By Monday morning (after many local Michelangelos had worked far into the night), there were almost as many Saline statues as there were Saline people.

Kuebler was e- lected president of the Citizens Bank, at the annual shareholders' meeting Tuesday, and Harry Holmes was named vice president and chairman of the''board. The bank's two top posts had hot been filled since the death of the former president and chairman, Carl A. Curtiss, early last year. Kuebler has been with the Citizens Bank fpr 40 years, starting as bookkeeper and later serving as assistant cashier, cashier, and then vice president and cashier. He is a lifelong resident of the Saline area, and now makes his home on Waterworks Rd. Holmes came to Saline from LaGrange, Ind., in 1924 and has been with the. Citizens Bank since that time, as assistant cashier, cashier, and vice president and cashier. H e retired four years ago, but remained on the board of directors. The directors Tuesday also named Francis Lockwood to the post of cashier; he was formerly the assistant cashier. Donald Jeppesen is assistant cashier. No changes were made in the roster of directors of the bank. W.D. Crim Retires; Meadows Chosen At Savings Bank W. D. Crim < " *; .J&&& ' ■%>. *» • Vfv -*> City Council, in a special meeting Monday, approved a wage adjustment for all employees, five per cent on base pay retroactive to July of 1967. A five per cent raise was approved last summer, to begin on January 1, 1968. But, at the same time, the new city retirement plan went into effect, by which three per cent of each employee's wage goes into a retirement fund. The city's contribution, on a sliding scale, is slightly over five per cent. Employees discovered that the sum withheld for retirement, plus the new Michigan income tax, "ate up the increase" so that some now had less take-home pay than before .. . and one had "gained" only a few cents. The move to make the pay raise retroactive will bring employees lump sum payments (probably later this week) ranging from $58 for one hired in the fall, to about §200. All 25 permanent employees, full or part-time, are included: office staff, police, and DPW workers. Firemen, who are volunteers on their own pay schedule, are not affected. Council also approved time and a half for emergency overtime, which has been paid on a straight time basis in the past. The new rate will particularly aid DPW employees, who were out during the past weekend and on New Year's Day for snow removal, and during the entire Christmas weekend because of flooding problems. PoUce are also often called for e- mergency overtime. The time and a half .will not be paid for planned overtime, and City Administrator Mike Strait met with department heads today to draw .guidelines on what constitutes "emergency overtime". The city's cost of the retroactive payments, from July to January, amounts to 53,- 650. Council approved the retroactive pay raise "in order to he equitable and to try to keep pace with surrounding municipalities and governmental units", Mayor George Johnson said. "At the time the budget was set up in July, we were not absolutely sure of our money figure; we didn't know what would be the surplus from the previous year (Continued on Page 6) Special Events Planned to Aid Dimes March More, than 30 people-braved. a snowstorm 'Saturday night to attend the annual OES card party to benefit th* March of Dirties.

Meadows Schools Urgently Need Bus Driver The school system "urgently needs a bus driver by January 26", to replace one of its present drivers, the Rev. Ronald Diener. Now pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church, Mr. Diener has accepted a call to a church in Ohio. Applicants should be over 21 "years of age, with good driver records. The driver hired will be required to obtain a chauffeur's license. "Some driving experience helps," Hill added. Applicants may call him at 429-4981. • Rev. Diener Accepts Call In Ohio The Rev. Ronald Diener, pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church at Bridgewater, has accepted a call to Emmanuel Lutheran Church in South Columbus, O. He will preach his last sermon here on Sunday, January 28. naove on Monday, and be installed at 'Emmanuel Lutheran on February 4. Mr. Diener began his service to the Bridgewater church in June, 1964. It was his first pastorate; he came directly from the Evangelical Lutheran Theological Seminary in Columbus, O. He and his wife, Marilyn, have two children, Mark 2, and Ann, 10 months, both born here. He expects to find the Ohio pastorate "a change and a challenge". Emmanuel Lutheran Church has 1.600 baptized members; St. John's has 370. The congregation i n South Columbus will be made up of city residents; Bridge- water is completely rural. But. the average attendance at St. John's last year was 180 . . .which is remarkable since the post office lists the population of Bridgewater at 99. The pastor's work here was imaginative: he portrayed each of the Disciples, in costume, during Lent; he and his congregation spent last summer making color slides at local farms for a Nativity story to be shown at Christmas time; and during the area Centennial, a service was conducted at St. John's just as services were held 100 years ago, exact in every detail. He has "liked Bridgewater very much and made a lot of friends here," he said. 1988 LICENSE PLATES TO BE SOLD HERE 1968 vehicle Ucense plates wiU be so_d at Steeb Dodge Sales, by a representative of the Ann Arbor branch office of the Secretary of State, from 2 to"5 p.m. Saturday, January 27.
