To a spirited group of boys
representing Bob Kennedy’s Men’s
Shop goes the honor of becoming
the first Little League champions
in East Cleveland sports history.
'The Kennedy nine captured the
local title by edging the Nelson
Jewelry entry, 4-3, in an extra
inning thriller at Shaw Field on
Monday evening. It was the third
and final game in the two out of
three series in which Nelson’s took
the first game, 5-3, and Kennedy’s
came back to even the count by a
4-3 margin at Superior Field last
Excellent relief pitching by Nick
Barile stopped the Jewelers after
they had tied the score at 3-3 in the
fifth frame. Barile relieved start
ing pitcher Clayton Brelo with two
out and third and second occupied.
Nelson catcher Ken Connell greeted
Barile with a double down the left
field line to send Bob Perry and
New Aide To
Named to the position of Assist
ant to the City Manager is Tom
Dinell of South Norwalk, Conn. He
succeeds A. E. Heavilin who
resigned to enter the private prac
tice of law.
Mr. Dinell is a graduate of
Brown University and has a mas
ter’s degree from the Institute of
Public Administration at the Uni
versity of Michigan.
He served in the U. S. Army two
and a half years, as a First Lieu

Dinell was employed by the Bu
reau of Budget in Washington.

Denny Rogers across the plate, ty
ing the score. Barile then pro
ceeded to uncork his fastball
which was effective enough to net
him six strikeouts in two and one
third innings.
Nelson’s jumped off to a 1-0
lead in the first inning when
Rogers rapped a line drive to right
field which took a bad hop over
Carl Christopher’s shoulder per
mitting Rogers to circle the bases.
Wildness on the part of Dave
Stakich, Nelson’s pint-sized start
ing hurler, proved costly in the
bottom half of the third stanza
when he issued a base on balls to
Tom Parkhurst and another to Bob
Weiss. Third Baseman John Feag
ler then walloped a home run into
the left field corner to give the
Kennedy nine a 3-1 lead.
A single and three-base error
accounted for the winning run in
the seventh inning to bring the
game to an abrupt halt and give
the Kennedy team the title. Brelo,
leading off, clouted a drive to cen
ter field which got past Jerry New
ton allowing the two-headed third
baseman to romp across the plate
to be greeted by his happy team
The game was witnessed by the
largest crowd of the season. They
expressed their appreciation for
boys’ fine performances this sum
mer by contributing $84.12 to the
league representatives who passed
through the stands while the game
was in progress. East Cleveland
sports fans have seemed to take a
distinct liking toward the fine
brand of baseball displayed by the
boys in this, their first taste of
league competition, and plans are
already being made to enlarge this
wholesome activity for the 1954

Tarquin Has
Early Date
If you hear strange noises these
nights coming from the “Y” House
at Lee and Euclid, don’t worry.
It’s only East Cleveland’s Tarquin
Dramatic Club rehearsing for its
Fourth Annual Fall Musical.
Since the club is composed of
teen-agers, the show has been
scheduled September 4th-5th, early
to allow the older members to parti
cipate before going off to college.
Recalling last year’s success with
“Girl Crazy,” the group has chosen
another Broadway show, “Anything
Goes,” to be presented in the Shaw
High School auditorium at 8:15.
Lee Road residents have probably
heard the chorus rehearsing the
Cole Porter hits “You’re the Top,”
“Anything Goes,” “All Through the
Night,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blpw,” and
“I Get a Kick Out of You” all of
which are included in this musi
The plot centers around Billy
Crocker, a happy-go-lucky indivi
dual, played by Jack Walsh, who
comes aboard ship to bid bon voy
age to his boss, E. J. Whitney
(Dave Santoro). Billy finds that
Hope Harcourt, the girl he loves
(Martha Wagner) is .also on board
but with her fiance, Sir Evelyn
Oakleigh, an English nobleman
(Phil Traci.)
Billy decided to sail on the ship
to try to woo Hope back and then
the fun begins. Helping Billy is
an old friend, Reno Sweeney, a
nigth club proprietress (Jill Deni
son) on board with six of her danc
ing girls. The fact that Billy is
mistaken for Public Enemy Num
ber One contributes to the confu
sion on one of the most riotous
Atlantic crossings on record.
Adding to the fun are the Rev
erend Doctor Moon, Public Enemy
Number Thirteen in disguise (Jim
Austin) Bonnie LaTour, Moon’s
girl friend (Kathy Wagner) Lord
Oakleigh, Sir Evelyn’s father (Pete
Baker) Mrs. Wadsworth T. Har
court, Hope’s mother (Sarah
Thomas) Mrs. Wentworth, another
passenger (Gloria Marvin Junior

