Prof Tells Of Soviet Invasion “Tell the world about this,” Czechoslovakians pleaded to for eigners leaving the Russian-in vaded country. Among the departing foreign ers doing their part to tell the world is Dr. Horace R. Blank, a research geologist who was at tending the International Geolog ical Congress in Prague during the Soviet take-over. Dr. Blank and his wife just returned home from the ordeal, which was followed by a visit to Germany and Austria. “We just woke up one morning and there were the Russian tanks in the street,” Blank recalled. “They just came in during the night and surprised everyone.” HE SAID he and several other Americans were staying in a ho tel about two miles from the main business district and were not in any immediate danger. “The Russians were all around, but we only heard one shot,” noted the retired professor who is now associated with A&M’s Texas Transportation Institute. “Our main problem was we did n’t really know what was going on,” Dr. Blank continued. “There were no English newspapers and, of course, all the radio and tele vision programs were in Czech. We had to rely on an occasional call to the American embassy.” The U. S. embassy arranged transportation out of the coun try for American visitors. The Blanks departed on the second outbound train, three days after the invasion. DR. AND MRS. Blank, along with other Americans, were de briefed by U. S. Army intelligence personnel upon arrival in Nurem berg, Germany. He was particu larly impressed by the “wonder ful treatment” afforded them by the Army. The Red Cross also was on hand. Blank said the Russian soldiers seemed well behaved. He and ot her visitors in Prague walked around in the city. Nothing hap pened. While there was little violence evident, the Czechs were busy publishing leaflets stating their case and annoying the occupation troops with tactics such as re moving street signs to confuse the invaders. Citizens had been told not to resist the invasion and risk death and destruction of the city. THE A&M researcher said the universal reaction of Czechs was one of dismay. He said he did not encounter a single citizen who supported the Russian action. While touring Austria and Switzerland, Dr. Blank detected considerable concern about Amer ican willingness to “stay with” its commitments in Europe. “They are very much afraid that for reasons of economy, or otherwise, that we might reduce our European forces,” he ex plained. “They feel that if tht Russians can take over Czechos lovakia in one day . . . .” The geological meeting which Blank was attending was a cas ualty of the invasion. It was to have run 11 days but broke up after only four. “The Czechs had gone to so much trouble to make the con gress a success, both from a scientific and cultural viewpoint," the professor emeritus noted, "but it all went down the drain.” s- ’68 Chemistry Faculty Picked (i Six new Chemistry Depart ment faculty members were an nounced here Monday by Dr. A. E. Martell, head. Appointed professor were Karl A. Gingerich, Bernard L. Shapiro, Thor L. Smith and Minoru Tsut- sui. Wallace M. Pasika is an as sociate professor and Jaan Laane assistant professor. They all hold the Ph.D., Mar tell noted. Gingerich, 40, was a senior chemist at Battelle Memorial In stitute before coming to A&M. He received degrees at Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany, and taught at Lud wigs, the University of Illinois and Penn State. Previously an Illinois Institute of Technology professor, Shapiro was a Stanford visiting scholar the past year. He was awarded advanced degrees at Harvard af ter undergraduate study at Mc Gill University in Montreal. The professor, 36, was also a research fellow at Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh. Smith, 48, was propulsion spe cialist with the Cal Tech jet pro pulsion lab and Stanford’s pro pulsion sciences division before accepting appointment at A&M. He directed the Stanford division and has been a scientific fellow since 1964. His degrees are from Wheaton College, IIT and Wis consin. Tsutsui has been at New York University the last eight years as research scientist, project di rector, lecturer and professor. He received the Ph.D. at Yale and doctor of science at Japan’s Na goya University. He also studied at Gifu and Tokyo Universities and MIT. The 50-year-old scien tist had experience at Sloan-Ket- tering Institute, Brookhaven Na tional Lab and with Monsanto. ‘Trojan Women’ Tryouts Set Tryouts for the Aggie Players’ first major play of 1968-69, “The Trojan Women,” will be held Monday at Texas A&M Uni versity. Director C. K. Esten said try outs will be for actors and crew members working with lighting, costume, properties, house, pub licity, set construction and sound. Auditions will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Fallout Theater, in the basement of Guion Hall, Esten added. Euripides’ “The Trojan Wom en” is a classic Greek drama de picting the results of war and the attitudes and emotions of women who survive, the director went on. First of eight major plays to be presented this season by the university’s only fine arts group, “The Trojan Women” has been set tentatively to open Oct. 28 (Monday) and run a week. In addition to major produc tions to be presented in Guion Hall, the Aggie Players annually present about 40 one-act plays in Fallout Theater. Laane is an honor graduate of Illinois and MIT, where he earned the Ph.D. last year. The National Science Foundation and Woodrow Wilson Fellow assisted research and worked summers at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. The 26-year-old professor had 4.8 and 4.9 grade point averages on the 5.0 system for his degrees. Pasika, faculty member at East Texas State three years, joined the A&M faculty during the sum mer. He obtained degrees at Man itoba and Alberta Universities in Canada and taught in Liverpool, England.
