The Saline VOLUME 17, NUMBER 1 — WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1966 10c PER COPY — S3 PER YEAR £ V- Karol Engel is 'Miss Saline9 '*. i 7A& "Wasn't THAT a surprise!" chortled the Rev. H. L. Engel. "We are very happy, and not quite over the shock yet!" The Engels were (understandably) delighted when' their'*daughter was- declared "Miss .Saline of 1967" at tjhe ceremony Thursday evening. KaroV had entered the .event thinking, "Oh, heavens, this is just for the fun-of. it." She-was placid, unsuspecting, and .privately predicting three other winners . . . when her'name was called. She was crowned by her predecessor, Susan Guenther," before she was sure what it was all about. For a change, the queen and her court were on the receiving end. instead of the directing end, .of the huz- zahs. All four are High School cheerleaders. First runner-up was; Anita Larson, daughter of Mr. and -Mrs. Walfred Larsofi. Sr.; second runner-up was'Linda Struble, daughter of th» W. R. Stru- bles. And Sue Drake, daughter of Mrs. Ruth Drake, was dec1?red ""Mi^s Congeniality". All four girls are seniors, all17 years old. and all members of the Future Home- makers' Association. Karol is also a membsr of the Future Teachers' group and Spanish" Club, and she maintains a better-than-"B" average scholastically. She hopes to enter Eastern Michigan University next year to major in home economics. An accomplished pianist ("after 11 years of lessons) Karol also is sometimes organist at Trinity Lutheran Church, of which her father is senior pastor. She's interested in most athletics', plays softball, and swims. : She also likes to sew . . . and, of her cooking, her father remarks: "Well, she's gaining!" About boys, she is "very sensible . . . nothing serious," he opines. .;' TWO QUEENS shared the glory during the Fair Parade last Saturday. Karol Engel, the new "Miss Saline", and Sue Guenther, who reigned during the past year, demonstrate the hallmark of all local queens: A beautiful, friendly smile. Two nights before, the situation at the Fairgrounds was tense and suspenseful as the queen candidates a- waited Sue's announcement of her successor. First. Sue Drake, at far left in second photo, was named "Miss Congeniality". She's shown accepting her trophy and congratulations from emcee Dave Cobb and Sue Guenther, in the third picture. Linda Struble was named second runner-up, and Anita Larson wTas named first runner-up, to compose the queen's court. . . and finally came the announcement of Karol as Miss SaUne.

Jaycees in the second row: Dave Cobb (now known as Saline's Bert Parks, after years of service as emcee at the local pageant); Robert Beauchamp, queen committee chairman; and C. Kenneth Schooler. Falls Asleep; ^Fractures Knee Dale Robison, of 5500 Mar- ton Rd., suffered a fractured knee cap and multiple bruises Sunday evening when he fell asleep at the wheel of his car and struck a tree.

Scrimmages are not officially scored. But the Hornets are "a little inexperienced: a lot of them have limited game experience", Rotunno remarked. And three potentials have already been wiped out by practice injuries: Bob Kirkpatrick suffered a bruised bone; a dislocated kneecap benched Tom Mann; and Bruce Rosander acquired a head injury. Returning lettermen are Jim Chatterton, Bill Hunt, Dave Feldkamp, Marvin Tin- sley, Dave Blinn. Dave Reese, Ron Williams, Dave Strait, Ron Feeman, Ed Gall. Steve Russell, Bill Welch, Dave Farrell.'

The addition will also make it possible to maintain better daytime patrols when other officers must be in the office. Saline has two new doe- tors. A general practitioner, Dr. Raymond Bernreuter, began practice in partnership with Dr. Paul Gerigk. An obstetrician, Dr. Wilbur Vander Yacht, will begin practice here in mid-October, in the office formerly occupied by Dr. Eugene Garrison. Both were present at a meeting of the Saline Community Hospital medical staff, last Wednesday night. .•*'" \ AN EXTRA BIT OF EXCITEMENT, at the Saline Fair Steer Show, came when Barbara Finkbeiner's Hereford ste^r decided to protest after being named champion of its class. It took the combined efforts of Barb's father Lloyd, and Mannie Hill, plus other volunteer wranglers, to bring the big animal under control. Moments later, the subdued steer calmly joined the lineup of club champs shown in the second photo (left to right): Robert Girbach and Ms grand champ; Gary Girbach, reserve champ; Barb and her champ in the Hereford class; and Richard Schneider, reserve champ Hereford. In the bottom photo, Gene Carpentier, of Universal Die Casting, is shown with one of the purchases he made for U.D.C. at the auction the following night.

