16 CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1957 River Forest Gold Club Burglarized [[image]] Kathy Potucek feeds rescued rabbits CHICAGO BRIEFS Five Rabbits Thank Their Lucky Feet Five baby rabbits, saved by artificial respiration after a bout with Chicago's weekend flood, are now living a life of luxury. They're being nursed by Mrs. George Lester, 4509 N. Karlov, who is feeding them milk from a doll's baby bottle borrowed from her granddaughter, Kathy Potucek, 8, of 4311 N. Keystone. "We knew the rabbits had a nest in our hard," said Mrs. Lester. "So when it began to rain so hard, something had to be done to save them." Her son, William, 4752 N. Kilpatrick, a truck driver, was visiting her at the time and dashed into the storm to pull the tiny animals from the water. He gave them artificial respiration until they began breathing naturally. Then they were put in a box and planed on a milk diet. Safety Effort Lands Him In Hole John Olofson, business agent of Local 20, Bricklayers' Union (AFL-CIO) feels he has a practical example of on-the-job safety. The 59-year-old Waukegan man noted two uncovered holes on the first floor of a new dormitory under construction at Barat College, Lake Forest. He told laborers to cover the holes but an hour later, he said, both still gaped at him. So Olofson took some boards and covered a hole himself. "That won't hold you," one of the workmen childed. "Yes it will," replied Olofson as he stepped onto the boards. About 12 feet below in the basement, a pool of water broke his fall. He spent two days in Lake Forest Hospital, suffering from severe cuts and bruises. "They tell me all the holes are covered up now," he said. "I hope this stands out as a permanent lesson in safety." Humor Paves Way For New Street They have faith, those people in Englewood. It took them 50 years to get S. Union Av. extended from W. 61st to W. 63d, but they made it. They have a sense of humor, too. Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. the ribbon-cutting ceremonies opening the extension will be celebrated in Gay '90s style. Mayor Daley, Cook County Board President Daniel Ryan, and other officials will take part in an antique auto race before the ribbon-cutting. Decked out in dusters, caps and goggles, they will ride in a 1906 Brush, an early Chevrolet and a Bentley. They will be met at 63d and Union by Englewood's fairest damsels, complete with bustles, parasols and other accoutrements of the Lillian Russell era. He Likes His Ike, Wants Him Back Jospeh A. Strasser is willing to pay $500 ransom for "Ike's" return. "Ike" is Strasser's male pedigree boxer which disappeared nearly 14 months ago. His owner, now a graduate student at Syracuse University, lived in Chicago until August, 1956. Just before Strasser left Ike disappeared, lost, stolen or strayed, from his home at 5405 S. Woodlawn. To the person who returns Ike, purchased in Germany and named for President Eisenhower, Strasser promises $500 cash. "I know it seems ridiculous," he said, "but I figure it's the only way to get him back." Strasser can be reached through a friend at BElmont 5-8492. Burglars forced four locks on a rear door and made away with loot valued at about $5,000 from the pro shop of the River Forest Golf Club. Jack Bell, the club's professional, said gold clubs, bags, balls, about 30 dozen sports shirts, slacks, jackets, sweaters and some imported jewelry were taken. He told Du Page County police that apparently the break-in was between 2 and 4 a.m. Monday. Police said tracks indicated the burglars used caddy carts to haul the merchandise off the grounds to a car or truck parked nearby. Bell said his insurance agent said it was the 19th golf club in the area burglarized that summer.

Country To Profit On Recreational Lakes A plan to create two new Forest Preserve lakes and make money on the deal was enthusiastically approved Monday by the Public Service Committee of the County Board of Commissioners. Board President Dan Ryan said the county would net $108,000 by selling earth to A.C.K Associates, a construction company that will excavate the lakes and use the earth to fill for the state's toll road system. Both lakes, to be used for recreation, will be near the Des Plaines River in maine Twp. The larger one, 35 acres, will fill with backwaters from the river. The smaller one, 16 acres, will be filled by drainage from the surrounding watershed. If the county dug the lakes, Ryan said, the cost would be $1,200,000. Work will be completed in about two years. Refugee Is Happy; Lidice Stone Fixed The Czech refugee who found a memorial in Licine, [[?]]. near Joliet, cracked and dirty, has seen his wish for its restoration come true.

Lisice, Czechoslovakia, the scene of a Nazi massacre in 1942. Burian's complaint stirred the Czechoslovakian National Council of Chicago to action and the litter near the monument has been cleared away. Flowers have been planted and a permanent caretaker hired by the Czech council. "It is good now," Burian said. "The people of Lidice would be proud of this."
