Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 14, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4A The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., July 14, 1974 V' 111 Brf! i —Gazette Photo by Duane Crock TAKING national park reservations on lines that Park Reservation system vice-president James Rossie said have been "saturated" since the business began operation a few weeks ago are, from left, Cynthia Johnson, 1050 Fifth avenue, Marion; Mark Williams, 1908 Cach lane SW; and Sherrie Tierney, 916 Jacolyn drive NW. Rossie said telephone traffic appears to be "spreading out" now that the July Fourth holiday is past, but workers are still attempting to get calls down to one-and-a-half minutes to keep the lines open. The service has been getting as many as 10,000 calls per day. Park Reservation Business ''Settling Down” Despite Slips sie’s personal unlisted number which he understandably does not want published. Persons interested in receiving the phone number can send a request for a brochure which describes the service to Cedar Rapids PO Box 1976. By Tom Fruchling Having become somewhat blase about all the news release mistakes that have plagued Park Reservation system of Cedar Rapids, vicepresident James Rossie said business appeared to be ‘‘settling down" despite a couple of more slip-ups last week. The service is a centralized location to which people from all over the country can write or call to make camping reservations in 21 national parks. Early in the week Rossie found out that Florida sources were giving a WTong number to prospective campers. This brought to four the number of erroneous telephone reports in the short history of the service which started last month. The first time a non-existent area code was used. Next came a number for Dearborn Brass Co. of Cedar Rapids. Third, a number w’hich Rossie said he understood to belong to ‘‘a little old lady from Quebec w’ho could hardly speak English was given out." This time around, the number released by the Florida people was for Stan’s Radio and TV shop in Cedar Rapids. The store reported getting ‘‘50 or 60 calls in the first few days," but the volume has diminished to "two or three a day" now. Thursday, a wire service story mentioned that campers should send $2 to the Cedar Rapids box office number which the service uses. Actually, Rossie said, the camping charge plus the $2 reservation fee must be sent or the correspondence will be returned. He added that similar problems occurred when the business first started, and it became impractical to continue to make exceptions for individuals who did not include the campsite cost. Nevertheless, Rossie said that since the July 4 holiday is over, he thinks the glut of both letters and phone calls should lessen. The part-time staff of 63 is working from 6 a m. to midnight and now has nine phone lines available — plus Ros- Citizens Collect Detroit Trash DETROIT (AP) - Pride is said to be uplifting, but for this city it also leads to facelifting. This year’s annual spring I cleaning, a project called* "Pride” by Detroiters, saw over 4.000.000 pounds of trash and debris picked up from the streets and alleys of an 80-square-mile section of the Motor City. The program, which began In 1970, involved some 125,000 resi- j dents as well as Detroit busi-1 ness men who contributed $25,-1 OOO to pay for supplies and promotional material. Fire stations passed out 250.000 trash bags 1 and police precincts distributed I bumper stickers and posters. | The Detroit department of public works sent 1,000 men and 250 sanitation trucks on .special runs throughout the city, while the Michigan national guard as-1 signed 50 trucks and 200 men to patrol the area, collecting debris too heavy or bulky for the sanitation trucks to handle. . . .

Not necessarily, unless you look closely, as in the case of Baby Ruth. Two vending machines of two different vending companies were found on two different floors of a Manhattan office building. Both carry Baby Ruth bars. One, labeled "Giant Bar", weighs 1.8 ounces and sells for 25 cents. The other, without the "giant" legend, weighs 1.85 ounces and sells for 15 cents; the price is prominently printed on the wrapper. No price is printed on the 25-ccnt bar. Candy bars traditionally have been made to sell generally for multiples of a nickel — long ago they were 5 cents, later IO cents, and in recent wars 15 cents. A spokesman for the makers of Baby Ruth, the Planters-Curtiss Division of Standard Brands, said the company printed prices on the wrappers or not, as requested by distributors, and added that the legend "Giant Bar" was being discontinued. Asked about the difference in size of the two wrappers for essentially the same size bars, the spokesman said the company had different kinds of machinery that happened to turn out different kinds of wrappers. Sources in the industry said a number of manufacturers were tentatively planning to discontinue the 15-cent bar (the weights vary, depending on the type of candy) and to try to introduce a somewhat larger bar in the fall that would sell for perhaps 20 or 25 cents. And some manufacturers that had always put the price on their wrappers were reported to be discontinuing that practice, to allow distributors and retailers to charge whatever they liked. j- Training in the art of Encouragement with Doctor R.
