Thursday, December 4,1947 SOUTHWESTERN TIMES Page 13 Two Local Residents Play Big Part In Completion Of Lab Ed Furler, Austin Co. Engineer, Supervised Entire Construction There has been more than one "big moment" in the four years since Edward F. Furler, who lives at 2831 Jarrard, West University Place, took up his duties here as district engineer for The Austin Company, Engineers and Build- ers, down in the M & M Building. For when you've steered the en- gineeering on a big new chemical producing unit like some of tho3e they have designed and built for Dow Chemical Company at Free- port, you really hold your breath until you see the product coming through. For all that, Mr. Furler is look- ing forward to the dedication of Shell's new laboratory Friday with keener anticipation than any other "opening" in which he's had a part because of what this $1,300- 000 structure means to the future of Shell's world-wide exploration and production activities.

Along with this was the installation of the usual storm, water and sanitary facilities. Pipe for carrying the distilled water necessitated the use of alum- •ity. lo- cated at strategic points through- out the building. Automatic safety showers that are turned on by standing on a plat- form are an added safety measure installed by The Warren Co.

Actually, Shell's purchasing list will include almost any article you can name—yes, even kitchen sinks—and buying is nation-wide. White mice and black diamonds: Last year, Shell bought white mice for their laboratories—and industrial diamonds for drilling. On the pur- chase list you'll find: pins, planes, hair- springs, film, maps, glue, dynamite. Almost every industry and business shares in Shell's purchases. $13,000,000 at a whack! That sum, price of a typical "cat" crack- ing plant, can be called a big "buy".. . though complete refineries cost even more. At the other extreme is a little purchase of 1 Vi yds. of silk ribbon at 17 Alillions arc spent for trucks and transportation. The mon...

Objects To System For Grading Pupils Members of the Roberts School Parent-Teacher Association lashed out at the new report card system adopted by the school board. At Monday night's meeting the parents claimed that the main ob- jection to the new grading system is that it does not let the parent know exactly where the child stands. One mother said that al- though her son, who brought home all his seat work and test papers, was making grades in the 90's he was rated as a "C" student be- cause the rest of the class was making good grades also. Another objection to the system was that the use of the symbols "A, B and C" were de...
