WHY THE DELAY? "Time flies," think Gretchen Slenger (left), of 4 Fair Oaks Pkwy., and Sharen and Harry Kelly, of 1158 Baldwin Ave., as they wait impatiently while the power shovel prepares the wading pool at Burns Park. The wading pool is being constructed as a civic project at the expense of the Ann Arbor Kiwanis Club, as is another pool at West Side Park. The pools will serve to relieve the no-swimming situation Ann Arbor kiddies have come to realize since the pollution of the Huron river due to war-created sewage conditions at Dexter.
