A movie on the new vaccine,
gamma globulin, will be an impor
tant part of the usual Mothers
March briefing session this year.
This meeting, at which volunteers
receive their supplies, identifica
tion tags and instructions, and ask
questions which may be in their
minds since the previous drive, will
be held Wednesday, January 20th,
at 2 p. m. in Shaw High School
auditorium. (Second door south
from Euclid in Shaw building, Eu
clid at Prospect ave.)
Any East Clevelander who has
volunteered to serve in the cam
paign and Who has Hot been con
fected by her captain, please call
Chairman Addams, U. 1-7248—
during the morning or evening
Chairman Stanton Addams says
fMs movie offers valuable informa
tion on the vaccine which this year
for the first time is to be given
to one million second grade chil
dren throughout the United Stated.
Since Ohio was third in the num
ber of polio cases in 1953 it is ex
pected that some Ohio children will
be included in this field test, ac
cording to Richard L. Kroesen,
Ohio State chairman of the March
of Dimes.
In East Cleveland
A Reminder: East Cleveland has
its Mothers March for polio Thurs
day, January 28th. Be certain some
one will be at home at jfour house
that night to greet the volunteer
who will call between 7 and 8
No fewer than 12 phone calls
poured into the fire department
Sunday as fire broke out in a Tay
lor rd. apartment building. In sev
eral instances there was delay be
cause the caller did not have the
correct phone number. Here it is:
LI. 1-1212. Chief Fred W. Lang
urges everyone to post the number
near the telephone.
Local concern over the juvenile
delinquency situation brings speak
ers to two groups here soon. John
J. Mayar, chief probation officer
of the Cuyahoga County Juvenile
Court talks it over with the Y
Mothers next Thursday. Miss
Mary Neary of the county’s juven
ile staff discusses the problem with
the Womans’ Board of Huron Road
Hospital next Monday. Juvenile
delinquency is on a slow upgrade
here. It will be wise for parents
to keep alert.
The fact that there are but four
changes in the 1954 Mothers March
captain list from 1953, reflects the
strong organization which Chair
man Stanton Addams has achieved
for polio drives. The four have
been replaced and two new ones
added to make 31 captains in all.
All the same vice chairman and co
chairman will be marching.

Shaw’s new projector and screen
will be used for the showing of this
important film from the National
Foundation for Infantile paralysis.
Judge Addams reminds that the
March of Dimes is the only means
of raising funds for the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.
The overall goal this year is 25
million more dollars to carry on
the vaccine program, together with
continuing aid to the 60,000 Amer
ican polio victims.
In 1953 East Cleveland contri
buted $15000. It is hoped this peak
will be topped this year.
A unique interest binds the East
Cleveland March of Dimes yearly
endeavor. Judge Stanton Addams
will count his fifth year as cam
paign chairman. All but four of
last year’s captains will be back to
head teams this year. Two new

tions offered by Robert McGraw
of the committee:
1. Correct existing inequities
among teachers who have had
16 years or more teaching ex
perience in East Cleveland.
2. When teachers attain tenure,
they should receive compen
sation for any additional de
gree beyond the bachelor’s
3. In line with the platform of
the National Education Asso
ciation and the Ohio Educa
tion Association that advoc
ate a differential of more
than two to one between max
imum and starting salaries,
we feel the maximum should
be increased to $5800 as of
January 1st, 1954.
4. In line with the aforemen
tioned we feel that each
teacher in the East Cleveland
system should receive an ad
1 ditional increment of $150 ef

far off form. Winder tallied but
one field goal and two free throws
against Lakewood whereas he had
averaged 19 points per game in six
previous contests.
Lanky Ernie Chistoff is a ser
ious scoring threat and could mean
trouble for the shorter Cardinals.
While the Wisecupmen will be
ahead in experience, the Panthers
will carry a definite height advant

Euclid starters stretch well over
the 6 foot 2 inch mark. Rounding
out the starting five are Dick
Sleith, Dave Douglas and George
Lack of height has been no handi

shortness with speed, spirit and
Parma’s Redmen gave the locals
a real tussle and for a while it

Cards perked up to pull away in
the final period. Bill Whitacre and
Jack Hanson provided the spark
as they bucketed seven two point

Smoking Catties
Apartment Fire
Carelessness with smoking is
said by Chief Fred W. Lange to
have caused the $7500 fire which
early Sunday morning, January 10
routed residents of 24-suito
Royal Manor, 1849 Ta„.jr rd.
The flames originated in the
third-floor apartment of Douglas
Robinson, 40, who is in Huron Road
Hospital with first ree burns
about the face, head, s.—alders and
right arm. When his exit was
blocked through the one apartment
door leading into the hallway,
Robinson hung out as far as pos
sible through a window from where
firemen rescued him. Robinson is
employed at the Euclid- Taylor
In his efforts to aid his neighbor,
Theodore Swanson, occupying the
apartment across the hall, left his
own door open as he removed the
door to the Robinson apartment.
Invited by this draft, the flames
shot out and into the doorway of
the Swanson apartment occupied
by Swanson and his wife.
While the blaze was under con
trol within an hour, local and Cleve
