EUCLID Mail Addresses Businesst 814 East 152nd Street Phones GLenvIlle 1-4383 News: 14600 Euclid Avenue Apt. 302 Night Club Locations Limited In a brief but swift moving session Tuesday evening, the East Cleveland City Commis sion enacted two important pieces of legislation for the peace \and the health of its residents. It restricted the lo cation of night clubs, and it assured purchasers against the sale of thawed and re-frozen foods. Holding that “Motels and hotels in the City of East Cleveland have been erected and established to provide a v place of peace and quiet and rest for motorists and other overnight guests,” no night club in a hotel or motel shall be lo cated on the same floor as sleeping rooms, nor above or below such rooms. Holding that thawed re-froz en foods create a health haz ard, the Commission amended the Sanitary Code prohibiting the sale of any food which has been re-frozen, or any food that has been frozen and thawed, except where such foods are plainly so marked. The fine for a violation is from $5.00 to $200, depending on the circumstances involved. Upon the request of the Wel fare Federation the city cut the foster home fee from $3.00 to $1.00 a year. All such homes are under supervision and in spection of the Welfare Feder ation and also of inspection by the city. Three bids were on the agen 1 da. The city awarded the Broadway Wrecking Co. the contract for demolishing the old lodge in Forest Hill Park on its bid of $1240. This family is now occupying the home built by the city in the same loca tion of the park. The contract for a new cone at the Incinerator was let to Nichols Engineering Research Corp, on ias bid of $1142. The same company received a sim ilar bid two years ago. That price was $1141. The third bid, for air condi tioning units, was rejected. A former instructor in the East Cleveland school’s Hard of Hearing classes, Mrs. Joan Nelms is now in a new role. She has the lead in the Parma Civic Theatre, the Footlight ers production of John Patrick’s “The Willow and I..” It will be on stage in the Little Theatre of Parma High School, April 2nd through 4th. Mrs. Nelms was active in the University Theatre and Modern Dance Club at Kent State University. THIS 1 THAT In East Cleveland How many days until next Tuesday? That’s the number of days left in which to get that auto tag. No, we have not forgotten about litter, but with all the snow, slush and ice, much of it carried away with col lected snow. But now its Spring. The sun is showing up every bit of dirt and grime and every smallest piece of litter is out of place anywhere but in the trash can. Please, NO litiirbugs any where. A lot of boys are sending up i their own rockets in the shape of kites. A sure sign of Spring. Spring and cleaning. These i,- are two words which have be come practically inseparable. The mop, the broom, the scrub brush are as symbolic of this season as the crocus and the daffodil. Nothing is quite so satisfying as the wakening from winter doldrums to the constructive action of cleaning, scrubbing and polishing. If we add to this basic spring mixture the further ingredients of repairing steps, roof, paint ing interior and exterior sur faces, planting flowers, our community will reflect Nature’s i reawakening. Plan now to Clean Up, Paint Up, Fix Up, Plant Up for a sparkling tomorrow. AVENUE Fac.T CLEVELAND, 0* ,' 'A-I' Meeting for their 11th an nual election of officers, the East Cleveland Auxiliary Po lice elected Robert Gray of 1209 Bender ave., to the office of president. Mr. Gray, a sales man and World War II veter- Atomic-Age Physics Classes Slated For Shaw High This Fall Shaw High School will in augurate a new, atomic-age physics course next September, as the result of intensive sci ence studies now being pur sued at Case Institute of Tech nology by a member of its fac ulty. Mr. Richard E. Baker, teach er of physics and chemistry at Shaw, is attending three one hour courses weekly, February through May at Case to become I I I Former Teacher Stars In Play Richard E. Baker acquainted with this new ap proach to physics teaching. This new program of science teaching has been developed by the Physical Science Study Committee, a nationwide or ganization of physicists with headquarters at Massachusetts Institute of Technology at Cambridge, Mass. Two years ago thie committee started the preparation of four workbooks, re-arranging and enriching the traditional high school physics course in the light of the tre mendous increase in modern knowledge of the universe and the atom. In addition, the committee has devised many new physics experiments, making use of such