"Our staff is receiving numerous calls and inquiries from area residents who do not know that health services are available here on the Southwest Side," said Nancy Cole, 6610 S. Rockwell. Ms. Cole is health chairwoman of the community-based woman's organization, located at 3201 W. 63rd st. "Worse yet, we have received many complaints from citizens who do not realizp that some of their tax dollars are being returned to them by the department of health," she said.

Western Ave. Chgo., Illinois BE 8-9696 - HI 5-5331 Committee members are distressed that community people hold negative attitudes toward the department of health, despite the existence of several local city health services. The WWT .health committee sponsors the department's immunization program, conducted at Qar- quette park fieldhouse the second Thursday of each month In addition, over the past three years the group has convinced the department to provide free school physicals on a year-round basis at Municipal Disease hospital, 31st st. and California. Another city service gained by the committee is women's cancer testing, provided from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday at Senior Citizens Health clinic, 5607 S. Pula- skird. In discussing the kinds of complaints reeived by WWT, a committee member cited two occasions this winter when department of health technicians failed to arrive as scheduled at the fieldhouse to administer inoculations. "We have worked very hard to make the department more responsive to this community," said president Dorothy White, 5815 S. Rockwell, "because we realize the Southwest Side has traditionally been deprived of the kinds of services offered in other neighborhoods. "Unfortunately, though services have been started, some are poorly administered and not well publicized." Except for the publicity provided by WWT, the department has no program for informing local residents of what services are available and where.

With that, the Most Rev. Alfred L. Abramowicz, auxiliary bishop of Chicago, noted that more t h a n $125,000 has been raised in the Chicagoland Crusade of the National Czestochowa Trust appeal to save the Shrine of Our Lady of Czes- tochowa in Doylestown near Philadelphia from impending foreclosure. "The shrine began as a converted barn some 25 years ago, grew magnificently into the present building dedicated in 1966," JBishop Abramowicz said "Until it met with serious financial difficulty that threatens its very existence with a debt of $5,000,000 which must be settled by November, 1978. "The Chicagoland goal of Completes $500,000 will be met successfully," said the Rev. Joseph F. Mytych, archdiocesan coordinator of the Chicago- land crusade, noting the response of Polish American Catholics and other concerned people. The shrine was started by a handful of Pauline monks who had come to the United States from their shrine at Czestochowa in Poland, bring along an authentic replica of a painting of Madonna and Child which has been an object of veneration by pilgrims from all over the world for nearly 600 years. Their first shrine was an unused barn atop Beacon- hill. Fifteen years later the present structure, much in the character of a One basilica, was dedicated with President Johnson deliver-: ing the keynote address. ; The financial plight burdening the shrine came as a result of many reversals, inflation, administrative failure and other factors. » Sunday is set as the target day for the Chicagoland goal of $500,000 to be- reached. ,',, Conducts test David Smeeak, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Smeeak, Mil S.
