~-~ Class of 1932, 50-Year Anniversary Reunion A record number (32) alumni and their wives and families returned to campus May 15-16 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation. Festivities began Friday evening with a buffet at the Chancellor's Residence, hosted by Joseph and Louise Marchello. On Saturday morning, two bus loads of the honorees were given a short tour of Rolla to see which familiar haunts of their school days were still intact and what changes had taken place during the years. Lunch on Saturday was held at the Pub Mobile and was followed by a look at the exhibit of restored antique cars, a Rolla tourist attraction on the premises. Interested alumni

spent some time on the campus Saturday afternoon. That night the Golden Alumni Banquet took place in the University Center. Sunday morning began with a brunch at Zeno's Motel where most of the honored guests were housed. Highlight of the weekend was participation in the I09th Annual Commencement where the 50-year group donned caps and gowns, marched in the academic procession and were honored during the ceremonies. Throughout the weekend, informal gatherings were held at "Club 32," the group's own suitably furhished room at Zeno's.

Thomas Jefferson Award To UMR's Douglas Wixson Although Thomas Jefferson himself wasn't present, his spirit was greatly in evidence when UMR's Dr. Douglas C. Wixson was formally presented the University of Missouri's Thomas Jefferson Award for 1982. UM President James C. Olson presented the award in May to Dr. Wixson, a UMR associate professor of English. The award, which is funded through a grant from the Robert Earll McConnell Foundation, consists of a citation and a monetary award. The award is presented annually to that "member of the University of Missouri community, active or emeritus, associated with one of the four campuses, who 'through personal influence and performance of duty in teaching, writing and scholarship; character and influence; devotion and loyalty to the University best exemplifies the principles and ideals of Thomas Jefferson.' " "Being chosen to receive this award is a great honor for me," said Wixson, who is the first member of the UMR community to be so honored. "It's a tremendous compli¡ ment to be compared favorably with a man such as Thomas Jefferson. Such recognition also carries with it a responsibil-¡ ity to be aware of and live up to the example that Jefferson has set for us." Wixson's education embodies the breadth of experience that Jefferson thought most useful and beneficial. Wixson received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1955; an M.S. in 8/ MSM Alumnus

Wixson mechanical and aerospace engineering from Stanford University in 1960; and a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of North Carolina in 1971. In addition, he has studied at the Universitat Gottingen, West Germany; the Universite de Poitiers, France; and the Universidad de Navarra, Spain. This education has led to his participation in diverse projects. He has been a member of an engineering research team working on the development of a supersonic transport aircraft, has done research on drama at the Institut fur Theaterwissenschaft in Cologne, has researched Shakespeare at the Folger Library, has studied and written about German church architecture in central Missouri and has published translations in quantum theory. "To be most effective, education must be directed at the whole person," Wixson said. "That means it must be a blend of the sciences, technology and the humanities. We must address ourselves to the cohesion of human experience rather than its differences." To this end, Wixson has developed a course at UMR to help teach engineers and humanists about the perspective that they share. The course, which is titled "The Engineer As Writer," features readings in classical (Vitruvius and Frontinus) and medieval (Abbot Suger) texts, as well as books about Renaissance (da Vinci) and Victorian (Eads) men and experiences. Wixson's teaching experience, both here and abroad, has

ranged from mathematics to American studies and technical writing to the works of James Joyce and Samual Beckett. In addition to UMR where he has been a member of the faculty since 1976, he has served on the faculties of the University of North Carolina; Universite de Savoie, France; Universite de St. Etienne, France, where he was a Fulbright professor; University of Colorado; and Institut Montana, Switzerland. As a teacher, Wixson seeks to impart an attitude of scholastic self-reliance in his students. "As far as my students are concerned," he said, "my most important jobs are to teach them how to learn and to enjoy learning. In ti ..;<;, I see my role as being that of a guide. "I'm there to help my students get started on what should be a life-long acquaintance with learning," he added, "and to help them discover where to go and whom to consult to learn the things they want to know." For Wixson himself learning has been a life-long pursuit, and his quest has taken him both here and abroad and to people as well as books. "One goes where one must in order to learn from those who know it best," he explained. In particular his quest for knowledge has led him to the Moberly home of Missouri writer Jack Conroy. "I've

