/ PHONE NEWS, ADS NO 3-4066 THE REPORTER VOLUME 11, NUMBER 5 — TIIURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1957. PORTER a Fastest Growing WeeMy In Washtenaw County 39 5c PER COPY — $2 PER YISAE ,^ wt- Rash Forgeries Keeps Police Hustling Through Week Ghest Fund Crew Assured Success At Kickoff Meet By Bess H. Tefft SALINE — "We know we're going to make our goal this year," Wilson Scott, chairman of the Saline Area Community Chest told workers who gathered last week at the Saline Hotel for a Kick-off dinner. The event ' preceded the community's drive for $6,987. Fifty area volunteers were present for the roast- beef dinner, given through the courtesy of Universal Die Cast of Saline. The Reverend Henry McKenzie delivered the invocation and following the dinner gave a short inspirational talk on the satisfaction found through giving. Martin Birdit, representing the Michigan United Fund, who was also present at the dinner, reminded the group that while Saline's share toward the whole UF budget was not large, still the community was participating in something big, and services, such as the Heart Associa-. tion, Leader Dog, U.S.O. and other groups provide, reflect back and are being used in our community. During an informal discussion Chairman Scott reminded once more that the current drive is a drive-for-all, and that donations should be large enough to cover the many local needs, The Red Cross, and the United Fund which includes 32 agencies. Give where you live! Again canvassers were urged to let the people who work outside of Saline know that they may ask that their donation made at work be returned to Saline. This makes sense, since it is the community we are helping—ijot the industry. . Many are still in doubt about the Area Blood Bank, conducted by the Red Cross. With each donation the canvasser will give a Red Cross membership card stamped — (thanks to the Girl Scouts)—with the words "Member of the Saline Area Blood Bank." This card assures that— no matter where you are when you need it—you may have free blood, drawn from om" Community Bank. The card will serve as a reminder that by calling Mrs. Edwin Hering or Mrs. Merritt Martin Sr. the needed blood will be provided. Mrs. Joe Camburn First To Finish Fund Drive Jab SALINE — First Community Chest canvasser to finish up the job was Mrs. Joe Camburn, of 320 N. Lewis who contacted all her "customers" Friday night and Saturday. Every one of them made a donation. "People were waiting for me," said Mrs. Camburn today. "They knew what I was there for. I felt they understood the purpose and importance of the drive, and I was satisfied that they gave generously." Several of the people canvassed by Mrs. Camburn had already made donations at their place of work, she said. These all gave a little more when Mrs. Camburn~*called. "As a matter of fact," she- remarked mischievously, "probably the hardest person I had to collect from was me!"

The Predmores' daughter is a hostess for American Airlines, and it was through that line that the trip was made possible. Council Acts On Permits SALINE — City Council Monday night approved building permits for construction amounting to $91,387, extended curfew hours for New Year's Eve, and approved a training course for for city disposal operators.

