The Saline Reporter VOLUME 14, NUMBER 9 - WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1960 'First With All the Local News" 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Mayor-elect- Jack Bennett will ask for "at least one" meeting with the present Council to discuss issues expected to require attention next year, and will also seek "one or two" meetings of the future Council, in December. All of the meetings will be open to the press, he said. The conclaves with the future Council will be mainly to determine which aspects of the city organization each Councilman-elect is most interested in, Bennett said. "In the past, the GOING UP! And going up fast, is the Saline area Community Chest thermometer, now nearly out of Hugh Keveling's reach as he pushes up the mercury from 83 to 90 per cent. Campaigners are sure it will go "over the top" next week.

Nearly all individual campaign workers had reported, Miss Lambarth said; but some industrial reports were still lacking. "We expect to wind this up next week,"_ , said ^Campaign Chairman. Donald Rapp, "and I still think we're going to hit it. We're, all quite confident that the job will be completed very soon" .' The $9,775 goal, 11 per cent "aboye last year's, was the highest ever soughtin a Saline drive but was not out of proportion with population increases, the budget committee had felt. Saline area residents employed in other communities were reminded again that if they contributed at work they could mark their contributions for Saline; and persons who have not been contacted are asked to call Miss Lambarth or Rapp. Bennett to With Both Confer Councils Saline Teachers To Tour Russia With U-M Band Richard Longfield, assistant band director in Saline, and Kenneth Oyer, a practice teacher here, will be among members of the University of Michigan Symphony Band who will make a three-months' tour of Russia and the satellite countries and the Mediterranean area next spring. The Band will leave February 20 or 21 on a State Department tour, in the Cultural Exchange program with Russia. After about two months in the USSR and satellite countries, they will travel in the Mediterranean area, and return to this country the last week of May. Longfield, a graduate student in the U—M school of music, will give his degree recital six days before the Band leaves on its trip. He plays cornet and trumpet. He came to the Saline school system as a part-time teacher in September. city has operated with four Commissioners, (Fire and Police, Publics Works, Building and- Planning, Parks and Recreation)" he explained. "Since these are not set by the Charter, and since we now have six Councilmen besides myself, we may want to divide these differently and add one or two. It would be foolish to waste any of the abilities the city has given us by electing seven men instead of five." Bennett added: "I want to make it plain that I, personally, do not intend to turn everything upside down. This is a good city and the men who have been in office have helped to make it. that way. It certainly won't be the intention of this Council to undo all the good things that Mr. Leutheuser and Mr. Deede, and others, have done over the years. "I think our main job wiU be to work toward the future growth of Saline and make certain it will be as well looked after in the future as it has been in the past. I have no doubt in my mind that the next two years will be good years, and I think we will accomplish something."
