50 YEAR GRADUATES AT COMMENCEMENT For members of the Class of 1930, May 16-17-18 was a great party weekend! It had all the ingredients necessary. Once the group arrived in Rolla, there were no transportation problems ... the 50 year honorees and their families had their own UMR Bus that took them to and from campus, on a tour of Rolla, and to and from all scheduled events of the weekend . Most of the group stayed at Zeno's Motel where they had their own hospitality room. And, from Friday night to Sunday night there was plenty to do ...plenty of time to renew old ac-

quaintences and to meet many new friends to bring them up to date on campus activities. Planned events included an opening party at the Chancellor's Residence on Friday evening, luncheon at the Pubmobile (with a look at antique cars in the adjacent Carney Auto Museum at Memoryville, U.S.A.) on Saturday noon a1id the Golden Alumni Banquet that night. . The informal banquet program , conducted by Frank Mackaman, executive vice president of the MSM-UMR Alumni Association, consisted of

photos of the honorees and the campus 50 years before and a few bits of information about the individuals which some of them had thought were hidden in the past. Each of the honor graduates was given the opportunity to respond and to supply a few of his or her own reminiscences. Alumni President, Joe Mooney, was emcee of the After a leisurely Sunday morning, the honor class-joined the commencement platform party for lunch. Sunday afternoon, of course, was the big event. All 21 members of the Class of 1930 who were here for the

occasion donned academic robes and occupied places of honor at the 107th Annual Commencement ceremonies. They received special recognition from University officials, the 635 graduates, and the crowd of approximately 6,000 people attending graduation. A final party in the hospitality room at Zenos provided all with an' opportunity to review the activities of the weekend and say goodby to their hosts for the weekend, Gabe and Edith Skitek. . From all reports, it was a memorable reunion.

.Jennings R. Lambeth, '41 Delivers Commencement Address "Efficiency, rather than econom y and sheer volume, will be the watchword for today's graduates," Jennings R. Lambeth, senior vice president. commercial, Jones and Laughlin Steel Corp., Pittsburgh, Pa., told the audience at UM R's, 107th Annual Commencement, May 18. Lambeth , who holds the bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering (,4 1) and the professional degree of management engineer (,77) from the University of Missouri-Rolla, del ivered the commencement add ress and was awarded the doctor of engineering degree (honoris causa) by UM R. The world has changed a great dea l since his graduation , Lambeth told the graduates, most of them in engineering and the sciences, and the challenges which confront them will be quite different from the ones his generation faced . "The main problems (we faced) ," he said, "were related to the implementation and management of the explosive economic growth that occurred in the Western World following the end of World War II. "All this activity," he continued, "opened up almost unlimited fields for engineers to conquer. And the fact that they did so-that they did solve those myriad engineering problemsled to the creation of hundreds of thousands of new products and processes and whole new industries and changed our entire way of live." But, he stressed, "this scenario is beginning to change" and "the engineering emphasis has shifted." In the future, "there will be much

more attention paid to conserva tion of resources," he said . "You will be challenged to design machines that can be built with less material and less energy, and the machines will make products that will reflec t those same values." Citing the steel indust ry as an exa mple, Lambeth added that we also must "make more effective use of the production facilities that are presently at hand. We must find ways to dO a better job with what we have." This, he said, ca n be accomplished through better management of our people .. .backed up by a substantial effo rt on the technical side. "We must refine our production processes and improve our eq uipment in ways which will enhance the efforts of 9ur people. And that is where engineers come in. There are literally thousands of situations· in a complex production process like steelmaking where improvements can be made that will lead to higher productivity, or lower costs, or both, and a better, more efficiently produced product. It's all a part of doing a better job with what we have." In conclusion, he told the graduates that "we can continue to enjoy a high level of prosperity.and affluence" and that "our economic structure will continue to ' provide millions of fulfilling career opportunities-including opportunities in engineering:" But, he cautioned, "you may have to work harder, a little harder and be a little smarter to maintain the structure. And that is my challenge to you ."