Westendorf CAN'T CLOSE MILLS A request from the Board of Education to close off a part of Mills Rd., to provide temporary playground space for Houghton School, was denied Monday by City Council.

Reserve champion steer, also an Angus, was owned by Gary Girbach, Bob's cousin. Champion Hereford was that of Barbara Finkbeiner.

The Rev. John Westendorf and his family have moved to the Trinity Lutheran Church parsonage at 108 E. McKay, and he will conduct his first services here on Sunday. He is the new junior pastor of the church, since the Rev. H. L. Engel has begun partial retirement but Temains senior pastor. The new family includes Mrs. Westendorf, Marion, and two sons, David, 7, and Jonathan, 10. Originally from Bay City, Mr. Westendorf has known Mr. Engel "since I was so high." He graduated from Northwestern College in Watertown, Wise, and the Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wise. He was ordained in 1949 in Williamston, Mich., where he served for three years. He then served churches in Livonia (nine years) and Brookfield, Wise, (four years) before coming here. The Engels now live at the "second parsonage," 68 Tower Dr. Dr. Bernreuter Dr. Bernreuter and his wife, now staying at a hotel, expect, to move to a tIo- ; e&^^^n^ntj\TO^^^2pgSt, 'Dr; -Varider 'YacnV will move here with his family from Dearborn as soon as a house is available.

Dr. Bernreuter, originally from Saginaw, graduated from the University of Michigan school of medicine in 1963, interned for a year at Hurley Hospital in Flint, and then spent two years in the U.S. Army, stationed at Stuttgart, Germany. He had been in correspondence with Dr. Gerigk "for about six months" before he received his discharge from the Army in August. He decided to locate here, he said, because of "the opportunity and the nice com- munitv and proximity to Ann Arbor" and the opening for "a complete range of general practice including OB's and emergencies". An article in The Reporter two weeks ago, on Saline's .doctor shortage, was "appropriate to our discussions, ahd very timely," he said. He made his • final decision the following week. His wife, Janet, is a graduate of the University of Michigan school of music. After graduating from high school in Holland, Mich., Wilbur C. Vander Yacht en tered Hope College in Holland as a music major. His schooling was interrupted by service during the -Korean War.

He was chief resident for two years. Dr. Vander Yacht is Board Eligible to become a Fellow in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Dr. Vander Yacht's wife, Audrey, i s originally from New Jersey and has attended Purdue University. They have a son, Jeffrey, 7, and a daughter, Jody, 5. After he read of the area's need for an obstetrician. Dr. Vander Yacht visited Saline and conferred with local physicians, before he made his decision to come here. .'. ..-Jfeligg^ t flowing need if or '..more medical service "exploded into a full-fledged crisis when Dr. Gordon Prout retired and Dr. Eugene Garrison was drafted, almost simultaneously. General practitioners here were swamped with more patients than they could handle; all but Dr. Gerigk found themselves unable to accept OB's (one has not done so for about 10 years) or take new patients except in urgent cases. Meanwhile, Saline Hospital's fully-equipped 10-bed maternity wing was virtually empty, as OB cases . were referred out of town. This week, Saline's established GP's were delighted with the double addition to the local medical roster. Said Dr. Rudenz Douthat: "Now we're in good shape. This will alleviate the problems." Said Dr. Dennis Burke: "I'm quite happy about it." Said Dr. Don Leidheiser: "I think it's wonderful." Dr. Gerigk was cautious: "Yes, we now have enough doctors . . . for the time being," he said. CHURCH APPROVED A plan submitted by the Church of the Nazarene, to construct a new church at the corner of Henry and Monroe streets, was approved Tuesday by the planning commission. BOY SCOUTS SCHEDULE PAPER DRIVE SATURDAY Saline Boy Scouts will conduct a paper drive Saturday; householders are asked to place one bundle of papers at the curb to indicate that pick-up is desired.
