NSK is the largest bearing company in Japan and under the terms of the acquisition will manufacture bearings to Hoover specifications, under the supervision of Hoover engineers now there.

Simmons said that this is also a major step in Hoover's long range expansion program. As to future plans he indicated that Hoover expects to manufacture in the- United States and certain foreign countries all of the types of bearings made available as a result of the NSK arrangement.

ON COMMUNITY CHEST GOOD By Bess Tefft The first worker to turn over donations for the Community Chest campaign was Mrs. Donald Geering who canvassed in the north east-section of Saline. She reported on the, 20th of October and completed her collection the 25th. Mrs, David Wahl was first to turn in a complete report, also from the north east section of town. Following close was Mrs. William Weed who reported from the farmer Hoyt school district. .

"We can count on these community volunteers" working Is Still Undecided By Peggy Flook Extended " area service carried the vote in a recent telephone company poll, but General Telephone company has not yet reached a decision in the matter, a representative said today. The postcard poll of Saline area telephone subscribers turned up 444 in favor of extended service, and 384 against it, according to Dale Clark, district manager for the company. ' The: poll was taken after a telephone company representative assured Chamber of Commerce members here that installation of. the service would depend on results of such a vote. The Chamber of Commerce has urged installation of extended service, at least to and from Ann Arbor: when they agree to. But they; r^xtended service to and from probably won't report until their Ypsilanti was not included in The Hornets blasted their way out of last place in the League this week by trouncing the Dundee Vikings 33-13. See story oh sports page: By Room Mothers The Dental Health committee of the Room Mothers' Association is offering the fifth clinic program for the application of sodium fluoride to the teeth of children. The program this year will be held during school hours and-during the present school term, in the month of November. Children now in Kindergarten, Second, Fifth, and Eighth grades are eligible for the treatments as these are the general ages when new teeth are coming into the mouth. However, since it has been emphasized that it is .important that fluor-. ide be applied to new teeth after eruption, regardless of age, application can be made more often. Therefore, children of other grades will be accepted upon request of the offices. The treatment consists of a series if four applications of a solution of sodium fluoride to the dry surface of each tooth, after a thorough cleansing by a dental hygienist. This treatment has been found by Public Health studies to reduce, on an average of 40%', the number of new cavities in a child's mouth. However, this has no effect on cavities already present and is not a substitute for regular visits to your own dentist. The low fee of $3.00 per child for the complete treatment series is possible only through this clinic arrangement. .BPW TOvLAUNCH . ■-"TtD^^lE^^OAiapAl^Nj..

Nobody budged an inch, even after they were told it was an air raid. Traffic went through the four corners exactly as usual; a customer went on trying on shoes; a grocer went on delivering packages; -a sign painter working behind a plate glass window never missed a stroke. One woman inquired, "Are we supposed to stay off the street while that thing blows?" Informed that is was an • unscheduled air raid warning and might mean enemy planes over head, she remarked, "Oh, that!" and went on about her business. Nobody in the bank even looked up. Children lounging on the street corner lost interest when no fire engine was forthcoming. Police and Civil Defense Director Lauren Wild discussed the problem afterward: "What do you think it would take to get people under cover?" The answer they came up with: a bad scare. An announcement that the country was at war, news that,. New York-had been flattened, or a tornado in view and within half a mile. Otherwise the alerts are of no value whatever . . . people simply don't believe them. Editor: There has been considerable publicity, self-made and otherwise, concerning the candidacy of some of themen running for the three offices of councilmen up for election next Tuesday. This* has been such that someone should speak out for Mr. Leutheuser and Mr. Kern\ The growth, development and orderly progress shown in Saline during Mr. Leutheuser's service as Mayor must be, the envy of other small communities. Streets widened, excavated, graveled, blacktopped or curb- and-guttered, 22.17 miles. Storm and sanitary sewer installed, 18,635 feet. New homes built, 151 at estimated costs of §2,068,550.00 Water lines installed; new elementary school built, city parking lot built. New subdivisions having sanitary and storm sewer and water, seven. Two new industries and two additions to existing industries. Eleven new commercial locations. Store front remodeling, approsimately 100 per cent. Over 200 acres of land annexed for schol and residential development. If Mr. Leutheuser and Mr. Kern are "incompetent" as stated by one candidate maybe we need more "incompe-^ tent" councilmen. .Zoning is certainly one of the most controversal issues in ail urban and many rural areas today. And understand- abl so. Every property owner is effected by zoning in a very sensitive spot, his wallet; Zoning effects property values as well as determining land uses. Honest men can certainly have honest differences of opinion on this question of zoining, although this so-called Citizen's Committee , (Continued on Page 10) -' Editor and residents of Saline: For the nine years that I have lived in Saline, I have watched it grow from a quiet little city to a city with many growing pains. I have always had a.keen interest in city-affairs; hot only because I have been in business here, ' but because I believe that all citizens, taxpayers or not," should take an interest in their city government and .voice there their, opinions on any or all city problems. 1 Until the lastrfew years] •T have been generally satisfied with the decisions made by the. council. In the past year they have made several decisions that I feel are not in the best interest of the majority if the citizens. The zoning ordinance is one issue I disagree in, I do not contend that the city of Saline does not need a zoning ordinance, but that the one passed recently by-the council does not- plan for- the future satisfactory. It did serve a purpose, to rezone one piece of land on East Michigan Ave., and I can't help but feel that there was a little "buck passing" there. Yes, we have a zotning ordinance, but I -believe it needs a lot more planning before it can be called a working ordinance. I feel.that the council did. not give the citizens a "fair shake" on.the sanitary sewer that is now Being built. I know that we need the sewer but feel that we did not have ; proper representation in our dealings with the Saline Area Schoil Board. There are many more small issues that I would be willing ti hring up should I be elec- --' ted to the council..The issues (Continued on Page 10)* though they liked Seattle very much, they are happy to be bapk in their, hometown .once again. ■-...,- ■ * * * * Bob and Shirley Klueter will visit Bob's relatives here Saturday and Sunday and then return to their present home in Columbus. * * * Speaking of Saline-Ann Arbor Rd., have you noticed how citified it looks out at Charlie Schultz's? With the installation of some new fire hydrants on;the. place,: (one of them in Schultz's barnyard and another in the middle of a corn field) the cows look rther puzzled and the dogs of the neighborhood are probably certain- all the latest of modern conveniences have been installed just for them. But the truth is the hydrants job is done. Several workers had unofficially . reported a better response than in previous years. ~- Captains, chosen from the former, school districts that make up the Saline Area "are as follows: Mrs. Elmer Diuble, Girbach district; Mrs. Pearl Wild, Bridgewater; Mrs. Emerson Haeussler, Rentchler; Mrs. Kuyda and Mrs?
