In 1954 the U.S. Supreme Court in the celebrity Brown vs. the Lee Thronlon Solves Mystery Of Who Stole Santa Claus CINCINNATI, 0„ Jan. 9 -Reasoning that a valuable Rembrandt (stolen from Cincinnati’s Taft Museum December 18) had recently been recovered via another local TV station, the five youths who abducted a plastic Santa from a Highland Heights, Ky. family picked WLWT for a “live” safe delivery of the $15 yard decoration. On Saturday, January 5 at 7:30 p.m., a surprised Lee Thornton, WLWT “Action News” weekend anchorwoman, received a call from a person who said their ransom of ten candy bars had been met and they would return the plastic figure to Channel 5. Within 45 minutes, the youths delivered Santa, bound in rope and chains and with tape over his eyes, to the WLW News Room, 9th and Elm Streets. In an exclusive TV interview with Miss Thornton, the abductors, their parka-hoods drawn over their faces, declared that “y’know, man, we didn't get much for Christmas and we needed the candy." “Action News” then called the rightful owners, the Fred Otto, Jr. family of Highland Heights, Kentucky, who came immediately to retrieve their Santa. Miss Paige Otto told Miss Thornton that Santa had been a part of the family for 5 years and they believe the thieves are prankster-acquaintances. The young Santa-nappers removed the figure from the Otto lawn December 30 and demanded a ransom of chocolate bars. If the ransom was not met, they threatened to cut off a plastic ear and send it to Che family. The incident drew national attention and fulP media publicity. The Ottos received calls from all over the nation. TheT\^5 “Action News" ‘SanU Recovery’ story was carried nationally over AP wires. Miss Lee Thornton, WLWT “Action News” weekend anchorwoman interviews the hooded plastic-Santa abductors when they delivered the bound and taped Santa Ulso pictured) safely to the Avco Broadcasting Corporation flagship station. Board of Education (popularly known as the School Desegregation case) in effect voted to outlaw segregation in the public schools in America, Since that time the attacks on the southern bastion of school segregation gradually moved forward in the face of massive efforts to thwart the intent of the court. For America it was an unusual experience because the Court used unusual sociological statistical data to Iwlp them arrive at _ their decision. The historic confrontation was an action brought by the NAACP with the honorable Thurgood Marshall, now himself a Supreme Court Justice, the advocate for the national NAACP. It was an historic decision dealing a broadside against de ‘ jure segregation in the South .. . at least that is were the first battle started. Northern school districts tsk tsked the recalcitrance of the South and editorial writers castigated the South for the obvious and pervasive efforts to mitigate the effects of the Court's action. Blacks fought through court after court trying to implement the decision that Black Press To Hold Workshop Gradison Attacks Luken Defends Administration promised integration, not only in the schools but throughout the country. After failures in the South the forces of integra ticwi turned to the North were de facto segregation ran rampant. Gerrymandering had been the order of the day. All sorts (rf subterfuges were to validate the segregation that existed in the North where the impact was far more telling than in the South. The smug attitudes of segregationists in the North fell and the masks of hate were stripped down to the bare bones. Again blacks went to court and in court after court signal victories indicating that the Courts intended to strike down all false plans to continue the status quo. Then the issue of bussing became the order of the day. Even though it was really a false issue since children have been bussed millions of miles to school for many many years. Whites grabbed this last straw and, with politicians who were anxious to' feed the fires of ignorance and racism, managed to create an issue which had popular appeal and jotped the issue of racism in the schools. Education suffered! (Continued on page 9) Janie!

My opponent believes, for example, that the. problems of . shortages and inflation can be solved by more government meddling in the economy --when it is apparent that it was precisely this, sort of meddling during the last decade which has produced our current dilemma. I’d like to think that the people of the First District would like to have the freedom to bargain with their employers for the wages they deserve, and to be able to purchase the goods they want without having to getj^ permission from Washington. I also h(^ that this campaign will focus on the issue of ~ what the Federal Government can.. .and cannot.. .do to affect the quality of our lives. The last decade has witnessed an awesome investment of talent and resources in activities which have sounded good but have performed powly. Mr. Luken’s record of more and more spending in the City Council suggests that he’d feel right at home with a fx-edominately - Democratic Congress which ' has experimented with its hunches and with yoiir money. Promises have been made, and they have not been kept. Hopes have been raised, and they have not been answered. What is needed, 1 believe, is a complete re-thinking of the' basic asumptions which have afflicted the Congressional majority over the last few years. We need to elevate the place of the individual In the scheme of things. We need to recognize that the Federal Government is staffed by mere mortals who-hard as they might try-are not miracle-(Continued on page 9) Appointed FHA Director Croups Attack-Black Law Studept Program New York, Jan. 9. . . .Young people from minority groups should be encouraged and helped ■ to prepare ^or professional careers, but they should be required to meet the academic standards demanded of (^her applicants for admission to professional schools, according to a brief amid ;^urlae tha't has just been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court. The brief, submitted by four ■ w‘ganlzatior» copcemed with “ the situation of religious and ethnic minorities, asked the * Supreme Court of the State of Washington which, in the case of De Funi? v. Odegaard, upheld the right of the State University to consider race as a factor in selecting students for its Law School. ’ While acknowledging that there were relatively few minority group members in the legal profession, the brief asserted that racially preferential admission policies in law schools were unconstitutional as well as unsound from a social policy standpoint. It declared that the “cumulative effects of the pervasive and deeply rooted discriminatory practices which heretofore have burdened people of color in America” must be rectified instead by a wide variety of “legitimate affirmative action programs” on every educational level. The four organizations, in whose names the brief was submitted, were the American Jewish Committee, a national' group -whose 40,000 members are concerned with protecting the civil and religious rights of Jews and other minorities; the Advocate Society, composed of 300 Polish-American lawyers from the greater Chicago area ; the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans, an “umbrella” organization that includes the various Italian-American social, fraternal, benevolent and service groups in Chicago and surrounding communities, and UNICO National, an Italian-American service and cTiUural organization with 50,000 members throughout the United States.

Young tries to project the inner expression he receives from a subject, a quality that separates specie from genre and portrait from drawing. Using either charcoal or pencil. Young draws his figures in a fairly represen tative style. He admits this is partially to maintain his drawing control and self-(Continued on page 9) \ Cilhert Young.
