Army Reservists of the 420th Engineer Brigade doused a variety of fires last Thursday at Texas A&M’s Brayton Fire men’s Training Field to demon strate skills acquired in two weeks of training for Brig. Gen. Joe G. Hanover. House, propane and oil tank fires fell before the 23 citizen- soldiers’ attack. Two weeks ago, only one of the two dozen knew anything about fire fighting. Until last Monday, the same number had never handled a “live” (water- pressured) line. Personnel of the Firemen Training Division of the Texas Engineering Extension Service conducted the special school for the 463rd Engineer Platoon (fire fighting) of Huntsville. ^ " ml - GENERAL VIEWS TRAINING Brig. Gen. Joe G. Hanover, commander of the 420th Engineer Brigade, watches soldiers of the unit’s firefighting platoon move in to douse an oil tank fire on Brayton Training Field at Texas A&M. Personnel of the 463rd Engineer Platoon of Huntsville conclude two weeks training Friday with the firemen’s training division of the Texas Engineering Extension Service. Through efforts of Chief Hen ry D. Smith, John R. Rauch, James R. Dobson, Tom Robinson and W. B. Dorman of the division, the soldiers will be MOS (military occupational specialty) qualified Friday. “We have aspired to accomp lish this sort of training over several years in the past,” stated General Hanover, 4 2 0th com mander of Bryan. “What has been accomplished in these two weeks will be far reaching as far as the military reserves go. The technical train ing given these men in two weeks had not been done over a period of years previously,” the brigade commander added. “I look forward to similar training for our new people in the future,” he went on. Roemer Wins $1,000 Post-Grad Scholarship Lamar B. Roemer of Houston will enter Texas A&M this fall for graduate study in oceanog raphy under a $1,000 NCAA Post graduate Scholarship. An outstanding student and tennis player at Trinity Univer sity in San Antonio, Roemer will study for master and doctoral degrees at A&M. He will join Randy Matson. The world record-setting shotput- ter is studying for a master’s de gree in business under an NCAA postgraduate scholarship. Reomer received his bachelor degree in mathematics at Trinity last spring. He was an outstand ing student and played in the number two spot on Trinity’s nationally prominent tennis team coached by Clarence Mabry. The blond, 6-foot-6 student was the state Class 4A singles cham pion while playing at Lamar High in Houston. The 1964 Lamar graduate is the son of D. A. Roemer, 4049 Overbrook, Hous ton.

Dr. Richard Rezak of the Oceanography Department will head the two-year investigation that may benefit submarine con struction, the oil industry, geol ogy and other fields. Laboratory study of marine al gae that secrete various kinds of lime and the possible artificial creation of cemented limestone will be principal avenues of at tack, according to Rezak, a ma rine geologist formerly with the U. S. Geological Survey in Den ver and Shell Development Corp. of Houston. The associate professor said several kinds of algae will be grown in the lab. Skeletons will be analyzed mineralogically and organically to determine the cause of lime secretions. Dorms Operating As ‘Hotels’ For Numerous Campus Visitors An instructional pause at Tex as A&M will be difficult to dis cern this week. Summer session students wrote their last finals Friday afternoon and regular course work will not resume until Sept. 16, first day of fall semester classes. But meeting rooms and dormi tories will remain busy. Housing director Allen Madeley said two halls are operating on a “hotel” basis for students who have to be on campus and three others will be in use this week by off-campus university person nel here for the Agricultural Ex tension Service State Conference. Other dorms are closed. In addition, the sixth Naval Re search Seminar and Police Com munity Relations Institute are under way with about 150 parti cipants involved. TAES Assistant Director V. G. Young said about 725 persons will reside in Dorms 14, 15 and PARDNER You’ll Always Win The Showdown When You Get Your Duds Done At CAMPUS CLEANERS 16 through Friday. “This is our total field staff,” Young noted. “With personnel on campus, about 850 will be in volved in the conference which is held every two years.” Madeley indicated “40 to 60, maybe more, are residing in Dorms 17 and 22 between the summer and fall semesters. These are international students, a fel low may only be here three or four days before he goes on an oceanography cruise, or a stu dent just staying overnight to see his dean.” He noted that part of the off season dormitory residents are Billy Pickard’s trainers who are preparing for the start of varsi ty football practice this week. “From there, we will go to ex periments with loose carbonate sediments to see if artificial limestone can be created,” he added. Dr. Rezak, graduate of Syra cuse and Washington (St. Louis) Universities, said the secrets of limestone formation could yield ways of stabilizing bottoms for submarine construction and the creation and destruction of poro sity. “Oil reservoirs are formed in porous rock, which allows oil to pool,” he noted. “Nearby may be tightly cemented limestone. If we can determimne how and why cementation of the calcium carbonate compound takes place, it would be possible to predict the location of oil-bearing strata more precisely.” Algae for the research project will be collected in the Florida keys, Rezak said. He was on a recent cruise of the Alaminos, A&M’s research ship, which spent six days in the Dry Tortugas for collection of culture specimens. The professor said a graduate student will join the project in September. The lowest body of water in the Western Hemisphere, Badwater pool, lies 280 feet below sea level in Death Valley, Calif.
