"■•v. * *76e Scdutc Ofa&wen SIXTY-EIGHTH YEAR NUMBER 40 SAIJNE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, JULY 5, 1951 FIVE CENTS PER COPY $2.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE Along The MainDrag It was good to see so many flags flying in Saline yesterday. Any outsiders traveling through couldn't accuse the Saline citizens of lack of loyalty to their flag and country. e Speaking of people travelling through, they are still coming in droves — Kansas, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Texas—no end in sight. We can only reason that if so many out-of-state people reach Saline, this town must certainly be a popular community in a popular state. • Accident reports for the Fourth of July holiday are not totaled yet, but if traffic everywhere in the country moved as smoothly and carefully as it did past our window, results of fatalities would be comparatively low. Chief Albertson and Officer Joseph deserve a commendation for their alertness in keeping every motorist possible, conscious of the fact that the Main Drag of Saline is not a speedway. • If you know anyone who owns a big gray tomcat that has been loose in the business section of town, they might like to know that said cat has had two narrow escapes with passing automobiles — in spite of the careful driving. Assuming that" cats do have nine lives, this leaves ranly seven for "Master Tom", providing he hasn't used them at other times. • Pale green, mixed with rippling brown and gold—wheat's getting ripe around this area. Think what it may mean to millions of starving people in other parts of the world • IN REGARDS TO THAT ALLEY FENCE, we received the following note: "Those who are interested in the property back of the Sturm store may seek Lifelong Resident Passes at 70 Mrs. Lydia Marion passed away at her home, 211 W.

Stoternment was fin Oakwood cemetery. information from Mrs. Sturm. This property is privately owned. There has never been an alley joining my property. There have been people using this property without even as much as consulting the owner. The renters in the building have nothing to do with my action and know nothing about it." Mrs. Sturm. Ah, the good old summertime. It doesn't matter to the school age lads "fishing" along the Saline river that their equipment consists only of a branch, some old string and a safety pin for a hook. Maybe they don't catch any 'fish, but they sure have a lot of fun getting their lines wet, which is something many adults don't have a chance to do with all their business obligations. Interesting facts—David Far- ragut, first Admiral of the Na- v.y, was born on this date in "•811. About twenty-two years ago tomorrow, transcontinental mail service was establish.

The position held by Feuell is highly important to the army since it involves keeping up thfe moral of many thousands of men at the Fort which is located twenty-five miles from the nearest town of any size.

Having arrived at Fort Leonard Wood shortly after it was re-opened for Korean training, Feuell has produced every all-camp show since that time. From the seventh,to the eleventh of June, Feuell produced and directed "The Fabulous Twenties," a show put on for wounded veterans stationed at Leonard Wood after returning1 from Korea. This show, due to its_ success, was held over for three nights, making a total, of eight performances to a full house. For his work, Feuell received special commendation from Major General Samuel B. Sturgis, Jr., Post Commander who stated, "It was thS finest soldier show that I have ever seen in three mobilizations." Among the nationally famous name bands arranged for under Feuell's, direction are Tommy^ Dorsey, Harry James, Ted Lewis, Johnny Long, Claude Thorn- hill and Frankie Masters.
