Lodi Rejects Liquor: Saline Area Turns Out Record Vote Saline city and all the surrounding townships Tuesday turned out record votes, and gave Republican candidates a heavy edge that ranged from 2-1 in Pittsfield and York town-^ ships to 4-1 in Lodi and Saline townships. In the city of Saline, with 85 per cent of registered voters turning out, Republican county, state, and national candidates had an edge of about 3% to 1.

In Lodi, about 82 per cent of registrants voted, and a long waiting line kept township officials busy throughout election day. York township switched from the caucus system of selecting nominees to the party primary system, a proposal that was carried 2 to 1. 84 per cent of registered voters went to the polls, a turn-out of 2139. In Saline township, the total vote, 389, represented a whopping 95 per cent and included SCHOOL PICTURES TO BE RE-TAKEN Pictures taken of the children at Saline Intermediate School and Elementary School turned out badly, according to word received this week from the photographers.

Girbach said: "If the hospital is successful in the community, the Ford Foundation and other foundations may be willing to aid the community in developing larger facilities with a greater scope of services, skills, and technical equipment."
