Bowman Overcomes Obstacles Friends and alumni contributed the huge sums that have gone into the building. Chancellor Bowman faced huge difficulties in getting the cathedral under way. in transferring his own enthusiasm to men who couid give money for the project, in lighting prejudices to .such a type ot buiiding. It was a decade ago that the plan was born in his mind, and four years ago that work acttially got under way; but still the building is not finished. Obstacles continued to arise as the work progressed. But Chancellor Bowman, who has been a teacher In a -small country school, reporter on a night police beat for a newspaper, and head of the American College of Surgeons, stuck by his guns. He had evisioncd his skyscraper university as one of the greatest educational centers the world has even known, and he clung to his plan. "I earnestly believe that the university will make Pittsburgh a better city and will lift the level ol learning," he says. "Education is a compass that guides men on the sea of life. Our greatest problem is the numberless thousands in a large city that drift in an uncharted course in life with no definite goal in view.
