FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1971, PAGE 14 - ' ' -A Lofty Inspection Commissioner James Sansone (left) and electrical superintendent Leonard Thiesse, begin their descent following inspection of new high-intensity street lighting along Hannah Avenue. The completed project stretches from Jackson Boulevard to Madison Street, and was done in conjunction with the street re-surfacing. "This involves more than just new lighting standards," Sansone said. "What's Important Is that the underground cable is new." "While they were digging for the new curbs, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to fix the lighting on this heavily traveled street," he said. . Sansone indicated he will continue to take advantage of such cost- cutting possibilities in the future, but emphasized that the permanent solution to Forest Park's street lighting problems will run "well into the seven figures." . .

He said they were bisque. I said they were parlan. After doing some reading, I have to admit wecouldbothbecorrect. • According to Edwin G. Warman, the term bisque, or biscuit china, is used to designate ware which has been fired only once and is not glazed. The body Is soft and porous but will no longer soften in -water as air-dried china will. Some Items are decorated while others are put on the market In the state in which they came from the kiln. In recent years, new items and reproductions have •entered the market.Manycollec- . tors have become wary and the demand has slackened, along with the prices. Parian ware is a true hard paste, white porcelain known as biscuit ware, so called because of the absence of a glaze. The effect is similar to marble which it was intended to simulate. Many ofthe figurines and groups are of religious or classical subjects. Tea sets, plaques, pitchers, vases and jewelry were made of this ware which originated in England about 1845. It became popular in the United States about 1860 and continued in public favor until around 1900. According to Mr. Warman, a bisque and parian are both unglazed. One is called biscuit china and the other, biscuit ware. One is soft and porous, the other hard paste. They look alike to the ordinary person and it's hard to distinguish one from the other. "Bob", we could both be right, whoknows"? Anyway, the figurines are lovely and they look great in my curib cabinet. Thanks a lot! The .house sale we were supposed to conduct for one of our customers before Christmas has been postponed until the weather is nicer and due to illness in their family. We'll keep you posted.
