Local history: Hydrogen bomb was Akron’s concern in 1954
Nuclear annihilation was on the minds of Greater Akron residents 60 years ago.A month after U.S. scientists detonated a hydrogen bomb on Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, the fallout wasn’t just radioactive. It was psychological.The March 1954 blast was the largest U.S. test ever exploded and unleashed a force 1,000 times greater than the atomic bombs dropped in 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II.The 15-megaton H-bomb produced a 99,000-degree fireball that formed a mushroom cloud 60 miles high and 100 miles wide, contaminating almost 7,000 square miles.The Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union surely would escalate. Was civilization doomed?As the rubber capital of the world, Akron was considered a prime target for attack. In April 1954, Beacon Journal writers Betty Jaycox and Dick Dietz interviewed dozens of people to gauge public fears.The responses, ranging from helpless to hopeful, offer insight into the mindset 60 years ago. Would the reactions be the same today?• Al Rauckhorst, 878 Witwer Ave., B.F. Goodrich rubber worker: “If I knew an H-bomb were to be set off here, I don’t know what I’d do. Maybe I’d get in a car and try to drive away, but they probably wouldn’t let us use cars. Or maybe I’d dig a hole. What good is it to run? I might just as well stay here and die.”• Marion Knowles, 275 Melbourne Ave.: “My first instinct in case of attack would be to get away from the city, but I would turn on the radio and follow instructions. Besides, we couldn’t leave behind our hospital cases, our children in the Children’s Home, or our old and infirm.”• Mary Bodman, 145 Conger Ave.: “We have a plane that my husband uses in his business, and if such an alarm should ever come, we plan to fly with our three children to central Indiana, far enough south of the steel mills of Gary to have a chance for survival.”• Ann Nichols, 38 Beck Ave., secretary of the Temple Restaurant Equipment Co.: “We have already talked about what we would do, and we’re going to hold a family meeting to make definite plans. Communications would probably be tied up completely, so we are going to all walk to a certain meeting point so that we can leave the city together.”• A.C. Sherrill, 253 Oakgrove Drive, Coventry Township, personnel director of Columbia Southern Chemical Corp., Barberton: “We can make simple preparations at home like putting in a supply of food and water in a protected spot in the basement. Everyone should have a personal plan of some sort. It’s no longer realistic to think of the use of highways. Sections of the city must become self-serving for a while.”• James Rounds, 1271 Hardesty Blvd., butcher: “The bomb will get you anyway. There’s no place to go except to try to keep from being trampled to death. I feel almost a complete helplessness about it.”• Ralph Bergmann, 1842 Lancaster St., Cuyahoga Falls, assistant director of research for United Rubber Workers: “What concerns me is not that the hydrogen bomb can kill me. Any bomb can do that. I’m concerned with its far-reaching effects on civilization. I don’t want to return to the Middle Ages and have to grow my own food and weave my own cloth — if I survive.”• George D. Culler, 605 Malvern Road, Akron Art Institute director: “People can’t function under a realization of destruction. So they turn off their thoughts about it completely. The result is apathy. I don’t think anyone could imagine what the hydrogen bomb means and then live with that as a constant factor.”• Mack Ellick, 923 Hamlin St., Polsky’s salesman: “I believe in letting things take their course. Why worry about what we can’t do anything about? The bomb is so tremendous, it’s hard to see anything to offset it.”• William Williams, 4424 Ruth Ave., Barberton, president of Allied Chemical: “Wondering who will be the first to jump with the bomb makes me uneasy. We’re not out of reach and a big rubber center is an obvious target. I’m more apprehensive since news of the H-bomb broke.”• William Forster, 71 Nebraska St., Akron City Hospital assistant administrator: “If a person has a firm grasp on life and strong religious convictions, this will cover his anxieties. I have no thoughts of escaping the area of destruction. … The best chance is to sit tight.”• Antigone Lardas, 868 Forest Drive: “Who would be crazy enough to drop such a bomb? Russia knows we have the bomb and we know Russia has it. If we drop them on each other, no one will ever win such a war. There would be nothing left of either country that anyone would want.”• Ray Myers, 196 Aqueduct St., police and fire signal chief: “The H-bomb has caused me to do less thinking. If it gets to us, we won’t have to worry about what we should have done. But I don’t think either side dares use it. Life looks just as sweet to them as to us.”• Howard Bachtel, 471 Westmoreland St., South High teacher: “The H-bomb is not of immediate concern. International tensions will have to become much greater than they are now. I feel, however, that we are subconsciously aware of the concept. It takes nothing to start a conversation about it.”