A. S. M. E. A. Hallier Johnson . James F. Swartwout . Douglas K. Merrill . Weldon G. Richards . Mr. Donald G. Downing . . President . Vice-President . Secretary . Treasurer . 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. In the monthly meetings speakers bring to the students new ideas of develop¬ ment in mechanical engineering and create an interest in practical applications of this branch of 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

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.

A. S. C. E. Ray K. Linsley, Jr. Francis Swenson . Charles C. Bonin . Morton S. Fine . . P resident . Vice-President . Secretary . Treasurer TT HE student branch of the A. S. C. E. is com¬ prised of students and faculty of the Civil Engineering department. The primary purpose of this organization is to acquaint its members with the current phases of civil engineering through the medium of speakers, periodicals dealing with subjects being studied, and slides and motion pictures of prominent developments. Meetings are held monthly in Boynton Hall at which speakers of national reputation are presented. These meetings present to the student a chance to hear some of the practical problems that practical engineers come in contact with, and how they have been solved. This organization has been very active the past year in presenting an interesting and in¬ structive program. The society this last year sent five delegates to the National Convention of the A. S. C. E. in New York. Those men who were able to go received a great deal of benefit from this trip. On their return they reported to the chapter concerning their in¬ spection trip, the meetings held there, and the speakers they heard. Page eighty-seven
