What sort of place is Ann Ar-'
First and foremost, it's a uni-
versity town. There's some truth
in student comments that without
the University, Ann Arbor would
have fewer than 5,000 residents.
But the city is trying to become
more than "just a university
town." One major industry, a
camera company, is already lo-
cated here, and two others have
made, plans to move plants to the
city in the near future.
At present, 54 firms, with 6,000
employes, manufacture various
items in the city. These are chief-
ly light manufacturing industries,
making such goods' as surgical
and scientific instruments, elec-
tronic devices, and automobile ac-
cessories. University facilities have
been a major factor in attracting
these firms to Ann Arbor.
Ann Arbor is growing. Physical--
ly, the city annexed both East Ann
Arbor and Pittsfield Village in the
last year, greatly increasing both
its area and population. In addi-
tion, the expanding University en-
rollment is also adding to the pop-
ulation, which has increased 14,-
000 since 1950.
That Ann Arbor is a University
town can be seen from its cost of
living, which is as high as any
other city in the United States,
