RE: ENGINEERING DEFENSE TRAINING 

FIRST TERIil BEGINS MONDAY EVENING, JANUARY 
6, 1941 - FORI.IAL E^IROLLMENT 

RELEASE: FOR I.IONDAY, JANUARY 6, 19^1 



ED. NOTE: SEE ATTACHED liEvIO FOR TIME AND PLACE OF K-IROLLMENT ACTIVITY. 
1000 ENROLLEES WILL ASSEIfflLE AT THAT TIME TO RECEIVE OFFICIAL 
NOTICE OF THEIR ACCEPTANCE FOR COURSES, LOCATION OF CLASSES, 
SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS, INSTRUCTORS, ETC. 

One thousand metropolitan Chicagoans will, actually speaking, roll up their 
sleeves and go to work tonight, Konday, January 6th, 194J-, starting at 7 o'clock, in 
the nation's gigantic defense program. 

The one thousand men are those who have enrolled for the tuition-free engineer- 
ing defense training curricula organized and presented by Illinois Institute of Tech- 
nology as its contribution to the training of men v>rith technical backgrounds so vi- 
tal to defense industry. These men v/ill be taking short-term, highly specialized 
courses designed for men now in engineering industries who have basic engineering 
training and whose efficiency cs-n be raised by this intensive training. 

This engineering defense training program is one annotmced several weeks ago 
by Illinois Tech, and planned under the auspices of the United States Office of Edu- 
cation. H. T. Heald, v;ho is President of the Institute and regional advisor for Dis- 
trict #15 to the United States Office of Education, made the announcement for the In- 
stitute. 

This prograjn is the largest carried on by any engineering school in the United- 
States, according to advices received from 'Washington. And it was also learned tivi? 
additional courses are already being planned to start on or about February 1st, fo: 
a second group of two hundred persons. 

This program, originally organized by Professor J. B. Finnegan, who has been 
relieved of his duties because of illness, has been planned to fill the needs of the 
Chicago industrial area. Its prime objective is to provide educational training upon

RE: BASKETBALL - LAKE FOREST AT ILLINOIS 
TECH - 1/5/a - A: 15 P.M. 
108th ENGINEERS ARMORY 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 19a 



After two weeks' vacation for the Christmas holidays, the Techawk Cagers have 
resumed practice for their first game of the new year. This will be a return match 
with Lake Forest College, Thursday, January 9th, at 4.sl5 P.M. on the Engineers' home 
floor, the 108th Engineers' Armory, 34- th and Wentworth Streets. 

The record of one win in six games for Illinois Tech is quite unimpressive com- 
pared with the Foresters' four v/ins and a 33-31 defeat at the hands of Millikan Col- 
lege; however, the Techawks have amassed 176 points to their opponents' 209 tallies 
in six contests which is not dishonorable. 

The first encounter this season against the Lake Forest five resulted in a 4.0- 
32 defeat and two black eyes for the Techawks. The game might have gone the other 
way if the Engineers had been familiar with the additional four feet under the bas-^ 
ket provided ty the Rules Committee at Lake Forest. And so the Techawks look forward 
to their first van in four years and six games over the Jaybirds of Lake Forest. 

Leading the Forester five will be veteran George Harrison, rated as the finest 
the Jaybirds have seen in 10 years. He has averaged 12 points per game while serv- 
ing as the team Captain last year. His running mate at the forward position will be 
junior Floyd Gates, the only man on the squad with three major letters. He is the 
fastest man on the visitor's team and specializes in rebound shots. 

The Techav^rks did have a veteran in Captain Henry Sliwa. But Tech's Captain 
Jinx of five years standing put him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season 
with a trick knee. All of Tech's present squad is in the first year of varsity com- 
petition, and their Coach, Remie Meyer, is in his first year of College coaching af- 
ter retiring from the active professional ranks.

Sparking the Techawk offensive will be Captain Sliwa' s running mate at guard, 
sophomore Jack Byrne, by far the most outstanding player of the squad. His tricky- 
ball handling and deceptive dribbling are a pleasure to watch, and his push and hook 
shots with either hand have accounted for 53 points, nearly one- third of Tech's to- 
tal. Still trying to find a satisfactory replacement for Captain Sliwa, Coach Meyer 
will start John Brierly, senior reserve. John's alertness is responsible for a 
great many pass interceptions, and the accuracy of his apparent haphazard shooting is, 
at times, remarkable. 

Tech's starting center, 6'4-" sophomore, Ray LaGodney, who has been hampered by 
illness all season, should be well rested and ready to go. 

In selecting the forwards, Coach Meyer draws them out of a hat, figuratively, 
for such is his wealth of materifil. Most likely to get the Jaybird assignment are 
juniors Mike Carey and Bob Neuhaus.

RE: BASKETBALL - LAKE FOREST AT ILLINOIS 
TECH - 1/9/iU - 4:15 P.M. 108TH ENGI- 
NEERS APJilORY, 34.TH AND WENTliVORTH AVENUE 

RELEASE: FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 1941 



On Thursday, January 9th, the Illinois Tech Engineers T;ill play host to the 
Lake Forest Jaybirds in a return match of a home and home series. The game is to be 
played at the 108th Engineers Armory, the Techay;ks' home floor, at 4:15 P.M. 

It v/as decided late last night, by Coach Remie Meyer, that Captain Henry Sliwa 
will have recovered sufficiently from a knee injury to start the game. Sliwa is the 
fifth Captain in as many years to be incapacitated by injuries for a portion of the 
season. 

Handsome Hank's runring riate at guard for the Techawks will be sophomore Jack 
Byrne, current high scorer vdth 53 points in six contests. Jack's deceptive dribbl- 
ing and unorthodox passing have brought cries of "uncle" from his opponents, ?/hile hit 
ambidextrous hook and push shots command the praises of the team at large. 

This pair will have for their defense assignment senior George Harison and ju- 
nior Floyd Gates of the Jaybirds. Harison maintained a 12 point per game average 
while Captaining the team last season and is acclaimed by many as the best that Lake 
Forest has seen in ten years. Gates is the only man on the squad with three major 
letters in his possession, all of v/hich he earned during his sophomore year. 

This particular match is somewhat of a grudge affair for the Techawks since thej 
haven't beaten the Jaybirds since 1937. In that time Lake Forest has nosed out Tech 
six times. In their previous encounter with the Engineers this season, the score was 
Lake Forest 40, Illinois Tech 32. 

Rounding out the Engineers' lineup will be sophomore Ray LaGodney at center, a 
budding "Mike Novak" who is just beginning to click in intercollegiate competition. 
Supporting him on the offensive positions are Howard Pendlebury and Robert Neuhaus. 
Pendlebury, a transfer student from Valparaiso University, is styled more tov/ard a

center's type of play, being very effective on rebounds, v/hile Keuhaus is more of the

somewhat unusual combination.

FROM: ALEXAflDER SCHP^IBER RE: FRESffilAl^ SCHOLARSHIP EXMINATIONS 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF SArURDAY, JANUARY 11, 19a - 9:00 A.M. 

TEcmroLOGY - VIC. 4600 

RELEASE: FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 19a 

Culminating almost two months of preliminary investigation, Illinois Institute 
of Technology will give a v/ritten examination to high school students tomorrow, Satur- 
day, January 11th, 1941, starting at 9:00 o'clock. This examination will be the fi- 
nal factor in the awarding of scholarships amounting to Fifteen Hundred Dollars ($1500 
to the Armour College of Engineering Division of Illinois Institute of Technology. 

The Institute expects approximately ninety male high school graduates of Febru- 
ary, 19a, to take the mid-year scholarship examination. It was pointed out by Pro- 
fessor Stanton E. V/inston, Chairman of the freshman scholarship committee, that un- 
like the June examination, the candidates this year will all be graduates of Chicago 
high schools. V/ith few exceptions high school graduations throughout the country are 
held in June only, and hence the scholarships av/arded this month will be exclusively 
to graduates of accredited public and private high schools in the Chicago area. 

The complete scholarship examination consists of tv/o parts, since all candidate, 
taking the three-hour Vifritten examination will have had a personal interview vjith some 
member of the scholarship committee before they take this examination together. This 
personal interview is very important and is taken into consideration before the av.-arde 
are made. As mentioned, the written examination vdll be three hours in length, last- 
ing from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon, and v/ill be held at the Armour College of Engineer- 
ing Division, 3300 Federal Street, Chicago. It will cover mathematics, physics and 
chemistry. The mathematics portion of the examination v/ill be primarily in algebra, 
including such topics as factoring, fractions, exponents and linear and quadratic 
equ^ions. Questions in plane and solid geometry may be included also. The examina- 
tion in physics and chemistry vdll be of the objective type in the main, but vdll in- 
clude a short essay upon an assigned topic. It will be general in scope and based 
upon textbooks of physics and chemistry commonly used in secondary schools. There

will be no written examination in English. The candidate's ability in effective Eng- 
lish expression v/ill be judged by the personal interview and the short essay prepared 
in connection with the written examination in physics and chemistry. 

There will be five scholarships av/arded for Three Hundred Dollars ($300) apiece. 
They will provide for one year's tuition at Armour College and vdll be applicable to 
any of the courses in engineering and architecture.

RE: SOPHOMORE "SNOT/ BALL" DANCE 

1/2^/a - 9:30 P.M. - HOTEL BEH-JIONT 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 



In the school's first major social affair of the new year, the sophomore class 
of Illinois Institute of Technology will act the part of gallant and gracious host 
at the annual sophomore dance, this year to be held on Friday evening, January 24.th, 
in the distinctive Empire Ballroom of the Hotel Belmont. 

Arrangements for the affair are in the hands of two students, one each from the 
former Armour Institute and Lewis Institute - the two now merged to form Illinois In- 
stitute of Technology. 

Beginning at 900 P.M., the collegians and their friends will swing out to the 
danceable tunes of "Pee-Wee" Johnson, one of collegedon's favorite dance band lea- 
ders. "Pee-Wee" was featured this last summer at the Campus Club. 

Appropriately enough, winter in all of its glory will be the motif of the even- 
ing. The sophomores have dubbed their forthcoming social effort the "Sophomore Snow 
Ball'] and have made plans accordingly. Carrying out the frosty theme is the attrac- 
tive bid to the dance, which students at both schools have proclaimed "tops" in de- 
sign. The bid, three inches in diameter, features the school's colors - scarlet and 
gray - and opens up to form a realistic snowball. The dance vdll be informal and 
will not only be the first major event of the year on the school's social calendar, 
but will represent also the first major combined social effort of the tv^o divisions 
of Illinois Institute of Technology - the Armour College of Engineering and the Lewis 
Institute of Arts and Sciences. 

