Missouri Gun Makers .. ..,Target for Gorden Lewis Although some people might consider what he's doing a historical longshot , Dr. Gorden Lewis has taken scholarly aim at reconstructing the lives of some of Missouri's early gun makers. "I began what has become my hobby as a collector of black oowder weaoons that had been made in Missou ri ," Lewis, UMR professor of ceramic engineering, says. "Bu t at the same time) also was interested in the history behind the pieces I had obtained." "My focus has gradually shifted , however," he adds, "so that now I've stopped collecting and devote a great deal of my free time to historical research. " He has concentrated that research on Missouri gun makers who lived and worked during the years 1800 to 1860. ''I'm fascinated by the period of history when people did things for themselves," he ex plains. "Back then a rine was a working tool and gun making was an art. The research that Lewis does is a time-consuming and painstaking endeavor. "W hat I've managed to put together in the 12 years I've been doing this may not look like much," he says, pointing to a stack of fold ers fill ed with documents and other papers, "but it represents hours and hours of work. According to Lewis, Missouri was a key state in the development of American weapons. "It rea!ly hasn't received the credit it deserves," he says. "As settlers passed through the state on their way west, they found that the weapons they had brought with them were unsuited for use in the territory where they were headed . "Conditions were very different on the G reat Plains and in the Rockies from those in the eastern forests," he adds, "and it was in Missouri that weapons began to be modified in order to serve new and different needs." While certain features--the way the barrel is attached to the stock and the manner in which the sights were put on--

seem to go along with Missouri rines, there rea lly isn't a consistent enough pattern to aid in identificat ion , Lewis says. ''I'm reluctant to identify a piece as having been made in Missouri .unless the name of the maker is on it." If a name does appear on the rine, Lewis will check it aga inst a list of the names of 350 Missouri gun makers that he has complied. Once a positive identification is made, he sta rts a file and begins research on the indi vidual. As far as the facts are concerned, Lewis is interested in learning such things as when and where the men he is studying were born and grew up; where they served their apprenticeships; when they moved to Missouri; whom they married ; how many ch ildren they had; whet her they trained anyone else in gun mak ing; and when and where they died and were buried. But he's also seek ing an understanding of his subjects that goes beyond the facts. "You reach a point where yo u feel like you know these people," he says, "and you begin to see that they were real people who li ved and died rather than mere historical abstractions. "Consequently, I'm interested in their personal or everyday lives," he adds. ") want to find out abo ut family relationships and how they did things. What I'm seek ing is some understanding of the qual it y of their lives, and thdl'S something I feel we need to learn more about." Lewis is currently focusing his efforts on the lives of three men , John G. Philips of Columbia, Mosias Maupin of Union and A. Duenkel of Boonv ille, and when he feels he knows them about as well as he can , he wants to write the stories of their li ves. But until that day arrives, there's more research to do and new leads to pursue. ") recently got a letter from a woman in Ok lahoma who thought that her grandfather had made rines in Missouri some time ago," he says. ")t's somebody else to start look ing for." MSM Alumnus / J

UMR is Taking Salt Out of Seawater

Dd It's hundreds of miles to the nearest ocean , but at Rolla , chemical engineers and chem ists are helping turn the tide in the search for an economical method of removing salt from seawa ter. It's part of research being done by Dr. H.K. Yasuda, UMR chemica l engineering professor, on those versat ile man-made materials known as polymers. The project , funded by th e U.S. Department of the Interi or, seeks to develop an ultrathin polymer membrane which will combine effective sa lt removal with durability. Yasuda , w ho heads polymer research at UMR's G raduate Center for Materials Research, has been worki ng on desa lini zat ion for about 15 years . He believes that the process being developed here shows prom ise of making desalinization of water commercially feasib le. He says that the prospect of removing sa lt from water economica ll y is a matter of great importance, not on ly in arid areas such as Israel and Saud i Arab ia which have sa lt water borders but in other areas of the world as wel l. "We are preparing now for the next worldw ide crisis, a shortage of potable-- that is, safe and drinkable--wa ter." Yasuda explains. "W hen that shortage comes, it w ill be more serious than the oil shortage, because you can ' t li ve without water. "The quantity of water is limited. A ll the water we wi ll ever have on earth is already here, and the demand is 2/ MSM Alumnu s

