Development of Physics Department at MSM Is Told by Dr. Harold Q. Fuller The science of physics like all sciences is dynamic . It is continuously changing as new facts are learned and new areas of research are opened. The early interests of physicists were to work toward an understanding of the physical phenomena of nature such as light, h eat, motion , sound, electricity, and magnetism. Today physics concerns itself with many other matters such as the nature of energy , structure of matter , nuclei of atoms, and the applications of physical principles to many allied fields of science and engineering. Physics is one of the basic physical sciences which is required of all engineers . From the developments of a basic physical principl e into practical applications have resulted the beginning of many fields of engineering. In looking over the old catalogues of MSM one finds that the Mechanical Engineerin 'S and the Electrical Engineering curricula were started in the Physics department and soon developed into their respective engineering d e partments and curricula. The last separation of a field of engineering from Physics at MSM occurred in 1924 when the Electrical Engineering Department was established. Since that time the Physics Department has developed its curriculm of basic and fundamental courses' in physics. From early in the twentieth century until science majors at MSM were in General Science. In 1930 a Science curriculum was set up with a major in anyone of several fields. Physics is one of these fields, so at the present time men wishing to study Physics as a major subject 2"raduate with a B.S. degree in Science-physics major. There were very few Physics majors at MSM until after World War II. Since that time there has been an increase in Physics majors graduating from MSM both at the bachelor and master's levels. The number of majors will never be large as the field is difficult. The demands of a physicist are both broad and exacting. He must have a good mind, a curiosity about the "why of things happening", and a creative imagination. He mus t also be able to formulate problems

in t erms of m a thematical symbols and to apply the logic of m a them a tics t o his formulation . The experimental physicist will nee d good eyes and muscular coordination to .:. ' -" -"~" - " -" -" _" _(I_('_(I_" _.:.

He received his A.M. ! and Ph.D. ciegrees from the Uni- i ! versity of Illinois in 1930 and i ! 1932 both with major in Physics. i ,He taught at the University of i i Illinois and for ten years was on t i the faculty of Albion cOllege'li Michigan, the last few ¡ years of_ -I which he was head of the De-I ,partment of Physics. He has i , served several summers as Visit-,

I ing' Professor of Physics at Penn , state College and the University, i of Michigan. He has also spent I I several summers, including this I t past summer, at Oak Ridge, Ten-I i nessee, as Senior Physicist. I He came to Missouri School of Mines as Professor of Physics in ~ September, 1947, a year before 'Dr. L. E. Woodman retired. Dr. Woodman had searched the country for a man qualified to t succeed him. All feel that he has found such a man in Dr. Fuller, who is not only an outstanding physicist, but a good teacher and an amiable colleague. ,

adjust a nd operate delicate appara tus . One interested in the field should b e acceptable to his fellowm e n as many physicists work in groups now. There is no upper limit to the tra ining , skill , and logical powers that can be absorbed by the profession. However, training in physics is gen erally recognized at three a cademic levels: bachelor, master, and doctorate . Training at the bachelor level should probably be sought by only those who rank in the upp er third of their college graduating class . Most of these will proba bly continue for advanced training. The majors of the MSM Physics de partment have been very successful in qbtaining positions. They have gone from MSM into industrial laboratories, government sponsore d r esearch agencies , teaching, r esearch foundations, and graduate schools. Some of our recent graduates will receive their Ph. D. degr ees this spring. A map showing the geographic location of recent graduates is placed in the East h all first floor of Norwood Hall. One observes that they are well sc attered throughout the United States and with one or two in foreign countries. A chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma, national Physics Honor Society , was installed at MSM in January , 1950. In order to be eU,gible for election to the society one must have at lease two courses in physics bey ond general physics, be in the upper third of his graduating class, and have at least 1.90 grade poin t average in phy sics . A graduate stude nt must have 2.00 grade point average to b e ele cted . The greater portion of the teaching load of the department is in the ge neral physics courses which are r equired for graduation from MSM in any curriculum. Each semester sev eral advanced undergraduate physics course s are taught and also a few graduate courses. Thes ~ courses are taken by students majoring in physics and advanced stud ents in engineering curricula who a r e taking some of their electives in phy sics. The sta ff of the Physics Departm ent is w ell qualified with respect to a cademic training , experience in industries and r e search . and teacning . The st aff and their graduate students have publishe d several re-

