"One Look Convinces Women to Fight Cuyahoga Pollution The Women's City Club today joined the forces driving cleanup of the polluted Cuyahoga River. "We must have sewers fashionable," said Mrs. Albert A. Levin, president, after Mrs. S. Burns Weston, pollution committee chairman, said Cleveland is more concerned with its symphony than with sewers. Thirty members of the club took a look at the river Saturday while riding on the ship Goodtime. Club members didn't like what they saw. "We all make the pollution fight part of our program next season," said Mrs. Levin. "I was amazed at the condition of the river. Moses Cleaveland would have been shocked." Mrs. Weston said she felt that some type of federal control should be invoked to end river pollution." -- photo verso.
