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.
