A. Kalder. Inside doors have not arrived and the-linoleum floors cannot be laid until all of the inside work has been completed, so that considerable delay is expected on this score. The placing bf the seats is contingent upon the laying of the linoleum floor, which means more Of a delay, making it the second week in October before the new -building can 'be occupied. - It was previously- thought .that the new building would •be occupied toy October 1. A new teacher has been employed (by the board of education to. teach German, mathematics, and English. He is Robert Starring, a graduate of Western State Normal college. Discussion of the "landscaping of the school grounds and of the purchase of stage equipment occupied, the school . board at ,-the regular monthly meeting held Monday night. In addition, the bills were disposed of. at the meeting. Construction work on the new building is rapidly being cleaned up. There is some wiring to foe completed and the terrazzo has to be laid in the showers yet. There.is also a little plumbing and ventilating work "remaining to ibe taken care of. When the doors arrive for the inside and the rest of the inside work is cleaned up the work of floor laying will commence. It will take a week for the job to be completed even though the contractor works night and day. After the floor is in the seats can be set and the school will toe ready for the classes. The rough grading has been done about the grounds and the finishing touches are (being put on the outside of the. building. The board of edu: cation lis considering several "bids for the landscaping of the grounds.

Change In Government Of Village Proposed Many Advantages To Be Had- Under City Form. Petition to be Circulated in Islear Future to "Residents of the Village. Mayor Mark B. Sugden and Trustee Walter Cook attended the Michigan -Municipal League convention at Bay "City on September 17, 18 and 19 and .brought home with them the plans for providing Saline with a city government instead of the antiquated village government under which it now operates. The advantages of the 'city of government, they, state, would be a material saving to the tax-payer, a city representative on the county board ' of supervisors, and easiev facilities for voting with all '. of the residents' of the town voting at a central place instead of going out to the township polling places "as in now neessary. . " A number of Michigan villages of over 750 have availed themselves of. the opportunity of changing their form | of government and most of them have found it entirely successful, according to officials of the Michigan Municipal League. Farmington recently changed and'is highly pleased- with • the result. Imlay City changed several years ago and has had a much better government since. South Lyon has recently voted for-the city form.of government and a charter is in the process of being drawn up. Under the city charter' proposal, Saline would (be a separate township in itself, having a representative on the county board of . supervisors. Residents of the city would no longer .pay a township tax and. the city would assume all the duties of the township. Other cities report that this is done at a considerable saving. The city government would be similar to the present government as far as administrative and legislative officers are concerned, although the charter commission could institute whatever government it should choose to present to the .people foi ratification under the home rule law. Being under a home rule charter would give the city, broader powers, more economically handled, than under the present general village law. Various citizens of the village have expressed considerable enthusiasm for the proposed type of government and are heartily endorsing it. No action can be taken on the matter until a petition is circulated and presented to the village trustees. CARL'S PLACE East Michigan Avenue JUST THINK OF IT!

FAIRBANK INJURED INT ACCIDENT THURSDAY Mrs Lloyd Fairbank was injured in an automobile accident, Thursday when her Ford coupe was struck .by a Nash sedan driven by August Tracy of Detroit. She was taken to Ann Arbor and an x-ray examination showed that KmeJfsl the bones in her shoulder was injured. She is recovering and is not confined to her bed because of her injury. The accident happened near the. traffic signal about 5 p. m. Mrs. Fairbank was, making a left turn to .park her car when the' Nash struck the front right wheel. Both cars were carried across the street by tjie force of the collision. The Ford lost a front wheel and the axle was bent. The" Nash was not seriously damaged. A compilation has toeen made by Superintendent A. A. Kalder of the number of students in the various classes in the high school and the pupil load toeing-";Carried by each teacher. The results of this study reveal a number of interesting figures. Under the present schedule there are 34 classes toeing taught in the high school -which includes the seventh through the twelfth grades. ■Seven teachers handle all of these classes and the average number of pupil hours for each teacher is 109. Pupil, hours are computed, on the ba- sisjof the number Of pupils in a class one school hour long. Thus a class of 18 would make 18 pupil hours for an instructor. The teacher carrying the heaviest load of pupil hours is Hazen Jewell, commercial instructor, -with 133 (hours. Mrs. L. R. Herrington, principal of the high sehool and history and civics teacher, is second with 126 hours. The load for the others is Miss Gladys* Thitoaut, junior high, 121 hours, Miss Edwina Learmont, German and English 117, A. A. Kalder, mathematics, 101, Raymond Shaw, science, 84, and Miss Helen Stone. English and Latin, 81. 'The total it" 763 pupil hours. The largest class is history XL with 46 pupils while the smallest is shorthand with six. In the typing class there are 56 pupils in four sections with 14 in .each. Five classes each are taught by Miss Thibaut, Miss Learmont, Misr Stone and Mr. Jewell. The others teach four except Mr. Kalder, who has three. The large load carried by Mr. Jewell is .offset somewhat by the fact 56 of his pupil's are in typewriting classes which do not require preparation by the teacher. Miss St-cnr has five classes but the-, enrollment in each one is small, which accounts for the light load which she carries, states Mr. Kalder. The load which should be carried by teachers- is under 90 pupil hours he says. Also, administrative teachers should not toe -obliged to carry as many as 90 hours, he stated. The Saline school is not far from the average for the state, however. One-Year-OId And Dr. Hall Have Joint Birthday Party Daniel Sager Hall Had His First Birthday and Dr. Hall His 75th Friday.
