A special section occupies the first 28 pages of this issue. Included in it are articles by a pair of well-known educators —Robert M. Hutchins (page 7) and Edwin D. Harrison (page 25). The staff of the magazine also takes a look a t three other well-known men of our time—Carl G. Hempel, Mark Van Doren, and J . Bronowski, and a rising poet on the campus—Larry Rubin. The issue is profusely illustrated by the work of Tech student photographers.

of you

who

read this magazine that deep within us is a strong tendency towards nepotism which from time to time breaks into the open. For years our wife> art work has graced the pages of the Alumnus when the mood happened to strike her or when we were able to con her into producing. Now for the first time our youngest daughter, Marilu, has come up with a sketch that made the cover of an issue. Actually, this pen and ink sketch was not done with the magazine in mind. Marilu, a 15-year-old who has shown some of her mother's talent for several years, just decided she wanted to draw a "sad clown saying his goodbye to the circus." We happened to see it one evening just about the time we were looking for something to represent the humanities in a folder we were preparing for the Franklin Foundation Lecture Series and decided that this clown really represented as much of man's total experience as anything we could possibly think of. When we informed Marilu that we were interested in using the completed piece of art she showe'd that she had picked up something else from her mother. "How much will I get paid if you use it?" she queried. "And don't I get paid twice if you use it for a brochure and the magazine both?" How about that, the girl already had learned about residuals. Like Marilu's cover, this issue is somewhat different than any we have ever published. It has a number of articles by writers with which you may disagree. And the special guests of this issue saw their share of disagreement while they were on the campus. But all four made it a point to inform Tech authorities that the students and faculty acted as ladies and gentlemen at all times during the debates. And there were no picket signs, no booing, and much applause. Which is considerably more than you can say for the faculty and student bodies of a number of other campuses in this country. R. B. W., Jr.

BELL LABORATORIES

Functional" Tantalum Integrated Circuits As electronic systems have grown in size and complexity, t a n t a l u m integrated c i r c u i t s have reduced costs while increasing reliability and performance. To obtain even further integration of circuit functions, however, engineers at Bell Telephone Laboratories have used tantalum technology to build single thin-film components e q u i v a l e n t to networks of t h i n - f i l m resistors and capacitors.

NEW "FUNCTIONAL" CIRCUIT

The new "functional" thin-film circuit, shown in the above photo and in the drawing, right, is a two-terminal network consisting of thin films deposited on a glass substrate. For equivalent electrical performance, a conventional thin-film circuit would require at least three resistors and four capacitors (drawing, below).

GROUND DIELECTRIC' RESISTiVE FILM

EQUIVALENT CONVENTIONAL THIN-FILM CIRCUIT ^\

As an important contribution to the design of such structures, Bell Laboratories engineer Ralph W. Wyndrum, Jr., showed that it was possible to convert circuit performance specifications directly to tantalum thin-film patterns. Furthermore, he showed how appropriate geometries and film compositions could yield a wide range of impedance and transfer functions.

This new single, " f u n c t i o n a l " component (left) is basically a film capacitor with one electrode of resistive tantalum and a second electrode of conductive gold, separated by a dielectric layer of tantalum pentoxide. The component is made by depositing a thin film of tantalum onto a glass substrate, converting a portion of this layer to the insulating oxide, and then depositing the conductive gold electrode onto the oxide. In this arrangement, resistance and capacitance are distributed throughout the structure ratherthan among discrete electrical components. In addition to providing reliability and economy, this approach also offers the advantages of simpler fabrication and fewer electrical parasitics.

eemingly out of nowhere, a new dialogue sprung up on the Tech campus this fall. Perhaps, it was germinating around here for years, and those of us close to the scene were too busy to notice it. But with the beginning of the Franklin Foundation Lecture Series on the Humanities it became an exciting, living dialogue among students and faculty and it shows no signs of dying out anytime soon. From the beginning of the Franklin Lectures, turn-away crowds became the rule. Dr. Robert Hutchins (see page 6) started it , all with his provocative speeches of October 12. He was followed by Dr. Carl Hempel, Dr. Mark Van Doren, and Dr. J. Bronowski. All four men made a pair of major speeches and then spent the rest of their time on the campus in small discussion groups with students and faculty members. The discussion groups were lively and deep, and the question-and-answer periods, especially following the Hutchins' lectures, were as exciting as anything that has happened around Tech in a long time. One faculty member who serves on the Lecture Committee called the series, "the most worthwhile thing I have been involved in at Tech with the exception of teaching." The concept of a lecture series in the humanities grew out of the interest of Tech alumnus John 0 . McCarty, an Atlanta businessman who after attending a "Tech Today" series in which the lack of the humanities at Tech was discussed, decided to bring the program concept before the trustees of the John and Mary Franklin Foundation, a local organization interested in promoting educational programs. The trustees of the foundation were interested enough to give a grant to Tech for the first year of the program. This sudden overt interest of the Tech student in the outside world does not mean that Tech will soon be a university or that the name will be changed or anything like that. But it does mean that the student is changing much more rapidly than any of us cared to admit just a few months ago. Whether we like the change or not means little. It is here and the debate that rages between today's college students and the rest of us is a fact of life that all of us better recognize before the frustration that has suddenly become the mark of many of us destroys our appreciation of what education is really all about.

Mr. Hutchins, the one-time boy wonder of the educational world as president of the University of Chicago, is still the young turk at heart as president of the Fund for the Republic, Inc., and its Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. He was a big hit during his two days on the campus whether he was speaking with the smallgroups of students and faculty (above) or to the standing-room-only crowds at his major addresses (right).

here is an ancient Chinese curse: may you live in an inter^ ^ esting age. Since we live in the most interesting age since the dawn of history, we are cursed with problems greater, more numerous, and more difficult than any that aa ever afflicted any of our predecessors on this planet, ^ r Many of these problems result, oddly enough, from the progress we have made toward the goals that our predecessors have always cherished: the abolition of death, the abolition of poverty, the abolition of work, and the conquest of nature. We are in the position of the little boy who asked Santa Claus for a volcanoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and got it. Our situation always seems to change too fast for our ideas. Under these circumstances it is easy to become cynical about ideas, and especially about ideals. It is altogether likely, for example, that universal suffrage has strengthened the hands of ruling oligarchies throughout the world. It is likely too, that universal education has debased culture, for it has created a vast semi-literate market for debased cultural products. As a result of the reduction in working hours, great barren stretches have been created in our lives. Because of our wealth, combined with our leisure, we are beginning to show those signs of juvenile and adult delinquency which have been exhibited by the leisure class throughout history. For the problem of disease we have substituted that of population. The conquest of nature has turned out to be in every sense explosive, for it has put every city in the world within shooting range of every other, and given us at the same time the means of destroying all of them at one shot. Self-determination, the goal that we announced for Europeans during the first World War, has, when taken over by Asians and Africans, led to a global revolution that is just beginning and that will result in profound and continuous disorders for years to come. Thomas Jefferson based his hopes for American democracy on the proposition that we would not live in cities, that we would all be self-employed, that we would all be so educated that we could meet any new difficulties, and that we would be trained in civic virtue in local government. Now we all live in cities, we are all


The intenseness with which his student audience took in and digested every word Dr. Hutchins said was proof of his ability to hold the attention of any audience.

employed by others, our educational system is devoted to keeping the young out of harm's way until we are ready to have them go to work, and anybody who connected the ideas of civic virtue and local government would be sent to a psychiatrist. A Senator was telling me the other day that the legislative branch of the government had in certain areas ceased to legislate. He used the example of military expenditures. Even assuming that Congress could understand the enormous mass of technical detail that went into these appropriations, there was nothing it could do about them. If Congress increased the amount, the administration would impound the money. If Congress decreased the amount, the administration would reschedule its purchases. Yet the control of the purse is the traditional method by which parliaments have controlled the executive. It is the way they won their control in the first place. The aim of the West for the last 150 years has been to industrialize, and it is now the aim, in whiqh the United States is eagerly cooperating, of the entire world. Yet Eric Fromm, commenting on the social effects of industrialization, asks, "What kind of man, then, does our society need in order to function smoothly? It needs men who cooperate smoothly in large groups, whose tastes are standardized. And modern business has succeeded in producing this kind of 1 man. The meaninglessness and alien8

ation of work result in a longing for complete laziness in which he will not have to make a move, where everything goes according to the Kodak slogan—'You press the button, we do the rest.' The individual is introduced into the conformity pattern at the age of 3 or 4, and even his funeral, which he anticipates as his last great social affair, is in strict conformance with the pattern."

