Although I am not a home owner in the area of Harlem and Lexington, I do live on Marengo Ave. The people who have already written about this problem really know what they are talking about. I back them up 100%. I have seen Lexington blocked up from Harlem Avenue to across Circle. Also the 900 block on Marengo Ave., all the way from Lexington to Harvard. Cars were even lining up on Lexington across Harlem Avenue on the Oak Park side waiting to get their cars washed. I am not against anyone owning their own business or making a living but 'when a business such as this is given a license without much consideration to what Inconvlences and accidents it may cause, something should be done about it. It has been quiet on that corner the past few weeks, I will admit that, but is this problem really solved? Did the town's leaders really hear the pleas of the people? Or, is this the "Quiet before the Storm?" Spring is here and so is Election time. Someone wrote to you of another problem in town. That person said, how this problem is solved will have an Influence on how they wtU vote In April. I will not go as far as to say that but what is the reason for it being so calm on that corner all of a sudden? Has this situation been really cleared up? Lit's face it people, again I say Spring is here. That means more cars out on the streets and more children.playing outdoors. Why should Council Meetings be attended and petitions be signed? Everyone knows this is a serious problem. Do we have to wait for more accidents to happen as we did to get a stop sign on the corner of Lexington and Marengo Avenue? I'm sure nothing would please the citizens of Forest Park more than to read in your paper that the problem of this "Car Wash" is solved permanently. Mrs. Lu Pecoraro Dear Editor: As chairman for the village of Forest Park, I would appreciate the attached being placed in the "Letters to the Editor " column. Thank you. Tony Bale Once upon a time, there was a country called Ecalpyna. Like all countries, in all times, Ecalpyna had many, problems. The one problem which troubled the people most was Recnac. You see, Recnac was afierce monster who killed and disfigured many Ecalpynltes every year.,He attacked his victims one by one, so there was not the great outpouring.of public sympathy as in a storm, or plague, or earthquake. Recnac did not even spare children, killing or crippling more of them than any epidemic or natural disaster. So terror-stricken were the folk of Ecalpyna that many would npt even speak of the monster, pretending he did not exist. And so, Recnac kept on killing and maiming. The great tragedy of Ecalpyna was that half of Recnac's victims could have been saved had they only known more about nlm. But each one who could even bring himself to think about the monster said to himself, "The fierce one will never overtake me for I can run faster." A few wise men and women, however, watched the monster at a cautious distance. They studied his habits, examined his victims and learned his- strength and his weakness. They called others to their cause and together they led a great .crusade against Recnac. With courage born of the nobleness of their purpose . .. and hope in their hearts, they met Recnac and they conquered him. Ecalpyna spelled backward is Anyplace ... Recnac is Cancer. .. and You are the wise men and women. When the American Cancer Society Crusader comes to your door, remember, he wants to give you something; it may very well be your life. He' also wants to solicit your support for the programs of the American Cancer Society. Please give.
