Mathematics -Computer Science Building Dedicated The l\Iat hematics-Computer Science Building on the UMR campus was dedica ted October 27. Guests at the dedication were two presidents of national pro fessional associations, a graduate school dean , director of a resea rch center and distinguished industrial-academic mathematician . In addition to attending the dedication ceremonies, these men conducted a symposium commemorating the completion of the facility on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. W. C. Royster, professor of mathematics and dean of the Graduate School at the Un iversity of Kentucky , delivered the dedicatory a ddress, speaking "On Univalent Functions" at the first session of the symposium. Other symposium participants and their topics were: H. O. Hartley, professor of sta tistics and director of the Institute of Statistics at Texas A & M University, "Monte Carlo Methods in Stimulation; " Anthony Ralston , professor and chairman of computer science at State University of New York at Buffalo and president of Association for Computing Machinery, "Computer Language for Teaching - P undits and Pedants.

Coast Guard Grant to Research Oil Spills A hurricane half an ocean away has some effect on the movement of an oil spill from one point in that oceao to another. Just how much it effects this movement is being studied, far from any ocean, at UMR . Directed by Dr. Ronald Reisbig, associate professor of mechanical engineering at UM R, the project is supported by a gran t of $35 ,397 from the U. S. Coast Guard. Dr. Darryl Alofs, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is co-investigator. This grant enables the research tea m of two professors and three graduate students to study the coupled effects of both waves and wind movements on an oi l spill.

The U. S. Coast Guard has equipment that can salvage the oil in case of a major spill. Using airplanes and seagoin g vessels, the oil is surrounded by a mechanical barrier and can eventually be sucked up off the surface of the water into tanks. This is called "harvesting." Harvesting equipment, however, is never on the scene when oil is spi lled. So authorities have to be able to determine how long it will take to transport the equipment to the general vicinity, how far the oil will have moved and in

what direction. " If local surface wind were the only factor determining the ra te and direction of oil movements," R eisbig explains, " figuring where a spill would be at a certain time would be easy. But different winds , miles from the spill, can have other effects on waves. The wind tunnel we have constructed for our wave-simulation tank can blow air at various ' speeds which travel with, against or at fixed angles to the waves . Now we can study all aspects of oil movements in order to create a compu-

" One of the b<' 3ic reasons we need to be a ble to predict the movement of an oil spill with accuracy," says D r. Reisbig, " is not only to determine where and when the spill will hit a shore line, but also to know where and 'when it can be intercepted "ith equipment designed to recover the oil.

"If the spill remains in the ocean long enough, living organisms within the water eat a nd destroy all of it. It is just as much of a disaster to lose this source of energy as it is to let the spill hit land and pollute beaches and wildli fe. " MATHEMATICS - COMPUTER, SCIENCE BUILDING DEDICATED sessions of the symposium were: Victor Klee, p rofessor of mathematics at the University of Washington and president of the Mathematics Association of America, who spoke on " Unsolved Geometrical P robl e ms in Physics, Chemi stry and Botany," and the topic of J erome Spanier , professor of mathematics at Claremont Graduate School was " The Fractional Calculus."

" One thing most people forget when they read or hear about a spill is that there is a limited amoun t of oil in the ea rth 's underground reservoirs. It is a valuable natural resource.

The new building, completed earlier this year, houses the UMR department of mathematics, the computer science department and UMR 's Computer Center. Archi tects for the facility were Froese, Maack and Becker of St. Louis, Mo., and it was built by M inner Construction Co., also of St. Louis.

Note From the Chancellor

Earlier research on wave movements and oil spills has been going on for more than a year with limited equipment. The new 12-foot long wave simulation tank with a wind tunnel is now ready for use. By next July studies of the effects of both wind and waves on the speed and direction of an oil spill will be completed.

Enrol-lment vs Academic Requirements

Eventually, all the information gathered will be fed into computers which will then be able to make predictions of the oil spill movements . That is, if the UMR research team doesn't get sea-sick.

