inhalatorium Mystery Still Remains Unsolved FORT DAVIS, Tex., May 5, OP> —A dozen years ago a strange glass and metal case large enough for an adult to stand in sat alone in wind and weather on a ranch pasture where it had been for per haps 40 years. In neat lettering near the top was the single word,” “Inhalator ium.” Some of the strange story of Baldauf Plans To Attend Special Meet Dr. Richard J. Baldauf, associate professor in the Department of Wildlife Management, will attend a special meeting May 9 called by the National Science Foundation for directors of undergraduate re search programs throughout the country. Purpose of the meeting, which will be held in St. Louis, Mo., is* to inform the directors of various programs now . underway in the U. S. Baldauf has served as director of the Undergraduate Research Participation Program during the past year. The program was es tablished by the National Science Foundation to give undergraduates the opportunity to participate in research studies in progress and to study under competent scien tists. Ten A&M students have partici pated in the program in the past year. Baldauf has been named direc tor of a new undergraduate re search training program for the summer of 1960. The project is designed to give students research experience in special studies set up for that purpose. A&M recently received approval of a grant of $2,550 for a training program in which three students will participate under the direction of Baldauf. the case, which looked like a tele phone booth, is known. Now the Fort Davis Historical Society is attempting to find the whole rec ord. MOTHER'S SON (Continued from Page 1) Curry, was seriously injured in an automobile accident. “But whatever Mom is made of just bends, no breaks,” said Cur ry. “She broke down for just a few minutes, and that was it. It took her about five minutes to re gain herself, and she never again lost control at all.” Because of his father’s condi tion, Curry had to drop out of school, since his mother was need ed to care for his dad—as well as himself. He was able to resume studies after the Christmas holi days, and even though he missed six weeks of school, Curry man aged to post a 2.4 grade-point ration and become a distinguished student that semester. A Wife Another person who has been close to Curry through his time of difficulty is his present wife, Nancy, whom he met at a basket ball game in Commanche in De cember of 1956. The following May after they had met, the couple were going steady, and in Febru ary of 1958, they became engaged. Nancy began working after she graduated from high school, and continued until they were married in the First Methodist Church, Commanche, Tex., April 13 of this year. Since that time, the Currys have been residing at 405 E. Sec ond Street, College Station. Curry’s father is now back teach ing and his mother is getting a well-deserved rest. Curry is reg istered for 19 hours this semester and intends to finish the year as a -distinguished student for the second semester. He plans to grad uate in May or July of 1961, and go into research in the space pro gram after graduation as a pro fession. It is known that early in this century a Fort Davis citizen es tablished a tuberculosis treatment camp on his x-anch six miles east of town. The citizen was Will Pruett, son of a pioneer family here. His brother, the late Ben Pruett of Marfa, said last November that “Will got the idea after being in Arizona a couple of years.” The place was called Tent City. It was so advertised in newspapers and pamphlets. Ben Pnxett said there was a frame recreation and dining hall and 12 cottages with adobe walls and tenting roofs. He says this is all he can recall of the place. Mrs. Andrew G. Prude, 82, a sister of the founder, recalled that the camp stax-ted early in the cen tury but she did not know the ex act date. Going Concern Mrs. Nell Davis said she settled in Fort Davis in 1906 and Tent City was a going concern then. Roy D. Bloys, then a youngster, was hired to drive patients to the site after they arrived by train. He remembered that about ten per sons worked at the encampment. “But kid-like,” said Bloys, “I paid little attention to what was there and cannot now recall the exact years.” No One Can Tell History students can find no one who can tell of the method of treatment. They assume that the inhalatorium must have been for patients to in while they breathed medicated vapors. Barry Scobee, Fort Davis news man, recalled visiting the site a dozen years ago. At that time crumbled adobe gave evidence of some buildings. The dining hall was nearly gone, its x’oof sagging under the weight of leaves and time. A week later he returned with a truck to pick up the inhalator ium and preserve it. But it had disappeared; LOYAL TEXAS AGGIES ARE SUPPORTING “TIGER” TEAGUE, ’.32 FOR CONGRESS % I THINGS THAT CONGRESSMAN OLIN E. “TIGER” TEAGUE HAS DONE FOR THE A&M COLLEGE OF TEXAS • Author of the Korean G.I.

Arnold, research tech nologist for the A&M division of the Texas Petroleum Research Committee, is the co-author of a technical paper titled “Effect of Reservoir Fluid Propei-ties on Oil Recovery by Water Flooding.” The paper shows the effect of various properties of petroleum reservoir crude oils on the opti mum pressure to initiate a water flooding program to get the most oil out of the ground. “At the present time many oil fields,” Arnold says, “have to be abandoned for economic x*easons when only one barrel of oil has been produced for each five bar rels in the field. A successful wa terflood may increase the oil re covery by 100 per cent. For this reason, it is necessary to conduct research to find the optimum pres sure to initiate the waterflood.” Arnold is a native of Waxa- hachie. • TAKING NO CHANCES MADELIA, Minn.
