The demolition of Jackling Gymnasium will cause changes in the phys ical education and sports program at UMR . Physical ed ucation , intram ural and varsity s ports headquarter s will move into a temporary building now being constructed over the o ld tennis courts on State Street back of the Mining Building. The building will house athletic offices, eq uipment storage s pace and shower and dressing rooms for home and visiting football teaIT1S . Required for all freshmen in the past , physical education classes will b e discontinued this fall. Both men 's and wOlTlen 's phys ical ed ucation courses will be taught for credit in the n ew fieldhouse in 1967. IntraITlUral sports, which now invo lve 1500 "Miners " representing 2 8 organizations playing 15 different yea rround events, will b e continued with so me schedule changes. According to Professor Gale Bull -

man, physical education department chairman, swimming, handball and equipITlent loans will have to be discontinued for two years. Still on sched ule, however , are intramural softball , horses hoes , cross cow1try, rille, flag football , tennis, golf, track and bowl Lng. Negotiations are under way for [;lCilities for intramural basketba ll , vo lleyball , wrestling and table tennis. Varsity s ports were boosted this year with so me add itiona l grants-in-a i d . Home basketball games will be played on the Rolla High School courts seating 2,000 (1,100 more than Jackling Gym) . The home football opener will b e September 25, when the Miners play Pittsburg, Kansas State College onJackling Field . Next season 's team will play for a possible 4,000 fans in the stadium. Intercollegiate basketball practice and official contests will b e held at the Rolla

High School gym for th e next two years. Varsity cross country, track, golf, tennis, rifle and baseball willbethesame as always ... and better, as baseball joins conference play and track moves to new facilities for 1966. Swimming is the only varsity sport that will be eliminated, as the Jackling pool becomes the basement of the new library. Aquatic spo rts w ill resume in 1967 in the " Natator ium " in the new field hous e. The safety of the old gym has b een of great concern to school officials for some time , and the decision of the state architect that it had outlived its useful purpose was helpful in gaining the appropriation this year for badly needed modern athletic facilities. The athletic staff of Pl'ofessor Bullman, Allgood, Van Nostrand, K ey, Glazier and Findley will maintain an active program on the Rolla campus during the transition period.

Jackling Gymnasium will be the first building to fall in the execution of the "Master Plan" of development for UMR. When the demolition crews demolish this familiar sports site it will be also the beginning of a new era in athletics at our school. This is the first building to be razed in recent years to prepare a site for a new building. The new library to be constructed on the old gymnasium site will be the beginning of four new buildings to be built during the 1966-67 academic year. The modem, 4-story library designed by Murphy and Mackey, St. Louis architects, will b e a modular building which means the easy-to-br ouse-through stacks will b e its only interior walls. There will be 75,000 squa re feet of floor space, as compared to the 8,000 square feet now in use in the Parker Hall library. Instead of the present student capacity of 130 , more than 800 "Miners" can study in the new build ing. In addition to single, double and 8-man tables in the reading rooms, s pecial areas will b e fumished with August 1965

lounge furniture for r ecreational reading . The library will be fully air-conditioned and books can be checked o ut over marble-topped circulati on desks at a security-improved central exit. Twenty-five private study rooms will be available to faculty and graduate students. For discussions that requir e us e of reference books, seminar rooms will be availab le. The windows in the $2'-+-million building are especially designed to keep out the sun at all times. A buff brick building with a dignified look, the library will b e built this fall with $1' 2million funded by the Missouri legisI ature and $ 750,000 from the federal g overnmen t. Another part of phas e one of the development program will be an annex to the Physic s Building. Before the second semester gets under way, the east-west hall of the present Physics Building will be extended to Pine Street. The $500,000 annex, designed by P. John Hoener & Ass ociates, St. Louis, will hous e four research lab oratories, office and equipment s pace. Appropri-

