Clare High gave Ches- aning an inch in Friday's homecoming football game here- and•.<*■» pesky Indians almost took a mile. The game score came out a squeaky 14-12 in favor of the Pioneers after some anxious second-half moments. Looking like a great, courageous little team in earlier season losing to mighty Ithaca, and in a bitterly protested tie with Durand.the Pioneers showed ■ a puzzling reversal of form with a victory to show for a performance not quite up to the standard of earlier play. But the Green and White played- a good offense in the first half, and stood off Chesaning's bid in the last part of the game to emerge a winner. To summarize the game that excited and thrilled a capacity homecoming crowd, it was the difference between Skip Breen on rushes into the line and the surprise throwing arm of Butch Eberhart against the one-man show of Chesaning's Dave Pet- rosky running, throwing, calling the plays, and generally filling the whole stage as"the Indian's one- man team. Clare stunned Chesan- ing with an early score when Merve Davis plunged through his right guard on a play that originated on the ciare 20, and stepped into the clear for a dash 80 yards across the line. "TheV.game was only four Minutes old. with the Pioneers in front 7-0 after the conversion. After Chesaning was held for downs and Clare was deep in enemy ter- Clare County Supervisors reached final adjournment of their October session on Tuesday after seven days qf approving budgets and salaries, equalizing the tax rolls of the townships, and receiving reports of their own committees. They appointed a new County Road Commissioner in Glen Lloyd who replaces Avery Barber, former chairman, and they instructed the Planning Commission to submit an ordinance for countywide building restrictions by January when they will debate it and take action on this controversial subject. County Supervisor Chairman Walter Ehle said that the equalization report as finally approved in the meeting shows a--raise of some $3 million of State Equalized. The 1962 a- mount w'ill be over 46 million dollars. Lloyd was appointed to the Clare County Road ritory again, a second TD was denied by a lost fumble on the 11. Merve Davis set up another touchdown that proved to be Clare's last one When he blocked an Indian punt which a Ciare piayer recovered on the 23 yard line. Jerry Russell ran the distance Into the Indian end zone from the four—yard line two plays later and again the point conversion was successful. At halftime the score was Clare 14, Chesaning,0. In the second half, a desperate Petrosky threw passes long, threw often, threw to the left and right and won two touchdowns for his efforts. But both point conversions failed and that was the difference in .the final outcome. Tense excitement with the aerial threat, frequent pass interceptions by both sides, a slashing kickoff return to the Clare 49-yard line by Dick Sharp provided the cheering mon- ents in the final half. Eberhart, a standout guard in a good Clare line made an appearance as quarterback and a fine passer. He was converted because of an early season ankie injury that crippled his effectiveness in line play. With him in the Clare Christmas That Soon? Members of the Clarabella Extension Club will meet October 25" at the home; of Mrs-.. Dewey Wood and are instructed to bring ideas for the group's Christmas Workshop. With predicted snow flurries making weather news in Michigan this week we needed a news oddity item like flowers starting* to bloom to cheer up the dread of coming winter. Mrs. Lulu Shaw, 1010 Court Street called to let us know that her Forsy- thia, by nature an early spring glory of yellow, began blooming on October 11. Getting lots of sun at the southeast corner of her house, the bush apparently mistook the warm spell for a blush of spring...... and here it isn't time yet for Indian Summer! Quoted from the Cud- ahy, Wisconsin Reminder Enterprise is this observation, "Television is a truly remarkable invention. The same program that puts you and your wife to sleep keeps the neighbors awake." The SENTINEL, in apologies for the grossly imperfect appearance of first issues printed by its new offset process, has one more explanation to make: the partons and subscribers from outside the close area who did not receive copies of the past issue have a iright to complain. Spoiled copies left a short supply-for mailing a d -txth Sentinel ad- verths.rs hi.ing z right to expect coverage of the shopping area far-away subscribers were victims of the lack of enough papers. Open House Attendance Is P-TA Record Five hundred fifty parents, teachers and friends were in attendance Monday evening at the P.T.A. meeting for "open house" at the Clare Public School. Girl Scouts took care of the younger children. The Mascot Dog, for having the largest percentage of parents present, was won by Mrs. Eroh's first grade room. The rooms were attractively decorated, to show evidence of the children's achievements In different areas of work. A bulletin board and show cases in the hall were also arranged in special displays by different roams for the event. Those in charge of the evening's program, are greatly pleased at the fine spirit showed by the parents, and feel that their efforts are rewarded, for this record breaking attendance. Dr. Archie McKinnon of the , Mt, Pleasant Child Guidance Clinic will be featured on the program for the November meeting. It will be held in the High School. Parents are urged to mark their calendar for the 19th and plan to attend. Success Deserve s More ''Agriculture has abolished,, here in America, one of" mankind's oldest anxieties, the fear of hunger and famine; yet it is more often referred to in terms of surplus of sub's ity than in terms of success," declared State Master William J. Brake of Lansing last week before delegates to the 89th annual convention" of the Michigan State Grange at Fremont. "As successful as American agraculture has been, it does not provide to farmers the rewards, in terms of dollars or purchasing power, that their success deserves Commission by majority approval of the supervisors. Six applicants for the vacancy created by Avery Barber's term expiration were considered in the choice. Barber was one of the applicants, but Lloyd, a Grant township farmer won the position on the first ballot. .Other members of the commission held over with unexpired terms are Norman Myers and Fred Jones. Election of one of the three members as.chairman will be first business in the board's pending organization at their first meeting. Frank Coker of Farwell was re-appointed chairman of the County Welfare Board. No significant changes in department budgets of salaries of county employees were enacted, Ehle said, "The county has a good chance to come through fiscal 1962 in the "black" and end a series of deficits" the chairman predicted. In 1960 the county .eauce ended the year with a 17 thousand dollar deficit; 1961 ran 11 thousand In the red. Ehle said that economies have been enforced Expressway Crash Pins an In Car WCTU Meets The 75th Convention of the Womens Christian Temperance Union of the Michigan 10th District Convened at the Church of God on East Ashman, in Midland.