learned more from visiting with Jack Conroy than from all the hours I have spent as a student in classrooms," he said. "Yet I needed to spend those hours in classrooms as preparation--Conroy puts everything I have learned on the line . "He is both an example of knowledge and a living library--knowledge is a living thing and the payoff may be observed in a man's own life," he added. With the help of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Wixson will spend the next academic year completing a book about his friend and teacher, Conroy, and other radical writers of the 1930's. Wixson's concern for education and the individual student also has taken him beyond the University. As a member of the National Humanities Faculty, he has served as a consultant to high schools that are having difficulty retaining students. He has helped these schools develop alternative curricula that will interest students sufficiently to persuade them to stay in school and still allow them to acquire a complete and functional education. Non-academic interests, however, also occupy a good portion of his time. A banjo picker, Wixson has made programs of traditional Ozark music available to numerous groups in the Rolla area.

Dr. T Nursing students doing their clinical work in community health nursing at the Phelps County Health Department get an overview of the department's work . From left to right are Tricia Haston and Arline Wade of Rolla, and Ron Barnes, administrator, Phelps Coun ty Health Department.

N ursing Students Do Public Health Training in Rolla There's a special in terest in community health for two students in the Uni versity of Missouri-Columbia and University of M issouri-Rolla (UMC-UMR) Cooperative Nursing Program. T he two, Arline Wade and Tricia Haston, both of Rolla, did their clinical work in community health nursing this pas t semester at the Phelps County Health Department. T hey are the first nursing students in the UMC-UMR program to take part of their clinical training in Rolla. In the program, which bega n in 1978, students take their first two years on the Rolla campus and complete the course work at Columbia, with the possibility of returning to this area for some of their clinical training. Donna Bond, UMC nursing instructor, is field project manager of the cooperative nursing program. Says Bond, "We're delighted that two of our cooperative nursing students cou ld receive this learning opportunity. It fits our program's foc us--to provide closer-to-home experiences for South Centra l M issourians who seek professional nursing education." l O/ MSM Alumnu s

At the Phelps County Health Department, the students got a taste of what it means to be a public health nurse. Ron Barnes, administrator of the department, says that he and the nurses who work with the students involved them in as many activities as possible_ " We tried to help them get a view of community hea lth; we wanted it to be a positive experience. On the other hand , there were benefits for the department, too. Arline and Tricia helped with clinics, did some home visits which freed our staff for other duties. I can see having nursing students here as a real potential for the future in promoting community health nursing and also in promoting nursing in this area. When student nurses can get some of their trai ning locally, it tends to bring them back to practice after they graduate." The students' two-day assignment to Phelps County Health Department included spending a day each week at Mark Twain School. There they observed health education in the classroom, assisted in scoliosis screening and in hearing and vision tests, and did immunizations as needed. At

the health department they assisted in health clinics and in other activities such as working with women, infants and children who had been referred by doctors because of nutritional deficiencies, In addition, they each had two patients for home visits. Both feel that they learned a lot about public health and found it a challenge. "One of the reasons I like the baccalaureate program is because it includes community health, which I think is very important," said Arline. "It's different from a hospitaL In community health, the focus is on treating the whole family, not just the patient. I've found that a lot of the work is educational and supportive in nature." Arline and Tricia expecially liked working in their hometown. "One of the requirements for the course is making a survey of community health resources. It's really different looking at your hometown from a public angle, but it's easier because you know the community and know your way around," Tricia said. For Arline, the biggest plus in working in Rolla was being at home an extra two days each week. She and her husband, Clyde, a UMR faculty member, still have three

Dr. Tomlinson Fort, Jr., University of Missouri-Rolla provost, has been appointed vice president for academic affairs of the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Calif. The appointment is effective Sept. I, UMR Chancellor Joseph M. Marchello said, "I appreciate Dr. Fort's service to UM-Rolla over the past two years and I wish him continued success in the new position in California. Cal Poly has an enrollment of over 15,000 and offers a wide variety of academic programs. It will be an exciting challenge for Dr. Fort and one I'm sure he can well meet. He is certainly qualified and will do an outstanding job at Cal Poly as chief academic officer." Before proceeding to seek a replacement for Fort, Chancellor Marchello will review the academic services area of the campus during the next few weeks. Fort was appointed provost and professor of chemistry and chemical engineering at UMR beginning with the 1980 fall semester. He came to UM-Rolla from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pa., where he was professor and head of the department of chemical engineering, He holds a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Georgia and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physical chemistry from the University of Tennessee and completed postdoctoral work at the University of Sydney, Australia. He also holds a diploma from the Institute for Educational Management at Harvard University. His research interests are surface phenomena and/or adsorption, and he has published more than 60 technical papers in these areas.

