That’s why we’re interviewing at Texas A&M University. 'SpgemJ. "*•**‘7 'V-- ... . ***** We’ve grown because we ve made it a practice to employ the brightest, most capable people available. Which is exacdy why we’re coming here. We’re Halliburton Services, the largest oil field service company in the world. We provide a full range of highly technical, extremely complex services to the petroleum and other industries. This visit, we’re interviewing for positions in the following areas of our business: Field Engineering Manufacturing or Plant Engineering Research and Development Equipment Engineering Increasingly, our customers —both major and independent petroleum companies—rely on the skills of our engineers to engineer oil and gas well cementing, stimulation, and remedial services. As a field engineer, you’ll be responsible for thoroughly analyzing the needs of your customer’s well, engineering the service or treatment design, presenting your recommendations to your customer, marshalling the equipment necessary to perform the service, and supervising the Halliburton personnel on the job. Field engineering demands an individual with excellent engineering abilities and who is willing to accept tremendous responsibility within a few months of joining Halliburton. To maintain our exacting quality standards Halliburton manufactures the vast majority of the equipment we use in providing our services. To keep up with booming demands we operate several manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and abroad. We offer a unique challenge because our work involves both long production runs and job shop operations. As an engineer in this department, your responsibilities can range from developing manufacturing procedures for a new product to evaluating quality control procedures. Individuals selected for manufacturing opportunities must have a high degree of technical ability, the personality to work effectively with people, and a healthy dose of horse sense. A major reason for Halliburton’s leadership position is the constant flow of new products, techniques, and procedures from our Research and Development Departments. The departments are widely recognized as both the most productive and the largest of their type in the world. The departments function in four basic areas —Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical, and Tools. Several different professional disciplines are required. Eventually you’ll be assigned primary responsibility for an entire project. It is a position that requires an individual with a unique understanding of how to practically apply theoretical concepts, able to communicate with field personnel, and who enjoys the challenge of expanding an entire industry’s technological base. One important reason for our leadership in oil field services is the rugged dependability of our equipment. Virtually every piece of service equipment we use is designed and built by Halliburton people. As an equipment engineer, you’ll be given responsibility for a specific project. That responsibility will include all engineering, introducing your product to Halliburton field personnel, and trouble shooting in the field. You’ll take charge of the complete project from inception to successful field performance. Equipment engineering demands an individual who is able to cross interdisciplinary lines, who can work well with other engineers and non-technical people, and who has the ability to communicate well.

HALLIBURTON SERVICES $ Duncan, Okla. 73533 A HALLIBURTON Company Equal Opportunity Employer M/F Davis jury vote told Juror says 4 conned United Press International HOUSTON — One of the eight jurors who contended T. Cullen Davis was guilty of solicitation of murder says the dissenting jurors were conned by the millionaire’s re spectable image and the presenta tion of his defense. Despite an oath not to reveal which way the jury had voted, James W. Morrison Tuesday revealed the breakdown of the jury that deliber ated through 43 hours and 14 votes without reaching a verdict, causing a mistrial to be declared. “They wanted to believe Davis is respectable and therefore he’s got a nice lawyer and the good guys couldn’t possible be the bad guys,’’ Morrison said. “I think this guy is a walking bomb. I guess there’s a lot of people in Fort Worth who think so, too. Morrison said jury foreman Mary Carter, 47, a medical secretary, and jurors Vera Miller, 57, a personnel stenographer; Helen M. Hill, 47, a bookkeeper, and Charles Franks, 31, an engineer, resisted conviction. He hinted defense lawyer Richard “Racehorse” Haynes’s sex appeal was a key. “They would not admit to being taken in by him,” Morrison said. “We confronted them with that. They were quick to say no’ — maybe a little too quick.” Morrison said the tapes convinced him of Davis’s guilt. “For me, it had to be guilty. The tapes were the all-important thing,” Morrison said. “They said MeCrory controlled the conversations. He didn’t really. It isn’t necessarily the guy who makes the most noise. “As far as the rest of us were con cerned, when they talked about kill ing people, that’s what they meant. ” “The people who were (voting) not guilty pretty much believed Davis’s story and they believed Karen Mas ter’s story about the FBI, Morrison said, referring to testimony from the defendant’s mistress that he was telephoned by the FBI. Davis testified he cooperated with MeCrory in making audio tapes about murder for pay because the GOP chooses Detroit in ’80 FBI told him McCrorywasi tion suspect and he should along.” Morrison, 50, a mt technologist, said Franks’s was “a good deal weaker I women’s and was based o about Davis’ friend-tin informant and chief accuser,) MeCrory. “H is was based on the facttl thought MeCrory’s story wasil Morrison said. Morrison said defense “made reasonable doubt looll very formidable thing.” Morrison said some jurorsdi understand the concept of i able doubt. “The people who understand! the people who are usedtonj decisions and sticking by them,' said. “One person kept sayind doubt, and that’s not true. Other jurors stuck to a ment not to disclose or con split. Helen Farmer, 48, uift| NASA employee, said Morris sending reporters “down trails” with disclosures not be true. “I wouldn’t put too muchsti Jim Morrison’s statements, say we were honor bound, right.

L HeJ Profes United Press Intel-national DETROIT — The Republican Party picked a city on the rebound — symbolic of its own presidential hopes — for its 1980 national conven tion. City fathers said they felt the GOP decision will help Detroit shed its lingering image as a center of crime and racial unrest and add momentum to its drive towards revitalization. State Republican officials said it also could improve the image of the GOP. “The decision to hold the convention in the Renaissance City will help focus national attention on the progress which we have made in revitalizing our urban areas and will underscore the resurgence of the Republican Party, Michigan Gov. William G. Milliken said. “It will emphasize the fact that just as Detroit is being rejuvenated, the Republican Party is being rejuvenated. Milliken, who was vacationing in the Virgin Islands, worked closely with Mayor Coleman A. Young to secure the GOP bid, which was announced Tuesday in Washington. Young, a vice chairman of the National Democratic Committee and one of President Carter’s closest black supporters, said he will now concentrate on securing the Democratic convention for Detroit. Auto magnate Henry Ford II, a major supporter of the new downtown Renaissance Center complex that features a 1,200-room hotel, said he also will try to convince Democrats "that Detroit is the place to be in 1980. The Republican convention will begin July 14, 1980, at spacious Coho Hall, which can seat 4,400 delegates and alternates and more than 12,000 spectators. The Democrats are expected to hold their convention the following month. At a news conference Tuesday, Young posed with a photograph that showed him riding a zoo elephant — symbol of the GOP. He boasted that Detroit, despite its poor national image, is one of the country’s five leading convention cities. “Through this national convention, the entire world will see that Detroit, which once was declared dead, is indeed alive and well and that we have recovered from the maladies of our past,” he said.
