Beginning NAME ADDRESS 19 to 19 Law Enforcement Is Community Responsibility The entire citizenry, not just the police department, should work for better law enforcement, Michael J. Hewlett, state Auditor of Public Accounts, said here Sunday night. Howlett was the featured speaker at a dinner of the Champaign County Law Enforcement Officers Association intheKaravan Club in Rantoul. He said the American policeman is doing an excellent job In spite of poor pay, inadequate training, long hours, dangerous work and many other handicaps, "The burden of law enforcement should, not be just the job of the policeman," he said. "As Individual citizens, as community leaders, as public officials, we all have an obligation to improve the conditions under which a policeman must work. "We should elect officials who insist on enforcing all laws uniformly. Nothing erodes respect for law more rapidly than selective enforcement. "A man who steps from a home with illegal plumbing and wiring and then receives a ticket for jaywalking is bound to lose some respect for law. "We should not burden policemen with still more unenforceable laws. For example, take all the laws concerned with alcohol. One in four of all arrests is for drunkenness. "What must it mean to a policeman who, night after night, rounds up the same drunks and spends hours booking them? Wouldn't it help if we turned over this problem, with other health problems, to the doctors? "We must do something about the availability of guns, especially hand guns. The President's Commission on Violence estimates there are 90 million firearms, including 24 million hand guns. "Americans pay $5 billion a year for police, prosecutors, courts and corrections. But we pay twice that much for tobacco and 2-1/2 times as much for alcoholic beverages. "More than what we are willing to pay is what we ask policemen to do. We ask them to inspect buildings, shelter pets, register bicycles and automobiles, conduct drivers'exams, give parking tickets and handle crowds at public events. "Today a policeman must have a knowledge of chemistry, physiology, law, physics and psychology. He deals with problems that did not exist as recently as ten years ago. "Canrjus unrest as a police problem is only about six years old. Widespread drug abuse is only about three or four years old. "If we could pay our policemen as professionals and could train them not just in first aid and marksmanship but adequately for the 19"?0's, we would be doing a better job for law enforcement." •SIGNATURE Music, Theatre and the Arts by Ruth Geils The old Montclare Theatre at Harlem and Grand throbbed with new life last Thursday evening when talented JonnGrune of Maywood worked his magic on the Golden-Voiced Barton Theatre Pipe Organ in CATOS'S Christmas Show. The talented and personable Mr. Grune spiced his performance with frequent dashes ot wit as he introduced hi- own program, which ranged Irom Faust to George M. Cohan, M)st impressive was his rendition of "Dance of the Comedians" from The Bartered Bride, an opera that dates back 100 years and most beautiful was his interpretation of Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers". Mr. Grune displayed his considerable talent in arranging'with his charming world tour of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" which he presented with Spanish flair, Italian beauty, south of the border gusto and in Strauss' waltz style. His "Something Old, £om nthlng New" segment included popular songs of yesterday and today and managed to touch every member of the audience, since that audience included not only many senior citizens seeking nostalgic reminders of yesteryear, but a surprising number of the "now generation", complete with boots and beards. It looks as If C^TOE has bridged the generation gap! Mr. Grune again displayed his creative versatility in his accompaniment of the Laurel and Hardy silent film "Big Business" which provided a splendid comic touch to this evening of fine entertainment. If there were to be any criticism of John Grune's excellent performance, it could only be by those who attempted to join in the Sing-a-long. The choice of songs was a delight but Mr. Grune s greatest talent is not as an accompanist and he set too fast a pace for the uncertain amateur singers trying to follow the slides. One was not however, Inclined critical after «njoying an evening with John Grune and the hundreds of organ enthusiasts who were drawn away from the comforts of home and TV on one. of the worst nights of the year. It was a trip back in time to the happier days when good, clean LIV£ entertainment was worth going out for, even when the weather was bad. The first CATOE show of 1971 is scheduled for February 11 and features Lyn Larson recently returned from an Australllan concert tour. Location will be announced. Gloria Wilder of River Forest is musical director of EBENEZER and this weekend is your last chance to enljoy The Village Players- production of this musical adaptation of "A Christmas Carol."

You might get hung up on the enchanting collection of stuffed creatures that line the walls, too. f-^ark L/ranamoth er 6 The Forest Park Grandmothers Club held :heir Christmas party on December 9th.
