Ghetto Areas Want Better City Services By MICHAEL J. SNIFFEN (Associated Press Writer) Better police protection is the most frequent demand of ghetto residents seeking improved city services around the nation. Complaints that ghetto^ are shortchanged in the basic services amply supplied to white neighborhoods are long standing but they have reached a new vieVel in 17 cities recently surveyed by Associated Press member newspapers. In cities that distribute services evenly over a geographical area and in cities that recently shifted more service to areas where the most people live, the , residents of ghettos are saying their services still are not equal 2for1 HOOVK CONVERTIBLE It Beats, as it Sweeps, as it Cleans Upright Vacuum Recommended by Carpet Experts HOOVER CONSTEUAHOM The canister that offers of what you want in a cleaner. Tank Type —Best for Above the Floor Cleaning HEIRES ELECTRIC 6 Tlmei Herald, Carroll, 1». Wednesday, Nov. 11, 1970 'to their needs. They want enough additional service to make their streets as safe and clean as those in white neighborhoods. The survey shows that demands for distribution of services according to need now overshadow lingering complaints of outright racial discrimination and have widened the many misunderstandings between city hall and the ghetto. By far the most prevalent complaint was one of insufficient, slow or misdirected police protection. But the list of inadequacies lalso included fire protection; street cleaning, repair and lighting; trash collection; sidewalk repair; public transit; recreation facilities; building code enforcement; water facilities and traffic control. In these areas, cities foot nearly all the bill, with little of the federal aid that has been so largely poured into housing, education and employment. So where cities have found so- i lutions, they have not found the money to extend them beyond pilot programs to all their dis- i contented citizens. Here are some of the recent developments: —Since July, blacks and Puerto Ricans in two neighborhoods of New York City have set garbage afire in the streets to protest poor collections. In another area, a street was barricaded with trash cans, —In San Francisco last month, residents of an integrated, isolated public housing project seized a city bus to dramatize their unmet demand for public transit. —Police in Flint, Mich., put special walking and scooter patrols in a model cities neighborhood, using federal funds, and cut crime by 23 per cent in the first month of operation. —The black vice president of St. Louis' board of alderman is ' in his seventh year of trying to get a street repaved. —Oklahoma City budgeted money—$100,000—for the first time this year for the removal of abandoned buildings. —The city administration in Atlanta has opened little city delightful to hold ., and heaven to "kiss.

In virtually every city, offi- there is a degree of racism involved which may or may not be conscious," he says. "Many cities think that when a neighborhood becomes predominantly black it is time to cut services because psychologically the city thinks black people are more accustomed to poorer services and unclean surroundings." New York's Sanitation Department has tried to meet the problems of distribution by making six garbage pickups a week in densely populated Harlem and among the expensive high-rise apartments on the upper East Side, while cutting collections to two a week in neighborhoods of one and two-family homes. But still there is trash on the streets of Harlem and relatively little on the upper East Side. Thanksgiving o Business & Professional Directory W. L. WARD, D.S.C.

Stuart I'prry — JMal 792-1)883 cials maintained that their services were evenly distributed if not weighted in favor of poorer neighborhoods where the problems are concentrated, but no city was without complaints. Most cities maintain that geographic areas are equally treated, some claim each person receives equal facilities, but few claim the total need is met. But it is in police protection that the greatest misunderstandings and conflicts arise. Eugene H. Tennis, community relations director for Rochester, N.Y., might have been speaking for every official and police chief queried about the problem: "We have more policemen per square block in the inner city than elsewhere in the city." That's where the crime is, says William J. O'Rourke, public safety commissioner for Wilmington, Del. Where police are concerned, complaints of racial discrimination are still heard. Howard H. Brown, director of Community Action for Greater Wilmington, Inc., and Fredj tlon Tucker, a Flint city councilman The problem, as Cassreino In New Orleans, John Cassreino Sr., director of E. the Sanitation Department, said the fault lies with the ghetto dweller. He said garbage is collected three days a week in all sections of the city and each resident is allowed to dispose of two 30-gallon cans of garbage plus three tied boxes or bundles of trash, not exceeding 75 Ibs., per collec- Dr. 0.