s.e arch papers in national journals during recent years. Dr. L. E. Woodman , Professor Emeritus, is the senior man of the staff. Dr. Woodman has been a~ MSM since 1919 and is well known to graduate since that time. Although he officially retired in 1948 he is still teaching Heat and Thermodynamics. Dr. Woodman received his academic training at Dartmouth College and Columbia University. Associate Professor William J. Jensen has been a member of the faculty at Missouri School of Mines since 1924. He received his A. B. degree from Carleton College and his A. M. degree from University of Illinois and has additional training there towards a Ph. D. degree. Dr. William H. Bessey came to us in February, 1952, as an Associate Professor. Dr. Bessey did hi s undergraduate work at Chicago University and his grad uate work at Carnegie Institute of Technology. Before coming to MSM he had taught at University of South Dakota, North Carolina State, and Carnegie Institute of Technology. Be a lso has had considerable experience in research. For his doctorate, Dr . Otto Stern, Nobel Prize winner, was his director. While at Carnegie he participated in research under ONR contracts. Dr. Louis H. Lund, Assistant Professor , came to MSM in the fall of 1948. He had his undergraduate work at Kansas Wesleyan College and graduate work at the University of Missouri. His previous teaching experience was at the University of Missouri and during World War II he was in a research laboratory supported by the U. S. Navy. This summer he is empl oyed in the Solid State Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Lund is the theoretical physicist of nie department. Mr. John M. Burger , Assistant Professor , is on leave of absence during 1951 -52 to continue his graduate work for a Ph. D. degree at the Univer sity of Kansas . Both Mr . Burger 's A. B . and A. M. degrees were receive d from the Unive rsity of Kansas. H e came to MSM in 1946. Mr. Burger had previously taught in "h i'gh schools, K emper Military Academy and Ce ntra l Missouri State College . Robert E. Houston , Jr. , who is an instructor in the de partment, cam e to u s in t h e fall of ]951 from

Michigan State College, where his B.S. and M.S. degrees were received. During World War II he was in the Air Corps and has had industrial experience at Ford Motor Company. This summer he is working at the United States Geological Survey in Rolla. Mr. Jesse T . Matthews also came to MSM in the fall of 1951. Mr. Matthews did his undergraduate work at T exas College of Arts and Industries and received his M.S. degree from University of Oklahoma. H e has taught at T exas College of T echnology. H e was in the Navy during World War II and h as had several years of experience in the oil fields of Texas. During his summers he is taking graduate work towards his Ph.D . degree at the University of Texas . Paul Kram, '48, and Mrs. Kram , are the parents of a son born May 19. The young man has been named Michael D avid. Paul is Engineer Inspector with the Missouri State Highway Department, J efferson City, Missouri. He gives his mailing address as 7313 D elmar , St. Louis , Mo.

Bob McC;aw, '27, Promoted by Radio Corporation R F. (Bob ) McCaw, '27 , has recently been promoted to Division Manager, in charge of Facilities Planning, with the Radio Corporation of America, Victor Division. Bob is located in the General Office at Camden, N. J. His position includes the development of new plants and facilities for manufacturing and engineering ; the most recent installation being a new engineering development center near Camden, N. J. Bob says he was delighted to read the recent article - in the MSM Alumnus - about Harry Kessler, because the two had met (purel y by accident) recently in New York City. (After a lapse of 28 years, it was quite a treat to meet another alumnus - especia lly at 42nd and L exington, in New York. ) Several recent MSM graduates are doing good jobs at RC.A. , and Bob reports that more engineers are needed to staff th e new facilities, now in the planning or construction stages, at RC.A.

