Ten Cents Copy Fourteen Pages Clare, Michigan April 14, 1966 Eighty-seventh Year New Series Vol. 74. No. 32t \\ $26Q,0 A local election on May 9 in the City of Clare will submit to voters the question of whether the city shall borrow 85 thousand dollars for constructing a sewage treatment lagoon and improvements to the sanitary sewer system, and 175 thousand dollars to pay part of the cost of improving the city water supply system. The listed improvements and modernization of the water s u p p 1 y system include a new larger elevated water tank, an addition to the iron removal plant, a new water supply well and extension and enlargement of water mains. Voting will be on the question of whether the city should be bonded to pay the share of the cost of the improvements. A majority of voters saying "Yes" on the propositions will authorize the city commission to borrow a total of $260,000. to pay the local share of an esti- Two Wa&an&ies On Coleman School Board The Coleman Board of Education met for its regular session Monday night and called for a special meeting to be held on Monday, May 2, to receive bids for the alterations which are to be made to the Intermediate School building during the summer. Of prime importance,too is the coming annual school election to be held on June 13, for which the Board passed the necessary resolutions. All persons registered with their city or township clerks are eligible to vote; anyone not already registered must do so by May 16. There will be two board positions on the ballot at that election, one for a four-year term in which incumbent Murray Moore will seek re-election and one for a one-year term with incumbent Carl Toth seeking election. Others wishing to run for either of these positions may pick up nominating petitions at the superintendent's office. These must be returned by May 14. Under a recently adopted policy, the Board has approved an equivalency diploma for Andrew W. Jackson now serving with the U. S. Navy where he completed the requirements for High School graduation. _ The Board approved the hiring of eleven new teachers for next school term and has called for a brief special meeting for next Monday, April 18, to ratify the master labor relations contract with the teachers. Negotiations on the master contract are still under way but it is anticipated that they will be concluded before that date. Intermediate school principal Keith D. Wing gave a report on the recently completed Adult Education program, the first such -program for Coleman, in which 27 adults took part. mated total project cost of $650,500.00. Two propositions to appear on the May 9 ballot will list the specific uses for the money in more detail. The first will describe the sanitary sewer system improvements as; A waste treatment lagoon. A pumping station at the la- gon together with compressors and piping. A road and fencing on the land site east of the city where US- 27 and US-10 expressways intersect. More listed improvements in this part of the over all project are sanitary sewer extensions in a westward direction to the Clare city limits where an industrial site is being developed. Detailing the proposed water system improvements, the ballot will list: Purchase and installation of water mains (replacement with larger mains where needed -Ed.). An elevated water storage tank An addition to the city's present iron removal plant to increase capacity. As part of the project, Clare's water supply will be increased by the addition of a new well with "appurtenances and attachments,' which are assumed to mean a water pressure pump, piping and valves, and a well house or structure to enclose the pump and well head. In the lengthy resolution acted on at the March 21 meeting, Commissioner Tom Bradley made the motion for its adoption and voting was unanimous in its favor. It directed City Clerk Madge Ruark to conduct the election and named electors who have property in the city assessed for taxes, or the husband or wife of such elector as being eligible to vote. The election will receive more than the usual amount of publicity through what Mayor Willard Koch called an information campaign. The usual legal notices of election will be published prior to May 9. Mayor Koch said that the engineering firm employed by the city would assist in preparing articles for The Sentinel which will explain the need for the proposed improvements and exactly what was to be accomplished by the projects. City Attorney Harold B. Hughes said Wednesday that no proposition was included on the May 9 ballot for the levy of specified millage to repay the debt because the general obligation bonds provided for were to be retired from ordinary revenue obtained from taxes and fees on property owners and users of city sewer and water services. Application for federal funds to use in the projects has already been made and notice of whether such funds have been granted may be expected after passage of the proposals at the local election. Hughes explained that if the proposals are approved on May 9, and then the city is denied federal money, then the projects would be halted until new applications or other means were successful in obtaining aid funds. -f '.

