Authority and the turnpike law which authorizes construction of toll roads in Michigan Suit challenging the constitutionality of the act was brought by the city of Dearborn which contended primarily that the turnpike law violated municipalities control over their streets and alleys The court said it interpreted the law to mean thc authority wny ne puts must obtain consent of municipalities to change their category except that and alleys in existence and on that basis the toll mt of those humans law was constitutional finite strength against Validation of the turnpike act means that in bonds for the toll road will be sold within GO days but it removes obstacles holding up other toll roads within Michigan A expressway is one of the bigger ects on the drawing boards and George N Higgins Turnpike Authority chairman has announced that as soon as bonds are sold we'll start on the Dovner mem o road authorized in the act He said he will ask Slate way 01 he other way Commissioner

conference of fishing experts from the United States and Canada will discuss the problem on Dec 12 at Purdue University in Indiana One of the first things for them to determine is why the lampreys are appearing in Lake Krie whose water had hitherto been thought too warm for them I hey may have come up the St Lawrence through the Canal by attaching themselves to the bottoms of ships One plan to kill them is to stretch electrical barriers across the mouths of streams up which these lake creatures go to spawn I- ood fish being more sensitive than lampreys avoid C lampreys swim into them and are n i

praying to some-ONE and not to then we have a right to assume that some-ONE hears Personalities are able to communicate with one another There may be barriers of language distance and experience which make U difficult for two persons to un- one another's language but at least on some level they can reach an understanding It may be only a gesture but it conveys an idea and the passing on of idea from one personality to another Is the beginning of knowledge That a deep mystery is involved 111 the thought that we can com- with God must be admitted but a very great deal of life passes th physical pears as intellectual labor But we do not cease eating because we cannot understand the mystery by which a plain meal finally emerges as the lution of an intellectual problem If it seems difficult to believe that the God of all the universe is abls to hear you and at the same time lend n listening ear to all the that go up from his other children then consider for a moment the of the
