MODERN DORM FOR WOMEN: The new six-story dormitory on Observatory St. changes entirely the skyline view at the end of E. Huron St. Built to house 525 coeds, the structure has simple functional lines, and will have a flat roof. More or less the stepchild of the contractors, the dormitory is the least advanced of all the new campus buildings. Forty per cent complete now, the structure may be ready for occupancy by next fall, depending on the availability of labor, materials and furnishings. Estimated costs of construction has been set at approximately $2,300,000 but the building is financed on a self-liquidating basis.
