Dr. Abraham Miller, associate professor of political science at the University of Cincinnati, said the Kerner reportr which depicted black rioters in the 1960s as among the better educated and higher paid of urban blacks, should be dismissed as inaccurate and misleading. Miller, who headed a University of Cincinnati research team that used much of the same material gathered by the Kerner researchers, reported that blacks who participated in the riots tended to be younger, less educated and from less stable homes than those who did not participate. Corretta King retreat on civil NEW YORK (UPI) The widow of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said that America has retreated to the point that when its people ask for help, they are "treated to benign neglect."

Jordan By GAY PAULEY NEW YORK (UPI) - Lilian Carter. 77, says she personally has in mind a top Washington position for Barbara Jordan, the keynote speaker who dazzled the opening session of the party's national convention. She would not say what position it was, but "Miss Lillian" Jimmy Carter's mother recalled that her son has said he wants a woman on the Supreme Court. She quoted Jimmy as saying Miss Jordan is "one of the most remarkable women in the country ." Miss Jordan impressed Carter's mother as a keynoter more than did Sen. John Glenn.

Goldstein, the United States Attorney of New Jersey and six of his associates, charging them wrth discrimination in not promoting her. The assistant attorney, Carolyn E. Arch of Summit, also charged in a 24 - page brief filed yesterday in Federal District Court that Attorney General Edward H. Levi had failed to enforce Federal laws that would prohibit "discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin." Miss Arch has refused to discuss the matter, but Mr. Goldstein said in an interview that he would file for a dismissal of the charges in a few days. "The allegations are false," he said. move af United Nations By KATHLEEN TELTSCH UNITED NATIONS, N Y. The Security Council tonight ended four The Cincinnati team suggested that the educational and financial attainments of blacks who participated may have been exaggerated by researchers of that decade to stress the need for social reform. "The creation of a mythology not only made the rioters appear to be something they were not, but hindered our understanding of the diversity among American blacks in the protest of social conditions," Miller said. The late Illinois Gov. Otto Kerner headed the Kerner Commission on Civil Disorders for the federal government. Miller's team concluded that the "new urban black" is a "militant, nonviolent protester w ho has emerged from among the upper ranks of middle - aged segments of the black community." raps U.S. for rights the platform's civil and political rights, declared that the nation has slipped from the declaration of equality contained in the preamble to the Constitution. "America seems to have retreated even from its prophecy of human rights and equality of opportunity," she said. "When millions of Americans turned to their government for active help, they were treated to benign neglect." She said that the party's platform reaffirms its "historic commitment to the principles of an American society founded on the basis of the equality of man and women before their community" the dream of her late husband.

Indeed, she is one of the highest paid assistants in this office, earning in excess of $30,000 a year." Miss Arch has been as assistant United States attorney in the Newark office for 10 years. She charged that although she was more experienced and handled a larger caseload than other assistant United States attorneys, she had been passed over three times since September 1973 for promotions. She said the positions had been filled "with white males who have far less legal experience." Miss Arch said her lawyers questioned the office's administrative staff about her standing last May and days of inconclusive debate on Israel's rescue of hijacked hostages in Uganda without condemning the Israeli raid or approving a rival resolution against hijacking and terrorism. African members of the Security Council, faced with certain defeat, w ithdrew a resolution that would have condemned as a "flagrant violation" of Uganda's sovereignty the July 3 raid by Israeli forces to rescue the hostages held by pro - Palestinian hijackers at the Entebbe airport. The proposed resolution jointly submitted by Libya, Tanzania and Benin could have mustered only eight votes, one short of the number needed for approval, and even if it had received the nine needed votes was certain to be vetoed by the United States. In withdrawing their resolution, the supporters of Uganda announced that they would not participate in the vote on the rival resolution submitted by Britain and the United States, thus assuring that that resolution would fail. The British - American resolution which would have condemned the hijacking of airliners and called on all governments to "prevent and punish all such terrorist acts" received only six votes, three They remember... v v , 'out f'ttii - ' .'v',. .

ARB AR A JORDAN A SENGSTACKE NEWSPAPER TWO SECTIONS 25 cenls were told that although she was "an excellent attorney" and "the only expert in the offfice," their were other considerations that had led them to deny her promotions and merit raises. Among these other considerations, Miss Arch maintained, were that she failed to "associate with" her associates, "does not attend parties," "does not move her cases" and "does not assist" other attorneys. Miss Arch has charged that these accusations are neither "job related nor true." She charged that in October 1974 the United States Attorney's office had refused to investigate a suspected perjury by a major New Jersey corporation that she had been pursuing. She said the office had insisted that she drop the case. short of the number necessary for approval. Besides Britain and the United States, France, Italy, Sweden and Japan supported the resolution, Rumania and Panama abstained Those not taking part in the vote were China, Guyana, Libya, Pakistan, Tanzania, Benin (formerly known as Dahomey) and the Soviet Union. Following the vote, the council adjourned. Israel promptly said that it regarded the outcome of the Security Council debate as vindication of its commando raid on Entebbe because the Council, which had been called into session by the African nations to condemn Israel, had not approved a resolution to that effect. The Council session, which began last Friday, was requested jointly by 47 members of the Organization of African Unity. In the four days of often stormy debate, Israel contended that the rescue operation at the Entebbe airport was justified as the only means of rescuing the more than 100 Israeli hostages remaining there in the hands of the terrorists who had earlier released 143 non - Israeli passengers aboard the airliner.
