Wines School Completed: The 38x67-foot auditorium (top) [this photo] of the new, $811,000 Wines Elementary School at Newport and Sunset Rd., features indirect lighting and folding doors which can be pushed back to accommodate overflow audiences in a 25-foot-wide lobby. The auditorium leads to the library. Attractive display cases and glass-backed book shelves are visible at the library's entrance. A typical classroom (bottom view) is 28x29 feet in size, plus coat storage space. Each classroom is self-contained and features two skylights with plastic domes to increase lighting. Glass panels one-third of the way down from hallway ceilings also help brighten the classrooms. The new school will house up to 600 pupils when it is opened in September. A spokesman for Charles W. Lane & Associates of the Ann Arbor area, architect for both Wines and the new Dicken School, said Wines School is complete except for hanging classroom wardrobe doors and some finish grading, seeding, and cleanup around the school grounds.

Construction Slowed: Construction progress on Ann Arbor public schools' new, $810,717 18-classroom southwest elementary shown here was virtually halted today -- after many construction men left to go deer hunting. Donald D. MacMullen, associate architect for Charles W. Lane, who blueprinted the school, said the workers who remained at construction jobs were shifted to the Newport Rd. School. Both schools are being built by the Henry W. deKoning Construction Co. Some mechanical work is going on at the southwest school west of the end of Coronado Dr. An anticipated two-week absence of some workers is not expected to delay construction of either school beyond completion dates between next May and July. MacMullen said the Newport Rd. school is 16 per cent ahead of its construction schedule, while the southwest school is 14 per cent ahead of schedule.
