of deteriorated property should be,
encouraged to improve it. He with-
holds his final decision whether he
favors Urban Renewal until the
plan is finally developed and more
fully explained. He urges that the
residents and taxpayers who would
be affected by the plan be con-
sulted fully before it is put into
In his ward, McKercher feels,
the traffic problem in the areas of
the hospitals and the North Cam-
pus is the most serious immediate
problem. He suggests one solution
might be more offstreet parking.

A one-act play, "The Mouse-
Trap," by William Dean Howells
will be presented at 4:10 p.m.
today in Trueblood Auditorium, as
the second in this semester's
series on the speech department's
Laboratory Theatre Bill.
Although there are perhaps
better known literary "mouse-
traps" than this 1880 farce, few
of these can provide more laughs
in a half-hour's time than this
ever-modern sketch from the pen
of one of America's first literary
Though the surface issue in the
play is women's suffrage, the far-
cical implications are concerned
with the universally moot ques-
tion, "Which is the stronger sex?"
The role of the man caught In
his own mousetrap is played by
Ty McConnell, '61. Hilda Gage,
'60, will play the part of the fem-
inine antagonist, while Susan
Ecker, '61, Cecile Weinstein, '61,
Sally Tozer, '61, and Valjoan Ur-
ban, '61, will play visiting women.
Kay Delle Smith, '59, will be
seen as the maid.
A color motion picture on
"Spain" will close the Burton
Holmes travelogue series at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
Sponsored by University Plat-
form Attractions, the film tour
will include modern Madrid with
its plazas, avenues and the Na-
tional Palace; Toledo, home of El
Greco and Grenada with "the

COUNCIL MEETING-The Ann Arbor City Council discusses a controversial issue at a recent
meeting. Standing up is Ann Arbor's outgoing mayor, Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld of the political
science department. Elections for the mayor's office and for five Council seats, one from each of the
city's five wards, will be held April 6. One Democrat and one Republican is running for each position.
One of the prime issues before
Ann Arbor, Miss Dwyer says, is
the support of the new city char-
ter, adopted in 1955. It needs clari-
fication and amendment in a few
places, she says, but on the whole
it is "an extremely efficient instru-
ment of government."
She feels that discrimination is
"a critical issue." She says she
will support the recommendations
recently made by the Human Rela-
She also supports Urban Re-
newal because, she says, she sees
no other means to its goal of giving
the residents of the area "decent
houses and neighborhoods."
She supports the establishment
of a municipal trash collection.
She quotes Dr. Otto K. Engelke,.
City and County Health Officer, as
saying that present methods of
trash disposal offer considerable
danger of epidemics.
This is especially important in
her ward, she says, since the main
route to the dump is there and it
is continually littered.
Also important in her ward, she
says,, is the development of parks,
including tennis courts particu-
Mrs. Florence R. Crane (R-
Ward ID is the wife of Prof. H. R.
Crane of the physics department.
She has been city councilman from
her ward for the past two years.
She has been active in the Citi-
zens' Council, the League of Wom-
en Voters, the American Associa-
tion of University Women, and the
Faculty Women's Club. She is 47
An important issue which will,
come up soon, Mrs. Crane feels, is
that of replacing the present zon-
ing ordinance, which was adopted
She feels that the kinds of re-
strictions on land use for which it
provides are sometimes unclear
and sometimes behind the times,
From The Broadway
and that its procedures for zoning
make it cumbersome.
Mrs. Crane feels that one of her
ward's most important problems
is that of moving US-23 out of
She also thinks that the traffic
and parking problems in the State
St., Main St. and South University
shopping areas, all in her ward,
should be worked on.
William K. Marshall (D-Ward
II) is assistant' manager of Bob
Marshall's Book Shop. He has at-
tended the University and Cornell
College in Iowa. He served as a
lieutenant in the paratroops in
the Korean War. He is 28 years
Marshall thinks discrimination
is one of the city's most important
problems. He thinks it is "a com-
plex and delicate" problem but
feels an ordinance is "the only
.He thinks a fair ordinance could
be arrived at through public de-
bate. He has no final opinion about
how it should be phrased.
He supports the present Urban
Renewal plan. He proposes that
the city move ahead on it as fast
as possible "consistent with eco-
nomy and my concernffor avoiding
discrimination in the result."
Marshall is interested in the
profitable use of the Huron River.
He supports the Huron River
Watershed Inter -Governmental
Committee in its study of the

City To Vote
This April 6, voters will be of-
fered a chance to increase the
range of salary offered'their mu-
nicipal judge, according to Miss
Alicia Dwyer, Supervisor of the
Business Administration School
and City councilwoman.
At their meeting last February
2, the City Council voted to place
this resolution on the ballot. The
reason for this, Miss Dwyer said,
"is to bring the municipal judge's
salary more in line with the salary
of other city jobs."
The present salary range of the
municipal judge is from $4,000 to
$9,000 and the proposed increased
range would be from $7,000 to
$16,000. Miss Dwyer said, "we in-
tend neither to place the salary at
the maximum or minimum, but
this will give us a better range
with which to work."
According to present municipal
judge Francis L. O'Brien, "the
salary of an elected official can-
not be raised during his term in
office, and since the term of mu-
nicipal judge is a six year term,
the availability of a salary increase
for the job would not become a
possibility until 1962."
Judge O'Brien pointed out some
of the reasons salaries of court of-
ficials in the state have lagged be-
hind those of other positions.
