August 11 will be the last day clothes can be accepted for the half-starved Korean war orphans found by Captain Lawrence Deede, living in a 4 by 7 cardboard shack near his Air Base. Mrs. Lawrence Deede plans to ship the clothing to the chaplain on the Air Base for distribution on August 12. People in the Saline area have been very generous in their contributions. However, more clothes are still needed if all ten of the orphans are to be adequately clothed this winter. Any clothing for boys from the ages of four to seven will be welcome, but shoes, overshoes, socks and coats are particularly needed. If you have clothes you can spare please leave them at the Observer office or at Deede Radio & Electric, between now and August 12. Remember, children don't start wars, but they suffer from them. The people in this area may be instrumental in keeping ten war orphans alive through the coming winter. „ - * -:^t* #1 -V - a X* . * *"~ , r. -.. ~ *■ Christina Schneirle Wins Talent Prize Mrs. Lawrence Deede and Al Coley, Editor of the Saline Observer, display some cf the clothes donated for ten Korean War Orphans by people in the Saline Area. —Photo By Gray Walfred Larson Places Fourth In Road-E-0 Walfred Larson of Saline came in fourth at the State Finals of the JCC sponsored Teen-Age Road- E-O, held in East Lansing Saturday.

Saline Fair To Hold Chiffon Cafee. Contest The Saline Fair armiounced a special feature event for their 1952 cake baking- competitions.

Three special prizes will be awarded: First prize, a lovely silver-plated cake plate; second prize, Betty Crocker's famous new Picture Cook Book; third prize, Queen Bess pattern silver-plated cake server.

In its short four year history, it has grown to be a most popular cake and has won truly amazing consumer acceptance. This will be the fiftji conscutive year that special Betty Crocker Chiffon Cake contests have been setup at hundreds "of fairs across and the country.

They took back with them one of Mrs. Chris Fink- beiner's famous hickory nut cakes, which Mrs. Lawrenz says they %vill enjoy during the next few days, and with every bite of it will be thinking of the little white church by the side of the road and the friends on the highways and byways, all of whom t_ey lovt so dearly.
