Art history

By ROBERT SCHWARTZ
Some sections of the University may
be making cuts, but the art history
department is growing - and so is
their study space.
Construction began this summer on a
$2.3 million library, research, and
study facility that will be added on to
Tappan Hall, the department's home.
THE ADDITION will replace ob-
solete facilities in Tappan Hall, the
third-oldest building on campus, accor-
ding to Joel Isaacson, chairman of the.
art history department.
Tappan Hal "is woefully inadequate
as far as space and atmosphere,"
Isaacson said.
Located on South University next to
the Museum of .Art, the addition will
house what some say is the most exten-
sive art history library between the

for an improvement. "We sort of run
(the collection) out of a shoe box. It will
be wonderful to have more room for the
archives, and the rest of the research4
materials housed in this building," she
said.
The University administration is
paying for about one quarter of the
project, LSA is picking up an additional
$300,000, and the department is attem-
pting to raise the remaining $1.4 million
through private donations.
The art history department will be
located in the East Engineering

project is expected to be finished.

Don't Let a Bad Break
Disrupt Your College Budget
Whether it's an intramural football injury or a surprise attack of appendicitis,
an unanticipated sickness or accident can result in large medical bills.
And if you're like most college students, your budget doesn't allow for any
bad breaks."
That's why it's a good idea to help protect yourself against the medical
expenses of an unexpected sickness or accident by enrolling now in the
1983-1984 Accident and. Sickness Insurance Plan, approved by the MSA for
University of Michigan students and their dependents.
Underwritten by Mutual of Omaha, this plan provides hospital-surgical
protection for covered sickness and accidents - plus benefits for X-rays,
lab tests, ambulance and even major medical expenses.
If you haven't already reviewed the plan description mailed to you, you owe
it to yourself to do so now. Brochures describing the benefits, costs and
conditions of coverage are available at the Student Insurance Information
Center, Room 354, University Health Service, 207 Fletcher Ave.,
Ann Arbor, MI.
But don't wait. The plan's initial enrollment period ends September 24, 1983.

may, will push out CRISP and the Cen-.
ter for Afro-American and African
Studies (CAAS) to make room for the
department.
CAAS will "most likely" move to
West Quad, according to director Niara
Sudarkasa. University administrators
have not decided where CRISP will be
relocated.
Faculty members said they support
the move and are anxious-to leave the
North Ingalls Building, formerly old St.
Joseph's Hospital. The hospital gives
the department more space than the old
Economics Building, but faculty mem-
bers have complained that it is too far
from campus.
"We're about five blocks from the
center ofthings, and it makes a big dif-
ference," said Economics Department

Chairman Frank Stafford.
SINCE THE department moved to
the old hospital, students have been less
willing to come to professors' office
hours, said Economics Lecturer Helen
%rafton.
"Few students come to my office,"
she said. "I get more phone calls and
less visits."
The new location will provide not only
a central campus location, but more of-
fice space for the department. "The old
(economics) building was really
inadequate. There was a real need to
upgrade office space," Stafford said.
Although the move to Lorch Hall will
provide better facilities, Crafton said
some faculty members still have a sen-
timental attachment to the Economics