simple materials and equipment that the costs of laboratory demonstrations are dramatically reduced. For example, in the study of wave motions, instead of rec ommedning that a school buy a “ripple tank” that sells for ninety dollars, the Science Study Committee shows how a classs can build one of their own for less than six dollars, including the motor. Again, to weigh minute qualjties of matter, the Committee’s work books show how to build a sen sitive microbalance out of soda straws for pennies, rather than paying a small fortune to buy a commercial scales. “The workbooks are so new,” Mr. Baker says, “and the course is changing so fast that al ready Workbook No. 1, which was published two years ago, is out of date before Workbook No. 4 is finished.” Chemistry and mathematics are being combined with phys ics study more and more these days, Mr. Baker reports. This leads to the student’s under standing of the whole picture of the physical world better, as well as helping in the learning of those other subjects. Mr. Baker, who is now in his first year of teaching at Shaw, graduated from Fenn College in 1950 and received his Master’s FH 4 4 'Mb Exchange Club Honors Champs I Two champion basketball teams, their own Class E de fenders and the Lake Erie League co -champions from Shaw High School, will be hon ored by East Cleveland Ex change club.

The incoming officers were sworn in by H. S. Weaver, chief of the East Cleveland Police Department under which the auxiliary serves. The Auxiliary with 48 mem bers, has a membership goal of 75. The Auxiliary Police organ ization came into being in March, 1942 as a part of the Civilian Defense and served un til that organization was dis banded. Then, also on a vol unteer basis, the group con tinued to serve as an adjunct of the East Cleveland Police De partment in the performance of other public duties. It also serves the East Cleveland Board of Education at all sports events. In September, 1948, the Aux iliary reorganized, elected offic ers, drew up a by-laws, named themselves the East Cleveland Auxiliary Police and placed themselves under the wing of the East Cleveland Police De partment, ready to assist in whatever civic service needed. To be a member of the Aux iliary Police the applicant must be a resident in good standing in East Cleveland, or have a civic interest in East Cleveland. Applications are first screened by the Auxiliary and then recomended to the Chief of Police Weaver for ap proval.

Ohio 14.100 Circulation Guaranteed Thursday, March 26, 1959 State OK's City's Food Inspections A highlight of the annual report of the East Cleveland Sanitation Department, as filed by its director, Stanley Slejko, is the approval of the State Department of Health of its Food Service program.. Under this policy each food service establishment is visit ed at least twice a year with a written report of each visit placed on file, plus at least two or more re-inspections, as the situation may require. The en tire program was carefully checked by the state. In addition to places where food is handled, barber and beauty shops, theatres and transportation stations come in for inspection. Inspection of gasoline sta tions, the report indicates, found practically every gas tank now equipped with anti drain valves to insure correct fluid measurement. 36 such in stallations were made in 1958. Another highlight of the year was the quick trackdown of the source of a dangerous, ornament, imported from the Caribbean Islands. Through a story carried in the East Cleve land Leader, the Sanitation Department was able to appre hend the buyers responsible for as shipping the dangerous items into this territory. Every city has a more or less rodent problem. In the past three years extra effort has been made to overcome the lo cal situation. The number of complaints last year dropped almost 200, and, says Mr. Slej ko, most of the complaints came from sections of the city where the rodents had not ventured before. These sections were then given extra attention and the nuisance was gradually les sened. During the year 53 pictures were taken of outstanding health violations and ten per sons who failed to meet state or local regulations were sum moned before the prosecutor. Pete To Rescue As Driver-less Auto Takes Off I A driverless automobile, backing across Euclid ave. to ward the Continental Theatre, caught the eye of Pete Zampi no, truck driver, for the East Cleveland Board of Education, Monday morning. Dropping the mail he had just picked up, Mr. Zampino dashed after the rap idly moving car, and still run ning managed to get the door open, pull the brake, and