Prof. John P. Govier Appointed Chairman Of Department of Mining Engineering Professor John P. Govier is the new Chairman of the Department .of Mining Engineering. He joined the MSM faculty in 1957 as Professor of Petroleum Engineering with a background of twenty years experience working for major petroleum companies in North and South America. Professor Govier is a native of the oil country of Pennsylvania and received his degree in Petwleum Engineering from Pennsylvania State in 1.934. Though this is his first experience in the formal training of petroleum engineers he is from a family of educators. His grandfather was president of Pennsylvania State, his father was a professor of Electrical Engineering for forty years at Penn State, his father-in-law is head of the Department of Chemistry at Tulsa University and a brother-in-law has the Assistant Chairmanship in English Literature at the University of Rochester. Professor Govier's field is petroleum

reservoir engineering and with his occupational experience he has helped to gear the Petroleum Engineering courses to be supplemented, not duplicated or contradicted, by later protessional training. The Goviers have three children and reside at 648 Salem Avenue, Rolla. He is a member of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers , The American Society for Engineering Education, Sigma Gamma Epsilon, national honor society for the earth sciences " and Lambda Chi Alpha, social fraternity. Professor Govier reports there are 22 students currently enrolled in the Mining Department doing graduate work. This exceeds any other department at MSM . Professor Govier succeeds Dr. George M. Clark who¡ was selected to the position of Associate Director of the newly created Missouri School of Mines Research Labora tories .

Spring Enrollment Is 2960, Four Percent Increase Over last Year's Second Semester The enrollment at MSM for the spring semester is 2960 compared with the 1961 spring enrollment of 2852 . There are 745 freshmen ; 658 sophomores ; 822 juniors; 505 seniors ; 232 graduate students, and 28 unclassified. Electrical Engineers has the largest enrollment of 656 ; second is Mechanical Engineering with 608; Civil Engineering is next with 582; Chemical Engineering, 287; Metallurgical Engineering, 281; Physics , 167 ; Mining Engineering, 107 ; Ceramic Engineering, 77 ; Geology, 58 ; Chemistry, 57 ; Applied Mathematics, 49; Geological Engineering. 7; and Nuclear Engineering, 3. There are 28 coeds enro.JIed. This four percent increase in enrollment follows the pa ttern set by MSM's enrollment surge after World War II. The School of Mines is one of the very few schools that has had a yearly increase and reached an all time high of 33 15 last fall. The Engineering Manpower Commission of Engineers Joint Council , on the basis of a recently completed college survey] found that "The Nation February 1962

will have to make do with fewer engineering graduates for the next four to six years." The survey concluded that in the face of a general rise in college freshmen enrollments , engineering freshmen will fall back for the fourth year in succession. Starting from what many felt was already a rock bottom low for engineers , another two or three p ercent freshman decline is predicted. The overall engineering enrollment is down by 6.6% across the United States. The National Science Foundation estimates an a nnual demand for engineers between 1961 to 1970 will be 8 1,000 contrasted with our present 37 ,000 graduates. There is little doubt that the glamour sciences are drawing away some students who might otherwise have taken engineering, but it hardly seems p assible that this alone could account for the drop in the rela tive standing of engineering freshmen. The need is not to taI(e from science and give to engineering, but to increase engineering enrollments while maintaining science at its present level of growth.

E. E. Dept. Gets Research Grant From Boeing Co. The Electrical Engineering Depa rtment at MSM , is the recipient of a research grant from the Boeing Airplane Company, Wichita, Kansas . The grant, the third in a series of the amount of $5,543.60 is to be used between October 10, 1961 and May 31 ] 1962. A considerable amount of this grant money will be used to purchase operating time on the MSM computer. Without this computer facility at MSM, such research as covered under this grant could not be performed. The title of the research pwject is " Synthesis of Amplitude and Phase of the Current Along the Ferrotron-Loaded Spiral Antenna. " Professor G. G. Skitek, who has worked at Boeing the past two summers is directing the project. He is assisted by William Lodholz, a grad ua te student and Richard L. Smith and William Slocum, seniors in Electrical Engineering.

Dean Wilson on Missouri Scien'ce Adoisory Committee Dean Curtis L. Wilson has been appointed Chairman of a " Science Advisory Committee" recently appointed by Governor John M. Dalton. This committee is to aid scientific progress in Missouri and to promote the State's economy through science. Sixteen persons were chosen from state colleges and universities and from research staffs of industrial firms. Dr. D. S. Eppelsheimer, Professor of Metallurgy , MSM, was among the appointees.

