Money To Go
For Building
Construction
Two Proposals
Put on City Ballot
A $7,650,000 bond issue ear-
marked for construction of new
school buildings will be placed be-
fore Ann Arbor School District
voters today.
Two propositions will be on the
ballot as voters go to the polls
from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at five vot-
ing places.
PROPOSITION ONE asks per-
mission to sell $7,650,000 in new
bonds to finance school construc-
tion, and states that $4,200,000 in
bonds, the unissued balance of a
$5,800,000 issue approved in 1949,
will be canceled by an affirma-
tive vote on the new bonds.
Proposition Two seeks permis-
sion to raise up to 10 mills ($10
per $1,000 of assessed valuation)
in taxes to pay off the new bonds
and the $350,000 debt remaining
from the 1949 building program.
A majority vote on each prop-
osition is needed to pass the pro-
gram.
Voting machines have been set
up at Ann Arbor High School for
First and Sixth Ward residents,
Bach School for Second Ward
residents, Mack School for Third
Ward residents and all residents
living outside the city eligible to
vote, Jones School for Fourth and
Fifth Ward residents and Burns
Park School for Seventh Ward res-
Only school district property
taxpayers and their husbands and
wives may vote on the first prop-
osition, while all registered voters
may vote on the second question.
PROPOSED TO expand and im-
prove Ann Arbor's presently over-
crowded school facilities, the bond
issue will be used for construction
at four schools.
Biggest allocation of funds
would go for a new senior high
school costing $5,500,000 to be
built on Stadium Blvd. near the
edge of the city.
Planned to accommodate 1500
ce to 1800 students, but big enough
for 2,400 under peak conditions,
the projected modern structure is
seen as a solution for the present
cramped high school.
Elementary schools are also ov-
nd ercrowded, and officials see grow-
he ing enrollment years ahead. A
i- school census revealed that an-
other 1,339 children will be en-
n tering the elementary schools in
d five years, with junior high en-
0 rollment expected to be 500 high-
er by 1956 and more than 1,140
more high school students fore-
i- seen by 1962.
ad
gg To solve the elementary and
junior high school problem,
n., $700,000 of the bond issue would
be allocated for a northwest ele-
mentary school, $120,000 for ad-
Ii- ditions to Northside School and
et $700,000 for expansion at Slau-
>r, son Junior High School.
A special contingency fund of
- $630,000 would also be set up from
t bond proceeds.
Voters needing transportation
or babysitting service may call

n- student volunteers at Ann Ar
Sbor High School by telephoning
3-0551.

and LUCKIES
TASTE BETTER!
Cleaner; Fresher, Smoother!
Ask yourself this question: Why do I smok?
You know, yourself, you smoke for enjoyment.
And you get enjoyment only from the taste of a
cigarette.
Luckies taste better-cleaner, fresher, smoother!
Why? Luckies are made better to taste better. And,
what's more, Luckies are made of fine tobacco.
L.S./M.F.T.-Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco.
So, for the thing you want most in a cigarette ...
for better taste-for the cleaner, fresher, smoother
taste of Lucky Strike ...
