The Saline Volume 21, Number 1 ~ Thursday, "September 11, 1969 10c COPY - $5 YEAR Thill Crowned 'Miss Saline A GLAMOROUS COURT for a glamorous queen: (left to right) Pat Hiser, daughter of the Ed Hisers, who was second runner-up in the "Miss Saline" Pageant; Kathy Gordon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Gordon, first runner-up; "Miss Saline" herself, Jan Thill; and Eenee Osterhout who, judging by the tremendous ovation from the crowd when she was announced, is about the most popular "Miss Congeniality" ever elected here. Renee is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Robert Osterhout. kppiest of Homes I . ■_. #^_ v *> SOMETIMES A GRIN. GETS SO WIDE that a fellow has to swallow it in order to look as dignified as is suitable for the brand-new owner* of a four-months-old pony named "Happy Home" . . . which may account for the determined expression on the face of Mike Payeur (left). His fascinaed brother and sisters, who will no doubt be admitted to co-ownership in due time, are Gary, 11, who is toting Tina, V/z, while Julie, 6, strokes the pony's smooth coat. The happiest home in southern Michigan, if not in the entire state, is that pf Mike Payeur and his brothers and sisters, and their mother, Mrs. _ Roger Horn, of the Clinton area. The cause of the joy is a four-months-old chestnut pony with four white feet, which Mike won at the Saline Fair by naming the little beauty "Happy Home". Mike, who will' be nine in October, explained that his home hadn't been happy since his former pony slipped on the ice last winter, was caught between a tree and a fence, and died. It would be a happy home again, he said, if it included another pony. With that, alike was a hands-down winner of the pony given away at the Saline Fair, the seventh in a row given in the annual contest.by Weavie Pony Farms. A saddle and bridle for "Happy Home" were donated by Westside Hardware. . The youngsters,- who attend school in Clinton, are Mike; his brother, Gary, 11; a sister, Julie, 6; and another sister (who doesn't yet attend school anywhere) Tina, 1%. The youngsters also have a dog, and their mother has a horse. In fact, love "of horses runs in the family, including the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Knight, Sr., who live on the adjacent farm. 0 Kindergarten Registration Soars Kindergarten enrollment-at both elementary schools has already soared well above last year's totals ... and apparently beyond school officials' estimates ... and youngsters are still being registered. The registration will continue through Mbnday, when kindergarten sessions will begin and, at that grade level, latecomers often register their children several days after opening day. V Houghton School this week had 125 kindergarteners registered, as compared with last year's endof-school total of 102. At Jensen School, pft-registrations number U3, as compared with 104 at tlie end bf the previous year. . '.. . * Only four sections have been assigned for kindergarten at each school, - 7'. \7-7 7 . '7—7...-.-7 GO AL SET AT $38,118 Harold Gage Heads Campaign To Kick off Here October IU , The Saline area United Fund budget for 1969-70 has ' been set at $38,118, and the campaign, headed by Harold ;' Gage, will-open at a kick-off dinner on October 14. Mrs. Donald Leidheiser is chairman of the budget committee. V ; ■• The budget this year is $4,205 higher than last year's . goal :. ...'. but ".4,000 less than the drive brought in. i Overages were paid to all participating agencies last /year, and the rest of the $8,000 backlog . . . and then some . . . has been put to use during the year to aid ■Saline Community. Hospital ($6,528 'for furniture and - equipment for the- office addition); the Saline Library (S2,080 for interest on the purchase principal, plus rent on Jhe former building until the. library could move) and ... as late as two weeks ago . . . $500 to the Red Cross as Saline's contribution to the nationwide drive for relief for victims of Hurricane Camille. The coming year's budget includes $9,450 which will make the final payment on purchase of the library building, plus interest. The library, which last year also (received $1,000 for books and other items, this year requested . . . and received in the budget . . . only $500 tor that purpose. Other local agencies in the 1969-70 budget, all of which were allotted the amounts they asked for: Saline Recreation, $4,000, up $500 from last year; Saline Social Services, $850, up $500 from" last year; Saline Boy Scouts, $250, up $125; Saline Cub Scouts, $250, up $50; and Saline Girl Scouts, $150, unchanged. '■ Local agencies account for $6,000 of the total bud- - get, not counting the.building payment for the library. Three area agencies are marked in the budget for the same amounts they requested and received last year: Salvation Army, $1,250;, Huron Valley Child Guidance Clinic, $300; and the Cystic Fibrosis fund, $1,200. Others, all of which are slated for raises this year, are the Red Cross, to receive $4,802; Michigan United Fund, $4,026; Portage Trails Boy Scout Council, $3,300; Huron Valley Girl Scout Council, $3,200; Washtenaw Society for Retarded Children, $1,000; Children's Aid Society, $2,500; and Catholic Social ^Services, $1,000. The total for non-local agencies is $22,578. Mrs. Robert Dobson will serve as chairman of the kick-off dinner. The Rev. Merle Meeden is president of the United Fund board. Millage Proposals "Fall Flat" Here The county millage proposals on Tuesday's ballot "both fell flat" here; a local official noted today. So did the voter turn-out, one of the lightest Saline has ever