Missouri Ri oer 'noentory Directed by UMR A contract for an en.gineerin g and scientifi c study of the M issouri River between Rulo , Nebraska , and the mouth af the river near St. Louis has been awarded to UMR by the U. S. Corps of Engineers; Kansas City District. The study will provide added basic environmental information for use in engin eering projects rela ted to the M issouri Ri ver. The Corps of Engineers is in charge of the Missouri River Navigation and Bank Stabilization Project which means the Corps must maintain a navigation chann el in the river at least nine feet deep and 300 fe et wide from the river's mouth in St. Louis to Sioux City, Iowa. Though the corps has had some data on the river , it has never had "an extensive environmental inventory" as termed by Colonel J ames Peck , deputy district engineer for the Corps' Kansas City District.

Professor Paul Munger , of the Department of Civil Engineering at Rolla, is co-ordinating the work. The areas that are being studied are: Acquatic Biology; Water Quality ; Engineering (of projects on the river, such as the

The trend today across the nation is for enrollment to drop in institutions with high academic requirements . This decrea.sing trend has affected engineering and science more adversely than ot her fields. This downward trend is unfortunate beca use this country has been built largely upon the productivity of people who have faced and met demanding tasks. E ngin eers and scientists have made profou nd contributions to the adva ncement of our singularity among nations. Any stu dent from high school or from community colleges who is average or above academically should not be afraid to enter UMR in engi neerin g, the liberal arts or science. We point ou t to stud en ts considering engineering that a 4-year engineering or science degree is a good foundation for many types of careers. In reality, a student enteri ng engineeri ng and science will not have to be concerned about hi s career preference until 4 years later. As a springboard for diversified career opportunities, engi neering and science are probably the best programs

The latter is being done by satellite that was launched last summer. It takes aerial photographs of the river area to hel p identify the kinds of energy wave length given off by di fferent kinds of trees and soi l. Since each kind of plant a nd earth formation gives off a differen t kind of wavelength , almost like a fin gerprint, scientists can get a large perspective of the river basin area. Students come from three University of M issouri campuses , Rolla, Columbia , and Kansas City ; from Kansas State University, Manhattan and Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville.

for a student to pursue for four years', We all ack nowledge that a 4-year engineering degree or science degree is demanding but the rewards are great. The liberal arts in an environment, such as UMR offers, provides a unique opportunity for the student. There are few in stitutions in the country in which liberal a rts majors have the opportunity for such wide exposure to engineering and science. This is ind eed an opportunity which will enable the liberal arts student not only to gain a rich academ ic program but give them a special insight to help guide the direction of science and engineering in the future , UMR has every opportunity to achi eve a very significant enrollment increase if students wo uld take advantage of the special opportuniti es presented by the campus and also recognize the foundation for diversified careers which degrees from here will provide for the future. We feel that this potential will be reali zed and that our enrollment will soon begin to increase at a comfortabJe rate but not to the extent that we will become a general university,


Who Said the Greek System is Dying? By Mrs. Winona Roberts, Public Information Specialist

In one recent year , three fraternities closed at the University of Michigan ... At Columbia University, fraternities and sororities take in outside roomers and boarders to make ends meet . And at colleges and universities all over the East coast , fraternities are closing, and at some schools, have been abolished altogether .

At the University of Missouri-Rolla , things a re different. Thi s year 's fraternity pl edge class was 33 1, a total of 49 per cent of the new freshman men. In the pas t decade , five frat ernities have been activated , nine new houses have been built (five on New Fraternity Row) , several have built addition s and one more house is in the plannin g stage. And , for the first time, UMR now has two national sororities on campus, and this fall had its fir st sorority rush week. Kappa Delta became a fullfled ged chapter and initiated its first 12 members late in October. It has a pledge class of six. Zeta Tau Alpha colony , with 15 pled aes, will become a chapter sometime next sem ester. Both groups were established as local sororities (growing out of two frat ernity little sister groups ) for about 18 months to two years before their petitions to the na ti ona l sororiti es were accepted. During tha t time the girls met in the Student Union each week , encouraged each other to improve scholarship , got involved in community servi ce and extended their social activities. The girls feel th a t the groups will grow more rapidly as word gets around that there a re now sororities on what is often thought of as a predomina tely male campus. There is good reason to believe that sororiti es will flouri sh. UM R has a long tradition as a strong fraternity campus. " The fraterniti es came early (the first in 1903) and probably because of lack of school housing and social life, quickly became strong. In a very real sense , UMR and the fraternities have grown up together. And it has been a happy partnership ," says 6

