20 Galesburg Register-Mail, (jolesburg, 111. Wednesday, June 6 t 1973 entry 3 „ forpurmoughtjM Dear Penny, No Burlington Northern tracks cross the cemetery road. Please don't flood Mr. Rungs' desk with unnecessary mail. Three times in the past lew months, The Register-Mail has printed Burlington Northern when it should have been Santa Fe. Reporters' jobs are to get the news and report it correctly, so please check out your trains and tracks. Santa. , Fe runs through Galesburg, too. Most factories locate near or on railroad tracks to move their products. So "Waiting on a Train" should find other employment or he should be thankful that he is able to drive a car and work in a factory. Also he can enjoy the beauty of nature since he's got to wait. People that write their complaints to you should first write down their blessings. Blessed So Very Much Dear Blessed, Thank you for straightening mc out on (he tracks on the cemeterv road. I must admit that unless I look at a map showing the main line and following it, I do get mixed up about which track belongs to which line. I agree that we should all count our blessings from time to time. However, I do not agree that one must be a Pollyanna and take whatever comes our way without complaint. That theory would work fine if everyone followed it, but you can be darned sure that there are other people complaining—and getting action on their gripes. Railroads have been beneficial to Galesburg and its growth. They do transport goods which are used by the public. You can also be very sure that stockholders benefit, or the lines wouldn't stay in business. Everyone who invests money deserves a profit, and there is no quarrel with that. On the other hand, any business—railroads included—need to know what the consumer thinks of that business and how they can improve their public image. On the strength of that, I see nothing wrong with residents of this or any other area letting public relations men of the Burlington Northern and the Santa Fe know what the railroad's image is. Public relations men are paid to build a good public image for a firm and to handle expressions of opinion from the public. Dear Penny, Within the past few weeks there was an interview on the radio with the manager of a local theater. He gave some of his reasons for carrying so many X-rated movies. He said that a showing of "Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion" brought eight people to the theater one night, while "The Cheerleaders" packed it. I took my son to see "Cinderella" during the Easter holiday, and there was quite an audience. Maybe this shows there is still a demand for some of the Walt Disney shows. It was the first time my son had been to a movie, and I know he would enjoy going again. Could you find out if any Galesburg theater plans to show any more of this type of movie? A Mother Dear Mother,, Family-type movies come to most theaters from time to time, and especially on the holidays when children, have time off from school. I'm sure if you will watch the listings, you will find a movie to your liking eventually. Dear Penny, We were talking about the Penny column the other day, and we are curious about something. How many persons have written the column in the years it has appeared in the Register-Mail? Curious Dear Curious, Except for one brief period when the boys got things all mixed up, just me.
