COLD LICENSE BUYERS: This line of some 40 cold, and in many cases complaining, auto license plate buyers had formed by 9 a.m. today outside the Ann Arbor license sales office at 307 S. Fifth Ave. - a half hour after the office opened. With today and tomorrow left to buy 1957 plates before 1956 plates expire, the lines were expected to remain lengthy, with most persons in them spending substantial time outside. The small office can accommodate 10 to 15 persons inside at one time.

MOCK WAR STAGED MINUS PLANE: University ROTC students staged a mock war in Nichols Arboretum Saturday, despite the fact that the "battle" did not go off as scheduled. The white marks on the ground in the picture above are strips of cloth arranged as signals to an airplane, which was supposed to drop bags of flour as "bombs" on defending troops. The plane did not appear, however, the flight having been cancelled because of high winds. About 100 men, who will take charge of manned spring maneuvers, participated in the drill.

ACQUITTED OF KILLING OWNER: In a public trial, conducted with deadly seriousness, a jury of 12 men on the Isle of Jersey, acquitted the bull shown above, Brampton Beau, of killing his owner. The alternative was public execution. The bull recently arrived from the Isle by way of Chester, N. Y., at the Dhu Varren Farms, Whitmore Lake Rd., where he will remain for one year when he will be shipped back to his owner, Edmund Butler of Chester, N. Y. He is a register of merit bull. Shown holding the bull, above, are Cyril Spike, left, and Eber Baker, right, who say that the story about the former owner's death made a more lasting impression on their consciousness than the story of the Bull's acquittal for alleged complicity in the death.
