Task Force for Racial Justice Seeks Means for Eliminating Injustice The Racial Justice Task Force, a committee of individuals drawn together by their concern over the racial climate that may exist if and when a black community is established here, held its third meeting on Saturday at Christ Lutheran Church. Factors which have operated to bring the Task Force into being have included the findings made public in the Kerncr Report, which revealed conscious and unconscious forms of racism running through the fabric of American society; selective .and sometimes predominantly negative coverage of riots by the news media which may have served to heighten fears of a black influx in this area, and the fact that expanding job opportunities WIN AT BRIDGE Deception Is Fine, If 12 EAST KJ4 V 10862 98 Q1093 NORTH 4Q62 VQ7 Q 10432 J74 WEST A V953 J765 AK865 SOUTH (D) 4 1098753 VAKJ4 4 AK 2 East-West vulnerablt Wett North East South 1 Pass 2 4 Pass 44 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead 4 K By OSWALD & JAMKS JACOBY Oswald: "There is nothing wrong villi deceptive play provided the deception works."

Michael Kos-tow, commanding officer of Troop L, Reading, disclosed Saturday. lie said the consolidation would curtail services for Schuylkill county but would mean an increase in state police protection. State police Commissioner James D. Barger said the closing of the Schuylkill Haven detail would result in an estimated savings of $16,000 per year in building operational expenses. "More importantly, it will allow us to make better use of our manpower and actually increase our services to the people of the area," he said. Col. Barger also noted that consolidation would mean more men available for patrol: close coordination of special duty functions, such as narcotics and other special study investigations; consolidation or record maintenance, and would free personnel from filing responsibilities. It would also increase flexibility in assigning more patrol vehicles and would increase ability to respond to work load changes. Barger said the combined details will be located near the intersection or 181 and Route 61. in a building leased from John and Rita Leisl of Frackville. The Leisls use the building as a motel and restau rant, but it will be renovated, at their expense, to accommodate the two units. The new headquarters will be located about n block south of the present substation or the Frackville detail, which was formerly the Mahanoy City detail. The Frackville detail is located in 1 81 Last August, it was announced M.ihanov City detail wouui will inevitably draw black families to the area. At the first meeting of the Task Force, chaired by Dr. Lew Mad-docks, Director of Program Development for the White Constituency of the United Church of Christ and held at Christ Church, West Hazleton, in January, some of the questions explored included: What is the state of racial justice in the Hazleton area, what are the reasons for racial injustice and what are the means to eliminate it? . Such topics as housing, employment and education were discussed. One project the Task Force intends to develop involves invitations from area residents to Keystone Job Corps Center students, in pairs, for Sunday dinner. The project is designed to famil iarize area residents with the ed ucational program at the Center as well as normalize relations between the students and the community at large. At the Task Force's second meeting Mrs. Irene Johnson, a reading supervisor in the Philadelphia school system, made a presentation on materials used in the study of Black history. The Task Force welcomes anyone interested in furthering its objectives to attend the next meeting, to be held at the Job Corps Center, Drums, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. the liil. Furthermore, the play worked.

Mrs. Michele Riffon "We all suffered enough because of the Vietnam war and I think there will be more suffering once many of the servicemen are dis charged and find out that there just aren't enough jobs for them. I probably will be out of work, too, because the government won't need such a large supply of blasting caps. Then, I guess I'll, stay home and start raising children. I feel, however, a recession will be a lot better than having our young men being killed in a senseless war. Mrs. Ann Rinehimer, 2000 E.

In Tamaqua JolmFulmer Candidate For Mayor John F. Fulmer of Tamaqua an nounced he will seek the Republic an nomination for mayor in the May primary election. Fulmer, who resides at 331 Wil ling St., made his announcement four days after Mayor Harry W Kleckner said he would not seek re-election. A native of Tamaqua, Fulmer 52, attended Tamaqua High School and was previously employed in the Schuylkill County Recorder of Deeds office and by the State De partincnt of Labor and Industry as an inspector tor .nlnracosiucosls and accidents. He is presently employed by the New Jersey Zinc Co. at its Fried-ensville mine. He is married to the former Adele Mirynosky. They have two children, Kathleen, a nurse at Reading Hospital, and Thomas, at home. In making the announcement, Fulmer said he feels as if "he knows the people of Tamaqua and their needs" and that tiis "background as an insoetor and in the County Courthouse" will help him in handling the mayor's office. He is the forst person to make a formal announcement of candidacy since Kleckner revealed ho was going to step down. Klerkner. 72, has served seven terms since he was appointed to fill Hn unexpired term in 1!l.1. He was re ejected for two additional terms, hut in 1953 declined to seek re election.

The South Vietnamese were with us and then against us in many situations. You didn't know which way to turn. They capitalized on our aid and made a mockery of our contributions by Black Market methods. They are only interested in their selfish ways of life. I think Pres ident Nixon was pressured into ending it. There was too much opposition on the Home Front to our continued involvement in the war. I'm glad it's over." The Orthodox Church in America has a new bishop. He is Rt. Rev. Herman, Bishop of Wilkes-Barre, and vicar bishop to his eminence, Most Rev. Kip-rian, Archbishop of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania in whose diocese the City of Wilkes-Barre lies.

Sylvester, Archbishop of Montreal and Canada; Most Rev. Valerian, Archbishop of Detroit and Michigan; Rt. Rev. Theodosius, Bishop of Pittsburgh and West Virginia, and Rt. Rev. Dmitri, Bishop of Hartford, Conn., and New England. Bishop Herman is the former Joseph Swaiko, son of Basil and Helen Herich Swaiko of Bradford.

