Northwest Journal (Newspaper) - October 23, 1968, Chicago, Illinois Predicted Wedding in '63 In a nationally circulated appeared an article last year by a respected astrol- oger stating unequivocally that Mrs Jacqueline Kennedy would not remarry. A well-known psychic in her annual predictions published in January of this year also stated that Mrs. Kennedy would nev- er remarry. But as far back as five yean ago, the internationally known Chicago psychic, Irene F. Hnghes, whose weekly col- urns have appeared in Com- munity Publications newspa- pers for two years, stated that the widow of President Kennedy would remarry in This she has stated and res- tated in the years following her first prediction. In Mrs. Hughes' column of March 6, 1968, she again re- peated her impression that Jac- quelyn would marry in 1968: "Since I am the only psychic this far to predict a marriage for Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, I am elated at the recent flurry of news concerning her interest in a particular gentleman. OtCAJLl.> S published her birth chart and indicated, 'No marriage.' "I predicted a long time ago that five years after her husband's death she would be planning marriage. She's a lovely lady so why Again in her April 24, 1968, column Mrs. Hughes wrote: "It has been my prediction first given five years ago that five years from her husband's death she would be making wedding plans." In talks and lectures to the press and to many other groups she also stated that the man President Kennedy's widow would marry would be "a much older man than herself a sort of father image." In a phone conversation Mon- day with Mrs. Hughes she was asked by a Community Publica- tions reporter what she foresaw for tiie new Mrs. Aristotle On- assis. "The next three will fte happy ones for Jacqueline and Aristotle Onassis. The Kennedy children, Caroline and John and their new step- father will get along fine." This from the Chicago clair- voyant who predicted the Great Snowstorm of 1967 which no one else had foreseen and foretold in her column that President Johnson would announce that he would not run for re-election two weeks before he actually made the announcement on tel- evision. These are only a few of the she has made through the years that have had a startling impact. There have been many others bttt these have not been headlined as widely as the Kennedy-Onas- sis wedding; President John- son's withdrawal from the pres- idential race and the Great Storm. What next, Irene? NORTHWEST JOURNAL Vol. 10 No. 4 4047 W. NORTH AVE. AR 6-0322 w 23, At Ntwsstinds lie copy U PAGES For Safe Keeping County Recoider Sidney R. Olsen signs the bill of lading for the shipment of microfilmed documents from his County Building office to the State Archives in Springfield. Storage of the microfilmed copies in the state capitol insures safety of the legal instruments in case of fire, flood, or some other catas- trophe in Chicago. The documents were filed between July 1, 1967 and Sept. 30, 1968 and between July 28, 1904 and June 8, 1920. The shipment consisted of rolls of microfilm in 24 cardboard containers. Olsen said that by 1970 microfilming of all documents dating back to the Chicago fire will be complete. All documents in the recorder's office were destroyed in the Chicago fire. The shipment to Springfield completes storage of documents in the Archives from 1904 to the present. Current- ly being micromilmed are documents from the years 1871 to 1904 and the present.

Chicago ave., Chicago, llli, 60651. My basement flat has only one door. Isn't this illegal? It is definitely a building code violation. There may be other serious violations but the information yon gave is very sketchy. We suggest yea eaH the building department's complaint sec- tion, 744-3420 andttey will give you any help you need in filing a complaint. There are four sewer covers on Augusta and Mayfield that are so loose they rattle loudly everytime a car pas- ses over them. The noise is very annoying early in the morning when traffic becomes heavy and can be heard distinctly at night. Something should be done to tighten the covers up. M.R. Hope you're sleeping better now. The water and sewers de- partment will have fixed the sewer covers by the time you read this. Two street lights at Augusta and Kedvale are out leav- ing the corner in darkness. One has been burned out since last May, the other for one month. It's so dark we are afraid to go out in the evening. My husband works nights and so does my next door neighbor. Please help get some lights at the corner. E.B. The streets lights department have promised to have new bulbs installed within the week and by this time yon and your neighbors should be enjoying the bright new look at Augusta and Kedvale. Walther Salutes Volunteers Thirty-seven teenage volun- teers were recently recognized for almost hours of ser- vice during the past year at a special awards program and re- ception held by Walther Memo- rial hospital, 1116 N. Kedzie. Volunteer pins were awarded to 23 girls for over 50 hours of service. Six girls received caps, similar to the caps worn by nurses but matching the candy striper uniform, for more than 100 hours of service. Teenage volunteers serve in the nursing stations on patient floors, x-ray department, emer- gency room and help staff the coffee and gift shop operated the auxiliary. Since these young women had shown an interest in the health field through their hos- pital volunteer work, a talk on "Nursing as a Career" was given by Miss Lee Kot- nour, assistant administrative director of Nursing