I urk a Iti Irr Forcel vol. 28 no. 39 4906 w. Chicago ave. Vied Nesdal december of i9o7 two pages 3. S.5 59 a a at is a copy failure of courts to Clamp Down on juvenile gangs results in vacant streets there is an Odd feeling that gnaws at you when you drive the streets of the West Northwest Side at night. You can t put your Finger on h right away rut than if done on you. The streets Are virtually empty. Even on warm Clear nights sidewalks in the quiet residential neighbourhoods Are vacant except for an occasional Man out walking his then he does t Tarry outside any longer than possible. The Well lighted business areas after stores have closed for the night Are almost As deserted. The few pedestrians you do see travel out of necessity in pairs or larger groups. F at one time a Man had no second thoughts about an evening stroll either alone or armed robber. But these Punk kids that travel in packs Are something else again. They re like while i Don t condone going Back to the rubber Hose i some times think that if the cops had a Freer hand things might be different says Austin s renewal plan could be ready by mid 68 Man fears the streets after dark. Founded or is death Side the Safe confines of his own Home. I m a pretty Good sized one area resident said and i managed to take care of myself and survive two wars. But let me Tell you i would t walk the streets of any other area in the night for love nor Money. Might be Able to defend myself against one Strong u lieu a Oulu Puxico i Tion the West Sider was asked. Sure we be got ones for the most part. And they do their Job. But apparently there Are just not enough of them or their hands Are tied. Let me Tell you a Story about what happened about a month ago. A neighbor of mine just up the Street came Home about 11 one night. He parked his car in front of the House and As he and his wife started to walk to the front door another car pulls up and our kids jump out. It happened so fast the poor j Guy did t have a Chance. They hit him Over the head with something and two of the punks grabbed his wite s purse and then proceeded to slap her around quite a bit. He wound up in the Hospital for a couple of Days and the wife is still a Ner Vous wreck. We had them Over for Ner a few Days Back and they were talking about moving be cause of that they be been Here longer than we have. But they decided against it because where in Heck would they go. It s the same every place. But that s not the Best part of the Story. The police were on the scene shortly after because a neighbor had called them when he saw the attack. The cops were Able to round up two of the years because of their age they were turned Over to the juvenile a i thormities. The kids came from Well to do families and i Don t know whether it was because of their old Man s influence or because the courts were too lax. But All they got was a slap on the wrist and they Are out on the streets again. I hear All this talk about police brutality and the like and the victim of the described attack still carrying evidence of the beating was equally bit Ter about the mugging and Rob Bery and ensuing court action. Ill talk to you but Don t bring my name into it. 1 saw one of the kids who beat me a few weeks after the attack. He was in a car with three or four others but i could t Tell if they were the ones with him that night or not they were laugh i ing and living it up like nothing i had happened. I suppose it was All a great big joke to that j Punk. It s True like my Friend told you that my wife and i considered getting out of the area after that but where would we go the situation is the same All Over the City and the suburbs sure Aren t the answer. I Don t blame the you can t. They re doing the. I Best Job possible. They were most kind to my wife and me Din after the attack and Thuv went right to work and caught two of the kids. Its what happens after the police do their work that the rub comes. I think i remember Reading in your paper a week or so Back what Richard b. Ogilvie said in that speech to some service clubs. He said something like the courts judges Are living in a world of their own it must be another world if they release punks like those to run wild. These kids know that be cause they Are juveniles the court is going to Overlook an awfully lot. They steal a car Strong some Guy snatch a purse and then when they re caught scream at the top of their a juvenile. You can t do anything to me Well they better do some thing to him or one of these Days he s going to kill some body. Then it s too Austin High Cha fulfilling goals Patrick Gross Pat Gross boy of week the Austin High chapter of the future homemakers of America is moving in High gear i toward fulfilling one of their j main purposes of organization i that of being a service to their Community. J in an Effort to make thanks j giving Day a Happy one. The Home management classes of i the Austin Cha sent a Box of i foodstuffs to a needy family in the Community. The family involving some 17 children received 6 boxes of food Staples including fresh vegetables and fruit a frail cake and a Large Turkey. Mrs. Pearl l. Harris Mother of one of the students donated her time and car to trans port the food items to the family. For Christmas the Home management classes through the Junior red Cross Are donating three dozen blankets two dozen drapes eight knitted articles 50 stationery folders and some stuffed animals to be Given to those in need. Pocket of blight could ready for City Council approval by the Middle of next year. So declared Austin born raised and Austin High school graduate Lewis w. Hill com missioner of the City s depart ment of development and plan Ning in a talk delivered to the kiwanis club thursday at the Austin Myca Hill was referring to the area bounded by Huron Central. Lake and Waller a part of the Model cities program for which Federal planning funds were approved two weeks ago. If the plan is approved with out delay. Hill indicated exe cution could begin As Early As next summer Hill lauded the opinion sur vey conducted by Edward Van de yen. Chairman of the Board of the National Bank of Austin to determine Community senti ment As to the character of improvements for the area. He encouraged other groups to do the same and meet with him so that agreement can be reached before a Concrete plan is put Forth. He said he and his staff Are available from now on for consultation with interested civic groups. Problems and delay arise when groups and individuals fail to express their views until the specific plan is present he said. Then usually it s too late in change plans. This need t happen in Austin and it won t if we have More gatherings like the kiwanis Hill disclosed that three Pri v a t e consulting Shapiro real estate research and mid american appraisal Are assisting the City in gather ing Basic 3ata for the 30-acre while stressing that no plan has been adopted for the area Hill said it is expected that 5 to 10 of the 30 acres will be de fined As an Urban renewal project and redeveloped with moderate priced privately built Low Rise residential structures and related uses. This is in line with the results of the Van de Ven Survey which showed a preference for Low Rise structures More Park and playground space and fewer commercial enterprises. Preferred were single a Milf 5 and 6 room dwellings and two bedroom furnished apartments. One continued Hill recommended a shop Ping Center on Lake St. Be tween Parkside and Waller. Another Felt an Urban renew Al area in Austin should be used As a device to help stabilize the this Means the major focus age Middle class families. Since the area being consid ered is such a Small area it ought not to be planned so As to become an Island of new hous ing in an old Community in Stead let it be an example to the entire surrounding Community of what can be done when neighbors cooperate in planning and building a better Community. I would Hope some serious consideration would be in a Section of the area for Good housing Lor senior citizens the area now is predominantly residential with 24 scattered non residential structures. It is estimated that the 140 residential and partially residential tru Turos involved contain 535 housing units holding 250 single persons. The Austin news started a crusade to modernize the area parts of which have sometimes been described As having the appearance of a deserted min ing town several years ago. The Kate Paul Corcoran 371 h Ward Alderman at the time at tempted to solicit private Capi Tal to renovate the Section but could not raise sufficient funds. Last year the present 37th i Ward Alderman Thomas Cas j by pushed for City action on j the Section and succeeded in getting it included in the Model cities program. I the entire Austin area Hill said will be included in the j far West development area re. Port that is slated for comple-1 Tion next year. It will seek to do the same kind of thing for j All of Austin Over a longer period of time that the 30-acre i project accomplishes now. In answer to a question relat ing to the several non conforming zoning uses now in operation in the 30-acre area Hill said this would pose no problem. The City could buy the structures and if it was decided that there was a need for the Type of business being operate for e x p 1 portion of the area could be rezoned for this purpose. To one suggestion that an athletic stadium be built in the Central Lake area he replied that no one had Ever broached the idea before but it could be considered if there were senti ment for it.
