CHIEF BUEHLER DIES

THE YEAR OF JUBILO by ':'P AUL GREER

The arrival of a scientific and l'ational age req uires not on ly . a change of method, but new spirit a nd vision. The central fact of our times is that technologIcal development has outstripped our social system. The great manifestations of avia tion and electricity, the marriage of physIcs and chemIstry, are offering the promise of ab undance to a world in which there has never been enough light and warmth and food. Between this bountiful field a nd its harvest lies the myth of over-production. Yet abundance fin ally can be made a blessing instead of a menace, once our instinctive distrust of a better world has been dispelled. . . W e may depend upon it, things will not snap back l11to thelr old shapes at war's end. A conflict that in its beginmng seemed nothing more than a defense of the traditional way of life in the democracies has, in its later stages, become a p lanetary revolutlOn with the objective of security and economic advancement for all mankind. . The task of leadership from here on calls less for force and emotionalism than for a direct appeal to the reasonableness of man . If there is to come out of this war a wider life, the unfolding of the winas of the human spirit, this w ill not be by any physical overturr~ but by an internal stirring in the hearts and minds of the , people as individuals. N ature still is rich, but man by his own lack of forethought has disinherited himself. It is not that we are without some immensely wealthy families in America, but I like to toy with the idea that even the richest among them, controlling this or that natural resource or industry, may be considered poorer than any peasant of Russia, where each citiz,e n is co-owner of all the riches, developed or undeveloped, of his country. Such criticism as I would make of the system of our Russian . ally is that it is based on a producer interest rather than a consumer right. T o possess great resources, and to be equipped with technical skill, are of small benefit until out of them come goods for our more adeq uate living. This recognition of the consumer is a basic postulate of a more reasoned world. The bottleneck of distribution will hamper our best efforts a t production under present conditions, for it now costs more to move goods into the hands of the consumer than to produce them. In 60 years from 1870, while the population of the United States trebled, the volume of production of goods increased ninefold. While only three and one-half times as many workers were able to multiply production nine times, those employed in distribution increased almost ninefold. A s consumers we have paid every cost, industrial and commercial, in our economic system. The problem of living, once per sonal a nd physical, now calls for group economic p lanning. It was an able engineer , Sidney A. R eeve, who wrote in that amaz,ing book, " Modern Economic T endencies": " Man has never passed through a hideous social crisis which could not have been foreseen and prevented by a conservative, but courageous and timely, reliance upon wisdom which had been basic for centuries before. The irritating causes lie in fixed institutions, which remain unchanged while the needs of the times alter. It is neither the snobbish indifference at the top nor the ignorant bitterness at the bottom which causes crises, but intellectual timidity '1>

NUMBER 1

Dr. H. A. Buehler , for 36 yea rs State G eologist of Missouri and active in every phase of Missouri's ¡mineral industr y and many other phases of governmental and industrial activities in the state, died at his hotel room in Jefferson City on M arch 14 of a heart attack. Dr. Buehler had gone to Jefferson City to at tend a meeting ot the Missouri State High way C ommission of which he was an ex-offi cio member. H e h ad c0l11plained of not feeling well fOf some time, but h ad decided to make the trip to Jefferson City to attend the meeting. H e had h ad dinner w ith Carl Brown , Chief Highway Engineer , and left Mr. and Mrs. Brow n at the hotel about 10 p.m. About 3 a. m. he called his p er H. sonal friend , Dr.L. D avid Enloe, but died soon after Dr. Enloe arri ved. Chief h as been a familiar figure on the campus of the School of Mines and M etallurgy for 43 years, first coming w ith the Missouri G eological Survey in 190 1. In 1908 he was appointed State G eo- 'logist. In addition he h as held numerous other appointments -Co various boards and commissions that has brought him into a more intimat e touch with Missouri life than p erhaps any other person and he has left the imprint of his personality upon more phases of Missouri history than perhaps any other individual. H e was particularly beloved by students and alumni of the School of Mines. M any of these Alumni and students here have worked for the Chief, frequently when there wasn 't a great deal for them to do, but the Chief found them a job because they needed work. The Chief h as lent money to many of the Alumni to allow them to finish their education . In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the mineral resources of Missouri, the School of Mines and M etallurgy, 11l 192 5', conferred upon Dr. Buehler the honorary degree of D octor of Science. Dr. Buehler's funeral was held in the auditorium in Parker H all at 2 :30 p. m. on March 16. Gov . Forrest C. Donnell delivered the principal eulogy, and related the Chief's many accomplish ments during his long term of service to Missouri and paid high tribute to the Chief as a man as well as a p ublic ser vant. Following the Governor's add ress, R. C . Allen , vice-president of the Oglebay, Norton Mining Company, Cleveland , Ohio, a lifelong friend of Dr. Buehler who knew him even in high school days, delivered a short eulogy paying high tribute to the Chief - or " Aj ax" as he was known in high school days- as a friend and an outstanding scientist. The stage and the orchestra pit of Parker H all were banked wi th floral tributes from friends from all over Missouri and many from outside of the state. D elegations from the Missouri H ouse :tnd the Missouri Senate, now in session, attended the f uneral and these bodies adop ted resolutions of sympathy.

