Construction Progresses: Two of the six buildings which make up the 97-apartment Nob Hill project under construction at the southeast corner of W. Stadium and Pauline Blvds. have been roughed-in, and exterior brickwork is expected to begin next week. This aerial photograph taken by Dale Fisher of The News staff depicts the various construction stages of the $705,000 project. William F. Elder of Detroit, Nob Hill Builder, said the first apartments will be ready for occupancy in April. The completion date is set for September. Rental prices have not yet been set. The buildings will have hipped-roofs.

NEITHER RAIN NOR STRAIN: News Photographer Dale Fisher's picture of 14-year-old Dale Schultz reaching for the family mail from their box at Sauer and Saline-Milan Rds. suggests a slight padding out of the slogan which inspires all U. S. postal personnel to their best efforts. "Neither rain nor sleet nor gloom of night (nor even a precarious grab from a balanced bike) shall stay these carriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

WHAT'S A LADDER TO HER: Just a nice passageway and she would have gone through. But Mama said no, and she went around.

AH, THAT'S BETTER: Mrs. E. E. Cribley of 7105 Dexter Rd., isn't afraid of walking under a ladder and proves it. Mrs. Clare Titsworth of Pontiac walks around. But that doesn't mean she's superstitous. Maybe it wasn't bad luck but falling debris she feared.

NO CHOICE FOR HER: We don't know whether Mrs. Edward Worsham of 1019 Pine Tree Dr. avoids black cats and ladders either. She looks brave here, but she had no choice. There wasn't room for 16-month-old Cathy's stroller anywhere but under the ladder. Well, even the Gallup poll has weak points.

TROUBLE: And then there is another way of doing it, but this youth probably wouldn't recommend it after wrestling that parking meter. Well, the experiment is over. And what did it prove? That people are easy-going and goodatured, or else just too preoccupied with other things to make an issue of a sidewalk impediment that obviously could have been avoided.

ARE WE SHEEP? Today is Friday the 13th, and it seemed like a good time to show the results of a test made the other day by News Photographers Pete Mann and Dale Fisher. Some men were working on the side of the State Savings Bank on W. Washington St. near Main. Their equipment didn't block the sidewalk -- not until after Mann and Fisher had rearranged it. Then it was a case of going under a ladder or squeezing through a narrow space between a parking meter and a car at the curb. Look at them line up to avoid the ladder! And without even a dirty look for the workmen!
