File Gi ves
Exams "not generally given out
by departments" are providing a
problem in the Student Govern-
ment Council's exam file, Barton
Burkhalter, '60E, chairman of the;
Education & Welfare Committee
said yesterday.
The exams, collected from vari-
ous departments and housing units
at the University, include those
given each year by the economics,
astronomy and French depart-
ments, Jane Stick, '61, added.
Prof. Shorey Peterson of the
economics department, who was
contacted by Burkhalter, advised
the committee not to put the
questionable exams in the file be-
cause they would "not be beneficial
to the learning process."
The committee is currently
checking with professors in the
various departments using exams
in successive years.
The exam file, located in the
basement of the Undergraduate
Library, was recently supplied with
a number of new exams including
all the chemistry and pharmacy
tests for the past years.

Commissioner John C. Mackie
has announced that the Michiga
State Highway Department will
hold a public hearing about the
proposed relocation of US-23 at 10
a.m. on January 16.
The meeting will take place in
the University's Frieze Building.
All interested people are invited
to participate in the discussion
over the controversial relocation,
Commissioner Mackie reported.
The Eastbelt proposal was origi-
nally aired by State Highway Com-
missioner John C. Mackie on Dec.
23 at a meeting in the City Hall
sponsored by the Ann Arbor
Chamber of Commerce.
Proposal's Cost Revealed
The present relocation proposal
under consideration will cost about
$11,000,000 for the 9.2 miles long
expressway. This is slightly longer
than the original 8.7 mile proposal
which bisected North Campus and
brought strong protest from Wash-
tenaw County residents.
The entire section of the new
highway will be 19.3 miles long.
The new expressway will permit
the removal of large volumes of
through traffic from the streets
of Ann Arbor, and will connect the
expressway system ringing the
Ann Arbor area.
This Eastbelt project is part of
a series of local projects included
in a $280,000,000 program of new
construction, according to Com-
missioner Mackie. The Eastbelt
road is part of a 25 mile system
which streches from Fenton to
Whitmore Lake. When the series
of projects is completed, the ex-
pressway will connect the Ohio
Turnpike and Sault Ste. Marie.
Department To Participate
The State Highway Department
will present data at the public
hearing that it has prepared about
the economic effect of the pro-
posed highway on the surrounding
area as well as engineering and
location data.
The Ann Arbor City Council may
take a stand on the proposal at
its meeting on Monday night. The
City Planning Commission has
recommended to the Council ap-
proval of the present proposed
location of the expressway.
The possibility of action by the
City Council stems from City Ad-
ministrator Guy C. Larcom, Jr.'s
position that the city should be
represented at the public hearing
to be held over the route, and his
feeling that the city should have
a position to present.
Will Connect Milan
The new 19.3 mile section of.
highway will be of controlled ac-
cess design throughout. It will
connect to the 10 mile long Ann
Arbor-Whitmore Lake expressway
to the north and to Milan in the
The highway will intersect with
the US-12 expressway south of
Ann Arbor, which carries traffic
east and west from Detroit to the
Indiana border, and will form a
major link in the US-23 north-
south arterial expressway route
carrying traffic from the Ohio
border north to the Straits of
Mackinaw and Sault Ste. Marie.
Sections of US-23 Expressway
already completed or under con-
struction are: from the Ohio
border to Dundee, Ann Arbor to
the Washtenaw-Livingston County
Line and from east of Fenton at
the Livingston - Genesee County
Line to north of Clio in Saginaw
Begins at County Line
The proposed route of the new
expressway section begins at the