DEAN WILSON SPEAKS TO ALUMNI AT HOUSTON BY O. K. HOLMAN ' 37

Dean Wi lso n arri ved a t 11:4 0 a. m. Tuesday, Febm ary 15. H e was met at the trai n bv K . F. H asselm ann who took him by his home and then to a luncheon at the Ramada Club, w hi ch started a t 12 :30,and the foll ow in g we r e p resent: D ean Curtis L. Wilson. K . F. H asselmann '25. W. A. SchaefferJr. '2 4. Joseph M. W il80n '2 1. K. F. HASSELMANN O . K. Holman '3 7. ]. V. Spalding '3S . 1. W. Alcorn '22. During the luncheon, an inform al discussion regarding the policy, conditions existing, p rogram, and aims of the School took place. Dean Wilson and Mr. Hasselm ann spent the balance of the after noon at Rice Institute as guests of Dr. Lovett, president of the Institute. The Alumni dinner party began at 6 :00 p .m. in R oom D of the H ouston Club and the following were present: Dean Curtis L. Wilson. Allen L. Lewis '42. M . Albertson' 11. H . E. M inor' 1O. I. W . Alcorn '22. L. D . Olafson '43. Niles K. Brill '42. W. H. R eber ' I S. W . A. Enderson '40. C has. A. Schaeffer '42. Osher Goldsmith '20. W . A. Schaeffer Jr. '24 . K. F . H asselmann '25. Fred P. Shayes ' 17. Edward L. Hilderbrand '43. J. v. Spaldin g ' 3S . Joseph M . Wilson '2 1. O. K'. H olman '37 . After di nner, Mr. I. W . Alcorn presided as acting chairman and O. K. H olman as acting secretary of the meeting. Mr. Alcorn read a list of replies from Alumni who were unable to attend the meeting and those present were p leased to note that the Alumni who could not attend were ver y anxious to form an active Alumni chapter. Dean Wilson began his talk with a general discussion of Alumni sections in N ew York, C hicago, St. Louis, and Tulsa, and outlined very briefly their accomp lishments. Dean Wilson then discussed his job. Those present were impressed by the fac t that he likes his job and is establishing himselfas a competent and vigorous leader of the School. H e wen t on to discuss the rece nt changes in the town of Rolla and described the rapid growth d ue to its close proxi mity to Fort Leonard W ood. H e then took up the various training programs for the armed for ces in which the School has taken pa rt. H e emphasi4ed particu larl y the School's need for buildings. The plans which are being laid out at pre en t are necessaril y dependent on the duration of the war. H owever, Dean Wil son f.,:els that a definite construction program can be initiated as soon as buil ding materials are available. Dean W ilson then outli ned the educational viewpoint that the School is now fos tering for un dergr aduate ed ucation . T he School

