H. H. Armsby, R egistra r and Stu dent Advisor of the School of M ines, made a brief ta lk on th e subj ect, "Town a nd Gown." H e stressed the point t hat there should not be a ny great distincti on between "town," as represe nted by the business men a nd citizens of Roll a, a nd "gown," as rep rese nted by th e faculty and stud ents ¡of the School of M ines. He emphasized the need for coo peration betwee n t he school and the town in the future, and stated that Rol la had always coope rated with th e institution in the past. Arm sby also pointed out the great va lu e of the sc hool to Ro ll a in a co mmercia l way. Charles L. Woods, editor of the Ro ll a Herald, spea kin g on beha lf of Mayor W. D. J ones, who cou ld not be present, m ade an address of we lco me to Prof. Chedsey an d Mrs. Chedsey. He pointed out th at Roll a had always stood behind the sc hool in everyt hin g th at it attem pted, declari ng tha tit was throu gh the efforts of Rolla citizens th at th e sc hool was estab li shed th ere. Woods then presented a bouquet of fall fl owe rs to M rs. Chedsey. President Schweer introduced Director Chedsey, who expressed gratification for the we lcome extend ed to him and Mrs. C hedsey. H e sa id he wouid exert eve ry effort possible for the betterment of th e school and of Rolla .

A Message to the Alumni from the Director So m any kind letters have co me to me from th e alumni th a t I a m glad to have thi s op portunity to address a message to you as a group. I , of course, h ave known very favo rab ly of the M issouri School of Mines and Meta llurgy for over thirty years. The co rdial assura nc es of help and supp ort from the faculty here a nd the alumni have been a most gratifying welcome for me to thi s new position. I sincerel y hope that with this help I can measure up to your expectations of keeping the reputa ti on of th e School on a hi gh plane. Briefly, the aff airs of the School are, in ge neral, in good sh ape, both financi a ll y and from th e st an dp oint of prestige. Some alumni , as th eir personal fin ances have permitted, h ave contributed in very helpfu l ways to student life, especiall y throu gh the past few yea rs of the dep ression. With our present enlarged enroll ment, unqu estionabl y th e highest in th e history of th e School, additiona l finances a re going to be necessa ry. Pl ans are being made to ask for increased ai d from the sta te, and alumni contributi ons for loa n fund s and for found at ions become increasingly useful with this growth of the School. I shall welcome th e opportu nity as occasions may offer.

by RICHARD PROUGH With th e coming of fall, it is a n atural fee ling to have our thoughts turn back to school. For so me, the coming of September mea ns th a t a nother nin e months seige with Calculus, Physics, and the like is just beginning, but for a host of others, September brings only memories of the days when they too were stud ents. As th e season roll s on and th e wea ther ' beco mes crisper and cooler, th ey think more and more of the sc hool th at th ey once attendedits life, its fri ends, and its assoc iations. The smack of a footb all also revives th ose memories-moments of fl ee ting glory a re recap tured and on th e wings of reve ri e, they go bac k into the hi story th at was written while th ey we re stud ents. It is for th ese grads that a special occasion is planned eac h fall , a time whe n they may return to the ca mpus to renew old fri endship s and strik e up new ones. To thi s occasion we give th e name " H omecoming," and to it a re in v ited all men who at so me time called this, the Missouri School of Mines, their school.

fo'r OCTOBER , 1937

SPORTS Because of del ay in publi ca ti on of the first iss ue we a re a ble to bring to you the results of th e first two fo otball games. The Miners ope ned their seaso n by defea ting the South ern Illinois Teachers from Carbonda le, 27 to 0, here at R oll a. Approximately 1000 fans saw th e Illinois tea m hold t he Miners eve n in the first qu a rter onl y to weake n as th e game a dva nced. T he Miners crossed th e Ca rb onda le goa l line in th e second quarter a nd then ca me back after th e half interm ission to sink the foe under a delu ge of line sm as hes, forward pa sses and end run s. H arl ey Ladd, hu sky halfback, we nt around end fr om t he nin e-ya rd stripe in the second qu a rter for th e first score, after a se ri es of line pl ays ha d put the ball in sco ring position. Ladd then ki cked th e extra poi n t. In the third qu a rter Ladd aga ll1 crossed th e goal line, thi s time on a la teral from Wa lter Koziatek, the M iners' 142-pou nd quarterback. He aga in ki cked th e ex tra point, m a king the score read , M iners 14, Carbondale O. A pass, Otis T aylor to Bob Nev ins, was res ponsible for the th ird touchdown in the last pe ri od. T he pass was good for 21 ya rd s and Nev ins' sprint for the pay-off st ripe was good for an additional nin e. With but two minutes left to play in th e ga me T ay lor aga in took to the air, tossing a long pass to Ca rl Lintner, end, who stepped to the threeya rd strip e before he was downed by a fast Carbondale second a ry. H a rt, a fres hman bac k, th en too k th e ova l ove r on a ce nter sma sh for the final counter. Bu zz T ay lor ki cked th e ex tra point. The M iners had ve ry little troub le with t he C a rbond a le offense a nd at no t ime wa s the Illinois eleve n in d anger of scoring, Severa l tim es the Carbonda le backs were brought down ten and twelve ya rd s back of the li ne by th e alert Mi ner line. Thi s, in addition to the poor bloc king held t he Carbondale team to 41 ya rd s ga ined to sc rim mage. T he Miners had 227 y ards on th e bl ack side of t he ledge r. The Miners had 13 first down to the Illinois 7, Incidentall y seve ra l of the Carbond ale first downs were th e resul t of penalties assessed to the M iners. The offici als penalized t he Silver a nd Gold team eight times for a tota l of 90 yards. The officials were Page Lewis, R ed Orr, and L. B. T hompso n. The Miners did not fare so we ll in the St. Lou is Univers ity ga me under

