The Saline Reporter VOLUME 18, NUMBER 15 - Wednesday, December 21,1966 10c PER COPY -^ $4 PER YEAR UND GIFT GOES TO LIBRARY, REG HORNET HOPES REVIVED NOW— ayvees Take nton Games Masonic Installation j i q Held Last Friday *~j I f The Hornets powered their way into the Southeastern Conference win column . . . moving up to a four-way tie for second place . . . with their victory last Friday over Dexter. The battle with the Dreadnaughts started out as a defensive contest, with both teams scoring only 11 points total in the first period and only 18 in the second. But the guest Hornets broke the ice in the latter half of the game, pulling ahead to a 29- 28 lead at the three-quarter mark, and then burying Dexter under a blizzard of baskets in the final period. In that last period, Saline used a press, to great advantage. A- cople of steals by Jack Starling, followed by lay-up "baskets, opened up the Dreadnaught defense, and made some working room for big Jim Carman, up the middle. As a result, the Hornets outscored Dexter 20-8 in the final quarter, and they took the game going away, 49-36. Saline trailed in the scoring, 5-6, in the first period . . . and lagged still further at the half, 13-16. But the big second half did the trick. Carman was Saline's top scorer, with 16 points. Starling added 14. * « « In a non-league game with Clinton Tuesday, Sahne again produced a win with their new brand of aggressive and hustling, play . . . but as usual, the Hornets put their fans through some very sus- penseful moments before finally sewing up the victory. After leading 12-6 at the quarter, Saline over-reacted to a Clinton press in the second period . . . gave Clinton 11 charity tosses in that one frame . . . and watched in some frustration as the guest team sank 10 of them. Largely because o f this, the Hornets found themselves in a 27-27 deadlock at the half. They edged to a three- point lead at the end of the third period . . . and then, in the final period, they more than held their own to take the game 58-54. In the* final five minutes, Gary Ferguson, Fred Franz and Jack Starling each committed sweet laree^ ny . . . ste.aling the ball from Clinton players to beef up the Hornet side of the scoreboard. n Gary led the Saline attack with 17 points . . . and Jim Carman helped with his 10. And defensively the Hornets showed considerable class, too. Butch Hoelzer, Clinton's .chief point-maker, had been averaging 30 -per game .this Former Hornet Will Return for Dec. 30 Contest During Christmas vacation Saline cagers will entertain Dearborn Riverside High's team in a non-league fracas Friday, December 30. The Dearborn quintet is coached by Harry Fosdick, himself a Hornet cage star in the;- mid- 1940's. The Jayvee game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m., and the varsity at about 8, at the Saline High gym. Southeastern Conference play will resume for the Hornets on January 6 . .. . with Dundee coming to town for "the big one", as Coach Don Jaeger labels the meet. The Vikings, traditional spoilers for Saline, are perched i n their usual position at the top of the league, with two wins, no defeats.: "If we're going anywhere this year, we've got to beat them," Jaeger commented this week. ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ season. Saline didn't stop him but they did manage to cut him down to 20. Clinton entered' the Tuesday game with a perfect five-win record. The Hornets cut that down, too. Junior Varsity Coach Jim Bradley's Jayvees proved themselves to be bouncy comeback specialists .in their past two games. After losing to Blissfield earlier in the week, Bradley's men mowed down Dexter last Friday, 64-52 . . . then humbled Clinton, 65-50, last Tuesday. . In the Dexter game, scoring honors went to Rick Berry, with 19 points, Chuck Wahl, 17, Tom Burr, 11, and .Bob 'Girbach, 9.-Leading-irefe bounders: Wahl, 18; Mike Farrell, 12; Berry, 8; and Girbach; 6. Saline dropped in 25 of 61 field goal tries for a .41 per cent shooting factor . . . while Dexter scored 23 out of 56'. A big share of Saline's winning margin came at the free throw line, where they poured in 14 bas-^ kets in 18 tries, compared to' Dexter's 6 out of 16. » # * Against Clinton, Chuck Wahl led the Hornet attack, scoring 18 points for the home team. Rick Berry, with 16 points, ano Tom Burr, with 15, helped cinch the victory. Berry was the team's top rebounder, spearing 12 for the evening.

