The %&?■•■■■ VOLUME 18, NUMBER 34 - WEDNESDAY, MAY 3,1967 -3t ■££■ 'S 10c PER COPY - $4 PER YEAR BASE NEARS $50 MILL Petitioners Seek Change ol Zoning For Michigan Ave. Consternation Owners of property on the north side of E. Michigan Ave. have petitioned the city to' rezone 10 lots from commercial t o R-2, residential two-family zoning. . The petition, which carries 10 signatures, covers the entire block from Davenport to City to Operate Pick-up Service For Rubbish The city will operate its own garbage and rubbish collection service, probably beginning about July 1. After study of the possibilities and bids submitted by individuals, Council this week rejected all bids. Details of the city operation are not completed, said Administrator Mike Strait, but the city will "try back yard pick-up and see if it can work out." In other action Monday, Council tabled the proposed restaurant ordinance until May 15, and "will invite County Health Department Engineer Joe Price to attend the meeting then, to give suggestions and information. The ordinance, if passed, will be policed by the County Health Department, as are regulations in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Council also instructed the city attorney to prepare an < amendment;, to the ordinance I which now forbids maintenance of any farm animals inside the-- city -limits.—The change was sought by High School agriculture instructor Aton Ealy so that vo-ag students could keep livestock at the school's farm for educational purposes. A request from Gottlob Walker, to lease several parking spaces for his employees, was denied by Council because there would be no way to prevent the public from using the spaces and policing would be complicated. It was also felt that such an action would set a precedent that might create a demand for leased spaces that the city could not provide. Saline will join the Southeast Council of Governments, an organization of over 100 governmental units — counties, cities, and school districts in southeast Michigan. Maple streets, except for the site of Bahnmiller Funeral Home. Council received the petition Monday and referred it to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation. Reasons given by the petitioners for the proposed zoning change are: "There is already too much commercial zoning in Saline in proportion to the available land area." "The zoning of this property is strip zoning which is an inefficient and wasteful way of using land." "This is one of the major entrances to Saline, all of the property being located on Michigan Ave., and one of the most attractive, yet, a single additional break in the residential pattern of this block might effectively destroy its residential usefulness, and is a threat to further improvements of the homes by the residents." "Saline already has sufficient tax base in relation to population as a result*of the Ford plant development and does not need to force additional areas into higher uses for that purpose." SCHOOL CONTRACT TALK TO START THURSDAY :J:.

Dr. Augenstein ^To be Speaker At Graduation coming year is estimated at $49,995,000, with some township valuations not yet available . . . but it won't go over 850,000,000, according to Howard Thayer, deputy superintendent of the Intermediate School District. The new figure is close to S12.5 million higher than last year's district valuation, $37- 532,243 . . . and virtually all of the increase is accounted for by the City of Saline. The city's valuation also shot up $12.5 million this year, largely due to the completion of is $4,253,500. The lower valuation is due to the fact that recent tax legislation removed personal property on farms from the tax rolls, explained Thayer. York Township's valuation is up about $200,000, in the area within the Saline School District. Valuation there is now $2,872,115. Freedom Township also shows an overall increase, but in this district only about $30,000 more ... to this year's figure of $327,363. New valuation figures are not yet available for Lodi, Bridgewater, o r Pittsfield townships, but Thayer estimated that the three would produce an increase of about $600,000 for this school district. Their equalized valuations last year were $6,242,- 474 for Lodi; $1,209,858 for Bridgewater; and $7,459,981 in Pittsfield. Interpretation Disney Films To be Shown Here May 13 Three of Walt Disney's most popular short movies will be shown here on Saturday, May 13, in a Film Festival "for children of all ages".

Incorporated in 1966, Y.O.S. is now planning its . second Christmas project . . . but the first, in 1966, "resulted in indebtedness which •this film festival will help to eliminate". President of Y.O.S. is Robert Beauchamp, of Saline. Other members of the board are Thomas Mbceri, George Marti, and the Rev.. Armin C. Bizer, all of Ann Arbor.

A,,& .M.Chevrolet.Co: has been purchased by -Bart Strahley, former president of Jackson Chrysler - Plymouth, and the Saline firm has been re-named "Strahley Chevrolet Co." The change went into effect Monday. No changes in personnel are contemplated, and no extensions or additions are in prospect at this time, Strahley said. The company no longer has an Olds- mobile franchise but it will carry the full line of Chevrolet passenger cars and trucks. A grand opening will be scheduled in the near future, the new owner said. A&M Chevrolet Co. in the past has handled about 450 new cars (including trucks) a year, Strahley said. The firm, located at 7895 E." Michigan Ave., now has 22 employees. Strahley was employed as district manager for Oldsmo- bile at the time when Art Moehn was a part owner of A & M. Moehn now has the Chevrolet dealership in Jackson. Strahley expects to move to Saline in about two weeks with his wife,"Helen, and two sons, aged 14 and 6. Rural sections of the school district show very lit- one that is almost entirely within the Saline School District, dropped by more than a third of a million dollars.

The extension arrived Saturday morning, one day before the date on which the state had ordered the park closed due to substandard facilities. Now managing the park, and now in residence there, are Mr. and Mrs. Don Peddle, acting for Louis Ruggierello, of Detroit, who has purchased Woodside. The Peddles also manage Pleasant Lake Trailer Park (24 mobile homes) and a park in Clip I To Assist 96 Local Children An extended Title I program was launched here this week to assist 96 local youngsters, through trips during the school day and special sessions after, school twice a week, . • 'Children selected to take- part in, t h e program were "those-we felt would gain a lot from such trips and extra sessions • we expect it will aid them in school,", said Kay Burr, who is in charge of the project. It is a part of the Title I reading program that she directs. . -The group will also meet mornings during the last two Weeks of June, after school is" out for the summer. ,, Assisting in the program will be Jensen School Principal Ruby Kuhl; the assistant principal, Margaret Liv- •ingstpne, who will act as trip coordinator; approximately nine Saline teachers and several .volunteers; and, as consultant, William Eary, of Ann Arbor. Eary was.recently named educational consultant for the University of Wisconsin, where he will teach this summer, He expects to move to Milwaukee in, June.. (35 motel apartments and 35 trailers). ' Peddle declined to reveal the length of time granted for Woodside to bring sewer, water supply, and wiring up to State Health Department standards because, he said, "some people would take advantage of it and wait to the last minute for cleaning up. Some of the folks won't do any cleaning up until they know they'll be evicted." But a major clean-up program is under way, he said, with all. trash and junk cars to be disposed of. "Our first job is to correct the wiring and sewer system. When we get those out. of the way we can proceed on something else," Ped- dles.saij^- ';W.e .wilLalsp-make quite a' few other' changes; we have an architect drawing up plans." He has been in the business of managing and remodeling trailer parks for about five years, he said. The Peddles said that they would "appreciate -the patience of the people in the park *until we can get this taken care of. We want, to make it pleasant and liveable, and we have a lot of work to be done." But trailer owners can now be certain that they do not have to move, he emphasized. Man Falls From Trailer, Hit by Car Earl Daisher, 64. of 5901 Sharon Hollow Rd., suffered a broken left leg- Saturday afternoon when he fell from a tractor-drawn farm trailer and then was struck by a car. The car was driven by Norman K. Akarakcian, 41, of Dearborn, who was driving on Wagner Rd. near Ellsworth Rd., when the accident occurred.
