Allcott said the art depart

bad for work inside.

COLONIAL STYLE . j
"We felt that the colonial style, 1
in calling up historical thoughts,
would not seek to inspire o-ludents
through expression of a' spirit of j
our times," Allcott said. J
"The University has adopted the i
colonial style for recent buildings
in the belief that adherence to j
this style -.secures harmony. We j
see in architectural history that
beauty is not so tyrannical," he:
"In spite of such feelings as I j
have noted, I want to state our;
optimism about the building. We J
