r\.m 1« I-J* t-j» Membership hit a new high in the Iowa State student branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers this year. Desiring to promote good fellowship among its mem- bers, who include faculty persons as well as electrical engi- neering students, this organization also aims to acclimate undergraduates to the problems of the industrial world. It is traditional that each fall the junior and seniors enter- lain the underclassmen at the first meeting with an evening of informal fellowship and comradeship at Lynn Fuhrer Lodge— this to create a deeper interest in the year ' s work. In the course of the evening, each faculty member of the department tells his favorite joke or incidental story. Later, group singing is led by one of the members. Refreshments are prepared and served around the blazing campfire. Many of the twice monthly meetings are devoted to dis- cussions of industrial problems by speakers well-known in their fields, while others are purely recreational. Among the addresses were: " Electrical Precipitation, " by Mr. Rufs- vold of Wcstinghouse Laboratories; " Problems in Power Top rou ' : Whaley, Smitli, Vande Nooid, Percy, Brown, McLain, Clem- ens, Schmidt, Keizer, Olson, Gilchrist, Harrington, Osborn, Thomas, Beres- ford. Boast. Sheridan, Noakes, Berry. Second row: Hoehn. Miller, Klass, Roberts, Rowe, Kennedy, CoUister, Harder, Marsh, Senti, Fish, Price, Con- rad, Horn. Bjerke, Rust, Hayden, Hays. Front roio: Ide, Fiske, Posakony, .Abel, Willis, Blummer, Ita, Steen, Temin, Demaree, Johnson, Hendriks. Transmission, " by Mr. H. B. Hoffaus; and " Professional Engineering, " by Professor Jack Dodds, a member of the Iowa State Board of Engineering. In the spring, women on the campus get a break, for the annual banquet is a date affair. Last year it was held in Great Hall, Memorial Union. After an address by Professor M. S. Coover, head of the Electrical Engineering Department, movies were shown depicting campus activities. The Great Hall floor was cleared and dancing furnished entertainment for the rest of the evening. As a special feature, the student branch cooperated this year with the Iowa section of the A.I.E.E. in the sponsoring of several joint meetings. At these gatherings the students had an opportunity to meet practicing electrical engineers and to learn the interesting high-lights of their professions. Officers: Claude Smith, president; Richard Percy, vice-presi- dent; Francis W. Osborn, secretary; William Butler, treasurer. [172]
