Hi Ys Enlist In
Peanut Barrage
Due Saturday
The Peanut barrage is on. A
veritable army of boys is joining
the ranks of Camp Fire Girls and
other volunteers in putting over
the Kiwanis National Kids Day
observance here Saturday.
YMCA Secretary William Cum
ler and Physical Ed Director Jim
North have issued the call to boys
through visits to the schools. “The
response should bring out enough
boys to man every street corner
on the list” states Mr. North. “We
told them this is the time to eome
out and help Kiwanis which has
done so much for them through the
Boys will meet at their respec

Irate Passenger
Slashes CTS Driver
Police are searching for a man
who on Tuesday slashed Richard
Bryan, 37, a CTS bus driver, when
informed that Euclid and Alvason
aves. is not a transfer stop.
While horrified, passengers
looked on, the irate passenger at
tacked Bryan with a switch-knife,
and, when the driver attempted to
escape his assailant by running
into the yard of the Flynn-Froelk
funeral home followed and slashed
Bryan as he raised his arm to
sheild his face. The man then ran
west and escaped.
Bryan, who resides at 6124 Glass
ave., N.E., was treated at Huron
Road Hospital.
This 'N That
From time to time this column
has bemoaned the littered streets
and public places of our fair city.
The problem reached into the City
Commission Tuesday night when
Commissioner Walter H. Sutter
asked what the city could do, and
what other cities are doing, to
maintain a neat appearance.
Mr. Sutter commented that
there are towns noticeably clean
and East Cleveland should be one
of them.
Maybe there is something the
city can do about it. Maybe there
is something business can do about
it. But when it comes right down
to the source, it is the ’violator,
John Q. Public who can and who
should do something about this
civic problem.
Just take a glance at most any
sidewalk, any street, Mny park,
any playground, or any public
vehicle. Whence that litter? Be
cause of the carelessness or the in
difference of the people who have
been there.
This problem of a cleaner city
can be met when each resident
accepts it as his own personal
responsibility. It could come to
pass that violators could be made
to feel rather uncomfortable.
The city has 33 waste contain
ers about town. It is adding four
more at a cost of $34 each. Why
not use them for those bits of
paper now tossed wherever one
happens to be ... or tuck them
into purse or pocket until one
meets up with a waste paper bas
ket. Ninety-nine times out of a
hundred they are less weighty than
the cigarette or the candy bar they
covered. All that is required is
determination, perseverance and
Naturally there will be scatter
ings of leaves, street dust, etc., but
this alone would be far better than
the dozens of discarded items that
now litter our streets.
While waiting with interest for
the city’s report of what other
communities are doing to keep neat
and clean, let’s get busy in our own
individual way. Any suggestions?

Kiwanis Chairman Bob Kerr re
ports 115 boxes of peanuts dis
tributed to the business houses on
Monday, to start off the National
Kids Day observance.
Friday night the Kiwanis carry
their campaign to Shaw Stadium
where the two friendly rivals,
Shaw and Collinwood are playing
their annual grid game. Al Seigal,
the new concessionaire at the Sta
dium is lending his full co-opera
tion to the peanut invasion. Fans
are reminded to be prepared.
“Every penny of the money re
ceived here in this National Kids
Day campaign is spent in East
Cleveland”, declares Kiwanis Na
tional Kids Day chairman. “It sup
ports a dental and milk program
in the schools, it sends boys to
camp, it aids the school safety pro
gram of the city’s police depart
ment, it means continuing support
of the city’s biggest single boys’
organization, the YMCA”.
Newest in its gifts to the YMCA
is a check for $300 with which to
equip a workshop where boys and
their parents can work together,

