Business: 814 East 152nd Street Phone: Glenville I 4383 News: 14600 Euclid Avenue Apt. 302 480 Get Free Chest X-Ray First Day 11 Day Goal 7500 Ths Christmas Seal x-ray buses have rolled into East Cleveland and the annual chest x-ray pro gram for the detection of Tuber culosis is now under way. The buses, which offer free chest x-rays to all persons 15 years of age and over, will remain in this community through Saturday, June 9th. Proving that the people who work to make the chest x-ray program a success are firm believ ers in the program, Miss Barthold, chairman of the East Cleveland x-ray survey, was one of the first visitors to the x-ray unit on Mon day. Miss Barthold, who has spent many hours in the planning for this year’s visit by the x-ray buses said “I know that this work is very important to all of the people of East Cleveland and I am cer tain that I would’t want the x ray bus to visit here and leave before I had the opportunity to have my x-ray. I know that I want to be among those who take advantage of this very wonderful health service.” The goal for this year’s pro gram, which is being conducted at eight different locations, is 7,500 persons. However, Dr. James P. Winkler, Director of Health for East Cleveland, has called on the people of-this community to better this goal and he has asked at least 10,000 persons take advant age of this free health service. According to reports now avail able, a total of 480 persons took advantage of the x-ray Service on the opening day of the campaign, when the bus was located at Eu clid and Hower. A special word of. praise has been released by Mrs. Maurice Barnes, 18335 Euclid ave., chair man of the volunteers. Accord ing to Mrs. Barnes, the volunteers are on the job with the x-ray units and are doing much to make this x-ray survey a smooth run ning operation. Mrs. Barnes point ed out that the clerks at the units are volunteers and they will be giving their services to the people of East Cleveland during the entire time the mobile x-ray Reservations Now For Vacation School Reservations- are now being accepted for the annual Vacation Church School to be held beginning June 11th and through June 22nd at Calvary Lutheran Church, Euclid at Lock wood aves.

Mrs. Sprouse is the former Doro thy Magneson. Your chest x-ray could save YOUR life. rm 8 emnnnnnrj i THIS THAT I In East Cleveland Something new has been added to Mrs. Carl Brown’s few days old car. It’s a neat green and white plastic litter bag which dangles handily from the dashboard ashtray. Its wide open top welcomes every bit of litter that comes its way. “It not only keeps the car neat” com ments Mrs. Brown, “but it’s nothing at all to empty it into a container in the garage.” And much simpler than to brush seats and sweep floors and gather the stuff together and carry it away. (Here’s a hint for bazaar-minded folks looking for ideas ... the litter bag came from a church bazaar). As an example of what can be accomplished in the way of beauti fication of property in a compara tively brief period, take a good look at the yard at East Cleve land Congregational Church. The educational wing was finished last year and this year all the torn up area is a bloom with spring blossoms and budding shrubbery. It’s one of the city’s beauty spots. Definitely no one is now solicit ing funds for the Little League. If such a person calls on you, call the police. buses are in this community. In calling attention to the fact that many East Clevelanders should take advantage of the x-ray service, Dr. Winkler said, “Let us not forget that tuberculosis is infectious.” He went on to say, “The greatest danger of its spread probably lies with the undiscov ered, unsuspected, untreated, active cases still at large in every com munity. The one way you can help in the discovery of these unknown cases of tuberculosis is to take personal advantage of the free x-ray service.” Girls Capture Science Awards Two girls of the Shaw June 1956 Class walked off with the top science awards this graduating time.
