when both were students at the
University of Missouri. On one of
these trips, Mrs. Cleland, Cook’s
mother, made the trip in Ike’s
side car.
The elder Clelands, Mr. and Mrs.
Chester Cleland of Ford dr., were
among the guests at the speakers
table. Others seated there were the
honored guest’s wife, Mrs. Cook

speakers.
W. C. Councell, athletic manager
at Western Reserve University but
formerly with the East Cleveland
Board of Education, reminisced on
Cook’s boyhood. The families were
neighbors then. He said they al
ways knew when Cook was home,
the motorcycle heralded. He said
Cook has come up in the good
old American way—through initi
ative, perseverance and industri
ous application to the job at hand
—plus a boundless enthusiasm.
He contrasted this attitude to one
all too general today, saying that
the fellow who gets paid for doing
nothing, usually ends up nowhere.
“Cook Cleland is probably the
best dive bomber the Navy ever
had,” declared Commander Gus
Woodhelm, USN, who recited their
experiences together in the Pacif
ic during World War II. He gave
instance after instance to prove
the flyer’s accuracy and courage.

Gerry Jedd, a native of Euclid,
made her debut at the new Euclid
77th Theatre of the Play House on
Wednesday, November 16 in the
leading female role of “Crime and
Punishment”. Her present home
is 1055 Case ave., Mentor.
She has studied dramatics since
her seventh year. By the time she
was 10, young Miss Jedd had a
popular following as a monologist
and singer. Naturally, she was ac
tive in Euclid High School drama
tics. Her success encouraged her
to make the stage a career. Ac
cordingly she attended the Carne
gie Institute of Technology in the
drama department, where she was
an honor student. During the sum
mers she appeared at Cain Park
and with other summer stopk com
panies.
After her graduation in 1946 she
appeared in U.S.O. shows entertain
ing Army and Navy personnel.
This led to other entertaining jobs
around New York City where her
U.S.O. work had taken her. Then,
in 1947 she went to the famous
Baiter Theatre in Abingdon, Vir
ginia, where she toured for two
years through many of the sea
board states.
The climax of this touring rou
tine came when she joined an
American company which toured
Europe last summer, playing
“Hamlet” at GI bases in Germany,
and at Elsinore, Denmark, the
scene of this Shakespearean play.
Miss Jedd, who is Mrs. Ray
Boyle off stage, came to the Play
mechanical repair finished.”
Someone remarked that Cook al
ways had a screwdriver and a bit
of wire in his hand regardless of
the occasion.
Mr. Rasmussen gathered all the
compliments into one bouquet
when he said, “We honor Cook Cle
land, not as a Navy pilot alone, not
as the two-time winner of the
Thompson trophy alone, but we
honor him for possessing those
fundamental characteristics which
are so necessary in building the
kind of an America we want and
need today.”
Jerry Shaw, Hi-Y chaplain gave
the invocation. The Y Teen
(YWCA girls of Kirk Jr. High)
served the dinner planned by Ruth
Kerr, school dietician. To Stanley
Webster, general chairman W. C.
Cumler, Y secretary, and oil oth
ers who made the affair not only
possible, but such a success, a big
hand.

Charles F. Bassett
A railroad employee since he
was 24 years of age, Charles
Franklin Bassett, 68, died in Lake
side Hospital Wednesday, Novem
ber 16th. Services were conducted
Friday by Rev. Earle C. Hoch
wald, pastor of East Cleveland

Mr. Bassett first was in the

House, directly from this tour. Hus
band Ray Boyle, who is currently
seen in the Play House production
of “The Traitor” at the Drury
Theatre, also follows an acting ca
reer which has paralleled Miss
Jedd’s for the past two and a half
years. The only complaint about
their present status that the couple
has, is that one is acting at the
86th Street theatre of the Play
House each evening, while the
other is on the Euclid-77th stage,
9 blocks apart.
The current production of “Crime
and Punishment” running through
December 4, which furnished Miss
Jedd her Play House debut, also
brought outstanding compliments
from drama critic William McDer
mott, of the Cleveland Plain Deal
er: “Gerry Jedd is remarkably
good.” and Arthur Spaeth, drama
critic for the Cleveland News: “a
performance of beauty and
skill. Miss Jedd gives (her role) a
fine, commanding sincerity and
poignancy”.
