Almost as huge was the smile sported by Steve Hoeft, over his 12-pound fish which, though slightly heavier, measured lYz inches shorter than David's 29^2-incher.

M-52 to Get Light, Paving A flashing caution and stop light will be installed soon on M-52 at Austin Road,, east of Manchester in _ Washtenaw County, the Department of State Highways has announced. The light will show yellow for traffic from the west, and red for traffic from the south and east. The decision to install the light was made after several motorists from the south ran an existing stop sign and went off the road on the north side of the T intersection. V The Highway Department will pay two-thirds of the cost of the light and the county will pay the balance. The Highway Department also opened bids on Wednesday for paving 5.2 miles of M-52, between US 12 -and Austin Rd. At an estimated cost of $10,000, the project is scheduled for completion on September 15. ATT, SCHOOL BOARD OFFICERS RE-ELECTED All officers of the Saline, area Board of Education were re-elected at the board's organization meeting Monday night. - ' They are Ray Girbach, president; Elaine Heiserman, vice president; Max Collins, treasurer; arid -Gerald Coe, secretary. Rev. Nelson After six years here, the Rev. Robert Nelson, pastor of Saline Baptist Church, has tendered his resignation. The minister plans to leave Saline about the third week of August and move to the community of' Ada, about six miles southeast of Grand Rapids, to start another church, he said. Mr. Nelson came to Saline while the local congregation was meeting in a store building. Since the congregation was too small to support a minister fulltime, Mr. Nelson taught school in Milan for three years..The congregation outgrew the store" building and then met for a time at Jensen Elementary School. Within 2y2 years, the small congregation moved to the present -new church building at Willis and S. Ann Arbor streets.- Six months later the 'home-missionary pastor gave, up fulltime teaching to be supported completely by the local congregation. . Pastor Nelson said, of his' stay in Saline, "These years have been the happiest years that any pastor could ask for. We will leave Saline" Baptist Church richer in spirit and character because bf our relationship with these quality people." First Meeting Set After Millage Vote Board of Education and Saline Education Association negotiators have called for a mediator, and Leo Cadwell, of Benton Harbor, has been assigned to the talks here. The Labor Mediation Board representative will meet with local bargaining teams for the first time on July 28 . : . the day after the special millage election. Until the request for 10.85 mills for operating the schools is approved or rejected by voters, Board and SEA negotiators will remain in the dark . . . and so will the mediator ... as to how much is available with which to negotiate. Said Cadw^ir today: "We can't take the situation until it develops." A- veteran of 30 years in the labor movement, mostly as a representative of the machinists' union in Benton Harbor, Cadwell joined the , Labor Mediation Board last year. He dealt with school contract sessions in Richmond, Garden City, Swartz Creek and others, last year, and "in most cases arrived at settlements that suited everybody". This year, he is already meeting With bargaining teams for the Taylor school system. He was assigned to,Detroit and Dearborn, but both settled without Ms assistance. -. ;- If mediation fails, the next step is to go into the factfinding prS_cedurej which Sa- lirib' ictitioU did two years ago. lLast .year, the contract dispute was settled in an all- night session with a mediator. The 10.85 millage request on the July 28 ballot represents a renewal of 7.54 mills which ■ was approved by voters last year and has now lapsed,, plus an additional 3.31 mills. If the millage is turned down on July 2S, the lapse of time required by "law between elections would mean another request' could not be put before the voters until September: Without the additional voted millage, Saline schools will have only the allocated 11.22 mills for operation. They have not operated with less than 12 mills for the past eight years. Pending results of the millage vote, all orders of textbooks, supplies, arid equipment have been held up, Superintendent Harold Hintz said. Such orders are usually sent in June. Also awaiting the outcome of the election is further work on the greenhouse, donated to the High School by tlie Fair Board, which also paid for the $1,250 foundation for the small building, now located next to the agriculture room. Heat, benches, and plantings have -not yet been put in.
