Hart's proposal for a national scenic highway would: do as much for Michigan as the i freeway construction program! has done for the economy of the j larger cities in southern Mich- j igan," he added.

Mackie said a lack of funds has delayed the beginning of construction on some 650 miles' of proposed shoreline highways in the state. The plans are based on a I960 survey showing some 650 miles of scenic Great Lakes shoreline highways could be built for about $100 million. * * it * * it * Today's Chuckle!

Harrison and George Kropp, warden of Southern Michigan Prison, will decide together on the questions of prosecution and deprivation of accumulated good time. Gunsell, formerly of Flint, was serving a 14-15 term for burglary when he fled from the work camp near Pontiac 10 years ago and made his way eventually to Colorado. For eight years, he lived and worked under the assumed name of "George W. King" until FBI agents arrested him in July. Gunsell returned voluntarily to Michigan to appeal his case.

At the end of that time, the students would transfer to either U-M or Wayne State. Although MSU officials said they were satisfied with the report and that MSU is not thinking in terms of a four - year school at this time, it seems apparent they have no intention of following the committee recommendation.
