Finch Lends Plant
to Chagrin Firm
In recent days many people
have wondered what is going on
at the Finch Cleaning plant dur
ing the late hours of the night.
This can best be explained by
saying that the Good Neighbor
Policy has been put into prac
tice by Mr. Wain Parsons,
manager of the plant.
He has made the full facili
ties of the Finch Cleaning Co.
available to Mr. Stalling, mana
ger of the Finch Cleaning Co.
of Chagrin Falls, whose building
was badly disabled as a result
of a fire on September 21.
While repairs are being made
the Chagrin Falls company (no
connection with the Chardon
company) has been extended use
of the plant here in order to
maintain business.
Preparations are near comple
tion for the first fire prevention
inspection to be held- in Char
don for 25 years. Wednesday,
Oct. 10, will be the date of the
inspection being sponsored by
the Chardon Chamber of Com
merce and the Chardon Junior
Chamber of Commerce with the
cooperation of the Chardon Fire
Department and the Lake Ge
auga Agent's Association, under
the chairmanship of Lloyd O.
These facts were reported by
Mrs. Isabelle Kochert, chairman
of the local polio chapter, at a
meeting of the unit's executive
committee held at her home
Tuesday, Sept. 25.
The inspection will be made in
connection with Chardop’s an
nual observance of Fire Preven
tion Week (by Presidential proc
lamation October 7-13) by train
ed inspectors furnished by the
Fire Prevention Association of
Ohio. Beginning at 9 o’clock in
the morning members of the
FPA organization will investi
gate conditions from a construc
tion, equipment and upkeep
standpoint, of the various busi
ness houses, public buildings,
schools and churches with the
purpose of finding any defects
or conditions that might cause
a fire if. not remedied. It is
planned to have all inspection
completed by noon.
To inspect a building and its
contents the fire preventionists
will work in a careful manner
disturbing none of the employ
ees. They will note any dang
erous accumulation of combust
ible rubbish on the premises,
instances of defective electrical
wiring or other conditions con

current bills on patients of past
years. Our local chapter may
have to make another requisi

for Infantile Paralysis to take
care of new cases.
As an example of the high cost
of polio care, he cited one case
that had already cost the chap

in sight.
“This isn’t a typical case “he
explained,” but it gives a good
idea of what polio costs can be.

Inspection of residences will
be accomplished by means of

and fire prevention which it is
believed has lasting effects.
