An entirely new approach to safer driving is being launched in the State of Illinois under the sponsirship of its governor, William G. Stratton. Stratton, believing that a driver of a motor vehicle has a moral as well as legal re sponsibility for safe driving, has enlisted the aid of religious leaders to conduct a campaign to stigmatize reckless and care less driving as a “m oral wrong.” The campaign will be observed this weekend and the results were be watched by Safety Councils, Traffic Safety Divisions, and religious lead ers elsewhere.

To acquaint their new parson age family with life as it is lived in East Cleveland and the great community soirit that is East Cleveland’s, the East Cleveland Congregational Church has been sending the East Cleveland Lea der to the Rev. and Mrs. Robert F. R. Peters for more than three months prior to their residence here. What a splendid idea. It should prove an incentive for even greater effort to tell the world the good news of our fa vorite city. Here, too, is a hint to our readers to send in more of these homey bits of happen ings that make living in East Cleveland so pleasant an exper ience. Notice of the 1958 Pre-Shaw Day recalls this incident ob served by your reporter at Shaw High. Two bewildered lOBs, almost in tears, spotted a monitor. They rushed up, out of breadth: “We are late for class, we can’t find the right room.” The helpful monitor practical ly took them by the hand and started off up a stairway. In those corridors they might get lost again. They had my sympathy. I was lost more than once when first I started on the Shaw beat. One of the thousand extra co pies of the August 11th issue of The COURIER, official news paper of Gunnison County, Colo, has been received by the East Cleveland LEADER. The copies were distributed to all persons registered at the 25th Annual Summer Music Camp of West ern State College, and this copy, we guess, comes through the courtesy of S. Robert Fraser, East Cleveland Public School’s director of music who was in vited to be on the faculty of this large largest summer music camp in the world. Bob’s fam ily are with him at Gunnison and daughter Joan is adding to her drum major techniques by attending classes in the mean while. Asks Tax Cut On Single Dwelling Single home owners who spend up to $500 in a year for repairs to their property would be able to deduct the cost from their income tax under a pro posal submitted to the House Ways and Means Committee by Rep. Frances P. Bolton. Mrs. Bolton suggests that the committee take favorable ac tion to amend the Internal Revenue Act accordingly. In a letter to Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, the committee chair man, Mrs. Bolton pointed out that owners of multiple dwell ings are permitted income tax deductions for repairs while the single home owners are not given the same consideration. The proposal, states Mrs. Bol ton would also serve as an in centive to single home owners to maintain their properties and. also serve as a VW envecRND 1*101 UICUO AVEMUC' EAST CLEVELAND, O Mr. Blough points out that this should be a memorial occa sion especially for the Shaw Class of 1961. Students will meet in the auditorium the first hour. They will be greeted by Mr. Blough and other members of the facul ty, including Miss K. Lucille Provo, dean of girls, and Grant Kibbel, assistant principal and dean of boys, together with Dennis Rogers, Student Coun cil president. Then the newcomers will be assigned their home rooms, and in these groups will be given a tour of the building under the supervision of Student Council members. They will be guided through the maze of corridors and changing floor levels, the result of the several additions to the original Shaw High building. They will become ac quainted with the location of their respective home rooms, classrooms, laboratories, room, library, cafeteria and Shaw Gymnasium. Pool Open: Other Play Spots Close With August fast running out, playground activities are tapering off and final closing days are nearing, anounces Rec reation Director Roy W. Wise cup. The handicraft classes have concluded, Pattison Field has closed and Mayfair playground program ends tomorrow. Shaw Field and pool will re main open through the 29th, which means the sundeck danc ing will continue through Thurs day, the 28th. This program is one of the biggest in the play ground listing with big crowds attending the Tuesday and Thursday dancing parties. There were 528 present on the 12th and 525 on the 14th of August. This Tuesday’s crowd numbered 615—a record. Mr. Wisecup also reports that quite a few parents are coming with their children tothese dances. Mr. Wisecup attributes the generally good attendance at the several city playgrounds this summer to the fact that many families did not vacation this year, members spending more time on playgrounds and other “at home” fun affairs. The Hawley Park, Ravine Drive and other playspots for smal children are also putting away their play equipment ’til another summer.

At Leghorn, Italy, the show was attended by Kenneth Houg land, whom Judy had known at Shaw Hi"h School and at Wind ermere Methodist M.Y.F.

Hiroshi is doing very well, fitting himself into an entirely different environment and, say the family, have helped them to keep life moving normally. It might be expected that food would be a problem but Hiroshi claims he has an international stomach” and proves it by a sec ond helping of corn, and enjoy ment of all meals.

