Before they return to play for the Saline youngsters in May, more than 300,000 other children will have viewed "The Golden Fish." ^ ^ ^ This year's production, as usual, written, built and rehearsed in the Old Opera House studios in downtown Saline, is based on an original script by Meredith Bixby. The unique story incorporates many legends collected by Post Wheeler in the 1900's when he was American ambassador to the Czar in Russia. The puppets include a boy hero, a big brown bear, the famed witch, "Baba Yaga" and her "House on Chicken Legs". Above, .John Miner of Walled Lake, and Raymond Masters of Plymouth arrange a scene in rehearsal . . . and, below, a scene in the "Palace of the Czar" with the Czar, Prince and Princess on the throne. Demand for Bixby Jlarionettes nationally has grown to such an extent that Meredith and Thyra have decided to experiment with filming their shows, to allow a much wider distribution. So the Old Opera House may soon be dubbed "Hollywood East". Seven complete productions are ready for the camera: "Jack and the Beanstalk", "The Enchanted Lamp", "The Little Humpbacked Horse", "Pinocchio", "The Wizard of Oz", and this year's story, "The Golden Fish". Hornets De Conference Something went wrong Friday night. . . but not for Saline. Facing the South Lyon Lions, last year's league winners and this year's favorites, and a bigger team, besides . . . the spunky Hornet varsity up-ended all predictions by winning 27-6. They gained the lead in the Southeastern Conference at the same time. Saline seldom let the Lions get a paw off the ground. South Lyon's spirited passer, Dave Brandon, was responsible for his team's only score . . . but for the rest of the game he was so hard-pressed that the Lions managed only a few completions, and the Hornets benefitted from several interceptions. Mike Farrell, Mike Romelhardt, and Bobby Girbaeh, plus the whole Saline line, combined to keep the Lions' air game off its 'stride and out of phase throughout the evening. Said Saline Coach Mike Rotunno: "The Hornets were ready to play baU . . . and they played their best game, so far. Door-to-Door Mail Delivery Extended The Saline Post Office has received authorization to extend door-to-door delivery service to the new subdivision, Old Creek Farms, Postmaster Clark Gordon announced today. _ The subdivision, which will ^|\ ultimately include 57 houses, '^^y now has about eight occupied homes; but only three of the houses have sidewalks. The latter will receive door-to-door service immediately, and. the others will receive deliveries as: soon as sidewalks are installed, Gordon said. Old Creek farms, in the southeast section of the city, is an extension of Canterbury Dr., plus _i new street, Old Creek Dr. Women's Clijbs To Celebrate Statistics were pathetic and symbolic: The Hornets' total yardage was 266, as compared to South Lyon's 66. Last year the Lions massacred the Hornets, 26-0. The Hornets' offense started ticking early in the game, when Dan Laskey scored from .11 yards out. Don Morton who always kicks for Saline, converted the point. Just before the first quarter ended, Karl Roehm . . . new comer to football this year though he's, a senior . . . scored on a spectacular 32-yard run after Mike Farrell threw a key block and Gary Strieter broke Karl loose for a clear shot at the goal. The third score for the Hornets came in the second quarter on a screen -pass from Don Reese to Keith Smith, a play that covered 72 yards and included two fine blocks, one by Morton, one by Scott Klapper. Reese did a beautiful job of faking to set Up the play. Laskey ran the last touchdown from 10 yards, in the last quarter of the game. Farrell played an outstanding defensive game, not only as the leading tackier, but in blocking a kick that set up the Hornets' first score. Right behind him for tackles and assists were Girbaeh and Romelhardt. The Saline players, already high - keyed for this crucial game, were whipped just- a little higher by the opening play •from scrimmage. The Lions, evidently trying to rattle quarterback Reese, broke through and dropped him while he was still calling signals. But the strategy backfired. By the time the Hornets had cooled down the Lions were completely subdued and trailing by three TDs.. Coming up this Friday, the Homecoming game, is a bout with Monroe Catholic Central. It is not a league contest.. The Washtenaw County Federated Womens' Clubs will host Southeastern Michigan Clubwomen on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 8, and 9, at the Washtenaw Country Club in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Southeastern District of the Michigan State Federation.

FLUORIDE APPLICATION OFFERED Topical appUcation of fluoride will again be offered to Saline Area Children, starting on October 21. Children who have received the benefit of fluoridated water while their teeth were developing will not need the treatments, a "spokesman said. The fluoride program, which is supervised by the Michigan Department of Public Health, will be made available to 2nd, 5th, and 8th graders and to spfr cial cases referred by dentists. The program, consists of four visits to the flouride clinic. The child's teeth are cleaned on the first visit and -a flouride solution is applied directly to the surface of the teeth. The fluoride application only is then repeated during the three succeeding visits. The technique has 'been shown to reduce tooth decay by about 40 percent A fee of $4 is charged to cover the cost of operating the clinic. Mrs. Paul Hale is chairman. BF YOU THOUGHT Library Board members did nothing but hold meetings, look again! That's Sirs. Harry Holmes, vice president and the board's longest-term member, on the ladder (in the close-up) and Mrs. Charles Kern, president, beside her. In the other photo, the action is reversed but the east is the same, blue jeans and all. These gals, along with Mrs. Regis Wolfinger, another board member, have spent many tedious hours stripping old varnish from the woodwork in the Schleh building, so it can be redecorated to become the new Saline Library. Just about all of the remodelling has been and will be done by volunteers, according to Dick Cole, who directs the project . . . and is also a volunteer. Lots more help is needed, he said . . . progress fin the reconstruction is obvious, but there's still a lot to do. Target date for moving the library is "as quick as possible, but we can't foresee what the delays will be." Meanwhile, anybody willing to turn a. hand is asked to call Dick at City Hall, 429-4907, or at home, 429-9022. AFTER LOTS OF HARD WORK, backed by lots of determination, the interior of the Schleh building will look like this, when it's the home of the Saline Library. Purchase of the building would not have been possible without the Saline Area United Fund, which has under taken to supply the entire purchase price. This year's United Fund budget includes $9,000, one-third of the total. Last year's UF campaign supplied the fame amount. N.
