TO AID PARKING PROBLEM:
Carport Addition Under Construction
By MARY ANN THOMAS
Ann Arbor will soon have 178
more parking spaces available for
That is the capacity of the
addition now being constructed on
the Maynard Street city carport.
At its present size, the carport
provides room for 422 vehicles,
but the addition will bring this
total capacity up to 600.
Started in the latter part of
March, construction of the addi-
tional parking space was supposed
to be completed by the end of
June, according to the contract.
Work 60% Finished
However, officials of the Colvin,
Robinson and Associates, architec-
- ural designers of the construction,
report that as of yesterday the
addition was only about 60% fin-
The job of building the carport
addition was contracted to the
Kurtz Building Co. of Ann Arbor.
John Goslee, superintendent of
the construction job for the Kurtz
Company, reports that a strike by
the reinforcing steel workers set
work back "about three weeks."
He expects the job to be finished
by the middle of August.
Built of Poured Concrete
Since the building is constructed
of poured concrete, reinforcing
steel is necessary for building the
framework mold into which the
concrete is poured. Working out
of Detroit, the steelworkers struck
in order to get more money for
Total cost of the addition was
figured at $273,433, but due to the
delay of the strike, cost may in-
crease before the job is completed.
The construction will be finan-
ced out of the Ann Arbor parking
fund. Money for 'the fund is ob-
The University saluted the
Philippines on the tenth anniver-
sary of its independence yesterday
by sending two cablegrams.
President Harlan H. Hatcher,
who sent the cablegrams on behalf
of the University, cabled to Ramon
Magsaysay, president of the
Philippine Islands, "Through your
accomplishments you have demon-
strated your appreciation of free-
dom and have attained a high
place among the nations of the

Independence in the Philippines
was declared on July 4, 1946.
The second cablegram was sent
to Dr. Vidal A. Tan, president of
the University of the Philippines,
and read, "Our two universities
have long had common objectives
and friendly and abiding relation-
ships which we value highly.
"As we close the special pro-
gramn of the Institute of Public
Administration, we express our
appreciation for this happy, suc-
cessful relationship and anticipate
your further progress."
The first institute of Public Ad-
ministration in the Far East was
established by the two schools and
the four-year project contract was

GE'ITYSBURG, Pa. (4P)-The
temporary White House announc-
ed yesterday that Vice President
Richard Nixon will fly to Formosa
July 7 to visit Generalissimo,
The Chinese Nationalist Presi-
dent invited Nixon to Taipeh, and
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
asked Nixon to accept while on a
visit to the Far East.
President press secretary James
C. Hagerty told reporters this will
require some adjustment in Nix--
on's schedule and the changes will
be announced later.
"The vice president," Hagerty
said, "will have the opportunity to
exchange views with President
Chiang and other officials of the
Chinese government and to obtain
an impression of the progress
made on Taiwan since the vice
president's last visit there in 1953.
He will arrive in Taipeh about the
7th, flying in from Saigon".-
Nixon's trop to Formosa will fol-
low a visit to Manila for the cele-
bration tomorrow of the 10th an-
niversary of Philippine indepen-
dence and a visit to Saigon for the
second anniversary of the Vietna-i

More students are turning to
the teaching profession in the
University, according to Willard C.
Olson, dean of the School of Edu-
"In view of the state and na-
tional shortagt of teachers it is
encouraging to note that 22 per
cent more initial certificates for
teaching were awarded from the
University in the year ending June
30, 1956, than in the previous
year," Dean Olson said. "The in-
crease in provisional certificates
was from 480 to 586."
Dean Olson said that evidence
for greater permanence in the pro-
fession of teaching was indicated
by a jump of 25 per cent in per-
manent certificates basedupon

To Aid Parking Shortage
Built by Ann Arbor to help
alleviate the parking shortage, the
Maynard Street carport is one of
two such parking structures in
the city. The first city carport is
located downdown on W. Liberty.
The main building was built in
1952 and completed in 1953.
When finished the carport will
have two more levels for use by
Ann Arbor and University motr-
ists. This will bring the total
number of levels for parking to
The city is also planning the
construction of another carport
in the near future in the vicinity
of the College of Engineering.
Library Given Washington Letters
A gift of fifty Revolutionary
War period autographs, including
13 letters by George Washington,
five in his own hand, was pre-
sented recently to Clements Libr-
ary by James S. Schoff, a former
Among the letters was one writ-
ten during the disheartening re-
treat across New Jorsey late in
1776 to the mother of a young
Pennsylvania officer, Alexander
Graydon, who had been captured
by the British.
He wrote: "Your letter to your
Son (Inclosed to me) went in the
day after it came to my hands, by
a Flag which happened to be going
to New York.
"I am very sorry tor the mis-
fortune of your Son's Captivity
but these are accidents which
must be experienced, & felt in
War. Col. Coldwalader who has
been suffered to return to Phila-
delphia would be able to inform
you of your Son's health. Any hard
money which you may be able to
forward to me or Mr. Tilkhman
(who is of my Family) shall be
contrived to him by some means
or other. I am Madam Yr. Very
Two honorable mention awards
were given to The Michigan
Alumnus at the American Alumni
Council's 41st annual conference
at Indiana recently.
The first award was for featured
articles and the second was for
the manner in which The Alumnus
interpreted the University. Editor
Of the periodical which is pub-
lished by the Alumni Association
is T. Hawley Tapping.
Another letter expressing Wash-
ington's interest in his own econo-
mic domestic affairs read: "Are
there any crops of wheat for sale
in your neighborhood?
"I want to keep my mill employ-
ed in manufacturing this grain
and the millers who surround me,
more alert than I am, pick up all
the wheat in these parts before I
am scarcely thinking of purchas-
ing, although I am willing, and do
give, as good prices as they and
(in cases of credit) pay, I believe,
with more punctuality."
Washington's letters have sur-
vived through the years because
they were written on paper with
good rag content. They, in fact,
serve well to document the prob-
lems with which the great man
Concern Over Small-Pox
In these documents, Washing-
ton expressed concern on the
inoculation of the continental
and resolutions before Congress
army against Small-pox, on acts
concerning salaries for members
of the Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives, and on the establish-
ment of the post office.
The letters also indicate that he
was concerned over the question of
states' rights and sovereingnty be-
fore ratification of the Constitu-
tion and he wondered about the
possibilities of a war in Europe.
Included in the collection is a
letter written in 1788 by Martha
Washington expressing her sym-
pathy to the widow of a Revo-
lutionary War officer who was
seeking financial compensation
for the losses she suffered during
Also in the gift are letters from
Gen. Nathanael Greene, Gen. An-
thonny Wayne, Patrick Henry,
Gov. Benjamin Harrison, Gov.
Thomas Mifflin, Gen. Thomas
Sumter and others.
