HOMECOMING

J AMES K. RICHARDSON '32"

The annual H omecoming was held on November 14, and canisted of a well-planned progr am beginning with registration and a visit about the campu by returned alumni, starting at ten o'clock in the morning. At 2: 15 the visiting alumni attended the football game between the Miners and the Cape Girardeau T eachers College, a game played by two well matched teams resulting in a score of 7 to 6 in favor of the T eachers College. At 6: 15, the annu al H omecoming banquet was held in the College Inn of H otel Edwin Long, with Dwight M oodie, '24, chairman of the St. Louis section, acting as toastmaster. Dwight called upon M . H . Thornberry, ' 12, who introduced Stillman Elfred, ' 17, President of the W estern Cartridge Com pany, Alton, Illinoi , who spoke in behalf of the Class of 1917 and their 25 th anniversar y reunion . "Stilly" complimented the class of ' 17 on the response to hi invitation , although only six of them were able to be present at the reunion. "Stilly" stated that he was appointing Thornberry as honorary secretary of the class. Toastmaster M oodie then presented Mr. A . D. T errell, '98, of the National Zinc Company, Bartlesville, Oklahoma, who spoke briefly about his 44 years of active association with the alumni. Howard M . Katz, ' 13 , Secretary-Treasurer of the A ssociation, made a brief report, stating that dues had been received from 132 alw11l1i in response to a letter recently sent out by President Stifel. H e further reported that the A ssociation is in a sound finallciai condition, and asked the cooperation of the alumni in keeping up addresses and in getting out the Alumni magaz,ine. Coach Gale Bullman was next introdu ced and spoke briefly on the athletic program at the school. Then T oastmaster Moodie presented Carl Stifel ' 16, national president. President Stifel spoke of the constructive program for the School of Mines and expressed the opinion that the University authorities are one hundred per cent behind a constructive program of doing something for the school here at Rolla. H e read the following telegram from President Middlebush: "Regret exceedingly my inability to be with you at Homecoming. W ould appreciate it if you wo uld convey to alumni and friends greetings and appreciation of their constructive aid. I am convinced we are making gen uine and steady progress." President Stifel then read the following letter from Mr. Tom K. Smith, chairman of the executive committee for the School of

The armed forces, in conjunction with various govern mental agencie , are placing a greater demand upon scientifica lly trained personnel than at any other time in our Nation's history. Young engineers are facing this N ation's enemies bravely and are provIng their mettle on each of our far flung battle fronts . Industry, too, is placing greater and greater demands upon their technical staffs. Industry is calling, crying and begging for more and more technica lly trained men. Ever y engineer is being constantly beset by attractive offers from industry. N ever in my life time has their existed such a market for trained men. Some of the older men present may have knowledge of other equally critical periods, but certainly in the 10 years since my leaving this school , I have never been faced with so many attractive opportunities. " Breathes there a man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said , This is my own, my native land?" The problem that faces American youth is a common problem - a problem common to all of America. No individual solution or plan is worthwhile-everything is empty and meaningless- unless we win this WM! These are trying times ! I think I know, toda y, some of the thoughts which must have run through Lincoln's mind as he pell' ned his immortal " Gettysburg Address." I believe, however, that the crisis facing America today is greater than any which ever confronted this great land before. M y expressions, at this time, may be a " voice in the wilderness, crying to be heard, " - but I si11' cerely believe that I voice for American youth many of the thoughts which run through all of our minds. T hese expressions of mine are not entirely original. I have talked with literally hundreds of young engineers, doctors, l awy~rs, politicians and soldiers and there seems to be a unanimity of opinion in regard to the thoughts I shall try to express. W e feel that we must be guided by the experience and advice of our elders, but those same elders must realize, sooner or later, that our voice, in deciding our destinies, must be heard. I am convinced that youth will be heard when the peace is won. The voice will be loud and insistent, for you th wi ll hereafter , demand a place in the "council.

