To the members of the Administration should go the credit for unifying the sev¬ eral departments comprising the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and thus making them function together as a complete unit. It also falls to their lot to care for the extensive office work, recording, filing, maintaining our relations with the general public, and the care and upkeep of the Administration buildings and grounds of the school. All these tasks are performed with amazing promptness and efficiency; so much so that we are scarcely aware of their existence. Without them the Institute might well be likened to a ship without a rudder. Wat Tyler Cluverius .... Jerome Willard Howe Francis William Roys Zelotes Wood Coombs . . . Gertrude Rogers Rugg . . .

IX APPRECIATION WALTER WILLIAM MONROE In June, Walter William Monroe will have culminated his long career of faith¬ ful service on the faculty of Worcester Tech. It was twenty-eight years ago that he first became associated with W.P.I. Since that time he has been constantly endeavoring to make better practical engi¬ neers of Tech students. A very practical man himself, having worked up through the ranks from apprentice to first class pattern maker, it was his job to give us an insight into the problems confronting the man in the shop, and to teach us apprecia¬ tion of the workers’ point of view. That he did his job well is attested by the testimonies of alumni; for what Tech man can ever forget the long hours spent in the freehand drawing classes where with a few deft strokes of his dre aded red pencil “Pop” could transform a seemingly mas¬ terful bit of work into a thing horrible to behold; or the days in Pattern Shop see¬ ing the fruits of our labor consigned to oblivion via the band saw. Although at the time, many of us realized but little his potent influence we have come to know in later years the value of his teachings. It is with the realization that Tech is losing a man it can never replace, a gentle¬ man of the old school, and a regular fel¬ low, that we remove the name Walter W. Monroe from the official roster. We know full well that as he enjoys his well earned rest, many are the engineers who have indelibly engraved in their hearts the rapier strokes of his red pencil technique. 122 ] W.P.I
