y Everybody's Day Hi, Neighbor! By Ella V. MacQueen Sunday is Everybody's Day. It's designated as Mother's Day but since husbands and kids have had a hand in the creation of Mother, everybody has a hand in the celebrating, with Mom on the receiving end, and she's got to grin ana bear it. If little Junior and Sis decide to be chief cooks ana bottle-washers for the day, Mom may have to smile at bumec Bots and pans; exclaim estatically over burned vegetables. and slightly underdone roast beef, and listen unflinchinglj* to the crash of breaking china as "Dad and the kids act at her chore-doers* for the day, while she sits idly by, "enjoy ing" her leisure. We like special days, and Mother's Day is very special, and the first gifts on Mother's special day, when the youngsters are very small, and the special acts to prove to mother that she's "quite a nice guy," are never forgotten. Look in any mother's special "'memory box" and you'll see what we mean. During the past few. years, weeks and months have keen designated ior publicizing everything from •'Mationa. Baby Week to Pot Likker and Hush Puppies Week. During the past month "Be Kind to Animals" week was held, anc we've decided to start something new and, in commemoratior of our own "Let's Be Obnoxious and Tell a Whopper" week we offer the following product of hara-heartedness and un- kindness- to animals. Seven More Lives or It's A Lie, Honest I had a little kitten once My love for him was great. But he led such a wicked life My love soon turned to hate. I treated him so nicely, Fed him cream and group-up beef. But he'd eat little "helpless birds Much to my rage and grief. He Avasivt satisfied at all With the things cats ought to eat; He'd kill the cutest little mice Then lay them at my feet. My pet canary vanished. Acid while I searched the place. With feathers on his whiskers And a leer upon his face, That nasty cat sat watching, With his beedy eyes aglow. And then and there I vowed it-— That cat. or I, must go! So, since. I am the squeamish type, I called my loving spouse And said, "I will not tolerate That feline in my house. "Don't show him any mercy, And remember, cats are tough "Be sure the lake you drown him in Is plenty deep enough." And as he carried off the cat I hummed a little song; You may think that Fm heartless, But that cat had done me wroinfe-. I felt that I was justified - After the thiife lie^ddne^ ~**«-* -A> "-*'■ ■'■■" And I planned! for a canary To replace the murdered one. So, when said spouse came walking in, After a In hour or two, I asked, "Have you accomplished What you set out to do?" * He answered. "Don't you worry, Your cat is twice deceased., "For just before I drowned him, I beheaded the, poor beast." I went about my housework— Oh, how carefree I did feel. Till, glancing out I-saw a sight That made my senses reel, For strolling up the driveway Was the cat' I thought was dead, And in his mouth he carried His little severed head! THE SALINE OBSERVER A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER DEDICATED TO PUBLIC SERVICE, CIVIC ENDEAVOR AND AGRICULTURAL PROGRESS IN THE SALINE AREA VOL. LXXIV (Member of Saline Chamber of Commerce) SALINE, MICHIGAN, MAY 9, 1957 5c 1*ER COPY To Benefit Boy 'Road-e-o' : Advisory Council, Staff and School Board List School Needs Studieds By BESS H. TEFiFT For- Saline Area Advisory Council Like flowers unfolding in a Disney cartoon, our elementary youngsters are growing:—inch by inch—into high school students. Parents who know it's inevitable always feel the film is running too fast. Wishing doesn't alter facts, ■-hough, and we know it! Initial planning for a proposed h'gh. school to meet these enrollments has also been unfolding in recent months. The school Board ""'sited a school near Battle Creek and one in Mt. "Pleasant. All agreed that the suburban Springfield school, built for '600, was far superior in design, in use of ma- trials, and utilization of space. The architect for that school Was Guifla Binda, and his services were 'f subsequently obtained by the Board for planning a similar structure here. The Elementary room mothers also made a trip to Springfield., Their chairman, Mrs. Harold Frey," reports that the group was very favorably impressed with the building which "was not expensively built, yet liot cheaply built either." Later the High School teachers ■went to see the school and they too were enthusiastic about the building. No space was wasted, one cosimented, and clever touch- es - not expensive, but. useful ones ""fere in evidence everywhere. No one would think of ;going to a blacksmith today to have a tooth pulled, and most people seek ■nedical advice for a persistant Pain. Yet it's amazing how many "■""'U turn to the butcher, or baker or boiler maker for advice on edu- «atioa and schools. on May 17 Many people bold "drivers licenses, yet lack the necessary skill which characterizes a "good driver." 'The "Teen-age Road-e-o," sponsored by the Saline Junior Chamber of Commerce, will give all teen-agers a chance to test their skill and prove their driving ability.

TO MOTHER When God looked down upon the earth And sought with gifts to bless it He gave the sun to give it life, For hope, the stars express it. ^.1 ■ He sent the-changing seasons As a test of strength and love, For peace, He sent the raindrops : And the softly cooing dove. He sent the lightning and the rain, Then, when the clouds passed by, To kindle faith anew, He placed A rainbow in the sky. He sent the flowers for beauty, Aiid, for glory, songbirds too. And then Be sent for comfort ... Pr^ifeiis Mothers su'^h; -a| .^pjj^,, „..,, The Advisory' Council felt that the "teachers who have been trained for their job, and who are in daily touch with our children and their needs, were the logical sources of information and advice. Certainly we laymen should take advantage of their knowledge. I talked to Mrs. Bernice McCoy who has directed the first year of special education here. Believing that every young person has a right to the best education of which he is capable, Mrs. McCoy fcas helped eight boys and glip make up an entire -grade's work ■in the Opportunity Room. Ten others have also profited. '1 am proud," She said, "That Saline "Area Schools have provided the Oppor* tunity Room to help our junior high boys and girls find needed •help to achieve the most from their school experiences.'' As numbers increase, the need for this individual teaching will also grow. Next I talked to. Dwight Reynolds who teaches the shop courses. He had specific suggestions for improving the effectiveness of the shop program. The present shop is so occupied, since it is shared by science -classes too - that there is no room for a senior high group.
