THE MATHEMATICS CLUB
THE Mathematics Club is a comparatively recent organization. It was organ-

which do not fit into any course offered, or which time does not allow the
members to study in class. All people who take mathematics courses and have
a C average in these are allowed to become members.
The organization meets every second Wednesday of the month when a
few of the members talk on mathematics topics.

of the year was held October 14, 1936. The topic of discussion by George

graph with which one may multiply, divide, and nnd functions of angles much
