Local Girl Wins
Three Firsts At
Scottish Games
On Saturday, August 18th at the
Cleveland Scottish Games held at
Euclid Beach Park, Margaret Cal
lander took first prize in the Best
Dress competition, first prize in
the Highland Fling and first prize
in the Shean Trews. This is the
first time she has competed' since
winning the 1st prize in the High
land Fling last year at the Edin
burgh Scotland International Fes
tival. At that time she also won
second prize in the Sword Dance,
second prize in the Shean Trews
and took second place in the Over
seas Championship.
Margaret is the daughter of
Scottish born Pipe-Major Robert
Scott Callander and Mrs. Callander
of 1264 East 137th st.
Her success in the various com
petitions both local and abroad
can be attributed to her teacher
Mr. Andrew Steven who was born
in Scotland and also danced there.
Besides dancing herself, Mar
garet, has 20 pupils under her
supervision ranging in age from 5
years to 18 years—all of whom for
the most part are medalists. As a
dancing group their winnings on
Saturday totaled four first prizes,
three second prizes and three
third prizes. These boys and girls
hail from East Cleveland, Euclid,
South Euclid, Lakewood, Parma
Northeast Cleveland, Elyria, Lor
ain and Akron.
Margaret is a recognized teacher

member of the Highland Dancing
Specialists Association of Glasgow

American entrees, chicken, sweet
corn and tomatoes. Alf is pleased.
His new Mom is a good cook.
Alf arrived in New York City
on Saturday morning, August 10th,
with 657 other young men and
women from 19 foreign countries
and had the afternoon and
evening to take in at least a few
of the highspots of this great city
of the world. He was thrilled with
the^view from the top of the Em
pire Building in the dusk of the
evening as the lights began to
flicker and shine across the wide
expanse visible from that high
vantage point.
Alf also had the opportunity to
visit Pittsburgh, the American
city which in the past decade has
practically made itself over, pre
senting a dazzling urban setting.
The entire cross-country trip via
bus brought him to Cleveland to
his home for the next ten months.
While Alf will be a senior at
Shaw High this winter, his stud

his chief reason for W'anting to
come to America: "to meet the

Route 20 Group Would
Keep It Tourist Highway:
Protest Proposed Change
A threat to change Euclid avenue’s long, scenic and
busy inter-state highway into a lightly traveled local
thoroughfare has stirred the year old Route 20 Associa
tion into prompt and definite atcion.
Headed by Karl Brown, the Association is an incor
porated non-profit organization aimed at keeping Route 20
a tourist’s highway. It was formed a year ago by business
men who earn their livelihood from Route 20 tourist traffic
and membership includes businessmen from East Cleve
land, Cleveland, Euclid and Western Lake County.
“As of now we are atten
recruit new members” sai
dent Brown, “especially since the
imminent construction of a system
of freeways in Northern Ohio is
a definite throat to Euclid avenue
as a whole.”
Members of the group and
guests met Monday night in
Painesville to adopt a plan of
action to “preserve Route 20 as
a tourist highway.”
This meeting co-incided with
another meeting that could pave
the wave for changing Route 20.
The latter came up as the Council
of Painesville passed an ordinance
which offered the State consent
and cooperation in the construc
tion of the Lakeland Expressway
through the northern part of the
“The Painesville action” said
Brown “could easily lead to diver
sion of all through traffic over the
Lakeland Freeway from the center
of Lake County right on through
Brown’s group thoroughly dis
cussed the above possibility and
adopted a resolution that the
group “go on record as favoring
limited access highways parallell
ling Route 20 which would be des
ignated to carry trucks and local
business traffic and that the pres
ent Route 20 be improved and
remain on the prosent route.*
Walter Green, chairman of the
Lake County Commissioners spoke
to the group, outlining construction
plans of the Lakeland Expressway.
The new road would connect with
the Lakeland Freeway at the Cuy
ahoga County line and meet Route
20 at Painesville's famous “Cal
amity Curve,” just east of the city.
The County spokesman told the
group that some people were of
the opinion that the expressway's
construction would serve as a by
pass route to Cleveland.
He further expressed an opinion
that people in a hurry would take
the expressway route. However, he
felt, vacationers would prefer bo
travel along old Route 20’s scenic
