I B2 Akron Beacon Journal n bd Thursday, June 21,1 984 Good afternoon Fran Murphey Festive notes end St. Cecilia's season "The Saints" are still marching. Not the Dixieland tune, but the St. Cecilia Choral Society. It was organized in 1921 and named for the patron saint of music. Forty years ago, as a World War II project, the women helped collect phonograph records for the armed forces and hospitals. A Beacon Journal story in March 1944 reported that record players were issued to some Army and Navy units but they had few records. Servicemen's requests ranged rrom opera to uersnwm ana I . The society recently had Guest Day at the Orr-ville home of member Phoebe Hostetler. She is state chairman of the Women's Committee of Blossom Music Center and sings in the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus. Mrs. Hostetler (pronounced Hoe-stet-ler) was Phoebe Jane Steiner when she graduated from Smithville High and Kent State University. She has two children, Ned of Orrville and Jane Sheard of Bay Village. Her husband, Gordon, died in 1975. Peggy Elias, the re-elected president of St. Cecilia's, is a charmer. The former Peggy Emerson was Miss Ohio and a New ft 4 Four "Saints" ready to sing ' Phoebe Peggy Paula Clarendia York model before marrying sports promoter Eddie Elias. They have two daughters, Rainy, 12, and Annie, 9. The chorus, directed by Paula J. Donoian, sang several seasonal songs for guests. Members will resume twice-monthly meetings in September. Mrs. Donoian is studying for a master's degree in voice at the University of Akron. She will move from Canton to Portage Lakes this summer. Margaret Alpeter, the society's accompanist, joined guest Ruth Bierce in a piano duet by Debussy and Tea for Two. Playing a Bach selection on a harpsichord was Clarendia Brown, a University of Tennessee graduate who is organist and choir director at Orrville Presbyterian Church. Two charter members of the society, Irene Seiberling Harrison and Harriet Doyle Parke, attended the season finale. Mrs. Harrison and her mother, Gertrude Seiberling, worked with Gertrude Stadel-man in starting the singing group at Mrs. Stadelman's home, now the Akron Woman's City Club. Mrs. Harrison was with her daughter, Sally Cochran of Charlottesville, Va., and a sister-in-law, Nancy Jackson Seiberling, visiting from North Liberty, Iowa. Nancy's husband is Franklin A. Seiberling Jr. Sharing in the festive occasion was Irene's cousin, Mildred Kelley Seiberling. Her husband is T. K. Seiberling, whose father, C. W., was F. A.'s brother. Irene Harriet I2l 11 Irl Ruth Nancy Mildred Sally Airport may get funds for helicopter hangar By Tom Ryan Beacon Journal staff writer The U.S. House Appropriations Committee Wednesday approved a military construction bill that includes $3.7 million for a National Guard helicopter hangar at the Akron-Canton Regional Airport. The committee vote moves the appropriations bill to the House floor. The Senate also must act. The proposed hangar would be on 100 acres in the northwest corner of the airport and would replace a 37-year-old facility. It would be the first stage of a three-year, $6.4 million project that calls for the funding next year of two armory buildings, each costing about $2.4 million, and funding of a $350,000 maintenance shop in the third year. Rep. Ralph Regula, R-Navarre, a member of the committee, said the helicopters kept at the hangar could be used in the event of natural disasters. "It goes far beyond the defense element," Regula said. Officials have said that construction of the hangar could begin in mid-1985 and that the total program would take until mid-1988. It was estimated that 200 to 400 workers would be employed during construction. The buildings would house about 51 aircraft and 200 vehicles assigned to the 107th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the 416th Engineer Group and the 1416th Transportation Co. About 75 full-time personnel would work out of the new headquarters, which would be used by National Guard fliers from northern Ohio. The military construction bill also includes $35.4 million for buildings at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and more than $6.4 million for other projects in Ohio. "This bill reflects a growing commitment of construction funds for Ohio," Regula said. "And that means a lot of jobs." Ohio woman raises funds for Soviet eye treatment Associated Press A 34-year-old Bedford Heights woman says she has more than enough money to travel to the Soviet Union for an eye treatment that is unavailable in the United States. Mary D'Agostino, who was blind at 18, suffers from retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative disease that attacks the retina. Soviet doctors use Encad to treat the disease. The yeast derivative is unavailable in the United States and Soviet doctors will not reveal what it contains. - Ms. D'Agostino, who lives on Social Security disability and food stamps, began trying to raise $12,000 for her trip eight months ago. She received donations from individuals and businesses. "I have about $13,500," she said Wednesday. The treatments are free, but the money is needed for transportation and lodging. C. Donald Curry, a Newark businessman who has been trying to help Ms. D'Agostino and the Walker boy, said Soviet doctors told him the woman's treatment might be Aug. 15 or Sept, 1. They'll cable and give it to me in writing," Curry said Wednesday. 