While the high cost of living swept
the rest of the country, the architec-
ture department found many ways to
cut corners in the construction of the
Discovery House fSee page 1841.
The building, a 3,100-feet three-
bedroom house, was sponsored by the
Construction Research Center.
Dr. Ernest Buckley, director of the
center, said, "Thirty per cent less
water is required for the plumbing
system, but it is more effective than
In the winter, the refrigerator re-
jects hot air into the home and dur-
ing the summer, the excess air travels
outside the structure." The dish-
washer uses less than the normal
amount of electricity."
In addition to projects such as this,
the School of Architecture and De-
sign boasts a six-year professional
degree program with an enrollment
of 800 students.
The program is executed by a
faculty representing 33 different uni-
versities, 17 architectural schools and
local practicing architects serving as
adjunct professors and lecturers.
The one o'clock lectures in the
Jury Room of Swift Center have be-
come a tradition. Students and facul-
ty members describe their projects to
an audience in the large room. Dis-
tinguished professionals, including
foreign architects, contribute gen-
erouslly in these presentations.

The "move" was on everybody's
mind in the expanding art depart-
ment. After adding two new instruc-
tors to the faculty, the department
took a giant leap into the Fine Arts
Complex where they operated with
more space, new equipment and an
"We've got enough specialists in
each field that we have a well-round-
ed department," said William Turn-
er, acting department chairman. He
added that the Hmovef' provided a
"good layout of equipment in every
New kilns, iron-forging equip-
ment, glass-blowing apparatus and a
phototypesetter were among the aids
in the jewelry, clay and advertising
Twenty faculty members taught
approximately 450 majors in a varie-
ty of courses ranging from the study
of color to film making. New instruc-
tors included Pat Pepin in art history
and David Keens, jewelry and silver
Keens, a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Washington at Seattle, re-
vamped the jewelery class by adding
new materials and advanced methods
to the course.
The department gallery managed
to keep up with the growing depart-
ment as well as art from outside mu-
seums. "You canft teach art without
having things to look at," Turner
said, adding that, once settled in the
new building, the department would
seek a "much more ambitious gallery
The highlight of the gallery shows
was the exhibition of American art,
a project of art history professor
David Merrill. The show, which was
to formally open the new complex
in March, was collected from across
the country for the bicentennial-ori-
In a September showing, Dr. Mary
Hodnett, associate professor of the
department, co-ordinated work from
her weaving classes with a special
Three women from the Fort Worth
Weaver's Guild visited the gallery to
illustrate the spinning wheel and
spindle methods of spinning yarn.
Among the threads they used were
wool, cotton, fleece and horsehair.
The exhibit included batiks, silk
screen prints on cloth and three-di-
mensional objects. The weaving
course and exhibit proved to be most
popular with the students.
Students were exposed to the clas-
sic as well as modern experimental
films each Wednesday in the 'Tilm
as Art" series. Louis I-lock, series
sponsor, supplemented each show-
ing with a Monday night lecture.
An award-winning film maker and
the recipient of a National Endow-
ment for the Arts grant, Hock also
sponsored a showcase festival for
student films. Four films were se-
lected and high rental prices paid for
their use in an April showing.
