Receive 50-Year Medals

Two members of the class of '02-John Louis Pickles and Samuel Marshall Greenidge-receIving their 50-year medals from Dean Curtis L. Wilson. At left of the picture is General Leif J. Sverdrup and extreme right is J. A. Daggs, memb er of the executive committee of the Board of Curators. is the development of our chemical industry . Synthetics are coming more and more to the fore front; re~ earc h and development are continua lly adding new products. As an example of th is, during the depre ~ sion of the 30's the Dupont Company, while cutting th eir budget on all other items , did not cut the budget for r esearch and development. It is rather interestin g to note that today 85 percent of the products manufactured and sold by the Dupont Compan y were not in ex istence at that time . " That brings up the point that one of the great tasks that engineers and scientists have in this country in the future is r esearch. Up until World War II the basic r esearc h o f this country was, frankly, not impressi ve compared with that of certain countries in E ur op e . W e were ma sters of adaptation manufacturing and mass pro d uc tion, but a gr ea t change along this line, and it must continue and ¡grow . The important of long and te dious basic research and original t hinking cannot be overemphasized , a nd I certainly hope that some of you will continue with your stu di es because as tim e goes on an ever-lar ger percentage of our e n gi n eerin g graduates must continue to work for th eir Master's and Doctor's degrees, if WE' are to k ee p up with a nd forge

ahead of the rest of the world. This is particularly important if we intend to stay ahead in the race we now are ' in the middle of. "As engineers we must also remember our ¡gr eat r esponsibility as citizens. It h as become so popular to demand rights , security and privileges that v ery little thought has been given responsibility. Surely ,

they must go hand in hand , and the e n gineer must never forget this , nor his duties as a citizen. It must be r em embered that the engineer's ta sks also includes a great many thin gs not t ech nical. It includes hi s responsibility as a member of his community, his state, and his nation. " During World War II in the Pacific the contributions of the engineer were gr eat. His sweat, blood , and toil built the bases from Australia to Tokyo an d when that great soldier, G en era l Douglas MacArthur sa id, " This is an engineer's war ," h e paid them a tremendous compliment. By that he did not m ea n that the infan tr y , the artillery, the air and the navy were not needed nor important. h e meant that it was one war which could not have b een won w ithout en gi neers who had to build one base after another as the battle surged forward to its victorious conclusion. And so I say that our civilization cannot be maintained nor even go forward without th e e ngin eer. It would rapidly and certainly grind to a shocking halt. " At the close of the address D ea n Curtis L. Wilson presented G ener a l Sverdrup to President Frederick A. Mid cJ l ebush , of the Univer s ity of Misso uri , for the awarding of th e degree of Do ctor of Engineerin g (Honoris Causa ). Have you attended your local section meetings?

MSM Alumni Association Aids in Birth Rate Survey

According to the survey made by the Population Reference Bureau of Washington, D. C., this year, the birth rate is steadily increasing for college graduates. The Missouri School of Mines participated in this survey. The study was made from the classes of 1942 and 1927. A survey of over 16,000 college alumni from colleges all over the United States who 'graduated in ' 1942 show a new trend in college fertility. This group may be the first in the recent history of American colleges to produce enough children to replace themselves. In the ten years since leaving college the 1942 graduates have almost equalled the reproduction record found for the class of 1927, 25 years after graduation. MSM graduates averaged 1.85 children per parent who reported in the class of '42, but fell short of many oi the other colleges as MSM only averaged 1.57 children per married 'graduate who reported. This is not too discouraging however in contrast with the above mentioned fact that we have almost equaled the figure for 1927 which was 2.10 children per graduate who reported and 1.69 per married graduate who reported. The MSM Alumni Association will participate in this survey again next year.
