Named on the recall petitions were Dale
Emerson, supervisor; Donna Syverson,
clerk; Jack Kzeski, trustee and Eileen Corr,
trustee.
Apparent motivation for the petition drive
was the firing of township police chief Bruce
Angell about 3 months ago.
Angell and township residents at the time
protested the dismissal and it was then there
was talk of petitions being circulated for
recall.
However, included also on the recall
petitions is a protest over sewer rate adjustments.
THE PETITIONS stated as reasons for a
recall election, "an arbitrary, improper
adjustment of sewer use rates within the
township and arbitrarily and without cause
discharged the police chief of DeWitt Twp
and failed to maintain the proper communications with residents of DeWitt Twp.
Emerson said the board as a whole, since
the 1972 election had not changed sewer
rates and the only person holding office
(named in the petitions) when the rates
were adjusted from $9.50 to $10.50 monthly
was Syverson.
An election date is expected to be set
within 30 days.
Not named in the petitions were trustees
Roger Pline and. Bill Purves and treasurer
Oliver Angell.

BATH TWP--It's finally happened,
After months and months'of "off again, on
again" actions concerning the proposed
Bath Twp sewer, construction finally got \
underway this week.
The sewer project suffered numerous set
backs including lack of sufficient votes on
the board, then an injunction after the issue
passed because of a petition protesting the
amount of bonded indebtedness and other
stumbling blocks along the way.
A vote bv the board last year failed to
have the sufficient number of "yes" votes,
due partly to the fact that some, wanted to
wait until a decision would be made about
t federal funding assistance..
However, it became evident no federal
Xunding would be available and the board
then irjoved to cons.tr.uct the^sewer^ and
maintain funds from the state.
Since that time, court action by protesting
residents of the township sought to halt
construction.
However, those actions were unsuccessful
and the sewer is on the way.

Another beating
REP DOUGLAS TREZISE
87th District
A proposal to refund $22.50 to
every person who paid the $45
uninsured motorist fee last year
was one of the most debated
bills in the House of
Representatives last week.
Considering the fact that we
now have "No-Fault" insurance
and every car must be insured ••
- by law — as of October 1,1973,
this proposal would seem to be a
fair one.
Yet.v it could result in a
situation where the big majority
of Michigan's taxpayers, those
who have carried automobile
insurance regularly, will end up
paying the bills for the accidents involving those people
who carried nb insurance at all.
.To explain that statement we
have to go Back to- the beginning.
/in 1966 an act was passed by
j^rie Legislature requiring that
"^persons wishing to register
automobiles in Michigan must
show proof of insurance to cover
their liability to others who
might be injured in an auto
accident. It alsoi provided that,
in lieu of this insurance, a
person could pay into a
state; opera ted fund, a specified
sum which would be put into a
pool to pay claims of those
people who suffered losses in
accidents involving people who
did not carry insurance. In
addition, for the first six years,
insured drivers also paid $1 per
year into this fund to assure
there would be funds enough to
meet the claims arising from
accidents of the uninsured
motorist.
Unfortunately, many people
got the notion they were buying
"state insurance" with the
payment of the Uninsured
Motorist Fee. It was not insurance. It was a fund created
for the protection of all other
drivers against losses 'as the
result of accidents involving
those uninsured drivers.
In fact, when a claim was
paid from the fund, it was the
responsibility of the state to try
to collect the amount of that
_ claim from the uninsured
motorist who was involved; but,
frankly, this aspect of the plan
never was very successful.
The logic behind the bill
which, faced us last week was
that, since uninsured motorists
werexequired to pay $45 into the
fund when they bought their
license plates this year and,
since insurance coverage'
became compulsory on October
1 with the "No-FaultH law six
months before new plates are
required, we should refund one
half of the $45 payment to those
who paid into the fund. It seems
logical enough.

Motorist Fund Is going to take
another beating.
Task Force offers ways
to conserve home fuel
LANSING - The Governor's Task Force
on Fuel Supply is offering through the news
media 21 ways to conserve fuel and money
in the home.
Of the 21,12 are listed as "things you can
do that don't cost money."
They are:
1. Turn down your thermostat 2 degrees s
every other day, until you find the least
temperature at which you can be comfortable.
{
(SEE PAGE 14A)
But, when you recognize the
purpose of the fund as it was
created, some of the logic
seems to fade away.
According to the Secretary of
State, who is charged with the
management of this money, the
total assets of the fund are
expected to reach slightly over
$67.6million during the next few
years as it is being phased out.
This includes interest on
present funds,
expected
repayments, and new fees paid
by motorcyclists who are not
covered by "No-Fault" insurance.
But the indication is that, if
the $22.50 refund is given to this
year's contributors the total
obligations of the fund will be
just about $70 million This
means that, to pay the refund
and
meet
anticipated
obligations, we will have to put
in more than $300,000 of general
tax money. And, that money
will have to come from the
pockets of the majority of the
people of Michigan who, in
addition to paying for insurance
all these years, paid $1 per year
into the fund themselves to
assure its solvency.
It seems to me we were
premature in authorizing this
refund. I would have no quarrel
with it if we were sure the
money would be available in the
fund itself; but, it will be
several years before we can be
certain of that. Unfortunately,
my colleagues didn't agree with
me and the bill passed the
House and went on to the
Senate.
It is my feeling that, unless
more fiscal responsibility
prevails in that body, the
average guy who paid for his
insurance and paid his annual
~ dollar, into the Uninsured

