Saline Savings Bank The One Story Bank on the Corner Fifteen Growers Spend Small Sum to Market 50,000 Bushels. i By D. L. Runnnels ; Sparta, Dec. 13.—Fifteen fruit growers in the vicinity of "Peach Ridge,'.' a community southwest of Sparta, realized a huge dividend this year from a small advertisement placed in 14 daily and weekly newspapers", in "Michigan at harvest- time. | The advertisement was published at a cost of less than $40 and it was the means of selling 50,000 bushels Michigan Pigs Make Ton-Litter Mark in Pork Producing Marath'on:- _3£.^fr_5^_?£2fr5!'3a'S_?£^^ The Quality Grocery | PHONE 86 I | FOR GOOD THINGS TO EAT 1 I •_ :_ I J Holiday Groceries | 1 At no other time of the year are you as particular | I about" the quality of your Groceries as you are during | | the Holiday season.

Costs more per gallon—less per mile D>ND AT ALL DIXIE STATIONS of peaches at fair prices, besides j thousands of bushels of apples, plums and pears. It drew buyers to their farms from as far south as Detroit and Toledo and from many consuming centers in eastern and northern "Michigan. A "blind" advertisement was used. It contained no grower's name. It merely invited buyers to come to "Peach Ridge" and peach hungry buyers came with automobiles arid trucks and hauled the fruit away as rapidly as it could be picked. Some came early in the morning, others in ! the afternoon and a few as late as > midnight and 2 o'clock in the morn- j ing. No matter what hour they i came, customers were pleasingly I served. ' . | Philip Klenk & Sons, whose farm is located in the center of Peach Ridge, acted as information bureau for the 15 growers. They placed the advertisement in the newspapers. Invariably buyers called at their farm first. When unable to supply fruit they called their neighbors until the buyers' wants were satisfied. Uniform prices vyere asked by each grower for the various grades. "We are all "satisfied that it pays farmers to advertise," said Philip Klenk this week. "Anyone of us could easily have afforded to pay the entire cost of the advertisement as the cost was so small. Some of us only made one or two trips to the Grand Rapids market with peaches while two growers sold their entire crop at their farms." There was nothing unusual about the advertisement to draw buyers. It was simply written _and read as follows: "For Sale—50,000 bushels of peaches by the bushel or truckload: South Havens will ripen about Sept. 5; El- bertas about Sept. 20. Drive to Peach ■Ridge section, 8 miles west of Rockford or 10 miles north of Grand Rapids on M-37 to Ballard's Corners, then west." Among the larger daily newspapers used were the Grand Rapids Press, Flint Journal, Saginaw News-Courier, and Bay City Times-Tribune. The same advertisement also appeared in newspapers in Coopersville, Lansing, Owosso, "Ionia, Belding, Alma, Greenville, "Mt. Pleasant, St. Johns and Big Rapids.—Ann Arbor News. *"f Leon C. Brady, Unionville, is the winner of the 1928 Michigan ton-litter contest. Thirteen Chester White pigs which weighed. 2,805 pounds at six months of .age ^brought home the bacon for the Unionville man. K'gh priced feeds, and low priced pork reduced the^farmers interest in the" ton-ilitter^coift'ests this year and the number of contestants was lower than in previous years. The winning lot of pigs receive'd skim milk, whole oats, and barley after weaning and were finished on bajrley. Other leaders inj the contest and the weights reached by their pigs were: Harry Ward, McBain, 2,614; Bert Parker, Mason, 2,451; Fred Shilling, Coldwater, two litters, 2,446 and 2,328; John York, Portland, two -litters, 2,335 and 2,178; Warren Lau- baugh, Hastings, 2,290; Cox and Son, Coldwater, 2,275; and H. S. Haas, Scotts, 2,090. ; Harry "Ward, McBain, has entered the ton-litter contest five of the six years during which it has been conducted and each time has placed his pigs in the heavyweight class. The pigs which" were oy/ned by Bert Parker, Mason^were'-mafketed 15 days before they were six months old in order to reach a better market. The ton-litter contest in Michigan will be discontinued next year by the animal husbandry department at Michigan State college in favor of the pig-crop contest which began this year. Milan engaged Saline Friday in the first game of the season and gave' the purple and white team sucha trouncing as they have not had at the start of a season for several, years, by a score of 16 to 9. Going almost to the opposite extreme of the form they displayed last week, the Saline boys were almost powerless against the visitors. Had it not been for Martin, who was injected at the half, the local quintet would have suffered a great deal more. He rang up two baskets from the middle of the floor and did some nice defensive work. The Saline passing attack was poor but the shooting was worse. By the score you see the Milan margin was two> baskets and three foul shots. Saline had (or took) a good many more tries at the basket than did Milan. F. Carr could not hit the basket with ajiandfull of sand, while the rest of the team was not much better. Next i week can be spent to good alvantage Lwith plenty of shooting practice. Both fouls and field goals were missed a-plenty that should have been completed into points on the Saline total. Not one alibi can be offered for the loss of the game. Needless" to say Milan wasn't so hot, but Saline was rotten. The game also showed that the big gap at center has not yet been filled. Bruckner was high point man with 5, while Martin followed with 4. The squad will increase their practice this week and, in all probability, will practice this week in a big gym at least once to get used to Clinton's big floor. . Even though we lost last week, don't miss the game this week at Clinton. Remember, a team even though not successful at times will not improve any faster if it is not supported. BE THERE!