I ndustrialization and mechanization have altered the role of the individual in society. The purpose of industrialization is ultimately to get rid of men altogether except as consumers. But meanwhile those men who participate must be as interchangeable as possible. Interchangeable parts are necessary for any machinery, and, as man in the industrial system is a part of the machine, the object is to make him interchangeable, too. It has never been suggested that there was any place for original thinking or independent thought on the assembly line. In the same way the mass selling and mass advertising that industrialization appears to require in advanced countries aim at the interchangeable man. Suburbia, which is a product of industrialization and mechanization, aims at the interchangeable family. The family must be ready to be uprooted and transported at any time the interests of the corporation require it. The family that moves in

must be as adjusted as the one that moves out. The purpose of adjustment for the individual and of public relations for organizations is to achieve invisibility. We don't want to have to explain or discuss our differences. We want to be—or at least look—like everybody else. The gray flannel suit was a symbol of the desire to merge imperceptibly into the environment. It was like camouflage in war— there's nobody here but us Republicans. The aim of mass education is to provide the kind of people that industry is thought to require. Hence the popularly accepted object of education in America is to adjust the young to the group. Adjustment is the process by which one becomes an interchangeable man. Recent pharmacological inventions make it possible for us to remain in a kind of daze, and the popularity of tranquilizers suggests that this may be what we are seeking. We can only hope that these inventions do not become the monopoly of the ruling elite as Aldous Huxley predicted. He said that our present ludicrously crude methods of propaganda and brainwashing will give place to a number of really effective psycho-pharmacological techniques of inculcating and maintaining conformity. He foresaw great psychic energy commissions operating huge secret laboratories, dedicated not to our hopelessly oldfashioned ideas of mass murder and collective suicide, but to the more constructive tasks of man's definitive domestication and total enslavement. The Georgia Tech Alumnus


I am aghast at the Harwell Thinkometer, which by a system of buttons placed before each participant permits group decisions without the embarrassment of discussion. You press a button, yes, no, or maybe. The machine tells the group what it thinks. I am aghast at the Dynamucator, which is alleged to be able to teach you through your pillow while you sleep. Without any intellectual effort whatever you may learn to be an aggressive salesman, or to speak Russian. I am horrified by the Dial-a-Prayer movement, by which a machine performs your devotions for you, and you do not have to make any personal exertion to get in touch with the Deity beyond giving Him a ring. Industrialization, bureaucracy, the Cold War, and the hydrogen bomb may well produce a world in which conscious inertia is our aim, and the technical means of achieving it are within our grasp. But fortunately other forces and tendencies are at work in other directions. Some of them are inherent in the industrial system itself. It may be that our fears of a universal, torpid conformity are obsolete or that we can make them so. Throughout the advanced countries the proportion of the population working in industry is steadily declining. It is unlikely, for example, that the same proportion of our people will ever manufacture automobiles again. In England and America the shift into the service trades is proceeding at an accelerated pace. Industry is on the move toward its ultimate goal, the production of goods without people. This raises new problems as it has in agriculture, where half the number of farmers produces twice the volume of food that was derived from their labors just a few years ago. One shudders to think of the goods the industrial system could turn out if we were to stop wasting our resources on weapons. Harrison Brown predicts a fourfold increase in productivity per man hour in manufacturing and a ten fold increase in agriculture in the next fifty years. The advance of automation raises the question, what do we do with our goods? It raises a far more serious question what do we do with ourselves? As to the question, what do we do November-December 1967

with our goods?, though many countries need them, many do not. We appear to becoming a debtor nation again. We are having nightmares about losing all that beautiful gold in Fort Knox. As industrialization proceeds throughout the world fewer and fewer countries will have to import from us. We shall always be able to give things away, which is a better idea than turning them into arms that we do not intend to useâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but we may not be able to sell them. No matter what happens to foreign aid, a further drastic reduction in working hours is in prospect. If the war in Vietnam ever ends and perhaps if it does not, it seems likely that full employment must be abandoned. Leaders of both parties have not embraced guaranteed annual income or negative income tax as alternatives. Today unemployment means loss of money and loss of status. Suppose that we could eat without working, or working very much, and that it once more became respectable to belong to the leisure class, what would we do with ourselves?

suggest that the greatest opportunities in the history of the race await us all. They are the opportunity for everybody to become human and the opportunity to make this planet a fit place for everybody to live in. The realization of these opportunities, I will say in passing, requires a considerable change in our present place. It will also demand a considerable change in our attitude toward people who are not superficially attractive to us by reason of their color, language, or other un-American characteristics. After all, it is less than thirty years since we were willing to admit that the well-being of the underprivileged in our own country was a national responsibility. Eminent citizens of Chicago told me in 1931 that Federal relief of the unemployed would be socialism. We still do not admit that the education of the citizens of the backward states of our own country is of any interest to the rest of it, and in consequence the children of Mississippi get a far worse education than those of New York. Now it is one world or none,

and in one good world everybody is going to be responsible for everybody else. We are going to have to j think about equal opportunities for the people of Afghanistan and Peru as well as for those of Alabama and Arkansas. But the greatest change in our attitudes that will be demanded if we are to realize the possibilities of the new world that is opening before us is a change in the aims of our lives and of our communities and a consequent change in our notions of the aims of education. De Tocqueville thought that the necessity that the race was under to work for a living marked limits of intellectual improvement. That improvement depended on leisure, and leisure had to be the privilege of the few. The Athenians, for example, built a brilliant civilization, but they had to build it on slavery. The civilization, though brilliant, was therefore neither free nor just. If now the curse of Adam is to be repealed, an unprecedented era of leisure, abundance, freedom, and justice is before usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if our intelligence and character are equal to its possibilities. The great difference between the industrial system of today and that of the future could be that whereas today the machines dominate us, in the future we could dominate them and use them for our human purposes. We live now like the Turks of old, who were ruled by their slaves. The automobile determines the shape of our society. The assembly line determines the tempo of our lives. Military technology compels us to manufacture whatever can be made, whether or not we need it or can use it, and no matter how repulsive it is to our moral sense. But if the production of material goods ceases to be our main preoccupation, we can perhaps give some attention to thinking what we want and why. The Greek word for leisure is the origin of our word for school. Leisure to the Athenians was not time spent staring at television or driving aimlessly along the highway catching glimpses of the countryside between the billboards. Leisure meant the effort of the free man to develop his highest human powers and to make his city free and just. We have a new society and a new world. What we need are some new ideas. I will venture the broad generalization that no existing theory


hutchins -

cont.

of politics, economics, society, or international relations can explain or account for the facts of contemporary life. The crisis through which we are passing is first of all an intellectual one. If our situation has changed too fast for ideas, what we need to do is to re-examine our ideas in the light of our situation. In short, we have to think. First, while retaining individualistic liberal ideals, we have acquired a bureaucratic culture, to which these ideals appear inapplicable. All institutions, corporations, labor unions, political parties, and universities, are now bureaucratic. The centers of power are remote and inaccessible. The basis of decisions is mysterious and incomprehensible. All over the country, in every kind of organization, the cry goes up, "What can I do?"—and there is no answer. Next, while retaining an economic theory of the mindless mechanism of the market and a political theory of the nightwatchman state, we have become an advanced industrial society in which neither theory will work. This phenomenon is not confined to the United States: it appears everywhere in the West. Next, while retaining the idea that all technological development is necessarily good, and in any event not subject to control, we have a society in which uncontrolled technological development may lead to our being blown up, poisoned, suffocated, or trampled to death at any moment. If our enemies don't get us, our neighbors will. Next, while retaining the idea that the individual is politically active, economically independent, and personally creative, we have developed a society in which the individual is a consumer, job-holder, object of propaganda, and statistical unit. He no longer acts; he behaves. As HaTinah Arendt has said, "The trouble with modern theories' of behaviorism is not that they are wrong, but that they could become true." Next, while retaining the idea that the object of the economic system is to produce and distribute things that people need, we regard the economic system as an end in itself. At all, costs the industrial plant of the United States must be kept going. 10

The program is one of planned obsolescence. What are laughingly called "durable" goods are worn out or out of date by the time they are paid for. In the last recession as in the great depression the best advice the government could give us was to buy a car. We were not to ask whether we needed one. Whether or not we needed one, it was our duty to the economic system to buy one. We have been lost in admiration of the "economic miracle" of Western Germany. There, of course, outright destruction by enemy action worked much faster and better than the relatively desultory method of planned obsolescence. What brilliant prosperity we could enjoy if we could only blow up everything every few years!

f

inally, while retaining the idea that education is the development of intellectual power and universities are centers of independent thought, we have built an educational system suitable to the production of consumers, jobholders, objects of propaganda, and statistical units, who will keep the industrial machine going. As a random sample, I offer you the following announcement from the catalogue of a college in California: "For Freshmen and Sophomores, Hope Chest 61-A and 61-B: three units each. The object of the course is instruction about buying silverware, appliances, linens, etc." This is not education. It is at best induction into the folkways of the tribe. A girl in the course for beauticians in the Syracuse Technical High School spends five periods in homemaking, five in driver education and applied science, two in physical education and twenty in the beauty laboratory, doing manicures, shampoos, permanent waves, and whatever else the esoteric mysteries of this science demand. Suppose this girl, fourteen or fifteen when she enters this course, changes her mind. Suppose that alterations in technique or style have modified the business, or even swept it away by the time she graduates. Suppose that self-beautification for ladies has become as simple a mat-

ter as it is for men. What would the poor girl have left with which to face the atomic age? But there is an even more serious objection. This is the education of a slave. It is suitable in every detail to the training of a bondwoman as a personal maid in a primitive tribe. It is not the education of a free citizen of a society that hopes to remain free. It is barbarous. And we have to think. We have never had to think before. We were powerful, isolated, and impregnable. This is why American education is what it is. We have not needed education for individual success—the financial giants of the past often boasted of their illiteracy—or for national power and progres. We had tremendous resources and a fine constitution handed down to us by founding fathers who, as it happened, were magnificently educated. We have thus been able to live on our intellectual capital. We can do so no longer. What automation requires, what the international situation demands, what the new world and the new society call for is an enormous increase in the intellectual power of the nation. This also is the answer to the question, what are we going to do with ourselves? The notion that education is a kind of housing project in which young people are detained, or retarded, in which they learn to get along with one another, and to get ahead of one another in a nice way, and from which they emerge as adjusted, but enterprising, well-tubbed citizens, ready to team up with their fellow self-seekers on the American assembly line—this notion is a relic of an ignorant, benighted past that is now deader than the dodo. We must now begin the construction of an educational system devoted to the development of intellectual power. And we must commit ourselves to the idea of continuing education throughout our lives. Education is not like the mumps, chickenpox, measles, or whooping cough, a misfortune endured in childhood, which you need not, indeed cannot, have again. Education is the continuous development of our highest powers. In the United States we have the resources, we shall have the time, and we should be able to muster the intelligence to build a civilization as brilliant as the Greeks, and far more lasting.