Chairman in charge of arrangements is John E. Peterson, 153-4 North Leavitt St., 
sophomore in the school of fire protection engineering at the Armour College of En- 
gineering. Charles is also Social Chairman of the Armour College class of '^43. As 
a freshman he was also class social chairman and performed his duties in such a ca- 
pable manner that his fellov; students unanimously reelected hira to the post this

FROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIBER RE: M. VL FODOR AT THE WISCONSIN (MILWAUKEE) 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE - I/IA/AI - 

TECHNOLOGY - CHICAGO MILWAUKEE TOWN HALL 

VICTORY 4600 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 19A1 

M. W. Fodor, professorial lecturer in social science at Illinois Institute of 
Technology, eminent foreign correspondent and novelist of European power politics, 
will appear before The Wisconsin (Milwaukee) ^tate Teachers College to give them the 
"lowdown" on Hitler's current war moves. Mr. Fodor is scheduled to lecture beflfore 
that organization on Tuesday evening, January 14.th, 19A1 at the Milwaukee Town 'Hall. 
Mr. Fodor's topic v/ill be "The Shape of Things to Cone", Dr. J. M. Klotschle is 
chairman of the program. 

Eminent as a novelist of European power politics leading up to World War II, 
Mr. Fodor served a lifetime upon the European continent as foreign correspondent for 
the Manchester (England) Guardian and several American newspapers, one of which was 
a prominent Chicago paper. 

According to John Gunther, correspondent and novelist, Mr. Fodor "has the most 
acutely comprehensive knowledge of Central Europe of any journalist living today. He 
is better informed than the British in Central Europe and the foreign office pays 
close attention to his dispatches." 

Bom in Budapest, Hvmgary, Mr. Fodor was educated as an engineer who gave way 
to an overpowering desire to learn the "ins and outs" of European politics. Well 
conversant with the forces back of the present world-wide convulsions and extremely 
familiar with v/ar tactics, Mr. Fodor is a student of and has a wide knowledge of the 
"Blitzkrieg". 

Early in his career he became associated with the Manchester Guardian and se- 
veral American newspapers. It vras v/hile serving as roving correspondent for these 
papers that he travelled so extensively through Central Europe and the Balkans, meet- 
ing and becoming acquainted v/ith such men as Hitler, Mussolini, Laval, and others.

During the past few years, Mr. fodor covered the fall of Vienna, the fall of 
Prague, and he was in Warsaw when invasion was imminent. He also traveled through 
Spain, the Iberian Peninsula, Italy and Northern Africa. 

Vilith the German "Blitz" machine on his heels, he observed the invasion of the 
Low Countries and fled the scene of the Axis' successes iii order to save his life, 
for he was quite unpopular with the Dictators. 

In outlining for this group the current moves of the Hitler-Mussolini war ma- 
chine, Mr. Fodor expects to touch upon such points as the c-bvious failure of the 
Nazi forces to invade England - and the necessity of turnir.g to the Near East for 
oil. He will also explain the Axis' strategy in moving into Rumania and the possi- 
bility of crossing Bulgaria in its strategic winter moves toward Tiirkey and the oil 
fields of Iraq-Iran. 

In touching upon these points, he is expected to reveal the necessity for Bri- 
tish support to Greece, his conference vd.th the former premier of Turkey - Ataturk - 
and the plan of defense when the Axis moves in the direction of Turkey, and the ul- 
timate clash with Russia.

RE: BASKETBALL - ^/"HEATON AT TECH - 1/13/41 
4:15 P.M. - 108TH ENGINEERS AEITORY, 
V'/EN'KjORTH AVENUE AT 34TH STREET 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, 1/13/41 



On Monday, January 13th, the Illinois Tech cagers will play host to V/heaton Col- 
lege in a return engagement at the 108th Engineers Armory. In their first meeting 
this season, V/heaton trounced Tech by a score of 41 to 29 in the VvTieaton College Gym. 

Facing their eighth start this year, the Techavjks are still seeking their se- 
cond v/in, their lone triumph being over Grand Fiapids University 43-31. Meanvthile 
IVheaton is looking for its third van in six starts. 

When the Techawks step out on the floor against the Crusaders, among other things 
they will remember the 22 points scored against them by the team of McCarrell and Ev>(- 
ing. Nor will the Crusaders forget sophomore Jack Byrne and his 12 tallies in the 
previous tilt. Thus far this season, Byrne has garnered 64 points in seven contests. 
However, "Jackson" is looking forward to the pending match in eager anticipation for 
it is to be played on his home floor which contains several times the area of the 7,'hea- 
ton court, greatly increasing the effectiveness of deceptive dribbling. 

Coach Renie Meyer, nev/ly initiated into collegiate coaching ranks from the pro- 
fessional playing field, is still at a loss to select a team which he v;ould definitely 
label as the first team. There are approximately tv^elve men v;hich comprise the "first'' 
team for such is the distribution of skill. Those most likely to get the nod from 
Coach "Remie" will undoubtedly include Byrne and Captain Henry Sliwa at Guard. As for 
the remaining three men, they might as well be chosen by lot. Reasonable guesses say 
that sophomore Ray LaGodney, 6' 4" will be the tip-off man with juniors Mike Carey and 
Hovjard Pendleburj' as companions in the starting offensive combination.

Island". Carr^-ing on in the best traditions of the college stage vdll be a number of 
local students. 

The first play to be presented by the students since the formation of Illinois 
Institute of Teclmology by the merger of Armour Institute of Technology and Lewis In- 
stitute, it vvill be given in the auditorium of the Lewis Institute of Arts and Sci- 
ences Division, Madison and Damen Avenue. The curtain will rise at 8:00 P.M. Sneak 
previews confirm the promise of the Drama Club that the play v/ill be a big hit. 

"Two on an Island", currently popular with theater-goers, is a drama of metro- 
politan New York. It retells in dramatic, fast-moving sequences, the popular Ameri- 
can tale of country folk Vifho come to the Isle of Manhattan to v/in fame and fortune. 
Foremost of their ambitions is to be accepted as typical New Yorkers. To tell this 
story, the play takes the lives of two people - a boy and a girl - unknown to each 
other, who come to the big city determined to become successful actors. The two 
come together in a most unusual manner while visiting the Statue of Liberty. They 
soon fall in love and get married, promising each other to beat the v;orld together. 
The trials uid tribulations that can beset a young couple in the country' s largest 
city becomes the main theme of the play. 

In addition to the considerable acting talent, the eight scenes of the play v;ill 
feature some of the most lavish scenery ever attempted by ambitious college students. 
Among the many sets will be an elaborate subv/ay scene and one representing the Sta- 
tue of Liberty.

FROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIBER RE: ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEVv CAMPUS PLANS 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF 
TECHNOLOGY - VIC. ^600 RELEASE: AFTER 1:00 P.M., Monday, l/l3/a 

Trustees of Illinois Institute of Technology today (Monday) announced plans for 
expansion of the school's physical plant at an estimated cost of $3,000,000. In ad- 
dition, the trustees hope within the next few years to secure, through additions to 
endowment and the development of other sources of support, funds sufficient to as- 
sure the Institute an anniial operating income of at least $275,000 in excess of cur- 
rent figures. 

The plans for development of "a great technological center" were outlined to 

more than 100 civic and business leaders of the city at luncheon in The Chicago Club, 

by President Henry T. Heald of the Institute and V/ilfred Sykes, assistant to the 

president of the Inland Steel Company and chairman of the policy comjnittee of the 

board of trustees. Serving vdth Mr. Sykes on this committee are James D. Cunningham, 

Meters 
president of Republic Flow " / • Company and chairman of the board of trustees; 

Charles S. Davis, president of the Borg-Vi/'amer Corporation; Sydney G. McAllister, 

president of the International Harvester Company; and Charles B. Nolte, president of 

The Crane Company. 

According to the annoiHicement, Illinois Institute of Technology has already 
made preliminary arrangements for the expansion designed to provide adeouate modem 
accomodations for 7,000 students in engineering, arts and sciences. This step will 
equip a single campus for those enrolled in Armour College of Engineering and in Lewis 
Institute of Arts and Sciences, the merger of which was formally completed last July. 

V/hile the entire program contemplates progressive steps over a period of time, 
certain definite projects are outlined for completion within the coming few years. 

These include the erection of a new mechanical laboratories building, an engi- 
neering and science building, a library and humanities building, a student union, a 
field house and a power plant. No interruption in campus activities is involved as

existing facilities v/ill be utilized until replacement is complete. This means that 
both the Lewis and Armour campuses of the Institute will continue in operation for 
the present. 

At today's (Monday's) Toncheon, Chairman Cunningham of the Institute's board of 
trustees presided. The general development plan was outlined by Chairman Sykes of 
the board's policy committee, ;vhile details of present campus activities and future 
plans, illustrated by slides and motion pictures were given by President Heald. 

According to President Heald, one of the problems Vi'hich beset Armour Institute 
for years was deterioration of the neighborhood in which it was located. Numerous 
proposals were made to move the campus to another section of the city. More than 
three years ago, however, the trustees, after careful study, concluded that "the ad- 
vantages inherent in the present location of the school, readily accessible from all 
parts of the city and splendidly served by all forms of transportation, v/ere so great 
that it vifas not practical to contemplate development on another site." 

As a result, steps were taken to secure sufficient property adjacent to the 
present Armour campus to provide for future grov;th. Six blocks of land surrounding 
the campus, extending from 32nd to 34-th Street and from State Street to the Rock 
Island Railroad tracks have been gradually acquired. Follov;ing the merger with Levi/is 
a re-survey of the area indicated that ample space for a joint campus was available. 
Architect' s drawings for the required buildings and campus plan were prepared by the 
late Alfred S. Alschiiler, prominent architect and a member of the board of trustees 
of Ai'mour Institute from 1926 until his death last year. 

Part of the campus expansion plan is already in operation, it v;as pointed out by 
President Heald. This consists of a small laboratory building recently completed on 
Dearborn Street just south of 33rd. This structure was erected by the Institute in 
conjunction wich the Research Foundation, v/hich will continue its service to industry 
from the new campus.

FROM: ALEXAWDLK SCHIl^IBER RE: GRADUATE STUDIES 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF SECOND SEMESTER BEGINS 2/10/4I 

TECHKOLOGY - VICTORY 

4600 - CHICAGO, ILLINOIS RELEASE: FOR MONDAY 1/20/4I 

In line with its recently announced campus and educational expansion pro- 
gran, Illinois Institute of Technology will offer several neiT graduate courses 
for engineers during evenings. These courses will get under way "vrith the 
beginning of the second semester of the acadenic year 1940-41 on February 
10th., 1941. 

Designed primarily to serve engineering personnel now employed in Chicago 
industry, according to Dr. L. E, Grinter, dean of graduate studies who made the 
announcement, these courses are also projected along lines necessary to assure 
defense industry a sufficient number of highly specialized engineers, "This 
program therefore, is two-fold in that it serves it purpose of providing highly 
trained scientists and research engineers for defense production and develop- 
ment progress, he said, "as vrell as satisfying the need for graduate study 
during evenings for those interested in advancing their education." 

Am.ong the several new courses listed, never before offered in the Chicago 
area is one having direct application in the airplaine design and construction 
industry. Eno■l^m as a course in aerodynamics, this course for graduates is 
augmented by two others formdng, "so to speak, short-term curricula in the 
advanced study of airplane design and construction," explained Dr. Grinter. 
"The first of these," he continued, "has reference to the two-dimensional 
theory of the airfoil and the three-dimentional theory of the v:ing. • The 
second of the courses referred to, structural and mechanical vibrations, has 
direct-application in the determination of proper engine mounts, etc., and 
vibrational conditions of high speed plaines in flight under varying conditions." 
^ An especially important course to the aeronautical engineer is that of 
thin shell construction. This course is the counterpart of one given last 
summer by the Institute during its highly specialized graduate program designed

for "key men in defense industry." 

