LaGuardia Points Out The Highlights Of Gotham To Eden

SGraduateSchool Is Reknowned j
For Practicability And Beauty

(This is the seventh in a series deal-
ing with the history, development and
activities in the Graduate School. To-
day's article continues with a descrip-
tion of the Rackham Buiding, center
of all graduate activities.)
By MORTON LINDER
Originally intended as a center for
graduate activities, the Rackham
Building has proven of great use to
the entire campus. The structure,
which has been termed one of the
most beautiful college buildings in the
country, serves as a convenient meet-
ing plabe for many organizations.
The mezzanine floor consists, onr
the east, south and west sides, of
the high rooms on the second floor.
The northern part contains eight
workrooms for visiting faculty and
graduate students, and two lecture
rooms, each seating 50 people. The
lecture rooms are carpeted and
equipped with theatre-type chairs,
light-proof shades and facilities for
projectors. The exhibition rooms and
corridors have linoleum floors and
are painted a neutral grey color; the
walls of the exhibition rooms are of
wood covered with fabric to permit
freedom in the hanging of exhibits.
The third floor covers about one-I
half the area of the lower part of the
building. The south part of it con-
tains the upper portion of the south
study hall.
In the center of this story is a small
amphitheatre, 60 feet in dameter,
seatng 250. On the south side is a
laboratory toble fully equipped for
demonstrations and the steep-ter-
raced floor provides perfect vision
from all parts of this table.
On the north side is an assembly
room with two alcoves providing
space for receptions, dances and n-
formal meetings. The rooms are di-
vided by folding cloth doors, and the