Huntley of Harrison, veteran member of the Clare County Board of Supervisors was elected Tuesday as chairman of that Board for the next year. He takes over the office from Clinton R. Case of Eight Point Lake, the Garfield supervisor. Named to succeed himself as chairman pro-tem is John Brubaker of Arthur township. Huntley's election was an early order of business in the opening of the April Session in the courthouse in Harrison. The new chairman took immediate charge in presiding over the session and will announce committee appointments later this week. The new chairman has been a member of the Board for 15 years divided into an eight - year stretch, and. more recently the present terms of membership which number seven years. He represents the third ward in Harrison. He takes pride in having held a variety of assignments as a supervisor and circumstances will likely bring him the honor of calling the first session to order in new quarters when the county building is completed in time for the December session. This could be viewed as appropriate since he has headed the county building committee for two years with the primary assignment of developing plans and financing for the new county building. The county building is supposed to be ready for occupancy by October 23, but guesses about the actual date of moving in are varying from November 1 to 15. In other government experience at Harrison Huntley has headed, or been a member of nearly every important committee of the Board. He re calls that some 27 years ago, he was with the late John W. Dunlop, then mayor of Clare and a member of the county supervisors, set up the first organized County Welfare Department that has since grown into the number one place in the county budget and one of the most important departments. The new chairman announced his committee appointments Wednesday morning and following is the list for 1966-67. First named on each committee is its chairman. WAYS & MEANS Clinton Case STUART HUNTLEY CHARGE TO BE MODEST Child Clinic Adopts New Fee System The Central Michigan Child Guidance Clinic has begun a system of fee charging which became effective April 1, 1966. At its last regular meeting the Board of Directors of the Clinic voted unanimously to adopt the fee program which had been the subject of study for .^any months. The fee system has two major aims; (1) To give clients of the Clinic an opportunity to make personal contributions: and (2) To provide an additional source of Clinic revenue. It is not anticipated that the fee system will be a major source of revenue. The fees have been carefully set at moderate levels and are designed to reflect the family's ability to pay. The system takes into account the factors of gross family income and the size of the family. Fees are expected to be quite modest in most cases and the subject of fees will be discussed thoroughly with each family during the first Clinic appointment In its statement of philosophy regarding fees the Board of Directors emphasized that no one would be refused Clinic service because of inability to pay- fees. The fees are not intended to cover the actual cost of Clinic service. They are simply a way of adding to the Clinic financial base by giving clients an opportunity to make direct contributions. The major sources of Clinic revenue will continue to be the State Department of Mental Health, County Boards of Supervisors, County and local Boards of Education, and United Funds.

The Board approved the proposed 1966-67 school budget to be filed with the County Allocation Board later this month. In other action relating to financial matters repay- men of bonds totaling $27,548, including interest and principal, was approved. Richard Snyder, superintendent, reviewed procedures to be followed in the case of either a "tornado watch", or "tornado warning". He emphasized the fact that in either case children will not normally be sent home before the usual dismissal time. If a "tornado warning" is issued in the area, students are to be moved to predesignated parts of the school buildings offering greatest protection and are to be kept there under teacher' s supervision until the immediate danger is past. New TORNADO warnings have been approved by authorities of Clare and C-D. Printed on page B-l of this Sentinel, they are for you to clip and post at home. Calls to the police department during tornado conditions are NOT advised. A teaching contract for Micheal Tate of Clarkston, Michigan, was signed for the 1966-67 school year.

Bicknell will advise t h e candidate on matters of finance and taxation. Pest Control Tate will graduate from Central Michigan University this June and will teach either in the intermediate grades, or in the Junior High School. It was also announced that the District Health Department will conduct vision and hearing testing for three and four year old children in the Clare area. The-tests will be free and will take place in the elementary school. Parents of children in this age group will be sent letters offering this service as soon as final arrangements can be made. Royce Cole Gets 1966 Williams Here For Disfriof 0 Dem Rally G. Mennen Williams, in Clare Monday evening for a meeting and rally of Democrats of the 36th Senatorial District, smilingly accepted the greetings of 95 who attended a dinner at the Doherty, and accepted also the unanimous endorsement of his candidacy for U.S. Senator from Michigan. He is former governor of this state and recently resigned as under secretary of state for African affairs. A delegation of well- wishers met Williams when he landed at the Clare Municipal airport at about 6:15 Monday and they formed a motorcade to escort him downtown. Fifteen counties were represented at the dinner where he was received by the crowd. His remarks were on present day Africa, and about the Peace Corps. Endorsement was also given John Wilberding of Shepherd, candidate in the Democratic primary for State Senator from the 36th District. Come Home Parakeet "K" Award Royce Cole, Clare High senior and son of Mr. and Mrs. Basil Cole became the 31st athlete to w i n the Kiwanis Award when the 1966 announcement was ROYCE OOLE made Wednesday last week at the annual banquet. Members of the club together with many guests, CHS athletic letter winners and parents of the senior team members were in the audience that enjoyed the after-dinner program and the surprise announcement. History of the award goes back to 1936 and has been an annual affair since. Names of many outstanding and popular athletes are on the plaque in the school trophy case. Cole's school record shows that he earned letters in football, basketball and track in his sophomore junior and senior years and two JV letters as a freshman. He has an above-average scholastic rating and is president of his graduating class. Besides this he is a member of the Varsity Club Latin Glub, a dance band, and belongs to the Individual Sports Club. After graduation he will attend Michigan State where he plans to major in business administration. A little blue parakeet that left his owner, Mrs. Ella Mead and ran away from home Tuesday has probably repented by this time and would like to find his way back. You could help if you see the bird and notify Mrs. Mead. "George" is very tame and is normally allowed the run of a room at 206 Mark- ley St. in.Vernon City where Mrs. Mead lives with her mother. Tuesday he became excited when children were playing, and flew into a stove-pipe hole, -up the chimney and out! Mrs. Mead said that George talks some, will hop on your shoulder but doesn't like to be picked up, -and by now is probably pretty hungry and chilled. He may be in the neighborhood if wild birds haven't led him a-stray. If any bird watchers should see George they can call his owner at 386-9880.
