■**£#?.-'-» ■■ ver VOLUME 63 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, NOV. 29. 1945 Number 8 Fanned By The Wind Best Bet Is Staying Well A fable is told of an ancient who practiced tne art of healing and who was approached by one wiui a great art'liction. Said the ancient,"I will heal you of your affliction upon one condition. It is that you. shall be nay slave henceforth," to which the petitioner, in the throes of great agony agreed and was his slave until death. A more modern version: One of the common creatures of this day who entered a great hospital for an operation. It was successful, but the man will spend his lifetime paying the bill which had already consumed all his meager savings of years and thus became a virtual slave to the modern healing specialist. Both the fable and the modern version are extremes, but due to the fact that medical and surgical care reach into the intimate lives of every man, women and child in the nation, it is not strange that the socialization of medicine has come to the fore in recent years. And it is to be reckoned with, as is illustrated by President Truman's message to Congress Nov. 19, advocatng national compulsory health insurance. This week Gene Alleman, secretary of The Michigan Press Association, in his Michigan Mirror, which will appear in a large percentage of the state's weekly newspapers, deals with the subject by presenting the viewpoint of the average Michigan physician and surgeon as presented by his state professional organiz- aton, which sponsored two volunteer non-profit corporations for prepaid health insurance. Incidentally , this program is frowned upon by the American Medical Association. Alleman thinks that the socialization of medicine is the doctor's dilemma and that the doctor's dilemma affects us all. It is, perhaps, well for Gene and the medical profession also, to bear in, mind that it was the peoples' dilemma first, emanating from the grass roots of an economic situation which burdens too great a proportion of suffering humanity. To get proper attention to their ills they are forced to go to law! That Heating Element A great game at Ann Arbor, Saturday, when Michigan took Ohio State and all it had to offer—which was plenty—beat them at their own game and sent them home rather crestfallen- This football business at the U. of M. is of much concern to Saline because it jams our thoroughfares with traffic overflows our eating places and the mob psychology affects us all and everyone gets the urge to follow the crowd. We're deterred only by the fact that the 85,000 seats were all sold out weeks ago. Sitting in those stadium seats on a raw November day may have its compensations. One conservative estimate is that it requires a quart of liquor for each ten persons to stave off the cold. That would mean 8,000 quarts, or 2,000 gallons, or 40 barrels of Old Crow, or what have you. A combination of hot coffee and liquor, Ohio State and Michigan in mortal combat, make stadium seats, it is said, comfortable in any weather. * * * * Mercantile Co. Are Rebuilding Mill Old Structure Giving Way For Modem Plant A crew of workmen is now taring down the old Mercantile elevator building, wlncli manager Arthur Heininger estimates to be at least a hundred years old. The middle section of the building has been removed and millwrights from Eaton Rapids will erect a new structure on the site with a capacity for handling 1,000 bushels of wheat per hour. A steam shovel will be employed to expedite the work of excavating the basement which will have a dumping pit holding 600 bushels of grain. The elevator will be able, when completed, to receive, clean and transfer to a car on the adjoining siding 1,000 bushels per hour. Quite a problem confronts the Mercantile Company in their undertaking, ln order to continue giving service to their customers, only a part of the structure can be built at one time. When the new secton is completed and the machinery installed they will proceed to build an adjoining section and thus complete the whole without discontinuing any of their services. The new addition to the store building is another great improvement to the Company's plant. The old lumber shed and warehouse has been dismantled and the site on which it stood will be disposed of. This, too, was a very old structure and is said to have been used as a roller skating rink at one time. for the various churches: 1. Have worship service and sermon on Home and Family Sunday centered on family life. (a) Invite couples the paster has married as special guests. (b) Encourage families to sit together in "Family Pews." 2. Provide a reading table of materials on family life. 3. Plan study courses on Homemaking and Preparation for Marriage. - 4. Seek out new or unchurched families and help them to feel at home in the church. 5. Study the possibilities., for family counselling service in the church community. 6. Hold an old fashioned church and family supuer. Feature group singing and games. 7. Cooperate with community agencies in their programs for better family life. 8.

