4 July 20, 1M8 ••••a City Gl»b«'G*xette, M»son City, la. Draw Plans for ISTC Building New Campus Grade, High School Proposed Cedar Falls — Final plans are being drawn for the new campus grade and high school to be erected at the Iowa State Teachers college in the near future. The new teaching laboratory will be erected at the corner of 19th street and Campus street just north of the campus. The building will be reverse E- ehaped, with a wing housing the elementary grades facing Campus street on th,e east. This wing will be 336 feet long and 66 feet wide and 2 stories high. One Story Wing The central wing, which contains arts and industries rooms, agriculture, auto-mechanics and science laboratories, will be a one-story, 173 feet by 66 feet, unit. The top of the E, the gymnasium wing, will be 181 feet by 99 feet and 2 stories high. The construction will be of steel frame with brick and stone trim and a green stone panel between floors. The 19th street or north frontage of the structure is 367 feet. The classrooms are larger than most schools of this type. Standard classroom width for many years has been 20 or 22 feet, according to Doctor Dwight Curtis, .director of the teaching department at the college. This would necessitate a 40-foot length to accommodate the larger classes and student observation groups which use the classrooms. This size room, however, is too long and narrow for observation and student teaching groups. Therefore, most of the new classrooms will be 24 feet by 36 feet. Wings for H. S. Most of the elementary grade classrooms will be in the elementary wing, while the high school classrooms will be in the other wings of the building. • An important section of the school will be the personnel services department which includes a guidance center and provides clinical services in psychology, achievement and aptitude testing, and speech, arithmetic and reading clinics. The new school envisions the community service type of school education of an informal as well as formal basis for the entire community. It rejects the old idea of organized classes for adult education, but provides for sections of the building to be open for individual or group use of rooms and equipment at any time after the regular school hours.
