The VOLUME 15, NUMBER 1 —WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1961 aline "First With All the Local News' 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Katr Bev Brown Voted "Miss Congeniality" "If you'd get me a chair," said Katrene Gall, "I think I'd better sit down." The new Miss Saline had good reason for feeling slightly weak in the knees — the honors were coming pretty thick and fast. Katrene has been Washtenaw county Dairy Princess since' last spring. Then, when the Steer Club of which she is president was entertained at lunch by the Rotary club Thursday noon, she learned from Don Wiedman that she had been selected to represent Washtenaw county as Miss Farm Bureau. Finally, at the Jaycee-spon- sored program at the Fair on Thursday night, came the topper . . . MC Doug Elfring announced that Miss Saline of 1961 would be . . . Katrene Gall. Sara Schaible, daughter of the Wilbert Schaibles, of 8005 Pleasant Lake Rd„ was named first runner-up; and Elaine Ference, daughter of Mrs. Cecelia Ference of 10789 Jordan Rd., was second runner-.up. The two will appear with the Queen as her Court, at civic functions throughout the year. All of the girls are High School seniors., The contestants themselves selected Beverly Brown as "Miss Congeniality" for reasons best described by one of those who voted: "She has the warmest personality and is the iendliestr of any of us." Beverly, also a senior, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Brown of 257 S. Ann Arbor St. Katrene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Gall of 6174 Willow Rd., intends to enter Michigan State university next year to study home economics and to become a teacher. Meanwhile, she has put in a singularly active High School career. Besides her Steer Club activities, she is on the Honor Roll, has been a cheer leader and majorette, and plays with the High School Band and Michigan Youth Band. She wrote the script for the 1960 Band Frolics. She is a member of the Student Court, the FHA, and the Future Nurses club, of which she has been president. She has been vice president of the South Central League of Nursing . . . home economics plans notwithstanding. In St. Paul's E. & R. Church, she is a member of the choir and Youth Fellowship. FAIR ATTENDANCE SETS NEW RECORD Gate receipts at Saline Community Fair indicate attendance soared to an all-time high this §^iyear of 10'550 Persons> easily '< ' Jj! surpassing last year's high of ' '10,210. A capacity crowd Saturday ^.-J night more than compensated for low attendance on partly- rainy days Wednesday and Thursday. Due to a camera malfunction, the picture of the Queen's Court taken *at the Fair Thursday, didn't turn out right and had to be re-done. We were sorry about this — until early Tuesday morning when the Queen, her Court, and Miss Congeniality poured into the office, spiffy in their pastel formals, to let us get a re-take. Now, if you can think of a better way to spend Tuesday morn ing than taking pictures of four bright, cheerful, and lovely young women, let us know. Otherwise, we are going to use that same camera at the Fair next year and it will almost certainly develop a malfunction in the exact same circumstances. So here they are, left to right: first runner-up, Sara Schaible; Miss Congeniality, Bev Brown; Katrene; and second runner-up, Elaine Ference. X Open Beef, Swine, Dairy Winners Named Champion of the Show in the open beef competition at the Fair was Elaine Steeb's champion Angus. Freddie Gall showed the champion Hereford. In swine judging Albert Feld- kamp's entries won all points for Hampshire breed; and Gene and Gary Girbach showed all the winning Poland Chinas. Holsteins walked away with the dairy judging, most of them owned by George Macomber, George Macomber, Jr., and Carl Macomber. George Macomber, Jr., showed the Grand Champion Holstein female. Senior heifer was owned by Katrene Gall; Larry Wild had junior heifer; and Debby Hammond entered the junior calf the milking shorthorn class.

IIO Register At Fair as OM Settlors Of 110 Old Settlers who registered at the Fair, nearly 30 had lived in the Saline area for more than 75 years . . . and quite a few had been residents for more than 80 years. Prizes for those who had lived here longest went to H.

She was born in Saline township, November 23, 1874.

Lewis, a lifelong resident, was born in 1874. Saline's oldest Old Settler, of course, was Centennarian Fred- ericka McBride of 100 E.

Two other registrants, unquestionably Old Settlers, declined to say exactly how long their life-long residency has been. Margaret E. Miller, of 11730 Maple Rd., and Mrs. Eck- hardt Schroen, of the same address registered, but declined to give birthdates ... a lady's privilege.

