page 12- Wednesday, December 10, 1980 JU8T ONE MAN With the help of friends, one man has managed to work miracles by granting the wishes of more than 500 children. Children. - A small child dying of leukemia wanted to see Minnie Mouse. Her wish was granted through the efforts of a philadelphia Police Officer who thought "something should be done." Just one man is working miracles for little children. Everybody can work miracles if they just don't listen to those who say, "It can't be done,!" BY CANDLELIGHT I overheard the story about the Cloverdale family who is cutting down on their electric bills and conserving energy by eating their tacos by candlelight. What a neat idea. A family that "gets together, works :together" in such a neat aay deserves a gold star. Whoever you are "tacos by candlelight," everybody is talking, you inspired us all. P.S.: If you have anymore interesting ideas, give us a call. We need to work together as a people to help us through this .energy crisis, and will need all the help we can get. igCHOING HOLLOW Mayor Diane Feinstein's words, "We are not going to tolerate this," are beginning to echo with a hollow sound as the violence of violent crime committed on the streets of San Francisco continues to increase.

SAGA OF THE NUTS I guess the saga of the missing (taken, stolen) walnuts is just about over. My favorite relative has managed to keep a good supply of nuts for himself but not without a struggle, and a touch of humility. Yesterday, I asked how thifigs were going and it was ap- parent he did not outwit the squirrels. He said, "There aren't anymore nuts. After the squirrels got what they wanted they left the neighborhood."
