Born in Penn. James E. Bateman was born in Dunlo, Penn., and was only a year old when the family moved to Cleveland. Seven years later, the untimely death of his father at 32 necessitated the placing of Jim, his sistei and two brothers in a chil dren’s home in Springfield, Ohio. Even here, Jim I’^rtic ipated in group activity his backfield position on the state champion Springfield High School football team made him a member of this winning team during its two undefeated years—something he is still proud of now.

Proceeds from the auctions held yearly on unclaimed prop erty picked up by the depart ment go into the Police Pension Fund. Hartsford as secretary is the official auctioneer. Av erage revenue is between $80 and $100. By law, recovered stolen items must remain in police custody for 90 days, then can be auctioned off. However, there are many items that cannot be auctioned off. Firearms picked up during the last year will be destroyed as will a syphon recovered with a five-gallon gasoline can. (The gasoline can will be sold.) Another item picked up that will not be on the auction black was a Cleveland Police badge. It was returned to that de partment.

Spiral Brush Prexy present, he is Chairman of the "Homesick" Parents Jeopardize Young Campers Say Y s Men Sending a boy or girl to sum- sending their children to camp mer camp for the first time can pose greater emotional prob lems for parents than for the youngsters themselves. This view was expressed to day by Donald H. Fortune, Executive Secretary, of the East Cleveland YMCA as boys and girls of East Cleveland pre pared for their annual summer time camping adventure at River Road Camp from August 22nd through the 31st. “Camping holds a promise of new and exciting life. Almost every youngster looks forward to it eagerly,” Fortune said. “But ‘homesick parents’ can unconsciously produce a bad case of homesickness in their children.” “It is only natural for par-lsewed-on name tapes or indel ents to miss their children,” he ible ink. Several self-addressed explained. “But many times they do the youngster a dis service by telling them how much they are missed, and how lonesome it is around the house with the childrefn away.” Re minding young campers of the familiar things they have left behind is one of the best ways of insuring an unhappy experi ence the first time they are away from home. He based this observation on knowledge accumulated by the YMCA’s 75 years of camping experience. It was three-quart ers of a century ago that the first summer camp for boys in the United States was started by the YMCA at Pine Point on Orange Lake near Newburgh, New York. Seven boys attended that camp. Last year the YMCA campaign had grown to 250, 000 youngsters attending 641 camps. Speaking of homesickness, Fortune said that no mention should be made even of the possibility. “Homesickness is a very real thing. It is as pain cessfully is a step toward the ful as a stomach ache. Under standing parents realize that it is something almost all chil dren go through. Resolving the problems of homesickness suc independence necessary for a self-reliant, mature, individu al.” Quite often, Mrs. Susan Bien iasz, the YW Director, pointed out, it is the “homesick par ent” which exposes the child. Letters from home should not say “Mother misses you so much. Dad misses you, and Tw’eetie, the parakeet, misses you.” Fortune offered several other suggestions to parents who are New Clinic Date Friday The Junior Olympics Clin ic featuring many former College stars that was scheduled for last Friday has been rescheduled for tomorrow at Shaw Stadium at 2:30.

Parents, he said, should have a clear idea as to what they hope camp will do for their child. It is always good to discuss with the young camper the reasons for going to camp and his aims should be recognized and encouraged. Parents should not reveal any of their doubts or concerns. Most camps furnish a list of recommended clothing and equipment to bring and they vary little from camp to camp. The most important items are raincoat, rubbers and long jeans—all needed to maintain good health but the most often overlooked by parents. Every single article of equipment and clothing should be marked with envelopes or postcards might be taken along by the children.

East Cleveland teas referred to as “The Model Village of Homes” in an article published in the American Monthly Review of Reviews for November, 1899. The article cited Charles E. Bolton's administration, 1859-1901, as the principal influence for this claim. Among improvements brought, to the village during this period were the widen ing and paving of streets the planting of shade trees and beautifying of lawns obtaining gas and water and free delivery of mail. John D. Rockefeller's summer home at "Forest Hili'’ attracted much attention during its heyday. It \was lo cated on the upper terrace and included 600 acres of forest ravines, tvoodland and lawns. It was laced icith many carriage drives and bicycle paths. The home was destroyed by fire in December, 1917. East Cleveland was known far and wide for the tradi tion of temperance for many years. For wore than a. century prior to 1933—and the introduction of 3.2 beer in the community—East Cleveland observed strict tem perence. This was primarily due to the background of the people who grew up here the first inhabitants were zvomen who lived seriously stressing the necessity of a Presbyterian and Congregationalist pioneers, men and temperate life. ^,/z' M', Z I A I & dette Andrews, 1730 Northfield ave., Acting Chief Nurse in the Blood Center recently, should make the young ladies very proud. “The Volun-teens are accurate in everything they do, they are willing to work and have a polite and friendly manner with the donors.

Jim is also available as a lay read er in his church, and Sunday mornings often find him, not on the golf course, but in the pulpit, substituting for a vaca tioning minister. 50th Anniversary Chairman Currently, Jim is pouring the familiar Bateman energy into the 50th Anniversary. As its chairman, his enthusiasm is as fresh and undiminished for this job as it was when he accepted his first such responsibility. (It was impossible to obtain veri fication of what and when this “first’ might have occurred). Jim Bateman's modesty made the gathering of this informa tion quite difficult. His devotion to family and community really speak for themselves. Perhaps the story of the little boy who grew up in the children’s home —and then became president of his own company—will provide a deeper insight into the real James E. Bateman. “How would you like a brick wall in your backyard?’’ “Wouldn’t the area be better suited for a playground?” These and other questions confronted East Cleveland City Commissioners Monday night as they pondered a proposed 62 suite apartment building on the north side of Euclid ave., be tween Noble and Rosedale rds. Asking the first question was Mrs. George Wolf. 1755 Rose dale, who engaged in a verbal battle with architect Arthur Hemlock over the $750,000 project. “If the building is permitted,” she said, “we would have noth ing but darkness.” Hemlock answered that the “brick wall” would be attrac tive. Posing the playground ques tion was Mrs. Rose Anewalt, 15819 Elderwood ave.. who stated the proposed location was already a congested area and what was needed was a play area for smaller children. Also urging a recreation site for the location w-as Mrs. Arthur Rondini, 1731 Noble. Actually, the area has been zoned for commercial use for more than 30 years and the only question for the commissioners to decide whether to allow a va riance in the square feet per family, from 2,000 to 1,054. The city fathers were sup posed to act on the recommen dation of the zoning and plan ning commission which gave its approval to the construction last week. However, because only three commissioners were present at the meeting, no action was taken. Further comments during the public hearing on th# issue revolved around the “many vacant apartment suites in the city.” “Would not an additional apartment provide a hardship for existing apartments?” asked Mrs. Anewalt. City Manager Charles A. Car ran answered that he didn’t think the picture was as drastic as the opponents to the building had painted it. Carran and Finance Director G. T. Apthorp did say, how ever. that the possibility of a small play area in the neighbor hood would be carefully con sidered. Apthorp further stated that the apartment would bring in an additional $12,000 a year revenue with 60 per cent going to the school system and the city receiving 28 per cent. In other business at the meet ing, Carran submitted a six month report on activity in the city the first half of the year. This showed that building was down from a similar period in 1960. The report stated that while new construction for the first half of 1961 was 19 permits issued worth $826,528, during the same period in 1960 there were. 15 building permits total ing $969,773.
