Another Student Earle, Lindsay Given Awards Vote Invalidated By Engineers For the second time in as many months, elections for important student posts have been mishandled and thrown out for re-balloting-. The increased enrollment in recent years, tied with this year’s overall election interest and active coordination among civilians to support qualified personnel among their ranks in previously all Corps positions, has contributed to voting in mass. While progress is being made to reduce student apathy, election administration has worked in opposition to voting fervor. In truth, only 423 votes were cast Tuesday in Student Senate elections, or about one-fifth the votes cast in the March 28 class elections.. But to those who took the time to vote, both were equally important, and in both cases, protests by candidates revealed miscues which invalidated the results. The class elections required clarification of campaigning in the Memorial Student Center, poster displays on campus and enforcement of clothing regulations without such prece dent. Results of Tuesday’s Student Senate election were thrown out by the Senate Election Committee when Elec tion Commission Chairman Tony Benedetto gave them the authority to do so. Dick Westerbrook, a candidate for senior engineering representative, among several others, protested that polls had closed prematurely and that there had been cross-over voting. This would involve, as an example, a junior in geo sciences voting for someone in liberal arts. Each one of the protests could have been avoided with the least amount of preparation and coordination by the election commission. It was its responsibility to be thorough ly familiar with election rules and procedures. It was its responsibility to insure that students did not vote twice, did not violate campaign procedures and did not cross-vote. We hope that next year’s commission takes the time to adequately prepare for student elections. It is its job to establish and enforce a system of voter registration, to see that voting is as valid and as swift as possible. If rules are changed or suddenly enforced, then there are several means to notify students well in advance. If students are to have the representation they need to coordi nate and arbitrate with the administration and among themselves, then the best people have to be elected. Interest in student affairs and a large turnout are two ways to insure the best men in the right positions. It should be done right—the first time. Dr. Stephen Jusahz Speaks Today Dr. Stephen Jusahz, editor of the “Applied Mechanics Review” for Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, will speak Thurs day afternoon at Texas A&M University. Jusahz’s talk, “Birth Control of Technical Literature,” is set for 2 p.m. in the School of Architec ture auditorium, announced Dr. Thomas J. Kozik, professor of mechanical engineering. Kozik said Jusahz is a special ist in information retrieval with a number of patents and publica tions to his credit. Jusahz was educated in Hun gary and Sweden. He worked at Massachusetts Institute of Tech nology before joining Southwest Research. Dr. James H. Earle, Engineer ing Graphics Department head, and Dr. J. D. Lindsay, chemical engineering professor emeritus, were honored Wednesday with top faculty awards by Texas A&M’s College of Engineering. Earle received the $1,400 Gen eral Dynamics Award for teach ing excellence and Lindsay the $200 Charles Crawford Award for special contributions to im provements of A&M’s engineering program. The award to Earle was pre sented by Forrest E. Armstrong, 1947 A&M graduate in aero nautical engineering. He is chief project engineer on General Dy namics’ FB-111 strategic bomber. Other highlights of awards ceremonies included presentation of certificates to three of the 825 engineering seniors for outstand ing accomplishments in scholastic and university-community activi ties. Dr. J. George H. Thompson, selection committee chairman, gave awards to Pat G. Rehmet of Alice in civil engineering, Barry Erwin Morgan of Bryan in aerospace engineering, and Leon Edward Travis III of San Antonio in electrical engineering. Engineering Dean Fred J. Ben son praised Dr. Earle as “a good idea man.” “He’s always coming up with something new and different that is good for our program,” Benson said. “Jim took over the Engi neering Graphics Department four years ago and has done a remarkable job of revitalization. He and his staff work each se mester with industries in order to bring freshmen into contact with industrial people, thus giving a big boost to our program.” “Dr. Lindsay, since his retire ment in 1965, has worked with our Junior Engineering Technical Society program,” he pointed out. “He has done a great job in helping recruit fine students. This was the main criteria for his selection.” Lindsay, who joined A&M in 1938, is first recipient of the Crawford Award since Dr. John C. Calhoun Jr. was honored in 1963. Calhoun is now A&M’s vice president for programs. Profes sor Crawford in mechanical en gineering and Norman Rode in electrical engineering received identical plaques in 1962.

Better Road Illumination Better communication between basic researchers and designers of illumination systems was urged Wednesday by Dr. Neilon J. Rowan in the final session of a three-day driving visibility sym posium at Texas A&M University. Rowan, head of the driving environment division of the Texas Transportation Institute, said ap plied research is the best way for researchers and designers to mix. “Basic researchers need to con centrate on final research results and learn to speak the language of people who are to use the product, Rowan emphasized. “To day’s terrific pace demands that designers have a better under standing of fundamentals and facts.” “Applied research people must work harder to recognize the power of research and design,” he added. “They can be the bridge that closes the breach in the com munications gap.” Dr. Everett Strong, speaking for the Illuminating Engineering Research Institute, symposium sponsor, said researchers and de signers must be more versatile to apply information from other disciplines to problems.
