AFTER TRAILING 6-2 in the
third inning, Theta Delta Chi put
on a fifth inning splurge to end
their game with Phi Kappa Tau
in a 7-7 tie in the IM fraternity
playoffs for third place.
The Phi Tau's surged into the
lead early in the second inning
as they scored three runs on
two singles, a double, a walk,
and an error. Theta Delta Chi
grabbed two runs in its half of
the third inning, but the Phi
Tau's put three more runs
across in their half of the inn-
ing to give them the 6-2 margin.
In another third place playoff,
Alpha Sigma Phi submerged Ac-
acia, 12-2. The Alpha Sig's were
aided by good pitching on the
part of Tom Biggs, who gave up
only four hits and three walks.
Kent Shoemaker led the Alpha
Sigs in hitting with a double and
a triple in four trips to the plate.

DELTA CHI easily downed Tri-
angle, 11-3, in a fourth place play-
off. The Delt Chi's scored seven
runs in the second inning after
Dave Thomas, pitching for Tri-
angle, gave up six walks and three
hits. Art Angood, hurler for the
Delta Chi's gave up only four hits
and four walks to the losers.
In another exciting third
place playoff, Tau Delta Phi
downed Theta Chi, 4-2. The Tau
Delt's were ahead, 2-0, going
into the fifth, but the Theta
Chi's tied it up with two runs
that inning. Herb Feinstein
smashed out a home run with
one aboard in the sixth to break
the tie, and give the Tan Delt's

Probably not. As far as we know, there isn't such a term.
Even so, the terrain of a manufacturing plant may have
a vital effect on the design and location of its engineer-
It certainly did in the case of our Belle, West Virginia,
plant, which is just across the road from ja flat-topped
hill, 750 feet high.

you've thought out your solution, you might like to
compare it with the one given below.
Du Pont engineers made use of the precipitous ter-
rain in this way: pressure on the water leaving the
scrubbers was sufficient to force it up to the top of the
hill for CO2 recovery. The returning water thereby pro-
vided a pressure of approximately 325 psi (750 feet of
head) at the base of the hill. This gift of pressure on the
