Price Of Progress
'Lounge Lizards9 Cramped
By Hammering Workmen
With about half of the main
lounge in the Union being rapidly
boxed off, many students last
week looked a little perplexed at
the workmen's invasion.
What has been the TV end of
the Union is being metamorphosed
into a cafeteria serving area, said
Duane Lake, managing director
of the Union. '
Temporary partitions are going
up to close off this section of the
lounge. This is primarily to keep
out dust and section off work
areas, Lake said.
Hammers and drills are also
much in evidence in the basement
of the Union where work is being
done in the old game roeni area.
Original plans did not call for this
work to begin this early, Lake
said. Weather conditions have
slowed work on the addition to the
extent that in order not to fall
behind schedule, workmen have
started in on the old Union build
ing. President's Breakfast
Facilities to be offered in the
Union after completion of the ad
dition were explained to about 65
heads of campus organizations Sat
urday morning at the President's
Breakfast, Lake said.
A new sound highlighted the
breakfast, as a stereophonic sound
system was demonstrated.
Three music rooms in the ad
dition will replace the one in the
old Union, said Lake.
One room will be for classical
music, one for popular music and
a third will feature the new stere
ophonic sound set up.
