Board Meeting, [19] June 20, 1977, Citizens' Comments: Unidentified male speaker regarding Jack Mabley column in the Chicago Tribune

Abstract

President Albert J. Smith responds to an unidentified male speaker regarding asking members of the press to limit their coverage of the forthcoming neo-Nazi rally in Skokie by saying that reporters feel that they are obliged to report the news and thus cannot be prevented from covering the event. An unidentified Trustee mentions Jack Mabley's column in the Chicago Tribune ("Skokie's best tack: ignore the Nazis," by Jack Mabley, Chicago Tribune, June 7, 1977, p. 4), which also states that the media shouldn't publicize the march. The initial speaker replies, reinforcing his previous position. Smith says that Village officials will continue to seek cooperation from members of the press.
