Augustana Sets Sights On Expansion ROCK ISLAND - Augustana College Board of Directors has announced plans for a campus expansion program which it is estimated will cost in excess of $1.5 million. The board has approved proposals for three inter-related projects: (1) To erect a complex of new men's residence halls with a capacity of more than 300 students. (2) To enlarge the present Westerlin Hall dining facilities to approximately twice their present size. (3) To clear and develop the central ravine to provide a wide asphalt walk connecting the main campus with the Davis addition. It will be the biggest development program in the history of the college, ranking ahead of the Centennial Hall, which cost $1,150,000. Seeks Federal Loan The board authorized the college treasurer to make application to the Federal Housing and Home Finance Agency for a loan to finance the project. This agency makes loans to both public and private educational institutions for residence hall construction. The executive committee, acting on authorization of the board, voted to engage a local architectural firm, Swanson & Maiwald of Moline, to draw up plans for the new buildings. The college plans to have the new men's residence halls completed and ready for occupancy by the summer of 1965. The same timetable applies to the enlarging of the Westerlin dining faculties and the development of the ravine. Architectural plans are to be completed by Jan. 1, and bids will be received next spring, provided the government loan is approved. Dr. C. W. Sorensen, college president, stated that Augus- tana's growth in enrollment this fall creates a "critical need" for new residence halls.

He met with reporters last Wednesday. Dinner for Carpentier Tabs 2,400 CHICAGO (UPl)-A capacity crowd of about 2,400 persons from throughout Illinois was ex* pected to pay $100 apiece to applaud Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier at a fund-raising dinner Wednesday night. Members of the testimonial dinner committee said today the dinner was sold out last Wednesday. It will be held in the International Ballroom of the Conrad Hilton Hotel. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, R- 111., will deliver the main address. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon originally was scheduled to speak, but he said a previous commitment prevented him from attending. Proceeds from the dinner will be used to further Carpentier's campaign for the Republican nomination for governor. Stratton Scheduled With Carpentier at the speakers' table will be state Senate GOP Leader Arthur J. Bid will, River Forest; Chief Justice Ray I. KUngbiel of the Illinois Supreme Court, like Carpentier from East Moline; dormer Gov. William G. Stratton, Morris, and Albert E. Jenner Jr., Kenilworth, former president of the Illinois Bar Association. Carpentier is opposed in his quest for the governor nomination by Charles H. Percy, Chicago business executive; Hayes Robertson, Cook County Republican chairman, and two other candidates. Nixon accepted an invitation to speak at the dinner when it originally was scheduled for September but declined when the event was postponed until this month. Before the date was changed, the former vice president said his agreement to speak at the Carpentier dinner did not constitute an endorsement of Carpentier's candidacy in a primary race in which he, Nixon, would not take sides.

Race Barrier Is Rapped By Baptists PEORIA, 111 (UPI) - Del* gates to the Illinois State Baptist Convention Monday adopted a resolution calling on member churches to accept persons of all races as members. Another resolution was adopted which asks the individual churches to study the economic and personal needs of persona who lose their jobs because of technological advancements. Churches should be "prepared to lead the way in creating an atmosphere of understanding among people and in ministering to the economic and spiritual needs of those who in advertently become victims of mechanical progress," the resolution said. The convention asked all member churches to adopt and implement the national Baptist organization's racial brotherhood program. It especially urged compliance with part of the program under which all churches should "accept and welcome persons of all races as members." Dr. W. L. Reppenhagen of Decatur was elected president of the state organization. O. G. Leach of Jerseyville was elected vice president, Rev.
