May 5, 1970 The first regular meeting of the newly-elected Student Government Association Senate was held today in Room 108, Building A , with six officers and fifteen, senators attending. The meeting was called to order at 12:15 by President Jerry Berndt. President's Re ort. Mr. Berndt reported that a second student mrmb~rhas been e l e c t e d h e ERA1 Board of Trustees. This second member shall be appointed by the SGA President. He, along with the SGA Pr~sident,is a voting member of the full Board of Trustees, which mFfts oncf a yea], and are visiting members of the Executive Board of the Boa~dof Trustfes, which meets once a month. Mr. Berndt then swore into office Terry Miner, the newly-elected SGA Pr~sident, who in turn swore into office the newly-elected Executive Board and Senators. Mr. Miner appointed Second Vice President Paul Eddy to be the second student member of the ERAI Board of Trustees. Dean Spears reported that the privilege of having women has been revoked until such time as the Dorm I1 Council initiative to function adequately. As soon as the Dorm some responsibility, the privilege.wil1be restored and might be granted.

May 12, 1970 The second regular meecing of the newly-elected Student Government Association Senate was held today in Room 208, Building A, with f3ur officers and twenty senators attending. The meeting was called to order at 12:05 by Speaker of the Senate Terry Owens; the minutes of the previous meeting were accepted as written unanimously. Mr. Deissler reported that the Registrar's Office is -onsidering changing diploma suppliers and asked if the SGA would like to make r~commendations for changes in the format of the diplomas. A motion to set uo a committee for this purpose and to have a representative from the new sun-lifr meet with this committee was approved unanimously. President's Re ort. President Miner, along with S~condVice President Eddy, was attendin&xecutive Board of Trustees1 meetina. First Vice President Stephen suggested that the SGA might give awaras of rfcognition to outstanding academic and civic-minded students, similar to the University of Florida's Blue Key Awards. He also stated that a new trouhy casF and bulletin board are needed in the Student Center.

Treasurer's Report. A $65.50 entry should have been typed as $65.00: the report was accepted after correction, 20 for, 1 abstaining. New Business. John Delafosse stated that "incomplete" grades and "no grade reoorted" are converted bv the computer to "F"'s. Before these F's are chHnged to a regular grade once the work has been completed, the grade report listing the grades as F is sent out from the Registrar's Office. Those students whose grade-point avorages drop to probationary level as a result are also sent a letter informing them they are on academic probation. These letters most often go to the student's home address, and it is frequentiy difficult for a student to explain to his parents that he isn't really on probation. Mr. Deissler stated that a considerable amount of time is spent each trimester correcting this situation and other mistakes made in data processing. Grades are sent to whatever address the student has listed as his home address, since that is where most students are over the break. Students over 21 may change the home address listing if they choose. The entire matter was referred to the Student Conduct and Grievance Committee. Dennis Krol reported that the Summer Blood Drive will be held June 5.

8EE WHAT STUDENTS CAN DO In May 1968 at the AIAA Student Conference in St. Louis,North Dakota State's student branch achieved first prize in the undergraduate technical paper competition. Shortly after returning to Fargo, they also received notice of their category B second place award in the National Bendix competition. Certainly a remarkable performance when one considered that this represented the first serious attempt at such a presentation on the part of the branch. Consider the circumstances surrounding this success. In all, there were sixteen student members in the AIAA North Dakota State branch and only three of these in the Aero option. This then is truly a Cinderella story NDSD, the Mets of the North. Like all Cinderella stories, it began once upon a time in the far cold north otherwise known as Fargo, N.D.

our story opens at the first AIAA branch meeting in the fall of 1968. The students suddenly had become starkly aware of a serious and continued irritation. Thev were tired of 30-minute movies as time fillers. The only action associated with their branch activities up to that time was the Le Mans start following the meeting a point all too clear. Boredom! Healing this wretched malady was really quite simple; they decided they should do something interesting. And so it was suggested, ''Why not enter the AIAA technlcal paper,, competition in "But we have st. LOUIS. never entered such compethey tition before," wailed. "Why not now" cajoled the advisor. "And compete v:i th all those big schools!" they appealed. "of course" he insisted. The experience would be rewarding no matter what the outcome, and so they decided that they would. indeed compete.

