And fun they had. The second “Thank you” goes to the parents.

The third “Thank you” goes to the East Cleveland Auxiliary Po lice. This band of trained volun teers added an excellent contribu tion to the two fun nights. They were on duty at all busy street intersections, ready to aid the children safely across the streets, and served in other capacities about town. The co-operation of the boys and girls, their parents, and the Auxili. ary Police added up to one of the best Hallowe’en seasons we have had says Chief of Police Weaver.

EU'JU-j AV CALL NEWS to PO. 1-3378 Tigers-Cards Clash Friday At Shaw Can Change LEL Picture Shaw High’s once battered Cardinals and now near top strength will go all out tomorrow night when they take on the Tigers of Cleveland Heights in the season’s most impor tant contest at Shaw Stadium. Kick-off time is 8 p.m. w th the box office due to open at 7 p.m. From all indications, the game could change the Lake Erie League title picture which makes for a top notch sports- attraction here. Attendance at games this year has been below par and East Cleve landers would do well to hustle to the Stadium Friday to cheer the Cards as they battle for the covet ed LEL crown. 1 son, bruises and bandages have hampered Shaw’s effectiver s. Re ports this week show that t.._ team will be almost at full strength. The only Cardinal regulars to be sidelined are Dick Follett, 220 pound a back injury sustained in the Shaker game and Deny Clay, a back who has a knee in jury. However, Coach Bob Cawrse was pleased with the work of Jim Thompson in last week’s loss to Toledo and Jim could fill the gap against Heights. Shaw’s spirit is at a high pitch this week, more so since Heights trampled Lakewood’s favored Rang ers. The whole team has been hit ting hard in practice and pointing for Friday’s tilt against the Hill toppers. Especially determined and putting forth plenty of gusto in the drills are Bill Whitacre and Jay Hunton. The two backs have missed more than half of the games this year and both would like to help the Cards end the season in fine style against Heights and Lakewood. Past Shaw-Heights games have always provided thrills a plenty for spectators. Although the Tigers should rate as favori4’**’', the spirit among the Cardinals s week just about makes the game even. The Cards will be out doing their best against the Tigers and their efforts would be greatly rewarded with a full house on hand for the big game. Band Director Bob Fraser has new^formations ready to thrill the fans ''»e the majorettes and band steps in for the halftime show. Let’s make plans to be at Fri day’s game. Come on Cardinals beat Heights!!! Sharing the spotlight will be the Football Queen and her two attendants who will be presented at this game.
