OLD MAN RIVER HAS QUIT ROLLING: This desolate scene shows how the usually popular municipal bathing beach on the Huron River appears when the river bed is exposed. The Detroit Edison Co. emptied the water to permit repairs on the Argo dam, and the city is taking advantage of the occasion by spending $1,000 to improve the beach. The view here is taken from the east side of the river.

Sitting in the sun along the edge of the Huron River at the Argo dam is Mrs. Henry Lou Owens of 1253 N. Main St., who is cleaning "a mess of greens," she has just gathered nearby. The greens are not, in this case, dandelions, but a variety of watercress which make fine eating, according to Mrs. Owens. She advises boiling them with a dab of salt pork or bacon.

Artist's Touch on North Side: This striking aerial photograph by Dale Fisher, taken on Ann Arbor's north side, has a certain purposeful artistry about it, as the sweeping lines of rivers, railroads and highways combine with other features -- natural and man-made -- into an eye-catching design. Curving from left to right across the picture are the double tracks of the New York Central. Immediately above them is N. Main St. The Ann Arbor Railroad intersects both after crossing the river just to the right of Argo Dam. The tanks in lower left belong to the Michigan Consolidated Gas. Co.
