University Postpones Creating New Yard
The Administration has postponed indefinitely further plans to convert the House area into a second Yard. Because the necessary funds are not available, the University has called off work on the plan by Hideo Sasaki, professor of Landscape Architecture.
Originally, the University, which owns most of the streets between Mt. Auburn St. and Memorial Drive near the Houses, had hoped to enclose the area with fences and gates to prohibit regular automobile traffic. The second Yard, with landscaping and a small amount of business traffic, would resemble the present Yard.
However, installation of gates, landscaping, and different paving was found to be too expensive at present.
