Initial Radar Clocking Halts 36 Drivers -., I "SP'ttD C.CN 1It I .. irs»E K fi 'i-.s'1' K* ,L Wgg z y t-. i'jf '■. i %-^r 4 Despite signs conspicuously posted, warning motorists that they were entering a radar con trolled traffic zone, 35 violators were detected by the city’s newest traffic control device in the first two days of the current two week’. educational period opening here Monday. Chief of Police H. S. Weaver re ports 15 violators on Monday and 19 on Tuesday in the three tem porary zones in which radar is be ing operated. The average speed at which the motorists were travel ing was 40 miles, but one driver was hitting a 55-mile clip on a 25 mile street. Mr. Weaver reminds motorists that all streets in East Cleveland are 25-mile per hour streets, with the exception of Eu clid ave., where a 35-mph prevails. No arrests are being made dur ing the educational period. Violat ing motorists are stopped and giv en a warning. However, when the educational period is over, radar picked-up violators will face speed ing charges. The three temporary posted zones in which the radar equip ment is being used are: Terrace rd. from Noble rd. west to Belmore ave. Shaw ave., north from..,Alle gheny to Hayden ave. East 133rd st., from Holyoke to Shaw ave. Conducting the edueational'cam paign, which includes instruction to officers to be later detailed to radar duty, is Lieut. Charles E. Vyse-of the Traffic Safety Divi sion, and William Marlowe, chief electrician for the city. It was interesting to watch the traffic movement on the posted streets. With few exceptions, driv ers who noted the signs dropped their speed at once and by the time they were passing the radar equipped cruiser, they were down to an almost snail pace. Urge Vets To Use Insurance Wisely Three uses for an estimated $113,750,000 in National Service Life Insurance dividends which will go to Ohio World War II veterans were proposed today by the Sav ings Bonds Division for Ohio. Mer rill L. Predmore, State Director, recommended these uses for the dividends: 1. Pay outstanding bills 2. apply the funds toward paid-up insurance, and 3. put some of the funds into some form of savings such as United States Savings Bonds. The Savings Bonds Division re cently joined with four congres sionally-chartered veterans organ izations to form a committee, one of the purposes of which is to urge the veteran who will receive a dividend to “use it wisely.” “The average payment of $175 per recipient can make a tremen dous impact upon Ohio economy,” Predmore said in a statement is sued by his office at Columbus. “Naturally the Division is in favor of investment of the funds in Sav ings Bonds for security. However, we realize that it can bring great benefits to Ohio veterans if it is applied to reduce burdensome bills and to purchase paid-up life in surance. Whatever use the veteran decides upon, he should be sure to use it wisely.” '/i ................................ Brave Forsythia Bloom Foretells Of Springtime “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?” No, spring was mak ing her bow at the information desk at City Hall Monday where Miss Catherine White had placed blossoming sprays of forsythia to charm all who came that way. “They looked so cold out in the yard”, explained Miss White, that I just had to bring the budding sprays inside”. The gay yellow blooms certainly lent a springlike air to Monday, which was sunny, but crisp as a winter day should be. And speaking about winter on Monday, there wasn’t a flake of snow, but clear skies and the 56 21 temperature was welcome after days and days and days of grey skies and rain.

Oh, How We Eat Chicken More than 48,000 pieces of poultry were inspected and stamped for sale by East Clevel land Board of Health’s Sanitary Officer, J. J. Donelan in 1949. Compared with the 1,270 pieces similarly handled in 1948, the sel ling of cut-up poultry has certain ly stepped to the fore. Needless to say, chicken still rates high when it comes to dining. The increase reveals the number of butcher shops Jn town now re quiring this service, another new one in the progress of food supply and demand. This is one of the interesting figures taken from the 949 re port filed by Officer Donelan. covering his many services as the city’s sanitary inspector, a post which guards the health of every citizen. Besides being on hand to in spect poultry as it is being cut into the usual six pieces. Mr. Donelan made 752 inspections of places handling food in any way, plus inspection of many other busi nesses which come under his watchful eye. Next to demanding cleanliness in ail places under his supervision. Officer Donelan is death on rats and thinks dogs should be kept in their place.

That East Cleveland, from the viewpoint of its individual citizens, and from the viewpoint of its or ganizations. is alert to the call of the 1950 March of Dimes is being mirrored in the response which is adding up totals for or ganization gifts. These gifts show clearly that the 21 new 1949 cases and the many “hold-over” cases here, has brought home the need for financial assistance in the bat tle being waged by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, Judge Stanton Addams, who has chairmaned the local March of Dimes campaign time and again, reports the “kick-off” organization gift to be a check from the East Cleveland GOP club.
