F Dinner Party Given Uctet Members A dinner party for the honoree and her fiance was given recently (^ JIOSCH at XVllOX by Mr. and Mrs. George Culver and Mr. and Mrs. William Schroe- Members of the men's Mounted on the walls of the Lounge are a series of architects* drawings of elementary and high school buildings erected in various sections of the country, with prob* lems peculiar to the locality solved in sometimes dramatic fashion. When Brooklyn, N. Y. ( for instance, needed a building with a 3,000 student capacity, but had a site only one -half block wide and two blocks long, a four -story circular structure was the answer,- with the auditorium in the center arid classrooms all around the perimeter. One conventional wing extending down the center of the lot gives the entire structure a banjo shape. When Newark, Ohio, had a 10- foot deep gully on its building site, jthe school was suspended across the gap as though on a bridge, 'and the area underneath was converted into a sheltered play area for the children. Changes in the educational system are reflected in school architecture. Bus ports are making an increasing appearance, offering parking space removed from the busy streets and a sheltered walk directly into the buildings in bad weather. Natural daylight is utilized to the fullest possible extent, with vertical or horizontal louvers, baffles, plexiglass skylights, and directional glass brick used to diffuse the light and control glare. Window Construction Mr. Scribbins revealed a warm concern for the welfare of the children as he pointed out the defects or merits of various buildings. In the Cherry Lane School, floor to ceiling windows would result in glare, and the transverse overhead lighting would be ineffectual on the far side of the room. In addition to this the ceiling construction is extremely expensive. He said firmly that while radiant heating is fine for homes it results in unavoidable overheating in classrooms unless additional ventilating units are installed, which latter, of -course boosts building cost. There is economy in heating a one-story structure up to 15 or 18 rooms, but multiple floor construction is advisable for larger buildings. In this area a close proximity of buildings is de- andlsirable over those with extensive Nuptial Mase Held at St. Patrick's WJ Gowned In gold and emerald of the attendants* dresses and theltnffeta, had a half-wrenth of yal- jeen the Misses Mary Joan, Bo- white of the bride's.
