o 5b i*th Mail Addresses Business: 814 East 152nd Street tfPhone: Glenville 1-4383 News: 14600 Euclid Avenue Apt. 302 Study Use Of Elder Citizen Wisdom, Time In persuing this year’s topic of “Needs of the Community” the East Cleveland Community Council will turn its attention for the next two meetings to the elder citizen. These are the men and the women, retired from active careers, either in the world or in their homes, who find themselves with both experience and time. Next Thursday, January 8th, the Council will explore ways by which the community can make use of this largely un tapped resource of wisdom, tal ent and ability, according to Mrs. J. A. Billington, program chairman. “To direct our thinking along these lines” comments Mrs. Billington, we are deeply grate ful to have with us an out standing Cleveland personality, Mrs. Grizell Shepherd, director of the Division of General Edu cation for Western Reserve University.” For members of East Cleve land’s many organizations, and for all senior citizens them selves, here is an opportunity to discover new sources of vi tality, adds Mrs. Billington who believes there are important jobs to be done, and there are people with time available to do them. She suggests consider ation of ways to get the two together. The public is cordially in vited to attend the program in the Cardinal’s Nest, Shaw High School, at 7:45 p. m. THIS ‘N’ THAT /n East Cleveland “And 1 said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: Give me a Light that I may tread safely into the unknown! And he replied: Go out into the darkness an8 put your hand into the Hands of God. That shall be te thee better than light and safer than a known way”. As citizens let’s make a New Year resolution to do our in dividual part to keep East Cleveland the neatest munici pality in Cuyahoga County. All it needs is determination and thoughtfulness and maybe a bit of tlbow grease. Seen along Euclid ave., the morning after Christmas:! A little boy on an errand to the store for a very small package, carrying plenty protection against Injuns ... his bright and shining Christmas! gift rifle. Hey, boys, have you heard the news? The police are clamping down on bottle smashers. If you don’t believe it ask the boys who had to clean up such a mess on one of our residential streets. The boys were plenty warned against re peating the act, too. High time this hazardous and wasteful habit is curtailed. Yes, Mother got her sewing machine and she is happy. For those who may not know, the one thing one Mother wanted for Christmas was a good used machine. The appeal went out last week from the Welfare De partment through the Leader. A citizen with Christmas spir it realized the wish. The children had everything ready for their class Christmas program, settings include the manger with little Lord Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the three shepherds. Suddenly there was a cry: “Little Jesus Christ is gone.” A quick interrogation by the teacher and a small boy calmly said: “I have it. I want to take it home for my baby ocother to see. I bring it back tomorrow morning.” But after a little discussion, the baby was back in the manger with his mother to look after him. Big Brother held back his tears. A Happy New Year with health as your best asset. —E. C. B. 1 ..