service. The six girls receiving caps for more than 100 hours of ser- vice during the past year were Barbara Guttmann, 2040 N. Spaulding; Nancy Janieszew- ski, 3450 Wrightwood; Gina Leo- 3222 Dickens, Joyce Ma- rudecki, 3310 Potomac; Lucy Malikian, 2218 Medffl, and Laura Peters, J.922 N. Kedzie. Miss Januszewski acquired the highest number of hours 190% through her service in thti x-ray department on Satur day mornings throughout the year. Miss Marudecki and Miss Mellikian gave a combined to- tal of 280 hours of service dur- ing their summer vacation while working on patient floors The other girls served in the coffee shop during the past year Why are teen-age volunteers important to the hospital Mrs Elmer Dettbarn, director of volunteers, answers that ques- tion this way: "Because they supply 'thai extra pair of helping hands' that can make a patient's stay more comfortable and pleasant It's an added touch to the trained services of the hospita staff. Teen-age volunteers give everyone a lift because they are young, eager and enthusias- care enough to take their time to come and do their best to help." At this time of year many persons will be having fur- naces cleaned or repaired. Please warn your readers to be exceptionally careful about who they call to do the job. I called what I thought was a reputable firm to come and clean my furnace. They burned a hole in the top then tried to sell me a new one for An experienced furnace man from a retail company looked at it and said the hole was deliberately burned in and that otherwise my furnace was in good condition and should have last- ed some years yet. But since the furnace cleaner wrecked it I had to buy a new one. I bought it at a store and it cost The Better Business Bureau said it had several complaints against the company and is sending you a form to fill out with complete deatils. The Bureau advises householders planning to have furnaces cleaned or repaired to call the BBB office, 467-4403, if they have been solicited by a company to do the worK. If they are making their own selection from an ad call the Bureau to check whether the company is reputable or whether any complaints have been lodged against the firm. Also, when a worker from the furnace cleaning or repair firm checks your furnace be sure you're not alone but have present another member of the family or friend and watch the worker closely. You may call the Better Business Bureau between a.m. to 2p.m. An abandoned, ramshackle building burned down Sept. 18. The building, at 1838 N. Kedzie, had been the subject of complaint to the building department before Jhe fire. Now, a month after the fire, not one thing has been done to remove any of the debris and the stench is terrible. You can smell it a block away. D. The case against the owner is to be heard before Judge Napolit-mo in chancery court Oct. 29. in room 1408. A final inspection before the court date will be made by the building inspector Oct. 28 and the results brought out in court. We'll keep yon posted. 1st Construction In Industrial Park To Start Within Month Mobile X-Ray Units At Two Area Locations Christmas Seal mobile x-ra> units will offer free e h e s x-rays to the public at two West-Northwest' Side sites: 100 N.

Construction of the first build-! ing on the million industrial park being built along the for- mer Chicago and North West- ern railroad yard between the Belt Line and Pulaski should start within a month, according to John Oelerich, loan repre- sentative for Northwestern Mu- tual Life Insurance company. That structure will house the Stuart-Hale company, now at 2529 N. Pulaski, which plans a plant on a site in the new park. The company manu- factures food corn-pounds, fla- voring for meat, and baking and candy supplies. A few weeks later construc- tion should begin on the new plant of the Midland Smel- ting company, 1424 N. Hal- sted, fiie second company that has negotiated for space in the development. Midland will occupy a foot plant on a site. Northwestern Mutual pur- chased the property from the railroad Sept. 30. It formerly was the Chicago shops yard oi the railroad, most of which has been out of operation Jor some 'time. Present work carried on there by the railroad is being consolidated at the California st. yard. The railroad has started to remove some buildings and tracks, Oelerich said. The development is bounded on the north and east by the yards, extending to the west al- most to the Belt Line, and to the south to an irregular line near Kinzie. Up to 23 firms could be ac- commodated on the 72-acre site, according to preliminary plans that have been drawn up, said Paul N. Zimmerer, executive director of the mayor's committee for Eco- nomic and Cultural Develop- ment. How many plants actually are constructed depends on what companies move into the park. Oelerich said that from the amount of interest shown from the time the project was announced Friday until Monday afternoon, development should be rapid and the park complet- ed and in full operation in two to three years. Northwestern will retain title to the property, building facto- ries to suit the lessees. The total investment in the two plants already agreed upon is estimated at million, and it is anticipated that the invest- ment in the entire project, in- cluding property, buildings and streets, will reach S20-million Northwestern Mutual has been working closely with the Department of Planning and other city agencies in plan- ning the development. Among the improvements is a pro- posal to extend Kilbourn through the park from Chica- go to Kinzie.