In all, 45 seperate courses are now listed in the expanded graduate divi- 
sion curricula. These courses range from higher raatheriiatics to sanitary eng- 
ineering and enconpass all phases of industrial and highly scientific problems. 

/jiother of the courses never before presented in Chicago is that of 
traffic engineering. Filling a long felt need of the highway engineer, this 
course is developed along the most advanced traffic engineering lines including 
traffic survey methods and analysis for urban and rural highway planning. It 
also includes motor vehicle laws, regulations, and traffic control methods as 
well as design principles for super-highv/ays and traffic channelization. 
Professor S. M. Spears of the Institute faculty, a leading expert in this field,, 
will present the course, 

Dr* Ernest Schvfarz-Kast, research expert of the Armour Research Foundation 
will present a course on industrial electric drives and motor controls. This 
course is another of the group specifically designed to meet the needs of de- 
fense indsutry. Predicated upon the highly technical problem of electric 
motor usage in industry today. Professor Schv/arz-Kast xvill consider all funda- 
mental principles involved in correct m.otor design, construction and appli- 
cation as well as motor controls.

TECIIONOLOGT - VICTORY 4600 YffiDLIESDAY, JAN. 29, 1941-8:15 P.M. 

FOR IMvlEDIATE RELEASE 



First Illinois Institute of Technology graduation exercises, since 

amalgamation of forty-four-year-old Arraour Institute of Technology with Lewis 

Institute last July, featuring the first graduation class of five-year coooera- 

plan 
tive plan students since the 1936 inception of the revolutionary were announced 

today hy H. T. Heald, president of the Institute, 

The exercises, during which sixty-seven students will receive diplomas, 
v;ill be held Wednesday, January 29, 1941 in the auditorium of the Museum of 
Science & Industry in Jackson Park (at the foot of 57th Street), They will 
begin at 3:15 P.I.'I. 

Alfred Kaufmann, President of the Link-Belt Company of Chicago, one of 
eighty-one large industrial corporations cooperating with the Institute in 
this special alternating vrork-and-study program, will address the graduates. 

Dr. Harold W, Ruopp, minister of Central Church, Chicago, vdll deliver the 
invocation and benediction. A student choral group and an orchestra will perform. 

A novel aspect of the exercises vrill be found in the fact, that in addition 
to parents and friends of the students, employers of many of the fifty-seven 
graduates who are taking degrees in mechanical engineering under the five-year 
cooperative plan are expected to attend. 

In an oblique sense, these employers are part of the "faculty" of Illinois 
Institute of Technology. As ormers of plants and factories in vriiich Institute 
students v/ork twenty-six weeks of each of five undergraduate years while they 
spend twenty-four weeks annually in the schoolroom, they contribute greatly to

tions, are allovred to ^Tork under the cooperative plan. 

Ten of those receiving diplomas -.Till be graduates of regular four-year 
courses of Armour College of Engineering division of Illinois Institute of 
Technology, a program in no r:ay minimized since the cooperative plan v/as 
established. 

President Eeald vri.ll confer the diplomas after the candidates are presented 
to him by Charles Austin Tibbals, Dean of Armour College of Engineering of the 
Institute. Institute rriarshals of the exercises v.'ill be Professors Charles A, 
Hash, William A. Colvert and Arthur '.Y. Scar.

On Tuesday, January'- 21, 1941, The Illincis Tech Cagers v/ill vrind up their 
home season against Elmhurst College in the 103th Engine-. rs i.rnory at 4:15 P. II. 
This -"/ill be the tenth start for the Techav;ks. They 7n.ll be seeking their third 
vrin. 

Squaring off at 6 feet 4 inches for the tip-off v/ill be sophraore Ray LaGodney 
of the Lnrinei. rs and the Blue Jay Captain, senior I;enr>' Hake\vill. LaC-odney, in his 
first year of college ccnipetition has averaged 5.1 points per game in nine contests 
7/hile rlakev;ill, Elmhurst 's scoring ace cf the past season has average 4.6 points in 
the first five games f'is year. A pair as evenly matched as this promises an cxcit-'- 
ing battle, especially under the basket on the rebounds. 

For the Elmhurst contest "Remie" I-Ieyer, Techa'.vks r.cntor has nominated a 
pair of G'l'' juniors, Hornrd lendleburj'' and V^ally Futtcrer. Pendlobury creels at 
rebounding and Fvitterer speciallires in push shots. The only "regular" regulars 
will be found at the guard positions in Captain henry Slivra and sophmore Jack "Irish" 
Byrne . 

Slivra has been the true leader of the squad and his driving step in shots 
'rave been timely, Ke has that scoring punch vrhen the chips are down. 

Byrne is the outstanding star of the team. "Vith his faultless dribbling and 
ball handling, combined with a deadlir hool: shot, he has maintained a nine point per 
game average, "Irish" comnits very few personal fouls, but rarely agress v/ith an 
official. 

Elmhurst' s coach Fred Heine -■riLll round out his starting lineup with for- 
vrards, Richard Racche and Jack VonVoorst, Clifton Harm and Gilbert McKinley will be 
at guard. Harm is the visitor's current leadinr^ scorer.

RE: SWIMMING - iJORTH CENTRM. AT ILLEIOIS TSCK 
BARTLETT POOL, U. OF C, l/25/a - 2 P.M. 

RELEASE: FOR FRIDAY, JAJFJARY 2U, 19^1 



On Savarday afternoon, Janui.ry 25th, at 2:00 O'clock, the Illinois Tech tank- 
sters vdll play host oo Uorth Central College of 'laperville in the first of a hone 
and hone series in Bartlett G^Tn on the University of Chicago campus. 

The Cardinals' talent, centers about Harold Henning, v;ho if it were not for the 
ruling prohibiting a sv/imr.ier from participating in more than three events, could win 
a meet all by hii/.self . Last year iTni-oney Pearson, of the Techav/ks, nosed out Henning 
in the 100 yd. freestyle, but at the present ti;ae he is ineligible. The Engineers, 
therefore, have conceded three firsts to Henning in his specialties, the 4-0 and 100 
yd. freestyle events and the 100 yd. backstroke. Tho Techav/ks, hov.'ever, are prepared 
to take runner-up honors in all three events with Captain Arnold Blur.e swimming the 
freestyle events paired off with Lawrence Rademacher in the 4-0 and Dick Taylor as his 
companion in the 100 yd. events. 

Henning' s shadow in the 100 yd. backstroke will be either Earle Huxliold or Dick 
Talcott of the Techawks. The two have taken turns at winning thus far this season, 
and they will be expected to finish two and three. 

The ace of the Techawk breastroking stc-ff, Karl K. Koos is at the present time 
in the hospital. But the Engineers are blessed by a \.'ealth of material in this de- 
partment and it is anticipated that Vic Svagdis and James Bell should nose out Mullen 
of North Central for honors. Svagdis swirns the route under water while "Mo" Bell is 
a Butterfly artist. 

Perhaps the most welcome addition to the Techa\/k squad is John Tregay, who at 
present ia undefeated in collegiate diving. It is a matter of controversey as to 
v;hether or not he vdll meet his match in Ostro of the Redbirds.

With the exception of the relay events, it appears thcit the Cardinals have a 
slight edge and it is here that the Techav/ks are plc.nning their coup. North Centrr 1 
has alv/ays been knovm to be vulnerable in the relay events, v/hile for the Techav.ks, 
the relays have proven to be their greatest point maker. The iv'edley Tean composed of 
Huxhold, Svagdis uid Raderaacher I'^av^, strictly spe^Jciig, been undefeated in the preseni 
season (they were disqualified in one ueet thou^ v/iniiing decisively). And the sprint 
relay team v;ith ituaenacher, Wahl^'ren, Taylor i-nd Blume should v.in easily and provide 
Illinois Tech with their margin of victory.

RE: ENGINEEREIG DEFEI'JSE TRAINING GOITRSES 
IN WAU}:EGA.N, ILLINOIS 

RELEASE: FOR VvEDNESDAY, l/29/iU 



Illinois Institute of Technology'- last night, Tuesday, JaBuary 2Sth, inaugurated 
three courses for the training of engineers in defense industries in the Tfaukegan area. 

The announcenent, mc.de by Mr. H. T. Heald, president of the Institute, revealed 
that an organization meeting v/as held last night in the Arrry and Navy Y.M.C.A., 224. 
North County Street, at 7:30 P.I/;. The meeting v/as for the purpose of acquainting stu- 
dents and instnjctors vvitii the necessary procedures and to obtain formal enrollment 
as required by the United States Office of Education. 

This Engineering Defense Training progran is one carried on exclusively in the 
Chicago area by Illinois Institute of TechTiclogy. It is planned under the auspices of 
the United States Office of Education as part of the governr/ient' s huge defense program. 
The Institute is expending $100,000 for this program in the Metropolitan Chicago area. 

The courses projected for the Waukegan and North Chicago area are for the train- 
ing of foremen. Instructors, according to Professor John I. Yellott, Chairman of the 
comniittee in charge of Engineering Defense Training for the Institute, will be V/. K. 
Burchard, Illinois Bell Telephone Company, V/illiam Shermari, Intei^naticnal Harvester 
Company; aiid Joseph Zachary, CoriuT.onv/ealth Edison Company. Richard Starr, Internation- 
al Harvester Corapcuiy, is in charge of foreman- training for the Institute's Fngineer- 
ing Defense Training program and v.'as present last night to supervise enrollment of 
personnel. 

One of the courses in foreman training, according to James E. Maxv/ell, general 
secretary of the Waulcegan City Y.M.C.A., v;ho has been instrumental in arranging the 
Waukegan program, v/ill be held in the Army and Navy Y.I.LC.A. quarters. Another of 
the courses will be conducted in the North Chicago area, vjhile the third course v/ill 
be conducted in the plant of the American Steel & Wire Company.

Abbott Laboratories Joians-Kanville 

Chicago Kai'dv/are Foiir.dry Public Service 

Oakes Products Zion Bakery 

Air.erican Steel & Wire Greiss-Pfleger 

National Envelope American Can 

Johnnon Motors Bell & Gossett 

The program for the Chicago area v.-as developed after two weeks of intensive 
study by administrative officers and faculty menibers of the Institute, in cooperation 
v.'ith representatives of industry, the Illinois I.ianufacturers Association and the Chi- 
cago Association of Commerce. The result of tliis study, consisting of a recommenda- 
tion for 16 specific courses, was sent to Washington and received the approval of the 
United States Office of Education, authorizing the Institute to enroll students in the 
courses outlined. This program is the largest carried on by any engineering school 
in the United States, according to advice received from V/ashington. 

"The courses," according to Professor J. I. Yellott, "are strictly upon a col- 
lege level and not of the vocational or trade school type. They do not in any way in- 
terfere with the regular college-credit evening sessions v;ork currently offei'ed by 
the Institute for persons studying for a degree, 

"It is not oui' intention, in offering these courses," he emphasized, "to drav; 
persons from the group interested in degrees. It is our belief, and that of the 
United States Office of Education, that the best job that engineering schools can do 
is to continue graduating regular quotas of engineering students each year from ovx 
day and evening classes. In fact," he added, "ver;/- few persons have attempted to 
drop their regular evening studies to join these classes^ and we have discouraged 
those who have considered doing so."

