Elaborate Plan For Development Of Campus ·At University Worked Out By Professor From Yale; Many New Buildings Proposed . A proposed plan for development of tho-University campus has been submitted to. the University by James Ward, Yale University professor and' professional planning consultant. · . ; Not a' master plan, it makes recommendations only for the next 10'to 15 years. Ward warned that "as those years race info the present', the plan must be revised to adapt itself to developments now unforeseen." " The plan is divided into throe stages of development. It calls for the re-grouping, relocation, and re-housing of several colleges and departments,' to coordinate, closely related departments and to meet growing needs. ,The plan recommends gradual construction of new buildings for the Colleges of Business Admin- {stration and Education, and an · Arts and Sciences building housing the social sciences. It proposes new buildings for the Intitule of fjdence and Technology, the physical plant, and for departments of agriculturr and military art. It advises the University to construct " a new Infirmary, Student Union, Field House, and journalism building, aj well as new wings to the engineering and business admin- · istration buildings. Additional men's end women'.* housing Would be constructed under the plan. Gym Proposed Ward suggested constructing a new women's g"mnasium ad- ja.ent to the present Field House, .with a swimmine pool between the two buildings. While the planner recognized the need, some time in the future beyond his plans, for an auditorium, he stated that partments of botany and bacteriology be moved there, and that a small greenhouse be built on the south side at basement level for their use: Ac . second step would be construction of an Animal Industry building now being designed New Heating Plant Since the University's heating plant is reaching its capacity, construction of new buildings .would necessitate construction of a new heating 'plant. This is the proposed -third step in stage one, oi the plan. Ward recommended thai a-iiew plant Ue built on the south side of Dickson Street between the new Physical Sciences building and the 'Institute of Science and Technology. Ue suggested tha in the future the Physical Sciences building be turned over to the physical plant, unifying the administrative offices of the physical plant department, its shops, garages, and heating plant. . The fourth step recommended is a new office building for the Institute of Science and Technology, to be, located on Dickson Street cast of Ordark, and the next step would be a new building for the Institute and research on the site of the present heating plant and shops. After that, the present site of the Institute could be cleared for an engineering building housin shops and foundry. The College of Engineering would then be able to move machinery from Engineering Hall, where the vibration is undesirable, the planner stated. Dormitories Recommended A new women's dorniitury is recommended ' as the next step.

He also suggested construction of a new drive between and roughly parallel ti Garland Avenue and Stadium Drive d u r i n g the second stage of thn campus development. , Although beyond the limits of Pis plan, he mentioned the need for a chapel and a new College of Agriculture building. Enrollment Expected The entire plan is based on the assumptions that enrollment at the University will reach 6,000 within 10 years; that the proportion of men and women to the total en- iollment-will remain constant, .and that the proportional college enrollment to the University's total enrollment will remain constant. , Ward has been on the Fayetteville campus ' of the University since December, conferring with officials to determine needs of the various colleges and departments, ·nd drawing up the plan. While 'his plan makes no specific architectural recommendations, Waid said that the University should aim for a general impression 'Of architectural harmony In materials, color, and massing, although not necessarily a similarity in style in the buildings: "The goal should not be imitation of fine effects used elsewhere, but the maintenance and development of the especial character of the University of Arkansas," he declared. · In detail, the steps recommended at each of the three stages of the plan are: " The first step would be the carrying- out of plans which already have been drawn for remodeling and constructing an addition to University Hall, which w,nuld provide room for administrative offices now in the library. The library could then expand. Ward also recommended that w.ith the departure of the department of physics from the basement of University Hall, the de- Carnall Hall, where maintenance and repair costs arc becoming uneconomical, could then be replaced by a ne-.v building for the department of military art, the plan states. The next step recommended is a new south wing to the Business Administration building, which would harmonize with the rest of th? building. The physics department would be moved there, according to the plan's recommendations. , With the completion of the new School of Law building, theirie- partments of history, geography, political , science and sociology would be moved to the present Law building. This would not only effect a functional grouping of the four related departments, but would make possible expansion of the departments of chemistry and business administration. The plan also suggests that the department of zoology be moved to the agriculture building, to carry out another logical grouping of departments and to give chemistry still morf. room. The final step of the first stage of development would be construction of two men's dormitories of permanent type--the first of a proposed group of five, each of which would house 125 men. One of the first two would be on the brow of the ridge south of Gregson .Kail and the other cither south or northwest of Qrcgson Hall. Purchase of some land adjacent to the campus also was j recommended as the final step ol stage one of the plan.
