INTERESTED BUT CAUTIOUS: Three-year-old Benjamin Stapish of Chelsea came a long way to see Santa in yesterday's parade through Ann Arbor streets. He is holding tightly to his mother's coat as the parade approaches.

SANTA AND HIS DEER: Yesterday's spring-like weather didn't spoil St. Nick's visit to the city. His sleigh was equipped with wheels for just such emergencies, and he rolled merrily along his route, so rapidly that many children didn't get out of school in time to see the parade. Harassed parents then hurried to Jones School to give their disappointed children a look at Santa and the animals. There they were caught in a jam of people with the same thing in mind. A visit to the igloo pacified those small enough to crawl through the openings provided for that purpose.

DANIEL BOONE, JR.: Jeffrey Eldred, one and a half years old, may be pretty young to know about Santa, but he looks as though he's willing to learn as he watches the parade with his father, K. G. Eldred of 411 Nob Hill Pl.

UNCLE SAM AND RUDOLPH: Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a special place in the parade, and he was the center of attraction at this point on State St. where the parade made a circle over a section of N. University Ave. and returned to the main business section. Uncle Sam led the deer. Small children crawled through Santa's igloo at Jones School after the parade and saw how Christmas toys are made. The parade was sponsored by the city's merchants.
