By MARK READER

* * * *

Widened highways, barricaded
streets and lawns denuded of trees
to make way for pavement testify
to the summer boom in Ann Arbor
construction work.
New structures dot the local
scene, others are still in the build-
ing process and more on the ar-
chitects' drawing boards.
PARTS OF -Washtenaw Ave.
leading toward Stadium Blvd. have
been widened into a four-lane
highway.
Work on the project was
virtually abandoned last month
so laborers could concentrate on
the widening of Main St. to ac-
commodate the expected swell
of football game traffic.
The scarred, unfinished Wash-
tenaw job consisting of barricaded
excavations can still be seen.

Work on Ann Arbor's carport
between Maynard and E. William
continues. When completed the
structure will house 400 cars. A
slight storm brewed during the
sweltering months over the color
of bricks to be used1 on the struc-
ture-red won out.
THE CITY'S Fire Department
watched its new home completed
on Stadium Blvd. and has begun
to make arrangements for shift-
ing the focus of its activities. Fur-
ther out on the Boulevard behind
the Michigan Stadium, work has
just commenced on a new high
school.
Parking lots and streets in
the campus area were repaved
and S. University was widened
several feet. Religious groups
also joined the building furor.
A modernistic nunnery and
chapel nears completion on
Washtenaw and plans are un-
derway to construct a Mormon
Church.

-Daily-Don Campbell
WASHTENAW-The torn, gaping street is lit with flares warning
drivers entering the city of a danger area. Police have been
rigidly enforcing traffic regulations along the main thoroughfare.
fTHE CITYBEAT

Following several summer resig-
nations the Ann Arbor Police De-
partment has added six new offi-
cers to its law enforcement staff.
Notable among the neophites is
Kathryn D. Eichhorn, a 21 year
old Michigan State graduate,
named as the squad's sole police-
woman-.

The future also promises to be ** *
filled with building activity. A The University this summer ne-
new City Hall and an addition to gotiated with the Detroit Edison

Private business groups are also of a roadway connecting the pres-
carrying on extensive projects. A ent campus with the projected
new bank is almost finished and North Campus.
many of the local merchants have * * *

elling their shops. when scores of trees were

struck with Dutch Elm disease.
Local citizens and the city
bickered over who was to foot
the bill for the removal of the
infected elms.
The ill effects of the Kaiser-
Frazer lay-off at Willow Run were
considerably lessened when Gen-
eral Motors occupied part of the
shut-down factory following a
multi-million dollar fire at GM's
Livonia plant. Local auto em-
ployment once more began to
climb as a result.
A specially elected citizen's com-
mittee began investigating the ad-
visability of a city charter revi-
sion. The group will continue to
give its recommendations to city
officials at monthly meetings.
