FIRST OF THE SEASON: This clump of crocuses on the south side of the Beal residence, 343 S. Fifth Ave., sprang into bloom under the warming influence of yesterday's sunny skies and 55-degree temperature. They were the season's first blossoms reported to The News, and their tidings of approaching spring were glad indeed.

In Natural Setting: Although the Ann Arbor Public Library is located in a downtown area at S. Fifth Ave. and E. William St., the inclusion of planting gardens on two levels provides a natural setting for the trim brick structure. The location is the site of the former Junius Beal home, for years an Ann Arbor landmark.