He has visited the East Cleveland Library, the Buddist Temple, and attended a Class game, among other things. Improvement Effort Given Hard Blow Every town is always In need of community spirited citizens, and when a resident does everything possible to im prove and add to the appear once of his property, he should be given every co-operation. Certainly the planting of five trees on one property is a big step toward A City When two of these damaged needlessly, erty owner has just complaint. Such is the case with Miss Grace Archer, owner of a dou ble dwelling at 1215 Lakefront ave. Within the ijast few months Miss Archer had plant ed three Idaho locust trees at a cost of $75.00 and two flow ering crabtrees at a cost of $40.00. She was taking the best of care of the new trees, three along one side of the house and the crabs in the front yard. Saturday evening an uniden tified persons on malicious mis chief bent, cut the top off one of the young crabtrees. Just previous to that one of the lo custs was damaged. “What possible incentive can there be to help make East Cleveland as beautiful as its administration if efficient, in the face of such deliberate damage?” one asks. But a few weeks ago new trees planted at Skating Rink Park were deliberately de stroyed. Neighbors will do their city a favor by reporting any one seen damaging any prop erty anywhere. It’s a practice that must be halted. House Unoccupied? Tell The Police Another of the many com munity services p»*av:!ed by the East Cleveland Police Depart ment is the snfe guarding of homes whose occupants are temporarily away. An officer is given the addresses, and once each day that property is visi ted. Windows and doors are checked to see if they are se cure, and other checks are made. Entry is never made, unless ac companied by the person desig nated by the family. This service, explains Chief of Police, H. S. Weaver, is chief ly for single dwellings. No apartments are listed, and two families only when both fami lies are away at the same time. “We are happy to give it to as sure safety to homes while the family is away” he added. Anyone desiring to have their homes listed for a police check up while out of town has only to cal1 the pciice, MU 1-5020, answer a fe* questions in case of an emergency, and lock door and be off. r- ___ 1- y Nursery Resumes Carol and| The Caledonia Co-operative Pre-School Nursery is taking applications for the coming school term.

The 1,000 pounds of the chewers stored at the North eastern Automatic Products Co., 13205 Shaw ave., were damaged by smoke when fire broke out in the building at 7:42 p. m. Monday, August 18th.

So out of a fire may come a new idea in confections. A sales man doesn’t let an opportunity go by and who knows, smoked gumballs may take their place beside the vaulted smoked ham and smoked herring. The fire loss is estimated at $3,000 and damage to the build ing at $150. Carelessness with cigarettes is given as cause of the blaze.

This, Coach Don Drebus Kiwanians, Monday noon has a double reaction. 1) It spur opposing teams to the champs, and 2) it will give Shaw the desire to stay on top, plus the confidence of a winner. told will beat Coach Drebus and the Shaw Kirk football coaching staff were guests at the annual Wel come Dinner given by the serv ice club for the coaches. In introducing the Cardinal’s, new football mentor Grant F,.J Kibbel, Shaw’s assistant prin-'' cipal, said: “I admire Don Dre bus for the courage of his con victions, his ability to teach, and his interest and concern for boys.” Kibbel has been at Shaw for two years. The coaching staff, intro duced by Drebus are shown in the accompanying photo: Picked by sports writers to repeat as the Lake Erie League grid champions has put Shaw on the spot, commented the coach who, while optimistic as to the outcome, tempered his remarks with a few of the un forseens that can befall a team. Looking over the team and its possibilities, Drefus feels that with eleven lettermen re turning the Cards have a good nucleus for another strong line-up. Returning linemen who earned varsity letters last year are Ends Lou Yacobucci, Ken Connell and Dave Davies tackles Dick Vaughn and Bill Helmar guard Mark Griffiths Center Frank Klenoshek. Dave Davis may be tried as a guard. While four lettermen return as backfield candidates not one, said the coach, has won his let ter as an offensive back. Mario Gerhardt, the barefoot place kicker, Al Thomson, punter, and Kent Andrews and Dave Silves tro were defensive backs. This four plus Denny Rogers, Louis DeHaas, Bill Morris, Nick Bar ile and Tom DiBartolemeo should shape into an outstand ing unit both on offense and de fense. Drebus pointed out that the returning lettermen on the line will be given stiff competition by Carl Strack, Rudi Klauss, Jack Elstone, Earl Cipriani and Ed Nagel. A few new prospects have moved into town, said the coach, but these are still un known quantities and only com petition with holdovers will tell their real worth. Coach Drebus said the basic defense and offense to be used this year will be the same as employed by Coach Leo Strange, with new and added variations that all good coaches must add each season to keep at par, and, if possible, ahead of the other coaches. Looking to the 1958 schedule. Coach Drebus sees Euclid and Lakewood the two toughest teams in the Lake Erie League, with Parma and Cleveland Heights, because of their large student bodies, close behind. Shaker has a smaller enroll ment as does Shaw, but it has always had a good team. Shak er, he said, can surprise any one on any given day but doesn’t appear to have the overall strength for a complete season. The non-league games com ments were: “Collinwood is the neighborhood rival with the outcome a tossup Brush, now larger than Shaw in enrollment is not as tough as last year but should prove a good opening test of the Cardinal chances. Toledo DeVilbiss doubtful, we lost to them two years in a row. Sandusky has a new coach in Ben Wilson (he coached this year’s South All-Stars) and should be much improved over last year.
