The Saline Reporter VOLUME 15, NUMBER 12 ~ WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1962 10c PER COPY — 53 PER YEAR Festive Season Opens Soon Santa to Appear On Friday Nights And Saturdays The man with the whiskers (and we don't mean Castro) will come back to Saline this Saturday. Santa Claus, most popular man in town, will arrive with appropriate fanfare at 2 p.m., loaded with hcird-rock candy for the youngsters, and ready to hear their wishes for the 25th. In a special deal with St. Nick this year, Saline Chamber of Commerce persuaded him to spend Friday nights, as well as the usual Saturday afternoons, here in the downtown area. The first Friday visit is scheduled for 7 p.m., December 14 . . . and there'll be another on the 21st. Instead of setting up headquarters in the board room at Saline Savings Bank, as in the past, Santa this year will spend all his time holding court in stores along the main drag. Other special Yule activities which get started this week in Saline: Merchants will again pass out chance tickets for prizes to be awarded Saturday night, December 22. The awards: Four $5 purchase certificates, to be given to the two winning boys and the two winning girls. Santa's mailbox will again be in place to receive letters from the youngsters. All such letters will be promptly answered, and the answers wUl also contain chance tickets for those prizes. Next week the downtown area will start special evening shopping hours. Many stores will stay open until 9 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. And the following week, December 17 through 22, most stores will keep their doors open every night. Three Salinians Gain Citizenship Three Saline residents were among 39 persons from 13 countries who were admitted to citizenship last week in Washtenaw county Circuit court by Judge William J. Weipert, Jr., of Monroe. Johannes E. Franz, an electrical engineer employed at Uni- loy division of Hoover Ball and Bearing co., and his wife, Amelia, became U.S. citizens at the ceremony. Both are formerly of Germany. Also admitted to citizenship was Vincent Catacuzzeno, of Saline, x-ray technician at SaUne Community hospital, from 'Italy. rove o 'Over the Top1 Obviously in worse need of a haircut than the astonished boy in the chair, Santa Claus waits his turn to be tidied up in time for his appearance in downtown Saline, Friday night and Saturday. The old fellow politely declined a shave, on the grounds that his chin would get cold. The youngster is from Manchester. Hornets Drop First Conference Battle Family Recovers After Illness from Carbon Monoxide Mrs. James Gilbee and her five children were reported recovered this week after the whole family became violently ill from carbon monoxide poisoning at their Spring street home. The father of the family was at work in Ann Arbor when the incident occurred, late last Monday night, and only the prompt action of neighbors prevented disaster. Mrs. Gilbee was unaware of the odorless carbon monoxide fumes in her home, resulting from a clogged chimney, until one of the children became unable to walk. Others complained of headaches and illness, she said, and she herself was barely able to reach the home of neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Wallie Crosbie, to ask for aid. The Crosbies rushed to the Gilbee home to rescue the children (with difficulty, since Wal- lie's arm is still in a cast from an accident at work), and then called a local physician to treat them. The youngsters, ranging from first grade down, in age, include, Donna, Jimmy, Mary, Jeff, and five-months-old Glenn. The family was then taken to the home of relatives in Ann Arbor. Formerly Salinians, the Gil- bees had lived for a time in Dexter, and had just moved back into the Spring street house when the accident occurred. PAST MATRONS PLAN CHRISTMAS PARTY The Past Matrons club of Saline Chapter 311, O.E.S., will hold its Christmas party and dinner Monday, December 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the Methodist Church parlor. FAIR BOARD TO MEET The Saline Community Fair board will hold its annual meeting on December 10 at 8:30 p.m. in the agricultural room at the High School. Annual reports will be given and officers for the coming year will be elected. by Lanny Robbins First Night's Results: Dexter, 54; Saline, 38 Chelsea, 53; Roosevelt, 40 Manchester, 55; Pinckney, 48 U-High, 63; Clinton, 33 Every once in .a while there's a night in the fortunes of even the finest teams that coaches, players, and spectators alike would just as soon completely forget. Such was the case at Dexter Friday evening as Don Jaeger's Hornets, hoping to launch a drive for