WEJ)I<ESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1971 Established in 1889 C The Forest Park Lady Who Lives in a Little Box "You're so pretty. I like the way you fix your hair. I like the red dress you had on yesterday.'.' This is a sample of the fan mail Elizabeth Trench of Circle Avenue in Forest Park gets. She receives 200 to 300 pieces of mail every week from her fans who are four and five year old girls and boys who watch her every day on "Romper Room". The children's program is shown at 8:30 a.m. on WGN-TV (Channel 9). ' The show is staged live and almost anything can happen. "The children are so delightful" said Elizabeth. "You never know what they're going to say next." One time on the-'show, during the milk-and-cookies break, a little boy announced, "I can't drink my milk." "Okay, you don't have to." "Do you want to know why? I'm allergic to it" he persisted. "Well, then, you don't have to drink your milk", Elizabeth said. "Do you want to know what happens? I get diarrhea!" The most common reaction the youngsters have when they appear on the show for the -first time is that Miss Elizabeth is a REAL person. "They think of me as someone who lives in that little box, the television set" she said. Elizabeth and her husband moved to Forest Park in January. One little girl told her that "your daddy works "here" (meaning her husband). "What makes you say that?" Elizabeth asked. "It's because that man tells you what to do and at home my daddy tells my mommy what to do." The little girl was referring to {he assistant director. On another occasion, Bobby insisted that Elizabeth's husband worked on the show. •"How do you know that?" she asked. "Because I heard somebody call you Sweetheart and that's what my daddy calls my mommy."
