THE VOLUME 56 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1937 NUMBER 48 A GOOD BANK IS A REAL HEP TO ANY MAN OR WOMAN You can do without an automobile or a radio. You don't have to have a bathtub or electric light in your home. But such modern conveniences make life worth living. , This is true of a bank, too. You can get along without a bank. But you can get along much better with it. A bank is a modern convenience which can be a real help to any manor woman. local Smith - Hughes j Agricultural Projects Twenty-one in the Community Going Strong; Exhibits and Judging Team at County Fair. The Saline Savings Bank The One Story Bank On the Corner What About Fertilizer We have been very careful in selecting our brands of Fertilizers and feel we have what it takes to produce bumper crops, when other conditions are considered. Use Welch "Independent Plant Foods" with ground tobacco stems Or Swift's "Red Steer" non-acid f arming Fertilizers And I think you will agree there are none better. Delouse your poultry nature's way—in the dust box. More simple—most effective. If you "wish to get those hogs to market in a hurry, use Hominy, made from pure white corn. Cole's Feed Store PHONE 47 SALINE With our county fair in full swing at Ann Arbor this week, it may be of interest to our readers to know that a number of the Smith-Hughes agriculture students from our high school have exhibits on display there. And a stock-judging team composed of Eldean Hanson, Roland Goltz, Walter Wild, Clifton Bird, Jack Langstaff, George Richards, William Harwood and Robert Lambarth, has entered and will compete in that event. There are now twenty-one" fine projects under way in our community, and this for a SmithJIughes department still in its second year is an unusual showing. Many schools show no more and no better project developement after five or even ten years of activity. There is a rather wide variety in the endeavors the boys are making, which is a very good sign: And in almost every instance there is the lively prospect of 'good financial returns. But whether remunerative or not the'projects are sure to prove instructive and that is a matter of first importance, as also is the fact that the boys' interest in agriculture is being quickened and strengthened, and that in a neighborhood of -this sort is very vital. For after all is said no -other industry furnishes a more stable and lasting foundation upon which to build a thriving community. Agriculture contains most .of the elements of growth and few of the hidden germs of decay. It is manifestly impossible to discuss in detail each of the twenty- one projects. Let it suffice if we select at random the splendid barred rock pullets belonging to Roland Goltz. They are from the cream of the Saline Valley Farms hatch, and their eggs by present contract, will be sold back in the spring to the Valley incubators for hatching purposes. Local Home Ec's Finish Projects Girls Work Under the Smith-Hughes System and Accomplish Much for Themselves and their Mothers. With the starting of school almost here, the ninth grade home economics girls are completing their projects. Many questions have been asked as to just -what the summer's work concerns. The girls are fortunate to have the opportunity to work under the Smith-Hughes system, which provides for one month's supervision by the home economics teacher during the summer vacation. Part of this is done two weeks after school lets" out and two weeks preceding the school year. The teacher helps the girls to plan and carry out her project. Credit is received for satisfactory results. Although the school furnishes equipment as nearly like that in the home as possible, it has limitations. Arrangements may be made at school for each girl to plan and serve a breakfast to four other girls, but such home conditions as father's unwillingness to eat certain foods or brother's failure to come to the meal at the usual time, cannot be provided for each individual girl. It is evident that the school cannot provide the human element of family life; and what school can provide telephone calls, salesman, a child's cut finger, or the other numerous interruptions which complicate the management of a busy homemaker's day? With the foundation of home economics, training in the school and the mother's training in the home, the girl is ready to plan her project, execute it, and finally evaluate it. These girls, for the most part, do their own work. Through experiences— successes and failures—they learn to become good homemakers. At the same time, these projects oftentimes relieve the mother of some of her numerous responsibilities. During the summer, the girls have time to work on their chosen projects, and the teacher can concentrate on their individual wants and needs Examples of such propects might Glen Weber has a big patch of. sorghum cane towering lush and tall i De: above one's head and holding thei Laundering and caring for my promise of gallons of rich sweetness 0V^P_ c'?"les in the autumn. Armen Hauessler has a patch of potatoes from certified seed, so good that the state inspector pronounces it one of the best in the state. Walter Wild, Eldean Hanson, Charles Hartman and many, others have splendid projects well in hand. We would like to mention them all but space forbids. It is sufficient to say that from such beginnings as these when projected forward into life, that many of the real lifetime successes are developed. And we most heartily wish the boys—every one of them—splendid success in their several endeavors. LESS THAN, SMMO«»J» 3 Cents a Week FOR HOME NEWS TEE BJEST NEWS ON EARTH!

