Donald Rumsfeld Guest Speaker At Worthington Technical Awards Dinner Honoring Young Engineers
Young engineers, designers and researchers from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico received $9,500 in prizes recently at Windows on the World in New York. The formal dinner concluded the first biennial Henry R.
Worthington North American Technical Awards Contest, sponsored by the Polytechnic Institute of New York. Guest speaker was Donald H. Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense.
First prize of $5,000 was awarded to Dr.
R.L. Evans, British Columbia Energy Commission, Vancouver, B.C. Second prize of $2,000 was awarded to co-authors John F.
Hurley and Edward O. Hartel, AVCO Lycoming, Stratford, Conn. Dr. Budugur Lakshminarayana, Pennsylvania State University, received the $1,000 third prize.

Chen, Hydro-Turbine Division, Allis Chalmers, York, Pa.; and Dr. Jimmy S. Chow with A.Y. Hou and L. Landwebber, Westinghouse Research Labs, Pittsburgh, Pa.
More than 90 entries covering pump technology were evaluated by judges from three countries, for prizes of $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000, and three honorable mention awards of $500.
The awards commemorate Henry Rossiter Worthington, American inventor-engineer, who began his pump manufacturing firm in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1840. He was also a founder of Polytechnic Institute.
The purpose of the awards contest is to encourage young engineers and technical experts to contribute to improvements in pump design, performance, operation and maintenance. Worthington will publish the winning papers in book form.
The awards were presented by Lee J. Topp, president of Worthington Pump Inc., before an audience of 150 educators, scientists, engineers, industrialists, public officials and editors. The contest is modeled on the biennial Worthington European Technical Award, begun in Italy in 1967.
Worthington Pump Inc. is the world's largest pump company, with 23 manufacturing plants throughout the world. It serves a broad spectrum of industries which, worldwide, represent a multibillion-dollar market. More than half of Worthington Pump's products are manufactured abroad or exported to customers outside the United States
