Gar mel 'f^Owt-sCopy Thursday. February 27, 1964 Establi-hed 1878 12 Pages New Series Vol. 72, No. 25 Who Would Steal Kids' N.F. Money? Five March of Dimes canisters were reported taken from Farwell business places, by pre-teen- agers recently and this was distressing news to the campaign workers. On the brighter side, the Gallops and Sharps of the Farwell Bar, sponsored an auction sale, at their place of business February 16. Baked goods, clothing, furniture, etc., were donated by the public and Farwell merchants, and the Gallops turned over $300.00 to Mrs. Louis Gee, Clare County March of Dimes Director. Of this amount, $45.00 was received from March of Dimes cards. A certificate of appreciation was presented to the Gallops from the National Foundation. In the past 12 years prior to 1964, Clare county has raised $28,262.89 and spent on county patients care, $27,238.23, 960 of every dollar has been spent in the county with only 4£ going to the National Foundation. Five canisters may not seem like much, Mrs. Gee says, but it could be the price of a cripple child's special shoes. The county is still caring for polio Continued on Page 8 Our grandfathers were fond of pictures like this taken in the lumber woods of their day. It's much more rare now, in these days to find virgin timber being cut. Webber Brothers lumber producers cut this Elm wood on the farms of Orville and- Lyle Bates near Clare. Sentinel photo. Cutting Virgin Elm; No More In State? cant Take Beats Off Dogs Into THIS THE STORY? Lots of people have troubles, but Ithaca's basketball players last Friday night had flat-footed inertia, - - and they had Clare! The upset-minded Pioneers simply WANTED TO W_N! And this photo at the peak of the excitement illustrates it with Jerry Russell crashing in for a lay-up score while four opponents stand in attitudes of aj- most spectator roles. Whatever the story of Clare's surprise victory over Ithaca, it was the BIG story at Clare High this week. * . Sentinel photo. Pioneers' Upset Win Leaves Ithaca Tied For Conference Title A lumbering operation going on recently near Clare is not exactly like the industry that used to keep area pioneers busy, but it could revive memories of Michigan's rich history as a timber producer. Cut and hauled out from the farmlands of Orville and Lyle Bates seven miles northeast of Clare were several thousand boardfeet of Gray Elm in logs. Weber Brothers, a lumber producing firm in Beal City said it is virgin timber and the woodlot on the Bates land may be the last remaining stand of virgin Elm Makes Sense "*'" The Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society, Michigan Division, Inc., has asked all the Hospital Governing Boards to consider the removal of cigarette vending machines or other means of public sale, from the hospitals. •»'?->■ An almost unbelievable thing happened (as the saying goes), to the Ithaca High basketball powerhouse Friday on its way to a conference championship! Coach Bob Sippel's Pioneer cagers beat Ithaca, —tripping up the Yellow- jakcets and sending them sprawling into first-place tie with Corunna. And you know what? The Pioneers, doormats for every other team in the league and in the area,— these same helpless, smarting CHS players are the only ones in the Mid- Michigan B League that have beaten both the leaders, Ithaca and Corunna. Clare has now inflicted a painful loss on both top teams and earned the right to be called "Giant Killers'.' Friday night's contest between Clare and Ithaca here was supposed to be like leading a helpless green and white "lamb" into an arena with an invincible powerhouse. But there was a difference this time, the lamb stunned the powerful opponent 50-47. The outcome was a happy stunning surprise for CHS student fans, row on row on row of them in the crowded gym who gave more noisy, freinzed support than the team got for any other tilt this season. It stunned sportswriters in the area and state who had voted Ithaca the number four, or five team in the top ten in Michigan. And the Clare victory was a fatal, stunning thrust to the Ithaca hopes for 1963-64 cage supremacy. Up until Friday night the Yellow jackets had won 13 and lost only two games. They had scored 1,085 points against just 813 for their opponents. The game Friday could not have contained more suspense and excitement if it was the product of a fiction writers script outline! Coach Sippel's strategy was toplay carefully/Slowly and keep control of the ball as much as possible against the taller Ithaca re- bounders. The tactics paid off with a 9-4 lead for the Pioneers at the first quarter mark. Clare's lead increased and held at from five to 11 points thourgh most of the rest of the game. An exciting climax in the final period brought the Yellowjackets within one point of Clare with less than a minute to play. An Ithaca player's chance to tie the score was lost when a free throw bounced outside the