MINER SPORTS Photos and text

Miner Football-Alumni vs Varsity

On a warm and sunny weekend last April more than 40 former Miner football players came back to the campus to do battle with the 1986 varsity team . The event-one that the UMR athletic department hopes will be an annual affair-included reunions, barbecues and social gatherings. But the featured event was a contest between the varsity and the old-timers. The old-timers team included recent Miner standouts such as John Frerking, '86, and Mike Meyer, and former gridiron heroes Keith Bailey, '64, and Jim DeBold, '66 . Many of them found out that their first hurdle would be to fit the extra poundage gathered over the years into the tight-fitting uniforms. In some cases spare tires around the middle were prominentaly featured. Once the game started it became obvious to the alumni squad's coach , the Miner's Chuck Broyles, that frequent substitutions would be the order of the day. The huffing and puffing from the alums could be almost heard from across the field, but they hung on to show the young players a thing or two. In the end the varsity prevailed, 13-0, but the spirit of camaraderie was evident not only on the playing field but also in the locker room.

UMR Transfer Program Has 14-Year Succe~s Record This fall , several hundred members of UM-Rolla's graduating class of 1990 will be freshmen-not- on the UMR campus-but at 37 different two-year or four-year colleges and universities_ These students are participants in UMR's 14-year-old Transfer Assistance Program (TAP) , a specially designed program to help students who wish to take part of _the work required for a UMR degree at another college_ "TAP is essentially an agreement with students that if they follow the TAP program and make the required academic average, they will be accepted at UMR and graduate on time without -interruption in their program ," said David Allen, UMR assistant director of admissions who is in charge of the transfer program _ According to UMR officials and transfer students, TAP has a long history of success_ "Programs have been worked out between UMR and the individual participating institutions so that students can satisfy the requirements of both UMR and their own college during theirTirst two years," Allen explained_ "Credits and grade points are transferred jiJst as though they had been earned here at UMR and are counted toward eligibility for such things as scholarships and honor societies_ Most of the students continue to earn about the same grade point average after they cOme to UMR," he added_ He said that students can transfer to UMR witholJt participating in TAP, but in doing so they may take some courses that won't count toward a UMR degree_In addition, individual students who attend schools without official TAP agreements with UMR may participate in special TAP programs arranged by the UMR Admissions Office _ The transfer programs are available in 13 different fit<lds of engineering and in computer science, geology and geophysics _ Allen said that there .is more to TAP than just transferring. "T AP participants work -with members of a transfer staff from UMR who counsel and assist students and their pre-engineering advisers befor'e the stud'ent~ transfer and also after they arrive at UM!:{," he explained . "In addition, there are. special transfer orientation and preregistration programs." Allen said that "at anyone time, there are between 1,000 and 1,200 students involved in the offi~ial transfer program . Approximately 90 percent of the students who transfer to UMR in the TAP program receive their degrees at UMR," he added_ Robert B. Lewis, UMR director of admissions, said that the program is growing every year. "There are so many transfer students on the Rolla campus that UMR has an ---.. alumni 'chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, community college honor society ." Transfer students also receive an extra benefit: a $500 annual scholarship is made


available by the MSM-UMR Alumni Association to a student at each of the participating TAP schools. In addition, once they get to UMR , transfer students are ,eligible for departmental scholarships, part-time work, and federal and state grants and loans. They also may participate in the cooperative education program (in which 'students alternate semesters of work in industry and classes on campus), and Missouri students are eligible for the University Scholars Program , which waives a portion of educational fees for outstanding academic performance. Lewis said that there are advantages to being on campus all four years, such as being a part of the group from the beginning 'and having a chance to get acquainted with different branches of engineering. "But for students who need or want to attend a local college for a year or two before coming to UMR, if they participate in TAP, their co!lege or professional careers will not suffer. We have several thousand successful transfer graduates who are proof of that ," he said. Missouri educational institutions participating in the TAP program are: Central Methodist College, Fayette; Central Missouri S41te University, Warrensburg; Crowder College, Neosho; East Central Junior College, Union; St. Louis Community Colleges at Florissant Valley, Forest Park and Meramec; HanniballaGrange College, Hannibal; Jefferson College, Hillsboro; Longview Community College, Lee's Summit; Maple Woods Community College, North Kansas City; Mineral Area College, Flat River; Missouri Southern College, Joplin; Missouri Western State College, St. -Joseph; Moberly Junior College, Moberly; Northeast Missouri State University, Kirksville; Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville; Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield; Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau; Penn Valley Community College, Kansas City; Rockhurst College, Kansas City; Southwest Baptist College, Bolivar; State Fair Community College, Sedalia; Three Rivers Community College, Poplar Bluf( The .School of the Ozarks, Point Lookout; Trenton Junior College, Trenton; University of Missouri-St. Louis. In Illinois, TAP programs are available with Belleville Area College, Belleville; John A. Logan College, Carterville; Kaskaskia College, Centralia; John Wood Community College, Quicy; Lewis & Clark Community College, Godfrey; Rend Lake College, Ina; Southeastern l11inois Community College, Harrisburg. TAP programs are alSo available at Paducah Community College, Paducah, Ky.; and in Kansas, at Donnelly College, Kansas City, and Johnson County Community College, Overland Park . Lewis said that additionaJ programs are expected to be established in Ulinois and in Oklahoma and Arkansas, as well as Missouri. .

