Clar Sentinel Ton Cents Copy Sixteen Pages Clare, Michigan Thursday, April 28, 196S Eighty-seventh Year New Series Vol. 74, No. 34* Awards, Honors Go To County 4-Hers Months of winter work by 4-H'ers on their projects were rewarded Saturday when club members from Clare county exhibited at the Spring Achievement held in Harrison. Long lists of prize winners testified to the excellence of handicraft projects ranging from style apparel creations to woodworking, and from electronics to leathercraft. Many adults took parts in the program of awards and citations and to praise the project workers for their accomplishments. Entertainment spiced the affair, too, when a singing group from Clare High was presented \_th their accompanist Jim Whitford of Clare, and a vocal trio from the Farwell Nimble Fingers club sang with Mrs. Cook accompanying. s School Bands Busy; Concert Here Tonight All three of Clare's Bands have been active during the past two weeks, two of them at State festivals and the third in a student assembly program. On Thursday, April 28, the 75 piece Junior Band will present its Spring Concert in the High School Gym at 8:00 p.m. While they will play a few numbers of a formal nature, most of the concert will be on the light side. _j Features will include a sight reading demonstration and an appearance of the corp of majorettes. On April 16, the Junior Band performed in the Class D section of the State Festival at Freeland High School. This large and relatively inexperienced group did a good job in getting a second division rating, considered better than average but not quite up to top quality. One week later, on April 23, the Symphonic Band performed in a class B (Sr. High) section of the State Festival at C\io High School. They received a ***' disappointing third division rating, considered to be just average. "A number of causes can be given for this lowered rating Director Lloyd Conley commented, "but the fact remains that the band obviously did not perform as well as in the past. These causes and some possible remedies will be considered for another year". On April 19 the Reserve Band performed in a student assembly, along with the High School Chorus under the direction of Mrs. *" Meek. These two groups offered a variety of light music for the student body as a part of the regular State Divides School Funds Public schools in Clare county received $6,680. and parochial schools $179. in a split up of funds for libraries and instructional materials under Congress' Elementary and Secondary Education Act. In Isabella the amounts were $11,214. and $2,603. The funds were distributed by the State Dept. ""of Public Instruction on a basis of per capita and need. Will Rain Spoil Trout Opener? Unless the weather betrays them in the next few days, trout fishermen should find stream conditions normal to better than ^average in northern Michigan when their regular 1966 season debuts April 30. Brightest opening day prospects are in the northern Lower Peninsula where Conservation Department fisheries men report that things shape up as the best in a number of years. In this region, where the spring runoff is over, stream levels are still fairly high but stable and clear, which bodes well for next Saturday's turnout of anglers* If the warming trend continues, temperatures of these waters should be higher than normal. This ".^..should make trout more active and striking better than they usually do at the outset of the spring season. weekly activity period program. Band activities during the remainder of the school year include a trip to the Massed Band Festival at Big Rapids on May? 4 (Reserve Band), ,a combined concert by the Tawas and Clare (Symphonic) Bands on May 14, the Little League Parade on May 15 (Junior Band), the# Memorial Day Parade on May 30 (Symphonic and Reserve Bands), and finally, the appearance at Commencement exercises on June 10.

Irwin C. Sweet, M.D. director of District 7 said, "each year many thousands of children in Michigan develop a hearing loss which will affect the child, or perhaps become a handicap later. "One purpose of this screening is to detect a loss of hearing early enough for it to be corrected before permanent damage can result." Mrs. Elinore Koch will do the vision screening, and Mrs. Merle White will do the hearing screening. Both technicians have received special training for this work. Another aim of this program is to prevent "one- eyed blindness". A child sometimes learns to see with one eye only. Vision in the other eye does not develop because that eye Is not used. By the time these youngsters enter school it is often too late to treat this condition, and permanent blindness in one eye results Continued on Page A-8 Showing their winning creations in leathercraft are (from ■right): Elaine Russell from Lake, Debra Fletcher from Far- .well and Ronnie Russell from Lake.
