There are no raspberries yet, but anything can happen . . . Last siimmer the Stimpsons had a small corn plant growing beside their sidewalk on N. Lewis St. . . . and one sunny day the congregation emerged from St. Paul's Church and spotted an ear of corn on the plant. A lot of "oh"- ing and "ah"-ing ensued, before somebody discovered that Ted had tied the ear onto the plant with a bit of twine. But the raspberry bush is authentic, insists the photographer, who . . . being a suspicious soul , . . checked.it carefully. ot: Xn & «F Campaign Lacks nd Week To Confer With Coiinty Farmers Salinians, for the first time, can now call the Police-Department on Sundays and holiday, and at night . . . and expect to get an answer. The round-the-clock service here is possible with the addi tion of several "dispatchers", who will also take training as patrolmen. The improvement was authorized by City Council in July. In the past, Saline had only enough police officers for pat rol in the "off hours". After the rest of the city staff moved into the present City Hall at the main corner, there was a short hiatus in even daytime communications . . . until the police staff grew large enough to keep a full-time man, in the office while others were on patrol. After that, residents who wanted to reach Saline police after work-hours still had to call the county Sheriff's Department to do so. But the local office is now manned 24 hours a day, seye'n days a week. Among the dispatchers are Daniel Root, 23, and James Sy- mons, 21, both of whom will attend a state police training program in Saginaw, through the month of November. Eventually, at least one will also go on patrol, Police Chief James Ley- leit said. Both dispatchers live .in Saline. Root is a veteran of three- years in the Army Military^ Police, ,one year in Viet Nam and two at Ft. Bragg, N.C. Symons is the son of Clayton Harold Symons, Milan superintendent of schools. Neither dispatcher is married. The city now has two patrolmen out between the hours of 2:30 and 5:30 p.m. and between 8 p.m. and 5, a.m. Only one man is on. patrol during the rest 6i = _he day. TRfe iieed for dispatchers and roUhd-the-clock telephone availability is apparent in the fact that the department now handles approximately 1,000 messages a month. In a recent 15- day period,"they received 1,028 incoming messages, 453 t e 1 e- phone calls, and 575 radio messages. The department now has two incoming telephone lines;: the public uses the one in the telephone directory, 429-7000. The other is expected to be changed before the new directories are printed; consequently it has not been published. The dispatchers handle other duties than telephone communications, Levleit, pointed out in his monthly report to Council. They also "type reports and letters, administer the parking meter violation procedures, and conduct other administrative assignments which were heretofore neglected." In the month of September, Levleit's report shows, officers of the department worked a total of 1504 hours and 40 minutes. While conducting regular patrol duties, officers assisted seven persons and-or vehicles with gasoline, repairs or other assistance; made 18 investigations of suspicious persons and- or vehicles; made 510 property inspections and three liquor inspections; issued 30 verbal warnings for minor traffic violations; and investigated 261 original complaints and* offense- reports, 32 supplementary investigations .and six assists or other department complaints, for a total of 299 investigations. The officers traveled a total of 5730 miles while conducting their patrol and investigative activities.

These questions are part of the weU- known quarterly surveys of consumer attitudes conducted by the center for the past 16 years. Information obtained from individuals is held in strictest confidence, and no person is ever identified. Each interview becomes part of a report which only represents the country as a whole. Reports of Survey Research Center surveys are used by government officials, business, e- conomists, and educators in their search for a better understanding of conditions existing in the United States today. THERMOMETER GOES UP — BUT STAYS BLANK The Saline Area United Fund drive, at the end of its second week, had no report at all today. The campaign thermometer was put up Wednesday morning, outside City Hall, but there was nothing to record on it. None of the campaign leaders was able to learn what donations had been made, if \any, toward the area's $23,- 724 goal. . Campaign chairman Don Church said he had been unable to contact any of the area or special division chairmen to inquire about their progress, but he was "quite sure they were making collections". They have been instructed to turn in donations to the Rev. Lawrence Cole, treasurer of the United Fund board, Church said. Mr. Cole has received no reports from any area or special division,.he said.but "the drive is continuing". Even industrial contributions have not been reported, he noted, though many of these usually come in early in the campaign. Some funds have "probably been collected", he said, but none have been turned in to him, and none have been deposited in the bank. President of the United Fund, William Crim, Jr., said, "Nothing has been brought in to me." The*TJnite_rFund drive in Saline is traditionally planned to be completed in two weeks *.... . but, in recent years, it never has been. Sometimes plagued by* bad weather and "slowed by numerous other activities, it has occasionally dragged on until Christmas. The goal is always reached, eventually. But the drive is usually able to show partial returns of at least 10 per cent by the end of the second week; last year's drive stood at 39 per cent at this timel Last year's drive also ended_at more than 200 per cent of its objective. This year's budget, $23,- 724, represents an increase.of 55 per cent ove'r the JL9.66 -goal, but it is less than was actually collected i n • 1966.