catching up with the supply. In the not-too-distant future, desa lini zation may be a major concern in this country, too ." Yasuda's method of salt removal takes elements of ea rli er desa liniza tion research and puts them together in a new way. At the heart of the process are tiny , hair-like hollow fibers with porous wa lls. Through a special method , a thin polymer layer is deposited on the outside of the fiber. This makes the entire fiber semipermeable and selective, allow ing the water to pass through but not the salt. Seawater under pressure is forced through the walls of the small tube, and the desalted water comes out in droplets from the hollow center of the fiber. "The basic tech nique is reverse osmosis, an es tablished proced ure," Yasuda explains. "The osmosis phenomenon (i n wh ich pure water wou ld naturally now through a mem brane to a salt solu tion) is reversed when pressure is exerted on the sa lt solution. T his has been done for some time using hollow fi bers and polymer membrane in sheet form. "The big prob lem has been durab ility of the membrane, the most expensive part of the desaliniza tion process," Yasuda adds. "The environment has to be ca refully controlled at all times. The membrane's effectiveness can be destroyed by man y things--by chlorine, which must be added to kill microorganisms, and by high temperature and high acid content. Then there are also col loids, subs tan ces

that are suspended in the water and are appa rentl y dissolved but which move slowl y, or not at all , through the membrane and foul it." For about seven years, Yasuda has been working to develop a thin polymer membrane which cou ld stand up to all of these problems--temperatu re, chlorination, acid , mem brane fouling--and sti ll do a good job of removin g sa lt. His solution is to deposit a polymer as a coating on the tin y fibers instead of making the membrane in sheet form . "Our progress has been slow , but steady ," the resea rcher says. "We can now separate out more than 93 percent of the sa lt; our aim is 99 percent. " Two other ach ievements, durabi li ty and reproducibility , are " most satisfactory," according to Yasuda. " On the polymer we have developed here, chlorine, instead of destroy ing effectiveness, sometimes increases the selectivity and act uall y increases the amount of water that comes through," he explains, "and now we can coa t the fibers in a cont inous process and always ha ve them turn out the same, time after time." Membranes are undergoing laboratory tests with seawater to determ ine the opt imum polymer type and membrane thi ckness and see how much and how fast sa lt can be removed. A related project is the development of polymers which

would adsorb colloids when water is pretreated. "As the technology for removing salt from water becomes more advanced , the pre-t reatment of water becomes more importan t," Yasuda expa lins. He and Dr. Stig Friberg, U M R Curators' Professor of chemistry and colloid expert, are tackling the problem of colloid removal in a three-year proj ect funded by the Office of Water Research and Technology, U .S. Department of the Interior. Dr. Yasuda describes th eir progress as "excitin g and promising at this stage." Th ese polymers are sy nthesized throu gh a process know n as plasma or glow discha rge polymeriza tion. In this process, elect ric discharges create a low temperature plasma zone of ioni zed gas, and the fiber or metal to be coated is passed through this zone. The new material deposited on the substrata by th e plasma is ca lled plasma polymer. One of the pioneers in plasma research, Dr. Yasuda has had a career th at spans almost three decades and work on three cont inents-- in Japan, Sweden and the United Sta tes. [n add ition to his desa lini za tion stu dies, he is involved in several studies of materials especiall y suited for use in biomedicine. He is dedicated to the idea that work should have practica l use. "For me," he says, "the best research is fundamental resea rch that is goa l oriented." MSM Alumnus 3

