'THE GUARDIAN.'AuG. 23. 1974 PAGE 3 a Js .,- =00nsion Increases South Korean Bishop Given 15.Year Prison Sentence for Opposing Park but received a three-year suspended sentence. Protestant minister Park Hyun-Kyoo and Kim Dong-Gil, a history professor at Yonsei University, also were sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. Dr. Kim Chan- Kook, dean of Yonsei Univer- sity's theological college, received a 10-year sentence. Reports from Seoul say Bishop Tji was transferred from a hospital to a prison upon his conviction. Bishop Tji was arrested July 6 upon his return from a trip abroad, for allegedly giving about $2,900 to Korean poet Kim Chi Ha for antigovernment student demonstrators.

"Black scholars are begin- ning to recognize an additional form of racism that is emerging which may be extremely dif- ficult to expose," he said. Ac- cording to Stocks, who cited one black psychologist on the subject of tests, the new form of racism "is housed in univer- sities, nurtured in industry and cloaked in the language of rational science." He said that black observers believe that economic survival of the testing industry depends on its "symbiotic relationship" with educational institutions. Both the testing industry and educational institutions have constructed elaborate defenses against criticism, he charged. Educational institutions argue that testing is the fairest way to determine every child's ability. "But no matter which argument one believes, the results are the same -- black children are placed "in disproportionate numbers" in classes for mentally retarded or special education classes, or at lower levels of educational instruction.

Bishop Tji was aware that he would probably be arrested upon returning from Japan July 6. The day before his flight home, he told a friend: "I don't know what they'll do with me tomorrow. They might arrest me. If they are really foolish they will do it." So that he would not just "disappear" upon arriving at Seoul airport, the bishop made plans with Cardinal Stephen Kim of Seoul to be met there. Upon his arrest, the bishop was questioned continuously for approximately 30 hours by the South Korean Central In- telligence Agency. Denied sleep, and in an extremely fatigued condition, he signed a statement, but later said he was not sure what it contained. He was released after a meeting between Cardinal Kim and President Park. After his release, the bishop was confined to St. Mary's hospital here pending his trial which was to have begun on July 23. On that date, however, the government declared the trial postponed indefinitely. Bishop Tji left the hospital that same day, and upon in the school This falsely he said, that the Is related to a child's experiences. average black child, 'Often is a mismatching or between skills from his culture and uired for successful he declared.

Bishop John Choi Chae Seon of Pusan celebrated the Mass. A statement from the coun- try's bishops was posted outside the cathedral, declaring: "The violation of 'human rights is a fearful crime against God." Many persons remained at the cathedral throughout the night in an all-night prayer vigil. The presence of Catholics at the Protestant meeting and of Protestants at the Catholic meeting led some obervers to conclude that the two groups may be joining forces in op- positiion to the Park regime. Bishop Tji has headed the diocese of Won Ju since 1965. At one time he was chief of Catholic chaplains of the South Korean Army. He has been a frequent and outspoken dissenter from government policy since President Park's declaration of martial law in October 1972. Bishop Tji was placed under house arrest for a month for protesting Pirk's declaration. Watch For...
