CONSTRUCTION of the $2,600,000 Washtenaw County building
depended on approval of a bond proposal and a tax increase proposal.
Both were defeated.
The total county vote on the bond issue was 5,112 "yes" and
5,353 "no," while the tax increase proposal lost by a vote of 6,183
"yes" to 6,219 "no."
Ypsilanti's votes were instrumental in defeating the county
building proposals. In that city, voters opposed both issues by an
eight-to-one ratio. Ann Arbor voters favored the proposals by a
four-to-one ratio. Voting in the out-county precincts was light be-
cause of muddy roads, but even in these districts the vote went
generally against the county building.
Many Ypsilanti residents have argued for a county building site
at the edge of Ann Arbor. The proposals on"yesterday's ballot would
have put the new county building on the site of the old Washtenaw
County courthouse. The courthouse is at the corner of Main and
Huron in downtown Ann Arbor.

THE BARNARD Heights-Stadium Hills area will remain outside
the city limits by the choice of its own residents, who voted against
annexation by a vote of 34 to 32. For annexation of an area to take
place, a "yes" vote is necessary in the area involved as-well as in Ann
Arbor city and township.
University-owned Stadium Hills golf course -is part of the
Barnard Heights-Stadium Hills area.
The four tracts which will be annexed to Ann Arbor, as a result
of yesterday's ballot, are the Miller Rd.-Newport Rd. area; Tuomy-
Londonderry property; Gowans propety, and Stadium-Washtenaw
A $2,000,000-PLUS housing development is planned for the Stad-
ium-Washtenaw area. Construction of the 250-unit project depended
on annexation of the area, according to a representative of the builder,
a Washington, D.C., firm.
All election returns cited are complete, though unofficial.
According to City Clerk Fred J. Looker, rain came too late to
affect yesterday's city-county vote, which was about average for an
off-year spring election involving a major local issue.
The only Ann Arbor upset, Looker said, was in the fourth ward,
which has voted Democratic for years. Yesterday, both Republican
candidates in that ward were elected.

Panama Canal Citedt As
The Panama Canal will not be able to' meet traffic demands by
1960 and is extremely vulnerable to air attack, according to Prof.
William H. Hobbs, of the Department of Geology.
Speaking at a meeting of the Naval Research Reserve last night,
he presented his plan for an additional site, which is before Congress
at the present time.
PROF. HOBBS proposes that a canal be built across the narrowest
part of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico. It will be 126 feet

Student Struck by
Auto Near League
James W. Root, '51E, was
struck and injured by an automo-
bile at 7:41 p.m. last night while
crossing North University Avenue
in front of the League.
Root, whose home is in Toledo,
Ohio, suffered a compound frac-
,ure of the right leg, possible rib
fractures and head bruises, ac-

Because of strategically locat-
ed airfields and islands it would
be far more impregnable to air
attack than Panama. Its twin
ditches would be three miles
apart, so that an atom bomb
could not block both with a sin-
gle hit. Adjacent oil fields would
provide needed fuel.
Until a profile study of the land
is made, it would be useless to try
to estimate the cost, Prof. Hobbs
THIS PLAN has been submitted
as an alternate proposal to one
offered by the Engineering Corps.,
which suggests a similar canal
across the isthmus, but at a point
165 feet in width. It also proposes
that the present canal at Panama
be doubled in width and converted
to a sea level structure.
According to Prof. Hobbs this
site could be. blocked for several
weeks by bombing and this recon-
version would necessitate the in-
stallation of highly vulnerable
