Vance, foundation president. Under the Maytag foundation's Educational Gift-Matching plan, all gifts made- by employes to schools or educational funds of their choice are equalled by the foundation up to a $500 maximum.

During 1961, third year of the plan, the number of gifts made went up 11 per cent over the previous year, which in turn recorded twice as many contributions as were made during 1959, the plan's first year of operation. Seven of every ten gifts made the past year were in the $5 to $25 range.

Be over $600,000 Upper Iowa University officials Thursday announced the kick-off of a drive to raise funds for a gymnasium to be named in honor of the "Dean of coaches" Dr. John Dorman. Six thousand alumni and other friends of Upper Iowa university throughout the country will be contacted in an effort to raise $400,000 for the facility. The Dorman Gym will pay tribute to the man who guided athletics at Upper Iowa for more than 57 years-the longest career of any coach at one school. "Doc" Dorman, a former Fayette dentist, started helping U. I. U. students with athletics in 1904.. and continued to coach football, baseball, and wrestling for more than half a century. The total estimated cost of the gymnasium ranges between $600,000 and $650,000. Any additional amount needed after the drive will be financed through other sources, says Dr. Eugene Garbee, president of Upper Iowa university. The L-shaped building with a barrel-shaped roof will have a permanent seating capacity of 3,000. It will fill a big need in the present U. I. U. athletic program, which is cramped for space, according to Dr. Garbee. Present plans call for the gym to include a main basketball court, an auxiliary court, a swimming pool, dormitory rooms, basement classroom, wrestling room, p. locker room for 600 baskets and numerous dressing rooms for varsity squads, students, coaches and of- ficals. In addition, the gym will feature a lundry room and three equipment rooms with forced-air drying facilities for equipment. The floor of the auxiliary gymnasium will be on the same level as the pool. A roll up wall between the two will permit spectator seating for swimming events. Another feature of the swimming pool is expected to be popular with students attending U. I. U. summer school. The south and west walls of the pool room may be raised so that the pool opens to the outside in summer. The north-south portion of the "L" will parallel along Madison Street. The east-west portion of the building housing the two playing courts and the pool will span 230 feet. In addition, a foyer with offices will measure 55 by 110 feet. Over this will be much-needed dormitory space for male students. Dr. Garbee said that he hopes funds will be made available so that construction can start on the gymnasium this year.
