CHEMISTRY LABORATORIES:
Remodeling Done by Plant Department

By MARILYN WOOD

i
I

One phase of the University plant
department's broad scope is re-
modeling.
For the past year carpenters,
plumbers, and electricians have
been tearing down and recon-
structing laboratories in the chem-
istry department.
Mr. William Guenther, group
leader of the plant department
carpenter shop, said they will
probably *be working there for al-
most another year before the job
is finished.
Five large labs in the old chem-
istry building have been completely
remodeled.
Rooms Cleaned
"We cleaned the rooms out from
wall to wall, floor to ceiling,"
Guenther says. Each new lab now
has fluorescent lighting, new book
racks, new floors, new plumbing,
new steambaths, and all new
equipment.
Room 3050, a quantitative analy-
sis lab, is being remodeled at the
present time. A general chemistry
lab, room 4000, will be done in the
near future. Room 1208. a pre-
paration room for experiments,
will be made more up-to-date
soon.
The large lecture room, 1200, is
to be made more comfortable and
more useful. Better ventilation,
new seats, and new blackboard
area are on the agenda.
In the new chemistry building
there have been a few changes
made also. The chemistry store
offices have been moved to the
first floor from the second for the
sake of convenience. The labs
which were located on the first
floor have necessarily been moved
tv the second.
New Labs Set Up
Dr. Leigh C. Andersor, chairman
of the chemistry department, said,
"We are setting up the new labs
to take care of more students. The
labs are not being increased in
size. Their external structure is
not altered."
In 1909, when the old chemistry
building was erected, each desk in
the labs would handle three or four
sections per week Now, in the
new labs, four to nine sections can
be assigned to each desk
In larger figures this means that
the number of students who may

(Continued from Page 1)
The four telecourses will be
evaluated for relative effectiveness,
the motivation and ability level of
student performance will be as-
sessed, and the effects upon in-
structional staffs in preparing and
presenting telecourses w i11 be
gauged.
"The results of the San Fran-
cisco State experiments will not be
available before the fall of 1957,"
noted Brandon.
"No where yet," the University
administrator felt, is there .enough
knowledge about education-by-
television. I would like to see the
Project observations include a
course in science.
"It should be noted that Penn-
sylvania State ran a similar ex-
periment and the results indicated
that there was no significant dif-
ference in the learning processes
between 'classroom" and "televi-
sion' instruction."

take chemistry in a semester has
been increased from a pproximately
200 to about 500.
"Each lab is :et up a little dif-
ferently," Guenther remarked.
"There is alway a little different
idea for each individual one."
Space Installed
Dr. Anderson commented that
most of these reconstruction jobs.
have been done during she school
year. "The chemistry classes
double up in other new labs," he
said. "We can only do this be-
cause of the extra desk space
which has been installed."
"Upwards of $30,000 is the ap-
proximate cost of each new labora-
tory," Dr. Anderson says.
The plant department was given
the job, though other construction
compan' :s also bid for it.
All the furniture which has been
installed in the new labs is con-
structed in the plant depart;nent
carpentry shop. Located on the
ground floor of the building, it
houses stacks of new lumber which
is converted into useful furniture

by experienced carpenters. The
cupboards, shelving, hoods, etc. are
assembled by the carpenters when
they install the equipment in the
various new laboratories.
"It is only in the last few years
that the plant department began
to tackle jobs as big as this,"
Guenther said. "They used to re-
strict their work to maintenance."
The plans for each laboratory
are drawn up, far ahead of any
actual work, by members of the
plant department upon the advice
of members in the chemistry de-
partment.
Art Exhibition
An exhibit of drawings and
paintings by Albert Weber and
Robert Beetem, instructors in -the
Department of Art, is being shown
now on the first floor of the Ar-
chitecture and Design Building.
The pictures will be on display
until May 20.
