What Are Teenagers
Doing Outside Of
School, Asks PTA
The W. H. Kirk Junior High
School PTA, in a city wide'project,
is going to find out what children
are doing outside of school hours.
The project will be initiated at a
conference in Kirk music room at
8:00 .m., Wednesday, October 14.
The meeting is open to all parents
and to the public.
i will lead the meting starting the
community project. The project’s
i purpose is to uncover the problems
and assess the resources for teen
age activities in East Cleveland.
From the conference meeting Dr.
Wallen expects to find the ma
1 terial for three or four additional
meetings which will directly tackle
problems and spotlight assets of
fered by East Cleveland for whole
some teen-age activity.
Since considerable time is neces
sary for the evaluation of the ma
terial that will be gathered at this
first meeting the following meet
ings are being scheduled for Jan
uary, February and March of 1954.
Doctor Wallen also conducts a
TV program which has won a na
tional award and recognition as
the first TV study program with
college credit. This program, on
general psychology, is carried by
station WEWS.
Dr. Wallen has worked out a
unique approach to get the facte
directly from the parents.
The meeting is divided into three
2-minute periods, as follows:
(1) Explaining procedure. Ac
tion parents can take to help in
the solution of any problems that
may be uncovered.
(2) Division of parents into
small groups, each under a trained
“reporter.” Discussion of areas of
interest and decision of three most
important matters they want to
tackle. Reporter will phrase and
present decision to Dr. Wallen. If
any group is unable to arrive at
agreement the minority may re
port separately at the close of dis
cussion period.
(3) Dr. Wallen will evaluate the
items, to be listed on a chart, and
show in what way they should be
Thus by group action the ex
perience and observation of hun
dreds of parents as to what the
teen-age problems are in East
Cleveland will be spotlighted.
With recognition of the prob
lems and possibilities for teen
agers Dr. John Culber, Professor
at Case Institute of Technology
and his program committee with
the council of Doctor Wallen, will
be able to select the experts who
can tell parents how to meet these
problems and how to make the
most of available possibilities.
Doctor Culver who conceived the
series of programs says, “while we
assume that some of the problems
which we may uncover will be
common to many communities we
also expect that there will be some
problems peculiar to East Cleve
land. Through this series with par
ents we will not only recognize our
problems but will have expert ad
vice on what action to take and
will be able to enlist the help of
our very active service organiza
tions in providing the help to make
East Cleveland a better city for
our children.”
Representatives of several civic
groups have indicated unofficially
their interest in this study and
their willingness to assist in action
recommended by PTA.
Doctor John Culver will act as
moderator. After initiating the
project in the first meeting Dr.
Wallen will remain as consultant
on all future steps in the program.
Mothers Awaitl Library Hour
Mayfair and Chambers Pre
School Mothers are anticipating
with pleasure the resuming of their
once-a-month Library program, as
the wee folk enjoy their story
hour at North Branch Library,
1481 Hayden ave., under the direc
tion of Miss Jean Hoffman, chil
dren’s librarian.
Their first get-together for this,
their second season, will be on
Wednesday, October 14th when
they will hear the first of a three
series talks by Miss Elenor Custer
of the Health Center. Miss Custer
will disci's child behaviour and
personality problems. The time is
10:30 a. m.

Be sure your

This year’s Pre-School Chair
men, Mrs. B. E. Blakely of May
fair and Mrs. Ray Nausner of
Chambers are confident that, due
to the success of the Mothers Hour,
the attendance for this coming sea
son will exceed that of last year.
Mrs. Elna Hukari, North Branch
Library librarian and the school
chairmen are personally contacting
every Pre-School and Kindergarten
mother. An invitation is also ex
tended to the mothers of Grammar
School age pupils as this year’s
topics are aimed for all parents,
regardless of the age of the child.
This Mother’s Hour originated
with Mrs. Hukari, who believed
that many mothers would be in
terested in discussing mutual prob
lems while waiting around the li
brary, or shopping, while their
children were having their story
hour. This once-a-month program
with talks by persons prominent in
their respective field were then de
veloped by Mrs. Hukari and the
Pre-school chairmen of Mayfair
and Chambers PTA. The first
year topics dealt with the physical
well being of the child. This year’s
topics will emphasize the mental
development of the child and the
mothers role.™

Convicted drunken drivers and
owners of abandoned ice boxes or
similar containers will find stiff
penalties awaiting them under
newly enacted legislation. The
items made up two important ac
tions on the part of the City Com
missioners Tuesday evening.
In keeping with recently enacted
state legislation, the city amended
its traffice ordinance to include
the three day “must” penalty for
every convicted drunken driver.
The violator can be fined in addi
tion to the jail sentence.
Need Permit To
Remove A Tree
There is quite a bit of detail
the removing of a tree which
not at first apparent to the prop
erty owner. These deal with the
safety of the neighborhood and the
repair of any damage
might occur to sidewalk or
during a tree removal.
Persons removing trees
tree lawns or from a yard
the falling tree might damage
sidewalk or street, are required to
first obtain from the city an Ob
struction Permit. They must also
deposit $25 with which the city will
repair the damage, if any.
It is recommended that any per
son planning the removal of a tree
have it done by a reliable tree com
pany. Such a company not only
has all necessary equipment, but
employs trained men and carries
property insurance.
Where a falling tree might ob
struct or hazard traffic, the city will
set up a block. In such cases the
Fire Department is notified of the
presence of the block and how long
it will be in effect. Thus in the
event of a fire in neighborhood,
the department can still quickly
reach the scene of the fire.

As for ice boxes, the city ordi
nance is similar to that being en
acted by municipalities following
tragedies in which children have
suffocated when using the aban
doned boxes during play.
The ordinance makes it unlaw
ful for any person, firm or cor
poration to have anywhere on its
property or in an unoccupied build
ing, in a place accessible to chil
dren, an abandoned icebox or
siriiilar container which has an air
tight door, snaplock or other de
vice which prevents opening the
door from the inside, without first
removing such locks or the door.
The penalty is a fine up to $500