hoop. With but 21 seconds left before the final buzzer, Chuch Stirling was fouled and calmly dropped his shots through the net to make the three-point winning margin. Two things were un- sually memorable in the victory for Clare. One was Clare's tireless ballhawking and amazing defense that held the big- scoring Ithaca quintet to 47 points. This was the same lineup that topped 100 points against hapless Clare High in an earlier meeting this season. And the other strong factor in the win was Green and White skill and luck at the charity-throw line. Clare poured 30 points through the nets led by Stirling's ten counters. Despite close calling by officials that had Clare's Jerry Russell and Patterson fouled out early in the last quarter, Ithaca could total only nine points via the free toss route. Coach Sippell left the gym after the game on the shoulders of his excited and noisy players, but he had time to shout credits to them for their courageous and heads-up play. The Pioneers have only to meet Harrison in the gym there to end their regular season and allow final practicing before the district tournaments. Part of the fun for Clare High in Friday's win over Ithaca was the wild enthusiasm and great team support from the stands. (You must have been in hibernation if you don't know that the Pioneers beat •Mighty Ithaca, 50-147). Here the bench and Coach Bob Sippeli whoop it up for the Pioneer's good scoring show, and cheerleaders do gymnastics as they organize the crowd's howling approval. Sentinel photos, more are on the sports page A-4. Also Coaches 'Game Of Life* Bob Davenport, Taylor University Football coach, was well received in Clare over the week end. His first appearance was at the Clare - Ithaca basketball game here. Later on the young people and a number of adults met Davenport at an "open house" held at the Clare Methodist Church. Bob Grimes, a music teacher at Clarkston, and brother- in-law of Forrest Meek, one of the youth counselors, was also a guest for the week end. The youth met with their guests for breakfast at the church Saturday morning, and later Davenport talked to adult workers with youth, In speaking to the youth, the Taylor University Coach said "We all should know our best, and give our best in whatever we may do or whatever vocation we choose. To illustrate, he cited football, and stated that as a coach, he expected the best of his boys, and then challenged his listeners to always put forth their best efforts in whatever they do, whether in sports or their daily living. Sunday was also a big day at the Methodist Church with Bob Davenport speaking to a mixed group of youth and adults during the Sunday School hour, and bringing the message at the morning worship in the state. Many of the logs, piled beside the C & O railroad tracks here for loading Monday were 25 to 30 inches in diameter. Weber Brothers cutting and loading the logs were not the only ones to handle the lumber. It was sold before it was loaded, to the L.H. Shay Veneer Co. of Germfask, Michigan for exportation to European veneer makers A Shay company representative at St. Johns, Archie Taylor, said that his firm exports more than 90 percent of all Birdseye Maple that goes abroad. His card carries the price of Gray Elm as $125. per thousand feet, f.o.b. car. No ,one knows how the giant trees orTthe Bates' farms happened to be passed over in the days when this area was one vast timber-cutting and harvesting beehive. Reason for the sale of the timber now is the spreading danger of Dutch Elm disease rendering the trees useless, and their saleability because of the age and size of the trees. Not so long ago a similar Operation was harvesting immense virgin maples from the farm of Everett Carncross in the same general neighborhood. Clare Draws Reed City Li Tourney If Clare Hi has any sharp offense to unveil in the coming first round of the state basketball tournaments, it didn't show on Tuesday night this week when Harrison clipped the Pioneers 60-30. Unimpressed by Clare's victory over Ithaca last Friday, the Harrison cagers hit a big average of their shots from the floor. Chuck Stirling was high point man for CHS. Clare's first opponent in the district will be Reed City, in whose gym the games will be played. The game is to start March 3rd at 7:30 p.m. The survivor of this contest will meet the winner of a lakeview Big Rapids game in district finals on March 6. State Parks Tentative approval was given last week by the Conservation Commission to a proposal that dogs be barred from state parks from May 1 through September 30th. The dog ban is due to growing complaints that the animals dirty campgrounds^ often howl at night, and a nuisance to park visitors. Dogs will not be allowed on bathing beaches at any time of the year. Campers and other park users may take dogs into state parks and recreation areas from October 1 through April 30, if kept under immediate control