Antisdale, 1505 Rydal mount rd. Mrs. Harry C. Morrison, 1436 Blackmore rd., and Mrs. Lan dis R. Bradfield, 1494 Rydalmount rd.

She has commercialized gladiolas, deservedly earned the title, “The Glad Lady.” The delicate pink “Stella Antisdale” named for her is grown all over the world and by ■the million in Australia where it thrives best. In addition to being one of the founders of The Ohio Gladiolas Society and of a bird lover’s club now known as The Audobon Society, she has been active in many Greater Cleveland garden clubs. Large trees and flowering shrubs afford privacy and a lovely back ground for the beautifully edged borders and dividing beds of an nuals and perennials in her garden. Landscaping and lawn problems have been successfully solved in Mrs. Morrison’s garden. Establish ed some twelve years ago, it has been developed by the Morrisons since they moved there six years ago. Many trees characterize this garden, but there is ample room for annuals, roses, and perennials. Mrs. Morrison has generously of fered to show her garden even though she must be out of the city at the time. Mrs. Allen K. Gaetgens, will act as garden hos tess for her. Much of the emphasis in the Bradfield garden is on the profu sion of ground cover and greens— ivy, mahonia, and eunonymous. Refreshments will be served here. Mrs. William M.

Gamma globulin is the new blood derivative being administered to polio contacts. It is believed to lessen, and may possibly eradicate, paralysis in polio cases. Miss Francis speaks from her own experience when she pleads for blood donors on East Cleve land Blood Donor Day Thursday, August 27th. She is paralyzed from the waist down as the result of polio. She, like every paralyzed polio victim, hopes that gamma globulin will spare future polio patients from a like aftermath. The National Polio Foundation has designated American Red Cross as its medium to secure and process blood for gamma globulin. Red Cross accepts its new assign ment, while continuing to furnish blood for wounded veterans. Miss Mary Jean Sturroch, Great er Cleveland Red Cross aid in its Blood Donor Division resides at 15000 Terrace rd. Speaking of the August 27th Blood Donor Day here she says: “Being an East Clevelander, I am proud of the generous way in which the people of East Cleveland have donated their blood. In a program such as this where pre sent needs are continuing, and new ones constantly arising, we know that East Cleveland will again give its share”. To give blood on East Cleveland Blood Donor Day call LI. 1-7009 (mornings or evenings) ER. 1 0178 or PO. 1-3378. It’s August 27th, 1:00 to 7:00 p. m., St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 15837 Euclid ave.

Of this number 15 had been on the table at the initial session, July 28th. Scheduled ftr last night’s meet ing was the first open hearing. It concerned a rent increase of from $45 to $75. The Committee mem ber assigned to this complaint re ported he had been unable to reach any kind of an adjustment, the landlord insisting on the increase. The committee is gratified at the few complaints received so far. Whether this indicates that East Cleveland rents are remaining as they were, or, that landlords are merely delaying increases, remains to be seen. Inasmuch as so far, the rent meetings have been held on Wed nesday evenings and the Leader deadline is Tuesday for the Thurs day edition, no report can be made to the readers as to the last night’s session. Continued and incompleted com plaints held over from the July 28th meeting were on last night’s agenda. All complaints are being num bered in the order of their receipt, and are being carried by that number in the files and in the minutes by the secretary. Disposition of the 15 cases at the close of the July 28th meeting was as follows: Adjusted 6, Con tinued 6, Withdrawn 2, Scheduled for Public Hearing I. In cases where rent increases are the result of landlord-tenant relationship, rather than the actual rent involved, the commit1— ad vises cancellation of the i_ .*ease and eviction of the tenant. In these instances the Rent Committee holds to a reasonable length of time for CALL NEWS to PO. 1-3378 R.M.Rice To Resign As Commissioner: Broer Is Successor A fast moving session marked the Tuesday night meet ing of the East Cleveland City Commission.

Rockwell* this committee has filed Mr. Broer’s name to substitute that of Mr. Rice on the ballot in Novem ber. He will be a candidate for the full four year term. Walter H.

In the majority of “continued” cases, the Committeeman assigned to that complaint been unable to discuss the complaint with both landlord and tenant. It is the policy of the Citizens Committee to get both sides of the question in each instance. At the July 28th meeting of the Rent Committee a general discus sion was had with respect to an over-all measurement for the de termination of increases in rentals which will be approved by the committee. Taking into consideration the action of the Federal Rent Control authorizing a 20% and later a 10% rent increase on the basic 1947 rent figure, it was the opinion of the committee that such authorized increases should be maintained in sofar as they met with no undue hardships. Furthermore, in no instance can a house be left unsafe, nor can the Committee guarantee to any landlord he won’t have to make repairs if the unit is not in an acceptable condition. In one continued case, the 21% increase sought by the landlord is referred for further checking. It was pointed out that increased rents causing hardships to tenants can prove detrimental to landlords who eventually will lose his ten ant. Increased rents must take into consideration the general condition of the unit. The Committee is finding that single and double rental houses present quite a problem. Rentals on such properties, it is believed, should be based on the purchase price, rather than on —y inflr^-d value on to today’s pi able l__j. A 30% rent increase over the 1947 basis rent of a sin or double house is all that is justified.