There was real magic in the Christmas scene for the four granddaughters of .Mrs. William Meister and their 12 friends last Saturday. The magic arrived at a Christmas party at the Meister home for Kristi and Tracey Meister, Terri and Sherri Badour, in the form of magician Peter Sanelson. Mrs. Meister's daughter, Mary, and daughter-in-law, Betsy, helped with gifts, games and refreshments for the group, and all in all Mrs. Meister said of the day: "It was wonderful!" The board of directors of the Sahne Area United Fund met Wednesday, December 14, for the pleasant task of directing overflow funds into needed channels.

Spec-4 Bailey could have landed this week in Vietnam -with- his;-tmit^utuhe. ^idhlfe-^; The reason he didn't is "that he's in a hip-length, straight cast,' suffering irojn a severe double compound fracture of one leg and a mangled muscle. He had several blood transfusions while hospitalized in Ann Arbor. He's now lying in an Army hospital in Pennsylvania, and he's not at all sure he wouldn't just as soon have landed with his buddies overseas. The Army transferred John from St. Joseph Mercy Hospital on December 8, and he won't "be home for Christmas". It hasn't been easy since he arrived home on furlough in November and was struck from behind as he sat at the curb on his motorcycle in front of his parents' home, the Edgar Baileys on Piatt Rd., on November 28. The Army has brought charges against the motorist whose vehicle struck; Bailey's motorcycle.

Tha major beneficiary will be the Sahne Library. Our Ubrary at present has 6,000 books. A community this size should have access to at least 10,000 books. One thousand of these books will be provided by the addition of $6,250 to "the library fund. The remainder of this amount is to be used to provide shelving for books and to help defray the salary expense of keeping the library open additional hours. This will certainly be of benefit to the adults as well as the children, board members feel. Mrs. Robert Todd, librar- fanf^saidife^mbriey^'Mf^ used to purchase standard fiction, non-fiction and reference books and also some books particularly tailored to the interests and needs of the people in our own area. "We'U start shopping as soon as we receive some of that money. This is wonderful; just what we've wanted and needed." " Saline Recreation Commission was the other participating member to be aided by the surplus. Over 600 children take part in winter and summer recreation programs. This number will increase in the future. A total of $4,750 was given to be used for the year-round program. Winter recreation will use the money for materials for a retaining waU around the ice shelter at the Junior High School, revamped vapor lights for ice rink, benches, wood flooring in buildnig, and to help defray the original materials cost of the skatersj* shelter. For summer recreation, improved softbaU Ughting and a new Little League diamond are forthcoming. Also, some of this money will.Jjelp pay for the unexpected*rise in the cost of swimming program. A special meeting wiU be held in the near future to elect new members to the board of the Saline United Fund. A breakdown of the funds received shows that $2,615.58 or 7.42 per cent came from the city canvass during the drive and $1,778.99 or 5.04 per cent came from the rural drive in the vicinity. Employees' withholding pledges accounted for 55.57 per cent of the total, or $19,586.89. Industry contributed 25.11 per cent of the money, or $8,852. The remaining $2,- 407.50 distributed came from business, service clubs, building trades, the SaUne area schools and SaUne Community Hospital. Distinguished Young Saline Man SaUne Jaycees this week opened their annual search for the community's "most distinguished young man" to be honored at their "Bosses' Night" banquet January 18. The recipient of the title and plaque must be between 21 and 35 years of age, but he need not be a Jaycee member. One or more "honorable mention" citations are usually given. All winners wiU be announced at the banquet. Last year the nomination committee did not choose a final candidate. The "Distinguished Service Award" is an award by the Jaycees pointing out exemplary service by a. young man for his service to his community, and an award will not be given unless, a candidate qualifies. Jaycees encourage nominations from the pubUc, and an entry blank for that purpose wiU appear in next week's paper. Anyone may fill out the blank and mail it to John Proctor, 382 HU1- crest. He is chairman of this year's search.
