Dr. Dean Rains Presents Paper At Pascagoula Section Meeting Of ASNE

The Pascagoula Section of The American Society of Naval Engineers met recently at the TiKi Restaurant in Gautier, Miss., to hear a paper by Dr. Dean Rains of the Advanced Programs Group of Ingalls Shipbuilding. The paper discussed the Air Capable variants of the DD963-class ships and the use of VSTOL aircraft.

The business meeting was chaired by A.C. LiCausi, Section chairman. The minutes of the September meeting were read and approved. Mrs. Kay Bennett, the treasurer, read the treasurer's report.

The chapter was pleased to have as its guests John Nachtsheim, past ASNE president, R. Kiss and E. Carlson. Mr. Nachtsheim spoke to the membership of the national organization's goals and objectives and its success in the past years, particularly the success of the symposiums held in San Diego, Calif., and most recently in Annapolis, Md.

The new members recognized were W.H. Wheeler and R.W.

Erskine. The Pascagoula Section membership drive has netted 19 new members, which exceeds any other ASNE section sign-ups.

The chairman reminded the members that the next session, January 17, 1978, would select new officers for a term of 18 months to match the Flagship Section terms of office.