on leashes. Parks would remain open during the summer season to seeing eye dogs, dogs owned by employees who live in the parks and dogs taking part in hunting, and training in areas where permitted. ■-••■---' e Don't Be One In 2 Million This may be motorists final week to avoid the long lines of last-minute license tab shoppers who will undoubtely jam every Secretary of State branch office starting on February 24. In mid-February, Secretary of State James M. Hare said that more than 1-million Michigan motorists had purchases 1964 licenses, but "we still have more than 2-million to go.' "Unfortunately, more of that 2-million will be standing in line the last week of the rush, getting elbowed around in the big crowds," Hare said. Clare city police Wednesday were questioning a suspect in the areas first attempted armed robbery complaint in many years. Arrested Tuesday night by State Troopers and confessing guilt in the assault was George Leman Bailey 24, of Harrison. He broke down during questioning Wednesday and made his admission to a Trooper who was fingerprinting him, Charles E. Buchholz of Clare, manager of a large service station in downtown Clare told officers that he was through work Monday night and getting into his parked car •'hear the rear of a dairy products store at the corner of McEwan and Third streets.when the robbery attempt was made. A man approached suddenly and poked Buchholz' back with an object held out of sight in his pocket. The man growled, "This is a stickup''. Buchholz struck at the man, knocking him back and off balance, and jumped into his car and locked the doors before the thug could recover. He told police that the assilant pounded his car windows with his fists. Clare Chief Milan Shepard, Officer Roger Depue and Trooper Hoffman from Mt. Pleasant worked on the case with a description furnished by Buchholz. In more police action during the week, a young thief who got away with some cash from Loomis Welding change drawer February 4, was confronted with evidence against Continued on Page 8 May Open July Camp Celebrate For Girl Scouts Here Beauty Week Three Families Start Mr. and Mrs. Bill Walter are getting familiar with Telfarm, a new system of record keeping and anaylsis. They are being instructed by specialist Russell Howes from MSU. More pictures on page A-3. Both hopes and plans are running high for this summer's Girl Scout day camp to be held in Clare in July. Mrs. William Ulrich and Mrs. Richard Ulrich have been appointed co-directors for the local camp and are now taking training in Saginaw for their job. Members of Civitan, who have taken a deep interest in the land project, have already been working at clearing the camp site owned by the Clare Outdoor Girl's Club. Each Girl Scout in the three levels of Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes will receive a camp folder some time ih March. Many adults have already offered their time and assistance for the camp but more women and a number of teenagers will be needed. Anyone interested in serving as a camp counselor is asked to contact either Mrs. Ulrich. Clare scouts joined the Coleman group at the Coleman School forest site and 105 girls attended. The Coleman girl scouts have been invited to attend the day camp at Clare this year. Mrs. Earl Hacker, Troop consultant, states there are almost 150 registered girl scouts in Clare, a net the leaders have hopes that this summer ahd next year's plans and activities will be the best yet. Recognizing National Hairdressers week- recently six beauty operators from Clare and Rosebush went to the Ardis Rest Home, to donate their services there. Twenty permanents, 28 haircuts, and 22 wave sets were involved in the day's activities, making the women there very happy. Supplies were given by Ray Kerns of Saginaw, and Pierce Supply Company of Lansing. Towels were furnished by the Reliable Linen of Cadillac. Operators were Erma Elliott of Rosebush, Evelyn Lutz, Emma Lee Kaiser, Erna Kay Northoh, • Madeline Hinkle and Ruth Schroeder, New "Telfarm" System A new aid to farm record keeping and management, a system called Telfarm is being put to use in Clare county by three families pioneering in the program. Telfarm's system of controls and bookkeeping is designed to accomplish two goals according to George MacQueen, Extension Service director for Clare county; There will be an electronically computed record interpretation for the farm manager. This is a tool to aid him in making management de cisions. Second, Telfarm is a wider sounding board to reflect the health and condition of agriculture in the entire state. The system of on-farm and in-the-home management assistance is a joint undertaking between the Agriculture Experiment Station and Co-operative Extension Service at Michigan State University in East Lansing. A description of its purpose is boiled down to the short definition: "A new generation of Continued on page .
