ii*IT'S WORTH IT-Bargain Days in Ann Arbor attracteda wide variety of bargain hunters, including
the younger set whose "bargains" consisted of out-rate prices for the amusement-park rides settled

wait for tickets, for at long last, they can take an exciting whirl on a hot summer day. For the
"slightly older" set; merchants provided the attraction of a sports car display on State Street.

Traces to 'Reactionaries'
Miss Becker denied that the
Williams' administration has
failed, and charged that the cur-
rent tax woes can be traced to
the "barrier of the reactionary
GOP legislature."
However, Mrs. Edwards assailed
the administration, saying it has
issued "words, words, words,"
while action has been "very, very
slight."
She claimed- Gov. Williams is
snot "a full-time governor," but.
one who is "out campaigning and
going around the country.,"
Questions Program
If the governor has a "wonder-
ful" program, she asked, "why,
hasn't he ever brought it before
the public?,
Turning to the concept. of
partisan politics, Mrs. Edwards-
stressed "we t(Republicans and
Democrats) must ,be united. in
some of our goals or the state
would not continue to exist.
"We don'$ want to see the state
wiped off the map or forgotten,"
she said.

This summer thousands; of
American vacationers will drive
along modern highways which,
perhaps'unknown to them, were in
years past highways to history:
The Chisholm Trail .. . Boston
Post Road .. . The Santa Fe Trail
. Zane's Trace ... "El Camino
Real" The Oregon Trail. .
The Mohawk Trail.
In meny cases, highways follow
these trails that first opened up
the midlands and later the West
to the frontiersmen; that helped
make the Southwest "cattle coun-
try"; that carried Indians, pioneers
and gold seekers.
Here is a description of some
of the roads and trails, why they
were important in the past, and
the highways that now follow
them.
BOSTON POST ROAD-First
an Indian trail, it later became the
.King's, Highway- and the principal
thoroughfare between Boston and
New Haven, Conn. It took the
name of Boston Post Road in the
1670's. Gradually the road ex-
tended south, to New York, then
to Philadelphia, Williamsburg,
Charleston and eventually into
Florida.
The road's importance grew after
Benjamin Franklin became deputy
postmaster general in 1737, and
mail service was extended to the
seaboard. It was improved during
the Revolutionary War to handle
the mail stages and movement of
colonial and British troops.
During the 1780's, the road be-
came the main artery of commerce
between Massachusetts and Vir-
ginia. United States Highways 17
and 1 follow the Boston Post
Road's route part of the distance.-
ZANE'S TRACE--' Most of the
pioneers who first settled in Ken-
tucky, Indiana and Illinois traveled
Zane's Trace, which Congress au-
thorized Ebenezer Zane to build
in 1796 from Wheeling, W. Va., to
what is now Maysville, Ky.
Part of the Trace now is 'along
United States Highway 40. It was
the route followed by Washington's
soldiers who chose to take free
land offered them in the midlands.
EL CAMINO REAL-"The Royal
Highway," on the West Coast, is
one of the nation's oldest road-
ways, dating back to 1769. Spanish
explorer.Portala is believed by his-
torians to have been the first per-
son to use it. Today, it is United
States Highway 101.
With Portala was a Jesuit priest,

Foreign students attending the
summer session each year usually

tions' totals include Venezuela with
60, Japan with 49, Turkey with 43,'
the Philippines with 39, Iran and
