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.

The new Clinton Elementary School, under construction since the fall of 1966, is shown here nearing completion. The school is located at the intersection of Stone School Rd. and I-94. The top photo shows one of the entranceways to the brick school, while the bottom photo pictures one of the kindergarten classrooms, with sinks in the background and coat racks to the left. Clinton was scheduled to open in September of 1967, but various strikes delayed its opening. According to Planner-Expediter Sooren Gozmanian, classes will begin Monday morning, Dec. 4.
