NI-Gas Urges Indentification To prevent unauthorized persons posing as company representatives from entering homes, George Habenicht, Northern Illinois Gas Company's senior vice president, urges customers to ask callers for employee identifation cards. Habenicht said all NI-Gas em- ployes are issued identification cards that display their photos & signatures. "Just knowing the purpose of a home call is not a safecheck," he said. "A NI-Gas representative might call unannounced for one of several reasons -for example, to read or exchange a meter or to repair or renew service. However, if a visitor calls unannounced to check ap- pllcances and says he works for NI-Gas, a homeowner should be cautious. Company employees make such calls only on request. Also, a homeowner should not accept the statement that bills are being collected unless he knows his payments _ have been delinquent. "The identification card is the best safeguard," he said. "If a caller does not have one of if a customer Is unconvinced, he should call the nearest NI-Gas office for verification."

FOREST PARK 366-1100 School Board News The regular February meeting was held at the Field-Stevenson School. Prior to the business meeting the Field-Stevenson .Teachers presented a slide program which depicted a typical school day. After the call-to-order by President Charles Marlnier, Mr. Robert Nelson, Vice-Chairman of the Advisory Council, reported that the Advisory Council is in full-swing. All the members have been appointed to work in eight committees. These committees represent the areas of concern for both the community and the school Board. The committees are nlcro-fllm, 12 month school year, School Board policy, public relations, finance, buildings and grounds, and school management and curriculum. Mr. William Markward was again apixiinted as the Supervisor of the School Board Election which will be held Saturday, April 10, 1971. Mr. -Lawrence Buckley, Chairman of tlie Board Finance Committee, announced reluctantly that it will be necessary for the Forest Park Schools to Issue tax anticipation warrants. If tax col- Inctions should come earlier, then tli" ;uiiount of interest would bo reduced; Mr. Buckley went on to explain that there are several reasons why the issuance of warrants is necessary. In years past a school district could make arrangements with the Township Collector to borrow from anticipated income. Since the abolishment of the Township Collector's Office this is no longer possible. Along with this, last fall's collections by the County office are only 80% complete and the delinquency rate has raised 20%. .Mr. Buckley also statedthat thru the news media he was sure that everyone was aware of the fact that the spring tax bills will not be issued by the County office until after the elections in April. This means that the secohd'colr lection qf funds normally available In March will now not-be available to the Township schools until June or July. After a reijort bv Principals. Mr. Arthur Jones and Mr. Win.' Crpwl, regal (liiiR a summer school program the Board of Education agreed that the application be submitted to the Federal Government for funds as stated in a Title 1 program. . Further Information will follow when all plans have been completed. The next regular meeting will be Thursday, March 11, 1971, at 8;OQ p.m. in the Forest Park Middle School. ,