• Virginia Harwick, 475 Delaware Ave., Harwick Standard Chemical Co. chairman: “The Allied nations must band together to make treaties with Russia and her satellites, treaties that will outlaw the bomb as a weapon of warfare. But no treaty or agreement will work unless there is a religious spirit through the world.”• Charles F. Burke, 421 Merriman Drive, assistant to the president at General Tire: “Too much emphasis on one weapon to the exclusion of others will put us in for a bad surprise. Every time a weapon is developed, a good defense is prepared. The weapon to worry about is the one we haven’t heard of. I don’t think the H-bomb is a threat to Akron today.”• Rabbi Morton Applebaum, 386 Delaware Ave., Temple Israel: “Science ought to stop for a while so the spirit of man can catch up. We’re geared to a war psychology, concentrating our efforts on destruction. Subconsciously, everyone is terrified. It doesn’t show in the daily routine. You notice it when people stop to talk about the bomb.”• Cecilia Amelia, 630 Fouse Ave., Acme worker: “If more people went to church, the hydrogen bomb wouldn’t be dropped. Prayer is the greatest power to save us all. If we ever have a hydrogen alert, I want to be in St. Hedwig’s Church when it comes.”• Malcolm Hendry, 1816 19th St., Cuyahoga Falls, B.F. Goodrich research chemist: “I consider Christianity the only solution. The more influence in that direction, the more chance to survive. The trouble is this is a slow process. I’m an optimist. I don’t believe they’ll drop the H-bomb on us.”• Charlotte Garrigan, 1953 Tudor Ave., Cuyahoga Falls: “I have faith in the future. People always think they have a future, no matter what danger they face. Even the boys in combat thought they had a future, and I think our way of life would survive, even if we were threatened with the hydro­gen bomb.”Copy editor Mark J.

Bunny egg hunters blessed by Old World tradition
CUYAHOGA FALLS: An old European Easter tradition meshed with contemporary holiday fervor on Saturday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, where traditional parishioners brought baskets of food to be blessed before Sunday dinner while others brought empty baskets, also to be blessed, and then filled by children foraging for bunny eggs.The blessing is rooted in Slavic Catholic tradition, later adopted throughout the Catholic Church in America. The event, during which a pastor mixes food with prayer and holy water, marks the end of the six penitent weeks of Lent.It’s traditional and wholesome for some, who have grown up in the shadows of their heritage.“Every thing we had [growing up], we made it,” Anna Svendsen said with a Slavic accent.The Cuyahoga Falls resident is a second-generation immigrant from Ukraine. She set down her homemade basket, a family heirloom, at the altar at St. Joe’s. Inside was fresh-churned butter, kielbasa, goat cheese, horseradish root and Easter bread.Decorated blow-out eggs, not the contemporary hard-boiled and painted kind, lined Svendsen’s basket, which was covered in a pristine cloth embroidered in Ukranian national colors, yellow and blue.Svendsen sat with dozens of parishioners in the pews listening to readings from the book of Deuteronomy from the Old Testament. Beside her was Rosemary Dzatko, a fellow old soul of East European descent.Dzatko, a 30-year member of St. Joe’s, was raised with the blessing tradition.“It’s just how you start your Easter,” she said, holding a basket covered in a family cloth, which she said is more than a century old.Beneath the cloth were smoked meats, eggs, a horseradish beet relish “and wine, of course,” she added with a chuckle.“This is old world,” said Rose Mercurio, head sacristan at the church, pointing to the traditional and homemade trappings of Easter dinner. “That’s new,” she added, pointing to a basket filled with store-bought bread and Russell Stover’s chocolate bunnies. “As time goes by, traditions do fall,” observed Mercurio, encouraged by the younger turnout on Saturday. “Younger folks are keeping up.”Regardless of its origin, the Rev. Jared Orndorff blessed the food by flinging holy water from an aspergillum and giving prayer.Then, he invited the children to the front to receive another blessing before being turned loose to collect Easter eggs at St. Joseph School, a K-8 building less than a block away. The children squinted and giggled as Orndorff splashed their faces with holy water.Isabelle Ubelhart, a 9-year-old student at St. Joe’s, brushed the droplets from her face with her right hand, before crossing her heart. Isabelle and her family attended the Saturday Mass and blessing for the first time.“We didn’t really know what to expect,” said Tom Ubelhart, her father.It was a new experience for the couple, who noted that at such a young age, every Easter is new to the two girls. While the blessing may be novel to the Ubelhart family, youngest daughter Gabby has a firm grasp of what to look forward to each year. “Easter Bunny gets you eggs,” she said. The blessed children left the church and skipped down the street, swinging empty baskets in the spring sunshine on their way to the school, where older children hastily hid eggs.

