Shaw Sets Sights 'On Cokmbus: Stop-over In Kent For Regicnak By Bob Keefer As a result of qualifying for the Regional Tournament at Kent State University tomorrow night, the Shaw cage team moves into basket ball’s high society.” In drawing Akron-South as their opponent tomorrow night, Shaw is probably faced with the toughest of the other three regional quali fiers. The Rubber City quintet won the championship in the Akron City League during the current season and matched Shaw's season record of 16-3. Their three losses, however, were by the margin of a total of 4 points. The Cavaliers dropped one-point decisions to Warren-Harding and Akron-Gar field and dropped a 41-39 contest to Euclid last month. Forward Bud Feeman, who was an All-City League choice, and Guard Jim Laria are the Akronite standouts. The team uses a zone defense and has two starting players who hit the 6 ft. 3 in. mark. South was lucky in squeezing past Akron-St. Vincent in the district final last Saturday, a technical foul saving the day for them. With the socre tied at 38-38, a St. Vincent player was fouled in the last second of play. He made good on the free throw and the elated St. Vincent substitutes, thinking that the game was over, ran onto the floor to congratulate their teammates. The officials then called a technical foul for the infraction and Feeman sank the free throw to send the game into overtime. The Cavaliers then out acored the Irish, 7-4 to take a 45-42 “gift” victory. In tomorrow night’s opening game at 7:30 p. m. Cleveland Lin coln will face Akron-Garfield with the winner meeting Shaw-Akron South victor in Saturday’s final contest at 8:00 p. m. Most ob servers are of the opinion that both Shaw and Lincoln will win tomorrow night’s games and there fore make the final game an All- Conservation Is Kathe Topic For their Monday, Mareh 21st program, East Cleveland Kiwanis will hear Richard L. “Dick” Kathe, the voice on WGAR’s Farm Report program at 6:30 a. m. jjpSBI Mb 'v' z Although a uauve ui t^ie.vland, Kathe was early acclimated to farm life through the media of his grandfather’s farm where he spent most of his summers as a youth. There he saw the ravages of soil erosion ^nd his determination to dO something aabout this great loss to American farmers has turned into somewhat of a minor crusade. He spent* two years at the New York State College of Forestry at Syracuse and then two more at the College of Agriculture at Wisconsin. The next three years were spent with the government in Soil Con servation, Forest Service and National Park Service. While :n the Forest Service he parachuted to 13 forest fires as a “smoke jumper.” His first experience with radio was at the Universj'y of Wisconsin and before joining WGAR he was farm director of WMRN, Marion. Kathe holds the highest order in the Grange and is a member of the National Association of Radio Farm Directors.

All of his broadcasts and talks are for or about children, and he has opportunity for practical experience with little folks in his. own home. Cleveland affair. Tournament play, however, is very unprcdictbale. At this point in the play, there arc no “easy” ones left. Every team has passed stiff tests in previous games and every player knows there are no econd chances. Only sixteen Class A teams re maining in the running for the state title out of the more than five hundred which began tourna ment competition three weeks ago. It will mark the fifth time that Shaw has qualified for regional play. In 1921, prior to Coach Roy Wisecup’s long tenure, the Cardi nal eagers defeated Bucyrus, 32 17, in the first round and then lost to Springfield, 30-28. The next crack at the title came in 1939 when the Cardinals made ther first trip to Columbus. Shaw defeated Columbus Bexley, 31-23, and then, on St. Patrick’s night, lost to Cin cinnati Roger-Bacon, 36-30, when Irishman Jack O’Leary tallied 17 points in a “celebration” scoring spree. Shaw made its third trip to the Rcgionals in 1940, again ■winning their first game, a 47-35 victory over Akron West.

Out of the many names suggested by the students, the Student Council sel ected “the Cardinal’s Nest,”— submitted by Al Gray, a senior. Al was given an album of records for submitting the winning name. Announcement of the choice was one of the features at the formal opening of the game room Sat urday night, but excitement burst out of bounds when Coach Roy Wisecup stepped into the room, bearing the trophy which the Shaw basketball team had won just minutes before. The Cards de feated Glenville 62-49 in the dis trict meet at Euclid. They go to Kent tomorrow night, (more of that in Bob Keefer’s column).,^ Dancing, ping pong and t&ble games kept the party in a whirl.

When Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Eis mai' of 17216 Endora ave. reach Germany, it won’t be just' a sight seeing trip, or even an ordinary home visit. Ever since 1937 the Eismars, both of whom are na tives of Germany, have been send ing packages to home folks there. More than 500 containers, with food and clothing have been mailed during the years. Now they are going to find out for themselves just how their kinfolk in Germany are faring. In Duren, Mr. Eismar’s home town, they will visit the church he attended as a youth, and bring personal greetings from the child ren of Calvary Lutheran Church w’ho remembered the Duren child ren at Christmas time.

