Saline Girl Weds Farmington Man In Saturday Rites SALINE. — Miss Byrnece Si monton of Saline, and Thaeo- phil Muhling, of Farmington, were married in an afternoon ceremony at the home of the bride's parents, on May 4. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Merle Simonton, 6099 Ann Arbor-Saline Rd., and the groom is the son of Mr. Martin Muhling and the late Mrs. Muhling, of Farmington. Rev. T. Burt Evans, of Assembly of God Church, Ann Arbor, -officiated , at the double ring ceremony before an arch banked with green leaves and white flowers."

Parents who know it's inevitable always feel the fiM is running too fast. Wishing doesn't alter facts, though, and we know it! Initial planning for a proposed High School to meet these enrollments has also been unfolding in recent months. The School Board visited a school near Battle Creek and one in Mt. Pleasant. All agreed that the suburban Springfield School, built for 600 pupils, was far superior in design, in use of materials, and utilization of space. The architect for that sehool was Guida Binda and his services were subsequently obtained by the Board for planning a similar structure here. The Elementary Room mothers also made a trip to Springfield. Their chairman, Mrs. Harold Frey, reports that the group was very favorably impressed with the building which "was not expensively built, yet not cheaply built either." Later the High School teachers went to see the school and they too, were enthusiastic about the building. No space was wasted, one commented, and clever touches _— not expensive, but useful ones—were in evidence everywhere. No one would think of going to a blacksmith today to have a tooth pulled, and most people seek medical advice- for a persistent pain. Yet it's amazing butcher, or baker, or boiler maker for advice on education and schools. The' Advisory Council felt that the teachers who have been trained for their job, and who are in daily touch with our children and their needs, 4were the logical sources of information and advice. Certainly we laymen should take advantage of their knowledge. I talked to Mrs*. Bernice McCoy who has directed the first year of special education "here. Believing that every young person has a right to the best education of which he is capable, Mrs. McCoy has helped eight boys and girls make up an entire grade's work in the Opportunity Room. Ten others have also profited. "I'm proud," she said, "That Saline Area Schools have provided the Opportunity Room to help our junior high boys and girls find needed help to achieve the most from their school experiences." As numbers increase, the need for this individual teaching will also grow. Next I talked to Dwight Reynolds who teaches the shop courses. He had specific suggestions for improving-the effectiveness of the shop program. The present shop is so occupied since it is shared by Science classes too that there is no room for a Senior high group. "I feel the older .boys who are planning to go into shop work after graduation need a basic course to acquaint them with tools and machines. We wouldn't expect to turn out finished ma chinists," he said. "But a solid introduction to tools will make them feel more confident when how many will turn to the they enter a factory and are MANCHESTER PLANS MADE FOR MEMPHIS MAYOR'S WELCOME MANCHESTER — Clair Fier- Double A Products, and an in- stine, mayor of Memphis, who,speetion of the village's new will be the'visiting mayor in (sewage disposal plant. and to Kiwanis projects such as ^ WM""^ was the ™£ .i.-_ tr_n..iTr/-'_-_ -»._i r<v>».r.+»v,o_. oearer. the Hallowe'en and Christmas parties.

