-p01INSPIRATIONAL MONUMENT TO GRAVITY By HAMPTON DUNN TAMPA --University of Tampa students scurrying to classes after breaks at the student center can hardly miss seeing a challenge addressed to them. A four-foot monument is there to remind them of the research still needed to spun new discoveries in gravity. The shaft was presented to the University on Feb. 15, 1965, along with a grant fox $5,000 from the Gravity Research Foundation. Tampa U. thus became the 11th Eastern university to receive these gifts from the foundation. Roger W. Babson, the noted economist and a Florida resident, established the foundation. The stone was erected with the hope that students passing it would become interested in gravity and, through research on the subject, contribute additional scientific knowledge. The dedicatory speaker, Dr. H: Dwight Carle, dean emeritus of Keene, N.H., State College, explained to the students that most discoveries and great inventions were made by young men. As a matter of fact, Sir Isaac Newton was only 26 years old when he discovered the laws of gravity!