Continued on Page 2 Inaugurating a long range program of education designed to combat the spread of juvenile delinquency, Governor Harry F. Kelly has announcer the completion of plans for a statewide observance, "Home and Family Week" from December 2 to 8. As a preliminary to the general observance, the program was initiated in the schools of the state during the week preceding Thanksgiving, The Michigan Youth Guidance Commission, as the coordinating agency, is sponsoring the observance which is to be conducted on a community basis. Approved at the July meeting of the commission, the overall educational program is being developed by a special committee comprised of representatives of various state departments and private organizations concerned with education for home and family living. To insure that every community in the state will be afforded the opportunity to participate in the observance, Governor Kelly has sent letters outlining the plans to 1,487 school superintendents, county school commissioners and members of county and community youth guidance committees. Recognizing the importance of the schools in conducting a successful campaign, the Governor said that initial leadership would be shared in each community by school officials, teachers and youth guidance committies and assumed by the educators where no youth committee exists. Outlined in a brochure published by the Commission, are suggestions for initiating programs for community organization and planning, which suggests the following program The marriage of Lt. Edna Ewing, Army Nurse Corp and Lt. O'Neal Taylor, U. S. A., took place Sunday, November 25 at 5 o'clock- in the Saline Methodist Church. Rev. R. S. Hocking performed the cere mony by candlelight before the alter which was decorated with white Chrysanthemums. . Lt. Ewing, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Ewing of Ann Arbor, was dressed in army uniform. The bride's only attendant was her sister, Mrs. HughKev- eling. Mr. Keveling served the groom as best man. Only members of the immediate families of both were present. The groom's aunt. Mrs. Anna Nichols of Ft. Worth, Texas, and two sisters, Mrs. Robert Pierce and Mrs. Kenneth Stratton of Marshall, Texas, attended the ceremony. A wedding supper was served at Bauer Manor, Evans Lake. After a short honeymoon the groom, who is on terminal leave from the Army, will return to Texas to resume his work as an engineer for an oil company there. Mrs. Taylor mil join her husband as soon as her discharge from the Army becomes effective. While it is generaly understood here that the William Bryan Lutz Post of the Amer- icn Legion is planning to build, a new home in the very near future on property adjoining and overlooking the east side of Ford Lake, but it isn't quite so well known that the American Liggi-PP Auxiliary has~taken on the project of providing funds to furnish that home. They have been working diligently for sometime earning money, but this fall they undertook to serve dinners to people traveling through town to attend the football games at the Ann Arbor Stadium, and thus accomodated visitors to the Michigan- Minnesoto and the Michigan- Ohio games and on these two dates alone cleared between $450 and $500, a sizeable sum. The committee in charge of the dinners is grateful for the splendid co-operation in work and contributions on the part of members and others, and is especially grateful to Mrs. Edgar Forsythe for her generous gift of an electric stove to the equipment of the kitchen of the new home. At the dinner last Saturday for the Michigan-Ohio game, more than four hundred people were served. Herman Heininger, local implement dealer is remodeling me interior of his place of business on West iviicmgan Ave. A partition across the rear on the main floor has been moved back providing a space 56 feet in length and another partition on the west side, which provided an entrance for vehicles, has been eliminated, and in its place is a series of booths with thousands of shelves and compartments for the storage of parts which are necessary for the servicing of the different lines of farm equipment which is handled. The ceiling has been refinish- ed in celotex squares while the sidewallsare to be covered with celotex beveled panels. The office is located to the rear, near the end of a long counter which extends nearly the length of the room. The old office fixtures will be removed and the floor space thus provided will be used for display purposes. By closing another entrance on the east side of the building and replacing it with large windows, additional floor space has been gained. The booths, counters, shelving; the office and receiving rooms have all been made of plywood. Compartments in the counter and in the shelving in the parts section, are all adjustable, and a unique though .simple combination filing-inventory system makes for the speedy location of'any "due of a thousand machinery parts. The interior finish will be in ivory, and when completed will present a very attractive appearance. Born in Freedom township, June 17, 1872, the Rev.

Planting of Legal Size Trout Christmas Oratorio At Ann Arbor Handel's Messiah At Hill Auditorium A 100ft length of paving in the alley on the west side of the Saline Hotel, is a splendid piece of workmanship and a distinct improvement to the hotel property. The proprietor, Henry Leutheuser takes a considerable pride in the upkeep of his establishment which is shared by the community generally. A record 870,428 adult or legal-size brook, brown, and rainbow trout have been planted by the conservation department this year in Michigan's streams and inland lakes. £ This 42 per cent increase in numbers of adult and legal-size fish planted over the 1944 total of 611,472 of the three species has been accomplished despite severe food, manpower, and e- quipment shortages. Food shortages, in fact, held down the total of adult and legal-size fish planted. Growth rate of fish was slowed by forced use of substitute ingredients in the carefully worked out diets of trout held in hatcheries and the department has a heavier- than- usual carry-over of trout that' failed to attain legal size in the normal growth period. It was the third year in Five persons were injured in Washtenaw county accidents during the past week-end, among whom was Casper Gram- matico, 28, of 1605 Maple Rd. who was slighty injured in a collision when his car was-hit by a car driven by William Turner, 2784 Newport Road.