is stressing the fact that engineers will be in a major part employees of companies and corporations after they graduate. These six basic poin ts are stressed in the handling of students: (1) they must be loyal to their employers, (2) they must be honest, (3) they should develop as full y as possible the ability to get along with others, (4) they should avoid mediocrity and be a better than average student, ( 5) they should develop character, and (6) the School is trying to get over to the students the idea of self-education. Dean Wilson then we nt into a discussion of the faculty. H e. gave the details of the various changes which have been made in the past few yea rs and stressed the fact that there is now complete harmony within' the fac ulty. H e stated that the Board of Curators has gone on record and adopted the policy of doing everything possible to hold the present faculty together in the event the School's enrollment should dro p dangerously low during the remaining years of the war ; and , in the event enrollment should reach a dangerously low level, plans have been laid for improvements and research which wi ll be very beneficial to the School when enrollment increases in the postwar era. Dean Wilson next discussed the position of the School in the State, its relationship with the University at C olumbia and the Board of Curators. The Alumni present were gratified to hear that many past difficulties have been eliminated and that the School is receiving full cooperation fron1 the University and the Board of Curators. The State Legislature has been friendly and the situation regarding the State appropriations, which are necessa ry fo r the operation of the School, has definitely improved. M oney in the amount of $1,250,000 which is available to a school in the State of Missouri for the establishment of an institute of technology was then discussed by D ean Wilson. This fund has been set up by the Sever Estate and is to be used for the crea路路 tion of a technological institution for undergraduate education. H e outlined the proposal made to the Sever Estate trustees which was a plan to establish at the School of Mines the Sever M emorial Institute which would incorporate mechanical and electrical engineering. This Institute would not be separate and apart 路from the School of Mines but would be an integrated unit within the School. In closing this p art of the discussion, Dean Wilson stated that the School's chances of getting the funds from this Estate are excellent but no decision has been reached by the trustees of the Estate at this time. Dean Wilson then brought the discussion to the organi 4ation of an active Alumni group and went into some detail regarding the work of other sections of the country. At the conclusion of Dean Wilson's talk, the meeting was thrown open to a general discussion of what was desired in the way of an Alumni organi4ation. Those present form ed an Alumni chapter and the following offi cers were elected for a period of one year : K. F. H asselmann, chairman ; W . A . Schaeffer Jr. , vice-chairman ; M . Albertson, vice-chairman ; C . A. Schaeffer Jr. , secretary; and]. V. Spalding, treasurer. After a long discussion, those p resent adopted a re olutiol1 that the newly fo rmed Alumni chap ter of Mi souri School of Mines advocates the fo rm ation of a central national organi4ation to be supported by va rious groups of Alumni throughout the countr y. T o facilitate the operation of the central organi 4ation, this grou p desires that a paid Secretary be emp loyed to handle the necessar y administrative details. The Alumni who attended the meeting we nt away fee ling that something tangible had been accomplished. M any questions and rum ors were satisfa ctor ily answered and they fe lt that the leader ship of the School is now competent and progressive and it was also fe lt that the starting and developing of an acti ve Alum ni group in this part of the coun try would materially benefit the Schoo!.

and inertia everywhere." U p to now, such changes or reforms as have arisen have come less from the fact that they were reasonable than from a sense of outrage or insult that set emotions abla:;e. The costs of this war to America, like the costs of the long depression that preceded it, are to be measured onl y in the con sumable goods that were not produced. This is why it is fundamentally so important to make sure of full production upon the outbreak of peace. W e must immediately begin to manufacture all those consumer p roducts, from clothing to chemicals and electrical supplies, that have been almost irreplaceable for the duration of the can flict . Where we have the raw materials, the technique and the willing hands, every thing is possible. It is by these things that men live, not by bookkeeping. If indeed we ca n bring our social and economic practices in line with the reality of our technical abilities, America need not suffer another period of unemployment, depression or lack of the best things of life.

KENNETH SHOW ALTER '42, W ANTS REUNION AFTER WAR

Dear Mr. Katz: It~ly, March 7, 1944. The " Winter '43" copy of the MSM Alumnus has just recently reached me after quite a series of " forwardings." I enjoyed read ing it so much that I thought that I should write and tell you what a fine job I think the association is doing in getting the news out to us w ho have strayed so far from home. I found the " Alumnus" just packed with items of interest but the pa rt I appreciated most was the inform ation on Alumni Per sonnels. There's just nothing like those bits of news on what one's " buddies" are doing all over the world. I was happy to find the address of some of my " lost friends" and will now be able to gain contact with them once again. In the p ast few months I have received two issues of the " Miner N ews Letter " w hich has been sent out to Miners in the service. I dor't know who is responsible for the publication of these letters but it is surely a fine piece of work. They help to span the gap between issues of the Alumnus and help keep us informed on what's going on back in R olla. Our Battalion h as been over here fo r several months and have been kept on the run all of the time. It has been said that this is an Engineer 's W ar and our experiences have certainly proven that to be the truth. O f course, the In fantry soldier is the most im porta n ~ man and always will be but the Engineer isn 't fa r behind him in importance. The artillery, armored fo rces, and air force all depend upon the engineers for roads, bridges, clearing mines, constructing air fields, etc. There just seems to be no end to the amount of work to be done. H owever , our work is usually interesting and has suffi cient variety so as not to become tiresome. The morale is high among our men- they can actually see the results of their work, and therefore they don 't mind the long hours and adverse working

From time to time, since I've been in the army I've met " Miners" and discussed with them the possibili ties of a big " M iner " reunion afte r the war.