Young America Looks at War

ST. LOUIS SECTION A.I.M .E. MEET IN ROLLA

( Co nt in ued fr o m Pag e 1)

The St. Louis section of the American Institute of Mining and M etallurgical Engineers held its meeting on the School of Mines and M etallurgy C ampus on the afternoon and evening of N ovember 7. Professor H. R. H anley ser ved as chairman of the Local Committee on arrangements. The progr am consisted of registration and a tour of the Campus begin ning at 1 :4 5 p .m. and continuing until 2 : 30 p .Ul. At 2 : 30 p .m. the technical session started with an address of welcome by Dr. Curtis L. Wilson, Dean of the School of Mines, fo llowed by a talk on T. A. H endricks, of the United States Geological Survey . H e told of the exploration and development of low-gr ade manganese ores in Arkansas. Dr. Richard J Anderson, ac ting state geologist of Arkansas, spoke on the bauxite deposits in that state, after which E. D. Gardner, regional director of the U. S. Bureau of Mines with headqu arters in R olla, told of the Bureau's work in the development of strategic minerals for war purposes. James K. Richardson, MSM '32, secretary of the Tri-State ZincLead Producers A ssociation , &poke on the subject, " Young Amer .r" , ica Looks at W ar. " The banquet of the Section was held at 7 :00 p .lll. at the Pell' nant T avern with W. E. M cC ourt, A ssistant Chancellor of W ashington U niversity acting as T oastmas ter. Professor Isaac Lipin" cott of Washington University was the principal speaker. The ladies of the Section were entertained at a luncheon at the Colonial Village at noon, followed by a business meeting at the home of Mrs. G . A. Muilenburg in the afternoon. They joined the men for the banquet in the evening at the Pennant. Other members of the Local Committee consisted of R. Z . Williams and S. A. Trengove, registration ; G. A. Muilenburg and J B. Butler, program ; J W . Dunn, transportation ; and D. F. W alsh and O . R. Grawe, banquet.

T herc has been accep ted in behalf of the you th of America; a war ; an unprecented national debt ; mounting social obligations; cla.ss consciousness; a violen t spirit of adversity between management and labor, and worst of all- a defeatist attitude. Thank God that those things aren't the onl y things we have. W e have a heritage of freedom and a heritage of native land . These offset all those insignificant mistakes of past generations. W e wer e born, each of us, a free people. People who can still t hink, speak and worship as we please withou t fear of a Gestapo. W e have inherited a land of industrial ,1l1d agricultural greatness - a land which has never before been p ut to the test, consequentl y no one knows its f ull poten tialities. A land, our native land , which is bigger , much bigger, than the persona l bickerings and hypocrisies of any individmL W e may still choose our leaders in a democratic way - and we may dispose of them in the same way if they are fo und wanting. W e l1<lve a land where labor can rightf ull y insist upon its share of the " fruits of their endeavor. " W e may yet come and go as we please without regimentation - depending entirely upon the voluntar y decision of the individuaL Those things are ours at p resent- I pray that we value them suffi cien tl y highly - and are thus willed to fight and die that our children may also have heritage of a free and good earth. I full well realiz.e the indecision which faces each young engineer in this schooL H e is torn between two desires-desire to serve himself and desire to serve his countr y. N o one can decide for you where you can best serve your nati ve land . Every young American must ask himself, " Will my effort contribute to winning the war ?" No tr ue A merican should enter pseudo-war work with the thought in mind that it will improve morale. Frankly, gentlemen, we either love our country above all else or we don't - if our fathers have failed to p ut into our souls a love of coun try by this time then we may reasonably expect to hear again the worn p hrase- " too little, too late." The decision is yours. R ealiz.e in arriving at this decision, however , that we must win this war on the production line as well as on the fighting front. D on't say to yourself that there is onl y one field- the arm y l Remember that the production line is eqmlly important ; that the soldier must have z.inc, lead, copper , manganese and that wide variety of strategic metals of which our armaments are constr ucted. When the average A merican thinks of "w,lr industry" he thinks of the manufa cturer producing planes, tanks, rifles, ,unm unition and other items in fabr icated form. Sight is lost of the fact that mining is the basic industry where the steel for tanks and rifles m ust originate; the origin point fo r alum.inum for our planes ; the copper for our shell casings and ignition systems; the molybdenum, t ungsten, nickel, vanadium and other rare metals for strengthening our steels. Not just from large mines, but from the thousands upon thousands of small mines, must this production come. Consequently, the young engineer must be realistic and act as a part of a team and see to it that those raw materials are available for the fabricator. You can serve your coun try on either fro nt- the production or the fighting line- and serve with honor and distinction. A s a prod uction man, yo u may never be other than an unknown hero, but the opportunity is there to be one of ,l team which wi ll make our land the H ero Nation. The term "arsenal of democracy" was not, I ,lm sure, ligh tl y pronounced by our President. I ,Ull sure that he full well reali z.ed the responsibilities th'lt such an undertaki ng presented. T oday, our most vital sources of ti n, rubber , manganese, tung oil , and hosts of others have been shut off, or the imports amoun t to onl y a " trickle." W e are fighting nations who have suddenly become rich with abunda nt raw materia ls, bu t always remember that those same nations improvised and did so effectively until now there is no need of substitution. W e can and must do the same thing. Nylon for sil k; plastics for steels ; syn thetics for gum r ubber ; old men for yo ung men of combat age - all Jl1USt be utiliz.ed. There is no time