'rogram The summer topical fluoride program, a public health service that has helped prevent decay in the teeth of nearly 400,000 Michigan children is being discontinued or curtailed in a number of Michigan corr.munities where the benefit , of fluoridated drinking water is already paying off. Because of increasing demand for this service and because the program reached its maximum capacity in terms of personnel and resources, the state health department has decided to concentrate its future efforts in areas not having public water supplies and areas not serv ed by fluoridated water. The health department, which has been assisting local communities with the topical fluoride program since 1949, has established a new policy for program eligibility based on the number of years a com munity has had fluoridated fluoridated water for at least one vc-ar will not need to who : dt n>- <=. id .jt-:' •eschoolers „<) continuous :/i next summer's "cuent programs. Three persons, one a local man, were hospitalized Tuesday morning as a result of a two-car crash on the entrance to the Expressway east of Clare, and old US-10. Roy Kinsey, 54 of Clare drove a C&O Railroad truck into the side of another car when the other driver failed to stop at the expressway entrance route. Injured most seriously was Clarence Polhman, 60 of Toledo, Ohio the driver of the car that was struck. He was pinned in the wrecked auto for • almost half an hour before he was freed and taken to Central Michigan Community Hospital with serious fra- tures of both legs and a badly lacerated left elbow. His wife Florence, 60 was a passenger in his car and received facial injuries that loosened several teeth. She,too was admitted to the hospital, but in less serious condition. Kinsey had lacerations of the face and bruises where the impact threw his head against his wind- shield. There were more simple hurts to his hands. Polhman, suffering from shock and bleeding, was trapped in his car when the impact crushed.in the door beside his seat behind the wheeL Unable to free him, the Clute Garage wrecker enlisted aid from a Consumers Power service truck and the two trucks tied on to the sides of the car to pull in opposite directions and spring him loose. At the hospital, Polhman demanded to be moved to Toledo where he was taken by Stevenson ambulance. Kinsey, who said that he was entering the ex pressway driving east, told investigating police that the other car did not stop at the intersection. Polhman and his wife were touring north Michigan on their vacation. He is employed in Toledo -at a 'railroad repair shop and is a mach- inest. by resistance to raises in salaries and raises asked in county department budgets. Explaining that the supervisors are striving to operate within the limits of expected revenue, and that the public good depended on "living within income", the supervisors were able to convince staff workers and department heads that spending increases were not justified at the present. Ehle feels that a surplus for contingencies may be accumulated if the present program can be adhered to. Action on the coming ordinance to establish a minimum code for building in the county was taken on the final day of the session and is the latest move in the controversy between the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors together in an avowed program to eliminate substandard housing and opposed by creators of developments and rural "sub-divisions" in parts of the county where they feel thet their enterprises are not on too low a level. Herschel Reiss, creator and developer of Lake Thirteen and more recently Surrey Lake near Far- well was appointed on the Planning Commission to replace former Chairman, Robert Carter who resigned. Two new members of the commission appointed to fill vacancies are Al Bizauskas, manager of Wilson State Fark at Harrison and Lyle Skinner personnel department head at Holley Carraretor in Clare. Ron Schunk was re-appointed on t'.e commission. Students ress There will be no class? at the Ccie'px&n Intei mediate School on .th» morning of.

It is hoped that the'conferences will do 'much .to* supplement the report cards, offer parent, and teacher an opportunity, to explore the child's . progress, .his behavior, and the reasons behind his success or failure in "schcjoL: Due to the half-day sessions, these" conferences are doubly, important»to both parents and teachers.

The .kitchen is to be remodeled and equipment added. Anew dining room service unit Will speed up meals, Broiled food, and hot and cold dishes Will be served more quickly and fresher from the hands of those who prepare the meals. ' - The Highway report on sightseeing had this to say: Nearly 50 .percent of the state's travelers come from neighboring Great Lakes states and most of them stay in motels. About 40 percent spend two to six days on vacation and 25 percent vacation for seven days or more. These facts and others about Michigan's tourist industry are contained in an "electronic report" on nearly 150,000 people who stopped for information during July and August at the Highway Department's Tourist Information Cen«- ters, , Facts about the travelers were processed by computer. Highway Department Officials said one of the surprising results was the large number of Michigan residents who stopped at our Tourist Information Centers for information. Almost one-third of the persons served were Michigan residents. Following Sightseeing as a vacation interest were camping, swimming, fishing and boating. The electronic report ing service was inaugrated July 1, in permanent Highway Department Tourist Information Centers at New Buffalo, Mackinaw City and Menominee and at a Mobile Travel Information Unit at St. Louis, Later, it was used at mobile information units stationed at Monroe and Houghton Lake. The Highway Department's travel .information program will be expanded next year with the addition of permanent information centers on the interstate 75 Freeway near Monroe and on US-2 in Gogebic County.