Capt. Edward Fiss '36, was one of the offi cers who led the assault on Kwajalein in t.he M arshall group in the American forces attack on this highly important Japanese base. H e was also one of the group who helped to take Attu under control for the Ameri : cans, a little less than a year ago. H e is a member of Tau Beta PI and Phi Kappa Phi and graduated from MSM with second honors. He is also a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha social fraternity. After leaving Rolla Ed went to Georgia School of T echnology and took a Master 's degree in Chemical Engineering. H e was employed by the Duke Power Co. of Charlotte, N.C . at the timc he entered the ervice.

A new X-ray machine has been presented to the Missouri School of Min es and M etallurgy by the W estinghouse Electric M anufacturing C o. and was installed in the laboratories of the Electrical Engineering Department on January 24 by F. C . Schneeberger, MSM '25, who is in charge of the X -ray department of the W estinghouse organization. Prof. F . H. Frame, head of the Electrica l Engineering department,stated that the new equip ment would be used to demonstrate the fund amentals of the ap pli cation of X-ray, both for medica l and industri al work, and is a mu ch needed addition to the School of Mines laborator y equipment in electrical engineerina. X -ray, according to Prof. Fram :::, now ha a wide industrial application. During the present emergency all vital parts used in airplanes are X-rayed for fl aws before they are assemhled. X -ra y also has application in welding operations of pres ure vessel of all types and is used extensively in shipbuilding and in analyzing the welds for possible faults. After the present war emergency, X-ray will have even wider app lication to industrial purposes and will be used in the examination of metals, plasti cs and other industrial items, and also in testing food products of all types where foreign objects are likely to create a liability.

Marine 1st Lt. Paul Fullop ex '4\ an aviator in the Pacific theatre and former ly outstanding athlete at MSM, has been doing his share in the war against Japan. Fullop , a member of Lambd,l C hi A lpha fraternity, was one of the most outstanding football players in recent years here at MSM. H e was M.I .A.A . A lI -C onference in 1941. Fullop was recommended for the Distinguished Flying Cross and his gunner for the Silver Star after a foray in which a Jap transport was sunk. The graphic story, related by Fullop himself, begins when he "stumbled on a Jap transport with a 2000- lb. bomb. " H e came in just off the water , let go, and had to pu ll up sharpl y to miss the deck. The transport suffered a direct hit amidships; and , as Fullop puts it, " jumped clean out of the water, broke in half, and sa nk almost immediately. " Caught in the resulting explosion, which blew the cockpit of Fu llop's p lane full of water and damaged it severely, Fu llop was " limping" out when he was spotted by Zeros. Certain that "this is it, " F ullop piloted the damaged plane while the gunner fended off the attacking Zeros. Safe at the home base Fullop jumped out to pay tribute to his splendid gunner only to find him slumped over his guns. Unknown to Fu llop the explosion had broken the gunner 's leg in three places. All the while in intense pain, the gunner had turned in one of the best examp les of aerial gunnery in the war to save his plane. Ful lop 's tribute : " It's kids like that gunner that make us better men than those little, slit-eyed sons of T ojo wi ll ever be." Capt. Armin Tucker '40 has been awarded an air medal for meritorious service. M rs. T ucker received the citation from the War D epartment M onda y. It read: " By direction of the President of the United States an air medal is awarded to the following named offi cer for meritorious achievement whi le participating in anti-subm arine patrol fight.

