GERMAN EXCHANGE STUDENT Klager Lists FINDS MANCHESTER FRIENDLY School Data * MANCHESTER— The friendliness of folks here in the village and at Wampler's Lake has been one pf the main differences noted -between Germany and America by Norbert Pfaffe, 16-year-' old exchange student from Ruhirgebretj who arrived here six weeks ago last Sunday. Norbert, a guest of the Allan Schaffer family, also finds the American habit of building homes for individual families unusual. In the Ruhr and most - of Germany, he notes two or three families often live under the same roof. Norbert hopes eventually to become a high school teacher of English and physics, and has already spent more than three years studying, the language. "I learned Oxford English, and it's very different, you know," he says, "h-a-r-f past eight in English becomes h-a-v past, in American." During enrollment at Manchester High last week, Norbert was quite surprised to find he could carry a full class course with only five subjects: Amer- " ican government, American lit- •erature, American history, home and family life and driver training. In German/ students, have Norbert Pfaffe and the Kev. Karl Rest as many as 13 subjects to study. On the "humorous side, Norbert has found that German translation of prominent local names brings some rather odd 'and amazing results: Some •come out. 'cucumbers" while others translate as "complain,- ers." Pfaffe, he says, means "preacher" . . . though no one in his family now can remember any relatives 'Wjjho served in that capacity." MANCHESTER — Program details for the dedication ser_ vices of the new $485,000 High School building Wednesday, Sept. 28, have been announced by Luther Klag,er," president of the Board of Education. An open .Jiouse will be held at the school from 6 to 8 p.m-, with parking handled by members of Ihe Junior Chamber of Com- . merce and ushering by members of the^ Manchester Civic Club. The official ceremonies will start in the combined boys-girls gymnasium at 8 p.m., when the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts lead the pledge of allegiance to the flag. The Rev. Karl Rest, pastor of the Evangelical and Reformed Church, will give 'the invocation.

He indicated that a full-time patrolman would be hired to replace Love. In a signed statement to the Council, Love said he Was resigning his position because of dissention within his department and "the refusal of the Police Commissioner to authorize me to conduct the department in an honest, impartial, straightforward way." Hartman told The Reporter he felt the resignation came because Love was "dissatisfied" and added, "I'm not being paid to sit around and hear petty gripes about the department." Love, who would have completed three years with the Saline police tomorrow, noted that this was his first job with a law enforcement agency and said, "I've tried to run the force and treat everyone the way I'd like to be treated by a policeman." Expressing his thanks for "wonderful cooperation" "from part-time members of the force, he maintained that repeated violations of basic rules he had established for the police was one of the factors leading to his resignation. Rules which he listed in his statement to the Council included: 1) that the police car should be driven in a 'safe and careful manner" at all times, 2) that the car should not be hidden from plain view in ap- prehendin gtraffic violators, and 3) that only authorized persons should be permitted to ride in the car. Hartman, who Was first informed of Love's resignation by a news reporter, expressed confidence in the way the entire force was conducting itself and Robert Love * * * said, "Everyone knows you don't have to hide on US-112 to catch traffic violators." Love "told The Reporter he plans to remain a deputy sheriff and discharge his responsibilities tjo the .sheriff's office and stsate with regard to, driver licensing. He said his , future plans were, "uncertain", but that he planned to r$mauv in Saline with his family. By Bob Beyers SALINE — The city's new 73,000 elementary school building is already filled to capacity, Mrs. Marion Barclay, principal, reported Monday. Enrollment at the school Monday was 615, with aii additional 255 in Junior High and 172 in Senior High bringing the city's total to 1,142 students. Originally designed with 18 classrooms for 30 students each, the elementary school was expanded during construction to 20 classrooms- All theste are filled to capacity and additional space is being,, sought for the sixth grade, which includes approximately 80 students divided in sections