Grandmafs Old Letters Are Historical Documents . Did you ever wish you could find a good home for all those old papers taking up space in your attic or basement-things like great grandfather's 1870 business ledgers and lodge records and those pictures and letters grandma saved? These items may have a place at the Rolla office of ~he jOint manuscript.collection cosponsored by the State Historical Society of Missouri and the University of Missouri's Western Historical Manuscript Collection. Your 'old papers may be important historical documents, the kind of material 'that makes Lip the collection and adds to the understanding of the history of this area. The Rolla office, recently established in Room G-3 of the University of Missouri-Rolla Library, is one of our four branches-one located on each of the campuses of the University of Missouri. Mark Stauter is in charge of the Rolla office; John F. Bradbury Jr. is manuscript specialist. Stauter says that the office is depe~i:lent 'On 'a rea residents who volunteer ma terial. The Rolla collection will Cover the general area south of the M issouri River, except for the St. Louis and Kansas City area. "Because of UMR's emphasis on technology and its 90-year history as the University of Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy, major concerns for the Rolla collection will be papers relating to mining, technology and engineering activities, but it will also be a repository for anything on the history of the general Ozarks area," Stauter says. "We are looking for such things as personal papers, journals, diaries, old photographs, manuscripts of all kinds and records of early-day businesses, chu( ches, fraternal and special interest organizations. We are especially interested in anything about ~arly -day mining, but we would like to have a chance to see anything pertinent to the history of this area," he adds. Bradbury, who is in charge of processing and cataloging rriaterials, says that

the historical manuscripts collection will be responsible for preserving such papers for posterity. "What we can do here is to give professional care, processing and storage to historical documents and have them available for anyone interested," he explains. Papers will be sorted and indexed by subject matter, and the title and a description filed at all four branches of the collection, and each campus will have access to material at all the otl)ers. Stauter came to Missouri from Duke University in Durham, N.C., where he has been assistant university archivist for the past seven years. He holds a B.A. in history from the University of Michigan, his' native state, and M.A. And Ph.D. degrees from Duke University. Bradbury is a 1974 history graduate of UMR. He has done graduate work at the Uri'iversity of Wyoming and recently has worked for the U.S ._Forest Service in the 'Potosi District. He has collected Indian relics for many years and' has contributed to the Central States Archaeological Journal. Both Stauter and Bradbury are available to speak to organizations and are intc::rested in meeting anyone who may have historical papers or know of someone who does. Their address is G-3 , UMR Library, Rolla, MO. 65401 , and the telephone number is 314-341-4874. They hope people with old papers stored away won't think that what they have is not important enough to be considered . " Remember, we ma y be interested in collecting some things that people might think would not be of interest outside their own families," Stauter points out. "But such things as a letter from a Civil War soldier, or a paymaster's records from an old mine often can add much to the picture of life in that era."

UMR Honors Progra.ms Nobody ever worries about the smart kids. They do their homework, make A's in class. They'll do all right. Right? Right. But they'll do a lot better if you challenge them. Honors programs are springing up in a lot of schools to do just that-challenge the student who is especially bi-ight or more interested or more highly motivated. Studies show that University of Missouri-Rolla students are especially bright and interested and highly motivated . And for those who want to go a little farther into their studies than they would in the average class, UMR has set up honors programs. For freshman and sophomores, the general honors program consists of honors sections of certain courses. For juniors and seniors, the divisional honors program allows independent studies in their major fields and allows them to enter graduate level work even before . the bachelor's degree is earned . "I thought I wouldn' t have time for an honors lab," says Kim Denney, chemical engineering sophomore from Florissant. " But I enrolled in a physics general honors lab. We think up our own ways to do stuff. There are fewer kids, so I can ask -questions that pop into my brain . We have a good time, and we're learning, too." "I was in an honors program at McCluer North High School," she says. " Now I'm 'il} one at UMR . Honors' programs require extra effort, but you learn more." "You have to think in my honors lab," says Mike Bowlin, physics sophomore from Eldon. "You walk in, and Dr. Sparlin, my lab professor, says, 'You're going to invent a lab experiment for me.' That's exciting." Sparlin's classes have been honors-oriented for some time. And UMR initiated its formal honors programs in the fall. "Students seem to really enjoy the honors courses," says Chancellor Joseph M. Marchello. "So, we plan to offer them as many as we can." . The general and divisional programs are separate, but students can take part in both. The general honors program requires certain scores on standardized tests or special permission for admission. The divisional honors program is different for

