This is the first time this decorating, which includes the message “Shaw High Greets You” has been up since outdoor lighting .Was banned during World War 11. The Shaw Student Council de cided that it would be a good thing to see the tree outline lighting once again, and therefore volun teered their services in helping in stall the lights. Serving in this capacity were Allan Lynn, Dave Trump, Bob Gibson, Bob Mears, Dave Baumgartner, Bill Campbell, Duane Gerasimos, Bart DiLiddo, Ted Tsevdos and Dick Baumgart ner, who aided the Board of Edu cation’s electrician, Mr. Roy Nolff in assembling and mounting the display. Based on the meter tally made Sunday and Monday, more than 16,000 automobiles have made up ■sthe processions which have slowly dniven through the grounds at Nela Park to view the General Electric Co’s, lamp works first out door Christmas display since 1941. A gigantic tree, 60 feet high and 28 feet wide, is the center of at traction, among the dozens of trees on the beautiful grounds, all shin ing forth with many, many lights. The display burst into beauty at 7:15 p. m. last Friday as Miss June Mathews, a Nela Park em ployee, waved a fluorescent wand illuminated with a high-frequency radiation. The preview was preced ed by a cocktail party for lamp de partment employees and their fami lies and guests. Christmas carols were sung by the Nela Choral Club, directed by Fran Kolda of the com pany’s Cleveland Equipment Works. Kenneth G. Reider, lamp depart ment manager in a brief talk re vealed that the huge tree symbo lizes America’s stamina and will to carry on. Monsignor Thomas V. Shannon of the neighboring Christ the King Catholic Church gave the invocation as L. C. Kent, in charge of Nela Park Lighting Institute, served as master of ceremonies. Motorists are asked to enter the grounds through the Nela-Terrace road gate and leave through the west gate onto Noble rd. Within the grounds GE guards are directing traffic, while the City of East Cleveland’s police depart ment are having from six to eight traffic guards on duty nightly to direct traffic entering and leaving the grounds. From the East Cleveland Picnic Committee comes an unexpected request. They are asking every one to please help keep the two trees which the Committee has given to the city again this Christ Bias, things of beauty. “Please don’t remove the bulbs or other decora tions” they ask. Surprising isn’t it, when the trees add their Christmas touch to Euclid-Superior and Hay den-Shaw intersections? One natural tree in the dining room at Huron Road Hospital is the limit of trees this year, as the hospital follow’s the newest re gulations relative to use of trees in public buildings.

All wreaths and holiday decorations are being dipped in a fluid recommended by Fire Chief Fred Steffens. Outdoors, the ever greens on the lawns will be light ed.

City s Shopping Sees Cost Drop Routine business that always comes along at this time of the year, took up most of the time at the City Commission session Tues day night.

Apthorp, there was noted a slight decrease in the cost of a number of items. When asked about this, Mr. Apthorp expressed the opinion that, this was due to competition, rather than to Actual decreases in current prices. The city uses about $11,000 worth of gasoline a year. The contract at 17.7c goes to Pocohantas Oil Co. City Service gets the kerosene bid at 13.5c per gallon, and a new Chevrolet station wagon will be purchased for $2,000, which is $100 less than that company's 1948 bid.
