Check Your Exhaust System

Because of the number of deaths that have occurred, car drivers and passengers are again being reminded by the State Police that fresh air from open windows while driving or parked is a "must" protection against the killing carbon monoxide gas contained in car exhaust.

Already this year the gas is reported as the cause of the deaths of at least 35 person who were sitting in parked cars with windows closed and engines running. State health department records show that gas claimed the lives of 49 persons in stopped motor vehicles last year in Michigan.

Nine deaths this fall including five members of one family making a roadside stop, a couple watching a drive in movie, and another couple sitting in a parked car.

State Police point out that the gas can do its lethal damage unsuspectingly because it is odorless and colorless. Drowsiness is one of the first symptoms which may be but is not necessarily followed or accompanied by ill feeling, nausea and vomiting.

Precautions against the hazard are: having the car’s exhaust system inspected for winter driving; properly ventilating the car at all times, whether driving or parked; checking the car’s firewall, passenger compartment and trunk area for rust holes or other leaks through which fumes may seep; by not running the car’s engine in a closed garage; and finally by not running the engine when sitting for any length of time in a parked vehicle.

Television Important at School

Educational television (ETV) plays an important part in implementing the social science curriculum at Kingston High School. Both United States history and government classes take advantage of this modern educational tool.

Lessons are telecasted by the Central Michigan Educational Television Council which is housed on the campus of Central Michigan University, Mount Pleasant. The lessons are aired over commercial television stations.

United States history is telecast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:00 a.m. over WJRT, Channel 12, Flint. Both history classes meet as a single group on these days for a general classroom lecture and the television lesson. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the classes meet separately for questions and discussion, and testing.

One of the two government classes uses ETV in the classroom on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Lessons are aired over WNEM-TV, Channel 6, Bay City, Saginaw. The remainder of the time is spent in reports, discussion and testing.

Economics will be taught in place of Government during the second semester. It will also be televised.

Television teachers are Mr. Lloyd Clark for United States history and Mr. Les Morford for government and economics.

Gov. Proclaims Leader Dog Week

Leader Dogs provide blind persons from all sections of the United States with a new independence. This humanitarian assistance has given the blind the ability and the courage to successfully continue their professions and vocations.

Blind people are able to minimize the handicap to the extent they can go anywhere – at any time – without fear with a Leader Dog. This capacity to travel permits many men and women to assume their rightful role in society.

Michigan is proud of the work being done by the Leader Dogs for the Blind, a non-profit corporation. In order to acquaint the people of Michigan, and the nation, with the important Leader Dog program, supported entirely by voluntary contributions from the Michigan United Fund Lions Clubs, other organizations and individuals, a week is set aside each year during which this outstanding and nationally recognized service agency is rightfully saluted.

THEREFORE, I, George Romney, Governor of the State of Michigan, do hereby proclaim the period from November 29th through December 5, 1964, as LEADER DOG WEEK in Michigan, and call the attention of our citizens to the important program of Leader Dogs for the Blind in helping blind persons overcome their handicap to enjoy a life of independence.

Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State of Michigan this twenty-second day of October in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred sixty-four and of the Commonwealth on hundred twenty-eight.

George Romney, Governor

7th Grade Shows Writing Talent

Last week the English 7 class was given the assignment of writing about a place they would like to visit. The papers were very good and the students wished to visit a wide variety of places, such as the moon, Washington D.C., England, Hollywood, Florida, and California.

Scott Fritz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Fritz of Clifford, choose to write his in the form of a poem which I felt was very good and your reader might like to read. It is a pleasure for a teacher to find a student now and then that does things that are out of the ordinary.

Yellowstone, oh, Yellowstone

Where the bears do roam.

With Old Faithful, the gyser

Who could be a miser.

The Rockies so high

All covered with snow.

Oh wouldn’t it be wonderful

If I could go.

The trees that tower so high

They make me sigh, "oh my."

I like to listen

To the birds that sing,

Of many, many, merry thing.

I like to breathe

The open air

Oh, I sure would

Like to go there.

By Scott Fritz.