he arrival next fall of Atlantan James Dickey as the Franklin Foundation Poet in Residence for the quarter will make the Tech campus poet-rich for the first time in its history. The institution has had its own poet of constantly-growing national stature since 1955 when Dr. Larry J. Rubin joined the English faculty. Rubin received his first national acclaim in 1961 when his poem, "Instructions for Dying," won him the coveted Reynolds Award as the best lyrical poem of the year. In 1963, the tall, slender Floridian's first book of poetry, The World's Old Way, was published by the University of Nebraska Press. Now in its second printing, this book earned Rubin the Sidney Lanier Award from Oglethorpe College and the Literary Achievement Award in Poetry from the Georgia Writers Association. It also was responsible in part for his receipt of the John Holmes Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of New Hampshire in 1965. Lanced in Light, his second book of poems, was published two months ago by Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc. And on October 10, the associate professor of English was named "Georgia Poet of the Year" by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists. But Larry Rubin remains first and foremost a teacher. Last year, he lectured on American Literature at the University of Bergen (Norway) under the Fulbright International Exchange Program and in 1961-62 year he taught at the University of Krakow (Poland) through a Smith-Mundt Award. On his teaching at Tech, Rubin says, "The practical nature of the technical fields presents a temporary barrier to the average student's whole-hearted acceptance of the humanities. But this same practicality eventually leads the student to the realization of the value of the liberal subjects to his survival and advancement in his profession and to his understanding of life. When this happens, the Tech student does exceptionally well in the humanities. And as a teacher, I believe that it is my job to see that it happens to the highest possible number of students on our campus." The recent growth of interest in the humanities among Tech students is proof that the Larry Rubins have been doing their jobs. On the following pages, the Alumnus presents six selected poems from Lanced in Light, illustrated by Tech photographers. November-December 1967

Afternoon

Rolling off the freeway, the football crowd Got tangled with a funeral, diluting Death till only the hearse could find the road. The cars with lights got lost amidst the rush To kickoff time, and whether some lucky Mourners found themselves in bleacher seats The Sunday papers never said. Absence Is a minor thing, at funerals. Yet touchdowns aren't really less eternal. Tackles fall and ovals fly, yet something In the autumn air isn't like a game. The cheers roll on to victory, the poles Come down, the hero slides off the shoulders Of the crowd. Somewhere above the stadium The shouts dissolve, and all the players dash Through a little door, hidden in A cellar wall. Beyond the line of scrimmage An early dusk means headlights must go on, All the same. Some may have missed the first Handful of dirt, but there was sod enough Upon that measured field; only buried Captains know how many cubic yards. Š 1963 by Larry Rubin.

The Gift of Time Within the dimension that lingers, that curves its flight Like swallows in their season, that rolls about In globes of dark and light, always returning The river to its source, the sun to its home In an older star, something dimly rests, Perfected like a stillness within time, A holy center where the flame is not Consumed. This is the gift of time, the vault Which holds the core of all that lasts. The girl Who fled the motions of my arms, my father's Fear of calendars, the very time It takes to read a poem—all unravel into Simple strands of light that feed the flame. The river changes in its course, the swallow Nests and dies, the sun descends to spheres Unknown to earth; yet nothing can be missing From that frozen pause, the floating eye Of every storm that paralyzed a clock. This is the gift of time: dimensions die. November-December 1967

It hasn't been so long. Without a tie I can bluff my way and pass as one of them. The years roll back, and they feel free to talk Of girls, and how to hand in themes that look Original.

And rain will blossom at the end: atoms Of an older age, cracked, necrosing, Steering rigidly to earth, in chains Descending for the final dip, dissolved.

The ice on your windshield, The cold lace at your ear— A wind through your household, Combing winter's hair— One ear's hot and one ear's cold. (Our lady walks naked on the eggshells.) One foot's cut—the blood's congealed. (Take the straw from that infant's stall.) The ice will turn to flakes of pearl, The lace will split your ear; The shells adorn the gates of hell— (But those hands bleed, my dear).

Preparation There will come a day when colors Will interest you less, And shapes, And textures of all sorts— Not so much the daffodils, Or surfaces of skin, Not even the moon rising wet From melted waves Within the silver curvature of sea; But you will show increased concern With wind, Remembering its emptiness, Merely air in motion, not to be believed Except by its effects: The stirring of the saw grass, Or a placid group of petals Entering a dance; A line of spray blown against the beach Or something cool against your cheek: With every breath the mysteries of wind Unlocking voids, melting with the mind. © 1965 by Larry Rubin.

The gesture-filled speaking styles of Dr. Hempel (left) and Dr. Bronowski (right) were a perfect contrast for the soothing approach of Dr. Van Doren (above) who spent much of his time on the campus autographing copies of his books for new friends. The Georgia Tech Alumnus

.^^ philosopher, a poet, and a mathematician-scientist ^^^ famed for his literary efforts followed Dr. Hutchins ^L during the October and November Franklin ^^^^^L Foundation Lecture Series. The first, Dr. Carl G. ^L JB Hempel, Princeton professor of philosophy, told Tech students that modern man finds himself in the peculiar position of having to turn to science, itself, to learn what to do with it. The second, Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Mark Van Doren, read his poetry and discussed its meaning and his own philosophy of life. The third, Dr. Jacob Bronowski, currently a senior fellow of The Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the initiator of the discussion of the two cultures with his talks at M I T in 1953, talked of science and human values. The three men gave two lectures each to packed houses of students and faculty and then spent most of their two days on the campus in serious discussion groups with the members of the Tech family. The stimulation of these sessions carried over into the dialogue that has begun to change the Tech student's attitude to the outside world. While at Tech, Dr. Hempel talked on "The Relationships Between Scientific Knowledge and Moral Valuation" and "Limits of Scientific Knowledge and Understanding." Speaking in a rapid German accent and punctuating his remarks with vigorous gestures, he told capacity crowds that natural and social sciences must distinguish between scientific fact and explanation. Chemistry, history, sociology, and other fields of science involve casual relationships of function, purpose, meaning, and motives. "These relationships assert certain general laws which are based on years of research and observation," he said. "Therefore, nothing can be proven absolutely without accepting these basic postulates." Hempel also contended that science is limited only by time. "Given an infinite amount of time," he said, "there is.no limit to what man can solve." Hempel went on to say that the problems of today do not only concern scientific and technological problems but ethical problems as well. He emphasized the countless benefits wrought by science November-December 1967

He pointed out that since we obviously must seek solutions to these overwhelming problems, it is necessary to evaluate the means available to us for solving our dilemmas. This raises the all-important question: can the methods of science provide solutions to such problems of moral consideration? Hempel's answer is a qualified yes â&#x20AC;&#x201D;science can provide the answers up to a certain point. This is where the so-called value judgement comes into play. According to Hempel, "Science can tell us how to get to a particular place, but it cannot tell us where to go." What is needed, he stressed, is a comparison of alternate goals. In deciding among various courses of action, we must consider all the available relevant empirical facts, or scientific inquiry; consider the courses of action; consider the possible short and long range consequences; consider the probabilities of certain things happeningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then let our personal set of values swing the balance. Then he said, "In other words, we assign more weight to this than to that." But is there any kind of scientific investigation that would enable us to determine whether those value judgements are true or not? "Arriving at a solution," Hempel contends, "involves presupposition of certain facts; some judgement of value must be accepted without proof. Incomplete information is basic to all decisions. If a set of standard values could be established, we still could not make all our decisions purely scientifically. Even if we could agree on what ought to be maximized, it would not provide decisions, only constraints. In making a value judgement, there is a point at whiSi you must stop and accept what is not proven; one eventually has to take a stand." According to Hempel, personal evaluations seem to be based primarily on ideas and feelings absorbed from our society and, most particularly, from certain subgroups, like the family, church, neighborhood; and school. "What is orderly and\ 20

proper in our society is one of the major factors affecting our value judgements, as is the intelligent use of the maximum available relevant information." Definitions of terms are not the same for all people, presenting a major difficulty in achieving unanimity of judgement. Hempel asserts that no opinion polls, for example, can decide what is really good. The consideration of questions of empirical fact, or scientific inquiry is basic to making value judgements; but Hempel reminded his listeners to remember that all scientific ideas were originally accepted only "until further notice"; if this qualification is disregarded, the "facts" become senseless dogma. Hempel is perhaps best known for his "Deductive or Covering Law," which is described in an article in the new Encyclopedia of Philosophy. According to this law, "the occurrence of an event is explained when a statement describing that event is deduced from general laws and statements of antecedent conditions; a general law is explained when it is deduced from more comprehensive laws (or theories)." The preceding idea, of course, formed the basis for the ideas set forth by Hempel at Tech. Dr. Edward H. Loveland, professor and director of Tech's School of Psychology, was once a student of Hempel's when he was teaching at Queens College in New York. Loveland remarked on Hempel's continued vitality as a teacher, even after twenty years or longer, and marveled at his old teacher's ability to transmit complex ideas in such a clear, concise way. Dr. James A. (Jimmy) Jordan, star halfback for Tech from 1946 to 1949 and now in the Philosophy Department at Emory, remarked that he had "all kinds of good things to say about Hempel. He is a scholar of great standing who does first-rate, high-grade work." Jordan said that anyone who was acquainted with philosophy at all could not help encountering the thoughts of such a great thinker. Hempel appears to be a cautious optimist in a pessimistic world. He, like Dr. Robert Hutchins, who preceded him as a lecturer at Tech, seems to feel that people today might be likened to the small boy who asked for the moon and got it. We

are floundering around aimlessly, wondering what to do with this awesome knowledge which we ourselves have unleashed. Perhaps, before the trend is irreversible, "a burst of creativity" will turn the tide for the good of mankind. Life would be so much simpler if A did always lead to B; but, since it doesn't, Dr. Hempel's more complicated combination of vision, imagination, and open minds must be the formula for a better world.

