Ainn Arbor trivia; pursuing the facts

"By Stephanie Riley
Daily Special Writer
jRecently, a friend invited mue to
play a new game, Ann Arbor Tri ial
kPursuit. I thought it would be easy
*since I had spent four years here in
;Ann Arbor. However, there is
virtually a plethora of inforiation
About Ann Arbor which has bee-.
made into trivia questions.
{ It's played just like the reguiai
'game except your gamne piece is a
glove compartment with six parkii g
tickets. The object is to pay thef-
gaff by answering questions correctly,

T1he first jm-sfit to get rid of all their
tickets, wins. Half way trough the
gande I was hoping Ii patikiiug
Facts LUriiA up about the town
which I £lCvei kni.w existe. For in-
stance did you know thnat the poets
Robert Prost anid W. f-1 Auden both
resicAat oi u piiit in AAni Arbor.
That. was the arien-i to my lutst
4ucstioii tthe 1 itt dtattu, 4at.;gOly,
SO I ns~ed the lIIIL J0ul. voimig.
illy uppoitiit i u-I tuo. tHis qucs'
tion was easy houugh. How nmary

I caiimt get rid of! If I just concen-

categoiy? I could answer all of those.
My big; Chance to tie the game

phy spac.e, Ann Arbor is home to
oixc of thetfew glass-roofed shopping
arcades in the country. What is its
name? That's easy! Nickels Arcade.
It was built in 1915 and the owls on

the walls are there to scare pigeons
My opponent was up again and
he got a history question: The orga.-
nization of the Peace Corps were an-
nouniced by whom, when and where?
I almost majored in history so 1
should get this one. On October i2}
1960 President John F. Keinnedy
made the announcement on the steps
of the Michigan Union.

lead with a science and nature ques-
