Dear Penny, It has recently occurred to me that the people of Galesburg would enjoy having a small-scale "Farmers' Market" perhaps operated by teen-agers somewhere around the Public Square vicinity. Many of us miss Wilkins Market, where We used to go for our fresh fruits and vegetables in the summertime. This could be held once or twice a week,, and it would give our youngsters an incentive to help in the family garden or even plant a bigger garden to earn extra money. Just Thinking Dear Just, . The idea is a good one, but I do differ on the location. The downtown area— especially around the Public Square—would be a poor place for such an enterprise from a traffic stand point. I agree that many persons miss the fun of going to an outdoor market to pick out their own fruit and vegetables, and your Idea may set someone out on a new project. Dear Penny, I read with great Interest the article printed in the Register-Mail concerning withholding report cards because book rental was not paid in full. This lady writes the pure truth. It IS being done. This is unfair, and there could be very good reason the fee wasn't paid. It took me two years to pay book rental once. Why? Because my husband was injured in a truck accident and unable to work, my son was very ill and required extensive hospital care, and we had four children in school. No one withheld their report cards. Thank someone for dedicated teachers like the late Paul Johnson. He he'ped children dream of great things, rich or poor, green, pink, black or white .... and reports were given. A Mad Grandmother Dear Mad, The solution is very simple. If enough parents would get together, go to the school board meeting and state their case reasonably and calmly, I feel certain a policy would be established against withholding a child 's report card because of his parents' failure to pay fees. Dear Penny, I participated in the Walk for Mankind recently. We walked from Knoxville to Abingdon. The sandwich I'd packed was spoiled by lunchtime, so at the end of the walk, I was hot, tired, sunburned and very hungry. I checked In at 2:40 p. m., and since I had had nothing to eat, I asked one of the helpers if I could go uptown, get a sandwich and bring it back to eat it. I explained all of my predicament to her. She said it was most unfortunate, but the workers ALL • wanted to go home. Since It was supposed to end at 3:30, I had 50 minutes. After all that walking, it looks like they could appreciate us a little more than cookies and orange drink. I raised $40, wore out my feet, sunburned my body, starved, and all I god is aching feet, a crumpled stomach, a certificate and "Thanks, come again next year." I went of my own free will. Is this thanks? Phantom Walker Dear Walker, Every project needs organization, and I can understand why the workers would not want to be responsible for rounding up kids who had scattered all over town. While you may have been mildly uncomfortable, I doubt that you were in any imminent danger of starving because your lunch was a couple hours late. Anytime you volunteer to do something for someone else, you should be willing to do it with a giving spirit and not an attitude that you are to be paid back measure for measure. If you can 't make the walk the next time with that attitude, you may want to reconsider and stay home under the shade of the old apple tree II Thinking of you . . . Penny to a in March, confessed to two Confessed Killer CHICAGO (UPI) - Matthew Brozozowski walked up pair of policemen 1972, and killings.
