Yet, Saline keeps six full- time police officers hopping, and by far the largest amount of their time is spent on a category now listed as "2.14 - Miscellaneous". These are offenses not covered by state statutes and hence not covered in the state police filing system.'This year, Saline po lice have put their own filing system in use: It breaks down "2.14" in classifications running from 2.1411 to 2.1445. They include everything but the kitchen sink, and they even cover the refrigerator, if it's abandoned. Offenses under 2.14 rose in one year from 145 to 216 ... things like agriculture law violations, cruelty to animals, conservation, law violations, contempt of court, contributing to delinquency of a minor, ATTENDED STATE FAIR MEET; SET SALINE FAIR SEPT, 5-9, '66 Three Saline men returned from the State Fair Association meeting in Detroit Monday nieht with dates set for the Saline Fair on September 5 through 9. _The five-day event will be^ gin on Tuesday this year, rather than . Wednesday as it has in the past. Children's •Day will be on Wednesday as. always.; Happyland Carnival representatives told "Don Wiedman, president of < the Saline Fair Board, Webb" Har- wood and Ray Girbach that every attempt j\viU be made to have a number of children's rides ready on Tuesday. The- day of special ride prices for youngsters, however, will remain Wednesday. Having a five-day affair is a break with tradition as the Fair has always'run only four days. This will make it feasible for livestock judging to take place the day prior to school opening so that young participants will not misfs school in order to take. part. It will also provide an extra evening for tractor-pulling events. excavations, false criminal reports, escapes, malicious destruction, building code violation, prowlers, health laws, nuisances, loitering, refusal to yield telephone . . . and anything else that comes up. Police last year, also dealt with three cases of arson, 15. fire law violations, and 16 accidental fires. Their other activities included checking out 11 abandoned cars (not stolen); 78 animal bites, 15 civil disputes, and delivery »of 24 emergency messages. They investigated 38 missing persons, not counting runaways; 24 cases of lost or found property; 47 suspicious cars or persons; and seven suicides; and they made 124 liquor inspections. a-j And ii that doesn't sound like a year's work, there's still all matters concerning traffic, all kinds of accidents, assistance to other departments, character checks (they did 52), serving notices, civil defense work, and dealing with juveniles. The report, shows that general, non-criminal complaints increased 37.55 per cent . . . but accidents dropped by one third. - The first lucky winners ot^the ISck'-Wee_»ii_.
