OBSERVE Serving This Community For More Than -Seventy Years SEVENTY-FIRST YEAR SALINE, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1954 FIVE CENTS PER COPY /* Sim III, Visits His Grandfather's Old Newspaper Plant, Here A strikingly handsome man slopped in at the office of The Saline Observer, Tuesday and announced that he would like to see the shop that his grandfather had operated for many years. Introducing himself, he said, "I'm Sim Wilson, HE- I've heard my grandfather tell about his experiences here at SaUne and I just wanted to stop in and see place." Wilson, a Lt. j.g. in the Navy, had just been separated from service at Boston, Mass. and r"! on 'lis way home to Marys- viTe. Washington. He planned t-> t-^'e several weeks to make the journey home and included Letter To The Editor The following merchants and business men of the city attended a meeting last Monday for the purpose of prompting co- c^ei-ftion among the merchants c^ Spline: Roy Dechert, Robert Fliiefer. Dorothv Walker, Alfred Schmidt, Robert Moon, Arthur Hagen, Sam Lambarth and Leon Vetter. Larry Deede expressed a will- in err.pert, f0 g0 pJong with any proposals but was unable to attend because he was out of town. The conclusion to be drawn from this would seem to be that these are the only merchants interested in any sort of co-operation. Surely this is not the case. Shall we give it another try, or shaU we admit that we are not interested in any sort of cooperative effort? It certainly won't hurt the city and it might go a long way toward improving the competitive position of the city- Robert Moon. the Saline Observer in one of his Michigan stops. He had never visited in Michigan Before. His grandfather, Sim Wilson, who published the Observer for many years, passed away last summer at Marysville, Washington. Sim Wilson's son, Sim, Jr. publishes a newpaper at. Marysville, Washington. Sim, HI served in the Atlantic and Medeteranean Fleets during his tour of duty in the navy. 4-H Club Meets At A.

OTHER HOSPITALS HAVE GROWN - WHY HOT SALINE'S? • Some of the main attractions that a community is judged on by persons looking for" a new community to live in are, school facilities, hospital facilities, city servces including fire and po- lce protection. It is not difficult to see at a glance that Saline has much to offer in all departments, except hospital facilities. It is very apparent to all that Saline is in a position to grow to a great extent within the next ten years or so. It is also apparent that it has grown within the last ten years, but our hospital facilities remain the same. Do you know of another hospital in ashtenaw County that has not built large additions within the last ten years, including St. Joseph Mercy and University at Ann. Arbor and Beyer at Ypsilanti,"* arid also Tecumseh Hospital? The problem we face has been faced and met by these communities. We are fortunate that we have people operating our local hospital who are the right sort of people and interested in offering the best of services.. But as it takes more than brick and mortar to make a fine institution, it also takes more than the personal willingness to serve, it must be coupled with the right kind of a physical plant. I know of no short cuts in cost or work to make our desires a reality, it is the same old story of all giving as niuch as they can, not only of money but also of their time and interest. The new hospital was started a long time ago in-the hundred dollar contribution most of the business men of Saline gave to purchase the land which we own, free.and clear. It was also started by the many meetings the hospital committee has held for several years, and now it is being started in the interest you have in it, no one knows when it will be finished. Perhaps the interest you put into it will decide that date. A CITIZEN. Rev. Walter J. Field, lecturer, English educator and missionary from the Holy Land will present his timely lecture and sound motion pictures on "Life in War-Torn Palestine" at The Methodist Church, on Sunday November 21st at 7:30 P.

From these years of first-hand experience he is a well qualified and un- baised speaker on the Jewish - Palentine. The film, "The Holy Land Passing Parade", which Mr. Field will show is a complete and original sound film on Palestine.

Local leaders have chosen to give support to the Christian Rural Overseas Program (CROP) which distributes food to hungry people in other countries. It has been emphasized that Thanksgiving affords an appropriate time to the "Share Our Surplus" program which has been made possible through the cooperation of congressional action and World Service agencies of the Churches. It is now possible for every twenty dollars worth of surplus dollar that is given to take food out of storage and place it in the hands of hungry children or old people in the needy areas of the world. Saline will have its opportunity to answer the SOS call on Thanksgiving Eve.
