The gym was. fairly crammed with young twirlers (ages 5 through 13) and their parents. The in structors, who will have their hands full, are Becky Hehr, Peggy West, Sarah Christner, and Barb Braun, who intend to organize a Baton Marching Corps to take part in parades and other community activities. DOLLS OF TWO SIZES could be admired at the Ford plant this week, in the annual doll-judging contest w'hich provides the lovely toys for Christmas baskets for needy children, through the Goodfellows. ^ Saline gals among the contestants (left to. right above) were Mary Karr Wanda Macomber, Carol Compton, Arline Thoss, June Harvey, Nancy Ferguson, and (not in the 'picture') Margaret Grit- man. Nancy's doll was judged one of the two best dressed. Other winners were Mary Bies, one of the best dressed dolls; Susan Horton, most original; ahd Ruth Fritzler, most eye appeal. Each of the winners receives a $12 award. Salinians had better start thinking in terms of-a "Community of Washtenaw", BiU Bott, president of the Ana Arber Chamber of Commerce, told Saline Rotarians last week. Otherwise, he said, they.ll ultimately find themselves pairt of a "Community of Southeastern Michigan." ■ Saline's rapid growth is already apparent, he said; but- there is a whole new pattern MYI Concert. Set to Benefit Scholarships All the "alumni" of Musical Youth International . . . 300 to 400 young musicians . ... will gather here on Sunday, December 22, to give a concert to benefit the MYI scholarship endowment fund The endowment fund, with a goal of $100,000, will be used to provide scholarships for needy and talented young people to study music, according to Lester McCoy, founder of MYI, It , is already "about one-third of the way along toward its goal" with contributions from businesses, industries, and interested individuals, he said. Contributions are tax-deductible, since MYI is a non-profit organization. : .-^■The-MYI. -graduates will'-glF. ther at Saline High School on Sunday afternoon, to rehearse numbers from their former repertories, and the concert.will be given at 7:30 p.m. that evening, in the gym. Choral numbers will be dir- ' ected by McCoy, who organ?) ized MYI in 1985. Band numbers will be directed by the conductors who have accompanied the group en its summer tours: Charles L. Kirsch, music supervisor of Battle Creek Schools; Jack Bittle, of Sturgis; Edward Downing, of Huron High School in Ann Arbor; Nathan Judson of Grosse Point North High School (his wife is the former Christmas Schnierle); and Russell Reed of Grosse Pointe Scuth High School, who is the band director for the 1989 -summer tour. Tickets for the concert are $1 for adults and children over 12. of growth lying ahead ... including the 780-acre Penn-Cen- tral industrial complex planned in Pittsfield Township between Saline and Ann Arbor. "It's coming," Bott said, "and it wi]] mean big industry-and lots of it, and lots of employees . . . thousands of them . . . whether you want it or not." The changing character of the community brings many attendant problems, he pointed out. Among them: Operational costs of schools will continue to grow. An effi- c i e n t transportation system must be developed to move the people who will be living and working in the area ... he suggested, as one possibility, "Dial-A-Bus", a computerized system of bus flow in response to demand. Municipal services will need" reorganization, he added. There are now 27 governmental units in Washtenaw County, with hundreds of agencies, incl u d i n g numerous planning groups . . ...and "practically all of them are going down their own road, without regard for any of the others. We need to bring them together and coordinate their work. Otherwise, we'll continue to have fragmented governmental units with fragmented goals." There will be increasing "people problems", Bott said. "We've got them. We've got to. work to encourage the brotherhood of :-manH !^4_nong- 'tlie~ Sky-foi-ket- ing costs of living, he named those of housing and hospitalization.
