PRESIDENT-elect Reagan's advisers want him to stop federal grants to cities with rent-control laws.

Reagan's task force on the cities contends that rent control is one of the main causes of urban economic problems and should be abolished. 

New York, which gets hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants, has had rent control since World War II.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE NAACP ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING AND NAACP BOARD OF DIRECTORS

I know it is customary at the annual meetings of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for the Executive Director to recount, with great fourish and intermittent anguish, the achievements and failures of the past year. I will not refrain from following this deliberate pattern of reporting because it is along this rough and winding road that we must continue to reach the end of our journey.

We have walked down dangerous roads and highways, together.

We have faced racial hostility of vicious and monumental proportions and strength throughout American history: whether it was in the form of a black church set-a-fire; or a black family's home bombed out or a Ku Klux Klan cross burning a message of hatred across the land. We have faced down this senseless, cruel, ugly, brutal, shameless and raging violence at times we did not even have legal protection against it, and at times law enforcement authorities were themselves conspirators and accessories to crimes perpetrated against black people.

We faced down the dogs. We faced the bullets. We faced down the billy-clubs, and the ax-handles. We turned aside the racial epithets and used them to measure the strides we had to achieve in order to gain a chance for equal
