CLARE SENTINEL Established 1878 Height Is C n Cage Opener Ten Cents Copy By Larry Mogg Clare cage Coach Jim Raymond who brought basketball back last season from the doldrums of 52 successive defeats when his quintet compiled a 10-9 record, will find himself with seven returning lettermen and a handful of good JVs when he opens the season at Coleman Tuesday. It was against Coleman a year ago that the Green and White broke their painful losing streak and then went on to one of the best cage seasons here in many years. Raymond, even with air of his returning talent, still has a couple of problems: Graduation took the Pioneers' four top scorers. And there is the omnipresent lack of height on the squad. Trying to make a solution for these problems, Raymond will use mmmmmmmmummmMmmmmBt^mmmmtmmmmmmmmmmmmmtaa Any basketball fans want a pre-season look at their 1961- 62 Pioneers — for FREE? They will meet Reed City tonight in a hardcourt tussle for practice on the Clare gym floor, and there's no charge to watch. The game will begin at 7:00 p.m. t an improved running break on offense, and plans a "glue-sticking" defense system. Only frontliner returning from last season is senior guard Dan Green who swished the nets for a 6.2 average last year. Jim Perrine is another who saw enough action to compile a 5.7 average. Three boys up from the JV squad should give Raymond some scoring help. They are Skip Kegg, Skip Breen, and Ralph Bucholz all averaging better than 10 points in the past season for the Little Pioneers. Expected starters for the season opener could give Clare an all- senior lineup with Green and Tom Kozicki at guards, the rugged Ruark and Breen, Buchholz and Kegg in reserve, Raymond will have strength on the bench, too. Other members on the squad ar|e Jack Lansing, Jim Allen, Bob Jeffreys, and Larry Mogg. s Co-ordinated efforts of eight or more organizations will make sure that no needy family in the Clare school district goes without a Christmas. Gifts, food and cash are already being collected and a systematic plan for distributing baskets is going to eliminate duplication of benefits, and a better scattering of the holiday cheer. Joining efforts are two chapters of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, the Business and Professional Women, Civitans, Holley Carburetor Company, Junior Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis, Rotary, and Women's Auxiliary of the Clare VFW. Heading a committee of representatives from most of these organizations is Tony Wendal who is "sold" on the plan for one master list for distributing Christmas baskets. He believes that there will be greater certainty that no one will be missed and that no group acting independently will duplicate the Christmas basket gift where another group has already visited the needy family. The aid and co-operation of other organizations or groups is sought in the project. Any person who can donate Perrine and'jdm ^HumohreTa't inow' or clean used clothing, or forward X^*£T*£ Eric | ££ ±™^?J*™™2&i Hammerberg at the post.

Sentinel photo Friday and Saturday, December 1st. and 2nd., The Citizens State Bank of Clare will begin the "grand opening" celebration of its new office — Michigan's newest and one of its most beautiful banks. The site of the new bank was purchased two years ago by the officers and directors . . . men with a dream and a look to the future. The property then occupied by the Lister and old Lewis homes presented to these men of progressive thinking an excellent setting for a larger, more efficient and completely modern bank. Stuart Bicknell, President, said, "Our dream ambition for the most modern v*ar>k in the state has now been realized and we sincerely hope all of our friends and neighbors in the area will come in to see us to say 'hello' and see the new office. "The bank was designed and built entirely for our customers, so they may carry on all their banking business in a most cordial and convenient atmosphere. "We believe this completely modern bank is indicative of our faith in the future of Clare and We intend to continue to grow with the area." The contemporary design of the bank by Erwin L. Broecker, A.I.A., architect, (Battle Creek and Detroit) blends Indiana limestone, face brick, aluminum and glass perfectly with the tree- studded area. Miles of c6pper tubing embedded in the concrete around the bank will insure clear, dry walks even in the worst winter weather. For further convenience a full parking lot completely black- topped, with an entrance off McEwan and exit on Seventh street will allow parking for 35 cars and easy access to two drive-up banking windows on the west side of the building. Both entrances to the building, the main one from McEwan and north entrance from the parking lot are covered by huge canti- levered aluminum marquees and there is also a lighted 24-hour &&& Clare firemen fought an extremely smokey" and damaging fire Saturday night in a dwelling occupied by Mrs. Mary Lou Doherty Robinson at 208 W. State. The blaze, believed caused by hot wiring in the aitic was discovered only after the house lights went out. She and her family of eight children (six in ihe house at the Jiitte) were driven hastily outdoors and only major .articles of furniture were saved. The house, belonging to Mrs. Helen Erter is nearly a total loss but will be rebuilt. Fire fighters Bob Cimmerer and Cliff Lettick here pour water through an opening in a front dormer with dense smoke and heat surrounding ihem. Sentinel photo depository near the north entrance. As you enter the bank, you are immediately impressed with a feeling of spaciousness combined with a warm, friendly atmosphere of comfort and conven ience. To the left is a customers' lounge area designed for a moment's rest in a busy day; along the south wall is the officers' area with rich rustcolored carpeting and private offices of exquisite walnut paneling. The southwest corner of the building contains the main vault for cash and safe deposit. The vault, a Diebold, is constructed of 18-inch reinforced concrete walls and its door weighs eight tons; the cash and safe deposit areas eeicen* are completely separated by a full mirrored wall. The entire vault is equipped with a fresh air circulating system. Also in the northwest corner of the bank is an elevator to the basement which will allow the easy transporting of heavy records and equipment.