Robert V. Wolf, professor of metallurgical engineering. Professor Wolf is the long-time faculty advisor for Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, has served ::OJ his fraternity's national vice president and was several years adviser to the Interfraternity Council. Will the traditional strength of the Greek system on the Rolla campus be enough to carry it through the revolutionary storms that have been fatal to fraternities on other campuses? Or is the Midwest , traditionally slower to make changes, merely lagging behind the rest of the country, with trouble just around the corner? Student leaders and faculty members closest to the fraternities differ somewhat in their viewpoints as to what may happen in the future. But they agree on one point: as a whole the fraternity system here is one of the best.

ternity men -

gives several clues.

If you're a student at Rolla , chances are better than one out of four that you . belong to one of the social fraternities. You may be a member of a group that numbers as low as 15, or as high as 100. You may li~ in a house that is a converted residence, or in one of the new houses whose cost runs into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. As a group your fraternity may stress scholarship, athletic prowess in varsity or intramural sports, a tradition of service, leadership in campus organizations - or all of these - or others. In any case, you're part of a system that seems to be doing extremely well. You're also in a fraternity system that isn't quite like any other. And these differences, in the opinion of many campus observers , largely account for its strength.

More objective sources confirm this belief. Last year the U MR Interfraternity Council (IFC) received the annual Iron Man award as the outstanding IFC in the country in its division. Judging was based on reports of fraternity activities and service projects. There is hardly a chapter on the UMR campus that hasn't won some national honor in recent years. This year , in competition with 184 other chapters and 16 colonies, Lambda Chi Alpha was chosen outstanding chapter of the fraternity. Delta Si gma Phi received the outstanding chapter award for three consecutive years, and Pi Kappa Alpha for two consecutive years. Others have won regional "best chapter" honors and have been close national runn ers-up for best chapter. Other awards have been received for effici ency, chapter publications, public relations, scholarship , campus activities, money management, outstanding individual members - and even outstanding faculty adviser (Dr. Paul Munger for Beta Sigma P si and Professor Wolf for PiKA .)

Many of these differences stem from the fact that the Rolla campus itself is different. It's technological university with a homogeneous student body. It has a long-standing reputation for high academic standards that leave little free time for purely social activities or just plain goofing-off. Fraternities have traditionally put a lot of stress on scholarship. Rolla also has had a largely male student population. (This year's 406 women , of whom more than 100 are married , is a new high .) This lack of coeds effects the fraternities in several obvious ways. It usually comes as a surprise to people from fully coeducational campuses that there are no fraternity housemothers in fraternities here. (Chaperones, usually faculty couples, are brought in for parties or when girls are in the houses for social even ts.) The members themselves take most of the responsibility for running their houses , often including keeping the food budget on an even keel. Usually the only paid employees are the cooks, who frequently double as allaround " moms " to their boys.

life in general is prett)£ quiet on weekdays and ordinary week-ends. But six or seven weekends a year are set aside as "party" week-ends, and then the Miners playas hard as they work at other times . Such week-ends are well named. This literally means almost continuous parties from F riday afternoon when some 750 to 800 girls arrive on campus till they leave again on Sunday. With exception of Greek Week-end (for fraternity men) and Independence Weekend (especially for non-Creeks), party week-ends are campus-wide with parties and dances on Friday and Saturday nights in both independent and Greek houses. Rising costs have brought about some changes. Traditionally, fraternity parties at Rolla have been open to all, Greek or independent. Now higher costs and larger fraternity membership have forced some houses to restrict parties to members and invited guests only. Also some fraternities combine with others or with clubs for one or both of their week-end parties. This open attitude toward all students has been a long-standing characteristic of UMR fraternities . Many independents say that there is more cooperation here between independ ents and Greeks than on most campuses. Fraternities and organized indepenrlent groups compete in intramurals, join in social activities , work together in campus organizations. Most pooh-pooh cny idea of a Greek block vote in campus politics. "It just doesn 't work that way here," they say. "Our fraternities have never be'en typical of the national image ," says Paul Ponder , director of student services. "For one thing, they have n ~ve r been as expensive relative to other costs on campus. (Fraternity housebill s, which include everything, run about $90 to $110 per month . University dormitories cost $940 for nine months.) Thus, they have never been institutions of 'conspicuous consumption.' They have never been oriented to a high level of social activities . Consequently, as these things died out in popularity, we haven't been hurt here because we didn 't have them in the first place. And our fraternities have always been very much service-minded." The list of service projects by fra ternities is long and varied . They cooperate on almost every worthy cause in Ea~ter Rolla and Phelps County -

