S&te Saline Observer VOLUME 63 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, MAY 23, 1946 NUMBER 33 S*x r ! Ifo. 1 .XX-■* The First Post-War Memorial Day Observance Delinquents and Dictators MEMORIAL TO BE TO BE DEDICATED Have Same General Traits Of Character Declares Dr. Yoder Dr. 0. R. Yoder, superintendent of the Ypsilanti State Hospital, guest speaker at Saline Rotary Club, Thursday, gave a very illuminating talk on some of the sociological problems of that institution and others of its nature and of the underlying causes of human delinquency. Too much denend- ence upon the material things of life and a lack of Faith are the roots of many evils that beset mankind, he declared and emphasized the fact that the attributes of the dictators and oppressors are the same as those of delinquent children: aggressive, no sense of guilt and self love. Dr. Yoder was introduced bv Paul Lambert, program chairman, and other guests were Arthur Stevens- Milan, and Sgt. Broadway of Ann Arbor. SALINE TO RECEIVE §2,416.51 FOR FIRST QUARTER WEIGHT TAX Washtenaw .county road commission at its weekly meeting Friday vouchered to the cities and villages their share of the first quarter weight (license plate) tax. The state highway commissioner had previously vouchered to the county treasurer a cheek for $318,263.14. Fifty per cent of the above sum is earmarked for county road purposes, seven-eights in proportion to the amount collected in the county for license plates and one eighty-third of the remaining one-eighth to each county. This latter division of the fund has been the salvation of the many small population counties. All of this fund must be used for highway purposes under the jurisdiction of the county road commission subject to the approval of the board of ■ supervisors. The second fifty per-cent is apportioned between cities and villages and the county on a population basis. The last regular Federal census of 1940 gave cities and villages of Washtenaw County 49,263 persons for 60.96 per cent and the rural population 31,547 persons or 39.04 per cent. Of the total city and village population Ann Arbor receives $58,712.27, Ypsilanti, $23,869.- 26; Chelsea, $4,422.68; Dexter, $2,140.03; Manchester, $2,166.- 23; Milan, $3,282.81; Saline, $2,416.51.

This being a capitalistic country, with certain class- thinking, it has not proven successful under these conditions. We wonder why some-.of the other nations come to us when in need of money. Is there any country outside the U. S. A., where the laborer drives to and from work in a larger car? Still labor and foremen's unions strike for Mgher pay and better conditions. Some people seem to tMnk that strikes are a good tMng for the country as a whole, and if that is the case, then the rest of us are dumber than lost sheep by not striking also. For instance, the emplover could strike for cheaper labor, the merchant for more profit, the consumer for cheaper'food and merchandise; the young folks from 16 to 21, for freedom from work and the use of a cat* with plenty of gas and money. Those over 50 could be on^ a liberal old age pension so they could live in luxury the rest of their days. The married GI's strike for a new home free of charge, wMch would not be asking too much. Then last but not least, the farmer might strike for better prices on Ms produce so that he would rea- Uze at least 75 £ per hour for an 8-hour day, and time and a half for overtime. Also a half-hour off for smoking and coffee. _ Create a fund of several billion doUars from some source to give the farmer's family a two- weeks vacation with pav and fishing tackle, boats and bait provided. Then too. the guys with no money, could just sit down and let the fellow who has. pay the Mis. C. D. F. Continued on Page 8 '
