Talk of Tkc T own by Jackie Schulz Early this Monday morning, I attended a breakfast press conference with U.S. SENATOR CHAKLES PERCY. The senator is very charming, handsome and ,suave. The breakfast was fit for a thrasher - scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, chicken livers, English muffins, sweet rolls, orange juice and coffee! Alter the breakfast, there was a question and answer period during which the senator directly asked for a question from my unfortunate friend - YikesU She did ask an astute one about welfare and revenue sharing but we were both so rattled we couldn't concentrate on his response. Some reporters we are! He answered questions concerning the proposed social security legislation which will enable persons over 65 to earn $2400 instead of the present $1680. Good news for lots of people. In the field of education since the very poor are often the recipients of much aid, and the rich can afford to send their children to private colleges without imposing too great a hardship on the family budget, It's us poor* guys in the middle who seem to lose out so often on the education of children. So Senator Percy has a plan whereby tax deductions or tax credits will be available to middle income families to be used for private school education. Best wishes to EDWARD VAN LENNER and JEAN ANN ZITTERGRUEN who will be married in Garber, Iowa, February 20th.

"SANTO RIZZO wants everyone to know the trees in the park do NOT belong to the village. They belong to the Park, a separate taxing body. JOHN and MAURA STOCKY of Sylmar, California would like their friends here to know they were not injured in the earthquake. The Stockeys live quite near the Veterans Hospital which suffered such devastation. RUTH WARNER has some happy news - she saw the first robin of '71! Ruth has been feeding the birds all winter and never saw him before so she thinks he's probably not a hold-over from last year. In 36 years in their home on Marengo Avenue, the Warners have never seen a robin so early in the year. Maybe her robin will show up that gloomy groundhog in Puxatawnee, Pennsylvania who's always predicting long winters.- Vote for CURRAN CARES "Let Him Prove It" JEREMIAH J.
