Laundry & Cleaners 20% Discount Cash & Carry on Dry Cleaning ~ 7408 Harrison St. FO 6-0392 Corner Harlem & Washiniton Forest Park Chief Ziebell Reports on Winter Driving Chief of Police Edwin Ziebell Issued his own weather report today for Forest Park and vicinity According to the chief there's" one thing certain: We're still in for our share of winter storms •with their predictable results on traffic -- tie-ups caused by stalled vehicles. "When that happens," Chief Ziebell warned, "vitally needed emergency equipment maybeun- able to get through. Snow removal operations are usually seriously hindered." He emphasized that his department would be ready to do all it can to keep traffic moving, and offered suggestions to help keep roads and streets clear despite a storm's poor visibility and slippery streets: - - • BEFORE YOU START, you must be able to see -- and be seen. Clear snow and ice off all windows, and from all light lenses. Be sure lights are working properly. If you use a spray-on de-icer, wipe windshield clear of streaks. Smear-free windshield 'wipers, are essential to clear away heavy slush and snow. This means good blades & adequate arm pressure. The defroster must put out a good stream of hot air, and the washer filled with the recommended anti-freese solution. TO GET UNDERWAY, start in second gear if your car has a stick shift. With automatic, use "Drive" or the gear recommended by the manufaturer. Apply gas sparingly -- easy does it! ON THE ROAD, keep your distance— and then some. You need a bigger safety cushion in winter, even for normal stops. GET THE FEEL OF THE ROAD; it's never quite the same. Ice near thawing is twice as slippery as it is at zero. Oversteering on ice causes most skids. Plan maneuvers well in advance. Anticipate lane changes & turns & make them gradually. TO RECOVER FROM A.SKID, steer in the direction of the skid. Pump your brakes to maintain steering control as you stop. USE SNOW TIRES, they provide more traction than regular tires. Studded snow tires give added traction on ice. They should be used on all 4 wheels, however, to improve steering control as well as traction. DEPEND UPON REINFORCED TIRE CHAINS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS. Tests show that they provide the ultimate in both stopping and pulling ability on glare ice or deep snow. But remember, even with tire chains, speeds far slower than normal are necessary. These, suggestions, the chief pointed out, have been developed through many years of testing by the National Safety Council's Committee on Winter Driving Hazards and are recommended by the International Accociation of Chiefs of Police. "In the final analysis," Chief Ziebell concluded, "whether or not tie-ups occur again this winter depends on how well drivers adapt to conditions. "Some cities require chains or effective snow tires on 'snow routes.' But in the long run, it's drivers living up to their responsibilities that keeps our community 'on-the-move.' " Larry Kaercher Your editor oays Each day now, more and more of us are becoming aware of the coming village election. Primary day is February 23rd and the election on April 20th. Already, various candidates have scheduled or are scheduling meetings in various halls, homes and basements. Workers are pledging themselves to their fav- ,orite candidate and that is as it should be. It's the American Way. From now on, free and sometimes unasked for advice will be given to candidates and workers alike. And I am no exception in this case. And so, here's my advice to all the candidates: "By all means, keep it clean!" A high level campaign HI a dignified manner should be the motto of all the political aspirants. It takes neither intelligence or ability to be vicious, rude or vindictive. If even one candidate resorts to "mudsllnging" it behooves the remaining candidates not to bring themselves down to that level. It is truthfully to their advantage. Last but not least, all candidates and their workers must never lose sight of the important fact that before all the campaigning began, many of them were very good friends. They should remain so when the battle is over and work together for the betterment of the community. To those of you running a campaign on a so-called "shoestring", I'm passing along a story I heard some years ago. It seems there was a candidate for a political office who Informed his audience that he did'not have the funds to purchase posters for telephone poles nor stickers for automobile bumpers. Consequently he said "when you travel through neighborhoods where there are no posters nailed on the light poles or you see an automobile without a "vote for" bumper sticker, you will immediately know those people are for me!" Jim Dale Named Heart Fund Chairman James Dale, 532 Ferdinand, has been named Forest Park chairman^for the 1971 Heart Fund campaign, accoring to A. G. Ferrari, Heart Fund chairman for West Cook County. Dale, who operates the Jim Dale Travel Agency at 7517 Madison, Forest Park, is serving his thrid year as area Heart Fund chairman. He has challenged his volunteer workers to raise $2,000 in the community for the research, education & community program activities of. the Chicago Heart Association and its five suburban divisions in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties. Af-Anon Family Group Free speaker programs are of- ferredto program chairmen, it was the Al-Anon Family Group in Forest Park. Parallel to the drug problem, more attention is also being focused on alcholism and such programs are capturing the public's interest, the group said. In nearly every club or civic or social organization, a high percentage of its members know of someone or may be related to a person who is an excessive drinker. Because more people are exposed to the problem, they are seeking answers and information. Types of programs Include a speaker or panel of Al-Anon members who tell of their experiences relating to the alcholic dilemma. They tell how they found help in Al-Anon. Al-Anon is a worldwide organization composed of non- alcholics who suffer from the affects of another person's drinking. Through informal discussions and accurate facts, they learn how to build a new way of life for themselves and their families. Any organization interested in making arrangements for a program on "Living with an Alcoholic", may phone 848-2707. Awarded Scholarship Judith Lange, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert E.

Kaske Agency of Aid Association for Lutherans. DeFranco Party On Saturday, January 9, 1971, Mr. Charles DeFranco, a resident of Forest Park, for the past 50 years or more, was entertained by his family of four daughters, two sons, their husbands, wives, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Also attending were his very dear neighbors, the Johnstons, the Chrlstensens ' and Willie.
