FORREST IN A RECENT TALK on the rudiments and instances of Fifth Ward Alderman Leon Despres is seeking federal intervention against con- struction of a high rise in Woodlawn, which is con- trary to model city plans al- ready envisioned for the area.

Mrs. Robert light, already has the support and endorsement of a State Senator, a candidate for State Representative, Bond, 7211 Michigan, chairman :everal Democratic organization key persons, as well as various members of Chicago's black medias. EVEN WHILE national party figures were staggering "rom the sudden political karate chop, and scurrying around to seek a replacement, should the president's lecision be for real, local political pundits almost immediately agreed that Kennedy could be the Demo- cratic and black saviour. There was also some speculation behind-the-scenes in- volving a statement volunteered two weeks ago by Congressional candidate A. A. Rayner Jr., who has set his cap for the top spot in the 1st Congressional District. At that time, Rayner disavowed his participation in any campaigning for either Kennedy or McCarthy. The ques- tion arises at this time whether "Sammie" will still maintain his lack of involvement or indorsement of these now front-running candidates? Over in the Third District, where Gus Savage has been beating his own drum in time, the question is, will Savage come out of his bag and shoot the works with RFK, or will he continue in biding his time THIS building stands as a landmark of Elijah Muhammad Muslim's constant strive towards progress and self-sufficiency of the black man. Located at 83rd and Cottage Grove, (formerly known as the Chesterfield Bank Building) the building has been remodeled into what many people describe as one of the finest if not the finest restaurants in Chat- ham. The Muslims, long known for their exquisite cnisine, (except pork, which they don't use) have gone all out to "turn on" the patrons of their newest establishment.
