The Clare Pioneers' varsity squad met the Gladwin Flying G's Friday, September 12; the end results of which game were hardly satisfying to the Pioneers. Gladwin played the Pioneers across the field for a 22 to 8 victory.

Court Order Resumes Classes In Coleman _.i The 65 striking members of the Coleman Education Association went hack to school Monday, September 22 following the appearance in Circuit Court in Midland of the C. E. A. and the Coleman Board of Education on Thursday, September 18. In that court, Judge Rood sent the striking instructors back to school for at least 60 days, during which time he charged both parties to negotiate in good faith. The teachers announced on Wednesday, Sep- . tember 10 that beginning the next day they would With hold their services. The issue over which they were striking, according to Tom Saylor, CEA President and Nor- val Bovee, Coleman Superintendent of Schools, was the April 15 return date for individual contracts. The schools, according to Bovee, needed to know early in Spring which instructors would be returning the following Fall in order to plan hiring. The CEA charges that the early return date deprives them of bargaining power during master contract time. The CEA has also charged that the early return date is an unfair labor practice and has taken the matter to court. This charge will come up before the State Labor Mediation Board.in Isabella County on October 2. Following Judge Rood's decision that the instructors were to return to school, all 65 returned including six instructors whom the school board is suing for $10,000 each Sentinel Contest Brings Comments About Glare Interesting answers have been received at the Clare Sentinel concerning the contest "Name Clare's Leading Citizens."
