THE MATHEMATICS CLUB HE MATHEMATICS CLUB is an organization with the purpose of fostering a wider interest in the field of mathematics, and promoting better fellowship among the members. The activities of the club, which are planned and presented by the members, include topics which are not ordinarily taught in formal classes such as mathematical history, current scientific problems, and mathematical recreations. This year the practice of having occasional informal meetings was again used. At these meetings various games, mathematical recreations, and puzzles were presented. The bulletin board was also taken charge of by the Mathematics Club. The first meeting of the year was concerned with introducing the members to one another by means of games and name tags. President Bents gave a short talk on the pur- pose of the club. A Homecoming float was built under the direction of Stanley Palm. The theme "Wizard of Oz" was represented by the tornado-wrecked house which killed the wicked witch. The float received first prize. At the Christmas party a play, "Professor Whizz and His Mathematical Nuts," was presented under the direction of Ulrich Bents. During the year the lives of a number of eminent mathematicians were discussed at the meetings in commemoration of their birthdays. Among those discussed were Galois, John Wallzice, Sonja Kovalevsky, Simon Newcomb, Emmy Noether, Galileo, Rene Des- cartes and Euler. Talks were given on graphical methods of solving equations, invariants, mathematical societies in Europe and America, Moebus or one-sided surfaces, chrystolography, methods of finding square and cube roots, magic squares, use of the transit in surveying, hyperbolic functions, tricks in helping to solve equations, number systems, failure of the unique factorization theorem in certain number fields, ideal numbers, calendars, minimum sur- faces as demonstrated by soap film, and topology. Among the students who appeared on the programs were Ulrich Bents, George Noyes, Marcel Nelson, Howard Teske, Stanley Atkinson, Stanley Palm, Reuben Hermanson, Mildred Birkmose, Ralph Van Sickle, Orlan Soli, William Sirek, Herbert Nelson, Ross Jesse, Milton Rudell, Joseph Klucarich, Duane Anderson, Theodore Gleiter, James Bramer, and Theodore Brandt. A picnic on the mound concluded the club's activities for the year. Marqaref Chapman Eide

THE SCIENCE CLUB BECAUSE of the limited time, it has been found practically impossible to devote much attention during the regular class periods to many of the newer developments in scienceg therefore, the purpose of the Science Club, which was organized five years ago, is to supplement the regular class work of the several departments in this way, and to promote interest in scientific subjects. The club's membership is made up of students who have majors or minors in science. However, any one who is interested is invited to attend the meetings, which this year were held in the chemistry lecture room. They were originally scheduled for Thursday nights, but due to unavoidable conflicts some of them were changed to Wednesday nights. As during the past two years, this year,s program consisted mainly of educational films. These films were obtained from the Bureau of Mines at Pittsburgh, the Wisconsin Conservation Department, the Ford Motor Company, and the Eastman Kodak Company. The films shown this year were: Making a V-Type Engine, Pbofograploy at Work fslides, with comments by P. Jacobsonj, Sulfilmr Prozluelioiz, The Story of a Sioruge Baf- fery, The Infernal Conzbusfion Engine, Valves: Tbeir Maimfactfzre and Use, zvfffal Working with Oxyurefylene Plume, The Story of Nickel, The Story of a Mexican Oil Guxber, Safefy Glass, Fabricated Copper, and Speeklerz' Bezmfiex, a story of trout. Besides having these worth-while films, the Science Club was fortunate in having several speakers. Mr. Lawrence "Corky" Hope, the district conservation warden, spoke on forest fires, which he defined as "any fire out of control." Mr. R. E. Madigan and Mr. M. B. Monsen of the Northern States Power Company gave an interesting lecture- demonstration on the latest electrical improvements. Many members acclaimed this pro- gram one of the best of the year. It has been suggested by members of the club that some of the programs during the year be speeches by members. These may be supplementary to a film, a demonstration, or a presentation of some theory, but they should prove valuable to the student presenting them as well as to the group. This suggestion will be given consideration in planning next year's program. During the winter term Keith Wurtz assumed the duties of Orlan Soli, president, while Mr. Soli was practice teaching in Hudson. Because of the values obtained from the Science Club, it is hoped that it will continue to become more and more popular. Roy E. Spriggs
