Library Hours
Revision Still
Very Tentative
Plans for extending the propos-
ed fall library hours were still in
a highly tentative stage this week.
According, to Student Legisla-
ture President Len Wilcox, '52,
University officials have not made
a definite "promise" to lengthen
the hours as was reported to The
Daily Tuesday.
They have only indicated that
they will look into the matter,
Wilcox said.
Because of budget restrictions,
a 40,000 man-hour cut in library
service is now scheduled for next
fall. Library authorities have said
this would force the Library to
curtail service and probably keep
the building shut down on Sun-
When the proposed cuts were
first announced last semester
the SL unanimously voted to
send Library Direetor Warner G.
Rice a letter of protest.
Wilcox has since been negotia-
ting with authorities in hopes of1
effecting some change in the sche-1
duled service restrictions.

First Fresh Air Camp
Session To Close Today

More than 100 children from
the Detroit area will return to
their homes today when the first
four-week session of the Univer-
Plan Started
A "share the book" plan has
)een started in the School of Edu-
cation with professors providing
the books and students doing
most of the sharing.
At the urging of Dean J. B. Ed-
monson, faculty members have
been clearing their shelves of
books, bulletins and reprints deal-
ing with educational topics. The
items are placed on tables and in-
terested students are invited to
help themselves.
Dean Edmonson said he hoped
the idea of sharing books would
be taken up elsewhere, especially
by various community organiza-

THE CAMP is maintained to
give help to boys with special be-
havioral problems and to provide
a training ground for students,
both graduate and undergraduate,
who are majoring in education,
sociology and psychology.
These students act as counsel-
lors during the two month-long
sessions which begin the first
day of summer school each
Counsellors are allotted six cre-
dits toward their degree for work-
ing with the children.
Eighty percent of the student-
counsellors attend the University
of Michigan, the remainder come
from schools as far away as Cali-
fornia and Stanford.
The counsellors eat and sleep
with the children and partici-
pate in their daily round of ac-
In the evening, each counsellor
writes a full report on the behav-
ior of every boy in his or her par-
ticular cabin.
ALTHOUGH THE counsellor is;
the basic unit, the camp has a
complete staff of pediatricians, so-
cial case workers and child psy-
chologists who are ready for im-
mediate assistance in case any
difficulties arise.
The camp, which is on Patter-
son Lake near Pinckney, Michi-
gan, was founded in 1924 by a
religious club for children, head-
ed by Louis Reimani It was lat-
er taken over by the University.
"The Fresh Air Camp is the kind
of place where people who want
to work in human behavior get the
opportunity," according to Prof.
William Morse of the education
school, who has been the director
of the camp for the past six years.

It's off to the big city and a
visit to the Detroit Institute of
Arts today for public school art
teachers enrolled in the new sum-

FIELD TRIPS consisting of
tours to Greenfield Village, Cran-

City are part of the program of
this six week course designed to
"give Michigan art teachers a
chance to meet and extend their

The faculty consists of Prof.
Weddige and Nicholas Marsican-

Immediate acceptance of this
course was not expected by ad-
ministrators of the S u m m e r

School due to its unique nature,
but Prof. George M. McEwen, Se-
cretary of the Summer Session re-
ported that "rather wide interest
was expressed by many who were
unable to come."
This interest insures that the
course will be repeated next year

summer school, Prof. Weddige

Planners Predict City's
Daily Traffic to Double

Every day will be "Football Sat-
urday" in terms of traffic in the
Ann Arbor area by 1970, County

rickson has reported to the Plan-
ning Commission.

Nineteen teachers from France
will arrive at the University Sun-
day for a summer of study.
The six women and 13 men are
teachers of English or American
civilization in the French lyceum,
comparable to the twelfth grade
and junior college level in the
United States.
While at the University they will
take courses in American litera-
ture, history and government. A
basic orientation and course in
linguistics will be given the
French teachers at the English
Language Institute. Special lec-
turers about educational leaders
and educational philosophy have
been arranged for the group.

dollars will have to be spent here
for highway improvements.
PART OF the cost will cover-
construction of three bypasses
around Ann Arbor-M-112 (the
Detroit-Chicago Expressway), U.S.
12 and US-23.
Traffic on Washtenaw Road
(M-17) is expected to climb
from 16,000 daily to 26,000, the
equivalent of hte traffic on this
road on a "sellout football Sat-
urday," while the same period
will see Ann Arbor daily traffic
doubled, the report continued.
As Detroit-area industry contin-
ues its westward movement, there
are new outlooks predicted in oth-
er fields.
Population in the Ann Arbor-
Ypsilanti area will total 170,000;
thirty-seven new school build-
ings must be built to care for
the rising number of school chil-
dren; 10,000 new homes will
have to be constructed and at
least 4 million dollars spnet for
sewer and water conduits.
Action on the basis of this re-
port is already being planned by
at least two county school districts
who are shaping their expansion
to coincide with the predicted po-
pulation growth.