Moss Helps Bring Robots To Their Senses Dr. Randy Moss thinks it's time that robots came in out of the dark, and he's developed a resea rch project that wi ll help them do just that. That project--"Pattern Recognition in CAM (ComputerAided Manufacturing)"--was one of 19 UMR resea rch proposa ls to be funded through the Universit y of Missouri's Weldon Spring Endowment Research Fu nd . "At present, most robots operate, more or less, accord ing to the principle of 'dead reckoning,'" Moss, an assistant professor of electrica l engineeri ng, says. "Because their sensory systems are limited, they receive very little feed back or information about their environment. "As a result ," he continues, "they can't adapt to meet different or changing conditions. They'll continue operating as they were originally programmed, often with cost ly and disastro us results. They're simply not ' intelligent' enough to know any better. According to Moss, one of the major problems that industry faces in this area is the positioni ng of parts on a conveyor belt in such a way that robots will be able to recogn ize them and pick them up. "For a robot to select a part from a moving conveyor, it (the part) must be in a position that the robot has been programmed to recognize," he says. "If it isn't, the robot won't be able to perform its job." What Moss proposes to do is to make robots intelligent enough to recognize a part on a conveyor belt regardless of its position and orientation through the addition of a computer vision system . That vision system, Moss explains, wi ll consist mainly of 4 / MSM A lumnus

a television camera and monitor, a video digitizer and a computer. The digitizer will work in " real time," meaning that it wi ll take 1130 of a second for an image to be digitized, show on the monitor screen and then stored in the digitizer's memory. "The system will be able to extract a number of feat ures fF0m an object," he adds. "These include such things as mass, perimeter, area and the presence and location of holes, as well as which stable surface is down and the object's rota tional orientation. " In addition , Moss wi ll try to determ ine which portions of his project ca n best be accomplished through hardware (design of the machine itself) or software (computer programmi ng). "There's usually some trade-off between the two areas," Moss says, "and there are advantages and disadvantages in both approaches. Where one approach may offer the advantage of speed, the other may offer greater flexibilit y. I want to in vestigate which processes should be implemented in each area." The development of totally integra ted CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) systems, Moss believes, will allow robots to become even more intelligent. "W ith th is type of system, a complete descri ption of the part will be stored in the computer memory," he says. "The robot will be interfaced with that computer and will have access to all of that design information. Because it will know just about every thing there is to know about the part, pattern recognition wi ll be easier and more accurate."

The way the wind blows .... Underground It can be complicated and expensive to safely ventilate mine tunnels that stretch for miles underground. "The basic objective of mine ventilation is to maintain a safe and healthy environment in the parts of a mine where men are required to travel and work," says Dr. A.D. Stewert Gillies, assistant professor of mining engineering at

the University of Missouri-Rolla. "And the most important place to create the safe environment is usually the farthest point from the entrance, where men and machines are cutting material from the mine face. "Control of air currents isn't all that difficult ," says Dr. Gill ies. "And many studies ha ve already been done by the mining companies, the government and other researchers to develop the best possible ventilation procedures. However, changes in contours, work methods and even machinery can deflect a current and alter its effectiveness in a given area. That's where the research we can do in UM R's ventilation laboratory comes into the picture." Through the use of a huge model of an underground mine and sophisticated equipment, mining engineering students and faculty at UMR are now able to stud y improvements of mine ventilation problems. Donated to UMR by Peabody Coal Co. in 1975 , UMR's model is a mock-up of the tunnels of a mine, covered with see-through plastic instead of rock. It covers 1,500 square feet of space. The plastic can be lifted in order to install equipment and structures to simulate actua l mine conditions. Blowers designed to pump air through the model are a part of the total system. Supported by a grant from Peabody , UM R st udents have constructed equipment, placed it in an area of the model that would simulate the typical mine face and added the required ventilation equipment (tubing and brattice curtain). Directed by Dr. Gillies, they introduce gray smoke (for air) and orange smoke (simulating impurities), manipulate the two in a variety of possible configurations with the fans, and study the actions. "We think we have come up wit h an improved understanding of an ventilation system for various situations," Dr. Gill ies says. Dr. Gillies and his colleagues and students have completed an earlier ventilation project on " Passive Air Conditioning: Air Tempering in Flow Through Rock Lined Tunnels." They have been awarded a grant by the University of Missouri to study a proj ect enti tled "Earth-Tubes for Air Flow Condi tioning" and are planning to study the formation of fog that happens, sometimes, in underground mines.

