IHE VOLUME 51 SALINE, WASHTENAW COtraT*v, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1932 NUMBER 29 |>\* 3 \r > GOOD BANKING FOR YOU Good Banking Relations are Fundamentally Important to every kind of Business. You are invited to take advantage of the Banking Facilities this Bank offers. The Saline Savings Bank The One Story Bank on the Corner Hon. George J. Boike poke At Rotary Club Ann Arbor Attorney Gave Interest- ■ ing- Address tin ■■JPoIitacs and Patriotism." Local Rotarians. had the pleasure \ of hearing a speech, "Patriotism, and j Politics," by Hon. George W. Burke, i Ann Arbor attorney, at the regular i weekly meeting Thursday noon. Mr. r Burke'a talk went as follows: I STARTS LIKE A . . ; FLASH Dixie Gasoline has a high anti-knock rating ... it is clean, pure and odorless... it is specially tested for your climate—and it starts like a flash! If you like responsive action at any speed—if you want the assurance of an instant start whether your car has been standing for minutes or hours—use Dixie Gasoline. STAEBLER OIL COMPANY ; Leave orders with J. G. Tubaugh, phone 288, or with Maurice Henderson, phone 272 Patriotism is'defined as "Love oi \ one's Country." Politics "the science j and art of governxaent;" the' science i dealing with the oganization, jtegula- | tion and administration of a state fa i both its internal and external af- ! fairs." In times, such as'the pres- j ent, I am certain it is the wish of the ! vast majority of our people that in political matters,. patriotism rather than personal vanity or party preference should control the actions of our public servants. Most of. those in charge of "the affairs of government in this country, I believe, are honest people-of .good intentions. Unfortunately, however, there has grown up a system of partisan political out-look upon ques- rtions which are purely- economic" so that we • are deprived of the opportunity to have their best judgment and best efforts. ' -,'t j ■ With millions of unemployed" walking our streets and highways,-swith the farmers of the country desperately striving to make enough to pay taxes, with manufacturing plants closed for want of something to do, with merchants faced daily with bankruptcy, and'with the whole general situation showing no immediate ' prospect of betterment, the people of this country are apt to be rather impatient of any show of partisan political maneuvering, and will insist that no time be.wasted in an effort to push party ahead of country. Mr. Hoover has an extremely difficult job. He deserves the support of the entire country upon any plan, program or course of action that may help to relieve us from our present intolerable situation. It is unfortunate, of course, that so long a period of time has elapsed with apparently no particularly'definite or intelligent program for consideration. * It may, perhaps, not be particularly patriotic to' make the obesrvauon that from "the great minds in charge ! of the affairs of this country'' there : seems to be a rather noticeable lack Saline Marksmen Win From Adrian 876-874 Locals Will Match Shots Against Ann Arbor Club Here Tonight, May 5. The Saline Gun & Rifle club won a close victory over the Adrian shooters here Thursday night; with a score of 876 to 874. Walter Cook was again the leading scorer for th'e local boys, with a score of 91 points, standing, and 98 prone, with' a total of 189, or high league score of the season. - He did not enjoy -the championship for long, however, as a short time late his record was passed by Heintz of Adrian, who turned in 91 points from the standing position and 100 prone. Armbruster, Shurtz, Dicks, Cook and Hertler were the five scorers for the local club and Walker, T. Mun- ger, Mattern, B.

SPECIAL FAMILY RATES present situation. Rather, a gooa many of them* are wasting the time for which we pay them and creating more confusion in our already greatly confused affairs by discussing partisan issues,' claiming praise for their particular side and heaping criticism upon opponents. This observation-is made wholly without reference to one party or the other. The people of this country have become sick and tired of this partisan political strife. Every energy of the government should be directed toward remedying the present wholly unsatisfactory conditions and* those efforts should receive the support of our representatives regardless of party affiliations. We live, of course, ln a Democracy where tbe exercise of the right of freedom of thought and freedom of speech is a cherished right and privilege, but. scrambled • thought anu loose speech simply for the sake of i making sound affords no great ccn- ' solation to the -country when their-1 I united efforts should be * directed j j toward tbe important tusk of balanc- j I ing our National budget. Entirely I ? too much time is being wasted in an . effort to fix the responsibility for our • national hardships on the one hand •_ and too much time is also being ! wasted in an effort to explain wnx. the times are bard. Just now most ■• of us who are not in office, or run- ■ ning for office, are more concerned j1 with a remedy for the situation. j Later, if it becomes important, we ' ! can determine the questions of blame ; ' or credit. To be brutally frank abouir ■ " the matter we are very much more interested at this momnt in. real lead- ! er-h'p than we are in party advancement. We have seen our government ex- ditures, pur state expenses and even our local obligations increasing from year to year. It is very easy, especially in times of prosperity, to establish new boards, new commissions, new jobs, new bureaus and new assortments of' positions of every character. Thev all require money, and while it is simple to get them in- .to existence it is not so easy to. Dispense with them. At the present moment, when members of Congress ; are attempting to devise ways . and means of cutting expenses they are receiving no particular help or en- - couragement whatever from, the department heads in Washington. Each department insists that its department must not be cut, and-each apparently is insisting that the welfare of the entire country depends upon the continued operation' of that particular, department. Governmental expenses have in- J creased enormously. In fact, the in-. (OMicluded on page two) The most intimate crook story ever filmed is the treat in store for those who come to the school auditorium tonight(( May 5), wher-j Universal s out-standing all-talking photopiay "Outside the Law" will be shown. "'Tb"? story-revolves around the robbery of a metropolian bank by a crafty cracksman and the complications* resulting in his refusal to splii 50-50 with a gang leader. The action moves swiftly and builds up to one ot the most dramatic climaxes ever brought to the screen. "Universal has selected a superb cast to portray "the characters in the story. Mary Nolan, ever a splendid emotional actress, is said to give h-v most finished performance in "<Jui- side the Law" as the accomplice of the crook, Fingers, played by Ow**i* Moore. Edward G. Robinson, as ths gang leader, "Cobra" Collins, a dis: tinct underworld character, a Chinese- American, in this new film drama Although the plot deals principal!-/ -with the professional activities of crooks, the emotional'human s.ide of the cracksman, and his accomplice and- a jealous rival are well brought ■out in this absorbing drama. Crop Price Broadened By Harvester Company Big Grain Prices Now Guaranteed on MeCormick-Deering Tractor Operated Machines?. In response to popular demand the International Harvester Company has broadened its crop price guaranty offer, recently announced, to include besides tractors and combines every MeCormick-Deering maehir"* operated through a tractor hitch, power take-off, or tractor belt pulley. The importance of this action- will be more fully realized when it is understood -that tractors and power machines make up the major portion of the company's implement business*. The broadening of the plan to covsr all tractor-operated" machines makes it possible for a great many more farmers to take advantagH ol" it. Farmers already equipped with tractors and desiring to secure additional tractor-operated equipment for more economical crop production now have the opportunity of buying this needed equipment on the favorable terms of the crop price guaranty. The guaranteed prices, are 70 cents a bushel, Chicago, for No. 2 hard wheat; 50c for No. 2 yellow corn.

Local Girl Killed When Hit By Auto Saturday Driver Exhonerated by Coroner's Jury in Death of Louise Clarin© Alber.

VVoodbridge, who was called to the scene of the accident, stated that the girl was dead when he arrived. He reported that death came as a result of injuries tb the spine, chest and face. According to witnesses *tjie Harris car was moving at a moderate race of speed. Officer Melvin Alber stated that he had tested the brakes and found them in normal condition.