Shaw Day Is
Next Thursday
As important as their first day
at Shaw High School for pupils
new to the building or to the East
Cleveland School System, is Pre
Shaw Day. That is the day the
first-time enrollees get a slant on
what Shaw has to offer, and what
it expects of its pupils.
Wayne C. Blough, principal at
Shaw, announces the 1953 Pre
Shaw Day will be observed Thurs
day, September 3rd from 9:00 to
11:00 a. m. Letters are being sent
to parent* of all registered new
pupils. Any pupil planning to en
ter Shaw for the first time, Sep
tember 8th, who has not regis
tered should do so and should re
port for Shaw Day.
Students will assemble in the
auditorium (second door from Eu
clid ave.) where they will be wel
comed by the president of the Stu
dent Council, Bob Cathcart. He
will introduce Mr. Blough.
In his talk Mr. Blough will dis
cuss routine procedure for such
matters as auto permits, lunch per
mits, use of cafeteria and library,
attendance and tardiness. He will
also discuss briefly Shaw traditions
and policies.
Following the auditorium as
sembly, the boys will go to Room
107 to meet their dean, Mr. Robert
Cawrse, who is also assistant prin
cipal and coach at Shaw. The girls
will remain in the auditorium for
a conference with their dean, Miss
Lucille Provo. Among other things
to be explained by Miss Provo is
the Shaw regulations concerning
the wearing of middies and skirts,
traditional at Shaw.
At 9:45 o’clock a tour of the
building will be in order. Divided
into groups according to Home
Room assignment, the new stu
dents will visit the industrial arts,
household arts and fine arts work
shops the science laboratories the
modem cafeteria, the libraries and
deans’ offices.
On the Recreational side they
will drop in at the Cardinals Nest,
students’ game room and Student
Council headquarters visit the new
half-million dollar Shaw Gymnas
ium and the modern cafeteria,
ranked high among schools in its
service of good food at reason
able cost. The tour concludes in the
respective Home Rooms.
Re^’lar classes begin with the
open of school on Tuesday, Sep

During the just before com
mencement days when they sud

Two predictions are being made today for the post
poned East Cleveland Picnic this coming Wednesday at
Euclid Beach Park: First—fair skies Second—a whopping
big crowd.
The first prediction is based on
weather forecasts as of Tuesday.
Here is hoping Mr. Weatherman
will be right on the “good picnic”
weather” forecast. In the mean
while that melody which comes
floating through the air is “Rain,
Rain Go Away” being sung by the
1953 Picnic Committee, the young
sters and the oldsters to whom a
summer is not complete without
the Community outing at Euclid
Beach Park. They don’t want to be
rained out again. Furthermore,
they have more tickets than ever to
pour into the barrels at the Log
another treasure hunt to add many
more prizes to the already long
MORE TICKETS Right after
postponement of the picnic on that
drenching July day, the Ticket
Committee ordered and distributed
many more tickets. Get your share

Because of the postponed date,
two events must of necessity be
omitted from day’s sports pro
gram. These are the previously
scheduled Little League games.
However all of the remaining
events, including the Kiwanis-Ex

will be held.