their fourth consecutive Washtenaw conference basketball championship, became victims of an upset- minded bunch of Dreadnaughts. In a game that should have been a fairly equal contest between the Hornets' speed and the Dexter quintet's height, the Dreadnaughts pretty well made good use of their tall men, while the famed Saline press and fast break never quite got off the ground. The result was a 54-38 victory for Dexter. An overpowering start, plus refusal to fall into the trap of Saline's running game during the third period, was the key to the upset. In the opening minutes of the contest, Dexter began hitting from outside and built a solid lead that the Hornets were never able to cut down. With the game almost three minutes old and Dexter in a 6-1 lead, the Hornets collected their first basket on an outside jump shot by Ron Tucker. Dexter scored twice, on a lay-up by Nick Heller and a long shot by Doug Dunham, before Mike Johnson swished the second Saline basket of the night. For the next two minutes, both teams spent most of their time at the free throw line as Saline committeed four personals and Dexter two. Even at the bonus line, the Dreadnaughts came out ahead and by the time the first quarter ended, they were in command of a 19-8 lead after a pair of quick lay-ups oy Heller. In the second period, heads- up play by Jim Griffin and Mike Johnson cut the Dexter avalanche briefly. Johnson hit on a jumper from close in, and Griffin picked up a pair of lay- ups after stealing the ball, to make it 21-14. From then on the Dreadnaughts sailed away on charity tosses by Heller and Dunham, to a 28-15 margin before Johnson banged in another basket and Keck chipped in with a two- pointer. Each team tallied ano- ther basket before half-time, Saline on Armbruster's try and Dexter on Gordy Deylin's fast break, for a half-time score of 33-22. In the third period, fearing Saline's famed comeback, the Dexter quintet went into a slowdown stall to frustrate the Hor nets. It saved the contest for the Dreadnaughts, who out- scored the Hornets 7-3, after Kind hit on the only one of Saline's 17 shots to go through the hoop during that quarter. In the final period, Jeager benched most of his first unit to give his second team more playing experience. The second team held the Dreadnaughts to a 21-13 scoring difference for the final stanza. In double figures for Dexter were Nick Heller with 13 points and Doug Dunham, who led the evening's scoring with 15. High scorer for Saline was Gary Kind, followed "by Johnson with seven, Armbruster with five, and Tucker, Griffin and Keck with four each. Engelbert had three. Two Charged With Larceny From Auto Two young men, who pleaded guilty to charges of larceny from an auto, are scheduled for sentencing Thursday, December 13, in Justice of the Peace Court here. The youths, both of whom posted $50 bond, were arrested early Thursday by Saline police who saw them walking east on Michigan avenue at Whitlock street and stopped them for questioning. James J. Dumont, 19, of Pittsburgh, Pa., and John M. Fundukian, 21, of South- field, said they had heard something drop from their car and were walking back to see what it was. Police roused the owner of a nearby service station, Ted Hill, to check his premises. It was discovered that a radio was missing from a Volkswagen parked outside. After questioning, the two men showed police where the radio was hidden, in the bushes across the road, police said. Local police Monday afternoon also arrested Gary Lee Keehl, 18, of Manchester, as a fugitive wanted for grand larceny by state police of the Clinton post.- Keehl is alleged to have taken $190 hidden in a service station while the owner was waiting on a customer. He will be tried in Lenawee county. Mrs. Radloff To Head '63 Dimes Drive Mrs. Herman Radloff, of 277 W. Bennett St., has been named as Saline area campaign director of the 1963 New March of Dimes drive. Although the drive is hot scheduled to begin until after the first of the year, Mrs. Radloff and her committee chairmen met Wednesday morning to plan the campaign. Chairmen who will aid in the drive in this area include Mrs. Jerome Lamb, special events; Mrs. Oscar Ferguson, clubs and organizations; Mrs. David Cobb, businesses and corporations; Mrs. William Lawrence, the annual Mothers' March. Mrs. Douglas Elfring will chairman the Saline Jaycee Auxiliary, who will put out mailers; Mrs. Donald Leidheiser, the High School collections; Mrs. Douglas Hoeft, all bowling events; and-Mrs. -W. W. Crosbie, dimes boards and coin collectors. County chairman for the 1963 drive is Mrs. A. J. Coudron, Ann Arbor, who distributed supplies for the campaign last week.

