Ten Cents The Fourteen Pages Clare Michigan, Thursday October 17, 1968 91st Year Sentinel "Sayings" Make it a habit to keep your feet on the ground and you'll never have far to fall. New Series, Vol. No. 77 No, 7 Union Vote Will Be He End D»i-sis laaco of Clar*. took two Evart iack- l&ss with him after completion of one of the Pioneer passes last week. Clare won 20-0, with laaco scoring the first touchdown. Now the Pioneer eyes are on Farwell this week. Guys and Dolls photo are Blanks Evart, Eyes Farwell One of the closest games the Clare Pioneer football team has to a true "grudge match" is on tap for Friday night when 'Clare hosts _?_r*el_ at the local'field: Coach Gary Rayburn is keeping a wary eye on Far- well, despite last week's convincing 20-0 Pioneer victory over Evart. "If any team is 'up' for us, it will be Farwell," commented Coach Rayburn. He has ordered a hard week of work for his charges in preparation for the Farwell match. Then there's the matter, in addition to the "grudge" aspects of the Farwell game, of the US-10 conference championship, currently held by the Pioneers on the basis of last year's 9-0 record. Clare has been defeated only once this year, that time by a power-packed Reed City club which has been bowling over conference foes with a heavy hand But if Reed City should stub its toe one of these nights, Rayburn wants to keep the Pioneers in position to take advantage of the relapse. After Farwell, Clare will close out its conference schedule against a tough Sanford-Meridian team on Oct. 25, then play Cheboygan before the finale against state-ranked Oscoda, which Rayburn sees as a real toughie. Despite the 20-0 victory over Evart, accompanied by clear superiority in the statisitcs department, the Pioneer Coach was not overly impressed with his team's performance last week. "In the third quarter, they played real sharp ball" he said of his charges. But he quickly noted several "mental errors" a- long the rest of the way to Clare's homecoming triumph over the Wildcats. Despite the coach's reservations, the homecoming crowd was happy as the Pioneers blasted the outgunned Evart invaders in every department. After a scoreless first period, Clare had to play over two fumbles to put together a 50-yard drive to paydirt to score the first Pioneer touchdown in the second period. The score .came on a pass from Grant Gillaspy to Dennis lacco Which covered" 20 yards. The kick for point was wide and Clare left the field at halftime with a 6-0 edge. The tnird quarter, however, saw Clare at its best. The Pioneers took the half- time kickoff and marched 65 yards straight dpWQJl... 'field "to score their second touchdown. With Evart using an eight-man line to contain the charging Pioneers, Gillaspy charged the final 10 yards right through the middle, and Dan White kicked the extra point to make it 13-0 Clare at the end of three periods. In the fourth period, defensive tackle Larry Ruby blazed through to block an Evart punt and set up Clare's third touchdown. With about two minutes gone ml. I he ..period, Gillaspy pranced around end for'the final 20 yards and into pay- dirt. White again added the kick to make the final mark •20-0 for Clare. Evart, meanwhile, managed to complete only one of nine pass attempts for a measly five yards, and ended up with a net ground gain of only 30 yards, although the Wildcats racked up seven first downs. Just." two days after America* _ voters go to the polls Nov-. 5 to choose a president, more than 500 production employees at Holley Carburetor Company in Claire will vote on which of three employee organizations— or none at all — will be the collective bargaining agent with this city's largest single employer. Nov, 7 is the date set by the - National Labor Reflations Board for the recog-, nition election at Holley. Employees will face four choices to represent them: 1. United Mine Workers District 50. 2. United Auto Workers. 3. Clare Aircraft Division Employees Association, which has been bargaining agent at Holley since 1947. 4. No union or association at all. A two hour public hearing Monday followed by another two hours of round-the- table discussion both conducted by a hearing examiner for the NLRB, worked out the details for the Nov. 7 election. William Vorushke of Detroit, labor-management relations examiner for the NLRB, pointed out that the results of Monday's meetings would have to be approved by Jerome H.

The Clare Fire Department responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Monday to extinguish a fire at the home of the Harold Bennett family, 4635 Grass Lake Road. The Bennett family was not home at the time; the children were in school and the parents working. The alarm was given by daughter became aware of the area within the house that had been burned. A cry of anguish trailed behind her as she raced into tne house and up the stairway. The voice of her younger brother could be heard.

House said the sound of a falling window drew his attention to the fire. Fire Chief Jim Brinkerhoff and seven of his volunteers quickly extinguished the fire using water from the 750 gallon tank carried by the fire engine. The chief said- the fire was probably the result of faulty wiring in or near a record player in an upstairs bedroom. The fire was restricted to this one room although water damage was present in the upper hallway and tied dresses, skirts and Clare also won the statistical edge in fumbles, losing the ball only twice j?,,?0^. to three times for Evart. The Pioneers now stand 4-1 for the season, and 2-1 in US-10 Conference play.
