of the war, including six visits
to the Far East.

Asian-Africa Conference at Ban-
dung in 1955, the Berlin Airlift
in 1948, the Korean war crisis of
1951 and the South African crisis
in 1957.
In India, Pakistan, Ceylon and
Japan, Cousins has represented
the United States on good will

Iowa Receives
State Subsidy
For Repairs
Iowa's Governor Herschel Love-
less Monday signed a bill provid-
ing $6,190,000 for new buildings
and major repairs at the State
University of Iowa.
The appropriations bill was
passed unanimously in the Iowa
House and Senate last week. This
clears the way for the regents to
get started on a huge backlog of
building needs it says will require
at least $20 million to clear up.
To Give Propriety
Propriety will be given to the
new law center for which most of
the preliminary work has already
been done. The building will be
built next to the Law Commons
and both buildings will then house
the college.
The money will also provide
room for the law library and work
space for the law research program
and research assistants.
Also planned are a new phar-
macy buiding, a chemistry annex
and a permanent instead of a tem-
porary Health Service.
Plan Further Expansion
Utilities expansion and improve-
ment, psychopathic hospital addi-
tion and volatile solvent storage
building are also being planned.
The only contract which could
be let this spring is for the Law
Center. Plans call for other con-
tracts to be let next fall. Con-
struction of the buildings will not
be completed within the next two
years, an official said.
