Oiit came boots, hunting clothes, blankets, hats, pheasant feathers, gloves, a shotgun, and a doll which was worn, as a lady's hat. A little more youthful imagination Ejrid this mock wedding was staged for ph-oto.'.rapher Teddy Cousins.

Mr. Hellner was one of the incorporators of the South- " .stTE Michigan Production Credit Association _nd recalled that 20 years ago today there were less than 100 members in all Michigan PACs. "The growth of the Production Credit System to more than 10,000 members in Michigan is an example of Michigan farmers' ability and willingness to work out their own problems," said Mr. Hellner. Reviewing the 20-year history with Lyle D. Woodard, Secretary-Treasurer of the Southeastern Michigan Production • Credit Aassociation, Mr. Hellner noted that Michigan farmers had used their own credit organizations to borrow more than $130 .million .to pay for feed, seed, fertilizer, fuel, and other production supplies. Mr. Woodard pointed- out that these members had not only used their own credit organizations, but through purchase of capital stock had retired all government capital used tp brganize.these'lO PCAs At one time," said Mr. W00U- ard, the farmers had only a few dollars in these PCAs, and the -government had almost'$2 million, and today, the government has none, and the mem- capital and reserves."

Complaints report that "windows on homes in the area have been broken and also the police deparment discovered a glass pi a parking meter that has been broken through the misuse of BB guns. Police Chief Love in a statement said that parents could be held responsible for the acts of their children and reminds parents to use what ever means they can to prevent further misuse pf BB guns in the a- line area. A polio emergency is upon us— just six months after Saline and surrounding communities -dramatically raised §3,341.20 in the regular 'annual fund-raising campaign early this year. With, the high incidence months of August and September upon us for the dread disease Polio, and with funds rapidly depleting far ahead of schedule, "Washtenaw County Polio Foundation will join most of the rest of the nation in an emergency polio fund drive.' The special drive will begin August 16 and will continue through x\ugust 31. According to Mrs. Kay Burr, local polio chairman, Saline will participate in the drive and plans are underway to sponsor an ice cream social! All- proceeds from the social, of course, will go into the Polio fund. Mrs. Burr also went on to disclose why the emergency is upon us at this time. First, the national fund raising drive in January fell short of its goal by some $15,000, raising approximately .60,000 instead of $75,000. Secondly, the money collected this year was split three* ways' instead of two. A third Of the money raised went toward expenses incurred in the Salk vaccine tests, a third to the National Foundation for Polio, and a third for the Washtenaw County Foundation," which is used primarily for local patient aid. At the beginning of the year the local chapter owed $10,000 which it paid of,f leaving a balance of approximately $12,000. 23 New Cases There have been 23 new cases of polio here in Washtenaw since the beginning of the year and, as a result, a steady stream of finances have been pouring out of the county fund. For the past five years "Washtenaw has called on 'the National Foundation for additional finances due to the high incidence of polio here. Because the National Foundation finances are low this year, it is believed that no funds will be available for this county this year. Right now there is less than $3,000 in the county polio fund, and as a result polio officials are planning this new and urgently needed campaign to raise funds. A goal of $20,000 has been set for the county, but figures were not available what share Saline and the surrounding communities would be asked to raise. The plea for additional money to support the local polio foundation is unprecedented, but the seriousness of the matter left polio officials with no other choice than to carry their fight direct to the . public again, said Mrs. Burr. JCC Auxiliary Holds- Annual Family Picnic Saline Jaycee Auxiliary held their annual family night picnic at the Saline Park, Sunday, August 1st. i The picnic, which began at 5:00 p. m., was followed by a ball game for the men while the ladies just sat around and% visited. Rita Craigmile and Maggie Katz were co-chairmen for the event. Next meeting of the Auxiliary group will be held the 3rd Tuesday in September at the home of Mrs. Don Rapp. Beltsville turkeys, the small white breed of birds, get plump and meaty while they are still young.