In •'/iew of the fact that the basis for acceptance for any one of the 16 courses 
listed was the ability of the person interested to handle the course, all 2,000 appli- 
cants were personally interviev/ed by members of the facultj'- of the Institute. 

It is estinated, according to Pi-ofessor Yellott, that the program necessary to 
effectively serve the needs of the Chicago area in this phase of the defense program 
v/ill necessitate an approximate expenditure of ^100,000. 

"These funds," he stated, "will be used to provide the professorial talent as 
v/ell as to purchase limited equipment required for some of the courses. A certain 
part of this fund will be used, al.so, to defray part of the expenses for physical 
plant operation. The student, therefore, pays no tuition fees whatsoever - the Govern- 
ment reimburses the Institute for the expenses it incurs in this connection.

RE: REGISTRi.TIOII OF EVENING DIVISION 

CLASSES i^B NF»( COOP REGISTRATION - 2/3 

FOR imZDIATE FILEASE 



Isi up;vard surge of enrollment in the evening sessions of Illinois Institute of 
Technology was forecast yesterday by H. T. Heald, 58/^A Stony Island Avenue, presi- 
dent, in an announcement of registration for evening classes to begin to.-r.orrow and 
to continue through February Sth. Registration for day classes will be held Febru- 
ary 6th and 7th. All evening division classes start February 10th, ending June 7th. 

"Early indications both at Armoui' College of Engineering anri Lewis Institute of 
Arts and Sciences divisions show that Chicago has become increasingly aware of edu- 
cational opportunities offered by Illinois Institute of Technology," Heald said. 

"The registration '..ill be the first midyear sem.ester enrolLnent since the mer- 
ger last July of Armour Institute of Tech-nology and Lewi^ Institute. Last semester's 
evening enrollment of 3,600 students should be exceeded, though our classroom and 
laboratories are taxed at present." 

A trail-blr-izing program f oi' students interu sted in a five-year course ^hich pro- 
vides for alternate training on the job and in the classroom is set up in the cooijer— 
ative courses in business administration ;jnd industrial management, leading to a 
bachelor of science degree, to begin at the Lewis Institute division tomorrow* (2/3). 

Similar in working pattern to the much-publicized cooperative courses in mechan- 
ical engineering at the Armoui' College division, these courses vill place students in 
jobs provided by the firms cooperating with the Institute. 

One group of students will start school ton;orrov.- and another v.lll start v;ork 
for firms paying prevailing v;ages, from which tviition and otlier school expenses can 
be realized. The school group will exchange places with the second group on pjlarch 
31st and an alternating process will take place through five years of undergraduate 
training.

The business administration curriculum covers the fields of retailing, \.'holesal- 
ing, office or personnel raanagenent, advertising and related interests. Basic stud- 
ies in humanities, science and economics are oupplemented by courses in motion and 
time study, factory layout and equipment, production management, cost control and in- 
dustrial marketing. 

One hundred and twenty-three courses, including forty-three in the graduate de- 
partment, are offered in the evening division, according to Mr. H. P. Button, 2242 
Pioneer Road, Evanston, dean of the evening division. 

"The life of the average citizen has begun to be touched by the problems of in- 
dustry and national defense, and our courses are a reflection of this v/idespread 
trend," Mr. Dutton said. 

Classes in public speaking, utilizing recording machinery to reflect the nu- 
ances of voice tones, are listed. Courses in public policy, embodying principles of 
community organization and leadership, psychology of perceptual education, industri- 
al sociology, vocational and industrial psychology, personnel administration £ind in- 
spection procedures are offered. 

M. '<V. Fodor, 1205 Sherv/in Avenue, former European correspondent and expert on 
Balkan problems, nov/ professorial lecturer in social science, vdll conduct a course 
in "Nev/ Govemm.ents of Europe". "Social Politics and Modern Movements" v/ill likewise 
be a course in contemporary affairs. 

\'i. Dean Keefer, 220 Myrtle Street, V/innetka, assistant vice president in charge 
of engineering for the Lumbermen's Mutual Casulaty Company, v/ill instruct a class in 
safety engineering. He was formerly in charge of the Chicago division of the Nation- 
al Safety Council. 

A novel course in color measurements v;ill be taught by J. C. Adams, 704 East 
research 
81st Street, / engineer for the Federal Electric Company. Advanced ceramics will 

be jointly taught by Marie E. Blanke, 1718 North LaSalle Street, and Barney S. Rad- 

cliffe, 804 South Kenilworth Avenue, Oak Park.

"Students v/ho in the past have contented themselves v/ith spare time v/ork in en- 
gineering and related fields, without being particularly anxious for a degree, are 
nov/ capitalizing on their engineering backgroiinds and enrolling as undergraduates," 
said Dr. C. A. Tibbals, 55A1 Everitt Avenue, dean of the Armour College of Engineer- 
ing. 

"This action is caused, no doubt, by the demand for advanced scientific training 
accelerated by international conditions." 

Graduate evening classes range througli chemical engineering and cheraistr;/, ci- 
vil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mathematics, physics 
and social science. 

Dr. Ernst L. Schwarz-Kast, 551 Surf Street, research electrical engineer of the 
Armour Research Foundation, v/ill conduct a course in industrial electrical drives and 
motor control. Dr. Roy Kegerreis, 235 North York Street, Elmhurst, will teach X-ray 
analysis. 

Addition of classes to the program of engineering defense training which has its 
largest national unit at Illinois Institute of Technology, cannot be announced at the 
present time, according to John I. Yellott, 5000 Cornell Avenue, director of the de- 
partment of mechanical engineering of the Institute and chairman of tlie committee in 
charge of engineering defense training.

RE: FIRST CO-OP GRADUATION, IvIUSElUvI OF SICENCE 
AJID INDUSTRY - 1/29/ Al - 8:15 P.M. 

FOR RELEASE: VJEDKSSDAY, 1/29/ Al 



The first graduation class in Chicago's collegiate history no coinraencement spea- 
ker could reasonably v/am of "the cold, cruel world" and "life's stormy perils" will 
sit tonight in the auditorium of the iluseuD. of Science and Industry fifty-seven strong. 
H For the graduates of Illinois Institute of Technology's first five-year coopera- 
tive course in mechanical engineering, who at 3:15 P.!.'., complete an argosy that took 
them since 1936 through uncharted educational seas, have survived in the cold, cruel 
world and outfought at least some of life':; stormy perils in order to have qualified 
for graduation. 

Each of them has had an employer as well as a school to be accountable to since 
he enrolled as a fledgling in the school's pioneering plan vjith the knowledge that he 
was to spend twenty-six weeks of each year in a raanufacturing plant, factory or busi- 
ness establishment and twenty-fo^jr v/eeks in the classroom or laboratory. 

Chicago has not been the only locale of their practical educations. Illinois, 
Indiana, V/isconcin, I.Iichigan, Iowa .-.Jid Ohio, with the industries of Peoria, Aurora, 
Moline, Joliet, Davenport, Gaiy, East Chicago, Hairir.ond, I.tLchigan City, Kenosha, Cin- 
cinnati and Vii'aukegan have seen their Ivmch pails. 

At the open hearth furnaces where the foreman was not called "Professor" but 
"Butch" .... in the plant v/here tl:ie onl:,' fraternity was the sort that lines up at 
the time-clock .... and in the office where every day was examdnation day have the 
fifty-seven demonstrated their right to degrees of Bachelor of Science in mechanical 
engineering. 

Some v.lll take them from President H. T. Heald Virith homy hands and among those 
v/atching will be parents and friends, and employers as well. Each graduate has earned 
his tuition and incidental school fees from these employers during the vreeks he alter- 
nated at plant and school.

The graduation clacs as a whole has demonstrated n'.ore than the individual abili- 
ty of each neir.ber to cross the five-year hurdle. The success of the cooperative plan, 
hailed by some persons as '/isionarj'' and impractical for schoolboys, vdll have been 
completely vindicated. 

Mk Each member of the graduating class has a job to report to tomorrov/, either the 

one he has worked at for five years or some other equally good one. And each man will 
be regarded as having won his spurs as an engineer in the employ of one of the one 
hundred tv/enty firms cooperating v;ith the iichool. 

Thf.t a student could be an efficient cooperative course member and still retain 
his identity as a member of the general student body will also have been demonstrated. 
Such rigid enrollment deraajids were placed on those entering in 1936, it was natural 
class leaders should develop conong those accepted. 

David I. Vihiittingham, president of the graduating class and of the Cooperative 
Club of the course members, has spent five years with the American Steel Foundries. 
His average is 2,86 of a possible 3.00 highest in the class. In addition, he has been 
a member of the editorial staff of the Cycle, school yearbook. He has been a member 
of the student union board of control, a member of the American Society of Mechaiiical 
Engineers, student cha.pter, a sponsor of the Coop Club dance, a school honor marshal, 

and a member of three frateiraties. 

1 

Paul G. 3eckmann, graduating with an average of 2.82, has worked for Republic 

Steel Corporation and taken a part in school life approximating that of Vfliittingham. 
He graduated from Tilden Technical High School in January of 1936, fifth in a class 
of 230 students. This high school class standing could be boasted by many of tlie co- 
operative course graduates. 

Peter H. Woods, editor of Technology News , undergraduate weekly, found time not 
only to have a hand in virtually every campus publication but to play in the orchestra, 
earn a Red Cross life guard rating, and belong to fraternities. He has been made edi- 
tor of the house organ of the Link-Belt Company after first working at straight engi- 
neering projects.

FROM: M.EXANDER SCIIREIEER RE: SPEECH Of ALFRED KAUFFT^'IAI^nI TO COOP 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF GPJiDUATING CLASS, WEDNESDAY, l/29/Al 

TECHNOLOGY - ViC. 4-600 8:15 P.fu. 

RELEASE: FOR THURSDAY, 1/30/41 

KuriQJi rel, tionship betv/een employer and employe as a paramount factor in indus- 
trial progress was outlined last night, l/ednesday, Janut^ry 29, 194J-> by Alfred Kauff- 
mann, president of the Link-Eelt Company of Chicago, to graduates of the first coop- 
erative rr.echanical engineering co-arse of Illinois Institute of Technology. 

Fifty-seven cooperative students v;ho had completed a five-year shop-and-class- 
room course, and ten seniors completing a regular four-year course, sat amid parents, 
friends and employers in the auditoriur;. of the I.!useun of Science and Industry in Jack- 
son Park to hear Kauffnann's address, featuring graduation exercises. It v.-as titled 
"Opportunities for Teclrinically Trained Men in the Business Battle iihead". 

"If you aspire to be foreman or superintendent, chief draftsman or chief engi- 
neer, head of sales or finance, manager or president, a knowledge of men, and tin ap- 
preciation of their problems and needs, and of the factors making for their content- 
ment and happiness, vdll supei'sede knowledge of teclinical processes, or salesmanship 
or finance," Kauffraann said. 

