/ , ' Saline Sidelights While conversing with Virginia Carr the other day, we discussea the Saline Fair. She made a re- mrk concerning the appeal a fair has for mostly everyone. She wondered if anyone ever got too old to get _ thrill out of seeing the first trailers of the carnval arrive. Shr spoke of the joy parents get out of their children's excitement during Fair Week. Speaking of the Saline Fair reminded this writer of the Washtenaw County Fair which used to he held in Ann Arbor every year around August sometime. Do you recall the exhibits from all over the rounty, the midway, the races, the programs held on the grandstand, and most of all meeting old friends you had not seen since the preceding year. In particular, "the merchants building with its attractive displays and the snjall gifts the "merchants would give away which would delight the heart of a small ehild. Now the buildings are in a dilapidated condition, the r„ce track uncared for, the grounds grown to weeds, and rubbish thrown around. Why was. the fail- discontinued? I often wonder. At fair time it sort of gives V>ne a nostalgic feeling to pass by the fair grounds which used to be teeming with activity. Mrs. Douglas Hoeft is heartily in accordance with the installa tion ■ of the parking meters. She says that now it is possible to find a place to park uptown. She feels that after you get over the first shock of having meters, you get used to them, not to mention the money which it gives the town. Ran across a couple of small sayings which seemed to be quite good: An ideal small town is one where everybody speaks TO everybody else and not ABOUT them. (2) Revenging an enemy makes you but equal with him, forgiving sets you above him. Mrs. Elvin Armbruster has the highest of praise for the entire staff at the Saline General Hospital. She said that everything was -wonderful the whole way around, she received excellent care and her visit in the hospital was really enjoyable. This speaks well for the efficiency of Mr. and Mrs. B. Badour and the entire hospital etaff. According to Mrs. Armbruster, Saline may well be proud of its hospital. Have You Seen Him?

Carling Conservation Films To Be Shown At Rotary Meeting Two Carling Conservation • Club films, "Pheasant Island," and "Survival Perilous," will be shown at" the Rotary meeting, Thursday, Oct. 8. "Pheasant Island," although basically a hunting picture, is one of the finest examples of applied conservation ever filmed. This is a story where Ring Necked Pheasants are encouraged to multiply on 10,000-acre Pelee Island, located in Lake Erie hetween Detroit and Cleveland. Farmers on the island leave stands of grain for the 65,000 to 100,000 birds to feed upon during the winter months. Once a year, a two or three day hunting season is set up for hunters to harvest the crop and bring the excessive pheasant population back into balance. "Survival Perilous" deals with the vanishing caribou. Every phase of the lives and habits of these animals, determining what they eat, what they require in their habitat, and the course of their migration was checked and filmed to obtain complete information regarding them.
