A-4 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Mon., April 16.1973 Building projects at UNC total over $33 million Construction projects at the University of Northern Colorado have totaled more than $33 million over the past 10 years. The figure represents virtually all of the West Campus complex. Ten buildings have gone up on the West campus since 1963. An eleventh construction project during the period was. the Married Student A p a r t m e n t complex on the East campus. The Major building was the recently completed James A. Michener Library. That building, containing over three acres of floor space, cost just over $5 million and is the largest academic library structure in Colorado. A $600,000 fund drive is under way to purchase needed materials for the Michener Library. Two of the most notable buildings on the West campus are the high-rise dormitories. Turner, completed in 1968 and offering 136,800 square feet of space, was built at a cost of $3.2 million. Shadowing this 13-story structure is the soon-to-be completed 17-story high rise apartment dormitory. Slated for use by summer or fall terms, the dorm contains 116,000 square feet of space and cost $3.8 million. As in the case of all dormitories, it was built through bonding and not through tax money. The dormitories are self-sustaining properties as is the University Center adjacent to the West campus. This $3.1 million struclire -- housing most student activities -- was completed in 19B5 and contains 121,777 square feet.

Now THAT'S PROGRESS ... · LAV 111 I I W W K. \* \J K. IM--sized or unsized--in this revolutionary planter. Simple. Reliable. Plant at speeds up to 7 mph with yield-boosting accuracy. Here's how it works: Seed from the master hopper is automatically fed to the revolving seed drum. As the drum turns, seeds lodge in the perforated pockets and are held in place by air escaping thru the perforations. A soft bristled brush carefully cleans off any excess seed. When seeds reach the lop of the drum, seed-release wheels block the escaping air and seeds fall from Ihe pockets into delivery tubes. Air takes over again and carries the seeds thru the tubes, delivering them into the furrow with speed and precision. No over-or-under plant; you get the exact population you want. Come In . . .
