NEW YORK - NAACP Executive Director Roy Wilkins told President Ford that his “extremely dangerous statements” on a Federal district judge’s order calling for cross-district integration of Boston public schools will only encourage the continued opposition by white parents and could “result in the maiming or killing of black children.” The charge by Mr. Wilkins came after President Ford said In a nationally televised news conference on Oct. 9th that he deplored the violence in Boston, bul “I respectfully disagree with the judge’s order.” He said that: “The court decision in that case, in my judgement, was not the best solution to quality education in Boston. I have consistently opposed forced busing to achieve racial balance as a solution to quality education.” Mr. Ford’s statement, and its timing, deeply troubled Mr. Wilkins, who felt that it was highly inflammatory. Two weeks ago, Mr. Wilkins, while on a visit to the troubled city, told newsmen that Boston, which was the cradle of the abolitionist movement, should be “ashamed” of the violence. He said that the situation was “inexcusable” and that it did not “seem like it’s been 20 years since Little Rock.” The text of Mr. Wilkins’ telegram to Mr. Ford reads: “Your crushing and extremely dangerous statement on national television that you do not approve of what you call forced busing will encourage the defiance of whites in South Boston who will agree with your respectful disagreement with the courts. It could result in the maiming or killing of black children.” Only the previous day, Mr. Wilkins had complained to Mr. Ford about the rising tide of violence in that city, where white parents have all but prevented the implementation of an integration order by Federal Judge W. Arthur Garrity that was handed down last June. ~ On Monday, Oct. 7, the beginning of the fourth week of the school integration plan, a crowd of white people attacked a lone black motirist named Andrea Jean-Louis. He (Continued on page 10) In some areas of the community the conviction of James Hardy, 33, described by the white media as variously a black activist or black militant, is a classic case of overkill. Hardy was convicted last week in the courtrown of Common Pleas Judge William R. Matthews to 3 to 10 years in prison for supposedly writing a threatening letter to police Chief Carl Goodin. Interesting aspects of the case include the fact that Hardy, though represented by attorney Leslie Gaines, acted in his own defense and, according to Gaines,did a respectable job. The Cincinnati Herald received an actual copy of the letter Hardy was convicted of sending, a letter which also went to the Mayor, Safety Director, Model Cities and the City Manager, and, after rereading it several times, failed to fine where it actually threatened the police chief. While the language in the letter seems intimidating questions arising from the conviction need answering. Why didn’t the others sent copies of the letter feel intimidated? Why, if the report is true, it was necessary for a secret grand jury indictment during which Goodwin did not appear? Was it ever really shown that Hardy’s handwriting was the same as on the letter? Why did Judge Matthews refuse to recognize a U.S. Supreme Court Decision wherein LBJ was threatened. The Court acquitted the letter writer. Is there a Get Hardy out of (Continued on page 10) Saxbe Dispatches D Of J To Boston Attorney (General William-B. Saxbe announced today that five Department of Justice attorneys will go to Boston, Massachusetts tomorrow to help insure prompt enforcement of federal criminal civil rights laws during the school desegregation disturbances. The attorneys will be under the supervision of U.S. Attorney James N. Gabriel and will remain in Boston as long as they are needed. Mr. Saxbe also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been alerted to investigate any reported violations of federal criminal civil rights laws. The commitment to lend lawyers to the'HJ.S. Attorney’s office was made to U.S. District Court Judge W. Ar thur Garrity in Boston yesterday by K. William O’Connor, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. ^ Mr. O’Connor represented the Juftjtice Department at a hearing conducted by Judge Garrity to consider a request from Boston Mayor Kevin White for at least 125 federal marshals. The five attorneys, all from the Civil Rights Division, will be appointed special attorneys with the Justice Department, enabling them to go before grand juries and seek indictments. The laws involved concern conspiracy against the rights of citizens, deprivation of rights under color of law, (Continued on page 10) SICKLE CELL INFO Walnut Hills Jim Luken Seeks Buying Club Bv David Godfrey Second Te*’™ Jim Luken. older brother of Congressman Tom Luken is seeking his second term in the Ohio House. As a representative of the 24th House District and leader of local 98, mild association union, Luken believes that he