FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1970, PAGE 4 Retires From Coaching Let Dohr Les Dohr, formerly of Forest Park, recently retired after 36 years of coaching football, basketball and baseball. For the last eight years he served as athletic director and coach of all three sports at Lake Forest Academy. Prior to coming to Lake Forest Academy, Les was part owner and a director of Harvard School for Boys on Chicago's south side, which now is known as the Harvard-St. George School. Les coached the teams there and also was principal. Les will be remembered by many Forest Parkers as an all-around athlete at Proviso East High School during the early thirties. Later he became a three-sport letterman at Lake Forest College, playing football for the great coach Ralph Jones. Next June '71, Les Dohr and his wife Lydla will retire to their new home in Lake Germain, Wisconsin, 35 miles north of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Les begins his retirement at age 60 (and he looks about 40). He says this about retiring: "It will be a new adjustment but I decided 60 was a good time to do it. You always miss your friends, the teams and the games but you know that will happen sooner or later anyway."

Ono Concordia student worker remarked, "While the weather was cold, we- were warm;d by the kind and friendly people who contributed. We are truly grateful for the interest and support which the community gives our college."

All gifts will be used to purchase educational aids and equipment destroyed in the unfortunate fire which struck the college last May 7. Library News Books for Christmas It's not too early, nor too late to think of Christmas presents if you like to give gifts with a personal touch - things you have made yourself! The Forest Park Library has numerous books which offer suggestions for making hundreds of attractive and useful gifts. Some that stress the Christmas angle are THE CHRISTMAS HANDBOOK by Popular Mechanics Press; THE JOYFUL CHRISTMAS CRAFT book by Siegel; McCall's CHRISTMAS MAKE-IT BOOK; Today's WOMAN'S CHRISTMAS IDEAS; and MAKE YOOROWN MKRRT CHRISTMAS by Wertser. While on the subject of Christmas, all who want "A Christmas Book" are urged to view and select from the Christmas roundtable, three layers of books on Christmas - stories, poems, plays, legends, handicarft, and other joyful titles. Returning to the subject of gift- making, so many books exist it is hard to select just a few. Instead maybe a list of fields that lend themselves to Christmas gift suggestions may be useful: sewing, pottery, woodworking, toy making, dressing dolls, jewelry making, furniture building, weaving, rug making, leathercraft, plastic projects, knitting and other handwork, tin- craft, plywood ideas, model making, and decorative gadgets. Here's to a Merry Christmas morning with the words "And I made it myself." St. John Ruth Guild December 7th is the date when the Ruth Guild of St. John Church will have a book review on "How Far Bethlehem" presented by Florence Rauch. There will also be an exchange of layette clothes for the Infants Lutheran World Relief.

Talk of The Tovrn by Jackie Schulz The Children's Theatre Company is currently presenting "All Baba and the Magic Cave" through December 13th. It's an up-to-date version of the old favorite saturated with adventure and suspense. The ending of this original and timely versionof the Arabian Nights will even have adults sitting on the edge of their seats. Take some little friend or relative - he'll he delighted. And so will his mommy - she'll love you for taking him out of the house for a few hours some Saturday or Sunday just before Ctiristmas. Welcome horn.' JIM 3AV1S!
