Included in the development program is the proposed construction of several new buildings on the campus at a cost of approximately $700.000. Additional modernization work on th* physical plant and other proposals would bring th* total expenditures to almost 31,400,000. THE AMBITIOUS 10 year plan for th* college has been drawn up by th* development committee composed of Roy 8. Williams, chairman of the board of trustees; Glen O. Pierrel, development isa; Dr. Philip C. King, consultant from Marts A Londy, Inc.; and Charles 8. Ban, president of the institution. Cost of the individual projects hi the- program ar* itemised as follows: 1--a new men's dormitory to provide housing for in- ·ressing number of men students dene* building converted to dormi-1 tory use--$250,000; 2--a presi-j denfs home and faculty housing [ to be located across Trueblood avenue from the central campus-$150,000; 3--industrial arts and agriculture building and department--$150,000; 4 -- scholarship endowment to provide opportunity for youths of ambition and ability with HmitaMf fjn»noiai resources-$350,000; 5--additional general endowment--$250,000; 6--a new library building--$150.000; 7--plant modernization--$100,000; and 8-- cruizing **»» kitchen and owning hall and rebuilding th* manual in the KUgen organ. thening of the of the college. A build-up of th* endowment ineom* has scientific equipment to bring the already excellent scientific laboratories up to the most modern standards--$30,000. The proposed library structure site is directly north of the main hall while the new men's dorm and industrial arts building would be constructed north of the heating plant, according to present plans. Part of the plant modernization program is already underway with th* installation of a new $22,500 boiler and the widening of Trueblood avenue.

In 1952 the school announced several immediate development goals. These included: 1--strengthening the financial structure of the college by building toward a full enrollment of 400 students, by building up «im»ai living endowment gifts, and by adding to the permanent endowment; 2 -- to bring faculty standards in salaries and advanced degrees to a satisfactory level; 3--to erect a gymnasium to remedy the one serious deficiency in the college's educational plant; 4 -- through these positive achievements of a new health and physical education building, stabilized financial operations, and faculty improvement, to win accreditation by the North Central Association, Many of these objectives have already been accomplished -- notably the completion of the gymnasium building and the streng- cy was registered in th* increase of annual gifts for current operations from $25,993 !n 1950» 51 to $49.457 in 1953-54.

Then came the tragic econoir-c disaster of the 1931-32-33 era which left particularly deep wound to the agricultural midwest wnere drought and poor crops aggravated the devastation of the business depression. Penn suffered perhaps more than other schools because of its farm area locator. and the lack of a large constituency to rally to its support. World War II and the Korean conflict brought further difficulties and prohibited resumption of a normal program. The net result was a loss of Income, a loss of students, a lower faculty salary scale, and an e-aj- eational program which suffered from these problems.
