e Saline VOLUME 20, NUMBER 5 - Thursday, October 10,1968 * * * 10c PER COPY -- §4 PER YEAR L aunc hed MANY OF THE VOLUNTEERS in the United Fund drive are veterans of many campaigns, having gone all-outs for the community effort for five, or eight, or 10 consecutive years. Attending the 1968 kick- off banquet Tuesday were some who have contributed uncountable hours: Dorothy Leidheiser, chairman this year, and Mrs. Aldean Jedele, Cecelia Ference, Ruth Hagen, Jean Taylor, Nelson Watling, Mrs. Glen Feldkamp, Bill Crim, Jr., and Lilah Watling. Program Open to All School Children This year's topical flouride program in Saline will begin Monday, October 21. at the Junior High School. Children should be registered by October 16; parents who did not receive registration cards may contact one of the school offices. A fee of $4, to cover cost of operating the clinic, ...must be submitted along with each registration card. The program is open to all school age children; and the Michigan Department qf Dental Health recommends that the following groups participate: all j£if.5th and 8th graders; any Mnder- "^jF gartner or 2nd grader who does ■ "£ not drink water from the city water system; and kindergart- ner or 2nd grader who has lived in Saline for less than three years. Mrs. Carol Wehlau, of Anh Arbor, a hygienist, will clean the children's teeth and apply the fluoride solution. For further information, .call Mrs. Paul Hale, Chairman, at 429-5094. CUB COMMITTEE ■SESSIONS SLATED ...The adult committee of Cub Scoi-Tl. ack 474 will meet at 8 p.m. Friday at the home of Vern CoUison. Leaders training sessions are" scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on the following three Wednesdays. Saline's vital community spirit had a lot to do with his decision to join the Michigan United Fund staff on a permanent basis, one of the speakers at the United Fund kick-off banquet said here Tuesday night. The U.F. staffer, a retired Army officer, told his SaUne audience that he had been considering a job with the state organization . . . and was very much undecided when he visited Saline weeks ago to observe a community U.F. group in action. "I'm an idealist, and I speak my mind, regardless of whether people want to hear what I have to say. This accounts for the fact that I retired one rank below my active duty status . . . arid I didn't want to join M.U.F. unless I could be sure that it was the kind of organization I could develop a real crusader's spirit for. I was very much in doubt when I paid that visit in Saline. "But the action of the group here helped a lot to convince me that this is my kind of organization. The dedicated effort I saw here on the grass roots level was certainly a determining factor," he concluded. He spoke at a dinner attended by approximately 100 volunteers for the 1968 Saline camr paign, which seeks a goal of $33,913. Chairman for the campaign is Mrs. Donald Leidheiser.

Eire Destroys Barns, Equipment Saline is enjoying a buUding . boom ... a bustle of construction that was slowed, but certainly not stopped, by strikes and weather earlier in the year. In home construction, the newest subdivision is Old Creek Farms, where six new houses are n°w occupied; 21 buUding permits have been issued; and starts have been made on m»re.. EventuaUy, there wUl be 57. Occupancy of new homes in Rolling Meadows is running several months behind original estimates . . . but all of Nichols Dr., from Tower Dr., is now occupied ... 35 new residences. Plans call for 102, plus 149 units of town houses; and starts have been made op some of these. Work on site development has also begun for the Mill VaUey Apartments, a 294-unit complex- to be constructed on the RoUand Goltz farm at the west edge of the city, where 23 acres of land have been zoned "R-3" for the apartments; and seven acres, fronting on Michigan Ave., have been zoned "commercial". The latter wiU be developed after the apartments are completed, according to Ed Hewitt, one of the developers. Others in the corporation with Hewitt are Goltz, Paul Robertson, Harvey Stark, Harold Morrison, BasU Cowhy, Sam Hazel- ette, Lou Boone, Bob Darr, Vic Douvan, and Bob Harrington, all residents of the Saline-Ann Arbor area. "Depending on weather", |he group plans to complete tiie" first phase of the developmeijt * . . 101 apartment units plus *-■*•■». two half-acre ponds and a picnic area. v. by. next June. The sec- ohdvp__ase "caUs for 100 units, swimming pool, and community buUding with recreation facUities. The remaining units wUl be constructed in the final phase, according to the plan. At the other end of town, the A. & P. Store and shopping center was slowed by construction strikes . . . first estimates were for completion in April . . . but equipment is now being moved in at the A. & P. Store. Company officials have not yet announced on opening date, however. Another new business to be located in the shopping center is the Plaza Beauty Salon, operated by Vivian iduwe, who hopes to open "in about a month". There was some speculation this week that an apparent building slump elsewhere in the county might bring_ more bidders on the new Saline High School. Bids on the school were to be taken in late August, according to the original timetable, made last year. It is now expected that final blueprints wil be avaUable about the first of December, with bids to be taken about a month later. The target opening-date of the school, faU of 1970, could stiU be met, however. City street construction, also slowed by weather, is now moving rapidly.' Curb and gutter have been instaUed on Clark St., and the long-awaited paving has begun there. The extension of Harris St. past the railroad tracks has been graded, and curb has been installed. Black- topping of the north end of the street could stiU be done this fall "if the weather holds", according to City Administrator Mike Strait. Pavement of Mills Rd. has been completed. Private improvements are also under way: Some Sidewalks have been put in on Mills Rd., arid others are,in process on S: Ann Arbor St., Willis Rd., and Spring St. AU are part of a city-wide sidewalk'program for which assessment districts wUl be set up for the remainder on ;Npyember 18. "One other city buUding project is now nearing corhpletion: thg re'mpdellirig of the old city haU to provide an Emergency Operations Center in the basement, new quarters for the po- lipe -department on^ the ground floor;, and courtroom "and coiut cU chambers oh the second floor. An open house will he held there when, the work is done, possibly this month. ANNUAL BANQUET The annual "banquet for "Fair Board meriibers1 and ''th e i r spouses will be held Monday, 'at the OES HaU.
