Repercussions from the kill-

man Jews this weekend with
bomb packages disguised as
Jewish new year's gifts.

In their first official reaction
to the massacre the Egyptian
government laidthe sole blame
for the killings on the Bonn gov-
ernment. German officials had
asked the Egyptians to inter-
vene in the situation while, the
hostages were still alive, but the
Egyptians refused to help.
TheEgyptians promised some
sort of "decisive action" against
West Germany but refused to
specify what form that action
might take.

dle East specialists said that

good relations with Bonn in the
future unless they condemn the

Stating that "engineers can't afford to be
narrow specialists," Ragone advises them
not to specialize, citing specialization as
the cause for the latest slump in engineer-
ing enrollment. He encourages students to
"stay flexible, stay loose."
As a dean, Ragone feels it is, his duty
to "create conditions to further the process
of education." He says that he should
"make sure that both problem-oriented and
science-oriented divisions survive and work
"The greatness of a school is measured
by it's diversity," Ragone says.
Ragone would "love to foster the in-
volvement of more engineers in government

on staffs of congressmen in order to become
aware of the forces coming into play on

After teaching at the University from
1953 to 1962, Ragone left and headed the
metallurgy department of the Atomic Divi-
sion of General Dynamics and helped design
an efficient type of nuclear reactor which
minimized the problem of heated w a s t e
water, thermal pollution. "In those days,
nobody gave a damn," he recalls.
An expert on the problem of automotive
pollution, Ragone has served on numerous
panels discussing the environment, includ-
ing the Committee on Advanced Automotive
Power Systems for the Council of Environ-
mental Quality.
Ragone acted as dean of Dartmouth Col-
lege's engineering school until September 1,
1972 when he assumed the deanship of the
University's College of Engineering, suc-
ceeding Gordon Van Wylen.
Outgoing Dean Van Wylen assumed the
presidency of Hope College in Holland,
