It is available simply by dialing NOrmandy 5-8622 for the SALINE WEATHER DIAL. Weather forecasts by telephone are not new in the area. The Weather Dial was estab- Ushed in Ann Arbor almost a year and a half ago and has since been expanded to serve Chelsea, Dexter, South Lyon, Whitmore-Lake and MUan. Ultimate expansion plans for Weather Dial include serving all communities within a 26-mile radius of Ann Arbor. The automatic weather service has enjoyed a continued public acceptance, according to Stuart Abbey, sales manager of Great Lakes Weather, Inc. During the last 17 months, over one million weather forecasts have been delivered. During a tornado alert last July a total of .12,000 caUs were answered in one 24-hour period.

They broke open the door to a .walk-in vault in the school office to obtain the' cash. They also entered the cafeteria, helped themselves to cheese and chocolate milk, and took away a number of lunch tickets. Damage to school property was ""estimated at about §600, including the vault door which will have to be replaced. The robbery apparently occurred between 1 and 4 a.m. Friday, police said, but it was not discovered untU school opened. Petitions Valid, Attorney Says. Saline residents wiU have a chance to vote — probably at the April election -- on the removal of parking meters and on a hiring restriction that would make only residents eU- gible for fuU-time employment by the city. The questions wUl appear on the baUot as a result of two petitions, both circulated by John Predmore, of 273 Mark Hannah Ct., but under the names of two separate committees. Both were rejected last week by City CouncU on the premise -that -they were insufficient as initiatory petitions. But CouncU "reversed its .action in a special meeting Saturday after a written legai opinion from City Attorney Allan • Grossman indicated that they were valid. One of the petitions, under the name of the "Committee of Citizens Dedicated to the Bet-r ferment of Saline, as a'City in which to live and shop", seeks the removal of "the most easterly eight meters on the south side of E. Michigan Ave.] the most easterly, .nine meters on the north* side of E. -Michigan Ave.; the most westerly 10 meters . on the north side of W. Michigan Ave.; the most westerly 7 meters on the. south side of W. Michigan Ave., and aU 1 parking meters in the City Parking lot". The second petition was Ust- ed under the would be needed if they were , to initiate or amend an ordinance. - One petition carried "81 signatures; the other had 84. There are approximately '10*35 registered voters in SaUne. Whether the questions wiU appear on the April baUot wUl depend on whether there is stiU time to certify them- with the County Clerk the required number" of days before election, Grossman said. Although the petitions only bring a "question" to the voters, if they should be approved "CouncU would then be obligated to- take such action as would effect the wUl of the people," he added. J Predmore said he believed the specifies meters should be-.removed "in order to get rid of them in residential areas. WhUe (Continued on Page 8) GET.

Moore now lives on north Ann Arbor street. CouncU instructed City Clerk BiU Muir to begin certification of the petitions after Grossman advised them that "these petitions cannot be construed to be for the initiation, of ordinances or amendments since they request only the submission of a 'question' to the electors." The submission of "ques- tions""by petition comes under the Home Rule Act and "must be accomplished in a manner similar to that provided for charter amendments", Grossman said. Thus the petitions, in this case, would require sig natures of only 5 per cent of the registered electors of the here will:• bemailed city, not the 25 per cent that Conway said. f^BV&saa&s is made, local subscribers may also dial NO 113 for information, and NO 114 for service.
