The energy needed for an impromptu parade would seem hardly worth the efforts to adults on these hot summer days, but it's a different story with the younger set. About 20 youngsters in the Kenwood Ave. area dressed up in costume, decorated their bicycles and marched around the neighborhood. Despite all the convention activity this week, the parade apparently had no political overtones.

CLEANUP RESULTS IN UNIQUE VEHICLE: This is what happens when people clean out their basements for spring trash pickup, or at least what happened when City Attorney Peter W. Forsythe of 1205 Olivia cleaned his last weekend. The basement treasures, two tricycles and a toy tractor, were welded together to make room for his four children and a friend. Riding the "silly bike" as the children call it, are from left, Linda Forsythe, Carl Wolf, David Forsythe, Martha and Jim Forsythe. No attempt to patent the vehicle has been reported.

Mayor Doing HIs Thing Mayor Robert J. Harris is aiding, in a minor way, the city's traffic and parking congestion problems, and also reducing city costs for gas mileage for City Council members. His bicycle is shown in the mayor's parking spot in the garage beneath City Hall, a means of transportation he uses when it doesn't rain. It is believed Harris is the first mayor of Ann Arbor to use this means of transportation to get to City Hall regularly -- at least the first since the automobile became an accepted form of transportation here.
