Top State Off ieials Take
Note of weekend Deaths

LANSING WI)-Top state off i-
cials expressed grave concern yes-
terdiay over Michigan's high
Fourth of July traffic toll.
The state's weekend death count
reportedly was the worst in the
Gov. Williams said he was
"highly concerned." He asked state
police and highway department
heads for prompt analyses of the

Plans Seven
Arena Plays
New officers, plans for rental
of the Masonic Temple Auditorium
and a series of seven arena style
plays for the 1954-55 season were
announced today by the Ann Ar-
bor Dramtic Arts Center, Inc.
In a planning meeting the group
started negotiations for hiring a
professional director and business
manager. Tentative plans have
been made for the first play to be
staged in October, each play to
run Thursday through Sunday for
one month with the last play to be
staged in April. I
Yearly Budget
The yearly budget of $30,000
planned by the organization would
be used to hire the director, busi-
ness manager and professional
The arena style theater would
seat more than 300 persons, and
offices of the group would also be
on the main floor in the building.
During the day the Center would
offer programs in children's thea-
ter and dancing, and paintings and
work of local artists would be dis-
played in cooperation with the
Ann Arbor Art Association.
Continue Drive
The Center is continuing a drive
for $4,000 in gifts for a reserve
fund to underwrite initial costs
of the program, and $2,000 has
been subscribed to date.
New officers of the Center's
board of directors are Eugene B.

soaring holiday death count to
help map counter-measures.
The Associated Press count, ga-
thered by newspapers from law
enforcement officials, listed 34
traffic deaths.
Childs said the average highway
death toll in Michigan this year
was slightly more than five deaths
a day. He said the average went
up to eight per day over the week-
end of the Fourth.
Slight Increase
He said there was only a slight
increase in the number of fatal
accidents over the holiday but
that the number of deaths per
accident went up sharply.
By comparison, the Memorial
Day weekend saw 19 accidents
take only 20 lives.
Increased travel was declared
mainly responsible for the high
toll by Childs. He said Michigan
highways are reaching a "satura-
tion point" over holiday weekends.
Straits Traffic Up
Highway department figures
supported his contention. The de-
partment said that traffic across
the Straits of Mackinac over the
Fourth jumped 17 per cent this
year over last year.
State ferries carried 32,123 ve-
hiclese across the straits during
the five day period starting July
1 compared to 27,354 last year.