The Chief, he was known to yo u in Missouri and in many other communities throughout the country and the world . I hope you will appreciate how difficult it is for me to speak to you across the body of my friend, a friend of my youth, of my middle age, and of my mature years. In the few words which} shall say to you I shall try to bring to you those thoughts which I think that D r. Buehler would like for me to touch upon. T o me he is rlot the Chief, he is not Dr. Buehler or the eminent scientist, great geologist, a member of learned societies. H e was to me as he is to you folks here in R olla, a friend. H e and I went to the University from the same community. I don 't remember when I came to know Dr. Buehler but it was in my late 'teens. I well remeniber that when I came up to the University of Wisconsin to take the entrance examination he, as a Senior, was there to meet me and I spent my first night at the University at M adison in his bed, with him. T o me in those years and to his friends of college days and high school days, his name was Ajax and during all these thirty-five years or more in which he and I have been in steady correspondence he has invariably signed his letters to me " Ajax," which leads me to think how discerning our young people, the associates of high school days were, in recogniz.ing the greatness in the boy that then was, that they called him Ajax, that figure of Greek mythology. Aj ax, the strong man who fo ught with other heroes in the battle of Troy. In my home on Thursday evening after I had learned of the passing of Ajax, I talked until late to the night with another lifelong friend , Dr. William O. H otchkiss, formerly State G eologist of Wisconsin and now the retired President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I said to him , "H otch, w hat is the thought that comes to you when gaging the loss of this mutual friend ? What' shall I say to his friends at R olla? What thoughts shall I take to them ?" W e discussed together wh at to say at the passing of this· beautiful and useful life which now ends. What he leaves to us is something more than originates in learning and in wisdom and in endeavor and those things which we think of generally as accom p lishments- something more than that, and I want to read to you now the few lines of a p oem written by Leigh Hunt. I am sure a good many of you w ho went to school in our generation are familiar with this poem. It is the one which in the opinion of Dr. H otchkiss and my daughter , Jean, best represents that precious thing which is at the best, I think, of your appreciation and my appreciation of this beloved brother and associate and friend. In my school reading books of 4 5 years ago was a poem called " Abou Ben A dhem. " The other night I said to my daughter Jean, " C an you place your hands on that poem, do you know where it is? Do you know who wrote it and where it appears?" She said, " Daddy, I don 't know where I can lay my hands on that p oem, but I know it, I will type it for yo u. " I want to read it to you as she typed it for me. Perhaps your memory may correct any mistakes. ABOU BEN ADHEM ABOU BEN ADHEM (may his tribe increase !) A woke one night from a deep dream of peace, And saw, within the moonlight in his room, M aking it rich, and like a lily in bloom, An angel writing in a book of gold :-Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold , And to the Presence in the room he said, " What writest thou ?"- The vision raised its head , And with a look made of all sweet accorJ, Answered, " The n ames of those who love the Lord." " A nd is mine one?" said Abou. " N ay, not so," Replied the Angel. A bou spoke more low, But cheerly still ; and said, " I pr ay thee, then, W rite me as one that loves his fe llow-men." The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night It came again with a great wakening light, A nd showed the names whom love of God had blessed, A nd 10 I Ben Adhem's name led all the rest.

Missouri has lost a great public servant. After more than forty years' public service, death has called Chief Buehler. Few men have left so fine a record of unselfish public service as that left by Missouri's great Chief G eologist. Year in and year out he has been concerned with the discovery and development of the natural resources of this State. Every industry tapping those resources owes a debt of gratitude to Chief Buehler. H e knew the mineral resources of the Sta te~l ea d , z.inc, iron, bauxite, and every other mineral reserve has claimed the benefit of his extensive knowledge. The development of the great clay resources fo und their original inspiration in his work. The development of the water power was under his supervision and largely at his suggestion. The stone and marble industry continuously acknowledged benefits of his assistance. So extensive was his knowledge, and so disinterested his contributions, that from the very inception he has participated in an ex-officio capacity in the road development and the road program. Few people have known his politi cs--no one cared . The impOt'tant thing was that here was a great disinterested p ubli c ser vant w ho devoted his life to the development of the natural resources of the State in order that mankind might be benefited . It is said that no man is indispensable. This may be true, but it wi!! require many days to find a man of the stature and capacity and unselfish devotion to succeed to the work of H. A. Buehler , as State G eologist for Missouri . The C onstitutional Conve ntion p auses in its labors to pay tribute to this great and unselfish public servant. R. E. MARRS, Secretary.

