PAGE 14 THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 7, 1969 Bishop Likens Newspaper to Mirror Covington, Ky. (NC) -- A bishop compared a newspaper to a mir- ror, stressing the distortions which both can reflect Bishop Richard H. Ackerman, C.S.Sp, of Covington, wrote: "A newspaper is like a mirror It reflects the modern scene; what is good and pleasant in it, and also what is otherwise. And since a mirror is the product of human workmanship, it is not perfect. It can possibly distort what it reflects, and if it is too small, it cammt reveal the whole picture." The bishop's views were ex- pressed in a column in the Mes- senger, urging strong diocesan support of the diocesan news- paper He said: "The role of a messenger is to report, in pro- per perspective, the news, good and bad; to relate the opinions of responsible people; to deliver the decrees of authority clearly as statements of fact. Unless, like Gabriel, the messenger be an an- gel, he is subject to human frail- ty," Bishop Ackerman said "because we live in an age of 'change and upset' it is entirely possible that the voice of 'the messenger' who heralds the news of the Catho- lic-Christian world, disturbs us more than it would in a calmer day."

Itwill Jewish Agencg Blames Black Extremists for New New York (NC) -- Black ex- tremists are responsible largely for "raw, undisguised" anti- Semitism in New York, the Anti- Defamation League of B'nai B'rith charged in a 25-page report is- sued here. The report asserted that the crisis level has been reached in the city schools and has been un- checked by public authorities. It said the situation has been build- ing for the last two years. Dote Schary, league national chairman, said patience and re- straint have been ineffective and "we no longer can abide the growing tide of anti-Semitism." "Our record in the struggle for black opportunity is a clear and voluminous one, and we shall continue our work in this area because we know the majority of black citizens in America are in accord with us," Schary said. He noted recent statements by "clear-thinking and broadly rep- resentative Negro leaders -- Roy Wilkins, Bayard austin and Whitney Young among them -- have warned the black com- munity of the dangers of failing to isolate and curtail black anti-semitism." The league's report made the following conclusions about anti- Semitism by blacks in and around the city public "1. R has been largely by black extrel "P.. Its growth by failure of city lic officials to and strongly enough, move from positions those who have tism," including of the Council A the city's official ency." "3.

Bishop Swunstrom Denies Motivates C.R.S. Relief for New York (NC) -- The exe- cutive director of the overseas relief agency of U. S. Catholics disputed charges that the Biafra mercy airlift conducted by U.S. and European church relief agen- cies is politically motivated Bishop Edward E Swanstrom, executive director of Catholic Relief Services, responding to the charges, issued the following statement at CP, S headquarters here: "We regret immensely tolearn that the church groups have been accused of political motivation in their sincere efforts to assist the victims of the present con- flict in Nigeria. "Speaking for our agency, Cath- olic Relief Services, which is con- ducting programs of welfare as- sistance in more than 60 coun- tries and has maintained a pro- gram in Nigeria since 1957, it should be noted that we are as- sisting the victims on both sides of the present conflict. "In fact, because numbers involved ability of air and our relief supplieS, being given to the in the war zone control of of Nigeria than what the area not under "We humbly in itself should tivation is emphatically add thS tl else but that."
