Ghetto Areasj 6 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 ghettojf are shortchanged in the basic services amply supplied to white neighborhoods are long standing , .but they have reached a new ivytevel in 17 cities recently sur" • veyed by Associated Press •, member newspapers.

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 also 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 solutions, they have not found the money to extend them beyond pilot programs to all their discontented 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 oity 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 Business & Professional Directory I W.

"Woman," an exhibition of more than 500 photographs depicting all aspects of the feminine experience, from childhood to old age, from making war to marching for peace, from career to marriage, is being displayed simultaneously at the New York Cultural Center and Washington's Smithsonian Institution. Above, are three photos from what is termed the most extensive investigation ever attempted through photography into the nature and multifaceted role of woman around the globe. Questions, Answers {on U.S. 7ax Matters halls so residents can air their grievances without a potentially costly, fear-ridden and frustrating trip downtown. In virtually every city, officials 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 j chief queried about the prob- j lem: "We have more policemen I 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 Fred Tucker, a Flint city councilman both say: "They are policing us rather than protecting us." Atlanta's Negro vice mayor, Maynard Jackson, sees problems of both discrimination and faulty distribution of services. "One factor probably is that 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. In New Orleans, John E. Cassreino Sr.. director of the Thanksgiving UPW Service (Times Herald News Service) MANNING - The United Presbyterian Women met at the church on Friday afternoon, Nov. 6. A Thanksgiving service was conducted by Fredda Hinz, with Bonita Hagedorn as pianist. The anual thank offering was given during the service. A film strip, "Crusade Against Hunger" concluded the service. Wynona Hill gave a resume of the fall workshop held at Vail, which 13 women attended. Sewing chairman Lillian Mohr completed a lap robe for the Presbyterian Home at Ackley and rolled bandages, a project assigned at the Vail meeting. The president reported that the executive board had met to Sanitation Department, said the I ma k e out goal s , neets for the BABY'S LAYETTE fault lies with the ghetto dwell' er. 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 lbs., per collection. The problem, as Cassreino sees it, is that in ghetto areas many residents fail to follow the rules. — with a ^ BABY RECORD Keep^a-complete record of ft^aby 's health.Titfie cute things he sai$ and does... m words and photopaphs.

(This column of questions and answers on federal tax matters Is provided by the local office of the U. S. Internal Revenue Service and Is published as a public service to taxpayers. The column answers questions most, frequently asked by taxpayers.) Q — I want to put in for somo oxpensos I forgot to claim on my ineomo tax return last year. How do I do it and whon will I get my refund? A — To make a change in your tax return obtain a copy of Form 1040X from your local IRS office, enter the required information and send it to the IRS service center for your region. Generally, you can make a change in your return anytime within three years from the date it was due. Interest of 6 per cent a year will be added to your refund which you should receive in 3 -5 weeks. Q — I just told a vacation home I owned. Can I invest the profit I made on it in a trailer and avoid paying taxes? A —- No, you cannot. The tax law provision that permits the postponement of taxes on the gain from the sale of a home applies only to the taxpayer's principal residence. A vacation home is not covered. Q — I moved here recently when I changed jobs. Can I deduct my living expenses while I'm getting settled in a new place? A — You may be able to deduct a portion of your living expenses under changes in the law made by the 1969 Tax Reform Act. If you qualify, meals and lodging while occupying temporary quarters at the new job location for up to 30 days after obtaining employment may be deductible. The maximum deduction allowed for these expenses to $1,000. For details on moving expenses, send a post card to your IRS district office and ask for a copy of Publication 521, Tax Information on Moving Expenses. It's free. Q — My children live with me not with my ex-husband under the terms of our divorce* Does that mean I claim them as dependents? A — Yes, the general rule covering children of divorced or separated parents is that the parent who has custody for the greater part of the year is entitled to claim the dependency exemption. There are ex* ceptions to this rule, however, depending on the actual terms of the divorce and the amount of support furnished by you and your former husband. Don't forget about the other dependency tests. They have to be met, too, to claim these examptions. For more information, send a post card to your IRS district office and ask for a copy of Publication 501, "Your Exemptions and Exemptions for Dependents."
