SKEPTICAL John F. McGinnis . President Thomas F. Gruzdis .... Vice-President Verner R. Olson . . . Secretary-Treasurer T HIS year marks the twentieth successful year for this society. When the society was first formed its primary purpose was to acquaint the students of Chemistry with current phases of their subject and to urge a reading of current literature. The society chose for its patron Saint Robert Boyle, of the seventeenth century, around whom Chemistry as a science revolves, and to whom is granted the starting of philosophical reasoning and the dis¬ couragement of alchemical and medical ideas in re¬ gard to the subject of Chemistry. This society, which is affiliated with the North¬ eastern Section of the American Chemical Society, counts among its members those students electing CHYMISTS the Chemistry course, who have attended two-thirds of the meetings during a college year, and who have read a paper or lectured before the local body. This plan has been handed down from the founders of the local section. During the past year the society has limited itself in selecting speakers to address its meetings, the undergraduate members having, in the main, under¬ taken this task. This procedure has been found to possess a double value, inasmuch as it gives the audience a chance to become acquainted with vari¬ ous subjects as well as to develop poise and self- confidence in the members who address the assembly.

Abbe Robert M. Taft LL colleges must have a daily, weekly, or month¬ ly publication to dispense college news to stu¬ dents, faculty and alumni. With this purpose in mind the Tech News was organized in 1909. It supplemented the Journal, now the official alumni magazine, as the undergraduate’s main source of college news. For the past twenty-seven years, the staff has done much in improving the News to make it more in¬ teresting to those receiving it. The paper itself includes all the campus news and activities. Its editorials are both timely and thought-provoking. During the past year an outstanding feature of the News has been the series of cartoons picturing collegiate and educational oddities. Included with each copy of the paper is an eight page rotogravure section. This section, known as the " Collegiate Digest,” pictures personalities and events at colleges throughout the country. In addition to editing the news for the benefit of the student the News has as its secondary objective the training of men to carry on the traditions of the paper. The staff for the coming year, headed by Charles C. Bonin, will carry on the traditions of the past and will instill their new blood for the bet¬ terment of undergraduate interests. Page eighty-four

Faculty Advisor T HIS organization, the student branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, is composed of students in the department of Me¬ chanical Engineering.

All student members receive the society magazine Mechanical Engineering. This publication supplies information on current technical developments. Also a special effort is made to include articles which are particularly suitable for student reading. Arti¬ cles which deal with engineering education and pro¬ fessional development appear frequently. Activities, of course, are reported in this journal. The national organization has contributed in large measure to the development of mechanical engineer¬ ing and professional standing. Committees are con¬ tinually at work on many problems. The student branch offers an unexcelled opportunity for students to become acquainted with this national professional organization and its ideals. Page eighty-six
