!-*> SUBSCRIBERS NOTE If you do not get your copy of The Reporter on publication Say, please phone NO 3-4066 VOL. 9, NO; 46—THURSDAY, AUGUST 2,1956 THE REPORTER ''Fastest Growing Weekly In Washtenaw County" 5 c PER COPX — $2 PER YE&R ■T=" Do Well |Vt Chicken Barbecue / After attending most of the ^ -ice cream socials throughout the county in"** recent weeks, candidates in the forthcoming primary election enjoyed a change of diet last Thursday, at the Manchester chicken barbecue. For at leasfohe of'them, the change was more than welcome. Ice cream and cake are wonder- v ful treats . . .but when ; taken in big helpings at all the y county's socials, the diet gets pretty rich. Nevertheless, the affairs did . afford the vote - seekers a grand .opportunity to get out and get ^acquainted with lots of people '■". . . and they gave the. voters a similar opportunity, to get .; acquainted with their candidates. _And the barbecues in Manchester ^.climaxed the calendar by bringing together more than 3,000 chicken-fanciers and quite a few office » seekers. It was impossible to make an accurate check" in the throng, "but it seemed likely that almost a complete roster of the county's primary election candidates made an appearance at the af-. fair. ^ Just a few are pictured here. Mrs. Beth Milford, candidate for state representative, gets valued cooking hints from Wendell Reinhart and Frank McCalla. Loaded down with chicken, the Marion family of Saline have no hands left for a handshake with Jucigs John Con_ih.JSo everyone says howdy. '•' Know Your Candidates Sheriff Erwin Klager enjoys a luscious drumstick and lines up a sure vote with brother Lutey Klager, co-chairman of the barbecue. YACKITY-YAK Loren Campbell, candidate for probate judge, passes out campaign cards and favors to Mr. ai>d Mrs. H. C. Ayres, of Manchester. We -want to offer belated best wishes to Gottlob Walker, Saline, who opened his' Saline Bakery last week. Gottlob is a baker of the old school . . . literally! Thirty - six years ago he started his own baking career with an apprenticeship in a Wurttemberg, Germany, bakery. In those days an apprenticeship in Gemany meant "three years' hard work with no pay", but it was a sound and sure way for a young man to learn his trade thoroughly, from the ground lip. And for examples of how well Gottlob,learned his trade, there were free doughnuts, with coffee, at the bakery's grand opening last week. Mighty delicious! Jim Warner and DonaM Ehle, rivals for the G. O. P. state representative nomination, deuionstntet_u_t the rivalry is a friendly affair. A 10*- year - old cat, which long ago adopted the Dresselhouse and Davidter store in Manchester as her home, last week gave birth to her 87th. kitten. Royal Davidter phoned in the happy news, but there was a regretful note in his voice. The^ old "girl had her latest litter of three kittens in a new home. The tickle lady has moved down the street to a rival store, and* the forsaken Davidter holds little hope that the new litter will measure up to .previous generations, which include numerous prominent citizens ainong the Manchester cat roster. A serious note for the Yak column this week, On another page of this issue we've published a letter to the editor which expresses considerable dissatisfactiop with the current plans for a rural activities building. We sympathize with many of the sincere sentiments expressed in the lettefc . ... but we'd like to set- the record straight on one point. We can •all be very -thankful to our County Farm Bureau leadership . . . and especially to Frank McCalla, W. F. B^ chairman at the time . . .. for the happy fact that there is a rural activities building in the works at all today. If it hadn't been for the alertness and aggressive work of this group, the fairground would in all probability- have gone to the City of Affn Arbor without so much as a crumb being .extended to. the rural interests involved." As it is, the whole rural building project grew out * 61 the satisfactory settlement of the fairgrounds issue, again through the hard work- of a group headed by Frank McCalla.- And awhile we're handing out compliments, here's another one which is long Overdue, we_think. Clarence Haarer, pf Saline, is closing has' store temporarily; and the closing announcement had hardly been published when we heard this sentiment Repeated time and again in the Saline area: "I don't know how we're going to get along without Haarer's!". "The meats you could get there! They were wonderful!" We hope that the way will soon be clear for Clarence to open up for good again He and his store will be missed very much every day till he does. And Vote Next •Mrs. Clarence Bristle, out on Zeeb Road, calls in to protest the many political posters which now appear on trees, poles, barns . . . and _mythirig else on which a sign can be fastened ^ ... through the county. She' is especially concerned about the use of trees for this purpose. "Those spikes can't do the trees any good," she protests, "And it's, certain there's never heen a poster as lovely as a treeP' * "We think she's right about the trees. But as for the posters we just don't know. Maybe they should be considered part of the fun and xazzle - dazzle of "the American politicking, much of i -which seems hard to explain, | but which still seems to turhj out pretty well. How do YOU, feel about it? . And Rodney Hutchinson, probate candidate, gains a 1_utnre vote .fronr'a young Manchester fceatuy. *.
