Business: 814 E. 152nd St. i Phone Glenville 4383 t! News: 1583? KncTd Ave. Suite 311 I",', hi To ascertain how many of its graduates attend college and the type of college in which they are interested, with a view of shaping its guidance program, Wayne C. Blough, principal of Shaw High School has just completed an inter esting and helpful survey. Normally, explains Mr. Blough, a college does not notify a high school of the enrollment of a gradu ate. To get the desired information a form was prepared and a copy of it sent to each college to which a student’s transcript had been sent. The returns show that 114, or 33%, of the 345 January-June .1949 graduates are enrolled as freshmen as of September, 1949. The information will be helpful, primarily, in determining the type of guidance needed in the school. It is expected to make of this sur vey a yearly routine. In announcing the results of the survey, Mr. Blough makes it clear that any omission is due to the college’s failure to return the form mailed to them. The following list of the college and the SHS 1949 graduates enrolled there is made up from the returned forms. Baldwin Wallace College—Fred Thomas, Harriet Williams. Bowling Green University- Ron Johnson, Victor Peterson, Ellen Pasco, Carol Thut. Case Institute of Technology— Frederick Allan Gould, Russell Brown, David Hester, Don Kahl- The John G.

V u I I Sr#?? •—Photo by Dick Swair out of the oven Yummy golden brown, comes the pumpkin pie which Dick Fort, Al Gray and Bill Nelson (front) prepared. At tracted by its spicy fragrance (back) Dick Geiger, Dick Hender son and Karl Kramp crowd around for a look at the pie, without which a Thanksgiving dinner is hardly complete. “What’s Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie ?M ask the boys in Shaw’s newest class, foods for boys. Here Dick Henderson carefully trims that extra bit of dough from one of the pies which the boys prepared as a Thanksgiving delica cy. Watching are Bill Nelson, Al Gray, Karl Kramp and Harley Knopf. All the delicious foods with those tantalizing odors which come from the recently streamlined kitchen at Shaw High School is not the work of the girls. Oh, no. The boys are studying there, too. This new elective with fuH credit for a year’s course is due to Harley ■Knopf, one of the seven boys whe make up the first class in foods offered the boys. Harley enjoys cooking and baking. In fact, plans to teach it one day al with woodworking. He had a of it at Kirk Junior High and w disappointed to learn, upon enter ing Shaw, that for some reason oi ,other it vras not included in the curriculum. Harley took the question up wftb the powers that be and learned the subject would be offered if a suf ficient number of boys were inter ested—with the result that seven Shaw seniors are learning about foods, under Miss Lucille Provo, who teaches this course at Shaw. In the class are Harley, Dick Fort, Dick Geiger. Al Gray, Dick Hender son, Karl Kramp and Bill Nelson. The class includes menu plan ning, marketing, care of the kit chen, table setting and serving, with special attention to baking and meat preparation. A text book is also used. Speaking of “care of the kitchen” Miss Provo says the boys are actually fussy about having every thing in shipshape order. Any utensil out of place or put away with the least bit of grease or daugh on it, brings forth com ments a-plenty. Today the boys are preparing themselves a Thanksgiving dinner, complete with roast chicken and all the trimmings, including the delicious pies shown in the ac companying picture. Come Christ mas, the boys will prepare the canapes and make the cookies for the tea which the Home Economic department is giving for the faculty. Fruit cakes are being baked for Christmas, gift boxes containing cake, cookies and candies being in the mind of the chefs. Earlier, the class canned several kinds of fruit. When it comes to a breatkfast to start the day off right, the boys proved tops with pancakes, waffles or muffins, and the grapefruit prepared just right. Earl Kramp was in mess while in service and Dick Henderson’s out-of-school job keeps him busy in the kitchen at Owen’s Planta tion. All the boys take a hand now and then at home, they say. It’s a safe prediction that these seven boys will look back on their cooking class at Shaw as one of their most practical high school subjects and one might also be safe in predicting that the boys who follow in their Foods classes will be grateful to these seven pio neers.

