Kirk Junior High School PTA, in a city wide'project, is going to find out what children are doing outside of school hours. The project will be initiated at a conference in Kirk music room at 8:00 .m., Wednesday, October 14. The meeting is open to all parents and to the public. i will lead the meting starting the community project. The project’s i purpose is to uncover the problems and assess the resources for teen age activities in East Cleveland. From the conference meeting Dr. Wallen expects to find the ma 1 terial for three or four additional meetings which will directly tackle problems and spotlight assets of fered by East Cleveland for whole some teen-age activity. Since considerable time is neces sary for the evaluation of the ma terial that will be gathered at this first meeting the following meet ings are being scheduled for Jan uary, February and March of 1954. Doctor Wallen also conducts a TV program which has won a na tional award and recognition as the first TV study program with college credit. This program, on general psychology, is carried by station WEWS. Dr. Wallen has worked out a unique approach to get the facte directly from the parents. The meeting is divided into three 2-minute periods, as follows: (1) Explaining procedure. Ac tion parents can take to help in the solution of any problems that may be uncovered. (2) Division of parents into small groups, each under a trained “reporter.” Discussion of areas of interest and decision of three most important matters they want to tackle. Reporter will phrase and present decision to Dr. Wallen. If any group is unable to arrive at agreement the minority may re port separately at the close of dis cussion period. (3) Dr. Wallen will evaluate the items, to be listed on a chart, and show in what way they should be analyzed. Thus by group action the ex perience and observation of hun dreds of parents as to what the teen-age problems are in East Cleveland will be spotlighted. With recognition of the prob lems and possibilities for teen agers Dr. John Culber, Professor at Case Institute of Technology and his program committee with the council of Doctor Wallen, will be able to select the experts who can tell parents how to meet these problems and how to make the most of available possibilities. Doctor Culver who conceived the series of programs says, “while we assume that some of the problems which we may uncover will be common to many communities we also expect that there will be some problems peculiar to East Cleve land. Through this series with par ents we will not only recognize our problems but will have expert ad vice on what action to take and will be able to enlist the help of our very active service organiza tions in providing the help to make East Cleveland a better city for our children.” Representatives of several civic groups have indicated unofficially their interest in this study and their willingness to assist in action recommended by PTA. Doctor John Culver will act as moderator. After initiating the project in the first meeting Dr. Wallen will remain as consultant on all future steps in the program.

E. Blakely of May fair and Mrs. Ray Nausner of Chambers are confident that, due to the success of the Mothers Hour, the attendance for this coming sea son will exceed that of last year. Mrs. Elna Hukari, North Branch Library librarian and the school chairmen are personally contacting every Pre-School and Kindergarten mother. An invitation is also ex tended to the mothers of Grammar School age pupils as this year’s topics are aimed for all parents, regardless of the age of the child. This Mother’s Hour originated with Mrs. Hukari, who believed that many mothers would be in terested in discussing mutual prob lems while waiting around the li brary, or shopping, while their children were having their story hour. This once-a-month program with talks by persons prominent in their respective field were then de veloped by Mrs. Hukari and the Pre-school chairmen of Mayfair and Chambers PTA. The first year topics dealt with the physical well being of the child. This year’s topics will emphasize the mental development of the child and the mothers role.™ -A ihdL I'":'. ’,s 4'r-' Convicted drunken drivers and owners of abandoned ice boxes or similar containers will find stiff penalties awaiting them under newly enacted legislation.
