THE EXPERTS Backbone of the Hornets' defense Une, and key to their offensive game, is the combination of experience and brawn at right, senior lettermen who take the field again with years of know-how behind them. Go, go, GO! — Photos by Lanny Robbins Richard Johnson John Johnson Jerry Farrar 99 Ed Strait VOLUME 15, NUMBER 2 ~ WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1961 Gary Niethammer Jerry McDonald Jim Walters 'First With All the Local News' 10c PER COPT — $3 PER YEAR V- ~^Hr±+ Hornets Drop to Second-Half Jinx Costs Game Again by Lanny Robbins Saline High gridders were probably wishing this week that football games were only two periods long. In their season opener against Onsted they were tied 7-7 at the half, but lost 21-19. Friday evening in their first home game this year they hosted the Dexter Dreadnaughts, with about the same results. The Salin- * ians held a good 12-0 lead until the final minute of the first , half; but they lost the battle ' 20-12. Coach Rotunno's team played - heads-up ball through most of the opening two stanzas and pretty much dominated the game; but they were guUty of too many mistakes during the second half. Dexter received the opening kick-off, but lost the .bail when, on the second play, a Hornet defenseman pounced on a Dexter fumble. Taking over on the Dreadnaught's 18, Saline got to the twelve before Jim Walters Was sent in to try for a field goal. The attempt fell short. Dexter ran only two more plays before Gayle • Finkbeiner intercepted one of Tom Hoy's passes and returned it from the 35 to the 13. The Hornets had their steam up this time and couldn't be stopped. On the opening play of the series, Leidheiser clipped off seven yards of the distance to the goal. Jim Griffin sped to the one-yard line for a first down, and Leidheiser rammed over tackle to hit pay-dirt with 5:46 left in the first period. The placement try for the conversion failed. An exchange of kicks and fumbles gave Saline the baU on the Dexter 33 in the second period. Runs by Griffin, Johnson, and Leidheiser gave Saline a first down on the Dexter 23. On the next play quarterback Bill Davis connected with a sharp pass to Johnson on the right sideline. The speedy Saline halfback eluded the lone Dexter defender between him and the goal line for the second TD of the evening. Dexter took the after-TD kickoff, and in five plays were on the scoreboard. The key play in the series was one that looked Uke a Saline intercep- (Continued on Page 5) Fast footwork in the Dexter game. Hospital Display Draws Many Guesses—Some Way Out A "Birth of a Baby" display, put up by Saline Community hospital at the recent Fair, drew a lot of guesses as to the total cost of the equipment shown ~ and some of them were way, way out. The adjacent First Aid station, also provided by the hospital, attracted numerous visitors, too — some of them by necessity. Several injury cases were treated at the station; a few were rushed to the emergency room at the hospital. In the "Birth" display, prizes were offered for the two persons who guessed closest to the amount aU the displayed equipment would cost. 748 Fair visitors registered their estimates, ranging from $150 to (no kidding!) $100,000,000! But the estimates of the -two winners were only 98 cents apart. Best guess, which won a set of pots and pans for Wilma Niethammer, was $2,600.98. Se- Former Resident Mrs. Wallace Dies at 92 Word has been received here of the death of Mrs. Margret Wallace, 92, a former resident of Saline for many years. Mrs. Wallace passed away Wednesday morning at the Michigan Masonic Home at Alma, where she had lived since March, 1960. Mrs. WaUace was the oldest living member of the Presbyterian Church here, and a member of the Ladies Aid Society. She was a Past Matron and life member of Saline chapter 311, OES. She was born May 25, 1869, cond prize, a set of kitchen utensUs, went to Wanda K. Finn, who had put in. an estimate of $2,600.00. The total cost of the displayed equipment was $2,608.01. But the $2,608 figure doesn't even approach the cost of the equipment actually used in Saline Community hospital's de- Uvery room, Hospital Administrator Bob Maurer pointed out. A urological operating table was shown (cost, $303.75); a real delivery table costs $1,200. Other major equipment could not be removed from the hospi- (Continued on Page 4) always back down and surrender whenever there is a crisis; you continue to threaten and blackmail