school-age children at home. She said that the UMC-UMR program was the "only way" she could fulfill a longtime dream of being a professional nurse. "I was able to take two years and a summer at UMR, and this was my third semester at Columbia , With a lot of help and support from my family, I'm on my way to a new career," she said. Both Tricia and Arline will receive their bachelor of science in nursing degrees from UMC next December in the first group to complete the UMC-UMR program. Both hope to be back in Rolla for clinical training during their final semester next fall. Neither has decided what direction her nursing career will take. The two also took clinical work in mental health nursing during the semester in their three days a week on the Columbia campus. The problem with choosing a speciality, said Tricia, is that she likes everything she takes. Arline wants to look at all types of nursing before she makes up her mind. Whatever their specialities, the two Rolla women agree that doing clinical work in Rolla has given them a new perspective on the prospect of coming back here for their professional practice.

The meeting was held March 17 at the EI Crab Catcher restaurant in La Jolla. Highlights of the evening included a description of student life in Rolla dur-

Tulsa Section The Tulsa Section spring party was held May I, at Utica Club 21 , and the room was overflowing. George Leck, as usual, was the most popular man before dinner, for he held the ' ticket roll. A bountiful board was set and the chef outdid himself: Fritschen, apparently out of chicken stories, allowed Dave Kick to preside. Out-of-towners were especially recognized and welcomed. The program was given by Frank Mackaman in the absence of a respected, big name draw.

He was questioned closely after his remarks. On display were the drawings of the proposed Mineral Engineering Building, the Engineering Management Building and the Alumni-MusicAuditorium facility. All of these projects have been approved and await action from the General Assembly of the State of Missouri. Present were: Dave and Gayle Kick; George and Barbara Leck; Faye and Ernie Moran; Herman and Arlene

Fritschen; Hans and Jimmie Schmoldt; Ernie and Molli Achterberg; Joe and Sue Cowen; Robert Olson; Bob and Haroldine Hinds; Fred and Mary Lou Scharf; Ed and Susan Schmidt; Bill and Ann Vark; Vern and Betty McGhee; Pat and Keith Bailey; Bob and B.1.

St. Louis Section The St. Louis Section of the MSM-

UMR Alumni Association once again has a full schedule of events planned for the year. The 14th Annual Golf Tournament and Spring Stag leads off the schedule, both popular events being set for Saturday, June 26 . This year's events are being held at the Lockmoor/Paradise Valley Country Club. Members are reminded that they don't need a foursome to play, that they can bring friends, handicaps are figured using the Blind Bogey System and that tee-off times

will be assigned in order of reservations. Trophies will be awarded for low gross, 1st and 2nd low net. The fifth annual summer baseball game is set for July 17 this year. As many members as possible are asked to come out and cheer the Cardinals to victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Reserved seats cost $5.50 each and guests are invited. Members are reminded that Homecoming 1982 is scheduled for October 1 and 2. The St. Louis Section is always a strong supporter of this annual

event and an even better turn out is expected this year. Other fall events are still in the planning stage and will be announced when they are completed. Howard Stine, president, Bob Bruce, treasurer, and Roy Van Hee, secretary, are all pleased to note that the section operated in the black last year and that no increase is being made in the $5 minimum contribution for this year's dues. A total of 130 members belonged to the St. Louis Section last year.

Dinsdale Named to All-American Golf Squad UMR's Kent Dinsdale has been narned to the 1982 NCAA Division II Honorable Mention All-American Golf Team . The UMR sophomore was named to the elite squad after finishing 36th out of 80 participants in this spring's NCAA Division II National Tournament in Lakeland, Fla. Dinsdale fired rounds of 76-79-72-77 for a four-day total of 304. Vic Wilk of California State-Northridge captured medalist honors with an evenpar 288.

Dinsdale finished 66th in the nationals last year. "This was an excellent showing for him," said head coach Bud Mercier. "His 72 on the third day was even par and tied him with the eventual winner for the second-best score of the day. "To be named to the All-American team when you are only a sophomore is quite an honor. More than 15,600 golfers are in Division II, and only 38 of them made All-American. He was a

class player who came through in a pressure-filled tournament." Dinsdale bested all area competitors, as Central Missouri's Dean Barrie was the closest Missouri golfer with a 306. Russ Oldham of Southwest Missouri finished at 310, with MIAA three-time medalist Jim Clevenger right behind at 311. Barrie also gained All-American honors. Dinsdale is also a member of the UMR basketball team.

