Colorful window posters will be distributed to supporting firms, and it is urged that San Marino residents patronize merchants who are backing Grad Night.  Need Piano  Is there a player piano in your den that could be a part of the all-night festivities? Such an instrument has always been one of the highlights of the evening, however, the one that has been borrowed in the past has been sold.  Any person having a player piano to lend should contact either Mr. or Mrs. Jack Whitehead (796-3993), co-chairmen of the Girl's Gym Activities committee.  Mrs. Tolles Will  Take Gavel Monday  Mrs. E.

RHL Track  Finals  Tomorrow  San Marino will be well represented in the Rio Hondo League track finals, which gets under way at 5:30 p.m. Friday at La Canada High.  Titan sprinter Jamie Fleming led Titan qualifiers in Tuesday's prelims at LC, bolting to 10.3 and 23.2 victories in the 100 and 220, respectively, and turning in an all-time personal best in the long jump at 22-3 to qualify in three events.  Actually, Jamie's sprint times were slightly inferior to little Titan senior Burt Buser, who sped to 10.2 and 23.0 clockings in the Bee division. Burt's time in the 220 beat the league Bee standard of set by Bar.?  of Duarte la..t year. Both Buser and Fleming haye 10.0 efforts in the l6o this yedr, knotting the school record held by three previous Titans.  Dave Corti of SMHS joined Fleming by qualifying in the varsity 100 and 220, Dan Yocum qualified in the 180 low hurdles, aijid Ed Howe in the 440.  Nipped  In the long jump, Randy Fre-berg of San Marino broke the league record by three inches, but was nipped for best jump of the day by Curtis Bradley of Duarte, who sailed 22-11%. The old record was 22-8 set way back in 1959 by one of the greatest athletes in San Marino High history, Bob Sommers.  In addition to Freberg and Fleming, the Titans also qualified junior Courtney Miller in the long jump, the latter making his personal best of 21-1. This has been Courtney's first year of competition in the long jump.  Ben Brooks and Jim Nairne both cleared 5-10 to join five others from around the league in the high jump finals, and Bob Kaye and Stan Schultz made it to the finals in the shot put. Kaye muscled the iron ball 53-6 for the best effort of the day.  The Titans already have produced one league champion. He's Jeff Houtz, who cleared 5-6 to edge Bentz of Temple City in the Cee high jump finals held Tuesday.  Still Need $$$ For SM Float  Having last week surmounted the first major obstacle to entry of a float in the 1972 Rose Parade — receiving and accepting a bid from the Pasadena Tournament of Roses — San Marino is now nearly one-third of the way toward mastery of the second obstacle — raising the money to build the float.  Contributions in the form of advance gifts this week hiked the total funds contributed to $3,982. Donations came from Anne and George Wofford, Georgiana Geiler, Jack and Barbara Bradford, Robert Lelshman, A. B. Post, and Harold and Nettie Hollister.  It is estimated that something in the neighborhood of $12,000 will be necessary to plan and execute construction of the float, about the same amount  Teachers Asking For 6-8 Percent In Salary Raises  By Paul Glaviano  The San Marino Teachers Association Tuesday night presented its salary and fringe benefit proposal to the Board of Education, asking for raises of slightly under six percent for starting teachers, ranging up to slig-htly more than eight percent for teachers with 13 years experience, a master's degree  Knudson Elected UROC Area Chief  Gerald R.

The news must have been somewhat less than comforting to the trustees, who this year have been faced with a continuous round of cost-cut-ting as district revenues edged toward the point of exhaustion. In addition to the requests on salary, the teachers have asked for a wide spectrum of fringe benefits and improved working conditions, including a stipulation that no class within the district may exceed 25 students.  Note  Another note of increased teacher militancy was sounded when Mickey McNamee, chairman of the Certified Employees Council of the SMTA announced that the Association's executive board will employ the services of a consultant from the California Teachers Association to advise the teachers during the negotiations with the school board.  McNamee gave a formal letter to board president Nick Ugrin informing him of the SMTA decision to employ John Donaldson of the CTA, "so it won't be a surprise or concluded to be underhanded or behind-the-back on our part."  Under the proposal of the teachers, a beginning teacher with only a bachelor's degree would receive a starting pay of $7,515 in 1971-72. This represents an upward adjustment of $425 from the present starting pay of $7,090.  The top of the regular salary schedule would be $16,095 for a teacher with 13 years of experience, a master's degree and 75 units over and above the bachelor's level.
