W.B. Yeats spent half a lifetime studying the English Romantic William Blake, but perhaps never Found his secret. Maybe a couple of editors who live and teach in the Ozarks have captured Blake in spirit. James Bogan and Fred Goss of the University of Missouri-Rol1a have assembled a lively and motley col1ection of poems, i11ustrations and imaginative and scholarly articles on the 18thcentury poet. "

rmbptrlS 1984 1982 1986 1

Fred Goss, whose doctoral work at the University of Kansas has been involved with Blake, has been a full¡ time member of the UMRolla staff since 1979. He is an editorial assistant with the Center for Applied Engineering Manage¡ ment and also serves as a part-time lecturer in English and the arts. "I met Blake amidst the usual gang of Romantics, found truth in his vision , and worked with and from him ever since," he says. Jim Bogan, associate professor of art at UM Rolla, has been a member of the humanities facult y since 1969. In addition to Blake studies (doctorate also from K.U .), his research and teaching interests include Missouri artist Tom Benton, American films-from Kea ton to Broughton, and art admiration in general. A poet, Bogan has published one book of poems on the Ozarks and another, "Ozark Meandering" nears completion. "William Blake has led me to delightful friends and worlds within ," he comments. "Some of the hundreds of pieces are part of a casual 'put-on ' of Blake - a contrast to the typically staid, ser ious Blake scholarship. But there is meat in

this 'fun meal,' too, such as A. C. Swinburne 's remarks on Blake and Whiteman extracted from an essay first published in 1868. There are solid articles by Karleen M. Murphy, Howard Schwartz, Fred Whitehead and others, and a wide range of verse. Among the poets, Robert Kel1y wrote 'The Book of Water, ' a long, fresh and imaginative poem, after having 'loved Blake and quarreled with and for hi m ' for y ears. Kel1y's is typical of the reaction of many modern poets to Blake. " Two years of close attention and manifold collaborations went into "Sparks of Fire." Assistance came from man y sources. In addition to contributions from artists and authors and editorial and monetary aid from indi viduals, the authors received several gra nts. An Education Assistant Grant from the MSM-UM R Alumni Association provided monetary assistance for the student working on the book's layout and grants were received from the University of Missouri Weldon Springs Fund and the National Endowment fo r the Arts. "It's a delight to read and peruse these new im pressions of an old force in modern art and poetry. 'Sparks of Fire ' makes Blake quite palatable. It is a great study aid or supplement to such serious works as George M. Harper's 'The Neoplatonism of Wj]Jiam Blake' (North Carolina, 19(1), Geoffrey Keynes ' edition of Blake 's letters (Macmillan, 1956), the Random House edition of 'The Book of Urizen (1978), and, of course, the Oxford edition of Blake's poems.

Stonehenge Represents One of Man's Earliest, Most Sophisticated Computers Stonehenge, the ancient mega lith located on Salisbury Plain 75 miles southwest of London, represents one of man's oldest and most sophisticated computers, accordin g to Dr. Joseph Senne, chairman of the U niversit y of MissouriRolla civ il engineering department, and an astronomer. "The original Stonehenge was built in three stages begin ning about 28 00 B.l'. and ending abou t 1100 B.c.," Senne explained_ "The people who constructed it ~to red a great deal of knowledge about the sun and moon in it. " The entire arra y is so oriented that the rising sun at the summer solstice (June 21) could be observed through the central trilithon aligned with the 'heel stone' outside the ring," he continued_ "The 19 sarsen stones following the one-half size stone indicated that Stonehenge's builders were aware of the 19-year eclipse cycle, while the 29 Vz sarsen stones represented the lunar month_ "Consequently, it could be used to predict seasonal changes, eclipses and moon phases, making it a sophisticated computer for the ages," he added. The original Stonehenge also ca n be classified as one of the world's outstanding engineering projects. "To put the construction of Stonehenge in the proper perspective it must be remembered th at it was built about 4,000 years ago and that stones weighing tons were cut, shaped , transported grea t distances and raised and placed with tremendous accuracy usi ng only primitive technology ," said Dr. David Summers, UM R Curators' Professor of Min ing Engineering and director of the U M R Rock Mechanics and Explosive Research Center. The proposed constru ction of a one-half-sca le pa rti al reconst ruction of Stonehenge at U M Rolla , a monument which will be known as UMR -Stonehenge, will offer an in terest ing juxtaposition. "The monument will be located at 14th Street and Bishop Avenue adj ace nt to the site of the planned new M ineral

"G iven U M Rolla's emphasis on e n gil l ee rin ~ Jnd the sciences it was felt that a monument such as U MR Stonehenge would be a particularly appropri ate ane! valuab le addition to ca mpus," he added .

