THE MATHEMATICS CLUB THE Mathematics Club is a comparatively recent organization. It was organ- ized three years ago for the purpose of studying those topics of mathematics 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. Several programs of interest have been presented this year. The first program of the year was held October 14, 1936. The topic of discussion by George Freier was "The Beauty of Mathematicsnz "Magic Circles" was discussed by Ruth Nelson. On December 9, 1936, the Mathematics Club had a party in the social room. Games, puzzles, and a play, "The Eternal Triangle," provided the entertainment of the evening. On January 13, 1937, Nolan Isaacson demonstrated the use of the Trigono- graph with which one may multiply, divide, and nnd functions of angles much more easily than by ordinary methods. The New Number System based on the number twelve was presented by Ralph Baker. At another meeting complex numbers were discussed by Nolan Isaacson and non-Euclidean geometry by Russell Gettinger. Mrs. Eide gave at this meeting an interesting talk on her trip to the Council of Teachers .of Mathematics at Chicago. , At one of the meetings Galen Meier discussed the history of vr. Kathleen Puller told about Descartes and his work on analytical geometry, which was published in 1637, thus making this year the three hundredth anniversary. One of the best programs of the year was a symposium on numerology pre- sented by the following freshman students: Loren Lund, Willard Klugow, Carl Miller, Ulrich Bents, and Donald Monson. The last meeting of the year was in the social room. Reynold Pedersen and Everett Compton reviewed tw.o recent books on mathematics, "Mathematics for the Million" and "Men of Mathematics." After this games of mathematics were played and refreshments served. 11751

THE SCIENCE CLUB HE Science Club was organized in the spring of 1935 by a group of students desirous of creating an interest in current affairs in science. Meetings are held twice a month in the chemistry lecture room at which time programs are given which should appeal to all students interested in science. Membership in the club is open to all students who are either majoring or minoring in science and to all students who have had ten credit hours of science. The student body is, however, invited to attend the meetings. The college science teachers are honorary members of the organization. Mr. R. E. Spriggs is the club's adviser. The programs are made up of talks and demonstrations by faculty members, students, and outside speakers and of instructive motion pictures. During the past year the programs named below have been given. On October fifteenth Lawrence Hope, the district conservation warden, gave a talk on the conservation movement in Wisconsin and showed two very inter- esting Conservati.on Department films entitled "Propagating Northern Pike," and "The 'White-tailed Deer." On October twenty-ninth an inspection tour of River Falls' new sewage disposal plant was made. This plant is new and unique and was explained by Williain Hagestad, consulting engineer. On January twelfth Mr. C. G. Stratton, head of the geography department, spoke on the subject of the calendar. He gave the history and evolution of the calendar and discussed the vari.ous proposed calendar changes. On the twenty-sixth of January A. W. Plahn, the district oil inspector, demonstrated and explained the inspection of oils and fuels. In demonstrating, he performed the inspection of gasoline, kerosene, and motor oil. On February ninth Lawrence Peterson of the River Falls Motor Company showed an instructive group of films on the motor industry. These films showed the entire process in the manufacture of an automobile from the raw to the Hnished product. On February twenty-third R. E. Spriggs of the college faculty, discussed the subject, 'lWhat Is New in Auto-Power Design." Among the new trends dis- cussed was the interesting subject of Diesel engines. Perhaps the most interesting program of all was that of April sixth. The five reel nlm, "Jewels of Industry," was shown. This film gave the complete story .of carborundum and its use in modern industry. The film was preceded by a short talk by Dr. R. E. Karges, who described his visit to the carborundum plant at Niagara Falls. At the business meeting which followed the last meeting officers for the coming year were elected. The following were elected: Leonard Hermanson, president: Ralph Baker, vice-presidentg Frederick J.ohnson, secretary: and Russell Gettinger, treasurer. H771
