Alumni President Jim McGrath opened the fall meeting of the MSM-UMR Alumni Association on Friday, Oct. 18, i,n the Mark Twain Room of the University Center by welcoming the 32 members present. Matt Coco, secretary, reported that all those nominated for thre~- year terms on the BQard of Directors had been elected. They are: Thor Gjelsteen (re-elected) and S. Dale McHenry, directors at large; area directors--W.R . "Pat" Broaddus Jr. (re-elected); Harold G. Butzer (re-elected); James B. Chaney (re-elected); Eugene J. Daily (re-elected); B. Neil Lewis (re-elected); David N. Peacock ; and Roy A. Wilkens. He also announced that Bob Peppers and Carlos Tiernon had been appointed to the board for one-year terms to fill vacancies, and that Bill Collins had been appointed to the board as committee chairman and Armin Tucker is to continue on the board as a committee chairman . President McGrath congratulated the new board members and expressed his thanks to retiring board members Jim Gostin, Dave Kick , Ken Pohlig, Bob Ray and Walt Mulyca . Matt Coco then presented the minutes of the previous meeting, April 13, and they were accepted. The association financial report was presented by Jack Painter, treasurer, and the annual fund report was presented by AI Buescher, vice president. Details of these reports will appear in the February "Honor Roll" issue of the MSM Alumnus. During discussion of these funds, a suggestion was reported proposing that the association establish an emergency loan fund for new tenured track facul ty members who have just been hired and will not receive a pay check until the end of September. The issue was referred to the finance committee to study and report back at a later board meeting. A motion was passed to appoint Bill Collins

chairman of the finance committee and another motion was passed authorizing the finance committee to contract with an asset management firm to handle the association investments. President McGrath suggested that a committee comprised of AI Buescher, Art Baebler, himself and any other interested board member, be formed to discuss possible techniques for a major endowment campaign. Bob Wolf presented the proposed student financial aid budget for 1986-87. He pointed out that the 1985-86 budget had increased the amount of some scholarships and the number of scholarships awarded for a total of a 31 percent overall increase. (Don Brackhahn reported that 133 students recei ved checks for approximately $68 ,500 at the beginning of the fall semester and approximately the same amount would be available to the students at the beginning of -the spring semester. Payments were also being made for work being done by students on the Educational Assistants program--total budget for 1985-86--$142,750.) The Student Financial Aid Budget Committee recommended a budget for 1986-87 of $200,000, an increase of about 40 percent ($250 increase for 25 scholarships, the addition of 20 $1 ,250 scholarships, 12 $2,000 scholarships and the addition of $2,000 for educational assistants--about 400 hours). A motion ' was made to approve the proposed budget and was passed. Bob Klorer announced the names of those who would be honored at t-he Alumni Awards Banquet on the following day, (see pages 2 & 3 of this issue of the Alumnus), and Art Baebler reported on activities of the four campus University of Missouri Alumni Alliance.

University of Missouri P'r ograms of-Eminence As part of the Board of Curators' long-range plan, eight University of Missouri programs will receive a boost toward reaching or maintaining international and national eminence. Recommended for eminence are UM-Rolla's intelligent industrial system-s program and matenals engineering and science program, UM-Kansas City's telecommunications and computer 'science program, UM-Columbijl's journalism, molecular biology and Fopd fm the 21st Century programs, UM-St. Louis' chemistry program"and UM Extension's commercial agriculture program. "Eminence designations in these areas, which were selected from among programs previously identified for enhancement as part of the curators' long-range plan, would focuS positive attention on the University and the state of which UM is a vital part," says UM president, C. Peter Magrath_ The attention would come not only from the academic community but from


business, industry and goyernment, Magrath points out. In developing the recommendations Magrath and his staff considered the . potential of programs to benefit the state as well as their appropriateness to the University'S overall mission. Also weighed were the relationship of each .program to others at the University, the likelihood of achieving national or international eminence and the possibilities for attracting additional revenue. The total amount of resources needed to help all of these programs attain or maintain. eminence has yet to be .determined. "I believe that the money spent. to achieve or maintain eminence in these eight programs will be among the best investments Missouri can make. The programs will be a foundation of quality on which we can build an even better University," Magrath says. A more detailed explanation of UM-Rolla's two projects follows:

