The Saline Reporter VOLUME 12, Number 8, Wednesday, November 19, 1958 First With AlMthe Local News V 7c PER COPY—$3 PER YEAR POST OFFICE COMPLETES MOVE TO NEW SITE Chest Nears Goal Community Chest, collections this week more than doubled, and the present total is only about $1400 short of the goal, drive chairman Wilson Scott announced today. The new total, $6467.16, was tallied after collection reports poured in from all quarters during the week. It is $3542 more than last week's report of $2925. "I am now sure that we are going to make our quota," Scott said today, "and we may even go over the top, although we won't know for quite a while." Saline's final reports, from Detroit Edison, the Ypsilanti Ford plant, and the Ypsilanti State hospital, customarily arrive well after the first of the year, and may wait until March. The 1958 total is higher by $946 than last year's, the increase representing the addition of requests for Girl Scouts and the summer recreation baseball program. The baseball item, previously raised by independent solicitation, will obviate the need for further requests for funds next summer. Pledges known to be forthcoming are expected to complete the quota, Scott said. "Christmas Plans Nearly Complete, C. of C. Announces Plans are nearly complete for the five-week Chamber of Commerce Christmas promotion in Saline, members announced this week. The program opens Nov. 17 with the placing of "Santa's Mailbox" on the main corner, and closes Dec. 20 with a prize drawing. In between are all kinds of activities designed to entertain children and give their parents a chance to shop in an atmosphere of cheer and convenience. Youngsters may mail their letters to Santa Claus in the brightly-colored mailbox constructed last year by local merchants, and all letters will be answered. Local civic organizations cooperate in the letter- answering. . Christmas decorations will be put up in the city Nov. 29 and will include a new star, purchased this year, as well as the spectacular four-foot candy canes decorations built and painted last year by the organization. Window Shoppers Day, when numbers located in newspapers may be turned in for gifts at local stores, is scheduled Dec. 6; and on Dec. 13, Kiwanians will present a two-hour cartoon show for children at the High School while parents shop. The cartoon show is a separate project from the regular weekly Kiwanis movies, which will continue without interruption. The cartoons are shown in the afternoon. The prize drawing will be held at 4 p.m. Dec. 20, and prizes this year will be two $25 savings bonds, one for a boy and one for a girl. Meanwhile, Santa Claus will visit the downtown Saline area; including the stores of all Chamber of Commerce members, every Saturday afternoon during the promotion period, to collect the letters from his mailbox" and talk with children. The Indian corn which Billy Tefft has displayed in the window of the1 Reporter office is drawing attention and several ears were sold shortly after it was put on display. Deep in rehearsals, costume preparation, and collection of props, the cast of the High School play "Clementine" here polishes up lines for the presentation Thursday and Friday nights at the High School auditorium. Alice Sheehan plays the title role in the comedy story of a tomboy who turns into-a lady, under some pressure.

For some of'tlje fellas hunting was real good and they were back by Monday morning with their bucks. Included in this bunch were Phil Kellogg and Art Meharg who each came back with spike- horns and Joe Meharg who bagged a nice 10-pointer and Russell Wright with an 8-point- er. The men in this party hunted about halfway between Alpena and Rogers City, which apparently is a pretty good spot. Two of the deer were bagged, the morning of the opening day and the other two were shot Sunday morning. Another satisfied hunter is Maurice Levleit who was hunting with Roy Lane of Britton and Henry Mason of Ypsilanti. Maurice shot his 2-point buck at 2 p.m. On Saturday near Stan- dish. The Harrison vicinity seems to be a favorite spot for some of the Saline hunters. For Dory Graf it was a likely spot since he was back with his buck on Monday. The other fellows in his party weren't quite so lucky, however. Dory's son, Jack, Howard "Red" Feeman and Donnie Steiner came back home with their tags still in their pockets. Erwin Schneider hunted near Harrison too, but with no luck. Joe Chantelois and his son, Joey, hunted over the weekend near the.Lumberman's Memorial at Glennie. They came back with only a bushel basket full of wet hunting togs. This was young Joey's first try at the game, but he is far from dis- Band Group Meets Band Parents Club meets tonight to discuss projects for the next year.

