President Middlebush Gives O bjectives

of expansion a l ready discussed and projected.

For Future Progress at School of Mines

But le t me offer here, as is my duty, a caution that the University is not seeking mere size as an end in itself in any division. We hope to achieve, in all ou r departments, an institut ion of highest quality that wi ll retain the worl d-wide respect and renown that the School of Mines and Metall urgy and other divisions of the University have so gloriousl y achieved in the past. Adequate faculty , facilit ies and equipment are absolute essentials for the high quality of work that we want to offer in every part of th e Univers ity of Missouri.

It is a p leasure to outline briefly the plans and program of d e velopment for the f u ture of the School of Mines and Metallurgy upon which we · have been working. There has been a rap id increase of enrollment in a ll colleges and universities during the past few years . At the School of Mines and Meta ll urgy , these years have brought an increase of t h ree times the prewar enrollment of the School, a very remarkable expans ion indeed. T he sudden increase in our enrollment has not been ac companied by an equa l expansion of spate and facilities to serve the large numbe r s in t h e way we sho ul d like. B ut we have found various mea:1S of stretching our present faci li ties and, by adding some temporary and some perman-ent quarters we have taken care of the peak load in fair l y satisfactory fas hi o n b u t on a temporary basis. We feel t hat we are j u stified in assuming that the School of Mines -and Metall urgy will continue to have a fair l y l arge e n ro ll ment. Present estimates are that its en rollment may drop to 1800 or thereabo u ts in the nea r f u ture but will increase considerabl y beyond that figure by the end of the

President's Column By Me r v in J . K e ll y, '14

The ALUMNUS is most fortunate in having Pres ident Middlebush of our Un iversity as its guest writer for this issue. President Middlebush is introducing a new series of guest w r iters for this col umn. He will be followed in later issues by Dean Wi lson and the heads of the departments of our School'. We now plan to have a guest writer for this col umn in at least half of our issues. In i nviting members of our School's administration and fa,c ulty to contri·bute , we are not restricting the subject matter for we are su r e that anything they wish to say will be of interest to the a l umni. 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111

be of permanent value in solving our residentia l and messing problem, though we s h a ll probably a lways need as much living space in Rolla as the town can supply. Our present construction program and pl ans for the near future provide for adeq u ate quarters for C h emical and Mechanical E ngineer ing in new buildings and also fo r Mining and Metallurgy in our remode l ing program to be carried out during this biennium. This p r ogram a lso provides for extensive repairs incl ud ing construction of steel, fireproof stairways in older structures notab ly Norwood and O ld Chemistry. P l an s call for earl y extension of the new Laboratory development to take care of Electrical Engineering and Mechanics and a lso, eventually , new faci l ities for Geol ogy and Physics. A new and enl arged l ibrary and an auditorium are also envisaged and wi ll ,be of great assistance to the program in Social Studies and Humanities. This b u ilding program is not a dream I::mt a determ ined p l an

We recognize the concern already finding expression that too many men are now be ing trained in engineering and technology and s ome of the other professions. I do not have th is view . Our major concern however sho uld be that our graduates have such excellent educa t ion that they will succeed where others may fail. We note that new avenues for placement are constantly opening i n many of the professional fie lds. B ut regardless of size, our Un iversity which became w e E'- known as a small institi u tion , must still p r oduce the best in quality no matter what its size may be in the future. This is our firm objective for the School of Mines and Meta ll urgy. Frederick A. Midd lebush, Pres ident, University of Mo .

Four Good Home Games on 1950 MSM Football Schedule The 1950 football schedule for MSM reveals four good home games scheduled for this fall. As defending champions of the MIAA, Coach Bullman 's Miners will have

a decided advantage in being able to play their three toughest opponents at home. For spring football practice , 18 of the ~3 letterm an from la st

year's team showed up for workouts . Seven le tter winners graduated and e ight have flunked out so far. Coach Bullman was aided this sprin g by P e rcy Gill, former Miner coach who has been on the coaching staff at North Carolina U. for several years. Gill is changing over to North Carolina State this coming season. Coach Ben Dougla s, who wa s the basketball coach and assistant football coach here at MSM the past year, is leaving to take a coaching job at Iowa University. H e will be h ead basketball coach and will assist in football there. Coach Bullman has not as yet selected a succes¡s or to replace Douglas, who equalled the Miners' best previous mark by winning two confe r e nce basketball games.

MSM Junior Sets New Record in Shotput

The New Jersey Turn Pikes (See Story on Page 6)

In the recent indoor MIAA track meet, Warren Roach, a junior at MSM, esta blished a new shotput record of 46' 6 1/2" . The previous indoor record h eld by Geo. Bock , also of MSM, was 46 ' 1" . Roach, in setting his indoor record, came within 1/2 inch of eq ualling the outdoor record for th e MIAA. Barring accidents , Roach will be the first Miner to hold an MIA A outdoor track record since Bob Lange turned the trick in the high jump a " few " years ago . Lange, incidentally, still lives here in "Rolla , a member of the Powell Lumber Comnan y.



St. Patrick Arrives Again, March 17, 1950

C OURT OF LOVE AND BEAUTY-This royal court of St. Patrick for 1950 was chosen to pay tr ibute to the patron saint of the engineer. Such beauty and grace as is found here is surely fitting to pay honor to such a gentleman .

at 1 :00 p. m. There was some criticism of the chariot in that it was a spanking new one from one of th e local farm implement cle al e rs and did not show the usual w ear a nd t e ar of the S1. Pat's chariots of past y ears. N e v e rth e l es's, he made his triumphal march up Pine Street a nd on to Parker Hall, followe d b y bands , floats and his cheering subj e cts .

H e r e , St. Pat was prese nte d with on e of th e main riddles of his visit, and that was how in th e tim e a llotted to him to ge t b efo r e him nine hundr e d se niors e lig ible for th e ir St. Pat' s shingle, to give th e m th e prope r inte rro gatio;l. a nd ge t through in time for the mas k e d b a ll startin g at 10:00 that