Mrs. Kirk Returns From Hospital MANCHESTER — Mrs. Marvin Kirk returned from a short stay at Mercy Hospital, Jackson, on May 2. She entered the hospital on April 26. Because of her absence from home, the Iron Creek Farm Bureau, scheduled to meet with Mr. and Mrs. Kirk on May 2, met at the home'of Mr. and Mrs. WiUiam Palmer. The June 6 meeting of the Farm Bureau- will be held at thgjiome of Mr. and Mrs. Kirk, home in Farmington. At the reception following the ceremony, Miss Gabriel Muhling, sister of the groom, cut the cake. Punch was served.by Miss Kay Evans, of Ann Arbor: Miss Eleanor Metzger, of Aim Arbor kept the guest^book, and gifts were in charge of Miss Sharron'Rudduck, of Milan. The bride is a graduate of Roosevelt High School, Ypsilanti; and the groom was graduated from Farmington High School. He is employed by his father in Farmington. Following a two-week's trip to Florida, the couple will be at Road Commission Reports On Saturday Meet ANN ARBOR — Washtenaw County Road Commission at its meeting last Saturday took bids on a three-quarter yard shovel, which will cost approximately $25,000. Bids were also taken for placing gravel on Augusta and York Townships. These bids will be awarded this week. Cost- will be met by the townships. A total of six bids were received for furnishing and putting on asphalt on 75 miles of blacktop in various parts of the c'ounty. A new* top has to be applied to this type of road every four years. Bids from three persons were received for mowing the roadsides in 16 townships. The group signed an agreement with Bridgewater Township for 300 yards of gravel for township roads and the application of chloride in front of houses in the township. Cost was $4,400. IS The group has adjusted the cost of culvert pipe sold to property ownersyfrom $1.54 a foot, because of an increase in the cost to the Road Commission. AIR-GROUND FIRE ALARM NOT SO HOT MANCHESTER—Last week brought another "first" for the Manchester'fire crew. For the first time in the Dutch fire-eaters' honorable history, the crew received a fire alarm from an airplaine. It sounds like a wonderful modern-day development . . . but in actual practice it didn't work out so well. . On Wednesday, the pilot of a plane flying in the area of southwest Washtenaw spotted a fire blazing along the N. Y. C. railroad tracks, well to the west of Manchester. The pilot radioed the alarm to the Conservation Department* . . . which in turn relayed it to the Manchester crew. And" that started quite a "wild goose chase." The crew raced to the spot indicated . . . but found no fire. They traveled around the section awhile, "bird-dogging" for the blaze . . . but found no fire. ' They phoned in for further instructions and finally were directed to.the fire. Evidently the pilot, or the Conservation Department, or both, had mixed their signals in giving the -location of the blaze. As Crew Captain Royal Da- vidter^puts it: "It* took us twice as long to find the fire as it did to put it out." 1 put to work on a machine." His' ideal set-up would include three rooms, one for wood and metal work, one an automotive shop for older students, and the other a mechanical_drawing room where blueprint reading might be taught to both boys and girls. Technical plant offices appreciate this background in people they hire. "And girls are going to be planning and building homes, too," he said. "Reading blue-prints will come in handy." „ George Bonich, science teacher, explained to me that Saline's science curriculum is patterned after the Dearborn program, the result of extensive research. It consists of three required and three elective science courses. A semester of biology, chemistry and physics make up both the required and elective series. Of general value to all students, the program also meets College preparatory requirements and aids specifically those-students who will become routine technicians in industry after high school. . ■ In the proposed new High School, projected enrollments call for a. minimum of three science rooms, possibly four. These four would include a chemistry room, a physics room, and two combination general science and biology rooms. At least 16 science classes will be operating by 1956. To implement these courses successfully, full equipment would be needed*; such specific things as hot and cold Avater on lab tables, AC and DC outlets, gas, storage room 'and space for materials, to mention only a few. "I'll add one thing," Bonich said. "If we don't provide adequately for the education of our children in the sciences and mathematics, we need hire only one instructor — to teach the Russian language." I visited with Alton Ealy last and talked about the Ag. courses. Needed are a classroom, with reference library, a separ--. ate lab for testing soils, and" milk, and a shop area large- enough to hold tractors and. equipment for cleaning, ovec-. hauling arid painting. "Your present quarters seem* good," I said. He agreed that they are the best in the school and consequently they could be turned to immediate use for class space and shop area In Junior High— which the present building would become. "What could you do with actual land acreage?" I asked him. He brightened with enthusiasm. "The possibilities for a land laboratory 'are endless!" he said. Use of this department could continue twelve months of the year, day and night, as adult farmer classes and summer projects supplement the regular school program which has about 50 boys enrolled at the present time. The increasing use in recent years of a High School as a Community Center, and the heightened interest . in Adult and Continuing Education, seems a wonderful development, and one with infinite value to the area. The community that builds a functional school and then keeps it filled with busy, < learning human beings of all ages, is a wise one: Several other teachers will discuss their departments on Thursday evening, May 9th at 8:30 in the Elementary* School, Sponsored by the Advisory Council, the meeting is open to the public. Speaking will be Mrs. Mildred Haswell pn English needs, Arthur Katterjohn, on music, Howard Hill, on the commercial department, William Bailey on physical" education, Airs. Kathleen Nass for art, and .Evelyn Campbell on library I facilities.
