APPROPRIATION - UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE

AN ACT APPROPRIATING CERTAIN MONEY TO THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE FOR CONSTRUCTING AND EQUIPPING A BUILDING FOR THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND THE SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS ON THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.

WHEREAS, there exists a need for increased capacity at the University of Delaware; and

WHEREAS, the need is particularly critical in the School of Education and the School of Home Economics due to increased enrollment of students, and the demands for expanded research and extended services to resident students, in-service teachers, and organizations and agencies serving families and individual citizens throughout the State; and

WHEREAS, the need of the School of Education is emphasized by the acute shortage of teachers for the public schools of the State which imposes a responsibility on the University to lend maximum assistance to State and local school authorities in the solution of the problems confronting them; and

WHEREAS, the importance of the field of Home Economics

is widely recognized today for its contributions to commercial and industrial progress and the development of enlightened homemakers and teachers as foundations of happy homes and families; and

WHEREAS, the services of the School of Education and Home Economics are of concern to every part of the State and a large proportion of the citizenry; NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met (three-fourths of all the Members elected to each Branch thereof concurring therein):
