Chicago Chicago, Two days after purchasing a coat I wore it for the first time and got on the back. I immediately took it to a dry-cleaner. When I picked up the coat I found two holes where the spot had been. They offered to reweave the coat or .give me a used coat in its place. I don't know what to I certainly won't accept a used coat for my lovely new one. Since then they have been giving me the C. G. We spoke to a supervisor in the cleaning plant's service depart- ment. She said the coat had been sent out to be rewoven. She added the management hoped yon would be pleased with the reweaving. Suppose yon didn't like the reweave job, we asked, what then? Then, she said, yon would be re-imbnrsed the value of your coat less one-third per cent for depreciation since yon have worn the coat and it was not considered brand new. The street in front of a Division street vending firm's garage is a mess and the stench is unbearable. There is litter cups, wrappers, bottles and caps. We not only want but demand a clean neighbor- hood. Mrs. G. H. Lenis DcMarco of the Mayor's citizens committee for a cleaner Chicago said he spoke to the manager of the firm. Since then the building and area has undergone two cleanings and the garage has been washed and disinfected. Employes are also reminded to keep the premises clean by four huge "Don't Litter" signs furnished by DeMarco. Hope you're happy with the cooper- ation by the firm and its employes in keeping the area clean. Seek to Rejuvenate Chicago Av. VOL. 29 NO. 20 4906 W. CHICAGO AVE. WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 1968 By Mail WJO a year At Newsstands iSc a copy 2 SECTIONS U PAGES OBA Outlines Its Program For 'Pocket' Redevelopment There is a sort of gully, a big low spot in the alley back of 4603 Palmer and the alley alongside of 4603 runs north and south. This latter alley is a little higher than the east-west alley back of Palmer. When it rains water settles in puddles in the Palmer alley. In summe: it's a breeding place for mosquitoes and stinks. In the winter when snowfall thaws and freezes it forms a sheet of ice dangerous to pedestrians and motorists. Couldn't a drain bet put in the alley to the street sewer. J.T.B. This situation has long been a headache not only to yon but to the 36tb ward yard office. They plan to grade the north-south aiiey in the near future, but aren't too optimistic that this will be The Chicago Ave. Business association is conducting a survey of Chicago ave. com- mercial buildings as an initial step in rejuvenating their shop- ping area. The survey is being conduct- ed between Central and At a meeting last Wednesday, Leo Perlstein, Perlstein Furs, 5924 Chicago, was named to chair the committee making it. The committee hopes to se- cure the cooperation of real estate agents hi finding own- ers of vacant stores along the street determining rents and learning how the shops might be improved to make them more desirable to new busi- ness. In another move, to attract customers, Mel Sobel, Blossom shop, 5900 Chicago, agreed to investigate the possibility of ob- taining whatever permits may be necessary to allow parallel parking in the parkway in a part of the 800 block of May- field. In other action, the associa- tion named George Hudson, Gaelic Imports, 5931 Chicago, co-chairman with Sobel of the organization committee, James S o t e r n, Rex restaurant, 5968 Chicago, chairman, police rela- tions committee; Robert Stofer, Stofer's Bake shop, 5938 Chica- go, and George Hudson, co- chairmen, advertising and pro- motion committee, and May Kohn, Kohn's Men's Wear and Sporting Goods, 5960 Chicago, secretary. The Organization for a Better Austin has given the depart- ment of urban renewal a four- point program they feel should be included in the redevelop- ment of Austin's "pocket of blight." OBA thereby becomes the frst community group to submit a plan for renovation of the area bounded by Lake, Central, Waller and Ohio. The various organizations in Austin had been urged by Aid. Thomas Casey (37th) and Edward Van de Ven, chairman of the National Bank of Austin, to hold meet- ings to discuss the proposals suggested by DUR for rede- veloping the area. Both Aid. Casey and Van de Ven, who have been the prime movers behind the campaign to clean up the have called for unity among Austin's organizations presenting a feeling that by united plan the DUR will realize that the entire community is behind the pro- gram and that the joint effort will speed the redevelopment. >f rt Along these lines, OBA asked David Larson, assistant DUR commissioner, to "keep us in- formed of the proposals made by other community groups so that a united plan might be de- veloped, representing ftie inter- ests of the entire community." O B A 's suggestions for the "pocket" came as the result of a tour of the area last month shortly after DUR revealed its proposals for the site. Taking the tour was a representative oi DUR and the OBA'S Planning and Zoning and Education com- mittees. As it has done before, OBA repeated its demand that a magnet school be included in the area, pointing out that "the present need with pro- jected future expansion indi- cates the need for a pupil school." Following are the four OBA proposals as they were present ed to Larson at a meeting last Thursday: 1. OBA RECOGNIZES an Aus- tin wide education deficiency severe pupil overcrowding