Grand Finale to be Held Sat. at Schmid's Market In a recent issue of the Hostel News, a publication printed in New York, there appeared on one of its pages a cut of a Hostel and the manager, with the question asked as to "who the gentleman was and where the Hostel was." Well, if any of the folks around Saline were to see the publication they "would know at once that it was no other" than Johnny Rule, the congenial manager of the Saline Youth Hostel, with a picture of the Hostel. . It was learned from Mr. Rule this week that the Saline Valley Hostel is the Oldest such establishment this side of the Alleghany 4no*-ntains, having been opened on Milkey road in 1937. It seems that at one time the hostel was a canning factory for the Saline Valley Farms. In fact the store windows are still in the front of the building and is now used as a large dining room- and kitchen. There is a large Walk-in refrigerator and a modern elecjrie stove in the kitchen.^ * * „■ About three quarters* of -a mile from the building on the farm property is Ella - Lee Lake, a 'spring-fed lake large enough for both swimmers and boaters. The lake is backed up by a picnic.area with tables," -swings and a field for baseball. * J_r" and" Mrs." John Rule,, the house parents of the hostel have welcomed many persons from far away lands as well as- the folks from the surrouding area.- Th_ hostel visitors book looks like the register of an international hotel, with the names of travelers from Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, Germany and, yes, a fellow _roin Brooklyn. One of the - important visitors at the SalmeValley Hostel was the Secretary ylneral of the Swiss _buth Hostel Association and a member of the Executive Board of The International Youth Hostel Federation, who -stopped over on his way to a meeting sponsored by the Metrppolitaft New (Continued on page 3), The grand finale of the Schmid's Food Market's 60th Anniversary sale will come Saturday of this week. There will.be a large anniversary birthday cake to be cut and passed out to the customers by the Schmid's employees on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There will also be free balloons for the children. As a climax to this event, will be the passing out of thirty free baskets of food to the visitors holding the lucky number. Each market basket in the store will carry a number and there will be duplicates of the same in a box, from which the lucky numbers will be drawn. Schmid's Food Market has been a family owned market for the past sixty years, and from, a beginning of one small room, which is now just the front of the present store, they have grown. In 1948 the original building* was becoming too small and a new section 60x70 was added along with four refrigerators and anew smokehouse. This growing up from the infancy stage has only been, accomplished by the many friends and customers .'-..-.*'.*■* the Schmids. have .gathered around them in the passing years. Erwin _-chmid said today "that the organization from the beginning* to the present day force attending the needs of their customers, have feit ;that the people of Saline and the surrounding area have helped them to arrive at this their 60th Anniversary, and the entire Organization wishes to thank each of you, and wishes you aTt^a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New ■____.""»■■ Rev. and Mrs. McKenzie were at the First Presbyterian: church in Bucyrus, Ohio, -last Sunday, of which their son Rev. H. S. McKenzie is pastor. Rev. Henry McKenzie delivered the sermon for the baptism of his 3-month-old granddaughter. Tommy Phelps Breaks Leg In Fall On Ice Tuesday of last week a group of children Were playing train on the ice at the Saline Elementary school, when they suddenly fell with several of the youngsters* falling on Tommy Phelps. Tommy suffered a broken leg, and is novy\a ■ patient in St. Joseph Hospital, Ann Arbor. With the holidays so near, it* would be nice if the friends and playmates of Tommy would send him cards and pay him a visit, to help the long period required for broken bones to "mend. His address will be Tommy Phelps, 4th Floor, St. Joseph Hospital. Ann-Arbor, Mich.
