Books on Crime at The Library Crime -and the threat of crime is probably one of the most critical problems facing the country today. Many books are being issued on its many facets. A number of these are available at the Forest Park Public Library and are in steady demand. . One of the most outstanding ones is CRIME IN AMERICA by Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General who spellsoutthe •facts of the problem and proposes specific measures that must be" taken if we are -to banish the major causes of crime ... the only difficulty is so far we have been content to talk and not act in a responsible mariner. We have been unwilling to meet the costs involved In creating a better society and a better trained security force on all levels. Other books of general interest on crim Include The Honest Politician's Guide td Crime Control by Morris; Theft of the Nation (organized crime) by Cressey; Crime In the Suburbs by L6th; and L'rime in America by Ostermann. The role of the police is a special one and has been discussed in such books as The Big Blue Lim> by Gray; The Democratic Po'Uct'inan by Berkley; Scotland Yard by Laurie; Cop by Whittle- nif.re. Also a number of accounts of the FBI may be had. To Walk .the Streets Safely by Scheur treats the problem from yet another angle. What precautions can the ordinary citizen take to avoid being the victim of criminal acts? Two recent books go into' this quite fully. How to Pjotect Yourself from Burglars by Barnes reports what an es- house-breaker says. He has a lot to say about locks. Another one is Hair's jto'w'to Protect Yourself Today which deals with locks, security measures to be taken, self-defense and con games to watch out for as well as measures against frauds, street crimes _and other horrendous possibilities, Whether it's S/eet....

SNOW PLOWING Reasonable Rates TOM MOHR Service Station 7400 HARRISON ST. American Cancer Society 1971 Crusade Tony Bale, 936 Hannah, residential chairman for the 1971 American Cancer Society Drive in Forest Park, studies the area organization chart as explained by' Stanley Sarwark, General Chairman. i Can a person protect himself against cancer?The American Cancer Society says "yes". That is one of the purposes of the annual educational and fun-raising drive In April. "We're out to tell people that it's what they don't know about cancer that can hurt them. We mean to instruct them in personal ways of protecting themselves against cancer".says Mr. Tony Baje, American Cancer Society's 1971 Crusade chairman for Forest Park. "With the discovery and use of the "pap" test, a simple painless examination which detects cancer in the early stages so that it can be cured, there is no reason that a woman should tlie of cervical cancer." "It is little wonder that so many are 'dying of cancer when you realize that only 13% of the American male population have a complete physical examination every year. In Forest Park alone over 3,800 people will eventually develop cancer and more than 2,300 will eventually die of this dread disease." Mr. Bale has been in business with his father for ten years, operating Homer's Restaurant, 743Q Madison, Forest Park. Prior tothat time, Mr. Bale attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated from there in 1961 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Forest Park Chamber of Commerce and is an active member of St. Bernardino's Catholic Church in Forest Park. Tony, his wife Jane, and children Michele 3 1/2 and Jennifer 2 1/2, live at 946 Hannah Ave., Forest lark. "What is really exciting," says Mr. Bale, "is that we hope to wipe out cancer in our lifetime. That's the slogan for this year. Won't it be great to put cancer in the same category with polio? But before this hope can be made a reality, we have to get a lot of work done." "We have a triple aim this April. First we want to encourage every member of the community to have a complete physical examination every year, including "pap" test (for women) and "procto" an examination for common cancer of the bowel. This is the best kind of cancer insurance you can buy," continued Mr. Bale, " and you should not think you are a sissy just because you have a checkup every year," he said. f'The second aim of our April drive will be to educate people to the Seven Warning Signs of Cancer: Change in bowel or bladder habits A Sore that does not heal Unusual bleeding or discharge Thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere Indigestion or difficulty In swallowing Obvious change in wart .or mole Nagging cough or hoarseness We will also be coaxing individuals away from activities which are known to cause cancer , . over-exposure to the sun and cigarette smoking." "Our third aim is to raise mflney for the Research programs of the American Cancer Society. Thus far the Society has Invested over $200,000,000 in research. It supports over five hundred research projects in more than one hundred twenty five colleges, universities and institutes. H's startling to realize that on the average the American spends more money on dog food than on cancer control. Last year over $15,000,000 worth ofpromising research was abandoned due to Insufficient funds." "Many ask why the American Cancer Society does not go in with the Crusade of Mercy. The answer .... the American Cancer Society is a temporary health organization and when the cure for cancer is found, it will disband. Beyond that, the Society looks upon its April Crusade as a great opportunity to educate people to cancer control. It is also interesting to note that only eight per cent of every dollar collected goes for management cost, the rest goes to our programs of Research, Education and Service." Mr. Bale is well under way in organizing the Crusade. He has appointed two area chairmen who will assist him in recruiting other volunteers. Mr. J. Crowley of 446 Thomas Avenue is coordinating the activity north of the Eisenhower expressway. Anyone who is Interested in participating in that area should call 366-0100 Mr. Roy H. Mohr, 7340 Harrison is area chairman for the south section of Forest Park. Interested volunteers can reach him at 366-2900 ByS.flySh«w A DEAR SALLY: I'm a girl of 16 and a sophomore In high school. My big problem is that I'm in love with my math teacher, a dreamy, unattached male. I get butterflies inside me whenever I see him, and sitting through one of'his classes is torture for me because I can feel myself blushing whenever he looks atmeandl stutter and stammer whenever he calls on meto answer someques- tion. Please, I need advice! GOT IT BAD. DEAR GOT IT: What you're suffering is infatuation, not love a feeling not at all uncommon among girls of your age towards some of their male teachers . and which eventually wears off. Try to keep your eyes on your notes and math book, concentrate on friends of your own age, and by the end of-the year your "dreamy" math teacher will probably look like an old man to you. DEAR SALLY: My bride is a very accomplished cook. The big trouble is that she cooks the most fattening kinds of foods - spaghetti and meat balls, creamed potatoes, fried chicken, loads of pies and cakes . . in fact all the high calorie things. All my life I've had to wage a constant battle against overweight and now I'm afraid that my new wife is going to make me abigloserwith this rich diet she's forcing onme. I tried to'hint to her about the kind of dishes she serves but had to back off real fast when I saw she was offended. So .. what to do? WEIGHTY PROBLEM. DEAR WEIGHTY: The meals your wife is turning out may, of course, be high in calorie count but it's strictly up to you how MUCH you eat . . and how much physical exercise you take in between meals to burn off the excess calories. Be happythatyour wife is such an . accomplished cook, but depend on your own willpower. DEAR SALLY: My husband has an exceedingly annoying habit. Although otherwise he is a good man, kind and devoted to me, he still invests in some of these girlie magazines with pictures of undraped females on their pages and these lie around the house and provoke much comment on the part of any guests we might have. I've told him how this embarrasses me, but he just laughs me off and accuses me of "prudity." Do you have any comments . . and a solution? BURNED. DEAR BURNED: To risk a pun, seems -you have a "broadminded" husband. One suggestion which just might work - buy a few copies o/those magazines which feature pictures of undraped muscle-men, and let them lie around .the house. His reaction • could be interesting. DEAR SALLY: How can a girl, in a nice way, ward off "undesirable" passes by some of her dates . , things that are decidedly against her princlples?Some of the fellows I date, otherwise very nice guys, tend to get a little "obstreperous" sometimes if you know what I mean. NEED ADVICE. DEAR NEED:' Tell them that you like them and enjoy their company but that if your friendship with them depends upon your compliance with what they seem to be aiming at, the friendship Isn't worth much . . that the things they are interested in are reserved until your "no" can be changed into an "I do".
