All persons 19 years of age and over are urged to partici pate. The Christmas Seal buses will be located in eight places in the north east section of the city. This will include the area from the Nickel Plate Railroad north to the city limits and east to Phillips ave. This x-ray program, announc es Dr. Joseph F. Stocklin, direc tor of the Anti-Tuberculosis League will inaugurate an en tirely new approach to free chest x-raying in Cuyahoga County. Instead of a city-wide survey each year with fewer bus loca tions, the survey will be concen trated in a one-third of the city, with eight stations operating for the full three days, including two evening schedules. Each year the survey moves into another area, adding up to a complete survey every three years. Everyone in north east Cleve land will find an x-ray bus much closer to home than ever before. And this, it is believed, will make it easier for persons to get the free chest x-ray. It is expected to add up to far more x-rays than ever before. Referring to the average of a bout 6,000 x-rays annually here, Wm. W. Lewis, Public Relations Director for the League, says they feel it will be better to x-ray into thousands of different peo ple every three years, than to x ray the same 6,000 persons every year. The new program has the ap proval of the six health boards within the county and the Cleve land Academy of medicine. For those under 19 years of age a new program calls for tu berculin testing instead of x-ray ing. Parental consent must be given. While the policy to be innau gurated this spring calls for sec tor x-raying, Mrs. Frank Holz heimer, local chairman, makes it clear that anyone anywhere in East Cleveland, will be welcome to a free chest x-ray at any bus on any day of the May 20th-23rd schedule. “We don’t want to ex clude any persons from this health program”, she added. Boy scouts and Camp Fire girls will again assist in the Lost? Found! Four War Bonds laaaiah Slusher, 74, of 13509 Garden rd., has faith in human ity. His faith is justified by an unusual experience. On April 16th, Mr. Slusher went to his bank to cash four War Bonds. Arriving at the bank he didn’t have the bonds. And they were signed. Perturbed, he searched the trail homeward. No bonds. He searched the house. No bonds. Then he notified the police. Lost but signed bonds could be cashed by the finder. Then the unexpected hap pened. The bonds were at the East Cleveland Postoffice, turned in by an unidentified person. The clerk receiving the bonds didn’t get the name. To the unidentified person who brought a happy ending to this experience, the Slushers say a sincere “Thank you.” School Calendar 1959-1960 East Clevland Public Schools 1959 Wedr.esday.

Since but two elemen tary schools are located in the designated survey area, only the pupils in those schools will re cieve the usual free chest x-ray materials. This is being handled by Mrs. Sally C. Elliott of the Board of Education’s medical staff. PTA units of the two schools will follow through with their usual pattern of furnishing vol unteers. Dr. Stocklen pointed out that under this new policy, the search for tuberculosis could be given a larger scope in the high inci dent areas, making it possible to more quickly serve detected cas es.
