average industrial community of the
Mid-West. Ann Arbor's 10.7 per cent
foreign-born is less than the state
Without the large fortunes of larg-
er industrial cities, Ann Arbor is a
comparatively wealthy community.
Per capita sales, 1935, were $636 com-

The number of individual income

be Merrie, the mother insisted, and Merrie she has been ever since.
