rf w VOLUME 20, NUMBER 8-THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1968 * * * 10c PER COPY — $4 PER YEAR Art: Witch is Which Construction \ IN AN UNUSUAL COMMUNITY PROJECT, the big show windows at Comunity Ford Sales were enlivened by Halloween scenes, at owner Dave Potter's invitation, the creations of an Art Club of Taylor Jacobsen's students. The club, with 15 members, is starting a lively season; its main goal is to visit art galleries in Ann Arbor, Detroit, and possibly Toledo. Its officers are a rotat ing committee, now headed by Jody Parsons, with Teresa Bonich and Bonnie Stemen. The club's project was dampened, unfortunafely^by rain on Monday, the day after all <their dedicated work. The paintings' were vf all put on with water colors. But during the day of painting, the artists obviously had a grand time. -r-Photo by Otto Gunnesch Eto - - tfe. m F* CUBS ANNOUNCE UNIFORM EXCHANGE Cub Pack 416, which serves boys living north of Michigan Ave., is holding a uniform exchange. Anyone wishing to buy or sell * any part "bf a ""Cub Uniform may contact Mrs. Patsy Mayer, 429-4792. Construction is expected to start this week on a naw, one- room addition on the front "of Saline Community Hospital, for office space. The additional space will partly relieve the urgent need for room which has plagued the hospital for some years. Plans were drawn by Tanner-Kowal- ewski, and the addition will be constructed by Bridgewater Lumber Co., which was also the contractor for the entire hospital when it was built in 1959. Another recent move to provide more space was the closing of the obstetrical wing, which could no longer meet increasing state requirements for facilities, such as a delivery room separated from the surgical suite. The OB beds are now in use for Two Deer, Car, School Bus Tangle Two deer, a ciar, and a school bus tangled on Saline-Milan Rd., early Monday, and only one deer came out the loser. The two animals ran into the path of a car driven by Emil Milkey, of Milan; and the impact knocked them into an oncoming school bus driven by ' Mary Fern Cogar, of 217 S. Ann Arbor St. Neither the bus nor the car were damaged. One of the deer picked itself up and ran away. The other, a small "button buck", was killed. RETURN FROM TOUR Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kraus, of 108 W. Henry St., recently returned from a two-weeks,_co_lpr_ "tour in the Green Mountains and White Mountains and throughout the New England states. medical-surgical patients; and the nursery has become a pediatrics ward. The hospital this week received a renewed three-year ac- cies-'tation from the Joint. Commission of Accreditation on Ec~pi.als, for "providing high quality medical and hospital care in all servicer.". Three years accreditation-is tha maximum eyer granted by tha corr_. mission. The hospital also still has Bine Cross approval, which it has had since it opened. Despite the growing need for medical-surgical beds, the hospital cannot construct more rooms for beds without the approval of the Greater Detroit Hospital Council, which has been withheld on the grounds that patient care should be consolidated in the larger hospitals in the area and that smaller hospitals are not needed. To construct for additional beds without GDHC approval would jeopardize Blue Cross approval. An alternative route, discussed at the annual board of directors' meeting and still a possibility, is the expansion of outpatient facilities. Use of X-ray, laboratory, and emergency departments here has soared, in recent years. The board proposed an extensive wing on the north side of the hospital, to enlarge X-ray, lab, emergency room and waiting rooms, to relieve the cramping in the present quarters and ease the supply space problem. Another proposal was enlargement of kitchen and dining room facilities, which would also free more space for equipment and other uses. " No community subscription drive is contemplated at this time, a board member said. A BIG BOOST to the Saline area United Fund came from the Ford Motor Co. General ]?arts Division this week, as L. R. Ross, Saline plant manager, presented a check for $4,000 to Mrs. Donald Leidheiser, chairman of the campaign. City C '*XV.»V4^ *"'Hte \ f" ' ;M£VA??«f ^VJJ\ Discussions of city issues were provided this week by three of the four candidates for the three city council seats to be filled in the. November 5 election. Quoted below are Waldo (Jim) Gross, lidates Cite: Views Kenneth Rogers, and now-Mayor George Johnson. The fourth candidate is Incumbent Councilman Glenn Clark. (For Mayor Candidates' discussion, see page two.) Advisory Council To Elect New Members, Officers The annual meeting of the Schools Advisory Council will be held on Wednesday, November 6, at the High School Library, to elect officers as well as new members. There. are now three membership vacancies to be filled from the City of Saline, plus one from Pittsfield Township.

