Foundation to grant
ecology program funds
On April 21, 1970, nearly 20
million students in colleges and
universities all over the country
spoke out for various forms of
environmental control. 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
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

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

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

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
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
