DAK. The HARDROCK Alumni News Letter South Dakota School of Mines and Technology MAY AND JUNE, 1943 Volume IX No. 5 The Engineer . . . Man of the Hour The engineer is undoubtedly "the man of the hour,� and from all reports our alumni are turning in a performance of which we and the School of Mines can indeed be proud. Since the war emergency became apparent, the success of our Army and Navy and the industrial machine which backs them up has borne more and more heavily on the shoulders of the technical minds of this county. Victory will come to the side with the best material and equipment. Our engineers in the fields of chemistry, electricity, mechanics and metallurgy are competing with the, long famous, scientific minds of Germany � and we are winning the competition. The engineer is becoming a more vital part of manufacturing as the rate of scientific advancement rises, and it is certain that in the era of peace which follows this war, the engineer will occupy a position of greater stature than ever before. The orderly processes of the School of Mines may be expected to be temporarily modified and concentrated on the specific needs of the armed forces. Our school will in the coming months assume the responsibility for the training of men for the armed forces and for industry. This is as it should be, but in the meantime, we, in the Alumni Association, should bend every effort to accelerate the growth of the School, to see that its faculty and facilities are preserved and strengthened. We must contribute to the support of its student body by encouraging, both personally and financially, the enrollment of likely prospects who may not be able to otherwise take part in our country's war program. Advancements in engineering, research and development which stagger the imagination are being made today and will be available for peacetime applications when the war is over. These must be perfected and applied to peacetime applications by new and young engineers with adequate training and a fresh and imaginative viewpoint. With our help and backing, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will be an important contributor to the prosperity of the era of peace to follow. �C. J. Burnside.
