The Saline VOLUME 15, NUMBER 10-WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1964 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR ITED FUND CAMPAIGN LAGGING AT 46% arian Hering Honored n National Nurse Week In conjunction with National Nurses Week, the Saline Rotary Club and a great many other people found a long- sought opportunity to pay honor to Marian Hering (Mrs. Edwin Hering) for a. long history of dedicated community service. Marian will receive from Ro- 2 Meetings To Precede Bond Vote Two public forums have been scheduled to answer questions on the proposed new elementary school, prior to the vote . on bonding. The Board of Education and members of th e Saline Area Schools Advisory Council will meet with interested residents of the school district in the High School gymnasium, on both Monday, November 30, and Wednesday, December 2. Both meetings are set at 8 p.m. Registered voters will go to the polls on December 14 to decide on a proposal to bond the school district for $790,000, for construction of the new school and some needed repairs and remodeling of the present three schools. Architect's estimate of t h e cost of the new elementary is 8755,000, which includes $612,000 for construction, $18,000 for site development. $50,000 for equipment, $35,000 for site purchase, a $34,400 planning fee, $5,600 for survey, qualification of bonds, etc.; the sum of $35,000 for the work on the present schools brings the total to $790,000. A brochure sent out by the school groups points out that the bond issue will not necessitate a debt millage increase "as increased valuation in the school district makes it possible to finance the bond issue without raising the debt millage and, the .002 mills currently being levied for the present elementary school debt will no longer be needed for that purpose". The brochure sent out contained, for clarification reasons, a slight variation in wording from the preliminary copy released last week: "Will additional millage need to be voted at this time to operate the new building?" "No, additional millage will not be needed at the present time as there will be enough money in the increased allocated millage, recently voted, (15 mill limit raised to 18 mills) to finance the additional costs of operating the new school. The school will receive approximately one and one half mills of the voted increase." "Any changes or new innovations made in the curriculum of one elementary school will he made in the other elementary school in so far as facilities permit." Registration to vote in the bonding election closed Monday. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Intermediate School on December 14. tary Club a plaque reading "Saline Rotary Club, A Service Organization, Honors Marian Hering for Outstanding Service." The presentation is to be made at the Thursday noon meeting of the club, by Dale Brown, "community service chairman, and will include a letter: . "Dear Mrs. Hering, "We men of Saline Rotary have lived in this community for many years, and we know what a wonderful town it is. "We also know what makes it that way. "It's the neighborliness, compassion, and selfless service of Saline people like yourself. Whenever someone needs help . . . whenever a worthy cause needs a leader or a rallying point . . . whenever a job of service needs to be done . ". : Saline has learned to count on you. "Among Saline people who serve others just for the joy of helping, you are always in the forefront, leading the way, setting an example, smiling, encouraging," showing others what marvels can be accomplished by unselfish service. "You, more than anyone we know, make Saline the friendly, warm-hearted city which it is. "In honor of your years of service, therefore, we Rotarians wish to present a plaque to you. With it goes the deep, deep love and gratitude of an entire community. "We think.it most appropriate that this plaque. and letter should go to you during National Nurses Week, in the sea- v, ■> ■/ -MEHA SITE RE-ZONED City Council Monday night approved the re-zoning of the Meha retirement village site from R-l (single family) t o R-2 (multiple dwelling) to conform with the use called for in contracts with the city.