of 40 each. Monday afternoon Mrs. Barclay and Schools Superintendent Leo Jensen examined the room originally set aside for library and utility space t osee if it could be converted to class use. Jensen told The Reporter that no final decision would be reached on this for a week or two, pending further study and action by the School Board. Addition of a third section to the sixth grade would require hiring of a new elementary teacher full time, according to Mrs. Barclay. It would, however, bring the total number of students in each section under 30, a size better suited for teaching purposes. Pre_school estimates had placed the size of the sixth grade at approximately 6D—just where the extra pupils came from is anyone's guess. . In a separate development related to the sharp increase in student enrollment, Jensen announced that a new school bus route Would be added "as soon asl possible," perhaps within two weeks, to relieve overcrowding on present transport fac? * ?Dwight* '*^eyiioTo!s*'^'r^oftea; that the new route will go West on US-112 to Marion Rd., South to Johnson, East to Macon, and thence to the school Bus drivers will inform students when the new route is started, he said. The school is now using all available busses; for1 nural routes, and may have to borrow equipment temporarily for the new route pending arrival of another new bus of its own. A new parking system for the busses Was introduced this week at the elementary 'school to a_ void spreading equipment in line along Harris St. and speed up boarding by children after classes. Under the new arrangement, the busses have been assigned spaces to park diagonally in front of the school. Parking on either side of the driveway closest the school will be prohibited after 3 p.m. Starting, date for the hot lunch_ program at the elementary school has been set back to Monday because work tables have not yet been received for the kitchen and some equipment has not been installed. Meanwhile, a group headed by Mrs'. Oscar Weber is serving milk for use -with sack lunches. Enrollment Monday by class was1 as follows: first, second and third grades, 119 each; fourth grade, 96; fifth grade, 82; sixth grade, 80; seventh grade, 84; eighth grade, 98; ninth grade, 73; sophomores, 54; juniors, 55; and seniors, 63. An. additional 10ft pupils are in kindergarten, 60 in the morning session and 49 in the afternoon. Gendron Set To Quit Post Frank Gendron SUPERIOR TOWNSHIP — Washtenaw County farmers, 4- H Club members and their friends have been invited to^at- -tend a farewell card party and tdance for ?Frank Gendron, Coun- Ss^^MagenV at"4lie."TSwhs*hip" hall at'8 p.m. Thursday. Gendron has accepted a position at Michigan State University effective Sept. 20. County 4_H agent- since June, 1951, he plans to work as a dairy specialist for MSU while studying for his Ph. D. in dairy production. Evidence of Gfendron's skill in developing top 4->H dairy judges is reflected in the fine showiny made by County 4-H teams over the past .four years. During this period more than half the state 4_H dairy judging teams were composed of Washtenaw club members." Three years ago, the Michigan team captured the •national 4_H ' championship, while in 1953, Arnold Girvach of Saline took top individual honors as national champion 4_H dairy judge. No successor as 4_H agent has been named, but a replacement is expected in the near future from MSU. SALINE'S FIRST POLICE WOMAN HELPS KIDS CROSS US 112 DAILY speaker of the evening, Dr. Jonn A. Hannah, president of Michigan State University. Further band selections and a benediction by the Rev. Rest will close the services. SALINE — The city's first woman traffic officer, Mrs Robert Starling, sayS .she feels she's taking her life in her hands every time she steps to the'middle of USJL12 at Harris St. to help pupils from the new elementary school go to and from classes safely. A Michigan Ave. resident long familiar with the rumble of big semi-trailers through town, Mrs. Starling says she's found the traffic heavy at times but co-operation from truck drivers "excellent." She believes truckers and out- of-town drivers are a bit more aware of the long white S-C-'-H- O-O-L letters across the highway than local folk who use the" road daily. Pending installation of a mobile red blinker signal ab the intersection, the letters, a Whistle, and her own hand warning signals are the only barriers between Mrs. Starling and a "ond of traffic. "One driver even said he couldn't see me, she ccmmented wr»v. but I'm sure I'm not that petit," The driver? A mar., of course. \ ' ■ , - 7'