"American industry is poiSed at the brink of a major step in the development of industrial systems," says UM-Rolla Interim Chancellor John T. Park_ "This step features the integration' of the design and manufacturing production process in which the entire operation .from concept to finish, will be done interactively. with the computer_ . "UMR's program is helping to supply the new engineers and the research to 'advance the science and technology necessary to increase productivity in competition with the rest of th~ industrial world," he. added _ According to Dr. Robert L. Davis, dean of the UMR School of Engineering, the UMR Eminent Program in Intelligent Industrial Systems is interdisciplinary. Participants in the program include faculty and students from computer science, mechanical and aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, engineering management, metallurgical engineering,_psychology, and the Rock Mechanics and Explosives Research Center. A wide variety of projects related to artificial intelligence and industrial automation are now in progress or have been completed recently on the UMR campus, according to Dr. Marvin W. Barker, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. "In the areas of artificial intelligence and exPert srstems, a current project is exploring the development of an expert system to encode variations in mine performance that will be useful in determining causes for reduced production. Another effort that is iri the planning stage deals with an artificial intelligence system for materials selection in the chemical processing industry," he says. Robotics area research includes the statistical reproducibility of robot positioning development of a control system for a miniature robot used with a machine vision-sorting system and a study of robot path control to optimize the machine motion. Materials processing and handling projects include gin examination of the use of water jets with abrasives to cut metals and a feasibility study using a . microcomputer. _ "These projects are just a start in the great potential for the program in intelligent industrial systems," Davis says_ "Reflecting the impact of compu'terized technology in this country's malmfacturing industries, UMR has made a major commitment to manufacturing automation-intelligent industrial systems. To Keep its graduates up-to-date, UMR is developing a fuliy integrated flexible manufacturing system on campus that amounts to a small automated factory for teaching and research . The curriculum has been modified to incorporate the integration of this technology into existing courses and the creation of sev.eral new ones." The program is supported by new computer systems, including a main frame computer, super minicomputers, an artificial intelligence computer, specialized


minicomputers, and a substantial number of microcomputers. There are interactive graphics terminals and suitable software for teaching computer-aided design (CAD) from the freshman level throughout the entire undergraduate program. Robotics has been introduced into both research and undergraduate programs. As a result, engineering students at UMR use equipment and facilities similar to those found in industry and gain hands-on experience in every phase of the modern manufacturing process. They design parts on UMR's computer graphics system, program industrial robots, shape parts with computer numerically con-

trolled machine tools, and use computers to monitor quality control, oversee production and assess statistical performance. "University programs to provide graduates in the field of intelligent indusyial systems are under intense pressure to develop both faculty and facilities rapIdly," Park says. "The UMR campus has a nucleus of capable and interested faculty currently working in many of these areas. UMR's interdisciplinary profam is one of the few in the nation with this breadth of activity in industri,al; mtomation."


UMR's Eminent Program in Materials Engineering and Science



The University of Missouri-Rolla's Eminent Prqgram in Materials Engineering and Science will concentrate on a small number of new materials topics in addition to UMR's established research areas in metallic, polymeric, ceramic and composite materials for "cutting edge" research for the future_



