■? "^ If •/*• Superintendent's Message American education is developed most advantageously in those communities in which all the resources of the area are used co-- operatively. Our America is a great and successful nation in industrial and cultural growth, successful in obtaining high living standards. In our educational development keep pace with these swiftly moving developments so Hkc Stdinc Oitetwen, SEVENTIETH YEAR, NUMBER 35 SALINE, WASHTEKAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1953 Leo la. Jensen. that the creative power and the ingenuity- which fostered our greatness may be piroei. a ed The continuation of our greatness depends on th-1 way our citizens and our citizens-to-be are educated. As we continva to create and progress our society becomes more complex. The education of our young people becomes more difficult and more demanding. It required more time, more equipment, more and better trained personnel to maet the needs. A hundred years ago when the successful mastery of the three It's was all that was needed to meet the competition in life, education was a simple matter and could be obtained m a iew years. Today many years of school attendance is necessary and more and more young citizens are meeting the challenge by attending school even beyond the high school level. Greatness in our America was not obtained by maintaining a status quo. A changing dynamic society demands change.. Our schools in the past have been the leaders in our changing society. The American people have wisely and generously invested parts of their earnings in education far beyond the contribution of other nations, and well have they been repaid. It has always been the belief of the great majority of our people that the destinies of our country can most successfully be fulfilled through education of all the people. A great part of our responsibilities as American citizens of a great nation lies in the support of our schools. Leo L. Jensen. i Principal's Message To The Class of 1953: Although society seems to set its greatest store by wealth and power it is a strange fact that the greatest need of society is not citizenry of wealth or power. 48 SENIORS IN GRADUATING CLASS Forty-e"*rht seniors from the class of 1953 will be graduated from Saline High School in Commencement Exercises beginning at 8:00 -p.

It is hoped that several teams can be formed here in the city among various organizations and individuals. & John. Ford The realization of such goals is a rather hollow achievement in view of history's indication of the world's real need. If we but look anywhere around us, we can see the world crying for great spirited people who have 3. fine sense of values; people who possess humility, an appreciation and respect for the rights and opinions of others, a touch of gentleness and understanding, forgiveness of others, an appreciation for what we have rather than a dissatisfaction of what we lack, a belief in the brotherhood of .all people—a belief in God and His teachings. It is not enough to profess your belief in* such principles, you must constantly try to live them —a task that is not always easy, but one which will give immense return to both you and society. You will not long be remembered or admired for your wealth or your physical achievements, but your fine influence upon all people with whom you come in contact wil} always exist and be important. It is the one way most of you can serve the world and make your relatively brief existence truly worthwhile. John Patton Ford.

FAffi BOARD HOLDS MEETING Five members were present at the regular meeting of the Saline Community Fair Board held Monday night. Several items of interest were discussed. A representative of the Washtenaw Rabbit Breeder's association was present, and a motion was made and passed that the association be allowed to put on their pet show under the same conditions that they had last year. It was decided by the board that fencing be used at the fair this year along with stricter supervision of ticket sales. It was felt that these measures are necessary to increase receipts, . of the 1953 fair to cover ex-!f0Ught, pected losses of revenue sources | Parking Meters Being Installed Between 123 c::id 140 parking meters are now being installed in the heart of the City on Michigan Avenue and Ann Arbor Street. The meters will be set up on a maximum 2 hour and a minimum 12 minute limit. The meters have met with strong opposition from the business men of the city. Petitions have been circulated to defer the installation of the meters, and close to 300 signatures from qualified voters have been secured. Unofficially, an agreement has been*reaehed between some of the business men and some members of the council that calls for the installation of the meters for a trial period of six months, and with a vote of the electors of Saline during this six month period to determine whether or not the meters will be continued. For further details on this matter, read Bob Harrison's column. Mrs. Harold Girbach. and daughters of Clinton called at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Moehn on Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Arthur Moehn and little niece of Manchester called Thursday afternoon at the Carl Moehn home. . Memorial Day, Saturday, May 30.

One of them of note is that a petition has been circulated concerning the issue. It reals as followers r "The undersigned, qualified voters of the City of Saline, Michigan, do hereby respectfully petition the Council of said city, in accordance with provisions of the prevailing City Charter, that the council defer the installation of parking meters within the city until such time as the electors of the city shall determine by special balloting whether or not they shall be installed."
