** entinel Tea Cenis Copy Twelve Pages Clare Michigan Thursday, June _fc 1967 Eighty-seventh Year New Series- Vol. 75. No. 43 in Thief Takes $75 Cash !«»-<V A Thursday nightrobbery in Clare at the Clark Drug store was discovered Friday by the owner, Charles Clark when he opened up in the morning. His cash registers had been stripped of $75. The money had been left there to be ready for change making, and the discovery started Sidewalk Sale Day on a sour-note for the store. Police guessed that the thief or thieves had allowed themselves to be locked in the store Thursday night by hiding inside at closing time. No force- able entry or exit evidence was discovered. State Police Detective James Mull and Clare Chief Elry Tice are investigating. Tice also said that three coin boxes had been stolen from pay telephones recently with the complaints being registered by the Michigan Bell Telephone Company. The boxes with their contents had been entirely removed from the locations and no estimate was given of the amount of the losses. Food Handlers Enforcement of a parking rule in city auto parking lots has begun again according to Clare Police Chief Elry Tice, and two- hour parking violations will be ticketed he said. Public parking in the lot on W. Fourth street and all the east side of the lot in the city park across from the police station on W. Fifth is affected. Signs in these lots remind the public that two hour packing is allowed and the facilities are primarily for the convenience of Clare shoppers. A reminder this week by District Seven Health Department is meant for all food handlers in public places, and their employers. Food handlers must have new, or current permits from the department. District Seven is responsible for the health program in Clare, Gladwin and Arenac counties. The procedure for. obtaining the permits is some what different than in the past and is described in the release. Workers who handle food or come in contact with food service must be free from Tuberculosis and certain infections. The card they must have will show that tests are negative for T.B. and certain other required tests also show negative. Private physicians or the Health Dept. can administer the tests and more information may be obtained from the Health office, phone 539-5111. Reading Help Taught Again This Summer Clare Public Schools; are in their second summer schedule for those students who are reading and comprehending below the level of their classes. This year's enrollment is 146 children in grades 2 through the 8th, in comparison to 110 students in the program a year ago. Miss Cella Gartrell, C. M.U. is reading instructor, working mornings with teachers in their classrooms and with individual students who have severe reading problems, and she also does individual testing. In the afternoons, Miss Gartrell conducts a read-' ing workshop for the teachers on methods and techniques of teaching reading to children who are having reading difficulties. Mrs. Ruth Schunk, director, states that this intensified and individualized reading program will help the children to keep up with their classmates, and further enable them to continue in schooling and not drop out. Small class size combined with ability grouping is one of the best ways to aid this program. Reading machines being used are; Language Master Tachist-O-Viewers, Overhead, Filmstrip, and Opaque Projectors, tape recorders and reading accelerators. New materials used this year are Thomas Nelson reading series, S.R.A. Reading and Spelling laboratories, programmed learning, visual tracking, Barnell, Loft Ltd Specific Skill series, and McCall- Crabb lesson booklets. Four special events have been planned for the students. On Friday June 30, the Whiteskin Dancers of Coleman will present a program in the school auditorium; Robert Hayes, Magician will entertain on Friday, July 21; a trip to Interlochen Music Academy Turn to Page A-8 This pike, a 6-pounder and. 31 .inches long was such a fighter that it took a "committee" to bring it in Monday morning below Shamrock dam. The lucky anglers were Dale Moser, 14, on left who hooked the fish and Jim Burdo, 13, who netted, it at the end of a 12-minute struggle. Dale is the son of Mrs. Jennie Moser and Jim's folks are the Dan Burdos. Early Tuesday morning Dale was back at the Sentinel office with another pair of beauties, one pike 29% inches long and the other 22. The fish were taken on light spincasting rigs. Sentinel photo. Clare Golfer On Team Winning Best Ball Here In Twin Elms' fifth annual Best Ball Tourney played Saturday and Sunday here, only seven Clare golfers finished in the money but at least three of them Were bunched pretty well up among the leaders and Jim Gouts playing out of Clare was one of the first-place twosome. Gouts' partner, Washburn was from Midland and they turned in a 135 score, 13 strokes under par for the 72-hole tournament. In fourth place in the championship flight, nine under par were Gary Rayburn and Tom Cain, both of Clare. Cain is Twin Elms Glub champion. Russ Foell and Bill Case finished with 156 to place fourth in the second flight and E.A. (Bud) Anderson with Dick Ulrich placed eighth in the second flight. More area golfers in the second flight were Don and Al Luce from Farwell who carded 155 and Wayne Bucholtz with J. Robbins, and T. Allen with G. Oberlander who tied with 161. They were both twosomes from Harrison. Tournament entries numbered 132 and they were from Midland, Mt. Pleasant, Bay City, E. Lansing, Flint, Grand Rapids and other parts of the state. A Bay City player, Bill Ott scored an ace on Twin Elms' 160-yard eighth hole JBfe and his partner, also from Bay City carded evert par to take