. 4 VOLUME 6T Thc^Saline Observer fffj|lALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MC#fAN, THURSDAY, April 18, 1946 ==== .fofcfr?-. 1£ ; NUMBER 28 Ypsi Commerce Secretary Here Carl Ungrodt Outlines Advantages of Chambers Of Commerce itftnes Another Easter Ds#n Carl Ungrodt, secretary of the Ypsilanti Chamber of Commerce was a dinner guest and speaker at Rotary here last week by invitation of Ed Warner, program chairman, and outlined the activities of a Chamber of Commerce and its usefulness in a community. Its underlying purpose is to promote the commercial, industrial and civic activities of its community, and should be thoroughly representative of every segment of the population within its area, he declared, and suggested that where conditions do not warrant the employment of a full time Chamber secretary, a part time secretary works out very well and can usually be selected from among local businessmen who have established offices and who should be reimbursed for his services. Mr. Ungrodt pointed out that a live Chamber of Commerce acts as a spur to civic minded- ness and where such an organization meets and deals ' with matters of common interest, it tends to break down prejudice and intolerance, and those questions of a controversial nature, which occur, more or less in every community,-are usually ironed out very agreeably. • While -organizations of this character in Michigan towns and cities are numerous, Ungrodt declared that Canadian communities are organizing commercial clubs on a wide scale and much more rapidly than in this country. When George Pingston, Ann Arbor building contractor, and Art Sehaaf ..announced that they were making plans to erect several dwellings in Saline for Veterans, having, made their choice between- this crEy aiid Ann Arbor, they were assurred at least the moral support of those present, and Ungrodt declared he wished they had selected Ypsilanti, where the housing shortage was critical. Accompanying the speaker, and a dinner guest, was Spencer A. Davis, of Ypsilanti. Following "a" meeting.of the board of directors, elected at •the me^tijig of April 4th, Rotary of£isP$s. who will take office July$|#ere announced as follows: MsiSent, Dr: Harold ~A.