Cites Seven
Fire Hazards
In The Home
In connection with the annual
Home Inspections by the East
Cleveland Fire Department start
ing Monday, September 28th, Fire
Chief Fred W. Lang today speci
fied seven hazards which records
reveal, account for the most home
fires. He also adds a note of pre
vention with each one, as follows:
1. Careless smoking and hand
ling of matches. Make sure ciga
rettes and matches are out
throwing them away—and
smoke in bed!
2. Misuse of electricity,
wiring. Follow operating directions
for appliances and know the “safe
load” limits of your electric cir
3. Defective and overheated
heating equipment, stoves and
lanterns. Inspect and clean period
ically, always keep these items in
good working order.
4. Careless handling of kero
sene, gasoline and other flammable
liquids. Never kindle stove or fur
nace fires with kerosene. Use only
approved metal containers if flam
mable liquids must be stored in
the house, dry cleaning with gaso
line and the like is not only old
fashioned, it’s deathly.
5. Bad housekeeping habits.
Clear attics, closets, basements of
papers, rags, old furniture because
rubbish is fuel that fire loves.
6. Defective or overheated chim
neys and flues. Check, clean and
repair regularly. Get rid of flam
mable wood shingle roofs.
7. Children and matches. The
smart parent keeps matches and
lighters out of the reach of curi
ous youngsters and teaches older
children how to use fire making
tools safely.

Only 24 Cases
To Last Night
After a lapse of two weeks the
East Cleveland Rent Board sched
uled a meeting for last Wednesday
evening. Up to this time the Board
had received 24 complaints and has
marked “finis” to most of them.
City Law Director A. E. Grif
fith, a member, reports that no
real difficulties have confronted
the board and congratulated land
lords and tenants in the 24 cases
for the fine way in which they
have co-operated to meet a com
mon ground of agreement.
The .last night’s meeting was
too late for a report today, since
the Leader goes to press on Wed
In some cases the board has
found the rent increase justified.
In other cases it has persuaded
landlords to be more reasonable,
and they have agreed. In a few
instances one formal complaint has
represented a number of tenants
in the same building, their griev
ance being similar.

Cardinals Favored
In Annual Contest
With Railroaders
Football is well underway in the scholastic ranks but
as far as East Cleveland and Northeast Cleveland fans are
concerned the only game of importance this week will take
place tomorrow night (Friday) at Shaw Stadium.
It’s the 26th renewal of the Collinwood-Shaw neighbor
hood classic with kick-off time set at 8:15 p. m.
Some 10,000 fans or more are
expected to jam the popular East
Cleveland gridiron plant with the
Cardinals slight favorites over the
In the 25 games played to date
Collinwood has won 12, Shaw 11
and two games have ended in ties.
The Railroaders will be out to pro
tect their slim victory margin
while the Cards will be gunning
to tie the count and post their first
verdict since 1947.
Despite the fact that Shaw is
rated a slight edge over the Five
Pointers anything can happen
and has in past games between
the two schools.
Coach Bob Cawrse was pleased
with his charges following last Fri.
day’s 15-0 conquest over West
High. On the otherhand Coach
Charley Hofelich wasn’t dissatis
fied because his Railroaders were
sidetracked 33-0 by Warren in
their opener.
Warren took advantage of Col
linwood’s inexperience and jump
ed ahead in the first half. How
ever, after the intermission the
Collinwood eleven perked up and
battled the out-of-towners on even
“It will take a couple of games
before our boys are really sure of
themselves” said Hofelich “and
they may surprise many of us be
fore the season’s end”. Of the 33
boys on the Railroaders squad,
only 12 are seniors, including but
three lettermen.
Shaw’s shutout victory over
West clearly indicated that Coach
Bob Cawrse was right about his
team. The Cowboys finished the
game with minus nine yards in
“We should be good on defense
and improve as we go along on
offense” remarked Cawrse during
the pre-season workouts.
Eleven monogram winners dot
the Shaw line-up with six on the
Card’s defensive unit, explaining
their strength in this department
Next week both schools open
league action with Shaw playing
host to Parma’s Lake Erie new
comers on Friday while Collin
wood meets East Tech at Patrick
Henry on Saturday.
From what we hear, a couple of
surprises are due during tomor
row’s half-time intermission and
we suggest that you hold your
seats for the big show. The Sta
dium Box Office will open at
7 p. m.
