Sell Our Neighbors On Saline THE SALINE OBSERVER The Community With A Future J^FeNTY - THIRD YEAR ^ (Member: SALINE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE) . J* THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1956—SALINE, MICHIGAN ^ FIVE CENTS PER COPY ogan Contest Closes Tonight Around Our Big City Universal has erected a water tower on tneir property on Monroe Street Capacity around 50,000 aallons. Cost of construction about $30,000. Store hours are still a major problem in Saline. The Chamber of Commerce committee studying the situation has so far agreed to a Saturday night opening for all stores. But it has not definitely been settled. The only solution seems to be to ask the people themselves what night they would like to do their shopping. The Fred Ahrens had a real scare last Monday when fire broke out of the chimney on the rear porch. The Saline Fire Department was on the scene less than five minutes from the time the siren sounded. Damage to the roof was slight. Saline Chamber Offers $50 Bond For Best Slogan The Arthur Moehns welcomed to their home Deborah Ann, a second daughter, who arrived around 4 a.m. Monday. All members of the family are doing well, and Art looks particularly happy these days. The fence around"' the Universal property adjoining the citys former dump has been completed — with gates wide open. Wonder how people are getting along without a new dumping spot? The Saline Chamber of Commerce in quest for a suitable slogan for its billboards is offering Saline residents a $50.00 Treasury Bond- as a prize for the best sentence in ten words or less describing Saline. At a meeting held last Monday night it was decided to increase the amount by another $25 bond from the original offer. Some replies have already been received, but it was felt that notjenough publicity had been given the contest. It is hoped the additional bond will give added interest to the contest. Everyone is welcome to submit an entry—students, parents, businessmen, merchants, doctors and doctor's wives, ministers, too, and their wives. An entry blank may be clipped from an advertisement printed elsewhere in this issue. Fill in this handy blank with ten words or less, mail or leave it with any member of the Chamber of Commerce. Mail it to Slogan Contest, Post Offfice, Saline, Michigan. The prize-winning slogan will appear on billboards to be erected at east and west entrances to Saline on US 112. It will also appear in all literature of an advertising nature prepared and distributed by the Chamber of Commerce. Prize winner will be notified by the judges as soon as they reach a decision. Contest closes tonight, June 1. Any entry postmarked 1 a.m. Saturday morning will be considered. It is expected many residents will enter the contest. It is easy! No gimmicks, nothing to buy or nothing to sell. Sharpen those pen cils boys and girls. Get busy and . tell the rest of Michigan why it is good to live, in Saline! Can you write a slogan? It's worth a $50 bond to the person who best describes Saline in ten words ir less, contest 'is o^gn to everyone. Subscribers to The Observer were surprised to find two copies of the paper in their P.O boxes last week. The explanation for this is very simple: in keeping with past service, rural carriers found it easier to distribute tiie Observer to city boxes instead of their rural routes. You would think some of the improvement to the Post Office building might rub off on the personnel. But not that bunch! They're too nice to be improved. Let's wait to see what happens when the next edition of the Farm and Home section is ready for distribution. Attending the Memorial Day exercises of the American Legion Wednesday we were impressed with the words of Rev. Siemsen. They were earnest and solemn, with a message of danger that should not be forgotten. We counted 12 American flags on display in our business district Wednesday. Pretty poor show ing for "free enterprise." An election for a school board member is coming up in July. The number of petitions being circulated isnt evident as yet, hut Saline voters will do well to select a "people's man." Some say that two new schools are being discussed by the Advisory Committee. The Saline Observer extends birthday greetings to the following: Webb Harwood, Luella Warner, Mrs. Amanda Harwood, Roger Hasmer, Robert Love, Danny Murray, Judy Gordon, Marie Meddaugh, Harold Socks, Aldean Jedele and Candy Parks. Happy Birthday. Junior Farm Bureau George Schnierle, Chairman of the Junior Farm Bureau workers, presided over a meeting of twenty five young people at the home of Richard Wenk on Tuesday, evening, May 29th, and later in the evening presented a film, strip with accompanying recording of a trip whfcSi he-made last summer to a Luther League convention in Texas. Tentative plans were made to send two members of the group to the State Junior Farm Bureau camp at Dowling Michigan in June, and it was also learned that Ypsilanti Farm Bureau store has made a generous offer to help send one of the group on a South Carolina tour and Convention in late July. So far no one has accepted. The young people decided to take over the ice cream booth at the County wide chicken barbecue and picnic being held by the Farm Council and Farm Bureau Women on June 24th to raise money toward the proposed Rural Activities Building for Veterans's Park in Ann Arbor.

Thousands of World War II veterans in Michigan stiU hold Armed Forces Leave Bonds that have drawn no interest for five years or longer, and Uncle Sam would like'to pay up — an average of $200 apiece. k In the country as a whole,- 130,000 veteans hold Leave Bond worth $26 million. It's all that's left of more than two billion dollars paid to members of the Armed Forces discharged between April 1, 1943 and October 1, 1946. The five-year bonds, carrying an interest rate of 2% per cent a year, were used to reimburse veterans for unused leave. A special act of Congress in 1947 made the bonds redeemable after September 1 of that year. Some $1.5 billion were cashed with in the next few months.; others were held to draw additional interest However, the last of these manured on October 1, 1951, and have drawn no interest since that date. The Treasury would like to clear its books of this -bond issue, and is calling on all veterans' organizations to help locate the 130,000 bond owners. ! The 1956 Michigan Award trip whose purpose is to give recognition for the outstanding effort of Junior High Students, has become quite developed in the past few weeks. Beginning on May 8 committees were formed and have been working steadily. To be eligible for the trip a student must be in grades 7 thru 9. He is made familiar with the trip at an assembly at the beginning of school year where slides of the previous trips are shown and the requirements of the trip are discussed. Towards the end of the school year the students are- elected by the teachers. The various committees formed were the route, planning, food, equipment and financial committees. The route committee has worked out several possible routes but no specific one has yetbeensel- no specific one has yet been selected. The planning committee has decided that it would be better to get to Marquete as soon vas possible and make short trips out from there. The group will camp in State parks. It has been estimated that it will cost $10.00 per person for food and ransportation. This will cover_abou 18 meals. Some food will be donated by the students while it is hoped that some .will be donated by local merchants. The equipment committee has sent a list comprising of all the personal equipment necessary. The group has also collected tents and ice boxes. There is a treasury where the students put any extra money that they earn. Before the trip the money will be divided equally. To earn more money, the group had a bake sale and is planning a dance. This must cover transportation, food, camping fees, etc. Besides Mr. Jaquith, sponsor at the trip.Mrs. Furhman, Miss Barbara Heiden, Kit Young, and Mrs. Jedele will accompany the students. This will make a total of about 35 people. For transportation a bus will be more advisable than several ears because It is less expensive safer, convenient, and easier parking. The group will leave for Marquette on June 10 and return June 16. Baccalaureate Program "June 3, 8 p. m. PRELUDE "Romance" Sibelius Mr. Arthur Katerjohn PROCESSIONAL.