Research on Missouri's Caves Adapted For Military Use tunnels are about 10 feet square, some cut through solid granite, and some go to Techniques developed by a UM-Rolla researcher to locate natural caves and depths of more than 300 feet ," Rechtien said. other underground open spaces in Missouri may help the U.S. Army pinpoint. He explained that the methods he is using are based on those he used in his man-made tunnels in other parts of the world. earlier research on Missouri's underground solution cavities. Dr. Richard Rechtien, UMR associate professor of geology and geophysics, is "Essentially, we send energy into the ground in the form of waves which are adapting methods he has researched over the past 15 years for use by the U.S. propagated through the ground . When these waves encounter a tunnel or other Army Corps of Engineers Waterways Experiment Station. Rechtien's research deals with the development of techniques for locating opening, some of that energy is reflected back to the surface. By measuring this "solution cavities" (caves or other underground openings formed when rock is energy, we can interpret it in terms of location and depth ," he said_ At present , Rechtien is modeling the geological and geophysical aspects of the worn away or dissolved by fluids). project on the computer, testing the data he generates, and developing a theory Previously his work has been used to determine whether such underground for the analysis of that data. Once the procedure is established , he will test it in open ings ex ist under proposed highway or dam sites. According to Rechtien, his current research centers on detecting man- made tu nnels such as those dug by the _ the field at several sites to verify experimental and data analysis techniques. Working with Rechtien are Kurt Hambacker, computer engineer in North Koreans beneath the demilitarized zone that separates North and' South UM-Rolla's electrical engineering department, and Jeff Gabel, UMR geophysics Ko rea. "Military authorities have known for some time that these tunnels exist. The grad uate student.

Harry left Banner to · become manager and partner of Sorbo-Mat Process Engineers, a process he and associates developed_ From that time his business and professional affiliations expanded. During his career he was consultant to more than 350 ferrous and nonferrous foundries in the U.S. and 30 foreign countries and , from time to time, owned a number o(foundries. As · a sideline-from 1927 until well into the 1970s- Harry refereed more than 5,000 boxing matches; including some 15 world title bouts. Income from this endeavor was donated to various charities. During his career he earned the Tau Beta Pi Eminent Engineer A ward- International; the Achievement Award of the St. Louis Engineers Club; the Albert Einstein , Award, Technion; the Missouri Inventor of the Year A ward and Inventor Emeritus, In ventor's Association; and the Ameri<;an Fdundr y m e n ~s Society's highest award, the John H. Whiting Gold Medal. His Alma Mater awarded him the MSM -UMR Alumni Association Merit Award (1957); the professional degree, Metallurgical Engineer, (1959) ; the Doctor of Engineering . deg(ee (Honoris Causa) in 1967 ; and the Centennial Medal of Honor in 1971. He was a member of UMR 's major gift club, the Order of the Golden Shillelagh. In his autobiography-pub lished

