From the Police Department eomes a total of 5660 parking violations with 5172 tickets paid void. This leaves a backlog of 488 unpaid parking tickets. It is ex plained that the First Quarter normally carries a larger number of unpaid tickets due to the fact that new license tags are issued during this period, meaning that it takes longer ,in many instance, to contact the violator. Violators, it is explained, are usually given a 10 day leeway in which to pay a parking ticket after which a notice is mailed to them. If there is no response with in a month, a final notice brings a visitor to the violators door—an officer with a warrant. The city’s salt bill for the period will be down a bit.

Denied was the appeal of the Penn Sanitary Laundry and Dry Cleaning, Inc., Uf erect a building at 15013 Euclid ave. to be occupied by its own business and a florist shop. The request brought up two points against the appeal. Present zoning lists this type of business for a light manufacturing (U4) zone while the site desired is in a retail (U3) zone. Furthermore the property owners did not want a dry cleaning business nor a laundry in their neighborhood. Denied also was the appeal of The Economy Buick Co. to place a public-employee parking lot for customers and employees of the company on two lots on Hower ave. While appreciating the heed for off-street parking, the request was not permitted, since, here again, the site and type of busi ness did not go together. Park ink lots in conjunction with a business are only permitted in a retail zone. The desired lot is zoned for residential use only. Neighboring property owners opposed the appeal. Approved was the appeal of the Grant Builders Inc. to erect four suite apartments on each of three Coventry rd. lots. Plans are similar to their one apartment erection granted the previous week. One of the two outdoor phone booths requested by the Ohio Bell Telephone Co. was granted, one denied. Granted is a booth at the City Parking lot, Hawley Park. Denied was a booth to be set up in the island at the intersection of Phillips ave and Hayden ave., in Pattison Park. Granted was transfer of a room ing house license to Thomas E. Launders, from Rose and Raymond Gnuschke, 1823 Alvason rd. Continued was the appeal of Mrs. A. Nowarskas for authority to locate a tavern at 1368 East 152nd st. (at Coit) in accordance with requirements of the State of Ohio D2 and C2 licenses. Many neighboring property owners were present to object to the appeal on grounds of bringing undesirable people into the area, and causing a traffic problem. Continued was the request of Joseph Ostro to construct a two story building with exterior on the lot line at 1540 E9uclid ave. As a safety measure the code prohibits windows in such walls. However, the line abuts a private drive to Richmond place, eliminating the usual fire hazard. Neighbors expressed the desire to know more about the plans and hearing.

Farther, an augmented talents for the evening, offering East Clevelanders not two, but three professionally competent con ductors. Director of Music S. Robert Fraser and Vocal Music Director Miss Margery Shields will be as sisted this year by Mr. Ernest Miller, who already holds musical degrees from the Cleveland In stitute of Music and Michigan State College (now a University), but is now taking musical educa tion work at Western Reserve to obtain an Ohio professional teach ing certificate. Mr. Miller appeared with a number of orchestral and band combinations in theater and "No Gang War Here": Weaver in “There will be no gang war East Cleveland. We will not toler ate it.” This is the ultimatum handed down by Chief of Police H. S. Weaver after police on Friday eve ning, April 22nd, nipped in the bud a planned meeting of opposing^ forces from this city and the Col linwood area. Instead the East Cleveland 22 boya suddenly found themselves in police court, and were further surprised when their parents began walking in. The adults had been summoned quickly by police. In the meanwhile, working on the same tip, Cleveland police rounded up the Collinwood gang. As a result 11 of these teen agers are slated to appear in Juvenile Court May 9th. All the East Cleveland boys were released to the custody of their parents after being warned that a second offence of what ever nature, would bring a Juven ile Court filing. School authorities, furnished the list of the boys, have also inter viewed them, reports Shaw Prin cipal, Wayne C. Blough. As a result of the incident, which was finished before it began, due to tips, Chief of Police Weaver offers this advise to parents of all growing girls and boys: “Kno*w where your children are, what they are doing, with whom they associate, and require them to be at honie at a reason ble hour.” Sawed off baseball 4ats and other weapons were confiscated by police. Why ths particular gangbattle? Its the age old answer—a girl. The purported leader of the gang is an 18-year old who is said to have never attended Shaw High School and does not reside in the Collinwood area. the Fourth Annual East Cleveland Ball CALL NEWS 10 ^7. 7 Music To Ring In Shaw Gym Next Thursday E-. than it is for this next Thursday. In the first place, every grade school child who plans to go ac companied by an adult gets a free ticket at school and adults can buy their 75c tickets either at the door or from one of the partici pating Shaw students. Incidentally, the instrumental people and the vocal people try to outsell each others. This year its the boys against the girls in the race for ticket selling honors. There is hint of a dinner for the victors. Leading off the evening of melody and harmony will be the Shaw Ofthestra.

The purchase by just such they will be week. Their Then comes the Band and every East Clevelander knows the thrill whenever it starts playing. They lead off with the “Band of America” March,” by Lavalie. This is to be followed by Dukas’ amus ing ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” based on a German legend by Goethe. Children may recognize this as having been the accompaniment of one of the Mickey Mouse numbers in “Fantasia” some years ago. Next come “American Red Cross March” by Panella, and “Estrel lita” by Ponce followed by two descriptive pieces, Victor Herbert’s immortal “March of the Toys” from “Babes in Toyland,” and Leroy Anderson’s “Sandpaper Bal let,” which is guaranteed to send shivers down some spines.