P

p erhaps Dr. Hugh Moore of Tech's English Department summed up best the impact of Dr. Mark Van Doren's visit to the campus. "By his poetry readings and incisive comments, by the range, depth, and wit of his answers to questions, and by the charm and graciousness of his personality, Mark Van Doren provided the best possible argument in favor of the liberal arts. And he saw in the student something we have often lacked the perception to seeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; an interest in poetry. It was good, if somewhat startling, to hear him say that poetry was at home at Georgia Tech. If this is true, and I hope it is, Mark Van Doren can take much of the credit for making poetry relevant to us. Dr. Van Doren wrote me that the courtesy and interest he found here were unique in his experience, and that he was deeply impressed. We, too, were deeply impressed with him and grateful to him for spending his time with us." And Tech News Bureau Chief Mary Wilkie recorded these impressions of the visit of the famed, former Columbia professor who now lives in retirement in Connecticut. Upon meeting Dr. Van Doren, it is hard to believe that he is seventythree years old. He has a youthful, boyish look, a crown of thick white hair, and brown eyes that twinkle in a multi-lined face. But the words of wisdom which spill forth when he speaks could come only from a man who has lived long and known much of life. Van Doren grew up on a farm in Hope, Illinois, whose population (as of 1962) was thirty-four. Hope's sister villages, Faith and Charity, long ago gave up the ghost; and, as Van The Georgia Tech Alumnus


Doren himself said while at Tech, " T h e r e seems to be little hope for Hope." T h e Pulitzer Prize winning poet is still writing his poems at a leisurely pace, and just out is a new anthology of his best-loved poems written throughout his long career. T h e book entitled, Mark Van Doren: 100 Poems, was published by Hill a n d W a n g in both paperback and hardcover editions. Van Doren is currently not working on a n y prose. H e says that he writes in spurts, though h e m a y store away ideas for future poems over a period of three or four years. H e doesn't do much rewriting and finishes his poems quickly once the muse strikes. H e no longer reads criticisms, as he finds them "a waste of time." H e feels that today's poets a n d playwrights are writing more a n d more about less and less. W h e n someone suggested t h a t perhaps modern m a n was left with nothing more to say, he objected immediately a n d said that, if that were the case, no one would have bothered to write anything after Shakespeare was through. Van Doren first became motivated to write poetry by reading the poems

of William Wordsworth, whose "Resolution a n d Independence" is one of his favorite. Robert Herrick is his favorite lyrical poet, and h e expressed admiration for Keats, Robert Frost, and Carl Sandburg. Of Sandburg, he said, " Y o u read his book, a n d you realize t h a t although he's doing nothing b u t quoting other Americans, somehow or other h e has composed that work." Frost, in contrast to Sandburg, "has never tested the temper of America, but he presents a composite 'portrait of a n American.' " Van Doren is especially fond of Emily Dickinson, who, h e once said, " h a d all the experiences possible to the h u m a n spirit, but she h a d them in one house and she h a d them without ever going anywhere." Van Doren and his literary friend Archibald MacLeish maintain a mutual admiration society and, in 1962, appeared together on a onehour television special entitled " T h e Dialogues of Archibald MacLeish a n d M a r k Van Doren." T h e material for this program was based on two days of casual visiting a n d informal conversation between the two men and later was published in book form. Van Doren said h e h a d been in-

troduced to Atlanta's own poet, J a m e s Dickey, a n d is an admirer of his poems. Dickey will become Tech's Franklin Foundation " P o e t in Residence" for one quarter beginning next fall. Van Doren considers the parentchild relationship to be the m a i n theme of his poetry and thinks it is even the primary vein throughout all literature. H e mentioned that children serve as a stabilizing, restraining influence and that perhaps MacBeth a n d his wife might not have been capable of killing had they been parents. Van Doren's love of children and his sensitivity to their feelings are reflected in his " T h e Child at Winter Sunset," which tells of a little girl and her father watching the setting sun. Van Doren himself had a h a p p y childhood. " I think most people are h a p p y , " he said. " I know t h a t I'm h a p p y . " T h e desire to explain why h e was h a p p y once, m a n y years ago, led him to write one of his favorite poems, "Undersong." I n this poem, he proposes t h a t the origin of things was possible in terms of music and t h a t there is a kind of harmony t h a t runs through the particulars of the universe and binds them together. " U n d e r s o n g " represents a music that underlies phenomena and is understood by the mind. H e likens the rhyme scheme of " U n d e r s o n g " to t h a t of the classic poet, E d m u n d Spencer. H e advises a young person who thinks h e just can't write another poem to choose a special line scheme of a poet h e admires a n d set himself the exercise of reproducing the same form with his own content. " T h e n , " he says, "you will discover that you have something to say. T h i s illustrates a greater t r u t h — t h a t we need a form available for us to use in thinking, saying, or doing . . . a form in which the artist finds himself free." During one of Van Doren's poetry readings at Tech, he read a series of what h e loosely termed, "love poems," although he pointed out t h a t h e spoke of love of a variety of things and persons. H e pondered the idea t h a t perhaps a love or existence is stated in all literature, thus indicating t h a t the universe is worthy of being analyzed a n d described. Another of Van Doren's favorite poems, " H e Loves M e , " is about the most staggering discovery one can m a k e — t h a t God loves him. " T h e dis21


thfcee men- cont. covery that you are loved," says Van Doren, "is more overwhelming than that you love. God loves us by definition, by tradition, and in my own belief. No one is completely alive unless he loves; the world would be incomprehensible otherwise." Van Doren is disturbed about the status of education in the world and criticizes especially graduate education as being too specialized and narrow. He thinks education should make students reasonably well-informed in many areas, enough so that one would not go around excusing his ignorance by saying, "I know nothing about that subject because my field is such and such." In commenting on the changes from one generation of students to another, he once remarked, "Students are very much alike at all times." He personally hopes the world will remain unintelligible and that all things will never be known. "Men are condemned to be unsatisfied -in their efforts to know all; we learn things one at a time. There is no end in sight." Forty or more years ago, Van Doren wrote "The Translation," wondering how we would feel if we lived in a world that was going to be replaced by another one. In it, he speaks of the ants and toads, the crickets and mice, whose "skies will fall" and whose "world will drop its blue" when the time of mowing comes on the morrow. "The world in which we live grows more and more fascinating to me," Van Doren said. "It grows in some aspects more horrible, but it is the ONLY one. The men I admire most are those who haven't given up."

\ ' n effervescent and imposing twentieth century "man for all seasons" was the final lecturer in the Franklin Foundation Series for the fall quarter. Dr. J. Bronowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;mathematician, biologist, philosopher, historian, economist, sociologist, and writerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was once aptly described as "a man preoccupied with man in all of his complexities." At Tech, he focused on scienceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how it is carried 22

out and what values are required in order that a scientist can go about his work. "When people talk about science," he said, "they always talk about it as though it were a system containing no value judgement." He then contended that no progress can be made in the argument about value judgements until people divorce themselves from what has been discovered and concentrate on how discoveries are made and the requirements for making them. "Today," he told one Tech audience, "I want to talk about the community of scientists and what holds them together. When a discovery is made, there it is; it's true. By and large, the discoveries that are made are true. If you're a liar, you don't want to make scientific discoveries. You aren't interested in whether they are true or not." In discussing what has changed in the scientific world during the past 400 years or so, Bronowski mentioned that the ranks of alchemists in the middle ages were full of people who made a perfectly good living

pretending to be scientists but selling a lot of lies. "In the world today," Bronowski stated, "if you're supporting a profound end which you value, the means you use must be absolutely clean. "Modern science actually began in the fifteenth century in the humanist movement when many documents of Christianity were found to be forgeries. This led to revulsion and disillusionment in Florence and Rome and other cities and changed the attitudes toward religion. Since science has come into our civilization, truth has been the most important guiding value." To substantiate this contention, he said that if he received a printed paper about something in mathematics, which had been written in Peking or Los Angeles or Atlanta he would simply believe what it said. He would say to himself, "The man is telling the truth as closely as he sees it." If, on the other hand, Bronowski received a newspaper, there would be only a very limited amount of that paper in which he could place absoThe Georgia Tech Alumnus


detail is just as important as being truthful in the large. That is responsible for the success of science. That is why I can usually believe the printed scientific paper from Peking or Los Angeles or Atlanta. I place absolute trust in what the man says." Bronowski mentioned Michaels' and Morley's ether drift experiment of 1887 in which the results were so unbelievable that scientists continued for 20 years to coriduct experiments on the same subject. They were not pointing accusing fingers at the experimenters, who had made the discovery or calling them liars; they were simply trying to remove doubts about the result and make sense of what had been found. It may be significant that the experiments provoked a reevalution of the laws of physics because the finding showed all our conceptions of life to be not only wrong but self-contradictory. "The remarkable thing about the whole matter," according to Bronowski, "was that prominent scientists, like Einstein, trusted Michaels and Morley and based the next 20 years' work on trying to prove or disprove their findings.