It9s Time To Start Shopping' The past few days we’ve been nosing around in the stores of the comniunity looking for ideas for our Christmas gift list. Shopping this year is a cinch. There ade more doodads on the market than ever before and the stores are loaded. Not only with doodads but with plenty of nearly everything anyone could pos sibly want. The “substitute” days are over and the stuff displayed is the “real goods’*, with no apologies. We dropped in and “shopped” at furniture stores, appliance stores, men’s shops, and even took a furtive peek into, those places where everything has a silky look and is lace trimmed. And, the gadgets they have thought up to amuse the youngsters. We weren’t born thirty years too soon, far from it—nearly fifty. We aren’t going to urge you to rush right out today and do your Christmas shopping. But. we do advise that you get going soon. Stocks are plentiful, but it is a lot more fun shopping when the counters are piled high. Keep an eye on the inside pages from now to Christmas, and we’ll bet you’ll agree with us, that you can do just as well or better in the neighborhood stores— and no transportation or parking problems. 12,800 Circulation Guaranteed Thursday, November 24, 1949 t- Wf f^ Black And Red Hobble Gobble Hop Saturday With plenty of extra entertain ment being lined up, with many of last year’s canteen crowd now in college, back home for the Thanksgiving holidays, and just because it is the first big shindig so far this year, the Hobble Gobble Hop Saturday night, November 26th, at Shaw Cafeteria promises to be one big event.

As we give thanks this Thanksgiving Day may we have a prayer for the privilege of liv ing in America. —Your Editors. Await Their First American Thanksgiving /.•: Ik a J* 1 ', 1 Thursday is Thanksgiving Day and probably no other three per sons in East Cleveland will be so eager to, raise their voices in praise as Dr. Vilis Nagelis, his lovely wife, Ksenija, and her mother, Mrs. Varvara Veismanis. That their first American holiday is a day in which to give thanks is a joy to this Latvian family. They feel they have so much for which to be thankful. The family, which includes also smiling Aija, 7, and blond Egils, 2, are among the recent displaced persons coming for sanctuary in America. Until they are located in a home of their own, they are the guests of Mr. and Mrs. P. T. Isley, 1848 Chapman ave. The Isley’s are active in the East Cleveland Bap tist church, through whose assis tance the family came to Cleve land. While they have been here but two weeks, things have moved in a typical American fashion—fast. Dr. Nagelis and his wife and mother in-law have aTi’eady applied for their first citizenship papers and Dr. Nagelis is working at Huron Road Hospital. As soon as his first papers’come through, he plans to take the Ohio State Medical Board examination and receive his license to follow, on his own, his profession of physician and sur geon. A graduate of the University of Riga, Dr. Nagelis was practising in that city war came. Germany offered Latvian able-bodied the choice of joining the army or going into Germany, with their families. The doctor chose to go to Germany and they made a hur ried exit from Latvia. From then until War’s end he worked in hos pitals in Germany and Czechoslo vakia. Since then he has been as sociated with UNRA and the Inter national Refugee Organization. It has been four long years since he first sought entrance into America, but the lists are long, so long. His brother finally got, into South America. Dr. Nagelis speaks English well. He learned the language in his contacts with Americans in Ger many after the war. Little Aija, who attended school last year in Germany, is now a new beginning pupil a,t Prospect School, and likes it. She is eager to learn the English language so she can talk with her school mates. Eglis, who was born in Germany, doesn’t know what all this moving about is about—he just smiles. The family is a little awed at the size of Cleveland. Riga, the gay Latvian metropolis, had a pop ulation of 40,000 when they were there before the war brought such change and suffering. But they are certain of one thing, that here, in free America, they will find happi ness and work. It is because of this and their gratitude to the congre gation which has made this possi ble, that they will be giving thanks on Thanksgiving Day. Local Woman Is Accident Fatality Shock suffered following a traf fic accident Thursday, November 17th, near Jamestown, N. Y., caused the death of Mrs. Jessie B. Cox, 14600 Euclid ave.

But this is the rai/e and happy experience which came last Friday night to Cook Cleland, product of East Cleveland’s pub lic schools and Y MCA, twice win ner of the Thompson trophy in the National Air Races. The dinner was served in Shaw Cafeteria.

Painted by the Cleveland artist, Quenton Young, the picture portrays Cook’s plane circling a pylon at the race. Too overcome for words, bnt with a smile that clearly showed his pleasure at the gift, Mr. Cle land said a simple, “I am humbly thankful,” and sat down. Toastmaster Curtiss Lee Smith, vice president of Greater Cleve land YMCA, and a former East Clevelander, was a delightfully informal toastmaster. He was in troduced by John Walworth, pres ident of the East Cleveland Y branch.
