CLOSED WEDNESDAY'S AT NOON Car*? about your clothe* iLETTERS to EDITOR Dear Mr. Kaercher: It seems that the young people are being criticized these days but have the adults who are doing the criticizing taken a good look at themselves?? An incident occurred recently which we would like to draw to the attention of the "nearby residents" of the corner of Belolt and Harrison. A child was seriously injured in that area and where were you concerned people at that time? It's not that we expected you to stand there waiting for this to happen but you seemed to notice two cars speeding down the street at 9:45 p.m. when there also could be a little boy dying in your alley or In front of your house. Sure, people saw an injured little boy in an alley but most just stared. One man stopped but didn't want to get involved because he was afraid of getting himself in trouble. It was two "teen agers" who helped this boy. Anonymous Dear Mr. Kaercher: Once you said you would like to see the whole Village of Forest Park work together on a project. How is this for a suggestion? Clean up Forest Park and the environment by a triple campaign to recycle: Newspapers Glass Cans Those who might sponsor or participate In such a program include: Forest Park Review Village of Forest Park Garden Club PTA's Women's Club Park District Kiwanis Chamber of Commerce Veterans Organizations Boy and Girl Scouts All Schools All Churches Businesses Factories Fraternal Organizations Tenant Councils Social Clubs Condomlnlmum Councils and any others who come to mind. Initially, a meeting including volunteers should be held to estab- list the campaign, arrange publicity, volunteers, collection points and boxes and to provide for pick up or delivery of materials gathered. While only a small amount of money can be realized from this sort of salvage campaign, through sale ol newspapers (about 40? per 100 pounds) glass about 1? per pound or item (more If deposit bottles are redeemed which Is ecologically sounder than smash- Ing and remanufacturing) and now cans. These funds could be used for a village beautlflcation program: to pay for collection of materials or could be distributed to Boy and Girl Scouts, PTA's or garden club. As the campaign progresses, it may be necessary to alter some aspect, but basically very few meetings would be necessary. While this is aimed primarily at Clean Up Week, there is really no reason why it cannot be expanded into a year round campaign. I know that your own experience and ability will enable you to put forward a strong and viable program and enlist the support of all villagers In a cleaner environment. Let me know if you would like further help'from me. Regards to your family, in which Leonard Joins me. Very truly yours, Margaret Karlln Dear Editor: . I would like to publicly thank Mr. William McKenzle and members of the Kiwanis Club for their Interest in the children at the Madden Zone Center. Their gracious response to the children's Christmas wishes and their donation of tickets to the circus were deeply appreciated by the children and staff alike. . For these children, whose problems are so great, the personal interest in them by persons like you is often the highlight of their troubled Hves. Again, our personal thanks. Sincerely, Mrs. Dorothy Cowley Madden Intake, Proviso Community Representative LEGAL Notice is hereby given that on April 19, 1971 at 8:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers of the Village Hall, 517 Desplaines Avenue, Forest Park, Illinois, the Zoning Board of Appeals will conduct a Public Hearing on a petition for variations in the Zoning Ordinance of the Village of Forest Park permitting the construction of an addition to the existing building on the following described property: Lots 69 and 70 in Block 103 in Haas Addition to Oak Park in Section 13, Township 39 North, Range 12, East of the „ Third Principal Meridian in Cook County, Illinois arid commonly known as 538 Desplaines Avenue and 7555 Jackson Blvd., Forest Park, Illinois.
