FOOTBALL MEET SCHEDULED AU High Schpol boys interested in.* footbaU are-asked to ' report Friday, August 25, at 6:30 p.m.. at "the High School locker room for physical ex- , ami-nations and distribution of equipment. _.' ., Saline High May Change To Class B Saline High School may become a "Class B" school this faU. The designation, purely extra-curricular, has nothing whatever to do with academic standards: Instead, it's an indication of size of enrollment, to determine which schools Saline wiU meet in tournament play. Saline has previously been listed as "Class C" - up to, but not including, "400 students (in grades 8 through^jL^). Schools •v'a'Hh'-r'eriroUments "of between 400 and about 800 are Usted "Class B". School officials won't know untU early October, when the official Athletic Association count is made, whether SHS has grown a notch. High School Principal Elmer Houghton's most recent count showed 398 students . . . but there; may be some who wiU move away, or others moving in, from whom he hasn't heard. Class B status, if it occurs this year, wUl not affect the school's regular sport calendar; nor wiU. it affect SHS membership in the Washtenaw conference. But it wiU throw the Hornets into a much tougher league in tournament play. The new status might also make a change in forensic competition, Houghton said; but it will not alter the level of Band competition. The High School Band, whose status is set under a different system, is already listed with Class B schools. NO SCHEDULE? CALL HIGH SCHOOL High School students who have not yet received their schedules with a letter announcing their registration days, may caU the High School (HAzel 9-7330) after Friday, August 18. Gold Rush Indians, Prospector, Stage Coach to Arrive Friday And along with all their honors, Saline 4-H'ers also got a few hard knocks at the big county show. Katrene Gall had to make the rounds of the fairgrounds on crutches after her well-fattened Angus steer stepped on her, foot. HERE ^TIS! SHS 1961 Football Schedule Streets Get $3,657 Back From State Saline has received its regular quarterly check from the State Highway Department . . . this time amounting to $3,627. Monies received from the state Motor Vehicle Highway Fund are used here to pay for major street construction and maintenance. AU state gasoline and diesel fuel taxes, license plate fees and a smaU amount of misceUaneous fees are deposited in the Motor Vehicle Highway Fund. After deductions, the money is distributed under provisions of state law which provides that 47 per cent goes to the State Highway Department for use on state highways, 35 per cent to the state's 83 counties for use on county roads, and 18 per cent to 510 incorporated cities and viUages for their roads and streets. Under this formula, the State Highway Department wiU receive $20,583,234 as its share of the second quarter coUections, whUe the counties wUl receive $15,327,940 and the incorporated cities and viUages wUl get $7,882,941. Wheat Crop Badly Damaged by Moisture j Mr: and Mrs. E. A. SawaU spent Saturday in Lansing visiting relatives. Sept. 15 Onsted "Away Sept. 22 Dexter Hese Sept. 29 South Lyon Here Oct. 6 •Manchester Here Oct. 13 U-High Away Oct. ,20 Ypsi-Roosevelt Away Oct. 27 Pinckney Here Nov. 3 Chelsea - Away As the combining season ended this week, local wheat farmers were hurting . . . but not nearly as much as those in other areas. In other years, with a reasonably early planting season, wheat would have been ripe and harvested two weeks ago . . . before the consistent and damaging rains. In fact, the earliest wheat harvested here was fine, and drew top prices. Then, although the price for good wheat rose, the farmer's -take began to drop sharply. The wheat was sprouting. SaUne MercantUe Co. Tuesday quoted a top price of $1.85 on white, wheat, exceptionally good for harvesting time. But there were few. takers. The earUest wheat brought in was good, manager Lyle PhiUips said. But, with, only about half of the crop in, sprout began to appear. It showed up first in Bridgewater. Then Saline farmers found it too. Loads coming in this week were nearly a quarter sprouted. Red wheat, with a harder kernel, hasn't suffered sprout this year . . . but most local farmers plant white. "I hope they won't give up the white," said PhiUips. "I've been in this business 30 years and this is only the second time I've seen this happen." But he is concerned about;. the U.S. Department of Agriculture grading he'U have to. deal.with: "They. grade even steeper.than we do." Badly sprouted -wheat dropped local farmers' prices as low as $1.53 a bushel . . . but in Indiana, farmers were staggered to receive as Uttle as 40 cents a bushel. And a Maumee miU had a load come in that was 80 per cent sprout. North, south,, east and west, the sprout was considerably worse than in SaUne . . .which had, after all, a dryer season than most areas- ;. Corn-.farmers were happier. Corn thrives in moist weather. Saline's big Frontier Days celebration, Friday and Saturday, is turning into the greatest thing since the Gold Rush, with more rides, shows, and excitement than a fair. Anyway, bargain-hunting is a good deal easier and more profitable than panning for gold, and there'll be a lot more bargains to be found as local merchants move their best wares onto the sidewalk in the midst of the fun. The Ust of goings-on is to be nearly endless. In the first place, everybody — including the'local marshal-and~his».dep-. uties — wiU go into western garb. The law wUl.be far too busy to tend to parking meters since at least one gun-slinger (Cal Hieber). was last seen practising for a High Noon. They'U also have to keep a keen eye on the horse drawn stage coach from Frontier City, which wiU be downtown here from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday to give rides to all comers. Tickets wiU be given away with each $2 purchase (with a limit of five tickets to a purchase) by Chamber of Commerce merchants: Dancer's, Schmid's, Anderson's, Gambles, Walker's DoUar Store, Corner Drug, Estes Pharmacy,- Walker's Bakery, Hull's, Harry's Standard Service, Mart y's Restaurant, and Steeb Dodge and Plymouth. Get your stage coach riding done early, since the famed Washtenong Indian dancers wUl give a performance on North Ann Arbor street, just off Michigan avenue, at 7:30 _p.m., Friday. They'U also dance on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. Pony rides will be avaUable aU day Friday downtown. - When you get hungry, stop in at Marty's Restaurant for Western Stew or hearty steak and eggs. Or pause at the Corner Drug Store either Friday or Saturday for a free Snow-Cone. A coke-machine wiU be found outside Estes Pharmacy. The Jaycee popcorn wagon wiU be in operation, too. Or cool off -from the desert sun with ice cream from Jim Wolfinger and Bob Merchant, who wUl have mounted their ice cream cart on a horse and buckboard for the occasion. • An electric organ demonstration- by Keyboard Piano of Ann Arbor wtil fee in Gambles window both days; and radio station WOIA's mobile studio will be operating here both Friday and Saturday. him by the fuU beard (it's real), the scrunch hat, the pack on the back, and old pistol at the hip. Mr. Karmann's varied history also includes two terms as the first mayor of the city of Dearborn, and many years of travel throughout the United States. At the moment, he sponsors the preservation and conservation of natural resources and, to that end, recently turned over his Ford road property to Ann Arbor elementary schools for study of nature and wUd- Ufe. It is knownVas the Kar- mann Nature Center. Saturday's events will be launched by the reverberating tones of a real calUope, loaned for the event by Detroit Edison Co., and it wUl be here aU morning. Also in the morning comes the big parade of little cow- pokes, and a contest to select the best cowboy and cowgirl costumes worn by children under 12. Each wiU win a $25 savings bond for the wearer. Art Katterjohn wiU lead the sidewalk parade, starting from the city parking lot at 10 a.m. Saturday. Three SaUne Steer Club members wiU serve as the contest judges. Saturday's events also include exhibits on safety and law enforcement by Trooper Johnson of the YpsUanti State Police post, a repeat by the Washtenong dancers, and — naturally — more gold on them thar' bargain counters. Dodge City was never like this!
