PAGE 6 Company Boycotts Catholic Schools London (NC) -- An English elec- tronics company has banned sales of its equipment to Catholic schools on "conscientious grounds." The directors and secretary of the company, Balmoral Elec- tronics of St. Albans near London, are all Christian Brethren. They believe that selling their equipment to people whose faith is contrary to their own is wrong and already have refused four appli- cations from Catholic schools for their educational tape play-back equipment of which they are the sole suppliers. D. Goodman, manager ofagroup of companies of which Balmoral Electronics is a member, and himself a Baptist choirmaster, told the press he was happy about the decision. C.R.S. Rejects Nigeria Charge New York (NC) --The head of one of the major beneficiaries of the U. S. government's dona- tion of eight cargo planes to aid Biafran relief efforts has dis- missed as "completely ground- less" Nigerian charges that the planes may be used to ship arms to Biafra. Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom, head of U. S. Catholic Relief Ser- vices -- one of the religious re- lief agencies which will share with the International Red Cross eight former U. S. military trans- ports for the Biafra airlift-- said the agencies "have only one purpose: to bring food and med- icine to the hundreds of thousands of innocent humans facing starva- tion." The bishop's statement was made the day after Nigeria's head of state, Maj. C, en Yakubu Gowon, summoned U. S. Ambassador El- bert Mathews and warned him that the use of U. S. planes in the re- What's Happening Around The Diocese (This Guardian feature is de- signed to serve all the Catholic organizations in the Diocese of Little Rock.

NORTH LITTLE ROCK The North Little Rock Deanery of the Diocesan Council of Cath- olic Women will meet Tuesday, January 28, at 7:30 P.M. in St. Anne's parish hall. Mrs. Joseph Tresp, president, has appointed the following Dean- ery chairman: Miss Mary Ann Chudy and Mrs. Leo Zanoff, Church Communities; Mrs. Anna Massey and Mrs. Trudy Fallon, Organi- zation Services; Mrs. Clarence Boechman and Mrs. Mary Gis- ler, International Affairs; Miss Angie Osborn and Mrs. Cecilia Dasback, Community Affairs; Mrs. R.

S. transports -- which will be turned over to the relief agencies and flown by civilian crews--car- ried no guarantee that they will not be used to transport arms to Biafra. The government-owned Lagos Morning Post called the U. S. relief aid "a hostile act." The Lagos government has repeatedly charged that the shipment of food and medicine to Biafra -- in which it is estimated some 1,000 persons starve daily -- is prolonging the 18-month-old war and contributing to, rather than halting, starvation.