"UMR -Stonehenge has been a fea ture of the CJlll pUS master plan for the last three ye::t rs and fi ts ill with the cor. cept of architec tu ral landsca pin g for the campu s," W, }llard said . "It also has been included ill all of th e archit ectura l drawings for the Mi neral Engineerin g Buile!ing ."

trilithons will measure 13 Yi feet from the ground to the top of its lintel. There also will be a "heel stone," four compass markers and low-level lighting for night use. On June 21 (summer solstice), the summer sunrise will be located between the interfaces of the southwest trilithon and above the heel stone 145 feet to the northeast , while the summer sunset will be visible through the interfaces of the northwest trilithon. On Dec. 21 (winter solstice), the winter sunrise will be located between the interfaces of the southeast trilithon , and the winter sunset will be visible between the interfaces of the southwest trilithon. The south¡facing trilithon will be provided with an aperture for an analemma. During the year, the noon sun shining through this opening will describe a figure "8" on the horizontal and vertical stones at the base of the trilithon . At noon each day , the analemma can be used to determine the date from the location of the sun's image on the figure " 8. "

The north-facing trilithon will be equipped with a "polaris window" through which the North Star can be viewed. Both this feature and the analemma were not part of the original Stonehenge. "While UM R-Stonehenge is based on astronomical principles, it can be used and enjoyed by everyone," Wollard said . "The polaris window and the analemma were added because we wanted the monument to be something that people could use every day , both at night and during the day . 6 / MSM Al u mnus

About 160 tons of granite will be used in the monument. The rock will be cut to the proper dimensions by UMR's Rock Mechanics and Explosives Research Center, using water jet techniques. Because UMR-Stonehenge is a part-time project for those involved and because of "certain specific construction prob¡ lems" in the project an exact date for its completion has not been set. It is hoped, however, that it can be completed in time for next year's summer solstice (June 21 , 1983). The preliminary design phase of the project has been completed and rock for the sarsen stones has arrived. "Accuracy in the placement of the various elements of the monument is of paramount importance," Wollard said. "There is absolutely no room for error, and this increases the time needed to complete the project. "For example, the bases for the trilithons, which measure 15 feet by two feet by 3 Yz feet and weigh over eight tons, must be placed absolutely perpendicular to the ground and then anchored so that they remain so. The weather also will be a factor in how quickly the project is completed," he concluded. In addition to Wollard, other members of the committee are: Senne; Summers; John S. Brown, Class of 1917, of Charlotte, N.C. ; June (Mrs. Fred, Class of '55) Kummer of S1. Louis, landscape consultant; John Vaughn, UM-Rolla director of administrative planning; and Jimmie (Mrs. Hans E. , Class of '44) Schmoldt of Bartlesville, Okla., artistdesigner.

"The degree of management's commitment to safety is the most important factor for avoiding deaths and injuries in coal mines." This is the substance of a report issued this fall by the National Research Council Committee on Underground Coal Mine Safety, chaired by the University of Missouri¡ Rolla's Dr. Ernest M. Spokes, professor of mining engineering. The 190-page study, titled "Toward Safer Underground Coal Mines," was based on an analysis of nearly 40,000 injuries or fatalities in underground coal mines from 1978 through 1980, and information gathered during field trips to mines. The report says that deep coal mines are considerably safer today than they were 10 or 20 years ago. It notes that in the 1930's and 40's more than 1,000 miners were killed annually and that today the number is about 100. The committee emphasizes that the "primary initiative for achieving and maintaining improved coal mine safety must come from the management of coal companies." The results of the study also point out that "Mines with higher productivity have lower injury rates than do less productive mines." The study attributes this to the competence of management at productive mines, saying, "A management that can plan well to increase production can also plan well to improve safety." The report also contains recommendations that the Federal Government should double training requirements in the coal mines and should continue enforcing safety rules strictly. "Laws and regulations requiring affirmative compliance with safety standards are vital to maintaining and improving safety in underground coal mines," the report says. "Enforcement of safety standards and continuing improvement of safety regulations are a necessary part of the overall foundation of a national commitment to improve underground coal mine safety." The study proposes that coal mine industry associations regularl y publish rankings of companies according to their injury and fatality rates and that the Federal Government double the minimum training requirements for new miners. The Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 requires 40 hours of training for new miners, including eight hours at the mine site. The group suggests a "minimum of an additional 40 hours." It says there is a "strong correlation" between injuries and the age of miners-the younger miners have a higher injury rate. Dr. Spokes says the committee was formed at the request

