Photograph(s): Architects' drawings of the new Industrial Research Foundation and the heating test house are shown above. Both buildings are now under construction on the east campus south of the radio transmitter. p. 1 -- Epsilon Kappa Rho lives in this house at 3607 Clough Place, which was finished in 1951. Before that time the sorority lived in a number of houses, including what is now the Alpha Gamma Gamma house. p. 4 -- A 'hot' violin: Carol Calkins, senior music major, is shown presenting James Caesar, associate professor in music, with a 'hot' violin. The violin has a built-in thermometer to tell how 'hot' the music being played into it is. This was presented to Mr. Caeser at Fiske Hall Monday. / photo by Campbell. p. 5 -- Bob Hodgson, outstanding Shocker sophomore center, will miss the Munies three-game home stand this week because of a severe ankle sprain. The rangy Hodgson was instrumental in the Shocker's three straight wins over Central Conference foes last week. Climbing to the number three slot in scoring, Hodgson has bucketed a total of 51 points and a 8.5 game average. p. 8 -- Uncaptioned photograph of Jack Mitchell. p. 9 -- Co-captains: Leading the Shockers on the court against Creighton tonight will be sparkplug and floor general Gary Thompson (right) and sharpshooting Paul Scheer. Both men are playing their last year for the Shockers. Scheer is rated number two in scoring for Ralph Miller's charges with 87 points and, barring injuries, is expected to be a contender for all-Missouri Valley honors. Thompson is the steady man of the club and is number four in scoring with 51 points. An aggressive performer, Thompson has been known to play his best when the pressure was greatest. p. 10
