But before you pack the kids, the picnic basket, and other paraphernalia and head for the wilds of yonder park and its wooded glen, take heed of the following tips from Dr. F. T. Suppes, the city’s health direc tor “Food spoils quickly in hot weather,” he says, “and among the prime offenders are salads, cottage cheese, deviled eggs, chopped meats and cream filled pastries. Keep these cold. “Remember,” Doc adds, “spoiled food nice!” we e OCCASIONALLY some interesting data from the New’s Service of the National Education Association and the Ohio Education Association. Such is the information on a taxpayer’s investment that is about to pay big dividends. According to the Education News Service, the $284 million it cost to educate Ohio’s cur rent crop of 90,000 high school graduates will pay off in $23 billion of earning power. This, in a sense, is a profit of more than $22.7 billion dur ing the lifetime of the high school graduate as compared to the initial investment payer*. Figures compilea by Education Association department show 90,000 students who graduate this spring from Buckeye public high schools can expect to earn an average of $257,557 each during their lifetime by virtue of 12 years of education. SUNDAY CLOSING. The an nounced policy of strict enforce ment of the state Sabbath law by some neighboring communi ties has caused an unwarrant ed fuss. It is interesting to note that all the excitement was generat ed by a recent U. S. Supreme Court decision upholding a city’s right to enforce the state law that has been on the books for many years. What is not appreciated is the fact Ohio’s law' is much more lenient than other states v hich were effected by action by the highest court in the land. In Our State, those who con scientiously observe Saturday as the Sabbath can close that day and remain open Sunday. The strict enforcement policy of neighboring communities was instigated because several large merchandising houses was openly flouting the law. Previously the small merchants who remained open on Sundays were not bothered. But now, there is no alterna tive but to enforce the law on the small, family-operated store as well as the big merchants. So far as East Cleveland is concerned, the present situation has little effect inasmuch as there are none of these big mer chandising outlets in Our Town that have made such a farce out of the Sabbath observation. We feel City Manager Carran Is wise in his cautious approach whereas no local violators will be accosted until ample study is made of the problem. Fortunately, thanks to com plete cooperation of local mer chants—the problem is slight here. Actually, the family-oper ated neighborhood store is a boon to the forgetful housewife who might run out of necessary goods on a Sunday. At the same time, the action of Cleveland’s mayor leaves much to be desired. He feels that it is up to the citizens to go to the expense and trouble of bringing evidence of violat ors to the prosecutor. This is most certainly a police job and should not be entrusted to what could be “vigilante committees.” If the Cleveland Mayor feels there are not enough gen darmes on hand to check Sab bath law violators, he should ask council for a bigger police force rather than depend on citizens to act as law officers. If this be his idea on appre hending Sabbath law violators, why not use civilians to thwart all crimes—and in that wray eliminate the expensive police department altogether? Gtye Hersh Insurance S u es| spoils pic-. Program Approved I Twenty-one local agencies are insuring East Cleveland public school buildings for $10,850,000 at a cost of $4,988.70 annually. The new plan adopted by the school board at Monday night’s meeting gives regular building hazards coverage with additional coverage for vandalism. The proposal approved was submitted by an insurance com mittee of local agents. The new plan approved for a five-year period increases the coverage over $1,000,000 but is $1,223.30 less than last year’s total premium. The board okayed paying the five-year total of $23,316.75, thus saving the system another $1,626.75 or 6.98 per cent.

According to police records, an increasing number of people fail to appear in court for various traffic violations. Thus, the police department has been deluged by judicial writs issued by the court, at the end of 1960. Chief H. S. Weaver quickly responded to the problem by forming the “Warrant Detail” under the command of Captain “Subpoena one patrol each of the process all for service. R. royan. The Squad” consists of man assigned from three platoons to warrants received “This entails the keeping of a current filing system, criss cross list and all information on subjects wanted.

The East Cleveland Board of Education took action at the Monday meeting to continue its policy of investing money by de claring $950,000 as maximum in active funds.
