Which - - T'*-. Should Call for Prompt Action. Trim Neighboring .Heavyweights By Six to Nothing Score. Saline High kept, their 1929 .record unblemished in a game played with - Clinton Friday, winnfiig by a score of 6 to 2. Playing on a field more suited for a swimming meet than a football! game the locals scored their only touchdown in the first half, when the field was in a somewhat better condition, j Clinton, playing on their field, con- j ceded to have an excellent forward- j passing attack and outweighing the I visitors, was generally picked to win. ! Captain Klught won the toss and chose the south goal. Saline kicked . off and Clinton tried the sleeper play j on the first line up. The play work- j ed for a gain of 25 yards, but Ehe ball was called back and the big Red team penalized for offside. The play, : however, did show Saline's weak forward pass defense which was to bob ; up repeatedly allowing Clinton many j gains which should have been utilized. However, time after time, the pass was muffed when apparently it had been successful. Getting back to the description of the game, Clinton punted and after a good run-back by Klught and several successful line-plays by Carr and Schrader, an end run was tried with Wedemeyer carrying the ball. Two more successful runs carried the ball about 35 yards and netted a touch- ' down for Saline. ' The try f *?. point after touchdown ' by placement was unsuccessful due to a poor pass to Wedemeyer who was to hold the ball. . Saline kicked off again, and Clinton, unable to gain, pisnted back and Saline lost the ball on downs at mid- field as the quarter ended. Score: ' Saline 6, Clinton 0. j "Clinton was unable to gain through the line as the Saline forwards con^ - sistently outcharged her heavier lines- . men, but took to the air and getting the ball down to the purple and white eight yard line, failed to score when she was held on the fourth down IS inches from her opponent's goal. Captain Klught punted out of danger and Clinton failed to penetrate into Saline territory the rest of the quarter. She had the ball at midfield as the half ended. Score: Saline 5, Clinton 0. ' A steady rain began immediately after the third period started which continued throughout the game soaking the players and turning the play- ing field into a quagmire. The ball ' was near midfield when Winters got off an excellent punt, going out of ■ bounds on the Saline five yard line.' Klught, in an attempt to punt on the next play, fumbled the pass from center and recovered behind his own goal giving Clinton a safety, their only . score of the game. Clinton gave Sa- t line a. scare as the quarter ended, i however a pass nearly successful was incomplete in Saline's end zone and the quarter ended fighting desperately to hold their heavier opponents. Score: Saline 6, Clinton 0. The fourth period was welcomed by an additional downpour of -rain and Clinton slid through Saline~'s lighter line to Saline's 30 yard line. Several times here the charge was always stopped through failure to gain the line but more usually by incomplete passes, Saline punting immediately after gaining possession of the ball to hold her opponents. Not much more can be said of the last period "except of Saline's "never- say-die" spirit which no doubt did lower the morale of the Red and Black team. Clinton had victory within their grasp several times only to fail. Still, a wet and muddy field can hardly be called a fair contest for either team. Chelsea will be played at Cement City Friday, October 18. Be there Mrs. Wetzel, the county health nurse, visited the second grade Monday and examined the children. Some very serious and startling conditions w("sre found. ~^~ jOf the 30 children in this grade 14, ok 47%, were found to be suffering frpm eye strain or defective vision It is believed that the most of this eye trouble has been caused by improper lighting and cross lights which exist in the Jones building where these children were housed last year. There is much that might be said about this situation and its effect upon the children, how the children may be physically handicapped through life, etc.; but we will leave these comments for others. Facts are facts. SCHOOL, TAXES Tax Rate Per 1,000 Assessed Valuation in 277 Michigan High Schools. Number of Districts Amt. per $1,000 1928-1929 Less than .5.00 3 $ 5-$ 9.99 .- :. , 10 $10-$14.99 .*. , 72 .15r.19.99 94 S20-S24.99 46 $25-$29.99 24 .30 or more 22 Total number of districts reporting ! 277 Median tax rate per $1,000 $17.55 Comment—This table should be read as follows: For the year 1928- 1929, three districts have a tax rate of less than $5.00 per $1,000 assessed valuation and 16 districts have a tax rate of $5.00 to $9.99 per $1,000. I!: is rather surprising to find that 22 districts have a tax "rate "of $30 or more per $1,000 and that the median tax rate is $17.55 per $1,000. It is unnecessary to point out that school taxes in some districts have reached a point where it would be quite difficult to secure additional funds through local taxation for school support. Yet, in spite of the heavy burden, already being carried by these smaller districts, there is evidence of a willingness to increase the load in order that the boys and girls may have good educational opportunities if this is the only means available for securing additional funds. The table shows that for 1928-1929, twenty- eight per cent more districts had a tax'rate above $25 than obtained during 1927-1928, and that the median rate for all districts has been increased from $17.35 to $17.55. The tax rate in Saline averages about $9.00. It will be seen from these figures that there are very few high -schools in Michigan that have a lower tax rate than Saline.