Troublesome Cuyahoga Falls intersection to get new signs
CUYAHOGA FALLS: Cuyahoga Falls City Council on Monday will hear details about the signage designed to solve the problems at the intersection of State Road and Portage Trail.Drivers have been complaining since July about a median installed on State Road. The complaints increased as bad weather faded temporary lane markings, causing some motorists traveling south to nearly miss a jog to the left to avoid the median. Northbound motorists have their own problems with the road divider. They say the graduating concrete base is difficult to see at night, even after a reflector was put in place. Several vehicles drove onto the snow-covered base of the median during the winter.City officials hope the signs will give direction to drivers as they manage new turn lanes and traffic flow.City council also will learn why the paving company that worked on that intersection is asking for just over half million dollars more because of delays in the project.According to the proposed ordinance, it was necessary to adjust the scope of work beyond what was originally estimated, because of changes in the Portage Crossing development plans.Those changes required additional work on the roadways, traffic signals, lane structure, and other work, delaying the project’s completion and causing the Karvo Paving to incur additional costs.Mayor Don Walters is asking Falls city council to approve additional payments up to $572,280.66.The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Cuyahoga Falls Natatorium.

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP: Some were shot.Others were injured in land mine explosions, by rocket or mortar attacks, by roadside bombs or struck by shrapnel from grenades or many other ways.Every member of a veterans’ group that met on Saturday morning had one life-altering and dramatic thing in common.All were recipients of the Purple Heart, the award given to members of the military who have been killed or wounded in battle.“There are so many people who don’t understand that freedom isn’t free,” said Bill Maxwell, 83, a Marine veteran of the Korean War and a member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 699 with its 151 members.There are fifteen chapters of the Military Order of the Purple Heart in Ohio and 478 chapters nationwide.The Akron area chapter, Chapter 699, was established in 1999 and disbanded in 2000 and then was re-established again in 2011.While most of the members of Chapter 699 are Vietnam veterans, there are some World War II and Korean vets along with younger veterans from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, like Rob Ballis and Bryan Marshall.Ballis, 34, of Cuyahoga Falls, an Army Iraq veteran, was wounded in 2005 in Iraq when shrapnel from a rocket went into his side.The group, Ballis said, gives him a chance to meet with other veterans who have been wounded in combat.“It helps talking to the Vietnam guys,” said Ballis, who said he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).Marshall, 35, of Portage County’s Mantua Township, served 12 years in the Air Force and in the Army.He was injured from a roadside bomb blast that killed three of his friends in a truck in front of him while serving in the Army in April 2007. Married and the father of two, Marshall is helped with his PTSD with a service dog named Mic that stays by his side to assist him. “He brings me back to the moment,” said Marshall.Talking to the older vets helps greatly, he said.“I am just trying to get my bearings,” he said.Every Wednesday, some members of the group spend time at the Summit County Veterans Service Commission on East Waterloo Road in Akron, greeting vets who show up for help.The national group was chartered by Congress in 1958 and has 45,000 members.The website of the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor — — estimates that 1.8 million Purple Heart medals have been awarded.The Department of Veterans Affairs reports that the award was first issued by General George Washington as the “Badge of Military Merit” in 1782 and was then reintroduced as the Purple Heart on Feb. 22, 1932, on the 200th anniversary of Washington’s birth.Paul Suscinski, a 66-year-old Vietnam Marine veteran from Norton who is retired from the insurance business, was shot twice in 1966 in Vietnam and later served a second tour in Vietnam. He said being wounded and receiving a Purple Heart, “opened my eyes to the realization that there is a God and there is a higher being than all of us and he saved my life that day.”At Saturday’s meeting, Larry Emery, 70, a Marine Vietnam veteran from Plain Township, said the prayer.