B On Negotiations Phone Books Will Come Out Seventeen members of the School Advisory Council have signed a resolution asking that next year's teacher contract negotiations begin 90 days before the end of the year. - The resolution cites a section of the current master contract which provides that negotiations must begin if either party requests them, any time after the 90-day period begins ... or, the first week in April. The Council, which usually has one non-member guest and sometimes two, as its meetings, last week had 14 visitors. The sudden surge of public interest may have been due to the up- FAIR BOARD TO BANQUET The October meeting of the Saline Community Fair Board will be a banquet at 7 p.m. October 25, at the Masonic Temple, for board members and their husbands and wives.

All meetings are open to the public. (The Council has added another word to its name, which now reads, in full: "Saline Area Schools Citizens Advisory Council.'7) The resolution on negotiations • "recommends that the School Board, or the SEA, make a formal written request that negotiations for the 1968-69 school year begin 99 days prior to the end of the contract year as provided for in the current master contract, and that if one of the said parties fails to make said formal request, the other should make said request". It was signed by Alton C. Finkbeiner, George J. Bonich, Allan W. Grossman, Daniel S. Lirones, D. L. Clary, A. E. Gall, R. C. McNally, Carl D. Miller, Elaine D. O'Connor, Ruth Vila, Kristeen R.

Union Voted Down at R & B R & B Tool Co. employees last week rejected the UAW- CIO as a bargaining agent by a vote of 41-25. The company employs about 105 persons; 73 of these were eligible to vote in the election. Although R. & B. Tool Co. has been established here since 1942, last week's election was the first ever held at the plant. School Fluoride Program Requests Due Here Monday Final requests and fees are now being accepted for the annual topical fluoride program in the schools. The program is sponsored by the Saline Room Parents Organization in cooperation with the Michigan department of Health. The fee of $3.75 and consent card must be returned before Monday, October 16, in order for the application to be accepted. For further information, parents may contact the fluoride committee chairman, Mrs. Paul Hale, 429-9094. iU. There won't be any 1967 telephone books here; instead, they will come out early in 1988, a- bout two months later than usual. The major reason for the change is that the SaUne and .Ann Arbor listings will be com- -Hned into one book, Kenneth Conway, district manager of Genera1. Telephone Co., said. Each exchange will be listed in its own section of the book. Listings for the next Saline telephone directory will close en January 5; and the books will be mailed by the directory company on February 23, directly to the customers, Conway said. In previous years, listings have closed in October for the book to be mailed in late November. The new book, however, will contain yellow pages only for Saline. The Saline exchange now has 2,372 accounts, a gain of 187 over 2,185 accounts in October, 196S. But the number of accounts does not reflect the number of telephones and extensions, Conway pointed out; for example, the Ford plant, with "200 to 300" telephones, is listed as one account. Each account gained indicates around six movements of subscribers in and out. he said; and it may reflect as many as 11 changes in the course of a year. leadline Nears - Two Withdraw, ne Undecided With the filing deadline owner of the Corner Drug only a week away, the city Store for 25 years, he is now still has no candidates for employed in the'pharmacy at the three council seats to be Saline Community Hospital. filled in the November election.

Jaycees Run Cool Contest Striking Ford Workers Attend Classes Here Torrents of Ford Motor Co. employees, on strike, pour in and out of the Masonic Temple building every Thursday and Friday, to attend classes on the union's history and objectives. Their UAW constitution requires that they participate either in the classes or in picket duty, in order to receive strike assistance checks . . . and a total of $35,000 a week in strike assistance comes to SaUne plant employees. Four classes every Thursday and four each Friday are conducted by Larry Harbolt, UAW Education Department coordinator, and Emerson Baringer, of Jackson, who i s connected with the Detroit office. Approximately 150 "students" attend each class, for which they must come from their homes in Manchester, Brooklyn, Adrian, Tecumseh, Milan, Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor, Belleville, and as .far away as Toledo. All are employees of the Saline plant. With 1,610 Ford employees on strike in this area, about 1,410 are drawing assistance. On duty at the Local 892 headquarters in the Hagen building are seven persons working as "community service" without pay. They spend 20 to 30 hours a week to issue checks, file IBM cards, and provision the strike trailer at the Ford Mptor Co. parking lot. Of the $35,000 in strike assistance issued here, about 96 per cent is cashed in local banks, Charles Gorham, financial secretary of the local, said. He estimated that "better than 40 per cent" of that sum is spent in local stores and pointed out that "at least $2,000 a week is expended" by the community service committee for meals, gas, equipment, and supplies for the strike trailer. Local businessmen, however, reported a noticeable drop in business since the advent of the strike, since employees of the Saline plant have always cashed and spent a large proportion of their checks here. Union members are reminded that they may sign up for food stamps at union headquarters, a program- that began a week ago. Mrs. Mary Lou Ran- d o 1 p h, commodities service chairman of the Washtenaw County Council, UAW-CIO, is assisting in the program. (The Ford strike has produced "no lay-off so far" at any of the Hoover plants, which produce parts for Ford Motor Co., and "we are continuing at the moment on a satisfactory basis of production," a spokesman said. At R. & B. Tool Co., "no effect whatever" was reported.) _ttEPRESENTING JENSEN SCHOOL CLASSMATES, Judy Herter gave fan mail written by 3rd and 4th graders .to one of the Corps officers for distribution to the members of the marching group.
