A- The Saline Observer [VOLUME 64 SALINE. WASHTENAW COUNTY. MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, OCT. 10, 1946 NUMBER 1 Refused the s CommunityFair Huge Success »- Local Cooperative Event Aroused Intense Interest Throughout Countryside Benevolent Nature smiled and set the stage for a weekend performance here unmatched m Indian Summer loveliness and autumn splendor. The Dame saw' virture in Saline's three- day Community Fair and was evidently carried away by the enthusiasm of the moment. Anway, she outdid herself and provided the one great element which contributed so much to make the 1946 edition of Saline's fall festival such a hugh success. Unmarred by either' accident or vexation of any kind, the Fair, now history, was about . as successful an event as' cpuld be imagined. Unprecedented crowds attended every event and seemingly let their hair down to enjoy it to the full. Good nature was rampant and laughter and neighborly good fellowship were the dominant notes. The mid-way a new inovation at the Community Fair, was an experiment that proved highly successful. The exhibits in all departments equalled those of any previous years and in many respects excelled. The Saline Woman's Club put on a flower show of "superlative beauty and in the crops department even the ap^ pie display remained intact from pilfering kids, although deliciously tempting. It is ; doubtful if any neighboring county fair this fall matched the corn display. There were over 30 entries. " The horse pulling event was of unusual interest, with two Milford entries by professionals, one of whom carried off the main purse, but the crowd gave the palm to the local Robison team which was obviously the pluckiest of them all. Speculation is rife concerning the fate of two watermelons, prize winners, upon which Supt. Jensen focused a calculating eye. It may have been only calculation; however, the fireworks Thursday, which followed the WJR program, provided a thrilling climax to an eventful day. The pig scramble and tractor- backing events were followed Friday afternoon by the Saline- Milan football game which resulted in a local defeat, 14-0 It was conceded, however, by the crowd which witnessed the event, that Saline High put up a game fight against their husky oppenents ^ind were congratulated on their good showing. Saturday was a day dedicated as a home-coming for Veterans and the afternoon parade—a mile long—bade them a welcome. It was colorful and exciting and featured the Ypsilanti High School girls' drum and bugle corps. They made a striking appearance in their kilts and high headdress as they came high-stepping along With the majorettes and their whirling batons in the lead. Veterans with the colors, the large troupe of horsemen, the High School band, the floats, the pet stock, the many marchers and special features along with the showing of farm machinery made it .an event of exciting interest to the throngs which lined the course of the parade. The rodeo at the ball grounds near the City Park drew hundreds of interested spectators and the dance in the school auditorium and the mid-way Saturday night kept a tremendously large crowd occupied -until long after mid- •night. William Austin, David Gor- "Hear Wilham R. Kelley, veteran candidate for Congress, speaking over WPAG (1050 on your dial) at 1:15 P.M. on Sunday, Oct.^13." Political Adv. don and Dwight Carr were responsible largely for the fine livestock show, - and Stanley Gall for the horse pulling event. Michael Sheehan, Gerhardt Cekau and Harold Vaughn contributed largely to the success of the Fair by putting on the rodeo. Art Hagen and Don Wiedmayer as solicitors did a bang-up job, while the community merchants and several manufacturers lent their unstinted efforts toward building up the fine displays in the merchants' tents. The F.F.A., who have a large part in the conduct of the Fair, were led in their activities by the indefatiguable Charles Osgood, secretary of the Fair Association. Charley is the moving spirit behind this annual event and the recipient of many compliments. Many others, too, gave un- stintingly of their time, among To be able to qualify as a voter in the November election you must be registered in your voting precinct.

Sahne fans are asking "what's wrong with the Hornets?" As spectators who shell out good money to see football games, local sportsfans have a right to ask questions . . . especially when the boys are not winning. So far the Hornets have met Clinton, Flat Rock, and Milan. In the Clinton game they displayed plenty of defensive ability but only embryonic Offensive spark. Even though Coach Everett's boys did not win that one,- neither did they lose it. This fact made them in our books, at least, a better team than last season's eleven. At Flat Rock, where they lost 18-0, they looked very bad on offensive and slipshod on defense. But almost every football team has at least one bad day. In our opinion the Blue and White can't possibly turn in a more miserable performance than they did in that game. Against Milan the Hornets did look better. They tackled more . viciously, v as if they meant it. The Milan backs can testify to that. The Everettmen showed that in the blocking department of the game there is ever" so much room for improvement.; Time and time again they have demonstrated power and deception in the backfield, but poor blocking nullified both. There isn't a fullback in the Huron League who can hit .harder than Don Mueller. In Schaible, Hocking and Merce Everett are backs at least, equal" to if notbetter than any,, others in the confer- enc. The Hornet line is certainly just as heavy and just as seasoned as most of them. Just what, then, can be the matter ? The fault certainly does not lie in the coaching. This fact must be emphasized, for George Everett, an athlete's athlete •himself, knows the game and how to teach it. Also the losing streak cannot be attributed to lack of equipment or to playing and practice conditions . . . all of which« compares favorably with any in the league. This-leaves only one other alternative for us to resort to in order to explain the Hornet showing so far. Are the Hornets coasting? Are they napping on the job? Are they quitters? We have no reason to believe that the current Hornets are guilty of coasting. But we do know that they haven't been playing for keeps, that they Continued on Page 3 Ronald Taylor, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. riarlos Taylor, died instantly when he was hit by an automobile Saturday afternoon in front of his home at 11933 Michigan Ave. The little fellow, who had been making his home with his grandmother, Mrs. Minnie Lewis, at the Lewis Cabins on US-112, had started to run across the pavement to where his sister and a friend were gathering hickory nuts, and ran directly in'front of the automobile driven by William E. Brown, Detroit, who had no- opportunity to avoid him. The victim was hurled 150 feet when struck. Two residents of Napoleon, O., were severely injured in a truck-automobile collision on US-112, four and a half miles west of Saline, about 4:30 Saturday afternoon, while returning home from 'the Michigan- Iowa football game. D r. Anthony Delventhal, driver of the car, who was observing his 51st birthday, suffered several rib fractures, a Broken thigh and knee cap, and a possible fracture of the base of his spine. Dale Palmer, 38 owner of the car, suffered scalp lacerations, a possible brain concussion and - a possible fracture of the knee cap. Both are being treated at St. Joseph's Mercy hospital. The. truck driver, Gus A. Dunbar, of Inkster, received bruises''*atid his two 'daughters, '-" passengers in the truck, were quite badly injured; one was taken to an Ann Arbor hospital. Dunbar and the other daughter were brought back to the C. E. , Ray home where they were treated and later taken home. The Dunbars had spent the day at the Ray home Where. Mr. Dunbar had been working on a milk house. Dunbar told state police he was heading east when the west-bound Ohio caj; pulled out of a line of traffic and crashed, head-on into the truck. Police said that Dr. Delventhal and Palmer had apparently left the game early to avoid traffic.