! I


Interim Chancellor Park says that the new materials topics will be selected from those compatible with UMR;s current educational program a'rid are expected to have special national importance for the foreseeable future. "Some of the areas being targeted for future growth are: high temperature composite materials (aircraft and ceramic engine applications), telecommunication and remote senSQr materials, and corrosion and wear-resistant coating materials. All of these are attracting national attention because of their technological importance," he ~ys. . Dr. Don L. Warner, dean of the UMR School of Mines and Metallurgy, pointed out that the eminent progtam to enhance the materials engineering and science program at UMR builds on more than a century of strength in these areas. - "The.education and research programs in materials engineering and science at UMR are unique in 'the state," Warner says. "Since it was founded in 1871 to eduCate engineers for Missouri's mining industry, UMR has developed strong engineering and science programs in materials engineering and science. The department of metallurgical engineering was added in 1890 and the ceramic engineering department in 1927. The Graduate Center for Materials Research was est<!blished in 1964." . Materials engineering and science research includes most of the science and engineering disciplines at UMR. Within the framework of the Graduat.e Center for Materials Research are the Institute for Chemical and Extractive Metallurgy, the Institute for Thin Film Proce~ing, and the Electronics Materials Processing and Characterization Institute. In these institutes, and in the Missouri Mining and Mineral Resources Research Institute and the General Mineral Technology Center Pyrometallurgy, is a large multidisciplinary research effort, which along with research in individual departments, will be brought together under the Eminent Program for Materials Engineering and Science. Researchers in materials engineering and science include faculty from the departments of ceramic, electrical, civil, metallurgical, geological, mining, nuclear, mechanical and aerospa(,:e... and chemical engineering, engineering mechanics, chemistry, geology, physics, and the Environmental Research Center and Graduate Centers for Cloud Physics Research and for Materials Research. Research at the Materials Research Center ranges from fundamental science to applied engineering and includes a large number of subjects dealing with the development, evaluation, application and understanding of the behavior of ceramics, metals, and polymers. Major research areas include corrosion; materials processing technology; biomaterials; materials development, characterization and property evaluation; magnetic materials; surface physics, modification and analysis; electrochemistry, mass transport in solids; and waste recovery/recycling. "UM-Rolla has a long tradition of working with private industry on materials research and development problems," Park says. Some of these are ion-implanted metals for improved wear and corrosion resistance; chemical durability and therma'l performance of refractory concretes used in coal gasifiers; evaluation and optimi0ition of metal electrolyte quality using cyclic voltammetry techniques; metal alloy coating of bearings; development of polymer membranes for separation processes and coating for corrosion protection and leakage; surface modification of polymers and polymeric water vapor barriers; and development of chemically durable oxynitride glasses. Park says that research in materials engineering and science has special relevance to Missouri's economy and industries. / "The field of materials is a major part of the economy of the state of Missouri since it includes not only those industries that produce materials such as iron, lead, steel, glass, cement and chemicals, but also those industries that use A UMR researcher studies a method of depositing a thin film of corrosion and wear materials in their manufacturing processes, such as automotive, ~ircniftand elecresistant coating material. tronics industries," _Park says.

Wixson Edits Jack Conroy Stories "The Weed King and Other Stories by Jack Conroy," which was edited by Dr. Douglas Wixson, associate professor of English at UMR, was published recently by Lawrence Hill & Co. (Conroy, who is a resident of MoberJy, is perhaps best known as the author of the novel "The Disinherited.") The book, including a foreword by Conroy, contains 32 stories which , according to ' Wixson, "span Conroy's career and show the uniqueness that he possesses as a writer." . The book is divided into four sections: "Uncle Ollie Stories," underscoring the enduring characteristics of rural folk c'ulture in northeast Missouri while addressing social and political issues; "Folk Narratives," based on oni! narratives



Conroy heard and collected throughout his life; "Tales from Monkey Nest ," containing autobiographicai sketches drawn from the mining camp area near Moberly where Conroy grew up; and "Tales of Workers," dealing with the social circumstances of workers and farmers. "Several of the stories in the book had disappeared from print," Wixson explained. "As a result, I spent innumerable hours in libraries and archives searching out manuscripts, often Wixson is currentl y working on another book dealing with Conroy's ' writing that will be titled "Exiles at Home: A Critical Study of Jack Conroy and Other Midwestern Literary Radicals." r

Gene Green, Editor Coach Billy Key To Head NABC

Basketball Miners Return Many V~terans The University of Missouri-Rolla men's basketball team will ret urn four starters from last year's sq uad, but must face the problem of filling the scoring and rebounding void left by the graduation of all-time leading scorer Curtis Gibson. . Returning for the 1985-86 season are seniors Mark Zarr (6-6), Kris Stange (6-7), Dave Moellenhoff (6-8) and Joe Cunningham (5 -11), along with juniors Bill Walker (6-3), Stu O'Kraski (6-2) and sophomores Duane Huddleston (6-4) and Mark Givens (6-4) . I'm looking fo rward to the season, and realize once again that we have continued to upgrade our schedule and that it will be quite a challenge," said Miner head coach Billy Key. "We are facing very tough non-league competition, playing teams like Arkansas State, Abilene Ch ristian and, tournaments at Quincy College and Northeastern State in Oklahoma ,"

Miner Center Dave MoeUenboff will be counted on for some added scoring pulicb in '85-'86.

Top newcomers on the sq uad include Iowa all-stater Adrian Davis (5 -8), and junior college standout Julius Lewis (6-3). The most obvious problem for this year's group will be to fi ll the void left by Gibson , a 6-5 forward who gained All-American status for the Miners last year.

