Supreme Court; Coach Yost to Speak October 1. Prof. S. E. Fagerstrom, of the Normal College at Ypsilanti, was guest speaker at the meeting of the Rotary Club at The Tavern last Thursday noon, and. for half an hour held the close attention of the members as he spoke on the United States Supreme Court, how we come to have such a body, and reviewed our Constitution. He is convinced that, as the Constitution is not divine in its origin, was more or less hurriedly prepared and adopted, it stands to reason that succeeding generations would, if the need arose, amend it, wisely. All were sorry time was so limited he could not go into his subject more at length and -have invited him to speak at some future date. P. G. Niethammer was a guest at the dinner and address. It is expected that Coach Fielding H. Yost will be the guest speaker at the meeting on Thursday, October 1. S. R. Wilson, who has been soliciting funds for the Saline quota for the support of the Boy Scout program in the Washtenaw-Livingston district, reported having had splendid response and that in all probability the full amount would be raised this year, the first time since 1930. INTERESTING NOTES FROM OUR SCHOOL Superintendent Clay Reports Increase in Attendance; Material for New Departments Installed. The school enrollment has reached a total of 347 of which 156 are in the four upper grades. This is an increase of 14 in the high school over the 1935 number. Clara Schmid and Doris Schmid, who moved to Ionia during the summer, returned this week to attend school here. Classes are being organized this week through a system of nomination of candidates by petitions, after which elections will take place. A report of the officers will follow later. The annual reception for the ninth grade is to be held Friday evening this week, to which the high school students, faculty, parents and members of the Board-of Education are cordially invited. To help defray expenses a small door charge is to be made. New courses being offered this year include two for the girls, Home Economics for the ninth and likewise for the twelfth grades; one new course for boys, Animal Husbandry, is offered for eleventh and twelfth boys.

'Making House Homelike Without Cost" Is Subject to Be Studied This Year By County Home Economics Extension Groups.

Miss Gertrude Reis, home furnishing specialist from Michigan State College, will meet with the local leaders on September 16 for the first of five lessons. During the year, the groups will study Fundamentals of Good Taste in Home Furnishing. They will first discuss the best method of obtaining a feeling of restfulness and space in all rooms. A second lesson, Color in Home Decorations, will give a few simple rules for harmonious color combinations and will make every homemaker appreciate the magic which color can bring into any room. Braided, crocheted, .and hooked rugs will be shown and the method of making each type will be demonstrated. Used materials such as old dresses, suits, coats, hose, blankets, gunny sacks, and overalls will be utilized in the making of all rugs. Principles of furniture arrangement will be studied and the information applied in rearranging rooms for greater comfort, convenience and beauty. Walls, floors, and ceilings will be considered as backgrounds for the furnishings of a home. Color design and texture all play an important part in making the best choice for the finish or covering of these surfaces. The entire series of lessons is planned t to improve homes with a minimum of expense. Read the ads as carefully as you read the news articles. Moeller Organ Installed; Rev. Fenker and Rev. Brneckner to Preach in English and German, ST. JOHN'S LUTHERAN CHURCH St. John's Lutheran church at Bridgewater is to be congratulated upon the achievement-of purchasing a new organ.

The new organ cost $2,000 at the factory, and its purchase is a real achievement for a small society.

Fred Schmid. i who lived near Ann- Arbor, was the i first minister and was-succeeded by! Christian Volz in 1853. The. other, ministers since that time have been' Carl Christian Mutschel, J. John Biel-, hanz, J. F. Nathaniel Wolf, G. Doer-! fler, E. E. Herbst, Rev. Seeger, J. J.. Schmidt, E. Zwinger; C. Clessler, P.- H. Dielman, C. F. Laiirer, J. F. Voll-' mar, and M. C. Phillipp, who came In 1911. ' I During his twenty-five years of, service Rev. Phillipp has built up for j himself a large place in the commu-: nity. He, conducts* a confirmation class on Saturday mornings and been redecorated to match the: new organ. The formal dedication will take place Sunday afternoon at .-I o'clock. Rev. Hugo Fenker of Ypsilanti will preach in English and Rev. Brueck- ner of Chelsea will preach in German. Paul Berlin of Ida will be the organist. Mr. Berlin is a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Sellen of Saline. Following the speaking service there will be a short organ recital. All members, former members, and friends are invited to make this a reunion Sunday. The public is cordially invited to this service. "Even the most ordinary flowers and leaves are beautiful if they are chosen for their color and grace, arranged artistically in suitable vases and placed where they may be enjoyed." This is the deduction of Misa Gertrude Reis, extension specialist in home furnishing at Michigan State College. She offers pointers in flower selection and arrangement that will aid in enjoyment in the home and in obtaining placings at some of tlie many fall flower shows now scheduled in the state. In the container itself, one can find means of aiding the flowers to exhibit their beauty. According to Miss Reis, a suitable vase should be simple in shape, with little or no decoration in the form of painted or moulded flowers upon the surface. The plain and simple vase allows the flowers to show and does not attract too much attention to itself. Each house should contain three usable vases, a bud vase for one blossom, a low broad bowl for a medium sizec^ bouquet, and a piece eight to ten inches high that is large and heavy enough to hold a fairly large bouquet of long stemmed flowers. Perhaps the one used most of all is the wide mouth container of medium height with a wire block for holding stems at any angle desired. "Take a tip from the Japanese," Miss Reis suggests. "They do not combine flowers cut with even length stems, but arrange bouquets with three definite points of Interest. The highest point is placed directly "over the base, the second in point of height is placed to the right and a little forward of the center, and the third and lowest point is placed slightly back and to the left of the center. The highest point usually is one and one half times the height of the vase." THE OBSERVES LINERS Classified Advertising 6c per line first insertion. 4!c per line each subsequent insertion.

BLUEGILL, HAVE - A "CLUB SANDWICH" A new type of lure known as the "club sandwich" has been proving very effective against large blu&- gills in the inland lakes" in this vicinity. For the benefit of fishermen, Mark Craw, conservation officer, describes how 'it's made: "Fishermen who have been using it take any old snelled fly, the more ragged the better, and on this they string a cricket, a grasshopper'and--a-worm. This bait is a deep water- killer and obviously takes theilarger bluegills.. Do fish go for it!" * A black-gnat fly on which- a small white grub is fixed, weighed down witlL a lead shot, recently was found effective "in the lakes near Baldwin. COON HOUND FIELD TRIALS A Bactrian piece attributed to 235 B. C. is said to be the oldest coin extant. It was hammered from a crude copper-nickle alloy of Chinese '■ origin. " - i Coon hound field trials will be a new sport to be introduced in this locality September 27 at Cement City. Wilson Kerr, who is one of the coon hound specialists of this area, explains how the contests are to be run. The starting spot will be in a wooded place a half mile west of Cement City where the dogs will be matched and will be started on a trail made by dragging a scent bag along the ground on a circuit that will bring the dogs back to a treed coon not far from the starting place. The trial will cover about a mile and the first dog to cross a definite line near the tree will win as the line dog and the first to reach the tree and bark up will also be a winner. Several trials or heats will be ran , according, to the number of dogs. Entrance fees of $1 each will be divided between the final heat winners.—Brooklyn Exponent Two hundred fifty-eight votes were cast in Saline Tuesday, of which 24 were Democratic.