seen. Only 246 people went to the polls of a total of 1,978 registered in the city. The one-mill proposal for "justice" was slapped down by 189 "no" votes to only 54 "yes", more than three to one. It fared little better in the rest of the county: defeated by a three to one margin countywide, it was mashed by 10 to one in some rural precincts, one of which gave it no "yes" votes at all. The county total: 8980 "no"; 2978 "yes". The quarter-mill proposal for acquisition of future park land also failed but by a closer margin. Salinians voted 138 "lib" and 104 "yes". Countywide, it was defeated by 6875 "no" to 5052 "yes". Jan Thill, 17, a Saline High senior, and daughter of the Harry Thills of Canterbury Dr., was crowned "Miss Saline" in a ceremony sponsored by the Jaycees at'the Fairgrounds Thursday. __ Jan has livedan Saline for only- two. years, hut»sheV has been active in school goings-on since she came and has acquired friends by the dozens. Last year, she served on Student Council and in the Pep Club. This year she plans to join the Future Teachers' Association and will cadet-teach in other Saline schools, all part of her plan to become a physical education teacher. She expects to attend Eastern Michigan University; she "goes steady" with BiCk MacPhee who is now an EMU freshman. , (It was Rick to whom Jan went immediately after descending from the stage, to garner a kiss Of congratulation.) Her favorite hobby "outside of school", is boating; the family has a motor cruiser that has accounted for many pleasant trips on Lake Erie and in Canadian waters. The official crowning rites in the amphitheater at the Fairgrounds was one of the snappiest, fastest-paced rituals in the history of the Miss Saline contest. Part of the credit for this goes to Jack Kelley, who did the honors as emcee . . .' and part must undoubtedly go to the weatherman, who threatened havoc and destruction to the beauties' gowns and hair-do's. The misty sprinkle added to the suspense of the ceremony, but never did become a downpour. Panorama of Pets Hornets to Ope "We're satisfied," said Coach Clem Corona after last Saturday's three-way scrimmage with Blissfield and Hillsdale at Blissfield. But in preparation for the Hornet grid squad's first game, the season-opener this Friday against Vandercook Lake, Corona planned this week to add still "a few more plays" to the already-bulging team play- book. "We need to work on downfield blocking, too," he added. Corona singled out three linemen . . . Tom Laskey, Bill Ray, and Bob Fischer . . .as "showing improvement", and then he quickly added, "Well, they're all coming along." , In the scrimmage session at Blissfield, each team was allotted 20 plays, and, starting at their own 20-yard line, they ran those 20 plays regardless of interceptions, fumbles or touchdowns. ... ■Saline started on defense, taking on the Blissfield attack. The Royals pushed hard and finally gained the first tally of the scrimmage. ' '-_-'.' Next, the Hornets took the offense, against Hillsdale. The Salinians were unable to move the ball consistently. 'Saline then went back to -a defensive assignment, this time against Hillsdale . . . and.during this group of plays, Wes Gall showed why many successful football players have long arms. He downed a number of Hillsdale runners with little or no gains. Jerry Hill, climaxed the Hornets' defensive stand with a pass interception. ' The ball then went to the Hornet 20-yard line for another try - at offense . . . and now things began -to click. Keith Smith saw a lot of action in this part of the scrimmage, and he demonstrated why he is a prime contender for-a starting halfback assignment, with his quick corners and dodging. Donny Craigmile again banged, wedged and waded his way around, over and through opposing tacklers to, help bring the ball to the Blissfield 18-yard line. Quarterback Tom O'Sullivah then x spotted tall End Tom Laskey on the 5-yard line, ahd got away a rather wobbly pass to him just before being dropped by a Blissfield tackier. Laskey snagged the pass and was stopped just one foot short of the goal line. Craigmile got the honor of putting the ball across the line pn the next play. Later in this same series, O'Sullivah connected with another pass, for long yardage, this time to Halfback Jerry Hill. Saline again got charge of, the ball in the next series of plays. This time the second team, quarterbacked by - JV signal-caller Pete Slepsky, went to the scoreboard via the air route. Slepsky found Tim 'Davis alone in the middle of the field and hit him with a pass good for a touchdown. The play covered 70 yards. Again the Hornets switched to defense, and again it was Gall who led the team in cooling the Blissfield attack, with play after play being stopped with little or no gain. Tom Laskey showed that he, too, could reach . far enough to pay as he batted a Blissfield pass to the ground from very close range. 7 Once again on offense, the Hornets began making their professional style plays work for yardage and points against the Hillsdale gang. Highlights were Davis' 31- yard ramble which, ending on the 3, was converted to points by Craigmile. Davis scored, himself, from the 5, after another sustained drive. To end the action, the second group of Hornets came in to take on Blissfield in a series on defense and theii on offense. Two touchdown passes . . . one of 20 yards (Continued on Page 2) WITH THE IMPERTURBABLE GRANDEUR of a "Marmaduke", the Milton Stemen family's Great Dane, "Darton", holds his pose during the pet* show, while Stephanie uses him for a pony, and young Timothy gets a lift from his father. ■■ -.