“We come to you with thankful hearts for this time together,” Emery said as the vets bowed their heads together.Bill Maxwell, of Springfield Township, was wounded in December 1950 during the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir in the Korean War.“A grenade blew a hole in my leg,” he said of his injury.Maxwell likes talking to the younger members of the group, even though speaking of war experiences brings up much pain.The fact is, said Maxwell, an Ohio Bell retiree, that there is a price for freedom and that is what everyone who ever received a Purple Heart has paid.“It costs somebody,” he said. “It cost me a bit.”Jim Carney can be reached at 330-996-3576 or

Tallmadge rec center director accused of criminal trespassing
Police don’t know why. All they know, a detective said, is the Tallmadge recreation center director went inside the adjoining Summa Health Care offices seven times last month.Once inside, police said, David Cooper would spend anywhere from two to 11 minutes in Summa’s rehabilitation offices.What he did in the offices is not clear, police Lt. Ron Williams said Friday.Cooper, 55, did not steal anything nor did he access medical records held on the health-care provider computers, Williams said.He is, however, on paid leave and charged in Stow Municipal Court with seven misdemeanor counts of criminal trespassing. He pleaded not guilty through his attorney on Wednesday. A trial is scheduled for June 3.His attorney, Kevin Breen, could not be reached for comment.Warning givenWilliams said Cooper was warned earlier this year to stop entering the Summa offices, which are housed alongside the city-run recreation center on North Avenue.Instead, Cooper continued using his access key to enter the offices, police said.Video surveillance images, police said, show Cooper went inside the offices seven times between March 4 and March 23, usually after 4 or 5 p.m., when Summa closed. On one occasion, he went inside the offices at 9 a.m. on a Sunday. Video suggests Cooper would stay in the offices from two to 11 minutes at a time, Williams said. He was apparently alone on each occasion, Williams said.What Cooper did while inside the offices is not yet known.“That’s what we’re working on,” Williams said. “I think I can say with confidence that nothing was stolen and no medical records were viewed. But as for what he did, I’m not certain enough to say for sure at this point.”Jim Gosky, a Summa spokesman, confirmed Friday afternoon that no medical records were compromised. He said he could not comment further because of the ongoing police investigation.Access to Summa officesTallmadge Mayor David Kline placed Cooper on paid leave March 28 pending the outcome of the criminal case.He said Cooper, as the center director, had a key that gave him access to the Summa offices. However, without an emergency, Summa was entitled to 24-hour notice before their offices could be entered.Kline said he is unaware why Cooper would have entered the offices. He said he first learned of the alleged trespassing through another employee.“I’m shocked. I’m disappointed. That’s out of his character,” he said.Cooper is the second recreation center director to be accused of criminal misconduct. He was hired in 2008 at $58,000 a year to replace former director Thomas Headrick.Headrick was fired that same year after pleading guilty to theft charges. He was accused of stealing more than $100,000 by using city workers for his private grass-cutting business and spending nearly $1,900 of city money for employees’ Christmas presents.Cooper, a Kent State University graduate, had been the assistant director of recreation in Wadsworth for 19 years. He previously was the program director for the Cuyahoga Falls YMCA.Phil Trexler can be reached at 330-996-3717 or He can be followed on Twitter at
