N? 0307 The Saline VOLUME 12, NUMBER 10, Wednesday, December 3, 1958 'First With All the Local News' h PER COPY—$3 PER YEAR SCHOOL CHILDREN WITHOUT MILK IN STRIKE Chest Total $7727 Saline's Community Chest total took another jump this week to $7727.80, only about $200 short of quota, with many reports still not in. Most of the out-of-town industries had not yet turned in collections, Wilson Scott, drive chairman said, and these were expected to take the final figure well over the quota of $7931. "We'll certainly reach $8000," Scott said. - Largest single contribution to the present total came from Universal Die, $1700. A meeting of Community Chest board members, to make disbursements according to the budget, will be held as soon as the quota of $7931 is actually in hand,i3cott said. The meeting is expected by the end of December. Meanwhile, contributions from out of town institutions and industries will continue to trickle in for a period of several months. Ypsilanti State hospital and the Ypsilanti Ford plant traditionally report after the first of the year, and at least two Ann Arbor industries have not yet turned over contributions ear-marked to Saline by local residents employed there. The $7931 quota is the largest ever sought in Saline.

GOOD DEER SEASON, SAY PROCESSORS Police Escort Milk Trucks Into County School children ate their lunches without milk Tuesday Lauren Wild Resigns Civil Defense Post Lauren Wild has resigned the post of Civil Defense Director for this area. His resignation, presented to City Council at Monday's meeting, is effective "as soon as a replacement is found," and stems from the fact that his business keeps him frequently out of town, he said. Wild, who has handled the job with the cooperation of Saline's Explorer Scout Troop, said he did not feel it would be possible for the Scouts to continue to head the organization, either with or without another director. "The county's CD plan calls for trained, experienced men to head up police protection, fire protection, medical services, and engineering work," said Wild. "These boys have the brains and the willingness, but let's face it: they lack the training." "^GBrald Miller, Washtenaw county Civil Defense Director, was present at the meeting with a 30 minute discussion of the county CD plan and organization. The county plan lists Saline as Zone 4, together with Saline and Lodi townships. Among Miller's suggestions to Council: purchase of a radio transmitter and receiver at an The deer season tljat 'closed estimated cost of $624, of which Sunday^was a good brie for localfthe'U.S'. government would pay hunters, even a little better than last year. Deer turned in for processing at Haarer's plant, for instance, totalled 56 by Monday morning, with the possibility of a few stragglers being brought in later. There was also one bear, shot by George Conner and Robert Funk hunting together. Last year's total haul was only 54. A" higher proportion- of this year's take was bucks; Haarer's reported. Only six does were included in the lot. 50 per cent. The remaining $312 might be split up by the city and the two townships, he said. Miller also suggested the city pass a Civil Defense ordinance similar to one drawn by the Michigan Municipal League. The various branches of Civil Defense work should be headed by men familiar with the field, working under a local director, Miller advised. Thus, fire, police, medical, and engineering would be operated by the fire chief, the police chief, local doctors, and a trained engineer. / Local Hunter Bass Everything In Sight Nothing bigger than a bread- box escapes the gun of Chester Yarger, of near Milan, who this year alone accounted for a deer, a bear, and a coyote. Hunting near Copper Harbor, Yarger brought down a 10-point buck. He trucked it home for Hatcherwy will hold a reorgani- rack because Tie haa mounted a 9-point rack only last year and didn't need two. He also brought back a poten tial bear rug, in a 1% year-old bear weighing between 50 and 100 lbs. The coyote he did not bring home; he turned it in to Copper Harbor area authorities for $15 bounty and is waiting for the check. Yarger customarily hunts and six-year-olds missed their morning snacks, in the aftermath of a wildcat strike of Detroit milk drivers. Milk had been available Monday only because local drivers went after it themselves and brought it back under police escort. The striking drivers, members of Local 83, United Dairy Workers, AFL-CIO, were protesting the price of milk in retail outlets throughout the area. They said that grocery stores, selling milk several cents cheaper than was possible on home delivery routes, were cutting into the routes and that some had been cancelled altogether. But Kenneth Frey, Twin Pines driver in Saline, said that the home delivery routes .were growing far faster than could be accounted for by growth of population; there are now 200 or more retail stops in this area. Sehool milk Monday was brought from Twin Pines' South- field outlet by Frey; Ray Schoe- der, manager of Saline Dairy; and Frank McKenney, who had driven to Southfield with a caravan of Milan drivers, since he generally picks up the milk for his route in Milan. But McKenney had car trouble, he said, and in the face of threatened violence by pickets around the Dairy plant, he waited to return homewith.the Saline caravan: ' • • The caravan" was, fescorjed to and from the dairy to Washtenaw county line by police cars from Wayne county Sheriff department. It was followed to the county line by several carloads of strikers, but there were no incidents, Frey reported. Over 1000 half-pints of milk were delivered to Saline schools in the nick of time for lunch Monday, but kindergarteners and first^graders had already missed their morning milk. On' Tuesday, Frey first received word that Saline milk could be picked up in Milan, as the strike had ended at 5 a.m. But bottling had not been started until after 7 a.m., and no milk arrived in Saline from Detroit outlets—either for the schools of at grocery stores—until Tuesday evening. Dairies affected by the strike included Sealtest, Borden, and Twin Pines Local grocers who handle milk from Ann Arbor dairies reported no interruption in their supply, and some Detroit milk arived here around Monday noon. Wilson Dairy and Cloverleaf Dairy both have Ann Arbor outlets. With the strike ended, distri- with his father, Robert Yarger, bution is expected to be "back to of Addison, who nailed a coyote ^armsT todaV) Schroeder said last year himself. The take Is always good. Four hunters in the party and four bucks brought home, was the 100 per cent record set by Melvin Armbruster, Larry Finkbeiner, Eugene Betz, and Lloyd Klager, all of Bridge- water. The four hunted together near Houghton from Nov. 12 to Nov. 25, hat Finkbeiner drew; first blood by bringing down His prize at 9:30 a.m. on the. opening day of the season. State Aid Short; Local Schools Borrow Cutbacks in State Aid have caused Saline Area Schools to borrow $75,000, superintendent Leo Jensen said this week. The money was borrowed from a local bank to make up the difference u» state funds normally used'for payrolls, supplies, and operating expenses.- State aid payments, normally calculated at $190 per child, have been 25 per cent short since August, when state funds for the school aid program ran short. Various solutions to the state budget problem have been suggested by legislators, but none has been settled on. The money was borrowed locally" with permission of the Municipal Finance Corporation, in Lansing, which must approve all school loans. .,. - "We haven't pared down, but we are sticking right to our budget," Jensen said.. "Everyone on the payroll has been paid in full."
