Fact-Finder's SENIOR CITIZENS' MEETING SLATED Senior Citizens of the Sa- RepOI"t AppeaFS line area will meet at 8 D.m. s\ *rs _ A Monday, at the Junior High Ull ■ _T Sg6 1A " School, at the corner of McKay and N. Ann Arbor St. •Anyone .,interested is welcome. ::-"•. JU. USE PLAN 43 Junior Deputies Steer Fair Traffic The smooth movement of hundreds and hundreds of cars, in and out of the fairgrounds parking areas, was directly due. to 43 Saline chanter Junior Deputies, led by Sheriff Deputy Erwin Henes. All members of the Saline group worked, in the course- of the" Fair; boys directed traffic there from 5 to 9 p.m. from Tuesday through Saturday. They also marched in the Fair parade, on Saturday, with the Ann Arbor group, which is only two or three members bigger . . . the total contingent in the parade was about 90. Seven or eight new members will be added to the Saline list tonight, at a "recruiting meeting", Henes said. The Pittsfield Township Planning Commission, assisted by _b° Washtenaw County Metropolitan Planning Com- ."foissionTlias cqmplefed.aprelim inarv land us_ plan ^for 1985, designed to guide 'the township through the present "dynamic period of rapid growth". A series of public meetings has been scheduled, to acquaint residents with the background and details of the ■plan., and different areas of the township will be discussed at each meeting. All of the meetings are slated, at 8 p.m. at the Town- shiD Hall. Area A will come under discussion on Monday, September 18: Area B on Tuesday, September 19; Area C on Wednesday, September 20; and Arpa D on Monday, September 25. Purposes of the plan include: "to encourage the use of natural resources . . ."; "to deter the overcrowding.of land by buildings and people"; "to alleviate congestion on public highways, roads, and streets"; and "to relate the development of Pittsfield" to surrounding cities and townships. Problems to be dealt with by use of the plan are the present inadequacy of roads, the township's "apartment boom", and annexations of parcels of land to all of the surrounding cities. The State Labor Mediation Board fact-finder's report, on which settlement of Saline school issues was based, appears complete on page 1A of The Reporter, today. (Because of the deluge of letters-to-the-editor concerning; teachers' pay, this week "Mailbag" also appears on page 1A, as well as in its usual location on the editorial page, 2.) The fact-finder was Morris Milmet. attorney with the firm of 'Milmet" and Vecchio," Detroit, one of about 10 factfinders appointed by the Mediation Board this year to deal with the widely scattered school negotiation break-downs, as well as industrial contract talks. ' He has not worked with the Mediation Board before this year, but he has a background in labor-law. Originally, from Holly, Mich., he graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 1946, and from the University of Michigan law school in 1949. In school mediation, he assisted at Harper Woods, where a settlement was worked out without need for factfinding recommendations; he is assigned now to Oak Park,- where mediation was still in progress, at- last report. Teachers Ballot 87-3 to Accept Contract Terms Agreement Reached In Midnight Session Saline children will go to school on Friday . . . and they'll be there one week longer next June. After a negotiators' session that lasted long past midnight, teachers voted 87-3 today to accept the contract terms that had been worked out. They will report to the schools for orientation on Thursday. The agreement was based on the opinion from a State Labor Mediation Board fact-finder, which recommended the board's proposed starting salary of §5,900 for degreed but inexperienced teachers . . . but it also suggested steps that go up faster and reach higher maximums than those proposed by the board. Both minimum and maximum salaries are lower than those sought by SEA, the teachers' bargaining agent. The fact-finder's salary schedule was accepted without change, but some adjustments were made in other areas of contention. Board negotiators agreed that the school will pay for individual medical insurance coverage, $110 for each teacher . . . $100 was suggested by the fact-finder . . . but they also will provide $5,000 in life insurance per teacher, which the fact-finder did not recommend. Other concessions were made by both sides: SEA "gave an allowance" for the board to employ industrial arts teachers at up to two steps above their normal place on the salary schedule, because "they are hard to get", explained Hal- lie Mehler, SEA president. The allowance was only for teachers in that field. The factfinder had recommended against deviations from the salary schedule, with the note that they would be "a matter of negotiation".- Summer employees are to be paid at the regular hourly rate. Teachers will receive a sabbatical leave, one year at half pay, after seven years. Sick leave will be increased to a day each month ior the first 10 years of employment here; iy2 days up to 20 years; and two days a month after 20 years. Four teachers have been with the Saline, school system for 20 years or more. SEA will also administer a "sick bank", operated like a blood bank, in which teachers will "deposit" a sick day so that anyone with, a prolonged illness can "draw from the bank". Teachers will have one "personal business day" a- bove sick leave; they have had two in the past, but both came out of sick leave. The new contract will provide, as did . last year's,, a half hour lunch period free of duties. The; exact cost of the final agreement has not yet been calculated, said Superintendent Harold JHintz, but he estimated $794,000 for salaries only, not counting fringe benefits. The - figure does not include longevity, for which one teacher alone will receive an additional $1,135, he noted. Neither does it include necessary upward adjustments for teachers who have recently obtained masters' degrees, he said. "I was notified by two,, just this morn- ning, that they have OVIA's now." Although a meeting of the School Board is scheduled tonight, the final agreements will not be ready for ratification at that time, Hintz (Continued on Page 3) oni€S "Children and Pets" are always the most photogenic departments at-the -Fair. Above, just a few of the ribbbon winners. More Fair photos next week! Float Note: Who Entered Winners? Fair Board members have been unable to determine who sponsored two of the winning floats in the junior division in the Fair parade-. . .and so they don't know where to send prizes. Unknown are the sponsors of the sailboat float, which placed second, and the "Litter Poppin- up" float, which came in third. First place in the junior division went to the Saline Lamb Club, -in senior competition, winners were the American Legion float, first, and Ypsilanti Township, second. Pastor to Get Honorary Degree Sunday The Rev. Robert Nelson will receive an. honorary Doctor of Divinity degree, from Landmark Baptist College, Hayward, Calif., at a service here Sunday. - " The degree will be present- fid at the 11 a.m. service at the Salihe Baptist Church, where the Rev. Mr. Nelson is pastor, by Dr. O. C. Harris, vice president and trustee of the college. It is to be given in recognition of Mr. Nelson's home missionary work and literary service to Landmark College; he has written a number of articles for' their magazine. He has also traded pulpits with Dr. Harris in the past. Mr. Nelson, a graduate of •Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pa., and Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary, has done graduate work at Eastern Michigan University. He has served as a home missionary for 13 years and has helped to found three churches in Michigan. "A farm without a whinny is a farm without a horse," observed Marion Crisovan^ 7, and that bit of sage philosophy won a pony for "the Russell CrisoVan homestead _on Willis Rd. She selected the name '-W__inny-loi>Me'' for the pony given away at the Fair, and judges quite agreed. So did her brother, Mike, 9, at right. Saddle, and martingale were given by Westside Hardware, Estes Drags.
