Peace and progress marked 1963 in the Saline area, and the last joint community activity, a bond issue election, promised still better for 1964. Growth was 'the predominant theme for 1963. A whole new subdivision, Crestwood Knolls, was filled with new residents. Businesses changed hands, expanded, and announced plans for new buildings. Construction was started on a new, fully modern building for the Saline Savings Bank and on a new site for the Saline Hotel Restaurant. Plans were completed for an expansion of the hospital, Ito be started next year; and first individual homes at the Meha village site were likely to go up in the spring. Other innovations promised for 1964 were brighter lighting for the downtown area in Saline, and a second municipal parking lot. Then there would be the sewer plant expansion, new waiter tower, and extension of water and sewer services ap- Area to Welcome Firstborn of 1964 With Gift Array It's almost time for the arrival of a special newcomer in the Saline area . . . "Miss 1964" or "Mr. 1964", the first baby of the new year. Whoever he or she is, the infant will be the winner of numerous gifts from local businessmen, just by arriving at the right time. The lucky child, boy or girl, will be the first born after the stroke of midnight on January 1, whose parents live in the Saline area school district. For some reason, in past years, there have been far more Misses than Misters . . . and some of 'the tiny debutantes were incubator babies. But this time, the community may welcome a husky, roistering "Mr. 1964". Whichever it is, many of the little newcomer's needs will be provided, from announcements to a savings account, not forgetting clothing, food, .and other necessities. Details, contest rules, and an entry blank will be found on page two of this issue. proved by voters in the special election on the bond issue. There was talk of a 26-unit apartment building on one side of the city, and a smaller apartment building on the other. Curtiss Park was slated for development 'too, to begin next year and continue over a period of several years. During the year we lost a number of beloved and respected neighbors: William Harwood, Paul Engel, Fredericka McBride (at the venerable age of 102), Elmer Houghton, and Micah Robison among them. But we gained new neighbors by the score, and Salinians went right on getting married, having babies, celebrating anniversaries. The young pedple continued /to disfdnguish themselves, at the first local Science Fair and the Southeastern Michigan Science Fair, at the State 4-H Show, the Detroit Junior Livestock Show, the national FFA convention (one member, Stan P o e ft, received the American Farmer degree). Saline students held district office in many organizations; the Hornets won their fourth All-Sports trophy; and the Band took a first in the State Band Festival. Scholarships rolled in, ttoo; and Salinians were listed on'5 both high school and college honor rolls. Many of them travelled; dozens of youngsters went to Europe, sponsored by various youth programs. The city's perennial parking meter uproar died down and the sidewalk hassle was settled (at least for the time being), and the main Ifchoroughfare was widened and resurfaced without losing the trees. "MISS 1963" IS BEGINNING TO WALK Nora Jane Brillhart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norris Brillhart, of N. Harris St., is now approaching one year old and beginning to walk around in her play pen. •Nora Jane ("Janie" to her family) was the area's first baby of 1963; she arrived weighing only three pounds, four ounces, and spent the first two months of her life in an incubator. Now, she weighs 17 pounds.