Dr. Schlechten Edits Magazine Section Dr. A. W. Schlechten, Chai rman of the D epartment of Metallurgical Engineering has been app()inted Editor of the section on Extractive Metallurgy for the publication, "Chemical Abstracts." Published at Ohio State University, "Chemical Abstracts" is a compilation of current publica tions in the field of chemical , meta llurgical and ceramic industries . The section of Extractive Metallurgy which Dr. Schlechten will edit represents an expansion of the publication with thr.ee sections devoted to metallurgy instead of one in the past.


Sanitary Engineering Research laboratory to Be Set Up With Grants From U. S.; Three Graduate Students Get Traineeships The Department of Civil Engineering has received two grants from the u. S. Public Health Service, National Institute of Health, Education and Welfare. A Grant-in-Aid for health research faci lities construction in the amount of $7,3 00 was given to be matched by School funds to construct and equip a sanitary engineering research laboratory. The $ 14 ,600 will be used to convert an area in the Civil Engineering building near the present sanitary engineering laboratories into the research laboratory. T hese additional new facilities wi ll permit increased staff and graduate student participation in research activities in the fields of water resources engineering and environmental health. The new facilities are expected to be completed by September, 1962. All facilities are located on the second floor of the Civil Engineering bu ilding. This new laboratory will add 500 square feet to space to provide a tota.l area of 2,500 square feet of sanitary engineering laboratories for both instructiona.l and research activities. New equipment will consist of two peninsula laboratory assemblies complete with sinks, reagent shelves, desks, books and storage eases and necessary utilities ; fume hood ; two walk-in incubators (one for low temperature and one for high temperature); wall storage cabi net ; balance table; and air conditioning equipment. The second grant from this government agency is three traineeships for graduate students for advance study in sanitary engineering. According to Professor E. W. Carlton, Department Chairman , the traineeships are for a twelve month period and provide fees, tuition, and a stipend of $3 ,000.00 each plus a dependent allowance. The objectives of this program are to increase the number of trained public health personnel and to bring new people into the field of public health through new training opportunities. Trainees, at the completion of the year of study and research , are free to select any employment. The three grad uate students who received these awards a re Donald L. Evans '61 , Meredith H.

H. B. Smith Heads Air Arm Division, Westinghouse

Harold Griffith, Canada Steel Named for Fairless Award

Harry B . Srru th '42, has been appointed Engineering Manager of the Air Arm Division, Westinghouse-Baltimore Defense Divisions. Mr. Smith joined the Air Arm Division in 1952 . In 1953 , he was appoi n ted Supervisory Engineer and in 1956, he was elevated to manager, Radar Techniques. He held the position df Manager, Advanced Development Engineering since 1959. There are 1600 employees in the Air Arm Division, half of which a re professional , as engineers , physicists and mathematicans. Their work includes radar, digital computers, control and stabilization systems, optical systems (covering infrared and ultraviolet) and systems engi neering for space, missile and airborne applications . A major effort in their applied research is the socalled " molecular electron ics" which is interesting since it combines electronics with metallurgy, chemistry and solid state physics. Mr. Srruth relates that little did he reali ze that these specialties found together in only a few places like MSM, all some day would be part of a single industrial program. Harry now has his Master's degree from the University of Maryland and is studying for his Ph .D . at the same school.

Harold M . Griffith '27 , of Hamilton, Ontario, Vice President, Operations, The Steel Company of Canada, Ltd. , has been named by the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum E ngineers, to receive the Benjarrun F . Fairless Award.

MSM has recei ved a grant of $ 12 ,500 from the National Science Foundation for support of a program for Summer Science Training for high school students of superior academic ability. Professor Charles R. Remington , Jr. , of the Department of IVlechanica l Engi neering will be director of the program that will run from June 10 through J ul y 27. Dean Curtis L. Wi lson said the program is designed to introduce the hi gh school students to important phases of the various science and engi neering fiel ds, and to enco urage these studen ts to anal yse their own particul ar in terests and develop their potentialities toward further studies for professional careers. Pla ns are to select about 36 high school stude nts who are exhibiting high academic ability in their high school work and bring them to MSM for the 7-week program this summer. The school will seek the cooperation and advice of high school co unselors a nd other officials in selecting the candidates . T he cand idates , of course, must show strong interest in the p rogram. Candid ates for the training program will be selected fr om appli cants strictl y on the basis of ability and irrespecti ve of their financial stat us. However, the terms of the gra nt from the Science Foundation will permit the school to grant some financial assistance to promising students who need this assistance in order to attend. The purpose of the program is to bring academically talented students February 1962
