recorders, and a recording studio, have

SUMMER PROGRESS ON CAMPUS
INSPECTED BY ROGER GORDON,
STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT...
"With so much accomplished in the
past year, much more should he
within our reach this year."
"I realize that many of the development projects now under way at
Augsburg were dreamed of many years ago. The fact that they are
becoming a reality during my time as a student makes me grateful to
all who helped make these accomplishments possible.
"After being away for the summer months, it gave me a thrill to
return to campus and observe just how much had been accomplished
in such a short time.
"Most of the supporting beams for Si Melby Hall are in place.
The new observatory shell will soon be fully assembled and the telescope installed. Sound-proof booths and tape recorders in the new
language laboratory will be ready as classes begin. These are the most
conspicuous campus construction projects I toured.
"Each project has a certain excitement in itself. New areas of
learning will be available that students like myself would otherwise
have missed. This makes each new development project especially
important this year and every year.
"I believe Augsburg students will be quick to realize this as the)
return for the fall semester. That's why I say, with so much accomplished in the past year, much more should be within our reach
SI MELBY HALL, the
multi-purpose auditorium-gymnasium, takes
form in steel and concrete. During Roger's
inspection tour. Superintendent Andrew Ham-
ness said, "We're on
schedule despite the
carpenter strike setback." This makes the
March 1961 completion
date quite definite.
