CHESTER C. BOESEWETTER
RUSSELL W. HENKE
  Boesewetter, Chester C., EE '35,
has been appointed Chief Engineer
of Penn-Electric Corporation. He
will supervise all of the company's
engineering activities, in addition
to directing the development of
new products, and construction of
new and enlarged testing labora-
tory facilities.
  Mr. Boesewetter was formerly
manager of the engineering testing
laboratory of the Boodman Manu-
facturing Company. He is a mem-
ber of the American Institute of
Electrical Engineers, the American
Mining Congress, and a registered
professional engineer.
  Lange, Sylvin Rae, CE '54, re-
centlv married Lee Burton of
Baton Rouge. He is an Engineer
with Ethyl Corporation, Baton
Rouge, Louisana.
  Glenn, Al, CE '42 (MS '46), is
currently operating a private
weather predicting service; he spe-
cializes in wave forecasting along
the Gulf of Mexico. Since wave
heights affect oil drilling and trans-
port of submarine oil, his clientele
consists almost exclusively of off-
shore oil drillers. Glenn, a former
Air Forces weather officer, was
hired in 1947 by the Humble Oil
Company to do wave forecasting
along the Gulf. He proved so suc-
cessful that he went into business
for himself. (Paraphrased from an
article in LIFE, October 4, 1954.)