"Za rr, Moellenhoff and Stange have the ability to improve on their scori ng and rebounding totals of a year ago," Key noted. "A nd . Huddleston has show n us the ski lls needed to be a dominant player in the MIAA." Key also looks for veterans such as O'Kraski, Walker and Cunningham to be a factor, with newcomers like Lewis and Davis stepping in and giving the squad an immediate lift. Good shooting has bee"n a Miner mainstay the past few years, as UMR has paced the MIAA in shooting percentage three straight seasons. Last year the team con nected on 746 of 1,472 shots, good for a .507 mark , It also made 71 percent of its free throws, making its 13· 13 season one highlighted by tremendous shooting. Key thinks the team can improve on last year's 4-8 mark in the league , as UM- Rolla lost three MIAA games by ten points or less and two contests by only one point. "Southeast Missouri and Central Missouri are no doubt the teams to beat once again ," he said of the league race, " But this conference really features teams that can whip each other on any given night. I do think we'll be competitive and hope to be right in the thick of the race,"

In his 27 years of collegiate coaching, Key has entered some of the select circles of the basketball world. He has won 363 games, well over 500 counting prep wins, and is among the top 10 winningest coaches active in the NCAA II. Soon, however, he will be at the top of his profession when he is sworn in as the president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). At the Final Four Tournaments in Dallas next spring, Ke y will take over the s lot from - Georgetown University's John Thompson. He will then serve as NABC President fO'r 1986-87, before turning the duty over to Indiana University head coa~h Bobby Knight.

''I'm looking forward to serving as NABC President." Key said. "I ha ve spent man y years with the organiza· tion , and have a great deal of respect for what it stands f9r. I'll tr) to do my best to represent the office in fine fashion ."

"We have been consideririg this type of tribute for some time," said UM R athletic director Billy Key. "This Hall of Fame will pay tribute and give recognition to forme r at hletic letter-winners, coaches and others who have made exceptional contributions to this athletic program over the years."

(Alumni athletes are not considered for induction while they serve on the Hall of Fame selection com mittee.) To be selected as a coach, five

years must elapse after active coacAing service at MSM -U MR is completed. Former coaches may not be considered while serving on the selection committee, and considera· tions for selection include: Al Recognition as an authority/leader in the sport area involved; B) Length and qualit y of the coaChing' record a nd program growth : a nd Cl Achievement of the individual after leaving active coaching service at MSM-UMR .

"All nominations should be sent to me, and i will forward them to the selection committee. A unanimous vote of all selection committee members is required to elect a candidate." Key added that plans call fm the initial induction ceremonies to take place prior to a selected UMR varsity football game in the fall of 1986.

Top newcomers include guards Mary Pudlowski (5-6), and Susan Housh (5-5) , with Tonya Clemons (6-4) adding some depth at center this season. "We will have to be on the attack a lot more this season," Ortelee said. "We can't be passive and win very often. We should be able to run the fast break a great deal, and that is the type of basketball I like to play."

National Science Center for Com m unication s and Electronics Foundat ion A National Imperative .For the past 20 y«ars, the U.S. has permitted a stelldy , serious decline of its citizens' science and math competence. .Over the same period, every other developed nation has made a major, sustained commitment to increased science and math education. .• Result? According to the National Science Board: " ...Already the quality of our manufactured products, the viability of our trade, our leadership in research and development, and other standards of living are strongly challenged. Our childre'n could be stragglers in a world of .technology... We must not let this happen." A National Response .The National Science Center for Communications and Electronics (NSCCE) will be a uniquely American answer to the stiffeSt educational and economic challenges we face abroad: stimulating renewed emphasis on quality science education in a way that draws upon--and enhances--the energetic diversity of our educational institu·tions. • A "Center without walls," the NSCCE will affect millions of Americans directly--students, teachers, parents, employers, and employees in all walks of life.

• Key elements of the Center include: (a) a Learning and Information Network Center (LINe) to produce, acquire, and distribute improved science and education materials nationwide; (b) a Technology Demonstration Center to help visitors trace past, present, and future challenges in communications and electronics; and (c) a Research Program to support development of more effective interactive learning strategies, and to help educators stay abreast of these new strategies. A National Commitment • Building the NSCCE will take a truly national commitment from both the public and private sectors. .Congress has taken the first step by overwhelmingly endorsing the project in a· joint resolution'. The U.S. Army has agreed to provide a site for the NSCCE at Fort Gordon, Georgia and to assume responsiblility for maintenance and operation costs once the Center is completed. • It is now up to the private sector to raise the funds needed to build the Center. The National Science Center for Communications and Electronics Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization, is working to achieve this goal.
