The fire was under control in 20 minutes. Would Meet Shifts At Hoover Plant The possibilty of instituting bus service to and from Saline —five trips a day'— is under discussion by the City Bus Company of Ann Arbor. The route, not yet positively arranged, would be scheduled so that busses would arrive at and leave the Hoover plant in time for shift changes. The trips would originate in downtown Saline and downtown Ann Arbor, but transfers to the Ann Arbor city bus routes would carry Saline passengers where- ever they wanted to go in that city, a company representative said. The first and most immediate need, if such service is to be supplied is to find five Saline area residents willing to testify before the Michigan Public Service Commission that such a service is needed, according to Arvin Marshall, president of the company. The company's application for a franchise to operate a Saline run will be heard in Lansing sometime early in April. Salinians willing to make the trip are asked to contact Marshall, ^at NOrmandy 3-8044, or transportation- manager Eldon Jones, at NO 5-6323. The City Bus Co. of Ann Arbor was formed in August, 1959, to contend with the perennial ups and downs of Ann Arbor's public transportation problem. It has been "doing very well indeed" Marshall said; and the same compact 21-pas- senger Bantam busses used in Ann Arbor would be operated on the projected Saline run. The company has received a ])raw~ ni„ Cramd great many requests from Ann L,i ugvt> -°fcs/ ^'OIVU Arborites for public transporta- Dr. S. Finch To Speak At Local Event Dr. Stuart Finch, director of the Child Psychiatric unit of University hospital, will speak here Tuesday, April 5, at a meeting of Intermediate School Room Mothers. His topic will be "Your Children." The meet, scheduled at 8 p.m. in the Intermediate school gym, is open to all parents, since the Room Mothers organization here serves the same purpose that Parent-Teachers' associations serve in other communities, a member pointed out. The public is urged to attend all meetings. Mrs. Regis Wolfinger and Mrs. Harold Smith will be in charge of a coffee hour ,to follow Dr. Finch's address. A business meeting of the Room Mothers is scheduled for Tuesday, March 29, to elect officers and plan participation in the annual School Carnival, of which Mrs. Leonard Niethammer is chairman.

School teachers here have cancelled then* March meeting —traditionally devoted to salary problems — because "there weren't enough problems left to have a meeting about." Without asking for a millage increase, the Saline area Board of Education has come up with a salary schedule that left the 62 teachers in the system almost unanimously "delighted," and chopped teacher turnover by 60 per cent. Members of the Saline Teachers' Club voted unanimously to send a letter of appreciation to the School Board with regard to the new salary schedule, which was worked out after Among farmers honored, as members of the county "400 club" (for a five year average j carport, $665, of 400 pounds or more of but- | lie Crosbie/407' Spring street, for siding, $150; and William K.

Crackdown on Shoplifters Nets Five Five local persons were apprehended over the week-end when the Saline Country Market instituted a sudden crackdown against shoplifters who have been costing the Country Market chain an estimated $10,- 000 to $12,000 a year.

Others of the group are still being questioned, police said. A similar crackdown in the Manchester store netted seven shoplifters in one day, according to Ray Gretzner, manager of the store here. None of the shoplifters involved here were juveniles. The store will remain on the alert against shoplifters, with the intention of being "a mighty tough store to steal' from," Gretzner said. tains seven questions about every person in the household and six questions about the household's dwelling.

Merchants' Report: It's Slightly Spring Saline merchants found this'l week that alternating blizzards and sunshine had SOME effect on their business — but they weren't quite sure what. Anderson's store reported that just a couple of sunshiny days had made up all the rush they lost during -the snowstorms; and Dancer's said business had been fine, even in the snowstorms — but on sunny Saturday, a couple of customers had even inquired about bathing suits! "Nobody bought one, though," manager Eathern Roark observed. Westside Hardware found business slow, sun or snow: "People don't know whether to buy a snow shovel or a rake." At Gambles, the dubious shopper appeared to have decided: "The harder it snows, the more lawn mowers, grass seed, and flower seed we sell,*' said Bob LaRose. Hull's noticed a slight im- provment in beverage sales when the sun came out; and Schmid's were startled by a youngster who wanted to buy watermelon seeds. Walker's Five Cent and Dollar store found business "surprisingly good; people got out even in the snow", but sunny Saturday was "BIG!" Bowlers in the week-end pin tourney were booming the local restaurant trade, with or without weather. months of conferences among a school board committee — Bess Hefft, Ray Girbach, and Superintendent Leo Jensen — and the teachers' Professional Problems committee, headed this year by Dominick Pellegreno. The salary schedule is a modification of the one in use two years ago, according to Jensen, and he feels it will result in "much more permanency" of teacher personnel than in the past. The schedule is based on anticipated revenues from school district population, and on valuation increases expected to run about $4 million in the Saline district, according to an estimate of the Washtenaw county Board of Education. "We do not anticipate asking for a millage increase," Jensen said. "We feel there is a 99 per cent chance we won't need one." The new schedule brought a sudden change in teacher turnover rate, as contracts were presented this week. Tn the Elementary School, which last year lost 20 teachers, only five this year elected not to remain ■— and those for other than salary reasons. "For the first time, an entire grade group (the 4th) is returning," said one teacher. "We can hold up our heads here; this was a good step." Only one teacher will be leaving Intermediate School ... to obtain educational qualification for teaching secondary school. Four teachers will be leaving the high school . . . most of them for family reasons. "We know of NONE leaving for salary reasons," said Jensen. The schedule pays a $4000 minimum to teachers with a bachelor's degree "and $4200 to" those with masters' degrees. The rate is about 5200 lower than that of surrounding com- munitiesj But teachers receive merit raises of $100 to $400 annually here until they reach the $4700 mark. After that, they are on "professional status" and receive increases of $300_a year to the maximum of $6700 with bachelor degree or $6900 with master's degree. The board also has under consideration a plan to provide merit raises above the maximum for outstanding teachers, Jensen said . . . but the present maximum is already higher than in most surrounding schools of comparable or even larger size. Said Art Katterjohn, president of the Teachers' club: (Continued on Page 10) Fireman Should Have Stood in Bed Volunteer fireman Bob Estes should have ignored a fire call at 3:30 a.m. Saturday: When he got up to answer the phone, he bumped into a door. Later, on the way to the fire, his car collided with a vehicle driven by Ron Finkbeiner, and Bob suffered a cut lip that required two stitches. His car was damaged to an estimated $150 . . . and after that, it ran out of gas. The fire, at the corner of Ellsworth and Tessmer roads, was a flaming automobile owned by a Detroit man. The blaze, which 'the firemen said apparently started in the engine, completely destroyed the car. Whether or not his national heritage is Irish, Marvin Walsh, of Saline-Ann Arbor road, above receives congratulations from a fellow Hoover plant employee on Walsh's downright splendid St. Patrick's Day attire ... Mrs. Walsh had worked • till midnight the night before to have it ready. M. D. Avery, president of the Federal Land Bank of St. Paul, has "announced that the Federal Land Bank Association of Ann Arbor has been awarded 1959 "Office of the Year" for the State of Michigan.
