BOASTS LARGE DOMK
Ashlund is again to Hie front
for honors. As far as can be
learned from investigations, the
Chautauqua building in Lithla
Park, built six years' ago at ail ex
pense of $20,01)0, not only has
the largest dome in the United
States without a supporting pil
lar but is the only building of
its kind in the country. E. O.
Smith, the architect who planned
the building, . states that to his
knowledge iliere"ar.e no duplicates
of the superstructure used in the
I The dome Is constructed on the
I egg shell principal of equal
strength at all points and Is able
to withstand enormous pressure.
I Mr. Smith stated that it would be
almost Impossible to weaken the
dome by pressure exerted from
the top. Snow, a danger to many
roofs, has very little effect on the .
Chautauqua building dome be
cause of the uniform pressure ex
erted ut all points of the roof.
Uniform pressure has a tendency
to strengthen the dome rather
than weaken it, Mr. Smith said.
Although roiiie.wh.it resembling
the Mormon Tabernacle in Suit
Lake City in. exterior appearances
there is no comparison in, the style
of architecture, Mr. Smith states,
as the Tabernacle dome is con
structed on a different principal.
Mr. Smith states that supporting
rafters have recently been placed
in the Tain rliacle which jnukes
the Chautauqua building dome Its
peer regardless of classification
in architectural design.
It is believed by Mr. Sniilli that
if the original plans and specifica
tions for the Chautauqua build
ings had been followed there
would not be the possibilities for
echoes within -the building. A gal
lery was originally planned and it
is believed that such un Improve
ment would eliminate, the echo
now noticed within the building.
However, It is thought that a large
audience crowding the building
would absorb the sounds.

The board proposes to lease ,

In conjunction with ground lime

tion in cost per ton of the jime- j

The capacity of tho present
