Now the National Science Foundation is willing to pay college students to put their ideas into actions. Through their Student Origi nated Studies Program, the NSF is asking that students or groups of students submit projects of a scientific nature and organize a team of between five and fifteen members on work on the proposed idea. The projects must be phys ical, biological, or sociological in nature and deal directly with an environmental problem. A proposed project should be designed to occupy a 10-12 week period of the academic year, with each student in the team being paid $80 per week. Proposals must be turned in for consideration before Nov. 20. If a student, group or club has an idea for a project or is inter ested in finding out more about the program, they should contact Coleman Loyd in the NSF Pro grams office in the basement of the YMCA. ★ ★ ★ A&M Sports Car Club will regroup Tuesday The Texas A&M Sports Car Club regroups Tuesday at the first meeting of the new school year. Club president James Forte of McKinney said the 7:30 p.m. meeting will be in the old College Station City Hall, corner of Patricia Street and State Hwy. 2154. The club is open to all Bryan and College Station drivers and persons interested in driving, Forte indicated. “Members don’t have to own a car,” he added. “We’re out to have a good time and do it safely.” Forte said meetings will be held regularly on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the City Hall. Films and slides of previous TAMUSCC events will be shown at the Tuesday meeting.

L. Downs pool to championship length. New bulkhead divides pool into championship length A locally engineered and fabri cated device qualifying P. L. Downs Jr. Natatorium for NCAA- distance competitions has been realized at a saving of more than 275 per cent for Texas A&M and taxpayers. The bulkhead of extruded chan nel-type aluminum “bridges” the indoor A&M pool. The 3,500-pound movable barrier includes eight starting blocks, submerged turn board and is covered wtih Maroon indoor-outdoor carpeting. Robert A. Jenkins, physical plant planning engineer, said the total project cost A&M $8,000. System architect estimates on similar bulkheads at other uni versities ranged from $30,000 to $90,000. Assistant swimming coach Emil Mamaliga said the bulkhead will improve natatorium facilities in several ways. Because the 62-foot long device corrects the pool length, the Southwest Conference swim meet is scheduled here this year for the first time in several years. Concurrent improvements in other parts of the natatorium and at Wofford Cain Pool are also being made, pointed out Dr. Carl W. Landiss, head of the Health and Physical Education Depart ment which administers the pools. Non-reflective glass has been installed in west-side windows of the natatorium, which has also been re-roofed and had north windows closed. The assembled bulkhead was installed through the opening. Landiss noted the Cain pool diving tower will also be com pletely re-designed and replaced. The present two-platform tower was never approved. The A&M indoor pool, along with several others in the South west, was made 100 feet long when it was constructed in 1932. The standard NCAA competition distance is 75 feet. Bulkhead in stallation brings the pool to speci fication, Mamaliga explained. “Championship meets use six lanes. With the 42-foot Downs pool width, the outside lanes will have ‘quieter’ water,” the assist ant coach commented. “Downs has always been called a fast pool. With the quiet outside lanes, it should be the fastest in the state.” He noted that eight lanes can be run for age group meets. The bulkhead, which can be rolled the length of the pool, will also serve as a natural barrier dividing the pool, preventing interference from simultaneously conducted diving and swimming classes or begin ning and advanced swim groups. “It also will be beneficial in recruiting swimmers,” Mamaliga remarked. “Our pool size has been used against us.” Jenkins called the bulkhead project “a good community ef fort.” It was designed by Charles J. Godwin, Bryan architect and engineer, and manufactured by Research Equipment Inc. of Bryan from aluminum supplied by Alenco.
