Legislators Here Utah's House of Representatives first official glimpse of the new hillside campus and buildings this morning Representatives, accompanied by several state and local officials, are here to see classrooms, laboratories, students and teachers in action. Since they were here last two years ago, four new classroom buildings have been finished and are now occupied. Also completed are the new heating plant and a stadium with a view. Here One Hour Lawmakers will be here from 9:30 to 10:30. After a guided tour of all facilities they will be welcomed and briefed on some of the school's most pressing problems by President William P. Miller. These will doubtless include mention of Weber's three bills now in legislative hoppers at the State Capitol for about 25 more acres of land south of here, operating expenses for the next two years and new buildings. The President will explain that urgently needed now are a new vocational building and a new gymnasium to further centralize activities on the upper campus site. It has already been pointed out often that this would bring about considerable savings to the state: (1) The Vocational Building and the Central Building could then be used to house various state functions for which the state is now paying rent; (2) the annexes and the West Central Building could be closed and sold; (3) operational and maintenance expenses for the Moench and Gymnasium buildings would cease since those structures would revert to the L.D.S. Church. Valued Now at $400,000 Value of lower campus buildings and land, excluding, of course, the Moench and Gym buildings, has been estimated at about $400,000. Sale of all or part of this would assist materially in financing needed new construction on the upper campus. President Miller is also expected to tell legislators that on the basis of children now born, enrollments here will have risen by 1975 to a point requiring at least 25 more acres for buildings and other facilities. The present rate of residential building in this area means ""we must buy it now or never,"" according to Dr. Miller. After the upper campus visit, members of Utah's 60-man House will be taken by bus to the lower campus where they will be shown at first hand the state's investment in buildings and lands there. Incidentally, today is a homecoming for at least one member of the lawmaking delegation. He is Speaker of the House Charles E. Peterson, former Weber student. Other Stops Planned Before returning to Salt Lake City to resume their duties, the solons were planning to visit other state institutions in this area, probably including the Utah State Industrial School, the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind, and the Utah Tuberculosis Sanatorium. Local officials accompanying the group during their Weber visit include members of the Ogden Chamber of Commerce, the Weber College Advisory Board, and also city and county officials. Several wives and husbands of legislators and staff members are also here.
