j.afs WEATHER REPORT: Nice next Tuesday. The Saline Reporter 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR VOLUME 13, NUMBER 36 ~- WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 1960 "First With All the Local News' COUNCIL APPROVES $152,532.18 CITY BUDGET Coe Enters Race For School Post Gerald Coe, a former City Councilman and a businessman in Saline for 20 years, this week announced that he will be a candidate for a three-year term in the School Board election to be held at the Intermediate School June 13. Coe's petition was the seventh to be filed with Board of Education Secretary Oliver Steiner, for the two three-year terms and two four-year terms to be filled at the election.

Even so, Salinians were still jubilant today after capturing the first all-sports trophy in the new Washtenaw Conference. As well as being the first conference all-sports trophy it was another first for the Hornets. For the first time in two decades local athletes could add another all-sports trophy to their case. Twenty long years ago, when Don Fuller coached Saline teams, the other trophy was added.. -.•i940'',ireads> the date and since then not another'. has been added. In 1955-56 local sportsters had come close, taking titles in both football and basketball, but were unable to garner the necessary points from the poor spring season to claim the title. Other years since 1940 Saline came near to the goal, with titles in some- j times two sports, but failed in! the other sports. Finally this was the year. Both coaches, Rotunno and Jaeger, felt that the spring teams could perform well. Both hoped \for titles. Coming out of winter athletics, Chelsea led Saline by two points with thirteen points from their football championship and their second place in basketball. Saline had a total of eleven with four from a fourth on the gridiron and seven from the hoop win. The spring season started. The cinder team barely edged Chelsea in a triangular meet with U-High to open their competition. The diamond unit tripped on their opener with a 9-6 loss to Dexter. Slowly both teams began to bounce back. On the track the thinclads ran up an impressive string of dual meet wins. The baseball team reared back and upset Chelsea and moved quickly into first place. Things went well until a week ago Tuesday. On one disastrous afternoon the baseball squad dropped from lone leadership to second place and the track team settled for a second. Even some happiness could be found from that day. By finishing second the track team had made up one of the two points difference. Saline now trailed Chelsea 18-17. In the last days of last week Saline's hopes again grew as Chelsea lost to Roosevelt while the Hornets topped Pinckney. Saturday's victory over Manchester assured the possession of the trophy for the four sports, for Saline was sure of a second place finish, while Chelsea could not finish within (Continued on Page 4) piring terms, will give Saline area a seven-man School Board for the first time. Meanwhile, Everett Esch, who had considered the possibility of becoming a candidate, announced that he had decided against it. "I would not be able to devote the proper amount of attention to it at this time," Esch said. Candidates who have filed in the race include, for the four- year term: Incumbent Raymond Girbach, Francis Lockwood, and Harold Brown; for the three- year term, besides Coe, Lauren Wild, Ormond Jedele, and Donald Wiedman. Coe, who lives at 205 E. Michigan, is 46 years old and the father of two school-age children. Born and raised in Chelsea, he has been a resident of Saline for 30 years, and has operated a barber shop here for 20 years. He served on the City Council in 1951 and 1952, both as mayor pro tern and as commissioner of public works, at the time when the sewage disposal plant was built and the design and planning of Saline's street program was done. He has been chairman of the city's Recreation Program for three years. He is chairman of Troop 46 Boy Scouts of America, has been a member of the official board of-the Methodist Church for a number of years, and has been a member of Rotary for 15 years and is a past president. He was for three years a member of the Saline Con-imun- ity Fair Board, and has been associated with the Steer Club for 15 years, during which time he has made a number of films on the club. Among them was a 60-minute color film about the Fair and the Steer Club, entitled "Saline in Action" which was widely shown in the area. He has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of Band club. Allots Only $2000 For Street Work City Council, in a special for such raises.

Each of the seven candidates will be asked to answer three prepared questions at the meet: 1. "Why are you running for the School Board?" 2. "What do you feel you have to contribute to the School Board?" and 3. "What do you feel our public schools should accomplish?" Questions from the audience will also be welcomed, a SACA member said; and a coffee hour is planned to allow everyone an opportunity t o become a c- quainted with the candidates on a less formal basis. Parents' "T h e association feels i t would be more fair at this time to limit the scope of the questions to general views," a member said. Candidates who have filed petitions for the four School Board seats to be filled in the June 13 election include Ray* mond Girbach, Francis Lock- wood, Harold Brown, Gfmond Jedele, Donald Wiedman, Gerald Coe, and Lauren Wild. SACA Chairman^-George Johnson-.will act as moderator at the meeting.