with the resulting need for a new school. In order to keep young families in Austin education a permanent solution. The north-south alley is unimproved and is higher than the paved east-west alley back of your home on Palmer. This allows water to drain off and run down to the low spot behind your home. The only real solution is to have the north-south alley paved. But householders with property backing on the alley are not interested because they would be assessed for the paving. Willie, you were asked why householders who have flag holders and poles on buildings in East and West Garfield don't fly the flag. I too have a flag holder but no flag flying. It's not because I'm unpatriotic or apa- thetic, I've been handicapped for more than a year re- covering from a fractured hip. I want to fly the flag but I just can't get out of the house to put it up. It struck me that perhaps there were others in the same spot or with just as good reasons. Incidentally, I don't live in Gar- field area. F. H. Anyone else have ideas as to why householders ta Garfield Park area don't fly flags? Austin Lutheran Seniors Slate Great Lakes Trip The Austin Lutheran Senior Citizens are planning a Great Lakes trip July 26. According to president Mrs. Emma Squaglia, the group will meet at Austin Messiah Luther- an church, Waller and Iowa, at a.m. and depart on the trip shortly after. She also said fhe local senior citizens group has scheduled another Great Lakes tour on Aug. 23. Information on either trip may be obtained by calling Mrs. Squaglia at 287-9750, or Mrs. Elizabeth Schreiner, the club's vice president, at BE 7- 7055. Mrs. Squaglia has also urged members of the Austin Luther- an group to attend the city-wide senior citizens picnic which will be held July 31 in Lincoln Park. The picnic agenda calls for a tour of Lincoln Park zoo, lunch, games, entertainment and priz- es. The day will start at 10 a.m. jroblems have to be met. OBA supports the construction of a magnet school on the urban re- newal land. The present need with projected future expansion indicates the need for a 3000 pupil school. 2. OBA SUPPORTS increased jark land and recreation facili- ies to complement the new school and the existing commu- nity facilities. 3. OBA RECOGNIZES the growing number of older res- idents living in Austin. Together with the Austin Clergy Council OBA supports the construction of low-cost housing for the el- derly on the urban renewal land. 4. OBA DOES NOT support the development of additional shopping facilities on the urban renewal site. OBA agrees with many merchants representing flre Lake-Central Chi- cago Ave. business area that Austin does not need more busi- ness districts. Rather, existing business areas should be main- tained and strengthened. 5. OBA REPRESENTS one segment of the Austin com- munity. We request that Mr. Larson keep us informed of the proposals made by other com- munity groups so that a united plan might be developed, re- presenting the interests of the entire community. 6. OBA FURTHER requests that the DUR communicate with the board of education signify- ing OBA's support for a new school, and inform us of the progress of that communica- tion. Three Area Parks Host Fish Rodeo "Reach Out" grab the great- est fish ever. The day for Chi- cago's small fry will be July 30 when the 21st annual Chicago Park District city-wide fishing derby will be held at nine la- goons from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. with registrations beginning at 9 a.m. To fish in the contest each boy and girl must bring then- own pole (pole not to exceed 16 feet in length) and bait. Casting rods are also permitted. All types of fish caught, except carp, will be considered. All park lagoons are stocked wifh bass, bluegills and crappie fin- gerlings. West Northwest Side la- goons where the fishing rodeo will be conducted arc located La Columbus Park, 500 S. Cen- tral; Humboldt Park, 1400 N. Sacramento; and Garfield Park, 100 N. Central Park. OBA Says Realty Firm Signed Pact Irving Adelman, president 01 Best Realty agreed Saturday July 20, not to enter into any contract sales in the Austin community and not to solicit property in South Austin, ac- cording to the Organization for a Better Austin. Furthermore, Best Realty will notify 0. B. A. when he is contacted by an owner to sell a house, the 0. B. A. claimed Adelman will produce a letter signed by the owner to indicate that he was not solicited by Best and hand-in-hand O. B. A and Best Realty will seek quali fied buyers for his listings in Austin. Mrs. Mary Wallace, chair- man of O. B. A.'s Real Estate Practice committee com- mented, "To date this is one of the most thorough agree- ments that we have obtained from a realtor. The agree- ment was arrived at amica- bly and Ad e 1 m a n of Best Realty has pledged his coop- eration with the O. B. A. to help stabilize Austin." James McNeil, co-chairman of the committee and co-owner of a 6 flat apartment building at 5214 Washington said, the "no contract sales clause of this agreement should be cause for rejoicing among Negroes in Austin. C on t r a ct sales have been an extreme burden to a great many home-owners in Garfield and Lawndale. Now that F .H. A. Mortgages are readily available for perspec- tive home-owners there is no reason for contract buying." Citizen Hero Shown receiving a hero's handshake as a trib- district office.