L.Hili.!'.: M'- 'X, . Paul's Church, Uniondale. Orthodox bishops are consecrated during the service of the Holy Eucharist (the "Divine Liturgy"), since it is within the context of the Eucharist that the role of the bishop is most perfectly expressed. It is the task of the bishop to preserve and safeguard the unity of the Church that very unity which is embodied in the Holy Eucharist. It is in the Eucharist that the unity of all believers in Christ is actualized. The bishop is the chief preacher of the Word and the chief minister of the sacrament, and both of these functions are brought together in the Eucharistic Liturgy the Church's central act of worship.

Participating also were Protodeacon Nicholas Polansky, Protodeacon Vladimir Kiryk, Protodeacon Basil Hubiak, Deacon Peter Tutko, Deacon Valerian Dzury, Deacon Michael Sekela and Deacon Joseph Chupeck of Simpson, who was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Herman during the Divine Liturgy.

The solemnltes began Friday night with the formal nomination of the bishop-elect and hia formal acceptance, followed by Solemn Vespers and Matins in honor of the Venerable Herman of Alaska, the new bishop's patron saint. A reception for the clergy followed in the cathedral hall. Saturday morning's services began at 9 with solemn procession to the cathedral, followed by the bishop-elect's "Profession of Faith" and the Divine Liturgy. Immediately follow ing the Trisagion (a Trinitarian hymn of praise, the singing of which precedes the reading of the epistle and gospel), the bishop-elect was presented to his conse-crators. The Book of the Holy Gospels was placed, writing downward, upon the head of the bishop-elect, the Metropolitan intoning, "The grace divine, which alwayi healeth that which is infirm, and completeth that which is wanting, through the laying-on of hands elevateth thee, the most God-loving Archimandrite Herman, duly elected, to be the bishop of the God-blessed city of Wilkes-Barre." At that moment, Rt. Rev. Herman became, by tne g.ace of God, Bishop of Wilkes-Barre. A dinner honoring the newly consecrated Bishop Herman was held yesterday afternoon at Tread-way Inn at which time the bishop received gifts and tokens of best wishes from the clergy and laity. Approximately 1,000 persons attended the affair. Bishop Herman will celebrate his first Hierarehial (Pontifical) Divine Liturgy this morning at Holy Resurrection Russian Orthodox Cathedral. His residence will remain at St. Tikhon'a Seminary. He will celebrate a Hierarehial Divine Liturgy at least once a month at the Wilkes-Barre church. .iLV : Joe Mitchell "We have been working on government contracts for the military and I suppose many of us will be laid off once we pull our troops out of Southeast Asia. Then unemployment will rise sharply. I wish the government would lower the retirement age to CO so more older workers could go on pension and this would also allow more younger people to find employment."

Deadline Set For Fire Companies To Seek Flood Damage Repair Grants Volunteer fire companies who had flood damages caused by the storm Agnes last summer have until Feb. 28 to file applications to obtain grants to repair damages it was announced by the Schuylkill County Commissioners. They may file their applications with James Keenan, county project coordinator at the courthouse. A group of citizens, mostly from the Shenandoah - Mahanoy City area, presented a petition to the county commissioners bearing more than 18,000 signers opiwsing dumping of any garbage in the county stripping holes from out of the county. They asked the lot but that the petitioners must observe certain procedures under the election law. The commissioners announced they would study the matter prior to making any recommendation.

I think he was sincere in wanting peace, unfortunately, it did not come in his time. Perhaps, families can get back to normal living and that they won't have to be concerned about their sons going into the military service. The war disrupted so many homes. I hope and pray that it is a lasting Peace." !.gr I1 1 10 n Joe Sabol "There will be a lot of gladness . . . and a lot of sadness, too, as POWs come home and others were killed in action and will never return. I feel that the end of the war will convince Russia, China and the North Vietnamese that Americans want peace and maybe we'll turn our efforts to establishing trade and better relations with all nations. If we create better communications with all countries another war might not be triggered by a simple disagreement."

CALL TOLL-FREE (800-631-5888) Some Areas Dial 1-800-631-5888 Don't do anything until you learn about the luxurious new swimming pool that needs no excavation . . . won't increase taxes . . . requires almost no upkeep . . . cost surprisingly little. Normal upkeep expenses are all but eliminated by the wide use of vinyl and fiberglass. Almost nothing affects these two modern marvels, including sun, rain, heat, cold, snow. That why almost every exposed surface on this pool is protected either with vinyl or fiberglass.. What about water costs? More good news. This is a pool you fill only once! Without you doing a thing, its "lazy man" filtration system automatically keeps the water cleaner and clearer than the tap water you drink. A deck surrounds the entire pool, providing plenty of space for plenty of swimmers to walk around the pool or sit dangling their feet in the water. At one end the deck extends into a huge sun deck where you can entertain a whole crowd. For sure looting, non-skid vinyl covers every inch ol the deck. All around the deck there's a fence ot solid fiberglass. Nobody can see in. This helps shut out the world and make your pool a real retreat truly a private playground. As for strength the pool features a steel superstructure like that of a suspension bridge. Here's one pool with lock-solid construction, it's so strong it's portable!-If you ever move it can go with you.. Yes, here's a lifetime pool, and you can bet it will change your lite. It will give you a wonderful new place to entertain your friends., get your exercise.. .keep In trim. take a refreshing dip alter a hot day'a work...have exciting "water-edge'" meals ...enjoy money saving vacations at home... do more with your lamiiy than you've ever done before.