Pat Egan, Wayne Jagger and Dick Knapp motored to Indian riyer last week, attracted by the opening of the season there to spear white fish, Cisco and carp. It was a pretty sight. They were duly and truly prepared with equipment and licenses but they didn't get any white fish and didn't want any of the other kinds. The river from the big lake Was illuminated at night with fishing jacks to look like the grand canal at Venice. There were so many fishermen that the poor fish made for their holes and stayed there.—Brooklyn Exponent.

Christian Science Notes The Christian Science Society of Saline holds its services in the hall above the Citizens bank Sunday at 10:30 a. m. Subject: Doctrine of Atonement. Testimonial meeting Wednesday evening at 7:30. m A cordial invitation is given, to all. Sunday school immediately follows the morning service to which pupils under 20 may be admitted. An exceptionally fine meeting of the Rotary Club was held at The Tavern last Thursday noon, at which C. A. Curtiss, of the Citizens Bank, discussed banks and banking as his contribution to the series of vocational talks being given from time to time by the members. We would like to be able to give his remarks in full, but as he did not have it in manuscript form we can just touch the high spots. * He took us back to the inception of banking here in Saline, when it was possible to launch such a business and issue one's own currency, and displayed a few samples of such bills. This naturally led to disaster for some, inasmuch as such banks were not under the rigid inspection and laws that obtain today. In pioneer days often the leading business man in a community, because of the fact that he usually was well-to-do and had to have considerable money on hand, as well as having a deposit in a city bank, became custodian of the funds of many who did not care to trust an old sock or can, but preferred to keep large sums in one of the few safes in the village, and as a result of this practice many small-town business men just naturally drifted into banking as a sideline, these later becoming state or national institutions, with the'flight of the years. He told of th edifferent kinds of banks being conducted today—savings, commercial, industrial, trust companies, investment, foreign exchange, etc, and described some of the equipment necessary in a modern bank. How banks are organized, chartered, special banking laws not like other corporation laws, various reports officers and directors have to make periodically, published statements, examinations required, etc., were touched upon. The speaker told of how banks are conscious of the duty owed communities and the many ways taken by officers and institutions to discharge this duty. Just why it is not possible for a local bank to loan every dollar :of its funds in the commuity was explained, which makes for added safety for depositors and is in reality a good thing for borrowers, too. The different kinds of loans permitted by law. credit information regarding customers, clearing process, banking hours, etc., added interest to his remarks. While many take advantage of thp. various services of a bank, few realize that at one time or another the officials are expected to serve as lawyers, father-confessors, and in a great many cases point the way to what in time makes for success for many an individual. Banks. advertise not to separate people from their- money in exchange for merchandise, but to save their money and add to it, and as a result depositors instead of spending money put in banks are paid by the bank to let it accumulate. In conclusion, Mr. Curtiss stated that while the merging of banks is becoming a popular thing, he thought it would be a long time before the banks of Saline would merge with the banks in the big cities.