each school and college, but, in general, requires completion 'of at least 60 hours with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 and acceptance of the student into the program by the department in which he or she is majoring. Why take part? "The divisional honors program is not tailored simply for the straight-A student," says Gerry Dolan, senior in engineering mechanics with a dual enrollment in mechanical engineering, from Arnold . "It's set up for the good student who wants to achieve beyond what he would normally do in school. It's designed to let him or her know what's really going on in the profession . I'm entering the divisional honors program because I wa nt to get into research, and this program will allow me to do it right now." Divisional honors means students can be dually enrolled in their senior courses and in graduate school for two semesters (other seniors can be dually enrolled in graduate school for only one semester.) It means students do independent work with facult y 'involved in research . Their honors papers are permanently placed in the UMR Library . And, they have an honors designation on their diploma, receive a divisional honors certificate and take part in an honors seminar. In the general honors program, students are in small groups and assignments allow them to go off on their own-delve deeply into the subject. Their work is independent, but they can have a lot of extra attention from professors if they want it. "Physics students sometimes don't get to see all the phenomena they might see if they were given fewer directions," says Sparlin. ''They say, ' Why can't I do all the experiments in the book instead of just half of them. Why can't I make up my own rules for doing them?' So, the honors sections let them." Different honors sections are offered in different semesters. Students can check the class schedules at enrollment time or see their departmental advisers. It's a good thing to check out. Students in the program seem to agree that honors courses can be habit forming. MSM Alumnusl7



Floyd and Ellen Smith, '41 Discuss Iranian Experiences Editor's Note: The following are excerpts from an article that appeared in the January 4 issue of Building News, Inc. The article consists of an interview with Floyd and Ellen Smith.

The ability of man to endure is well known but for Whittier, Calif. contractor Floyd Smith and his wife, Ellen, 1979 has been a year to remember-from being an eyewitness to the takeover of the hostages in the U.S. Embassy in Iran to a terrifying last minute detention at the airport that nearly ended with them being held as spies. The March issue of the California Constructor (CC), published for Associated General Contractors of California members, presented a first hand account of Floyd and Ellen's dramatic exit on New Year's Day from the Mehrabad Airport in-Tehran , a city where he had spent the 12 months of 1978 working on a $60 million construction project for Hood Corporation of Whittier. The project was literally shut down by the bloody revolution which later was to see the Ayatollah Khomeini regime execute more than 600 people. Since then, the Iranian crisis has been a page one story. During this dangerous and 'u ncertain period, Floyd made trips to Iran in April and July for eight weeks each. Then he returned in September, taking Ellen. Since then he has been an eyewitness of the U.S. Embassy takeover in Tehran on Nov . 4 and has had a full time bodyguard 24 hours a day for the past seven months. He almost became a "hostage" himself, a nd he and his wife had another terrifying and dramatic Tehran Airport departure on Nov . II when they left the country. T he following interview was obtained at the AGC Annual Meeting and Holiday Conference in Palm Springs-one month to the day after the Smiths left Tehran: CC: Not, perhaps, since Dec. 7, 1941 , have Americans been so aroused and emotionally unified as they are now in the day-to-day episode of the . 8/ MSM Alumnus

They started throwing furniture out of the buildings. I didn't hear any shots-only the racket of Irania ns throwing all the furniture out. Once inside the compound, the Iranians carried out their work with precision , but without fanfare or chanting. Then, they locked. the gate and set up a loudspeaker. Very soon they had a crowd of cheerleaders outside. CC: How close did you personally come to being prevented from leaving the country? A: On Sunday, Nov. II , in the afternoon, just before Ellen and I were to go to the airport, I had a visit by the representative of employees of our company . He brought a petition signed by the Iranian employees demanding that I and the Hood Corporation personally guarantee all their wages and severance pay in the future. They had been paid up to date. If I didn' t sign. they said , I would be prevented from leaving. I said, no, since none of these things were due them. However. in the future, if they were due, I would give any help to see that they received due wages and severance. It really boiled down to the fact they didn't want to work for the Iranian owners. They preferred Americans. I kept refusing and was finally able to talk them out of it.

