Organizations Lead School Activities ' I ' he Engineering Council is the coordinating and advisory board for all K-State engineering associ- ations. It is the only unified body representing all branches of engineering. A regular meeting of the Council is held once a year and special meetings are called when necessary. It is the duty of this group to deal with matters affecting the School of Engineering as a whole. In addition to publishing the Kansas State Engineer, the special project of the organization was the revision of the constitution. Loyd Peterson served this year as president of the Engineering Council, and he was assisted by Ernest Sellers, vice-president; Richard Finegan, treasurer; Earl Couchman, secretary; Richard Sizemore, Open House chairman; John Parks, junior representative; and Murlin Hodgell, editor of the K. S. Engineer. The president of each separate association in the department is also a member of the Council. Alpha Phi Omega, fraternity for former Boy Scouts or those working with scouting, was reactivated at Kansas State College last fall for the first time since the war. The 35 members were busy all year with a variety of activities that included a Christmas Seal drive. Scout field day. Wildcat day last spring. Scout visitation for the Engineers ' Open House, and a March of Dimes drive in February. John A. Tweed was president of the organization this year. James Pattinson and Richard Hardy were first vice-presidents. John Honstead was historian, and Wyatt Silker was alumni secretary. Don Simmons acted as sargeant of arms. Wayne Sieh, R. O. Pence, and A. T. Edwards were faculty advisors and William H. Honstead was scouting advisor. ALPHA PHI OMEGA— Back row: John Honstead, Donald Reinhardt, Richard Hardy, Ralph Eaton.

BOTTLE, ORGAN llm I In the Department of Applied Mechanics, curious laymen watched the testing of concrete blocks (above) as they were subjected to an enormous amount of pressure. Fascinating as an airplane cock- pit were all the dials and indicators. Catching the fancy of youngsters and adults alike was the beer bottle organ of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Nozzles with compressed air of dif- ferent pressures made the instrument tick, and con- tainers of the mellow brew resulted in mellow tones. 7a CfUf4,ttee i4 ' Ope n tM ' Oii Perennially popular are the hamburgers fried on dry ice, which are just as much fun to eat as to watch cooking. Besieged by customers, hungry after the arduous Open House tour, the exhibit developed into a concession. All departments in the School of Engineering and Architecture made elaborate prep- arations for the weekend and were aided by the Department of Military Science which also gave demonstrations and exhibits at this time. 93

AIEE sponsored an electrical exhibit as a part of the annual Engineers ' Open House and also entered a float in the Homecoming parade. The Student Branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers has 127 divisions in the United States. Meetings are held approximately twice a month. These organizations are a part of the American Insti- tute of Electrical Engineers, the largest professional electrical engineering organization at the present time. J. E. Ward, K. R. Shogren, I. T.
