All three categories must be judged at the county level by March 25. William Crim is the coordinator for Region 15. Police Purchase Siren, P.A.

Shelters Marked, er Consideration oososooo^ssoeoooseooosooooseosososooooesososooeog "Total Capacity: Easter Seal Proclamation 3,5 Occupants Signs went up Wednesday marking two areas in the Intermediate School as public Civil Defense shelters. Besides these two, only one other buUding in Saline could serve as a shelter, CD chairman Bob Russell said — but it is privately owned and the owner has not yet decided whether he wishes it to be marked. In any case, its "protection factor" is not high enough to warrant stocking it with supplies, RusseU added. Both shelters in the Intermediate School have a sufficiently high "protection factor" to be stocked, he said. SuppUes — water, stored food, medical supplies, etc., are provided by the federal government and wttl be instaUed "in the near future", he said. A few shelters elsewhere in the county have already been stocked. One of the shelter areas at the school has a capacity of 177 persons; the other wUl accommodate 66, RusseU said. The capacity of the contemplated shelter in the private buUding is 72 people. Tot.al of aU three would be 315. SaUne's population at present is estimated at nearly 3,000 — "which means we ought to have famUy faU-out shelters," RusseU said. Signs designating the shelters at the school were put up by Col. Gerald MiUer, county CD head, and Leo Jensen, superintendent of .SaUne schools. In other CD preparations, a group of SaUne firemen attended radiological monitoring classes in an aU-day session on a recent Sunday at the County BuUding and are now quaUfied to use the counters to be provided by the county. SaUne wttl be provided with a complete set of three radiation counters and three dosimeters, RusseU said. Those who took the course, besides RusseU, were Ray Alber, Clyde Griffin, Eugene Feuerbacher, WaUie Crosbie, and Ormond Bredernitz. WHEREAS, the annual Easter Seal Drive wiU take place in SaUne beginning March 12, 1963; and WHEREAS, the Easter Seal Society serves crippled persons, regardless of race, religion, national background, economic status, or cause of crippling; and WHEREAS, there are more than 30 crippled children and handicapped adults in Saline receiving treatment and there are many more who are awaiting rehabttitation; and WHEREAS, continuing support of the Easter Seal Society benefits the disabled right in SaUne because 90 per cent of the funds coUected remain in the SaUne area; and WHEREAS, the purposes and aims of this campaign are deserving of the support of every citizen: NOW, THEREFORE, I, Jack Bennett, Mayor of Saline, hereby proclaim MARCH as "EASTER SEAL MONTH IN SALINE" and urge that all members of this community give fuU support to this campaign to aid the handicapped.