MSM Alu m nus

Seals, Cerebral Palsy , Muscular Dystrophy, Heart Fund, United, Fund . clothing drives - and along with other UMR students keep the Red Cross blood bank going. Several have cleanup projects for the city, in the parks and on campus. In a fall clean-up day this year, IFC members collected almost 900 bags of trash , and handed out litter bags. Most have parties for underprivileged children or help welfare in some way, and one has organized and directed a recreational program for rural school children. The Lambda Chi Alphas have probably the mos! ambitious project serving an annual chicken dinner which nets more than $1000 for the mentally retarded and cerebral palsy schools. And the IFC Greek Week Carnival proceeds go to benefit the Boys Town of Missouri. Fraternity men, through Gamma Alpha Delta (a service fraternity), have lJeen the back-bone of UMR's program in the inner-city of St. Louis . While fraternities on many campuses are going through turmoil in attempting to make changes to keep up with the times, UMR's fraternities have largely been spared this ordeal. Mostly, say campus observers, this is true because UMR fraternities already have most of what other fraternities are seeking. " We have been fortunate," says professor Wolf, " in having university administrators who have given the fraternities maximum self-government with minimum number of rules imposed from the outside. As a result, UMR fraternities already enjoy many of the freedoms that fraternities are now fighting for on other campuses - such as the right to run their own houses and operate as self-regulated societies." Too , Rolla fraternities have gone to new methods of pledging. Instead of the old rush system of one frantic week at the beginning of school, the Interfraternity Council here encourages fraternities to rush a prospective member during the spring and pledge him during the summer . Then rush week in the fall is essentially an orientation period for those already pledged, and an opportunity for others who might wish to pledge to become acquainted . Unlike some campuses, freshmen may live in fraternity houses here. The pledge period has changed , too. Although most houses still have pledge duties , hazing is almost totally abolished

and duties made more relevant than, for example, the old "doorknob polishing" tradition , says Dr. LeRoy Thompson, IFC and Sigma Phi Epsilon adviser . Mark Armstrong, president of IFC, believes that the pledge program should be chiefly educational - a time for the pledge to get to know the fraternity and the fraternity to get to know the pledge. "Actives are taking a more responsible interest in the future members. The pledge policy has become more a joint effort of the ,actives and. pledges to develop tne I1ledges into contributing members to the house as soon as possible." Fraternities here can't afford to sit on their past records if they are to continue to succeed , most agree. But nc one sees an early demise . "There may be a tendency for students to be anti-organization any organization," says Paul Ponder. "All organizations independents, fraternities, eating clubs, campus groups of all kinds - are down this year." Roger Ellis, 1971 UMR graduate, former president of Sigma Pi, editor of the Missouri Miner (student newspaper) and 1971 IFC man-of-the-year , sees several trends that can hurt fraternities , such things as the popularity of apartment living and more sophisticated and independent manner of thinking among students. "Fraternities may have to work a little harder to get the kind of pledges they want," he says. But he 's an enthusiastic booster for the fraternity system. "Whatever I accomplished I owe mostJy: to the fra-. ternity system," he says. "No fraternity man who achieves anything on campus has done it himself. Someone paved his way ." Professor Wolf views the changing world as a challenge to the true meaning of fraternities. He sees fraternity living as a place of learning on the edge of the campus, a microcosm of life in general, where students learn to live together. If fraternities are to survive, and the) will , they will have to build on something positive - on brotherhood and the fraternal spirit. It's no longer enough to have the biggest house or the best parties. Social fraternities will have to become 'social' in the broadest sense - social in their concern for each other and for others ," he says.