Next item on the agenda was also simple. What would be the subject of the presentation? In order

to involve as many as possible, it should he a team project. Whatever project embarked unon. resoonsibiiities-should'be s;bdjvided according to engineering teams. -with a project engineer and chief engineer assigned to each team they could then approach the matter as a systems study and develop their experience with an appreciation of the difficulties of coordinating engineering team activities. A radio-controlled drone became the final selection It was 'felt that this would fully exercise their abilities as Aero engineers and enable them to put into practice what they had learned academically. Something of interest would be provided for all. It permitted them to carry through their design to completion and gain experience building hardware and testing what had been until now theoretical studies. If the drone was to be useful, it should be able to carry an instrument payload of approximately 20 pounds. Now this required an over-all aircraft weight of the order of 40 pounds. Design teams were selected in two major departments, responsible to the student elected as project engineer. One aroun was the Mechanical Department which included hardware and electronics teams. The second group was the Aeronautical Department consisting of a

configuration team, an Aerodynamics team, and a structural team. Every member was included also on the construction team. Each team would be responsible for their own area in cooperation andcoordination with all other groups. For some weeks virtually nothing was accomplished. Every one seemed to be going around in circles, not knowing where to start. After suggesting that they assume something a great lesson had already been learned, i . ~ ., it takes less time to correct a false assumption than to simultaneously coordinate sixteen individual minds. So the assumptions were made and, after three of four cycles through their organization, the configurati3n began to emerge. The result was a twinboom, twin-engine aircraft of about 10 ft. wing span. One of the cardinal features maintained throuohout the design phase was the implementation of professional engineering design techniques. This was not to be merely a large model airplane but must truly be a proper englneering exercise to its conclusion. Thus, the design proceeded as would be the case in the design of a full-scale airplane, to the best of their ability. For example, a complete hinge-moment analysis was made of all surfaces in order to make certain the push-rod loads on the servo mechanisms would not be cont. next page

I SEE WHAT STUDENTS CAN DO CONTINUED the test pilot applied continuing back-stick in an effort to hold the nose up, but to no avail as the down elevator gradually fed in. The aircraft nosed over and was destroyed. Eighteen hundred man hours down the drain. Yet, when asked what would be done now, they replied without hesitation, We will rebuild it." They took the remains back to the Aero lab and began that very night. Reconstruction is continuing even now, and' should be finished before long. Needless to say, the radio has been carefully checked out and the frequency moved to a less crowded channel. With these test results in hand, all sixteen members left the next day for St. Louis. What happened there is now. history and how very important that trip has proven to be. First, to the students individually, the personal interest and care shown to them by their parent oraanization and McDonnellDouglas, along with the other sponsoring companies made a iasting impression. It had all been worth it.. They were not mere students in an Aero club, they were promising Aerospace engineers associated with a viable and concerned AIAA. That spirit was brought back with them and has helped to re-energize our students, faculty and program.

.

Recognition of this kind can do wonders. Success in St. Louis obtained for them the necessary funds to buy materials and to rebuild their airplane. Upon their return, they also asked again for a small grant of funds from the student activity council funds which now were granted even though their request had been refused before the St. Louis Conference. Nothing succeeds like success, an2 this has been certainly no exception. Posters were prepared and placed around the North Dakota State University campus announcing both the Aero program and promoting AIAA and its activities. With this