in 1982-Harry talked at length about his experiences at MS M. He arrived in Rolla after a four-and-a · half hour train trip from St. Louis and secured a room in the home of Professor and Mrs. Reginald Scott Dean at 1311 State St. , where he lived for the next four years. He says, in part: "Rolla had a total enrollment of 367 students in 1920. Only four of us were Jewish , and we received a rather rare treatment. I thought. N9thing overt, just an aura that seemed to indicate· we wore black capes and had horns growing out of our foreheads . We wer y all roommates at the Dean house; Arthur Levinson, Milton Levy, (Leo) Shapiro and myself. "As the school year got underwa y and I began to learn the unwritten laws of Rolla (which somehow seemed more important than the constitutionally written ones), [ engaged in a battle of wits with the professor (Dean). One of the unwritten laws was ' that any time a prof was five minutes [ate in appearing before his class" the class would bolt. Since our first class- his and mine- was at 8 a.m. , I would wait until the last possible moment and rush into the bathroom before him . Naturally , I would be in there a long time, enough so that when I emerged scrubbed and polished, ·1 cou ld get to class on time- but he couldn't. " I did that man y, man y times- until he tired of the game and kicked me out of his class! "A bout a month later, he inquired of one of the other stude nts: 'Where's Kessler?' '''You kicked him out ,' was the reply. "Dean was unperplexed. 'Tell that jackass to come back,' he said . "Puzzled, the student as ked , 'He · lives in the room next to yours. Wh y don't you tell him yourself?' '-'He did .. .and I did. But math , as usual , '!las still one of my worst subjects." ..... Rolla and I were meant for each other. The Missouri School of Mines

and Merallurgy was a hard school in· the sense that it took its purpose very seriously, as did I. My four years there were wonderful learning years; ambitious, formative, knowledgeable years. "As a young blade, [ was also very serious, more interested in getting my education , working and boxing, than I was in what were considered the f(1ore frivolou s acti vities usuall y associated with college, things like fraternities and dating. There was not time enough III my regimen for romance ." " ...1 returned to Rolla in the fall of 192 1. delighted to be a sophisticated sophomore. At least I thought I was. I had delusions of being the' second Rudolph Valentino- ;md wore my sideburns long- which was unusual in those days. I considered myself to be a fairl y nice looking guy who dressed meticulously. (I n those days I favored wearing a derb y hat on occasion and began collecting stra w hats which [ took to sporting in summer. I think I still have 14 sk immers sitting in the closet. ) [ never missed a wee kl y trip t9 the barbershop. What a catch I considered myself! ... ..1 hac!. lots of girlfriends after [ started dating in my second year at Rolla but never go.t in vol ved on a permanent basis. "Thanks to Mrs. Dean , I oft en attended the Methodist churCh socials. I wasn't planning to convert- it was just that there were always plent y of girls at those Sunday evening events l .... .my nose was mostl y to the educational grindstune. 'In addition to boxing and mechanical draw ing student assistantshi ps, I had to keep up with my own classes. Alas. my second year at Rolla was no grea t im provement over my first. I was fascinated by metallurgy to a point which .perhaps was detrimental tQ my other studies. Or, may be I was just not a good student." " ... My junior yea r at Rolla was also enhanced when I obtained a· st udent assistant job in metallograpr. y. Question was: How could I fit another student assistantship into a

life that was already crammed for time? You always give a busy ma n more to do-beca use the busy man gets I . done. This is not my ho mil y, bu t it certain ly applies in this in-stance. " During ,the two yea rs I was a student assistant in metallograp hy, I somehow managed to squeeze the job in whenever I could. Before classes, in free·periods. at night. It didn't miltter. Huntlreds of samples were reo quired for the di versified programs and they were always ready at the appointed hou r. Just don't ask me how. " ...Again I wound up in a ve ry educational and-for me- profitable spot. The job also pa id $26 a month . Added to my income from coach ing the boxing team and the mechan ical draw ing assis'la ntship, I was now earning $7 8 a month ." .. ... [n time. four yea rs had flown by: [ had [ought my last fight in the ring and hung up my gloves fo r good . G radua tion was upon. us and I was no longer a boxing coach, or student assis ta nt in the ath le tic department , mec ha n ica l dr awing or metallography. "The Class ef L924-all 35 of us. thr ee o f wh o m we re - in metallurgy- bi d adieu to Alm a Mater in a formal cap and gown ceremony in Parker Hall on a warm day in earl y June. Somehow [ managed to fini sh in the up per fourth of the class. Litera ll y and figurati vely, [ had fought my wa y thro ugh co l· lege- helped by the money fro m boxing instruction and my other teaching duties. Moreover, I knew I had accomplished all that I had set out to do ed ucationally. As I went for ward to receive my degree as a Bachelor of Science in Meta llu rgy. those four yea rs fl ashed across an imagi nary screen on the inside of my fo rehead. My mi nd read the images and relayed the message that I had been exceptionall y well prepared fo r whatever lay ahead." Harry Kess ler is survived by his wife Alma, 7 Dromara Road, St. Louis, MO 63 124 , a da ughter, two sons and .one grandchild .