Improved Employment • PI ct ure In answer to an ano nymous letter chall enging a recent report on the im proved employment picture , L. E. N uss , Director of P lacement and Indu stry Relations , makes the following report. " Between September 18 and October 18, twenty-two a lumni , many of whom were soon to be d ischarged from service, asked the Placement Office for assistance. During the same period, thirtyseven empl oyers sent in requests for ex perienced engin eers. Several of these employers had more than one position opening. One major company has openings for 35 experienced engineers and stated they would like to hire most of them from UMR."

Non-Acadamic Wage Increase The Un iversity of Missouri Board of C urators approved a $3 68 ,000 expenditure for wage increases for non-academic personnel. This amount was received from a recent special session of the General Assembly in a supplementa ry appro priation to the University's genera l operating budget for the present fi scal year. Non-academic employees of the University at an annual salary of $ 10,400 a year or less will share in the addit ional one percent wage and sa lary fund s which have become available for these employees.

e.E. Trains EngineeringAids During the summer semester 15 residents of Kansas C ity , Missouri , spent eight weeks on the UMR campus learning to become civil engineering aides . The UM R ex tension project was sponsored by the Kansas City Model Cities Agency and the Missouri Department of Community Affairs. It was designed to t rai n inner-city residents to work , under the supervision of a n engineer, in survey parties, on construction projects or as draftsmen. The men whose ages ranged from 19 to 26 , spent eight hours a day on the campus. They lived in a residence hall and were in effect , college st.udents for eight weeks . Jerry Bayless , UMR Associate Professor of Civi l Engineering, was the program director. " They attended basic classes in surveyi ng, construction materials testing and engi neering drawing," Bayless said. "The students a lso have developmental reading and mathematics , an hour of physical education every day and a weekly group counseling session." At the completion of the project all 15 men had either been interviewed or had appli ed to companies or governmental age ncies in the Kansas City area who could use civil engineering a ides. At the end of September a check was mad e a nd Bayless said, " We know that at least seven have either returned to school or are on jobs. But we haven 't had a chance to check the status of the others." 9

Shamrock Club Closes One of Rolla 's old est cooperative eating clubs, Shamrock Club ; has closed its doors. Fi na ncial eli f fi culties wi th creditors and finance companies proved to be too much. Shamrock Club bega n serving independents of the then School of Mines and Metallurgy in 1938 , two years

It was during his tenure as president that the organization employed a staff member and established an alumni office on the Rolla campus in 1953. It was with great pride that he worked for its development and structured the nucleus which resulted in the present strong MSM -UMR Alumni Association.

Survivors are his widow, Elizabeth, 17 Cambridge Court, Glendale, Missouri; brother-in-law Albert E. Long, Rolla , and nieces and a nephew. Burial was in the Rolla Cemetery, Rolla, Mo .

after the opening of the Engineers" Club. Durin g the summer school the new business manager inherited the past difficulties of other managers. Owning their own building, Shamrock had both upkeep of the building expenses and finance company payments to meet. Also the level of membership could not support these costs and those related to operating the club. The final decision came before opening of the fall semester by the 'managing body of the club . The three remaining cooperative eatCampus , Engineers and ing clubs Tech - now are serving independents of UMR. Both Campus Club and Engi neers Cl ub are serving about 170 to 180 members, while the Tech Club is handling about 120. All three clubs are straining their facilities to serve this number of members.

University Enrollment, UMR Drops 8.5 Percent The enrollments this fall on the University of Missouri 's four campuses increased by 1,032 students over last year. Thi s year's total enrollment of 47 ,472 also exceeded the projected enrollment maDe by the University by 164 students. On-ca mpus enrollments as compared to a year ago are: Columbia: 12

22 ,101, an increase of

159 or 0.8 per cent. Kansas City: 9,819, a gain of 309 or 3.3 per cent. Rolla:

4,352, a decrease of 403 or

8.5 per cent.

St. Louis: 11,155 , an increase of 967 or 9.5 per cent. In noting the Rolla campus decrease,

Dr. Brice Ratchford , President, University of Mi ssouri , said , it was not unex-

pee ted and cited several other factors which may have contributed. He said recent nationwide publicity showing manpower surplusses in the science and engineering fields may have discouraged students from entering these areas. The President said the decrease in graduation requirements at Rolla from 142 to 132 semester hours also is being felt as less time is needed for the students to complete their course work.
