HIGHER THAN THESE KNEES: Kenneth and Mark Nobilette, aged 6 months and almost 3, respectively, have the farmers' interests at heart as they check to see whether the corn in this Earhart Rd. field is "knee high by the Fourth of July." The plant they are measuring is up to anyone's knees, but in many fields corn growth has been delayed this year by the late spring. The boys are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas A. Nobilette.

CLOTHESLINES, BUT NO TREES: The peak-roofed housing units (top), latest to be erected at Willow Village, are generally well-tended and maintained. This view from the backyard of one row of units, looking toward the front porches of another, demonstrates the temporary nature of planning for the development. Note coal boxes and oil tanks near the front porches, the absence of natural foliage and the "community clothesline" in the backyard. Below is a view of older, flat-roofed apartment units in the so-called Clay Hill section of the Village. It emphasizes that the units were designed for temporary use and would deteriorate without constant maintenance.

SUNDAY DRIVERS: There are always loads of pleasant things to do when playmates come visiting the children of Dr. and Mrs. Gerald A. O'Connor of Saline Road. On Sunday afternoon, a favorite pastime is taking a pony cart ride down country lanes in a cart drawn by pony, "Topsy," with colt, "Ringo Starr," nearby. In the foreground (from left) are Jerry, Pat and Ann O'Connor and Cassie Mann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard J. Mann of Granger Avenue. Seated in the background (from left) are Cathy and Maureen O'Connor and Kathy DeVine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John DeVine of Granger Avenue. The two-wheeler governess' cart is 50 years old.
