"Like an explosion," one United Presbyterian official termed it. An Episcopal Church officer said. "I'm personally concerned at the unhappy way it happened, but sometimes a new style requires new faces to symbolize it." Most of the dismissals, involving five of tke council's long-time top executives, were ordered by Dr. Claire Randall, tke Council's new- general secretary, and the first woman to become its chief administrator. The indicated objective was to centralize direction in her office. As she explained, it was to reorient "the core administrative staffing to direct the flow of work around the general secretary's office" and "facilitate deployment" by her office. The council is a cooperative organization of 32 Protestant and Orthodox denominations, with membership totaling 42 million. All five of the executives ordered dropped as of the end of this year are white, male and over 60, most of them with more than 20 years council experience. They include the council's second-in-command or deputy general secretary, the Rev. Dr. David R. Hunter, 63, and two associate general secretaries, M. Leroy Brininger, 61, the council's chief financial officer, and the Rev. Dr. J. Allan Ranck, 61, head of research and planning. Also dismissed were the Rev. Donald F. Landwer, 62, an assistant general secretary in charge of fund-raising among denominations, and Fletcher Coates, 61. executive director of the information department. "It was * cwaplete sk»ck to all «f »$," Dr. Haiter said. "But 1 4«n't fault her. It makes sense according to what she wants t« do. Whether she can pttU it off is CMjectnr- al. If I'm critical, it's only of the way she went about it." In addition James MacCracken, for nine years executive director of the council's relief arm. Church World Service, was dismissed by the head of the council's overseas ministries division, the Rev. Dr. Eugene Stockwell. He attributed the action to a clash in policy views, with McCracken holding that the agency's main purpose was to feed, clothe and shelter needy people, and Stockwell maintaining it should put more emphasis on social changes to eliminate root causes of poverty. * * * DR. HUNTER said the other five dismissals were related to an over-all plan for Mrs. Randall to take a "much more active role in program coordination" with all of it going over her desk. Mrs. Randall, 54, a Methodist who succeeded Dr. Edwin Espy as the Council's chief executive at the start of the year, said the personnel changes were to carry out a management approach authorized by the Council representative governing assembly in December, 1972. The changes had the backing of the Council's executive committee. ; 4 DAYS ONLY MAGIC CHEF AT PRE-INFLATION PRICES NO FROST 15'REFRIGERATOR FREEZER Magic Chef 15CU.FT.
