W PA Employes
Are Dismissed
I Washtenaw
Workers Urged To Find
Employment In Industry
And On- Farms
Approximately 400 men from
Wasbtenaw county have been dis-
missed from the WPA payrolls and
will be encouraged to secure work on
farms, in private employment or on
other Federal projects, according to
Paul C. Kroske, WPA engineer for
Washtenaw county.
Orders for the lay-off came from
fifth district headquarters in Lan-
sing with the intention of making
WPA employes obtain other employ-
ment where it is available and to sup-
ply demands for labor in the county
which have not been met.
All those projects which are in-
complete, said Mr. Kroske, will be
finished with reduced crews. No proj-
ects have been started in the last
several months and none are con-
templated unless the relief bill which
is before Congress at the present time
is passed.
In making the cut, notice of dis-
missal hass been given to those least
likely to become a direct relief bur-
den. Mr. Kroske said that the lay-
offs were made on the basis of rec-
ommendations of the county welfare
relief administration. The instruc-
tions from Lansing stated that all
rural men who have farms or who
can work on farms, as well as single
men without dependents and certain
married men, should be dismissed.

New Presbyterian Ch;irch Planned To Ac commnodate

650 People

Reduced Fares'
For Rail Travel
Are Being Sold
Although 23 eastern railroads are
contesting the Interstate Commerce
Commission's order for lower pas-
scnger fares, tickets at the reduced
rate of two cents a mile for coach
travel and three cents a mile for Pull-
man travel are already being sold by
the Michigan Central and other east-
ern lines.
These tickets will not be honored
on trains until Monday, June 1, how-
ever, when the reduction from the
present 3.6 cents a mile rate become:
effective throughout the nation.
The surcharge placed on Pullman
fares by the railroads will also be dis-
continued, it was announced yester-
day at the local ticket office. Thc
elimination of this charge which ha;
already been made on many southern
and western lines will effect a saving
of 33 per cent on all Pullman fares.
Under the new rate schedule the
one-way coach fare from Ann Arbor
to Detroit will be reduced from $1.30

Plans Released By Committee
For New Presbyterian Church

Reservations For Students
Are To Be Maintanied In
New Office
Members of the building committee
for the new $200,000 FirstPresbyter-
ian Church have recently released
plans for the new edifice which will
be started this summer and be located
at 1432 Washtenaw Ave.
The style of architecture of the new
building, the construction of which
will be completed by September 1937,
will be a Church gothic type. This
style of architecture, members of the
committee said, is the most sugges-
tive of the religious motive and is
excellently adapted to the site. The
new church will be located on the
plot where the present church house
now stands. The front entrance of
the new building will be placed where
the front porch of the present house
is located.
The main auditorium of the church,

seating 650 people, will be at right
angles with Washtenaw Aye. In the
church, the choir will be placed on
one side, with the organ facing it.
This arrangement, says Palmer Chris-
tian, University organist and Prof.
Earl V. Moore of the music school, is
the best possible in that it makes pos-
sible a perfect blending of organ and
choir music so that the congregation
will receive the best possible recep-
tion of the music.
The site, which was purchased sev-
eral years ago, is located between the
Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and the
Chi Phi fraternity. It was formerly
owned by the late Prof. Isaac New-
ton Demmon of the English depart-
The local Presbyterian Church and
and the Presbyterian Church of the
State of Michigan are jointly raising
the money for this project.
The committee announced that
there would be ample room for park-
ing space on the new grounds in spite

of the many trees that are located G. Christman; George W. Kyler and
on the property. These trees, in- Samuel D. Porter.
cidently, will help add much beauty
to the new edifice, members of thej
committee pointed out.
The, building committee for the
new project is made up of Prof. Wil-
liam C. Hoad, of the engineering col-
lege, chairman; Prof. H. O. Whitte-
more of the engineering college, sec-
retary; John C. Christensen, treasur-
er; Roscoe O. Bonisteel; Dean
James B. Edmundson of the educations
school; E. F. Mills; Prof. George Mc-:
Conkey of the architecture cojiege;
Dr. William P. Lemon, ex-officio; Rol-
lo P. Frisinger; John Swisher; Lewis <;:

to 75 cents. All special week-enid
and other round-trip rates between
the two points will be discontinued.
The coach fare to New York will be
reduced from $26.02 to $15.00 while
the Pullman fare including lower
berth will be $27.50 instead of $33.52
On the new two cents per mile basis
the coach fare to Chicago will be
reduced from $8.92 to $5.00.
Fares to the South and the Far
West will show only a slight reduction
because the two cents per mile rate
has been in operation on most of the
roads of these sections since 1933.
"The zeppelin and airplane vie
with each other in an effort to
prove which is to be supreme in
the field of air. transportation.
The question can be settled only
when men can definitely decide
which is of greater importance
to commercial activity -speed
or capacity. Both qualities are
required in business of today. It
is for us to determine which
feature is indispensible and the
answer will carry the verdict."
Purity and pleasant taste are
the qualities chiefly desired in
drinking water. You can drink
no better than that cool, de-