1 ,3 Beacon Journal photo by Ted Walls Making room for the twins Twinsburg service director George Gresco works on construction of a new parking lot at the Chamberlin Park. It is hoped the project will be completed before Twins Day. Newburgh Hts. chief gets suspended term Associated Press Newburgh Heights Police Chief James Lukas has been given a suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to dereliction of duty. Lukas had been accused of allowing gambling at a 1982 party where he had been working off-duty as a security guard. Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Robert Lawther Wednesday sentenced Lukas to 30 days in jail and fined him $250 plus court costs. Lawther then suspended the jail term. Lukas also had been charged with bribery, complicity in gambling and operating a gambling house. All the charges except the dereliction count were dropped in the plea arrangement, Gary Potts, assistant county , prosecutor, said. Potts told Lawther that Lukas was cooperating with authorities in their investigation into allegations of gambling and public corruption. Aurora regulates drilling of wells for oil and gas The Aurora City Council Wednesday night set conditions for oil and gas drilling permits. The ordinance requires, among other things, that a well be at least 1,000, feet from homes and that it not change the character of the area. The ordinance also requires that the planning commission hold a public hearing before acting on any drilling application. The council also gave the second of three readings on a plan covering the first phase of a housing development at East Garfield and Eggleston roads. The property is owned by Dr. Leonard J. Gammel. The development, Thorn Hill Estates, would include 25 to 30 houses on 1.5-acre lots. The council should vote on the plan at Monday's meeting at 8 p.m. in the Town Hall. The council also is to introduce legislation Monday to appropriate $23,500 to improve sections of Ohio 43. The state is paying 90 percent of the project. Plans for the highway improvement were expanded to include berms and better drainage because more state money became available. The affected sections run from Aurora's southern boundary to Ohio 82 and from Treat Road to the city's northern boundary. Police Chief Ted George is expected to offer suggestions to improve a late-night sales ordinance that has been tabled. 1 1 reserve police officers appointed in N. Royalton North Royalton Mayor John G. Halak has appointed 11 reserve police officers, as recommended by Police Chief James Zindroski. The new officers are Gerry Moncol, Uwe Wolfram, Betty Points, Craig Points, Allen Pniewski, David Moson, George Mader, Michael Klein, Bradley Glaze, Donald Flowers and Eddie Bedoe. In other action Wednesday, the City Council authorized the mayor to advertise for bids to repave Abbey Road from Royalton Road (Ohio 82) to Albion Road. The council also changed its next regular meeting from Wednesday, July 4, to Thursday, July 5. NOTES & VOTES Portage County The Portage County Library Board voted Wednesday night to ask for $863,000 in intangible tax collections for 1985 from the county Budget Commission. The library received $525,000 this year from the taxes on investments. The county makes about $1 million a year from the tax, which it splits among the county library, based in Hiram, and the Kent and Ravenna library sys tems. The Kent and Ravenna libraries have not yet filed their 1985 fund requests Lukas was indicted in April along with 20 others in an investigation that earlier resulted in the indictment of three suburban mayors and 11 others. The mayors Louis Bacci of Cuyahoga Heights, Armand Mas-ten of Linndale and Arthur West-fall of Valley View have denied any wrongdoing and are awaiting trial. Lukas was a patrolman for 10 years before becoming Newburgh Heights police chief in January 1976. He was suspended following his indictment April 24. The charges stemmed from a Jan. 24, 1982, party at the Rug-gles Inn, a tavern in Newburgh Heights. The best deals on wheels are in the automotive section of today's Beacon Journal.
