College Geological Society in Beaumont and led a field trip for the University of Oklahoma Academic Year Institute in the Llano Region of Central Texas. Bob was also a participant in the Texas Academy of Science Visiting Scientist Program last year, giving lectures in several Texas cities. During the school year he taught the Geology of Texas, physical geology, regional geology of the U.S., and a graduate seminar in tectonics. In February he made a trip to Guatemala to inspect the dissertation field research of one of his Ph.D. students. He has published one paper, "What's Below the Earth's Surface," in Nature and Science and has another in press in The Science Teacher. In September 1967 he will be a full Professor. Bob was the recipient of a National Science Foundation grant in 1966-67 for a Cooperative College-School Project for Secondary School Teachers in Earth Science and he traveled to San Antonio each week in the fall semester exploring new teaching methods for earth science at the secondary school level. NSF has also given him a grant for 1967—68 for an In- Service Institute for Secondary School Teachers of Earth Science which covers Austin and its vicinity. His grant from the Federal Office of Education, which provides for four fel lowship for prospective teachers of earth sciences, con tinues. Last, but certainly not the least, in the list of his ac complishments is his editorship of the national Journal of Geological Education. Fred Bullard taught general geology and the graduate course in volcanology in the fall semester and the Latin American course in geology in the spring. One of the high spots for him in the fall was a short course on lunar geology given as part of the volcanology course by Dr. Jack Green, a Research Scientist with Douglas Aircraft Corporation. This course, which included a visit to NASA in Houston, was a stimulating experience and was well received by the students. He attended the GSA meeting in November and in late January made a hurried trip to Baghdad, Iraq, as a consultant to the University's International Office in connection with the "Texas Professor Program" which the University conducts in Iraq. (Unfortunately, due to the Middle East situation, this program has been suspended for the coming year.) He served as a Visiting Scientist for the AGU, giving lectures at Albu querque, New Mexico and Springfield, Missouri; this is the third year he has participated in this program. In addition, he lectured in several Texas cities and in Indiana, Florida and Louisiana. Fred spent most of June moving into the new building and in July left for Flagstaff, Arizona, where he taught a four weeks course on volcanology at Northern Arizona State Uni versity for a NSF Institute for Science Teachers. Steve Clabaugh enjoyed freedom from the chores of de partmental chairmanship this year and the opportunity to dig into some of his favorite geological subjects again. However, his freedom was slightly "infringed upon" with an excessive load of committee assignments; he says maybe that's what old department chairmen are used for ! He is on the Chancellor's
