NUMBER 47 The WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 1959 t* First With All the Local News' 7c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Editor's Mailbag: -% Esther Reports On Russia Tour <** Nixons Given . Warm Reception BY ESTHER LANDWEHR (Special to the Reporter) (Editors's note: Sure enough, with her usual talent for being in the thick of things, the Reporter's "roving foreign correspondent" was in the right part of the world at the right time. Below, her report on part of the Vice President's visit to Russia.) LENINGRAD, USSR — Our tour director was able to get tickets to the ballet here in Leningrad and our whole group of 30 people went. What a thrill! It was the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen, in a beautiful five-balconied theatre. The cast was huge and the acting, dancing, costuming and stage settings simply superb. But just before the performance began, a few reporters in the center aisle aimed a camera to the box just about 10 feet above where I was sitting and we knew somebody was expected and then Vice President and Mrs. Nixon appeared. We had rather thought and had heard rumors that hie might be there, but no one said for sure. He was very warmly and well-received. Everybody, with few exceptions, rose to his feet ►with applause. The Nixons were very gracious. Then, after the first intermission the theater manager appeared on stage and introduced them, and then the Nixon party appeared in the two boxes to the left of the stages, and there was another warm reception. They remained there for the remainder of the performance. After the show was over, a huge croud waited outside to watch the party drive away. In the Nixon party, we were told, were John Daly of "What's My Line", Milton Eisenhower, Kozlov — who was recently in the USA — and a few others. In the audience, we were told, were Admiral Rickover of Polar Ice Cap expedition fame, several movie celebrities, etc. Staying in our hotel are Jinx Falkenburg and Merle Oberon, as well as many press men due to the Nixon arrival here fom Moscow where he opened the American Exposition last week, and which we hope to see next week. Many Americans are here on tours. 55 in City Program Pass Swim Tests In a conclave held at the Intermediate school gym last I week, 55 Saline area youngsters 'received their Red Cross Beginners' Certificates for swim- , ming.

Washtenaw GP's Tour New Hospital Members of the Washtenaw county chapter of the Academy of General Practice inspected Saline Community Hospital Tuesday after a luncheon meeting at the Saline Hotel. Several members of the chapter are listed on the hospital staff here, and all three Saline MD's, Gordon Prout, Harold Miller, and Rudenz Douthat, are members of the organization. Dr. Douthat was recently elected its secretary. Hospital administrator Miss Shirley Dovre also attended the meeting. Oh! By The Way *:m- The "little brown nanny goat" lost last week by the Ormond Seitz family has been found and safely returned home. The little lady was found stuck in a fence at the Clarence Johnson's about a mile or so from the Seitz home. She had incurred a broken leg, which has been taken care of and is mending nicely. Otherwise she was in fine fettle when found. For a while, it looked as if the recent Pleasant Ridge drive community picnic was going to -stretch from Saturday to Monday. But it finally wound up around Sunday noon, with steaks at the Glenn Clarks', after beginning Saturday evening between the John Satoris and the Maurie Levleit residences, with a potluck. Somewhere in between the two, there was outdoor dancing, and then 6 a.m., coffee .. .and horseshoe games. What's a little mix-up in geography among friends? So reasoned Art and Donna Moehn's chums, who gave the pair a surprise " Bon Voyage" .party Saturday night to see them off Ion a week's jaunt to Bermuda. I The celebrants started off well by wearing Bermuda shorts but ended up by decking the Moehns in leis, a confusion our 50th state might resent. Still, the gals' grass skirts were a good idea for ANY party! •ss* PACKING PROBLEM: you may not have thought of it, but transporting the High School chemistry department to its new quarters involved moving thousands of test tubes, bottles, vials, beakers, flasks, and other fragile containers... .and the job was done (with special crating) without losing more than three or four glass items. Since if s been such a fine year for cucumbers, Mrs. Cecelia Ference has decide- to expand her pickle-relish activities*.. .she has made it for years for her family, who love it; and this year daughter Elaine suggested she sell some. She took it to market last Saturday for the first time, and it went over big, big, big. So she's in business! Congratulations all around were exchanged Sunday at the Hospital Dedication ceremony by (above) Bill Brittain, president of the Hospital Association; Dr. Harold Miller, vice Chief of Staff; and guest speak er Congressman George Meader. Congratulations all around have also been exchanged among everyone who has so far visited the hospital. — Reporter Staff Photo. Na.t a detail was forgotten where the hospital was concerned;,and the American Legion Post here thought of this one. A flagpole for the premises was donated by the Legion-, and the flag was given by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Brink. As soon as the new 50-star flags come out, the Legion will obtain one for the hospital. Raisingr the flag above, (left to right): Frank Deede; Milt Finkbeiner, and Legion Commander Ted Graban.

