Mr. Curtis presented the plans for the dormitory and the food unit to serve all existing women's dormitories. He showed a sketch of the existing dormitories and the proposed new dormitory, showing the relationship of each to the plot of wound available for such dcormi- tories.

Mr. John T. Gillig and his associate, Mr. Ernst Johnson, archi- tects employed to plan and supervise the construction of the Audi- torium-Field House, were invited to come before the Board. Mr. Gillig presented briefly sketches of plans which were thought to be desirable, but had been changed, due to the estimated cost involved, He then presented the preliminary plans of the pro- posed Auditorium and basketball pavilion, including a swimming pool. The Auditorium part of the building was estimated to seat between 4,000 and 5,000 people, depending upon the location of the stage, and the seating capacity of the basketball pavilion would be approximate- ly 12,000. He detailed and explained auxiliary features necessary to a building of this type. Various features of the memorial part of the building for Kentucky heroes of World War II were explained as detailed in the plans. Questions were asked and answered, after which Messrs.
