"The stationing of an ambulance in Milan . . . would be too far south in the county," the letter said.

Bahnmiller's closing date was October 1. Said Mayor George Johnson today: "It would be nice to have an ambulance in Saline, and I would like to encourage them to locate one here. But this iust came up for the first time Monday, and it will require some study." He added: "The- general feeling of the council seems to be that they would want the concurrence of the firemen before taking any action concerning the new fire hall. In any case, we cannot deal directly with a private firm, though it might be possible through a contract with the county." The possibib'tv will be dis- cus.°ed at a "fire meeting" next Mondav at the City Hall, he said.

The second floor would then be used for a court, council chambers, planning commission, and conference rooms. The entire ground floor would be in use by the police department, and a full basement would become a Civil Defense headquarters. Superior expects to place one ambulance in Ypsilanti Township, one in Chelsea, one in Ann Arbor, and one between Ann Arbor and the west edge of the county. "We feel that this arrangement would offer adequate service to all areas of the >county except the Milan-Saline area," their letter said. BILL MEISTER APPOINTED TO COUNCIL .Vandals with B-">"5 gun... have paused "a ffreat deal of dam- ago" in the city in recent weeks, police said today; and "every effort will be made to prosecute" the miscreants if they are found. Residents were reminded that a city ordinance specifically prohibits discharging any firearm, spring gun. or air gun inside the city limits. Violators are responsible for the damage don ., Po"ice Chi°f Jim Levleit said; and Barents can be held responsible for damages done by their minor children. Vandals recentlv have been responsible for destruction at Houghton School. Gross Farm Equipment Co., SaUne Mercantile Co., and a number of houses in the area, Levleit said. B-B's and thrown rocks caused so much damage to the outer skins % of the portable classrooms at Houghton School that the siding may have to be replaced, he said. In the other buildings, windows have been broken and lights shot out. "An investigation is being made 'to determine who is responsible", Levleit said, and all of the buildings are being watched night and day.

"We have already "authorized architects to prepare plans and specifications to remodel William Meister, group vice president of Hoover Ball and Bearing Co., was appointed Monday by the "City Council to. fill a vacancy created by the recent resignation of Donald Dechert. Meister, 57, lives at 435 Mills Rd. He has been a resident of Saline for 21 years and has served for two years on the city planning commission. He was a member of the Saline Area United Fund board for three years and president for one year, and he has served as chairman of the United Fund industrial drive for seven years. He is also a member of the board of directors of Hoover Ball and Bearing Co. The council term, vacated by Dechert when he moved to Dearborn, runs through December 31, 1967. Meister has made Ho decision, he said, as to whether he will be a candidate on the November ballot for another term. Petitions for council candidates, for this year's election, must be filed 20 days before the November 7 election day, as required by the city charter. In even-numbered years, they must be filed at the time of the primary elections for county and state offices. The goal for the 1967-68 Saline Area United Fund drive has been set at $23,724, and a kick-off dinner will launch the campaign on October 12. The new budget is an increase of 55 per cent over last year's $15,290 goal . . . but it is considerably less than was actually donated here, when the 1967 drive soared to a spectacular conclusion, well over 200 per cent. The S23.724 goal includes a reserve fund of $2,500 "for emergencies", and it provides for two agencies new to the Saline fund. One of those budgeted for the first time hwe is the national Cvstie Fibrosis fund, alloted $1,200 in the SaUne fund. President of the coun- tv CF chapter is Mrs. Robert Starling, and 10 other Salinians are members of the board of directors. The CF drive has been assisted by Jaycees and Jaycee Auxiliary here, in the past. Also added to the United Fund budget this year is Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County. A child welfare and family agency providing a wide variety of services, it has assisted 36 cases in Saline during the past year. The United Fund budget includes $325 for Catholic Social Services. _ ^ J^cal__participattng._or^anv izatibns include Saline Hecre- ation. $3,000; Saline Social Service, $550; Saline Library, $1,000;. B o y Scouts, $125; Cub Scouts. $150; Girl Scouts and Brownies, $125. All were budgeted for the amounts they requested. From last year's "over the top" donations, an additional $6,250 was allocated to the library, with $4,750 extra going to the recreation program. County and state agencies in the new budget are: Amer ican Red Cross, $4,360; Michigan. United Fund, $3,193; Portage Trails Boy Scout Council', $2,511; Huron Valley Girl Scout Council, $1,- 970; Salvation Army, $1,000; Huron YaUey Child Guidance Clinic, $215; Washtenaw Association for Retarded Children, $500; and Michigan Children's Aid Society, $1,- 000. Mrs. Paul Woods is chairman of the kick-off dinner, which will be held at the American Legion Hall and is sponsored by Universal Die Casting Division. Don Church is campaign chairman; United Fund president is William Crim, "Jr. The budget committee is headed by John Dwyer, assisted by Mrs. Donald Leidheiser and Mrs. Robert Dobson.
