FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1970, PAGE 14 BIG RED WRITES AGAIN Big Red Soft Tip Pen A great, ungainly pen wrote history 40 years ago. It was BIG RED, the Parker Duofold, and almost .everybody who was anybody had one. And now, BIG RED is back. In all his clumsy-looking, off-red glory. A few things have changed. He now has a soft tip, and refills In a variety of colors and point sizes. But to look at him, BIG RED'S the same classic handful he always was. /»r nn Take }O.UU and go get BIG RED. Give it to somebody who really rates. Yourself, for instance. In styles for both men and women.

I would also like to thank the Forest Park Police Department, the members of the Drug Abuse Committee and other Kiwanians who lent their time and efforts on our behalf. It Is our sincere wish that the program was not only interesting and informative but of help and value to the people of our community. As this was the first of its kind, we are planning a more comprehensive and Involved program in the near future. Sincerely, Jack Conway, Chairman Kiwanis Drug Abuse Program Mr. Fred Oconnor, We would like you to know that we have not forgotten the years of work you contributed to Boys Baseball. We had some wonderful, unforgetable years with you. You saw many Boys come and go, and we believe you loved everyone of them. You missed many meals and many hours of sleep because the "Ball Game" came first. We will never forget Fred and we want you to know now, not when it's too late. Many Thanks Fred & Mary, The Patrick W. Oberg Family Dear Larry: I was gratified to see that my recent letter to Mr. Francis llogan, hearing officer of the Air Pollution Control Bureau of Cook County, appeared in the letters to the editor column on September 23. However, I was somewhat disappointed to see that my letter was not printed in its entirety. I believe my letter, as it appeared in your column, because of the omissions, failed to convey fully the concern that Acme Resin has for the well-being of the residents of our neighborhood. The published version of my letter failed to include my reference to the substantial expenditures that Acme Resin has made during the last several years to improve both the appearance of our plant and the performance of our operation so that we would become a more attractive and considerate neighbor. Many of the residents in our neighborhood have commented favorably on our accomplishments. Please allow me to enumerate some of the improvements that we have made and that did not appear in my letter as originally published. Our new facilities have been constructed so that no shipping or receiving activities take place on Circle Avenue, but rather on the west side of our property. Li order to handle the truck loading and unloading there, it was necessary for us to purchase additional land at considerable expense. We have also completely refaced our original building and have incorporated modern and attractive features in our new construction. I was happy to see that our major improvements such as a new system of duct work to collect exhausts and to scrub them thoroughly with water was mentioned. Let me say then, at this point, that perhaps not all of the undesirable odors that are encountered in our neighborhood come from Acme operations. Incidentally, the pressure vacuum relief valves designed to eliminate undesirable odors from our roof tank vents, and which we referred to in our previous letter were finally received on September 29, and were installed that same day, and are now in operation. Our total expenditures for all of our Improvements, just to prevent odors escaping from our operations, amount to about $25,000 not counting our substantial investment of engineering time and the considerable attention given to the problem by our management. We at Acme Resin have appreciated the cooperation extended to us by the Air Pollution Control Bureau of Cook County, and we wish to assure the board and the public as well that we will continue our constant efforts to comply with pertinent standards of operation. Very truly yours, Walter G. Kirchherr Chief Engineer Dear Editor: I would like tq. comment on the recent article which appeared on the first page of the FOREST PARK REVIEW, dated October 7, 1970 titled "Chief Ziebell tells about tests". I think it is very commendable of the Chief to take this deep interest toward the residents of Forest Park. However, I would like to go a little further and say that these tests should be given, starting with the Chief. After all, he is the person responsible for the operation .of the Department, and it is most important that we have the best man available for that position. Seeing as how the Chief is so much in favor of this program, he should be the first to submit himself to the tests. I am sure that the Chief would agree with the above, if not he should be ordered to take these tests. After all, it is he who wants the best tor the residents of the Village of Forest Park. Let me quote the last sentence of your article. "If these same tests were available ten years ago, I believe police work In Forest Park would be greatly advanced". Unquote. To this I say AMEN. Very truly yours, Richard C. Archambault Patrolman - Disability Leave Forest Park Police Department
