Appearing were Dr. John Wood, from the Davis Medical Clinic in Mt.Pleasant, and Dr. Leroy Sterling, from Central Michigan University, presently engaged in research activity on detection of heart defects and diseases. Dr. Sterling was introduced as one of a very few persons outside of larger university centers having obtained a Michigan Heart Association research grant.

A lunch meeting Monday to organize fund-raising for an all-faiths chapel at the Traverse City State Hospital drew an attendance of 22 local people and gave them an outline An appeal to all citizens to join in promoting Michigan products nationwide as a means of creating more jobs in the state came from a meeting of Herbert G.

Peered At the Tea Leaves And What Did I See? "And it' came to pass is the way some of the most interesting tales begin, and maybe the interest is whetted because the the phrase hints of an insight that foretold events to come. Well, certain members of the Clare High School graduating class might *have communicated with "spirits", or saw a crystal ball vision, or read their tea leaves. You know how high school classes have fun with fanciful predictions about each others futures? Authors of a piece like this in the Pioneer Annual for the year 1951 have seen their lighthearted fun prove remarkably accurate after they wrote, "We who have studied our classmates, make this (1951) " prophecy about *their future. . . " It could have been written by Barbara Paxton Wal- dron, literary editor for .. the *51 CHS Annual, or Marilyn Masten Lamont who was the society editor or the class editor, or any other on the staff. Some of the best magic workers and crystal ball. gazers like to remain anonymous arid never divulge the source of their powers. They said that Don Barber a member of the class of 1951 would be the operator of a drug store,— , and he is 1 Don graduated from Ferris Institute School of Pharmacy after finishing high school at Clare and now manages the Cla- beusch Drug store in Alma. .Looking into the future, the prediction for Betty Ahrens (now Mrs. Marlin Alexander), was not exact but close! She was seen as a cafe operator while in reality she and her husband are proprietors Of a retail shoe business. But at least it is located next door to Anderson's Drug store in Clare where food is served at the lunch counter. Just read what the prophecy said about Ron Cook, another one of the grads of 1951. "After many years of stamping prices on cans, Bud Cook is now manager of the local Kroger store. . . " And about Lee Sowle, "Watch the birdie and smile". Rather supernatural prophesying^ wouldn't you say? Oh, sure, these fellows probably indicated interest in their vocations while yet students at Clare High, but how often does a youthful interest turn out to be a lifetime livlihood a dozen years later? How about Dick Hubel, of whom it was said he is now a rodeo rider? Well, he rides! And Sally Bicknell who, in 1951 was seen in the future as Mrs. Bob Burgess with a pair of twins. She did become Mrs. Rob ert Burgess and she is the mother of twins! of the The 1951 edition CHS Annual turned up one day recently when its owner, Gayla Hochstetler was _ searching through some keepsakes. She had been a high school sophomore in that year. The striking accuracy of many of the predictions seemed like good material for a feature story. Another marriage prediction came true after the prophecy said that Jo Ann Armentrout would become Mrs. Jim Calkins "and live in a house by a river". Forecast for Dick Thayer was a career as an air pilot. Now, this many years later he is an Air Force flyer. Ane the "hand" wrote that he would live in Traverse City, which he did for a time not so long ago. of the need for a religious "home" at the hospital for 3000 patients and additional 800 employees there. Clare county's prorated share of the cost of the chapel is $3,600 and the entire project is expected to amount to $300,000. Clare County Probate Judge Robert Campbell is the head of a county committee that hopes to gather cash and pledges and gifts. The county now has 32, residents who are under treatment in the hospital. Dr. M.D. Sommerness, superintendent of the hospital described the operation of the Traverse City hospital and compared it to the normal routine in functions within a city of nearly 4000 .persons . except that it has no church An important member of a "team" that should be performing a vital service' in treatment of patients' needs is missing with the lack of a familiar church home for them, said Rev. George P. Dominick,Protestant chaplain from the hospital. He enlarged on the subject by explaining the role of religion and spiritual guidance for patients as complimenting those of psychological and medical care. New name in the doubles standings of the top three is Floyd Stanley and W. Hughes with 1269 to follow Tony Branigan and Ralph Slocum, and Don Holbrook and Paul Manoyian in that order. B^l Wilkie's 682 was strong* enough"to' hold first place in the singles, but a 661 series-by Ralph Le- posky placed him in second as a new money winner as latest scores go. Identical scores of 660 were shot by Gary Agle and Bob Hickey to pull into a tie with Dick Penny for third place. In the weekend shooting at Clare Alleys, high individual actual score for one game was Dick Alexander's 252 and his 608 series was also high actual score for a series.

He spoke of the world affairs and the common markets, citing DeGaulle' s problems. He said, "However remote from Clare, world affairs still affect us in some way". He advised the women to read and keep informed about world affairs, because no action can be taken unless there is complete understanding about the problems which confront us. . He mentioned a list of .best selling books, fiction and non-fiction, indicating what people are thinking of and most interested in including outer space, life in Africa, and social problems.

The March program will be presented by the Civic Participation Committee, Mrs. Bessie Nystrom,chairman Members. were also urged to keep the date of April 21st open for the district meeting which will be held in Clare. Dr. Sterling exhibited an apparatus, the Radio Electrocardiograph which enables science to measure heart actions and strains on a patient while he is engaged in routine work, exercise, or emotions. It is an advance beyond a system by which a patient must now lie still to allow wires to transmit heart action signals to a fixed-position machine. He said that the machine Dr. Stirling Presides At Assembly The Fourth. Annual Congress of the Professions was held in Lansing Friday and Saturday, February 8 and 9 at the Jack Tar Hotel.

No Cut In School LunchHour The Clare School Board Monday tabled a proposal to shorten the regular noon lunch period and indicated that no further action will be taken on the issue until the beginning of school again next September. And in other consideration at the meeting, the Board began study of a project that may result in re-training of adults to prepare them for jobs in higher skills than they now possess. The shorter noon period has been discussed for some time as helpful to a situation in which students who now eat lunch at school find a full hour to be more time than they need, and problems about the occupation of their remaining time arise. The Board's tabling of the proposal was to allow more time to find out if too short a lunch hour would be a hardship on students who walk a long distance home in the town for their lunches. Talking about a need for certain specialized vocational training for adults in the Clare community, the Board appointed a representative committee of its members to meet with representatives of local industry to discuss the possible start of such a project.