Highland Drive in Green Acres. Group Of Creditors Studies Take- Over Of Subdivision SALINE — A "combine ot creditors" of Dunrose Homes,, Inc., may take over Golden Acres with a view to finishing at least some of the homes, a spokesman from Killins Gravel Co., of Ann Arbor, said today. The subdivision, located on S. Ann Arbor Street and Willis Rd. here, has remained in a partially finished condition for many months, although buyers made down payments on their homes more than a year ago and were promised their houses "in a few months" at that time. The houses, built by Dunrose Homes Inc., listed to the ownership of Frank Vilardi, of Detroit, are in various stages of completion, ranging from basement-only, to nearly finished and lacking only furnaces, or plastering, or flooring. Outdoors, the subdivision is without sidewalk, curb and gut- Flu Bug Threat Waning, As Schools, Churches Report More Attending of the Kiwanis Club of SaUne. .A new member, the Rev. Armin Bizer, pastor of St. James E. & R. Church, Saline township, was inducted into the club by Gov. George Bowler, of the Michigan District. A special committee met following the regular meeting to complete plans for Charter Night, November 11, at Saline Elementary School. The meeting will open with dinner at 7 p.m., served by the High School junior class as one of the Kiwanis' "boys' and girls' work projects," according to President Bob Har- ison. "We hope they will make some money on it," said Harrison. "In fact, we expect them to." about rising flu statistics, the disease had "leveled" off and started down. Both doctors reported .their case loads had "stabilized", and school and churchattendance records began to climb this week. Apparently, the peak passed sometime during the week-end: school absences here last Friday- reached 25 percent, and the Friday -night, football game was canceled because the high school couldn't field a team. s "We would have been lucky to dress 16 boys," said assistant coach Howard Hill. "Usually we dress_ 30. And of the ones who were willing to play Friday, you only had to look at them to know that five or six of them ought to he home in bed." The game was a cancellation, to be played at the end of the season if team, standings warrant it. It was not a forfeit: "The boys said they would try nearly triple what it had been to play, rather than forfeit," I the week before. The attendance Church attendance was up again Sunday, although Sunday School attendance was still low. The congregation at the Federated Church here numbered; might be possible to finish some of the started houses this fall. ter, grading or blacktopping on streets. Sewer "and water mains "are in, and connections haye been made to some of the dwellings. Killins Gravel Co. is one of about 15 creditors interested in the problem, their spokesman said. The group "may meet in the near future to discuss the matter and find out where they will be able to stand on it." The group includes some firms from Ann Arbor,' Detroit, and Saline, mostly suppliers and service firms. "Prospects for "a meeting are very good," the^spokesman said, but explained that no action would be possible until a report is received from a Certified Public Accountant who is studying the books of the Dunrose Homes concern. The action, if taken, would not affect lots oh which no building has been done, he said but if the combine should form, it Hunting Complaints Also Plaguing Busy Policemen In Season's Early Days SALINE — Police officers here, after a hectic week that included two accidents, "dozens" of complaints about hunters, and a narcotics arrest, are still looking for forgers, auto-strippers, and a typewriter thief. Still sought is the man who strolled into the High School one night last week, inquired for the janitor, found and said "hello" to the janitor ... and then walked into the typing classroom and removed two nearly new Smith typewriters (npt insured). The thief, described as six feet tall, about 27 years old, weighing about 190 pounds, with dark curly hair, was not seen carrying out eittfer of the machines; it is surmised he remained in the building until after a Board of Education meeting ended about 11 p.m., police said. Forger Songht Police are also seeking the author of a series of forged checks which have been cashed here in the past two weeks. Two others, cashed a month ago, were turned over to Washtenaw County Sheriff's department at that time. Total: $80. The three most recent checks were forged on the Saline Savings Bank, according to Police officer Earl Kirby. Two of them, signed "Ed Bolz" and giving an address of 2735 Wagner Rd., were for--$5 each. A third was endorsed "William Curley." The Wagner Rd. address is a trailer park; no one there could identify "Ed Bolz". Police are investigating the stories of two 17-year-old boys who were picked up last week while they were offering auto WOIA BEGINS TESTS TODAY SAJUNE — tftadio Station WOIA will begin equipment tests today and expects to send a test signal at 1 a.m. tomorrow, according to David Aubert, engineer, Night owls may hear it at 1290 on the dial. Program tests will begin early in November. The station, which will broadcast on 1290 kilocycles, will be able to go into operation in a- bout two weeks, Aubert estimated, although its opening has been held up so far by a number of technical difficulties. Transmission lines were installed Monday, together with underground cable to the towers. Technical equipment is housed in "doghouses" . . . tower equipment boxes at the base of the towers. „■ A minor emergency occurred last week when one of the light units malfunctioned, blew a fuse, and put out the tower lights. "Our towers are 210 feet high," Aubert pointed out, "and planes go over at 500^feet here. In bad weather, they might go over lower. Besides that, pilots know where we are and look for our lights as a checkpoint. We had to get them lighted in a hurry." To speed up last minute engineering, WOIA is using the services this week of an extra .engineer from University of Michigan's FM station. "A new. station usually goes on the air on a Saturday," Aubert said. "WOIA-has fine equipment," he added, "the best Fve ever worked with. This is the ultimate in equipment." Wolfin, Hill On Slate For Saline Council Election November 5 Hill reported*. "But only two or three haven't had flu, and one of those had hives and one was just over the mumps." In the Huron League, the Chelsea-Dundee game was also canceled because of flu. The Hornets are scheduled to play Friday at Milan. "My high school band wasn't hit by flu," reported Art Katterjohn, "but there were 26 missing out of 80 in the Junior High Band." Three teachers were out last week; all have recovered. at St. Andrew's Catholic Church reached "overflow" proportions. At the Methodist Church, evening services were canceled until further notice and Sunday School classes were only half- filled, but morning services were "about average." Apparently the. schools were contending with a similar situation; Monday absences were re- "ported like this: "Elementary School ... 131 absent High school ... 62 absent _,. . "And 46 hunters." Some of the houses sold have not been started. Obligations to the City of Saline which would still obtain include a contract which provides that occupancy permits cannot be granted on the homes until improvements (sidewalk, curb and gutter,- blacktopping) are completed or money for the installation of such improvements is in escrow. Buyers of the homes, many of whom are commuting from Ann Arbor, have been "doubling, up" with relatives oi. paying rent oh motels and apartments. S__I_INE—Two men are candidates here for the two 2-year City Council terms on the Nov. 5 ballot. They are Everett Wolfin, incumbent and veteran of seven years as City Councilman; 'and Fred A.

At least three cars have been burglarized.

The "dozens" of calls included complaints on hunters shooting inside the city limits, shooting from moving cars, and letting Uvestock out. Several hunters had to be warned away from the Elementary School playground.
