Just a year ago Farr Horizons was just an idea. Today it is undoubtedly one of the most popular features ever presented by any Chicago community newspaper. 2,600 Contributors To Date In the 11 months which have, passed since the first column blossomed into print January 10, 1951, more thin 2,000 individual contributions have been received. Farr Horizons is no longer a dream--it is an established reality. The column is giving an opportunity to local residents, who enjoy writing verse or quips, to see their brain children in print. A bit of verse or prose hidden away in a desk drawer brings no one happiness. Across the far horizons of this great land of ours, from one end of tlie country to another, new contributors are constantly sending in material for the column and, incidentally, becoming regular readers of the South End Reporter. These letters coming in week after week have been a revelation and inspiration. Fine material is received from shut-ins, from people who are confined to their homes by illness, from young and old. Many have written (hat Farr Horizons has given them a new slant on life, an incentive 1 for living. Many of those whose contributions appear in Farr Horizons have had material published in the Saturday Evening Post, Magazine Digest, Catholic Digest, and other nationally known publications. At the dinner party January 12 at the Nantucket these names will come to life. The young, the in-betweens, and the young in heart will meet and learn what the other fellow looks like. This birthday dinner is open to all whose contributions have been printed in the column. Each contributor may bring one guest. Dinner i reservations are $3.25 per person.

Declared the representative of the Safety Council, "We recently requested, through Alderman DuBois. the placing of "No Parking At Any Time" signs on the posts under Illinois Central viaducts here. This request was prompted by a series of serious accidents, including several fatalities, at the Illinois Central railroad viaduct at lllth street. "Similar signs were stenciled at aJ) viaducts south of 103rd street, including the south side of 115th street, the purpose being to prevent persons from hurrying from the trains to run across the street in the face of very heavy and dangerous east and west bound trafr lie. "These signs are being obeyed at all the viaducts except at 115th street where east and west traffic is exceptionally heavy, especially between 4 and 6 p.m. Space has been provided on the north side of 115th street (underlie viaduct) for brief 'pick-up' parkin? but some pe»ons art nOU parking on the South side' of'the iSnftt under the viaduct and 'ducking' in and out of the heavy traffic. Dancer U Great "Sooner or later someone is going to be seriously hurt or killed. That is just what we are trying to pi-event. Why some people persist in this dangerous parking of their cars under the viaducts is hard to understand. These signs were installed for their own safety and protection by the City of Chicago under proper authorization. The police clean up the viaduct of violators four or five more cats are parked there as soon as the police car drives away. It is impossible to have the police there constantly. The persons wno have been violating the law by parking under the viaduct can render a real service to the community and perhaps save someone's life by parking their cars elsewhere." The Safety Council representative also pointed out that "practically every evening, after the day policeman stationed at lllth and Michigan goes off duty, cars are found parked on the south side of lllth street just below Michigan avenue, where the space has been reserved for unloading and loading buses. Signs plainly indicate that no parking is permitted at this point, yet they are openly violated as a result the long Suburban buses are often obligated to load and unload passengers in the middle of lllth street, with heavy traffic Koing in both directions. This trouble- is not experienced on the north side of lllth street, but (Continued on Page 9) Turner Classes Are To Present Annual Exhibit Traditional Program Is Scheduled For Next Sunday The annual Christmas gymnastic exhibition given by the Eiche Turners will be held this year on Sunday afternon and evening, December 16. at Turner hall, 165 East 115th.

"Until then Expressway traffic will cross the tracks at grade where temporary flasher signals have been installed," lie explained.
