lice Claim Plan Eases Traffic Tie-ups

:I

By KEN McELDOWNEY
Although over 20,000 cars can
be expected to enter Ann Arbor
within one hour on any football
Saturday, the Ann Arbor police
have developed a system that is
able to handle it without much
confusion, according to Lt. H. D.
Schlupe, head of the Ann Arbor
Police Department's Traffic Bu-
reau.
By close cooperation with state
police troopers and Sheriff Depu-
ties, the Ann Arbor usual force
of about 25 men on duty Saturday
can be supplemented by a total
force of 150 men on duty. Seventy-
siv Ann Arbor Police patrol 107
intersections within the City of
Ann Arbor, while Sheriff's Depu-
ties patrol the country roads sur-
rounding Ann Arbor. The state
police handle the incoming cars
from Jackson, Flint and the Ohio
line.
Used for 20 Years
The system now in use has been
in effect for over 20 years without
any significant change, Schlupe
said, this accounts for thel rela-
tive ease in which the cars are
handled on a football Saturday.
At the beginning of the year the
Ann Arbor. police meet with the
Athletic Commission and country
officials to decide if any changes
are to be made. Any changes made
are usually small ones that entail,
only the changing of an officer
YDs Choose
New Offies
The University chapter of the
Young Democrats club held elec-
tions recently to fill four vacant
positions, according to Torre Bis-
sell, '60, chairman of the club.
Elected to the position of vice-
chairman was Howard Schumann,.
'61L; recording secretary, Mary
Ryan, '61SN; delegate to the state
convention, Val Joan Urban, '61;
and executive member of the
board at large, Marilyn Teppo, '59.

THEMES:
Coed Sing
Choices Due
Friday is the deadline for turn-
ing in selection*choices for the an-
nual Inter-House Council Assem-
bly sing, according to Barbara
Banks, '59; committee member.
Any of the residence halls are
welcome to enter, Miss Banks
said. Since this is one of the few
coeducational activities on cam-
pus, she explaired, a men's and
a women's house must join in the
contest.
,Based on a theme of music ori-
ginally from movies, the name of
the contest will be "Movie Melo-
dies." Each chorus entering the
competition can choose their own
selection, which will then be ap-
proved by the committee.
"For Judging the event sched-
uled for 9 p.m., Dec. 5, we hope
to have two faculty members
from the music school and two ad-'
ministrative o f f i c i a l s," Miss
Banks said.
A traveling trophy will, be
awarded to the winners of the
sing. The award is the joint dona-
tion of the Inter-House Council
and 'Assembly Association and
cannot be retired by any house,
regardless of the number of times
it wins.
Houses wishing to compete in
the sing may turn in their choice
of selection to Assembly or IHC
offices in the SAB.

TRAPPED--No matter how much planning goes into a football Saturday it seems that tieups such
as this one always happen. The hopeful fans making their way to the Stadium seem to have little,
if any, concern for the hapless motorist who, while trying to get nearer to the Stadium, has suddenly
become trapped. It seems he is destined to be led by the pedestrians until they have mercy and
release him.

from one corner to another to
handle the changes in traffic that
come about following changing of
streets, traffic flow or the con-
struejion of new roads.
Expressway Helps
Schlupe feels that the construc-
tion of the Detroit Expressway
has Taken much of the traffic load
off streets such as Washtenaw
which used' to handle much of
the traffic that came in from De-
troit and surrounding areas. The
motorists who use the Expressway
are able to come to the game
without going through Ann-Arbor,
thus decreasing the volume of
traffic that-must be handled on
the city streets.
The streets that carry most of
the load are Washtenaw, Stadium
Blvd., Huron, going East and
West, and State, Main. and Divi-
sion going North and South.
Most of the people who come to
Ann Arbor to see the University

play know their way not only to
Ann Arbor, but also to the Sta-
dium, Lt. Schlupe reports, so that
one source of confusion is thus
eliminated. With the many park-
ing lots, both'private and public
owned there is never any parking
problem for anyone willing to pay
a dollar.
Minor Accidents Only
Each Saturday the Police De-
partment expects ,that there will
be about 10 or 15 minor accidents
caused by the iicreased traffic.
There have been no major acci-
dents in the last few years that
can be directly attributed to the
Northwestern
Trip Planned
The Wolverine Club is sponsor-
ing a bus trip to the Northwestern
football game, according to Han-
ley Kripke, '61, chairman of the
special events committee.
Interested students will board
the buses at 6 a.m., Saturday,
Oct. 18, in front of the Union and
they will return to Ann Arbor at
4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets will be
sold from Monday to Wednesday
on the Diag for $9.50 round trip.
Students will have to provide
their own overnight accommoda-
tions and football tickets. Coeds
must file with the Wolverine Club
where they will be staying in
Evanston when they buy their bus
tickets.

increase of traffic on a football
Saturday.
On just the cost of overtime pay
alone the city of Ann Arbor must
pay $1,000 for each football Sat-
urday. This does not include the
salaries of the officers and men
who are normally on duty Satur-
day.