CC: What happened at the airport? A: We were detained by six armed revolutionary guards who took our passports and held us for nearly two hours. They wanted to find some reason to accuse us of being spies. Our papers were in order, and we were able to convince the guards they were wrong. I think what they really wanted was to make us angry, and then they would have an excuse to take us to the Embassy. For the first time in my life I felt out of control. We were the only Americans in the airport. They could have taken us hostage and no one would have known. However, just as the plane was about to leave, Ellen and I were let go. CC: California must look good after all that. Where do you go from here, Floyd? Ellen? Floyd: When conditions are back to normal, I intend to return to finish the job and look out for Hood's interests. Ellen: I plan to write a chronicle of the happenings over the last two years. I want our 'grandchildren to read what a brave man their grandfather was¡ during this trying time. I already have a name for the chronicle. It will be "En Shallah", which means "God Willing."

UMR Places In 'Mini Indy' Just a little more than a week before Johnny Rutherford thrilled the sporting world by winning his third Indianapolis 500 title, several University of MissouriRolla "racers" turned in a fine performance of their own in a mini-motoring showdown. Competing in the eastern division of the 1980 Mini Baja everit for mulitterrain vehicles, UMR's car finished 10th out of 21 entrants during the May 14-15 "Mini Indy" held at the University of Delaware. Syracuse University won the two-day competition , followed by Rochester Institute of Technology and Tennessee Tech . Designing and building the vehicle is a final , semester-long assignment for seniors graduating with degrees in mechanical engineering. Students who made the trip were Mark Scamahorn, senior; Gary Sedlacek, senior; Tom Radcliff, senior; Rick Davis, senior; Dave Thomas, senior; and Greg Pannone, sophomore. Scamahorn, Sedlacek and Radcliff were May graduates. This was the third year that UMR participated in the event, and unlike Rutherford's Indy 500 car, the UMR auto had to climb hills, pull heavy loads, turn on a dime and go over tough terrain and deep water. "I thought the team and the car did a fine job," said mechanical engineering department Lab Supervisor Dick Smith. Smith and team advisor Tom Faucett accompanied the six students on the trip to Newark, Delaware. This year's car was 250 pounds lighter than the 750-pound model of 1979. And it performed very well until the rear axle broke. "Ironically, the broken axle kept us from competing in the endurance run," Smith said. "Last year we had problems with the steering sector and couldn't compete in the same portion of the event." However, the 1980 entry stil¡1 impressed the team and in the process assured itself of another chance in next year's competition. "We will stick with this one," Smith said of the car. "There will be a few changes made, just beefing it up a little and changing the body to a small degree."

Before the axle broke the UMR team had competed well in the land and water maneuverability tests, as well as the pulling contest. "I think we would 'have finished in the top five if the axle hadn't broken," Smith said. Although the site of the 1981 competition is still to be determined, UMR will definitely by there. As Faucett explained prior to this year's event: "This adds the flavor of competition to what otherwise is a real-world experience in engineering design." With a proven vehicle in hand and another year's experience tucked away, the UMR team awaits the next checkered flag.

Miners Take Third In MiningCompetition There were just two prizes given-traveling trophies for the best and the worst teams-and the University of Missouri-Rolla came home with neither from the second annual Intercollegiate Mining Contest held in Tuscon, Ariz-.What they brought home was a respectable third-place rank and plans for capturing the title next year. Teams' competed in four contests: hand steeling-drilling using a sledgehammer and a hand steel with carbide bits; jackleg drilling-drilling with a pneumatic drill supported by a compressed air cylinder; track standing-laying 15 feet of narrow-gauge railroad track; hand mucking-shoveling ore by hand into a one-ton car. The winning team was Montana College of Mineral Science and Technology, with 31 of a possible 40 points. The University of Arizona, last year's winner, was second with 23 points. UMR , with 20 points, outranked the Colorado School of Mines (18) , South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (10), the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technlogy with one-and five other teams who scored no points at all. "Although Montana lost just one of the contests, the scores were close enough that UMR went into the last competition-track standing-with a chance to win," says Troy Harris, supervisor of UMR's experimental mine, who accompanied the group. Harris, members of the Society of Mining Engineers, which sponsored UMR's team, and Dr. Norman Smith, their faculty adviser, are already making plans for next year. " Now we know what we have to do to win," Harris says. "Montana didn't win a single point last year and they were embarrassed by it-so they went back and really worked. They were on a rigid physical training program all winter, and were in super condition. The contests take a lot of strength and stamina, and that is what we are going to be working on for next year." Harris is already loooking for volunteer hand steelers, jackleg drillers, track standers and hand muckers for next year's contests which will be held in Butte, Mont. He'll have a totally new team-all of this year's team will graduate before the 1981 competition. MSM Alumnus / 9

