Carnival Prep

AFROTC statue
Air Force ROTC creates a Michigan lighthouse, part of this year's Carnival theme—"From All Over the State: What Makes Michigan Great."

It was a pre-all-nighter. Friday night found action on the statues and broomball rinks as warm temperatures were finally changing to more suitable Carnival weather.

Air Force ROTC statue chairman Wesley Woodhouse (left) was working on scaffolding, hacking away with a shovel at the lighthouse they were making.

He had lots of help.

Classic rock was belting out of the upper floors of the ROTC building as several students shoveled, hauled, watered, and packed snow on the impressive tower.

"We are going much higher this year than any since I've been here," Woodhouse said. They chose their lighthouse theme after brainstorming, then refining the details.

And they have some secrets passed down from alumni, he said. Just what, he wouldn't say.

Near the library, the CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) crew was awaiting reinforcements. "They should be here, soon." And it was approaching 10:00 p.m.

The Sig Eps were making progress in their usual spot between Chem Sci and EERC. A load of logs is prominent in their structure. More techno-beat music from their trailer.

The ASTs were just about to call it a night on College Avenue. They seem to have come pretty far along with their statue, the theme of which they would not divulge. (It does feature an automobile.)

AST statue chair Julie Osborne said they had been affected by warm temperatures. "We held off on slushing because the water just soaks through and melts the bulk of our statue, so we cancelled shifts or moved them til later in the day because it's colder. We also spent a majority of the first week or so hauling snow from places whereas we typically have enough snow in our yard and properly to build forms."

The ASTs also have trade secrets handed down from alums, mostly focused on the lettering.

The Dog House and Ambassador are building statues this year, but nobody was outside Friday night, in spite of the mild weather. I know many people were inside those businesses, however.

Finally, the Phi Taus in West Hancock were hanging up their scoops soon. Their music was decidedly lower than the all-nighter volume that the neighbors are used to.

A classic lake effect storm was coming Saturday and Sunday, helping the construction and getting us even more in the Carnival spirit.

And for you fellow Michiganders especially (but you'll all enjoy it), check out the Carnival website. Be sure to click on the map links and the other links (Queens, etc.). There's also a new Carnival video for local TV. And a local TV news reporter covered the beginning of the building.


P. S. We got home Friday night in time to hear the incredible Hockey Huskies comeback. What a game! And Saturday night was even better!

Our Copper Country Snowfall Contest is Back!

snow tunnel

Predict the total amount of snow to fall in the Keweenaw this winter for a chance to win a stay at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge and a Michigan Tech Winter Survival Kit.

It has been a strange year for snow in the Copper Country this season but that has not stopped more than 800 alumni who have entered the snowfall contest so far with predictions ranging from 79.7 to 400 inches. Early last week we would have given better odds for a low number but after last week’s snowfall, we may have to change our minds.

Last winter, more than one thousand alumni and friends entered the contest but Ron Streib, a 1969 Metallurgical Engineering alumnus, was the winner with his prediction of 178.3 inches.

Enter your snowfall prediction for the 2011-12 season before February 15th at http://apps.alumni.mtu.edu/snow/

The Fish Bowl in 1984

Fish Bowl
Hi Dennis,
This was a Mechanical Engineering CAD/CAM system that was based on an IBM mainframe. The fishbowl was in the first floor of the MEEM building. The CAD/CAM system displays would allow you to design/draw wire frame drawings. I don’t know much more than that.

Arden White


Hi Dennis,
I certainly remember these computers. They were well-known by students who took ME441. They ran the 'latest' 3D CAD software from SDRC, which may have been a forerunner of IDEAS. They didn't have mice. Instead, a lightpen was used to select lines and features on the screen. You actually had to hold the pen up to the screen and 'click' it against the glass to make a selection. With a full class, all of those lightpens made quite a racket. After I had passed the course myself, I was hired the next term by then-instructor Jim Martin to help teach the lab sections. As I recall, Jim was later hired by SDRC when he graduated. Sheryl Sorby took over the course after that. I was a TA for her lab sections for several terms. These machines were all retired, except for one or two, around 1988 when they were replaced with Sun workstations. What an improvement!

Bob Page, MSME '90



I'm assuming the picture of the 1984 fishbowl is in the entrance level of the new ME-EM building.

If I am correct, here is the story from my viewpoint.

For the 14 or 15 years or more centered around 1982 to 1996 I made many trips to Michigan Tech representing IBM Federal Systems in Owego,NY. I volunteered for the assignment since I graduated from Tech in 1958.with a BS in Electrical Engineering. Ultimately I served 14 years on the Electrical Engineering External Advisory Committee.

Initially I came as a special speaker to expose students to engineering applications in industry. At the time I managed the part of the Owego Engineering Lab that included Design Automation. We were transitioning from batch processing for logic diagrams and printed circuit wire routing to interactive applications for the logic design drawings, component placement, capture of wiring lists, initial wiring and embedding the final wires in the mullti-layer printed circuit cards that the automatic wire routing programs at that time could not complete. My organization had also just installed Computer Aided Design workstations for mechanical design.

I was aware that IBM was offering up to 20 grants , on a competitive basis, to universities for a complete turn-key IBM computer based interactive design system. I stopped by the Engineering Dean's Office (Kreuger?) and found that an effort has begun to prepare a proposal. I offered to review their draft and critique it using techniques then used to evaluate proposals for Department of Defense contracts Although Tech had a good story, it failed to address everything requested in the Request for Proposal (RFP) document..

At my suggestion, the witting team examined the RFP for every "will" and "shall" and rewrote the proposal text such that every "will" and "shall" was addressed in the same order at they appeared in the RFP plus additional highly relevant material . I became concerned lest my involvement would invalidate the proposal from Michigan Tech which was expected to be authored by the faculty. I insisted that in no way was my involvement to be revealed. The proposal went through a few more iterations that l received by mail and reviewed in New York.

