Attend Picnic at Lake WOODHULL — Twenty members and families of the Dependon Sunday School class of the Presbyterian Church held a picnic Sunday at Crescent Lake, preceding church services at 10:30 a.m. emry~ t fa yairwowpii$ Dear Penny, t wrote to yea earlier in the summer about the new collegiate baseball league In Galesburg, urging that the people of the town give them their backing, tt evidently didn't do much good, because the attendance has been terrible, tt's a shame to see these boys get out there and try so hard without anyone to cheer them on, even when they deserve it. People In this town never appreciate anything they have until they've lost It. Then they moan their heads off because it 's gone and blame everybody but them* selves, BASEBALL BOOSTER Dear B.B., The time set for the games this year was most unsatisfactory in my estimation. This is the dinner hour for most families, and it was impossible for many people to attend. It is my understanding that there are to be lights on the field next year, and this should enable many more people to come and be boosters, too. At least give us another chance before you give up on us. Dear Penny, I had a very dear friend whom I admired and trusted. We were closer than many sisters, and I told her many of my problems and things that were very personal. Now, for some unknown reason, she is mad at me and Is telling these personal things to anyone who will listen. I am embarrassed that these things are being told, and I am hurt that she would do this to me. Should I just be quiet and take it, or should I say something to. her? WONDERING Dear Wondering, Talk to her and tell her that just because the friendship has cooled she has no right to tell things that you told her in confidence. That is something that no one with much honor would do, but this should be a lesson to you. From now on, keep your personal business to yourself and you won't be troubled with a situation of this kind. Dear Penny, The city does a lot of talking about keeping our parks clean and litter -free, but I wonder how many of your readers have noticed them lately. They're a mess! The boxes and trash from the fireworks display were still there last week. Lincoln Park has poison ivy growing up half the trees. One day there was an electrical wire hanging to the ground. Now don't get me wrong, I think the parks are great, but let's (park officials, too) keep it that way. Also, could you tell me whatever happened to Moose Tales that used to be in the Register-Mail? CONCERNED Dear Concerned, Galesburg is extremely fortunate to have the recreational facilities of Lake Storey and Lincoln Park, and it is appalling to see how these places are abused. People who maintain nice homes and yards go to the picnic grounds and behave like slobs. The littering ordinance should be so strictly enforced that the knuckleheads are either educated or too broke to get there! To answer your second question, the future of Moose Tales is undecided at this time, but when a decision is reached, I will carry a little note for you here. Thinking of you ... Penny Send your questions to Penny, in care of the Galesburg Register-Mail. Your letter will be answered either in Ibis column or personally.
