Two UAW Officials Resign A change in union leadership at the Ford plant this week followed charges of "racial discontent" at the plant; and one of the UAW officials said the turnover was "somewhat related" to the charges. ,' James J. Sheridan, president of .UAW Local 892, resigned and was automatically succeeded by the vice president, Ben F. Brewer. A member of the bargaining committee, Tom Collins, also resigned. The resignations came after an Ann Arbor Human Relations Commission meeting in which HRC Director David Cowley reportedly said that the number of complaints from dissatisfied black employees "has increased to 50 of the 215 total" at the Saline plant. Sheridan retorted: "That's a lie . . . there are only two." He refused to comment to OVERWHELMED by a citation from the state, designating Saiine Community Fair as the best of its class (among some competitors that are far bigger), Fair Board mem bers Ray Girbach and Albert Gall brought home the far-from small trophy, put it on display, and passed congratulations on to the whole communitv. .:£-- Immobilises Buses, Phones, Mail Tall Trophy Presented In Detroit: Startled and 'happy Fair board members Saturday night accepted, for the Saline Community Fair, a gleaming, three-foot trophy for "The Best Big Little Fair in the • State". The award was given" at the annual banquet of the Michigan Fair Association. Saline Fair Board President Albert Gall attended, along with Ray Girbach, former president. To present the award, the master of ceremonies called the Bame "Ray Gear-back" three times before Gall nudged Girbach and said: "He's calling your name." (Girbach is prounced "Gear-baw") Said Ray later, "You could have knocked me over with a feather." The trophy, presented by the association annually since 1S65, is for the best Fair in Michigan which receives state aid (for premiums) of $8,000 or less. Approximately 30 to 40 in the state fall in that category. Saline's 1968 Fail- paid'out just over $5,000 in premiums; 40 per cent of that sum is returned by state aid. The trophy will be on display at the Saline Savings Bank until about March 1, when it will be placed on display at another location in the downtown area. Said Albert Gall, after the award: "It was a distinct honor and pleasure to be present at .the banquet, where Raty and i received many congratulations.
