By LOU SAUER
A quiet, dark-haired man in a
wheel chair spends his days in the
front of an Ann St. business office,
examining and repairing watches
for Ann Arborites.
William Gasper has been handi-
capped for eight years, since an
accident in the small tube-f abri-
cation plant he was supervising
crippled him.
Since then, he has been "in and
out of hospitals - more in than
out," he says. He estimates that
he has spent not more than a total
of three years "on the outside"
since his accident.
In spite of this, he attended
school at the Woodrow Wilson Re-
habilitation Center in Stratton,
Va., learned the art of watch re-
pair ,and has set himself up in
business.
Smiliing, he explains that his
business is "horology". "But you
can settle for watches," he adds.
Gasper, as in a large percentage
of localites, is being hit hard by
the housing shortage.
Harder for Him;
"It's even more difficult forI
me," he explains, "because I have
to have a room on the first level."
At present, he is living in Pem-
berton - Welsh, a dormitory for
people connected with University
Hospital.
"They are letting me stay there
purely out of kindness, because I
was last released from the Hospi-
tal in March. However, I have
to move as soon as I can find
something."
Gasper almost, but not quite,

JACK-
WE BB
As PETE KELLY lr

found a place to live a few months
ago. The location of the house
was ideal, and there was an empty
room that would have been easily
accessible to him in his wheel-
chair. But there was a catch,
The woman wno owned the
house had had a crippled husband
who died just two years ago. The
sight of Gasper in his wheel chair
brought back_ too many painful
memories, and before the arrange-
ments were completed the woman
was forced to back out.
Sitting in his little "workshop,"
Gasper is cheerful about his situa-
tion. "My business isn't exactly
booming right now, but it's been
picking up fairly steadily since the
students returned."
Surprisingly enough, Gasper has
had little trouble finding employ-
ment since his accident. We work-
ed at University Hospital in the
instrument repair division before
he struck out completely on his
own.
Self-Employment Best
"I always did repair in my room

at. night, and since my last re-
lease from the hospital I decided
that self-employment would be
the best deal for me.
He said that because of an in-
fection in his hip (the reason for
his confinement tothe wheel
chair) he has to take off work
occasionally, and that by work-
ing for himself he eliminates the
difficulties of arranging for time
off.
A year ago, he bought a car
with hand controls, and he is
quick to say that he has "no dif-
ficulty getting around."

PETERSBURG, Ind. )-The
Petersburg Press was sold Thurs-
day to a new corporation headed
by Harold L. Hargis, editor of the
Rockport Journal.
Leonard C. F e n d w i c h, who
bought the newspaper three years
ago, will go to San Diego, Calif.,
in October.
Hargis' son, Jerry, took over
management of the paper.

The breaking up of the surfac-
ing of U.S. 52 in southern Marion
County and on Ind. 43 south of
Greencastle was blamed by some
sources on faulty application and
by others on heavy rains falling
while it was being applied.
A statement by Virgil Smith,
State Highway Commission chair-
man, said heavy rains were the
chief cause of the breaking up.
Lloyd E. Peindexter, maintenance
superintendent, said faulty appli-
cation affected the U.S. 52 stretch.
"It's not a good job," Peindext-
er said after inspecting the mile
long portion of U.S. 52.
Smith's statement said the two
locations would be resurfaced
again.