Under construction at fhe corner of Saline-Milan and Willis Rds. this summer, the new home of the Saline Baptist congregation now awaits only the arrival of pews before first services will be held there. The furniture shipment is expected at any time; when it arrives, the congregation will shift at once from its present meeting place at Jensen Elementary School. The group was holding services in a downtown storefront in September, 1962, when Pastor Robert Nelson arrived to take over the pulpit. Average church attendance at that time was about 35. Sunday school attendance was about 30. , In little more than two years the average church attendance has climbed to about 130 . . . Sunday school to about 95. Nelson, shown above, has worked on the church-building project while at the same time teaching school in Milan, taking night-school college courses, and carrying on his regular extensive duties as minister. Many members of the congregation have helped with the building. Among the younger helpers are Terry Wilson and Barbara Ealy," who worked at clean-up details. "VOICES FROM HOME" PROJECT PLANNED HERE The "Voices from Home" project to send family recordings to servicemen will be conducted here again by the American Red Cross. The recordings will be made at the Federated Church on December 9. Announcement of the project was made by Mrs. Edwin Hering, local Red Cross representative. There is no charge for the service. Anyone wishing to make an appointment,, or obtain further information, may call Mrs. Arthur Gill, 429-7357. Marian Hering son of Thanksgiving. You exemplify the highest ideals of the nursing profession . . . and we're all so very thankful to you." Mrs. Hering graduated from the University of Michigan School of Nursing in 1928. She then worked as both a private duty and a clinic nurse; she was employed at Herman Kei- fer Hospital and with the Detroit Visiting Nurse Association until 1937. Since Goming to Saline, her community service works have been legion. She has been a Red Cross- volunteer worker for more than 20 years, and since 1953 she has supervised such local activities as the Saline area Blood Bank, providing help for out-of-town factory blood banks, obtaining" special types of blood for emergency transfusions, and teaching Red Cross home nursing courses.

Five Thefts Investigated By Police A series of five thefts, apparently not all connected, were reported to police this week: A quantity of building material was taken from a construction site, in Rolling Meadows over the weekend. The missing lumber included 80 floor joints valued at $200 and other lumber valued at $40. Witnesses were able to describe a truck which was sighted in the area about the time the theft occurred. Two reports involved larceny from houses: a man's watch valued at $49.95 was taken from the kitchen table at the James Hanson residence, 159 Whitlock, on Saturday morning while Mrs. Hanson was in the house but had briefly left the kitchen; and 12 rolls of pennies were taken from the Gordon Dibble residence at 183 Whitlock, between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturday. A rear window was found open. Gary Keehl, 20, of Chelsea, was arraigned Tuesday morning in Municipal- -Court on a charge of larceny from a building, in connection with the theft of the pennies and the watch. Police said Keehl, who is now on parole from Southern Michigan Prison, is also implicated in 11 other larcenies, in three comities in the past two years. He waived examination and was bound over to Circuit Court to appear November 27. Two thefts from automobiles were also reported. A 12 foot by six foot tent and aluminum frame, valued at over $100, was taken some time Thursday night or Friday morning from a utility truck parked at the Auto Parts building on N. Ann- Arbor St. A woman's purse, containing identity cards and about $10 in cash was taken from a car owned by Lorena Liston, of Saline, while the car was parked on Davenport St. Mrs. Liston told police she had not been away from the car more than 15 minutes. The Saline area United Fund drive is lagging, creeping up to only 46.5 per cent, in the week when it was to have been nearly completed. A deadline for this week for residential collections wasn't met. Said drive chairman Buford Soden: "I think quite a lot of our people have gone deer hunting." So far, only $6,062.71 has been turned in toward the $13,095 that is needed to meet commitments to local, area and state agencies. But, though reports are coming in slowly, there are signs that the goal will ultimately be reached, Soden indicated. "I think we're going to get close to it, even if we don't make it. We just can't tell, yet.". The only residential area reported as yet is the southeast city . . . and contributions there are higher than last year, he noted. None of the other eight areas has 'been completed. The northeast city area is partially reported. Another encouraging sign came from employees of R & B Tool Co., who this year contributed $147. "That's way up over previous years," said Soden. There is still "a lot more New Stoplight Now Operating The city's new traffic stoplight, at the corner of Crestwood and S. Ann Arbor St., is now in operation, and drivers should keep it in mind, Chief of Police Jim Levleit said. A timer