Kindergartner Thomas Gutow chats with his friend Waltstine Perry at a pot luck supper held Thursday night in Perry's honor at Newport Elementary School. More than 300 Newport staff members, graduates, students, and their parents attended the supper. Perry, 63, a custodian for the school district since 1953, retires in June. Before transferring to Newport when it opened nine years ago, Perry, called "Pudd" by friends and relatives, worked at Slauson, Jones and Bader schools. The school employee keeps track of many of those he knew as youngsters. "A lot of them did pretty good for themselves," he said.

Decision Coming On Jones School Playground: The Ann Arbor Board of Education will decide the fate of the Jones School playground (bottom picture) at its meeting Wednesday. The playground may become a parking lot to accommodate employees of the public school facilities presently housed at Perry School. Some citizens have urged the board to maintain and improve the playground. Perry has been sold to the University and must be vacated by Aug. 1. The facilities there will be transferred to Jones. Use of the farmers' market parking lot (foreground, bottom picture) has been considered as a possible solution to the problem. Other solutions suggested include the use of the school's front lawn (top picture) as either a play or parking area.
