North Campus Gains Major Buildings

olling hills given over to pas-

In recent years, discussions of
higher education have tended to'
concentrate upon questions of
mounting enrollments, and the
need for more teachers, more
buildings, more books and equip-
-ment, and more money. These
needs are very real, but University
faculty and administrators have
also seen in them a tremendous
opportunity to expand the services
of higher education to a society
?requiring an ever-growing source
of educated manpower. '
To accept this opportunity and
to fulfill its obligation to future
generations of students, the Uni-
versity began early to plan for.
the years of growth which lie
The Regents commissioned the,
first action to acquire land for the
development of a new campus area
north of the Huron River in Ann
Arbor at the meeting of December,
1949. At the May 19 meeting the
Regents authorized a contract-with
Eero Saarinen and Associates of
Birmingham, Mich., to provide
outside consultation in the devel-
opment of the area north of the
huron River. There followed a
period of intensive preliminary
planning for campus development
under the direction of Eero Saari-
nen. On Nov. 23, 1951, Saarinen
made his report to the Regents
and presented the first .elements
of a plan which gave form to the
North Campus project.
A unique feature of the North
Campus is the close liaison with
industry which both the Univer-
sity and the City of Ann Arbor
are encouraging. Both Parke-Davis
and Company, andthe .Bendix
Corporation have already con-
structed research centers which
make possible an exchange of per-
sonnel and information beneficial
to both education and industry.
This past year the University
sold a tract of land to the Cli-
max Molybdium Corp. which will'
be using it for research purposes.
The Bureau of Fisheries has
also been given land by the Uni-
versity for a research center, which
will be completed within the next;

it's That Time Again!
Whether you're student, teacher, cafeteria employee, the
dean's secretary or room-mother . . .yours are the footsteps
soon to be heard echoing in halls of learning all over the
country. And what do you wear if you want your feet to look
smart as you are? New sports, flats, boots and stacks that are
an education in themselves! Never before have back-to-the-
books skimmers and ties been so interesting . . . so beautifully
coordinated with everything you wear . .. so well prepared with
detailing to collect compliments for, you by the bushel!
Mocs aren't "just mocs" with careful hand .stitching on
vamps and the new gleam of rich bronze wax, winey cordovan
or greened-almost-to-black leathers. Imagine how smart your
pleated plaid skirt will look with these, not to mention that new
spice brown jumper!
You'll love suede ties and slip-ons in gay'n giddy colors . , .
on zippy foam rubber soles. Bounce smartly up school steps in
these and your knit "fisherman's shirt" pullover. Enjoy 'em for
active sports with your slim-jims.
There's nothing but exciting surprise on your flats curri-
culum! Show off your soft mohair dress, your picture-frame
neckline suit in flats which show off you. Skimmers are sleeker.
Straps are sensational. In dressy new flats the line's the thing!
Open-work, cut-outs, tricky ties and swooping sidelines flatter
your classic sweaters and dresses from eight o'clock classes
through eight o'clock dates!
Don't forget your boots! Dressy heel weather proofs, gaudy
in red and black patent tall checkerboards, sassy multicolored
scalloped suedes, furry topped warmers, convertible tops and
button-downs! Casual boots are everywhere . . . climbing the
stadiums, starring at the most fashionable corn popping and
coke get-togethers, ankle caressing boots rate loud cheers! You'll
want btter-than-ever boots with kiltie skirts, culottes and, of
course, your grey flannel pants.
You'll need regulation gym shoes, comfortable, easily
cleaned styles for cheerleaders and good-looking band shoes for
this new season. Look at your tennis shoes! They're canvas or
flannel, but they're news in brass or grey; cranberry, brown or
red and black plaid and rave-making in herringbone weaves on
rope trimmed soles!
This Fall sees a little heel strolling gracefully through school
doorways. Little heels covered or stacked lead the fashion class
whether one-and-a-half or half-inch high! Small heels take new
shapes .. .the better to showcase your All-American "leggy
look" and make every soft casual outfit more charming. The
"Country Look" of Vogue comes to the campus. Little heels have
that air of understated sophistication every girl yearns for!
Wait'll you see what they do for your pinafores and pull-over
Colors? Academic shoe hits are colorful as a football. game!
Reds from lipstick to old wine . . . deep greens, platinum greys,
vivid blues, warm spicy brown tones, beautifully grained or an-
tiqued treatments, basic blacks and well-educated combinations!
Big event dress-up pumps? Naturally! Fragile, softer and more
feminine from demi-heels to high with lush touches of stitchery,
perforations, appliques and peep-eyes to make you irresistible.
Slip into a gorgeous variety of gleaming leathers to silks and
brocades. Choose your colors and feel like a party!
Shoes to make everything you wear lovelier . . . styles to
make you glad school's open so you can show 'em off.., shoes
you see in Seventeen and Mademoiselle are by famed designers
