SCIENCE teachers, TEACHER training, CHEMISTRY education, HIGH schools, OCCUPATIONAL training, SECONDARY education, EFFECTIVE teaching, HIGH school students, and EDUCATION research
The article discusses studies about developments in professional training of science teachers in high schools in the U.S. A chemistry teacher should have as a minimum, college courses in general inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis and physical chemistry. Organic chemistry is studied because of the basic principles and general information involved and the important role organic substances play in modern life. One of the conclusions reached by the Committee on Preparation of High School Chemistry teachers is that more extensive training and other sciences is urgently needed in many cases and these needs should be met either by decreasing the requirements in educational course, by increasing the number of credits required for graduation.
SCIENTISTS, BIOLOGISTS, BIOLOGICAL research, SCIENTIFIC community, and OXYTETRACYCLINE
The article presents information on scientist Ben A. Sobin and his research achievements. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1912 and his graduate education took place at Ohio State University. He specialized in chemistry, organic chemistry, bacteriology and biochemistry. Professionally he worked in various organizations and his career with Pfizer Inc. began as chief of biologies control where he attained success in research assignment. One of them was the preparation of the first samples of Terramycin under Sobin's direction.

NUTRITION education, HIGHER education, ACADEMIC degrees, UNIVERSITY & college entrance requirements, and COLLEGE teachers
The article provides information on the degree programs related to food science and human nutrition being offered by Colorado State University, Fort Collins. Peter J. Bechtel is the program director at the university. Entrance requirements include GPA with an aggregate of more than or equal to 3; courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry and physiology all with laboratories; and GRE aptitude test. The university offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs. The M.S. program emphasis in nutritional science or applied nutrition is offered with either a thesis or non-thesis option. The Ph.D. degree emphasizes basic sciences with research in nutritional biochemistry, nutrition education or food science. The M.S. degree requires 35 credits and a final exam, whereas the Ph.D. requires a minimum of 50 credits beyond the M.S. Tuition and fees per year are $2,874.08 for resident and $8,572.08 for nonresidents. The faculty include K.G.D. Allen, J.E. Anderson, G.W. Auld, P.J. Bechtel, S. Gregary and others.
SEDIMENTATION & deposition research, OCEAN bottom, and CARBONATE minerals
Discusses the mechanism underlying the relative deposition rates of organic carbon and calcite to the sea floor. Effect of total calcite concentration on the specific depth at which calcite dissolves; Control of atmospheric carbon dioxide by ocean carbonate chemistry; Organic carbon degradation in the sediments.
Published data and the results of the authors' investigations on the electrochemical conversion of carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen oxides and freons into valuable organic products are reviewed. Considerable attention is paid to the probable mechanisms of such processes, the role and position of the radical-ions and free radicals in them, and the effect of the structure of the reagents, the electrolysis conditions, and other factors on the composition and yield of the products. The problems of developing this promising process, which lies at the junction between physical chemistry, organic chemistry, and ecology, are explored. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
