Always Ready to Serve You THE "EYES" HAVE IT Eve hygiene should begin early in life. A baby should not stare directly into the sun, because the outer eye membranes are delicate and burn easily. Every child should have a pre-school ^eye examination. If a defect is discovered, the future problems of poor grades or an emotional quirk may be avoided. At a young age, children should be taught to protect their eyes from injury and infection resulting from rubbing the lids-with dirty fingers. Sharp instruments such as -scissors and knives, should be kept out of the toddler's reach. When buying toys, consider the age of the child, playthings with sharp points and edges are dangerous. Warn about the hazards of throwing stones and 'dueling with sticks. HARD AND FAST, rules should be-established before the older child is given a • bow and arrow, slingshot, etc. . Lastly, shatterproof lenses are safer for children who wear glasses.

LETTERS to EDITOR Dear Larry: I would like to apologize to the Fraternal Order of Police for not having mentioned a very important fact in an article publisftfed-in the Review two weeks ago by the Kiwanis- Club thanking the Girl Scouts for helping to wrap presents. I forgot to mention that these presents were collected by Forest Park's Fraternal Order of Police as they were last year. They comprised a good part of the presents delivered Christmas morning^ Inasmuch as I submitted the article, it was my mistake. I would like to say we very much appreciate the cooperation of the Fraternal Order of Police and promise it will not happen next year.. Forgetfully yours, James E.

The only Old-Fashioned MEAT MARKET in town QUALITY MEAT CUT TO YOUR ORDER •PRIME'ME/OS West End Market In tl\e Heart of ForestTark 7415 Madison St. 366-0116 Library News . Now being the time for miking resolutions that may not be kept, anyway, and the time running out on this idea, it occurs to us that this credo taken from a Wisconsin Library publication says what we might be moved to say in less eloquent language: We believe in libraries: " They hold the recorded es- perience of men, / Information reliable and unrestricted, ' Resources for study, for vocational training, for enlightened citizenship, Literature that lights the mind and recreates the soul. We believe in them as inviting places, Welcoming those who need or seek their materials and services, indispensable to students of all ages and to progressive communities, ' .Supported by every level of government " And placed within the free, eatty reach of all. We believe in librarians: They hold the key to libraries, And with skill and dedication, they can unite resources with people; We believe that these catalylists of, learning must be persons of integrity, fairness, dignity and warmth, . That they must grow personally and professionally, Joining with others to work toward the highest standards for their profession, , That, fortified with thebesjtech- niques, with vision and enthusiasm, They nuist accept llielr respons- ibjlity to serve an ever-changing world. If we can live up to this, we' will have truly fulfilled our 1971 resolutions. Music, Theatre and the Arts HAPPY NEW YEAR! We'd like to start the year by thanking.all the organizations who have participated in this new column, and especially those who have been kind enough to say, nice things about us. Let's hope that 1971 sees a growing interest in all of the arts by our community and we invite all who are presenting musical and theatrical performances to keep us informed. Our grapevine tells us that this may be the year Forest Park will launch its own art fair. Certainly there are many fine artists in our community.and we'd all like to see more of their works. * * * Everyone is familiar with the story of "Peter Pan" and now by Ruth Geils the St. James Christie Academy of Performing Arts will bring this delightful legend to life, not Everyone is familiar with the story of "Peter Pan" and now the St. James Christie Academy of Performing Arts will bring this delightful legend to life, not with Mary Martin In the lead, but featuring our own talented children.

" ...-•• * * * The Chicago Public Library Art Department will be featuring the works of two women, a sculptor and a painter beginning January 4. Mrs. Clyde'Ball, the sculptor, studied at Iowa State University and Chicago's Art Institute, and works in her studio in the Dune country of northern Indiana. Mrs. Ball has a refreshing philosophy about her work which is.probably shared by allar.tists; "Art is a reaction against the conformity of life. Everyone must make a'small oasis in a desert of "machine made" slick, production*-line goods. My work is a hunger for beauty - an extension of nature in its many forms." The second artist is Mrs. Maynard Kier of Highland Park, a painter- who received a 1st place award at the Suburban Fine Art Center outdoor show in 1970. She says she "works in a frantic household . but finds it stimulating . . A true artist must please himself first and be satisfield and confident of the results . . To create and use one's mind is the beaut'iful key." • The -work of these two talented women can be viewed Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 9:00 and on Saturday from 9 to 5:30.
