(Ark.) Courier News - Friday, June 9, 1987 — Pig* Thnt Ex-Paper Boy Is Now Top A former Blylheville resident and former Courier News carrier is being labeled one of Illinois' most able legislators. He is State Senator Cecil Partee, a Democrat of Chicago. Parlce is a former. member of the lower house in Illinois and for many years served as a deputy in the office of the Cook County prosecutor. He is the son of Bessie Partee Ivy, former Blytheville teacher who now Jives in St.. Louis. He was the subject of a recent story in the Illinois State Register, which on May 24 said (in part): At' a time when some Negro leaders are. being sharply criticized for racist tactics, a Negro political leader in Illinois is gaining recognition as one of the Prairie State's best legislators. That legislator is State Sen. Cecil Parlee, Democrat of Chicago. Partee is handling Democratic sponsored fair housing bills, and the coolness and logic lie displays in pursuing his legislation is applauded by Republican as well as. Democratic senators. . . Probably it's unfair to classify legislators into groups. But the fact of the matter is, Negro legislators are classified. It's not uncommon to hear politicians say, "Partee is the best Negro legislator in the General Assembly." But persons who watch the legislative process closely say Partee has few peers in the 'legislature, period. Partee is no hell-raiser. He is kind, hard working and intelligent. , Prior to moving over to-the Senate this year, Partee served 10 years in the Illi- ly Abigail Van Burea A 10-Point Guide For Teen Girls DEAR ABBY: Several years ago, when I was a teenager, I cut out your column on how teen-agers should act in order to stay out of harm's way with so many strange and sick people running around loose.

By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer Former Gov. Orval Faubus traveled across the county line into Washington County recently for a Democratic Party function. While there, he was asked a question about a subject which kept him and his hometown of Huntsville in the news during his last term as governor. The subject was his.nsw home —the one the Republicans said would cost upward to $250,000 and which Faubus claimed would be n« more than $100,000. Quite an issue was made about the house, which has 7,000 square feet and contains $5,000 worth *f glass. It was more common than not that news stories contained the Republican question of how it was that Faubus was building such a showplace on the mere salary ef $10,000 a year as governor. For many weeks, Faubus, the Republicans and the then campaigning Wlnthrop Rockefeller argued about the size and cost Finally, « news reporter armed with a tape measure ascertained the house was 257 feet long. Faubus confirmed the measurement and at the time said he heped to hold the cost under $70,000. He denied GOP estimates. Later he said the cost would go over his first figure but certainly not over $100,000. Nevertheless, while Faubus was in Fayetteville for the Democratic event, Allan Gilbert Jr. of the Northwest Arkansas Times asked him when he expected to get into his new borne. "Haven't you heard?" Faubus replied facetiously. "We had to stop work on the place. I ran out »f money." However, when Gilbert pressed him for a real answer, Faubus said "about July I." DIVIDED CLAY FAMILY FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) Of the five grandsons of Henry Clay, a native of Kentucky three were Confederate and two Unionist.

IP YOU KNOW OF ANY PORNOGRAPHIC PI C- TUHES OR LITERATURE BEING PASSED AROUND NOTIFY YOUR PARENTS IMMEDIATELY. Obscene reading matter is a favorite habit of degenerates. If the authorities can run down (he source and trace the material, (hey may be able to rid the community of danger before it starts. DON'T GO OUT ON "BLIND DATES" UNLESS ANOTH- ER COUPLE IS AIvONG AND EVEN THEN BE CAUTIOUS. H someone phones and says he's a friend of Jack Jones, tell him you'd be glad to have Jack Jones introduce him. 4. STAY OUT OF LOV- EHS' LANES. It's natural to want to be alone with your date, but experience shows that "Lovers' Lanes" are favorite re- haunts of sex criminals. 5. DON'T WANDER AWAY FROM THE CROWD AT PICNICS AND OUTINGS. STAY WITHIN CALLING DISTANCE. Sex criminals arc easily •(traded to any group of young people, and given an opportunity (hey can strike with frightening speed. 6. DON'T ASK ^OR TROUBLE - DRESS SENSIBLY. Provocative clothing may attract the attention of a potenial sex criminal. 7. BE CIVIL TO STRANG-. .ERS WHO ASK DIRECTIONS, BUT NEVER GO PART WAY WITH THEM. The "dirccions" trick is a favorite among sex criminals. They count on the natural helpfulness of young people. 8. BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT ACCEPTING WORK FROM A STRAN- GER. This is another insidious dodge. Always make sure that the person is a respectable business man. 9. DON'T GO ABOUT THE HOUSE HALF • DRESSED.