Dr. Miller Home In Time For Sunday Ceremony Nearly 1,000 Saline area residents and visiting doctors and dignitaries toured Saline Community Hospital .after Dedication ceremonies which officially opened the hospital here Sunday; and approximately 500 attended the program at which Congressman George Meader was the featured speaker. Also present for the event was Dr. Harold Miller, vice Chief of Staff of the hospital, who returned home Saturday after weeks of specialized treatment at University Hospital in Ann Arbor. Dr. Miller will remain at home, and' hopes to resume his practice this fall. Hospital Association President Bill Brittain, in his welcome to the assembled crowd, especially singled out Dr. Miller as having "led the way" in the organization, and preparation, that led to the construction of the hospital. - Brittain also commended the Bridgewater Lumber Co., -general contractors for the construction, as having gone "far beyond the call of duty, in doing far more work than they were paid for in actual dollars and. cents." Ruben Finkbeiner, representing the firm, presented the keys to the building to Brittain, to climax the ceremonies. Other contractors involved in the building were also praised for their work and willingness. The hospital represents the "culmination of a decade of Jhard work by hundreds of dedicated people," Brittain emphasized. Congressman Meader, of Michigan's second Congressional district, said that the greatest significance of the hospital lay in the fact of its having been built by the people themselves, without having "looked to the 'Great White Father* for help." "This is evidence of the vigor and vitality of the Saline-area people," Meader stated. Meader was introduced by Carl Curtiss, a member of the hospital board of directors. The Rev. T. W. Menzel gave the Invocation, and- the dedicatory prayer was given by the Rev. Alfred Hardt. Mrs. Francis Lockwood was chairman of the committee which planned the program.. Members of the Hospital Auxiliary, who conducted about 1000 people through the new building j Sunday, may have tired feet , this week.... but could probably now conduct a tour blindfolded. Pat Lenning is home from Olivet College for between-terms vacation. She is staying with Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Wight at their home on N. Harris St. Dr. Al Milford returned to his home in Ypsilanti Tuesday after a bout with pneumonia at Beyer Hospital. He and his wife Beth will probably go up north for a few days while he continues to recuperate. Nona -Schmid spent three days in the hospital last week, having a, check-up. Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Wat- ling took a trip up the St. Lawrence seaway last week, traveling on both the Canadian and the U.S. sides. They viewed the various locks, one of which was the Eisenhower lock in New York state. They came back by way of Sarnia, Ont., and Port Huron. Also touring the St. Lawrence seaway last week were Jim and -Esther Gross. They went up as far as the'Thousand Islands. The Grosses travelled through the mountains in New York state on their way back home. They went through the Catskills and Appalachians, and visited Lake *Placid. Coming through Pennsylvania they report that the scenery was beautiful. Before returning to Saline, they stopped for a visit with Jim's brother, Warren, in Canton, Ohio. The latest addition to the Frey family is a husky baby boy. David Garrett Frey was born on August 4 at St. Joseph Hospital and weighed in at a very hefty 8 pounds and 15 ounces. The young man and his mother are now home and doing fine. Mr. and Mrs. Don Campbell and Jane entertained the following guests at a picnic last Sunday morning: Miss Kay Disel- rod, Phil Campbell, Mrs. Harold Vaughn, Mr. and Mrs.'Sid White, Mr. and Mrs. Max Haswell and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gray.

Their guests here have included Mrs. Gray's brother, Donald Allen, and family, who spent two days here on their way to Crystal Lake. Another j brother, Robert Allen, and family, visited the Grays on their way home from the same lake. And Dr. and Mrs. WUl Nichols, of Medina, Ohio, are spending this week with the Grays. Drive-in banking service? Sure, If your car will fit the doors, as Doc Rudy Douthat" s little Fiat obviously does.