University of Missouri-Rolla assistant basketball coach Jim Dinsdale resigned May 7 to accept the head coaching position at Camdenton High School. Dale Martin, 26, an assistant basketball coach for the past three years at Central Missouri State University, was hired June 20 to replace Dinsdale. "We had many exceptional applicants and narrowed the search down to three individuals," UMR Athletic Director Billy Key said of the selection process. "Dale was our final choice on the basis that he had fine qualifications and was already a successful assistant coach with the MIAA." During Martin's final season at Central Missouri State, the Mules finished with a 26-2 record, winning the MIAA title and holding the top ranking in the nation during much of the 1979-80 season .

Martin graduated from Central Missouri State in 1976 and received his master's degree from the same' instittl- . tion. He also was a four-year letterman in basketball for the Mules, serving as team co-captain during his senior year. "When I was playing for Central Missouri, UMR was at one time the top team in the conference," Martin said . ''I'm hopeful we can re-establish that type of success and I look forward to working with Coach Key to attain it." Key foresees no problems concerning Martin's transition to the UMR position. "Dale is already familiar with the league structure, personnel and coaching staffs," Key said. "We think he will do an outstanding job and we're real happy he has decided to accept the position."

Head Football Coach Charlie Finley at practice.

Football Miners Return 33-Lettermen in 1980 UMR Head Coach Charlie Finley begins his ninth year at the helm with a vision of success for the 1980 football Miners. -. Coming off a 7-3-1 record in 1979, the Miners return 33 lettermen, 20 seniors and five players who gained some type of all-MIAA honors last season . "You can't call this a rebuilding year," Finley noted. "If our defense can keep on playing excellent football and the offense beefs up the attack , 1 think

the Miners will be in fine shape." Finley, a 1960 graduate of Southwest Missouri State University, has a 38-41-8 record as UMR head coach. He joined the Miners as an assistant in 1965, after coaching successful prep teams at Sarcoxie and Lebanon. Defense remains a key for the 1980 Miners, and the squad has some strong tradition to uphold. In 1979, the defense was nationally ranked most of the year and finished the season with the best statistics in the MIAA. "I think we'll be strong again defensively," Finley said. "This group has been together for a long time and really

1950 Football Team Homecoming Reunion Members of the 1950 Miner footb all team will gather at Homecoming in October to renew old acquaintances and celebrate their victorious season once again .

various players reacted under new systems. " We have a talented group of players, and I think we have recruited some of the best prep players in the state," Finley said. "For instance, one of our main concerns is replacing a guy.like Kevin Wolf at linebacker," Finley said. "Todd Fizer has shown a lot of promise in this area, and we also have a talented group of freshmen linebackers who could step into those big shoes of Kevin's." Finley thinks the Miners will be right in the thick of the MIAA race, and sees Southeast Missouri and Southwest Missouri State as the toughest teams to beat in the conference. "Northwest was also a surprise last year and should be tough again," Finley predicted. " But I'll tell you one thing-it is a lot harder to stay on top once you get there." If the Miners can play good defense and the offense puts forth a timely scoring attack, the 1980 edition of UMR Football may find a place atop the MIA A standings.