our country ~ well, Mr. K. — let us teU you a thing or two about us Americans: our spirit, our courage, our morale, and our faith; and then you can babble all you want." "Look back into our past — when, we were just a young country fighting for freedom from oppression and rule from without. We fought for an idea — the idea that freedom is the right of aU mankind, and that unjust tyranny is wrong. Think back to 1776, when we of the United States fought*with the most primitive of *m*odeni> vrea*- pons, against a nation Of much better trained, and more experienced soldiers. Think back; to that spirit of this nation — the Spirit of '76! Then think twice Gem Display Dazzles Staff And Students Elementary School teachers and students are equally goggle eyed over a display of precious and semi-precious stones on display in a case in the school entryway. More than 100 gems are included in the display, many of them are quite large. AU were provided by Herbert Newman, of 2246 MUkey Rd., a professional gem appraiser and distributor, whose son, Keith, is a third grade student here. The youngsters in that room had been studying rocks . . . but scarcely expected to see the sort of "rocks" that, Keith brought in. The gems wiU be on display at the Elementary School for about a week; after that, one wUl be sent to the Boston Museum; another is scheduled to go to Cranbrook Museum in Bloomfield HUls. , Band to Send 'Open Letter to Khrushchev9 "Mr. Khrushchev: You tell about trying to conquer us." us that our children wUl be Uv- j. «you sayj Mr. Khrushchev, ing under communism; you that our soldiers and fighting state that democracy is on its' men are weak-kneed, will run way out; you say that we wUl from your superior strength; that they wUl not have the courage to fight back against the superior numbers of your slave armies . . . ; Think back, Mr. K., to the battle of Dunkirk, the battle of the Bulge; to Bataan and Corregidor; and, yes, even to West Berlin . . . Take a good look at our courage. We are proud of our fighting men and their guts when they face an enemy. Our heroes have an inner courage — one born in tears and bathed in blood." "Look at Arlington National Cemetery and the cemeteries of the Marne, Guadalcanal, and Anzio — Those are our heroes who, gave their Uves for-their country against overwhelming odds. This is the kind of soldier you wiU be up against." "Mr. K., you boast of your great land — its resources, its abundance; and yet we know the hardships your people endure, the famines that exist, and the almost unbearable conditions of slavery. You see, we live in a land — a beautiful land, blessed above aU, and for this we are grateful. We have a heritage, a morale, which comes from living in a personal freedom that you'U never know. We have a loyalty molded in us from this wonderful land of ours.

Buck, C-0?1, Heininger Decline t@-Run Again None of Saline's three incumbent CouncUmen intends to run for another term. So far, no candidates have announced themselves for the three two-year terms now held by Orren Corl, Arthur Heininger, and John D. Buck. The terms expire January 1, and are to be fiUed in the November 7 city election. Buck, who was elected last fall for a one-year term to complete the transition from a five- to seven-man CouncU, said this week: "At the moment, I have no intention of runnnig for another term.

Local Automotive Outlook Good When the new-model cars come out each faU, SaUnians watch thei*r reception with much more keen interest than do ordinary folks. Ther*)reason: SaUne's general levelv/of business is strongly influenced by that of the autonarotive industry. When autos have a good year, so tends SaUne. So the "gate" at the local dealers' new car showings, last week and this, is being counted carefuUy for omens predicting the year ahead. • So far the omens are good. A&M Chevrolet Co. had its first showings of the 1962 Olds- mobUe and F-85 Unes last week. According to Art Moehn, president, the turnout at' the show- ings*-was extremely good. "One of the best we've ever had when Olds was showing hy itself," said he. "The real test comes this week with our introduction [of the '62 Chevrolets.; But the reception for the Olds line has 'made us very optimistic for tire * entire' model year." "" - " - * Our advance sales," and the period in our history." The story's the same J Steeb's. Last week the local Dodge dealer received shipment, of his cars for first-showing this week.
