There are two reasons that the
United States flaunts only 16 com

cause the government cannot
spare precious uranium for
would-be private experiments.
The other is because the reac

expensive to construct and install.
Two years ago, however, North
Carolina State College broke
through the first barrier. With

The big new $850,000 Wil
liam H. Ackland Memorial
Art building moved a step
closer to completion yesterday
This new development came
after Controller William D.
Carmichael Jr. suggested to
Chancellor Robert B. House that
plans for the proposed art mus
eum be accelerated.
The University was designated
as the site for the art building in
1948 when the United States Cir
cuit Court of Appeals reversed an
earlier decision of the lower
courts to give the $1,500,000 Ack
land bequest to Rollins College
Originally drawn up in 1938,
the will left the money to Duke
University, but the bequest was
subsequently refused. An earlier
will designated that the money
be left to either Duke University,
the University of North Carolina
or Rollins College.
The money was invested in
1948 and has been drawing inter
est since that time.
"It seems to me we should im
mediately reach some decision as
to the exact size and location of
this building together with a de
termination of the size and loca
tion of the future Playmakers'
Theatre," Carmichael said in a
memorandum to the Building
"It now looks as though $850,
000 to $900,000 will be available
for the Ackland Building," Car
michael said. "The remaining
funds, under the terms of Mr.
Ackland's will remains in trust."
These funds will be expanded
for art purchases and teaching ac
tivities calculated to broaden the
understanding and appreciation
of the fine arts throughout this
section of the country, he added.
Site for the proposed building
probably will be on Columbia St.
behind the Carolina Theatre. The