To Be Completed Soon

MSM Buildings Undergo Many Changes to Provide New and More Space on Campus The campus of MSM is still unchange . During the past year Old Mechanical Hall has been completely remodeled and connected with the former Mining Building and the entire structure converted mto the Mining Engineering Building. This provides new office space for the Mining staff and several new class rooms, giving complete and adequate housing for the Mining Engineering Department. The upper floor of Old Mechanical Hall, which formerly housed class rooms of the Mechanical Engineering Department has been converted into drawing rooms and the Drawing Department moved from the top floor of Norwood Hall to the top floor of the new Mining Engineering Building. The Geology Department is occupying the space vacated by the Drawing Department. The Legislature at the last session approFlriated $100,000.00 for the completion of the new Chemical Engineering Building. This will allow the completion of the top tloor and the large lecture room on the first floor of the new buildd e r ~ o ing

the n ew Chemical Engineering Building, will be finished during the summer months .

Dean Wilson Elected to General Council of ASEE Dean Curtis L . Wilson of the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy in Rolla was elected to the General Council of the American Society of Engineering Education at the annual meeting of the Society held at Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, on June 20th to 28th. This Society consists of a group of educators and technologists throughout the United States and concerns itself with the promotion and development of engineering education in g e n era 1 throughout this country. The Dean will represent the Mineral Engineering Division. He was accompanied to New Hampshire by Mrs . Wilson and daughter, Virginia. Dean Wilson , at the same meeting, was appointed to a committee of 34 members of the Society. This

Committee on Adequacy and S tandards of Engineering Education is to study and evaluate the presentday education in engineering to see if it is adequate to prepare engineers for duty 25 y ears from now. With the ' rapidly changing technology of the country, some of the engineering educators feel that this is the most important committee' of this 'g eneration so far as engineering education is concerned . The Committee will be headed by Dean L. E . Grinter, graduate dean of the University of Florida. The study will extend over a period of three to five years. Dean Wilson has also recently been appointed to the Nominating Committee for the Engineers Council for Professional Development to name new officers and committee chairmen of that organization for the 1952-53 academic year. He was appointed to this committee by the Board of Directors of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers. Dr . J . D . Forrester , Head of the Mining Engineering Department at MSM, also attended the A.S.E.E. at Dartmouth and presented a paper on " Education in Geological Engineering ." He was accompanied by Mrs. Forrester.

Re p or ted b y Barn ey N u ell T he third annual picnic and outing of the Sou thern California Section was hel d at the Col orado Lagoon in L ong Beach on Saturday afternoon and evening , June 28. After a very enjoyable al fresco dinne r on the beach of the lagoon , the crowd of approximately 40 repaired to the recreation hall , where the chairman showed colored movies of his recent trip to Mexico City , Taxco , Havana , F lorida, New Orleans, and Rolla. The scenes of the campus were particularly interesting to some of the older graduates, who had never seen the new Chemistry Building , Harris Hall, or the new Mechanical Hall. Many old friends were p leased to see D ean Wilson, Noel Hubbard and Sam L l oyd in animated conversation in fr ont of Parker Hall , and also to see Prof. Butler , Prof. Carleton , and Prof H ershkowitz in front of Harris Hall . Following the showing of the pictures there was a brief usiness meeting, directed toward the building up a lumni membership in this area and formu lating p lans for the AIME meeting which is to be h el d in Los Angel es next February. At the conclusion of the meeting , a professional sq u are dance caller took over, and everyone had a fin e time in th is form of mild recreation. Those present were Pat Anderson, '51; A llan V. Doster, '26; Charles Ron Ferr y, '51 ; Jack F l eischli ; '43 , Bannon Ferrell ; William B. Fletcher , ' 34; T ed Gosen, '51; E. A .

