THIS THAT In East Cleveland Well, that’s it, comments Rec reation Director Roy Wisecup as all thoughts of a Friday night dance for the 18s and over on the Shaw pool sundeck is ended. The second try, last Friday, brought a mere 56 danc ers, far too few compared to the between 400 and 500 teen agers that pack the place on Tuesday and Thursday eve nings. “They asked for it, we tried to give it to them,” was his comment. Just how callous can we get. imagine discarding soft drink bottles on a church lawn. And of course those very stupid bot tle breakers are still with us. With the iced tea supply down to the last drop, Harold Jones stepped into the crisis during the social period follow ing a recent morning service at St. Paul’s Church. He served a quickly prepared lemonade. So popular was the drink that it has crowed iced tea off the list and the refreshing, cooling lemonade it is until a decided drop in the thermometer calls for coffee, piping hot. Have you run out of one cent stamps yet? What did you do today to keep East Cleveland free from litter?

Venslovas Says Public Tops On New Mail Rates “It’s been far better than we expected” commented George Venslovas, superintendent of the East Cleveland branch post office when asked how the pub lic is responding to increased postage rates. “The publicity given the in crease by newspapers, radio and television, and the public itself have kept mail deliveries sailing along,” said Venslovas. “We had anticipated delays for carriers, stopping to collect overdue postage. There has been very little of it.” The delays have come most ly in third class postage, those smaller packages dropped into the mail boxes. In this cate gory, it is pointed out, are films, which now average six cents to the package. It is suggested that persons having small pack ages which they send out regu larly, get one weighed and then follow the postage pattern for it. East Cleveland Leader Published in Conjunction with The SCOOP in Northeast Cleveland and The News-Journal in Euclid Variety is the spice of life and it is variety that keeps the humdrum out of the complaints that cross a desk sergeant’s desk, or come in by phone. For instance this past week there was everything from a sick dog, a dead cat and a rat in a bath room, to rubbish fires and an inebriate celebrating something. Will You Help? The city of East Cleveland has been incorpo rated since February 20, 1911. These 47 years have witnessed a proud parade of people and events. Our city can boast of an unparalled record of uninterrupted good government. The school system has been of such calibre that many have remained within the city limits, and others have been attracted from without, in order to have their children under this influence. Our law enforce ment, fire protection and public services have been the best obtainable. Churches, service clubs and other organizations have established enviable records in their particular fields of endeavor. Considering all of these facts it is difficult to understand why a voluntary agency such as United Appeal has so much difficulty in recruit ing the necessary local assistance for the suc cessful conduct of its annual fund drive in our city. This year marks the initial attempt to com bine Red Cross and Community Fund solicita tions. This marriage of these two services, so far as the annual approach to fund raising is con cerned, will lessen the number of solicitations by fifty percent. This should be welcome news to the solicitor as well as the donor. Nevertheless, attempts toward getting the citizens to assume responsibility for organizing and conducting this enterprise have been extreme ly discouraging. After twenty-nine contacts, only four community leaders have agreed to assist in this vital and necessary undertaking. Making allowances for the inherent inadequa cies of the organizer, this is still inconsistent with the service record of East Cleveland. Our American way of life has always de pended on the volunteer worker. He has been the sturdy structure which has maintained our inde pendence and freedom from beaurocratic interven tion. We have, by virtue of the volunteer worker, been able to retain our high degree of self-respect. Those who are charged with the respon sibility of the organization and function of these voluntary efforts welcome, with open arms, the assistance of those who can help. Being busy doesn’t constitute a legitimate excuse. Successful volunteer efforts are made up of busy people. The needs are for section chairmen, vice chairmen, team captains, secretaries, assistant secretaries, and workers. May we have your serv ices prior to and during the drive in October? Will you volunteer your service, or say “yes” if asked to assist? A phone call to ER. 1-0178 will indicate your willingness to help. East Cleveland.

The Swim Exhibition is the final event in the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim pro gram at Shaw Pool in which some one thousand children have become accustomed to the water and started their cours es to become efficient swim mers.

Home from a trip abroad, Dr. Marty Loftus telephoned to say: “Now I know why you are so litter minded, especially since your trip over last summer. I saw more litter in front of one store on Noble rd. since I came home than Mrs. Loftus and I saw from Scotland to Ireland. Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it. but it’s the gospel truth. Our neighbors across the sea are litter conscious. They wouldn’t think of dropping a piece of litter of any kind or size any where but in a waste container. They will tuck into their pocket or purse or carry it in their hand until they come to a waste basket. One of the surprising evi dences of this neatness was observed in Scotland, reports Dr. Loftus. Itt was Sunday, in the beautiful park across the street from their hotel some 5,000 people had gathered to enjoy the concerts from the two band shells. Hundreds of the listeners had brought their lunch and remained for hours, sitting on the grass, if a bench was not available. At 10:00 p.m when the crowd had dispered not a piece of litter was in sight! The newspaper that had been sat upon, the crumbs that might have been spilled from their lunches, any wrappings, all had been carefully collected and placed into waste contain ers.

Nineteen Clevelanders were among the successful can didate*. A East Cleveland’s third Amer ican Field Service student, Hir oshi Shibata, arrived at the Cleveland Greyhound bus sta tion at 9:30 o’clock this morn ing. He was met by his par ents for the school year, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lyndall and their daughter, Anne, and soon boy and baggage arrived at tho Lyndall home, 1021 Helms dale rd. where all was in readi ness to receive him. The Lyndall’s son, Ward, is at Camp Iroquois, Linesville, Pa., and will not be home until August 15th, but it will not be that long until the “borthers” meet. The Lyndalls have ar ranged to visit the camp on Saturday of this week. Hiroshi made the long trip from Japan with other Far East AFS students coming to this section of the United States, by plane from Tokyo to Mil waukee, Wis. From that city the students left by bus for their respective American homes. The Greater Cleveland area this school year will have its largest contingent of AFS girls and boys attending its high schools, eight in all. One of these is a classmate of Hiroshi's from the Kobe High School. He will be in the home of Dr. and Mrs. Tilton in Chagrin Falls. It isn’t going to take long for the Japanese youth to become acquainted here.

He is also inter ested in drama and music and has combined these talents to direct many a school entertain ment. hour. Seeing Is Believing, Says Loftus Hiroshi is eager to begin his studies, all of which are being directed toward the goal of a diplomat. His visit to America has been made possible by the Rotary Clubs of the 365th Dis trict Rotary International who awarded him a scholarship, making possible his acceptance of the AFS proffer. He also was the recipient of his high school’s 1957-58 scholarship for further study. Visiting students are tops in their classes and all of them are giving an extra year to study, since they must return to complete their senior cours es to receive a diploma from their home school. They also receive an honorary diploma from the American high school attended during their stay in the States. Hiroshi does not expect to make the Cardinals in football but he does play soccer, the Japanese game nearest to our football. He also plays volley ball. The Far East students arrive at their American homes much earlier than do the AFS stu dents from Europe or the Mid East because of the greater dif frences in their mode of living and the consequently greater adjustment to be made. The ex tra weeks afford them the op portunity to feel more at home before beginning their studies in a school also so different. In Kobe, Mrs. Toshiko Shib ata and her two younger chil dren, a daughter and a son, await word of Hiroshi’s safe ar rival in East Cleveland. East Cleveland’s previous AFS students were Alf Kolben stvedt from Norway and Eva Mueckenberg from Germany. Former Pastor Union Speaker Rev.
