he Saline VOLUME 14, NUMBER 47 -- WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1964 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Little Boy Dies When Car A „ Hits Wagon; Driver Ticketed *T^fCB •Bfinc A landmark goes up: Work was progressing rapidly this week on construction on the new city water storage tank, just off Henry Street,, which will be the highest structure in Saline . . . the portion shown is only the base. In another month, former Salinians will he hard put to recognize their home town skyline. A landmark comes down: Work began this week on the demolition of the century-old Citizens Bank building, to make room for progress, expansion, and a modern building with additional hanking services. Already reduced to memory and a pile of lumber is the adjacent Saline Hotel restaurant building, at left. Saline's "four corners" will never be the same again. A ticket for failure to stop within the assured clear distance ahead this week ended a Sheriff's Department investigation of the accident that took the life of five-year-old Roger Finkbeiner Thursday morning. A deputy today said there are no grounds for further charges against the driver of the car, which struck a wagon in which Roger was riding with his grandfather, on Jordan Rd. near Braun Rd. The impact toppled the child to the ground where the wheels of the wagon passed over his body. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Saline Community' Hospital. Roger, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Darell Finkbeiner, of 5475 Austin Rd., and his grandfather, Jacob Marion, of 10509 Jordan, were seated at the front of a farm wagon which was being pulled by a tractor driven by the child's uncle, Marvin J. Marion, of 10605 Jordan. They were moving south on Jordan Rd. when a late-model station wagon, driven by Mrs. Judith N. Wise, 23, of 4250 Saline-Ann Arbor Rd., came over the crest of a hill, apparently went o.ut of control, and skidded a total of 189 feet before striking the left rear of the wagon. Deputies said the distance from the top of the hill to where the wagon was struck is approximately 1,000 feet. Neither -of the Marions was knocked from his seat by the impact, and both were uninjured. Mrs. Wise also escaped injury. The little boy was rushed to the hospital by his grandfather but died of severe internal injuries, a deputy medical examiner said. He was born May 27, 1959, in Ann Arbor.

Cost Study reject Representatives of Saline Kiwanis, Jaycees and Rotary met last week to take first steps toward organization for "Project Pool". Meeting Thursday night, the group discussed framework of the organization which will spearhead a community drive to build a community swimming pool here. Two officers of Saline's Business and Professional Women's Club, Mrs. Rose Fa?rell and Mrs. Jean Taylor, also attended the meeting, to relay information on the group's plans back to their club. Each of the three service clubs was asked to name one member each to a "Project Pool" board of directors; a committee to investigate possible sites" for a pool; a committee to investigate various possibilities in size, style and price for the pool; and a committee to head fund-raising activities. County 4-H Show Reflects Expanding Club Programs Roger Finkbeiner e ea If Business World... Membership Open To Elementary The County 4-H Show this week at the Farm Council Activities Center is bigger and has more facilities than ever before. This year a record 1,300 young people , are enrolled in the 4-H program and are exhibiting at the show. This year for the first time, it has been necessary to erect a tent for the growing 4-H horse project, Saline Team Assured of Share In League Title The Saline team Monday night nailed down at least a share of the Ann Arbor High .School .League- title, with a. 2-1 victory over the Ann Arbor Police team, in eight innings. The victory ended the local team's regular season with a 12-2 record. The game was a toss-up until the last inning, when Ron Callison doubled, Bruce Nietham- pier grounded out third to first, and Callison raced home.

Petitions filed must contain not less than 70 signatures of registered electors. to accommodate a 30 per cent increase in the project. In addition, enrollments in the sheep, rabbits and other projects have increased. " New activities this year include cook-outs for members enrolled in the outdoor meals project, a tractor operating contest and a new gun safety evaluation activity. There is also increased emphasis o n 4-H members taking part in judging activities, such as those in foods, vegetables, flowers, rabbits, poultry, livestock, horse and dairy projects. The show is open to the public and there is no charge for admission or parking. The annual Washtenaw- County 4-H Market Livestock Sale will be held Friday at 8 p.m., climaxing the week-long 4-H Show activities. Approximately 45 steers, 25 hogs, and 50 lambs will be auctioned. The animals are all 4-H px'ojects and will have been fed and shown by 4-H members. Ed Gottschalk, of Howell, will be the auctioneer. During several hours of discussion, the group established these facts for general guidance in future planning: Several weeks ago members of Rotary inspected the community pool in Clinton. This facility measures 30 feet wide, 60 feet long. It cost $23,000 complete ... and although built several years ago by a Detroit swimming pool contractor, it would cost the same, or somewhat less today. The Saline group's consensus was that the pool was not large enough to handle present and future needs here. Inspections have also been made of two recent pool installations in the Ann Arbor area . . . both of them built to serve private clubs. Each cost approximately $80,000 complete. Each is about four times the size of the Clinton pool. Representatives of the service clubs at the meeting felt generally that a pool for Saline would need to be somewhere between these two extremes in price and size, in order adequately to serve a growing community and yet to be within reach financially. The group also briefly discussed various means of raising money for the project and various sites which might best serve the greatest number of Saline-area residents. But, since these matters will be investigated thoroughly by members of the three committees, the group made no recommendations. To help the committees in their work, though, the group did recommend that a community-wide "Pool Poll" be taken, to get a sampling of the wishes of the area residents on preferable pool sites, styles, sizes and prices. A questionnaire will be designed for this purpose and will be published in next week's Reporter. AT J. residents of the Saline area will be urged" to fill out the questionnaire and to turn it in at a designated collecting joint. In this way, the group feels, the study and action committees will be able to establish definite guide-lines for the project facing them, based on the wishes of the community. Moved In...
