The VOLUME 15, NUMBER 13--WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1964 Reporter * * * 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Proposed New Elementary School City Wafer, ^ewer :e for 20 Year - iV-" *» V.* I i . I-TJC^S 1 A tentative floor plan for the proposed new elementary school is shown above, though exact plans cannot be drawn by the architect until a bond issue for the school is approved by voters. Approval of the $790,000 bond issue at Monday's election will, make it possible to construct the school for use beginning with the fall, 1965, school term ... a delay, even if approval is forthcoming at a later election, would probably mean the school could not be finished next year. The addition of the proposed 20-room elementary school to Saline's school system is expected to relieve for some years the overcrowding that, already a serious problem in the present lower grades, moves up through the other schools as the large classes advance. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, December 14, at the Intermediate School. All registered electors in the Saline School District are eligible to vote. igh School Honor tasters Announced High School honor rolls for the second marking period were announced this week.

Weage Roger Wiedmayer (Continued on Page 5) ROTARIANS TO SEE SCHOOL SLIDE SERIES A series of slides on Saline schools, prepared by Daniel Li- rones of the Schools Advisory Council, will be shown at the Thursday" noon meeting" of Rotary, at Leutheuser's Restaurant. Gerald Coe is the program chairman. Mrs. Paul. H. Woods,, above, is one of Saline's two announced candidates for a board of trustee post for the proposed Washtenaw County Community College. With a long history of active community service and church work, Mrs. Woods is also a former teacher; part of her teaching experience was in a junior college, in Texas. The other announced candidate from Saline is City Attorney Allan Grossman. Six members of a board of trustees are to be chosen at the same January 15 election that will determine whether a community college is to be set up here. Five additional candidates, from other areas of the county,, have already filed petitions in the County Clerk's office. Girl Scouts Plan Christmas Bazaar Senior Girl Scout Troop 279, led by Mrs. Charles Deasy, will sponsor a Christmas Bazaar, on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Wight Cleaners. The Scouts will sell Christ- mas decorations, centerpieces, and clothes for Barbie dolls, which they have made. Proceeds will be used for a trip which the troop plans to make next summer. Troop 279 is sponsored by the" Child Study Club. REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS NEXT WEDNESDAY FOR JANUARY VOTE . Deadline for registration to vote in the January 15 special election on the proposed Washtenaw County Community College is Wednesday, December 16. Residents may register with their city or township clerks. Voters wilL go to the polls in January to decide on a mill- age for the proposed college; and to elect six members of a board of trustees, whose first duties would be to select a site and supervise construction of the college, if the millage is approved. Skating Rink May be Ready This Week The ice rink on Henne Field may be ready for use .this weekend . . . depending on weather. The rink, maintained by the city recreation department winter sports committee, is the biggest in Washtenaw County; it provides day and evening skating, and a separate hockey area, for Saline area residents throughout the winter. Work began this Week on filling the rink; Chairman of the committee is Bob Russell; Al McPhee is secretary-treasurer. Volunteers who worked Sunday included Clyde Griffin, Milton Hartman, Jim Griffin, Bruce Niethammer, Al and Ray Hartman, Steve Miller, Gerry Miller, Phil Bondie, Ed Hewitt, BiU Brink, Barry and Taylor Jacob- sen. But there is "a lot of ice to be made yet," Russell said. Continued cold weather will be necessary if the rink is to open soon. Members of the Key Club, the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanians, will supervise skating and clean the ice this year as a community service; they will also sharpen skates as a fund-raising project. Bruce Niethammer is Key Club president. When the rink is ready, skating hours will be from 4 to 9 p.m. on weekdays when school is in session; from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during school vacation. At other hours there will be no supervision, and the warming shed and gates will be locked. Children are urged not to attempt to use the rink until proper freezing has been completed, and not - to use it at any time except during the supervised hours, Russell said. Vandalism in other years has cost the volunteer committee hours of extra work to make repairs. Water Tower To Stay Empty This Winter Saline's new 250,000 gallon water tower will not be filled until spring, City Council decided Monday night. Council made the decision on the recommendation of DPW Superintendent Mike- Strait, who said in his monthly report that "due to the enlarged capacity of the new tower, the fill and empty cycle of the old tower might freeze". The new tower cannot be painted until spring, in any case, he pointed out, because "it is necessary to have warm weather for adequate painting". The early advent of cold weather also stalled other projects, Strait said: "Henry Street was graveled but Washtenaw A s- phalt failed to place the asphalt base before the street froze. This means that, unless there is a good break in the weather, we will have to maintain this street in gravel until spring. We will try chloride on the street if it becomes dusty again." "The streets in Rolling Meadows No. 1 have been partially dug out for gravel ... a break. in the weather may allow the contractor to finish this work."

Sawall, traveling freight agent for the New York Central system, with headquarters in the Saline Depot handling Saline, .Bridgewater and -Brooklyn, has also taken over several stations' on * the" Airline Branch, from Jackson to Centerville. He visits these on Tuesday and Friday of each week, now -handling a total ojf 10 stations. Blood Bank Canteen Head Steps Down Mrs. Chris Volz, for the first time in 12 years, won't be chairman of the canteen for the Saline area Blood Bank when the Red Cross Bloodmobile visits Saline in January. Mrs. Volz "will still help out", she said, hut she will not be in charge of the "canteen operation because "I'm slowing down". Mrs. Alwin Burkhardt will serve as chairman. Saline Red Cross representatives and co-chairmen of the overall"""Blood "Bank operation .here are Mrs. Edwin-Hering and Mrs. George Austin.
