Of Chicago , CHICAGO (Wl )-th6 Chicago li North Wester n Railway called jt quits today on passenger service between here and the MJn< , nesota cities of St. Paul and Man* .kato. Curtailment of passenger serv ice between the points ends a bat . tie started in 1961. That was when . the carrier said it lost $8.6 mil . lion in the preceding (our years The Interstate Commerce Com >.mission held hearings, then or dered the railroad to continue service for one year. It did 30, and the loss increased from $2.3 million in 1961 to $2.4 million in 1962. Monday, the ICC granted the carrier's request. It applies to two trains Operating between Chicago and St. Paul and two trains operating between Chicago and Mankato. ; The decision stated that the public had made substantial use of the trains "but there has been an over-all downward trend in operating revenues and revenue passengers." The road promptly served a one-day death notice. YMC A Schedules Second Summer Day Camp The second week of day camp during summer will be held at Lake Storey Aug. 5 to 9, it was announced today.

Little League baseball teama were organised for good, clean competition and fun where yottng hoya cbnhf learn good aporta< fnanahip, how to get along with others, and nerhana for the first time, how to work hard for something worthwhile. How can boys learn theae things when mothers get hysterical because their hoy la not allowed to he the star, then the fathers badger the coaches who are giving so much to teach the hoys these lessons. When will parent! let these hoys learn about real life—that yon have to work to get what yon want? Let the boys play neighborhood baseball If they can't take the competition. AN IRRITATED READER Dear Irritated Reader, I agree with you completely. I believe that there are things about Little League baseball which may not be beneficial to every boy, but that is each parent's decision. If a parent decided that Little League is for their boy, they should turn him over to the coaches, cheer for the team, sell tickets to the ice cream social; but leave the rest of it to the boys and their mentors. Dear Penny, Boy, you sure helped me out! My wife wrote to you last week and signed herself "Shopper 's Wife." She complained that I am always admiring other, women and you told her not to pay any attention because I chose her to marry. When I married my wife, she was a very attractive girl. She still is attractive, but she has lost all interest in her personal appearance. She wears clothes that would look too old on her mother, and her hair is never done any way other than pulled back and fastened with anything that's handy. Subtly, I have called her attention to women who are well-dressed and carefully groomed, hoping she would take the hint. Now you come along and tell her to take it with a grain of salt! Thanks a bunch! SUBTLE SAM Dear Subtle Sam, I'm sorry as all get out! I guess maybe you were just so subtle that neither your wife nor I recognized it. Maybe you should try the direct approach for a change. Offer to take your wife downtown to select a new outfit and give her your ideas on what she will look best wearing. Then offer to baby-sit while she visits the beauty par- or. It isn't always easy to be a homemaker and mother and still look like a refugee from a fashion magazine, but I'll bet she'll be happy to give it a try. Dear Penny, We have another couple with whom we are friendly, and the husband and I seem to be interested in many of the same things. We both like to dance and bowl and we often have interesting discussions. Last week he sent me a dozen long-stemmed roses with a card which read, "Just for being so nice." I took it merely as a friendly gesture, but my husband just hit the ceiling. He s»ys we're going to discontinue our friendship with this couple and I think he's being childish. Don't you think and a woman can be good friends without anything else being involved? ROSE O'DAY Dear Rose, Certainly I think a man and a woman can be good friends. I am also of the opinion that when a man is in a rose-sending mood, those roses should first go to that washes his socks and cooks his meals. If this boy gets in a rose-sending mood just because you're "nice," maybe you'd better try being nasty for a while. Thinking of you . . .

CORE Leader Opposes Demonstrations CHICAGO (UPD-The leader of Chicago's sit-in demonstrators has offered to resign because he thinks there has been too much picketing and not enough negotiating in the city's civil rights campaign. The decision of Sam Riley, chairman of the Chicago chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality, was revealed as CORE called a temporary halt to sit-ins against the city's school system. A newspaper, Chicago's American, quoted Riley' as saying "I'm sick of sit-ins and picket lines. I prefer to plan and to negotiate." Riley was quoted as objecting to "the ultra-militant tactics of the kids" who took part in an eight-day sit-in at the offices of the Chicago Board of Education. The sit-in ended last week when police hauled the demonstrators away. It was resumed Monday, but was called off when Riley won a promise from the board president, Clair Roddewig, to negotiate. ' A person high in the councils of CORE told United Press International that Riley, who is also a veteran labor negotiator, was concerned over "how fast you can go and consolidate your group. He feels a certain pace is warranted." "His attitude may be different from the reaction of other people who have just, barely started in this movement and have not been devoting their time day and night as he has," the CORE leader said. The CORE leader said Riley had not officially offered his resignation to the CORE membership and might be persuaded to change his mind.
