THE VOLUME 56 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1937 NUMBER 49 A GOOD BANK IS A REAL HELP 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 man or woman.

AND SERVICE IFIRST TEACHER PAID 75 CENTS A WEEK The Gleason school stands toda$|and often the same one who taught ! with modern improvements, a play :' ground, lighting arranged over the [left shoulder and similar'-changes ! which represent ideas of the times. Mrs. Alonzo Kuder, now in her 84th year," went to school the fall she was five years old. That year the building was scarcely done in time for school to open, many finishing touches being applied after the teacher had arrived and lessons diligently studied. 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 forming 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 com. Colefs Feed Store in the fall returned for the spring' term. Some of the pupils that first year were Julia Bradley Gilmore; her sister, Amy Bradley. Sarah Harriett (Avery), mother of Mrs. John Crittenden; Lauren Cole. - Others who attended were Rhue Corbett, Esther Cochran, Virginia Harring and Sarah Avery. (N. B.—There was a Sarah Harriett who married an Avery and also sl Sarah Avery.) Nathan Hunt built the structure in 1853. Ezra Gleason put in the seats, which were made of black walnut from logs in his woods. Double desks were used. A Mr. Cole did the mason work. With Nathan Hunt to do the carpenter work, Ezra Gleason the seating and M_5> Cole the masonry, the school building went forward. As opening time drew closer all worked harder and longer, that the. job might be completed on time. John Cole gave the ground for siir long as it> should be used for a school. At first the teacher was paid 75 cents a week and was "boarded round"—that is. given board and lodging here and there. Sometimes teachers fared well and sometimes not so well. School was held six days a week and -when the teacher asked for Saturday off there was a great argument about the matter. Some felt she -would not earn her money if she had a day off, some thought it rather indolent of her and she was getting lazy, some thought the pay sufficient for that much service and they should demand the full week's work. But a compromise was reached and the teacher granted one Saturday a month for a holiday. Later it -was extended to one Saturday every two weeks. Gradually the idea grew and eventually the five-day week was decided upon. There were from 40 to 60 pupils all the time. Three teachers a year was the rule, one being engaged for the fall term, another for the winter Among the early teachers were Ollie Easlick (Corbett), sister of Mrs. Ida Cammet; Louise Tower, Sarah Tower (Stimpson), mother of Elmer Stimpson; Sara Laddy Harriett, Jerome Travis, Mary Easterle (Turner) ; Will Owen, who died of effects of army life. Other teachers were Persus Rhymert, Helen Travis, Lizzie Gleason, Stella Forbes, Sadie Jackson and her sister, MJnty, Emma Cotton Hammond (Mrs. B. D.), Mat- tie Kleversatt, now Mrs. Hugh Craig. Edna Kleversaat (Mrs. Sam. Craig-),- Grace Gordon Stimpson (Mrs. Elmer Stimpson), Grace McMann (Hammond. Mrs. Ralph), and Pearl Waite (Kuder). The regular order in which these teachers taught the school is not known. Other teachers were Jim Collins, father of Mrs. Elfa Monroe and Mrs. Elsie Heininger, and Ida Walker. The building was remodeled a year ago with the aid of WPA fluids, Electricity was installed, walls celo- texed, new floors laid, and lighting effects modernized. The teacher last year was Miss Geraldine Hanson, who has taught the past three years and has won the praise and admiration of pupils f_s4rtheir parents alike. Two boys completed the eighth grade this year, Ralph* Mehler and Frederick Hartwig. Both plan to continue their education but had not definitely decided when this was written upon the school or vocation they will follow. -J. ,■..-. - ... —spje^d up corn cutti ng WHIT- 1$£W-'___t__»i.__m OBSERVER .': " to a friend.

RAILROAD EMPLOYES' WAGES Hillsdale County Fair September 26-October 2 New Grandstand Erected That Will Accommodate 1,400 People, Paid for From Earnings. Hillsdale fair-goers this year will be delighted with the new grandstand, which is -undergoing final touches this week. Tlie new stand, seating 1,400 people, will double the capacity at the race track in front of the free acts stand. Also there will be space in front for temporary bleachers to accommodate any overflow. Secretary Harry B. Kelley states that the cost of the new grandstand will total between eight and nine thousand dollars, all paid for from receipts of the fair. The new stands will be used for the first time at this year's fair, September 26 to October 2. Facing the track at the most desirable angle from the standpoint of affording the best view, the new grandstand bas reserved seat space for 192 persons in specially decked boxes at the front The old stand has also been remodeled so that the front conforms to the new one, and has box seat capacity for 352. The boxes will be equipped with new steel chairs. A feature of the new stand is the sanitary restrooms underneath at the north side. Modern plumbing has been installed for the four restrooms —two for men and two for women. Two of the rooms will be available from the outside of the grandstand, and two from the inside. A modern ■(rentilating system has been installed in these rooms. Painted all white, with the exception of the seats which are to be gray, the new stand adds considerably to the looks of the fairgrounds as well as affording decided advantages to those who will attend. The entrance to' both stands is between them where the ground space has been concreted and iron lanes have been set up to afford the most rapid inflow of spectators. The ticket booths and concessions will be located under the new grandstand at the south end, next to the entrance gates. Exits are located at the north end of the new stand and the south end of the old stand. Each has an exit to the track, and spectators can leave, of course, by way of the entrance. The new stand has a self-supporting roof, which eliminates the use of a great number of poles from the front, thereby affording the spectators a practically unobstructed view. From the standpoint of sturdy construction, it is pointed out by Mr. Kelley that sound oak supports underneath the 9x14 inch risers extend to concrete,footings. 38,000 feet of the sawed oak was used and 35,000 feet of pine lumber in the construction of the new stand. Supports were also reinforced in the old stand where needed. The roofing over the new grandstand will be steel over paper, making for insulation from the heat as well as protection from fireworks.
