Home Towner Wins Picnic Grand Prize Recipient of the brand new 1953 Mercury Automobile, the Grand Award of the East Cleveland Com munity Picnic Committee at its annual outing at Euclid Beach Park Wednesday evening, Septem ber 2nd, is Mrs. Margaret Hart, 13908 Strathmore ave. Her corresponding stub both with name and address was drawn by 10-year-old Patricia Or wig of 14716 Dover ave. The Grand Award winner is the wife of Herbert Hart, an Oliver Corp, employee and chair man of the Boy Scout Committee of Christ the King parish. They do not own a car. Upon reaching home and sur prising her husband with the good news, Mrs. Hart quickly put in a long distance call to daughter, Peggy, now Mrs. D. M. Masey of White Plains, N. Y. She must share the family surprise with brothers Robert, employed at Wm. Taylor Son & Co., and Melvin, a Cathedral Latin pupil who is often heard over the Sunday Fairytale Hour. Patricia made three attempts to help the picnic committee dispose of the car. On the first try, the person whose name appeared on the stub was on his honeymoon. On the second try, the stub was unsigned. Regulations require the presence of the person whose stub is drawn, and his signature on the ticket. Mrs. Hart’s ticket met both of these requirements. He is the Rev. Clifton J. Robin son whose sermon on sharing with God inspired the Tecumseh, Mich. miller, Perry Hayden, to plant one cubic inch of wheat (Dynamic Ker nels) whose succeeding crops in term inspired the movie “God Is My Landlord.” The picture was pro duced under the direction of Mr. Hayden, Henry Ford and Life Magazine.

The peanut onslaught is the sig nal for the annual observance of National Kids Day by East Cleve land Kiwanis. Bob Kerr, chairman of the 1953 National Kids Day observance em phasizes the fact that 100 per cent of the money received from the peanut sale spent right here in East Cleveland. It is the main source of income for the club’s active Youth Program through which it aids and backs various activities among youth, and also assist in individual cases where a helping hand is needed.

This is culmination of the trip which Ross Firestone and Frank Hamilton are enjoying to close a summer abroad. The last East Clevelanders heard from the two cyclists was their open letter to the Leader, relating their experiences in the British Isles. The boys will be home in time to return to college, Ross to Chicago U. and Frank to Case. The boys crossed the Channel to Calais, France and cycled through Belgium, Germany, Aus tria Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco and France. Now they are in Gay Paree. From the letters home the boys give high points of the tour as the two Passes in the Swiss Alps, the Rhine River scenery, the glaciers, the Jungfraujoch and the resorts along the Riviera. In the Alps they climbed on their bicycles 4000 feet to coast the next 20 miles. In Florence, Italy they stayed at the International House for four days. In Paris—here food and lodging can easily match those of the U.S.A., they had access to a school dormitory, right in the cen ter things, with room and two meals a day for $1.50, thanks to information from fellow hostelers. Here Frank sought to locate Prof. Walton of Case, to learn he had already returned home.

Ross has enjoyed concerts In both Florence and Paris while Frank waxes enthusiastic over the art galleries. Frank attended a Shakespeare play with a Dutchman who teaches English.

CALL NEWS to PO. 1-3378 Apartment License Fee Increased In legislation enacted by the City Commission Tuesday evehing the fee charges for apartment licenses will be upped from the flat one dollar per year to a rate based on a scale set up according to the number of suites in the apartment building. G. T. Apthorp, finance director, told the Commission that the one dollar fee which the city has charged landlords since January 1934 is insufficient to meet to day’s costs of building and fire inspections by the city. He said that dollar price was set during the depression days due to the low rents which landlords were then receiving. Previously the fee was fixed at fifty cents a year per suite. Under the new scale set up in the new ordinance, landlords pay the following license fees, effec tive with January, 1954. 3 7 16 31 to 6 suites—$3.00. to 15 suites—$6.00. to 30 suites—$9.00. suites or over—$15.00. answer to a question Mr. Tn Apthorp said the Building Depart ment records show 287 apart ments with three to six suites, 155 apartments with seven to 15 suites 81 apartments with 16 to 30 suites, and 14 apartments with 31 suites or more. The new legislation will up the 537 which the city has been re ceiving each year from 537 apart ment owners to $2,730. This sum, it is explained, will more nearly meet the city’s costs of its con tinuing building and fire inspec tions of apartment buildings.
