Association of Student Councils and Dr. George Althoughs Mr. Underwood could telt it was a type of rocket every one was working on, everyone in- slated on calling it a motor. Soon Mr. Underwood was to know the reason-the article was top secret work on the bazooka. Unfortunate ly the daily test shots down the river caused suspicious noises, so that questions were being con- stantly asked. All workers were given instructions to explain any inquiry away by talking of a new ly developed motor. On illustration of the security probldm was a small accident in. volving a man with a cut finger. The Safety Department wanted to know more about the accident. It wanted to know what the motor had been doing when the accident occurred, what the motor was sup posed to do. After the War, Mr. Underwood joined Quality Insurance at the Naval Propellent Plant as a lead ins ordnanceman. Now that Mr. Underwood has retired nine grandchildren will keep him in the be~ of physical condition. And it may be that he will find time to visit with only friends in the Jefferson County area.
