Name Address J- 4 &£ -w Special Events Help Boost Polio Fund Polio parties and projects, com plementing personal contributions in the current emergency drive here to send the total near the $1,500-mark so far, reached fever pitch this week, with no indica tions of abatement until the con- elusion of the campaign next week. One of the earliest and most intrepid twosomes to do their bit were the Heisler girls, Rosalind and Melanie, who are shown above at their front-yard business estab lishment at 14808 Dover ave. sell ing lemonade to a host of youth ful customers. Rosalind, 11, who is pouring the fambrosia at a nickel a glass, has more than a passing interest in the outcome of the drive. She was a polio victim herself in the ’49 outbreak. Her -year old sister is at her side holding the tumbler. They are daughters of the Robert R. Heis lers, one of the most active couples in polio campaigns. More than a dozen new neigh borhood undertakings are on the calendar in the immediate past, present, and future. One of the most pretentious events this week is the Auburn dale avenue carnival and street fair Saturday night, to be held on the newly concreted used car lot at 12645 Euclid ave.

It is be ing keyed to appeal especially to neighbors in the westerly end of town. With $150 already in their col lective pockets for polio, children and adults of the Bryn Mawr Euclid area climaxed their efforts with a dajice and bazaar last night. Under the sponsorship of a local dairy in that section and its head, J. M. Peer, four girls were ringleaders of the effort: Jerry Freise, Donna May Korecky, Joan Marino, and Irma Biliter. Last night also found neighbor hood friends of Mrs. Herbert Tucker’s invited to her home at 13424 Forest Hill ave. for a bene fit bridge party. This evening Mr. Tucker, with the same objective in mind, plays host to his poker club. Stanwood rd. and Euclid ave. was one of the busiest of corners Monday afternoon. Seventh grad ers at Christ the King school, Elaine Batteiger and Peggy Jones of 1851 and 1824 Stanwood, re spectively, and Patricia Hammond of 1847 Burnette, sold cookies to all comers. —$65.63. homemade Net profit broke out Carnival rash here initially among a group of young sters at the top of Superior hill and was quickly followed by pre sentation of a playlet by three Hillcrest ave. children: Loretta Ross, Karla Fromin, and Ruth Lynn Rosen. The fund is richer by $20. amount was raised last children on East 134th Patricia Lough at the A like week by st., with helm. Another purse, fat with polio pennies, was turned in by East 135th st. youngsters who staged a wild animal show .. with their own tame pets as Exhibits A, B, and a balloon sale. George Poor m.c.’d the event. The young sters were Kenny Eastburn, Anita Eastbum, Jerry Poor, Billy Blan chard, David Aumend, Laurel Au ment and Gil Dayton. The show was at the Eastbum home at 1410 East 135th st. Wadena ave., lined with life long residents and thus lacking man-power among the younger generation, not to be outdone, col lected a fifty-dollar purse last week. Ballet, magic tricks, drama, and vft drinks spelled 75 more fori the fund this week, thanks to small and medium-sized fry from Chapman ave. Their proceeds were realized at an August 27th back yard fun-fest, when Richard Schukneckt, Garry DeWyer, Patty Peterson, Eddie Wright, Jimmy Grubb, (who not long ago had polio), and Dorothy Bremner rounded out the cast. Another “at home” party the last week of August was Mrs. Adrian Stiles’ affair at her home on Windermere st. Guests con tributed $16.75 to polio. Through the hostess’ efforts, the Golden Age club of East Cleveland also donated a $42 purse.

School bells will ring through out East Cleveland next Tuesday morning, calling some 5,500 pupils back to books and classrooms. This anticipated enrollment for ’54-’55 means an over-all increase of roughly 300 pupils. At the close of the school year in June East Cleveland’s total was 5,206. Included in the anticipated new fall figure, according to the Super Jntend.v.t of East Cleveland J'ubT lie 3ciiools, Dr. O. J. Korb. are pupils new to the system, either as transfers, new residents, or tuition students. Of the latter, Dr. Korb, re ported, the school system neces sarily limits the number in both junior and senior high divisions, so that the teacher-pupil ratio in the secondary schools are kept within reason. A portion of the loss of 211 graduates in the June, ’54, class at Shaw High School will be ab sorbed by the 550-600 youngsters expected to enroll in kindergarten next week, he said.

They are holding a reunion, be ginning at 8 p.m., in the Ameri can Legion Hall, at Euclid ave. and Taylor rd. Husbands or “other attachments,” as the committee-in charge expresses it, are urged to join the graduates. Ex-class officers are organizing the eve”*: Allan Lynn, who served as pre lent Mark Morris, vice president, and Ruth Gerstenberger, secretary-treasurer. There will be a slight admission charge to defray the cost of re hments i 1 meeting place, ex plains the committee, inasmuch as the class has no standing funds. An “all clear” signal has been awarded the algae condition at the lake in Forest Hill Park. That is the latest word from the City Engineering Department, which has been conducting a daily check on the lake’s surface since the first operation to check the algae was performed the latter part of July. City Engineer Malcolm S. Doug las considers “the treatment has been very effective.” In a detailed survey made over the week-end the department found no trace of the previous scum. “The lake has cleared,” stated Mr. Douglas, “with the exception of one spot, but we have ascer tained that that is vegetation and not algae.” Zoning Board Met Tuesday At Tuesday morning’s meeting the East Cleveland Board of Zon ing Appeals, in conjunction with the Board of Building Code Ap peals, passed a trio of requests, rejected one, and continued one. The appeal of Mrs. Elsie A. Kirbus for permission to rent one second-floor and one third-floor suite in her home at 1849 Alvason rd. was granted. Request of transfer of a room ing house license from a former owner to the present owner, John F. Groves, 1825 Wymore ave., also received an “aye” vote from the board. Similar action was taken on the request of Mrs. Vincent J, Mont ville to house a foster child at her residence, 1676 Carlyon rd. This case has been reviewed and recom mended by county welfare authori ties. Rejected was the bid of Manford T. Thomas to continue use of his single family dwelling at 1822 Wellesley st. as a two-family home. According to the city, the second dwelling unit was installed with out a permit. Under further consideration until the board’s next meeting is the appeal of the Shaw Avenue Church of Christ to use the prop erty at 13205 Shaw ave. for Sun day School purposes.

The chemicals used are harmless to humans, animals and fish. If the contamination should re appear, the city will employ more drastic measures to combat the scum. A charger would be in stalled to force a continuous flow of chemicals into the water, ac cording to Mr. Douglas. Two causes for the condition are possible. Either the algae is merely the result of some surface contamination, or an unknown sewage connection emptying into one of the three sewers of the lake may be present. A survey of the storm sewers showed this flow is not in itself a possible source of contamination, the department found. Banquet For Boys To Be On September 22 Final arrangements are now being made for the Second Annual East Cleveland Little Leagues Inc. Banquet which will be held at Shaw High School on Wednesday evening, Sepember 22nd.

A souvenir program will also be prepared and presented to all who attend which will contain all the pitching, batting and fielding records. Because of the limited seating capacity in the Shaw High Cafe teria, the attendance will be lim ited to 450 persons. This means that parents of the boys who played on Little League and Pony League teams as well as the play ers and parents of the Minor League champions will be taken care of on a first come—first served basis. Letters will be mailed to each boy who took in the East Cleveland base program this summer with an attached form which parents may use to make banquet reservations.
