The do-it-yourself kick has reached Into many fields, sometimes with less than electrifying results. Take diet faddist, for example. The American Medical Association has warned against the fad of reducing blood fat and cholesterol by the individual's own planned diet. The AMA stated in part: "Dieters who believe they can cut down their blood cholesterol without medical supervision are in for a rude awakening. It can't be done. It could even be dangerous to try." There is positively no danger, however, that you won't be delighted with our prescription service at THIS WEEK'S HELPFUL HINT: Adhesive tape comes off easier and with less pain when the skin is held taut and the tape is pushed away from it. RIERSON DRUGS 7328 Madison St. 366-0874 Vote for |X Edward R. LAMBKE Commissioner Receives First Loyola Dental Hygiene Degree Mrs. Thomas Paulson, 82!lO W. Roosevelt lid., Forest Park, will receive the fir:. I degree in dental hygiene, offered by Loyola University of Chicago during commencement exercises set for Sunday, Feb. Mth at 2:20 p.m. in the Auditorium Theatre, 00 E. Congress Pkwy. Mrs. Paulson wilj receive the B.S. degree with a major in dental hygiene. The four-year dental hygiene program started at Loyola in 1969, is the only program of its kind in the state of Illinois leading to a degree. . Loyola, like some other schools throughout the state, offers a two- year dental hyglenists certificate program. The certificate program was initialed at Loyola in 1968. Mrs. Paulson is the former Joy Patricia Ulaiaiikof Maitowoc, Wise. Her parents, Dr. i Mrs. East Coast Critics Hail Former Forest Park Artist William Schwedler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Art Schwedler of 132 Desplalnes Avenue In Forest Park, says his paintings "are crazy and put people off". Art critics disagree. They say, "These beautiful paintings are crazy enough and they do fall somewhere between objects and landscapes, but they enormously involve the very people who are bugged by them." A two-month exhibition of paintings by Schwedler was recently held at the Pyramid Galleries in Washington, D.C. He is described as P. young painter out of Chicago now working in New York and his successful exhibit received widespread coverage and praise in the Washington Evening Star newspaper. BUFFALO TONE m 1970, oil A acrylic on canv.ls. 90"x78" Lane in Nam'tnv.o Tu explain Schwedlor's work, if it's at all-possible, the viewer becomes inextricably engaged in the movementsnt'rope, -.vend, brick, or steel which enter from everywhere, outside the canvas and move with sturdy intention tu nowhere on the other side. His paintings, which are huge in size (!IO inches by 78 inches), present perplexing objects of an impossible ami unreal nature, in a space which, itself, does not exist. According, to Benjamin Furgoy, WasliiiiKton Evening Star staff writer, Schwedler has developed the mysterious quality of identifiable objects. He wrenches the object out of context by presenting it in unique croppings or details, be removing it from its customary environment and placing it in the -ambiguous abstract space, of modernist American painting. The result is akin to an up-dating of surrealism or metaphysical painting. The paintings reproduce well in black and white (as shown here) but actually they are meticulously painted in close valued colors and the color has a lot to do with their effectiveness. The objects seem as emblematic as.somu abstraction and yet they assert their reality. With reference to Schwedler as a Chicagoan, the Pyramid Gallery brochure states that Chicago is a city with "more distinguished architecture than any other city in the United States." It is tempting to bolieve, according to the brochure, that the consciousness of strong materials carefully put together imbued the young Schwcdler and resulted in his present, contradictory strnctu res.

Announce Volunteers For Community-Wide Heart Fund Campaign . A total of 117 people in Forest Park died of heart disease in 1970, stated Jim Dale, chairman of this year's Heart Funt campaign in this area. Every day new techniques and research are being conducted to give others a chance to escape this dreaded killer. The Forest Park Heart campaign, now in progress during the month of Feb- .ruary, gives everyone in the community an opportunity to contribute to "the most vital health crusade of our time", he said. The following volunteers will be calling on their neighbors this month to leave literature and ask for Heart Fund donations; Mrs. Sharon Roe, Mrs. Ellen Tanenberg, Mrs. Martha Brown, Mrs. Agnes Harkins, Miss Agnes Saffer, Miss Sarah Rhey, Miss Bernadine Majewki; Mrs. Elmer Lussow, Mrs. Margaret Schloman, Mrs. Rella Robinson, Miss Tina Wiess, Mrs. Madelyn Brandel, Miss Celeste Cosgrove, Miss Amy Benjamin, Miss Cindy Olligis, Mrs. Bernice Klemps; Miss Maria Sunzeri, Mrs. Alice Geyer, Mrs. Abraham Karlin, Mrs. J.

Volunteers are especially needed to call on residents living in . apartment buildings. A person may cover only his or her own apartment building if desired. Volunteers may take one side of a block such as the odd or even-numbered addresses. Calls are made at the volunteer's convenience, anytime during this month. "We are not asking very much - certainly, not more than an hour of your time," Dale said. "Considering the seriousness of the problem and the fact that heart diseases pose a threat to every family, the investment is surely a wise one." Those who wish to volunteer a limited amount of time may call Dale at 3CG--1-135. "Besides the invaluable service you will be jiving, you will also be getting 'a chance to meet your neighbors." he said. "Those who volunteer say they enjoy the experience of getting acquainted and making new friends.' 1 Over 300 letters are now being sent to business people in the community wide effort to raise funds for the Heart campaign. This year Forest Park's goal is $2000. Dale, who is owner of a travel agency at 7517.
