LETTERS to EDITOR Dear Mr. Kaercher: As a concerned citizen of the Forest Park community, I'm writing this letter because of an Incident I witnessed last night. I live In the vicinity of Harrison Street and Beloit Avenue which has always been a problem of this town, but within the last year, It has gotten much worse to say the least. Between the hours of 9:45 and 11 p.m., cars race up and down the street; Last night among the many, eight cars pulled out of the park entrance without stopping for the stop sign, two cars abreast raced down the street. Where were the police? About 11:30 p.m. that same night, I walked to that corner and counted thirty-two beer cans lying on that corner. Where were the police again? Many times I have called the police to do something about the noise and harassment the citizens must put up with when they walk by that corner. That corner Is a disgrace to our community. Why hasn't something being done? I think I can almost answer that question, 5 or 10 years ago that same corner was occupied by half of bur police force now. Why are any of these punks not arrested? I want the answer to thatl Right now we are all in an election. I'd back anyone of those candidates who would promise and keep his or her promise to do something - right away! I will write a letter every week to this newspaper until something is'done. If I have to I'll get the people of Beloit Avenue to sign a petition and deliver it to a Village council meeting. I'll continue to write letters, get petitions - anything until something is done! Beloit • Avenue is a very busy street. Many children play at the park and surrounding area. One day soon, one of these kids might be killed. Must we wait till such a tragic accident? Sincerely, Nearby Resident Dear Larry: : I would like to hear from former classmates of mine who knew me at Grant-White School from which I graduated in June 1911. Also classmates at Gar field School. World War I veteran, Legion- aires Marines, Optomlst Club, member of Oak Park and Forest Park Chamber of Commerce of which I. was a member when I had ,a sign shop at 7602 Madison St., Forest Park In the 1940's.i I had a stroke in April 1968. I am getting along pretty good but I am housebound. A visit, phone call or drop me a line would be appreciated. I worked and lived half my life in Forest Park, formerly Harlem. Sincerely Edward H. Lasch P.S. I have been a subscriber of FOREST PARK REVIEW a long time and have bought it at news stands. Eagle Auxiliary Receives Certificate A certificate of appreciation to the Auxiliary, was presented to President Mrs. Ethel Campbell from Aerie President Charles Macdonald In recognition of the co-operation of the Auxiliary in aiding and supporting Eagledom.

Next meeting will be held on Wednesday March 10 at 8:15p.m. due to Penny Social on Thursday March llth. I Marie Sissriak Glass Decoration - There are many ways to decorate glass and there are hundreds of names for the glass decorations but only a few are important. Threading, Lilypad, Prunts and several other terms refer to added "blobs" of glass applied to a shaped piece. It was a popular eighteenth cen- tum method of decoration In America and it was also found on many late nineteenth-century wares. H the glass was bent after it was shaped, the decoration was called Crimping. Every housewife knows how to crimp the edge of a pie shell and this is exactly the same In glass. It Is possible to add colored designs to glassware while it is hot. Colored rods of glass (like strips of spaghetti) are worked into the gather before the piece is shaped. The Loopings and Swirls made by the colored glass are typical of Nallsea and other glassware. There is another type of decoration with colored pieces of glass that Is seen In paperweights. Accurately enough, It was named.Paperweight Decoration. Engraved glass is cut with a copper wheel or a diamond point. A bit of glass is actually removed when glass Is engraved. Etching is an acid process used to frost an area, tt ms popular in the late 1800's. Instant Expert Tip - To test the age of engraving on glass, place a white handkerchief on the inside. If the engraving Is old, the lines will usually show up darker than the rest of the glass. New engraving has a bright powderlike surface. Cut glass was made by literally cutting away some of the glass. Sections of a heavy, usually clear glass were removed with a cutting wheel. Simple cutting was used during the eighteenth century but most of thebrilliant cut glass was made In tbe 1880's. (There are several beautiful pieces from the "brilliant period" in our shop at this time.) Glass could bepalntedwlthade- sign and heated so that the color was permanent. This was called Enameling. We have samples of all these different types of decorations at this time but most of them may be gone by the time this article is printed. Anyone wanting to see any or all of these different decorations, feel free to stop in and browse and ask questions. We will be having a "crazy sale" in our shop starting at Noon Thursday, lasting through Saturday. Prices will be unheard of. We need to make room for an estate we will be buying soon. See you on Thursday - or before. m . -RELIGION ill AMERICAN LIFE Worship this week
