Restaurant Offered for imes Drive Car-Truck Collision Fatal To Son of Local Fast oi LiXS a Totes Water er Deep Freeze Saline area this week almost approached disaster status, as some residents had been without water in homes, barns, or business establishments for as much as five days. Pipes froze and refused to thaw. City crews, plumbers and welders were swamped with frantic calls for. help from housewives who couldn't do the laundry, farmers who were watering up to 60 head of cattle with buckets — and Reporter staffers who couldn't get the ink off their hands. At the west end of the city, a water main froze a week ago, leaving one residence and a service station without water during the entire period. At the other end of the city, another main burst early Monday morning - water "ran down the street like a river" while city crews rushed salt to the area to avoid creation of an unwanted skating rink. At the Reporter office, pipes had been frozen since Thursday. When they began to thaw, it was discovered that the meter had broken and the basement was flooding. City crews had also been called to thaw numerous water lines from mains to houses. A welder who thaws pipes professionally reported receiving "35 or 40" urgent calls over the week-end, one from as far away as Clinton. At the Saline Mercantile office, pipes froze for the first time in anyone's memory, although they were thawed out within hours. But if waterless housewives were harassed, farmers were DRIVER SLIGHTLY ESTpJURED AND FROSTBITTEN BESIDES Donald J. Trumble, of 118 Tower Dr., was treated at Saline Community hospital and released early Thursday morning after his car was sent out of control by drifting snow and skidded into'a ditch on Wagner road, at 4 a.m. Trumble suffered a neck injury in the accident . . . and a frostbitten ear afterward, when he walked for 45 minutes in the 20-below-zero cold to get help. deeply worried. Many were watering their stock with hoses from the house (frequently across the road), which meant they must take time to drain the hose after each watering lest it freeze, too. One farmer reported frozen water pipes more than four feet underground. Nor was any saving thaw predicted. Weathermen unanimously predicted a new wave of record-breaking cold. Dress Children More Warmly, Schools Urge School officials today expressed "concern" that many children are being sent to school inadequately dressed for the' subzero temperatures, and urged parents to be sure the youngsters are more warmly clad. Said Intermediate School Principal Dwight Reynolds: "I see children come dressed in light coats; no galoshes, just little shoes; and little skirts oviar bare legs. They have no mittens, no hats." The light clothing could create serious difficulty if a bus should break down, he pointed out. "We had a bus stuck for 15 minutes Monday morning. That wasn't long enough to cause trouble, but suppose it had been stuck for an extended period! The heaters are not designed for subzero temperatures and they quit if the motor quits." He is especially concerned about the younger children, he said. At the Elementary School, Principal Marian Barclay agreed but pointed out that teachers send lightly clad children to the office, where they pare supplied with necessary hats, mittens, scarves, etc., from the lost and found departmpant. Children are not sent out for recess at the Elementary School unless the temperature is plus- twenty or higher . . . though, due to restlessness, they were taken for a quick walk (three or four minutes) around' the court Monday morning, Mrs. Barclay said. New Equipment For Hospital Purchased in '62 New equipment at Saline Community hospital during the past year has included: A sewing machine. This, explains Administrator Bob Maurer, "keeps linens in shape and saves the extra expense of buying some ready made cloth items which we can make ourselves." Two new cold steam vaporizers for "youngsters with difficult bronchial conditions or pneumonia cases." A Gordon-Armstrong Isolette incubator, costing $850, a gift from the Sahne Community hospital auxiliary, purchased with funds from their smorgasbord-card party. "An excellent addition to the obstetrical unit for the safety of our newborn," said Maurer. An automatic tournequet, for surgery on hands, feet, arms and legs, for $200 from the Fun club. A Duke inhalor, for use in the labor room and delivery room. "Many and varied surgical instruments purchased to increase surgical abilities of the hospital." Soon to be purchased, Maurer said, are a combination oxygen and high-humidity tent costing $895, and an Electrodyne- External Defibrillator for use in averting cardiac arrest, and heart fibrillation in either the operating room or for bed patients. Washtenaw Conference