Harris defends the Model Cities
Program, saying that despite
"pressures" he has received, it
would be inappropriate for him to'
interfere in the program.
"The Model Cities project and
its controlling board is a neighbor-
hood function, not for City Hall
to put its nose in," Harris says.
"If the neighborhoods contain-
ed in the program area are dis-
satisfied with the performance
of board members ,they can vote
them out this summer," Harris
continues.

Another political controversy in
the area of black community re-
lationships surfaced with the pass-
ing of the Human Rights Ordin-
ance early last year. The new pro-
gram was designed to extend the
city's anti-discrimination laws on
housing to include employment,
public accommodations and j o b
training.
The city's Human Rights Com-
mission, assigned the task of mon-
itoring the newly structured Hu-
man Relations Department, re-
cently selected the moderate Jam-
es Slaughter as department head
and retained the department's
former acting director, R o b e r t
Hunter, as the assistant director.
Following the appointments, the
department's troubles began.
The department had failed by
this time to bring the city's
largest employer, the University,
under its jurisdiction, and Slaugh-
ter and Hunter frequently clash-

SGC will be next year, operating

four conservatives among its 11

that with a few "swing" votes, a
lot of unpredictable things could

Following a series of confronta-
tions, the controversy between the
two peaked last month, with the
firing of Hunter for allegedly "no
longer performing the duties of his
position in an efficient and re-
sponsible manner."
Hunter immediately charged that
the firing was politically motivat-
ed, saying that Mayor Robert
Harris "wants city employes who
operate departments in meaning-
less ways and who cause no em-
barrassment to his political ambi-
tions." He then filed suit for re-
instatement.
Enraged by the firing, the black'
community reacted with a series of
denunciations.

St. Vincent de Paul was a Christ-like priest, a warm-hearted man
with unbounded love for his fellow man, especially the poor, the
sick, the oppressed and the neglected. His life was spent ministering
to their needs. He preached to them, taught them, fed them and
even begged for them. Like Christ, he came not to be served but
to serve.
Today the Vincentians, the sons of St. Vincent, carry on his work.
As a Vincentian, you can ease the misery of the poor and the suf-
fering of the sick. They counsel the troubled and the oppressed.
They teach the young and console the old and enlighten men of all
ages. They try to meet the needs of the Church wherever they exist.
The Vincentians serve.

Vincentian Priests and Brothers live by St. Vincent's motto:
