Dedication Ceremonies at Colorado State University Dedication ceremonies for Colorado State University's new Atmospheric Science Research Center at Fort Collins were held on 27 June 1967. The $745,000, three-story center, called one of the most modern university facilities in the country devoted to atmospheric research, provides 30 000 sq ft (2787 m2) of space for laboratories, offices, and seminar rooms. The new facility provides needed space for existing research programs and graduate instruction and allows for expansion and initiation of studies in atmospheric electricity, satellite meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric turbulence, and new sounding techniques. Currently the CSU Department of Atmospheric Science is engaged in nearly $1 million worth of research for sponsors such as NASA, ESSA, AEC, NSF, Bureau of Reclamation, and the U. S. Public Health Service. According to Dr. Elmar R. Reiter, professor and acting chairman of the department, the number of graduate students enrolled in the department was expected to increase from 49 in June to more than 60 in the fall. The principal speakers at the ceremony were Dr. Fred D. White, head of the Atmospheric Sciences Section, National Science Foundation, and Colorado's junior United States Senator, Peter H. Dominick (see p. 765). Dr. Reiter presided. Following the dedication in the morning, open house and tours of the new buildings were held for attendees and the general public. The afternoon activities also included a weather modification briefing session attended by members of the Colorado General Assembly and newspaper, radio, and television personnel. Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 45, 762. 50 years ago Army Air Forces Premeteorological Training The University Meteorological Committee, acting for Headquarters, Army Air Forces, an- nounces that a premeteorological training program has been devised to meet the need of the Army for a large number of qualified meteorologists to serve with the Air Forces as commissioned officers. This training will provide intensive instruction in requisite mathematics, physics and mechanics, and will be conducted at certain universities and colleges. Those who enroll for the course will receive free tuition, clothing, $50.00 monthly pay, and allowances of $2.35 per day for rations and quarters. Students successfully completing the instruction, of 6 or 12 months' duration, will be eligible for appointment as Aviation Cadets (nonflying) and will thereupon pursue a further eight-month advanced training in meteorology at one of the five meteorological institutions. While in Aviation Cadet status, tuition, clothing, and per diem allowances are paid as above, while the pay is increased to $75.00 per month. Upon satisfactory completion of the meteorological training, Cadets are eligible for commissions as Second Lieutenants in the Air Forces Reserve. To qualify for the preliminary training, a candidate must have a high school education or its equivalent, and have satisfactorily completed thorough courses in mathematics, including high algebra and plane geometry.
