(s) James Gallagher, Secretary Zoning Board of Appeals LEGAL Notice Is hereby given that on October 19, 1970 at 8:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers of the Village Hall, 517 Desplaines Avenue, Forest Park, Illinois the Zoning Board of Appeals will conduct a Public Hearing on a petition for variations in the Zoning Ordinance of the Village of Fc^st Park permitting the erection of a 16-unit building on the following described property: The S. 90' of the W. 50' of Blk. 18 and lot 26 (except the N. 35' of the W. 20' thereof) in the Subd. of said Blk. 18 (except the W. 50' of the S. 125' thereof) all in Joseph K. Dunlop's Subd. of the W 1/2 S/E 1/4 and part of the E 1/3 of E. 1/2 of S/W 1/4 lying S/E of the Center line of Desplalnes Ave., in Section 13, Township 39 North Range 13, East of the Third Principal Meridian in Cook County, Illinois commonly known as the Northeast corner of Lathrop Avenue and Roosevelt Road, Forest Park, Illinois. (s) James Gallagher, Secretary Zoning Board of Appeals New Ambulance For Fire Dept. A 1970 ambulance was recently delivered to the Forest Park Fire Dept. and is now in-service for emergency calls within the village. The new apparatus replaces the 1957 ambulance that was utilized until it had a major break-down several weeks ago. At that time It was determined, by the Village Council, that it would be both costly and impractical to have the old vehicle repaired. The new unit was custom-built by the Miller-Meteor Corp. of Wayne, Indiana on a commercial Cadillac chassis at a cost of $16,000. Jt Is designed to accommodate comfortably, four stretcher patients at one time as compared to a capacity of two by the older unit. One of the outstanding options is a complete and separate air- conditioning system for the front and rear. It is expected that this equipment will provide excellent service to the citizens of Forest Park for a minimum of ten years. Roland S. Roemer, President of M & M Corporation, handing the keys to the ambulance to Fire Chief Del Marousek.

Harrison St., Forest Park Senator Mohr's Suburb Secession SENATOR MOHR RESPONDS TO SUBURB SECESSION CRITICISM State Senator Howard R. Mohr of Forest Park responded today to criticisms by partisan supporters of metropolitan government, of his suburban separation study. His suggestion that Chicago's suburbs might break away from Cook County and form a new county, popularly called "secession", has received considerable and popular attention throughout the Chicago area as a means of preserving local control and of solving many suburban problems. "I completely reject the pessimistic, undocumented assertions of these opponents of local governmental control that suburban separation Is legally impossible," Mohr charged. "This summer I carefully documented, in a published statement, the Constitutional and statutory provisions which would permit such a move. I refer the critics to a careful study of Article X of the 1870 Illinois Constitution, the Illinois Revised Statutes, ch. 34, sec. 101 et seq., and sec. 51 et seq., and court decisions interpreting these laws, such as Rock Island County v. Sage, 88 Illinois 582, handed down in 1878." Mohr continued, "Besides, I'm not sure myself that this would be an ideal solution. But I think it might be. It's at least worth considering. My opponents aren't trying to just shut off discussion and ram through metropolitan government, are they? The decision as to whether or not we're going ahead with the separation idea will require considerable study. We already Informally studied the possibility of it being done. One of my staff assistants, a volunteer, is beginning to form a special independent committee to study this subject formally, objectively and In depth. The President of the Cook County Supervisors' Association, George Glaser, of Riverside, and Niles Township Supervisor John Nimrod, of Skokie, have both recently offered their assistance. My staff assistant is now discussing current research results with them. They will decide shortly how to proceed with the committee study." "We have not yet studied the specific legal consequences of separation in depth," Mohr said. "There would be problems, obviously. But any difficult problems might be worked out by negotiations, or by legislation. The independent committee study will undoubtedly prepare a report detailing expected problems and suggestions for dealing with them. This report would be publicized and studied, of course, before any final decision Is made. We need to know just what we'd be getting into." Senator Mohr concluded: "I agree completely with Professor Hyneman, when he said In 1951 (46 m. Law Review at p. 568) that the requirements for popular approval of county boundary changes — which is what we are proposing --- are so complex that rearrangement is likely to be a rare occurrence. It may be time for one of those rare occurrences. I do know of oje difficulty we might have: the meaning of 'county seat' within Article X, Section 1 of the Constitution, which provides that no new county line may pass within ten miles of the county seat of the county to be divided. The 1925 Illinois Legislature passed a statute, for statutory purposes, which restricts the meaning of. 'county seat' (1925, July 2, Laws 1925, p. 319, sec. 1), and the Illinois Attorney General in 1908 gave an advisory opinion doing the same (1908 Op. A. G. 705). The meaning of 'county seat' in this Constitutional provision is not, of course, bound by these restrictions. The courts have the province and duty (o determine the meaning and true construction of the Constitution. And the courts are not bound by any attempted restrictions on this duty, for it is their Constitutional duty."

Paeth If television worked on the olfactory senses, homes tuned to the Dick Cavett Show last week would have been pervaded by an odor of thick, damp cotton socks when Dick "Payola" Clark made one of his rare guest appearances. Dick, who said he lives In a "semi-straight world," typifies the segment of America that thinks "kinky" Is staying up for the Late Show and hot dogs with raw onions are daring. He is a throwback to the fifties. A breathing anachronism that keeps "American Bandstand" alive by making it the logical step between "Dastardly and Muttley and Their Flying Machines" , and "Mayberry R.F.D.' 1 In the adolescent's process of maturation by television. Clark and his show lullabied while the country dozed through Eisenhower. The other night, the man who brought us Bobby Rydel and Freddy "Boom .Boom" Cannon, displayed his more serious side. Clark said he had spent some time with California's brawling Hell's Angels motorcycle club a band of Huns known best for their freewheeling disrespect for law and a passionate aversion for student demonstrators. He revealed that the Angels, although not in agreement with him on many issues, respected him and what he stood for. In a clumsy attempt with the argot, while his Brylcream melted under the floodlights, he said they let him "do his own thing." Accepting what he said as true, the Angels again displayed poor judgement. Co-existence is not always a wise outlook and the Angels, who, at least to most people, represent booze and broads anarchy, should not have been so free with their companionship. Cyclists, in many cases, are hedonistic thugs regardless of several authors' attempts to place them in some sorl of loose philosoplu'cal framework. Dick Clark, however, is an incarnation of a long line of American virtues whose close adherence leads to isolation from the country's processes. Revolution often springs from the collective lack of management Dick Clark smugly represents. **** FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover evidently borrowed Spiro Agnew's copy of "Roget's Thesaurus" (or college English text) when he prepared the open letter to en liege students published Monday.' (Witness the phrase "prophets of pessimism proclaim.") His letter, a maladroit missive if you please, contained an eight point program to help students recognize "extremists (who)will try to lure you into their activities." Get out the scissors and the air mail stamps mom, because this is the definitive word. I doubt if Weathermen, Panther, or SDK ranks will shrivel when the program gets play on the campuses. Avoiding radicals doesn't eliminate their meat Vietnam, racism, inequity and the abuses of capitalism. ihe Old iftn&t. mart woman l<> drridr if ji mail i> loo old I" In- con-idci-.-d rlif-il)!,., ,, r I'M) i-li{;ililc l» be considered old."
