The building campaign is aiming to provide a $160,000 office wing and faculty resi- dence. But the cost will be cut approximately in half with the uncompensated aid of an un- usual group of Jesuit Brothers of the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus. The brothers who have ac- quired basic building s k i I I s have given vivid testimony of their craftsmanship with work at Seattle University, Jesuit High at Portland, Portland Re- treat House and the Jesuit Novitiate in Sheridan, Ore. The Jesuits will donate la- ber amounting to n e a r I y $80,000. The remaining capital (approximately $80,000) will be loaned interest free by five members of the Associates' beard. The campaign task is to en- list 80 new associate members at $100 per year to underwrite the new addition. Building has become synony- mous with Bellarmine through the years. It all began when Rev. David McAstocker, S.J., was assigned as pastor of St. Leo Parish and instructed to build a separate high school for boys. Up until that year, 1926, tim Catholic boys of Ta- spokesman, when Father Mc- Astocker made the announce- ment about the new school, "the earth began to rumble." Many of the city's Catholics plainly didn't want the school built. Prayers, wishes and hopes wouldn't pay the con- struction costs. Father McAstoeker and a number of businessmen re- ported the site for the new school would be near an un. paved eowpath called Union Avenue. The priest purchased 20 acres for $8,000. The steady loyalty of the businessmen not only accounted for the construction of Bellarmine's first building, but also began to melt away local opposition. Father McAstocker b e g a n writing a daily column for The Tacoma News Tribune, but not until many years later did he admit why and how he man- aged the burden. "I stayed up 1 a t every night, sometimes all night, getting my column off," h e recalled. ' ' I t w a s strictly a matter of paying Bellarmine's g r o c e r y bill." The Philomathea Club gave generous aid. In 1943 Bellarmine was final- ly cleared of its hidden bur- den, the red column Since the war, five buildings have been erected. In 1956 it became apparent to Rev. Frank Toner, S.J., that the rapidly expanding needs of the community would have to be matched with equal expan- Friday, Feb. 21, 1964 THE PROGRESS--II uilding Program Underway sion in education facilities. The Rev. J o h n Sneeringer, S.J., was appointed as financial di- rector and the Associates of Bellarmine grew from his early counsel. Associates' members agreed to contribute a minimum of $100 per year on an invitation "to back real education with real support." Within two years the group had exceeded the 209 mark. Contributions to date have reached $163,592, serving such diverse capital needs as addi- tional classrooms, gymnasium lobby, McAstocker Auditorium, tennis courts and boiler repairs. THE BELLARMINE campus shown in this aerial view is located near Tacoma's Cheney Stadium. The Bellarmine gymnasium and the athletic field have been constructed through the aid of the Bellarmine Boosters, who raise funds for athletic purposes. Associates of Bellarmine raise funds for various capital needs. THE PROPOSED new wing of the Bellarmine faculty building in the architect's sketch will contain 16 bedrooms, administrative and academic offices and a full basement. The expansion will allow for the increased capa city of 450 students over the next three years. E. L. lk'IH!a and Associates are architects.

New Altar Is Installed In College Chapel Mr. ANGEL COLLEGE, Ore. --A new altar that enables the celebrant to face the people while offering the Mass has been put into use in the Mt. Angel College chapel for the daily student Mass. Special permission of the archbishop was granted for the innovation, which was intro- duced at the beginning of the Advent season. According to Father Cyprian Cooney, college chaplain, the new position of the altar enables students to better understand what is tak- ing place during the Mass, and thus brings about a closer union of the celebrant and the Christian community in offer- ing a common sacrifice. Father Cyprian bears con- fessions and offers Mass daily during the school year. He also maintains regular office hours in the centrally located Student Commons building on the cam- pus.