SALINE There wasn't much in the way of a set program at the meeting of the Rotary Club at The Tavern last Thursday noon, but for all that all members were glad to be on hand. We forget the reason, but Cook and Clay had to sing a duet, and those who happened to be given a card with one of the letters of "Rotary" oh it, had to sing a number, G. C. Townsend conducting. C. A. Jewell reported on the progress of the garden and flowei; projects. Considering the late start and subsequent unfavorable weather, all are getting along nicely. ' Only four of the starters have "fallen by the wayside." The subject of-a fall fair and gala day was discussed at length and the committee is working toward something worth-while, a report of which will be given later. President Wilson attended a part of the sessions of the district convention at Dearborn Thursday and Friday and will give his report today. Planning and making garments. Planning, preparing and serving specific meals. Redecorating my bedroom. Canning. Rearranging the kitchen to make it more efficient, Housecleaning one or more rooms. Building up my health. These are only a few of the home situations from which the girl may pick her work. Each project includes: "Something oid, something new, Something to manage, And something to do." Saline High school girls taking summer projects are: Luella Alber, Margie Boettger, Betty Cathers, Jeannette Clay, Katherine Cotton, Mildred Day, Juanita Feeman, Ellen Feldkamp, Arline Gall, Ruth Hartman, Wilma Kuebler.

Cole, phone . 113-F13. 50 A slight change for the opening of school -has been authorized in Saline. Instead of the date as given out last week the plan now is to have the students report on Wednesday morning, while the teachers' meeting will be held at 1 p. m. on Tuesday. This has been done to conform with the suggestion made by Supt. Elliott of Lansing so that the heavy traffic over the Labor Day holiday will interfere as little as possible. The teaching force for the new year will see but two new people, Miss Virginia Horton of Lansing taking: the place of Mrs. Miriam Moore, resigned, and Miss Irene Huehl of Chelsea, who will teach the first grade. This is a decided difference and advantage over last year, when a total of eight new instructors joined the faculty. The group for the year is as follows: Miss Jean Fuller will have the grade music and the kindergarten; Miss Irene Huehl, the first grade; Miss Dorothy Haselswerdt. the second grade; Miss Mary Morden, third and fourth grades; Miss Katherine Briggs and Mrs. Dorothy Hutzel will have the fifth and sixth on the departmental plan. Miss Virginia Horton will have the seventh grade English, history and geography plus the public speaking; Miss LaDorna Feller, English and Latin with H. S. vocal music; Mrs. Elizabeth Kuebler, the high school principalship with literature and English; Mrs. Elizabeth Washburn, the home economics; Hazen Jewell, the commercial; Donald Francisco, the science and shop; Donald Rock, the history and coaching; Charles Jewell, the agriculture; and Thurman M. Clay, the superin- tendency. Delegates Report At Meeting Of Auxilary Held at Home of MSrs. Raymond Pierce; Officers Elected for the Ensuing Year. SQUIRREL LAWS NOT ALTERED THIS YEAR DEER TAGS MUST BE "LEGIBLE" THIS FALL LANSING—The law has caught up with the deer hunters who-smeared their license tags with mud or wore them upside down last fall. A provision in the game bill last year stated only that license tags be worn so as to be plainly "visible" has been corrected by the legislature. Deer hunters will be required by law this fall to wear their tags so as to be plainly "legible" as well as visible. ALFRED KUEBHER Alfred Kuebler, 37, of Freedom township, died Monday night. -He was born in Freedom township February 20, 1900, and was the son of William and Katherine Blumenauer Kuebler. He was a member of Bethel's church. He is survived by his wife, Ida Casterline Kuebler; his mother; three brothers, Paul, Saline township, Calvin and Raymond of Freedom township; and several nephews and nieces. The yolk of an egg contains e> high fat content in the form of oil, and also lecithin, an important substance useful in aiding growth and for nourishing nerves. LANSING—The state conservation commission took no action at its August meeting with regard to altering existing fox squirrel regulations. As a. result there will be squirrel hunting season in Michigan this fall as in the past yaar, but none in 1938 The legislature early this summer amended the hunting laws so as to eliminate hunting of fox squirrels, the only game squirrel on which there has been an open season. The law which will " accomplish this, however, does not go into effect until October 29. Until that date present laws and regulations with regard to the fox .squirrel remain in force and effect The present regulations permit an open season on fox squirrels from October 1 to October 10 in the upper peninsula and from October 15 to October 24 in the lower peninsula, all dates inclusive. The squirrel hunter comes in "just under the wire" for his favorite sport this fall, but he will get no legal squirrel shooting during the autumn of 1938 unless the legislature so provides before that time.

OF DUNDEE Saline General Hospital An oil well which promises to be the best producer of aQ in this vicinity was brought in last week on the Frank Roe farm, five miles west of Dundee. The well is part of the field being developed locally by Albert Violette of the A. V. Oil and Gas Company of Dundee. The drillers hit the Trenton rock at a depth of 2,067 feet and the oil came in at 2,090 feet. They have now drilled through 30 feet of pay sand and a gas pocket forced" the oil to the top of the hole. A pump ..was installed and efforts are being made to keep the oil below the level of the casing which is down 1,400 feet As soon as possible the well will be shot but Mr. Violette is unable to give a precise date owing to there being so much oil in the casing. Indications are for a much heavier flow than well No. 1, which averaged 50 barrels per day. Mr. Violette is also financing the drilling operations on the'old Bullock farm, a short distance off the North Custer road, about three miles east of Dundee.—Dundee Reporter.

This may be a fish story and it may be.a whopper, but it is about little fish.

After the" storm Efep- pe's flock of chickens started in to gobble the small fish up, but several of the fish were saved and are being kept in a tank of water on the farm, where they are to be seen by anyone who doubts the veracity of this story.—Belding Banner.
