entmel eS tm^i^ Ospt- Thursday. November 1, 1962 Established 1878 New Series-• Volume 72, No, 8 totes Future In Balanc Local Election Outcome Leans To GOP Michigan voters in next Tuesday's General Election will decide not only the question of who is to be the governor for the next term, but. in answering major questions of greatest implication for the state, their decisions will effect ti.e future in regard to other vital matters: , The Supreme Court. Area Representation in The State Senate. TJae Acceptance or Repudiation of the Proposed Con stellon. .PMlesophy d This State's Dependence Upon Washington. Michigan's Fiscal Direction. Local politics being as they are, long ruled by Republicans in domination from the county courthouse down, the rivalry for elected positions in Clare cannot be counted on to create intense election activity. But in the minds of most voting age residents, the agreement by both major parties on the district and state level, that this election is a last-ditch struggle to find a deep, indelible pattern for Michigan's future, <is an indication of the extra importance of the Tuesday election. And the intense, serious tenor of party campaigning leaves no doubt in voter's minds that both majorpar- ties regard the next term for a Michigan governor and administrative officials as of the greatest significanc e as a launching period in Michigan's modern history. Major candidates of both parties are campaigning hard with the urgent argu*- ments that their parties are best able to launch new Michigan progress, and be its guide. On the local and area scenes, voters Tuesda^ will find a full slate o\f Republican candidates for county offices and the Democratic party is prer senting a more complete slate than in many former elections. i For county clerk and rei- gister of deeds: Will Hen* derson (R) incumbent, and K&thfyn Drew <D); * ON A FROSTY EARLY MORNING these Hereford calves, part of ihe largest shipment ever received by beef producers here, are being driven, out of cattle cans after their week's trip from Texas.

It was a cold night for CHS football fortunes, and a cold night for the meager crowd in the stands. The Pioneers will end *£heir season at Mt. Pleasant tomorrow night when they meet Sacred Heart Academy.' The defeat by St.Louis makes the argument over the disallowed touchdown in the Durand game meaningless now, except for the pursuit of a correct ruling and the worthwhile insistence that prep games should be refereed by officials who know the book. Coach George Perry had said all week that St.Louis had shown enough improvement through the .season to be capable of a surprise. The teams were evenly matched. Scoring thrills came all in the first half with the third and fourth periods being mostly a see-saw battle that didn't change the score after intermission. A bright spot for the ispectators wa s a halftime show by the Pioneer band that was centered around a salute to seniors who were playing in their last game show. The band marched on the field with a smart company front and then performed precision maneuvers and the customary block S, and C for the two schools.The music was directed by Lloyd Conley, band instructor. Police Chief To Enter usiness The resignation of William Bell as Clare Police Chief was .made by tetter to the City Commission this week. Bell is reported to have purchased the business formerly operated by Jim Cook, a distributorship of supplies to garages, machine shops and gas stations. Biggest Roundup Time A trainload of beef calves that will "neaer see grass", arrived here Monday, having been "imported", from Texas and Montana in the largest shipment ever received in Clare at one time. The 700 Herefords went to Seibt Farms, and to Cyriel and Walter Bolle to be barn-raised for market. You think of one of the first western cowboy ballads you ever remembered.. part of the verse goes; "—It's Beef,Beef,Beef I hear them cry! Git along, git along, Git along, little dogies* For you'll all be beef steers By and by." This 13-car trainload Of. calves will make plenty of good beef when they finally go to market in Detroit about ten months from now. They will be averaging about 900 pounds each for the heifers, and something like HOOpounds for the steer average, Ferd Seibt said. They arrived here at individual weights of little* over 400 pounds. The freight Mil atone on the critters amounts to more than $5,600. at the rate of two dollars per hundredweight. Seibt Farms, combining the beef facilities of Jake, Ferd, and Duane Seibt,and the Bolle brothers' farms receive large shipments of young beefs approximately three times a year, usually in October, January, and July. .The producers for Michigan Livestock "Exchange say that a tendency is to market beef at lesser weights now days.'Buyers of large quantities of beef cater to retail customers desire for smaller cuts of roasts and steaks Thes makes smaller animals a more advantageous size. "It's beef,beef,beef.... I hear them cry." EVERYBODY UP for the klckofi!

Rumors that a shakeup. in Clare County's Highway Department may not stop with a change of personnel on the Road Commission will have many residents and county officials watching with interest when the Road Commission elects a new chairman at the first regular meeting on the first Wednesday in January, 1963. The organization of the Commission will be an indication of whether more changes in supervisory and administrative personnel are due.. Veteran county officeholder Fred L. Jones of Harrison is a good bet to step into the chairmanship of the three - man Commission with the retirement of Avery Barber. Barber is presently the chairman, but his term is finished wit h the end of 1962 and his bid for reappointment by county supervisors failed in action at the October session of that Board.-''''"Glenn Ooyd of Grant township was ap pointed in his place. . Jones has a "record of almost 6 1/2 years as a member of the Road Com mission. Before that he was a county supervisor for nearly 21 years during which time he served as chairman of the body for over two years, and was appointed to membership orfthe supervisors' County Roads Committee. Jones would like to take over the chairmanship of the commission, and there is a considerable group of influential supervisors and county residents that looks with favor on his candidacy for the position. Some measure of criticism of the County Highway Department and dissatisfaction with services and operation have been noted and the resulting pressures felt by both supervisors and commissioners alike, The Sentinel has learned. One county official who prefered not to be quoted directly told the Sentinel that Jones seniority on the Road Commission, his experience, and the confidence that supervisors place in him make, him an insider for the chairmanship if he is nominated by his two fellow commissioners in January. Slow-boiling troubles in the County Highway Department have been a sub- Won't Be The Same Clare County's clerk, Will Henderson, a veteran of many* an election night marathon of duty in his courthouse office in Harrison will be absent from his station Tuesday.He is itl the hospital at Mt.

I when a State Auditor General's report took exception to mis-use of county-owned road equipment, failure to advertise for bids in the purchase of material and equipment, unrecove- red "overpayment" for vendor's services, faulty inventory control, equipment records, accounts receivable and other required record keeping. The critical report was made for the period of one year ending" on December 31, 1961 and submitted by the office of State Auditor General Billie S. Farnum. It was a routine annual examination of all county offices and records that, while summarizing that that most county offices were, being maintained in a satisfactory manner, it made more than three and one-half typewritten pages of exceptions in operation of the Road Commission and "directed" that corrective steps be put ir effect. The report noted that referral of some matters in the report would be made to the Attorney General's office for proper action The Road Commission was by no means' singled out as the only agency drawing suggestions or criticism as notes were included to correct faults in the operation of County Justices of the Peace, So cial Welfare Board, County Board of Education also But the activities of the Road Commission, termed in the report, "unauthorized, improper, and illegal'-' were immediately regarded by supervisors to be a reflection on the policies of the Commission chairman. It has been more or less common knowledge since the report was sent to supervisors on September 13, this year, that supervisors who harbored dissatisfaction with Avery Barber as Commission chairman held the disclosures in the report as their major reason. Operation wise, „ some below-surface corrents of dissatisfaction with the Road Department have been reported due to delays in promised work schedules and failure to meet completion deadlines because of what seemed to be over- estimation of capabilities of department personnel and equipment. It has been reported that there is a lack of co-operation and communication among members of the commission itself. There is a charge that the chairman issued directions and orders with out the knowledge, or at least the agreemeBt^before hand of other members of that body.
