New Front
The Virginian Restaurant,

Complete rebuilding of the
front of the restaurant is nec-

in the forward part of the
Wiring, which started the fire,
will have to be replaced, and
the floor itself must be rebuilt.
Water damage to refrigeration
equipment will amount to "four
or five hundred dollars," Tib-
bals said.
"It's rather ironical," Tib-
bals commented. "We'd just
finished a new front on the
restaurant the day of the fire."

door to the Virginian, has been

In order to train Latin American
teachers to handle social and ed-

the standard of living in underde-

set up a Fundamental Education
Center at Patzcuaro, Mexico.
As part of the University's pro-
gram in comparative education, a
summer workshop directed by
Prof. Claude Eggertsen of the edu-
cation school studied the training
and objectives of the UNESCO
teaching program.
At the Center, about one hun-
dred professional people are giv-
en specialized training. They will
return to staff centers in their
countries which will teach people
how to take education to others in
remote areas.
Study Techniques and Skills
Professional people at the Cen-
ter, divided into groups, are taught
techniques used in handling rural
economy, h e a 1 t h, recreation,.

Such things as tribal traditions,

Prof. Eggertsen spoke of two
limitations the UNESCO education
center has to meet.
First, the teachers have to be
careful how they introduce reforms
and a whole new way of life to
people in underdeveloped areas.
"Second," Prof. Eggertsen con-
tinued, the teachers have to con-
sider how deeply village traditions
and religious practices affect the
everyday life of the native.
Introduce Changes
"Sometimes it is very difficult to
introduce a change where tradi-
tions strongly influence the na-
tive," Prof. Eggertsen added.
Despite these limitations, Prof.
Eggertsen believes the willingness
to help other people is a major
step towards improving their liv-
ing standards.
UNESCO plans to set up similar

training centers for people to learn
how to improve conditions in un-
derdeveloped areas.
A training school for people in
the Middle East area has been es-
tablished in Egypt.

Growing t
Building Boom Continues;
Area Up 56% Over 1946
Ann Arbor is one of the fastest-growing cities in Michigan, and
it's getting bigger all the time.
"As of today, I don't know what's going to stop it," city Planning
Director Ray Eastman said recently. Only war or depression could stop
the city's present rate of growth from continuing, he said.
When quoting figures, Eastmanis careful to specify "as of yes-
terday." This month the city grew some more with the annexation of
two properties. Today's figure may be different.
Since 1950 Ann Arbor has grown to 129 percent of its area then.
The city's present size of 60742 acres is 156 per cent of the 1946 figure.
.. 5000 More
In population Ann Arbor's growth has been causing surprises, too.
The 1950 census set the city's total at 48,000 persons, including Uni-
versity students. Five thousand more people have been added to that
figure among townspeople alone, City Clerk Fred Looker estimates
from new water and sewer connections.
Among Michigan towns, Ann Arbor is probably second in area
,r growth, yielding honors only to Midland, Eastman said. Midland re-
cently annexed most of its township, whereas Ann Arbor growth has
been gradual,
Most of recent annexations have been requested by builders plan-
ning developments outside current city limits. They want to receive
the benefits of the city's sewer and water systems, as well as police and
fire protection.
In 1954 alone 579 acres were added. All that property as well as
some of the more recently annexed land has been or is being improved.
Residential construction is greatest on the southwest edge of
town. "It's the only place there's land cheap enough," is the way one
builder explained it. Muddy-footed workmen are building subdivision
after subdivision in that area.
Cause and Result
The construction boom is both the cause and the result of Ann
Arbor's growth. Business has sensed the lack of available land and the
value of new markets opening up on the outskirts of town.
"The community all around here is growing," the manager of a
chain grocery store which recently opened near the city limits said.
"It's a nice busy intersection and
we're doing good business right
from the start."
Story by "It's working out beautifully,"
PETE ECKSTEI N said the representative of an Ann
Arbor bank, discussing its new
branch far from the business dis-
Photos by trict of town.
t in Ann JOH N H I RTZ EL "The bank is fulfilling a need
for a tremendous number of new
residents." The drive-in arrange-
ment, one of two in the city, is
S: : : i"very popular with customers," he
said. "We're watching things very
closely" for new population trends
SO to see whether they warrant fur-
ther outward expansion.
New High School
Not to be outdone, the schools
are following and leading the
trend outward. A multi-million
dollar high school, planned for op-
eration in 1956, is being built near
the Michigan Stadium.
"It's the only place you could lo-
cate it," Superintendent of Schools
Jack Elzay said. "There's no avail-
-~ ~.. ~ ~ , s.. .* .able space in the center of town."
;As for the transportation problem,
"I hope the city will improve serv-
ice tremendously" in response to a
growing need in the area near the
school, he said.
A somewhat controversial out-
e of several businesses which have branches growth of all this expansion is
r of town. winding streets, now quite common
in outlying areas. As Planning Di-
rec-or Eastman explains it, it's a
" "riatter of taste."
The curving streets were plan-
ned on the assumption that they
"improve the stability of property
Frvalues," he said, both from the
standpoint of beauty and safety.
He cited experiences in some cit-
ies planned in the "gridiron" pat-
tern. Residential streets were be-
ing used by through traffic avoid-
_',fing main arteries, and the situa-
tion led authorities to erect barri-
cades to prevent it, he said.