DR. ERNEST M. SPOKES of The President's Commission on Coal. Its 12 members included representatives from labor (I. W. Abel, retired president of the United Steelworkers of America) , medicine, physical sciences, social sciences, engineering and the mining industry. Committee members, meeting over a period from October, 1980, to January, 1982, not only read through stacks of reports and compiled statistics, but made extensive field trips to underground mines. Spokes says the committee found that accident statistics for the 19 largest underground coal producers show that miners who work for companies with the best safety records are four times less likely to be killed or disabled on the job than those who work for companies with the worst safety records. "We are convinced," he says, "that the large coal companies with poor safety records could halve the number of disabling injuries by devoting more resources and attention to safety , by improving cooperation with labor, and by lengthening training." The report, published in August, is expected to generate discussion and attention within the industry . A copy may be obtained from the Na tional Academy Press, 210 I Constitution Ave. , N.W. , Washington, D.C. 20418 . "I hope ma nagers in the mining industry- not only coal mining-will obtain a copy of the report and study it closely,' Dr. Spokes says. "We think it contains information applicable to all underground mines." MSM Alumnus l7

Football Miners ... Defense Shines The highly-touted Miner defense is alive and well! After four games of the 1982 football season, opponents are finding out they once again have their hands full when UMR takes the field. "This may be one of the best groups we have had on the gridiron in many years," said head coach Charlie Finley. "If we can stay relatively free from injury, I hope this club stays in the thick of the MlAA race." The Miners opened the season with a 54-14 loss against Division I Wichita State, a formidable foe that defeated Kansas University the next week! Following this game, the Miners hit the road with a 12-9 victory over Missouri Valley, as quarterback Dennis Pirkle hit split end Dave Stephens with a 52-yard touchdown pass late in the contest. "Our defense did a real nice job in that game," Finley recalled. "Noseguard

Doug Keithly and linebacker Todd Fizer really caused the Vikings problems, along with tackle Bob Pressly. "It was really a nice win, because it is very difficult to whip the Vikings on their home field." UMR finally played before the home crowd Sept. 18, and defeated Pittsburg State University 21-9. The visitors entered the game ranked second in the NAIA Division I-a lofty position they held at the end of the 1981 season. The hero for the Miners during the home opener was cornerback Steven C. Davis, who grabbed a school-tying three interceptions, returning one for a 23-yard touchdown . Davis also batted down two other aerials and was in on eight tackles. "It is hard to have a day much better than Steve did," Finley said. "They defeated us last year, so we all wanted this one really bad." Randy Shed scored his second

touchdown of the season in this game, and continued to rank third in the MIAA in rushing with a 51.6 average. Davis led the MIAA in interceptions with four. Sept. 25 found the Miners on the road to the University of Evansville and involved in their last non-conference test before the MIAA slate. UMR won 14-10, as Jon Falke scored two touchdowns in the mud to pace the Miners to a come-from-behind victory . Paul Denzik paced the UMR defense, picking off two passes and breaking up another from his defensive end spot. UMR opened the MIAA season hosting Lincoln Oct. 2 for homecoming and won that game 23-7. The Miners were 6-3-1 overall in 1981 , 3-1-1 (second place) in the MIAA. UMR has the best overall record of any collegiate team in the state during the past five seasons.

Men's Cross Country Sets Sights On MIAA Meet With more depth than the team has ever enjoyed, the 1982 University of Missouri-Rolla men's cross country team is off to a flying start. Unbeaten in early dual meets, the Miners are setting their sights on the Oct. 30 MIAA meet in Warrensburg with guarded optimism. Pacing the Miners is sophomore Jeff

Peterson, who has turned in the best five-mile time in the team at 26:05. Right behind him is sophomore Dan Lichtenwalner, who recently recorded a mark of 26:19. "Everyone is working very hard and feeling a lot of inner competition," said Coach Dewey Allgood . "We have 23 young men running for us this year, and

that makes it very interesting." Allgood feels Peterson and Lichtenwalner have shots at post-season action if they continue to improve.