has been ordered; until its arrival, the light will be operated manually. It will maintain a "stop and go" pattern on school days between 8 and 9 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 1 p.m., and 3:15 and 4:30 p.m. At other times and on non- school days, the light will flash amber on Ann Arbor St. and red on Crestwood. Post Office to Close Thanksgiving Day Saline Post Office will observe holiday procedures Thursday, November 26 (Thanksgiving Day), Postmaster Clarke Gordon announced this week. No window service will be provided on that day, and there will be no deliveries by either city or rural carriers. Holiday schedules for collection, receipt and dispatch of mail will be observed. from industry to come", he said," reminding Salinians who are employed out of town to ear-mark their gifts, at woi-k, to be returned to the Saline fund. Only partial reports have been received from businesses, service clubs, and schools. Soden urged all drive captains to report their collections immediately, even, though area contacts may not be completed. "Even partial reports would give us a better idea of where we stand," he said. Three Hurt In Accidents During Week Three Saline area young persons were injured in traffic accidents this week: ( Miss Mary Ann Alexander, 18, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Alexander, was injured in a one-car wreck in which another 18-year-old girl was killed. The accident, Sunday afternoon near Clinton, was fatal to Carolyn L. Layne, a student at the University of Michigan school of nursing, who was a passenger in a car driven by Robert F. Hoeberling, 18, of Grosse Pointe Park, when it went out of control on a rain- slick curve. The vehicle smashed through a steel guard rail, and struck a tree. Miss Alexander was taken first to Herrick Memorial Hospital in Tecumseh and then to University Hospital, where she is still under observation. She suffered broken ribs and lacerations of the neck. She is a freshman at the University, and a Regent Scholar. The driver of the car also received head lacerations and knee injuries. Miss Nancy Coleman. 21, of 818 Church St., Ann Arbor, was reported in "good" condition today at University Hospital, where she is under treatment for a closed head injury suffered Sunday in a bicycle accident. Police said the bicycle she , was riding struck a parked car on N. University Ave. in Ann Arbor, and she was thrown over the front of the bike so that her head hit the car. Miss Coleman is a student teacher in several social science classes at Saline High School. Daniel L. Klein, 17, son of (Continued on Page 5) Bereft Family Seeks News o (In the absence of a Pinker- ton Agency or a Hercule Poirot, and since the Missing Persons Bureau deals only with persons, the Robert Todd family this week issued a plea to the whole town to turn detective and find a missing cat ... but not just an ordinary cat. "Casey", it is obvious from their description below, is special.) ^ s: •l Miss Michigan Farm Bureau WILLING WORKERS PLAN DINNER The members of the Willing Workers Club will hold a potluck dinner at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 19, at Saline Township Hall. Library Slated For Telephone The Saline Public Library is about to acquire its first telephone. The decision to install a telephone, which will make possible a number of additional services, was made at the monthly meeting of the library board on Tuesday night, attended by Mrs. Charles Kern, Mrs. Harry Holmes, Mrs. Regis Wolfinger and Mrs. George Johnson. Mrs. Donald Rapp was absent. The board also apprqved a policy that, after patrons have been given adequate "overdue" notice, a bill for replacement of the overdue material will be sent. Casey This is Casey, our big yellow eat. He disappeared without a trace on October 29, from his home at 313 N. Ann Arbor St. His disappearance in this way is not like him because he is usually quite shy with Strang ers, particularly men. He never strayed very far from home, so if he was killed by a car or in some other.way, we or our neighbors would certainly have found his body by this time. We hang onto the hope that he is still alive, lost, and perhaps being cared for by some kind soul. Casey is easy to recognize by his behavior and size. He is quite large, but he never quite stopped being a kitten. He loves to play, especially with other cats and particularly with. Martha, one of our other cats. He has a tremendous purr that can be heard all the way across a big room, and he has a habit of sleeping in some of the most ridiculous poses you can imagine. In short, he is just a clown, and we have been a sad household without his antics. Our search has been aided by our neighbors, the police, the humane society, and Martha, who just won't stop looking for him. Martha sits for hours on the front porch or on the picnic Martha table in the rear of the house, staring out into the distance for her pal, Casey. If he or his body were anywhere around, we're rather sure Martha would have found him by NOW. If you have any information on -the whereabouts of Casey, please call us, the Robert Todds, at 429-5803. drop in at 313 N. Ann Arbor St., or see Mrs. Todd at the library when it is open. We would be most grateful to get Casey "back and happy to pay a reward.
