Elementary School Menu On Page 8 OBSERVER Saline's Home Newspaper for Over 70 Years SEVENTY-SECOND YEAR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1955, SALINE, MICHIGAN FIVE CENTS PER COPY Community Fair Called Huge Success Here •¥- Mb i__ .j.j_: Be:*utifnl weather -welcomed last Wednesday, opening day of the Saline Community Fair, with a big program of events scheduled to meet every taste, especially for the children, to whom the day was dedicated. Tiie younger generation from tots to teen-agers, entered into the spirit of the occasion with happy, enthusiastic anticipation. In short, the kids had a field day and took advantage of every moment to enjoy their loot of fun. The sanies and rides provided hy the Happyland Concessions kept hundreds of youngsters moving at a steady pace, while the merry-go- round, always popular with the small fry, had a continuous line of customers — potential cowboys and Annie Oakleys eager to mount brightly painted steeds and be off on the trail of some imaginary varmint who "went thataway," and all this dusty traveling to the tune of 'Margie on the juke box. Unusual Exhibits The Florilculture Exhibit placed on the stage of the Gym and supervised by the Saline Women's Club, contained hundreds of Fall blossoms beautifully and tastefully arranged, while the Home Economic, Agricultural and Hobby Departments on the Gym floor displayed some of the most interesting and beautiful items ever presented at a Saline Fair. Mrs. Fred Arend, Superintendent of Home Economics, supervised many exhibits with a well-chosen committee to assist her. Her exhibits were Fancy Work and Machine Sewing, which included dresses, embroidery and crochet-work, patchwork quilts rag and hooked rugs, handmade purses and wall decorations. Mrs. Amanda Mayer was chairman of Machine Sewing, Mrs. Lawrence Boettner, chairman of Fancy Work. The Agricultural tables, supervised by Fred Arends, contained grains, corn, fruits, vegetables and eggs, all a source of. much interest, while the Baked Goods, Mrs. Everett Wolfin, chairman, and the Canned Fruits and Vegetables, with Mrs. Florence Sheehan, chairman, abosorbed the attention of every home-maker. Five special prizes, aside from the regular Fair prizes, were awarded in the Home Economics Department. This special prize system was inaugurated a few years ago when Mrs. Aarend felt that such a prize would prove an incentive to those who worked especially hard on their fair entries. She visited merchants of Saline who gladly contributed items for these prizes, and have been doing so each year since. Winners this year were: Best Canned Fruit, Mrs. William Bennett — Pressure Cooker donated by Wood Hardware; Best Angel Food Cake, Janet Luckhardt, Sunbeam Jr. Mastermix, donated by Green's Jewelry; Best Devil's Food Cake, Bob Brown, Saline High School, Hoover Steam Iron donated by Gamble Stores; Best piece of Hand Sewing, Anri Kueibler, Saline High School, Desk Lamp, donated by Walker's 5 & 10 Store, and Best Fancy Work, Mrs. Josephine Luckhardt, Beacon Blanket, donated by Dancer Dry Goods Co.

For the past couple of years, however, the dinners have been discontinued, but now, with the football season at hand, Ro- tary'has decided to renew the custom of serving them. Dinners will be prepared in two units: a plate dinner for those who wish to eat before the game will be Close to eight hundred farmers from many parts of Michigan and interested citizens convened in the Saline Elementary School auditorium Monday evening to listen to Under Secretary of Agriculture True D. Morse, and other farm-expret panel members discuss agricultural policy, and to take part in the grass roots, town-meeting type of discussion. x , Sponsored by the State Central Committee of the Republican party and the Washtenaw County Republicans, the meeting was not confined to partisan matters, but took up questions reflecting a cross section of frank farm thinking all along the line, and established a pattern for similar meetings throughout the state. The panel, moderated by U. S. Senator Charles E. Potter, was composed of panelists Ernest Girbach of Saline, director of the Michigan Milk Producer's Association; William Brake, master of the M: *h;gan State Grange, and Daniel Rood, Legislative Council for the Michigan State Farm Bureau. Also on the platform were U. S. Representative George Meader and William Hayes, chairman of the Cotuity Republican Farm Subcommittee. . After preliminary remarks from the panel members, all present were invited to submit questions or topics for discussion and these were presented to the platform guests by Senator Potter. The price-cost siueeze, under which farmers are having to pay Increased prices for machinery and necessary production equipment, while they receive less for their products, was of primary interest. Secretary Norse pointed out that this situation is being relieved gradually by the disposal of surpluses and the adoption of a flexible support program which is only now going into effect. The result of this program cannot be rightly judged yet as farm policy is still which have been in force for several years. His department and others interested in the farm problem are recommending legislation to speed the readjustment of farm prices from a fixed support to a flexible basis. These bills are coming up before Congress this fall. The Agricultural Act of 1954 is only now starting to take effect. Problems raised by members of the audience dealt with Canadian imports * of wheat which are interfering with Michigan -wheat acreage allotments and the re- seed marketnig; wheat and corn voting; milk prices in the Detroit striction of small farmers from milk shed area; and the legal aspects of specialty crop bargaining rights, which many—including William Brake of the Michigan State Grange—felt were hampered under present laws. " Poniting out that the huge surpluses which have weighed heavily against the farmer in past years, are being disposed of steadily Secretary Morse spoke optimistically for the future. For instance — he feels that by the spring of 1956 these surpluses will be small enough to change the present trend for the farmer*. Senator Potter and Secretary fide farmers during the day and Morse both felt that hey had gained much from their contact with bona evening session. Secreary Morse said that the best thinking and judgements available are being brought to bear upon the problems which farmers face, and that he personally welcomes all sincere thinking and he urged those present to write or otherwise communicate with him their constructive ideas. True Morse, since he was from- erly with the Doane Agriculture Service, is not a new name to farmers who have kept abreast of their own problems. He stated that it is the feeling of his department that if farmers are told the facts they will arrive at the right decisions. The facts show that farmers have not shared fully in the great prosperity of the nation, but the production and consumption of farm products is now nearly in halance with surpluses decreasing daily, the trend should soon be evident In a rising farm Income. _iTo",._!*,.5'"s meeting climaxed a half day of activity for the Secretary who spoke at a Kiwanis luncheon in Ann Arbor at noon to members and farm guests. Following he took a tour of the county, stopping at a dairy farm in Salem Township—belonging to Sam Bailo; then a dairy and hog farm belonging* to Mrs. Donna Baldus of Dexter, then the beef cattle farm of John Brooks near Ghelsea, and terminating at the R. G. Layher farm on ilaple Road, Saline.