LYDIA ANDRESS CLOUGH Mrs. Lydia Andress Clough died-at Ann Arbor Monday evening, after a long illness. She was born July 2, 1871 and had been^a lifelong resident of- the neighborhood of. her home west of town. On February 18, 1892 she was united- in marriage with William Clough, who died July 31,. 1924. Deceased is survived by one niece and one. nephew. Mrs. Clough was a member of St. Paul's church and La dies 'Aid Society.- Funeral" services are held this afternoon," 1:30 at the home and at 2:00 o'clock at St.:Paul's church, Rev. C. H. Wittbracht officiating. Interment in Oakwood* cemetery. A company of almost two hundred persons, headed by Gloria Swanson and Director Raoul Walsh, spent three weeks at Catalina Island and aboard a tramp ste'amer off the coast of Southern California, filming exterior scenes for "Sadie Thmopson," Miss Sjvanson's second independent screen offering, which will be shown at the Liberty theatre Saturday and Sunday. The wharf sequence of the picture depicting arrival of "Sadie Thompson" and other characters of the well known story at Pago Pago, was filmed at the Catalina Island Isthmus. The shore line on either side of the wharf was transformed into a complete .tropical setting, with the result that swaying cocoanut palms anc native huts caused visiting tourist0 to rub • their eyes in disbelief. Among the extra players taken or "location was an entire, company of Marines, many of whom were actually former members of the service and a group of Samoan natives head ed by a chief whose home is withir a few miles of Pago Pago, the local? of the story. "Sadie Thompson" has been haile-" everywhere as the picture that is des tined to establish a new peak in Mis- Swanson's career. Its story, detail ing a terrific battle for supremac; between a social outcast from the byways of San Francisco and Hono lula, and a reformer of almost despot ic power in the South Seas, is tht most dramatic vehicle the producer star has ever presented. Lionel Barrymore is cast as "Alfred Atkinson," the reformer. Violin Tower. lessons given by For Sale—House and lot. A. Jordan. Dorothy 9tf Mrs. C. 9tf Big reduction on radios at H.

C. GIRLS LOSE TO MILAN Saline lost their second successive game to Milan here Friday night, 16 to 14. Milan had no trouble in working the ball down to scoring position due to her elongated center, Barnes. The local girls gained a slender lead at the start but after that were always behind. Cook of Milan led ,in scoring by garnering four baskets and a foul shot. Saline's offensive power .improved greatly over last week's contest with the Alumni. Center showed much improvement, especially F. Hertler, who did succeed in getting free for a pa$s often throughout the game. Capt. Rogers played her usual bril- -liant game. The guards seemed to follow their forwards w«ll until they got the ball ready for a shot, theii they proved a trifle too short for the tall Milan forwards. Saline's forwards broke even in scoring, though each missed enough shots to double the score. MILAN (16) SALINE (14) Cook, rf, 9 7 Heilman Bassett, rf, 7.—-. _ 7, Mood Barnes, c F.