has now made his own political record. Admittedly a long time union leader, well known in, AFL-CIO circles Luken walked in the shadow of his younger brother Councilman, mayor and Congressman Tom. This was not an unhappy position for Jim who gave undivided support for his brother in all of his campaigns and is just now beginning to J. I.liken make his move in his own campaign. Jim Luken believes that a candidate should run on his record and proudly points out his own liberal record. He served on the labor Committee in the house was in the forfront when it came to supporting new legislation for Workmen Compensation and Unemployment Compensation for unemployed workers; Strongly supported the Ohio Minimum Wage Act and voted to support Women’s Rights under House Bill 610 which also carried additional powers for the Civil Rights Commission. Luken served for four years on the old Mayors Friendly Relations Committee pushing ideas in an era when race relations needed bolstering by liberal thinking. As a member of the 110th. Ohio General Assembly his record on the Labor Commerce, Judiciary and Local Government committees has been very good. He led the fight for local enrollment in U.C. and has supported increaded State aid for elementary education. With the above record Jim Luken feels he is now an identifiable personality in his own right. Folks are constantly searching for new ideas under the sun. With the price of food rising, heating oils rising, and the availability of full-time meaningful employment and the purchase amount of a dollar declining, many folks hope Ford has a better idea. The Walnut Hills Food Buying Club just may be a con-.sumers’ solution to the rising cost of food. Here is the story. Several years ago some good neighbors got a notion that if they formed a club, a non-profit organization for the purpose of investment, if you will, that they could buy canned goods, meats and other items inexpensively and consequently have more monies left over to spend on necessities like beer. They reasoned that food had to be viewed as an investment. The good neighbors had the inner fortitude, nutritional appetites and sufficient foresightedness to reason food was here long before Weight Watchers and if the price of food continued to rise they might become involuntary weight watchers and stomach growlers. So, like I said, they founded the Walnut Hills Food Buying Club. This reporter learned while snooping stubbornly through the scrolls of an anachronistic Walnut Hills Area Council that the food buying club receives some assistance from Victory Neighborhood Services, a community-service organization created in 1965 to better the quality of life for persons living in Walnut Hills. The altruistic-minded area council provided the club with enough backing to unlock the door in order that any food-minded citizen can pay five dollars if he is willing to contribute at least two hours per month im voluntary service and join the club and possibly fight-the hungries. Incidentally, the above is no bull. In the spirit of reporting good news this reporter interviewed some of the persons who rejected the notion of a food buying club. The following information was uncovered. The infamous Miss Cabbagehead, a local resident of Walnut Hills, ■ rejected the idea of belonging to a food buying club because in her words, “I wouldn’t join because membership in the club implies that I can’t budget my money nor do I know how to shop for food.” Another resident, a Mrs. Gourmet, said that she ate the idea up but was “displeased because the club would not accept food stamps.” Mr. Mann typifies many of the (Continued on page 10) THE H’LL TEX T OF LETTER SEXT TO PUBLIC OFFICIALS The following is a text of the letter, signed "S.L.A.,” introduced yestwday in the trial of James Hardy, 33, who is accused of writing an intimidating letter to Police Chief Carl V. Goodin: “Orders arriving late yesterday afternoon from our Superior Officers in California demanded that we, the Regional Chapter of the “Symbionese Liberation Army,” immediately serve warning to the Politicians and Law Enforcement Agencies of Cincinnati, pointing out that: “1. Henceforth, all Politicians who don’t start relating to the needs of Blacks, poor whites and other deprived people promptly, can prepare to “make their bed in Hell.” “2. That each attack by police on Black and Poor Whites, most definitely shall necessitate retaliatory violence, on the Police Department-three times greater than any violence demon-‘strated in Vietnam, and World Wars One and Two. “3. That anyone selling or giving drugs to children will automatically be seriously beaten, killed, or both. That persons working in federally funded programs, such as Model Cities, C.A.C., R.N.C.A., etc., etc., had better become either seriously involved in their efforts to assist the people or make funeral arrangements now. Save valuable time by not seeking our identity. For we are the killer tornado.
