And many a v isito r as we ll as students ha ve t rod these ste ps, for t he min eral mu se um th a t is loca ted on thi s floor is outsta ndin g a mong the points of interes t on th e M. S. M. campus. But th ough th e mu seum is showy, still it contains onl y one of th e geologic collec ti ons, totali ng a n es timated va lu e of $45,000, whi ch th e department has accumul a ted through th e yea rs to so g reat a n ex tent th a t now it is no longe r abl e to house th em adequ a tely. Concurrent with the founding of th e school in 1871 a rose the need for geologic specimens. At that time geology and its rela ted subj ec ts did not constitute a se pa rate department, but was taught, with th e aid of specimens gathered by the fac ulty, by Col. J. W. Abert, Prof. of Mathematics, Geo. D. Emerso n, Prof. of Civi l a nd Mine Engineering, and Direc tor C. P. William s, acting State Geologist, each of whom shared the burden equ all y . It was not until 1892 that the dep a rtment of geology was ass igned to one professor. Then, C. P. Conrad , Prof. of Chemistry a nd Meta llurgy, was given the res pon sibility for teac hing a ll th e necessa ry courses in geology and minera logy. In the foll ow ing year, as chemistry was se pa ra ted from mining and metallurgy, geologic slJ bj ec ts were integrated into the latter depa rtm ent, whi ch was hea ded by Prof. H. K . L andi s. With the co ntinu al growth of th e sc hool, geology fin a ll y gained its rightful positi on when in 189 7 th e first Professo r of Geology a nd Mining, George E. Ladd, ass um ed hi s duties of professo r and Directo r of th e school. In th e suc ceedin g t we nty-four years th e depa rtm ent was hea ded by L. S. Gri swold , 1907-1910, and G. H. Cox, 1910-1 920. It was under th ese two men , pa rti cul arl y during the ad mini str at ion of Prof. Cox, that a stable and effici ent depa rtm ent was erec ted. When in 1921 Dr. C. L. Dake bega n hi s a bl e m a nage ment of th e departm ent, unu sual grow th and ex pa nsion , characteri stic of th e depa rtm ent toda y, began.

M.S.M. ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BANQUET The a nnu al ba nqu et of the M . S. M. Alumni Associ a tion was held Saturday eve ning, October 23 rd , a t th e H otel E dwin Long. The ba nqu et followed th e football ga me betwee n th e Miners and Kirk svill e, a nd in spite of th e so mew ha t di sa ppointing res ult of a t ie game, the alumni we re imbu ed with a spirit whi ch has not been see n on this cam pu s in m any a yea r. After a t yp ical Ed win Long repas t, the mee tin g was ca lled to ord er by the Toast maste r, R obe rt ( P at) Cummin gs, '05, aft er whi ch each m emb er present a rose a nd gave his class a nd present affili ations. Following this, at the sugges tion of th e to as tm as ter, a two minute peri od of silence was obse rve d in honor of th e memory of one of M. S. M.'s most emin ent faculty a nd a lumni , Prof. Geo rge R eginald D ea n, who, to quote th e wo rd s of th e to as tm aste r, "was a m a n much more th an an inst ru ctor, kee n witted , good hea rted, a nd broad mind ed, always willing to help th e stud ent in trouble." The speaker of the eve ning, our new Director, Mr. W. R. Chedsey, was prese nted to th e a lum ni by Mr. Cummings. Prof. Chedsey spoke on the pla nning of a definit e program for th e school which would be ba sed on th e principles th at, " first , th ere should be a poli cy ag reed to by all, second, th a t we shou ld m a ke ha ste slowly, a nd third , th at th e methods and ideas which prove impracti ca l should be sc ra pped . . . . The Administrator's job is not to prov ide th e motive powe r, but is to orga ni ze tho se groups who shall , through their whole-hea rted cooperation, move th e sc hool forwa rd with a more united front. An enginee r will agree that th e attack of a ny engin ee ring probl em is first , to obtain all the fac ts in volved, seco nd , to organize a nd evalu a te th em , a nd third, to build the structure up on definitely so und found a ti ons." Th e speaker closed by th a nking th e asse mbly for th eir coopera ti on, and pledgin g hi s co ntinu ed ac tion s to be such as to warrant th eir co ntinu ed fri end ship a nd supp ort.

a propos to cond itions at thi s school. In brief, he told of an alumnu s a t an eas tern sc hool who, on a ttending one of the big ga mes of th e seaso n, would a ri se after eac h successful pl ay and shout, " Hurray ! That's ju st th e pl ay I wou ld h ave ca lled were I th e quarterb ack," much to th e annoya nce of th e surroundin g spectato rs. After m a rchin g the length of th e fi eld , th e fell ow's tea m was held for downs on th e two-ya rd line. The exub erant a lumnu s rem ained sil ent, whereup on on e of the specta tors ca ll ed to him , "Where we re you on th a t pl ay!" T o w hi ch th e remote control qu a rterb ack countered, "H- -, I got th em dow n to the t wo-ya rd line, you' d think th eir quarterb ac k cou ld put them ove r." P erc summa ri zed hi s rem arks by saying th at he ha d neve r wo rked with a group of kee ner spirited men hav ing a grea ter desi re to win. "They'll scrap until th e whi stl e blows. I'm proud of th em." W. M. (B ill ) T aggart, '20, who was instrumental in bringing th e new coac hes down to M . S. M. next introduced Ga le Bullman, Coach of the Miner t ea m. Gale caught th e tempo of the crowd when he remarked that it was a ple as ure to work with some practical minded men after having been associat ed with psychologists and others of like training. He strongl y advocated a close r relationship between th e alumni and th e school in rega rd to a thletics, for it is onl y with strong alumni support and interes t th a t athletics can be m aintained on a high pl a ne at this school.

