PROPOSED New SCIENCE BUILDING UPPCQ IOWA UNIVEBSITY FAYETTE: IOWA ToeMim < STSMSOM APOJITECTS VteTau-oe IOWA New Science building is aext on Upper Iowa Improvement list Work is expected to get underway in the very near future on a new quarter of a million dollar science hall on the Upper Iowa University campus. The building is being financed through .gifts from two loyal Upper lowans. Initial funds for the new building came from the estate of George C. Hebron, Strawberry Point farmer and a former student at the University. Hebron had willed the University the bulk of his estate amounting to approximately $125 ,000 and designated that the funds would be used for capital improvements. To this was added a gift of 4,000 shares of Wallace & Tiernan stock contributed by Dr. John C. Baker of Alhambra, California. When sold the stock netted the University approximately $150,000. Dr. Eugene E. Garbee, U.I.U. president, stated that contracts for the new building, which will be known as the Baker-Hebron Science Hall could be let within the next two months with construction getting underway soon thereafter. The Baker - Hebron Science Hall will be the 5th major new construction at Upper Iowa since 1956. Dr. Baker, noted educator and scientist, holds over 50 patents dealing with various phases of flour bleaching, detection of infection in milk, sterilization of fruits and vegetables, controlling fungus infection and methods of bread manufacture. Dr. Baker is listed in "Who's Who" and has published over 40 scientific articles. He was recently designated as a "Modern Pioneer" by the American Association of -Manufacturers. Plans fcr the new science building designed by Toenjes & Stenson of Waterloo include a 34x44 lecture hall with a seating capacity of 100 on the ground floor. The vestibule and hall way will feature display cases for items fn:m the University's museum including the famous 60.000 specimen butterfly collection donated by Dr. A. F. Porter of Decorah. Also included on the ground floer will be four laboratories, three preparation rooms, work room, storage room and four offices. The first floor will house two laboratories, three large class- nooms, work room, balance room, preparation room and three offices. Plans also call for the remodeling of the present science hall into a chemistry building at a cost of approximately $50,000. Paul Templeman of the board of trustees, has been appointed by the board as chairman of the building committee to supervise construction of the new science hall. Final plans as to location and ground breaking ceremonies will be announced in the near future according to President Garbee. 10 College Edition Wednesday.