Air In Your Home May Be Hazardous To Your Health Air pollution inside your home may be worse than the law allows for th e ai r outside. A nd , if, that's not bad enough , th e " improvements" you make to save energy may make it even worse. That's th e con sensus of recent reports of several groups concern ed with indoor air qua li ty. It's also th e problem bein g tackled by researchers at UMR. A yea r-long stud y directed by Dr. Purush TerKonda , associate professor of ci vi l engineerin g, w ill in vest iga te how major indoo r pollutants are affected by energy-sav ing measures. Alth ough technical data on indoo r ai r pollution is not exten sive, en ough is known to ca use co ncern about possible hea lth hazard s, T erKonda says. "Because many people--probably most people--spend most of their time indoors, their health may be affected more by the indoo r pollutants than by those in the outdoor environment," he explains. "Federal standards already have been set for ambient air--that is, outdoor air--qua lity and for the working invironment. Now there is a push for Congress to extend federal standards to cover indoor air qua lity ." The UMR study is an "exposure assessment" w hich will ch eck for th e leve l, distribution , frequ ency and duration of different co ntaminants. Samples w ill be take n in residential , comm ercial and institu tional bu ildings during all fo ur season s to get a before-and-after picture of wha t happens wh en a buildin g is " buttoned up" in co ld weather.

taminants found in the average home: carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, fo rm aldeh ydes, respirab le pa rti culates, ca rcinogens and rad ioacti ve radon gas. TerKonda says that th ese pollu tants can bring a var iety of hea lth prob lems to th e unsuspec tin g indi vidual exposed to th em . "Most l y we are talking about irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lun gs. In addition , th ere ma y be serio us longterm effects. Radon gas is a cause of lu ng ca ncer, and , acco rdi ng to the National Insitute of Occupationa l Safety and H ea lth , even small co ncentrat ions of carbon monoxide may have an effec t on the hea rt ," he adds. Test w ill focu s especiall y on pollution caused by indoor combustion sys tems. According to TerKonda , these systems, along w ith tobacco smoke, are the worse potent ial po lluters of indoor air. "Most problems co me from gas cooking ranges wit h open names, coa l and wood stoves, and poorl y mainta ined furnaces. Coa l and wood stoves which are being used for heat to save energy are potential sources of such healt h hazards as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and ca rcinogens if th ey are not vented properly.

All of these contami nants may rise to hazardo us levels when houses are weatherized to cut back on energy loss. "In adding storm windows, weather stripping, insu lation and so forth , we usually don't realize that what we are doing is reducing the ventilation rate in terms of the number of ai r exchanges in the building. An old bui ldi ng will normally have between .8 to 2.0 air changes per hour. Once the bui lding is insulated, the rate will go down to just onefo urt h of that, trapping pollutants indoors," he points out. TerKonda hopes that his resea rch, funded by a grant

from the Weldo n Spring Endowment Fund, will serve as a pilot project to prov ide baseline data for more ex tensive research. "At presen t we can on ly generali ze; we just don't know enough to come to grips with the problem ," he says. "But we must consider the cumulative effect of pollutants on the ind ividua l and how much the concentration of pollutants is increased when a bu ilding is tightened up to prevent heat loss. Proper ventillation is the key to reducing pollution to safe levels, and we need to know more than that. As much as we need to save energy , we can't afford to trade off the long-term comfort , hea lth and safety of the individual when we reduce energy consumpt ion ," he concludes.

UMR Music Honorary Tau Beta Sigma Wins National Award The UMR chapter of Tau Beta Sigma has been awarded the honorary band organization's highest national award for chapter leadership. The award was presented at the group's biennial national convention held in Cincinnati, Ohio, in August. Tau Beta Sigma is an honorary for women band members. It is made up of 166 chapters from colleges and universities throughout the country and has about 6,000 members. UMR's chapter was honored for its support of the campus band program; the participation of its members in UMR's four music continuing education func· tions each year (occasions such as junior high band clinic and high school music festival); the chapter's assistance in the growth of Tau Beta Sigma (colonization at other colleges); and the promptness and accuracy of necessary paper work. Students Susan Turner, '79-'80, and Kim Denney, '80-'81 , presided over the UMR chapter (about 20 members) during the period for which the award was given. Tom Ruess, lecturer in music and director of the "Marching Miner" Band and the UMR Jazz Ensembles, is faculty adviser for the group.

