OM, SISTER HERE TOO:
Father, Son Will Graduate Together
By CARA CHERNIAK
Many sons follow the family tra-
tion and graduate from "dear old
lad's alma mater," but few fathers
and sons have the distinction of
graduating from the same univer-
sity at the same time.
Oscar W. Agre, '51, and Oscar W.
Agre, Jr., '51, do not find it the
east unusual to be attending school
bogether and graduating at the
same time. They think it is an ex-
cellent idea, and heartily recom-

A daughter-and sister-Vel-
ma Agre, '54,. also joined the
ranks and began attending the
University last September.
Not to be outdone, Mrs. Oscar
Agre, Sr., is taking an extension
course in English from the Univer-
A VERY interesting past life has
brought the Agre family to Michi-
gan and the University.
"Our home is the U. S. A," said
Oscar Agre, Sr., when asked where
the family originally lived. "During
the past twenty-three years we
have lived in as many as eleven,
cities, rarely remaining in one cityi
for more than a year or so. Our
first real home has been here in
After serving in the army for
three years, Agre, Sr. was dis-
abled and medically discharged.
It was then necessary for him to
come to Ann Arbor for treat-;
mnents. The treatments, now less1
frequent, are taken between se-;
mesters and during the summer.
His field is social work, and he
hopes to go on for a master's de-

AGRE, SR. has also attended a
private theological seminary in
Chicago, graduated from the Har-
vard Chaplain School, and has
worked with the Salvation Army.
In 1949 he received a letter from
President Ruthven commending
him for "the way in which your3
life has been so freely dedicatedi
to the service of others." He wasi
asked to receive an award of $500j
from the University as an expres-s
HARWICH, Eng.-P)--A terrific
explosion ripped an industrial ex-
plosives factory south of Harwich
yesterday, killed three workmen,
injured 25 and rocked 20 miles of
Britain's east coast.
Another workman is missing.
The explosion obliterated one
building of the explosives and
chemical products company and
wrecked two others.
Only a deep crater remained
where one of the buildings stood.
The three men killed were work-
ing in it.
The missing worker, a youth,
was believed to have been pushing
a truck on rails connecting several
of the buildings.
Survivors said a small blast was
followed by a terrific explosion and
from the crater where the missing
building stood a column of white.
smoke rose several thousand feet.
Windows were shattered at Clac-
ton, 12 miles away. Residents of
half a dozen villages nearby said
they were knocked against walls
and that houses trembled.
Some of the 200 persons at work
in the dispersed buildings of the
plant suffered shock. Most of the
injured were struck by debris.
An official of the company saic

Velma Agre, .although a fresh-

THE AGRES live on Koch
Street, and they room four other
students. During their spare time,
father and son built a modern
bedroom and bathroom at the back
of the house, and a recreation room
in the basement with a darkroom
for Agre, Sr. They also completely
painted the house.
Television in the front room
is very distracting, the Agres ad-
mit, but it provides an excellent
diversion from studies.
"This has been one of the most
interesting experiences I've ever
had in my life," Mrs. Agre said.
"I'm very proud of them all.
The erection of a nine-story
parking structure.in Ann Arbor
has been proposed by Mayor Wil-:
liam k. Brown, Jr. to the City
Brown suggested that the build-
ing, which woulduse a "semi-au-
tomatic" parking system,be con-
structed on they northeast corner
of Main and William.
Designs for the building have
already been drawn up, he said.
He also stated that he had a 60-
day option to buy a lot on the
corner for $42,000.
FOUR YEARS AGO-A DREAM:
NSA Serves as Spokesman
For Nation's Student Body
Though four years ago a nation-
wide student organization was just
an idea, today the National Stu-
dent Association stands as the rep-
resentative body of 800,000 stu-,
dents and the spokesman for the
American college community.
The University is one of 325 col-
leges and universities which are
members of the NSA. Here, the
Student Legislature serves as the
link between the national organi-
zation and the student body.
DURING the school year, the
NSA is administered by officers
elected by the National Student
Congress from among its delegates.
The NSA was formedin 1946,
when 25 students, returning
from the World Student Con-
gress, conceived the idea of or-
ganizing a United States student
association. At that congress
they became aware of the fact
the United States alone was
without a representative student
'U' To Finance
The Ann Arbor City Council yes-
terday accepted a University offer
to pay $19,000 for putting in water
mains and sewer lines for the new
men's South Quadrange dormi-
The University's offer included
$14,000 for construction of a 12-1
inch water main on State from.
Hill to S. University, and $5,000
for a relief sanitary sewer on Cross
Full cost of both projects would
be covered by the University pay-
Actually, the University-be-
cause it is a tax-exempt state in-
stitution-is not required to make
such payments for water and se-
Alderman John S. Dobson term-

"It is something desirable since
present sewer lines in the area
might be overloaded if the dormi-
tory was hooked on," he said.
Experiences of a freshman city
councilman will be translated into
print Friday with the publication
of "On the City Council" by Prof.
Arthur W. Bromage of the politi-
cal science department.

Prof. Bromage is now serving his
first term as alderman on the lo-
cal city council.
