During the first six months of the year 113 permits issued totaled A valuation of $2,038,203.00. The 1953 over-all total was $1,568,247. The largest single permit in June is for $900,000, representing an expansion program of Tow niotor Corporation.

Hostel Travel Reveals Beauty Of The British Isles To Local Youths Doing the British Isles and Europe via bicycle, with their over-night stops at Youth Hostels is the thrilling summer being ex perienced by Frank Hamilton, jr., of 1836 Knowles st. and Ross Fire stone, jr., of 1870 Burnette ave. The boys were classs mates in the Shaw June 1950 class. The trip across was aboard a Student Ship from Montreal. On board were 500 boys and girls, all about 20 years of age. Some of the travelers were “on their own,” some were enroute to summer schools abroad, and some in con ducted groups. Ross and Frank were “on their own.” Mornings aboard were filled with lectures and discussions. After noons and evenings were given to recreation. Dress was always in formal. After nine days, the ship docked and the East Cleveland travelers began their tour from London. Frank likes his new bicycle, bought in London, with its hand brake, steel clips that come over the toes, four gears ard fast easy pedalling. He writes it does hills no other bike could do. Their first cycling outside of London was to Cambridge. Here a former teacher of Frank’s (Uni versity of Chicago) and his New Volume No. XJ—No. 31 mits are the 18 houses being built in Forest Hill Development by the Scholtz Construction Co., of To ledo. They are located within a square, facing Lee rd. on the east side. A new medical building, and a Sisters Home in Christ the King parish are included in the new con struction, together with four stor age tank installations. In dollars the new homes ac count for approximately $845,000 in the six-month period. Industry contributed $920,000 and commer cial firms $132,000 in construction. The alteration, repair and addition permits add up about $25,000. East Clevelanders spent about $25,000 to build much needed garages. The three suburbs which kept in step with East Cleveland in the Greater Cleveland listing show ths following June permit construction figures: 552,815, Bedford University Heights $1, Lakewood $1,039,370 and $1,919,920. it cannot be predicted to While what figure construction permits may go for the last six months of the year, it should be fairly good in comparison. For instance, the new $10,500,000 apartment proj ect for the east side of Superior rd. in Forest Hill Park is expected to get half of its proposed build ings under way this year. The construction boom, in addi tion to adding new homes and im proving many others, adding new industrial operations and improv ing others, will also have its ef fect on the city’s tax duplicate and consequently, on the tax return. G. T. Apthorp, Finance Director for East Cleveland points out that whatever portion of new building construction is finished by April 1st goes on the duplicate for that year. Tax returns come in the fol lowing year. Since the far larger portion of the more than two million dollars in. construction valuation reached here the first six months is listed after April 1st, no perceptible tax return from this 6-month period of construction can be anticipated here until 1955.

Frank went “punting” on the river Cam to get the lovely views of Cambridge’s lawns and buildings. “From Cambridge,” writes Frank, “we cycled the 35 miles to Peterborough in 3% hours to see the Cathedral which dates back to the 12th century. We took a train the 100 miles to Wakefield, a hilly, coal mining district and cycled and walked to Haworth, home of the Brontes. “We made a short bus trip into Bradford were Ross had engaged to buy a loud speaker.

Fight Polio With Your Own Blood What is the No. 1 health con cern of thousands of people during the hot weather season—POLIO. Is the fight again polio your fight? The Red Cross says it is and explains it this way: If you have ever had measles, for ex ample, you know you usually don’t get it again. Why? Because your body produces fighters that guard it against a second attack. These fighters, called antibodies, are car ried by the gamma globulin in your blood. Many people have had polio in some form (Y’ou may have thought it was just a cold) and thus have antibodies to fight that disease.. What protects you can protect others. Right here is where you can become part of a crusade— because gamma globulin is made from the pooled blood of many in dividuals. East Cleveland needs 180 pints of blood on Thursday, August 27th. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 15S37 Euclid ave., is host to the Red Cross Mobile unit from 1:00 to 7:00 p. m. The demands are. up, the supply down. YOUR DONATION IS URGENTLY NEEDED. CALL ER. 1-0178 OR PO. 1-3378 AND GET YOUR APPOINTMENT TO DONATE. During the past two years tests have been carried out in three polio epidemic areas. Over 50,000 children participated. What was learned is big news: that gamma globulin gives significant protec tion against the crippling that is polio's worst feature. It doesn’t prevent polio it doesn’t cure. But it does ensure that a polio victim, if given the right amount of gam ma globulin at the right time, will have only a mild case and may walk again. This summer over 5 million cubic centimeters of gamma globulin will be available. That’s a lot. But not enr"-k Po,:~ victims will re quire in ^.jbulin from the (i otinued on page 19) K*' ... A.