You can help yourself avoid
costly mistakes in the amount
of auto coverage you carry if
you talk over your needs with
your independent insurance
agent. Because-as many people discover too /afe-all policies do not cover all risks. And
the attitudes of different companies toward claim payments
vary quite widely.
As an independent agent, we
represent several insurancecompanies. This means we can
pick and choose among insurance companies lo find the
one that provides the best coverage for you.
We have a free booklet, "How
To-Avoid Costly Mistakes In
Auto Insurance," lhat is yours
for the asking. Jusl call or
write (or your copy. There's no
obligation.

THAT'S OUR WAY OF MEETING
THE ENERGY CRISES
As everyone else in the country has done, we at CNB&T have made some adjustments
in our policies to conserve energy. Throughout all eleven/locations, thermostats have
been turned down and lighting has been cut in buildings and parking areas. Bank vehicles
have been assigned top speeds of fifty miles per hour and employees in every capacity
are joining in efforts to use more efficiently the power at our disposal.
And how does soft music and candlelight fit into all this?
Well, you might say we're looking at the dim side to brighten the dark. It's our way of
making the inconveniences of the times a little more acceptable... Candlelight and soft
music soothes the spirit and this combination will be part of our service each Monday
and Friday between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. These are the times which exceed
normal banking hours and times when we feel conserving energy would be most effective.
It's our way of providing service along with a gentle reminder that we all must contribute toward energy conservation. We hope to make your contribution a little easier
by providing you a time to

t*<iKMiyat£cotumt( She Stow "
The Social Security Administration and the Michigan
Department of Social Services
are joining forces in an effort to
reach some 2,000 to 3,000
Lansing area residents who
may be eligible for a new
federal benefit program.
The program, called Supplemental Security Income, is
scheduled to get underway
January 1. It will be administered by the Social
Security Administration, and is
designed tq provide a basic
monthly payment to aged, blind
or disabled people living on a
limited income.
that some people eligible for the
new program may not have
heard about it.
One move to try to reach
some of these people is now
underway. A joint letter from
Social Services and Social
Security has gone out to the
Michigan residents who are
enrolled in the state's Medicaid
program but who do not qualify
''for a cash monthly payment
from Social Services.
• It appears that 20 to 25 percent of these people will be
eligible for the Supplement

Social Security Administration
will be able to disregard a

In the meantime Fowler was
taking 19 less shots, but they hit
on 27 of 60. At the free throw
line, the Eagles were only 3 for
14 while Webberville was 10 for
15. In the last quarter, Fowler
shooters missed 10 free throws,
6 of which would have been good
for bonus shots.

2. Turn down your thermostat at night and
during the day if everyone is away all day,
3. Close doors and turn off heat to unused
areas of home.
4. Close drapes and pull shades at night.
5. Change furnace filter at least once a
month to maintain efficiency.
6. Balance system by regulating heat
directed to each room (to eliminate a waste
of heat in "hot" areas of home).
7. Open shades and drapes on sunny days
8. Don't hold open outside doors for conversation.
9 Clear all obstructions away from
registers and grilles, such as drapes, rugs,
chairs, etc, which would restrict air
movement.
10. Close fireplace damper when not in
use.
11. Turn down thermostat when away for,
weekend or vacaUon.
12. Wear heavier clothing at home.
Things the Task Force suggests that will
cost money now, but will more than pay for
themselves later:
13. Have heating equipment checked,
cleaned and adjusted for top efficiency by a
qualified serviceman.
14. Add insulation in ceiling and walls.
15. Add storm windows and storm doors to
your home
1
16. Caulk cracks around window and door
frames, or any other small openings to the
outside.
17. Add a humidifier. Extra humidity
brings a feeling of warmth at a lower
temperature.
18. Add weather stripping around doors
and windows.
19. Insulate heating pipes or ducts where
they run through unheated attics or crawl
spaces.
20. Modernize old heating system by
replacement with newer, more efficient
equipment.
21. Add a clock-thermostat to adjust your
heat automatically.
The task force also offers some special
conservaUon practices for use in commercial and'public buildings.
--Turn down temperature in lobbies and
other public places.
-Schedule evening meetings into a single
heated zone of larger buildings.
-Operate ventilation to the outside on a
time schedule instead of continuously.
--Open blinds and drapes on sunny days.
-Install automatic door closers
--Control heat by zones and turn down heat
, to unused areas.
--Use partitions to isolate areas open to the
outside (shipping area with open doors, etc)