ALUMNUS '

ST. LOUIS SJCTION MEETS Through the efforts of Bernard]. Gross '~3 and F. C. Schneeberger '25, the St. Louis Section of the Alul'l11i Asscciation met at the H otel De Soto on the evening of M arch 18. It was a dinner meeting with Benny G ross p residing. After the dinner , Benny called upon Deai1 Wilson to give the principal address of the evening. The Dean told of his visits to other sections of the Alumni A ssociation at Tulsa, N ew York, Chicago, and H ouston. All of these, he said , had been functioning well. H e paid high tribute to the Alumni with w hom his visits h ad brought him into contact and said these men were successful in their own work and that they were enj oying the respect and esteem of others in the engineering profession. The D ean stated that the reputation of MSM depends not on the Faculty, not upon build ing or equipment, but upon the Alumni of the school. Faculties change, equipment and buildings go out of date, but the Alumni go on and on . Dean Wilson sp oke of the enrollment during the past year as reaching a total of 1083, the largest in history, then stated that with the war situation as it is, there would probably be in the fu ture a period of low enrollment for the duration of the war. The Dean rep orted that through the Will of the late William ]. Rucker , the school h ad recently received a bequest of $20,000, which he stated, h ad been invested in government bonds until such a time as there could be set up some sort of activity at MSM fin anced by this money that would be an appropriate memorial to Mr. Rucker and to carryon the name of Mr. Rucker to coming generations as a result of this bequest. H e also told of an Alumnae in C alifornia whose name was not known to him who, through his attorney, is making arrangement to leave a $10,000 bequest for scholarship purposes to MSM through a provision in his Will. The Dean also rep orted briefl y on the status of the Edwin R. Siever estate and praised the Chicago Alumni group for the splen did work they have done in promoting the interest of MSM in connection with the Siever matter. Following Dean Wilson's talk, Benny Gross stated that he h ad received letters from the Houston section suggesting the desirability of an organization with a p aid secretary. H e asked Fred Schneeberger , who had recentl y been to T exas, to report to the meeting on this matter. Fred stressed the need for an organization that fun ctioned throu ghout the country. H e spoke highly of the enthusiasm of the H ouston organization and that the plan submitted by the H ouston group for an organization wi ll provide closer cooper ation among the various chapters. H e stressed the need for a national full -time paid Alumni secretary w ho wo uld look after Alumni matters, put out an Alumni magazine each quarter in which would be written articles by the Alumni and the Faculty relating to their fields. H e estim ated that there were 2700 living Alumni and sta.ted that many of these would be willing to spend $10 .00 a year and h ave a good organization rather than the present $5 .00 dues with not so active an or ganization. H e also brought from the H ouston section a suggestion that the Alumni offi ce be in St. Louis r ather than in R olla, saying that the w hole country looks to the St. Louis section for leadership. Benn y G ross then asked fo r a discussion of Schneeberger 's report . Karl Kaveler '30, spoke of the Alumni A ssociation ,It Missouri University as a possible model for an organi zation at M SM , and suggested that p art of the salary and expenses of the M SM organization be borne by the School of Mines as is done at Colum bia. ]. K. W alsh ' 17, stated that if the secretar y's salary was dep endent entirely upon funds from the Alumni A ssociation, the organization wo uld be short lived , and endorsed Kaveler 's idea that a part of the expense should be paid by the school. Mi ckey Brazill '20, stated that the A ssociation has made good starts bu t d ue to the fact that the chap ters are u nder cer tai n leaderships fo r onl y a yea r or two and then changed to less enthusiastic leadership , the organization dies down. After f urther discussion it was decided to present the matter

" R?LOPPY" BREUER TO QUIT YANKS M ar vin Breuer ' 35 for the past four seasons one of the out5 ~a i 1di n g pitchers for the Yankees, has now said he will not play baseball during the 1944 season, but will stay at his job at the Eastern Aircraft of G eneral M otors where he is employed in building Avenger torpedo bombers for the United States N avy, being stationed at their Linden plant. " Floppy, " w ho is employed as a junior stress analyst at the Linden plant h as been playing in organized baseball for 10 years, and for the past four years with the Yanks.

WINTER COMMENCEMENT

50 YEARS AN ALUMNUS

A total of eighty degrees were granted at the winter com' mencement held on January 25 with two prominent St. Louisans as the principal speakers. Among them were three Professional degrees : Pinckney R onald M abrey '27, Durward Rice Schooler '26, and Erwin Charles Hoeman '30, M.S.' 35 . R abbi Ferdinand M . Isserman of T emple Israel in St. Louis, delivered the baccalaureate address. R abbi Isserman is interna' tionally known in the field of religion and has traveled widely both before the war and during the present conflict. At the commence' ment exercises on January 25 , Paul Greer, Editor of the complete edition of the St. Louis Post, Dispatch, delivered the commence' ment address. An abstract of this address is on page one of this edition.The degrees were conferred by Dr. Frederick A. Middle, bush, President of the University.

