Possibility of expanding the services of the Juvenile Home to include a study of the children in the Home by a person trained in child guidance was one of the items discussed at a meeting of the Juvenile Court Advisory Council, held - at the Home, April 4. The question was referred to the* community services committee of the council for further investigation. This committee will report back to the council at its next meeting. It was pointed out bjj Probate Judge John W. Conlin at the meeting that the purpose and use of the Home should be clearly defined before the new staff is hired. The Home is being operated at the present time without a permanent staff. Concept of the purpose of the Home can vary from a "shelter," "study center," "detention home," or combinations of these functions. • Use* of the home as a "study center" discussed at the meeting .would mean" that children brought before the court would be kept in the Home for"a pe^ riod long enough for the child guildance expert to study their problems and make recommendation to Probate Judge Conlin, if requested to do so by the judge. The "study center" as discussed was not regarded as a "treatment center." Judge Conlin stated that he hoped the Home could be utilized in such a way as to best serve the children of Washtenaw County. One advantage of the "study center" type is that the Home would probably be used to capacity .most of the time. A disadvantage is that a "study" type facility was estimated to cost $10 per day as against approximately $5 a day for a shelter or detention home. The "study" type home would not necessarily involve a large staff, but a different type of'staff, with someone capable" of conducting the study, possibly as the superintendent. Other items of business discussed "at the meeting included the applications of persons for positions in the Juvenile Court. ing from the judges which sig- j three adjudicators. These judges nines "an outstanding performance, superior in every respect." This year's contest is to be held at_.the large auditorium on the Michigan State University Campus in East Lansing on Saturday, April 13th, at 3:35 p.m. Recess Coming DEXTER — Dexter^. Area Schools will be dismissed at 3:30 p.m., April 18 for a short spring recess.; Classes will resume on April 24. High School seniors will leave May 28 for a five-day trip to New York City.

Return From-Capital MANCHESTER — David Knickerbocker and Jerry Kirk returned to Manchester on April 1 after a trip to Washington, D. C. They earned the expense-paid trip in a circulation, contest put on by The Detroit Free Press. Lester Nichols and Leon Trinkle are spending a two-week vacation at San Juan, Puerto Saline High School Band Mem- Rico, and Miami, Florida. bers! are the best of the college band directors, and have been obtained to judge all bands in the class or that particular day. They have at their disposal five divisions, any of which they can use, from the first division down to the fifth. Then the band will report to the Sight-Reading room where it will play two pieces which it has not seen before, and this also will be**judg- ed. " The final rating is an average of the four judges' ratings and" is then posted, and the comments of the judges are written down so that the band itself can benefit by them. The bands compete in these festivals, not against each other, but against set standards of performance, and therefore it is possible that no band'might get a first division, or that many might receive such a rating, depending on the quality of performance. The Saline band has been very fortunate in the past six years to receive these 11 first division ratings, and the community and the school can well be proud of these fine young musicians who- are bringing back such honors- to the city of Saline.