Michigan farmers are being
called on to produce more to
meet the ever increasing need
for food. Land that has been set
aside for conservation purposes
is being freed for production in
1974.
Now is the time for
"Production With Protection"
says Arthur H. Cratty, state
conservationist of the Soil
Conservation Service. "The use
of sound conservation practices
and 'the selection of the best
land for each crop will help
attain this goals."
Soil survey information can
be used to guide conservation
and production, Soil surveys

A recent report by the
American Cancer Society states
that almost 1.5 million living
Americans have been cured of
cancer, in that they are
"without evidence of cancer at
least 5 years after diagnosis and
treatment".
Oncologists, the kinds of
physicians who specialize in the
treatment of malignant tumors
and conditions, warn, however,
of a trend towards more cancer
deaths last year, which they see
continuing in 1974.
This is the most notable increase in 22 years, and it accounts for a total of 166 deaths
per 100,000 population, which is
the way health statistics are
usually compiled.
In 1971 there were 161 deaths
per 100,000, so that the increase
for last year has gope up 3'times
what the annual average was in
1950,
The most important 'thing
about ominous statistics like
those is, of course, what we can
learn from them which will
prevent unnecessary death by
cancer.
The experts blame mostof the
increase on greater exposure to
cancer-causing chemicals in the
environment. In a way the fight
against pollution may also turn
out to be a fight against the
dreaded disease.
How many new cases of
cancer will be diagnosed next
year?
REHMANN'S
OF ST. JOHNS
The prediction is that as
many as 1.3 million Americans
will undergo that difficult experience.
One other interesting trend is
that for the last quarter of a
century, cancer has claimed the
lives of more men than women
in the United States. For instance, in 1974 if is estimated
that for every 54 men who die of
cancer, only 46 women will
succumb.
The female decline on death
rates, apparent since 1936, is
due mainly to the fact that
cancer of the cervic (the
opening of the womb/ is easy to
detect with up to date medical
management.
On the other hand, the rise
among men is due mainly to an
astronomical 1,400 percent
increase in lung cancer, much
of it in tum related to cigarette
smoking.
,
Other common and curable if
detected ;in time, forms of
female cancer are breast,
uterus and lower digestive tract
malignancies.
for men, the most common
sites, outside of the lungs, which
account for 21 percent of all
cancers, are colon and/rectum
(15 percent), prostate (16
percent) and urinary (9 percent).
Again, the important thing to
remember is that early
diagnosis and treatment1
produce the best results.
Nobody should ever let fear of
cancer get in the way of a
prompt
and
complete
examination at the first sign of
trouble.

'\
}
continued snowmobile fun
Snowmobilers can best
guarantee their access this
winter to Michigan's 1,300 miles
of state forest trails and more
then 6.3 million acres of public
land by taking strong steps now
to voluntarily conserve fuel,
according to Automobile Club of
Michigan.
All snowmobilers should
follow Auto Club's urging that
motorists cut gas consumption
by 25 percent," said Joseph
Ratke, Auto Club touring
manager.
If a voluntary step like this
succeeds, it could head off more
drastic measures, such as steep
gas taxes or gas rationing,
which would severely restrict
travel to Michigan's outdoor
recreational spots," he said.
Auto Club commended the
Michigan
Marine
and
Snowmobile
Dealers
Association for their campaign
to encourage members and nonmembers alike to cut
snowmobile gas consumption
by 15 percent.
"rfowever, since statistics
show that snowmobiles use less
than one percent of Michigan's
gas supply, snowmobilers must
take additional steps to effectively help our state through
the energy crisis,"--Ratke said.
Auto Club points out that
snowmobilers can economize on
fuel while enjoying their sport
by storing their vehicles at
resort centers rather than
hauling them long distances.
Also, snowmobilers are urged to
supplement some long-distance
weekend trips by snowmobiling
close to home.

farm program rules
there was a reduction- in
payments in the amount of
$48,000 for such things as
deficient set-aside acreage,
acreage grazed or harvested,
lack of weed control or below
average land was designated.
Now, because there is no
surplus feed grain and wheat,
farms will not have to comply
with any requirements as in
1973 to earn payments.
Their only payments will be if
the market price for feed grain
and wheat drops below a
prescribed level' and the only
compliance requirement will
be, to earn history credit, the
farmer must certify to the.
acreage of wheat and feed grain
planted.
Many of the farms that
complied with the wheat and
feed grain program also
received additional compensation for allowing public
hunting which provides that the
land would be open at no charge
to hunters and would be
available in accordance with
the State game laws. Hunters
wishing to obtain lists of these
farms may contact their local
county ASCS office or the State
ASCS office, or their Regional
Department
of
Natural
Resources office.