To Split Up The four-year-old Washtenaw interscholastic athletic conference will break up before September, 1964, and the now-participating schools will re-align themselves in other leagues. Cause of the readjustment is the divergence in size of the schools, Saline athletic director Howard Hill said ~ the same reason that resulted in formation of the Washtenaw League in 1959, when Saline, Chelsea, University High, and Ypsilanti Roosevelt left the Huron lieagu'e to band with Pinckney, Manchester and Dexter. The latter three had been part of he League of the Lakes group. Since that time, Saline and Chelsea have become class B schools (over 400 students). The others have not. Formation of a new conference was announced this week, to include U-High, Clinton, Manchester, Roosevelt, Whitmore Lake, plus Brooklyn and Grass Lake. This leaves only Chelsea, Saline, Dexter and Pinckney in the Washtenaw loop. The remaining Washtenaw league schools have made no plans as yet for creation of another conference, Hill said. "We have to do something but we haven't done it yet. We'll try to see if we can get some teams. Time will tell." The four will meet in February to initiate discussion of the matter, he said. "We hope to have some sort of plans by the end of this year. But meanwhile, we still have the rest of this year and next year to operate as' before." The use of the Dug-Out Restaurant, on N. Ann Arbor st., has been donated for the benefit of the March of Dimes all day Saturday, Mrs. Herman Radloff, Saline chairman, announced today. The owners of the restaurant, Mr. and Mrs. Romeo Trogu, have offered to furnish all necessities except pies, Mrs. Radloff said, and these will be baked by members of the March of Dimes committee. All chairmen of the March of Dimes Squadron will work on the project, to serve breakfast, lunch, snack, or supper at the restaurant; . and all proceeds will go to the March of Dimes. Also scheduled Saturday night is a benefit OES card party, to which the public is invited. Donations are 50 cents a person, to play any type of cards at the event, beginning at 8 p.m. at the hall. Mrs. John Thoss is chairman. Total contributions to the city campaign so far have reached $1,688.06 - including $794.93 brought in by the Mothers' march in the city Tuesday night. Last year's March produced only $678 . . . this year's figure was swelled by one individual contribution of $100. The $794.93 includes a partial return from Saline township, where Mrs. David Gordon is chairman. In Lodi township, the Mothers' March was not quite completed since campaigners were slowed by drifted driveways and bitter weather. A total of $244 had been turned in Wednesday to Mrs. William Spike, chairman. March of Dimes benefits in the city during the past week have included a coffee hour at the home of Mrs. Jerome Lamb, a coffee hour given by Mrs. Maurice Levleit, and a benefit euchre party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Armbruster. Alumni trimmed a teachers' team in a benefit basketball game, followed by a record hop at the high school last week. Proceeds from the event were $82.50. A young man hurrying to visit an injured friend lost his life when the car above crashed into the rear of a badly- lighted truck on US-12 Saturday evening. Paul T. Engel, 21, son of the pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, died two hours after the collision, at University Medical Center. The truck driver and a passenger received injuries described as "not serious". ouse rire Ri Rotarians to See Color Slides on Islands ~ Regardless Saline Rotarians, who may have had it with the hardest winter in years, will find a vicarious thaw at their Thursday noon meeting at St. Paul Church . . . the program consists of color slides of the South Pacific. Says program chairman Paul Tull: "These are some slides I took in the South Paciifc during the war. For 20 years I've lived a life of frustration because — whenever we invited someone over"" for the evening and announced that we were going to show pictures — they always remember that the house was burning down when they left home and they had to leave right away." ", "But now," he added, "I've got a captive audience. It's cold outside, and we'll have the preacher lock all the doors . . . I'm finally going to show somebody, those pictures." ATTEND FARMERS' DAY Ermine Finkbeiner, John Marion and Dale Sweetland attended Farmers' Day in Lansing Wednesday. METHODIST CHICLES TO MEET TUESDAY The Methodist Church Circle meetings will be held, Tuesday, February 5, at the following times and places: Dorcas at 1:30 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Harold Smith, 324 Highland Dr. Esther at 8 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Alwin Gross, 214 S.