M. U. Vice-President Tells路 Purpose of Education at MSM Summer Graduation B y Thomas A. Brady W ear e her e today to mark , appropriat ely , a special occasion in your life and in the history of our socie ty . No e v ent which contributes si'g nificantly to the spiritual and inte llectual growth of any individual ca n b e r egarded as unimportan t. It doe s not matter that those whom w e graduate today may number ten or a thousand. There may still b e those among you who may make us all glad that we have given you this shining opportunity . I am not h er e to tell you that any of you may some day be President of the United States - although I believe the statement is true . Nor is it m y purpose to exalt the glory of the commonplace. You are graduating into the world as it is and the society of which you are a part is the 6ne y ou see around you . M y purpose here is to remind you that not everything some people say about the world is true and to point out to y ou how its real nature bears upon the opportunities that lie before you . Told W orld Is Chaotic We a re frequ e ntly told that the world is chaotic, troubled, and insecure . Writer s who must discover dramatic situations and whose store of knowledge is much broader tha n it is deep, are constantly reminding us tha t man is more insecure than he ever was before and that h e is participating in a gigantic de ath struggle such as the world has never seen. There a r e many complications in life - that I would not d en y . But th e cri ses tha t men fac e have all be en fac ed b efor e d es pite the fact that the circumsta nces of history a r e n ev er repeat ed . When the ordin a r y m a n says tha t history r e p eats itself, h e is righ t. For , h e m eans b y this that m a n f a ces the ch oice s a nd mu st m ak e the decisions tha t m a n y men b efor e him h a v e f a ce d a nd m a d e. H e m e ans tha t t h e gr eat inse curity springs not from the n ecessity of facing d a n ge r bu t from a n unworthy compromise w ith evil. He m eans that while man k eeps his courage , his h on or , a nd his Christia n f aith,

neither death nor disaster is for him the final defeat. I would remind you that history holds forth no promise to any man that he may have life upon his own terms. Our Lord never promised us peace , prosperity , and security in this life. He gave us the 路 tools the abilities, opportunities, and transcendent spiritual graces by means of which we may justify our existence in this life and our salvation in the next. Victims of Historical Error You are frequently given a discouraging picture of the world today. Many men around you are disillusioned and say that war, tensions, high taxes, greed and dishonesty no longer allow a young man to make a great spiritual and material achievement. These people are the victims of historical error. This error which reached its greatest vogue in the nineteenth century ' was never more than a combination of 路glittering fallacies . One of these was the idea of progress - that man was pulling himself, ever onward and upward, by his own bootstraps. The Christian dogma that man was a creature who worked both good and evil was discarded. If man had no propensity toward evil, what was the need of salvation . The pearly gates were thrown away and replaced as an ideal by the cult of things - things to own - places to go - wealth to pile up. And all the time this world was riding heavily over the depressed millions of the earth people who had no progress , small enough wages, little food or medical care , few conveniences. This attitude brought most of the societies of the modern world to a dangerous and unhealthy condition - atheism and hyprocrisy at the top, despair at the bottom . But the most wicked thing was that people throughout all walks of life were taught to set a materia l value upon everything worthwhile . Once this attitude b ecame general it was a foregone conclusion that when once the dispossessed gained power , they would abuse it - for when the exercise of power h a s no high spiritual purpose , it is alwa y s

tyranny. We have given you here the finest education in science and technology that our age affords. You are ready and prepared to struggle for the mastery of material problems - to design things that will bring people closer together - to make things that people need. Let us ask ourselves why we have gone to such labor and expense to give y ou this education . Material things, in themselves, are neither good nor bad, but are capable of use for either purpose. I could never agree with a confirmed agrarian whom I met once, who argued that the motor car was evil. He proceeded to point out all its evil uses. But I could point to many 路good uses too. And so , you who are trained to build , are also trained to destroy - and the crux of the whole problem is found right here. Before you were engineers, you were human beings. You , like all other men , are endowed with divine souls and have a divine end and purpose . If this is not true, how will you be able to work for any end other than your own comfort and convenience ? Doesn't it make a difference to the engineer whether he designs plans for increasing the world's food supply or whether he designs gas chambers for Hitler? Greatest Danger Today I said you were also trained to destroy . Any you may be called upon by your government to do ' that as part of her military operations. Our people have not sought war and, please God, we never shall . When it comes, you and I can only use our skill with such effect that it will be as brief and as successful as possible . But the greatest danger we face today is not war . Man has seldom been fre e from the threat of war and many of his .great achievements have been made during such periods. The only d a nger we face is that y ou a nd I may not be true to what w e know is good and right. By giving y ou this education, we have multiplied a hundred-fold the power of a righteous arm. And there lies your tremendous responsibility . You have a weapon that all m en do not possess '-- and it is y ou who must see that it is used properly and for the right purposes .
