A- YOUNG JOB-SEEKERS OFFERED USE OF PAPER Zoning Session Is Heated, Lively, Not Much Help By Peggy Flook SALINE —A public hearing . on the proposed new city zon- r ing plan, last week, answered t a few questions, strained some "tempers, and ended with noth pig settled on the controversial "commercial" zoning of East Michigan avenue. JFhe two-hour session was adjourned after one City Councilman announced that he was sitting with the audience instead of &t the Council table because he "could not accept" the plan proposed by the zoning commission and okayed recently by the Council. "I never agreed to this," said Councilman Frank Deede, regarding the zoning- plan which lists East Michigan as commercial all the way to the city limits on the north side, and as far as the Curtiss property on the south. "I was elected to represent 500 and some people and I think we ought to put this to a vote." Said Mayor Henry Leutheuser: "Council is not in session to vote at this time . . . there have been a number of Council meetings on this subject." Councilman . Deede: "That's why I'm not at the Council table. We're being delayed; let's get this settled." -.y'- >,, Mayor Leutheuser: "That's what we're trying- to do. Council will meet .the first Monday in April and the meeting is open to everybody. There will be a vote at that time. After that, I don't know." Most of the zoning plan stirred little or no opposition, although there were some queries about the industrial zoning on West Bennett street. Question from the audience: "If a house burns down in a "commercial" or "industrial zone," can the owner replace it with another house?" Answer, Stanton Roesch, city attorney: "Any presently existing non-conforming use of property can be continued indefinitely." Question: "What about lots | that have already been plotted for private dwellings?" Robert Moon, chairman of zoning group: "Land already plotted, as on Bennett and Clark streets, can be used as the owner sees fit." Said one Bennett street resident: "As a resident of West Bennett . . . and I think I can speak for my neighbors ... we do not object to industrial zoning; and we would consider use of the land for offices to be ideal. We just, didn't want the land zoned Multiple Dwelling for cheap apartment houses." Most of the opposition to the East Michigan avenue "commercial" zoning came irom residents of thd area who earlier had presented City Council with a petition to prevent it. John LaRue: "Can this zoning plan be submitted to a referendum of the voters instead of just to a public hearing?" Attorney Roesch: "The city charter provides that a petition by a relatively small number of residents may bring about a referendum on any ordinance, as was done in the matter of the parking meter™ordinance.'i LaRue: "I would hate to see the beauty of Michigan avenue lost, but because of the spread of, .commercial establishments, multiple dwellings spring up. "If that happened, I would not hesitate to sell to anyone for any use." Carl Curtiss: "I agree with others here that if "commercial'-' use takes over, the houses should be reduced in assessed valuation." Jim Gross: "I disagree. A home has a fixed value at a certain, age. Take my Dad's house] . , . too big for a young couple to pay operating costs for. An apartment house or a gas station next door wouldn't alter its [value by even 50 cents." Randall Coates: "There is an intangible to be considered . . . the pride people take in their home and in their street.

They say history repeats itself. Mrs. Clarence Girbach — I think they're nice for the younger girls, but I don't think I'd care to wear them myself. The younger girls seem to go for the new fashion trends more; maybe the rest di us are just a little bit old-fashioned. Mrs. George Glaze—I wouldn't wear one on a bet! I think they are a fad, not a fashion. Bob LaRose—I don't see how they could be any uglier. I think full skirts look the best on everyone. Deanne Malocha—15—1 like them.

Markie is reserved — though not shy—with strangers. .He doesn't talk often, but when he does, it makes sense. "Bye" he says, waving gently, "I'm going." "Will you come back again, Mark?" "Yes. After later." And down the street he goes, in his bright red snowsuit, soberly inspecting the world.

Vincent Madison, industrial development director of the Detroit Edison Co., made this comment at a recent public meeting in Saline, sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce. Madison went on to say that this loss, each year ,of the cream of our youth, is a tragic thing for a growing community such as Saline. ' Of course he is right!

But most of the opportunities offered the graduates are from out of town." Of last year's graduating class, two girls were offered jobs with the FBI; five went to the University personnel department; two became dental secretaries and assistants, Houghton said. "We .have a large demand for secretaries from Ann Arbor lawyers . .. the word seems to have got around that Saline girls do a good job." 1 "We get some chances to place boys in local industries," he added. But many men graduates go into the Army. The High School annually graduates between 45 and 60 young men and women; Opportunities for young people are present in Saline, but have not been fully explored, Houghton indicated. "I promised every student in the senior class that if he would do as I advised him, he could make a better living right here than anywhere else."
