11 4 * The Saline Reporter VOLUME 15, NUMBER 6 - WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1961 'First With Allthe Local News' 10c PER COPY — $3 PEE YEAR n HOSPITAL EXPANSION TO 50 BEDS APPRO United Fund Campaign Opens Organization Completed at Kick-off Meet With a goal of $10,750, Saline area United Fund campaign for 1961-62 got off to a flying start today after a UDC-sponsored kick-off dinner at the American Legion hall Tuesday night. Workers set off on their rounds with some statistics provided by UF board president Bob Harrison: There are 1,955 families in the Saline area. If the quota is divided by the number of families, the average needed from each family is $3.45. Said Harrison, "If each family gives the average, we'll make it . . . but $1 is not sufficient to do the job. It will take $3.45." More statistics: In the past, 62 per cent of the quota has been given by individuals and families, the remainder by business and industry. Said Harrison: "With more families moving into the area all the time, that amount should go up." If families this year give 62 per cent of the amount needed, they will provide $6,665. Organization of the drive was completed with the announcement of all area chairmen: CITY: Southeast area, Jim Ford; northwest, Mrs. Everett Esch; northeast, Mrs. Don Leidheiser. ^The southwest section will be handled by the Business and Professional Women's club as a community project.

Thieves Loot Elementary School of $55 Thieves who apparently hid in the Elementary School until ! everyone had gone home Tuesday night looted the office and teachers' desks of approximately $55, Police Chief Earl Kirby said today. ; Eight rooms were ransacked and littered with papers pulled from the teachers' desks. Of the estimated $55 taken, $36 was from the office. A lock was broken on the door of one room, Kirby said, but the other rooms had not been locked. There was no evidence of forcible entry to the school itself, he said. A "good collection of fingerprints" indicates the culprits were not small children, Kirby said. They may have been teenagers or young adults. The robbery was discovered at 7 a.m. today by Maurice Henderson, school custodian, when he went to work. No vandalism occurred except that incidental to the search for money, Kirby-said.

Hornets Romp Past Roosevelt by 34-19 by Lanny Robbins Saturday evening S a 1 i n e' s Hornets continued their rise in Washtenaw Conference standings, climbing-to a fourth place tie with Chelsea after defeating Roosevelt 34-19. Fired up for the contest, the Hornets were never in real danger of losing after the first quarter. Scoring each time they had the ball, Saline had a pair of TD's before Roosevelt pushed the ball across the goal line, and came back right after that for another one. Saline received the opening kick and returned it to the 23. On the first play from scrimmage, half back Jim Griffin broke loose around right end and scampered to the 40. A pass from Bill Davis to Jerry McDonald moved the ball to Roosevelt's 42; an aerial from Davis to Griffin advanced the Hornets to the 21. Dick Leidheiser made the carry over the goal line for the first score, and Leidheiser made the extra point with a run off left tackle. Roosevelt was held to nine yardsjgained after the kick and were forced to punt after a fourth down offsides penalty. The punt went out of bounds at the Saline 47. . A backfield in motion penalty cost the Hornets five yards on the first play of the series. Griffin then made up part of the distance with a left end run of six yards. An incompleted pass from Davis to Starit almost ended the drive at 3rd and nine to go. But this time the Griffin to quarterback Davis pass clicked and Davis pushed to the Roughriders' five and passed to Mike Johnson for the score; Leidheiser ran the conversion over left tackle. Speedy Jim Herndon played the major role in Roosevelt's first scoring drive. After ten plays he clipped off the distance around right end for the tally, but "was stopped on the conversion attempt. After Gayle Finkbeiner's kick return to Roosevelt's 44, Saline needed only eight plays to cross the goal line again. The key play in the series was Gary Kind's pass to Griffin for a gain from the 25 to the three. Leidheiser rammed over center to the oiie, and Griffin punched out the remainder off right tackle to hit paydirt with 8:51 left in the first half. Griffin was stopped on the extra point try; leaving Saline in a 20-6 lead. The host Roughriders came back from their own 47 with a running attack into the line for short gains that gave them their second TD with 1:25 left before half-time. Herndon ran the conversion. After half-time, a fumble recovery on Roosevelt's 43 put the Hornets in scoring range. On the second play, Griffin .threw :to Davis-for a gain to the 15. A pair of short runs by Griffin picked up the first down on the four. Davis took the ball over on a quarterback sneak. Roosevelt's next drive ground to a stop on Saline's 27 with an incomplete pass. Rick Johnson smashed off left tackle to the 31, and from there Griffin dashed the remaining distance for 69 yards and the score. Griffin ran the PAT as well. Roosevelt picked up the final score of the evening with 1:28 left as Herndon scored around left end from the three.

The "hospital building committee, headed by Stanton Roesch, advised increasing facilities by 22 beds, on the premise that a 50-bed hospital is the minimum size for economic operation. Actual construction is not scheduled to begin until September, 1963, but the hospital board expects to begin planning immediately. Said Ernest Girbach, president of the hospital board, "The community is growing so fast that we need the expansion so that we can take care of the people. It will take three years, at least, if we get architectural plans started now. It also will take a year to build." Girbach added: "We have a need now for more rooms at some times. We are not full at all times, but there have been times when we've been overflowing. Twenty-eight beds are not sufficient for this community because it doesn't allow enough variation in rooms." The present hospital has only one ward, which means that ~ if it has one patient —' no other- ward patients of the opposite sex can be accepted. There is no children's ward. Said Girbach: "We need three wards. Even two would be better than this." He said: "We might have 20 or 25 patients for the general ward (only 18 beds) and the OB wing empty. You actually have two hospitals , . . OB and general; one can overflow "but you can't put patients in the other." There would be more flexibility in, use of rooms in a 50-bed hospital, he said. All of the additional 22 rooms would be for general medical-surgical use. Of his committee's recommendation, Roesch said: "The hospital, now, is barely keeping its head above water financially. Nationwide statistics show that a 50-bed hospital is the minimum hospital that makes money. This year we did much better than last year, but we still lost money." "In a rapidly expanding community, we will have an urgent need for the added room by the time it is completed," he said. The committee recommended that the expansion take the form of an added wing on the southwest of the present hospital, to include a basement as well as ground floor. They also recommended that the addition be designed so as to permit its use as a maternity wing, "at which time the present maternity facilities would be converted to use as a surgical wing." Cost estimates on the proposed expansion would not be possible until more concrete plans were drawn, the board decided. JAYCEE AUXILIARY ADDS THREE MEMBERS-^ Three new names were added to the roster of the newly reorganized Junior Chamber of Commerce Auxiliary at a membership meeting Tuesday night: Mrs. William Meister, Jr., Mrs. Phil Badour, and Mrs. Donald MeKenzie. The group also approved a. budget, community service projects, and agenda for the coming year.
