See you Wednesday at the picnic. If, as a litter bug you gripe about costs of government, what about the millions of tax dollars which each year must go to picking up, carting away and disposing of that litter you and your ilk scatter so blithely. Note for Election Day. The power of one/vote has again been dramatically emphasized. One vote—and that an absentee ballot—spelled victory for a school levy in Lorain. The court holds ftiat the absentee vote nosed the total to the 60 in quired tor passage. Early this year, even before it was time to start the planning for the traditional union church worship now its 32nd year, a committee made up oi represen tatives from the co-operating East Cleveland Congregational, East Cleveland Baptist and Win dermere Presbyterian Churches, thought it wise to poll their respective memberships to see if they wished to continue the program. Over 75% of all three churches indicated a desire to continue. This getting together of Christian^ they believe, is a good thing, giving opportunity for the members of one congre gation to become better acquaint ed with fellow Christians of dif ferent faiths but single goal.

Noble rd., particularly at the top of the hill the Oakhill area and a number of other areas in East Cleveland. “It is not possible at this time,” explains Mr. Apthorp, “to pinpoint exact details of the proposed improvements which are in the process of develop ment.” However, he does indicate that preliminary estimates have been completed and the proposed bond issue is based upon the** estimates which “we believe to be reasonably accurate.” Sewer problems continue to mount as new developments continue. With many such devel opments to the south, sewer problems are increasing for the suburbs directly involved, and indirectly for neighboring com munities. City Pamphlet On Care And Use Of Wading Pools With the advent of summer and wading pools, Stanley Slej ko, East Cleveland sanitary of ficer, reminds wading pool own ers of the necessity of keeping these pools absolutely sanitary for the protection of the health of the children using them. A pamphlet containing infor mation on the care and use of wading pools is available at the office of Director of Health in City Hall. Mr. Slejko urges ev ery wading pool owner to get a copy and follow carefully the information and suggestions It contains. The pamphlet has been com piled by the Swimming Pool Committee bf the Cleveland Di vision of Health in co-operation with the Health Departments of East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Lakewood. It is pointed out that diseases, such as common colds, pink eye, skin infections or diarrhea can be transmitted from one child to another by close association. Therefore it is recommended by these health authorities, that a pool be used only by the chil dren of one family, and that each child should be in appar ently good health before using the pool ... no running noses, no sores, no colds* no loose bowels. It is further recommended that every child take a soap bath prior to wading. If a gar den hose is used to fill a pool, the hose should not be sub merged in the pool water. Keeping the water safe for use is most important, Mr. Slej ko points out. Chlorine, common laundry bleach, sold under trade names of Chlorax, Sail, etc., should be diluted and added at least 15 minutes prior to pool’s use, and additional amounts each hour. Diluted disinfectant equal one-half cup (5% house -[*3 v o (tpeaiq £ipunq p[oq Ion of water. Here are a few tables to fol low for water one foot deep in such pools (six inches deep, one half amount). jo punoj *wqi square—1 pint (It cup added after 1 hour use). Six feet round or 5 feet square —IVi quarts (1 one half cups added after 1 hour use). Eight feet round or 7 feet square—4 quarts (1 quart add ed after 1 hour use). SAFETY: 1. All portable pools should be emptied after each use and plas tic washed off with a hose. 2. Pools that are more than five feet in diameter, that are not practical to drain, should be fenced at least five feet high or covered to prevent little tots from falling in—owners of pool are liable for any accidents. 3. An adult should be present when youngsters are in pool. (A child can drown in several inches of water.) 4. Rough play in a pool should not be permitted as it causes •s^uappoe 5. Metal and glass objects cause accidents and pets use up chlorine in the pool. Although everyone present was apparently agreed, a hear ing before the Zoning Board of Appeals Tuesday, July 8th was continued. This somewhat unusual action was taken for the prime purpose of giving the Euclid-Taylor Property Owners Association the op portunity to know exactly what is planned for the apartment it is proposed to erect in the heart of their association area. The association president, Richard Barton and a few members who were present will unroll the bluprints and be ready to answer questions at the group’s annual picnic at Forest Hill Park Sunday, July 20th. The appeal wa* filed by 8am City Ups Water Rate: OKs Study On the heel* of the action by the C41y of Cleveland to increase its water-sewage rate to all consumers, taken Monday, June 30th, the City Commission of East Cleveland followed suit at its regular meeting held Tuesday, July 1st. The combined water- sewage increase here will approximate 45%. Efective as of July 1st, the first local billings to reflect the increased cost of these two municipal services will be the December 1st statements. Two pieces of legislation were enacted by the Commis sion. A resolution authorizes the city to join with the other suburbs in Cuyahoga County in the employment of legal, engineering and financial coun sul for an appraisal of the Cleveland rate increase. An ordinance amends current legislation and establishes the increased rates which continue to be subject to a three per cent penalty for delinquent payment. Both pieces of legislation are printed elsewhere in this issue of the Leader. The ordinance establishes the following minimum quarterly rates for each one thousand cubic feet of service, water and sewage combined: Present minimum $1.92%. New minimum $2.80. Present minimum, single house, $3.00. New minimum J4.35. Present minimum, double house, $5.35. New minimum $7.80. Present charge to schools, hospitals, libraries, etc., $1.45. New minimum $2.20. This spe cial rate is rockbottom cost to the municipality, states Finance Director G. T. Apthorp. Sewage rates are based on the amount of water used by the consumer.

Property Owner Group To Have Their Say On New Apartment Seskin and Henry Swatt, who have under construction a sim ilar apartment on Allendale ave., south of Euclid not too far distant from the sought for location for their second building venture in East Cleve land. Plans for development of the 64,000 square feet of land be tween the rear property line of dwellings and apartments on the west side of North Tay lor rd. and adjoining the east erly end of Plymouth Place call for two 31-suite building, to face one another in a south to north direction. Parking north, to the Nickel Plate right of way, and east and south of the building would* accommo date 78 cars. The suits are one bedroom dinette type, and in dividually heated and lighted. Messrs. Seskin and Swatt in dicate the suites are primarily for one or two persons. They also plan landscaping. Entrance would be by way of North Tay lor rd. or Plymouth pl. This was a point on which a lively discussion ensued. Would North bound Taylor traffic at tempt to “short-cut” through the apartment site to Euclid or Shaw ave? The zoning board felt this was a matter of juris diction of the owners. Plymouth pl. residents say their only traf fic problem now is drivers who enter, despite “Dead End” sign, and tear up yards as they turn their cars around to get back to the street. Indications point to the granting of the appeal at the Tuesday, July 22nd zone board session. Shaw Field Dance For 21s And Up In response to many requests for a dance night for the 21s and over, Recreation Director Roy Wisecup announces the first such dahce will be staged on the sundeck of the bath house at Shaw Field, Friday, July 18th. The hours will be from 8:30 to 10:00 and all dance lovers over 21 years of age will find a cor dial welcome. The student dances so far this summer have attracted more than 400 young people each Tuesday and Thursday eve ning. Dancers who have favorite 45 or 78 records which they would like to use may bring them. It is suggested that all such records be clearly identified with the owner’s name on tape. This “bring your record” idea came into being when some of the Shaw crowd had some records they wanted to dance to, and were willing to share. The idea has added a variety of records for those dancers under the stars. Admisison will be the same ten cents.
