WASHTENAW COUNTY, MIClilGAN NUMBER 29 FIVE CENTS PER COPY $2.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE City Council Holds Special Session Disposal System Plans Are Discussed; Elsman To Quit Thursday night, April 10 the City Council met in special session to take care of the multitude of business items pending. James Little brought up the idea of a "planning Commission" to help lay plans for zoning Saline and to plan for the Sewage disposal system that must be installed in a few years. It was pointed out that it would be wise now to plan any building or construction around plans for where the new sewers must be laid. Mayor Wolfin named his committee only tentatively and as soon asj this is definite we will report it here. The paving of Mills Rd. was discussed and it was decided, 250 Children Attend Easter Egg Hunt About 250 children attended the, JCC Annual Easter Egg Hunt held at Saline High, Saturday, April 12. Because of the bad -weather the\ egg hunt was held inside. However, everyone had a whale of a good time anyway, and almost every child found at least a few of the 1200 eggs which were hidden in different areas of the school. The children's ages ranged from pre-school to nine years, and they were divided into three different age groups. Twenty-three lucky eggs were hidden and the children who found them were awarded prizes. Among the prize winners were: Janis Joe Jordan, David Williams, Nora Bixby, Larry Hieber, Bruce Car, Louis Turf, Jack Homes j Jerry Hieber, Steven Car, Doug- \ las Hehr, David Katz, Dennis Le-' mons, Janis Austin, Patty Bodour, Page McKeen, Donna. Richards, Carol Sevey, Jimmy Camburn,i Bobby Staring, Tommy Jeppesem and Jimmy Jorden. Two other, children left before their names could be taken. that it was of utmost urgency that this be done. The council reels that a long range plan of paving in Saline will save thousands of dollars in yearly maintenance costs. This action was not made into a resolution as yet pending bids for the paving from various contractors. A surprise was handed the council at the meeting when councilman Adrian Elsman turned in his tentative resignation. Mr. Elsman. stated simply, after his first vacation in Florida, that he was going to move to Florida to live. Mr. Elsman's term would expire this November. He has been on the council for two terms serving as mayor from 1948 to 1950. Mayor Wolfin may appoint a successor to fill out the unexpired term or he may leave the vacancy until election.Eith- er is legaJ. and is at the discretion of the mayor. Mr. Elsman now is employed as a salesman of auto parts, for Silkworth's -and he has been living in Saline for the past 17 years. His plans call for him to leave about the first of June for a month alone then he will bring his family along. Mr. Elsman states that there are a number of things he 'can do for a Jiving in Florida but as yet he is not certain which he shall choose.

The services were held at the Valentine school. The church is under the jurisdiction of Fr. L. 0. Kennedy of! St, Andrews in Ann Arbor. Father Coffee was the priest in charge of the Easter service. The altar was beautifully decorated with flowers and new yellow drapes which were hung behind the altar. Mrs. Emil Sattler had charge of the decorations*. ' Coach Dale Bulemore announces that he has picked the 1952 version of the Hornet baseball team. The blue and gold nine will be built around pitcher Dick Hoeft, catcher Vem Drake, first baseman Dick Miller, second sacker Ron Finkbeiner, third baseman Bob Leutheuser, shortstop Walfred Larson, left fielder Doug El- fring, centerfielder Dick Wied- mayer, and right fielder Jim Schroeder. These first stringers will be bolstered by pitchers Steve MacArthur and Jim Schroeder, catcher Gerry Miller, first baseman Dave Bredernitz, second basemen Dave Zick and Gene Austin, shortstop Al Gross, thirdbaseman Charles Anderson, and outfielders Jim Ford, Glenn Hagen, and Ed Raus. According to Coach Bulemore, the first three games will tell the story as far as the chances of the 1952 Hornet nine are concerned. The Hornets draw Chelsea, Flat Rock, and Milan—all top teams again this season—for their first three contests. "We are a veteran team ourselves," says Bulemore, "and on, that basis we ought to do something in the way of winning some games. But our first three opponents will be strong again and we'll have to hustle if we want to be contenders for the Huron League Crown."

Several outdoor sessions were held during the spring vacation last week, but too much couldn't be accomplished in that department because of cold weather and wet grounds.

I The Saline Rotary Club had a goat as their guest at last Thursday's meeting. The Goat was a gift of appreciation from George Wood to fellow Rotarian .Ed. Lauhon. Lauhon, who is part owner of the Ann Arbor Aero Service, did a repair job on a plane Wood borrowed from Dr. Harold Miller. When Wood returned the plane, he forgot to turn the master switch off, and, conse- uently, the battery ran down. When Lauhon sent Wood the bill, he also enclosed a note that read: "The purpose of the master switch is to disconnect the electrical current throughout the aircraft, ..It' should be left in the off position at all times when aircraft is being stored. "Refer to Ohms law — E equals I over fe, "The switch is a little gadget that goes up and down and clicks like a clock. Recharge battery; -Rental; Remove and install—total $3.50." Wood, who has been flying since 1941, appreciated the advice and cancellation of the bill so much that he decided to give Lauhon a, present. He also decided that a goat would make an appropriate gift. After the presentation,... the goat was taken outside and tied to Lauhon's truck. It is reported that while the Rotarians were eating steak, their guest was feasting on upholstery.

Washtenaw County can look forward to its own television on two stations which may be built under a plan of the Federal Communications Commission, in Ann Arbor. The FCC plan, which has just been adopted calls for 64 new stations in Michigan. Most of them will operate in the Ultra- High Frequency range, which is an untapned section of the radio spectrum. Use of this UHF band and expansion of the present Very High Frequency service should eventually permit nearly 2,000 new television stations in every section of the nation. The 108 television stations now operating in the United States are in the VHF range. "The adoption of the UHF plan in conjunction with the/ expansion of VHF means the beginning of a truly nationwide television service, with visual entertainment and education brought to remote areas mileS from the nearest cities," stated Dr. C. B. Jolliffe, vice president and technical director of the. Radio Corporation of America, which pioneered the development of UHF television. "We are ready to build the transmitting and receiving equipment to bring about this national television service." ■ When new stations are built, home television receivers will follow quickly, judging from the experience of present television areas. Based on the national pattern, Michigan can anticipate more than 1,000,000 sets a year or two after the new stations begin operation, with more than 20,000 sets in Washtenaw County alone. Under the FCC plan, near-by- cities and towns which may ob-! tain new stations, in addition to the six stations already in operation in Detroit, Gr(mdi Rapids, Kalamazoo and Lansing, are: Ann Arbor, Detroit, East Lansing, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Midland, Mount Pleasant, Pontiac, Port Huron, and Rogers1 City. Burglars broke into the Saline! High School Wednesday morning sometime between 12 o'clock and 6:30 a. m. and robbed the school! safe of about $230 in cash. All but $5 of the money belonged to the student accounting fund. A check was left untouched. The burglars entered the school by breaking a top window in the third grade room -on the main floor. They then broke a glass on the door, of Supt. Jensen's office, and entered the inner office where the safe is located. Although the safe was unlocked! the burglars didn't think to try the door. Instead they chiseled a three foot hole through a wall- about one foot thick. According to school authorities! the loss was covered by insurance. •The school building was lighted Tuesday night because of the Educational Advisory Committee meeting, and the burglars may have thought some school function, was going on and that they could steal the night's receipts.
