ladies. She phoned to tell us about
her new young neighbor who has
quickly won the admiration of the
older folk of the neighborhood. On
a recent snowy day tha 13-year
old came to her rescue as she
trudged home with groceries. On
another occasion he gave a helping
hand with a rubbish can.
“There still are fine young
young folks” comments the lovely
iady, adding, but one just doesn’t
find this kind too often.”
Ten young children who were
hearing their mothers talk about
the polio march, decided to do
their bit. They put their heads to

sentation of Hans and Gretel that
stretched out from one planned
performance to four. They took in

Charles Kastilahn, named as
chairman, issued a prompt appeal
to all residents of East Cleveland
to take an active interest in the
crime problem and to participate
in the week’s activities. “The
theme of this year’s observance,”
said chairman Kastelahn, ‘Law
lawness—A Major Threat to Our
Way of Life!’, is a warning direct
from the lips of FBI Director J.
Edgar Hoover. Who could ask for
further proof of the need for im
mediate action against crime and
juvenile delinquency?”
Chairman Kastilahn went on
to say that the steady upswing in
crime statistics during the last
few year, “indicates an imperative
need for greater and more deter
mined public participation in the
fight against the hoodlum element,
if those statistics are to be re
duced to more controllable levels.”

emphasized the importance of
regular church attendance as a
deterrent to crime and juvenile
“The church, along with the
home and the school, is one of the
three major bulwarks against the
encroachments of crime on our
society,” he said. “Our nation’s
stand against the criminal element
is greatly dependent on the com
bined strength of all three. Everjr

and assure the continued benefici

By Smokers
On Increase
Careless smokers caused 41’£%
of all the reported fires in East
Cleveland in 1956. This startling
figure is shown in the department’s
annual report. It is an increase
from 26% in 1955, the lowest per
centage smoker-caused fires year
since 1953 when the rate went
to 33%.
As a result, Chief Fred W. Lange
urges all smokers' to exercise care
with matches and cigarettes.
A total of 517 alarms came in
during the year. Of these 18 were
false alarms, and 51 needless. The
“needless” classification, it is ex
plained, includes calls where there
actually exists a fire, but which
fire has either been extinguished
or is under control when the de
partment arrives. “However,” adds
the chief, “don’t hesitate if there is
a fire! It’s wise to take no
with a blaze.”
