rather than the spending road."

An appreciative teaching fellow marvelled that a few months',
work could have produced such a wonder, and an aesthetic old lady
said, "Such a beautiful museum, and they put this (a wave of the
hand indicated new additions) in front of the pillars!"
University Museum of Art Director Charles H. Sawyer said: "We
have attempted to create a happy marriage between the old and the'
new - and also create a useful building in the process."
The occasion was the premiere at 7 p.m. yesterday of the newly'
remodeled Museum of Art in Alumni MemorialHall. "It is the begin-
ning of a new, and we hope very important, era for art in the Uni-'
versity community," Sawyer said.
