points to the many nuisance
statutes as a means of
eradicating the hate-
mongers. He bypasses the
controversial First
Amendment - Freedom of
Speech issue by comparing
the Nazis to an obscene
telephone call.
There are many who still
ask, in the name of "free-
dom," whether the Nazis
have rights. It is a far more
appropriate question for
Detroit's vilified Black and
Jewish communities, for
Skokie's 7,000 survivors of
the Holocaust, to ask,
"Don't the victims have
rights?"

WTVS-Ch. 56 issued the
following public apology for
the "misunderstanding
which resulted from par-
ticipation of members of the
National Socialist Move-
ment on the Jan. 12, 1978
edition of 'Detroit Black
News' ":
The management and
board of directors of the sta-
tion assure the community
that there was no duplicity
intended and we regret any-
thing that might have given
that impression.
"The station erred in
neglecting to adequately
communicate with con-
cerned members of the
community. This over-
sight gave rise to the
charge of deception
leveled at the station. The
board of directors and
management of Ch. 56 as-
sure the community that
no deception was in-
tended and we apologize
for the breach in com-
munication.

board of directors of the sta-
tion reaffirm their com-
mitment to ongoing com-
munication with all seg-
ments of the community
and seek to re-examine
their own mechanism to as-
sure that the process works
and even improves."
The statement went on to
say that station manager
James Christianson shared
the views of many others in
finding the statements of
the Nazis on the program to
be "offensive and contemp-
tible."
The station presented its
statement to representa-
tives of Jewish organiza-
tions. The officers of the
Jewish Community Coun-
cil, the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith and
the Department of Michi-
gan - Jewish War Veterans
issued the following re-
sponse:
"We find the statement
to be acceptable as an
acknowledgement of the
offense to Jewish sen-
sitivity which the prog-
ram created and we be-
lieve the statement to be
forward-looking in its
approach to relation-
ships not only with the
Jewish community but
with all segments of the
general community.
"We hope that the friction
which this incident caused
between the Jewish com-
munity and Ch. 56 can now
come to an end and that the
entire Jewish community
will continue to give its
generous support to public
television as it has in the
past. To this end, we specifi-
cally urge everyone includ-
ing members of the Jewish
community to continue
their memberships in Ch.
56 and to continue their
support of the forthcoming
auction."

You'll never guess
where Lufthansa
German Airlines
flies to.

It's against the law for a
girl to telephone a man ask-
ing him for a date in
Dyersburg, Tennessee. •

Germany you say? Naturally. But
guess again. And again. About 100
times. Because that's how many
different places you can reach all
around the world on Lufthansa. 72
countries. On six continents. Just
about anywhere people want to go!
From Australia to Zaire. And
wherever Lufthansa flies, you have
our famous service and efficiency
going for you.

And most certainly, we can fly you
to Tel Aviv. And we serve delicious
kosher meals on your way to Israel
or wherever you go. But please be
sure to tell us in advance.