lute trust. He provoked a laugh from his audience when he stated that he thought the financial and sports pages were the only truthful portions of American newspapers. "All the rest," he said, "have to be regarded with the gravest suspicion. They do not deliberately deceive, but they think that they are, on behalf of a greater faith, putting out things that are not quite true but will have the right influence." Another ripple heralded his statement, "In our country, this is called the credibility gap." Unscientific thinkers, according to Bronowski, reason that you know what is right and it doesn't matter what means you use; you're going to support it. "So," he said, "people are liquidated, crucified, and put in concentration camps. Why? Because the end justifies the means. "Science is exactly the opposite. It makes absolutely no distinction between ends and means. The end of science is to discover the truth, and the means to be used have to be truthful in the smallest detail. The moment you say this, you have November-December 1967

Dr. Hempel's hold on his audience was never more noticeable than during the conferences with the small groups of students where there was considerable dialogue between this renowned scholar and top students.

founded an ethical value for science. You have placed one central ethical value in the activity of scienceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;finding the truth, and find the truth by truthful means." Bronowski cited the case of a scientist who won a Nobel prize for his discoveries but was eventually proven wrong. However, the man did not fade away in disgrace and is still prominent in scientific circles. This is the case, because he did not deliberately set out to fake documents or experiments. Bronowski stated emphatically, "You cannot practice science without a profound ethical commitment to the notion that being truthful in

"Truth is the nexus that holds the scientific community together. Being able to trust the other man is the absolute foundation for doing work yourself. Science is a communal enterprise. It cannot be done without the help of other people who make instruments for your measurements or people who have written earlier papers on which you rely. And you must be able to trust them absolutely. This explains to us how, in the short time of about 300 years, we have made such remarkable progress in science. We didn't have to spend all our time suspecting that someone was trying to put one over on us. When someone said something, you could go on from there. In 300 years, you can go an enormous distance if you march in a straight line; but, if you're always zigzagging, avoiding the untruths of this, and the propaganda of that, at the end of 300 years, you're just about where Charles II was in 1660, namely governing his people by a mixture of flattery and threat." He then raised two questions: "Is it really possible from the years of science, to get an ethic?" and "Ought we to be using science for the purposes that we do?" To illustrate his point, Bronowski 23

Dr. Bronowski talked about the influence of science on present personal ethics as well as on social ethics both during his speeches and during his meetings with the small groups of students and faculty.

thnee men- cont. cited the familiar argument in which a man says: science tells us what is true. What is true can't possibjy give you any instructions about how you ought to behave. Therefore, there is a gap between is and ought which nothing can bridge. "That," says Bronowski, "is a very classical, philosophical argument and one of the few philosophic arguments which is widely known to non-philosophers. It's an absolutely ridiculous argument. I don't mean that what it says isn't true; it just doesn't happen to apply. The man is answering a question which we never put to him. We are asking a question about human beings and how they ought to behave. Now he says, you are only scientists; you only know what is true." How do we know what is true? "Because," continued Bronowski, "we behave in such a way that we discover what is true. It is discovered by human beings exactly as ought is produced by human beings. You cannot discover what is true until you know how you ought to behave." Bronowski reasoned that if one doesn't follow that ought, then science is impossible as an activity. "It's not only that science is based on telling the truth," he continued, "but if there were not other perfectly good reasons for telling the truth, science would actually have to invent this as a method." Bronowski recounted his experi-, ences immediately after World War 24

II when he was in Japan in connection with his work as Scientific Deputy to the British Chiefs of Staff Mission, and was researching his noted report, The Effects of the Atomic Bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He was hampered in his work by the difficulty he encountered in eliciting factual information from the Japanese people. They came from a very polite society in which it was extremely important not to offend the person to whom you were talking. He said, "If I asked how many people in a block, the man questioned would reply, 'Many.' How many? 'Very many' . . . and so on. If I suggested the number 200, he would immediately reply, 'Exactly!' This was not because he was dishonest; it was because he had been brought up in a tradition which taught that the very worst thing he could do to me was to imply that I was a liar. In science you don't want to be told that you're an honest person if you're not honest. The culture of the West is based on the idea that truth is the foundation for policy." Bronowski remarked on the fact that, during World War II, the German doctors, with so many unfortunate people to carve on, did hardly any successful split-brain experiments. He attributed this failure to their belief that policy had to be based on knowledge. They were caught in the Nazi tradition that what fear didn't believe wasn't knowledge. As Bronowski said, "What was the good of doing an experiment which showed that Jewish brains

were just like all the others, when the Fuhrer had already said it wasn't true? "On the structure of science has been built the personal ethic, and more than anything else, the social ethic. The thing we can most learn from science is the way a society works so easily together when complete trust exists between everybody. Trust as a communal method of carrying out science has been responsible for the success of science over the last 300 years." Bronowski's last major point concerned the present tradition in science. He noted that many scientists today are working on discoveries which are terribly open to abuseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; things such as nerve gas, biological warfare, napalm. However, he remarked that if one doesn't want to work on atomic energy or nerve gas, there's no compulsion to do soâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except human weaknesses, from which scientists suffer like everyone else. Bronowski mentioned the recurrent suggestion that we ought to call a moratorium on research or perhaps cease to publish scientific discoveries. On the whole, the scientific community has been deeply opposed to any such proposal, feeling that people are much more afraid of science prejudging itself than of some answers coming out that can be badly used. Bronowski stated that "If we once enter the notion that there are things which should not be published, then we are back to a kind of secrecy, suppression of the truth, which science has not practiced and which everyone is much afraid of. We are afraid of losing the actual tradition of free discussion, free arguments, and free agreement. We want the population at large to say what to do with scientific findings; we don't want to say in advance that the population is so stupid that they are bound to use it for bad ends." However, he added that this attitude of scientists carries with it a great duty on the part of the scientist to create an educated public which will use what is discovered for what the public decides is the good. Bronowski concluded by saying, "The findings of science are simply facts that change from time to time; they have nothing but a content of fact. But they can only be found by a profound ethical conviction that truth is the worthy pursuit of human beings at their noblest." The Georgia Tech Alumnus

ARRison Tech may be on the way up in more ways than one but according to the president there is something missing at the undergraduate level

t -l

November-December 1967

he uniqueness of the Georgia Institute of Technology has always been in its scientific and technological orientation. Within this framework, the Institute's function is to sustain up-to-date, technologically oriented programs of the highest m quality in undergraduate education, graduate education, & and research. This objective involves the discovery, correlation, presentation, and transmittal of knowledge. And it also encompasses the translation of this knowledge into useful and appropriate services to the people of the state, region, and nation. Looking back over my ten years as president of the Institute, I am amazed and pleased at the dramatic changes that have occurred in every segment of the operation of Georgia Tech. But the greatest source of pride to this administration is the fact that the Institute has been able to satisfy its prime function despite the rapidly changing technological and scientific world which is our sphere of operation. No period in the history of man can match the years since the first Sputnik for technological change. Whole new concepts growing out of the age of space have been introduced into the curricula of our colleges and this is especially true of the colleges of engineering and science. The advent of solid state circuitry, the fantastic development of computers, the coming of space travel with all of its technical demands, the introduction of maser and laser, and the unbelievable explosion of other knowledge have forced all of us to constantly reevaluate our curricula and course content. Today, we are teaching courses, in fact, entire programs, that were not even thought of a decade ago. Fortunately for all of us, the leadership and faculty of prior Georgia Tech administrations had anticipated this rapid change. Just over a decade ago, the Institute embarked on a program of quality improvement for both its undergraduate and graduate programs. Prior to my arrival on this campus, the Institute had already announced that the entrance requirements, particularly in the sciences and mathematics, would be moved up in steps over a five-year period. This was done in order that the undergraduate curricula could be modernized to keep up with the growing demands 25

of business, industry, government, and the universities for graduates possessing educational foundations oriented much more to the sciences and mathematics than those of the past. I might add that the fact that Tech made this move was a significant factor in improving the quality of Georgia's public high schools, many of which did not offer the fourth year of English, the physics, the chemistry, or the mathematics courses which Tech required. All of them, of course, still do not offer these courses and for good reason: they cannot economically justify it without consolidation. But at least the schools in the metropolitan centers, that could and should have been doing it all along, have moved in the right direction. One example of the strengthening of the curricula which has taken place in the past ten years is tffe fact that present-day beginning freshmen start at the same level in mathematics at which students studied in the sophomore year in 1959. So between 1959 and today, Tech has moved ahead one whole year in undergraduate mathematics. I believe that the present undergraduate student body and the undergradu-i ate curricula are equal to the best in 26

