NO HESITATION HERE: This pedestrian surveyed the situation and chose the ladder even though the curb was clear at the time.

TROUBLE: And then there is another way of doing it, but this youth probably wouldn't recommend it after wrestling that parking meter. Well, the experiment is over. And what did it prove? That people are easy-going and goodatured, or else just too preoccupied with other things to make an issue of a sidewalk impediment that obviously could have been avoided.

ARE WE SHEEP? Today is Friday the 13th, and it seemed like a good time to show the results of a test made the other day by News Photographers Pete Mann and Dale Fisher. Some men were working on the side of the State Savings Bank on W. Washington St. near Main. Their equipment didn't block the sidewalk -- not until after Mann and Fisher had rearranged it. Then it was a case of going under a ladder or squeezing through a narrow space between a parking meter and a car at the curb. Look at them line up to avoid the ladder! And without even a dirty look for the workmen!

PARTING OF THE WAYS: When a feller's mother chooses a path that presents obvious obstacles, there's nothing for him to do but stay to the right and be right, even if it means going under a ladder. That's just what Vladimir Bibicoff of 2820 Strommel, Ypsilanti, is doing here.
