Ot) Willing Willie Chicago's Oldest Neighborhood Answer Man Headers are invited to send questions on civic problems that need to be tackled to Willing Willie, Community Publications, 4906 W. Chicago ave., Chicago, Illi, 60651y I've been looking for months for an apartment. I can't find one. Of course there are many apartments but even landlords with six rooms to rent want only two children. I have five children. Trying to find a landlord with an apartment to rent to a family with five children is like "looking for a needle in a hay stack." The city keeps tearing down buildings leaving hundreds of families homeless and those with children can't find a decent apartment to live in D.P. It is a problem finding a building owner who will agree to rent to a family with five children and Willie sympathizes with your plight. So does the Organization for a Better Austin which will try to help you in your search for a place to live. Please call the OBA's housing referral service, 261-8343 week- day afternoons and tell them your problem and what you need in the way of housing. They will do all they can to help. Since you published an item in your column several weeks ago about how to get bulk trash picked up by the 37th ward yard we have had calls from wards all over the city, even from the far North and South Sides Will you please let your readers know that our offer was for 37th ward residents only. Thank Bob Constantine, 37th ward bureau of sanitation. SA Ml 4 J1 WC. gl.n-nl.4 Itntrn wish bulk trash pickup are asked to call the the bureau of sanitation office in their own wards. They find these listed in the phone book under "Chicago-City of-Streets and Sanitation Dept-Ward Yard offices." Although our home delivery by news carrier boys is limited to the West-North- west Side, we have hundreds of mail subscribers throughout the city, that's why you got those calls from other sections of Chicago, Bob. Thanks for responding so quickly to our plea that something be done about street lights on our corner which had not been operating for five months. Within days of my contacting you the burned out bulbs were replaced and we now have the much needed lights. They should call you -'Speedy E.B. Thanks. Willie, in turn, would like to commend the bureau of streets' department responsible for street light service. It was the department's quick response to our phoned-in com- plaint that enabled you to have lights just a few days after you wrote to Willing Willie.

VILLACE OF STICKNEY 5 Goblins to Rove Area Tomorrow If there is a youngster from pre-school to teen age in the northwest area of Chicago who doesn't have a gala Halloween, it's got to be because he just doesn't go for hobnobbin' with a goblin. Thanks to the Chicago Ps.rk District, there will be "trick or- treat" programs in nearly every playground in the com- munity and the entertainment will be so comprehensive and so varied that before the eve- ning is over no one will be cer- tain which is witch. Fun, excitement, and mate- rial rewards are in store for all who participate in the goings-on, and of course there will be costume judging with worthwhile prizes for winners in all the categories. Age groups and originality will be the criteria in the costume judging. As befits the occasion, friend- ly spooks will be the order of the day and their antics will serve as a background for the stunts of the partygoers them- selves. It would be hard to pre- dict what will be the most pop- ular diversion but apple-bob- bing is certain to be near the top of the list. M Weather will not be a factor. Supervisors at the various play- grounds have assured us that if w6b prcVaiiS me ities will move mdoois. In many instances, "weather or some of the activities will be divided between the out-of- doors and indoors. The staffs of the playgrounds have specified in a general way how the holiday will be spent and it is a pleasure to list their planned activities. Here they are: AMUNDSEN, 6100 Bloom- ingdale, will entertain the "small fry" in the afternoon after school with characteris- tic fun such as a costume pa- rade, costume judging, and the awarding of prizes. There will be games and refresh- ments. An evening party for the older juveniles will follow a similar routine with a few more sophisticated activities. BLACKHAWK, 2318 N.