any of the state-supported institutions in the country. The Institute has made its greatest improvement during the past ten years in the quality of the faculty and in the graduate and research areas of activity. This improvement was made possible by increases in both state support and outside funding. Doctorate programs are now offered in most of the engineering disciplines and in the physical sciences and mathematics. During the last five years the graduate enrollment has increased rapidly. This past fall ii. reached 1,373 whereas in 1956 it was only 320, and in 1962 just 543. In 1967 we awarded 56 Ph.D. degrees and 312 Master's degrees, while just five years ago we awarded only 13 doctorate degrees and 172 Master's degrees. Tech has now awarded 65 per cent of all of its doctorate degrees during the past five years. Along with the growth of quality and quantity of the graduate programs over the past decade there has been a corresponding expansion in research activities, also through increased institutional funding as well as increased outside support. The total expenditures for all budgeted research for the 1966-67 year were $8,298,800 as compared to $4,100,000 for 1961-62 and $2,150,000

for the 1956-57 year. Effectively, this means that Tech's research has just about doubled every five years for the past decade. During the same time period the activities of service to the people of the state, especially through steppedup industrial development and continuing education programs, have had a corresponding increase. The Industrial Development Division of the Engineering Experiment Station was in its first year in 1956-57 with a $100,000 grant from the State for its organization and operation. Today, this group has grown to one with a budget of $840,000 and has acquired a national reputation for its efforts in behalf of the industrial growth of the State of Georgia. The Continuing Education Department of the Engineering Extension Division showed an even greater growth. In 1956-57, it conducted a total of 12 short courses and 11 conferences, while this year the equivalent figures were 136 short courses and 28 conferences. Among these conferences were two of international importance â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Gaseous Electronics Conference and the winter meeting of the American Crystallographic Association. Throughout this year, as for the past ten, the technical curricula were The Georgia Tech Alumnus

revised by reducing the amount of purely descriptive material and by eliminating some of the outmoded traditional shop-type courses. The material which replaced these courses stresses a more thorough grounding in the humanities as well as a more thorough and more advanced emphasis on the fundamentals of science and mathematics. It is my belief that the product of these technological curricular revisions will be an engineer, scientist, architect, or manager able to adapt readily to new concepts and new fields as they are developed. And he will also have enough practical knowledge that with a reasonable period of orientation, he will be able to serve industry capably at the operating level. The fact that Tech's placement operation is one of the busiest in the country testifies to the wisdom of this constant revising and up-dating of the curricula. Now for the future of Georgia Tech. Each year, we notice that the high school graduates who arrive on our campus are improving at a slow but measurable rate. An increasing number of women are showing an interest and adaptability for entrance into the scientific and technological fields, especially in those fields relying heavily on mathematics. But our problems are not yet solved. Both November-December 1967

the graduate of the four-year program and the one who holds a graduate degree must be taught to develop the spark of creativity and imagination to accomplish the best performances. Creativity, a laudable trait, cannot be acquired by giving each student a completely free hand, nor can it be developed by the removal of all restraints as some would have you believe. There are certain areas in which being creative is a highly dubious achievement. One could not well be creative with the multiplication tables or with spelling while using scientific facts to achieve the proper results. But the application of creativity to basic knowledge in the solution of technological and scientific problems is the goal toward which all our graduates must work. We are told, also, that conformity is loudly criticized and our students must not be conformists at any cost. This, too, is a great over-simplification of fact. All of us must conform in many ways in life. In this country we must drive on the right side of the road or disaster will result. We must stop at the red traffic light for the same reason. Bank robbery is still frowned on in our society as is murder. May I add, too, that observing the Ten Commandments is still the basis of our civilization. Some conformity is therefore an essential need in our lives and is of great assistance in the development of personal mental discipline. Our secret for tomorrow must be the development of the creative talent in each individual, encouraging the use of initiative and a boldness of approach to the solution of the problems the student is asked to face. This student of the future, in order to be successful, must have had adequate preparation; he must possess an inherent motivation for accomplishing his task; he must have a capacity for work and, I might even add, physical stamina. College is hard work. This is especially true where each course has been selected carefully to make a pattern which will culminate, upon graduation, in an educational background suitable to the individual's professional aims and responsive to his civic and community responsibilities. In guiding the student through this process, we must be careful not to engage in overemphasis on amateur counseling either in the choice of

the college which he attends or the program which he selects. Enforcement by his parents or by Uncle Joe or Aunt Martha of a mandate to select this or that specific program or college usually ends in disaster and heartbreak. Since it is our obligation to furnish our student with a sound, scientific, mathematical, and humanistic social background while developing creativity and conformity (in some respects) , you might logically ask how is this to be accomplished. There is a keyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the teacher. We know whether the scope of the basic scientific and technical background is adequate. We add as much as possible in the humanistic social areas to this formal program, but the final success of our venture rests with the ability of the individual teacher. Outstanding teachers are as difficult to find as are outstanding people in any profession or vocation. The ideal teacher must be constantly aware of the pupil's progress, his interest, his ambitions, and his limitations. The ideal teacher must be able to explain with patience and lucidity those things which the student finds difficult to absorb. The ideal teacher must demand reasonably good performances from all pupils, being careful to challenge the most capable while not discouraging the least capable. Generally, even the best teachers will find it difficult or impossible to change a student's inherent personality traits, such as a reluctance to think, slovenly performance, downright laziness, lack of pride, or the urge to finish a job and be done with it whether it is performed to the best of his ability or not. By precept and example, the ideal teacher does his best to instill a sense of capability in each pupil and an abhorrence of the attitude that second best is good enough. The ideal teacher will challenge each individual in his classes by requiring him to attempt the solution of problems he has never seen before. Generally, the student is led from easy problems to those of increasing complexity and difficulty. In technological education this is done by putting emphasis on the relation between experimental data and basic scientific knowledge. Simple design problems, for example, can show this relation and build in a student confidence in his ability to move from 27


of depth in the humanities areas, this type of a degree program would also serve to strengthen these offerings within the existing curricula. Tech is now losing close to 40 per cent of its entering freshmen before they graduate. Many of them fail because they do not possess the intense interest in our existing programs necessary to survive. But many other leave because Tech does not have a program they can turn to although they want a Tech degree and no other. These students have superior college board scores. The overwhelming majority of them are from the top quarter of their high school classes. But they find out after they arrive here that they do not want to pursue the narrow technological specialities offered here at the undergraduate level. And most of these students go to other colleges, many of them out of the State of Georgia, and are lost forever to this state and region. I believe that it would be far better to save them by offering them a program in a broader area, a program completely consistent with the high standards of Georgia Tech.

the theoretical to the practical while acquiring a great respect for and confidence in his acquired basic scientific knowledge and his ability to use it intelligently. Thus, the student develops a positive attitude and a confidence to approach successively more difficult problems. As I see the future of Georgia Tech, engineering will continue to be the most important single discipline. Areas closely related to engineering will be expanded. The undergraduate curricula will continue to undergo revisions in keeping with the changing needs of the times. The high level of excellence of the undergraduate programs, long the hallmark of Georgia Tech, will slowly but steadily increase as the quality of available students desiring Tech's programs increases. But there is something missing at 28

The World Student Fund, originated by Tech students almost 20 years ago and still operated by the students, is a perfect example of both his creativeness and practicality. Tech at the undergraduate level. I am convinced that the Institute must provide an undergraduate degree option for students who desire a broader education in the engineering sciences, social sciences, basic sciences, and humanities than is possible under our existing curricula. Perhaps an undergraduate degree in the humanities, with a technological orientation as suggested by the two most recent self-study reports of the Tech faculty, is the answer. Tech is now the only major technological institution without a program of this type. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the California Institute of Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Lehigh, Rice University, and all of the leaders in our field have long had such programs. With engineering and science majors constantly under criticism for their lack

With the help of the State of Georgia through the Board of Regents, Georgia Tech has been able to plan and begin construction of a campus that will eventually provide the total environment for study and research unlike any in the past history of the Institute. We intend to continue to present our case to the State through the Regents and we will take every opportunity to interpret and promote this institution with those other agencies which have the resources available to bring in the excellent equipment, to furnish the additional facilities, to promote research in keeping with our goals, and to furnish financial aid for the exceptional students who have need of such support. But Georgia Tech remains dependent on private support. It was the support of the alumni that made possible the planning program that resulted in the new $24,000,000 land expansion program. It was the support of the alumni that made possible the current student aid program. And it was the support of the alumni that has helped build the faculty up during trying times. It is you, the alumni, who have made Georgia Tech great and the Institute's future will rest in your hands just as has its past. The Georgia Tech Alumnus

NEWS FROM THE CAMPUS Freshmen Unprepared to Choose COLLEGE FRESHMEN, flooding campuses

across the country each fall, may be adequate scholars, but the majority of them are unprepared to make a career decision on registration day, according to a Tech study. The transfer phenomena occurs with frequency on the college campus. Students switch from one field to another and move from university to university. Tech's Office of Evaluation Studies has recently completed an intensive investigation of the career motivations of entering freshmen. Under the direction of Edmond Marks, the study indicated that a sizeable portionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; roughly 45 per centâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of the students who participated in the study reported their chances of remaining in their present major were 50-50 or less. At Tech the problem is extensive. Over the past few years it has been observed that roughly one out of every two enrolled students will change his major at least once. Some change twice or more. The Tech study aimed at investigating the goals of entering freshmen and their reasons for selecting a particular major. Eight per cent of the respondents said that they were practically certain they would transfer. At the other extreme, 20 per cent of the group felt certain they would not transfer. The study revealed marked differences in the two groups. Most of the potential transfer students were looking for a career with external, visible rewardsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;income, security, etc. The potential non-transfer group was more concerned with intellectual stimulation, the freedom to be creative, and the originality offered by a career. As

a group, they had been certain of the choice of a major longer, made higher college grades (despite comparable scholastic ability), and participated in more career-oriented activities than the potential transfer. These students were not particularly concerned with high income and security. The Tech study attributes transferring to two major factors, poor performance and educational and career uncertainty. The latter may not be an unhealthy reason since the personality, wants, and goals of many freshmen are still evolving. According to Acting Dean of the General College Sam Webb, who headed the Office of Evaluation Studies when the research was done, students entering college exhibit some anxiety about selecting a major. Some might benefit from sampling several career alternatives. Students must choose a major when they register at Tech, but a large number of freshmen said that selecting a major had been a problem for them. More than two-thirds said that they had little to only moderate amounts of information relating to their choice of careers. The potential transfers said their choice of a major was often a "best guess." When students were asked about the person who influenced them in the selection of their majors, the majority said "no one." Small percentages listed "father," "high school teacher," or "friend." But the high school counselor emerged near the bottom of the list and was checked by only two per cent of the students.