"The handling of men is one of the m.ost difficult problems in industry. Indus- 
try buys more labor expressed in dollars for wages than ali;,ost all the commodities 
that enter into the product tliat is being manufactured; and changes in labor effici- 
ency contribute more to profit or loss thjin any other single factor. 

"Treating men as m^en, keeping faith with them, consulting them in matters that 
involve changes in hours, wages and conditions, are all factors in gaining and retain- 
ing that confidence v.'hich is so essential to satisfactory operations," Kauffraann de- 
clared. 

Giving facts and getting cooperation is better policy than "treat 'em rough and 
tell them nothing," he added.

"Never hand out any bunk, because the nen can detect that faster than ycu can. 
Not that soft dealing is required. I.Ien don't v/ant that, but they do want to know 
what it's all about. Most workmen today are intelligent enough to comprehend the 
facts and to use them constructively. Furthermore, in my opinion, iJiey have a right 
to practically all the facts." 

Knowledge of the facts concerning industry is growing a:-d fallacies and wilful 
misrepresentations .concerning industry are less frequently encountered, according to 
the spealcer. 

"Labor is going into business and is getting first-hand information as to the 
conditions that prevail, and the economic laws that govern it. I dwell on these in- 
dustrial relations problems because of their importance, and also because as you 
climb higher up the ladder in vo'-lt chosen field you will learn to realize what is 
meant by the employer's responsibility to his workers. 

"When, as the years go by, you reach a position where you have to meet fifty- 
two payrolls a year in the face of keen competition, you will realise the responsibi- 
lity is by no means a light one." 

Scientific management, as developed by Frederic Taylor, the engineer, shows that 
engineers no longer confine themselves to design iJid development but have invaded the 
field of industrial relations, Kauffmann said. 

''V.xthout fear of contradiction, I can say to you tonight tllat right now American 
industry, in its determined search for its leaders of tomorrov;, is putting a premium 
on brains," he added. 

"Big and little m.anufacturing concerns are constantly spending enormous sums of 
money to find and train promising young talent for the key positions of tomorrow. Re- 
member, keen business men are much more interested in creating a useful and lasting 
business than in merely making money. How the business will be iiin when they are no 
longer at the helm is of great concern to ^hem. The only real insurance is the de- 
velopment of younger men like yourselves.

■ "You young men whc are graduating this evening from the Cooperative '-'ourse in 
Mechanical Engineering are going forth better equipped than v*e were, because of your 
sound cooperative training in classroom, laboratory and shop. Because for the last 
five years you have alternated between industry and college, you have acquired a fun- 
damental knowledge of the problems which you v.lll face in your chosen v.'ork. 

"Your cooperative college training has given you the opportunity' to mix with 
your fellow nen in the h'ar'ly-t'^-ly of life as well as college activities, to learn to 

judge them, to learn './hat their aspirations are and to govern yourself accordingly. 

I 

■ "Tnerefore, I count your contact with r.en of "che greatest advantages of your co- 
operative training. 

"As Charles Pratt said to our little graduating class of 1901 - 'Be true to 
your work and your work will be true to you'." 

Each of the fifty-seven cooperative course graduates rpent twenty-six weeks in 
industry and twenty-four weeks aitomately in a classroom each year. Manufacturing 
plants in five middleweatem states, one hundred twenty in number, cooperated in pro- 
viding employment for the students thus giving the course its name. At the sane time, 
the regular four-year course, which also was represented by graduates, htjs not been 
minimized because of the cooperative program. 

Each cooperative graduate earned his tuition aiid incidental fees from prevail- 
ing wages paid in the industries in v/hich he was employed. 

No one of the graduates of the cooperative course leaves school for a period of 
unemployment, often the fate of graduates, since he has already worked for five years 
in a given industry. He is regarded as a qijialified engineer who, as well as possess- 
ing a degree, has the technique afforded only by practical experience. 

David J. VJhittingham, president of the graduating class, made a 2.86 average 
out of a possible 3.00. Paul G. Beckmann, also a prominent participant in school ac- 
tivities, had an average of 2.82.

ILLnWIS INSTITUTE OF 1/30/^ - 2:00 P.M. 

TECHNOLOGY - VIC. i^600 

RELEASE: AFTER 2:00 P.M., THURSDAY, 1/30/ i^ 

■ The axiom that gentlemen prefer blondes, the belief that some of them, cherish 
redheads, t-nd other related data were given concrete illustration today by none other 
than a highway er^gineer. 

He is Professor Sholto M. Spears, associate professor of civil engineering at 
Illinois Institute of Technology, v/ho addressed 500 members of the Mississippi Valley 
Conference of State Highv/ay Departments at 2:00 P.LI, in the Stevens Hotel, 
k His subject "Tho H-oiiit.n Factor in Highv/ay Design a:id Traffic Control,", Profes-^ 
sor Spears spoke knov/ingly of concrete highway pavenents and how their colors na}:e 
gentlemen into sane, happy drivers or •anhappy roadiiogs. 

Vihite concrete shoiald be used on the cuter travelling lanes of four-lane high- 
ways since it attracts the heaviest traffic, according to Professor Spears, who said 
it is a psychological truth that this color has allure for drivers. 

Black, however, should be used for the central passing lane since the chief traf- 
fic load will be on the outer white lane and in this manner drivers in the passing 
lane will not be trapped behind slov/er vehicles, a most frequent source of irritation. 

"Observations v/hile driving have convinced me that this pavement color contrast 
is a very practical solu^oion to the passing lane problem," Professor Spears said. 

"Very seldom is a driver observed remaining on the black s'orface for any appre- 
ciable distance greater than that required to pass cinother vehicle." 

Every truck driver is fond of something in red, according to the professor. 

"Slower moving transport vehicles can grind through their gear changes while 
passenger vehicles continue at a high speed on their usual lanes if a colored siding 
lane or grades are used. Red concrete has been effectively used for such hidings."

Other psychological facts are of increasing importance to the highv/ay engineer 
desigriing a road for the motoring public. Professor Spears observed. 

"7/ith the present state of perfection of the roadbuilder' s science, tiie atten- 
tion of the highv/ay engineer must be directed as much upon the operator of the vehi- 
cle as upon "che mechanics of the moving vehicle itself. 

i 

" "If the driver feels an ^onconfortable amount of force acting upon Iiis body or 

experiences Eome increased effort in steering, he v/ill be tempted to alter his curved 
pathway to suit hiriiself," he declared. 

Professor Spears further alibied for generations to come in striking a blow 
thax will challenge arresting speed cops v'ho claim in court a motorist could see how 
fast he was going. 

"The speedor:eter in most vehicles is inaccui-ate," he said. 

"Through observation of his speedometer, .the average driver learns the noise 
level corresponding to his usual driving range. Most motorists tend to judge speed 
more by the noise level of the vehicle than by any external indication. 

"Anyone v*ho drives a vehicle equipped with 'overdrive' can test himself on this, 
for invariably after driving in the ordinary geai'S for a considerable tine and then 
getting in'LO the 'overdrive' in open country, one starts hunting for the old familiar 
engine roar and suddenly discovers that the speed is much higher than he expected." 

Of importance in highv/ay desig-n is ^he psychological fact that motorists, after 
having driven over considerable distances at high speeds, generally have the sensa- 
tion of travelling at a low rate of speed when the decrease in speed has been only 
ten to fifteen miles an hour, the professor declared. 

Professor Spears stated that the follovving is "an interesting but seldom real^ 

ized point brought out in connection v/ith svudies of vehicle action", that "the driv- 

i]ig force on the rear wheels has a radial component opposing centrifugal force and 

that braking forces have a radial component in the direction of the centrifugal force." 

He said tiiis means that "slight power application on a curve assists in reducing the 
skidding tendency."

On vertical curves centrif-ugal force ir. a vertical plane has an effect on the 
apparent weight of the car and ihe passengers, '..hich in the case of sharp suiamits can 
be sufficiently large to cause a vehicle actually to leave the road¥/ay surface and 
elicit a gasp of suirprise fron the occupants of tlie vehicle. Professor Spears said. 

' As a result of this principle, quite an appreciable number cf overpasses have 
been built which give a pronounced "take-off" effect at the usual highway speeds, he 
declared, 

P "An interesting hui^an t-rait is the tendency to continue an activity once it is 
instituted. This trait is related to the mental set or fixation of l- decision made 
in any situatiou and the difficulty -..ith v.iiich fuch a decision is changed. The no- 
table tendency of drivers to overrun curves at night is partly due to this effect." 
Attractiveness of a v/rong patii of travel cause many accidents in the traffic 
engineering world. Professor Spears said. 

"Street lights and advertising signs ha.ve been Icnovm to cause di-ivers to assume 
no turn was present," he concluded.

■ RELEASE: FOR SUNDAY, 2/2/41 

Tomorrov/ afternoon, I.!onday, February 3, 1941, at 2:00 P.M., Illinois Tech's 
tankmen v/ill seek their second v/in of the season in five starts. The visitors will 
be Chicago Teachers College and the meet will be held in Chicago's Bartlett Pool. It 
is the final of a hcme-and-home series between the tv/o Chicago south side schools. 

In the previous encounter earlier this season, the Teachers nosed out the Engi- 
neers by three points Vihen the Tech medley relay combination was disqualified in the 
final event. 

To date the Engineers' record has not been ver;.'- impressive. The opening meet 
was the one mentioned \/ith the Profs. The next contest was at Bloomington vdth Illi^ 
nois 7iesleyan wherein the Engineers suffered their second defeat of the season. This 
again v;as partly due to being disqualified in the relay event. The third defeat was 
suffered at the hands of Beloit college v*hen the Techmen attempted to meet a strong 
aquatic combination with a team shriveled to but six men . . . sickness had taken its 
toll of the best men on the squad. 

A glance at the record of the squad, one win in four starts, although not im- 
pressive, reveals that the matches were lost by very narrow margins. This same record 
shows jimior Earl Huxhold as current high-scoring individual, with 20 points to his 
credit. Captain Arnold Blume, a senior architect '.student, is close behind with 18 
points scored in three meets. 

The junior Earl Huxhold has ammassed his total points as an outstanding Techav/k 
in the backstroke events as well as one of Dhe unbeaten medley relay combination. 
Cap-Gain Bliime, on the other hand, is Tech's chief threat in tha 40 yarc'. tz:l 100 yard 
free-style events. Blume alr-o swims a lag in the free-style relay events."" 



-2- 

Pacing ths Teachers in tomorrow' s encovjiter vd.ll be Harold Havlicek who is ex- 
pected to v.'in tne 100 yard free-st;rle ev-sr.t 'r/ithout any trouble or even serious com- 
petition from the Engineers. Or. the other h£,nd, xhe versatile Havlicek Vvlll definite- 
ly havr; trouble in trying to take the 100 yard breast stroke with the competition ex- 
pected frojT! veteran Techav.k Vic Evagdis. S\'agdis uses the v/ell kiioYvn but very tiring 
"butterfly" stroke to verj' good advantage. 

The remainder of the events, and the outcoTne of the match, are clothed in uncer- 
tainty. Proof of tills is the narrow margin v.ith -./hich the Teachers defeated the Engi- 
neers in the first meet of this series. /:ncl naturally, during this time the Techaivks 
have improved considerably, getting over their jittery condition which disqualified 
their relay combiiiation in tv/o Keetc end triLaaing a strong Korth Central comoination 
last Saturday.

