Parsons & Dodge. A vocal solo by John Finch, instructor of music in the Grosse Pointe schools, and a talk on "Crippled, or Handicapped Children," by Dr. C. O. Woodbridge made life very interesting to the Saline Rotarians at their meeting last Thursday noon. "In November, 1930,'' according5"_o statistics given by Dr. Woodbridge, "there were 45,000,000 children in tha United States, and among this number were handicapped; 305,000 of this number were deaf or had defective hearing; 70,000 totally or partially blind; and 300,000 crippled. The chief cause of nearly all deformity is malnutrition, and if the opportunity ever comes to this community to be of assistance in the feeding of the hungry, don't hesitate —give, and give freely. "If you will tell me," the speaker continued, "how a community, society, age, or people treats its weak, I will tell you how far that community has advanced along the road to civilization. Describe to me how the men of a community treat their wives arsd how" parents treat their children," and I will draw definite conclusions tna.t are proof of the refinement and culture of that community." In order that a community may assist the handicapped child, Dr. Wood- bridge has the following suggestions to offer: A. Believing that the crippled child, through no fault of his own, is handicapped in whatever effort he makes to fit himself for life, the state without placing the child in the category "Dependent," should provide him with facilities for as much education as it does for the normal child, plus whatever additional advantages are needed to place him upon an equal plane in competition for existence with his normal brother. He should not be penalized for something over which lie has no coiy trol. "* B. Every crippled child who find/, it impossible to walk to and from, school, especially during the winter, should be entitled to such, transportation at the expense of the state or. community as may be necessary to offer him all of the educational facilities that are open to the normal child. He should not be compelled to repeat a grade because of irregularities in attendance due to his own misfortune. C. Every crippled child, especially one whose handicap is such as to necessitate the acquiring of a certain profession or trade, should be enr titled to such instruction and training as will enable him to rise above ordinary competiton when endeavoring to secure employment or when tryi::g to make a place for himself in life. He should not be made an object of charity because :>f physical conditions over which he has no control. D. Every crippled child who cannot sit at an ordinary desk or an ordinary seat at school should be entitled to such, special provision as will place him, as nearly as possible, on an equal basis with the normal child. He should not be placed at a disadvantage in his struggle or knowledge because of maladjustment to a seat or desk. E. Every crippled child is entitled to the supervision and guidance of a teacher who is not only technically trained in the educational curricula of such children, but who is tempera-* mentally and psychologically adapted to that type of work. It should not be expected that a crippled child will respond as quickly to a given task, and, above all, he should not be reprimanded when, because of his handicap, he must move more slowly than the normal child. After Dr. Woodbridge's talk the Rotarians voted to have an extra-fine picture chosen for tne show on dollar day. Visitors were Leigh Townsend o Ypsilanti and John Finch of Gross' Pointe. E. F. Henne Won Close Game to Decide First Flight Laurels. Golf Prizes Now Ready For Those Who Won Them May Be Obtained at Gross' Harware Store When Desired by Lucky Golf Contestants.

Two Barns on Springer Farm Burned Thursday Firemen Believe That Conflagration Was Started by Tramps or Chicken Thieves. FIRE PREVENTION WEEK President Hoover has proclaimed the week of October 4 as fire prevent tion week. He said fires in 1930 caused a property loss of nearly 55*00,000,000, an increase of $4,000,- 000 over 1929, and injuries to men, women and children exceeded 35,000 in 1930. Fire of undetermined origin destroyed the buildings on the William B. Bauer farm, six miles southwest of Chelsea, about 8:30 Saturday evening. The dwelling house, two. large barns filled with hay, a small barn, hog house and tool shed were burned; also 200 chickens. Most of the household goods were saved. The loss is covered by insurance.—Chelsea Standard. Two large barns on the farm of A. E. Springer, one mile south Of the city, were totally destroyed by fire last Thursday night. The loss is estimated at about $12,000 and was covered by $3,500 insurance. The barns were 32x26 and 30x90. The larger one contained a hay rack, binder, cultivator and other implements, as well as hay and grain, all of which were lost. 200 chickens were housed in the large basement. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schaible noticed the fire near the ground .at one corner of the barn and sent in the alarm. Immediately after being discovered, both structures burst into flames. The fire department, as well as a large crowd of volunteers, arrived just before "Mr. and Mrs. Springer returned from the county fair, and by hard work saved the tool shed and home. Origin of the fire has not been determined. It is believed it was started either by tramps or chicken thieves. Traffic to the scene was congested on acount of the South Ann Arbor street road being closed- The harrier was raised for the fire truck ana personnel, but the majority of traffic was detoured. The county road office sent a heavy roller to remove the ruts from the tar and it is believed the road was not badly hrjurea by the cars. Competition Was Unusually Close in Both Matches; Each Won by Single Hole. * Wanning the 18th hole after an uphill battle through 18 holes of golf, at the Stadium Hills course last Thursday afternoon, made Lloyd E. Fairbanks the winner of the match with Robert Fuoss, and Saline city golf champion. With Fuoss leading at 'the 11th hole by three points Fairbanks, with a spurt of fine golf, took four consecutive holes that placed him one to the good coming up to the 15th hole, which was won by Fuoss, and the match was squared with three to play. Both players put up a terrific battle from here on, halving the 16th and 17th. On the 18th both men were on the green in even scores, and the winner was forced to sink a lor^r putt to end the match m his favor. The final match in the first flight was played between E. F. Henne and Dr. L. E. Fast 4 Here again was a fight from beginning to end and the match -was forced to an extra hole before it was decided. Both men showed a superb brand of golf and the match broke even at the end of the 9th and 18th. A long drive and a nice brassie placed the manager of the local telephone company on the green in two, while difficulty in the rough cost Dr. Fast four strokes before he landed upon the smooth turf. Henne wisely played a safe putting game to win the hole by one stroke and the first flight championship by one hole. NOTICE TO WATER USERS Water bills were due July 1.
