Ft)rmul dedication of the University of Kentucky's new Memorial Coliseum, a four million dollar building whose construction has required more than three years, will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 30. It will be dedicated to the
memory of the 9,265 Kentuckians who lost their lives in World War II.
Located on Euclid Avenue between Lexington Avenue and Rose Street, the mammoth, yellow-bric- k
structure has a seating capacity of 12,000 for basketball games and 15,000 for programs in which folding chairs may be placed on
the playing flx)r. Seating space for approximately 3X) persons is provided alongside the t,
e
d
of the total, are theatcr-tvp- e
cliairs, and the reswimming pool. All seats on the building's west side, approximately
mainder are bleacher-type- .
More than 80 percent of the Coliseum's permanent seats are at side court.
The building contains ticket sales offices, offices for the athletic director, football coach, basketball coach, all assistant coaches, swimming pool director, and the sports publicity office. Locker rooms for football, basketball, baseball
and all minor sports also are located in the new structure.
Excavation of the building site required removal of 40,000 cubic yards of earth and more than 10,000 cubic yards of rock. Construction required 1,000 cubic yards of concrete and more than 500 tons of reinforcing steel. Other
construction materials used in the building include 3,500,000 brick, 3,000 tons of structural steel, 2.3 acres of roofing, and two acres of tcrrazo flooring.
Measured from the Euclid Avenue side (the front), the Coliseum is 82 feet in height. Its acoustically-treate- d

Kernel goes to press, the toll for the current year is one death
and 13-- injuries.
Euclid, with two deaths (one at Hose, the other at Lime-b- oth
bordering the UK campus) was the second most dangerous street
in Lexington during the last five years.
Besides deaths and injuries, property damages have run into
thousands of dollars. Accidents last ear in which damage was
restricted to property totaled 1.327.
Fortunately, verv few accidents have occurred on the UK campus. But the danger is here at all times, especially since so many
students must cross drives on the way to classes. A warning and
a little caution might well prevent a serious accident lu re.