"It would be great to take some UMR runners to the nationals again ," Allgood said. "Hopefully someone from this group will make the grade and go." MSM Alumnus / 13

Soccer Miners Off To A Good StortI .. ... Ranked Six Nationally When University of Missouri-Rolla soccer coach Paul McNally saw the 1982 schedule, five straight road games stared him in the face . When the Miners finally returned home, they boasted a 4-1 record and a sixth-place ra nking in the NCAA Division II. "We are certainly happy with the quick start," McNally said. "Anytime you have to start a season off with that many road games, it is a test for your kids. I feel they responded very well." McNally also looks for the remainder of the UM-Rolla season to be a solid one, noting the "best soccer lies ahead. "We haven't played to our potential yet, and I am hoping we can do that later in the season." Faced with their toughest schedule in the team's history , the Miners are riding the play of many talented performers and an overall team effort.

So far , the young Miner contingent is responding to the rigors of the 1982 campaign. "Chris Generous has done an amazing job for us at sweeper back, and wo uld have to be considered a bonafide All-American candidate," McNally said. "His fine play on defense has really helped our young goalie, Bill Cowie, get acclimated into collegiate play." And what a start by Cowie! The freshman goalie played on last year's Missouri State prep soccer championship team, and has stepped in and recorded four shutouts in his first eight varsity starts. The M iners started off the season with a 2-0 win at Washington University on Sept. 4, and followed that the next Saturday with a 2-1 win over Kentucky Wesleyan. Division I foe University of Evansville handed the Miners a 3-0 loss the next day , but the losing streak

started and ended at one! UMR rebounded the next week with shutouts of 2-0 and 1-0 over Wright State and Northern Kentucky, respectively, shooting their record to 4-1 and the sixth spot in the Division II poll. "Mike Shillito has been scoring well for us, and co-captain Tom Kinney has been really doing the job setting up the goals," McNally said. "This team has played well, but still knows there is definite room for improvement." UM-Rolla whipped UM-Kansas City 5-2 Sept. 25, before losing to highlytouted Rockhurst College 2-0 . The Miners, however, again stopped the losing streak at one, blanking Northeast Oklahoma 4-0 in the final contest of September. If the squad can keep this type of trend alive throughout the season, Miner Soccer '82 will be a roaring success!

Two Varsity Sports Added To Women's Schedules The newest kids on the block this fa ll at UMR are women's cross coun try and women's soccer. T he Miner cross country squad, under the direction of Sarah Preston, has surprised many observers and boasts one runner with definite All-American credentials. "Jan Hierholzer, a senior from Florissant, has finished first in early home meets, and finished fourth at the SIUEdwardsville Invitational this year," Preston said. "The only people to finish in front of her in that meet were two All-Americans and the 1982 Missouri State High School champion ." Heirholzer's best time in a 5,000 race is 18:36. Also doing the job for UMR is junior Karen Penney , a native of Creve Coeur. 14/ MSM A lumnu s

She has fin ished second for the Miners in each meet, and boasts a 5,000-meter time of 20:47. How has Preston felt after watching her fledgling group for the first part of the season? " I have been pleased with the way the runners have worked hard and improved their times," she said. "At this stage of the team's life, it is hard to be strong all-around, but we have some great individUal talent to build on ." Also making the jump to varsity status is the UMR women's soccer team . The squad has surprised coach Paul McNally by playing .500 soccer during the early part of the season. " I anticipated many more problems than we have experienced," he said. "We may not be able to stay with real

tough Division II teams, but we certainly are coming around nicely . Hopefully a strong recruiting effort next year can fill some of our voids." F reshman goalie Lisa Frumhoff has been a pleasant surprise to many observers-even McNally. "I knew she was going to be a good one, so her success has not really been that surprising," he said. "But I guess she even showed me a little more ability than I thought she would." Also impressive has been defender Chris Waeckerle and midfielders Jan Wilkerson and G ina Tonsi. First-year programs traditionally have to struggle, but the newest Miner women's sports are providing plenty of reason to smile.

Fa AFROTC Returns to UMR

Bryson is Back Home Lt. Col. Tom Bryson, new professor of military science and head of the Army ROTC program at UMR is back home. Bryson was first on campus as a student in mechanical engineering, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1964 . He came back to campus in 1970 to teach in the ROTC program and complete a master's degree in engineering management. He assumed his new duties in July. "I feel as if I'm back home," Bryson said. "My wife, Reba, and our children, Brent, Sara and Mindy, plan to settle here when I retire." He's found a lot of changes on campus. "From an enrollment of about 100 students in 1974, the UMR Army ROTC program has grow n to nearly 900," he said. One of his goals is to continue the quality Army ROTC program that is a tradition at UMRolla. "The number of four- and two-year scholarships awarded to this campus is increasing every year, and we like to keep it that way," he said. Bryson returned to Rolla after serving with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Ft. Leonard Wood and Ft. Riley and in Vietnam and German y. He was commissioned a second lieutenant through the ROTC program at UMR in 1964. He is a graduate of the Engineer Officer Advanced Course and of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff Course. His awards include the Meritorious Service Medal with two oak leaf clusters and the Army Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster. Bryson is a member of the Society of American Military Engineers and the Association of the United States Army. He belongs to the Salem Avenue Baptist Church. The family lives on Hobso n Star Route. He is a native of Salem, Mo. 16! MSM Alumnu s

