University undergraduate stu-
dents, during the 1955-56 academic1
year, again tied their record grade
point average of 2.58.
According to Edward G. Groes-
beck, Director of the Office of
Registration and Records, this fig-
ure was first attained in 1951-52.
Women students, with a 2.69
average, bettered the 1954-55 ef-
fort to establish a new high for
them. The men's average remained
constant from the 1954-55 term
at 2.52. Freshmen gained .03 on the
previous year's average to estab-
lish their mark at 2.40.
Further breakdown of the fig-
ures included in the report from
the Office of Registration and
Records reveals that sorority'
women attained an. average of
2.70 as compared to those living in
residence halls with 2.63.
The fraternity average, the only
classification which dropped down
from it's previous year's academic
standing, achieved a 2.48 average.
Leading academically on cam-
pus is Martha Cook, which took
top honors with 3.07. In men's
residence halls Kelsey of South
Quad had a 2.67 average, enabling
them to emerge first in their div-
lsion. Sigma Delta Tau placed'
first among sororities with an av-
erage of 2.80 and Phi Epsilon Pi

Ann Arbor City Council took
significant steps yesterday to hold
the interest of Parke, Davis & Co.
in establishing a $10,000,000 midi-

oratory on North Campus.
The council decided to pay
Parke, Davis' share of the water
installation costs if such action
was necessary to insure the com-
pany's locating at North Campus.
"Parke, Davis is getting the im-
pression, unfortunately, that we
don't want to do anything to help
them locate here, and this is bad,"
Ann Arbor Mayor William E.
Brown, Jr. said in explaining the
purpose for the special meeting of
Difficulties have arisen in dis-

Though initial feeling of the
Council was merely to make a
"fair estimate" to Parke, Davis on
what their share of the expense
would be, they decided to make a
more liberal offer when Council-
man Arthur P. Moore said the city
"would lose Parke, Davis com-
,pletely as a customer unless we
do even more than our share to
get them established here."
Mayor Brown indicated the Uni-
versity would be willing to pay
their own share because "Where
is the University five years from
today if Parke, Davis or other
similar companies don't go to

would pay 75 per cent of the $900,-
000 water installation bill.
Willing to Pay $60,000
The University is willing to pay
only $60,000 to $100,000, accord
ing to city officials.
City Administrator Guy Larco
and Mayor Brown formulated a
resolution which will be presented
to the University today and to
Parke, Davis later this week.
The resolution states:
"Resolved: that the City of Ann
Arbor intends to develop the util-
ities in the North Camius area so

tution that desires to locate in

and sewage facilities and that the
cost of providing facilities for
these research institutions will be
