News and Views Of Student Council by Kim Bawden The newly elected officers of the ASSOCiatedStudents of Montana Tech Were installed in their offices at the Student Council meeting held May 10, 1972. John McCarthy is the new president; John Likarish vice president: Coleen Ward, secretary; Tad Dale, delegat~ A; Tom Hohn, delegate B; Mark Bossard, justice A; and Gary Munson, justice B. Tad Dale was selected to be the sergeant at arms for the council meetings, while Tom Hohn was selected as the parliamentarian. Among other business taken care of before the installation, was the acceptance of the final draft presented by the business office which will assume the handling of student funds for 1972-1973. For this service, the Student Council will pay the business office $600.00 per year. The constitutional amendment voted on in the MDay elections was passed with 214 votes for and only 13 against. , The golf team requested that $100.00 be taken from the baseball fund so that the team could attend a tournament. The Stdent Council approved this measure; furthermore, it appropriated the additional $32.50 from the general fund to make up the balance needed for the tournament. The next order of business was the banquet for out- . going Student Council officers. The banquet, held Monday, May 22, 1972, was held at the Acoma. Montana's proposed constitution was the next subject for discussion. A request that the Student Council urge the students at Tech to support the new constitution was revised so that the Council is only urging all students to read and consider the proposed constitution and to make an effort to vote on June 6. The M..Day election was contested by Wayne O'Brien. :rhe reasons for his contestation were that the polls were not opened during the hours stated in the Constitution, and that the polls were moved during the noon hour. The justices rules that these changes had no effect on the election.

Seniors' Agenda A father-son banquet will cut the tape for this year's graduating seniors. The dinner will be held June 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ramada Inn. Reservations for the dinners must be .rnade at the president's office by May 30. The next day seniors not-toounder-the-weather will meet at the Finlen Hotel at 1:00 p.m. for the senior luncheon. Class pictures will follow on the same day at 3 :00 p.m. in the Museum Hall. Costume of the hour wil be caps and gowns. Then they'll rehearse. On Saturday (June 3), again in the Museum Hall immediately following the pictures, the seniors will practice for the big night. June 4 at 3:30 p.m. is the senior's final hour. Processional will form in the library beginning at 3:15. Caps gowns, seniors and faculty should all be present by this time. Mrs. Fiskum will collect the rented gowns at the book store after the seniors are launched. Unless there's some mighty fast progress on the SUB (which is about as likely as President Nixon ending the war), reception will be held in the gymnasium right after commencement.

Chess Tou rney Held in SUB A perpetual chess lateral tournament is in progress at 12:00 Monday through Friday in the SUB. An individual does not have to attend Tech to participate in the tournament. The Chess Club meets every Monday at 7:00. The oficers include president, Jim Williams and vice president, Marilyn Campbell.

Ie Recruits At High. Schools Tech students in the departments 'of Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Environmental Engineering are working on a special recruiting program of their own. Coordinating the effort are Greg Sheridan, John Green, John Beatty, Diane Kitto, and Bill Suydam. The last four are leaders of the History Club and Literary Society. The first phase of the campaign involved letters to counsellors in the 400 high schools in Montana requesting names of students interested in going to college. The second phase is to send out letters to each student expresing interest and another letter to his parents pointing out the advantages of Tech and the programs here. The third phase will be a telephone follow-up for likely prospects. Meanwhile, students' and faculty members will visit high schools in Butte, Anaconda, Deer Lodge, Whitemall, and Boulder to talk to students. If the program is successful, the students plan to organize more formally in the fall and carry on their own effort to bring more students to Tech.

Pet. Engineers Receive Grant The Schlumberger Foundation of Houston, Texas, according to Clifton Iverson, executive secretary to the managers, has announced continued support of Montana Tech for 1973. The Schlumberger grant was esta blished last year through the efforts of Tech's Department of Petroleum Engineering. The 1973 grant will provide $1,200 for student aid and $600 for use as an unrestricted grant, reports rÂť, William G~ Halbert, head of the petroleum department. These amounts, he notes, represents a $300 increase relative to the Foundation's initial grant last year. In his reply to Iverson, 'I'ech Acting President Dr. Kenneth M. McLeod, "These grants will be most welcome since budget restrictions continue to be one of our major problems." The Schlumberger Foundation is a division of Schlumberger Limited, a world-wide organization which provides services to the oil industry. The latter finding was based on a pollution cost-benefit

study previously done by the NWF. That study showed that the typical American family could save $13 per year with a national cleanup campaign w hich will reduce air pollution damages by 66 percent, and save $87 annually while slashing water pollution damages by 90 percent. The Federation estimated that the average family must invest some $500 by 1975 without any return. However, by 1979, the average family will recover this $500 and, by 1980, begin realizing annual savings of approximately $200-plus having a cleaner environment. Kimball

Between the innocenc~ of babyhood and the dignity of manhood we find a delightful creature called a boy. You can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart. You can't get him out of your mind; you might as well give up-he is your captor, your jailer, your boss and your master-a fun faced, pintsized, snow throwing, bundle of noise. Boys come in assorted sizes, weights and colors, but all boys have the same 'creed: To enjoy every second of every minute of every hour of each day until they are packed off to bed at night.