for alibi3 or statements th'lt " it can't be done" or that it is ineffi cient¡or impossible. W e can and must do these things ! W e have depended on the other fellow to think things out- now, we must think fo r ourselves and develop new processes if we are to remain a free people. The Ameri can school system is on trial I Already American medica l schools have been rebuked by the Army for an ineffi cient training of doctors in tropical medicines. Perhaps engineering schools w ill next be criticiz.ed for not encouraging enough individual enterprise and freedom of thought - some institutions have foisted off an tique, second r ate ideas on yo ung, first rate engineers. These second rate ideas were the product of laz.y minds not abreast of the changing times. Students of engineering schools are prone to consider the stud y of E nglish and economics, fo r example, nonessentials. What engineering idea was ever good that couldn't be p ut down on paper so that the layman could understand it? What engineering idea ever developed whose economic aspects hadn 't been thoroughl y evo lved ? The major tragedy of this wa r is not the fac t that the " fl ower of American manhood " will be perhaps killed or maimed. That is one fact that we can all overlook as a temporary impediment to ollr civili zation. T he race will propagate itself I The real tragedy is the fact th at none of us will be able to present to our sons and daughters, the rich mineral resources and reserves which wer prese nt when we were born. W ar uses these reserves of metals rapidly and surely with vir tual complete elimin ation. Little of the material abandoned on the battle fields will benefit a peaceful man kind. Littl e of the material lost at sea will ever be recovered. N ature spent millions of years preparing that heritage for us and man is recklessly sqmnderi ng that which is irreplaceable along with human li fe. O ur reser ves of minerals, oi ls, gases and power are steadil y dwindling. The high grade deposits of metals will be virtu ally exhausted shou ld we remain at war through any considerable period. N o longer are there reserves of high grade hematite or z.inc ores, in any large quan tity, availabl e to the American

.... President Vice ·President GUNN ARD E. JOH NSON , ' 16 . .. ...... .. . . VI:ce·President H OWARDM. K ATZ, ' 13 .. ... ........ Secretary·'TreasuTeT people. Beneficiation and mining problems of extremely low grade ores are being given constant study. No longer can we flush into the atmosphere, millions of cubic feet of natural gas. N o longer can we drill oil wells in an unrestricted and indiscriminate man· ner. Conservation- minute conservation- is finall y coming into its own, but our infinitesimal effort cannot offset the ravages of war. Will our late efforts to conserve cause history to write again - " too little, too late?" These conditions revea l to the engineer of imagination the vast fronti ers of this new world-this world after the wa r. The utilization of oil shales; development of new fuels; beneficiation and mining of low grade ores; substitution of plastics ; synthetic rub· bers and myriads of other possibilities are presented as problems w hich must -and shall be solved . C ertainly these are paths which have only lightl y been trodden upon by our fathers-what glorious possibilities of adventure presented the engineer with a creative mind. Let not America rest under the assumption that young Amer· ica on the fighting front is totally in the dark as to conditions which faced the soldier of World War I on his return to his home· land . America's returning fighting men will expect and demand work - mind you, I do not say "demand" lightly- everyone here realizes the implications. Already in our camps, and on our fight· ing fronts, post war problems are being discussed. Let no one mistake the fact that American women are in industry to stay. Woo men have proven themselves full capable of doing skilled work comparable to any performed by men. Women engineers have gone into distant lands and have proven their ability and worth. Following this war, we must exercise our creative genius to utilize this vast reservoir of industrial workers. This vast reservoir which has only been lightly drawn upon in the past. Creative and productive jobs must be ready for the maimed and handicappedthey are proving their worth as replacement man-power in indus· try today. Human ability, energy and initiative must be used and nourished, and not wasted as we have done in the past . I pray that never again wi ll our system of distributi0l1 be so poor that we shall allow this ability and resource of ours to stagnate with the dole until the characteristics of individuality and resourcefulness are gone.

