$ 5 million hike in the county's total equalized
valuation, during a regular board session.
The new equalized valuation for 1971
will stand at $159,802,009, a jump of

property and persona^property.

assessed an equalization factor, St. Johns
was given a 1.187 factor, a dip from last
year's 1.188 figure under real property.
Watertown Township was given a factor
of 1.046, a jump from the 1970 figure
of 1.038.
The factor for Bath Township was dropped
this year after some controversy in 1970
in whfch township officials expressed displeasure at the factor rate. They had been
assessed a 1.015 factor,
Clinton County's real property was valued
at $136,429,116 and personal property was
valued at $23,372,893.
DeWitt Township was valued the highest
set at 19.2976 percent of the total county
valuation. The township's total equalized
valuation was set at $30,837,950.
Next in line was St. Johns' with a figure
of $22,525,300 (assessed) and $25,526,182
(equalized). It was 15,9736 percent of the
total equalized valuation.

ST. JOHNS—"Young man, you are hereby sentenced to three days in jail to be
suspended upon completion of- three days
on the county work detail."
A number of young men have received
this type of sentence recently from District
Court Judge Roland Duguay, as a new
type of punishment for minor crimes committed in the county.
Judge Duguay thinks that this type of
sentence i s more productive and will
accomplish more than having a young man
spend the time sitting in jail.
*There is no guarantee that a person
will get the work detail instead of jail,"
he said. "It all depends on the type of
offense he has committed, whether it is
his first and the overall attitude of the
offender,"
After they are sentenced they must report
each morning to one of the county workers,
who will be their supervisor for the day.
The work detail consists of cleaning up
public works such as the court house
grounds, county parks, the juvenile home
and different cemeteries. "These are areas
that need extra work and so far they have
done an excellent job of cleaning them up",
he said.
MANY OF THE COUNTY employees have
volunteered extra time to supervise men
on the weekends and after work. Judge
Duguay has put in a number of hours as
supervisor on the weekend.
"I would like to expand this program.
Many of our young offenders shouldn't
be sent to jail, but need to be punished
and this, I believe, is the best way. If
we could get volunteers from the residents
of the county to help me with this pro-
to
gram we could greatly expand it," he said.
Judge Duguay said that not only does
this program save the county money, $10
to $15 a day for each man, but it is
accomplishing something worthwhile by
cleaning up neglected areas in the county.
The offender must report each day to
work. If they don't or goof offwhileworking,
they finish the rest of their sentence in
the county jail.
Judge Duguay said that if anyone is
interested in helping with the program
they should contact the District Court
or R.G. Becher, County* Building Superintendent.

Because of problems arising
from high property taxation the
Legislature enacted in 1932 the
so-called 15-mlll limitation act

government, t o w n s h i p s , and
schools split the 15 mills as
determined by a allocation board
in each county.
For some years the combination of allocated millage and
state aid was adequate to operate most schools in the state.
However, as the demands by people for better programs of education, more transportation, and
because^ of the increase in enrollment, t h e allocated t a x

Then, in 1965 the Legislature

During the past five years this
has resulted in improved salaries

which further aggravated thefinancial problem.
Although the situation varies
from district to district according to the State Equalized Valuation of the district, State Aid
and the property tax have a l most shared equally in furnishing funds to operate schools. As
the property taxes have been increased by local vote, State Aid

There seem to be several a l ternatives.
—The people of each district
need to assess their own schools
and then decide at election time
whether or not they wish to support for one year the program
they have had for the past years.
— If they don't wish to support the total program there
should be some agreement as to
what should be cut out of the
program.
"We have worked with all aspects of law enforcement. Last
week we held a mock trial and
went through the complete procedure. We have had many discussions on issues that are important to the s tu d e n ts,» Humphrey said. One of the Issues
was the older kids unfavorable