FacultyPersonals~~~~~~~~~~ Memorial Resolution RICHARD H. KERR ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR MA THEMA TICS

Professor Richard H. Kerr was born in Ash Grove, Missouri, January 12, 1907, and attended public schools there. In 1929 . he graduated from Southwest Missouri State Technical College (now known as Sputhwest Missouri State University). His early experiences included radio and refrigeration servicing both in a selfemployed capacity and as manager of a service store. The experience he gained in this work enhanced by his singular capacity of observation, furnished him with a reservoir of tales about characters he had encountered at Ash Grove and elsewhere. The recounting of these tales lent a color to his conversations which enlivened their interest and enhanced one's knowledge of the teller and the environment wbich produced his unique character. Academic Service: Professor Kerr's academic experience began during World War II when he served as an instructor in the United States Army Signal Corps Schools from October, 1942, to September, 1946. This experience served him well as background for his teaching at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy as the University was known at the time of his arrival. Professor Kerr was appointed Instructor of Mathematics at the University in September of 1946 and rose to the rank of Associate Professor. As soon as Professor Kerr arrived on campus he began to pursue graduate study and since there was no advanced degree in mathematics offered here at the time, he elected to study in the field of physics under the direction of Dr. Louis Lund. He completed his Master of Science degree in Physics in 1950. Professor Kerr was an invaluable asset to the Mathematics Department as witness his teaching assignments which progressed from College Algebra through junior-senior level courses during his tenure at the University. This was a period of rapid change in ,the mission of the Uriiversity and necessitated adaptability to many different circumstances often requiring very demanding teaching schedules . Throughout his time Professor Kerr performed his duties.as teacher and advisor to hundreds of students with distinction . He greatly contributed toward establishing and maintaining a standard of excellence in the teaching of undergraduate mathematics here that has received wide acclaim throughout the industries which have employed our graduates. He was justly proud of his r.ole in this important endeavor. 16/ MSM Alumnus

His advisement activities also occupied a significant portion of his time, both as advisor to a fraternity (Sigma Tau Gamma) and to numerous students who were pursuing graduate degrees in the whole spectrum of engineering and science programs offered at the University. He made a valuable contribution to many departments within the University through this latter activitiy. Professional Interests and Activities: Professor Kerr was active in the American Society of Engineering Education, the Mathematical Association of America and in two honor societies, Sigma Pi Sigma, and Sigma Xi. One of the activities which related to his several interests was the District Science and Engineering Fair sponsored by the University which attracted high school students to our campus and through which he became well acquainted with many teachers in the secondary schools in our area. Professor Kerr was a proud, sincere, and dedicated person who took his work seriously at all times and expected his students to perform well. Hundreds of students can be grateful for the experience of having had him as a teacher. During his many years here he made a lasting change in their lives and earned himself a permanent and honored place among the long line of teachers who have acquitted themselves so well in the service of the University. Professor Kerr had the good fortune to finish out his career here and retire at the mandatory age, leaving several years to enjoy the status of Professor Emeritus during which time he kept up an interest in the University. It is with deep regret that we, his colleagues, note his passing from our midst. He will long be remembered for the strength 'of his character, for his devotion to bis duties, and for his cooperative attitude toward all in the performance of these duties. Resolution: Now, therefore, be it resolved: . That the faculty of the University of Missouri-Rolla hereby expresses sorrow at the loss of Professor Richard H. Kerr for his thirty-five years of dedicated service as a teacher, student advisor, and loyal supporter of the Universit y through the Alumni Association ; That this resolution be made part of the minutes of the Academic Council , Thursday , April 17 , 1980; That copies of this resolution be sent to. his nearest living relative, Mr. Mark Frye.

Honarary Professor of Military Science Robert E. Vansant, partner, project manager and senior staff attorney with Black & Veatch Consulting Engineers, Kansas City, has been named an Honorary Professor of Military Science at the University of Missouri-Rolla. Vansant is also a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, assigned to the 416th Engineer Command, Chicago, Ill., as chief of staff to Maj. Gen. Robert Bay. Presentation of the honor was made at the annual ROTC awards ceremony held recently on the UMR campus. Col. Vansant was the principal speaker at the event. As an undergniduate at UMR, Col. Vansant was a member of UMR's ROTC program. he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army in

1951 at the same time he received his B.S. degree in civil engineering. He served on active duty the following two years in the United States and the Republic of Korea. In 1953 he returned to civilian life joining Black & Veatch but remained active in ·the U.S. Army Reserve. Vansant lectures widely on specification, contract administration and contract law. He has served as a visiting lecturer on engineering law and contracts, specifications and professional responsibility at UMR for the past 10 years. He also has been active in his support of the UMR ROTC program. His son, Thomas Vansant, is currently a junior in civil engineering at UMR and is an ROTC cadet captain.