Greco, 5337 Crystal who purse-snatcher. is staff manager in Prudential's Irving Park Austin Man Cited By Police In Capture Of Purse Thief Coming to the aid of a purse- snatcher's victim at the risk of his own safety, Victor J. Greco, 5337 Crystal, recently earned the official commendation of Chicago police. With Edward A. King, a busi- ness associate, Greco pursued and captured the alleged culprit and recovered the victim's purse. Both Greco and King are representatives of the Pru- dential Insurance Co. Greco is a staff manager, and King is an agent associated with the company's Irving Park district office. They were commended at a ceremony at the Albany Park (17th) district police station for their "outstanding citizenship" by Cmdr Carl C. Drammis, commander of the Albany Park police, acting on behalf of Supt. James B. Conlisk Jr. Also on hand to congratulate the two "crime- stoppers" were Marion J. Morris, director of agencies for Prudential's Chica- go region, and Bruno J. Pinkos, manger of the company's Irv- ing Park office. According to Cmdr. Dram- mis, "In a period when we all read and hear of victims of crime being refused aid by the general public, the action on the part of Greco and King is deserving of special mention." The purse-snatching inci- dent occurred on the street in the vicinity of the Prudential district office on June 18 at p.m., Cmdr. Drammis said. "Fortunately for the victim, this crime was witnessed by Greco and King. Both of these gentlemen exemplified their outstanding citizenship in that they gave immediate chase, which resulted in the apprehen- sion of the perpetrator and the recovery of the victim's prop- he added. According to Pinkos, staff manager Greco joined Pruden- tial in June, 1957, as an agent in the Irving Park district. He was promoted to his present post in June, i960. A graduate of Austin High school, Greco has completed the insurance courses given un- der the auspices of the Life Un- derwriter Training council. IB 1968, he served as a moderator on planning and organization at a Prudential staff manager school. He is a World War II veteran of Army Air Force. Area Croups Clash Over Site for New Austin School Some 80 persons Friday night attended a sometimes noisy, disputatious meeting at Colum- bus Park of the Emmet United committee as members dis- cussed a conference held Thurs- day with Area C. Supt. George Connelly, Assistant Supt. Fran- cis McKeag, and District 4 Act- ing Supt. John P. Byrne. About a dozen representatives of the Town Hall assembly and residents of the vicinity of Young Elementary school, 1434 N. Parkside, were at the meet- ing. The Emmet group is an af- filiate of the Organization for a Better Austin. The Thursday meeting of a delegation from the Emmet committee, OBA and Emmet PTA, with school officials was arranged to discuss mo- bile classrooms to relieve ov- ercrowding at the school, per- manent relief, and alleged de- ficiencies in staff and build- ing repair at the school. The Emmet committee and OBA insist that no mobile units be placed on the Emmet play- ground. It was said that McKeag asserted no site had been se- lected, but that he had maps showing mobile units in place on the playground. OBA and the school commit- tee favor a new school to be placed on the urban renewal area in the Austin Town Hall vicinity. THA opposes this loca- tion, prefering that the school be located south of Lake st. Mrs. Charles Walther, chair- man of the committee, said that McKeag suggested that Emmet seventh and eighth grade pupils be sent to the Hay Upper Grade center, which, ac- cording to Mrs. Walther, would require that students from the Spencer Elementary school area now attending the center would have to be sent back to that already overcrowded (Continued on Page 2)
