Salin orter VOLUME 19, NUMBER 9 - WEDNESDAY, NOV. 8, 1967 10c PEE COPY — §4 PER YEAR CITY BALLOT Where Thereps Smoke • • "Throw Another Log on the Fire" was the theme song at the Boy Seoul, camp-out Saturday and Sunday at Saline Valley Farms and the voices of Nature, if any, were drowned out by the sound of chattering teeth. In all fairness to the Scouts, however, it must fee noted that they stayed for two days, despite blizzards and below-freezing temperatures . . . while the photographer stuck it out only for an hour. Determined but chilly members of the Eagle patrol, above, are Dave Hatfield (left), Mike Schuette (seated), Barry Fritts (behind Mike), and Robert Hatfield. Almost hungry enough to eat the foil, members of the Bat patrol retrieved their dinners from the flames and prepared to dig in: Dennis Martin, Keith Martin, Bill Hanselman, and Dennis Bishop. More photos of the Scouts' chilly weekend will be found elsewhere in this issue.

Only 22 per cent of Saline's 1,675 registered voters went to the polls. With 366 persons balloting, Measlev led the ticket with 262 votes. Ford received 253, and 240 votes went to Marsh. Two other candidates, Hubert Beach and Paul Sibson, received 146 and 108 votes respectively. Measley (whose first name is really "Jack", not '.'John") is now a production control supervisor at the Ford Motor Co. plant here. He is also studying industrial management at Cleary College. He moved to Saline 10 years ago and was employed as a police officer here for two years before beginning his college work in 1964. Ford is a native Salinian and graduate of Saline High School.

Donald Kraushaar, and James England. Ken Clark and Mrs. Wanty were appointed earlier to fill vacancies. Re-elected were Crim, Richard Payeur, Allan Grossman, and Mrs. Carl O'Brien. The coun'cil still has several vanancies, and anyone interested in serving is asked to call one of the officers. All meetings are open to the public. At the annual meeting, the group also approved a recommendation to the Board of Education "that specific area for agricultural studies, classroom, laboratory and shop be provided for in the new high school." The action was taken after rural members of the council said they felt that an earlier facilities study had under-emphasized the importance of the agricultural program here. Speakers at the meeting were Walter Quillico and Edward Phillips, representatives of the Board. The next meeting is scheduled December 6. Ford Oil Co., a Marathon distributor. Marsh, an electrical engineer employed by Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn, is a member of the Regional Planning Commission and the Saline Auxiliary Police.

City to Buy Second Packer For $1,000 City Council has authorized the purchase of a used garbage packer truck from the city of Dearborn, for a total price of $1,000. The packer has already been here for some months, with rental paid to Dearborn when it was used. It is eight years old and is smaller than Saline's new packer, which cost over $18,000. The older packer will be used on a "stand-by" basis, City Administrator Mike Strait said. No change will be made in the present pickup schedule, but the smaller machine will: be available if snow or mechanical problems slow collections by the new, larger vehicle. CITY TO PLACE 27 LINDEN TREES City Council has. authorized City Administrator Mike Strait to order 27 linden trees . . . 1 ~V_> inches in diameter ... to be planted on lawn extensions in the city's annual planting program. Total cost of the trees, purchased from Mason's Nursery, was approved at $405, or $15 each. Council also accepted a bid of $3,250 from McFarland Tree Service, to cut down and remove dead trees in the city. „_„__._ „ „ . .„ , , ^ _ .
