•s TUESDAY, JUNE 15,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN New Embassy Beautiful but Not Practical By CONRAD FINK NEW DELHI, India (AP) — Beautiful it is; practical it isn't. This is the U.S. Embassy building in New Delhi, an edifice famed for its beauty but which has proven much too small in these days of large diplomatic staffs. The $1.4-million Edward Du rell Stone creation, completed in 1959, is clearly inadequate for American diplomats and a new $1.7-million annex is being built. The embassy essentially is an oblong structure with offices along the four outer walls — which cannot be expanded. A handsome pond, open to the sky, occupies the center of the building. * * * Ducks, sparrows and pigeons make their home in the pone and its lush green tropical plants. Tourists by the thousands come to see this wildlife sanctuary inside an embassy. After it was completed, the American diplomatic, military and ai5e staffs in New Delh grew by leaps and bounds. The Americans — now totaling more than l.eoo — rented all over New Dflhi. Clearly, all should be togeth er, around the duck pond. Bu how could this be accomplished since Stone had fashioned an architectural package with his embassy and adding on more rooms would be impossitali without knocking out a lot o walls? In addition, tinkering with what the late Frank Lloyd Wright, a famed architect called a "perfectly beautifu building" would be sure tc arouse screams of anguish among lovers of architecture and things beautiful the world over. * * * The solution seized upon was to build a similar — but less impos'r.g and more practical — building next door. This has been dubbed "West Building." Stone also designed this two- story building, being sure to preserve the separate aesthetic value o! his first creation. But, obviously, the two had to have some link. Stone's answer: an underground tunnel, invisible to art lovers who stand for hours just looking at the embassy. The new building will hav.e about 33,000 square feet of office space, compared with 28,000 in the embassy. Every inch of new space already is aHocated. nvi Health Services Will Be Studied ANN ARBOR — Community health needs and services throughout the state will be examined during the next several years, reports a U-M doctor. Dr. Vlado A. Getting of the U-M School of Public Health says that the work will be done through the Michigan Communi- DREDGE SWIMMING AREA—The Ironwood Kiwanis Club, during the latter part of last week, sponsored the dredging of the swimming area at Norrie Park, the sand from which, was used as fill around the site of the Hiawatha statue. Martin Kopnick, reporting on the project at a meeting of the Ironwood city commission Monday evening, said ap- proximately 200 truckloads of sand and dirt had been removed from the swimming area, making it deeper. Fill was needed around the site of the statue and this was one way of getting it, Kopnick said. The commission voted to send a letter of commendation to the Kiwanis Club for sponsoring this project.
