WOODSTOCK I Franz- Rtchards INSURANCE k ~ .*j Freeport, III. Hail & Eckert FEderal 8-0158 Woodstock, III. Ricans in the Big City by being such a go-getter for them at, great expense of money and comfort to himself. ~i"hcy get picked on, we said earlier: Fr. B the Spanish-speaking Jesuit who went with Garcia on his rounds, told me that he had isited one family of 12 livingi in 2 rooms. A nice family, too. When the reading-class staff visited M i k e Haley's father (the train-brakeman) in h i s third-floor apartment over a store on the big, busy street we asked Mr. Haley what rent he paid. $55 a month was his answel; not too bad, all things considered. "BUT THOSE PUERTO RI- CANS across the street, livin' in the exact same apartment, are payin' $120 a month," ad- ded the perspicacious Mr. Ha- lay. $120 a month for 31/2 rooms over a store! This miserable situation ' is not exclusive to the Puerto Re- cans, although they, b e i n g among the newest newcomers to the City, are most in the limelight these days. Newly- arrived Negroes have been get- ting this treatment for decades. Southern mountain = W h i t e s ("hill-billies" in street lingo) are being "rimmed" by greedy landlords in the area where they are concentrated. (THE W OR D "GREEDY," by the way, is not to describe landlords in general, but to dis- tinguish the "good guys" from the "bad guys" in this drama of people vs. living space in the Big City. Needless to say, there are landlords who take it on the chin, too, from hard-living tenants, from neighboring own- ers who have "paid off" the building inspectors -- or more likely, the inspectors' higher- ups somewhere along the line-- or from just plain young hel- lions who like to break win- dows and knock over garbage cans. Man, it gets complicat- ed!) Leaving the Puerto Ricans for the moment, let us consider the case of the neighborhood council which met regularly at our settlement h o u s e. They were some 6 or 7 men and one woman, most of them people who had grown up in the neigh- borhood and wanted to keep it a nice place to live in. Sitting in on their discussion this par ticular n i g h t (besides your ever-present FTO man) was a "detached worker" from an- other settlement (an e a r 1 y- middle-aged man who goes out to the young Puerto Ricans in the streets and in the parks) and the teen-aged son of the evening's chief complainer.

THE OBSERVER the group this evening was the horde of teen-agars who ~were p r a c t i c a lly terrorizing the neighborhood with their night- long orgies of drinking, gam- bling and what-not, and who had threatened with violence any- one who signed a police com- plaint against them. Great was the hue-and-cry raised at this small, informal meeting against t he s e unregenerated members of a newly-arrived minority group which we shall not here name -- "There are good and bad of all kinds" is' the standard, very true obser- vation at this juncture. Loud were the complainings, vivid the descriptions of whatI went on in this certain building[ till the wee hours of the morn-: eng. And when the police were called, the look-outs w o u 1 d bring last-minute warning, and all would be quiet. No arrests had yet been made. What was needed? This meant facing the delinquents in the court room. Who would do it? As matters turned out, no one. OH YES, THERE was one, guy, named Rodriquez, w h o had been unable to come to this] meeting. He had said he would do it, that he was afraid of no one. And there was one other, one of those at the meeting, a broken - English-speaking Ital- ian immigrant (a heavy-set, black-haired, jowly man Who had said that in the old country people would not have gotten away with such goings-on; and we believed him). But what about~ the chief complainer, the man who had the most vivid description to give of it all, the one who knew everything there was to know and would have made the best witness of all? What would he do? What would he commit himself to at this meeting, with his son looking on? "NOW WAIT A MINUTE, John," he spouted w h e n the real leader of the group asked him if he was willing to back up the fearless Rodriguez when he brought in the complaint. "You're trying to back me into a corher on this. I refuse to be buffaloed into anything!" And on and on it went. The bell around the big old cat's neck was a wonderful ida a, but which mouse would tie it on9 The reluctant witness's l:~si- tion was perfectly understand- a b 1 e: he didn't, in his own words, want his "head bashed 'n " ' " I . But until he ran that risk, all his complainings would be worthless toward solving the problem. The hard facts of the matter were as simple as that. LATER CAME the h a r d words: "The trouble with him is," said the social worker on the way out, "he's chicken and he w o n't admit it. Such a tragedy, too, with his son look- ing on," A hard judgment. Too hard? Possibly, Possibly. Sacred Heart ROCKFORD -- The Rev. Wil- liam K. Schwienher, S.J pro- duction director of the Sacred Heart program will be guest speaker for the fourth topic on the series, "Why Marriages Fail." Father states that "mal- adjustment of personality" means a failure to set up a satis- factory relationship between two people's individual characteris- tics. No two people are born who naturally adjust to one another without effort and good will. Copies of Father Schwi~eher's talk are available to anyone writing to station WREX and re- questing Sacred Heart Program No. 441. The Sacred Heart pro- gram telecast by 149 stations throughout the world is seen each Sunday at 10:15 a.m. on WREX-TV.

The state commissioner of education has called for revision of the ed- ucation law, including an appeal for planned programs in public schools for moral and spiritual values. Dr. James,E. Allen, Jr made the call in a 'working paper" to the-state board of regents in which he suggested changes in New York schools. Throughout the entire school curriculum," he said, "there should be planned programs and activities designed to develop in young people a strong commit- ment to moral and spiritual val- ues: commitment to honesty, accuracy and personal responsi- bility; respect for the intellect and intellectual life; respect for the dignity of honest work, etc. "Knowledge and understand- ing of facts and processes are useless in a free society unless they can be related to values." Allen's other recommenda- tions included offering every major foreign language to all high school students by 1970, and a more intensive effort to im- prove reading. (Mike Plesa, Prop.)
