Nurse of year had hoped to be a veterinarian boredom blamed for car thefts the conclusion to be drawn from the remarks of the youths who spoke on the topic a the Young Auto thief a at the workshop in the Austin police station wednesday evening nov. 16, is that not enough adults take an Active role in directing the Leisure time activity of teenagers. This was the opinion of capt. Mark thanasouras Austin police commander who sponsored the meeting. Several youths who had been acquainted with boys who stole cars answered questions about the reasons for the Auto thefts. Their bursting activity. But this safety valve is dangerous As capt. Thanasouras has often pointed out. Stealing cars he says May Lead to other crimes and what begins As a prank May end As a felony. Capt.

It w a s not transportation they needed it was an outlet for i in Park Community have been wondering what happened to the Alamo Community organization and deserve an answer. A the Small group of people mainly from local churches who envisioned and gave birth to Taco intended it to be a mass broadly based Community organization representative of All interests and subservient to none. A but it Hasni to turned out that Way. A it has turned out to be a forum of Community leaders by and Large representing churches both Catholic and prot e s t a n to Community service agencies some businesses and political leaders largely from the 31st Ward. It May Well be the first time such a leadership communication has been attempted in our Community and it has borne fruit. Too Long there has been no communication and too much suspicion among such leaders. A what fruit a a a the persons in the Kost Ner Chicago area were alerted by Taco to an incinerator proposed in their neighbourhood. While Taco did not join their protest it did give them the Chance to protest. A a a a clean up Campaign particularly marshalling school resources had meat on it for once. A a a the Chicago Avenue merchants chamber of Commerce was encouraged to continue when it developed a leadership crisis. A a a a Christmas lighting con educational leaders were led to greater inter and intr communication. A a a to h e Duncan North Myca was encouraged in its Community service that resulted in vital summer programs for teenagers and younger children throughout the Community and in securing 14 Vista volunteers for our area. A a a the 500 Block of Sawyer was supported in its Organiza j Tion. These people can testify that Taco is not anti negro As some irresponsible persons have alleged a a a the dangerously unsafe building at 4254 North was torn Down As a result of action initiated by Taco. A a a a much greater inter communication among churches was established resulting in the formation of the Humboldt ministerial association recently. A a a the Promise to consult the Community on any future building or Boundary changes was obtained from the Chicago Board of education Over the new Orr elementary school project which was As arbitrarily announced As was the incinerator. A a a a greater communication of political leaders with other Community leaders was effected. A but Taco is not and in my estimation cannot As now organized be a broadly based j Community organization. It can continue to be a Community leadership forum and i propose 1 that it does.

Fear of truck traffic kills Alley paving property owners in a West Side Block took a look into the future in expressing their objection to any paving of the alleys Between Wab Ansia and Harding Pulaski and the South line of the Milwaukee Road Railroad track. I the Alley was paved All it would do would attract truck Drivers to use it in great volume and tear it up again a spokesman told the Board of local improvements. Three men appeared before the Board and obtained the information that to pave the Alley would Cost approximately $15.83 per frontage foot of their property. The petition to protest the assessment was withdrawn by Peter l. Vito 1713 n. Pulaski after hearing the explanation from the Board chairman David s.

They now Are engaged in preparing a musical version of a Snow White for presentation dec. 15 and 16. Thirty seven years ago an artist waiting for a Streetcar noticed a girl pressing her face against a Barber shop window and gently crying Over a broken egg. He painted the tender scene and presented the painting to the Barber Henry k. Bartlang who placed it in the window of his shop at 5104 Chicago hoping the girl would notice it so that he could give it to her. He had Given up Hope of Ever finding the subject of the painting. Two weeks ago however the item appeared in the Community publications a talking it Over Quot column and the girls now a woman noticed it and contacted Bartlang. She is mrs. Helen Kranzel 426 n. Lawler shown above As she accepted the painting last wednesday from or. Bartlang at exactly the same spot where the artist painted her 37 years ago. For details see today s a talking it Over Quot column on editorial Page a however Money must be raised to hire an experienced organizer in order to form a democratic broadly based not singularly dominated Community organization. To me this was High priority. We need a voice and a Power in Humboldt Park that represents the people and that is not dominated by any part of the establishment be it political organization the churches business or Industry. All of these must be represented but none dare hold controlling interest. A a Taco a Constitution which permits individuals to vote at a Congress representing no one but themselves allows single interests to hold Sway. And this did happen. At the organizing Congress in May of this year a majority of the individual voting members were recruited by the 31st Ward democratic organization. Immediately a Leader in that organization took the floor to protest a technicality and launched on an apparently 1 Well thought out plan. Apparently another Northwest Community organization was feared and would not be allowed. With the Constitution drawn up As naively As it was a considerable number of organization personnel were nominated from the floor and elect Jed along with other Church. I school and Community leaders previously slated. Frankly i feared the worst. A but frankly also the worst did not materialize from at least one Point of View. As initial meetings of the executive and steering committees were held these political leaders showed genuine concern for the Community. Yes it related closely to their interests. And some were defensive when political toes were if. Danger of being stepped on Oke the incinerator Issue or on channels for dealing with dilapidated housing but a number also greatly impressed me As intelligent concerned and not tied stupidly by Ward organization loyalty. In fact Soma of these continued on Page 7 doubts fund Cut to affect is will the cutback in Federal Highway funds affect the pro j posed North South expressway 1 that was the question that followed the announcement last week that president Johnson i has reduced Federal allocations for Highway purposes As a weapon to combat inflation. Milton j. Pilarsky City commissioner of Public works said a thought Tho decision would Hava no affect on the North South Crosstown project As it is not far enough along. Pikarsky said that presently the Federal Bureau of Public roads is studying the feasibility report submitted to it by the state Highway department. Its decision will be based on engineering details of the plans without regard to allocation of funds Pikarsky said. He commented that the cutback will not be an Issue until the Federal Bureau approves the plans. Then it will be up to the state to decide How it wants to use the Federal Highway funds allocated to it. He imagined that at this Point the state would a take another look at its Highway program. The feasibility report submitted to the Federal Bureau proposes construction of the Highway As approved by the Chicago plan commission. This is the route along the Belt line Railroad with portions of the Highway elevated some depressed and others at ground level. Most of the West Side Section would be elevated.
