City to Annex 211-Acre Tract North of Saline Another step in the development of a 211-acre tract north of town was taken last week when a petition for annexation signed by Charles and Mettie Schultz and the Saline Area School district, was accepted by City Council. A similar petition to Pittsfield township has been passed by the township. Lodi township is expected to meet this week on the annexation. The land involved comprises 114 acres of the Schultz prop erty east of Saline-Ann Arbor Rd. and 97 acres of adjacent School District land. The' annexation is exjected to clear the way to building 385 homes on the land. ' -. The annexation move follow-' ed the letting of contracts for sewer and water line construction to the area. The Roeseh sewer will also open up large tracts of land to the west and north of the city for residential and industrial development. Both sewer and water lines are under construction. The contract, signed six weeks ago by the Schultzes, the city of Saline, and the School District, specified that its terms would also apply to any person or firm to whom the Schultzes might later sell the property. It contained a proviso allowing such persons to hook as many as 385 new homes to the sewer and water lines. The annexation is expected Jo be completed in about a week. *><*'*'***'*i***i**t*#*#soT*^o*****^#^**ssr<oT***or** Busy Belles Winners At State 4-H Show Members of the Busy Belle 4-H Club rang'all sorts of bells last week at the State 4-H Show in Lansing: — Rosemary Payeur and Janice Harwood gave food demonstrations and earned blue ribbons.'

Name Address Phone ., Occupation Age Ht. Wt Just in case there's anyone around (visitor from Sa- skachewan or Rangoon, perhaps) who doesn't know it already, next Wednesday begins the four-day celebration that is formally referred to as Saline Community Fair . . . but which bulks large in the minds of young and old alike in this neighborhood as just: THE FAIR. Next week's issue and the issue after that will be pretty much made up of the excitement, confusion, and all-round /. .^ood-fun^ that makes THE FAIR . . . covered here in words and pictures. Watch also for another big UDC feature-salute page, this one on (what else?) THE FAIR. FIREMEN SAVE HOUSE AFTER 3-HOUR FIGHT Members of Saline Volunteer Fire department, together with a crew from Pittsfield township, fought a blaze at the George Klager home, on Saline- Ann Arbor road at Pleasant Lake Rd., for three hours Monday evening. The fire, which started in a utility room upstairs in the brick house, was brought under control early and loss was limited to contents of an upstairs apartment on the north side of the house. Furniture and clothing in a downstairs apartment were water damaged, and the roof was badly burned; but there was no damage to the one-story south side of the house. Three Saline fire trucks and two trucks from Pittsfield township were at the scene, slowing heavy Labor Day traffic on Saline-Ann Arbor road from 6 to 9 p. m. * The one-story portion of the house is occupied by Klager. The two apartments in the two- story side are rented. No cause for the fire could be determined, firemen said. Building Permits Total $10,500 Building permits totaling $10,- 500 were issued by City Council Tuesday night. They included $10,000 permit to L. Z. Still, to complete the building between the postoffice and the Still's Hotel; $250 to Harold Brown, of 257 S. Ann Arbor, for remodeling; and $250 to Dean Scott, 302 N. Ann Arbor, for remodeling. In other action, Council determined that the present Universal Die plant and the addition under construction are not in violation of the new zoning ordinance No. 146, and that parking facilities across <the road from the plant are in accordance "with the ordinance. New school clothes for the school buses too ... or at least a new paint job, administered here by Tony Sehild, with Bill Guthrie on the spray gun, and school transportation manager Dwight Reynolds; supervising. The paint-job was a change, in'wording on the back door of each bus;;the sign now reads, "Stop on Signal when bus stops." Flashers on the buses are now red, front and back, the whole alteration to comply with the state law, in effect Sept. 13, that requires all cars to stop when the school bus stops, no matter which direction the cars approach from. YACKITY-YAK Teachers Meet To Map Tactics As Mothers Just Relax Saline Area Schools opened Wednesday with enrollment up to more than 1,300, roughly the increase expected and accounted for in statistics on which the building program is based. Total student load at the Elementary School had climbed to 801 (with about 25 absent) as compared with 783 last year. The figure included 117 kindergarteners. Statistics were still fluid, principal Marian Barclay said, as some of the absentees may have moved away. High