Local Safety Patroller to Get- Washington Trip Saline is among 103 Michigan communities to be represented by outstanding safety patrol members at the 27th National Patrol Rally in Washington, D.C., May 9 - 12, it was announced today by Automobile Club of Michigan. Representing Saline will be fourth-grader Jean Herter, lieutenant of safety patrols at the Elementary School, and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Herter of Pleasant Lake road. She will be the first Saline child ever to make the trip; this is the first year Saline schools have been named to send a delegate. "The Michigan delegation will be made up of about 130 safety patrol boys and girls, one of the largest ever sent to the rally from the state," said Ernest P. Davis, Auto Club director of safety and traffic. "Auto Club is now in process of selecting the schools that will provide representatives on the 4-day all-expense-paid trip as guests of the Club," said Davis. "Schools are selected on the basis of their patrols' general performance and efficiency, and they then have the honor of nominating their outstanding patroller to attend." The youngsters will gather in Detroit on Thursday, May 9, where they will board a fleet of chartered buses for the trip to Washington. Although the climax to the rally will be reached at the huge parade on Saturday, May 11, youngsters making the trip from Michigan will be kept busy visiting national shrines and historical attractions in and around the nation's capital, said Davis. PLAYS IN HONORS BAND Barbara Hehr, dau'ghter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hehr, spent the weekend at Central Michigan university where she played with the Honors Band made up of 150 young musicians from all over Michigan who won "first division" ratings for the solos in recent district contests.

Annual Jaycee Easter Egg Hunt Planned The annual Jaycee-sponsored Easter Egg hunt for local children has been scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday at Curtiss Park. The hunt is open without charge to children aged two through 12, but "it is hoped they will be accompanied by an adult", Bob Louden, chairman, said. Eggs for the occasion have been donated by Klager Hatchery and will be dyed by the Jaycees and their wives. Prizes, for children who find the lucky "golden eggs", have been donated by local merchants. Children will be divided into three age groups, to hunt in three areas: ages two to four, ages five to seven, and ages eight to 12. The hidden eggs will be of both the hard boiled and candy variety. Louden's committee of Jaycees working on the project includes "practically everybody", he said.

Local Students Win Awards for Short Stories Three local students have won high awards for their short stories, in a writing contest sponsored annually by the Detroit News. They competed in a field of more than 10,500 entries submitted by students in Washtenaw and four surrounding counties. Janet Kohler, a student in the seventh grade, won first place and an achievement key for her story, "Falling, Falling, Falling". Another seventh-grader, Marjorie Quick, won second place and honorable mention for a story, "Round Fifteen". Both entries were in the junior division; some of the work- "was done in a creative writing class taught here by Ann Pellegreno. About 20 members of the class submitted entries in the contest. In the senior division, High School senior Donald Dechert won second place and honorable mention for a story, "The Empty Sky", written with the assistance of Larry Brown, English teacher. The three winners received congratulatory letters and an invitation to receive their awards at a formal presentation in Detroit on May 15. Knitting was NEVER like this! At least, not until hoys in the Intermediate School got curious about the knitting the girls did in home economics class, and cadged Maxine Ross into letting them try it, in art class. Most of them completed the hats in time to keep their ears warm ... a few are still diligently knitting. But, what the heck, it's spring; hats won't be needed till next year. MOTHER, DAUGHTER ATTEND STATE LIBRARY CONFERENCE Mrs. Don Campbell, librarian at Saline High School, and her daughter, Jane, attended the annual conference of the Michigan Association of School Librarians, in Ann Arbor Saturday. Miss Campbell came home for the weekend for the event, from Western Michigan university where she is studying for a master's degree in library science.

CHILD STUDY CLUB TO MEET APRIL 16 The Saline Child Study Club will meet at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at the home of Mrs. Edward Komorowski on Lawson St. Detective Lt.

QUESTION: How do you feel about mothers working at jobs outside of their homes? Judy Alpha, 16 - I think it's bad. A mother's place is in the home with her children. If youngsters don't have their mothers around, they keep their problems inside themselves because they have no one to talk to. A mother is the pillar that holds the home together. Myrna Cay Griffin, 12 - I think it's a good idea for mothers to stay home while their children are little. It's all right for them to work later on as the children get older. David Johnson, 12 - Well, you take our family — I'm the youngest and having my mother work doesn't seem to cause too much of an emotional problem. I think smaller children need a lot of love and attention and if they don't have their mother around they may get off on the wrong track and even become juvenile delinquents because of a lack of love and attention. Kathie Reed, 17 - I'm very glad my mother doesn't! LesUe Katz, 16 - I don't think it's good, but if I evpar get married I probably will work. Claudia Scruggs, 11 ~ Mothers should be at'Jhome during the day lantil the children are .able to take care of themselves. Dennis Rogers, 16 - It's all right if' it's really necessary. And I think it also depends on the kind of job the mother has. Sally Heiserman, 12 - They shouldn't if the children are young. Little ciiildren n«3ed their mothers with them, es- pecially when emergencies arise. Pat Fischer, 17 - I like to have my mom at home. After the kids are out of high school and more or less on their own it's all right for mothers to take a job. Billy Cammet, 15-- WeU, I tliink it's aU right as long as their hours make it possible for them to be home when their cliildren are. They should wait until their children are old enough to go to school. Kathy Mader, 12 - If they have small childr.en, they should not work; if their children are school-age and older it's all right, as long as they can work at a job and stiU be a good mother. Bobby Tefft, 16 ~ I feel that if it is a necessity, they should wox-k; otherwise, they should remain at home, especiaUy if they have smaU children. After the children are in school, it's O.K. if they want to go to work to help put a child through school. Hornets to Open Diamond Season Here Tuesday Baseball action for Hornet fans starts next Tuesday with a game on home ground against Dexter. The first baU wiU be thrown in at 4 p.m. at the high school athletic field, for the first test in battle for a Dubats- coached team.