He has been a patient at St. Mary's hospital in Saginaw since November 5, and was operated on November 9 for removal of a kidney. Mrs. Nivison, who has remained at his side during much of the period since he entered the hospital wrote to The Sentinel saying the mayor has received many caids, other messages and flowers and is enjoying them. "We would like to have everyone know how much their thoughtfullness has helped and how much appreciated it all is", she said. There was also a little cheer in the message that said Jerry is improving somewhat and, "on the mend". ;mmm& Herman Lower, 67, died suddenly at his residence in Sheridan townshop last Saturday after an unexpected heart attack. He was a native of Clare county and had spent the last 20 years of his life in Sheridan on. his farm. His last rites were held Monday, November 27 at Stephenson's Funeral Home with Rev. D< R. Salisbury officiating and burial in Midland. y Five sons are Herman in Gladwin, Kenneth in Sanford, Dale in Midland, Robert of Farwell, and Roger of Clare; three daughters are Mrs. George Pumpford of Vestaberg, Mrs. James Solosky of Jamestown, N. Y., and Miss Marlene in Hemlock. Other survivors include a brother and sister, 21 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Replace Stamps The store was closed and marking pencils were busy all day Monday at the Clare Giant Super Market as store personnel was busily engaged in marking down over 6,000 items. Tuesday the store reopened as the Clare area's first discount food store. The announcement that Clare's Giant Super Market had changed it's mode of business to a discount operation was made by L. A. Walton, President of Giant Super Markets. In explaining the reason behind the change to a discount operation, Walton deplored the so-called "loss leader" type of grocery advertising coupled with today's cost of issuing trading stamps. Beginning Monday, December 4th, Giant will no longer issue trading stamps. Giant was the first major supermarket in this area to issue trading stamps. Over 6,000 food items have been reduced on an everyday basis to make Giant Super Market a truly discount operation, Walton stated. The same prices will be in effect Monday through Saturday every week of the year. The store will concentrate on bringing the total purchase cost down for the customer, Walton added. The first discount food advertising by Giant Super Market appears in today's issue of the Clare Sentinel Painting Reproduced 1 A painting by Grace McArthur is reproduced in color in the magazine Ford Times for December.

Ban Parking City Police remind all residents of Clare that auto parking on the streets in prohibited between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. This is to allow snow plows to clear lanes for scraping the streets. erry Christmas1 ith Santa ehind Prancing Ponies The naming of a girl to be "Miss Merry Christmas" and ride with Santa Claus in a Clare parade on December 9 is a new wrinkle in the Clare Fire Department's holiday party for youngsters for 1961. The day's program will be further headlined by the appearance here of the John F. Ivory prize pony team to draw Santa's carriage, and furnished rides for kids. The pony team with carriage and drivers made a tremendous hit in the firemen's party last Christmas and will probably draw a larger crowd at their second appearance. The big attraction in the annual celebration will again be the treats of candy that firemen will hand out to hundreds ox children at the fire station in the city park across Fifth street from the city hall. Ivory, a Detroit moving and storage firm owner has told the firemen that he will send the Rev. Hamb Called By Nazarenes Rev. Eugene Hamblin of Owosso, will begin his pastoral duties at the Clare Church of the Nazarene this Sunday, December 3rd. Rev. Hamblin received a unanimous call to the pulpit of the church two weeks ago, to replace Rev. Jerry Ulrich who accepted a call to the Holt Church of the Nazarene. Rev. Hamblin received his training at Olivet Nazarene College in Kankakee, Illinois and Owosso Bible College. He has been working the Owos- so-Flint area for the past few. years and is highly recommended as a pastor by the Michigan District. Rev. and Mrs. Hamblin and their four sons will be moving into the Nazarene parsonage on Mineral street December 16th. C-D Council Reviews Communications The Clare County Civil Defense Council met Monday evening in the City Hall with a round table discussion by several of' the officers. Mrs. Ina Hammond, county chairman, led the discussion, assisted by Clarence Gum, city chairman, and Sheriff and Mrs. James Darling, and Dale Miller. The Twelve Points of Communications was the .main item and then the group reviewed the progress of the materials obtained for the Survival Plan and Resource Book. All supervisors of townships are requested to complete their reports and get them to the chairman as soon as possible. The December meeting was cancelled due to falling on Christmas. The January meeting will be a workshop to compile the information in the Resource Book, and all members of the Council are urged to be present. No All Here The Sentinel, surprised by more news copy and advertising space orders than had been anticipated, has had to go to press leaving some news and personal mention copy unprinted.

Greyhound, Auto Collide; None Injured Slippery driving conditions during the season's first snowfall Wednesday of last week were indirectly responsible for an accident that ditched a Greyhound bus two miles south of Clare on old US-27. Two passengers and' the bus driver were shaken ^a little but not injured. Veteran Greyhound driver Wilson Becker of Clare was at the wheel. The bus was struck and ditched when Mrs. Mary Jeffery, 44, of Deer Lake Road, Clare met it and moved a little too far to the outside to give passing room. The right front wheel of her 1961 Buick dropped off the edge of the concrete pavement and then in righting the car, Mrs. Jeffery swung across the center line and struck the left front corner of the bus. The Jeffery car, with its left side partly torn off, careened off the highway and through a fence into a field but the driver was not seriously injured. The bus also left the road as Becker turned to avoid a head-on collision and it shot into a ditch, narrowly missing several' large trees and a utility pole. Becker, who had been awarded a safe driving citation by his company just the day previous, was forced to send his passengers back to Clare and sideline the bus for an inspection. Mrs. Jeffery was ticketed by State Police Trooper Robertson of the Mt. Pleasant post for driving to the left of the center line. In another accident north of Clare at US-27 and M-61 Bertrand Eifler of Gould City, 52, and his daughter-in-law Mrs, Margaret Eifler, 25, of Richland were both killed when a car driven by Henry Morse, 59 of Detroit struck their auto in attempting to pass on the snow-covered pavement. Injured also were Eifler's wife Maxine and their granddaughter Patricia Eifler, 2, besides Morse.
