Purdue University will dedi cate two buildings in honor of her fallen astronauts in ceremo nies Thursday, Richard J. Grosh, dean of the Schools of Engineering, said. The event will be attended by the parents and widows of Vir gil I. "Gus" Grissom and Roger B. Chaffee, who lost their lives at Cape Kennedy 16 months ago in the only fatal accident to mar a long series of tests and launches at the space facility. Others to attend the initial Gala Week event include astronaut Neil A. Armstrong and Dr. G. E. Mueller, associate ad ministrator for manned space flight, National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Both are Purdue alumni. Grisson, of Mitchell, was a 1950 mechanical engineering graduate and the first man to make two flights into space in the Mercury and Gemini programs. He was to be the com mand pilot for Apollo I moon shot. . Chaffee, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was scheduled to fly with Grissom. He graduated in 1957 with a degree in aeronautical engineering. "The dedication program is in further recognition of what these two famous sons of Purdue gave to the heritage of our university and our nation," Dr. Frederick L. Hovde, university president, said. "Purdue is proud of them." Full scholarships in their honor were established in January, 1967, for Grissom's sons, Scott and Mark, and for Chaffee's two children, Sherly and Stephen. Scott has already indicated his intentions to enroll next fall. The dedication program will be the highlight for the Schools of Engineering during Gala Week, traditionally a homecoming for Purdue alumni. Dr. and Mrs. Hovde will host a private dinner Wednesday to honor principals in the building dedication. Guests include Mrs. Betty j urissom, ivir. ana Mrs. Dennis D. Grissom, Mrs. Martha Chaf fee Canfield, Mr. and Mrs. Don ald L. Chaffee, Dr. Mueller, Armstrong, and relatives and close friends of the Grissom and Chaffee families.

This modern office-laboratory-classroom structure is the result of a $1,725,000 remodeling project, ' two-thirds funded by the state and the remainder from federal grants. Roger B.

MEMORIAL SEMINARS In addition to the dedicatory program, plans are nearly com plete for the first Grissom-Chaf- fee Memorial Seminar in May, 1969. Seminar programs will be a joint venture between the Schools of Engineering and the School of Humanities, Social Sci ence and Education (HSSE). The seminars will be a forum to discuss long-range implica tions of science and technology on education and society. The seminars, will be an an- ory of the two Purdue astro nauts,", said Marbury B. Ogle, dean of HSSE. "They are to be held each' year at the beginning of the Gala Week period."

West Lafayette and Purdue Chem Building, 2nd Parking Garage OK'd Two construction projects costing more than $13 million were approved for the West La fayette campus by Purdue Uni versity's . trustees Thursday, subject to approval by the State Budget Agency and Gov. Roger D. Branigin. The projects include a chemistry building to be built north of Heavilon Hall at an estimated cost of $11.2 million, and a park ing garage near Third and Wal- dron streets costing about $1.8 million. The chemistry building was approved by state authorities in 1967 but cost estimates for the structure have risen more than $1.2 million since then, and re newal of approval thus will be sought. Long-range plans originally called for construction of the parking garage in 1970, but on- campus conditions necessitate acceleration of that project, officials said. The chemistry building, when completed, will replace several old World War II temporary buildings along Stadium Avenue which, for 22 years, have housed chemistry laboratories. The new building, with four stories above ground and two below, containing 200,000 square feet, is to house one of the nation's largest university chemistry departments. Financing of the project would include a $7.9 bond issue, a $1.5 million federal grant, an $800,- 000 National Science Foundation grant, and other resources. Planning for the building was authorized in a $150,000 appropriation by the 1967 legislature. Booming enrollments, traffic and parking problems have necessitated construction of the 600-car parking garage, officials said. The garage would approximately match in size and func tion a garage across Grant Street from Union Building. An unexpected 16 per cent enrollment jump and proximity of the new Mathematical Sciences and Pharmacy buildings which generate traffic were listed as major reasons for starting construction now, so that the garage can be in use in 1969. Construction costs will be retired with parking garage revenue. Initially, it would be financed by the Ross-Ade Foundation under a lease-purchase agreement. Cost of 9th 'H' Hall Set at $7.2 Million Purdue University's board of trustees awarded contracts to taling $7.2 million Thursday for construction of a residence hall to accommodate 868 women. The structure, ninth in the "H" type series, will be built just north of Earhart Hall, and be named Eleanor B. Shreve Hall. F. A. Wilhelm Co. was suc cessful bidder for general construction with a $3,726,536 fig ure. A $1,136,000 mechanical contract was awarded Baker, McHenry & Welch Co. Sanborn Electric Co. will get the electrical contract for $604,850. Additional costs will include $441,763 for loose furniture and equipment; $377,468 for built-in furniture; $365,238 for kitchen equipment; $115,000 for archi tect's fees, $280,000 tor interest during construction; and other costs. r Woman, 81, Hurt Mrs. Mary R. Morrison, 81, of 469 Robinson St., was taken to Home Hospital at 1:15 p.m. Thursday with a shoulder injury suffered in a fall at her home. FOUR WILD IN CARD GAME; KINGS LOSER Police said they were called to the Kings Crown Inn, 1217 U.S. 52 Bypass, at 11:25 p.m. to investigate a fight in one of the motel rooms. Officers said they discovered that a fight had broken out during a card game involving three men from Indianapolis and one from Fairland. Police said furniture and the television set in the room were damaged in the fracas. Officers said the men involved, agreed to make restitution for the damage, ana that the motel's management declined to press charges. Panel To Discuss Land Development A panel discussion by profes sionals concerned with the development of land for human endeavor will highlight a program Saturday arranged by Purdue University's Department of Horticulture and the Division of Landscape Architecture. The day's activities are a part of the University's 1968 Arts Festival. This Festival program will i start at 9 a.m. with a reception and coffee period in Horticulture Building Room 301. The group will lunch in Purdue Union's Lafayette room. A chapter business meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects and a reception for guests will fill the early afternoon agenda. The panel's session will be at 3:30 p.m. in the Krannert Building Auditorium. Guest speakers will be Mrs. Harry Francis, White House Beautification Office, Washington, D.C.; Patrick Horsbrugh, Notre Dame University School of Architecture professor; and Victor J.
