Finishes Year
Of Operatioi
The University's student Architec-
ture Clinic, which serves the interests
of Michigan's home owners, this week
concludes its first year of successful
To the prospective builder of a
small home, the clinic, which is
maintained by the College of Archi-
tecture and Design, offers complete
architectural service in the designing
and building of a small residence.
The clinic offers seniors in the
College of Architecture a means for
obtaining practical architectural ex-
perience, which is required for gradu-
ation from the college. Under the su-
pervision of a member of the fac-
ulty, these students have opportunity
to plan actual homes, estimate their
cost and inspect their construction.
To use the services of the clinic,
the home-builder must be planning
a home for his own use, costing not
more than $6,000. Thus the clinic,
rather than competing with private
architects and builders, actually aids
them by proving to the general pub-
lic the value of competent architec-
tural service.
To make sure that the home is
built according to Federal Housing
Administrations, the clinic requires
inspections by FHA experts, by a
member of the faculty or by a regis-
tered architect.
Charges made by the clinic are
scheduled to cover expenses incured
in drawing up preliminary plans,
blueprints, specifications and inspec-
tions. A five-dollar fee is charged
the client when he first consults the
clinic, and expenses of typing and

blue printing to the extent of $10 can
be charged to the client. No money
payments are made to students for
their work in the clinic.

The Fall of Jericho has been veri-

Investigations of the ancient wall
of Jericho revealed a sudden destruc-
tion of the wall and the city at a
period placed with reasonable cer-
tainty between 1390 and 1400 B.C.
which coincides with the reference in
the Old Testament'.
Seeking material evidence for the
famous fall of the walls of Jericho,
Professor Garstang exhibited slides
showing evidence that an earthquake
destroyed the wall. The country still
is subject to seismic disturbances.
The same quake, he pointed out,
may have been responsible for dam-
ming the river nearby thus causing
the "waters to rise."