The Chantelois.' and their hunting partners, Hairy Shadley and his two sons, Jerry and Dick, plan to try their luck again over Thanksgiving weekend. Last Thursday the "Boise Blanc Island Hunters" set out for their hunting grounds on, naturally, Boise Blanc Island. Included- in the group are E. J. Beasley, Ray Hunt, Milt Hartman, Mike Bredernitz, Ted Ormsby and Bob Merchant. Bob Tefft and Dr. Otto En- gelke, county health officer, are hunting near Crystal Falls in the upper peninsula. Doug Hoeft and Jack Bennett hunted a bit closer to home over the weekend. They tried their luck at the Oak Grove game area and got nothing but wet- Another bunch of Saline hunters are located at Vanderbilt where they have hunting territory. Ed Schmid and Ralph Uphaus drove up together last Wednesday and others at this location are Ted Braun, Orren Corl, Harry Cline, Martin Blair and Milton Finkbeiner, all of Saline, and Orville Finkbeiner Maybe Deer Are Fond Of Apple Cores Dr. John Larder's recurrent luck at deer-hunting probably has something to do with the contents of his pockets, his friends suggested this .week, after he nailed a three-point buck on the second day of hunting season. Larder, hunting near Indian River, brought down a three- point buck Saturday at almost the same place and the same time he shot last year's two- pointer. This repetition, imply nimrods who have hunted with him, occurs because the deer follow a trail of apple cores and wind up in Dr. Larder's sights. His menu while hunting in-the field: apples and popcorn balls, nutricious enough to last for days if he should get lost in the woods. The Larder party this year included Dell Hoffman and Harold Braun, of -Saline and Dr. Norm Wilner, Of Dexter. of Ann Arbor. Four members of the Robison family are off to the woods. Mike Robison, who lives on Macon Rd., and his two sons, Ellsworth of Tecumseh, and Stan of' Ypsilanti, are hunting this side of the Straits at Roscommon. Another son of Mike's, Ted Robison, is with a party hunting near Waters. Ted's party includes Lewis Crittenden and Herman Finkbeiner. And, lo and- behold, some of Xmas Savings Total $41,000 Christmas" shopping should begin on a lavish scale this week as Christmas Club savings checks are mailed out by both banks. The total is more than $41,000. Saline Savings Bank, whose savings program closed Saturday, will mail out checks week after next, mostly to Saline area residents, and adding up to $23,980.70.- - Christmas savings at the Citizens Bank totalled $17,170.00, the bank reported. Checks were the local deerslayers even took t mailed to Christmas Club mem' their wives along on their hunt-' bers Monday. ing trip. Norman Raus, sr., took the Mrs. with him to fill the occupation of chief cook and bottle washer, it's most likely. Walt Armbruster and "his wife, and Harold and Bernice Armbruster and their son, Butch, and LaVerne Armbruster are all hunting in the Frederic area. It'll be most interesting to see who bags the deer in this group. And what are the wives of all these hunters up to while their husbands are trying out their hunting skills? Well, most of them are busy keeping the houses running in their normal manner, nursing youngsters with runny noses, perhaps having a night out with the girls while"Pop" is away. Director Lauds Cast and Crew "Both the east and the technical crews have done an extremely fine job dh the Senior Play this year," Senior play director Mildred Haswell said Tuesday. "I especially want to commend the technical crews, who have mixed enjoyment with responsibility to -turn out a much better production than usual" Included on the staging and technical committees for. the play, "Clementine" are: Large properties, Virgil May- ville, Lloyd Guenther, Bill Bracey, Bill Wiedmayer; stage committee, Martin Cantrell, Bill Austin, Jim Reid, Joe Riggs, Jim Bohnett; small props, Yvonne Bernard, Joan Wiebusch, Karen Girbach; sound-effects, Jan Lo- see, Dieter Kragl, Virgil May- ville.