first place in the first flight. a Live Own Lives", Teens Are Advised Teen-age 4-H'ers were told last week at MSU to think for themselves rather than "go with the crowd". Following a theme of "Teen Citizenship' during the 49th annual 4-H Club Week, more than 1,200 teen-agers from all over Michigan heard Dr. Owen Morgan and Morley Fraser among other speakers. Dr. Morgan, Director of the Skillman Center Program at the Merrill-Palmer Institute in Detroit, said teens must have the courage to challenge the "They" concept, and live their own lives. Many of the teen-agers, who planned the program themselves, brought their parents for the final sessions. Dr. Morgan said teens must learn to take over their own lives, and live them • responsibly, "basically on their own steam". This must be done in a responsive way, Dr. Morgan said. "Too many people sit around, waiting for someone else to give them their life, and fulfillment for that life." He and Morley Fraser, head football coach at Albion College, challenged teens and parents to make their own decisions based on what is right for them, and not influenced by others Challenging the concept of "They" —thatvague,undefined force of "everyone else", is essential to becoming an individual and living one's own life in this mass society, -Dr. Morgan said. Fraser discussed the parents' role in making mature, responsibly citizens of their teen-agers. Fraser said parents also have a responsibility not to follow the crowd. Parents that always say "yes" because other parents do, don't really love their children. "Right now 'NO' Is the most important word in the finglish language, but many parents don t know how to Use it,. Fraser said. _„ ^ * '_„y _ Bang-up Celebiration Planned For The 4th The bright glare and spectacle of rockets and star- bursts over Shamrock Lake will again entertain crowds here as the Clare Business and Professional Women's club sponsors the annual fireworks display July 3. Mark Monday, the 3rd at 10 o'clock as the time to watch the Independence Day observance. The display, drawing increasing crowds each year, is made possible by the BPW which organizes the spectacle, and business people and other clubs and groups that contribute to buy the "bangs and flashes". Hundreds of dollars worth of showy fireworks will entertain watchers. BEAVERTON HOMECOMING : Beaverton will host crowds for a four-day celebration of the Four .h beginning Friday evening (tomorrow), and lasting through July "4. It is the 21st annual replay of the Beaverton event and games, parades, contests and shows feature the program. Boat racing on Ross Lake will be on July 4. A complete program is in an advertisement on page A-4 of today's Sentinel. Stanleys Take Lead In L. League Shuffle A sky full of beautiful color and noise like this above will entertain watching crowds around the shore of Shamrock Lake Monday evening in the town's observance of Indepenence Day. Details of this event and others in the area July 4 doings are in a story on this page. Don't Excite Stinging Pests Stinging insects, -darn the pests, are probably at their height at this point in the season and a story earlier this month in The Sentinel warned that allergic reactions to poison stings might be serious and might kill as many as 300 children and adults this summer. Quoting Dr William Solomon, allergist at the University of Michigan, the story listed wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, and the common honey bee as the most dangerous and painful. The expert warned that a person extremely allergic to insect venom could possibly die in just ten minutes from the sting of a single bee. This should be enough to make us want to find out if we are one of those with extra sensitive reactions. This is a good idea and fine, but also other measures to avoid or counteract the danger are worth while. "Take shots," the doctor advises or "try to avoid being bitten or stung.' Some pretty good common sense hints are offered in this article which might set our minds a little more at ease about insect troubles. One bit of advice may confuse girls in skirts when they read that full, billowing costumes may trap stinging insects and add to the chances of stings, while they can figure out for themselves that popular mini skirts are bound to expose more target for the flying enemy. What's a girl to do? Dr. Solomon explains in a more serious vein that, although the severity of insect allergies has only been realized in recent years, he said, such reactions are not new. "Hieroglyphics record the death of a pharoah after a single wasp sting. Bites of spiders and deer flies have rarely been reported as severe or allergy-producing." Most victims are warned. Previous .stings cause vast swelling, tightness in the throat or chest, hives, asthmatic breathing or lightheadedness. Such allergic reactions grow more severe with repeated ex- Vacation Next Week At Sentinel The annual vacation issue of The Sentinel, printed early and to be mailed so- it will reach you on July 6, took some printing schedule changes and deadline reshuffling. It's all for the sake of a week off for Sentinel staffers who will take their vacations during the week and be back on the job Monday, July 10. News and want-ad copy is being taken up to 10 a.m. tomorrow for the July 6 issue. Now, -telephones off the hook everyone? Picnic baskets and golf clubs all ready to go? We'll see you all when vacation's over. Church Hour Summer schedule for the First Congregational Church (United Church of Christ) will begin this Sunday July 2nd. Morning worship service will be at 9:30 a.m. and the Sunday School will vacation during the months of July and August. Antlerless Deer Take