An innovation in the school Bike Test To Be Continued During August Tabulation of the July bicycle testing program, first to be insti tuted by the Police Department. Results of the first edition of the city’s bicycle testing program carried out during the month of July by the East Cleveland Police Department, show a total of 345 two-wheeler inspections. “We are very elated at the initial operation” was Chief H. S. Weaver’s comment when ques tioned .about the new mobile1 test ing device that has been making the rounds of the six elementary school yards for the past four weeks. Plans are now being formulated under the direction of Police Ser geant William Hartford to sched ule a similar and additional inspec tion program in August. An nouncement of the times and places will be issued next week. Of the 345 bikes tested, 185 received safety cei-tificates of approval and 160 were rejected. In the majority of cases the prime reason for failure to. pass, accord ing to Chief Weaver, was the ab sence of bicycle licenses. Following are the playgrounds visited last month and the number of inspections conducted at each: Chambers, 96 Rozelle, 55 Pros pect, 25 Superior, 23 Mayfair, 45 Caledonia, 36 and Chambers (second visit), 62. The program was held on seven different days for periods of four hours each. Besides the actual bike inspections, riders were ques tioned on safety rules, such as hand signals and other traffic regulations. August tests will follow the same general pattern. An even more extensive sched ule will be in effect next summer, the chief stated. The testing lane, which arrived the latter part of June as a gift to the department from the East Cleveland Safety Council and the Fraternal Order of Police, will be put into operation at the begin ning of the season. Its 1958 pro gram will include at least three months of testing.

'tit 'C' -'I By Bob Keefer With three-fourth of the 1957 season completed, it appears that only two teams remain as title contenders in each of the three leagues sponsored by the East Cleveland Little Leagues, Inc. In the Little League it seems almost a certainty that Nelson Jewelers and Kennedy’s Men’s Shop will meet in' the best qpt of three series te determine the Little League champion. Nel son’s' are already assured of a tie for the Shaw Division title and needs only one victory in their remaining four games to coast to the front-rank position. Ken nedy’s have a two-game margin in the Superior Hill Division and they can finish in front by win ning four of those contests. The Pony. League struggle for league supremacy is confined to East End Nash, who currently own a 6-0 record, and Kennedy’s Men’s Shop which has lost only one of their four games in the second half schedule. Next Mon day’s game between the two rivals will do much to determine the final outcome in the second half. The two clubs finished in a tie for the first half championship but each has a postponed game to be played before that title can be decided. Honegger Catering and the Ki wanis Club are locked in a neck end-neek struggle for the second half title and are scheduled to meet next Thursday in a game which will probably decide which of the evenly-matched clubs will finish on top of the standings. A bitterly-disputed decision in their game played at Pattison Field on Tuesday evening has not yet been ruled upon although the official record shows the game ending in a 5-5 tie called on ac count of darkness. Kiwanis held a 5-4 lead as Honeggers came to bat in the last of the seventh. Bob Barbey opened the inning with an infield single and moved to second when “Duke” DeHaas grounded out. Pitcher Bob Heck man walked and both runners ad vanced on a double steal. Fred Parsh then flied out to center field and Heckman was doubled at second when he left the base before the catch was made. How ever, Umpire Locke Thompson ruled that Barbey had scored the tying run before the third out was made, and despite protests from Kiwanis manager, Bernie Davis, the -run was allowed. In tiie meantime, darkness had set in before the game had progressed Board Candidate Newest candidate to toss his hat in the ring for one of the vacancies on the East Cleveland Board of Education is Bert Holm, 15608 Glynn rd. Mr. Holm began circulating his petition during the past week. He joined three others seeking the two posts that will be vacant the first of ’58. August 7th is the last filing date. Those previously securing pe titions from the Board of Elec tions are Robert Henderson,' who is seeking re-election Ralph Peekinpaugh, and Dr. Louis E. Edwards.

PORTENT'OF THINGS TO COME, ond soon, is this view of what’s going to happen to the Euclid-Superior corner this month, thanks to the city. Dotted lines represent the hazardous jog at the southwest corner that will be removed to allow an even, smooth flow of traffic up Superior Hill. The project, scheduled to begin today, will be completed in time for the ringing of the first school bell in September. Little, Pony And Colt Leagues In Home Stretch Six Teams Eye Top Spot another inning and a ruling must now be made on the scoring rule in question. A wierd game developed at Shaw Field on Tuesday night when Nelson Jewelers registered their tenth straight victory of the Little League season by trouncing Diamond’s Men’s Shop, 16-2. John Kepich, Nelson fizcball artist, turned in his second no-hit game of the year bnt wildness, kept him in constant trouble. The ffrkt two batters to face him drew walks and scored on three wild pitches, a stolen base and a throwing error. Four Diamond pitchers had even more difficulty in finding the plate a« they issued a total of 16 hases on balls and heaved six wild pitches. The alert Nelson baserunners also ran wild on the basepaths as they stole 12 bases, 7 of them in the fifth inning. The game took two hours and ten minutes to be played and a total of 26 players saw action. In direct contrast, the Pollce Koenig game played, at Shaw Field Isst Thursday proved to be a real thriller with the Police eking out a 5-4 decision in an exciting finish. After four scoreless innings, Koenig’s opened the scoring w'ith a single tally in the top of the fifth. The scrappy Police nine came back to push across three runs only to have the Koenigmen regain the lead with three runs in the top of the sixth. Fighting back, Manager Tom Angelone’s never-say-die athletes loaded the bases with one out. Gregg Davis then popped to the second base man for an “infield fly” situation but Stan Soble, who was on third, dashed home after the catch and slid in safely. Two pitches later, Gordon McIntosh tallied the win ning run when Gary Levey, Koenig pitcher, hurled a wild pitch. It was gratifying to see mem bers of both teams shake hands and give the rival team a cheer after the game ended. Parents should be proud and happy to know that these Little Leaguers are learning to practice good sportsmanship both in victory and defeat—a real tribute to the man agers and coaches who guide them. East End Nash was given a real scare by Paul’s Restaurant be fore winning their fifth straight game in a Pony League game at Pattison Field on Monday. Trail ing 3-0 in the fourth frame, the Nashmen tallied twice in the fourth, tied it up on an error in the fifth and added the winning margin in the sixth when Jerry Newton singled to send Jack Brown across the plate. Harry Albrecht, the losing Paul pitcher held the Nash nine to four hits and struck out eleven but he was the victim of poor support which cost him two unearned runs. Denny DeJulius and Kenny Klug provided the scoring punch which gave Kennedy’s Men’s Shop a pair of back-to-back victories over Paul’s Restaurant and Ed wards Funeral Home in their last two outings. Both of the Kennedy infielders cracked game-saving home runs to keep their batting averages around the .400 mark. The hard-hitting Kennedy nine*, which has averaged nine runs per game in 13 contests, have been doing very well despite the tempo rary loss of Bob Gerome, the league’s leading hitter, who has missed four games due te a side I A’ A V-A Carnival At Caledonia .A,-* Big mystery shrouding the Cale donia Playground Carnival con cerns the identity of the disc jockey who rates top billing at next week’s event. Those on hand from 6 to 9 p. m. on Wedneesday, August 7th, at the play field, will find out. The d.j. is giving away records that night. Climax to the summer’s round of activities at Caledonia, the carnival is the braifi child of the playground supervisor, Leo Strang, and staff members, Ron nie Schwartz and Barbara Hill. Drawing' cards for the eve ning’s fun are a father-son base ball game, dart throw and bean guessing contests, refreshment and various other types of booths, movies, and prize-winning relay races. Proceeds will be turned over to the playground fund.
