Saline High School Teen Canteen Has Very Good Attendance The Saline area «ere trying out park is being prepared for the Fourth of July. Walter Moore is shown the new hammer knife mover that the city ef Saline has just purchased What Are Your Plans For the 4th What are you planning for the 4th of July? Are you planning to take the family on a picnic in the park? Maybe you plan on spending the week-end at the cottage on the lake, riding in your speedboat, or water skiing; or swimming. You could take a trip to grandma's house or Aunt Lucy's house, or just go sight seeing. I think that most people will agree that the best place to, go would be to bed, or at least stay home.; That way you would be reasonably sure of staying alive ;and having your ^i'hole family around you next week. There will be the usual amount Of smart euys, speed demons," and women driver's on the road who make it unsafe for anyone" to even cross the street on foot, let alone drive down the highway. The 4th would be a good day to work in the garden or clean house, or have a picnic in the back yard. But if you have tb go out on the highway, be. careful, drive slow and watch out for yourself and the other guy.