Miner Swimmers Get Boost UMR swimming coach Bob Pease recently announced the signing of five swimmers for the Miner varsity program . Pease feels these incoming freshmen will help bolster a talented Miner squad that had seven swimmers earn AllAmerican honors last season. The new Miners are: Sam Millikin, Peters Township High School, McMurray, Pa.--"Sam is national caliber in the 50 freestyle, as his best time is already faster than the current UMR varsity record. He was also a very talented prep performer in the 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke," Pease said.

Derek Coon, Carmel High School, Carlrnel, Ind.--"Derek is the fastest breaststroker we have ever recruited. He is a Junior National Qualifier and was captain of his high school's team. His times in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes are virtually identical to our own varsity records, and I look for him to be a twoevent All-American as a freshman." Woodson Smith, Scottsboro High School, Scottsboro, Ala.--"Woodson is the fastest 100 freestyle man we have ever recruited. I also look for him to make national cuts in the 200 and 500 freestyle races. He also is a Junior National Qualifier." Blake Rowe, Belleville High School,

Belleville, Ill.--"Blake has already broken national cuts in the 200 breaststroke and is only I 0 seconds off national cuts in 1650 freestyle. I look for him to be a multiple All-American as a freshman . He is a Junior National Qualifier." Paul Pericich, Mehlville High School, Mehlville, Mo.--"He is the brother of current UMR varsity swimmer Joe Pericich. Paul has already made national cuts in the 100 backstroke and is less than a second away from the cutoff time for the 200 individual medley. He was a Junior National Qualifier, and I look for him to be a multiple All-American as a freshman. "

Basketball Miners Recruit Four Freshmen--Two Transfers The University of Missouri-Rolla basketball team has finished the bulk of its recruiting chores with the addition of six new players for the 1982-83 cam· paign . The group is headed by three St. Louis area prepsters who should give the Miners a young nucleus to build on, according to Miner head coach Billy Key. Madison (Ill.) High School's Mark Zarr, a 6-6, 200 pounder, who played on one of Illinois' top prep programs, averaged 12.6 points and 9.6 rebounds a game. Parkway West High School's Kris Stange, a 6-7,180 pounder, averaged 16 points and II rebounds last year while leading his team to the finals of the 4A regional tournament. Rounding out the trio is Lutheran

South High School's Dave Moellenhoff, a 6-6, 195 pounder who averaged 15 points and 12 rebounds last season. He was a member of the St. Louis GlobeDemocrat's small school all-metro team . UMR also signed a fourth freshman late in April, as Centralia (111.) High School's John Collins announced his intentions to attend the university . The 6-5 forward averaged nine points and II rebounds on one of the best high school teams in Illinois. The Miners added two junior college transfers to their roster, signing Stan Shuemaker out of Paducah Community College and John Pfankuch from Penn Valley Junior College. Shuemaker, a 6-0 guard who averaged 12.9 points and 7.3 assists per game in 1981-82, led Paducah to a 20-10 record.

He will bolster the squad at point guard, left vacant by the graduation of flashy play-maker Leonardo Lucas. Pfankuch averaged 12 points and eight rebounds last season, and paced the Great Kansas City JUCO Con· ference in free throws attempted. "I think we have really helped ourselves in some areas that are crucial to our program," Key said . "Zarr, Stange and Moellenhoff come from very respected programs in the St. Louis area, and Collins played for an always-tough Centralia squad. "Shuemaker looks like a leader to us at guard, and Pfankuch is a tough, physical kid who will playa role on our team." The Miners return starters Zol Singleton, Rickie Cannon and Curtis Gibson from last year's squad . MSM Alumnus / IS

