A BIT OF PRIMPING: Thirteen-year-old Audrey Haab of Manchester didn't win the blue ribbon with her Guernsey heifer entry in yesterday's cattle judging at the Chelsea Community Fair but it wasn't for want of careful primping of her pet before the contest started. Even if it didn't win first honors the Guernsey looked mighty good to the judges - in such attractive company.

Area of Change: There have been many changes along E. Stadium Blvd. near Washtenaw Ave. since last year at this time, as this aerial photograph reveals. Nearly 40 homes have been built by the Slavik firm of Detroit in Ann Arbor Woods. To the right of the Howard Johnson restaurant, just off Stadium near the bottom, is the first unit under construction of a new motel. It will be the Lampost Motel and will house 34 rooms. Builders Roberts and Brown expect to expand it to 67 units in the future. Ann Arbor Woods eventually will include 300 houses, so it appears as if there will be more changed here long before next year at this time. This also is the arch of a proposed shopping center disputed in City council meetings.

College Heights Trial Delayed: The area outlined in this photograph is College Heights Subdivision No. 1 in western Ypsilanti township. Start of a $250,000 court trail to force Ypsilanti to extend city utilities to the area was delayed today as attorneys sought to reach last-minute agreement. The circuit court suit was brought by developers, who plan to build some 140 homes in vacant areas of the partly developed subdivision. It is bounded on the south (bottom, above) by Washtenaw Rd., the city-township boundary. Plantiffs in the case maintain the city is bound under a 1853 contract to provide water and sewer to the area.
