President Sorensen stated the building board has approved priority to buildings for the auto mechanics and business departments, both of whom have outgrown the existing Provo campus and are in rented quarters auto mechanics in an off-campus ward house and the business department in classroom trailers on a parking lot of the Provo campus. Dr. Elray Nelson, Salt Lake City, chairman of the state building board, said architects and a mechanical engineering firm have been selected to prepare plans for the first two buildings on the new campus, which comprises 185 acres in Orem just east of 1-4 and north of 12th Soth. They are Lee C. Kness and Associates of Provo, Enteleki, Inc. of Salt Lake City, and Jack Heath of Salt Lake. City. Although no actual construction target was set by the building board, and must await bidding and acceptance Senate Committee On Veterans Affairs Will Meet This Week There will be a selection of classes for at least the General Education Department. You may wish to take courses in this area to fulfill your associates degree in general education requirements. As far ) as VA benefits are concerned, if you wish to be paid continuously through the first 17 days of June, receiving your check on June 1, this can be arranged. On the other hand, if you do not wish to be paid for the first 17 days of June, but desire to receive advanced payment for part of June and all of July, this also can be arranged.

The master plan for the new campus calls for buildings and land-scaping to follow the general contours of existing topography on the new campus, rather than move quantities of earth to make the land fit a particular campus plan. Board Chairman Nelson, at recent meeting in which the building board gave the ap- benefits to veterans by 13.6 per cent. They have also agreed to extend the amount of time that a veteran has to complete his program from 8 to 10 years. This would mean that anyone now eligible for the Viet Nam Veterans GI Bill who's eligibility would expire June 1, 1974, would not be allowed an additional two years time. All veterans are urged to call their senators now. Senator Moss 202-225-5251, Senator Bennett 202-225-5444, senator hartke 202-225-4822. It is of great importance that you call senator Hartke of Indiana. He is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs. They are meeting this week. So if you are interested in getting a pay raise, and-or in having the timelimit extended, call or send a telegram. It is a small cost for the far reaching benefits of citizenship. I i Sorensen proval, pointed out the $8 million already appropriated by the state legislature will probably construct the first two buildings plus some service roads, parking areas, and utility facilities. Ernest Dean of American Fork, research director for Utah Technical Collete and a veteran member of the Utah State Senate, has released a letter to the press in which he expressess concern as to how and when the rest of the new campus will be financed if it is estimated that the $8 million initial appropriation will only construct the first two buildigs. He also indicated that a year has gone by since the first appropriation, and that construction costs have steadily risen during that tie. His letter said it is important that a master plan and details for additional necessary funds be presented to the 1975 state legislature. The new campus in Orem was acquired by the state several years ago in preparation for necessary expansion fo Utah Technical College. Boxed in on 13 acres at its present Provo side, there no possibilty of expansion because to acquire adjoining land would have been either impossible or at a prohibitive cost, said President Sorensen.
