In fact, it has been reduced by slightly more, than that: from $108,350.16 to $52,428.75. The information was released in financial statements prepared for a public hearing on the school budget, Wednesday evening, showing in detail the projected budget for 1963-64, actual budget for 1963-64, and projected budget for 1964-65. In the coming budget, revenue is estimated at $816,797, and total expenses at $779,054, up six per cent from last year's estimate . . . which would allow a further deficit reduction of $37,743. The unexpectedly sharp reduction in the deficit came from two major factors . . . revenues were slightly up; expenses were considerably less than those allowed for. Biggest reduction was in in1 struction expenses where staff changes and re-assignments allowed nearly $10,000 less than expected for salaries. Another big savings came from the cafeteria where expenses were $44,948.19 instead of the budgeted $51,185 .... and revenue from the cafeteria was $45,323.91, more than the expected $42,885. The savings were laid to "good planning during the past year which made the best possible use of our inventories". Additional savings in the coming year are expected to result from "lower inventories at the beginning of the year". In 1963-64, revenues from taxes and interest, athletic receipts and NDEA aid were aU slightly less than expected, but student fees, miscellaneous receipts, and aid for special education, driver education.and vocational education were aU larger. So was federal food assistance. The 1963-64 budget operated on a state equalized valuation of $28,578,241, with an aUocation of 9.68 miUs and 2.82 of the 3.50 extra voted millage. The 1964-65 budget is predicated on a valuation of $30,019,695, which with 9.55 mills aUocated and 3.45 extra voted mUlage, would total 13 miUs. Debt retirement is pegged at 5.25 mUls. An additional $11,000 reve nue is expected in 1964-65 due to a change in the state aid formula. At the same time, increased expenses are expected due to normal salary increases, additional staff (to 79 teachers), and increases to adjust to a newly adopted salary schedule. A rise of 85 persons in the student population is estimated. Capital outlay increases will be required for the additional equipment for more students, and mechanization of payroU and bookkeeping systems with a used Burroughs bookkeeping machine. Boy's Fast Driving Saves Wheat Field A truck owned by Lynn Reese, of 5244 Hack Rd:, was completely destroyed by fire Thursday . . . but a wheat field was saved, due to the quick action of two Reese sons and a cousin. David Reese, 15, was driving the truck and hauling a wagon, in a combining operation in the tinder-dry wheat field. He wa§ accompanied by his brother, Dan, 13, and a cousin, Jeff, 12, of Grand Rapids. Sparks from the exhaust apparently set fire to straw caught in the undercarriage of the truck. The two younger boys immediately leaped out and uncoupled the wagon, leaving David to make a hair-raising drive that took the flaming truck out of the field so ^fast that the standing wheat faUed to catch. In too much of a hurry to look for the driveway to the road, he pitched the truck straight into a roadside ditch . . . but it was safely out of the wheat. Saline Fire Department was called to the scene but the vehicle was already destroyed. CITY HALL TO BE OPEN ON SATURDAY MORNINGS City Hall wUl be open Saturday mornings through the month of July, City Clerk E. J. Muir announced this week, in order to take voter registrations. Registration for the September 1 primary closes Monday, August 3. Toting a brand new gift suit case, Vincent Catacuzzeno, X-ray technician at Saline Community Hospital, left last week for a two-months' visit with his family in Italy. The suit case was a "fareweU" irom hospital staff and employees,. presented to Catacuzzeno (above, left) hy Dr. Paul Gerigk, Chief of Staff, at a party last Wednesday at the home of Amanda Feldkamp, where the technician, rooms. CataeuEzeno owned.and .operated a hospital in Italy, with his brother, before coming to this country. He then took training in'Fldrida and forked for a tame in Detroit, coming to Saline Hospital in February, 1962. Since that time, he has taken no vacations, saving up for the current trip back home. He will return to Saline on September 4.