ations for the physics additions were authorized by the nnd General Assemb ly of Missouri. Beyond Jackling Field , in what is now the R .O.T.C. dril l field , aMaterials Research Center Building w ill be started next spring and completed for us e by 1957 . The three-story Center, a part of the University System Space Sciences Research Center, will be the first of several research buildings to make up the planned research quadrangle . Space laboratories , graduate student and staff offices will be provided for continuation of work on the more than 20 projects now under way at the temporary Materials Research Center in downtown Rolla. D esig ned by Froese, Maack& Becker , architects of St. Louis, the Center was funded by a U.S. Office of Education grant of $342,000 and $750,000 from the state General Assembly. Research, phys ics and library buildings will b e only the beginning. Money has already been appropriated for an addition to th e Mechanical Engineering Building which, according to plans to 3

be drawn by Sverdrup & Parcel and Associates, St. Louis, will extend the present facility north to the Mining Building. The $900,000 addition was provided by Missouri's 73rd General Assembly, which was adjourned this summer . After Jackling Gymnasium is razed, construction will soon start on a $ 2million auditorium-fieldhouse west of the area occupied by the former 18hole golf course which was trimmed to 9-holes for the athletic program. The new gymnasium will include a "natatorium" for aquatic meets and swimming classes, basket ball courses, physical fitness and work -out rooms, offices and equipment rooms. Theauditorium will seat 5,000 for athletic contests and more than 6 ,000 for staged events. Architects for this structure are Marshall and Brown of Kans as City. Missouri. And this is 0 n I y the beginning. "Miners" this year will witness the first steps in a University of Missouri at Rolla development program that will eventually reach all areas of academic life on the campus.

"Nooter Sooter" Had Origin on Campus The Nooter Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri, in cooperation with officials of UMR has designed a highpowered shock tube for the mechanical engineering department. The device, 27 feet of carbon and stainless steel, has been appropriately nicknamed "N ooter B ooter. " Built by Nooter Corporation, fabl"icators of steel and alloy, and assembled by a University graduate student, the shocktube has "booting " capabilities above Mach 10. ti:lliam A. Crede, Westphalia, a mechanical engineering student, built instrumentation and auxiliary equipment which put the "Nooter Booter" into operation for graduate research. The tube was initially designed by Crede and L.G. Rhea, assistant professor of mechanical engineering. Nooter Corporation prepared the final design, which provides a primary driving power of 10, 000 pounds per square inch. A facility for generating shock waves s uch as sonic booms, will be used at 4

UMR for research areas of chemistry, physics and engineering. Professor Rhea explains, for example, that transonic flight tests can be simulated by putting airplane models inside t he shock tube and testing resistance to air pressures. Eventually an apparatus will be installed to photograph experiments as they are performed inside the tube. The "Nooter Booter" weighs approximately 4,800 pounds and it is put together with bolts 2 1/ 4 inches in diameter. It is the largest in the state of Missouri.

M. U. President Nears Retirement Dr. Elmer Ellis, President of the Univer sity of Missouri, under whose administration the University of Missouri has grown to a four-campus system, will reach a mandatory retirement age of 65 in August, 1966. The Board of Curators has launched a nation-wide search for his successor. A screening committee has invited nominations from the faculty, alumni, and friends of the university. Robert Neill, president of the Board of CuratOl"S, is chairman of the committee. Serving on the committee are two other curators, William H. Billings of Kennett, and Oliver B. Ferguson of Fredericktown; a former curator, James F. Finch, Jr., of the Missouri Supreme Court, has been appointed to represent alumni, and Professor Unklesby , Chairman of the Department of Geology, Columbia, represents the faculty on the screening committee.

Kansas City Section The Kansas City Section had a "get together" in the form of a picnic on July 24 at the Mill Creek Park in Independence, Missouri. The wives furnished a covered dish and the main meat dish was barbequed beef. The alumni, their wives andchildrenenjoyed this outing. Dr. Baker, Ike Edwards, General Ray Cochran and their wives from the Rolla campus were guests of the Section. Among those present were James

Stephens '47, Ray Kasten '43, Joe Adams '43, John Averill '59, AI Rouse '59, Ken Kyle '41, Henry Ponzer '60, Gale Fulgham '47, Bob Rickey '56 and Mike Tarr '52. The officers of the Kansas City Section are Bob Rickey, PreSident, Gale Fulgham, Vice President and MikeTarr, Secretary-Treasurer.

