The Saline VOLUME 18, NUMBER 25, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 1967 10c PER COPY - §4 PER YEAR SWER SCHO Hornets Share League Gr own Pandemonium Breaks Loose In Locker Room Pandemonium exploded in the High School locker room Friday evening, when the Hornets discovered that they owned half of the conference crown. The jubilant co-champs showered their coach . . . which hasn't happened before in his eight years as Hornet mentor . . . cut down the basketball nets . . . and poured back out onto the floor to baffle the few remaining spectators. As far as the audience knew, the Hornets had just done a work- " manlike job of defeating the Chelsea squad . . . but what else was new? The "new" was a round- the-league upset that lifted Saline from a tie for second place to a tie for first: Dexter had defeated Lincoln and Dundee had bowed to South Lyon. The results: Saline and Lincoln each hold 7 wins, 3 losses; Dexter and Dundee . tied for the season with 6 and 4. In effect, Dexter had dumped Saline out of first place earlier in the season, only to dump them in again by trouncing Lincoln. Friday was a big night, anyway. Parents of team members and cheerleaders were introduced before the varsity game, and mothers _. -were presented with corsag- d(fet.s- Then the Hornets went - jPfto work on Chelsea. - - - ^ They came out in a toueh, moving defense that held the Bulldogs to only four points in the first quarter, while •Saline stacked up 19. The wide lead held throughout the -game, and Coach Don Jaeger fielded all players in the last half. Of the 14 who were dressed, 13 got into the scoring column. Hitting hardest for Saline were Bob Kirkpatrick with 16 points and Fred Franz with 12. Top-scoring Bulldogs were Jeff Hitchingham, 12; and John Lixey, 10. The final-score: 64-43. In Jaeger's years as coach here, the Hornets have captured the championship three times before . . . but other crowns were somewhat less unexpected. Friday's triumph was a matter of odds. Nevertheless, said Jaeger, "The kids earned it; it's not a give-away. Dexter did have something to do with it, but we live right and were ready for the break when it came. This is doubly nice because we went from the bottom of the league to the top in one year."

The final score for Chelsea, Friday, was 58-57. Leading Saline scorers were Tom Burr with 15, Jerry Lake with 14, and Bill Levleit with 12.

If that had been ..done, Cool Si Nord Retires After 35 Years Silas Nord, of 522 Canterbury, has retired after 35 years as an employee of Ypsilanti State Hospital . . . he began work there in 1932. before the hospital was a year old. Nord, who had worked in the hospital's nursing service office for more than 20 years, was honored at a retirement tea at the hospital, Friday; approximately 125 friends, some of them retirees who returned for the occasion, feted him at a party at the American Legion post in Milan Friday evening. Nord was born in Sweden and came to the United States with his family when he was 10 years old. He lived in Minnesota for a time and ! .hen in Detroit. He and Mrs. ord lived on Stony Creek Rd. before moving to Saline in 1948. Mrs. Nord, a nursing ward supervisor at Ypsilanti State Hospital, will complete her 25th year there in November. She also worked for five years at a state hospital in Kalamazoo before coming to YSH. Nord has some retirement plans:' he's a bowling enthusiast, and he looks forward to golfing and gardening, when weather permits. 2 Half- Centuries To End Sunday FFA Team Places High in Regional A Saline FFA team, which won first place in a district leadership contest in Dexter, has placed third in the regional event. James Burmeister and Richard Schneider, members of the local chapter, won the award with their demonstration on dairy judging Thursday in Hillsdale. This is the first year either youth has entered competition. 5,164,000 276,910 600,000. 100,000 45,000 23.090 $6,319,000 Proposition H (Swimming Pool) Natatorium (Build ing) $ 550,000 28,875 1,125 $ 580,000 Sunday marks the end of an era in the lives of two men who began their quite different occupations at the time when, as young men, their paths first crossed. Each plans to retire after the auction Sunday at the George Day farm on Day Rd., south of Mooreville community center near Milan. One of them is George Day, who settled on this farm at age 19, having come here from Rising 'Sun, O., with his parents. The other is Guy Thompson, who assisted his father in auctioning the farm tools, at that time, of the family who moved ,'off the farm so the Days could move on to it. Sunday, Day will have fulfilled a desire to farm for 50 years in the same place. His 70th birthday is Monday. He will retire on the homestead that was his parents' until they moved into -town 30 years ago and later died. Day's brothers and sisters have scattered to other states. Guy Thompson will auction the Day farm equipment before he, too, retires. The auction 50 years ago was one of his first. The auction on Sunday, he says, will be one of his last. George Day is the father of Mrs. Don Jeppesen. Don, a lifetime resident of Saline, is cashier at Citizens Bank of Saline. The couple lived here until last July, -when they moved to Milan. Day has a son living in Ann Arbor. The horse that drew the wagon that moved Rita Jep- pesen's grandparents from Ohio is long gone, of course, but the wagon itself has continued in use and now needs only minor repairs. Like other of the original tools, it won't be" up for auction. "In fact," Don said, "I've hidden it so no one will think it's to go. We're 'going to keep it for fun, such as hay rides." FIREMEN PLAN BALL The annual Firemen's Ball, sponsored by Saline Volunteer Fire Department, wiE be from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, March 11, with music by Ken Volz. Plans Programs x4bout Cancer The Saline Child Study Club will snonsor a program made available by the American Cancer Society, Thurs-. day, March 9, in the Saline Savings Bank community room. The program will consist of several films designed to help individuals understand and detect the early stages of cancer. After the films, there will be a auestion and answer period with local-doc. tors presiding to answer oral or written questions from the audience. The afternoon program for women will be from 1 -p___. to 3 p.m. Baby-_itting will be provided without charge in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church (across the street from the Savings Bank).* Two mothers, assisted by members of the Future Nurses Club, will be in atten-" dance. Juice will be served to the children. The evening program for both men and women wilt be from 8 pan. to 10 pjn. ' Unquestionably a record-setter' in Michigan, if not everywhere, was the more than 200 per cent United Fund campaign waged here last fall. Said Ron Bontse- ma (right), Michigan United Fund field representative: "It's not very often I get a chance to award a plaque for a drive like that!" As a matter of fact, he couldn't recall that it had ever happened before. He presented the complimentary plaque to Gerald Bahnmiller, Saline's campaign chairman. f Ups and Downs^ _ Two of the three children been a patient at St. Joseph of Mr. and Mrs. John Dwyer Hospital for four weeks, is are still in St. Joseph Mercy walking now, with assistance, Hospital with hope of get- and expects to return home ting home this week.