Ga.'s Economic Picture AMY COLLINS of the Industrial De-

THE SECOND COVER

The Ramblin' Reck Parade is the one phase of a Tech Homecoming that is positively unique. This year Pi Kappa Phi won first place with Sigma Chi and Chi Psi coming in second and third. And the fourth place went to the first remote-control, electronic Reck in history, sponsored by IEEE. Sigma Chi won the Homecoming display competition with Phi Gamma, Delta, second, and Lambda Chi Alpha, third. 30

velopment Division has authored an economic report, "Industrial Development in Georgia, 1958-1965." This study reveals that a trend of over half a century reversed itself around the beginning of this decade when Georgia became a net in-migration state. For the first time in this century, enough jobs were available to handle not only Georgia's increasing population, but to attract residents from other states as well. According to the report, 81,000 more people settled in Georgia than left the state between 1960 and 1965. The consequent employment rise boosted Georgia's total income, and the state's percentage of the U.S. per capita income showed an increase. If this trend continues, Georgia's proportion of U.S. per capita income is expected to rise to 82.5 per cent in 1985, as compared to 78.6 per cent in 1965. The IDD report states that, surprisingly enough, the gap in actual dollars will actually widen. In 1965, Georgia's per capita income was $2,159 compared with $2,746 for the U.S., a difference of $587. If the trends since 1959 are continued to 1985, this difference will widen to $690. One cause of this dollar gap, according to the Tech analysis, is the continuing predominance in the State of low-wage industries. Georgia ranked tenth in the nation and third in the Southeast in net manufacturing employment increase between 1958 and 1965, but a high proportion of this gain was in low-wage industries. I n 1965 nearly 60 per cent of the manufacturing workers in Georgia were employed in four low-wage industries, compared with less than 26 per cent in the nation as a whole. Consequently, the average production wage for Georgia is approximately $25 per week less than the U.S. average. The low-wage industries should continue to be recognized as an essential part of the State's economy, but Georgia needs to balance these jobs with a dynamic increase in the more sophisticated higher-paying industries, such as metalworking and machinery. The report suggests that this problem may be solved by requiring a stepped-up, long-term effort by the State to upgrade the educational system, to train or retrain its workers, and to attract top-ranking industries and researchoriented facilities.

Fall Enrollment Sets New Record ENROLLMENT set a new record this Fall Quarter. According to William L. Carmichael, Registrar and Director of Admissions, the total for the 1967 fall registration was 7,655 students, representing an increase of 306 over last year's record. The enrollment of graduate stuThe Georgia Tech Alumnus


dents was also a record—1,208—136 more than last fall. Of the 1,930 new students registered at Tech this fall, 1,457 are freshmen, 246 are graduate students, and the rest are transfers.

Themis Projects Awarded Tech TECH was among eight schools in the nation which received two major research contracts under the Department of Defense's Themis Project. The Institute will receive about $175, 000 annually for research performed under each of the two contracts. It is expected that these projects will be supported for a period of three to six years. The $20.5 million program is aimed at strengthening the nation's universities, increasing the number of institutions performing research of high quality and achieving a wider geographic distribution of research funds. The DoD received 479 proposals from 171 colleges and universities for Themis contracts and only 50 programs were approved. Project Themis funds at Tech will be used for research in the areas of "Low Speed Flight" under the direction of Dr. Robert L. Carlson, professor of aerospace engineering, and to establish an interdisciplinary research program on "Interface Phenomena in Engineering Materials," directed by Dr. Edwin J. Scheibner, Chief, Physical Sciences Division of Tech's Engineering Experiment Station. Low speed flight research studies will include fluid mechanics, structural dynamics, and aeroelasticity. Scheibner's group will study the phenomena occurring at the interfaces between different materials or between different phases of the same material. Although attention will be oriented toward materials of practical importance in engineering, the program is intended to contribute knowledge of the basic phenomena as well.

"Mini" Reactor Acquired A NUCLEAR training reactor, recently acquired by Tech, should be in operation soon after the first of the year. According to Robert L. Zimmerman, Radiological Safety Officer for Tech, the new reactor has a maximum capacity of 100 milliwatts. This is only one fifty-millionth of the power level of Tech's large research reactor which has been in operation almost three years. The training reactor will be installed in the new facilities of the School of Nuclear Engineering which are currently under construction. "The smaller reactor will be used primarily for training students by the School of Nuclear Engineering," said Professor F. W. Chambers, Jr., who 31


C H â&#x20AC;&#x201D;CDNTINUEE will direct the operation of the new reactor. "Most student education can be handled by the new reactor," explained Chambers. "This will take the instructional load off the larger facility and give students more opportunity to work with a reactor. The newly acquired reactor is designed so students can use it with a considerable degree of safety." In the past, experiments carried on at the research reactor have been interrupted for graduate student studies. But the larger reactor will still be used to some extent for student research, according to Chambers. The reactor, designated AGN-201, was acquired from the University of Akron. The small training reactor is especially designed for low cost, maximum safety, versatility and high sensitivity. It measures 10 feet high and seven feet in diameter, and is self-contained. It is fueled by seven pounds of slightly enriched uranium.

Two Buildings On The Way Up GROUND

WAS

BROKEN

for

the

new

Chemistry Building on October 9. The building will be located at the corner of State and Fifth Streets and will cost approximately $4.9 million, a record expenditure to date for a single building on the Tech campus. According to Dr. James A. Stanfield, Professor and Assistant Director of the School of Chemistry, it will be the most complicated building on campus from an electrical and mechanical standpoint. This structure is only the first stage of the complex eventually planned. The completion date is expected to be August, 1969. Governor Lester Maddox spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony and was introduced by Chancellor George Simpson of the University System's Board of Regents. Tech President Edwin D. Harrison was master of ceremonies. The Governor was also principal speaker at the groundbreaking ceremonies for the new $2.4 million Engineering Experiment Station facility located at the corner of State and Eighth Streets on November 7. Chancellor Simpson.and President Harrison also took part in the program. The new E E S building will house the administrative offices of Dr. Wyatt C. Whitley, Director. It will also house the Physical Sciences Division, one of the top research divisions of the Station. Dr. Whitley reports that, "This is the second building of the proposed Engineering Experiment Station Com-\ 32

plex, which will be located in the northwest segment of the expanded Tech campus. The first was the Electronic Research Building, completed in late 1965. A total of 28 acres has been allocated for this new complex. The new facility will make it possible to expand the programs of the Physical Sciences Division." Completion is set for April, 1969.

Neelys Give Tech Fifty Acres MR. AND MRS. Frank H. Neely, prominent Atlantans and long-time benefactors of Tech, have given Tech approximately fifty acres of land in Gwinnett County. The development of the area is expected to be an evolutionary process, initially becoming an arboretum and later evolving into a surveying work area or an expanded center for recreational facilities for the students. It was also announced at the Foundation Board meeting that the Rich Foundation was giving $35,000 to Tech to purchase additional computer equipment for the Rich Electronic Computer Center, which it helped finance in 1955. Mr. Neely is a member of the Board of the Rich Foundation and is Chairman of the Executive Committee of Rich's, Inc. In addition, Mrs. Rae Neely is giving to the Institute funds to remodel the Neely Room of the Price Gilbert Memorial Library and to provide an appropriate setting for the collection of commemorative medals and rare books donated by her husband. Miss Eleanor Le Maire, of New York City, will direct the remodeling of the Neely Room. Mr. and Mrs. Neely were responsible for the establishment of the Neely Visiting Professors' Fund, which made it possible in recent years to bring to the Tech campus approximately 100 outstanding engineers and scientists from all over the world. Neely was the motivating force behind the development of the Frank H. Neely Nuclear Research Center, which was initially backed by a 2.5 million dollar grant from the State of Georgia. Neely has served since 1932 as a Trustee of the Georgia Tech Foundation and was graduated with the Tech class of 1904. Mrs. Neely was made an honorary alumna due to her efforts on behalf of Tech. In remarking on the Neely family's most recent generosity to the Institute, President Edwin D. Harrison stated that these latest contributions collectively represented the most significant gift ever received by Tech at any one time from any one living benefactor. "This is another indication of the Neelys' continuing interest in Georgia Tech and higher education, and of their true citizenship in the community."