UMR Student Warms Up To Summer in Iceland Mac Daily Jr. wanted to do somet hing a little different on his summer vacation this year, so he spent three months working in Iceland. ''I'd heard a little bit about Iceland's being different ," Daily, a senior in mechanical engineering at the University Missouri-Rolla, says. "It seemed like a nice place to go for a couple of months. "Besides," he adds, ''I'd worked in the New Mexican desert the summer before last and Iceland seemed to be about as far away from that as you can get." Daily who did design work on engine components for fishing trawlers for an engineering firm in Akureyri , arranged for his job through the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience. "You can choose to work just about anywhere in the world--Asia , Africa, Europe or Latin America ," he says, "the association wi ll help yo u find a job and then with the paper work that is req uired ," Once in Iceland , Daily found the count ry to be different than he'd imagined it would be. "Because of the Gu lf Stream, the climate is more moderate than you'd think ," he says. "It was between 50 and 60 degrees (fahrenheit) wh ile I was there and I was told that it was the coolest summer they'd had in several years. The winters also are milder than the name Iceland wo uld indicate." The lack of trees in the country also took some getting used to on his part. "It's said that the Vikings cut down most of the trees to build ships and houses," he says, "and what the Vikings didn't get, the sheep and climatic changes took care of. Work , however, is being done to bring the forests back." He also found that he had to get used to a new diet. "I ate quite a bit of whale," he says. "It's similar to roast beef but it has a stronger smell and taste. " But perhaps the two most memorable events during his stay in Iceland were piloting a plane to the Isle of Grimsey

That wi ll be the challenge that awa its the Universit y of Missou ri -Rolla foot ball team w hen the Missouri Inter'co llegiate Ath letic Associtation season gets underway in October. U M R posted a perfect 6-0 conference record a year ago en route to a perfect 10-0 season mark , but compe titi on wi ll be stiff this season if th ey are to repea t. T he Miners en ter MIAA action with a 2-2 record , after victories of 3 1-13 over William Penn and 14-3 over Eva ngel College, coup led with losses of 3 1-10 against Missouri Valley and 28 -12 against Pittsburg Sta te. 10/ MSM Alumnus

The loss to Missouri Valley broke a 14-ga me Miner winning streak which was longest in th e nation among Divi sion 11 tea ms. " We kn ew it couldn' t go on forever ," UM R head coach Charli e Finley sa id after the ga me. "Now we need to get some people hea lth y and get back on the ri ght tra ck." Gettin g some key peop le hea lth y has been a problem so far in 198 1, as injuries have battered UM R's offensive line. Ed Stucky and Jeff H affner suffered broken toes, while startin g center Jim Lloyd went down in U MR 's third ga me of the season with a knee injury.

It 100 in the C Playil some f What will the Miners ha ve to do to be in th e thick of the MIAA chase?" " When we play with the proper intensit y, we are ca pable of playing with anyone," Finley sa id . " Injuries have hurt us, but we will have to overcome the prob lems and play well as a unit. " Through the first four games of the season, sophomore running back Randy Shed leads al l ru shers wit h a 50.8 yards a game average. The Kirkwood , Mo. native also leads the team in kick-off returns (29.7 per return) and has three touchdown s. Dennis Pirkle aga in is handling th e bulk of th e quarterback duty thi s season, and has connected on 23 of 53 att empts. Three passes have been intercep ted, but the Oak Lawn , 111. nati ve is second in the conference in ya rdage per game, with an 88.0 average. Rand y H auser leads the team in punt ret urns (14.5 per return), is second in interceptions (three) and is one of UMR's best defensive performers. The Co tt age Hill, 111. junior is the dean of th e miner defensive seco ndary thi s season. M arshIfi eld, Mo. nati ve Craig Thomas is seccond on the team is scorin g with two fi eld goa ls and a perfect seven out of seven point-after attempts, and leads th e team in intercept ions with fo ur in four games. In four weeks of act ion , the Miners have ga rn ered tw o Player-of-t he-Week winners in th e MIAA. Shed won for his 94 ya rds rushing aga inst Missouri Vall ey , and N evada , Mo. junior Doug K eithl y cap tured the defensive award after making 16 tack les against Evangel "The conference season is always a rea l challenge, and we hope to get off to a good start ," Finley said. " W e are going to get back to good , old hard-nosed foot ball and see if we ca n't strai ghten some thin gs ou t."

