Hi 20L<fcrftsbura „, , feiday,, July 27,, 1973 Dear Penny, I remember the time when the air was almost free of totse p *ltatt*. N*w«tay» you can heir motorcycles go by *ttk ettrageou notee, causing disturbance and raising the Wood prefmre of many law -abiding citizens who can do •©thing abwrt it. : Motorcycles are a nalsance. II they have to be en our roads, lyet them not be heard. There are on the market a Variety of mufflers that can cut exhanst noise to a whisper. There are many problems to he taken care of In oar country, and noise la one of them. We have a tendency to he Into In Oor .actions> hot W should think about noise polio- tWiiiBo'if before It gets to be more of a problem. It can. be done . ,. . we 'how have a - n©4>urnliig, rule, > and -yon no longer 'have to ait In-your yard and smell your neighbor's garbage smoldering. We want quiet air.. We prefer, to hear - birds . . .not motorcycles. Love Peace Dear Love, Noise is coming to be a problem, and it all goes back to a matter of consideration for others. It isn't just motorcycles that are the offenders, either. How about transistor and car radios that are turned up to earsplitting while their semi-deaf owners cruise around in seem-, mgly ^abliyion?.How.about cars with noisy mufflers? How about] power Idwiimowers at the crack of dawn on Sunday, morning? If•' people would have just a little consideration for the, feelings of others! pollution—and lots of other problems—would | be lessened. Dear Penny, As student drivers, my friends and I have become aware of the need to Mm bushes or,lower the ground level so it WoUId^be easier to see ! arid a little bit safer for those just beginning to drive and any other careful driver. For example, we, have noticed in our trips around town the following hazardous places: WUlard ahd 'Losey, Beecher and Losey, Florence and Losey, Seminary and Grove, Greenleaf and.' Florence, Grove and / Broad and Tompkins and Henderson, just)to name a few. 1 c .. We hope this might 1 help the situation and other drivers.

Bowen •-, Janet Soper 'j" Anita Kakuk Melanie Marlow % v Deiar Student^ t Your suggestion is a valid and thoughtful one. I hope it) helps, too. 6- s Dear Penny, We were recently ready to set out on a family outing when my husband checked to make sure he had his wallet and found it was gone. We knew it had either been left on the counter at Pete's Red and White Store on North Seminary, or else it had slipped out of his pocket and was gone. . Needless, to; say, we stayed home from our family outing, but the next day we were happy to find that one of the check-out girls had found it lying- on the counter. and 'had put it in the cash: register. It still contained $80 £ in cash as well as Ms papers. We would like to take this way of thanking the girl as we do not know her name, and she was not there the next morning. , . Mrs. Earl Holcomb 580 E. Losey St. Dear Mrs. Holcomb, , This.column is always glad to;give someone a pat on\the back for a good act, but I'm sure the store could furnish you] with the girl's name if you would like to write; her a personal note, expressing your thanks. PERSONAL: Some time ago, a letter appeared in this column from a woman who wanted a ride to the state penal farm! I filed it away very carefully—so carefully I cannot now find it. I have had a letter from a woman who makes the trip and would like to get in touch with her. If she will send me .her name and phone number, I'll exchange the information. ^^;.'^,Thu^g' , bf you':.-.':: . % Knox County # s ; 120th Annual Fair ^ Being Wtld Tues., July 31 thru Sun., Aug. 5 KNOX COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS KNOXVIttl, ILLINOIS f # Livestock, Poultry j£: & Agricultural Exhibits •Tractor Pull Contests • Races * Stage Shows • Rides for Everyone $#• You At the Fair'• . .
