Communications Advances Told AUSTIN (AP) - The general director of Novedades of Mexico City told a meeting of mass media executives of Mexico and the United States Sunday that newsmen are "participating in a daily revolution." "The revolution in the communications media and the technological explosion give us marvelous instruments for achieving the goal of informing and guiding our audiences accurately and rapidly," said Romulo O'FarrillJr,, who also is vice president of Novedades. More than 100 leaders of daily newspapers, radio and television Ritchie Seating Expected Tonight EAGLE PASS-School trustee-elect Charles Ritchie who has been battling opposition to his being seated on the Eagle Pass School Board since his election April 3, will probably be seated during tonight's trustee meeting. Ritchie was prevented from taking his seat on the board in a meeting earlier this month when the board majority was still comprised of out going members who objected to what they termed his "deliberate attempt to evade the state nepotism law." They were referring to his resignation from the board last year in order that his nephew be hired as a migrant teacher, and then running for re-election to his own vacancy. A written opinion from board attorney David Hume stated that the trustees would be liable under the law if they .seated Ritchie without first discharging his nephew. So far, his nepnew has not been fired and he has not been seated. . Tonight's meeting will take on a completely different complexion. There is now a new majority in control of the board, all of whom are considered to favor seating Ritchie, including newly elected board president John Lettinuch. Ritchie was swept into office with a landslide majority over four other candidates earlier this month. There is considerable speculation as to what action the board will take tonight with regards to Michael Ritchie, his nephew. Lawyer Hume and trustee Enrique Jimenez are expected to recommend that he be discharged in order to clear the board of any possible liability under the nepotism law. The new majority; however, is known to favor keeping both Ritchies, Charlie and Michael, in their positions. stations, public relations companies and government information offices listened as panelists discussed the latest methods of communication and the best means of adopting new technology. Sunday's closing session at the University of Texas included as speakers O'Farrill, Julio Scherer Garcia, director of Excelsior oi Mexico City; and Dr. MiguelAleman Jr., news director for the television group, Telesistema Mexicana. O'FanvT said, "In the zeal of achieving this assignment (guiding and informing), we must insure that our pages and radio and television waves contain a combination of education and culture, and what is more important, a moral orientation of a higher level as a contribution to a better understanding amongallthe people of our planet and for the advancement of all the moral and spiritual values oi the individual." At Saturday's session, Fausto Zapata, undersecretary of information for the Mexican president, and Herbert Klein. White House communications director, spoke. On the subject of the technical revolution, Dr. Miguel Aleman Jr. said: "Communication has integrated us Mexicans, it has solidified our basic roots with the present within which we live and with the goals of advancement that we have jointly outlined."
