MEMBER BRADDOCK VOTES AGAINST HIMSELF Like an old-fashioned Chinese JugRernaught, the inaugural meeting of the newly elected Board of Education was rift with the passions which flared during the lame duck meeting of 1973 when the old Board voted in effect“to desegregate Cincinnati’s public schools. The first order of business was the organization of the new Board and. unexpectedly, the new Board ignored the credentials of the minority members and 'totally organized tbe Board without minority members in any effective position The newest black member of the Board, attorney Rotiert Braddock, surprised many observers when he, in effiitt, voted against himself in the new organization, This unusual event occurred when former Board president Ronald Temple suggested that there was a need for black leadership and the Board should name a black to a leadership post. Temple then nominated Braddock, who was elect ed with the conservative major- ginia Griffin was also nominated ity, to be elected vice-president and Braddock voted for her thus of the Board of Education.

OHIO SATURDAY, JANUARY 12. 1974 PRICE 20C PHONE 221-4440rA      __ Slate Has Neiv Jobless Par Law K. Itrwldovk What Ohio Bureau of Employment Services (OBES) Administrator William E. Games has termed "the most realistic Unemployment Compensation Law in Ohio history" goes into effect today. In view of the energy crisis and the unemployment resulting from it, the OBES Administrator said, many Ohioans will benefit from the new payment schedule.    ^ Games said the new law, which was signed by Governor John J. Gilligan on September 17, 1973, will: -- Increase payments to claimants. -- Provide for annual adjustment of the weekly maximum payments based on the average weekly state-wide wage. -- Allow employers to become eligible for reduced tax rates after one year instead of waiting for three years. -- Reduce the number of weeks a claimant has to work in order to secure the maximum number of weeks of Unemployment Compensation The law also provides mandatory Unemployment Compen sation covereage for employees of local government and school districts without requiring those political subdivisions to pay administrative costs of OBES. Games explained that under the new law, claimants with no dependents receive 50 percent of their average weekly wage up to the maximum permitted, while claimants with dependents receive 55 percent of their average weekly wage up to the máximums allowed by the law. Under the new rate schedule, maximum weekly Unemploy ment Compensation payments will be increased from $91 a week for the claimant with four or more dependents to $114 a week. The new rate schetlule affects both new and existing claims. ' The claimant with no dei>en-dents will receive a maximum of $77 a week, up from" $60 a week under the old schedule; the claimants with one dependent will receive a maximum of $94 a week, an increase from the $70 a week they were receiving; the claimant with two (Continued on Page 10) JacV And Jill To Honor Berrv Police Defend    ExpCrtS    ViCW    Of w    "    ■    ,    i    . Basic Black Beauty Black Muslims CHICAGO - Police Chiefs, and law enforcement officials In Newark, Los Angeles, Chicago, Compton, New Orleans, Washington D.C., Atlanta and New York disputed printed charges of "grave concern" over crime among Muslim followers of the Honorable Elijaj) Muhammed, in interviews given to Muhammad Speaks, the official Muslim newspaper. "They stand out; they’re conspicuously trying to do something positive, and that’s dif-'ferent in inany^jjarts of the Black community," Edward L. Kerr, Director of Newark, N.J. police said. ^. . ’ '.The maiufestaUons of the Muslims have positive influences on the Black community," L.OS Angeles Police Captain Homer F. Broome stated, despite strained relations with Muslims in that city because of two unprovoked attacks against the unarmed Muslim Temple tiñere in 1962 and 1965. "Religious philosophy such as the Muslims’, can go a long way toward reducing crime even in the" most adverse circumstances," Sheriff Richard J. Elrod, of dense, urban Cook County (Chicago), 111., said. The slanderous charges that: "The sources said some factions of the Muslims were engaged in such activities as extortion,-cobbery and burglary, with theAjoney going to some of the leaded’ were wrlUeh.b6.

An age-old concern of women throughout the world has been that of the development and enhancement of their beauty -- inside, but more so, out. One expert. New York Beauty Editor, Susan Taylor, feels, however, that "a woman’s development of inner awareness and a positive feeling of self" is the basic foundation of any beauty regimen, especially that of the Black women. "You can’t look good on the outside if yoi^ don’t feel good a^ut yoiirkeli ' TiiStde,^ she states emphatically! As Beauty Editor of Essence, a magazine devoted solely to thj^Black woman, Ms. Taylor is playing an important role in the creation of "beautiful" Black women through image and word, and exhibits the culmination of these efforts in her Essence Beauty Annual (January ’74) --responding to thousands of requests from readers and the Hasir ftlark Heaiity public-at-large for in-depth coverage by a national publication on the specific beauty needs of the Black woman. Says Ms. Taylor, "No other magazine is equipped to deal with this area of concern; for not only is Essence the only publication ‘for’ Black women, we are also the only one ‘by’ Black.women, and as such are looked to and re<^':,ued as the experts in thi^ area." She continues, "You would never see more than a few pages, at most, in other women’s magazines dealing with a Black woman’s beauty needs. We felt we owed it to our 1,350,000 readers, a vast segment of whom comprise the most af-' fluent, discriminating purchasers of beauty products and aids, to develop a reference on beauty disciplines and general information on basic Black beauty from head to toe."

Berry on Saturday January 12, 1974, at 8:00 PM at the Xavier Center Theatre. The organisation chose Saturday January 12, 1974, as the date of. the program because this date is close to the an-’niversary of the birth of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, JT. We felt that the goals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mayor Theodore M. Berry for the betterment of mankind were and are similar. Mayor Theodore M.

More importantly he Is a magnificent human betti whose love for^ mankind is apparent in hb every act. The-format of the program will include the highlighting of significant events in Mayor Berry’s life. I am sure you will agree that television, radio, newspaper.

The 46-year-old attorney, unmarried adoptive mother and one-time stenographer’s aide, has not permitted poverty, racial prejudice or intolerance to bury her in a world dominated by the white, male professional. The Governor appointed Ms. Neál to the three^member Commission in June,™ 19T3, to represent the public interest. "The Governor’s appointment was a forward move for women in Ohio--especially Black women,” she said. “It proves that somethii^ is right with the world when a poor steno aide can become a member of a major state agency," 'To me, the Governor has shown a serious desire tode-' velop an affirmative action pro- Ihe i,oiernor And Friends gram in Ohio’s state government for women and for Blacks," Ms. Neal added.

Ours is a positiAie thrust, to demonstrate that the people have not ddst faith in the capacity of their government, but are demanding that confidence in it be restored. . ■ If we can get 30,000 signatures in the Republican First District, that demand will be clear. Jt _will be* a reaction' against "big money politics" by demonstrating that thousands of average citizens who may be presently “tuTned off" by government do really care.