Charles B. Finley Joins Athletic Staff Charles B. Finley has joined the football coaching staff at UMR. Finley, a native of Lockwood, Missouri, graduated from the Lockwood HighSchool and received his B.S. degree from Southwest Missouri State College, Springfield , in 1960. He coached football at the Sarcoxie (Mo.) High School for three years and at Lebanon (Mo. ) High School for two years prior to his appointment at UMR. Chuck is married. He and his wife , Dixie, have two children, Gretchen, age 5, and Angela, 1 year old. They live at 8 Pecan Grove, Rolla. This addition to the coaching staff was greatly needed to develop the unusually large football squad at our school.

Dr. C. A. Hochwalt Summer Commencenlent Speaker "As a graduate of UMR you will be more than a scientist or an engineer , but an entrepreneur of technology, a risk-taker on the perimeter of scientific achievement," Dr. Carroll A. Hochwalt told 142 graduates at the Summer Commencement at UMR. President and director of the St. Louis Research Council, Dr. Hochwalt talked on "Technology and the Entrepreneur. " A former Monsanto Company vice-president, h e is also president and di.rector of the St. Louis Regional In d ustrial Development Corporation. Dr. Hochwalt defined his terms and their importance, " ... science and technology, the proved hypothesis and its practical application by invention or inn ovation are mutually dependent. While the present era has yielded important

breaks in basic research, it has been far more productive of advances in technology in the applied sciences." The speaker stressed applications of technology in the modern world in economics and politics. In reference to current military crises, Hochwalt spoke of "the unprecedented modern-day shift by all major world powers from man power to brain power as the source of military posture." "In fact, the brain power tends to serve as a neutralizer of numerical manpower differences in ~ kind of bombversus-bomb stalemate, since it is quite impractical to determine, who has the better bomb." Dr. Hochwalt concluded by pointing out to graduates, "you are being

graduated from an excellent school with high standards which you've succeeded in meeting." "You've learned how to learn, and that will be the mainstay of your professional life - for what you've learned is not worth much ... knowledge is being obsoleted at· an estimated rate of 15 per cent per year. "In other words, if you fail to keep up with the literature in your field , you can count on having to start learning it over again seven years or so from today. " UMR, in the Summer Commencement, granted 80 bachelor of science degrees, 41 master of science degrees , 15 master of science for teachers and six doctor of philosophy degrees.

A 1925 college dropout who never lost his am bition to get his d egree made it at commencement exercises at the University of Missouri at Rolla at the s ummel' commencement. A bachelor 's deg ree in metallurgical engineering was granted to 60-yearold Har old W. Seifert, wh o set a record for tilTle elapsed between start ing and finis hing college. Seifert, who entered the former University of Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy in 1922 after gr ad u at i 11 g from J oplin High Sch ool, returned to Rolla last September for his final year. Semi-retired s ince 1958, Seifert has already had a s uccessful career in the field of metall urgical engineering. After he left college in 1 925, he went to Mexico where he has s pent most of his boyhoo d , and h e has lived th ere most of the intervening years . Seifert started his career in the brass fo und ry of La Consolid ada, S .A., Mexico City , a steel company, working up to general s uperintendent of nine plants before he left the C01Tlpany almost 20 yea rs later. At one time, La Consolidada was the second larg est steel COlTlpany in Mexico and pioneered several plants, putti.ng in the firs t chr o me, cadAugust 1965

The University of Missouri increases incidental fees on all four camp uses . Dr. Elm er Ellis, Pr esident of the Univers ity of Missouri an n o unced the increase is needed to help defray the increas ing operational costs. The incidental fee for Miss our i st udents will b e $140 for a s emester , an incr ease of $25 over the $ 11 5charged last year. Missouri stud ents do not pay tuition at the University. Out-ofstate students enrolling in the Univers ity w ill pay an increase of $ 37 .50 , or a total of $ 3 2 7.50 a semester.