SpeechSchol a rsh ip Awa rded to Davis The second Floor Store Speech Scholarship, w 0 r i h $100, has been awarded to Mark Davis, Butte High School student, who will enroll at Montana Tech this falI. Davis, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Davis of Butte has won a number of awards in extemporaneous speaking at the high school. Mrs. Lucile Alt faculty advisor to Tech's speech and debate teams, says the Davis youth comes highly recommended by his high school coach Mike Sullivan. Davis also is an excellent student, notes Mrs. Alt. He plans to participate in debate and in individual events at Tech next year. The Floor Store award is the only speech scholarship available at Tech. Last year, When it was first awarded Ken Latsch, Butte, Was the winner. A freshan this year, Latsch has compiled a good college record in speech and debate. According to Mrs. Alt, "We are grateful to Mrs. Musgrove of the Floor Store for providing Montana Tech with this scholarship again. This year we have a fine group of beginners in speech and debate. They have made a good showing in nearly every meet. This scholarship is important to the caliber of new students attracted to Tech and it suppli s the rest of the speech and bate students with added incentive. "The ability to communicate ver bally is essential to each one of us, no matter what our field. W~ at Tech feel that we are developing an excellent forensics program for the benefit of all students."

Students planning to enter college in the fall are reminded by Montana Tech Registrar Frank Kelly that it is not too soon to begin preparation. Because of the length of time it takes registrars' offices to process applications" review transcripts and assign advisors and I.D. numbers, the sooner students can begin sending in to the college of their choice completed application forms the easier the fall rush becomes for the students and the registration offic-es. High school seniors from Butte and the surrounding area who intend to enroll at Tech in the fall are reminded by Kelly that applications can be submitted now. These students he路 says, also should request that their high school send a transcript of grades with the actual date of graduation and rank in class at the conclusion of this term. Tech students are required to take the American College Test before entering. These scores also must be on file in the Registrar's office. Students . or parents with questions concerning the admission procedure at Tee h should direct their inquiries to the Registrar's ofice, 792-8321, ext. 263. I

(IV L S IION/S el tive Sated for Th路n s Like ech The National Endowment for the Humanities has made a grant of $50,481 to the National Gallery of Art for distribution of Pioneers of l\-Iodem Painting, a six-part film series written and narrated by Kenneth Clark, to community and campus audiences in the United States through the auspices of smaller colloges and universities with enrollments under 2000 and smaller art museums. Announcement of the grant was made by Dr. Ronald S. Berman, Chairman of the National Endowment at a 10:00 a.m. news conference at The National Gallery of Art. The films, in color and 45 minutes in length, are visual explorations of the works of Manet, Cezanne, Monet, Seurat, Rousseau and Munch. They were originally produced for ATV-London. The news conference was also the occasion for the first United States press preview of two films from the series, those on Monet and Munch. The Endowment's grant to the Gallery will be used to purchase and distribute prints of the Pioneers of Modern Painting series through a disdistribution concept Which offers them free of charge to small colleges ad museums and neighbOring com m u nit i e s which might not otherWise be able to afford to rent or buy them.

Since 1970 the National Gallery has been distribUting prints of <?lifford, Clark's Widelyacclauned 13-part Civilisation series in a similar manner under a $10,000 matching grant from the National Endowment and the Xerox Corporation "The great success of this pro~ gram," said Dr. Berman, "has encouraged the National En?owment to engage in a sim .. II~ program with respect to Ploners of Modern Painting." Specifics of this second joint program for distribution of ~rd Clark's fIlms were outlined by J. Carter Brown, Director of the National Gallery of Art, follOwing Dr. Berman's ~nnounce~ent of the grant. !he National Gallery is especially pleased to be abl t ti e 0 con mua its partnerShip with the National Endowment :or the Humanities to reach the student and adult aUdiences for the arts across the country " ~a~~ Mr. Brown. "Through o~r Irutlal program sponsored also by the Endowment Lor d Clark's Civilisation fiims have already have been shown On more. than 600 campuses and the 1r commUnities in th United States and its po sses, . ~lons. The coperative screen~ngs of Civilisation for both tow~ ~d gown' have been en .... thuSIastlcally receiVed by the colleges and have proved to be a most useful formula in reach-

ing a broad community audience." One of the broad goals of the National Endowment for the Humanities is to bring media to serve more fully the needs of broad citizen audiences at the reduced unit costs which such technology makes possible. Dr. Berman stated at the conference that "in film lies th opportu nity to bring education to great numbers, yet with the extraordinary economy which this medium makes possible. In Pioneers of Modern Painting, as well as Civilisation, we have on film a gifted teacher and interpreter. Through Lord Clark s vision, millions of citizens and students now may gain a deeper insight into the work, life and events of six major artists who profoundly affected the direction of modern painting.