A SPECIAL PORTRAIT AND TRIBUTE was created by Taylor Jacobsen, the old master himself, for Wanda Burkhart, who works at Community Ford and has known Taylor since . . . well, for quite a while. The legend reads "Wanda the Which". Above, Wanda stands alongside her portrait and defies anyone to see a resemblance. _**#* #. SHS Ballot Results May Surprise Saline High School students, in a mock election this week, favored Richard Nixon- over Hubert Humphrey by almost two .to one. Since Saline area is traditionally Republican by at least that margin, those results astonished nobody. * * :ji But the kids also ran George Wallace a very close third. On the Presidential ballot, with 319 students voting, Nixon won with 171, to Humphrey's 85, and Wallace's 63. The proportions won't send the SHS election into the House of Representatives '. . . but it left some observers wondering (1) whether the youngsters had made up their own minds or been heavily influenced by parents, and (2) where all the silent Wallace fans were_ $ * s Another cause for contemplation came in the vote for Sheriff. The students favored Demo- at Douglas J. Harvey by 177 er Republican George A. /Petersen's 130. For Congress, Incumbent Marvin Esch defeated Weston Vivian by 233 to 68. For State Representative, Republican Thomas Sharpe won over Joseph W. Kolbe by 235 to 70. • Other races went like this (Republican winners listed first): For prosecuting attorney: William Delhey, 217 John Toomey, 79 For county clerk: Robert M. Harrison, 207 Lois Jean Owens, 67 For county treasurer: Sylvester A. Leonard, 188 Arthur H. Simsar, 72 For register of deeds: Patricia N. Hardy, 204 Ethel M. Howard, 80 For county drain commissioner: John H. Flook, 199 Richard E. Nash, 92 For surveyor: Herbert S. Hicks, 183 Ulrich W. Stoll, 106 For county supervisor, District 2: NeU A. Mast, 202 . Harold H. Hunawill, 85 A little pencil, work with the rest of the figures indicates that all of the Wallace votes came off the Republican side of the ballot. Gross "I have been a resident of Saline area since 1913, graduating, from Saline High in 1931. I was in the retail store management field for 28 years, then entered the Real Estate business, for the past five years as a broker. "There will be a brochure de-' livered by the city informing you of the four proposals that will be on the ballot. I am determined that the taxpayers know what the costs to them are if they are all adopted. I will comment on the proposals. Proposal No. 1, a water softening plant, bonding of $835,000.00 dollars with a millage tag of 2.19 mills, payable for 20 years. Proposal No. 2, expansion of our sewer disposal operation. Bonding of $640,000.00 dollars with a millage of 1.15 mills. Payable for 20 years. Proposal No. 3, reconstructing and improving Saline Dam. Bonding for $175,000.00 dollars with a millage of .67 mills, payable for 12 years. Proposal No. 4, recreational and swimming area. Bonding of $160,000.00 dollars with a millage of .61 mills, payable for 12 years. Total millage asked for amounts to 4.62 to pay for the four proposals. "Comments on proposals: No. 1—refer to brochure for full explanation. Soft water is t_ (Continued on page 3). donnson "The present Saline City government is a healthy and-vigorous organization. It is and has been, progressive and imaginative in its approach to solving problems, but prudent and thrifty in its financing methods. "The council has attracted the very best type of industry to the community. The city assets and the high industrial tax base are the envy of many other communities. The tax base ratio of 78 per cent industrial and commercial, to 22 per cent residential, is one of the best in the state. "During my time in office, services have been improved and tax millage has been reduced. In fact, the tax millage has twice been reduced during my term as mayor. To. state it simply, we have lived within our means and have -still made vast improvements. "Yet there are still improvements that can be made in the future. Our combined rubbish and garbage pickups must continually be adopted. To augment -the present pickup we should consider the purchases of equipment to pick up leaves during the fall season. "By providing complete rubbish, garbage and leaf collection, we could discontinue burn- (Gontinued on page 3) Sogers "In response to the question, Why I agreed to have my name placed on the ballot for City Councilman?, I offer the following: "First, I am a life-long resident of Saline and believe it- to be the finest community in this State. "With this belief, I am probably a bit jealous of our position as a small, well-run city, but cannot overlook the fact that we are destined for continuous growth. * * - "We face immediate decisions on necessary changes. We must agree that we keep pace with adequate city services, water supply, schools, sewage treatment and proper recreation facilities. * * * "The decisions that face" your City Council are the order of necessity and im'portance of these changes, and then planning to keep the financing within reasonable tax structure for all taxpayers. "If I am elected, my only promise is ~ to work to the limit of my ability - expecting the support and cooperation of the people, to perpetuate this city as a leading community in our great State of Michigan.

FORD GIFT BOOSTS TOTAL A sizeable contribution from the Ford Motor Co. this week lifted the Saline area "United Fund campaign to approximately 30 per cent of its $33,913 goal.
