Council Election Returns Challenged Hubert; Beach, defeated write - in candidate in last week's Council election, has filed a petition for 1 a recount. Beach,* whose write - in tally was surprisingly high, als6 asks that "someone with expert knowledge of the voting machines" test them to see whether they were in proper operating condition at the time of the election. No counter - petition was filed by the city within the 48 - hour limit. Beach declined comment this week, but in a statement immediately after the election he assailed the whole statewide write - in procedure, besides charging that various functional failures had occurred on Saline's machines. His petition asks 'for recount and inspection of' machines in both precincts; and the law requires that, if a machine is found to have been defective, votes cast on it are eliminated from the count, and the election total is takeii from the remaining machines. If all four Saliner machines should be rejected as faulty, another election would be required. Elimination df one or more machines from last week's election would not change the results of the election, since the four candidates received about the same proportion of votes on all machines. Three incumbents, Jameson Ford, Jack Measley, t and Edward Marsh, were re - elected; while Beach trailed by only 171 votes. Observers consider it extremely unlikely that all four machines will be rejected after inspection. The county Board of Canvassers will meet, "probably the first part of next week, to determine if the facts appear to sustain the need for a recount," according to County. Clerk Robert Harrison, with whom; the petition was filed. - If-a- recount is .deemed- -necessary, it will beVhe second in Salihe"'s "history. The first reversed the results of a council election in 1958. Beach's petition reads, in part: "This petitioner is informed' and has reason to believe that a discrepancy exists in the returns for said election. "This petitioner is informed and has reason to believe that several errors and - or omissions of form and - or style were made by election officials at said election, including violation of secrecy of the ballot and. an inadequacy of voter instructions. -. "This petitioner is informed and has reason to believe that serious defects existed in one or more of the voting machines used in said election; these defects may .be due to either improper adjustment, mechanical deficiency, wear, or other causes. "This petitioner feels that had there not existed the above .complaints, that there would have been a material difference in the results of said election. "This petitioner feels that a suspicion has been cast on this election and the entire election process. "This petitioner prays for relief from this wrong and requests the Washtenaw County Board, of Canvassers to recount said election in precincts 1 and 2 of the City, of Saline, Michigan. He further petitions that they cause someone with expert knowledge of the voting- machines used in said election to examine and test said machines to determine whether, in fact, defects. or failures existed in said machines and the extent, and nature thereof and the reason therefor, if any be found." TO CELEBRATE 89TH BIRTHDAY Levi Teachout, who makes his home with his niece, .-, Mrs. Hugh Austin of 9375 Saline-Milan Rd., will celebrate $ his 89th birthday on-Monday, Nov. 17.

Machine Tool Co., $593.75 also raised the mercury in the United Fund thermometer; and R. & B. sponsored a new event this year, a special breakfast for businessmen and industrialists to kick off that portion of the drive. Payroll deduction donations from Ford Motor Co. employees were in excess of $21,000; and the Ford Motor Co. corporate gift was $4,000..