halt the vehicle. The driver, also in the post office, had left the engine run ning and in reverse gear. In its brief, but mad rush, the automobile just escaped hitting a CTS bus and another automobile. A friend, hearing the tale commented: “Just like Pete. Always doing something nice for somebody.” MENTAL HEALTH Dr. William L. Grover, Su perintendent of Cleveland State Hospital, will be the speaker at East Cleveland Kiwanis lun cheon meeting in the East Cleveland YMCA Monday noon. Dr. Grover will speak on lo cal problems concerning men tal health and the operation of the Cleveland State Hospital. ACCENT ON SERVICE is the pledge made by Joe and Theresa “Terry” Cerino who today opened their bright new supermarket at 15545 Euclid ave. marking a pro gressive step forward since the first Cerino store was opened here just twelve years ago. It's A "Wonderful Town' Anyway You Look At It “$1,000!” exclaimed elated Mr. Paul Hammer, Chairman of the program advertising committee for Shaw’s forth coming musical, “Wonderful Town.” “East Cleveland really is a Wonderful Town!” Actually, the 38 student salesmen brought in $1,005.26 during their two-week cam paign, with a few late reports expected after Easter vacation. This far surpassed the $770 goal which had been set and reflects East Cleveland’s fine support of the school’s coming production. Large trophies, representing $60 or more in sales, were earned by three students. Top salesman was senior Wade Mc Kee with $81, second was sen ior Vic Wallace with $65, while junior Sharon Maurashat ran a close third with $64. Fourteen students earned smaller trophies by selling at least $30 worth of advertising. These students were Nancy Baker, Mickey Bruce, Cathy Cortese, Kathy Davis, Marilyn Grande, Sharon Lamos, Paul ette Lemel, Jean McDermott, Sharon Mason, Janice Pink, Marian Richards, Janet Skil ton, Nancy Stout, and Rita Yaxley. Tickets for “Wonderful Town,” which will be given on April 16th, 17th, and 18th, will be sold by every Shaw student starting next Monday. Prices for advance sale tickets are $1.00 for students and $1.25 for adults. All tickets will be $1.25 at the door. Mr. Robert Louis is in charge of ticket sales with the Stu- dent Council helping in distri bution of tickets and collection of money. If the success of the advertising committee is a true indication of local support, ticket sales should boom.

This Work,” says Mr. Frank Helfrich, choir director at First Presbyterian, “is regarded as one of the masterpieces of the German composer who lived from 1833 to 1897. Originally conceived as a memorial to his close friend and musical con sultant, the late Robert Schu mann, it ultimately became a memorial to Brahms own moth er who died in 1865. “Rather than following the classical Latin Requiem Mass of the Roman Catholic liturgy, Brahms selected passages from the Bible and composed music for the German text so that all the hearers might better under stand the message. The chief stress is laid upon the uncer tain brevity of human life con trasted with the eternal calm of the happy dead.” The program will be given in the sanctuary, 16200 Euclid ave., at 8:00 p. m.

These functions are: (1) the processing of General Relief applications and the issuing of General Relief moneys (2) the Dispensing of Welfare Service and (3) the Liaison with Police and Schools in Social Service for School Age Children. This article will cover the re port for the first of three func tions: General Relief. The annual report on the functions of the Welfare Service and Service to School Age Children will be pre sented next week. The effects of local lay-offs and cut- backs in employment were reflected in the 1958 Gen eral Relief load carried by the city, according to Miss Bran nan’s report. Both the number of applications for relief and the number of relief cases accepted were double that of the previous year. The number of applications for financial assistance were highest in April, June and Octo ber, roughly following the months when Unemployment Compensation expired. During 1958 thirty-five East Cleveland families or individuals received the $8,545.11 distributed through General Relief, this be ing approximately three times greater than the total granted the preceding year. Of the 35, two families received assistance for the entire year, and 24 for three months or less. Of the 83 applications, 50 were found to be ineligible and three were pending as the year ended. Of the family units, 24 were closed during the year and 14 were on the active list at year's end. Get Auto Tags By Tues. Deadline Do you have that 1959 red and white Ohio license tag?
