of Withrow High School in Cincinnati, was an honor student and recipient of five Tillvrv Tony Brown Scores Nielsen Ratings scholarships, including one to the University of Michigan Law School where he graduated in 1972. At U.C., Tillery was President of United Black Association and worked with the Men’s Advisory System, Inter-Group Communications Committee, Afro-American Search Committee, Admissions Advisory Committee and Off-Campus Housing Committee.

Douglas The son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Wadsworth Douglas recently received his Ph.D. Degree in Latin-American History from the University of Wisconsin. During his elementary school days he attended Dyer, Hoffman and Douglas Schools. After completing his college preparatory studies at Walnut Hills High School he enrolled at the University of Cincinnati and gradúa ted with honors receiving his A.B. and B.S. Degrees as well as a teaching certificate. He was immediately accepted into a Masters Ph.D. program in the history department of the University of Wisconsin.

His appointment as Professor of Latin-American History at Lake Forest University, Lake Forest, Illinois, begins in September. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. In a resolution passed by the National Newspaper Publishers Association at its recent convention, the Black community was urged not to accept a compromise proposal from the Senate Communications Subcommittee in its consideration of license renewal legislation for radio and television. Since our first editorial, the Subcommittee, has hinted that it wishes to retain the current 3-year license term for broadcasters, while still giving the broadcast monopolists permanent. unchallengeable licenses no matter how often they are technically "renewed.” The only way the F.C.C. could order a station to improve, or to be replaced by a new Black licensee, is if the incumbent were found to be operating with gross disregard for the public interest. It is these reduced standards for license renewal, and the greater protection for the media monopolists, which make the legislation so dangerous to the Black community. Citizen participation in the license (Continued'on Page 5) The prestigious A. C. Nielsen Company, well known for its rating system of television programs, has issued a statement refuting BLACK JOURNAL Executive Producer and university professor Tony Brown’s charge that the Nielsen ratings do not measure Blacks as well as it measures Whites who watch television. But Brown points out that the Nielsen denial itself is proof of his assertion that their sample cannot accurately measure the response of Blacks to Black oriented television programs. ‘‘Their refutation of my charge simply documents our earlier finding, i.e., that the Nielsen measures Whites watching a Black program, rather than Blacks watching a Black program,’* said the former dean of Howard University’s School of Communications. “The Nielsen Company, in response to my analysis, states that about 15 percent of their sample is Black, meaning that 85 percent is Whitte. That’s exactly what I said and that’s exactly what’s wrong with their rating system, when attempting to accurately measure Blacks responding to Black oriented programs. When this sample ratio is applied to a Black program, we definitely are measuring its popularity in predominantly White communities.” The Emmy Award winning producer concluded, ‘‘Related to Blacks, the present practice of television audience ratings is comparable to questioning dog owners about the popularity of cat food.” Brown defended the application of his Inverse Race Ratio, or the Black Factor (X), to reverse the White-Black ratio of 10 Whites to one Black and use a 90 percent (Continued on Page 5) It’s Fair Time Welfare Clan Roy Wilkins Supports Johnson Top Job Goes Arrested In $ 80,000 Home NEW YORK - Members of a Bronx family receiving $246.20 bi-weekly welfare checks have been arrested in their $80,000 home on charges of a large scale heroin and gambling operation, but the local Social Services agency is not dismayed. _ Benjamin Katz, director of the Tremont Social Services office, said, ‘The case was handled entirely in accordance with our procedures. ‘‘We knew about the type of house they had,” said Katz. "When they first went on welfare (1966), we put a lien on the property. We’ve held the mortgage jointly ever since.” checks to Mrs. Foster were for her six dependent children. She has six other financially independent children living with her, but Katz maintained state law allows working children to keep their earnings. Even if fraud is found, he said, "we’ve really lost no money since we actually have ownership of the house.” According to police, the house of Mrs. Dorothy S. Foster and family contained plush wall-to-wall carpeting, six color TV sets and about $50,(X)0 in furnishings. Katz explained the welfare Police reportedly seized $100,000 worth of drugs, an apparently stolen police revolver and slips indicating a $5,000 a week gambling operation. Six family members were aerested. Two older sons and a daughter-in-law are held on bail and face mandatory life sentences on drug selling charges. Mrs. Foster was released on $35,000 bail on drug possession charges. The disposition on two others is still pending. The academic discussion between the local branch NAACP president, J. C. Johnson and a group of black social workers known as the Black Catalyst was enlivened this week when Johnson won the support of Roy Wilkins, executive director of the national organization. Wilkins, in a letter dated July 25, 1974 Wilkins wrote to Johnson the following excerpts: "... you have correctly set forth the Association’s position on this very frankly ... The Cincinnati Black Catalyst group is certainly not performing any service for adoptable minority group children by taking such a position.” Johnson and the Black Catalyst group came to odds when the group announced that they were seeking a moratorium on trans-racial adoptions because they had supportive evidence and research information to show that adoption of black children by white families had an adverse effect on the black child. The request for a moratorium was rejected. Johnson, on behalf of the branch scored the request as To M. Sharp Mack Sharp, well known Cincinnatian, has been appointed to the high ranking job ever held by a black in the Ohio Department of Liquor Control. Sharp, with 25-years service with the Department has been promoted to Chief of the Permit Division by Director Richard Guggenheim, himself a Cincinnatian and former chairman of the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Sharp began his career as an investigator in enforcement, moved to the permit division and has recently served as assistant to the director. According to Senator William F. Bowen, Sharp will assume duties immediately. Theodore M.

Initially the group began what could have been a counter dialogue between the NAACP and the Catalyst group, but finally requested that Johnson meet with them to discuss the problem and learn the facts.

But most Palestinian refugees are not smiling, because no plans have yet been made for millions of them to return to their native villages. Some have been camping in the desert for nearly 30 years.

There are second and even third generations of refugees in these camps. Some were driven from camps in the Six Day War of 1966 to settle in new shelters. Basil Aql, an articulate spokesman for the Palestinian Liberation Movement, told us quite pointedly that the Middle East matter cannot be solved until a full resolution is made of the refugee question.