It looks like soccer has found a home in the Ozarks. Playing in a new facility and boasting some fine talent, the University of Missouri-Rolla soccer team is becoming a hot item around town. After · opening the season Sept. 5 before an overflow home crowd, the Miners rewarded the throng with a 2- 1 victory over highly-rated Washington University. "It was an amazing way to start the season," coach Paul McNally said afterwards. "The crowd really helped us out." UMR kept the winning ways in line during the next two games, recording a win over Harris-Stowe and a 4-1 win over Southwest Missouri. The Miners' first loss of the season came Sept. IS, when they fell 3-1 at Missouri Southern. They took their fine 3-1 record into the game of the year, hosting University of Missouri-St. Louis Sept. 19. The Rivermen , always a national power, were ranked second in the United States at the time. UMR fell to the Rivermen 2-1, despite out-shooting them 9-3 on goal. The highly-touted squad had no shots on goal during the second half. "We really out-played them during the second half," McNally said. "That game showed me that we can stay with anyone when we are playing up to our capabilities." Following this clash, the Miners split a pair of games in Omaha, Nebraska, falling 2-1 to Creighton and defeating Metropolitan State 3-2. After seven games, the top scorer for UMR is senior forward Pat Becker. The Florrisant, Mo. native has seven goals and has been one of the team leaders. "This is our first real year of recruiting, and I think we are still about a year away from being an excellent soccer team ," McNally said. "We are very happy with some of the players we recruited a year ago, and they are really adding a lot to the program."

In China

There's a new title these days for Franklin Y. Cheng, UMR professor of civil engineering. He's an official honorary professor of Harbin Civil Engineering institute in the People's Republic of China. Cheng received his second professorship in a special ceremony at the end of a five-week stint at the Chinese institute where he lectured on optimum design in earthquake structural engineering and was a major participant in a national conference. " I felt especially honored because there are only six or eight professors at that university with a faculty of 560," he reports. The Chinese government invited Cheng to lecture and visit research facilities as part of a cooperative program for joint research development between the U .S.A. and C hina. The trip was funded by the National Science Foundation (which has supported much of Dr. C heng's research in earththquake engineering) , the C hinese government, and a grant from the Un iversity of Missouri 's Weldon Spring Endownment Research Fund. During his eight·week tour, Dr. Cheng lectured at several educational institutions. The three·day lecture at Peking had nearly 400 participants from every province of China. His major lecture series was at Harbin, where about 100 leading researchers, were sent from various universities and institutes to attend the session. Immediately following that was a week-long national conference on structural optimization which had been organized to coincide with this visit. "They asked me to direct them and discuss their research results," Cheng reports. "But I found I learned a lot from them , too."

In general he found thei r ea r thquake engineering resea rch " impressive" and the facilities and manpower "ver y good" at the large nationa l centers he visited. Although Cheng has not been back to his homeland for more than 30 years, when the Chinese asked him to lectu re in C hinese, he found he had li ttle difficulty with the language . " When I got into trouble with technical terms, there were professors there who had been educated in th is country who cou ld help me," he says. Cheng was accompained by his wife, their son, Gerorge, 15 , and da ughter, Deborah , 10, who had a special program arra nged for them . "They sawa ll sorts of museums and had lessons in Chinese painting and musica l inst ruments," Cheng says. " But best of all so far as the young people were concerned, they were given pingpong lessons by the coach who refereed the national fina l compet ition." It wasn't "all work and no play" for the professor. H is tour allowed time for sightseeing, and he also visited relatives he hadn' t seen since his fami ly left ma inland Chi na during the revolution. The UMR professor came back with respect fo r the work of the Chinese researchers and ideas fo r cooperat ion. "They have some very ambitious projects," Cheng says, citing an elaborate 12-story model built for testing. " Where they have asked me to help is in the areas of theoretical studies and computation work. " He belives that a start has been made on developing cooperation between the two countries on eart hquake engineering research. MSM A lumnus / 13
