Saline service clubs, working toward creation of a Saline area swimming facility, need YOUR answers to a number of important questions. Among them: Where do YOU want the Saline area pool located? What size do YOU think will be adequate for the area's needs now and in the years immediately ahead? How much are YOU able and Willing to contribute to Project Pool? Saline Kiwanians, Jaycees, and Rotarians, mapping general ground rules for the project, decided their Rule One should be this: A Saline pool must^ represent the wants of the peo-' pie of this area as closely as possible. It should be located on a site which represents the consensus of the area. Its size and styling should represent the wishes of the area. And, in the last analysis, its cost must be determined by the amount which the people of the area wish to pay for it. Following this line of reason- mg, planners from the three lo- ial service clubs decided recently that a "Pool Poll" would be helpful in determining the wishes of the area. The clubs are already in .process of naming members to a pool site-committee, a pool construction committee, and a pool fund-raising committee. Results of the poll will be tabulated and presented to the three committees to guide them in their planning. Thus, the clubs feel, the pool construction program which evolves will be the product of thinking throughout the area, and deserving of support when presented to the people for their action. The poll questionnaire appears below. ALL residents of the Saline Area School District, the territory which would be served by 'the pool, are urged to clip it out, fill it out, and mail it or bring it to The Saline Reporter. A poll box will be located there to hold the slips. The box will be covered . . .no- names will be involved in this polling . . . your answers will be completely confidential and will not commit you in any way to any obligation, financial or otherwise. However, since the pool-planners, will use your answers in mapping their program, you are asked to give each question your careful consideration. A few clues to help you with, your choices: An expert on pool construction, after sizing up the Saline area, figures the minimum size pool needed for this area would be 2,000 square feet. If the pool is to be used for competitive swimming events, as. well as for general use, the. recommended size is 75 feet long, .42 feet wide, or 3,150 square feet, probably a more realistic size for a growing population. An expert has also estimated that a typical pool complete with filtering, rercirculating equipment and '^standard accessories such as diving boards will cost about $10 per square foot. This, of course, is "the cost, for the pool facility alone, located outdoors. Thus, the minimum 2,000-squarerfoot pool would cost about $20,000 .. . . and the 3,150-square-foot pool would cost about $31,500.-. Of course, prices can vary widely from these typical figures, depending on .§ucli--V^riaM5gvHS tlie depth of the Water-"itf the diving area , . , the width: of the apron surrounding the„pool . . . the number of) "extras" such as underwater lights, etc. Shovfer and locker room fa- cilitijes would add another $10,000j, approximately, to . the cost off either installation. Thus, with the minimum pool,'a fund of about $30,000 .would be needed. With the larger pool about $42,000 would, be needed. At present, the planning groups are proceeding on the assumption that the cost of the pool site will not be a major factor in the overall picture. Of course, at this stage of planning, no-one in the area, including the planners, can be an expert. But your wishes, as expressed in the questionnaire below, can be of immeasurable help in producing THE pool which YOU want. The service clubs ask.that you state your preferences now.

Johnson To Oppose Jack Bennett Two Announce For Council Seats; Dechert Declines A contest for the office of mayor developed in Saline this week, as Councilman and Mayor pro tern George Johnson announced his intention to oppose the incumbent, Mayor Jackson T.

But Councilman Donald Dechert said he will not seek a second term. Three Council seats . . . those now held by Johnson, Strohl, and Dechert . . . are to be filled at the November election, along with the office of mayor.

Bennett is completing his second term as mayor, having •erved a partial term as a Council member before that. He said he intends to seek a third term because "I like' the job, ind there is still a lot to be *one." ■Among other* things, he said, "I am still bound and deter- nned we're going to have a • new City Hall and Fire Hall. 'le still have a lot of things on the fire that I would like to see accomplished, since I was in at Tie start: MEHA Village, the capital expansion program, and others." Johnson, who is completing his second term on the Council, said: "After serving as councilman and mayor pro tern for almost four years, I have come to have some very strong opin- ;ons of the type of program ind leadership that will be needed in the years to come. Our growing community needs leadership, planning, coordination, and follow-through in its city government. It is for these and other ' reasons that, I have decided to run for the office of mayor." Johnson said he had been "encouraged by a number of people in the community to be a candidate (for mayor) and been assured by my employer that I will .have all the time off necessary to fulfill the duties of the office".
