In this era of inflation, prices for prescription drugs have remained surprisingly stable. . . and their values continue to increase. The average prescription today costs only $3.68, just about 50? more than a decade ago (American Druggist Survey 1969) For This increase you are getting in many cases a new or improved medicine. In fact, six out. of ten of the most often prescribed drug products were not available ten years ago. Today's better medicines help doctors treat illness more effectively. Patients get out of the hospital sooner (or stay out altogether) and they get back on the job more speedily. More ailments are being controlled, including such serious ones as hypertension. Competition, not only in price, but in research, quality and service, Is keeping prescription drug prices at moderate levels. HOURS: Mon., Tue.,Thurs., Fri., . & Sat., 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. . Wed., 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, CLOSED ON SUNDAY RIERSON DRUGS 7328 Madison St. 366-0874 LETTERS to EDI TOR Dear Larry: Your candidates night was a great success. I thought it very informative to both the public and the candidates and it certainly was well managed. • . You are to be complimented for providing this fine public service.. Yours very truly, Howard R. Mohr Dear Mr. Kaercher: I am writing in conjunction with Mrs. Cirrantano's letter in the Review last week concerning the car wash at Lex'ington-and Harlem. This tfas been a severe problem to residents, motorists, pedestrians and children for the past two years. The residents have attended council meetings, submitted petitions with hundreds of signatures asking them to do sometlu'ng about the situation. . There have been several accidents directly attributed to the car wash traffic, cars front of the owner's homes have been sideswiped due to .the frenzy of motorists trying to keep their place in line and to not let anyone in front of them (That Includes everyday traffic to pass by). The motorists dump the garbage from their ashtrays and cars in the streets and yards. We have had some turn around right on our front yard with tiretracks to the sidewalk to avoid being a couple of cars later in line. A man stopped right in the middle of my street just last week and proceeded to wipe his dripping car off, doing a very thorough job for at least 10 minutes, blocking traffic. We were promised a lot of things: the owner would keep all the traffic on his own parking area and not allow it to line up on the residential streets and also he would have an off-duty policeman to direct the traffic. What do we get??? Any nice day take a ride by Lexington and see the mass confusion. We were told the village could not revoke his license because Harlem was commercial but that it "really was a problem and they didn't blame us for being concerned and upset." Then how was heallowedto open even another entrance that ends up on Lexington which is not a commercial street, creating even more confusion? I agree with Mrs. Cirrintano, I too am irate and for the'officials and the owner to wait until some tragedy happens to take firm and permanent action seems too high a price to pay. Mrs. Janet Sianta Dear Larry: . On behalf of the National Foundation-March of Dimes Metropolitan Chicago Chapter, I want to thank you for your cooperation during the past year and also for the newspaper space donated to us tor our 1971 January March of Dimes' campaign. We were quite pleased that your newspaper contributed so much space to advertise our public appeal to prevent birth defects. Because of your help, our campaign was more successful. Again, our thanks. I'm looking forward to working with you in the future; Sincerely Nelson Thomassqn HI 1971 General Campaign Chairman New Innovations in Social Security What's new in Social Security? "Teleclaims" and "Teleser- vice" are the newest innovations! You np longer have to file claims in person. Teleclaims is a rapid method of processing retirement, survivor's and disability claims by telephone. When you phone, your application is completed as far as possible. It is then sent to you for any needed supplementary information and your signature. Beneficiaries may report changes of address, death, work stop- and-start notices and various other items to Social Security by phone also. These reports, using "Teleservice" are processed very quickly and avoid mailing delays. Questions are answered swiftly and accurately at the same time. Teleclaims and Teleservice are beneficial to people who find traveling a hardship, and they eliminate the time, cost and inconvenience of an in-person visit to the district office. To phone the local Social Security office located at 1930 NorthHar-' lem Avenue, Elmwood Park, 111. phone 456-4900.
