Mental Health "Operation Snowball" 98,000 . . . 99,000 . . . 100,000 items. Items which will be used to fill holiday packages for patients suffering from mental illness. 100,000 may sound like a large quantity. However, il seems rather insignificant when you realize that there are 15,000 mental patients in our state hospitals and nursing homes. Many of these patients find that they are unable to share in the spirit of the holiday season because they have either been forgotten or they have no loved ones. A gift from the community can bring with It the acceptance and reassurance which help to brighten what might otherwise be "just another day." This Is why the Mental Health Association sponsors Operation Snowball. Through this program they try to show the patients that "someone cares." To accomplish this, the Association needs your help. Gifts will be needed as well as a volunteer corps to help wrap and assemble the packages. Each gift will contain "basic need" Items, toiletries, soap and candy. (A suggested gift list appears below.) Gifts need not be wrapped but they must be new. Mrs. Lucille Doyle of 106 Lathrop Avenue In Forest Park is the Community Chairman of "Operation Snowball". The local operation snowball collection for Forest Park is the Pat Hollahan Dodge Agency at 801 S. Harlem Ave. in Forest Park. For further information, please call Mrs. Doyle at 771-8820 Anyone interested in volunteering some of their holiday time can help directly within the Snowball Wrapping Center at 407 South Dearborn (Suite 400).

Larry Kaercher I our I'.ui ilor Dnys A long time ago, someone once said "today's newspaper wraps up tomorrow's garbage." This, no doubt is true, as is such things as newspapers being used as sterile covering during childbirth or any other emergency where sterile bandages are not available. Naturally, the primary purpose of a paper such as the RE VIEW is to inform the people of the com- nvjnlty of local news plus items of national Interest. Secondly, various columnists, feature stories, crossword puzzles, etc. add to the interest and readability. All of this and a little more total up to a good newspaper. Unfortunately, people will read only what they think is Interesting. They rarely read a paper from the first to the last page. Consequently, this and other newspapers are sometimes unjustly labeled as having "nothing In It"! Wendell Phillips once said: "Let me make the newspapers and I care not what is preached In the pulpit or what is enacted in congress." We should stop here for a minute and explain we are not "coping a plea", looking for sympathy or accolades. Rather, building up to the importance of the people in the area furnishing news to their local newspaper and the importance of a newspaper to the community. Many fine groups, civic bodies and organizations in our village are kind enough to furnish us articles concerning their efforts, their programs and their social events. We welcome and thank them for their articles and reports. It helps us to tell our readers about the many community minded individuals Interested and working towards making our town a better place to live In. To prove the Importance of news sent to us from organizations and individuals, allow me to quote a few facts: Last week's issue of the REVIEW contained fourty-two different news items, one editorial, five different columnists, one crossword puzzle and nineteen photographs with over one hundred faces and names included in and with the photos. All this not counting the display and classified advertising. Of the fourty-two news items, only six were written by me. Of the nineteen photographs, six were taken by our staff photographer, Arnold Walderson. Tills all adds up to thirty-six stories and thirteen photographs sent in to us for publication. Obviously, It is very important to us to receive and print these many local interest stories,as they make up a good portion of the paper. We, at the REVIEW In turn, seek out news by attending various civic meetings, covering the the local courtroom and police station and conducting Interviews. „ What this all adds up to is, working together we can achieve a common goal of a fine newspaper, a great town, and an informed community built on pride and effort.