Man Burned In H "Doing Well" A former Saline resident who suffered serious burns in a fire at his home Friday was reported "doing well" at St. Joseph Mercy hospital today. Edward Lauhon, 42, of 58 Cavanaugh Lake Rd., Sylvan town- ship, suffered second degree burns over 15 per cent of his body, when he started a fire in his fireplace and it flared up suddenly, setting his clothes aflame. His wife, who was in the basement of the brick and frame residence, came to his aid and smothered the flames in his clothes with a blanket. The couple escaped the blazing house, but it was completely gutted before firemen from three departments could bring the fire, under control. Besides the structural damage, all contents were destroyed. Five fire trucks and 28 men from Chelsea, Dexter, and Manchester were at the scene. Lauhon was taken to the hospital by a neighbor. He is in room 7045 there, and expects to remain for a week or more. The Lauhons lived in Saline until they moved to the Cavanaugh Lake residence about four years ago. Paul Engel KIWANIANS HEAR DISTRICT SPEAKER Jack Thompson, lieutenant governor of district six v of the Kiwanis club, was the speaker at the regular meeting of the local club Monday evening at Marty's Restaurant. Thompson spoke on the club's 1963 theme, "Responsibility, the Key to Freedom", and also announced that the Kiwanis organization is chartering clubs in London, Paris, Zurich and Copenhagen. Medical patients at Saline Community Hospital this week include Mrs. Robert Webster, jr., of N. Maple Rd., and Herman Guenther of Parker Rd.

Enge!? 21 Funeral services were held here Wednesday afternoon for Paul Theodore Engel, 21, the son of the Rev. and Mrs. H. L. Engel, who died Saturday night shortly after his car crashed into the back of a badly lighted pick-up truck on US-12 west of Saline. The accident occurred about 8:30 p.m. as he was on his way to Tecumseh, concerned about the welfare of a friend who was ill. Indications were that he never saw the truck — witnesses who saw it pass through Saline, just before the crash, noted that its tail lights were idim and nearly indistinguishable. The other driver, Herbert A. Asberry, 54, of Horton, Mich., and his wife were treated at Herrick Memorial hospital in Tecumseh for injuries reported to be minor. Paul was taken to the University Medical Center, where he died about 11 pjn. News of the tragedy came to his family only hours after they learned of another accident in which the Engels' son-in-law, Gerald Snyder, suffered serious face injuries near his home in Bridgman, Mich. Details of the. Bridgman crash are not known to the family here, except that it was a car- truck collision on a slippery road Saturday aJiernoon. Snyder was taken to Memorial hospital in St. Joseph, where he is reported "improving". Mrs. Snyder, the former Anita Engel, came lo Saline Wed- nesday only long enouglj to attend the funeral services*for her brother, before returning to her husband's bedside. Snyder is a teacher (math and social sciences) and coach at Bridgman High School. Paul Engel was born February 15, 1941, in Saline, the son of the Rev. H. L. and Mrs. Amelia Schmiege Engel. Both parents survive. He attended the first five grades of school at Redeemer Lutheran in Ann Arbor, but enrolled in the Saline schools for grades six, seven and eight, and had many friends here. He then completed his schooling at Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw, where he was a star member of the football team, participating .also in basketball, baseball, and track. He was on the honor roll there, and graduated in 1959. He was active in youth work, both as a leader cf the Young People's Society of Trinity Lutheran Church here (later, he joined the Men's Club of the church), and as a leader of a local automobile club designed to emphasize safety and mechanical know-how. He liked and understood cars; his Corvette was equippt?d with safety belts, though state police said he apparently was not using one at the time of the crash. He went on at least one Saline High School-sponsored Michigan award trip at the request of school officials, to assist with supervision because "he was a good leader of childrKi". He was employed by the Deede Television Service in Saline for a short time, and since then has been employed by the Wedemeyer Electronic Supply Co. of Ann Arbcir, where he recently received a promotion. Survivors in addition to his parents are two sisters, Mrs. Snyder of Bridgman, and Karol Ann at home; maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schmiege of Chesaning; six aunts; six uncles; one nephew; and many cousins. Funeral services were at Trinity Lutheran -Church. Liturgical services were conducted by the Rev. Norman Berg of Plymouth, president of the Michigan District of the Wisconsin Synod. The Rev. A. G. Wacker of Saline deliverd the siannon. Intenmaat was in Oakwood cemetery. The Rev. G. L. Press of Wayne conducted committal services.
