The idea began with Betty. Crocker coupons. . . received a boost from a clergyman and a nurse who raised $3,000 . . . and became a reality when a group of dedicated people in Forest Park rolled up their sleeves and transformed a church basement into a life- giving facility. The Ladies Auxiliary at St. Peters Church, 446 Hannah Avenue, were collecting Betty Crocker coupons. They mailed the coupons to the National Kidney Foundation in New York to convert into cash for equipment for the Foundation. Rev. R. W. Roth included an announcement in St. Peter's church bulletin to remind the women to bring their Betty Crocker coupons to the next meeting. Mrs. Henry Hilgenberg, a member of the congregation, saw the announcement and telephoned Rev. Roth the following day. She told of her neighbor, Eric Fielden, who was going to West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park three times a week for kidney treatments. She had learned that the hospital was overcrowded with patients who needed this care and that an additional center was needed. Would the Ladies Auxiliary be interested in such a venture? "It seems to me this would be a bigger project than saving coupons, •Mrs. Hilgenberg said. Rev. Roth arranged for a meeting with Dr. Robert Muehrcke, medical director of West Suburban Hospital, to find out what their needs were. He reported back to the Church Council, accompanied by Mr. Marion Shehan, head nurse at the hospital, and who is a recent resident of Forest Park. Unanimous and enthusiastic approval was given by the Council to transform the church basement into a facility for the Kidney Foundation. How much money would it take to do the Job? Extensive plumbing, a new floor, and new wiring would cost around $3,000 before the kidney machines could be installed. Rev. Roth and Mrs. Shehan went into action. They talked to .people and spoke before the Lions Club, VFW, Kiwanis, American Legion and many other organizations. The donations started coming in. They appeared before the Village Council and received approval for the project. The money was raised and a lot of people contributed many hours and know-how to get the job done. On May 18, 1969, the Forest Park Community Kidney Center, Inc. was opened in the Parish House of St. Peters Church. It is called the Satellite Kidney Room because it Is an offshoot of the Kidney center at West Suburban. A board of directors was formed, composed of representatives of the various supporting groups. Rev. Roth is president; James Stange, Lions Club, secretary and Bill McKenzie, Village official, treasurer. . . Board members are Ralph Weber, VFW: Ed O'Shea, Jr., Kiwanis . Club; William Vrtis, Fire Department; Roy Mohr, American Legion; William Marousek, St. Peters Church; Peter Thiesse, St. Peters Church; Ralph Behn, Kiwanis Club; and Raymond Kunz, St. Peters Church. . The Satellite Room is subsidized by the State of Illinois. The Forest Park facility now has three kidney machines valued at $3,000 each. Two machines were given by West Suburban Hospital and a third was purchased with a donation received from Calvary Community United Church, 1902 S. nth Avenue, Maywood, The church was reportedly dissolved and $3,000 was .given as a gift to the Forest Park kidney center. Donations continue to come in from many local organizations and from Individuals, often stipulated as a Memorial Gift. Last year 1500 persons received total dialysis treatment at the Satellite Room, where Mrs. Shehan and Mrs. Eric Fielden are in charge. The kidney equipment has been described as a "washing machine" because it cleanses the patient's entire blood supply. Without this treatment the patient could not live. At-home treatment is possible when another person is trained as a technician. One of the major programs the Forest Park Community Kidney Fund is planning is to offer scholarships in training technicians to qualified persons. Doctors will contact Triton College and other sources for interested students. The Community Fund hopes to offer two scholarships at $1,500 each. Eric Fielden fled January 14, 1971. But the Forest Park Satellite Room in St. Peters Church is sort of a living tribute to him because it all centered around him when the idea was born. by Marge Sissulak Oddities in Spoons and Forks The_sucket fork - The sucket fork is an odd piece of silver with a fork at one end of the handle and a spoon at the other. The name "sucket" refers to a preserved grape or plum mixture. The sticky fruit mixture was often eaten with the fingers. The sucket fork was developed so that it was possible to eat the fruit, with the fork end and the juice with the spoon end. The sucket fork was never a common piece of tableware, even in England. According to Ralph and Terry Kovel, a few are known to have been made during the seventeenth and eighteenth cen- . turies and only ten marked American-made sucket forks are known. I've never .seen one, have you? The mote spoon - When tea was brewed"in'"the eighteenth centum, small bugs, twigs and other Unappetizing items floated to the surface. These undesirable bits were strained from the tea with a mote skimmer. The handle of the spoon was small, straight, and pointed. It was used to poke the tea leaves from the inside of ; the teapot spout. Small decorat- •ively placed holes in -the bowl of the spoon were used for straining the tea. The eighteenth cen-. turn mote spoon was the size of. a very small teaspoon. A larger type of perforated spoon was used in the nineteenth century to remove berries from their juices and even today many different spoons are made with holes. If you weren't at the flea market at Notre Dame High School in DeKalb, Illinois on Valentine Day, you really missed something. There were eighty two dealers there and really, there were so many beautiful things to see. It was great and I'm looking forward to the next one (March 14th). Will the lady on Beloit Avenue who called me about the "Block .glass" and her Aunt's furniture, please call me again? Anyone having old furniture, glass, jewelry, leaded lamps or hanging shades, etc;, please call us. Your "junque" could be turned into immediate case and may become someone else's treasure.