the fl oodli gh ts at W a lsh Memo ri al Stadium , showing very li ttle punch to lose, 32 -0. The Miners we re too little for th e hu sky Billi ken team , being ou tweighed a pproxi ma tely 18 pounds per m a n. H eld to a 6 to 0 sco re in th e fir st peri od by a to ugh Min er defense, th e Bi lls fin a ll y h ad th eir ow n way after th e ten-minu te in termi ssion at th e half. Returning to t he fi eld th e St. Lou isa ns ran wild , sco rin g four times to bring t heir adva ntage up to fi ve touchdowns, W ith but four minutes to play in t he las t peri od th e M iners fin all y crossed th e pay-off marker. From the start of th e ga me it was obvious t hat th ere was going to be plenty of scoring. The M iners mad e two first down s in succession a nd were on thei r way to a th ird when th ey we re penalized 15 ya rd s for cli pping.


U nable to m a ke up t he lost ground , the Miners had to kick . The Bill s took th e ba ll on th e 30-ya rd line and drove down th e fi eld to t he Miner five without a letd ow n. H a rri s fumbled a nd Jim W il so n, M iner end , recovered.

by Kozia tek three ya rd s from th e line. Bumps Wal ker, on t he fi rst play, snea ked through the middle of th e line for th e score. Tatsc h's ki ck for the point was good and th e sco re read 19 to O.

Oti s Taylor kicked out of da nge r, but the Bill s came back strong with another drive th a t netted them fi ve st raight first downs a nd a touchdow n. Short ga ins by Tatsch and Cochra ne preceded H arri s' di ve ove r the goal line. Wa lker's try for the ex tra point was bloc ked by Axthelm.

In t he las t period the M iners s ta rted a pa ssing attack th at was qu ell ed by the Bil ls when Bill Cochrane intercepted Di ck Cunningham's pass. Coc hran e broke through tackl e on the next pla y, reve rsed hi s fi eld and 25 ya rd s from the goa l line, tossed a lateral to O'Su lli va n, who sprinted the rem a inin g di stance.

With the exce p tio n of Tatsc h and Bill Cochrane, a n entire new B illiken team took th e fi eld a t t he sta rt of the secon d qu a rter. Coach Bullman then replaced hi s entire tea m with second Di ck Cunn ingham , fres hstringers. man M iner bac k, helped the M iners out of severa l dangerous spots wit h three long ki cks, all of which we re over 50 yards. Twice the B ill s were in th e M in er territory but th e Silver a nd Gold tea m repulsed th e inva ders wi th little difficulty. Once the Bill s fumbl ed and the M iners recove red, and the other t im e the Mi ner line held for downs. The startin g lineup s for both team s returned to t he fi eld after the half, and the B ill s lost lit t le ti me in scoring. T a kin g th e ball back to th e Miner 25 -ya rd st ri pe on the k ickoff, th e Bill s we nt a round end an d off tack les to finall y wind up with th e sco re. Denny Cochrane we nt over for th e touchdown. " Ta lker's k ick was aga 1l1 bl oc ked. Less t ha n two minutes la ter th e Bi ll s ga ined possession of t he pigsk in in th e m iddle of the fie ld. Two plunges moved it up 15 ya rd s, then Coch ran e passed to T atsch for 27 ya rd s who was ca ught

A noth er pa ssing atta ck was st a rted by the M iners but Buzz Taylor's pass was intercepted by Bill Foehr, who ga lloped 55 ya rds for th e las t Bill iken touc hd own. The ki ck was good and the Bi ll s led 32 to O. T hen th e M iners took the ki c koff, a nd und er th e lea ders hip of Jim (Stooge) Kiesler, drove 50 yards for a score, most of the di stance being ga ined through the air route. Oti s Ta y lor fin all y sco red on a n end run from the nine-yard stri pe. Jim W il so n, junior end , was hurt 111 th e first half of the ga me a nd as t he result wi ll be out of th e lineup for th e nex t four wee ks.
