Judge Stanton Addams said that Hirsch paid the $25 fine, and that he is under obligation east CLEVELAND LIBSARU 14101 EUCLID City Revamps Traffic Rules Defines Terms When is a car parked? What is a thoroughfare? What is a highway? These are some of the things the city is attempt ing to define in its new ordi nance. The new traffic ordinance (or rather clarification of the old ordinance) has been two years in the making. The administra tors hope to have it ready for the Commission by the first of April, according to City Mana ger Charles Carran. The present ordinance has sections which are in conflict with one another. There are also finer points which are hazy in their meaning. The original law has been amend ed so many times that it is impractical. The ‘new” law is a streamlining of the old. It will assure that the city's traffic laws are in agreement with the state’s. The ordi nance will parallel Cleveland's ordinance, Mr. Carran said. Drivers need not fear that they will be ensnared by a “sneak” section added to the new law. Driving rules will re main the same. Anything that is changed will receive plenty of advance publicity. If any new “no parking areas” or tow away zones are included they will be clearly marked. One change that has al ready been made is the grant ing of authority to the city to tow away cars and charge for their impounding. At present cars are only towed when they obstruct street maintenance or something else vital to the city and there has been no charges leveled.

East Cleveland Leader EAST CLEVELAND, Q-\ The East Cleveland Leader, The SCOOP and Euclid News-Journal Give Advertisers Complete Coverage in Northeast Greater Cleveland East Cleveland, Ohio 14,850 Circulation Guaranteed An old affection at ness again another Becky. A handy man with even the humblest of tools, Mr. Woost began the job of renovating the old wheel in time for the holi days. He had to fashion two new spokes to replace those that were missing in the wheel. He made a new spindle by hand and then got down to the busi ness of beautifying the finished product. As the self-made carpenter sanded away on the base he un covered inscirebd within a heart, “To Becky 12-25-67.” At that moment the surprise gift became even more special be cause Nancy Woost’s nickname is Becky. It was taken from her maiden name which was Becker. The history of the spinning wheel is a matter for conjec ture and the Woosts look at it every now and then and won der aloud who and where and when. Spinning wheels were no longer in vogue during the mid 19th century so there is a pos sibility that the wheel may go back another century or so. The Woosts, who live at 1660 East 133rd st., have been col lecting antiques, polishing them off and incorporating them into their colonial style living quart ers for seven years. Jan. was city 2nd, elected president of the Commission. Mr. Fellows, the manager of Chemical Petrole um industry of Bailey Meter, is the veteran of City Commission ers having served six years. This is his second term as president. He has served as vice presi dent twice also, in ’55 and in ’59. Although the spinning wheel was a highlight of their holi days it was not the only tie they have with the past. Mrs. Woost delved through several books and pieced together the central European ideas for cele brating the greatest feast of of the Christian year. And the Woosts had what might be called an old fashion Christmas. In this day and age when aluminum trees have made even the natural spruce trees trimmed in a variety of lights and store bought decor seem out-moded, the Woost’s cut their own tree and trimmed it in ornaments which they made themselves. The only commer cial touch was their yellow light bulbs. It took many hours of patience and good* humor for them to make their cotton snow ladies and wind metal scraps around pencils for the tinsel effect. ev or- on- In keeping pace with their old fashioned Christmas, Mrs. Woost made European Christ mas cookies and other apropos desserts. They held a Christmas party and served tea with candy canes as swizzle sticks. Although it was a “dry” party, Mrs. Woost reports that her guests said they were pleased to have such [a party and the usual good time !%0 Antique Wheel Spins Pleasant Woots Christmas By KEVIN McTIGLE spinning wheel given to “Becky” with least 92 Christmases ago brought happi this Christmas when it was The wheel was a special surprise that fireman Richard Woost purchased for his Kirtland antique shop. given to Cleveland wife at a was “had by all,” minus bleary eyes.

Mrs. County OKs Euclid Job The Board of County Com missioners agreed Monday to share the expense of repaving Euclid ave., from Beersford east to Ivanhoe. The city is waiting to hear from the state about its Euclid ave. intentions. The preliminary estimate of the cost has been set at $155,000. The city has asked the state to pay half of that figure and the county to share equally with the city the amount re maining. The county therefore has agreed to contribute $25,000 to the resurfacing job. The state would be in charge of the proj ect. Both East Cleveland and the county would give their money to the state for the work. The entire pavement would be covered with asphalt and some curbing would be repaired.

I want East Cleveland to be as proud of the Y and itself as I am.” With that statement Thomas W. Priscilla last week an-) nounced his acceptance of the chairmanship of the YMCA YWCA partner-membership en rollment.