posure. "These symptoms should be clear-cut danger signals' . No adequate tests are yet available to warn those persons potentially allergic to insect stings. "Many reactions occur in persons without other allergies. Although most severe reactions will not end in death,' he added, "any allergic symptom following a sting indicates treatment is needed. "Preventive desensitizing injections of whole body insect extract are over 90 per cent effective in reducing allergy to stinging insects." Weekly injections at the U-M Allergy clinic are started long before the summer season and continue into the cooler fall months. Shots are then reduced to aboil one injection every four weeks. It is interesting to note, said Dr. Solomon, that shots available for pollen allergy in hayfever or asthma may be only 70-80 per cent effective by comparison. The U-M allergist also recommends that children and adults known to react strongly when stung by insects should carry prescribed medications in a locket or pill box. "If swallowed seconds after a sting, these pills could be life-saving, reduce swelling and aid breathing.' Other instructions to avoid being stung include: —.Don't use hair tonic, after-shave lotion, hair spray deodorant or perfume if you are going outdoors. Floral odors especially attract bees and wasps. —Brown, black, dark red and floral prints excite insects more than white. —Loose fitting clothes such as head scarves and billowing skirts may trap the insect. —Never go barefoot or wear sandals outdoors. Bees especially like clover; yellow Turn to Page A-8 Planned 30% Higher interlochen Tentative plans for a firearm harvest of 48,535 antlerless deer in Michigan this fall were previewed before the Conservation Commission during its June 15-16 meeting in Lansing. The Conservation Department's preliminary recommendations, endorsed by seven of eight Bis Brothers Organizing Interested people in the county, especially men were invited to a meeting last night at Clare City Hall to help organize a chapter of Big Brothers of America. An organizing group is being led by Roger DePue, former chief of Clare police, Bill Delong and Bill Corner, all of Clare. citizens' advisory committees on deer, call for a 30-percent increase over the 1966 antlerless quota of 37,366 . They are subject to further adjustments before being brought back to the Commission for final action July 13-14 at the Higgins Lake Conservation School. Several factors support the Department's liberalized antlerless deer quota: Field checks show a good, fawn crop potential for this year which is down only slightly in the Upper Peninsula and at least as high as a year ago in the Lower Peninsula. Highway deer-car accidents also point to a good sized herd. For the first four months of 1967* they are up three Turn to Page A-8 Camp Opens The first of eight Sunday night Symphony Under the Stars concerts .will highlight the first weekend of the National Music Camp s 40th concert season.

The StanleyOil team rose to the top of the Little League standings as of June 23 after things settled following a week of stirring and boiling activity in the race.. The week's play was highlighted by a pitchers' duel on June, ^21 between Alan West and'Norm Scu-- merher where, only one run was scored in-the game and the two pitchers between them struck out 21 batters. Stanley Oil started its climb on- Monday June 19 with an 8-6 decision over Bryant ■Mobil and Mike Rogers got credit for pitching the victory.

Citizens Bank won its second game of the week on Thursday when it overpowered Bryant's 8-5 be- hing Tim Cuisen' s pitching. And Stanley Oil leaped into first place in the standing s on Friday with a 9-0 route of Alexander's.

On the Don Dalton estate farm Tuesday, workmen were leveling some knolls with a 'dozer when they discovered solid ice a few feet under the topsail.- It had lain insulated under the shaded surface. Ervin Arts, a neighbor brought a football-size chunk of the ice into the Sentinel Office Tuesday where he proved that climate is not always the way it appears, "on the surface". City of Clare sanitation worker s were busy last week on curbside trash pickup routes handing out samples of plastic* garbage can liners. The big bags were given with the city's compliments and the advice that their use would make garbage disposal easier for householders and the city crews alike. The liner bags are for sale by the city and will make garbage cans "last longer by preventing rust, and in the winter season preventing freezing of contents to the inside of cans. Anyone who hasn't used plastic liners _ can get a trial supply by ordering at city hall. Price, five cents each. To Improve Signal At 10 and M-115 Oversize flasher signal lights will be installed soon at the intersection of US-10 and M-115 near Farwell, the State Highway Commission reported this week. The present flasher signals for eastbound traffic at the "V' intersection will both be replaced with new, brighter 12-inch signals. The standard eight- inch flasher southeast of the intersection for westbound traffic will continue in operation. The larger signals will be equipped with special pinpoint type' lens, visible only in the traffic lane they are intended to regulate but at a much greater distance than the old type lens. Dimmer switches willbe installed on the new lights to prevent drivers from being "blinded" by the bright light at night. Better signal visibility, the lenses are two and one half times larger than the smaller signals, and more advanced warning are aimed at reducing accidents at the intersection. The change is expected to be completed Within the next 30 days and the cost will be financed entirely with state funds.