"The UMRolla campus was one of four-out of 140 applications-selected for the establishment of an Air Force ROTC program this fall," says Lt. Col. Lynn B. Ralston, professor of aerospace studies and head of the AFROTC program at UMR . "The quality of education available at UMR and the quality of students on this campus were the two main reasons it was decided to reactivate the program after an absence of six years," he continued. Col. Ralston explained that the Air Force of the future is expected to be extremely technical and most of the educational areas Air Force officers will need as background are available at UMR. 'Those making the decisions were particularly impressed with the leadership and management potential of the UMR students-their attitudes, motivation and values are what the Air Force is looking for," he says. Th is fall there are 65 students enrolled in the AFROTC program on campus and 11 of these hold full Air Force scholarships with three more students currently being considered for scholarships. Col. Ralston expects about 15 more students will be added to the scholarship roster in the spring. The Air Force ROTC program was first established on the UMR campus in 1971 , but was deactivated in 1976 after the campus had experienced a drop in enrollment and the viability of the AFROTC program was questionable. Since that time, interest in both engineering in general and the Air Force in particular has increased rapidly. "The new program here at UMR has only been active for four months," say Col. Ralston and already it ranks second in the region ." The region includes 32 AFROTC programs in seven states, from Texas to Nebraska. T he ranking includes such factors as students' grade point averages, quality of the university (programs accredited, etc) , and students' scores on the Air Force Officer Quotient Test (AFOQT). The AFROTC program at Iowa State is number one. "I am very optimistic about the future of the Air Force relationship on this campus," Col. Ralston says. "Our ROTC program is off to a good start and we also hope to establish ties with AFIT (Air Force Institute of Technology). We now have ten regular Air Force personnel enrolled at UMR as candidates for both graduate and undergraduate degrees through AFIT, and hope to set up a program that will quadruple the number by next year."

Memorial to Richard Warren Richard Warren was born April 30,1899 in Wichita, Kansas. He was raised in Wichita and Hutchinson, Kansas, and later moved to EI Paso, Texas, where he completed his secondary education. During World War I, Richard served in the U.S. Navy and Merchant Marines having attended the Harvard University Naval Training School. Richard received the B.S. degree from Purdue in 1924, and the M.S. from Columbia University in 1934. He earned the Ph.D. in Physics Education from Purdue in 1954, and served on the Columbia Statistical Bureau. He was employed by Westinghouse Corporation and the Underwriters Statistical Bureau. He taught at Middle Georgia College, the West Virginia Institute of Technology, the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, and Purdue. After graduating from Purdue, he taught at the Michigan College of Mining and Technology. He invented and patented a graphite sensitive electronic grading machine and an analogue computer. Richard came to MSM in 1957 as an assistant professor of physics, and taught the sophomore and atomic physics courses here for the next twelve years until his retirement from UMR in 1969. He was an educator at heart. His love of

students and of his subject combined to make him one of the most popular teachers on campus. In 1967 he received the Outstanding Teacher Award. His classroom style was such as to put the students at ease while introducing them to the intricacies of physics. Indeed, just before a big exam it was not unusual for "Pop" Warren to bring forth a witticism that would put the class in stitches-a ploy that relieved a great deal of pre-test anxiety. Outside the classroom, students and staff alike found a willing helper and delightful companion. Those that availed themselves of the Warren hospitality could, if they stayed up late enough, hear some pretty good ragtime piano at their home on South 63. After his retirement from UMR, Richard continued to teach at Chowan College, North Carolina. Upon retiring from teaching, he and Viola joined their two sons in Springfield, Missouri, where he remained until his death on May 4, 1982. The committee requests that this memorial be incorporated in the official minutes of the UMR Faculty meeting of August 31 , 1982, and in the minutes of the following Academic Council meeting. It is also requested that copies of this memorial be sent to Richard's wife, Mrs. Viola Warren, and to his sons, Richard and William. Respectfully submitted, J. C. Carstens C. R. McFarland Malcolm B. Cole
