But, he emphasized, his career came
first, and thus he could not turn down
the city manager's job in Cincinnati.
His new salary in Cincinnati had not
been finally negotiated, he said, but the
city had offered him "in excess of
$60,000." His present salary is $47,000
CINCINNATI COUNCIL Member
and Vice-Mayor David Mann explained
yesterday that the city manager's.
position in Cincinnati was one of
"enormous prerogatives and a high
level of visibility."
He said the city manager controlled
the flow of information to city council
and the choice of alternatives among
which council made its decisions.
Mann said the Cincinnati city council
interviewed five candidates for the job
Thursday from all over the country and
one from Cincinnati.
HE SAID MURRAY was "very direct

Mann said Murray's - biggest
challenge would be soothing relations
between the Cincinnati police force and
the city's black community.
Tension between blacks and police in
Cincinnati came to a head on May 8,
when a black man and a white police of-
ficer were both slain in separate in-
cidents in one day.
THE SLAYINGS brought the number
of police officers killed in 1979 to three
and also marked the third time a black
suspect had been shot to death by
The incidents aggravated an already
heated situation, as police had been
working without a contract since
January. Police demonstrated for
heavier armaments on May 9, walking
off the job for a day.
"I don't think they hired a black per-
son because a black person could han-
dle it better," Murray said. Murray
said' the Council asked him what he
could do to reduce racial tension and he
replied, "I don't know."
"THE REALITY is that we collec-
tively ... probably ran him (Murray)
through a tougher process than would
otherwise have been the case," Coun-
cilmember Mann said. "In the long run
his color won't mean a damn thing one
way or the other," he added.
Dewey Fuller, executive director of
the Cincinnati chapter of the National
Urban League, said yesterday he was
"very pleased" that Murray had been
Fuller, however, was wary of giving
his unconditional support to Murray.
He said that Murray's appointment

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
I think the first recorded words of Christ found in the Bible.
are In Luke 2:42-52: "HOW IS IT THAT YE SOUGHT ME?
WIST YE NOT THAT I MUST BE ABOUT MY FATHER'S
BUSINESS?" And the first recorded words of Christafter His
baptism by John: "MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD
ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT
OF THE MOUTH OF GOD!" Matthew and Luke 4:4.
GOD'S BUSINESS!GOD'S WORDS!Is thereanythingthat
should claim our attention more? The soul created in the
image of God Almighty, and which, after a short span of life
in the flesh will be called forth from the dust tolive eternally
in the Spirit World!
Onetime when the children of Israel were in the wilderness
as they journeyed from Egypt to The Promised Land they ran
out of water. They became riotous and rebellious. God told
Moses to go out before the people and strike a rock with his
rod, and water would pour forth from it. And It did. Atla later
period under similar circumstances God told Moses to
"Speak" to the rock - not Strike with his rod as in the first
Instance. Moses was angrywith the people fortheirrebellion
and unbelief, and instead of speaking to the rock as God
ordered he struck It with his rod In his anger. God honored
Moses before the people, even In his disobedience, and
water poured forth from the rock. However, God told Moses
on account of this disobedience he would not be permitted
to go across Jordan Into the Promised Land.
Later as they drew near to the Promised Land, and God
began to give them great military victories, Moses said:
"AND I BESOUGHT THE LORD AT THAT TIME, SAYING, O
LORD GOD, THOU HAST BEGUN TO SHOW THY
SERVANT THY GREATNESS, AND THY MIGHTY HAND:
FOR WHAT GOD IS THERE IN HEAVEN OR IN EARTH,
THAT CAN DO ACCORDING TO THY WORKS, AND AC-
CORDING TO THY MIGHT? I PRAY THEE, LET ME GO
OVER, AND SEE THE GOOD LAND THAT IS BEYOND
JORDAN. --- BUT THE LORD WAS ANGRY WITH ME
FOR YOUR SAKES, AND WOULD NOT HEAR ME: AND
THE LORD SAID UNTO ME, 'LET IT SUFFICE THEE:
SPEAK NO MORE TO ME OF THIS MATTER!'"
When Mrs. Potiphar tempted Joseph, he said: "HOW
THEN CAN I DO THIS GREAT WICKEDNESS, AND SIN
AGAINST GOD?" Genesis 39:9.
The Apostle Paul asked God three times to "lake away the
thorn in his flesh." God refused, but told him "My grace is
sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in
"It is a fearful, a terrible thing to disregardlthe command of
God! Read the third chapter of Genesis, and take heed. What
God says, and does, is best, though all the world is of a con-
trary opinion and against It.