' Ro ug h! " s ay s Seifert, "but I wouldn't have mis s ed it for the wo rld! "

Would he enco urage other s to foll ow his examp le? "Definitely " is Seifert 's em ph a t ic opinion. Most o lder people are afraid of going back to sch ool, as he was before h e fin ally took the ste p. ' 'T o even understand what is going on in the world today, people of my gen eration m u s t continue their ed ucation , either th r o ug h further sch ooling or reading," says Seifert, who d oes not believe in an inactive retil¡ement.

A graduate of Washington University , Hafeli was head coach in football and basketball at Kenyon College befor e joining the U.M.R. facutly where he became coach in football and head coach in basketball. In addition to coaching , he served part of this time as director of athletics and physical education with special emphasis on the physical training program of the Army trainees on the Rolla campus. Since leaving the faculty 1949, he has been owner and manager of a Rolla drug store and the Rolla Swimming Pool.

Dr. G. Edwin Lorey, associate professor of ceramic engineering has been appointed director of the Extension Division at UMR. At the same tin1e, Dwight L. Hafeli, Rolla businessman and former U.M.R. faculty member was named coordinator of educational short courses and conferences in the Extension Division. Established on the Rolla campus in September, 1964, the Extension Division enrolled over 3,000 students d uring the first year of operation. The Extension Division is responsible for all programs beyond the usual academic offerings on the Rolla campus. These programs include the St. Louis Graduate Engineering Center, located on the campus of the University of Missouri at St. Louis, off-campus credit courses, evening courses on the Rolla campus, non-credit courses, short courses , conferences an d institutes.

Geophysical Observatory has recently been established on the campus to accelerate geophysical research. The gravity meters were designed several years ago by Dr. Hughes M. Zenor, director of the UMR Obseratory while he was an employee at Humble. Humble used the instruments in water-covered areas, lowering them from a boat and taking recordings by remote control. To be adopted as earthquake seismometers, the meters will require some modification. Data will be gathered by the meters and recorded on magnetic tape. It will then be transmitted by long distance telephone to the UMR laboratories and the position and magnitude of earthquakes may be determined a few minutes after occurrence. Dr. Zenor als 0 states the instruments will be used for a study of earth tides. Due to attraction of the moon and sun, the earth 's surface moves up and down periodically with the rotation of the earth. August 1965

Extension Director Lorey first came to Rolla in 1956 as assistant professor of ceramic engineering. A native of New York, Lorey received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in ceramic engineering from Alfred University and the Ph.D. in ceramics from Rutgers. Prior to coming to Rolla, he has been a research assistant and instructor at Rutgers and research assistant at Alfred University. Lorey is past president of the Ceramic Educational Council of the American Ceramic Society, past president of the Rolla chapter of Sigma Xi honor society, and vice chairman of the Materials Committee of the American Society of Engineering Education. He is the author of several technical publications, and has been a consultant for refractories, glass and clay industries of Missouri. A Rolla civic leader, Lorey has been active in church and community affairs. Hafeli was on the staff of the athletic department of the University of Mis-

Another fraternity will be added to the campus this academic year. The new frat is the Epsilon Psi chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, the o ldest greek letter fraternity originally organized for Negro men. It was founded in 1906 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. There are now three hundred and thirty-three graduate and undergraduate chapters in the United States and two foreign countries . The Alpha house is locat ed at the intersection of Highway 63 and Elm Street.

Wins National Honor Members of the Delta Sigma Phi social fraternity at UMR have received national recognition for excellence. The chapter ranked number one among the 68 chapters of the men's organization. Because UMR grants degrees only in engineering and science the scholastic achievement becomes more significant. Second in the national scholastic rank was the UniverSity of Southern California chapter. Southern Methodist U niverSity took second honors and the engineering and science students of Georgia Institvte of Technology chapter were rated fourth. A UMR scholar ship plaque is awarded twice annually to the initiated member showing the greatest scholastic improvement and the best grade average. One m 0 nth's fraternity expenses award goes to tw o members showing t he best first semester grade average.
