Richard Bauer Receives President's Plaque The Association awards this plaque to Richard H. Bauer, '52 in appreciation for his services as president. It would be difficult to find an association president of recent years who has made as many personal visitations to our various area meetings as Dick and Shirley have. Their attendance serves as an example of loyalty and devotion to all. Dick's service as the chairman of the Alliance of Alumni Associations of the University of Missouri achieved new levels of cooperation between the four campuses and our central administration. His committee responsibilities have also included serving as our alumni representative on the Chancellor's Search Committee. During his term as president the Alumni Association has had the most substantial increase in financial support in any two years in its history .

SPE¡AIME, Houston Jim Paul, '42 , workhorse of the Houston section , did it again during the fall SPE meeting. Although carrying maj or responsibilities in connection with that organiza tion, he set up a meeting for MSM -UMR alumni at the Petroleum Club on October 13. It was a beautiful setting. The Planjes and Mackamans joined the UMR faculty and students already in Houston for the SPE.

It was reported that there was over a billion dollars worth of mining equipment on display for the AMC show in Las Vegas the week of October 8. Buyers were out looking and the MSMUMR alumni, faculty and students were too. Through the good offices of Tom Holmes, '50, president of Ingersoll· Rand, & his sterling crew , the rough places were made smooth & an excellent breakfast arranged for visiting Miners. The Terrace Room of the Desert Inn was the site. Those present heard from Noland Aughenbaugh, UMR chairman of mining, petroleum and geological engineering, and Frank Mackaman. Ajunct professor Jim Scott was there with Edna . So, on October 10, the following signed the register: Ron Ziegler, '69; Don & Betty Haskell , '49; Terral G. Young, '66 ; Russell C.

The UMR cross country team had a 10-1 dual record and an individual team victory at Central Methodist. Other meets include a strong finish at the AllMissouri Meet which pushed the top teams in the MIAA District Qualifying Meet into the nationals. The cross country team was led by sophomore Brent Haefner who set course records at UMR, Central Methodist , and an all time UMR record at St. Louis University . Only one senior was on the Miners team this year and with some outstanding prospects who have indicated that they will enroll at UMR next fall the cross country team seems definitely on the upward trend.

Water Polo is 18-3 This Year The 1978 Water Polo team had an outstanding season finishing 18 -3. Coach Bob Pease indicated that balanced scoring was the rule for the year. The team's only losses came during the Midwest regionals, where the Miners dropped three st raight but to some of the best teams in the nation. The Miner seniors who saw a lot of action and will be missed are Wing Matt Heinicke, Guard Leonard Wolf, and Goalie Paul Conant. Pease stated that the Miners have man y outstanding underclassmen , and this will ensure many more outstanding seasons. Among the many victories this year was the Mississippi Valley title, of which Pease is very proud. During the regionals, UMR played its best game ever in the eyes of the players and coach. The contest was against Loyola of Chicago, the 6th ranked team in the nation, a game which saw a 19-11 loss, but one in which Coach Pease felt brought everything out that his team had in it to win.

The publication of the ALUMNUS is financed by gifts to the ANNUAL ALUMNI FUND. University funds do not pay for the ALUMNUS. The Board of Directors of the MSM-UMR Alumni Association sets the circulation policy and these are its guidelines: *Each issue is mailed to all members of the most recent graduating class. *Each issue is distributed to all faculty and staff members. *Each issue is mailed to all University of Missouri Curators and certain University administrators. *The February, August , and December issues are mailed to all alumni of record . *The other issues are mailed to donors to the Annual Alumni Fund, so that they receive six issues after the date of their gift.

Intramurals For the first time in intramural history at UMR the team sports have been divided into two divisions. This has been very well received by all organizations and the competition in both divisions has been a lot closer for the fall semester. Individual winner in football in Divi· sion I was Sigma Phi Epsilon, and the runner up was Kappa Alpha. In Division II the champion was Sigma Pi and the runner up was Pi Kappa Alpha. With both volleyball and soccer going into the final week , the teams in the playoffs in soccer are: Division 1-TKE, Sig Nu, Sig Phi Epsilon , Lambda Chi Alpha. In Division II- TJHA, Beta Sig Pi, Kappa Alpha, Pi Kappa Alpha and Triangle. [n volleyball Beta Sig will be trying for its 4th straight championship. Other teams in Division [ are: Tau Kap- · pa Epsilon , Sig Phi Epsilon, and Lambda Chi. [n Divison II is Theta Xi , Kappa Sig, African Students Association, and Kappa Alpha. Going into the final week the team leaders are: Sig Ep, Tech Engine, Sig Nu, TKE, and Kappa Sig. Presently, there are 32 teams in the men's intramural program and 10 teams in the women's program. Leading the women after going into the volleyball finals are: GDI, AWS, Sig Chi Omega. AWS won the women's swimming championship and Kappa Delta was runner up. In men's swimming, Sig Nu successfully defended their championship for the second straight year.

UMR's Coach Pease Teaches in Brazil As a result of a two·week "working" visit to Brazil this fall , University of Missouri-Rolla's swimming coach, Bob Pease, has a broader outlook of the field of coaching in general. Pease took part in an annual sports education exchange program sponsored by Partners of the Americas, funded by the State Department and South American countries, with arrangements made by UMR's Center for International Programs and Studies. He spent two weeks in September in Belem, capitol of Para, Brazil, Missouri's sister state in South America . His students were 22 men and women graduates in the field of coaching. Swimmers used for demonstration purposes were members of four of the local swim clubs.

This variation in mailing lists results in some problems. We get news items in a variety of ways and do not make it a practice to check to see if the news item refers to a donor to the Fund-that is not a part of the decision of whether to publish. Consequently, we do publish items which refer to alumni who are not regular readers of the ALUMNUS. They never know. Frequently , we get a news item without any identification as to the alumnus involved . If you have sent us an item and your believe we have ignored it, there are several tests you can make: First, are you a current donor (you are not current if you get Fund mailings), and second, was the item identified so that your name and relationship to UMR was clear. Let us know if we are guilty of missing a newsworthy item-that is not our intention. MSM Alumnus/ 39

UM System Enrollment Down Slightly The University of Missouri system experienced a slight drop in enrollment, as anticipated, this fall on three of its campuses-Columbia, Kansas City and St. Louis-but had an increase at Rolla. President James C. Olson told the UM system Board of Curators today (Oct. 13) that the total head count is 50,733 , which includes students enrolled in off-campus credit courses. The oncampus head count is 49,128, a decline of 1,155 from the same period last year. Effective this fall, the Coordinating Board for Higher Education is using the number of students enrolled in credit courses-whether conducted on or off campus-for official enrollment purposes among state colleges and universities. " The Rolla campus, which has had steady enrollment increases for the past five years, has a campus head count this fail of 5,214, an increase of 333. The 1978 fall figure at Columbia is 23,064, a drop of 410; the Kansas City campus has 9,962, a decrease of 592; and the St. Louis campus has 10,888, down 486. President Olson pointed out that enrollment shifts have occured with greater enrollments in more expensive academic areas this fall. For instance, he said, UMC has a 9 percent increase in the number of students enrolled in doctoral programs and a 6 percent increas e In undergraduate engineering enrollment. He said UMR also experienced a 10 percent increase in engineering enrollment but had a 3 percent decrease in the number of studeA{s enrolled in arts and sciences areas. At Kansas City, enrollment in the medical school increased by 5 percent, pharmacy enrollment was up 2 percent and dental school enrollment held steady.