RE: HAROLD VAGTBORG 
RELE>\SE: FOR I.IONDaY, 2/3/41 



Hj.rold Vagtborg, direc::or of the Armour Research Foundation, affiliate of Illin- 
ois Institute of Tec'rmology, has been appointed a nenber of the National Research 
Ccancil Conirdttee in connection wiT.h an industrial s>:ploration tour of South America. 
This ir.forniation was confirned by W. L. Batt, chairman of the division of engineering 
and industrial research of the National Research Council, 

The tour, v,-hich begins L'iarch 17th, will be 'ay v/ay of Pan Ajiierican Mr\:ays from 
Miami throughout the entire South American ccnt.inent. Its purpose is to assist in 
the speeding up of industrialization of the more progressive South American countries. 

In brief, according to a staLement released by the National Research Co-oncil, 
this will be a tour of inaustrial exploration seeking industrial raw material which 
may find more extensive markets in this country, particularly of vegetable oils, fi- 
bers, minerals, pharmacei.itical products and native South American v.'oods. 

Members of the Committee, all industrial research and scientific executives, 
will prepare a composite report of their observations during the South American tour. 
This report will be based upon their opinions of industrial possibilities as ivell as 
limitations cjid will be submitted through the National Research Council to the various 
govemmeni, agencies. 

Chief objective, according to Mr. Vagtborg, is the preparation of this report 
for presentation to the Inter-Arrierican Development Commission and the Department of 
Commerce. 

The entire span of the tour is to include seven weeks approximately, from Karch 
17th to May 3rd. Most of the trip will be by air, via Pan American Airways, v;ith 
stops ranging from one to seven days at various industrial centers in Columbia, Peru, 
Chile, Brazil and Argentine. The longest stop-overs for investigation bj'- the Commit- 
tee will be at Cali, Santiago, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Side trips vjill be

made v.ith each of these points as centers of operation to such places as Vina del Mar, 
Barranquilla, f/iontevideo and Sao Paulo. 

In all, forty major executives of United States industry Vvill make the tour, 
although only a very small niinber will form the NationeJ. Research Council Committee 
to report findings on industrial possibilities to the government. Representatives of 
the follov/ing coiai.">anies vill participate: ilmeric;in Locomotive Corporation, Atlantic 
Refining Company, 3udd L'lanufacturing Company, Golgate-Palmolive-Peet Company, Good- 
year Tire & Rubber Company, International Business I.Iachines, Standard Oil and United 
Fruit. Names of other cooperating companies have not as yet been releb.sed. 

One of the main reasons for the selection of Harold Vagtborg as a representa- 
tive from the Chicago f^rea centers about the prominence gained by the Armour Research 
Foundation as a leader in this field. The Foundation, it was learned, has since its 
inception in 1936 as the Research Foundation of Armour Institute of Teclinology, served 
well over 4.00 corporations in industrial research and development ivork. 

Since 1938, its director has been Harold Vagtborg. A native of Copenhagen, Den- 
mark, and only 35 years old, Kr. Vagtborg obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in 
1926 at the University of Illinois. His experience has been both along pi'ofessional 
and educational lines. From 1931 to 1938 he served as professor of municipal and 
sanitary engineering at Armoui' Institute of Technology. At that time, he relinquished 
his teaching duties to devote all of his efforts to direction of the Foundation. 

His engineering experience includes construction work v;ith C. J. Carlson Company 
of Chicago, as well as tlie development of the companies oi Allen and Vagtborg, Inc., 
and Vagtborg & Associates, Inc., famous for design and construction of sanitary engi- 
neering, municipal and industrial plants. 

A Reserve Officer, he is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 
Western Society of Engineers, Illinois Society of Engineers, Central States Sewage 
Works Association and the South V.'est Water Works Association.

FOR liOliDAY, 2/3/41 

uvdi-gixig into the final third of the season, the Illinois Tech Cagers v;-ill 
resuj.ie play on Thursday, Fecrucjry 6th, at Grand Rapids University- v;hich va.ll he 
the first contest of the spring terr. for the Techav;ks» 

Follovmig Grand Rapids, the Engineers v.'ii.! travel to the Lotor City v.'here 
they v/ill try the Hospitality of Lavrence Tech and Detroit Tech on Friday and 
Saturday Evenings, respectively. 

It v/as against Grand Rapids University that the Techav.'ks chalked up their 
first of tliree v.'ins this season. To even the score v.dth the Grand Rapids five 
for the two defeats last season, one r.ore victory is necessary. 

In tills return meeting, the TechavA:s v/ill he especially' careful of -tiie long 
range sharpshcoting of Fred Grainger, guard. He accounted for one third of iheir 
total score in the previous meeting* 

The match vdth lav.Tence on Friday evening vn.ll place both teams on an equal 
basis v.'ith respect to physical condition. For although the Techav;ks vdll be 
slightly travel v;orn and playing their second game in tv;o nights, the Blue Devils 
have contests scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday at De Sales of Toledo and at 
St. Mary's-- of QrchEurd Lake, Ontario. 

Tlie povverful L3-:rrence outfit v:hich plaj^ed Long Island University a fev/ vreeks 
ago, defeated the Engineers by a 6l to 36 score in their arjiual meeting last yearc 

Detroit Tech is a nev/comer to the Techav;k schedule of v/hich very little is 
Icnovm. Last year the DjTiamics v.'on 15 and lost 2. 

From a review of the current scoring data it is revealed that Tech's tvra 
leading scorers are sophmores, Jack Byrne and Ray Le.Godney v/ith .80 and 55 points 
respectively. They have collaborated, to account for 43% oi" Tech's total score.

" Jackson" Byrne's hypnoti^ng hook shot and deceptive dribbling, conbined 
v/ith 6» 4" "Slim" LaGodney's eiTicient rebounding are e:^ected to exact a deadly 
toll fron tiie Llichigan legions. Byrne's ball handling is of exceptional nerit 
and it is the opinion of coach "Reir.ie" Leyer that Byrne could have a berih on any 
Big Ten team for the asking* 

laGodney , vathin tl-ie 2:s-st fev.- v;eeks has developed hi£ long shot game to the 
point v.iiere it compares favorably v;ith his pivotliue and rebounding v/ork v/hich 
makes him a real triple threat man. 

In the first encounter -.j-ith Grand Rapids ih is season, the Techav:k*s Captain 
Jinx of five years standing caught up vdth Kenry Slivra., He suffered a wrenched 
kiiee vAiich kept him out of action for several v/eeks , 

In spite of the injury, "Ilanl:" has managed to score 34 points v.-hich is good 
for fourth place in the Engineer's scorebook. 

To date, in vanning 3 of 10 encounters, the Techav;ks have scored a total of 
312 to their opponents 368* 

Should the Techavdcs return liome v;ith a perfect record and talce V/heaton and 
Elmhurst once more, they vdll finish their first season under the tutorage of 
Coach Robert E. lu'eyer, vath a better than .500 average {\:an 8, lost 7) as 
contrasted v^ith last season's embarrassing total of 2 v/ins and 12 losses.

FELEASE: FOIl THUP.SDAY, 2/6/41 

On Saturday evening, February- Sth, 194.1, the Illinois Tech Track Team 
will open the 194J- season at Naperville, guests of traditional rival. North Central 
College. 

With a sruad dangerourly decimated by graduations and najr.erouG scholas- 
tic failures so coranon to the engineering school. Coach Norm Root is building his " 
team around so;ae very promising freshmen. Leading this parade of talent is a trio 
consisting of Robert Osborne, George Erkert and Edv/in Johnston. 

Robert Osborne v/as a dashmon for Oal: Park high school. Out of sheer 
whimsy he decided to run the .'Uarter mile. Nov; it appears that he will begin to 
smash records v/ithin a fev; short months. 

George Erkert Si^eclalize^ in the mile with the half mile as a v.armup. 
He has been clocked at 4:30 for the eight laps of the University of Chicago Field- 
house — a time that should defeat all nilers in Tech's comipetition excoj^jt perhaps 
Max Lenover of Loyola. Edwin Jolinston is perhaps the most versatile of the trio 
in that he can present a satisfactory shcv/ing in any of the track events including, 
hurdlesj for Saturday's performance ho;/evcr, he will confine himself to the half 
mile and the hurdles. 

Still listing freshmen v.e find posted for the tv/o mile run Charles Row- 
bothan and Nathaniel Ratner a pair that eventually may take turns at winning the 
event to conserve <jn'_rgy. _ Rounding out the fr'rishraan representation on the track 
squad \ie find an ex-football star from Lane Tech, Robert French, putting the shot. 

Among the returning lettermen are Co-Captains, Karry Heidenreich and 
George Mathe\;s; Heidenreich is the workhorse of the squad, competing in all field 
events plus a few distance runs if the occasion demands. His true specialty is 
hurling the Javelin which is not scheduled during the indoor season. But his pole

vaulting has developed to a height of tv/el\'-e feet which is sufficient to take the 
majorit;^ of Tech's opponents. George Mathews is a quarter miler. Frcn all early- 
indications he vdll iTin second to freshmai; Osbome. 

Other veterans include the hurdle conibination of Richard Barry and 
Don Kiegherj Charles .McCullough another versatile lad listed for the half mile, 
mile, pole vault and shot put; and Hank Jackcwski, distance nan. 

North Central defeated the Techawks lact year in their annual rr.eeting 
principally because the Engineers v.ere not accustomed to running the Kaperville 
eleven lap track, noted for its suicide turns. The runners have been practising 
running the turns for the past fev; weeks end feel themselves up to tlic task of 
beating the Redbirds at their ovm g£'-j-ne.

todc.y. Ke is better informed than the British in Central i'urope £aid the foreign 
office paj^s close attention to his dis atches."

life, for he v/as quite unpopular kdth the Dictators. 
r In outlining for this group the current moves of the Hitler-I,lussolini war 

machine, Ur. Fodor expects to touch upon such points as the obvious lailui-c of the 
Nazi forces to invado England - and the necessity of turning to the Near East for 
oil. He \.'ill also explain the /o:is' strateg;^.' in moving i!:to RrjticLnia yjad the pos-

British support to Greece, his conference vvitii the forner premier of Turkey-Atatirrk 
and the plan of defense v. hen the iVxis moves in the direction of Tui^ktj'-, and the 
ultimate clash \.ith Russia.

On Thursday afternoon, Febn.iary 20th, the Illinois Tech track team v.-ill shoot for 
their first victory of the season against ..ilKcn Junior Col.lege in the University of 
Chicago Fieldhousfe at ,+:0G o'clock. 

The strength of the Tschav/k squad received a severe blov; the other day \;hen x- 
T&Y examination of the right nrJcls of '.'.'alter Srkert revealed a calcivjn growth v/hich may 
put- him out of action for the remainder of "oh'-. inioor season. Erkert, a freshman che- 
mical engineering student, v/as, ir the eye?: of Coach Nor-nan Root, a natural niiler and 
has been developing rapidly. 

