Zoology Instrument Man
Makes Special Equipment

"Unusual" and "different" de-
scribe Paul A. Spradlin's job at
the University.
As instrument man of the zoolo-

cate instruments as well as con-

"And just about anything else
that turns up," Spradlin added.

Controls Dispensary
Another of Spradlin's responsi-
bilities is the dispensary. He has
complete control over it.
He is also in charge of all equip-
ment and keeping it repaired and
does much of the repair work him-
self. "There is a tremendous
amount of equipment in this de-
partment," he says.
All non-academic help in the
zoology department, except office
workers, is responsible to Sprad-

lin. "You have to be able to un-
derstand a lot of problems to be
able to cope with everything," he

What's doin
at~~~~ A"t h~y ircraft

R. P. I. Dedicates

Graduate Study Center
Near Main Plant

Engineers participating in graduate study program comple-
ment their classroom training with laboratory experience
gained through their daily employment.


The dedication last month of a full-fledged graduate
center near the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft plant.
in East Hartford, Connecticut, set a precedent in
relationships between industry and education. At
a cost of $600,000, P & W A's parent company
purchased and equipped the building that was pre-
sented outright to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
for its Hartford Graduate Center. Moreover, an
additional grant by this industry leader to R.P.I.
was used to establish a liberal fellowship fund. Since
last fall, when classes first began, this tuition-assis-
tance plan has functioned to assure advanced educa-
tion for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft's applied sci-
entists and engineers.
The new graduate study center, 115 miles away
from its home campus in upper New York State,
is staffed by a resident, full-time faculty. Engineers
at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and other companies
in the vicinity are able now to continuetheir educa-
tion without interrupting their normal employment.
Designed to raise the level of knowledge and to
broaden the base from which research can be ap-
proached, this unique new concept of education
will lead enrolled engineers to greater achievement
in their careers through pursuit of advanced degrees
in specialized fields from the nation's oldest engi-
neering college.



'Engineers from Pratt & Whitney Aircraft waiting for classes to begin at R.P.I s new graduate
study center. Courses, leading to advanced degrees in specialized fields, include Aeronautical
Engineering, Applied Mechanics, Higher Mathematics, Thermodynamics, Nuclear Technology.
