Forty-three community leaders
have been invited to attend a
meeting at East Cleveland YM
YWCA tomorrow, Friday, April
17th to plan the city’s 1959 chest
Dr. Joseph Stocklin, Director
of the Anti-Tuberculosis League
will be present to explain the new
plan to "be introduced this year
in the suburban program. Also
present will be Miss Donna Cob
beldick who has charge of su
burban x-ray surveys.
In his letter of invitation to
tomorrow’s meeting, Charles A.
Carran, city manager, says, “It
is extremely important that tu
berculosis be detected at the ear
liest possible stage, and each year
we are hopeful that we can x-ray
an ever increasing proportion of
our citizens. This goal can be
achieved but only through the
planning, organization and co
operative effort of the Anti-Tu
berculosis League, the County,
The City Health Department, and
a very necessary nucleus of civic
minded community leaders.”
Mr. Carrari says that anyone
who failed to receive a letter of
invitation and who represents a
community group interested in
assisting with the chest x-ray
program is welcome at the meet
ing. Meeting time is 1:30 p. m.
Presiding will be Mrs. F. L. Holz
heimer, 14502 Terrace rd., a
veteran volunteer on prior East
Cleveland chest x-ray surveys
who has consented to be chair
man of the program this year.

The annual campaign for the
early detection of tuberculosis is
tentatively scheduled for the
week of May 17th.
Mrs.Webb is urging everyone
to contribute to the crusade
against cancer, which is second
only to heart disease in the
number of its victims. She also
reminds of the great strides
being made in the search of the
cause, prevention and cure of
cancer through the contributions
of the public.
Also, Mrs. Webb says, “We
can use a few more volunteers.
We will appreciate it if anyone
who can spare an hour or so on
Sunday, to contact the chairman
nearest to them. These co-chair

check-up of the city’s 788 fire

Owners of automatic washers
are especially reminded to check
the water before placing clothing

Rusty water is unavoidable
when a hydrant is checked, ex
plains Chief Lange, despite the
flushing that is done as a part of
the inspection. The rust accum

This semi-annual hydrant in
spection is coming earlier than
usual this year, according to
Chief Lange. The reason, he
points out, is the renovation go

to do the Spring housecleaning
which is usually in full swing
now. The cleaning must wait un
til the carpenters and their other
