Police Crack Down on Bogus Check Passers In an effort to combat tlm caslting of had checks in our village, the Forest Park Police Department has instituted a foolproof system to be utilized by all merchants and business houses. Below is the sign to be displayed and a 3x5 card to be filled out by anyone desiring to cash a check. Detective Don Hinz, with the co-operation and approval of Chief lid 7,iebell, is heading this innovation for the benefit of all business men in town. Det. Hinz stated "Tim business people are losing too much money through the cashing of bad or stolen checks infiltrating our community. Certainly, an honest person will not take offense to this system that is a definite deterrent to the criminal types who attempt to fleece the public in this manner." Chief /iclii'll reported "There has been mi alarming increase in bogus check cashing. However, this system will cut that down to nil if our local business people will use it as it is intended, for their protection." These more than necessary display signs anil cards will be distributed free of charge to all businesses by the Forest Park police Department. Extra copies are available at the station.

Note: The following is a copy of a letter sent to the President of the United States from l|ow;g-d H. Mohr. It is gratifying and encouraging to note our fine senator is continuing his efforts for his people despite the insurmountable odds o[ winning a fight that many have ipven up as a lost cause. November 2, 1070 President Kichaid M. Nixon The White House Washington, Ii.C. Deal Mi. President: The deactivation of the Naval Ordnance Station here in Forest Park has become a problem of considerable magnitude for me and for Congressman Harold Collier who represents this area. The depth of the feeling was made clear to me as I met the people during the course of tills campaign. It is not so much the decision to deactivate the plant from its present use. Congressman Collier and I are amply prepared to reconcile that with <mr constituents as part of a necessary cutback in appropriations. What disturbs us most is the recent word from Washington that this plant may be taken over by the Post Office Department foi use as a mail distribution center. We take the position that such a proposal ighores completely the potential of this costly and quid 1 sophisticated installation, it is a model n and desirable manufacturing facility of considerable size and It should bo used as such - whether by government or by private industry. It is our feeling that not enough has been done to derive maximum use from this plant and that private industry should be notified of its availability before it is committed to use by the Post Office Department. There are other ramifications of great concern to the people of Foi est Park. Briefly stated, they relate to the difficult problem of traffic and safety in tills already congested area and to the strong feeling of our officials that some effort should be made to get this facility on the tax rolls if it is not to he used in the defense program. These are valid concerns which Congressman Collier and I would be glad to document upon request. Our hope is that you will be able to take a look at tills problem awl see if you do not ttiink there is merit to our contention that this facility was designed and equipped for production and should be used as such. My people and I will be most grateful for your consideration. Sincerely, Howard If. Mohr [CROSSWORD •+ ~ * it\ A. c. (,or<i t >n\