HS Band to Salute City Recreation The High School Marching Band, 72 members strong, will open its first half-time show, at the Dexter game Friday, with a salute to the city's Summer Recreation Program. Kick-off time for the first home game of the season is 7:30 p.m. The half-time show is designed as recognition for "the people responsible for this won- d e r f u 1 recreation program," Band Director Art Katterjohn said. It will include features on the Little League baseball teams, the swimming program at the YMCA, and the Teen Club. The Marching Band this year is the biggest and one of the best the school has ever had, Katterjohn said. The show will open to a precision drill including Company Fronts, Revolutions, Pinwheels, a Big Diamond and Moving Diamond drills to the ever popular "Mister Touchdown U. S. A.". Then, while the band salutes the summer baseball program, they will form a ball, bat, and glove while they play "Take Me Out to the Ball Game". Continuing with a salute to the day recreation and swimming program, the band will form a sail-boat as typical of the water sports in our "Water Wonderland". Concluding with a salute to the Teen Canteen, the band will perform a dance step to the Latin Amrican tune "Patricia", featuring solos by Lydia Robison and Bob Austin. "The show, is a direct outgrowth of the band's week at Interlochen, during which, they rehearsed for seven hours a day in marching and concert band to get ready for this year's activities," Mr. K said. Lwestocm A uction Brings Big Prices Livestock drew big prices at the Auction Friday night at the Fair, and Saline Community hospital, the FFA, and the Lamb club benefited from donations.

Voters to Fill Three City Council Seats City voters wUl go to the polls one more time this year — three City CouncU seats are to be fiUed at the November 7 election. The expiring CouncU terms are those of Orren Corl, who is completing a two-year term; Dr. John Buck, who was elected last year for a one-year term; and Arthur Heininger, who was appointed in July to fiU the remainder of the term vacated by J. C. Little.

Ford, chairman of the Charter Commission. The Michigan Municipal League has recommended a number of changes in the Charter, upon which the Commission wiU begin meetings next week, Ford said. The League also recommended that the finished Charter should appear on the April, 1962, baUot instead of November 7, on the grounds that the importance of the CouncU election would distract attention from the Charter, the chairman said. Petitions for Council candidates must be returned to the City Clerk no later than October 17, and must carry signatures of at least 65 registered electors. ECONOMICS PROFESSOR GIVES BERLIN VTEWS Kenneth Boulding, professor of economics and co-director of the Center for Conflict Resolution at University of Michigan, spoke on his view of the BerUn situation, at a meeting of Washtenaw county Democratic Committee, at the Elementary School Wednesday evening. The county committee met also to review results of the recent Con Con election. seeking admission to the Saline area United Fund roster, and granted permission to both to appear before the UF budget committee when it meets next week. The budget committee is headed by Dean Burkhardt. Washtenaw county Special Education Director John Mader, of Saline, spoke for one of the organizations . . . the Washtenaw county Association for Retarded ChUdren. The association requires a county budget of $13,130 and provides what instruction is possible for chUdren unable to benefit from the cqunty's special education program . . . that is, for nearly uneducable children. At the present, 26 chUdren in the county are serviced by the group; one of them is from SaUne. The association has asked the local United Fund for $250. Carl O'Brien, of 207 S. Ann Arbor St., spoke for the new Saline area Social Service, Inc., which has made no specific request. The organization, set up here this year, hopes to provide interim aid for needy persons untU regular, county welfare groups can be contacted to accept the cases. "This group can serve a good function," said Harrison, "but I suggest they should-lcome before the budget committee with a reaUstic budget." 'The corporation's spokesman said^ that its $2 .famUy-mem- bership plan was "an intrinsic part of the idea of community participation in that each membership carries the right to vote at the annual meeting and thus some measure of control of policy". Permission to the organizations to appear before the budget committee does not constitute admission to the United Fund group, unless and untU the budget committee aUots them funds, Harrison explained. Saline area United Fund last year reached 101 per cent of its $9,775 goal. FHA Captures First Prize For Float For the fifth consecutive year, a float entered in the Fair parade by the Future Home- makers of America won first prize. The float, topped by a spinning globe of the earth, was captioned "World of FHA" and depicted the nation, community, home and church. Other winning floats were entered by the Girl Scouts, a camping scene, 2nd; Pleasant Ridge neighbors, 3rd; Brownies, 4th; the American Legion, 5th; and one entered by the Jerry Emerson famUy of Ann Arbor i placed 6th.
