There is a possibility of a late

Prof. Smith said. Imports have

they will be $3 billion above the
level that existed in the first half
of 1961.

... cites overcrowding
A rehit ecis
The architecture college began
using a room last week in the
East University Bldg. to relieve
partially some of the space short-'
age in the Architecture Bldg.
The room, containing approxi-
mately 500 square feet of floor
space, is being used by the land-
scape architecture department for
research and teaching,
The Architecture Bldg. is being
used by twice as many students as
it was originally designed to han-
dle, Dean Herbert W. Johe of the
college commented.'
When the building was opened
in 1927,, the college had 365 stu-
dents using its facilities. Today
it has 786 students in the same
Overcrowded Studies
Johe cited the drafting and stu-x
dio rooms as examples of over-
crowded facilities. One room has.
115 tables instead of the 72 it
should have, based on the accept-
ed standard of 50 square feet per
table and another has 160 tables
when it should contain only 90.
All of the drafting and studio
rooms are at least 50 per cent
over capacity. The rooms contain-
ing special studio equipment are
at least 100 per cent overcrowd-
ed, he added..
A recent survey pointed out that
the faculty, offices are inadequate
and very small compared to' the
rest of the University. There are
only 850 square feet for faculty
research which is inadequate, Johe
Lacks Space
"The college is bursting out at
the seams," Johe declared.
"The lack of space affects qual-

"However, quality is bound to
go down if facilities continue to