Vi'ith Erkert ou'o of the ;^dct"ure, Coach Root is nov; devoting all of his attention 
to the development of Rober~ O^-^borne, fresrjiian quarter-r.iler. Bob was tht; champion 
dashman of the suburban conference '.;hen he ran for Oak Park High School and v/ith a lit- 
tle training and experience is expected to spriiit the ^40 yds. in fifty seconds before 
the end of the season. Tachav;k Co-.Captain Georg-- L.'ithe'.vs, having batter than normal 
proficiency in the same race is expected to malco this perhaps the deciding event of 
many a meet. 

The Engineers arc- traditionally strongest in the field events and Tech's other Go- 
Captain leads the parade in this section. Harr;/ Heidcnreich has recently developed his 
vaulting to a winning state meanv/hile retaining his lead in the high juj/.p. V/lien the 
outdoor season rolls around, Harry is expected to better the Tech record for the jave- 
lin throw. 

Other Engineers v/orthy of mention include Jolon El'.'ood, veteran pole vaulteri Dick 
Barry, premier hurdler; and versatile Chuch McCullough who does everything well. In 
competition, hov/ever, he confines himself to the niie, half-mile, high jump and tlie

squad in u dual contest on Satui-daj afternoon, February 22nd, 1941. 

This meet v/ill rr.ark the reappearance of Ke.rl Koos, ace of the Techawk breast- 
stroke staff who has been cor.fined \,o a hospital bed siace the early part of the sea- 
son. Though badly oi;t cf ccvidition, riarl is expected to regain enough of his old form 
to bolster the medley relay teair. in additicr. to evening things up in the breaststi'oke 
event. Hov/evor, the Techca^.-k squad will suffer the loss of their other topnotch 
breasts"croker, Victor Svagdis, who has been dropped from the squad due to scholastic 
deficiencies. 

This meet being in the south, will be governed by the intercollegiate rules. The 
races are of somev;hat longer distixces thitn under the interschclasLic i-ules the Tech- 
av;ks are accustomed to, justifying the squad of fifteen men \;hich are to v.cke the trip 

The 440 yard freestyle, v.'hich is one of the events not norraa.'Lly carded by the 
Engineers v/ill be svnim by V/'illiari Pov.ers and freshman Elliott Gage; the latter has the 
ability to clip off i. forty yard sprint in :23 seconds after swirjning aiiy distance 
over the 100 yard event. 

In the 150 yd. backstroke, juniors Earle Huxhold and Dick Talcott are expected 
to battle it out bevw-een themselves for the supremacy of the event. In addition, Earli 
svdms tne initial leg of Tech's highly successful medley relay team; Dick swim.s number 
three on the freestyle relay team. 

For years the only weak spot on tJi otherwise wll balanced squad vir.s the fancy 
diving event. That \/eakness is no longer v.'ith the Techav/ks. Freshman Jolin Trejay has 
managed to v/in m.ore times than he has placed second. He has never fared i.orse.

RE: SECOND EI^GINEERING DEFETJSE TRAINING 
PROGRAIjI - REGISTRATION NOW UNDER WAY 
ENROLLMENT - 3/10-15/41, INCL. 

FOR ILITffiDlATE RELEASE 



Chicagoans working in "key" industries, those qualifying as engineers and tech- 
nical men, T;ill have another opportunity to take "up-grading" engineering training de- 
signed to raise their efficiency for specific jobs in the United States' expanding in- 
dustrial defense program. 

I' This was learned today from H. T. Heald, President of Illinois Institute of Tech- 
nology, who said that confirmation had just been received from 7/ashington authorizing 
the south side engineering school to proceed Y.lth the training of a second group of 
approximately 1500 persons under the supplementary engineering defense training pro- 
gram. 

The Institute in Jcinuary of this year enrolled 1600 persons under this program 
sponsored by government funds through the United States Office of Education. The 
courses v^ere designed to forestall a shortage of highly trained men and engineers 
whose talents were vitally important to defense industries. Sixteen courses given in 
60 separate sections were begun January 6th. i.lany of the courses are being presented 
in South Chicago areas as well as in Kaukegan and North Chicago, in addition to the 
Institute's tv/o campuses. 

The second program, which is now in process of organization, will contain in its 
curriculum many of the courses listed in the first program. This, according to offi- 
cials of the Institute, is due to the fact that Chicago industry is sorely in need of 
the type of trainedinen which those courses will provide. 

Some of the most apparent shortages are in trained personnel who can cope with 
inspection methods, personnel selection end training. Other shortages are: foremen of 
excellent caliber, tool, jig and die designers, and time and motion study experts.

In addition to the recurrent demand for men v/ith such training, riany others vvho 
have knowledge of explosives, stearn pov/er plants, diesel engines and others will be 
trained under the second program shortly to be organized. 
j_ Pre-registrations for the second program are now being taken in writing by the 
Defense Training Coiamittee of the Institute, of which Professor J. I. Ysllott, he«.d 
of mechanical engineering, is chairman. This will be followed by personal letters to 
the applicants advising them of dates of interviews and fomal enrollnent. Formal en- 
rollment, according to Professor Yellott, will be held during the week of March 10th 
to 15th, from 7 until 9 o'clock in the evening, except Saturday when the hours will 
be 1 to 4. o'clock in the afternoon. All persons interested id.ll be required to ap- 
pear at the Institute's south side campus, Armo'or College of Engineering, 3300 Federal 
Street, for a required personal interviev;. 

No tuition will be charged of the study for any one of the courses. The entire 
cost of the program at the Institute, which is e:qDected to be in the neighborhood of 
$50,000 for the second program, will be underwritten by the Federal Government i-hrough 
a $9,000,000 Congressional appropriation. The student, however, must provide his ovm 
drafting instruments and textbooks. 

The courses will be given only during evenings so as to serve the purpose for 
which they were initially organized in the Chicago area. That is, to up-grade the 
efficiency of the defense industrial worker who is currently emploj'-ed in the Chiceigo 
industrial area so that persons with lesser experience and limited engineering or 
teclinical training can be used at the bottom of the personnel structure. 

An explsjiation of this "up-grading" program v/as given by President H. T. Heald. 
He said: "We are expecting to effectively train young chemical engineers, for in- 
staiice, in the handling and inspection of explosives so that the older man, the one 
vdth more experience, can be freed of the task of such inspection for more worthivhile 
application of his specialized knowledge. V/e, among other things, are training men 
in the job of carrying out detailing of designs prepared by experts so that the

designer can proceed v;ith continuous design v/ork. Sinilarly, our problem is the train- 
ing of foremen in correct techniques, and electrical sngineers in the specific prob- 
lems of coKimunications, as well as many other highly specialized fields. 

"Our program," he explained, "is designed to cope ■..dth the problem of inadequate 
supply of such men. The engineering colleges -doroughout the United States will gradu- 
ate some 12,000 engineers in June. This is but 2% of the expected demand. l<e must 
do something to solve this problem and this is but one step towards its solution." 
- The courses included in this second group are i:i many instances duplicates of 
courses in the first group now under "»vay. They are similarly on a college level and 
tuition-free. In many instances, the pre-requisitss require of the enrollees as much 
as a full four years of college engineering study or the equivalent in industrial ex- 
perience. Other course'j require trainir.g in college through mathematics| while others 
require only graduation from a technical high school. 

According to Professor J. I. i'cllott, the program does not provide a general en- 
gineering education and it is not designed to supplant the regular four year engineer- 
ing curricula of the Institute. No college credit can be given or vail be given for 
any of the courses. Ke emphasized the fact that "the student is under no obligation 
to the Federal government other than to apply hiuself diligently to his studies and 
that there is no change in the student's DRAFT STATUS other than that which his local 
Draft Board sees fit to make. 

Courses projected for this second program itnd which will begin March 17th, are: 
advanced testing methods j diesel engine theory; electronics and communications; ele- 
mentary chemical engineering; mechanics and machine design; EXPLOSIVES; foreman train- 
ing; inspection methods and quality control; introduction to electrical engineering; 
metallography; introduction to strength of materials; materials testing laboratory; 
metallurgy; personnel training and selection; plastics; production methods; SAFETY 
EJGINEERING; steam power plants and automatic control; time and motion study; and 
tool design.

Because of the fact that many persons with excellent qualifications for certain 
of the courses listed do not have the necessary pre-requisites, the conunittee urges 
that all persons interested present theniselvef: at the Institute fcr a personal inter- 
view v/ith a faculty counsellor. In the last ejialysis, student entrance to the course 
will be determined by his ability to handle th-j v;ork to be oaught. 

According to Professor J. I. Yellott, "i.he Institute and the United States Of- 
fice of Education are especially desirous of receiving applications from persons not 
currently engaged in defense industry v;ho have had f unds-jiien tal engineering training. 
It is hoped that such personsj, ^cy tclcing intensive training, caii qualify for vrork in 
defense industry." 

Upon conipletion .of a specific course, uhe student may qualify for immediate en- 
trance to defense industry. No jobs are guaranteed, although tlie excellent services 
of the Institute placement department and the services of the Federal and State em- 
ployment agencies and the Civil Service Commission v/ill be made available. 

Members of the Institute defense training committee includes Professor Yellott^ 
emeritus dean of engineering, F. A. Rogers; head of civil engineering, Phil Huntleyj 
and vice-president, L. E. Grinter.

FROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIB?Ji REs ILLINOIS TECH TRACK'lEN TO ivlIDVEST MEET 

ILLINOIS IMSTITITTL OF NOR'TH CSIJTRaL COLLEGE, NAPERVILLE, ILL. 

TECHHOLOGY - VIC. 4 600 3/1/-U 

RELE^^SE: FOR SATURDAY, 1>/\/LX 

For the coming Midwest Invitational Tri^ck meet to be held at Naperville, Illi- 
nois, on Saturday, Mtrch 1st, sponsored by North Central College, Coach Norm Root of 
Illinois Tech is sending seniors George i,Iatthev/s and John Elv/ood| jiiniors Harry Hei- 
djnreich, V*ayne IvlcCullough and Dick Barry; and sophomore Don Keigher. 

IVayne McCullough is perhaps the more versatile of the group. In a triangular 
meet held last Wednesday, he scored in the sile, half-mile, high jump and pole vault. 
In addition to this, he is a member of the relay team, puts the shot, runs the two- 
mile and both hurdles if occasion dtmands. 

John Elv/ood will probably be more apt to score than any of the other contestants 
since his pole vaulting is outstanding. Co-captain Harry Haidenreich in the present 
season has developed his vaulting to a point equal to that of Elwooa and it is quite 
possible that he vdll beat out his teammate in this event. 

Tech's othei- Co-captain, George Matthev/s specializes in the quarter-mile sprint 
but of late he has been nosed out in the Engineer's past two meets by Techav;k Bob Os- 
borne who will be ineligible for the meet because of his freshman status. 

For the hurdle races, Coach Root is sending his timber- topping combination of 
Dick Barry and Don Ktigher. This combination, vAile not sensational, has presented 
a fine showing over the general run of com.petition and the possibility of scoring is 
not out of the question. 

The freshman eligibility rule is responsible for the rather sketchy group that 
Tech is sending and were it not for that ruling Tech would most likely make a very de- 
cent showing in the team st£Jiding. Hoi/ever, as it is Tech vdll not have a relay team 
entered.