BILL ATCHLEY, '57, PRESIDENT CLEMSON UNIVERSITY CLEMSON, SOUTH CAROLINA Bill Atchley walked into Littlejohn Coliseum wearing a diuk business suit. Two hours later he walked out, looking perhaps a bit sheepish, but proud to be wearing the resplendent bright gold cap and gown, the presidential ring and chain of office signifying his formal investiture April 18 as Clemson University's ninth president. As a local newspaper said it the next morning, this "former minor league baseball pitcher from Missouri who baled hay and milked cows in the sum· mers as a boy," had ju'St completed an impressive rise through the academic ranks at Missouri-Rolla and West Virginia to become at age 48 the chief executive officer of an important land-grant university. It was a colorful, historic occasion, full of pageantry and symbolic links to the past and future of higher education. Most of the investiture i.tself was based on early 15th century ceremonies painstakingly researched by a history professor on the inauguration committee which put the whole show together. Energy, the theme of a two-day pre· inaugural symposium, was emphasized in Atchley's address and throughout the two-hour ceremony, which was participated in by an impressive roster of regional and national leaders: Sen. Strom Thurmond, representing the U.S. Senate; U.S. Rep. Butler Derrick, representing the House of Representatives; Gov. Dick Riley, representing the State of South Carolina; mid Henry C. Hollingsworth, representing the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. UMR Chancellor Joseph M. Marchello was there to represent Atchley's alma mater.

The Story is History for Jo Barr As

Teaching history was not one of Jo Barr's boyhood ambition¡s. a sjlfdent in Soldan High School, St. Louis, young Jo thought he might be an architect. . '. But this spring, after more than three decades in the .c1assroom, history Pro- . fessor Jo W. Barr retired from the University of Missouri-Rolla with no regrets as to the direction taken by his career. After teaching more than 10,000 students, he still says, "Being in the classroom is just plain fun." The professor who enjoys teaching so much entered the field as a simple matter of earning a living. "I started college in 1932 in the middle of the depression," he recalls. "There was no way a person could make a living as an architect at that time." He majored in history at Washington University, taking a minor in education. He received his B.A. and M.S. degrees there, and was working onhis doctorate at the University of Chicago when be was drafted. He served in the U.S. Army from Oct. 3, 1941 to March 6, 1946. Along the way, he went up through the ranks as a noncommissioned officer to become a first sergeant in the Signal Corps, married Miss Mary Jo Bastian of Neosho, attended 'officer candidate school, and served almost a year in the Philippines, ending the war as a captain and adjutant of the Far Bast Air Force Signal Battalion. In the Army, he also got his first real experience in teaching. He liked it. For two years after his return to civilian life, he taught history at Oklahoma State University, Stillwater. In 1948, he joined the UMR faculty. The rest is UMR history. Through the years, he has almost always taught American Civilization and American Government courses. He likes teaching them because .they encompass the constitutional era. He has enjoyed teaching another course, Recent American History. "It's easy to teach," he says with a smile. "It takes in the period since 1920-it's the history of my life." . In 1955, the history professor became chairman of the UMR Faculty Committee on Catalog and By-Laws. This launched him into another part-time career. For 15 years, as director of publications, he was responsible for publishing not only the catalog, but all other UMR informational publications, such as - brochures, bulletins, and reports. In 1969, he returned to full-time teaching, still "my favorite activity of academic life," he says. UMR students find Barr's teaching a favorite, too. For six consecutive years, he has been voted an outstanding teacher by students and colleagues. He also received the Amoco Foundation Award for Outstanding Teaching. The professor is equally enthusiastic about his students. "UMR students are better than most," he says. . His regard and concern for his students reflect attitudes he learned early in life from his father, a professor of mathematics at Washington University and those of another mentor, the late Curtis L. Wilson who 'headed the UMR campus from 1941 to 1963. "My dad used to say, 'Never lose the student's point of view,' and Dean Wilson often referred to our students as 'our customers,'" Barr recalls. "I've always tried to keep those ideas in mind." Barr has not confined his teaching to the UMR classroom. For more than 13 years he was a Sunday school teacher at the First United Methodist Church. For many years he was on the Board of the Wesley Foundation, serving as chairman and as faculty adviser to the group. He has also taken part in amateur theatricals (he played the male lead in "Sabrina Fair" produced by the Coterie Little Theater Group), led discussion groups, (including the Great Books series at the Rolla Public Library) and he has sung in church choirs for more than 25 years. In his spare time he is an avid gardener, a camera buff (he especially enjoys photographing great works of art), and likes to play popular music on the piano. This fall, Barr will have more time for these activities-and for travel, another favorite activity. This will always include extended trips West to visit the Barr's daughter, K. T. Roes, Cody, Wyo.

