//4thit9 "---
Television history will be made
when 10,600 pounds of bellowing
elephants are brought onto the
American Broadcasting System
television stage today.
Feature attraction on the "Su-
per Circus", the three huge ele-
pnts will be brought into the
center ring by James M. Cole, I,
son of the famous Jimmy Cole
of Cole Brothers Circus.
Because they are the only mo-
ther-baby elephant combination in
iihe country, the bulky animals re-
ceived top billing.
* * *
TV VIEWERS from six to 60
know that no circus is complete
without clowns and acrobats. "Su-
per Circus" also realized that and
both will be performing in today's
telecast. Add to this a monkey,
ponies and dogs and you have an
authentic big top show.
While TV can successfully
bring the circus into your homes,
it can not bring the real thrill of
the big top; the candy floss, hot-
dogs, ice cream, peanuts and
popcorn. This must be supplied
by the TV owners.
Although this program has been
planned for the entertainment of
the younger set, many point out
the fact that "life begins at forty.":
FOR SPORT enthusiasts of De-
troit and vicinity, station WXYZ-
TV has signed a new sport for
television, the Hot Rod Races. Or-
iginating at Detroit's Motor City
Speedway, the races will be televis-
ed for a minimum of 15 weeks
during the summer.
What will be the results of these
new telecasts?
A recent survey of Chicago TV
owners indicates that these two
programs may have different .ef-
fects on the viewers.
As for a beneficial effect one TV
owner commented:
"It keeps my husband home. He
used to go to the tavern every
night, but now he gets his beer and
drinks it at home."
* * *
Others point out that these two
new shows might keep the hus-
band in the tavern because there
is no TV set in his home. They are,
however, a good attempt of TV's
effort to bring better entertain-
Inent for all ages on the TV screen.

Station Will Be Parcel Post Center


Under construction for about
seven months, the new University
branch post office is slated to be-
gin regular operations at 8 a.m.
No formal opening day ceremon-
ies are planned for the new build-
ing, which is located at 615 E.
University Ave., just down the
street from the East Quad.
DESIGNED TO service most of
the mail routes on the east side of
the city, sixteen mail carriers will
begin operations from the station
sometime this week, according to
Postmaster Oswald J. Koch.
In addition, it' will function
as a clearing house for all of the
parcel post mail to come into
Ann Arbor,
The new building is equipped
with complete mail facilities, with
two windows for registered mail,
money orders, stamps, and parcel
post, and four combination stamp
and parcel post windows.
* * *
THE FRONT PART of the post
office features a unique counter
arrangement. The plywood parti-
tions are only chest high, allow-
ing anyone entering the front of
the building a complete view of
the interior workings of the sta-
This is one of the first post
offices in the United States to
employ such an arrangement,
Koch remarked.
The huge single main floor room
of the new station provides more
than ,000 square feet of much-
needed space for the Ann Arbor
post office system. Much of it is
taken up by the many rows of
parcel post distribution contain-
ers. The station has been handl-
ing all of the city's parcel post
delivery for nearly a month now.
A system of fluorescent lights
keps the room well lighted for
day and night work. All fixtures
in the building are up-to-date and

A LARGE loading platform be-
hind the building makes it possible
for mail trucks to easily load and
unload the nearly two carloads of
parcel post mail handled by the
station in a single twenty-four
hour period.
Another feature of the new
post office is a locked observa-
tion wall for the use of U.S.
postal inspectors. It is equipped
with special one-way glass win-
dows from which most parts of
the room can be surveyed un-

With the beginning of regular
operations, mail delivery to the
East Quad and fraternity area will
be speeded up considerably, Post-
master Koch said. There has been
a pressing demand for increased
postal facilities in the campus
area as well as for the whole city,
and the new building is expected
to relieve this to a large extent.
The post office leases the main
floor and half of the second
floor of the building. The re-
mainder has been made into,
five roms, which are occupied
by Phi Delta Chi, national phar-
macy fraternity, and five of-

tndent of mails and a long-time
post office employe, has been ap-
pointed superintendent of the new
station. Usual post office hours-

handled daily by the new campus branch post office is sorted by
two postal employes.

NEW-TYPE PARTITIONS-A special feature of the University
branch post office is the "partial-partition" arrangement of the
windows which permit customers a full view of the post office's
interior workings.
