ICnmtiiiiisl Newspapers. Wcdncsddj. Mardi 2.1. 1!)77 CSH Hagu 7 Pucinski wants X-way funds to repair streets Aid. Roman Pucinski has called on Mayor Bilandic to pour $100 million into an emergency program of rebuilding the city's streets and curbs. Pucincki proposed that the money be diverted from the commitment Bilandic has made to the construction of the south leg of the Crosstown expressway. "The severe winter has made our streets disaster areas," Pucinski said. "We can start on rebuilding our city by first rebuilding our streets." ^ Pucinski, Democratic candidate for mayor, made his remarks at a Hanson Park Kiwanis club program. "People tend to forget that if we proceed with the mayor's proposal for building the south leg of the Crosstown, the city must put up more than $100 million of local matching funds for the 90 per cent which will come from the federal government," he said. Eyesores being removed free Homeowners are being urged by Mayor Bilandic to take advantage of the city's free program to remove dilapidated garages and sheds as a way of sprucing up neighborhoods before spring. Interested property owners are asked to call 7443420 to request a consent form. After a signed consent is returned to the city, the department of buildings will send an inspector to the site to photograph the deteriorated structure. The garage or shed will then be removed by a crew from the department of streets and sanitation. The entire process can be accomplished within 30 days, depending on the backlog of requests. Joseph F. Fitzgerald, bui- dling commissioner, said that in order to qualify for the program, structures must be located on the alley line so that they are accessible to to wrecking crews. Since June 17, 1975, when the program began, the city has removed 3,700 garages and sheds which had deteriorated past the point of usefulness and were eyesores in their neighborhood.

Pucinski challenged Bilandic's statement that the Crosstown would produce jobs for Chicagoans. "Our experience with the Stevenson, the Kennedy and the Dan Ryan shows us that 80 per cent of the jobs on those three projects went to suburbanites and out-of- town help imported into Chicago," Pucinski said.' "Let Bilandic tells us how he intends to assure that the jobs will go only to Chicagoans when 90 per cent of the project is financed by the federal government." Pucinski said Bilandic's announcement that he will have extra crews repairing streets by April 4 is "another Bilandic band-aid approach to a problem that needs major surgery."

Illinois 60643 881-2200 Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation St. Rita briefs The St. Rita activities program has more clubs and organizations than at any time in th'e past 15 years,according to a survey by the school newspaper. The Ritan sited various examples of the all-time high growth of activities at St. Rita. "The Knights of Augustine have increased their membership every year, the Walk-a-thon and the Candy drive were the most successful ever, and" intramural boxing is packing the gym," said moderator Don Racky. New organizations have also been formed under the leadership of the school's activities director, the Rev. Dominic Caniglia. Included are the Stamp and Coin club, the Aviation club and the Student Broadcasting society. Also among the new clubs and organizations under FT. Caniglia are "hockey marathons, film festivals and an eighth-graders day at St. Rita." While some clubs and efforts can be "partially blamed on dwindling enrollment," the success of this years' activities at St. Rita are a valid argument that enrollment has not affected the program at the school," according to Racky.
