VOLUME 19, NUMBER 30 ~ WEDNESDAY, APRDL 3, 1968 10c PER COPY — 84 PER YEAR SCUTTL m >*%- i NEW EQUIPMENT FOR SALINE HOSPITAL gets once-over from members of the Hospital Auxiliary. Mrs. Mary Woods, Mrs. John Lochey and Mrs. Sam Lambarth examine the Spectrophotometer and the Flame Photometer that help Lab Technician Charles Slay (right) to perform body fluid- /tests, for Saline Hospital patients. The equipment enables Slay to perform 98 per cent of such tests in the hospital. Before, most of these tests had to be jobbed out to other hospital labs. The Auxiliary, headed by Mrs. Woods, gave the equipment to the hospital recently, as the group's regular annual gift to Saline Community, financed in large part by the. Auxiliary's Autumn Snjopgasbord and card parties. Mrs. Woods is presidentof, the Auxiliary, and Mrs. Lambarth is vice president. The group gave $1,200 for purchase of the equipment. - Reporter Staff Photo ■»* *'1,HHM_2^___' HPfa . *?** «x IMF, v :** * i'jV. if*** *- ^ w-f ***** '■: *art(H_«FW_HB_HB^. .t-Waiftf , * * V- *' • ' ..-___ A* "CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN", Saline High Junior Class Play, is shown in the shaping-up stage early this week. The comedy of life in the early part of the 20th century tells about the parent vs. children conflict in a family of a dozen children ... so the cast is neces^ sarily large. In the photo, Cheerleader Joe Scales, played by Mike Romelhardt, is about to be put down, in his quest for a "soda date" with one of the girls in the family. Father, played by Joe Bassett, concedes that a few minutes at the ice cream parlor would be harmless enough ... if Father himself goes along as chaperone. The Junior Play begins its three- night ran at the High School Little Theatre this Thursday . . . and continues through Saturday. « Annual OES 'White Breakfast Set for April 11 The Rev. T. W. Menzel, pastor of Bethel United Church of Christ in Freedom Township, will be the speaker at the annual OES White Breakfast, at 9:30 a.m. on Maundy Thursday, April U, at the OES hall.

Stolen Truck [ Runs 50 Cam Off the Road The driver bf a stolen truck that forced "about 50" cars off the road Monday afternoon was finally taken into custody by Police Officer Bob Russell, after the truck Hit a parked car in Ypsilanti. Leading the hair-raising pursuit, in the truck, was. a 29-year-old escapee from Ypsilanti State Hospital, Robert Pruitt, of near, Ann Arbor. He was returned to the hospital after the episode; he was not injured in the collision, police said.

Fine weather helped, but so did the extensive discussion that had preceded the election. Although election officials seldom got a break in which to relax, voters were still lined up outside the building all the way to the sidewalk, even after dark.

Board members expressed Proposal Sinks By 2-1 A $580,000 bond issue for a swimming pool was defeated by Saline School District voters, Monday, in the biggest school election turn-out ever seen here. A total of 1,390 went to the polls (including 13 absentee voters) to reject the pool more than two to one. The final count was 954 "no" and 417 "yes". School officials were more concerned over an upcoming millage election than the result of the pool vote. Said Superintendent Harold Hintz, "That (the defeat of the pool proposal) is the people's choice. But I hope that when the time comes for millage, they will make a different choice." It is expected that an extra operational millage will go on the ballot this summer. The school now has 7.54 extra voted mills approved by voters last year, for one year only. The School Advisory Council's pool committee is "quite satisfied" with the outcome of Monday's election, said Kit Clark, one of its members. "We set out to do two things inform the public as to and This year's figure is $7,030,050.
