Health Club Honors Daddy-o Dailey
Volume II. ROBBINS, ILLINOIS, SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1954 2nd Year—No. 15
OUST MARSH; JOHNSON
MADE NEW POLICE HEAD
In a reshuffling of the heads
of departments at the end of a
fiscal year, which came at last
Tuesday’s regular Council Meet
ing Trustee Leo Marsh was
shifted from his office as Police
Commissioner.
Mr. Marsh was Police Com
missioner during the hectic days
of dope peddling here in the
village and came in for some
severe criticism in his handling
of this department
The man who succeeds Mr.
Marsh Johnson
Marsh in office is Mr. Elbert
(Zip) Johnson. Mr. Johnson
was also much publicized dur
ing those “dope peddling” days
and was one of the department’s
severest critics.
O.K., Mr. Johnson, it’s all
yours 1
To this reporter, Mr. Marsh
expressed elation and relief h
be freed from the onerous h”'
dens and responsibilities of the
job of Police Commissioner.
-o
Sunday, May 2nd, 1954, The
Robbins Health Club was host
at a dinner party given in hon
or of radio disc jockey Daddy-o
Dailey. A delicious chicken din
ner comp’ete with trimmings,
was served.
Guests of the Health Club
included Mayor Theodore Hen
dricks and his wife, trustees
Anderson and wife; Starks and
wife and the Chairman of the
Health Department, ‘Zip’ John
son and wife.
Trustee Johnson, after only
three years in office is doing a
commendable job with the
Health Department, which he
formed and organized two years
ago.
Each citizen of the village of
Robbins should pay homage to
the great little band of women
who have contributed so much
to the village by their unceas
ing efforts in behalf of people
of our small community.
We refer to that inspired,
magnificent group known as the
Robbins Health Club.
As you know, at one time
they purchased an aged piece
of equipment for service to the
people, but this did not stem
the tide of their ambitions,
they kept working and toiling,
yes, and praying, until in 1952
they presented for service to
the citizens of Robbins, a brand
new 1952 health unit that is a
credit to the town.
In doing this, they not only
gave to Robbins a sorely need

ed piece of equipment but they
established for the village some
thing every village or person
must have to survive. They es
tablished credit by their magni
ficent effirts to make their pay
ments on time. By so doing,
when Mr. Starks, chairman of
the Fire Department had no
trouble purchasing a new chas
sis for a fire truck and a new
squad car on time.
Thus ends the saga of a band
of resolute women, banded to
gether, many hearts, many
minds, but a single purpose.