Transfer Made In One Night- Locks Bring Woe by Peggy Flook 4 The monumental task of moving an entire postoffice — mail and all — from one location to another was accomplished overnight, but the 582 new lockboxes threw the whole city into confusion. Working until 2 a.m. Saturday morning, postoffice personnel transferred everything from stamp drawers to money order blanks without mislaying so much as a postcard. They also Gets Clean Away— Jgith Two Bathtubs A thief who broke into an unoccupied house on Mark Hannah Court Thursday night got clean away with his loot, police indicated this week. He departed with two bathtubs and some lengths of pipe. The only clue left behind was some. blood,"" apparently "sheet when the prowler injured himself while breaking a window to get in. The break-in is one of a number of such thefts reported in the area, police said. CD ALERT A Civil Dfense alert and siren test will be held about 2 p.m. Wednesday, and a similar test will be conducted on the third Wednesday of each month, Civil Defense officials have announced/ Jack Bennett has been elected Zone Director by the Saline Bowlers. He replaces Silas Nord who has recently resigned from the office. Two Sentenced For Theft Two local young men were sentenced this week in Municipal Court in Ann Arbor after they pleaded guilty to a theft charge; and a third will appear for a hearing Dec. 4. Donald F. Scott, 19, of 1765 Willow Rd., and William Odum, 18, of 755 Mooreville Rd., were sentenced to six months probation^ fines of $20 each, and ordered to make full restitution for the items they admitted taking. Both had their driver's licenses rescinded and were instructed by the court not to see each other. A third young man, arrested with Scott and Odum for taking 16 sacks of potatoes from Milan Country Market, was Dale Schultz, 18, of 1866 Samer^Rd. He has filed bond for his Dec- 4 appearance. Sheriff's deputies said the down by Tuesday afternoon to a three also admitted taking a number of other items, including about 20 pumpkins from a Saline area farm, and gasoline from a number of farms. The order to make restitution included all the items. At the same time, two 15- year-old Saline girls were arrested on charges of shoplifting, and turned over to juvenile authorities. Police said the girls, in signed statements, admitted taking clothing from Saline and Ann Arbor stores in a series of thefts that have continued since last summer. Union Thanksgiving Service Planned The new pastor at St. Paul's Evangelical and. Reformed Church, the Rev. Alfred P. Hardt, will deliver the sermon at the traditional Union Thanksgiving Service in Saline this year. Special music will be presented by the Chancel Choir of the Federated Presbyterian and Baptist churches under the direction of Harold Brown, with Mrs. Brown as organist. The service will begin at 9:30 o'clock on Thanksgiving morning in the Federated Church Sanctuary, according to the host pastor, the Rev. Henry McKenzie. Also participating in the Worship Service will be the Rev. Robert Richards, pastor of the Saline Methodist Church. The public is invited. moved two sacks of parcel post material and the contents of 100 boxes. In the process, they found 45 cents in coins and two ("delayed," said Mrs. O'Neill) Christmas greeting cards, the only postoffice business that had contrived to get lost behind the woodwork in the 20 years the postoffice was located at the old site on S. Ann Arbor street. _. The postoffice closed in the old site at 5:30 p.m. Friday, although an official postoffice department mover, Leonard Pulaski, of Dearborn, had been busy for two days in the new location in the Still building, together with two local carpenters, Troy Harris and Erwin Hieber. Harris and Hieber are still working on finishing and panel installation. Saturday morning at 9 a.m., the postoffice opened to bedlam. It was no fault of the postal department or of the staff- that —in a pouring rain—every single one of the 582 box owners had to be given a new combination lock and shown how to use it. A few of the boxes stubbornly refused to open under any circumstances. By 5 p.m. Friday Postmistress Mrs. Arthur O'Neill was both haggard and hoarse from reciting combination numbers to long lines of—relatively—^patient people. - On Monday the confusion was still enormous, but it had died Councilman-eleet Jackson T. Bennett was sworn in Thursday at City Hall by City Clerk E. J. Muir. Bennett, who will fake office Jan. 1, ran third in a five-way race for the seat in results so close that !a recount is pending, re quested by defeated candidate Charles Kern. Only three votes separated the two candidates. Bennett's nominating petitions were filed by a friend but circulated by Bennett himself, lie emphasized this week. gentle uproar. Meantime, Jerry McPeake and Sale Rothfuss had kept the mail on time ... or at least had kept up with first class mail and parcel post. Third class mail, magazines, lagged slightly. Tt.will help a great deal," Mrs. O'Neill urged today, "if people will use their postal box numbers on addresses. It would save us a lot of time." Since many families share boxes, mail may be delayed if box numbers are not used in addressing. The postoffice staff expects to be completely organized in time for the "rush of Christmas It has not yet' been decided, Mrs. O'Neill said, whether it will be possible to keep the lobby part of the building open nights and holidays. The building was constructed to make it possible to do so, while the main portion of the office is locked, but some postoffices throughout the country have suffered vandalism and broken mailboxes in such unlocked corridors. Keeping the lobby, open will. depend upon Postal Department permission as well as available police protection, she said. Postoffice authorities will also ask City Council to install five-minute parking meters -in front of the new postoffice. FARM BUREAI3— SETS OWN CITY WEEK With n a t i o n a 1 Farm-City Week running from Nov. 21 to Nov. 27, Washtenaw County Farm Bureau has decided to forego the excitement temporarily and declare their own week later in the winter. Tentative plans for at least a Farm-City day, in January or February, were made before most of the Farm Bureau membership here and almost the whole board of directors went deer-hunting. - Farm Bureau members will -invite urban-dwelling guests to a dinner and program sometime after Christmas, a representative said, adding, "Deer season is no time for dinner-parties'* J).
