LET OFF STEAM:

business administration students
received their opportunity to "let
off steam," when over 750 ques-

BAd council last semester.

A hundred-pound foundrywork-
It's not impossible at the engi-
neering school's foundry, in fact
this worker not only weighs less
than a hundred pounds but is a
girl to boot. She's Lucy Grozescu,
'51E, and she works at the foun-
dry in the East Engineering Build-
ing every Tuesday and Thursday.
Open for Grads
Civil Service positions at the
Ballistics Research Laboratory,
Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Aber-
deen, Md., are offering valuable
experience for interested gradu-
ating engineers, according to cam-
pus ROTC officials.
More than 70 job opportunities
are currently available, with year-
ly wages ranging from $3,000 to
$4,500, Major Robert S. Niccolls,
military instructor, said.
THE VACANCIES, which are
under Civil Service jurisdiction,
await graduates and graduating
seniors enrolled in university sci-
entific or technical curricula, he
said. Openings are present pri-
marily for students in the physical
science field supporting ballistics,
and work is available for both men
and women, he pointed out.
"If you are a mathematician,
physicist, chemical engineer,
physical chemist, or electronic
engineer, with a degree or ex-
pecting one by June, this is right
down your alley," Major Niccolls
Besides permanent employment,
qualifying students may apply for
select jobs in the coming 3-month
summer period. "There are ex-
cellent chances at Aberdeen for
temporary or permanent work in,
the automotive engineering and
soil mechanics fields," he said.
Applicants will be considered on
the basis of college work, and all
Civil Service ratings and pay will
be determined on the amount of

have been cited as some of the
worst aspects of the BAd school,
according to the results pains-
takingly compiled by the student
Miss Grozescu is the first woman
at the foundry in six years. She's
the mythical "one in a thousand"
at the University in such a course.

A SOPHOMORE in mechanical
engineering. Lucy isn't in the
foundry just for the fun of it. She
does everything that's expected of
her, from making her own mold
to shoveling the molding sand.
One thing she can't do very
well at her weight is lift heavy
molds, but she just uses her
charm to get one of the men
to help her. She gets just as
dirty as anyone else, too.
"I get a big kick out of the
foundry work," she commented.
"I'm learning things I would never
have known any place else, but
I don't think I'd want to make
it my profession."
Lucy says it's her favorite sub-
ject, mainly because there haven't
been any bluebooks in it yet.
"THE BOYS I work with are
a good bunch." she remarked.
"They were a bit shocked to see
a mere woman in the foundry
at fist, but they soon got used
to it and now take me for grant-
It was by no quirk of fate
that Miss Grozescu got into en-
gineering. She went to Cass
Tech High School in her home-
town of Detroit and took draft-
"I found it the most interesting
of all my subjects, so I broke a
woman's "bonds" and went into
"I want to get into the drafting
and designing end of aeronautical
engineering," she said. "I am in
mechanical because it offers a,
wider field of professions, one of
which is aero."
Fow two years before she came
to the University, Miss Grozescu
did drafting work for North Amer-
ican Aviation. Right now in her
"spare" time she spends 20 hours
or so a week drafting and design-
ing at the Aeronautical Research
Center at Willow Run Airport.
Prof. F. B. Rote, supervisor of
the foundry, believes that she'll do,
well in her profession. "Her work
is right up with the student level.
She does an almost professional
job of setting up her molds and
using tools. I guess it's that wom-
an's touch again."
