Recreation Building is Ready: The new U-M Central Campus Recreation Building in center of photograph was recently completed and is ready for students. Attached to the Margaret Bell swimming pool building for women at right, it is available for use by both men and women. The building contains handball and basketball courts, an indoor running track and other recreational and sport facilities. Project budget for the facility was $3.9 million, according to Wilbur K. Pierpont, U-M vice president and chief financial officer. A similar, but smaller recreation building with a project budget of $1.9 million has also just been completed on the North campus and is ready for use by returning students. The building on Washtenaw is on the site of the former Women's Athletic Building which was torn down to make way for the new structure.

SITE OF U-M WOMEN'S ATHLETIC BUILDING: The area outlined by the dashes bounded on three sides by S. Forest Ave., Geddes Ave. and N. University Ave., is the site of the University's projected $2,500,000 women's athletic plant which will be constructed "in the near future." A unit containing the long-awaited coed swimming pool will be built first, with the gymnasium unit following when funds become available. The project is being financed by profits from the University's intercollegiate athletic program. The aerial photograph looks west toward the campus with Forest Hill Cemetery and Stockwell Hall in the foreground. Just across S. Forest Ave. from the site, and a little to the north, is the University Museums Building.

Yesterday was house-moving day in Ann Arbor as three complete houses were trucked from their original locations to new sites. Here, two houses sold by the University to individuals make the turn from N. Fifth Ave. where the U-M will build a new women's athletic building. A third house was removed from the city's newly-acquired parking lot on N. Ashley St.