When it came time for the final copy, Dean K flew to New York and, there around the kitchen table. we put the final polish on the proposal

IBM reported that it received a large number of excellent proposals and decided to increase the number of awards from 20 to 22. Michigan Tech was one of the winners. A year or so later the system was installed behind glass for all to see. I returned to Tech for a meeting of the EE Department External Advisory Committee. One evening my wife and I were invited to a fine dinner in Calumet where we celebrated the award from IBM and it was revealed that I was one of the secret proposal authors.

Those are not snazzy computers in the fish bowl in 1984, those are just terminals. They were all connected to a big IBM 4341 computer located in the administration building. The vector terminals were used to run CADAM, a computer design and modeling system. Instead of a mouse, they had a light pen that you touched to the screen to indicate a point in a drawing. John deBeaubien and Cynthia MacDonald were the staff of the Academic Computing Services that supported the graphics lab. I helped maintain the computers in the administration building.

Great newsletter,
Ken Williams
class of '75 and '85


Those are quite an upgrade to the punch card machines we used in the late 70’s

Rand Hruska 75-79



The "computers" you mention in this week's "Fill in the Blanks" were actually just CAD/CAM (graphics) terminals - all connected to a single IBM 4341 "mainframe". The 4341 had a whopping 4MB of memory, 2 500MB disk drives (each the size of a file cabinet drawer), could process 1.5 million instructions per second, and "IPLed" (booted) from an 8-inch floppy disk. To give a comparison - everyone shown in that room was sharing about 1/500 of the processing power of an iPhone 4s!

I was an Academic Computing Services consultant and student programmer at that time. After graduation, I spent the next 8 years at IBM Endicott, where I helped develop the 9370 (a successor to the 4341); I am still in contact with some of the engineers who designed the 4341.

Garrett Lanzy '84


I remember modeling automotive pistons in 1984 on the very computers that you depicted in the recent newsletter. Our instructor specifically directed us to use no more than 8 facets to (crudely) model the piston O.D. on our 3D models. I was not happy with the result, and – in spite of the instructor’s direction – opted to try a much larger number of facets (I think >100). My effort immediately brought the entire system “to its knees” and – almost immediately - 2 I.T. coordinators literally ran into the room to see what had happened. Needless to say, I was “reprimanded” and embarrassed; the entire class was dismissed for some time while the situation was fixed.

Dave Lange


No. I graduated “BPC” [Before Personal Computers], in 1979, when the Fish Bowl held tables and chairs for studying, and the new “EE” building had a new mainframe computer in its basement which crashed every time it rained as well as whenever the humidity was high [and taking our homework submissions “down” with it!

Holy cow that photo brings back memories of endless hours working on a computer aided design (CAD) for a roller bearing assembly. The project was a big part of the grade for ME 402 Advanced Problems in Mechanical Engineering. The “tubes” were a recent donation from SDRC and General Motors Corporation. These were the first “3D” design software/hardware units seen on the MTU campus. I remember how frustrating it was because the program used functions like “copy” and “mirror image” to create. But do to a lack of memory capability, sometimes (check that, most of the time) if you tried to copy or mirror too much information the program would error out without saving. Hence the endless hours creating and recreating components with fingers crossed hoping the next function wouldn’t be the last before having to start over. I think they kept this lab open virtually around the clock. I can’t be sure but the one fellow on the right dark hair & dark coat could be me.

Pat Paulsen's Wine: We Need New Bids!

Pat Paulsen wine
Bob Carnahan has offered up this bottle of vintage Pat Paulsen Wine from 1982 (yes, that Pat Paulsen).

The Bid History

Tom Arbuckle '75 $82.00
Jeff Paulson '93 $99.00
Jim Blevins '72 $200
Jeff Paulson '80 $225


From Bob:
Hi Dennis,
We'd like to keep the bids coming in until a couple of weeks before the current [Generations of Discover] Campaign ends in June 2013, now less than 18 months away. When the winning bid is published, the check will go to the Michigan Tech Fund as a donation with the amount credited 50/50 to the winner and donor. The larger the better for all three!

My hope is that other alums might be inspired to offer up a variety of mementos for auction such as Pledge Paddles, beer mugs, letter jackets, M club blankets, WW2 surplus book bags, slip sticks and circular slide rules, winter carnival trophies, medals, etc. Artifacts that might otherwise be lost in time, be discarded, or otherwise unappreciated. It will be interesting to see what might come forth and I believe compile to make a serious total toward the $200M campaign goal.

I have two second place medals from the Winter Carnival 1/2 mile Snowshoe races of '51 and '52. I'd be happy to put one of these up for auction as well, They're even more rare than the Cabernet.

Go Huskies,
Bob Carnahan '53


Anyone can bid. Just send an email to alumni@mtu.edu, and they'll record your amount.You can let TechAlum know, too, so our alumni can follow along.

Old Time Hockey

Referring to "old time hockey". I was
looking for a comment about the "Blue Skirt Waltz" that they used to play in between play time to amuse the crowd. The whole crowd would get into it and sing and sway back and forth. Good stuff.
Keep up the good work.

I started at the Sault Branch in 1962 at 17 yrs old. Transferred to Houghton in 64. Drafted in the Army in 1966. 2 yrs Army. 2 yrs. as a professional musician to save enough money to return. Returned to Tech in 1970. Graduated with 2 degrees in 1972. BS Metallurgy, BS Engineering Administration. Two old saying always stayed with me: If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again, and Ya gotta wanna. My education at Michigan Tech has done well by me many times over. Thanks to all my Professors who were second to none.

God Bless.