W . B. Crutcher, '24, prominent oil executive of Semi nole, Oklahoma, died in the Tulsa hospital on N ovember 29 at the age of forty·seven years. His body was returned to R olla for burial. Funeral services were held at the Episcopal Church in Rolla Dec. 2 with burial in Rolla cemetery. Crutcher came to the School of Mines and M etallurgy from M arshall, Missouri in 1916 and was graduated in civil engineering in 1924. After .exp erien ce in his profession in O ld M exico and in Florid a, he entered the oil industry and was advanced rapidl y to the position of division engineer with the Carter Oil Company, which position he held at the time of his death. Mr. Crutcher is survived by his wife, the former Hazel Dent of Roll a, Missouri , and one son, T ommy ; also, by one brother and two sisters.

" If there is one message I want yo u to carry back with you , it is that you can never do enough to repay what the School of Mines has done for you," President Stifel said. H e urged the cooperation of the alumni in spreading favorable publicity concerning the school, and also asked their cooperation in presenting to the incoming Legislators information that would be of value to them in better understanding the value of the school to the state and to tbe nation. President Stifel spoke of the great importance of technical education and the part it wo uld play in the post·war world. H e stated that the School of Mines and M etallurgy is as good an insti · tution today as it was w hen the various alumni were here and he urged them to cooperate with the University authorities in build· ing even a better institution. President Stifel then introduced Dean Curtis L. Wilson, w ho gave a report of progress duri ng the past year. Dean Wilson stated that the Board of Curators had requested ,l ten per cent increase in the appropriation for the coming year , and had also asked for reappropriation of funds for construction for the Power Plant and for finishing the Chemical Engineering building. Both of these were ap propriated for last year, but the appropriation for the Chemical Engineering building was vetoed by the Governor because of lac k o f funds; and the Power Plant could not be constructed on account of inability to secure boilers in these critical war times. Dean Wilson also spoke of the efforts being made by R olla citizens and alumni to interest the Administrators of the H enry Edwin Sever estate in the School of Mines and M etallurgy. The

Scvcr cstate consists of a million and a quarter dollars, which was left by the will of H enry Edwin Sever for the establishment of a school of technology in Missouri. Dean Wilson paid a warm tribute to the citi;;ens of Rolla and to alumni, particularly the Chicago section of the alumni, under leadership of Gunnard Johnson, in promoting the intcrest of the School of Mines in connection with the Sever Estate. Dean Wilson also told of the establishment of the Regional Office of the Burea u of Mines here, and how the citi ~ens of Rolla have within a few days raised a total of $8,000.00 for the purchase of a site for the proposed new building to house the R egional Offi ces of the Bureau of Mines here. H c also spokc at somc length on a proposed camp us plan which is bcing worked up by a finn of architects in St. Louis. Dca n Wilson urged the A ssociation to keep up its organi;;ation and its work. H e stclted that he had visited the sections in St. Louis, Tulsa, Chicago, and in N ew York City, and was going to visit within the next few weeks the Joplin scction. H e stilted that these sections all have the best in terests of the School of Mines genuinely at heart. T oastmaster M oodie then read telegrams from ]. L. H ead, '16, Chile Exploration Company, N ew York City ; Gunnard Johnson,

' 16, Hammond, Indiana; James R. (Oley) N evin, ' 17, Wilmington, Illinois, expressing regret at their inability to be at the H omecoming and extending greetings with best wishes to the alumni. Chairman Moodie closed the meeting by urging all the alumni to work to promote the best interests of the schoo!. H e also expressed the hope that the younger alumni wo uld take more interest in the Alumni A ssociation and playa more active part in the org ani~ation in the years to come.
