"TAG DAYS" IN SALINE MOVED MERCHANDISE SALINE — Red Tag- Days were a big success, local merchants reported this week. With estimates ranging from "good" to "tremendous", they puzzled over the fact that most of the business rush occurred on Thursday and Saturday; Friday seemed to have got lost in the scuffle somewhere; A grocer reported the biggest week-end since he started in business here; a department store was so swamped, that clerks couldn't get to the phone "had a good week-end" on Friday morning, before the weekend even arrived. One drug store said business was good (on Thursday and Saturday) but that customers weren't buying many of the tagged items on special sale . . . they were buying other merchandise instead. Another drug store, with red tags on jewelry, was startled to observe that the jewelry was selling at a good rate ... to men. Most- merchants agreed that future special sales should be held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday instead of only Friday and Saturday as in the past. BIG PAYOFF! SALINE — Local residents wacthed with bated breath last week while a pair of honey- mooners from Woodside Trailer Camp competed on "The Big Payoff" a nationally broadcast television program, for a mink * coat. ■The newlyweds are William and Geraldine Zandi, University of Michigan students who. moved ta Woodside this week. He is an Ann Arbor printer. No word yet on the winnings! Civic Leaders Suggest Less Emphasis On Bake Sales By Clubs SALINE—Local women who, like their bakery this week issued a concerted * plan to Saline's civic organizations to raise funds some other way than through bake sales. Said one: "These constant bake sales, Saturday after Saturday, must cut deeply into Walker's Bakery business. We cannot afford to injure any merchant's business, especially one who showed enough faith in the community to make a large investment to bring a business here." r Said another: "Gottlob Walker's baked goods are really good; many times it's been a godsend to me "to he; afelettb^gb* "in and get just the right thing for dinner. We wouldn't want to lose him!" All of them felt that the continuous stream of community bake sales, on a major downtown corner on a business day, were unfair competition to place upon a merchant. Meanwhile, Chamber of Commerce merchants voiced a growing concern with the problem and promised to bring it up at the'next Chamber meeting Monday. "We'd rather support the civic organizations almost any other way," said one businessman. Among the women troubled by the competitive bake sales were: Mrs. Paul Reid: "A lot of us have worried about it. I will bring it up at the next- meeting of the High School Room Mothers; and my two daughters can take it up with the Student Council at school. Surely some other way can be found to raise funds." Mrs. James Beal: "I don't want to discourage these organizations as they do a fine community service;.but if they'd use their ingenuity and think up a different type of project it Cancer Fund Drive Now In Full Swing SATJNE — Local volunteers are receiving contributions at both Saline banks this week for the annual fund drive of the Washtenaw County Cancer Society. Represented in the Saline area by Mrs. Everett Wolfin and Mrs.. Meredith Bixby, the Society has placed representatives in the banks last week and this week to fill the canisters and explain the services, available this year for thefirst time in Saline, provided by the Society. QonWbutioris ymayyhe made Wednesday evening at the Citizens Bank, all d&y Friday and Friday evening jit Saline" Savings Bank, and Saturday; at both banks,. Contributions at the banks last .week were "very j gqod^" Mrej-#c4_3n;^£itf^ " yy ' -: A "dressings division" of the Saline unit, headed by Mrs. Charles Kern, Mrs. Edwin Hering, and Mrs."-Charles Fink, will provide dressings in Saline for cancer patients this year, a service that has not been available here before. *■ Mrs. Leo Jensen, chairman of the education committee for the Saline area, will have films and material available for groups who wish to use them in programs during the coming year. William Crim is a member of the-County Advisory Council of the Society. Volunteers working in -the banks ^include-Mrs. ^3ruce Parsons, Mrs. Sam Lambarth; Mrs. Vern Osterhout,. Mrs; Mary Spindler, Mrs. Anna Mann, Mrs. Cecil' Davenport, .Mrs. Everett Esehr andiMrsir)Friedf Arend.".; -* would be better. There ought to be a central calendar of bake sales so they don't occur too often." Mrs. Everett Esch: "There are lots of other ways to raise money. I would as soon donate the money directly as struggle with a bake sale; I read in the paper that an Ann Arbor organization made a lot of money selling tooth brushes, for instance. There are so many ways that could serve instead of the bake sale, but of course most of them take more work." (Mrs. Esch instituted the Record Hop for polio as a fund raising measure. It was extremely successful.) . ... .-«s5-.---.,/i__r.i_'.iIj;. ..-" - ¥--#-".-*»*«__SeS*-.'' Mrs. Robert Starling: "It isn't really fair as long as you want a bakery here. It does seem as if some other way could be found; your mixed card parties go over good. I think the school could also have candy sales." Mrs. Robert Merchant: "I would be all for trying to cut down on bake sales and I will mention it at the Band Parents executive board meeting. I just went through one, and I'd rather give $2 to any group than do it again. But the school carnival was a success and lots of fun; the Cub Scouts' penny carnival is always well received; and I recently took part in a Nursery School card party that did very well." Mrs. Edwin Hering: "I agree there is a problem here. Surely card parties would be a .better idea; in any case I feel that something should be done. The bakery is a definite asset to the community." Mrs. Everett Wolfin: "I'm sure. something could be done so that it didn't hurt our business people; It just hit me last week . . . and I thought 'well, gee whiz, this isn't right!' I "remember, years ago we didn't have a bakery, we didn't have a lot of things and needed them badly. We're very fortunate to Have a nice bakery in town and we should patronize it. If we didn|t have it, people would miss it terribly."