Louis Lund Retires This Year "After 32 years of spending mest of my time on study, teaching and research in physics at the University of Missouri-Rolla," says Dr. Louis Lund, professor of physics, "I decided this would be a good time to begin exploring some of my other interests a little more extensively. That's why I decided to take an early retiremen t." When Professor Lund came to UMR in 1948, he was the first theoretical physicist the campus had ever employed (most of the department faculty are classified as experimental physicists). His first graduate student (working under his direction) was the late Richard Kerr, associate professor emeritus of mathematis at UMR, who earned his master's degree in physics in 1950. Another of Dr. Lund's "firsts" is directing the work of the first Ph.D. candidate to earn his degree in theoretical physics at UMR. "That was Russ Cochran (,59, '65) who later became chairman of the physics department at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa," Dr. Lund says. "Many theoretical physicists enter the field of education," he continues, "and I've had some outstanding ones. James Phillips ('66) is chairman of the physics department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and Ralph Tross (,59, '66, '68) holds the same position at the University of Ottawa in Canada. Altogether, I've directed the work of more than 20 graduate students in the past 32 years." Another of his graduate students-who didn't go into the teaching field-was John Glaese (,64, '66, '69) who is now with NASA in Huntsville, Ala. Glliese was one of the scientists who helped direct Skylab's re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere. Lund's interest in physics isn't confined to teaching-although he says he thinks he has taught almost all the graduate and undergraduate lecture courses listed in the catalog at one time or another. His research interests lie in the areas of liquids, X-ray and slow neutron scattering. In addition to directing research of graduate students, he has been principal investigator for several projects in his fields of interest and has collaborated on research programs in UMR's Graduate Center for Cloud Physics Research. In 1969 he was a co-winner of UMR's Outstanding Research Award. He is author or co-author of some 25 published technical articles, is a member of the American Physical Society, Sigma Xi, Research Society of North America, and is included in American Men of -Science. ._ -Dr. Lund is a native of Jefferson City. He earned his B.A. in physics at Kansas Wesleyan in Salina, and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in physics at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Between degrees, he was working for the State Board'of Health in Jefferson City when he met and married his wife, Marian, a native of Rutherford, N.J., and graduate of Gaucher College in Baltimore, Md. She was working as a medical technician at the Board of Health. They have two sons-Dr. Carl Lund, a theoretical physicist working at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories in California, and Dr. Michael Lund, who teaches English literature at longwoOd College in Farmville, Va. "When I started college, I was torn between the study of physics and literature," Professor Lund says. "It's been interesting to watch each of my sons follow th9se separate paths." __ _ _ Other interests he plans to expand include tennis and table tennis ("I can still give Carl and Mike a good game," he says), theater (several years ago he enjoyed directing a local performance of "Come Back Little Sheba"), and certain types of music ("I enjoy the 'big band' sound," he says, "and you know, I think its comingback"). Travel to both coasts to visit his sons is another retirement possibility, as well as a trip to Sweden to see the land of his ancestors. The Lunds, who live at 36 McFarland Drive, also expect more J requent visits from the grandchildren, Meridith, 7Y2, and John, 3Y2 . "There are many interesting subjects to explore outside the world of physics," Dr. Lund says. ''I'm looking forward to trying a few ." MSM Alumnusl1 7
