WAITING'S COZY: These school children are reasonably comfortable while waiting for the school bus these cold mornings, thanks to Paul Augustine of 250 Waters Rd., Pittsfield township. He built the playhouse-sized shelter on his property at the corner of S. Main Rd. so that the neighborhood's students may be out of the elements.

The energy needed for an impromptu parade would seem hardly worth the efforts to adults on these hot summer days, but it's a different story with the younger set. About 20 youngsters in the Kenwood Ave. area dressed up in costume, decorated their bicycles and marched around the neighborhood. Despite all the convention activity this week, the parade apparently had no political overtones.

SWIMS A MILE BACK STROKE: Peter Fries (above), six-year-old son of Prof. and Mrs. Charles C. Fries of Overridge Dr., is undoubtedly the world's champion back-stroker for his age. In a time trial this week in the Michigan pool, Peter swam a mile on his back in the excellent time of 38 minutes and 43 seconds. A mile is 70 lengths of the pool and 10 yards. He also swims the free-style, the butterfly breast-stroke and does about six dives. Peter learned to swim and walk at the same time - when he was one year old. Don't think that Matt Mann isn't keeping an eye on the youngster, who is the brother of Capt. Chuck Fries of the 1944 Wolverine swimming team.
