“Your child received the first

The third or final injection

ECBA Gets Clean
Up Progress Report
The Clean-up Campaign of East
Cleveland is being brought to the
attention of all groups within the
Tuesday evening Jack Wise, the
ECBA representative on the com
mittee made a report to that or
ganization. Mr. Wise said he was
amazed at the committee detailed
planning and follow-up plans to
make Ea^t Cleveland a neater ap
pearing city.
His special message to ECBA
members came in an appeal to
clean-up their premises on all
sides, to refrain from stuffing the
wrong waste in the city’s street
waste receptables (as was reported
in at the Clean-up Committee ses
sion) and to extend the sweeping
of their sidewalks to include the
gutter in front of their stores.
ECBA already keeps close tab
on store fronts and display win
dows, reminding members of any
slack in this respect.
In the meanwhile the East Clean
up Committee program is pro
gressing aq is evidenced by the
clearing of a few heavily littered
vacant lots.

unpaid parking tickets. It is ex

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

Deny Parking
Dry Cleaning
Zone Appeals
Of the eight cases to .come
before the Thursday, April 21st
zoning session at City Hall, three
and a portion of a fourth appeal
were approved two were denied
and two were continued.
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
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.

"No Gang War
Here": Weaver
“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.

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. Selections from
Rodgers and Kammerstein’s “State

and four “Rumanian Gypsy

Then comes the Band and every
East Clevelander knows the thrill
whenever it starts playing. They
lead off with the “Band of

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

descriptive pieces, Victor Herbert’s
immortal “March of the Toys”
from “Babes in Toyland,” and
Leroy Anderson’s “Sandpaper Bal

The evening’s finale will be a