School enrollment had jumped to about 500, as against 452 last year, but some students had not yet reported in due to illness, attendance at the State Fa}r, or "long" vacations. """Teachers met at both High Grandma and Grandpa E. J. Muir will leave Thursday for Ames, Iowa, to visit the new (and first) grandchild, Kevin James Brinks, born Sunday morning early. "He looks like me." says Bill. The infant is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Brinks (she's the Muir's daughter). * « * Rotary Thursday will see a sound and color film on the story of the American Cup yach ting races (try-outs are currently being held off Long Island). Basil Badour is program chairman. Next week, Fair week, Art Heininger is program" chairman and Rotary will be host to all the judges of the Saline Fair. * * * Nina Arend's son and family, from Lansing, stopped here for a visit last week-end on their return from the Luther League International Convention at Cor nell. The visitors were Mr. and Mrs. Jack Arend, whose children, Anne and Lewis, were delegates at the convention. They reported that Michigan ranked third among the states in the number of delegates present. Mr. Clarence Sevey was surprised by a fine birthday dinner ,on Aug. 20. Also attending were his daughter and family, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Younce of Ypsilanti. Lef s face it, Saline has bees in its bonnet. The swarm congregated on the City Hall window ledge may or may not be the same swarm that caused consternation the week before by swarming atop the Saline Savings Bank. So far nobody has figured out how yon get rid of them except, as one city official' suggested, "Wait for them to go away." Said a passer-by: "I figure the taxes., are coming in good and the bees are .after the sugar." Above, beekeeper Elmer Glatx, of Braun Rd., points out the buzzy. problem to police officer Kirby. They were his bees, Glatz said . . .'must have followed him when he came in to City Hall on business. - OUR READERS WON'T WAIT When they want to read ads, they want to read ads, and they want to read them NOW! Proof of this particular pudding occurred just today when a customer marched into the Reporter office and insisted on paying as full price for one-half of a paper. We only had Y2 a j>aper at that point'because only the "first run" had been printed; the other four pages were still as bare as a brand new iaby. We pointed out this defect to our anxious reader but he was not concerned. The classified page was there; that was what he had come for; that was what he bought. He refused to take his seven cents back, and departed, happily perusing classified ads. »^^^##^»^^^^#>#^»#^#^#^^##^#^##^j'i Record Player, Parking Meter Recovered Here A record player, missing since June, from a residence on W. Michigan avenue, and a meter taken in June from the city parking lot, have been recovered by police here after talking with a 14-year-old Saline boy who was arrested last week in connection with a series of larcenies throughout the city. The boy was held overnight at the County Juvenile Home and then released in the custody of his mother. The record player was recovered in "usable" condition, School and the .Elementary school in orientation programs Tuesday. Many of the teachers at both school had reported in and started work several days previous. Program at the Elementary School Tuesday included a classroom tour for teachers, assorted meetings, and lunch. On Wednesday afternoon, an audiovisual workshop was conducted for teachers by Dan Moore, of the University of Michigan audio-visual department. Classes in the Elementary School are running about 30 or 35 students to a teacher, Mrs. Barclay said. , "We don't like it, "but we can't avoid it, with the increased student load." School hours are the same as last year with the exception of the Elementary School lunch period, which has been staggered into three sections running from 11:30 a.m] to 1:30 p.m. Safety Director Helen Starling, who directs traffic at the corner of Harris street and E. Michigan avenue today urged drivers to be especially alert during the noon period. Mrs. Starling walks with kindergarten children from the school to the E. Michigan avenue corner; but .older .Elementary .School children will also be crossing, he pointed out. 'laytimes at the Elementary School have been rearranged so that only one grade group will be on the playground at any one time, Mrs. Barclay said. Kindergarten children will report to school at 8:50 a,m. Monday morning. Because of the Fair, no afternoon sessions of Kindergarten will be held Wednesday, Thursday,, or Friday of next week; school busses must take the High School students home on those days and would not be able to pick up kindergarteners in time for class, Mrs. Barclay said. police said, but the parking^gr^es.
