After B Years at Desk, 'SID Prof Gets Vietnam Orders LT. COL. JOSEPH HORVATH 1,268 Carbondale Students Get State Scholarships CARBONDALE, 111., (Special) — Illinois state grants totaling ;340,000 for the 1968-69 school rear have been approved by the Illinois Scholarship Commission: for 1,2(58 students at he Carbondale campus of Southern Illinois University. : The announcement y?as made >y Frank C. Adams, director f the SIU Office of Student IVork arid Financial Assistance. The amount approved to date or next year compares with only $45,000 which was made available to 192 SIU Carbondale students last year. The increase, Adams said, is accounted for by a jump jn funds appropriated for this purpose by the General Assembly. . Statewide, from September 1958 to June 1967, the State of Illinois provided approximately $22 .million to 41,000 students either as Illinois state grants or Illinois scholarships. After more than three years behind a desk at the Carbondale and jSdwardsville campuses of Southern Illinois University, Lt. col. Joseph Horvath is unpacking his flying togs again for a crack at Vietnam. Although he doesn't shed hte title of assistant professor of aerospace studies until October, the cre\v-cut officer will leave the Edwardsville campus My 28 for Sewart Air Force Base, Nashville, Tenn., where he will be reacquainted with navigation* at duties aboard C-130 transport planes. "It's going to be a little awkward getting used to a cockpit again," the husky airman said, "but it doesn't take long for me to develop my wings." Although he admittedly feels sometimes "like a civilian," the veteran officer is no stranger to the wild, bine yonder, nor is he dls- advantaged when standing in front of ROTC cadets with a pointer In his hand. During 17 years in the service, he has flown as navigator in a variety of different aircraft around the world, and has functioned as administrative and educational officer from "here to Tripoli." He also has a. commendable record as a father, with eight children, ranging in age from 3 to 17, each of whom was born in a different state. His wife, Betty, the four boys ancl four girls will accompany him in October to the Philippines, where he will be based for 'two years while airlifting supplies to Vietnam. "The Vietnam angle is the only disturbing aspect about the transfer,'? Col. Horvath said, BEGINS: Fr!., June 28 ENDS: Wed., July 3 "otherwise everybody iti the family Is excited.about going overseas." The Howaths, like most mill tafy families, are used to the hustle-bustle of moving. They have changed houses 20 times since Horvath was commission' ed in 1951 at Ohio universi ty. After graduating with a die* gree in business administration, he was sent for a year to Omaha, Neb. as administration officer of an. aircraft control and warning squadron, then followed pilot training at another base, navigational school in Texas, fighter-bomber training at Sacramento, radar instruction in Utah, and in 1955 he was shipped to Tripoli. Although an administration officer for security service in Africa, he flew numerous proficlefr cy flights to keep his navigation al standing. Sometimes these sojourns involved ferrying foreign royalty from one destination to another as a courtesy gesture by the TJ.S. government. Upon returning a couple years later to the States, he was assigned to a B-47 bomber crew at Platsburg, N. Y. Most of the. time, the flyers conducted simulated bombing missions throughout the northern hemisphere under the Strategic Air Command. In 1959 Horvath was attached to a B-52 bomber squadron at Ramcy Air Force Base in Puerto Rico flying similar missions. His next tour brought him to Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, where he concentrated on radar identification of targets for bombing. He had to take still further training in academic schooling at Mother base before coming to die Cartoon- dflte campus in mt in ift4 Moratb was assigned to the Cwbondale campus ftOfO program. The following fan, fee was appointed head of the ROTC program at the new EdwartsviHe catnpus. "Due aerospace program had difficulty getting off the ground becatise of the academic space problem "the dark-complexioned colonel mused, "but everybody elsp had the same difficulties, so we just did the best we could until better accommodations became available." The program started out with four students enrolled and a few others taking courses as electives. Classes were held hi the attic of one of the former homes that studded the countryside campus. With the opening of the Peck Classrooms Building in 1965, ROTC headquarters was moved to the second floor of that building and classes were scheduled in available rooms. Since that time the aerospaoe program has grown considerably. Four cadets were commissioned as second lieutenant during the 1966 - 67 year and nine more received that honor June 12. "It looks like the University will have a big group next year, too." the retiring officer stated. "I'll be watching for the statistics." Although much of the Air Force, is built on coW facts and figures, CoL Horvath and his colleague, MaJ. Murry J. Hancock, also associate professor, both identify very closely with their charges.
