This he said was no doiibt oaiised by the rising costs of steel and reduction in steel production, besides the great quantity of steel which wdll be used by this part of the build- inlng to be erected.. This has been labeled Phase One of the two phase construction plan and will amount to $5,166,160. $4.9 million dollars will come from the state — the rest to be paid by the college with funds realized in a referendiun. It is reported that the well and the elevator will have to be re-bid as the college received only one bid on each of these items. The college will have to seek out the Illinois Board of Higher Edu¬ cation and the Illinois Junior Col¬ lege Board for approviil of the re- vi.sod iMidgel if more money is needed it inay be taken frcwn the Phase Two funds and paid back when that building of this phase is ready to start.
