The following short quiz determines whether the non- alcholic needs the type of help offered by Al-Anon: 1. Are you worred about the alcoholic's drinking when he is away from home? 2. Is it difficult for you to believe alcholism is an illness? 3. Dp you blame yourself because he is an alcoholic? 4. Did you ever pour liquor down the sink or hide Ills money to make him stop drinking? Those who answer "yes" to one or more questions will probably benefit from the Al-Anon program, the group said. The group, which meets weekly, is based on discussions, literature and self-help guidelines. • There is no admission charge. For information concerning the local group call 848-2707.

Ehringer,] Director phone 366-2200 Find the strength for your life... Above, Dan Bright explains to the boys the importance of the hinge- bottom floor. These houses are for. SPARROWS only. You don't have to have a lot of time to spare - but a little helps. You don't have to have your own children - others will do. You don't have to share a lot of love - but a little goes a long way. This is the motto of DAN BRIGHT, 7647 Monroe Street. He hasn't much time, no children of his own, but a lot of love for all of them. Dan has worked with some of our community children on a birdhouse project and although it is for the birds, we all know better. It is a project for the wellfare of birds as well as people. As we all know, birds eat Insects and therefore we can eliminate pesticides. And if we can eliminate pesticides, we can eliminate pollution. But there is more to this than the bird can see. If we have projects for children, we keep them off the street. And if we can keep the children off the street, we know they are busy doing something. . And - if children are busy doing something, they must be learning something - and this is just what Dan Bright had in mind - that something. That SOMETHING has now become various types of houses, that Dan designed. There Is the bungelow, conventional and the A-frame. They are also designed with an easy-cleaning, hinge-bottom floor. Dan and the boys are using scrap lumber and crates. They have learned to use tools, read blueprints.and master a skill; but more than that, the boys love It and are happy. Who knows, maybe some of them will choose the trade of a roofer because the birdhouses even have a roof decked with roofing paper. Our hats off to a man that shares his love and enriches the life of children but more than that, keeps them busy with a worthwhile project that boys don't forget. Avove the "Building Crew" of birdhouses. Left to right: Dan Thiesse, Tom Kelm, Charles Sahly, Dan Bright, Mike Sahly, Tom Malone, Joey Malone and Vince Malone.