C. Lange to retain his real estate broker's license. Mrs. Steeb Elected By Auxiliary Mrs. Jack Steeb was elected president of the Saline Community Hospital Auxiliary, at the annual meeting of the group last Wednesday at the Saline Hotel; and Mrs. Fred Rieckhoff was named first vice president. Other officers chosen for the coming year include M r s. George Wood, second vice president; Mrs. Robert Estes, recording secretary; Mrs. Dale Brown, corresponding secretary; and Mrs. Ruben. Finkbeiner, treasurer. A report was - given on the activities of the toy and book cart, a free service offered to hospital patients by the auxiliary; and the date of regular meetings was changed from the $152,532.18, up $5,786.51 from last year. But the new budget chopped funds for street work to $2,000 for the year. In a determination to maintain the tax rate at 20 mills, Councilmen agreed to raises for police, but budgeted no funds Bus Route To Start Here In Mid-June Bus service between Saline and Ann Arbor will be launched "about the middle of June", according to Eldon Jones, traffic manager of the Bus Company of Ann Arbor, which is setting up the route. Approval for the route has been issued by the Michigan Public Service Commission "on a pending order" which will be issued after the company has submitted rates and time schedules for approval, Jones said. Arrangements have already been completed for a bus stop in the Municipal Parking Lot, at the rear of Still's Hotel, and a tentative schedule will provide five busses from Saline a day, beginning at about 6 a.m. and ending with the last arrival from Ann Arbor, probably around 5:45 p.m. They will cross at the Hoover plant at shift-change. The company is still working put a rate schedule, Jones said, and it will be announced as soon as it is approved by MPSC. The company has also submitted to MPSC tariff rates and schedules for package express. The busses to be used in the run are the Bantam busses in use by the company in city bus pected," explained one Councilman. (Council, in the same meeting, raised police officer Earl Kirby to the rank of Police Chief.) The higher budget, at the same 20 mill tax rate, was written around an anticipated increase of $1000 in motor vehicle funds, based on a 57 per cent population increase, and expected increased sales tax receipts of $3000. With county and school tax collections and disbursements, the total budget stands at $387,386.25. Anticipated wages for volunteer firemen were raised this year from $17,000 to $22,000. Firemen are paid by the hour, while on duty. The roller-coaster drop of the street department's budget from last -year's $28,000 was necessary, Councilmen said, because the city is now paying about $32,000 in debts for street work done in 1958 and 1959. Of the $34,975.06 actually budget- ted for street work this year, $32,975.06 will pay for earlier work. -. The assessed evaluation of the 1960 tax roll is $4,110,455. The 1959 roU was $3,964,093.

Summer Vacation Begins June 10 The schedule to be followed by all three Saline area schools during the last week of school was announced by School Superintendent Leo Jensen today. There will be school all day Monday, June 6, as usual. On Tuesday and Wednesday, June 7 and 8, school will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. There will be no school* on Thursday and on Friday, June 10, classes will be dismissed at 10 a.m. for summer vacation.

Many more enrollments are expected by school authorities, however, since last year's Mn- ies were served. ■"Commerce". September. We have a wonderful school system in Saline Area. Keep it: vote June 13 at the Intermediate School. The number reached "essentially" the epidemic stage, said Dr. Rudenz Douthat, "but it apparently has reached its peak and is going to taper off." Dr. Paul Gerigk reported he had treated 15 cases in three weeks, but felt the word "epidemic" was unjustified and that the number was now on the downgrade. Elementary School, which suffered heaviest .absences (nearly all of one kindergarten room had been out) reported that some youngsters were now returning to school. In the Intermediate School absences were "high but not tremendous." CARNIVAL NETS $138, A total profit of $138.52 was cleared at the annual Cub Scout Carnival in April, Cub Leader James Beal reported this week. The proceeds are used to purchase materials for use in the Scouting program. Be sure to vote in the coming school board election, June 13, at the Intermediate School. Lange also charged that the order is "unsupported by competent material and substantial evidence contrary to the overwhelming weight of evidence" and that the order revoking his license is "arbitrary and capricious". The injunction is sought on the grounds that Lange, who is 77, "will suffer irreparable loss and damage" if the order is enforced. The MCSC ruling which revoked Lange's license held that he was in violation of a Commission rule requiring him to "account for or remit" all funds turned over to him as a broker. Lange's attorney has said that Lange did account for the funds in question, and that he remitted them to Dun Rose Homes, Inc., developers of Golden Acres subdivision here. The suit that resulted in revocation of Lange's license was brought by purchasers of the Golden Acres homes. * (Meanwhile, a number of Saline, residents were circulating documents on Lange's behalf reading: "In 40 years of service to the Saline Area, Albert (Continued on Page 4) Pictured above are the four members of Saline High's Sprint Relay Team who recently competed in the state track meet. -Left to right, they are Larry Tucker, Bill Taylor, Richard Alber.
