Curran, candidate for Commissioner, stated that more direct action on matters that affect tl|e village should be taken Instead of waiting until It is brought before the attention of the board by citizens. Many times the age old slogan, "A stitch in time saves nine", could be applied to matters that directly affectthe citizens of Forest Park. ' The first instance that comes to mind is the recent shutdown (Phaseout) of the Naval Torpedo Plant. While certain Individuals In Washington were deciding the fate of the plant, affecting many citizens of Forest Park, action should have been taken Immediately instead of waiting for others to decide that fate of the plant. The proposed suggestion of converting the plants to a government facility is completely out of order to the economy of Forest Park. Of the some 1700 employees a large percentage are Forest Park residents. Curran also deplored the. possibility of a government facility with a large movement of truck in and out of the village. The factor that must be considered Is what traffic pattern would evolve • from a government installation with trucks going in and out every day and the safety of the children of Forest Park must be considered. Curran feels that long range planning must enter into the future of Forest Park and plans and methods should be undertaken to make them benefit Forest Park. FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 10, 1971, PAGE 17 COLOR TV IDEAS by FRANK MARLOVITS B e-c a use Color TV was c o n s 1 d e r ^ ably higher priced than black and white a jfew years ago, alot of wrong notions formed in people's minds. One was that Color tubes wore out faster than black and white. This Isn't true and neither is the idea that color needs more service that B & W. Actually the difference in maintenance cost is so small that it shouldn't be any problem for anyone. And when you consider the extra enjoyment of color viewing, you'll forget this difference quickly because .it's worth it. Phone F06-4959 and let MARLO give you more details about Color TV. And don't forget, we're still doing a fine Job on BiW TV, radios, stereos and so on. 24 Hour Phone Service MARLO Television Sef vice 3664959 407 DesPIaines Ave. ELECT Jeremiah (Jerry) CURRAN for Commissioner Library News As Forest Park residents send thousands .of romantic or even comic valentines on February 14, they will be practicing a custom which can be traced back hundreds of years and marking a festival which has origins in both Christian and pre-Christian holidays according to Miss Josephine Austin, local librarian. From materials available inthe library's reference department, it was learned that the paper valentine with its inscribed sentiment dates from the 16th century. In fact, the first printed valentine may have been the frontispiece of a book of verses to help the not-so-talented find an appropriate bit of love poetry to put into their valentine. It was titled A Valentine Writer, published 1GG9. The Feast of St. Valentine, observed as a religious holiday, reveals that there may have been more than one St. Valentine, two saints endured martyrdoms in Roman days. While somewhat legendary, there seem to be some historical foundation for these martyrdoms. Although the celebration of St. Valentine's Day Is most commonly thought of as dating back to a saint's death on February 14, 270 A.D., the custom of a festival for young lovers In mid-February pre-dates Christianity, Involving the feast of Lupercalla, observed by the Romans for lovers. There arc many hooks and other materials which deal with the customs of holidays in the United States and .other nations, even suggesting games andpartyideas and appropriate food to serve. So from your library to all who send valentines, Happy Valentine Day, and let's put action into the expression "I just love to read". The Forest Park Public Library will be closed February 15th for George Washington's NEW birthday date. ' arge Sissulak Moustache cups - The flowing moustache became the feature of many men's faces after the Mexican War. Proper care ot a. moustache Included curlers, oil, dye, brushes, combs and even nits that held It curled at night. After all his care of his moustache, no man wanted to dip it tn hot coffee and spoil his appearance. The moustache cup was a large coffee cup with a porcelain ledge near the rim. The curled moustache could rest on the ledge, safe from the dangers of hot drinks. The first factory to make a moustache cup was Harvey Adams &• Company of Longton, Staffordshire, England, about 1850. The cups and moustaches went out of style about 1900 but as anyone can see, they (at least the moustaches) are very much In style today. Moustache cups were made by most of the famous factories, from demitasse size to quart size. They are made of silver, pottery or porcelain and were usually made-to order for the individual. In Victoria's day It was considered good tasteto give a moustache cup inscribed "To Pop", "Forget Me Not", "Love the Giver", "Birthday Greetings", "•Present", or "Remember Me". This is Brotherhood Week and we all know Valentine Day is February 14th, so, if your loved one has a moustache, give him a moustache cup. If you can find one that is. If he doesn't have a moustache, maybe he'd like an old fashioned shaving mug. I'd like to wish all my friends and customers a very special Happy Valentine Day. Special wishes to Z.V.S., Mrs. Bess Roos, Bea Bleger, Pete Doern- bosch, Peg Moore Dahlberg and her Carl, Mr. & Mrs. Youngblood, Mrs. Fred Leinweber (we miss him too) and to my faithful helper, Marguerite Fox. We'll be one of the dealers at Notre Dame High School in DeKalb on Feb. 14. It's a great flea market and for a very worthy cause/Hope to see you all there on Valentine Day. Vote for Edward R.
