Capitol Area Program
Has Indefinite Status
By JOHN McKELWAY
Star Staff Writer
The future expansion of fa
cilities for those who labor on
Capitol Hill remains indefinite.
Ideas and rumors and plans
are plentiful but no one, appar
ently, Is ready to say what the
next move will be.
Mario Campioll, assistant
architect of the Capitol, a gentle
man with a deep respect for the
Capitol, recently found himself
in hot water by dreaming in
public. He told a group of
Capitol Hill residents that some
day a new Capitol might have
to be constructed and perhaps,
the old one could become a type
of meseum.

I never realized what a BIG difference
good hearing could make in my appear- I vl «

and wrinkles, causes headaches and nerv- :

Glasses have changed all that. And, best fs,
of all, they look just like my regular
glasses. If you’ve put off getting a hear-

While he was thinking In
terms of the year 2000—“ an
architect has* to think ahead,”
he said—a number of people,
some Congressional leaders,
apparently thought bulldozers
would be at It by Spring.
Imaginary Plan
Mr. Campioll patiently points
out that a new Capitol building
Is strictly In the Imaginary
realm.
But he adds that someday
the old Capitol building will
reach a point where it could
not take any more additions.
On paper is a plan to extend
the West Front. There are no
plans to extend the East Front
again. It would be possible, Mr.
Campioll feels, at some date in
the distant future, to place ad
ditions on the north and south
ends of the building. But that
would probably, he suggests, be
all the Capitol could take.
The firmest of all future
plans for construction on the
Hill involves the $39 million
Madison Memorial and under
ground annex to the Library of
Congress.
Rayburn in Background
Not only have plans been
drawn but the project is con
tained in legislation. Mysteri
ously, it has not budged an inch
since hearings were held on the
proposition last year before a
House Public Works subcomit
tee.
Missing from the picture is,
of course, the late Speaker
Rayburn. He was behind the
Madison Memorial concept. He
was responsible for the East
Front extension and the con
demnation of two blocks im
mediately south of the Library
of Congress across Independ
ence avenue S.E.
Speaker McCormack appar
ently is taking a long look at
the various plans he has in
herited. He is chairman of the
powerful House Office Build
ing Commission which passes
on future construction on the
House side of the Capitol.
A rumor persists that the
Madison Memorial will not be
constructed on the site now
being cleared, just east of the
old House Office Building.
Madison Issue Controversial
One idea, expressed by one
source close to the commis
sion, is to raze the Methodist
Building at 100 Maryland ave
nue N.E. and place the MacU*
son Memorial on that spofr*
between the new Senate Offiflß
Building and the Supreme
Court.
A new library annex, mean
while, would go up across Inde
pendence avenue.
But this plan, like the others,
is within the haze that has
settled over the topic of future
Government expansion on The
Hill.
Three key individuals behind
the original Madison Memorial
bill all deny there has been
any change or that the bill is
in any trouble. These include
J. George Stewart, architect of
the Capitol; Representative
Jones, Democrat of Alabama
and chairman of the subcom
mittee handling the bill, and
Representative Smith, Demo
crat of Virginia and author of
the bill.
“These things just take
time,” reports Mr. Smith.