CLINTON COUNTY NEWS, St..Johns, Michigan
set
Ovid-El sle's Marauders look
to be the ones to beat again this
year in the annual Clinton County
News track meet scheduled for
Monday at the O-E oval.
The event, being resumed after
a two -year delay, will feature
teams from Ovid - Elsie, St.
Johns, DeWltt, Bath', Fowler and
Pewamo -Westphalia.
The preliminary events and
field events will start at 5 p.m.
Monday with the final running
events set for 6:30 p.m.
Here are some event-by-event
breakdowns on what could take
C C N track meet
place Monday.
Shot-put —The current record
of 49-8 1/2 could stand up, but
several county throwers could
reach the distance. The best bet
here would be Larry Sandborn
of DeWltt who has flipped the
weight 49-5 against Bath and494 against Ovid-Elsie earlier this
season. O-E's Dick Bates has
zeroed In on the 48-foot mark
this year and has shattered several school records with his
tosses.
LONG JUMP
This event's record of 20-81/2
will almost certainly be broken.
Keith Nelson of Ovid-Elsie has
established marks of 21-3 1/2.
21-2 1/2 and 20-9 this'season,
but Coach John Oberlln is worried.
"Keith has a hip pointer and
if he hurts, I won't use him,"
Oberlln said. That could leave the
door open for DeWltt seniqr John
Black who has had Jumps of more
than 20-feet.
"He's looking forward to the
meet," commented P a n t h e r
coach Evart Stevens. "Here lie
jumps off an asphalt board, but
he. likes the pit better; like they
have at Ovld-Elsle. He should
give them arunfor their money,*,
Bath's Dave Burleigh has'had
leaps of about 19-feet this year
and could stretch that marktobe
a gold medal contender.
P e w a m o - Westphalia's Mike
Thelen could be another contender who has averaged over 18feet and has had a leap of 19-6
in 1971 competition.
• around, Jim Bouts of DeWltt set
the record that year with a flight
of 11-10 1/2.
So far, O-E's Glen Benslnger
looks to be the closest to that
mark with a fine effort of 116. Others in the running to take
first place honors are Bath's
Brad Shalbly at 11-0 and Redwing Terry Ruppuhn wit h an
effort of 10-6.
880 RELAY
HIGH JUMP
The record here,is 5-9 and
this is another area where new
marks could be set, but few of
the competitors have been close
to that mark all' season. Marauder senior Cal woodard has
had jumps of 5-4 against St. Johns
and DeWitt, but best bet to shatter the mark would go to Bath's
Paul Stoll. He has had a fine
jump 5-8 against DeWltt earlier
In the season and could put the
record away for the Bees. St,
Johns Redwing Steve Mead has
also jumped 5-4 and could be a
facto r in1 the first three place
.finishers.
The Bees have depth in' this
event with 6-4 Fritz Ordlway
topping the 5-6 Jump* mark. They
also boast Don Parkey> 6-0 senior, who has also jumped to the
5-6 mark.
POLE'VAULT
Best time in the county meet
to date in this event was set in
1968 byDeWitt'steamwithatime
of 1:34.7.
The Ovid-Elsie entry of Gordy1
Baker, Dan Bowles, Keith Nelson
and Jim Stewart have run the
event in 1:35.9 and could put it
all together for a new record.
DeWitt's best time of 1:39.8
would be good enough for a second and possibly a first if OE's Nelson is sidelined during
the meet. DeWitt's team consists
of John Black, Jim Ashley, Randy
Pitts and Steve Tews.
In other events, St. Johns Rick
Flegel should be able to runaway
from- the pack in the two-mile
run. He already as set a mark
of 10:23 which would shatter the
meet record by about 27 seconds.
That mark, 10:58.8, was set in
1968.
Several of the teams, includThe pole vault mark estab- ing Pewamo-Westphalia, St.
lished in 1968 might be a little Johns and Bath have a number
t o u g h e r to crack this t i m e of sophomores and juniors on
Ovid-Elsie's Dick Bates, Keith Nelson and Cai Woodard.

them about a year away from

The coaches have all^ agreed
on one thing, however. The county

"The meet Is an opportunity
for six schools in the county

against bigger schools, but we
are pretty much rural. The meet
used to be with small schools
and it was a good thing,"
Two first year coaches have
expressed similar sentiments.
Evart Stevens of DeWltt said
he thinks it is a good idea to
hold a county event. MWe especially have a strong competition with Bath," he said inpromoting the meet.
He said he wants his team to

see whatposition they would work
at best, "We are pretty well
organized now, and we are getting better with each game,"
he said, "Most of the team is
made up of Juniors, so we should

Nobis who proposed the insurance coverage said that about 55 may be'interested

ST. JOHNS—In hopes of fostering more Interest In the activities of the Clinton County Soil
Conservation District, and to
promote soil and water conservation In Clinton County, the SCD
board of directors in the fall of
1963 invited the five F u t u r e
Farmer of America chapters in
the county high schools to choose
a representative to serve on a