One requests a change in zoning to permit the erection of a church building at Euclid and Hower aves. It comes from Rev. Andrew Basell, minister of the Calvary Tabernacle, the local congregation of the Assem blies of God. The other request, from Ray Steel, representing the Artic Skat ing Club, would request a change in zoning of property at 15663 and 15669 Euclid ave. (between Coit and Collamere) to permit the con struction of an indoor ice skating rink, retail store facilities and accessory parking. This parcel of ground with a 98 foot Euclid ave. frontage, extends north to the Nickle Plate Railroad right-of-way, east to the Goff Kirby holdings, and west to the rear of residential properties front ing the East Side of Coit ave. The boundary line is most irreguar, reaching 231 feet in width at some places. Mr. Steel explains that the build ing would be erected to the west side of the property, with two re tail stores facing Euclid ave., and an arcade entrance to the rear of the building, housing the rink. Due to the contour of the land, the rink would be on a lower level than the stores. In order to avoid making any annoyance to the Coit ave., neigh bors, all parking will be confined to the east and north of the rink, adjacent to the coal company prop erty, and the railroad tracks. There would be three entrances to the rink. Two from’Coit rd, both of which would be closed at an early hour in the evening, and one from Euclid ave. All exit driving during the evening would be through the Euclid ave. driveway. The hour for closing exit driving via Coit rd. would be stipulated in the agreement with the city, said Mr. Steel. The rink would be approximately 200x85 feet to accomodate 700 skaters comfortably, said Mr. Steel.

The gifts were then packed and dis patched to Dureen, and in due time a most grateful “thank you” came from that parish. Sent ahead of them to Germany was all the food which the Eismars will need during their two month’s visit in the homeland, this being done so they would not be depriv ing any of their folks of the food they so need for their own families. Their previous visit to Germany was made in 1937. The Eismars formerly operated a restaurant in tjie Ivanhoe-Euc lid district but now Mr. EUmar is employed in a factory. It hasn’t always been easy for the Eismars to send their monthly packages but despite all obstacles, the gifts went out regularly, al though it meant self denials and economical living to also set aside sufficient travel money. Auxiliary Police Re-Elect Lindner z ’5 Leonard A. Lindner Leonard A. Linder, who has been active in the East Cleveland Auxiliary Police since its organi zation as a branch of the World War II Civilian Defense movement, and w’ho has just completed a successful year as its president, was re-elected to this office at the annual business meeting of the organization held in City Hall.

Second Chronicle Series Is Started At Superior School When the children at Superior School started to work on their next Chronicle the first thing that they wanted was a theme song. Their theme song' for the six Chronicles about the United States was “This 'is My Country.” They looked around and finally found one called “Let’s Make the World of Tomorrow Today.” Since the theme of this new series of Chron icles is “Peoples of the World” this song seemed quite approp riate. Chronicle VII begins with a boy’s drcam about living in a place -called “One World.” The children discover that people are alike in more ways than they are different. They also discover that they need more information about people of other countries if they are to rid themselves of prejudice and be able to live happily togeth er. The story of the British Em pire provides the material for the rest of the pageant. The 5th and 6th grade children have worked out ingenious ways to pre sent the geography, history, and traditions of England. Folk songs and dances by the 1st and 2nd. grades enliven the program and the May Queen is crowned. Egypt and Australia by the 3rd grade —South Africa and India by the 4th and 5th round out the story of the Empire. In preparing the material on India the children had first hand information from Mr. and Mrs. Meher Nanavaty, students from India who talked at the February meeting of the East Cleveland Community Council. Mrs. Nan avaty showed how to make the costumes and has taught the girls how to put on the saris for the South India folk dance. The children have done much art work to give vitality to this program. They will present it to the parents of the lower grades on Tuesday evening, March 21st at 8:00 p.m. The parents and friends of the upper grades will see it on Friday, March 21th at 8:00 p.m. in the Superior Audit orium. Firemen Will Check Home For Hazards Schoo! Board To Seek $650,000 For Gym And General Bonding Needs Elector’ of East Cleveland School District will be asked to vote on a $650,000 bond issue at the May 2nd primary for a build ing and general repair program. The measure requires a 557® of the votes cast for passage. The project includes a gymna sium for Shaw High School, added or improved physical education facilities in the elementary schools, an over-all repair job at Shaw Stadium, heating system repairs and alterations and a miscellany of repairs throughout the building®. It is the biggest building and improvement undertaken in school physical equipment since the erect ion of the W. H. Kirk Jr. high school building in 1930. The $650,000 figure was arrived at following the presentation of plans and estimates by Fulton, Krinsky & Dela Motte, architects retained by the board of education. Alternate sets of plans were sul mitted for the three major pro jects, namely, the gymnasium at Fire Chief Fred Steffens today offered to cooperate with all house holders who want to make their homes safer by eliminating fire hazards. “A qualified member of the fire department will be assigned upon request to inspect any building and make detailed fire safety recom mendations,” the chief said. “Pre venting fires is as much, the fire department’s job as putting fires out.” Records of the National Fire Protection Association, Spring Clean-Up campaign sponsor, show that nine out of ten fires could be prevented by eradicating all com mon fire hazards, Chief Steffens said.

Arrangements will permit a division of the floor for physical education 1 a a a a during the school hours. The two submitted plans concern seat arrangement. In one perma nent seats would be provided in a balcony, with movable bleacher seats on the floor. In the other plan, all seating would be on the floor, using the rollaway type of folding seat tiers. The balcony seating plan would be the more expensive. Estimates vary from $365,000 to $399,000, and from $442,000 to $630,000 for the alternate plans. Caledonia School Addition of a gymnasium-audi torium has long been a need at Caledonia school. Here the plans call for utilizing three class rooms to the north of the west corridor, with a sufficient addition to pro vide a 65 by 42 feet gymnasium with a 22 by 42 feet stage. The two plans submitted call for an ex penditure of either $91,000 or $98,000. The addition would be on the ■tttJrth side, toward the playground. L.-..
