This means that out of town spec-
tators will drive into Ann Arbor in
about 20,080 cars, park, and later
drive away all within a space of six,
hours. Add to this figure all the facul-
ty, students and townspeople who
walk up and back from the stadium
and then consider the trafic difficul-
ties confronting police officials.
The average fan who wants to get
away from the stadium after the
game as quickly as possible usually
thinks of traffic as moving along at
a snail's pace. But Sergt. Sher-
man H. Mortenson, of the Ann Arbor,
police department who has charge
of traffic control within the city is
p oud of the fact that within an hour
the heaviset part of the traffic in
town has disappeared.
Sergt. Mortenson has a staff of 75
officers under him on the day of the
big game. About 25 state police, a few
officers from nearby cities, several
men from the sheriff's office, and the
regular city police make up this group.
The highways leading ifnto Ann Ar-
bor are patroled by the state police.
Draftees To Join
COnscript Army
Four local men and six from the
county outside Ann Arbor will be
sent into the nation's conscript army
at the end of the month, it was dis-
closed yesterday.
Ann Arbor will be expected to send
279 men into the army by next June
according to a quota assigned the
local area. Since the city has 14
on its volunteer lists now it is un-
likely that any outside of this group
will be called in the first contingent.
The board are now busy sending
out questionnaires and classifying
registrants according to their eligi-
bility. From those who qualify phy-
sically will be chosen the first con-'
scripts.

maximum use the big problem has
been to get the police to the scene of
the tie-up as soon as possible. An ob-
server in the plane has been able to
spot jams as soon as they start. The!
plane's radio senos crews to the scene
immediately.

Arbor Laundries have solved for them the problem of having a constant
supply of clean clothes.
