Graduate Student Paper Presented To SNAME L.A. Metropolitan Section

At the regular monthly meeting of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, the attention of the members was directed toward student activities. This has been a special concern of the Section, and every year at least one paper session is devoted to it. Nathan Friedland, member of the Section's Executive Committee and professor of ocean/electrical engineering at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, was the sponsor for the presentation. The guest speaker was John Stumm, a graduate student of Cal Poly. His paper was titled "Manganese Sea Nodules: Ocean Mining & Chemical Processing." The paper was well received as demonstrated by the lively discussion afterward.

Also among those present were two prominent professors from Cal Poly Pomona's department of electrical engineering, John C.

McMillan and Capt. James A.

McAllister, USN (ret.), both specialists in ocean engineering. Their enthusiasm and support of student interests were evident and they, in turn, stimulated considerable conversation among those attending.

Another special guest at the meeting was Dr. T. Francis Ogilvie, chairman of the department of naval architecture and marine engineering, The University of Michigan. He had been in the southern California area on business and was invited to attend the meeting by a Section member.
