New Schools Use New Designs CHICAGO f/VP) — Tlir scarcity of land now is causing architects 'o consider building schools that go straight up. A Chicago architectural firm, one of Ihe country's leading <lc.- signers of educational buildings, has designed a school of 2\ stores plus a Irrw-risr building fo r ad- ministrat.ion and assemblies. It is a new trend of t.ho'ight in school buildings, particularly in cities where space is in short supply. Six compact school units arc 'paced on four-floor segment* j with each unit having a capacity for 480 students. j As in skyscraper office buildings, services for the school tower are concentrated in a central core. Stirounding space is open and flexible in accomodate j Ihe varied needs of education in the future. Charlei W. Brubaker, architect, suggests that Ihe design will prove thought provoking to school space concepts which arc based on today's sprawling suburban tracts of land. He suggests this offers a solution to a new high school, new community college and-or urban revilalization programs. If a new trend in school building takes hold with boards of education, a lot of favored architectural concepts will be tossed aside. School designs which string classrooms down long corridors, and longer wings, will be old hat. Glass will nearly disappear in tho schoolroom. And w'ith controller} lighting and air-conditioning, the climate in ca«h classroom will be equable. Such compact schools built in srjitarn or rectangular masses are now in operation in places as divergent as Kimborly, Wis., and /ieaumont, Tex. And here's why school boards like them: Their compactness slashes heating costs, and more than pays for airconditioning. Tho square block design means SCHOOL FOR A CITY is depicted by this drawing of a 24-story tower school building with low building for jharod facilities. The commons floor of each of the six school units is served by its own elevator.

LOUIS (AP) — Did successful acttors and actresses have interests in common even before they first donned greasepaint? This Is what the Student Counseling Service at St. Louis' Washington University hopes to find out Counselors plan to test a number of the the theatrical performers to see whether similar interests drew them to their work. Recently, two students who want to enter the professional theater sought advice from the counseling service. A counselor told the youths there i s no known interest test for acting, but suggested they take the Strong Vocational Interest Blank test. This test usually shows what areas the tcstec is interested in. B'y means of interpretation, the counselor can usually tell the testce what field s he might try for a successful and happy vocation. Donald Zytowskl, director of student counseling, and some of his staff decided it might be interesting to see how professional actors and actresses would respond to the Strong. The most locacal place to begin testing, they thought, would be the traveling company of "Pajama Tops." Zytowski contacted Lee Hewitt, manager of the company. Hewitt consulted with the cast and they agreed to work with Washington University. "I think this project Is a grand idea," Hewitt said. "A lot of kids have not idea what acting is all about Maybe this test comparison will help in some way to give the right direction." Zytowski said it will probably be a year or more before anv results are compiled. He said tho counseling service plans to est all the traveling shows which come to St. Louis, and he plans to contact agents of Hollywood. Broadway and television performers to enlist their aid. The counseling service intends to publish any results it considers valid. Proibablv Happens Time the school is designed from the inside out, with du€ consideration to today's teaching methods, j which features small conference i rooms, multiple purpose classrooms and individual study cubicles. In the South Park School in Beaumont, Tex., the core of the building includes 24 teaching units which may be subdivided for smaller discussion groups. Around the outside of the square are permanent classrooms. In schools of similar design, teaching stations and desks arc arranged for the maximum ef- ' fectiveness of the subject being taught, without regard for the need for natural lighting. Walls come into their own for I all kinds of uses not only with chalk boards, but peg boards and tack board space. Since rooms- without windows can be darkened at the flip of a switch, teachers can take far greater advantage of visual aides which will be Immediately available in the classroom. The new, curriculum-oriented school plays up the increasing prominence of the library, which now stores not only books, but tapes, slides and micro-film. Students may take library materials to their own study carrels for quiet perusal. The compact school is made of brick cavity wall construction and may have glazed openings at the ends of corridors. Glass, If used at all in the classrooms, is stripped near the ceiling. Poae 4B finrdon City Telegram Wednesday, August 14, 1963 TUCSON. Ariz.
