        have been encouraging gifts from
        p u b I i c spirited corporations and
        other business firms, as well as from
        foundations and family trusts.
          Two gentlemen who have been
        especially generous of their time and
        energy, both in helping raise money
        and planning the building, are F.
        J. Sensenbrenner and A. J. Horlick.
        When the building is finally up and
        in use, these men will deserve our
        sincere appreciation.
          Altogether more than $1,700,000
        has been raised. But the Center will

        comes in. As alumni we take pride
        in our University's victories and ac-
        complishments. We feel good when
        the legislature puts up the money to
        build some long overdue academic
        buildings  (even though we kick
        about our tax bills).
          It comes down to this: Some of
        our friends have said in public that
