Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 14, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kapids Gazette: Sun., July li, 1971 Photo by Dusne Crock TAKING national park reservations on lines that Park Reservation system vice-presi- dent 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 work- ers 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 calls per day. Park Reservation Business "Settling Down" Despite Slips By Tom Having become somewhat blase about all the news re- lease mistakes that have plagued Park Reservation system of Cedar Rapids, vice- president James Rossie said business appeared to be "set- tling 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 wrong number to prospective campers. This brought to four the number of erroneous telephone reports in the short history of the ser- vice 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 which Ros- sie said he understood to belong to "a little old lady from Quebec who could hard- ly speak English was given out." This time around, the number released by the Flori- da people was for Stan's Radio and TV shop in Cedar Rapids. The store reported getting "50 or 60 calls in the first few but the volume has diminished to "two or three a day" now. Thursday, a wire service story mentioned that campers should send to the Cedar Rapids box office number which the service uses. Actually, Rossie said, the camping charge plus the reservation fee must be sent or the correspondence will be returned. He added that similar prob- lems occurred when the busi- ness first started, and it be- came impractical to continue to make exceptions for indi- viduals who did not include the campsite cost. Nevertheless. Rossie said Citizens Collect i Detroit Trash DETROIT (AD Pride is said to be uplifting, but for this city it also leads to facelifting. This year's annual spring cleaning, a project called "Pride" by Detroilcrs. over -l.Mfi.wiO 'pounds of trash and debris -flicked up from the streets and alloys of an 80- sqtiare-miie section of the Mo- tor City.

The part-tune staff of 63 is working from 6 a.m. to mid- night and now has nine phone lines available plus Ros- sie's personal unlisted number which he understandably does not want published. Persons interested in receiv- ing the phone number can send a request for a brochure which describes the service to Cedar Rapids PO Box 1976. Candy Bar Credibility Gap Seen on Wrapper By Gerald Gold New York Tlmei Servtca NEW YORK Can you tell a candy bar by its wrapper? Not necessarily, unless you look closely, as in the case of Baby Ruth. Two vending machines of two different vending compa- nies were found on two different floors of a Manhattan office building. Both carry Baby Ruth bars. One, labeled "Giant 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-cent bar. Candy bars traditionally have been made to sell gener- ally for multiples of a nickel long ago they Were 5 cents, later 10 cents, and in recent years 15 cents. A spokesman for the makers nf Baby Ruth, the Planters- Curtiss Division of Standard Brands, said the company print- ed prices on the wrappers or not, as requested by distribu- tors, and added that the legend "Giant Bar" was being dis- continued. 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 what- ever they liked.
