and the people's public apathy and Mrs John Public a v e a somewhat different viewpoint And a few who might even admit that the as Austin district Cmdr Mark Thanasouras so aptly put it civic could be true have a ready answer Don't use my name ic one West-Northwest Sider said but I'll tell you why I wouldn't get involved A friend of mine witnessed a crime Pointed the guy out to police My friend had to go to court so many times when the case kept being continued that jl his boss finally told him to get or get fired For the most part people of the area are quick to praise the work of police of the Austin Shakespeare and Fillmore dis- and hold souras William McNulty and George Sims in high regard Police protection and crime detection are there is of it Probably the main com- it can be labeled a by zens There just aren't enough cops However Mr and Mrs John Q Public are not alone in that From ent James on down police officials agree that more officers are needed But getting them is another matter Some say the ards required by the Chicago Police department are too stringent that age limits and height and weight ments should be altered However it is commonly at- tested to that Chicago is ting quality if not quantity policemen by sticking strictly to the letter Then there is the matter of salary Many young men ing full well that others of their age command and get pay checks totaling an additional and a year may think twice before embarking on a career with a starting ary of less than Recent court rulings too have an adverse effect on men who might consider the ment as their vocation Mrs Walter McCaffrey of the Town Hall bly and a long time area dent pinpointed it when she said Why would anyone want to go into a achievements field where would be his for nothing because of loopholes in the laws some smart attorney might find Our police are doing a wonderful she went on T Precious Dolls Shown at Library The Logan Square branch of the Chicago Public library 3255 Altgeld

ment are quite unique Among the dolls is one that is for a little girl on her birthday To Japanese children dolls called yo are usually objects of reverence Today Japanese dolls are used largely for

a pity their bands are tied so many times and that they have to do their job with such a shortage of manpower She also had praise for the community service officer grams These officers such as Austin's Sgt Arthur Ferando do a great job in making the people aware of the problems and workings of the police de- Echoing the plaudits for finest was Holmes chairman of the Organization for a Better Austin's Real tate Practices committee and a West Side resident Its the finest police ment in the Holmes said But all their efforts are wasted if the citizenry is not 100 per cent behind them People say they want and their taxes pay the policeman's salary But that is not enough People must get in- They must give a little too if they expect the kind of police protection they Holmes concluded The CTA fare in- crease that went into effect Sunday seemed to meet with acceptance although somewhat reluctant among Northwest Siders While most persons inter- viewed in a random telephone survey did not like the in- crease few could offer any I drive a car but my wife uses the said J Sernchuk 2740 Cortez She says it is too nickel for the transfer now a nickel raise But then everything is more expensive Miss Karen Sorensen 19 2246 N Kildare a Loop tary who uses CTA tion daily said she was not prised by the increase as she had heard rumors of one some time back But I don't like she said I wish I had a joked Vincent Savarino at zens National bank of Chicago 5200 Chicago Now I know why Europeans ride them so much The raise in fares does not affect Savarino as much as ers since he drives his own car most of the time he said The raise doesn't bother me as much as the method by which it was he said There was no discussion of it in advance Even when they raised the price for parking meters there was prior sion Something is lost when we are unable to talk over publicly such important problems as those affecting our mass trans- port I think it should have been handled differently Mrs John T Hughes 1229 N Monitor also was not very pleased about the increase We are retired she explained and sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the increases Everything is going up We don't drive and must use the CTA I think the raise is too steep and can be a ship to some working people Mrs Ernest Voigtlander 411 N Leamington considered the increase too much She said she used rhe el to go to Oak Park more than anywhere else thus will have to pay the extra fare for suburban trips Gene Conway at the National Bank ol Austin said he would a state subsidy for the CTA to an increase in fares even though he rarely uses public transportation Transportation is of great he said and gested that a part of gasoline taxes or some other tax source could be used to aid public mass transportation Edward G Van de Ven stated that he was not familiar with the problems that necessitated the fare increase and hesitated to comment on them But we are getting more for our money on the Lake st el than we used he said There has been a lot of ress in recent years The new fare is 30 cents with an additional 10 cents charged for travel to the western sub- urbs Many felt with Van de Ven that the higher fare for the longer trip is merited and that is not unfair to charge more for a trip from the Loop to a point outside the city than for a trip on the same line within the city Paradoxically it means that residents of Austin will pay more for a relatively short trip to Oak Park than to the Loop but most use CTA tion within the city more than they do to the suburbs and little objection to the added fee Safe Crackers Batting 500 Safe crackers evidently not experts at their trade got a lot of exercise and frustration but no loot at the office of the eral Finance Loan Co 4048