The letter below came to H oward M . Kat?" secretary and treasurer of the A ssociation, from W. S. Thomas '94, of 32 15 N.E. 42nd avenue, Portland 13, Oregon, Feb. 25, 1944. " I am enclosing my check' N o. 56 for $5 .00 in yo ur favor to apply on my dues for this 1944 year. Coming June I will have been 50 years since my graduation at the School of Mines in 1894. " Before we separated we met and agreed to keep in touch with each other. W e little knew what that meant in practice, because to keep such a promise was almost impossible. Times were worse than bad. W e all h ad to take what we could get, and that was almost nothing much of the time, we were not able to get a prospect. W e got scattered, and except for m yself, had no steady position until the end of 1895 w hen out of ,l blue sky I got a telegram to come to M ontana at once. Along about late August, Prof. Seamon wrote offering me the position of A ssistant to him at $300 .00 a year. I taught elementary chemistry, determinative mineralogy, qualita' tive analysis, and often qu antitative and technical assaying. I closed my books, graded the students, and put aside :lll of the apparatus for the year before I left the school late in May. The other men had a hard time of it, so had not any incentive to write, and 1 was too busy and did not know w here to find my classmates. I heard from Theo. S. DeLay from C olorado. H e wanted to know of a 'good test to apply to a coal to see if it h ad coking qualities. I replied at once and he replied that had found that the reactions were just as I h ad outlined. I have not heard from him directly since, but have been told he has done well and is in Clinton, Iowa. " I met Claude Devlin Grove, a very happy man, on his. honey' moon in Salt Lake City in 1899. H e was doing very well at that time. H ad just erected the largest and most up ,to,date Chlorina' tion mill in collabor ation with Lord Kelvin, the noted British scholar and scientist of that time. The process was obsolete in a short time after the mill was built due to C yanide process. I have not seen G eorge W . H erdman at any time since June, 1894. For a long time he was missing, but the school has found him ; I under, stand he is in Omaha, N ebraska. Frank Lee T yrrell 's present place of residence is not known to me, and Miss Lola Morris his wife. T emple D yer , died in R olla and I understand that C. 'D. Grov~ 1S gone. " M y classmates of 1894 were : C. D. Grove, deceased ; Theo. S. Delay, 515 W. Mills street, Creston, Iowa; G eorge W . H erdman, deceased ; T emple D yer , decea~ed ; Lola M orris T yrrell, deceased ; F. L. TY~,rell , Salem, M o.; W. S. Thomas, 32 15 N.E. 42, Portland, Oregon.

APPRECIA TION OF ]ACKLING LOAN FUND Dr. D. C . Jackling '92 has transmitted to Dean Wilson a Christmas greeting received by Dr. Jackling from Lt. Edward Kromka, quoted below : " I am one of the many men yo ur loan fund helped to realize the gaining of an engineering degree from Rolla. At present I am fl ying a twin engine bomber, the B,2 5, in the M arine Air C orps. After the war, I plan to return to a mining engineering career. I feel a happy security when I realize I do have a work to which I may return and begin a normal career. In a sense, your loan also made possible my gaining of the Air C orps. I sincerely wish to thank you for your kindness which has made possible my present happy circumstance and w hich has given me a confidence and technical ability to begin my work in the future. I am very grate' ful to you and hope som.e day to pass along your help to another person. " Lt. Kromka was graduated from MSM in M ay, 1942, majoring in Mining Engineering and at once enlisted in the M arine C orps, Aviation Branch. H e was one of the outstanding athletes who h as been on the MSM campus for many years. H e was captain of the football team and also was elected by the A ssociated Press as one of the All , American Third T eam of the smaller colleges for 1941 ,42. Dr. Jackling in transmitting the letter to Dean Wilson ex' pressed himself as pleased with the appreciation shown by Lt. Kromka, saying that " Such evidence of appreciation is somewhat

r are nowadays, and understandably so in view of th~ predominant disposition on the part of communistic influences seeking to instill the philosophy that privileges have become rights to be construed as matters of course- in other words that the most one can acquire by hook or crook and in return give the least constitutes a legiti ' mate p attern fo r human associations and activities."
