Musical Youth International, a People-to-People combined choral and orchestral group of high school students, will begin rehearsals here Saturday for its 1969 summer tour to Japan. The young musicians, directed by Lester McCoy of Saline, will start rehearsal at 2 p.m. at Saline High School. This year, MYI includes 102 young people, from 49 high schools in Michigan and Ohio. enearsais ner, who will double in chorus and band (French horn). Both are high school seniors. MYI, now in its 5th year, will spend six days in Seattle, Wash., en route to Japan, where they are slated for concerts between July 1 and July 20. On the way back, they will appear again in Seattle and then cross the country in buses, stopping for performances in Spokane, Wash.; Boise, Idaho; Yellowstone National Park; the Black Hills and Sioux Falls in South Dakota; Wisconsin; and Michigan cities before their final concert on August 3 in Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor. Their summer concert tours in previous years have been in Mexico and Europe. Write-in Votes Elect Trustees Jim Knight •. aJT-m. cj.ii. ___3& CHRISTNER DICKS P ,)Two of them are from Saline: 'Dennis Dicks, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leland Dicks, who is in the chorus for the third year and is the only member ever to make three tours with the group; and John -Christner, son of Mr: and Mrs. Ernest Christ- Advisory Council The Schools Advisory Council, at last Wednesday's meeting, i lected officers and filled two of four vacancies. James Knight, Jr., was named chairman; and Dr. Wilbur Vander Yacht will serve as vice chairman. Mrs. Richard Wanty is secretary. Two city of Saline vacancies were filled by Mrs. John Bek- ett and Miss Carol Burmeister. A third appointment for Saline has not yet been confirmed; and a Pittsfield Township vacancy also remains unfilled. The council learned that inter- school lines have now been installed between the high school, ancl Jensen School and the Junior High. The line to Houghton School has been installed, but is not yet in use. Until further notice, when additional trunk lines have been installed, the public is requested to continue to call the number of the school to which they wish to be connected . . . the inter- school lines will be used only for inter-school business. Speaker at the Advisory Council meeting was Earl Shaffer, representing the Intermediate School District, on the proposed Vocational Education Center. Voters will be asked to approve a one-mill tax levy for construction of such a center and operation of its programs, in a special election in December. Margaret O'Connor, of 4300 Saline-Ann Arbor Rd., will become the first woman ever to serve on Lodi Township Board, when her election to a two-year trustee term is certified this Week. Since all Mrs. O'Connor's votes were write-ins, there was some confusion in 'Lodi as to the result of the election; until County Clerk Luella Smith, after calling state election officials concerning details of the ballots, said that Mrs. O' Connor's victory would be certified. The wife of Dr. Gerald, O'Connor "and mother of eight children, Mrs. O'Connor received 10 votes, the minimum nunr- ber required to qualify in a general election. There were • no candidates for the post on the ballot; other write-ins went to George Schneirle, of 2050 S. Wagner Rd.; and Alan Coe, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Coe of 3308 E. Clover Dr. Alan is in the service. Gall Wiedman Albert Gall, vice president of the Fair Board for about 10 years, was elected president at the annual meeting Monday night. Robert Starling, Jr., will serve as vice president. Gall replaces Don Wiedman, who retired from the post after serving on the board since it was first formed, as president for many years as well as in other offices. He will continue as a member of the board. Other officers were re-elected: Robert Tefft is corresponding secretary; Ray Girbaeh is business secretary; Webb Harwood is treasurer. Since state aid payments have not yet been received, the books show a net loss for the 1968 Fair, Harwood reported. The GALL CUB PACKS TO ATTEND U-M FOOTBALL GAME Cub Scout Pack 464 will meet in front of Jensen School at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, and Cub Pack 416 will meet at Houghton School at 11 a.m,. both to attend the Wisconsin-Michigan game at the U-M Stadium. Cubs are to be in full uniform, or in no uniform at all; partial uniform will be improper. The pack meeting of Pack 416 will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 20, at Houghton School. WIEDMAN state payment, which will amount to about $1800, will "erase the red ink", he said. Expenditures for the Fair were $15,183.49; receipts, without state aid, were $13,450.47, for a temporary loss of $1,733.02. The Fair board paid $4811 in premiums this year, about $600 more than in 1967, he noted. Premiums for some exhibits were raised slightly; there were also many more exhibits than usual. On the income side, Happy- land rides brought in $1,851, at least $500 more than last year. Helicopter rides, a new feature this year, returned $81.50. The lunchroom, operated by the OES, took in more than $2,000 for the organization plus $407 for tlie Fair. The Fair required many more expenditures this year, some for expanded facilities and some for ncreased labor costs, Harwood .aid. But he pointed out that mich of the money paid for "labor" goes to local civic "roups such as the Kiwanis Club (for taking tickets), FFA, Boy Scouts, and Junior Deputies. In a parting "presidential message", Wiedman noted that 'This Fair is intended as an educational experience for0 our routh. Let's not have disagreements among adults who are .upposed to be guiding our youth. It takes all departments to make a good Fair; there should not be dissension between-them." He recommended relocation of the various livestock departments for greater convenience and facility. He also advised: "Be sure that any person who is supposed to be a supervisor or committeeman for any youth club does not figure his time on the pay -cale. After all, this is what this Fair was based" on, donated time and effort to the young.. If everybody thinks they are to get paid for everything they do at the Fair, you might as well call it quits. "This Fair is set up differently than others. All civic organizations may gain financially from it, but the Fair itself is (Continued on page 3) The Saline Area United Fund campaign has reached a spectacular high of 107 per cent. (Dr. and Mrs. Don Leidheiser left Tuesday night for a deer- hunting trip. Don took a gun and hopes to bring back a deer. Dot took an adding machine; she expects to return next week with complete figures on the United Fund campaign, of which she was chairman.) The generous total so far is $36,300 . . . well over the $33,913 goal . . . and contributions are still coming in. * (The Rev. Merle Meeden lugged a ladder down the main street on Saturday. He set it up, climbed, and tacked a red paper "107 per cent" on top of the United Fund thermometer. Then the pastor, who is president of the United Fund board, returned the borrowed ladder to its owners.) Anyone who was mi? .ed in the canvassing for th." drive may mail a contribution to Mrs. Leidheiser, at 418 N. Ann Arbor St.; and she will return a receipt by mail. The campaign was not only one of the most successful in the area's history, it was also the most swiftly concluded. Said Mrs. Leidheiser: "We had remarkable cooperation. The captains were marvelous about reporting." She added, in a writ-v ten statement: "Once again the Saline Area United Fund has surpassed its goal. Credit for this achievement is due to the cooperation of everyone involved. The contributors are to especially be commended .because, without their generosity, success would not have been possible. The industries, businesses, organizations, schools, trades and individual contributions without exception, have monitarily exceeded previous years. The United Fund board wishes to thank all Of you for making us look so efficient.

There was reason for more jubilation then their expressions indicate, since the drive had soared from 30 per cent to 107 per cent in two weeks, to wind up earlier than any local United Fund drive had ever done before.
