Moderated by Rev. Andrew White, pastor of Calvary Lu theran Church, each panel member approached such ques tions as: “How the changing population has affected you,” “What are some of the prob lems that might keep East Cleveland from remaining a desirable place in which to live? and What can be done to help the community meet the pre sent challenge?

Cocktails will be from 6 until 7 p. m. Dinner will start at 7. City Manager Apthorp, speaking from the standpoint of his office position, declared: “No Serious Problem” “So far there have been no serious problems I think the problems lie ahead. The nub lies in what we are going to do about them before they arise.” Some of the future concerns he mentioned were aging homes, and their possible re placement strip-business and rezoning and a reduced econo mic standard of our citizens. Future financing of new ventures could be more diffi cult, with the additional possi bility of increased welfare, rec reation, and housing inspec tions as a drain on present city funds, he observed. “Demonstrating a picture of the well-informed school ad ministrator, Dr. Nichols pre sented a variety of statistics relative to school enrollment.

Miss Wyn koop said a lot of thought went into the selection of the con tents which were mostly bought by children’s earnings on odd jobs around the house during spring cleaning time. The boxes contained such practical items as crayons, pen- the school head explained. “Negro population of Kirk’s student body is ten per cent at present five per cent at Shaw,” he observed. $20,000 Per Child At present, $20,000 in tax duplicate money stands behind each child in our public schools, Dr. Nichols pointed out. Actual student enrollment is 6,500, from a population of 43,000, the superintendent re ported. “The normal enrollment fig ure should be closer to 8,500 based oit such census figures. The significance lies in the three factors responsibile for the relatively-low enrollment: a large proportion of older residents past the child-hearing age the increasing number of apartment dwellers, and the advantage of having three par ochial schools in the city,” he said.

The sin lies in doing nothing about the problem.” Supply Bikes With Locks Urges Chief Chief of Police H. S.

In making a motion to turn down the bakery's Commissioner J. said that in grant for a city should making any which might with what the Planning Com mission might have in mind. Prompt By Opposition The commission also prompt in its action by the widespread opposition that saw more than 30 residents of the area against the rezoning ap pear at the meeting. The fact that most of them were from the Cleveland side of the street did not alter the official think ing. City Manager Grant Apthorp pointed out that if this opposi tion would have been as strong at the Board of Zoning Ap peals meeting a month ago. that group would not have moved as hastily as it did on the issue. The zoners okayed the rezoning. The Hough Bakery lawyer also charged that “attorneys are carried away by their nwn side of cases.” He further stated that the commissioners’ action would end the bakery’s hopes nf ex panding because waiting for the Regional Planning Com mission to act would be a mat ter of a couple of years.” Selker pointed out an “ob vious need for combined muni cipal efforts between East Cleveland and Cleveland" and he proposed that the planning study of the two municipalities he coordinated and information mutually exchanged. Several residents of the area, both from Cleveland and East Cleveland expressed fears that the rezoning would lower the value of their homes. In other action, closely re lated to this rezoning problem, the Commissioners appropriat ed $20,000 as third cost of Master Plan. EAST CLEVELAND'S OFFICIAL FLAG By Gene Hersh When the Regional Planning and Zoning Commis sion begins on its Master Plan for East Cleveland, one of its first projects will be to expedite the study of the Auburndale, Lakeview area. This was requested by the City Commissioner Tuesday night as they turned down the request of Hough Bakery to rezone five lots on Auburndale for the construc tion of a $200,000 addition for shipping facilities.

Would Leave Area Open He also pointed out that re zoning the five lots involved would leave the area open for such businesses as a dance hall or a bottling firm. The two lawyers clashed on several occasions during the two-hour public hearing with Calfee questioning a petition of objectors that wasn’t notar ized. The lawyer also accused Selker of expressing his own opinions and not showing the courtesy of bringing experts to discuss the issue. Calfee had an experienced real estate ap raiser at the meeting.
