Alderman Vel Phillips, Chairman Health-Traffic Committee City of Milwaukee

Dear Alderman Phillips:

In the seven months since the Bureau of Street Sanita- tion started to pick up shopping carts abandoned on public streets, alleys and sidewalks, we have collected a total of 2123 of them.

At the estimated value of $50.00 each, this represents an equipment investment of more than one hundred thousand dollars. Most of the carts have been picked up by the proper owners, at various ward yards. The department has released them without charge, pending a decision on the file currently before the HealthTraffic Committee.

During the first five weeks of the pickup, the average was 109 carts; the next 10 weeks-55, and for the last 10 weeks it has averaged 47 per week.

Attached is a tabulation of the total cart pickup by wards.

This is being sent to you only for your information.

Sincerely yours, [signature] W. Rheinfrank William J. Rheinfrank, Supt. BUREAU OF STREET SANITATION

Mr. Vincent A. Schmit Commissioner of Taxation

Dear Vince:

Here is the address of the two properties that we spoke about briefly the other afternoon as I was leaving the garage: Krueger Bakery, 2678 North Holton Street Davies Beer Depot, 513 East Center Street

Mrs. Clara M. Krueger owned both properties at one time, because originally they were together (i.e. one lot.) I think she has turned over the beer deport to her son Richard Krueger. Mrs. Krueger is a widow. The bakery, which she still runs with the help of her son, has been at 2678 North Holton Street for almost 75 years.

I think that the area has depreciated considerably since the time of her last assessment. Things are not going too well for her financially, but she is much too proud to admit it. She is a very wonderful and sweet lady, and if you could help her in any way, I would very much appreciate it.

General Foods Corporation 250 North Street White Plains, New York

Dear Sir:

Not long ago I spoke to a graduating class, about 50 young mothers. The group had just completed a course in family living, nutrition, home management, food preparation, etc.

During refreshments we were served a jello dessert. I learned later that the cooking instructor had used a particular jello recipe book for the course. I would be interested in receiving your "Joys of Jello" booklet. If it is no longer in print, perhaps you have a similar one.

Sincerely yours,

VEL R. PHILLIPS Alderman 6th Ward City of Milwaukee, Wisconsin
