fe CLEVELAND 50/4 I V* ANNIVKBSASY N In f-ast Cleveland WE LOST our temper when a gentleman who said he rep resented a property association in the community asked our help in bringing to light some shabby conditions in his area, but nearly in the same breath accused us of whitewashing the city administration. We have never maintained that C. A. Carran and company is perfect but do say that Our Town comes closer to having the best enforcement of its housing code city in these than any other parts. BACK.

Liquor, utilities and all other major interests are well represented in Columbus. If you can say the people have lobbyists it would be their city officials.” This is what East Cleveland Finance Director G. T. Apthorp told an East Cleveland civic group recently. He was quick to point out that the “people’s lobby’’ lacked the monetary advan tages enjoyed by other lobby ists. Lamb Lying Down With The Wolf... **A man is judged by the company he keeps*’?

An annual Memorial Day effort sponsored by these worthy veteran groups, is one that all citizens should support. Remember to give for those who gave so much for you. All proceeds from the sale of poppies and tags goes to support rehabilitation and child welfare programs. It also means a small income to those disabled veterans who make the poppies. 1 NEW OFFICERS of the East Cleveland Community Council are shown looking over plans for next year's activi ties.

Exam Predicted In June Civil service examinations are expected to be held in June as a result of the East Cleveland City Commission creating an addi tional police sergeant rank Tuesday night. By its action, the Commission decreased the patrolmen ranks by one to make room for the sergeant rating without adding to the 62-man department. Acting police Chief Robert Troyan reported the extra ser geant was asked for to provide a relief officer. The ordinance now provides seven sergeants, six lieutenants, two captains plus the chief and 46 patrolmen. Six of the patrol men hold Class One ratings and serve in the detective bureau. At the Commission meeting, Finance Director G. T. Apthorp reported on the successful fight of suburban officials to lower sewer rates charged by Cleve land. The saving to suburban residents using Cleveland sani tary sewage treatment and dis posal facilities was estimated at $3.5 million by Apthorp. An ordinance is now being prepared to approve a contract with Cleveland that will cost East Cleveland 71.2 cents per thousand cubic feet of metered water rather than $1.12, the big city was demanding.