-

high spirited promotional program, the AIAA branch and the Aero oroaram in mechanical engineecing developed a considerable amount of interest on campus and throughout the state. Interest began to grow in the community because of the exceptional achievement on the part of these students. Furthermore, Dr. Pfister's faith in AIAA and the Aerospace program has been vindicated. The aero option of mechanical engineering now constitutes about a third of the mechanical engineering enrollment, thirty students, rather than three. Thus, it is clear .that AIAA's program is not only effective but can be a very important part of maintaining interest in aerospace studies. The critical question in everyone's mind should be how was it all done? Certainly not with money. Certainly not. with great numbers in a large student branch. Certainly not because there was a larqe active Aero program in the Engineering College. However, it is evident from the branch activities that the interest in Aerospace and AIAA was there all along, for the program was indeed successful and there are now thirty students where before there were but three. Only by first generating interest and demonstrating meaningful accomplishment could these students be expected to believe that there was in fact a viable and interesting program available. AIAA provided that initial promotional interest and became the focal point of that interest. Prior to last year's successful AIAA branch activity and promotion, the Aerospace program was seriously in doubt at North Dakota State University. In one year, it has risen again like a phoenix as a major option in the mechanical engineering program. The College of Engineering has committed itself to the remodeling and refurbishing of the Aero laboratory. As you can see, the faculty is not only proud of their Aero students but appreciative that through their efforts attentibn is being given

Page 13 to the Aerospace If one ingredient is to be distilled from this episode describing its success, it would have to be "ENTHUSIASM:" There is nothing which fosters success like enthusiasm, and there is nothing that will turn it off more quickly than boredom. Enthusiasm, like Cinderella's glass slipper, is very fragile. It grows on the dreams of' meaningful achievement, and if stifled, will soon die along with its hopes for results. The faculty plays a very delicate role in this whole operation. They must be the catalyst which guarantees that this reaction will take place. They must provide motivatio~r, interest, and the guidance necessary to insure the forward movement of the program and its ultimate success. If we are not interested and galvanized by our chosen profession, how can we expect more from our students? Nevertheless, the faculty must be extremely careful. If they provide too much guidance, it becomes direction and the students are robbed of a feeling that the success is fully theirs. If they provide too little guidance, the program will suffocate, soon dying of its own lack of movement. For this Cinderella story, the ball is over with the glass slipper unbroken. It has the kind of happy ending that all dreams are made of. The wonderful thing is the Aerospace studies and the AIAA programs can honestly provide real student achievement, of that kind that enables one to grow both in its technical engineering ability and his ability as a human being. The ball may be over but there will be others each year with their new problems, challenges, opportunities, hopes and ambitions for yet other Cinderellas. But do not forget, Cinderella was a very hard worker: Such is the exciting nature of our where the sky profession is just the beginning.

The AVION would, in this issue, like to focus its' spotlight on the first two SGA members.

Paul was recently selected to represent the school at the Southeast Aviation Trademart in Greenville, S.C. Other activities include: Sigma Chi Delta Brothers; Air Science Representative to .the Flight Council and Chairman of the Coordinating Committee for the Veterans Association. Kinda busy, Paul:

This will be a new policy of the AVIDN, in which we will attempt to acquaint the students with their elected representatives. The AVION will highlight two representatives each issue. SUSAN A PECK Congratulations go out this week to Sue on her successful election to the office of Senator.

Sue wants to get involved in the dorm activi-, ties and we are sure that she will be a worthwhile contributor.

Pop Vocals by the University of Tennessee's Susie Walcher and the University of South Florida's Mike and Nancy will highlight the program when Daytona Beach area people get together for Sunday night's FIFI PRESENTS concert at the Volusia Jai Alai Fronton.

Miss Walcher has been signed by Playboy Clubs for extended engagaments at their night spots across the country after finishing high in the standings of this year's Intercollegiate Music Festival national competition. She has been featured with some of the top rock bands in the Southeast and regularly sings on telecasts in her native Knoxville, Tennessee.

This is Sue's fourth trimester at Rnbry Riddle and she feels that every student should take part in the activities of their school at least one time in their academic career.

Activity wise, Sue has been a member of the Embry Riddle Veterans Association for one year and currently holds the position of Vice-President. In addition, Sue is a Naval Reservist stationed with the unit at NAS Jax.
