A Texas A&M aerospace en gineering major’s wind tunnel tests show “flying saucers” are aerodynamically unfeasible. Stephen L. Lamkin, senior of Austin, constructed two models for tests in the Aerospace En gineering Department’s two-by- three foot wind tunnel. “Non-rotating circular bodies— as ’flying saucers’ would be term ed in scientific vernacular — I tested became extremely unstable and developed destructive flutter at angles of attack above a cer tain point,” the 22-year-old en gineer reported. Lamkin is skeptical of most flying saucer reports and has never seen a UFO (unidentified flying object). He follows reports on such objects and based his models on dimensions obtained from relatively factual sightings. “Buffeting and fluttering be gan to develop above two degrees angle of attack on both models,” Lamkin noted. “Most of the planes built today will take 20 degrees, though in normal operation they do not experience more than 10 degrees. He said a spinning saucer prob ably has better aerodynamic characteristics. “It wasn’t possible for me to spin models I tested though.” THE BATTALION Wednesday, February 7, 1968 College Station, Texas Page 3 t^MBfcfcaaglikaMliiriiiiii' i iingii FLYING SAUCERS GROUNDED Steve Lamkin of Texas A&M, senior aerospace engineering major, “grounded” two flying saucer models for wind tun nel tests. The senior from Dallas found saucer-shaped UFO’s present aerodynamics problems. A 10-inch model (background) is mounted in the Aerospace Engineering Department’s two-by-three foot wind tunnel for tests.

WHITE'S AUTO Bryan & College Station HI 822-3867 — 846-5626 ; v iiiiuiiiiiiiuuiiliiiitiiiillli Customer Key In partment, announced Co. Jim H. McCoy, commandant. Retail Industry Automated stores, “telepurchas ing” and do-it-yourself appliance repair kits are ways the retailer may serve his future customer, Robert H. Lakamp, special assis tant to the president, J. C. Penney Co., said Tuesday night. Lakamp of Short Hills, N. J., addressed about 30 members of the American Marketing Society in the Memorial Student Center. “Within two decades,” Lakamp said, “a housewife will make many of her purchases by tele phone. By choosing items flashed on her television screen, she sends her order to a nearby retail ware house. There the items are auto matically sorted and wrapped, ready for delivery.” Lakamp said that another re tail service, repair ’’modules,” will replace whole units instead of single parts of an appliance and will make repairmen obsolete. Lakamp traced the strategy of the retail industry from the pre- World War II idea of locating small shops in a central business district to the modern, more com plex plan of adapting large stores to consumer trends. “The age of the consumer has come with younger, more affluent and better educated customers,” he said. Southerland, 25, replaces Billy C. Presnal, who left the Office of the Commandant position to seek election to the Texas Legis lature. A 1965 management graduate, Southerland recently completed two years active duty in the Army. The first lieutenant served the second year in Germany as battalion adjutant and headquar ters company commander of the 4th Battalion, 35th Armor. The 1960 San Jacinto High graduate served as a civilian counselor three months before entering active duty. Commission ed at A&M, he was a member of Company A-3 in the Corps. Southerland was in the Fish Drill Team as a marching mem ber and sophomore, junior and senior advisor. He was the first president of the Association of Former Fish Drill Team Mem bers, formed to assist in the pre cision rifle unit. While serving as adjutant in Illesheim, Germany, Lieutenant Southerland was one of only two officers on the 4th Battalion staff of Lt. Col. Jim T. Burke, com mander.
