Superb Interchange Leads To Cow Pasture, Dead End Railroads TO Test" -- Lili« Well* Photo JOHN G. GEORGE By LESLIE ERNENWEIN The underpass interchange on the Benson Hwy. at Wilmot Rd. is a concrete example of magnificent modern engineering. But obviously it was built, at a cost of approximately $200,000, for the future. At present the interchange exits lead to a dead end dirt road to the north, and a cow pasture on the south. A Tucsonian, who should have known better, followed the advertised Wilmot road exit recently on his way back from El Paso. He traveled Wilmot road two miles north,' came smack dab against the fence at Davis-Monthan "AFB, alerted an air policeman who eyed him with suspicion and hastily returned to the Benson Highway. During an hour's inspection of the interchange yesterday no cars used the exits to Wilmot road. But * rabbit hopped through the four-lane underpass to go from the north to the south side of the busy highway. When last seen, the cottontail was crossing a cattle guard into the cow pasture. Why was me elaborate interchange built when there is practically no traffic to use it? "Traffic counts made a couple years ago indicated that the Wilmot road interchange would be necessary by 1975," said W. 0. Price, district engineer for " the i state Highway System," P r i c e Highway Department. j said. "Within possibly two years Does this expectation of heavy the Interstate Highway will swing traffic to the n o r t h anticipate approximately one mile north of abandonment of Davis-Monthan j the present crossing. There will AFB? "No, but there may be a county road to the south." Price said there are no dwellings that he knows of on the dirt road that is Wilmot to the south. How come there is no overpass interchange at busy Palo Verde Blvd. and the Benson Hwy. "Because it is not on the Inter- be tn interchange at Palo Verde and the new highway." Most of the cost of the Wilmot road interchange was paid by the federal government--about 94 per cent, with the state paying the balance. The exit signs don't warn uninformed motorists that its projected use is for 1975. Tolson Tells Problems Of Year-Around School ^ By JACK CARSON Andy Tolson, principal of Tucson High School, today namsd transportation, maintenance, transfers and the human factor as some of the problems involved in a 12- month school year. j .

He then pointed out several of the problems the administration would face if a 12-month, four- quarter school year were adopted. Tolson said that transportation was a big, expensive item now and would be an enlarged problem with a 12-month school year. Regarding maintenance, t h e j principal said the wear and tear on the facilities is tremendous with double sessions. A full i'fi;»r would increase that wear and tear on the facilities.

Although they worked at night, if they left their paint and tools during the day, the room would be lost for use, Tolson said. Paint odors would be a problem, he I'dded. "And it's getting hard to get janitors to work at night," Tolson said. The four high schools have about 1,000 transfers a year coming in and about the same number leaving. Tolson said this would be a problem b,jause: "Where would we start them and when?" If the school worked on a quarterly basis, a new class would start every three months.

Booth School Building Plan Slowed Plans on constructing the new Booth Elementary School are being held off at present by Tucson District 1 school officials. Supt. Robert Morrow said today that a rcstudy is being made lo determine whether to go ahead with the school or build the classrooms, elsewhere. A change in plans may be caused by a slowup of home construction in the area the school was to have served, according to Morrow. The 12-classroom school was to have been built in an area east of Kolb road and north of 22nd street. Funds for the construction were provided by the $9.9 million bond issue okayed by voters in February. "The school will have to be built eventuslly." said Morrow, He added: "It is our understanding that home b u i l d i n g in thai area is being delayed from three to six months. If there is a slowup of home construction in Ih" area we. will delay the plans on the Booth School."
