New Chemical Find For Colored Plastics Made by Dr. F. Cox More permanent and richer colors in plastic shower curtains, handbags, upholstery, and phonograph records are possible through a new chemical discovery. United States patent 2,478,862 for this discovery of color stabilization of vinyl plastics through the use of "alkali metal monosulfides" has just been issued to Dr. Fred W. Cox, assistant director of the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment Station, and J. M. Wallace, a chemist of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. The discovery is based on research conducted for the Wingfoot Corporation of Akron, Ohio. Before coming to the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment Station early this year, Dr. Cox, a native of Atlanta and a chemical-engineering graduate of Georgia Tech, served as group leader for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company at Akron, Ohio, and as head of the applied chemistry division of the Southern Research Institute a t Birmingham, Alabama.

Tech's Place as Third Largest Engineering School Maintained Enrollment at the Georgia Institute of Technology for the calendar year ending September 1, 1949, reached 9,581 students in all divisions, according to Registrar W. L. Carmichael. Of this number, 4,841, or more than 50 per cent, were veterans. The day division reported 6,203 students for the four quarters while the evening division had 2,941. The Southern Technical Institute, which was opened in March 1948 as a unit of Georgia Tech, reported an enrollment of 372 veterans and 65 non-veterans, or a total of 437. It is interesting to note the rapid growth of the Southern Technical In-

stitute, which in 18 months has an enrollment which was not reached by Georgia Tech, its p a r e n t institution, until 18 years after the latter's establishment. These latest figures indicate t h a t for the third straight year, Georgia Tech is maintaining its position as the largest engineering school in the South and the third largest in the United States and Canada. Despite its size, the institution has been able to improve the quality of its education and research as indicated by the fact that more of its courses have been accredited than ever before in its history.

Children in U. S. S. R. Receive Minimum of Seven School Years A drive is under way throughout the Soviet Union to build enough schools to provide a minimum of seven years education for every child. As many children as possible will be given 10 years of schooling. The seven-year course is to be made universal in all r u r a l areas by September 1. In many cities and r u r a l sections, a ten-year minimum course has already been achieved—a standard which will ultimately apply to the whole country. The new regulation requires t h a t

adolescents who have had only four years of study are to be given an opportunity to r e t u r n to school for at least three more years. The shortage of school buildings must be overcome to make this possible. The district of Bliznetsovsk in the Ukraine has promised to erect eight new seven-year schools, to build dormitories for students, homes for the teachers, and to enlarge the school libraries, plagrounds and s c h o o l farms.

OUR SUMMER SWAN SONG Once again we bring a close to our summer


With this issue of the South's Livliest College Newspaper, the Technique brings to a close another summer of journalistic endeavor. We have attempted to do our best in reporting the meagre happenings upon the campus during the summer months and, in many instances, we have been forced to fill the paper with stories from our contemporaries throughout the nation, with editorials from our worthycolleagues around and about the South, and with m a n y off-campus notes. We realize only too well t h a t the summer Technique has not been up to p a r with t h e paper of the regular year, but, of course, you can't report news where no news occurs. In our defense, however, we again pledge to bring to the students t h e best possible coverage of campus-wide news and activities. The Technique will revert to a semi-weekly newspaper with the first fall edition early in October in order to make our material more complete and up to date t h a n would be possible with a weekly edition. In the fall edition also, we will resume our coverage of the athletic fortunes of the reknown Golden Tornado of Tech. Although the preseason prognosticators have overlooked the Jackets in their annual guessing, our own Bobby Dodd has never let us down yet, and


we feel sure when t h e final whistle has sounded come Thanksgiving day, the wearers of the White and Gold will once again be near the top in the SEC standings. Whether it be New Orleans, Knoxville, Gainesville, Birmingham, or here in the Flats, the Technique will be on hand to report t h e games as they happen along with many interesting sidelights of the battles. As we sing our swan song for the summer, we would like to offer thanks and bid farewell to a pair of lads who were invaluable assets to the paper this summer. To Walt Miller, who leaves now via the graduation route and to John Huskisson, whom we reluctantly give back to the Blueprint, we offer our appreciation for a job well done. As Associate Editor, Walt has handled all feature writing as well as the exchange work this summer, and has performed a worthy task. In the capacity of News Editor, "Long J o h n " has worked like a beaver tracking down all the news that, to a casual observer, really didn't seem to exist. In closing, speaking of Mack Gregorie and myself, we would also like to thank all the other staff members whose names appear in the small type below for their untiring assistance in enabling us to publish a successful Technique. —LSF.