UMR's Mini-Baja Car Places 8 in 28 A two-wheel drive desert-type vehicle, designed and built by a team of five UMR mechanical engineering students, placed eighth in a field of 28 similar vehicles entered in the annual Mini Baja competition held recently in Lubbock , Texas. Teams from 23 universities across the country put their own cars through the paces of five separate competitions to measure such qualities as endurance (four hours over a rough two-mile course), drag race (acceleration), tire pull (pulling weights from 600 pounds up), maneuverability and static judging (mechanical design, consumer appeal and cost evaluation). The design and construction of a Mini Baja vehicle is an annual semester-long project in UMR's Mechanical Engineering 261 (Analysis and Synthesis in Engineering Design) class. Dr. David Ardayfio, UMR assistant professor of mechanical engineering, was the faculty adviser for the project and accompanied the team to the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock . Members of the UMR team, all seniors in mechanical engineering, were: John Hodgson, Washington; Greg Pannone, Bradley, S.c.; Dave Stockdale, Des Peres; Harry Syers, High Ridge; and Del Winn, Manchester.

Kappa Mu Epsilon Winners Denise Rost, sophomore in mathematics from Chamois, and Trent Eggleston, junior in mathematics from Memphis, Mo., won first and second place, respectively, in the paper presentation competition at the Kappa Mu Epsilon (mathematics honor society) Region IV Convention held recently at Kearney State College in Kearney, Neb. The title of Rost's paper was "Mathematics' Role in Telepathy--The Ouija Board Curve," while Eggleston's paper dealt with the "Consequences of Rolle's Theorem." Region IV of Kappa Mu Epsilon includes colleges and universities from Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Ka nsas, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin . 16/ MSM Alumnus

Missouri Academy of Science Awards UMR students took first place in the behavorial science paper competition of the Missouri Academy of Science's collegiate division for the third consecutive year and brought home the traveling trophy permanently. Kathryn A. Bushur and Charles H. Lipscomb co-authored the winning paper, "Contextual Association in Conditioned Fear Responses in Rats" which was presented at the academy's recent annual meeting. Kathryn, Raytown, expects to receive two degrees, a B.S. in psychology and a B.A. in English, in May 1983. Charles, Springfield, is a junior with a major in economics and a minor in psychology. The paper was based on undergraduate re~;earch done under the direction of Dr. Nancy Marlin, UMR assis-

tant professor of psychology. Dr. Marlin also supervised the research for the previous two winning papers presented in 1980 and 1981 by Theresa Cunningham, Rolla, who received her B.A. degree in psychology in December. Kathryn and Theresa both have participated in the psychology honors program. Two electrical engineering students received awards in the mathematics, physics and engineering division. Steven Watkins, Salem, received a second-place award for his paper, "Feasibility of a Fiber Optic Magnetic Field Sensor Using Intensity Modulation." Bruce McCoy, Chillicothe, won third on his paper, "Thermal Decomposition Studies of Iodine Doped Polyacetylene."

Old Norwood Hall She still stands, my favorite landmark, Recognizable as is a State Park. Norwood Hall with her polished wood floors, Had treasure stored behind all her doors. There were displays of Nature's creations; Basalts, gems, and rock formations. The lecture hall with seats to the ceiling, Was a theater. I had that feeling. Whether Mesozoic or Pleistocene, Each was dissected and shown on a screen. Here is where we learned about 'ology', Excepting zoo, bio, and psych-ology. Rock courses were made easy to take, By Doctors Grawe, Muilenburg, and Dake. She is old, stately, covered with vine, Some grads may even deem her a shrine. To me, she was more like a library, Offering lore of Physical History. Earth was created with a Master Plan, Stockpiled for the needs of Future Man. The entire past is exposed to view, For the benefit of all, Me and You. The labs in the basement come to mind, The crystals, and minerals of every kind, Gave me pleasure in many a way, As I think about them today. I love Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, I remember and love OLD NOR WOOD HALL! Sam A. Bermi, '34 Jan . '82 Sam Bermi, Class of '34, died of a heart attack March 10. Sam was born in Poland and came to this country after having been a refugee during World War I. He attended Soldan High School School in St. Louis, and after a year at Washington University, came to MSM. He earned his degree in mining engineer-

ing (metal option) , but the latter portion of his career was in the insurance field. Sam's hobby was writing poetry (one of his poems about Homecoming was published in the Homecoming issue of Alumnus in 1979). He had developed a lively correspondence about his poetry with Chancellor Joseph M. Marchello,

and a collection of his works is now housed in UMR's Wilson Library. The Alumnus had commissioned Sam to provide a special collection of his poems for his 50th year reunion . The above poem on Norwood Hall is one of the poems. Others, completed before his death, will be published as scheduled.