Trust a Texan like Herb Stier to describe the life insurance business as a challenging new territory just waiting to be explored! But Herb's a man who should know. After college, he spent seven years in retailingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;then joined Mass Mutual in 1965. A single year later, he ended up with more individual life policies to his credit than any other man in the company ! Total sales... $ 1,789,974! "It's a great business to be in," says Herb.

And you can be highly creativeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you're free to put your own ideas, your own imagination to work where you think best. "What's more, with Mass Mutual, you've got a great company behind you. You know, a lot of companies offer all kinds of help at the outset, but darned few are ready to commit the time and money that's really needed to get you on your feet. The people at Mass Mutual really put themselves out to make you successful. "And let's not forget the personal rewards. Both my wife and I agree that we've found more in the way of friendship, pride of accomplishment, all-'round satisfaction than we'd ever have found elsewhere. Not to mention far greater financial success! "If these are your goals, too, I'd suggest you write Mr. Charles H. Schaaff, President, Mass Mutual, Springfield, Massachusetts 01101.

Artist Peter Sawyer was chosen to do the series because of his unusually fine, free technique which has won him national recognition as an award-winning watercolorist. His style and a special familiarity and fondness for this subject have enabled him to capture in these three paintings the very essence of Tech. Each full-color scene, measuring 1 1 " x 14" is masterfully hand rendered (NOT a printed reproduction) on the finest watercolor paper, signed, and matted on heavy stock ready for framing. The very low price of $9.95 per set of three (or $4.00 each) is possible only as an introductory offer by the COLLEGE WATERCOLOR GROUP, a gathering of expert watercolorists who seek to create the widest possible appreciation for the medium of watercolors—and to introduce you, reacquaint you, or renew your delight in the marvelous, spontaneous, and refreshing world of watercolors.

Success never eluded Charlie Spear but his most lasting satisf actioi has come from his association with New England Life. Charlie was president of his class at Northeastern University, played on the hockey team and was an outstanding student of mechanical engineering. As a sales engineer, first with AlMsChalmers and then with Mobil, he had become a sales supervisor of a seven-stateterritory when he resigned to join New England Life. "Although I had been on the escalators of promotion, it took this business and its professional

sales approach for me to find real career satisfaction," is the way Charlie sums it up. When he made his move he was 38 with a wife and 5 small children, and was living far from his home city of Boston. He continues to live and thrive in Wausau, sau, Wisvvi: consin, and gives testimony to the fact that a C W man can make his own rVl way in this business, and on his own terms.

LUCK WAS NO LADY THIS ^ EAR The Jackets were sailing along undefeated and playing mob scenes like the one above when Kim King went down (left) against Clemson and started the injury syndrome of the third win of Bud Carson's first season as head coach at Georgia Tech, the gods who watch over such things as football teams began to turn on the Jackets and once committed they never again let up. The Jackets had scored convincing, although not spectacular, wins against Vanderbilt, 17-10, in Nashville, and TCU, 24-7, at the newly-expanded Grant Field, when they came up to their first big test of the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on October 7. Tech won this one, 10-0, on a great defensive effort by the entire Tech unit and on the running and passing of Kim King, but King was injured near the end of the first half and a trend began that doomed the DURING THE COURSE

52

team to a 4-6 season, worst since Bobby Dodd's first year in 1945. At Tennessee, Tech started Larry Good at quarterback and the junior injured his knee in the first period and his elbow in the second, and King came back in only to be reinjured in just eight plays. Good continued despite a great deal of pain and brought Tech back from a 24-0 deficit to a 24-13 loss mainly on the strength of two long throws to flanker John Sias. In this game Tommy Carlisle reinjured his ankle and was in and out of the lineup for the rest of the season until he went down for good in the Miami game. Mike Ashmore and David Barber, along with Carlisle, Edmunds, and Eastman the The Georgia Tech Alumnus


heart of the Tech defense, were also injured in Knoxville and Buck Andel's weekly list of the walking wounded began to look like a World War II casualty list. Sans King and Good, the Jackets went against Auburn on Grant Field in the fifth game and Ken Bonifay started as quarterback after being out all fall with a knee injury. On the second play, you guessed it, Bonifay's knee gave way and the number three quarterback was through for the year. Enter number four Bobby McKinnon who really was about number six or seven as the Jacket defense is loaded with ex-quarterbacks. McKinnon had a bad afternoon so number five, Jim Person, came to the rescue. Person hit Sias for 65 yards to put Tech in front, 7-6, in the first period. But Auburn came roaring back with a passing attack of its own to beat Tech. 28-10. During this afternoon. Person also suffered a serious injury (to his shoulder) and went to the hospital for an immediate operation. The following week. Carson moved Bill Eastman to quarterback, knowing that he was robbing the defense

of its best back. Eastman took a half to get accustomed to his new job and by that time, the Tech team had committed a series of errors in a fiveminute span that enabled Tulane to score 16 points and go out at the half with a 23-0 lead. Eastman rallied the Jackets in the second half but the best they could do was score 12 points to lose, 23-12. Eastman came back against Duke to lead Tech to a 19-7 win but again it was a costly one. Carlisle went down again and Mike Ashmore joined him not to return until the Georgia game. Eastman scored the first touchdown on a busted play from the Duke 16 in which he fumbled the ball, scooped it up and ran around the wrong side for the score. Tommy Carmichael added a pair of field goals and Tech was in front, 12-0, with one play left in the half. That final play was something else again and again indicative of the kind of a year Tech was having. Duke quarterback Woodall threw a bomb to end Carter in the end zone. Three Tech men were in the area and hit the ball away from Carter into the hands of end Hysong who

FOOTBALLâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;cont. half the Irish were in front, 21-3. Actually this one was a lot closer than the score and set the stage for what all those folks who follow Dooley's Dogs were calling the "second battle of Little Big Horn." Tech had to go into this one without Snow, Carlisle, Mike Bradley (who did a great job filling in for Carlisle against the Irish), Claude Shook, Jimmy Brown, and all of those assorted folks hurt during the season. In the long, proud history of Tech football, no group of men could possible have given more of themselves than did the tattered remnants of this 1967 team during the first daynight singleheader ever held in Grant Field. Underdogs by some 17 points, Bud Carson's men spotted the Georgia Bulldogs 14 points in the day segment and then roared back to win the nightcap, 14-7. There are those who will call this a moral victory for the Jackets but they have to be wrong. It was the final chapter of tragedy that began its course on October 7 and continued to build towards this game as if it were scripted 54

by Sophocles. And in its unfolding, it proved that Leon H. Carson is a football coach, a man capable of learning from his mistakes and, of even more importance, possessed of the ability to get more of his men than they have within them. Carson, who has taken each loss including this one, as his own responsibility, gave his troops all of the credit for this final superb performance, saying, "The more I think about the game the more I get back to the same thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; I'm proud to be associated with a group of men who in spite of adversities that plagued them all year could lift themselves to play the game they did today." The large television audience and the 53,699 who watched this "Cocktail Bowl" got their money's worth. The Bulldogs managed a quick 7 points the first time they got the ball. After a 37-yard punt return by Jake Scott, Georgia drove 34 yards in 8 plays with fullback Jenkins going in from the 2 and McCullough adding the point. At this point it looked so easy that fans on both sides were figuring the odds-makers were coming up short on the point spread. But

Tech dug in a couple of times and then in the second period moved from its 26 to the Georgia 5 where King missed a first down by inches on a measurement that featured some fancy ballhandling by the officials and a broken chain. The Bulldogs came right back with a bomb that covered 66 yards and McCullough's point made it 0-14. Tech cut it to 7-14 in the third period on a 56-yard drive with Larry Good going in and Tommy Carmichael adding the point. But Georgia reprised early in the fourth with a crunching ground drive that put the Bulldogs back in front, 7-21. Tech retaliated with a drive of its own during which Dennis James scored to cut it to 14-21, and then missed on the final chance when tormentor Scott intercepted a King pass with less than minute remaining. Next year began to look much brighter for Carson when Bill Fulcher's freshmen whipped the Bullpups, 14-0, on Thanksgiving Day in the annual Scottish Rite Charity Game. The Baby Jackets never allowed the Bullpups across the 50 until the final period and played defense like they had invented it. The Georgia Tech Alumnus

It's a good system if you like it There are slots. Slots need people to fill them. Someone exists who was born and educated to fill each slot. Find him. Drop him in. Tell him how lucky he is. Look in once in a while to make sure he still fits his slot.

This orderly concept has much to commend it, plus one fault: some of the people most worth finding don't like it. Some very fine employers have not yet discovered the fault. It is not up to us to point it out to them. Luckily for us, we needn't be so tightly bound to the slot system. We can offer choice. A certain combination of the factors diversification, size, centralization, and corporate philosophy makes it feasible to offer so much choice. Choice at the outset. Choice later on. Choice between quiet persistence and the bold risks of the insistent innovator. Choice between theory and practice. Choice between work in the North and South. Choice between work wanted by the government and work wanted directly by families, by business, by education, by medicine, by science. To the extent that the slot idea helps channel choice we use it, of course. A corporation such as this is one means of coordinating the strength of large numbers of effective persons. You may feel that in the years ahead this type of organization must change. You may feel that it must not change. Either way, to get a chance to steer you have to come on board. Advice to electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, chemists, and physicists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; still on campus or as much as ten years past the academic procession: while one starts by filling a slot, it soon proves more fun to make one. No detailed list of openings appended herewith. Next week it would be different. G. C. Durkin is Director of Business and Technical Personnel, Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, N. Y. 14650.