The first officers were John
Kowatch of Pewamo-Westphalia
High School, Chairman; William
Harden of Elsie High School,
Vice-chairman; Terry Fickies
of Ovid High School, Secretary.
They plannedtomeet every month
when the regular District Board
met.
This first Board helped plan
the annual FFA Conservation Exhibit Contest that is now held
at every Annual Soil Conservation District meeting. They
helped at the annual meeting
and also helped : plan for the
first FFA Land Judging Contest
that was held in April of 1964.
The Junior Directors have
been generally responsible for
these activities ever since.
AT A JUNE BOARD meeting
in 1968, the District Directors
decided to enlarge the Junior
Board of Directors by asking the
4-H Clubs of the County t o
select four members to represent them on the board and they
asked each FHA Chapter to elect
a Junior Director. The Boy Scout
Council and Girl Scout Council
were alsottaskedJ,.to;select„j?jie £

Miller and other high school
teachers work with the students
on a one-to-one basis in areas
of remedial reading, trade skills,
job responsibilities and functions.
"Many of the students enrolled
in this program are potential
drop-outs or have disadvantages
which could hinder them from'
employment in the future. We

closely with individual conferences, talks with their parents
and meetings with the local buslnesses," he said.
By working closely with the
students, Miller can help the
students decide on their goals
and directions.. *We attempt to
place the students In areas of
their own choice. This has one
distinct advantage, they find out
what areas they are or are not
interested in."
Miller said that the coordinated
efforts of the school and business
give the student the chance to
learn responsibilities, pride and
the possibility of a future trade.
He said that 17 out of the
20 students in the program are
employed. "They hold a variety
of Jobs from machinist apprentice to grocery clerks. Not only
does this program give them
the chance to learn about business but also a chance to earn
money," he said.
When asked about the success
of the program, Miller stated,
"We are doing very well. Whenever you deal with a program
where the students are having
learning difficulties or are disadvantaged in any way, you are

Sacrificial lamb
Editorial
By Tl/U YOUNKMAN
We appear to have, a new sacrificial lamb in our midst
The lamb, who usually thinks
of himself, in more ferocious
terms, is being sent on a wild
goose chase throughout the Middle Eastern Arab nations, reportedly, to present some kind of
peace overtures.
The actions, while noble in
themselves, have come a bit too
late. For many years the United
States has been dealing in arms
wit h botli the Arab states and
Israel. This country had tried to
keep enough peace to get the oil
rights from the Arabs, and at
the same time, quell the paranoia
of Israel,* closed in by hostile
neighbors.
We've sent statesmen, official
notes and even troops into the
Middle East in the past 15 years
or so to ease the tensions ajld
insure the feeling that the Americans qnly wanted to see peace
in that part of the world.
Now, President Nixon has engaged in the same politics that
trapped so many other "foreign
minded" Presidents. Send an official of high rank into a troubled
area so that the folks back home
will think we're doing -something
about the situation.

Ever read the "Ugly American?* There seems to be asimilar plot brewing here.
There have been dozens of protests already from anti-American groups in these nations and
Rogers hasn't even departed yet
The fireworks will really begin
when he hits those airports.
Rocks, bottles, burning autos,
hangings-in effigy and possible
assassination attempts have been
part of the scene when any Western dignitaries arrive.
Several nations have been put
under martial law for the visit—
and others have betrun takine similar actions to forestall trouble.
But what will the visits accomplish. According to the President It will insure our goodwill
td these people. How can national
leaders of these states, riddled
i^ith domestiv strife, look favorably on a visit that could result in open civil war?
, The reason for the President's
fictions must be elsewhere. For
example, if these incidents do
occur—it would be a "real* justification to back Israel against
the Arabs. With the Russians
moving into Egypt by the thousands and the Egyptians giving
aid to Syria and Saudi Arab'ia
it Is obvious we will not win
friends and influence p e o p l e
there. We will succeed in enlarging the paranoia of Israeli
leaders causing a crush on Washington to come to their aid.
It could mean an international
force, including A m e r i c a n s ,

between Egypt and Israel. It could
mean a U.N, -Korea type "Police

Israel if hostilities erupt
It could ultimately mean another front for American sol- '
dlers to practice their art. With
Russians in Egypt, there would
be a chance of Americans vs.
Russians, and a playground for
World War HI.
At the very least, such a visit
to Arab lands will not endear
Americans to Arabs or Arabs to
Israelis or Israelis- to 'Americans. In short, the visits are
pointless.
We've stumbled along this path
before with the humble excuse
that we didn't quite knowliow to go
