Martin New face on US capitoL Exterior completed By JOHN MOLLESON New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTONThe nation capitol has a new face of whit Georgian marble which will serve as a backdrop for the in auguration of the next presiden and it is hoped of his succes sors for hundreds of years The gleaming hew f acadet 325 feet to the east of the old Eas Front is an exact reproduction of the historic sandstone exter ior which was begun in 1793 and and completed in 1829 Twentyfour monolithic col umns of the original centra portico and every last detail of the East pilas ters pediment cornices cof copies in marble preserving in durable stone the designs of the early architects This transformation of the East Front has been accompa nied by a cleaning of the marble exteriors of the House and Sen ate wings and a scraping re pairing and repainting of the great first such reno vation these structures have had since their completion in 1865 THIRTYTWO LAYERS of paint were removed from the dome It was discovered that through the years the shade of paint on the dome and the East Front had been gradually changed from oyster white to a sort of tattletale gray To keep the capitol a uniform shade the painters had been forced to match the steadily deepening grime on the Massachusetts marble of the two legislative wings Because of the pristine condi tion of all the present marble the color of the dome has been restored to oyster white The removal of the thick paint layers has exposed the crisp detail of its castiron col umns and capitals And the or namentation of the East Front buried under successive layers of paint since 1819 is now more sharply visible in marble than it was in the crumbing painted sandstone In the opinion of the architect of the capitol J George Stew art the effect of the million improvement has been to re store the majesty and dignitj of the nations most historic building IN ADDITION the legislators have gained two acres of usefu floor space as a result of the 325 foot 65 new of fices and committee rooms new restaurant facilities and a pri vate corridor on the gallery floor linking the Houseand Sen ate wings This interior con struction is scheduled to be com pleted by the end of 1961 As another part of the project the capitol foundations were ex tended 50 feet below the East Plaza to take care of possible underground parking for 1900 cars A million appropriation was provided by Congress for an underground terminal of the new subway running be tween the Senate and the Senate Office Building This construe tion required the removal of the steps leading from the East Plaza to the Senate wing The steps are back in place adjac cnt to an excavation for the sub way tunnel SATELLITE SILENT WASHINGTON UPI Tech
