4,

Just about now when the leaves
are beginning to turn and a bit
of frost is perceptible in the
air students take to wandering
around, exploring the scenic won-
ders of Ann Arbor.
There is so much to see.
Contrary to popular belief not
only botanists, zoologists and geo-
logists congregate amongst the
flora, fauna and terra of Nichols
Arboretum. Plain, unknowing na-
ture lovers find 'the arb' an en-,
chanting spot to either tread the
cheery little paths or sit upon a!
bank of the gently lapping Huron
River to ponder imponderables.

OTHER students with a feeling
for the past often frequent Ann
Arbor's sprawling cemetery. In-
volved histories of famous fam-
ilies can be derived from inscrip-
tions on the gravestone's gleam-
ing marble or sandstone surfaces.
Persons even come at night, their
mission abetted by the infrequent
moon and helpful fireflies.
The Clements Memorial Li-
brary is another spot infused
with historical interest. The
somewhat foreboding interior is
often visited during the day-
after closing hours te cool lan-
guid pillars of the exterior serve
as signposts for intellectual
trysts.

Other such campus landmarks
are The Rackham School of Grad-
uate Studies, Burton Tower, the
General Library, Romance Lan-
guages Bldg. and many other
places noted for their isolated dig-
nity.

THE MICHIGAN Stadium is in-
terestinj to visit after the pande-
monium of the game has died
down and only a stray cleaning
attendant is around. Even a
smaller site such as Ferry Field
manages to convey the atmosphere
of suspended isolation.
Then for the culture-conscious
there is not only the Alumni
Memorial Hall Museum which
closes at 5 p.m. but the many
colorful painting and sculpture
rooms of the School of Archi-
tecture and Design which are
open at all times.
Students fortunate enough to
own automobiles often leave the
bounds of the fair campus and
explore the beautiful Michigan
countryside and homes. Many of
these spend much time stopping
beside unnoticed landmarks, and
for many hours absorbing the
otherwise inaccessible culture
around.
There is so much to see.

LIGHTING UP-One of the many flaming torches used to light up last night's pep rally parade
passes by a throng of students. Led by the Michigan Marching Band, the rollicking procession wound
its way down State St. to Ferry Field where it urged the Wolverine's to "Beat State" today.
