City Falls Short Of
The Blood Quota
Rationing Is Planned
The Central Bloodbank’s mo
bile unit visit to East Cleveland
last Wednesday, netted 101 pints
of blood. This was 24 pints short
of the quota a community must
meet tc keep the total blood
supply at a safe level for hos
pital usage.
This failure to meet quota
here in our community is just
one weak link in the chain of
other communities which have
not been able to meet their quo
tas, either. The primary reason
TB Cases
Rise Here
Results of the January tuber
culosis survey in nursing homes
in Cuyahoga County revealed
further evidence that this is be
coming an old age disease. The
case rate per 100,000 persons
x-rayed was 180.5 compared to
73.5 in outside populations.
Survey teams brought bed-side
X-ray equipment into 52 nursing
homes and X-rayed 2,533 per
sons. Two nursing homes re
fused the health service?
Dr. Joseph B. Stocklyn, con
troller of tuberculosis in this
county indicates that the unex
pected high incidents will prob
ably speed this type of survey.
He also said that nursing home
tuberculosis cases could be old

The overall poor collections of
blood this winter, coupled with
the unusually heavy demands on
hospitals during this fire-and
flood period, have forced the
Central Blood bank to ration
blood to all hospitals in the
greater Cleveland area. This is
a situation which could present
a critical situation for all of
us, as it leaves7no reserve from
which to draw should future
emergencies occur.
On the brighter side of the
picture, among those who do
nated blood was Mr. Herbert
Rice, 1855 Knowles st, whose
donation on Wednesday com
pleted his second gallon. “The
blood program is strengthened
by regular donors like Mr. Rice,
who recognize its purpose as ai

Mrs. Klimowski.
Anyone who might be inter

of blood, and who does not wish
to go downtown to the Red Cross
headquarters, might contact
Mrs. Klimowski as to where
the mobile unit will be in some
surrounding area.
Again, the Bloodmobile unit
will return to East Cleveland on

can give blood are urged to keep

March 3rd /s Deadline
“Is there going to be a “first
time short of goal” for the East
Cleveland YM-YWCA Sustaining
Membership Drive on deadline
day, March 3rd? This surprising
and totally unexpected happen
ing appeared so likely that an
emergency meeting of all YW
and YMCA campaign workers
was called for last Saturday
morning. The sum short of goal
could be as much as $3,000.
Bill Cleland, chairman of the
drive called for an all-out attack
by the workers—to get out and
sell the East Cleveland YMCA
At press time Cleland reported
720 Partner Members for 67.4%
of the branch goal. The county
wide campaign goal hit at 60.8%
mark earlier this week.
“Only by a sustained all-out
effort will we realize success by
next Tuesday,” said Cleland.

will be received with the 110
boys in the registration.
The programs will be set up
so that the boys and girls will

Meet Tuesday
“What is this tax money used
for? State law specifies that it
be used for highway and street
purpose. Here in East Cleveland
the money pays for the plow
ing and salting of streets during
the winter. Recent weather con
ditions show how important these
activities are to safe, uncon
gested driving.
“These funds also pay for the
City’s street resurfacing program
carried on every summer. The
traffic control system of signs,
signals, and painted lines show
ing lanes and turns is another
highway use to which this money
goes. The balance is used for
street cleaning and for various
other repairs, construction and
maintenance of East Cleveland
“To keep these vital services
at a high level requires a con
stant flow of money. If funds
are not received, as they should
be received from the state-shared
taxes, they must be raised local
ly from property taxes which di
rectly affect property owners and
indirectly, through increased
rents, affect all others living in
East Cleveland. Thus you can
see the importance of insuring
that your automobile is correctly

Apthorp Urges
Closer Check
East Clevelanders are reminded and urged to re
member that 1959 Ohio State license plates will go
on sale, Monday, March 2nd on the ground floor of
the new section of the City Hall, just to the right
of the Euclid ave. entrance.
Motorists here can secure their plates each day
from 8 a. m. until 8 p. m. Registrar is Mrs. Lorene
Once again Finance Director
G. T. Apthorp issued a reminder
to East Clevelanders that the
city has been losing over $10,000
each year on license plate sales.
The reason for the loss im
proper filling in of license plate
application blanks which in turn
react on a cut in the city’s share
of gasoline taxes.
Mr. Apthorp explains, as fol
“During the month of March,
thousands of East Clevelanders
will be registering their auto
mobiles as they apply for 1959
license plates. For each vehicle
registered from East Cleveland,
approximately $11.00 will come
into the City treasury from state
shared gasoline taxes and auto
license fees. For each East Cleve
land vehicle incorrectly listed as
being in another taxing district,
the city loses this $11.00. It is
estimated that this very thing
happened in 1,000 different in
stances last year. Eleven thou
sand dollars lost to the city!
“There is a blank on the li
cense plate application which
asks for “Taxing District.” If
you reside in the City of East
Cleveland at the time you make
your application, be sure to use
your correct East Cleveland ad
dress and above all make sure
you list “EAST Cleveland” as
your taxing district.
“Why should you be so careful
in listing East Cleveland?
“Because you eventually may
be paying increased taxes or
rents to make up for money
which rightfully and legally
would be received by East Cleve
land. Fifteen percent of the five
cent State tax which you pay
on each gallon of gasoline and
about thirty-four percent of the
$10.00 you pay for your license
plate is returned by the State to
the collective municipalities. The
larger proportion of vehicles a
community has, the larger its
share of tax money.