This year it will support varied programs: funds for research into the causes of arthritis and birth defects; money to finance polio vaccination activities; and funds for the newly established Salk Institute of Biological Studies. PLANNING COMMISSION CHAIRMAN RESIGNS Jack Craigmile, chairman of the city planning commission, has resigned "due to the increase in the office work load and assuming partnership responsibilities" in his firm. Council Monday accepted his resignation, effective January 1, and "gratefully expressed Council's appreciation for services performed for the city". No replacement has yet been appointed to complete Craig- mile's term, which runs until July.

Behind the corpse are (left to right) Mike Johnson, Dave Hollenback, Mary Jane Schumacher, Georgia Burg, and Bruce Carr. Alongside it are Susan Beck, Keith Armbruster, and Vicky Hill.

The letter came from Ernest J. Hall, of Union Lake, Mich., a developer who sought information on possible annexation, water and sewer possibilities, tap- in fees, and tax rates. He said he was interested in 100 acres of the Ferry property west of town, and 25 adjoining acres along the river. Hall said he was considering two to 2%-acre lots along the river and - in the other area — nothing under 1,200 square feet and up to 1,800 square feet. This would put the homes at an $18,000 minimum, he said, but the majority would sell for $25,000 and up. He would build ranch homes, colonials, split-levels and — possibly — apartments in one area, he said. He added that he is not considering FHA financing since he expects to get "very good terms on the conventional basis". The development would take about three years to complete, he added. Boiler Room Floods; School Dismissed Saline High School students got an unscheduled holiday Friday when they arrived to find the school without either heat or lights, and boiler room and tunnels flooded with two feet of water. The flooding occurred when a shut-off valve stuck and allowed water to continue to pour through the boiler, Superintendent Leo Jensen said. At the same time, the sump pump failed. Electricity was turned off as a safety measure. Students and teachers went Christmas shopping, while city crews pumped the water out so that repairs could be made. Contributions Now Stand at 98 Percent The Saline area United Fund will go over the top, and the drive is to be closed Thursday evening, Herman Merte, chairman of the campaign, announced today. The drive, for $11,209, stood at 98 per cent Wednesday, only $200 short of its goal, and "we have been informed of money coming in which should guarantee to push it over the top," Merte said. The United Fund board Will meet Thursday evening "to establish the close of the drive," he said. Only three solicitors have not successfully completed all contacts, he said, and "this, with over 130 solicitors working, is a commendable record". He commented on the effectiveness of advising persons not contacted to take the initiative in forwarding their contributions. Calls were received from six such contributors, he reported, and one woman said the money was "burning a ?iole in her purse", since she was personally aware of the need and benefits of contributions to the United Fund. Her daughter is a nurse in a hospital where much-needed medical research is supported by the United Fund. The $11,209 goal represents a 3% per cent increase over last year's total, but a 14% percent increase for local agencies participating: Saline recreation, Saline area Social Service, the Sahne Library, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Brownies. Area and state agencies benefiting from the drive include the American Red Cross, Michigan United Fund, the Portage Trails Boy Scout Council, Huron Valley Girl Scout Council, the Salvation Army, Huron Valley Child Guidance Clinic, and the Washtenaw county Association for Retarded .Children. Council Tables Sidewalk Letter Council Monday night acknowledged and tabled "until December 10 a letter from Hazen Jewell stating that he had contracted for construction of his own sidewalk. The walk, to city specifications, will be installed in the spring, he said. -•* • Jewell is one of the property- owners in special assessment district 40-A (Russell street) for which procedures have already been started. Two of the necessary resolutions were passed Novembr 26, and a hearing on the spread of the assessment is scheduled December 17. Legionnaires Saturday joyfully burned the mortgage, with pomp, fanfare, a formal dinner, and speeches at the now fully-paid-for Legion Memorial hall. The building was completed and dedicated in 1949. Above, the burning ceremony is supervised by Ben Uphaus, who was commander of the post when the land was purchased, and Ralph Bowen, ■the present commander. Legion Auxiliary members also participated in the program.
