After 14 years of toil, Elden Tefft, Kansas University professor of art, was still working at his monumental task of creating a bronze sculpture of Moses, a 10-foot-high, 1.5-ton effort. Tefft and his students had constructed the figure with steel tubing and styrofoam overlaid with wax and clay, and it was hoped casting could be done in the near future. Many contended the work would become an "outstanding addition to the campus."
