By JOHN RICKEL
The Ann Arbor Board of Educa-
tion approved a motion engaging
architects to begin plans for en-
larging the size of the Northside
Elementary School at its meeting
Tuesday night.
Jack Elzay, Superintendent of
Schools, explained that the North-
side School is very overcrowded,
and that in addition to converting
some of the special activities roomsI
to classrooms, some kindergarten
students are being transferred to
other schools by bus.
The firm of architects has al-
ready begun studies for enlarging
the school, Elzay said, and he con-
tinued, the new addition, when
completed, would bring the school
to a total of eighteen classrooms.
Honor Group
Sets Weeldy
Discussions
Discussion groups in particular
fields of interest, led by various
professors and instructors in the,
literary college, will meet weekly
for some four or five weeks this
semester.
The groups will be organized by
students in the honors council, but
will be open to all interested stu-
dents.
Among the 45 topics offered are
"Obscurity in 20th Century litera-
ture," led by Prof. Herbert Bar-
rows of the English department,
"U.S.-Soviet Relations" led by
Prof. George Kish of the geog-
raphy department, "The Medieval
Origins of the Modern University"
led by J. W. Baldwin of the his-
tory department, and "Morality:
Its Biological Basis" led by R. D.
Milkman of the .zoology depart-
ment.
Once the groups, consisting of
approximately 10 students have
been organized, they can get in
touch with the professor in ques-
tion and arrange for a convenient
meeting time and place. Places for
the meetings would be dormitories
or fraternity or sorority houses.

With this approval, Elzay said,
"the addition will be completed
by the second semester of next
year, and possibly much earlier-
I hope."
Receives 50 Per Cent
During the meeting of the School
Board, Gerald Neff, Assistant
Supervisor in Charge of-Finance.
announced that the School Board
is receiving only about fifty per
cent of the appropriations prom-
ised to it by the State Legislature.
Neff said that the School Board
will remain financially able to meet
its obligations until next Septem-
ber if the State continues paying
at its present rate. After this
time, Neff said, the Board will
have no more resources.
Prof. Albert H. Marckwardt of
the English department, a trustee
of the Board of Education, intro-
duced a resolution to the meeting
which called on the State Legis-
lature for support of public edu-
cation in the state as its constitu-
tion provides.
He cited both the financial
plight of the Universities and the
secondary schools of the state.
Asks Payment Resumption
The resolution called for a re-
sumption of payments to the
'schools, and for a steady flow of
revenue to the schools in the
future. Prof. Marckwart said copies
of the resolution would be sent to
Gov. G. Mennen Williams, Repre-
sentatives George Sallade (R-Ann
Arbor) and James Warner (R-
Washtenaw), and other members.
Dean.,.Cowen'
To GiveTl
Zelman Cowen, Dean of the Uni-
versity of Melbourne Law School,
will discuss the comparative as-
pects in the constitutional law and
legal education of the United
States and Australia.
The Dean is considering an au-
thority on the "full faith and
credit" aspects of law conflicts. He
has written extensively in that
field and in the area of federal
constitutional problems in Aus-
tralia.

FORD'S FAIRLANE-The brown stone baronial mansion which Henry Ford built as his home in 1915 will be part of the Univers
Dearborn Center. Much of the house contains fine wood paneling which Mrs. Ford had covered with light green paint, reportedly n
to Ford's displeasure. Silver doorknobs and bathroom fixtures are highlights of the home which will be utilized for seminars and a
education courses. The house contains over 50 rooms, and features 14 usable fireplaces.