The nex t speaker was Mr. B. L. Ashdown, Presid ent of the St. Loui s Chapter of th e Alu mni Associa ti on, w ho pl edged hi s orga ni za tion a nd himself to do all in th eir powe r to be of se rv ice to th e sc hool a nd to Mr. Chedsey.

Benj amin G. (Ben) Nichol s, '1 9, introduced J. K. W alsh, '17, by saying that "some m en will work hard er for se ntiment th a n for money, others will trave l long ways for a n ideal. " For being a m a n who ha s followed both of these pa th s in furth erin g th e interes ts of th e School of Mines, it was hi s pri vil ege to prese nt to "J. K ." a life m emb ership in the M. S. M. A lumni Association. The text of th e awa rd was then rea d to the Association by th e Toas tm as ter, whereup on W alsh spoke to the asse mbl y, pl edgin g himse lf to th e continued th ought to forge t perso nal anim ositi es, and 1:0 a continued effort to reach a comm on goa l. With thi s pl edge, he accepted th e awa rd.

Fol lowing seve ral short speec hes by returnin g a lumni , th e toa stma ster introdu ced Mr. P ercy Gi ll , A ssista nt Coach of th e Min er footba ll squad. P erc's remarks we re co nfin ed to a few choice bits of hum or co nn ec ted wit h th e gridiron ga me, so me being ve ry

And that phrase may be hea rd at a ny time in the af tern oo n, a t midni ght or in th e wee hours of the morning, beca use th a t select group of radi o bugs does not believe in keep ing regul a r hours. Then, too, most shortwave fans , known to th e profession as " hams" rea li ze th at man y foreign ha ms a re on th e air in th e ea rl y hours of th e morning. And for th e dye d-in-th e-wool ham th e ca ll letters CQ, CQ, CQ, w hi ch mea ns that any ham li stenin g III IS invited to a nswe r, has a strange fas cination. Previou s to th e yea r 1934 th e School of M ines had no radi o stati on of a permanent nature. There had been short wave station s on the campus but the equ ipment was ow ned by th e students and when th e stud ent left he took the equipment with him. Thus the lack of a sta tion owned by the sc hool where the stud ents in E lec trical Engineering could gain a little knowledge of the intricate workings of receiving sets and transmitters.

In th e spring of '34 th e E. E. depa rtm en t purchase d th e necessa ry equipm ent for th e in stallati on of a modern a ma teur short wave station. Thi s equ ipm ent was inst alled in th a t summ er by Dougla s M a rtin, Jr. , E.E. '33, a nd has bee n perform ing successfull y since that t ime. M a rtin obtained hi s M.S . in '35 and is wo rking in Tul sa, Okla . Since th e da te of in stall ation th e sta tion has bee n opera ted und er th e ca ll lette rs, W 9D UM, W 9PCT, a nd W 9EEE . T he sta tion has co ntacted st ation s in all co ntin ents of the "vorld, working (CW) code, a nd ha s contacted ~ Il th e co ntin ents in th e wo rld , except Asia, wo rking phone. Contacts have bee n m ade with eve ry st a te in the United St ates. The ca lls W 9DUM and W 9 PCT were iss ued to students, but thi s was und esirable as th e ca lls would change from year to year. With such a condition existin g it was impossible for the station and M . S. M. to establish a repu ta tion. Thi s fall the sta tion was li censed to the M. S. M . Rad io Club under th e letters W9EEE. The Radio C lu b is an organization of M . S. M . stud ents who are interested in the devel opment of rad io, both ama teur and commercial. The officers are : J.

Engineers are wisely returning to the practice of recovering mineral values at their coarsest point of liberation, Good concentrating t ables are therefore winning more favor and wider applica tion daily , DiagonalDeck Deister-Overstrom Tables offer you the finest concentrating equipment mechanically and metallurgically. The improvements in this , eqUIpment enable operators to keep a breast of economic conditions a nd chang es. On the basis of this traditional performance and mechanical excellence, and following deliberate investigations of the most modern concentration practice and equipment, Cia. Minera de Oruro, Bolivia, South America, ordered in 1936, at one stroke of the pen, 80 Diagonal-Deck Deister-Overstrom Concentrating Tables for the new Vinto MilL This important producer, like others in Bolivia successfully engaged in the exacting recovery of tin, has for 23 years depended on Diagonal-Deck Deister-Overs,t rom Tables for the most efficient and profitable concentrating service. Since the first Diagonal-Deck Deister-Overstrom Tables were applied on tin recovery in the early part of this century, Bolivian tin mines have purchased 524 Diagonal Deck Tables, manufactured by THE ORIGINAL DEISTER CONCENTRATOR COMPANY to insure those extra advantages which analytical operators seek on the exacting metallurgical proMems.

By coopera ti on with other departments X ray, spectroscopic, petrographic, and polished section ana lysis can be and is being carried on, As stated before, the entire second floor of Norwood H all , conta ining the D epa rtm ent personnel offices, fi ve combin ation lec ture and laboratory rooms, and the mineral museum, is given ove r to th e Geology D epa rtm ent. H oused in space-saving fas hi on are collections of minerals, rocks, ores, fossils, and of maps that, in the D epa rtment's opinion , ri va l the best in a'ny other technical school tod ay. For each course there is specific example m a terial.