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF OF ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF TECHMCLOGY 

TECHNOLOGT - VIC. 46OO 3/lU/Ui- ~ 3:30 F.I.I. - GOODMM THEATER 

FOR liU-IEDIATE RELEASE 

The first annual concert of the combined, musical clubs of Illinois Institute of 
Technology will be presented at Goodnai-i Hiec.~-.er Friday, Ilarch 14-, at 8:30 P.M. 

For five ;/earG 0. Gordon Erickson, 510 Bavis Street, Evanston, Illinois, con- 
poser and coach of the Illinois Tech Men's Glee Club .ind Orchestra, has offered his 
Armour Institute of TecJrmology r^iusical clubs in a 3i:.:ilar annual affair. When Armour 
Institute merged last July with Lewis In;.titute, Professor Erickson continued at his 
post, this time with the complement of a Lewis girls' glee club in an advanced state 
of organization. 

This year two draraaLic tableaux, presented by members of tb.e Girls' Glee Club, 
will lend color to the progTarii. The first, based on Brahm' s Hi-ingarian Dance, No. ^, 
to be played by the Orchestra, v/ill group H^angarian peasant girls about a aieguneur 
or gypsy fiddler (the first violinist) as ho plays an interpolation of the czardas 
strains of the muvoic. 

The second will interpret the exotic Archer' s Dance of Borodin, with the beauti- 
ful legend of th^j three queens slain by an archer coming to life against the vocal 
background of the combined Glee Clubs. 

Both choral units of the merged schools had often been presented to the public 
through road tours, radio appearances and sporadic school and organization programs. 
Their union has formed perhaps the most effective and popular cultural link to result 
from the physical merger 01 the two institutions. Student interest at both south side 
and west side campuses has flared to an unprecedented peak. 

V/ith but a handful of coeds to call on for soprano parts a year ago this time. 
Professor Erickson now commands forty trained women's voices. They are the pick of 
some 2,000 available.

Professor Brici-cson' s range of choica of musical literature has been increased 
iioineasurably thereby. Ths traditioneJ. hobby of engineers has been the several forms 
of music. Armoior College of Engineering, as the south side lonit of the Institute is 
now called, has bred a deep regard for extra-curricular luusical activity th^t might, 
in another school, be devoted to an athletic team. 

A measure of this devotion to sharps and flats as well as wrenches and slide- 
rules can be instanced from "Lhe daily classical record reciteils conducted at the noon 
hour as a fixed part of undergraduate life at Armour College. This feature has late- 
ly been inaugurated at Lewis Institri.te. 

An ambitious musical season, planned for next year v/hen male and female elements 
of larger choral v*orks v/ili have been thoroughly articulated, vdll have its provievv' 
at the forthcoming v/inter concert. 

The Orchestra will number forty players and the Men's Glee Club seventy-five 
voices. Robert iVlead, 723-4 North Clark Street, a senior cher.ilcal engineer, vdll be a 
tenor soloist; Robert Hemm.cii, 204,8 North Sa-,,yer AvenuQ, a junior electrical engineer, 
will be a baritone soloistj Gus Kustcikas, 3236 South Michigan Avenue, a senior chemi- 
cal ongineer, will be a violin soloist; uid Roy Hrubes, 4-339 V/est 23rd Place, Cicero, 
will be a trombone soloist. 

The Men's Glee Club president is Jiones V/. Murray, 5633 South Sangamon Street, a 
Senior mechanical engineer, .-vhoso voice coi.jTicaids both baritone 'Jid tenor registers. 
Ho is active in several school societies and is a columnist of Teclinology No'A'S , under-

THURSDAY, 3/20^1 - 12:15 P. Li. 



RELEASE: FOR SLT)JDAY, 3/1 6/U 

Dr. L. E. Grinter, 1321 East 56th Street, vice-president of Illinois Institute 
of Technology aaid dean of the graduate school, will address the regular vveekly meet- 
ing of the Triangle Lions Club at Irving Park Y.M.C.A., ^215 V.'est Irving Park Road, 
Thursday, March 20th, at 12:15 P.M. 

Supplementary^ engineering defense training courses, set up under government spon- 
sorship to "up-grade" efficiency of Chicagoans in key defense industries will be the 
topic of Dr. Grinter' s talk. 

Illinois Institute of Teclmology maintains an engineering defense training pro- 
gram for the Chicago area and, as a member of the Institute's committee on the pro- 
gram. Dr. Grinter is an authority on the subject. A second section of training courses 
for 1500 persons will begin tonorrov.', March 17th, 19/^1. 

"The Institute in January enrolled 1,600 persons ui-ider the United States Office 
of Education-sponsored program," Dr. Grinter said. 

"The second section of the program i.ill contain in its curriculum many of the 
courses listed in the first. Chicago industry btill is greatly in need of trained 
men. There must be no shortage." 

Among shortages now existing, vaich only trained personnel can relieve, are in 
inspection methods, personnel selection and training, forenanship, design of tools and 
dies, and time and motion study. 

Dr. Grinter v;as educated at the University of Kansas and the University of Il- 
linois, and combines experience in the engineering departments of large corporations 
with experience in educational institutions. He has made outstanding contributions 
to basic knoivledge in structural engineering. From 1928 to 1937 he was Professor of 
Structural Engineering at the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, carrying

on research and teaching structural engineering, rie came to Arnour Institute in 1937 
as Director of the Department of Civil ^Engineering and Dean of the Graduate Division. 
Dr. Grinter is a raeaber of vSigna Xi, Tau Beta Pi, Americrm Society of Civil En- 
gineers, and Society for Promotion of Engineering i-ducation, and is a registered Struc- 
tural Engineer in Illinois. He is the author of a standard series of textbooks, as 
\iell as many technical papers, and although only thirty-nine years of age, has already 
been an officer of many national and local engineering societies. Under his direction, 
the graduate cours?.s at Illinois Institute of Technology have developed rapidly, and 
his leadership has proved an inspiration to the highest scholastic attain-ient on the 
part of students and faculty.

Release: FOR THURSDAY, 3/6/-a 



Harold Vagtborg, Director, Arncur F-esearch Foiindation, affiliate of Illiiois In- 
stitute of Schiiology, selected as one of six persons to form a cohiruittee to report on 
South Auerican coromercial and industrial conditions, v.dll leave Chicago to conftr vvith 
government officials on March 1/ith, prior to a tour of South Anerica. The conference 
will be held in Washington's Shorehaci Hotel. 

■ Invitation to the conference was extended by s.. L. Batt, Depuity DirecLor of the 

r 

production division of t,he Office of Production h.ar.agecent; Jesse H. Jones, Secretary 
of Commerce, and llelson A. Rockefeller, Coordinator of Commercial and Cultural Rela- 
tions bet.\,een the American Republics. 

The committee of six \dll leave 'Washington March 15'th for MicuT.i where they will 
join a group of 40 industrialists for the projected National Rese'arch Council tour of 
South Araeiica. 

Broadly, the purpose of the South Anoric£:n tour, according to Mr. Vagtborg, "is 
to assist in speeding-up of industritlisation of zhe more progressive South i\raerican 
countries." 

The tour, which begins March 17th, i,ifill be by v;ay of Pan American Air»;ays from 
Miami throughout the entire South Americjoi continent. In brief, according to a state- 
ment released by the Kationi.l Research Council, tnis will be i. tour of industrial ex- 
ploration seeking industrial rav/ raateria.ls which may find more extensive markets in 
this country, particularly of vegetable oils, fibers, minerals, pharmaceutical pro- 
ducts and native South American vfoods. 

Members of the committee, all industrial research and scientific executives, 
will prepare a composite report of their observations during the South .American tour. 
This report will be based upon their opinions of industrial possibilities as v.ell as 
limitations and vdll be submitted through the Kati.onal Research Council to the various

The entire span of the tour is to include seven v/eeky approxiiaately, from Mcipch 
th to May 3rd. Host of the trip will be by air, via Pan AmeriCc-Ji Airways, '..Ith stops 
nging from one to seven diiys at various industrial centers in Columbia, Peru, '-'hile, 
azil and Argentine. The longest stop-overs for investigation by the Corjnittee vdll 

at Call, Santiago, Buenos Aires and Kio de Janeiro. Side trips will be made vdth 
ch of these points as centers of operation xo sucn places as Vina del Mar, Barran— 
ilia, L'lonte video -ind Sao Paulo. 

In ell, forty major e::GCUtives of United States industry will make the tour, al- 
ough only a very small nuriiber will form the Nations. 1 Research Council Committee to 
port findings on industrial possibilities to the govemnent. Rcpri^suntatives of the

mes of otht,r coopera-cing compcjiies have not us yet been released. 

On -J of the main reasons for the selection of Harold Vagtborg -: s a reprosenta- 
,ve from the Chicago area centers i.bout the prominence gained by the Armour Research 
undation as a leader in this field. The Foijuidation, it was learned, has since its 
.ception in 1936 as the Research Foundation of Armour Institute of Tecluiology, served 
:11 over 400 corporations in industrial research and development "..'ork.

RELEASE: FOR FRIDAY, 3/7/4-1 



Illinois Tech's tanksters v.lll play host to Illinois ■-'esleytoi in a return en- 
gagement Saturday, March 3th, tlie ls.tter having nosed out Tech in a January encounter 
36 to 30. The dual meet is scheduled to be held in Bartlett Pool on University of Chi- 
cago campus at 2:30 P.M. 

Earle Huxhold is the Techav/ks' uainstay and learieing scorer at the present time. 
A junior, Earle has backstroked his Vi^ay to this position o In a recent meet ivith De 
Pauw University, Earle v;as the only Engineer to garnei' a first place. The 150 yd. 
backstroke was the event in \;hich he v/as victorious. 

perhaps the most improved of iny of the Tecu:.Vtfk spJ.ashers this season is junior 
Lawrence Rademacher in tl-ie shoroer freestyle distar:ces. V/ith the "esleyeji meet com- 
ing up. Coach McGillivray rates him as the. squatd's n'omber-one freestyler and a poten- 
tial point winner in the 4-0-yd. event. In the lOU-yd. freestyle he v.dll compete with 
Alderson, ace of the l^esleyan tecan, v^ho also s'.'ims the 220, Both lads are component 
parts of their ref-.poctive relay teiLms, Radeiiiacher being number-one man of the Techav/k 
quartet while Alderson is anchor maji for Wesley:ai. 

One of the toughest of raany bad brocJcs suffered by the Engineer squad this sea- 
son was the hospitalization of its star broastroker Karl Koos. Junior Koos has en- 
tered the tank once again, hov/ever, and is rapidly regaining his strength. By Satur- 
day, Karl should be in the condition necessary to win the brcciststroke event as well 
as providing a comfortable margin for the anchor man on the medley relay team. 

All in all, the Engineers expect to v/alk off with the meet since the previous 
c:.;e was swum under the most, adverse conditions for the Techawks.

BOXING IJIEET ?JITH VALPARAISO - 3/7 Al 

RELEASE: FOR THURSDAY, 3/6 Al 



Illinois Tech's new scarlet and grey uniforms vdll be on parade as a pre-Spring 
fashion note \/hen the Techav/ks engage t;vo foes Friday, March 7, in track and boxing 
respectively. 

Coach Norm Root's human htybumers '.Till take on the track team of Loyola Univer- 
sity of Chicago at -4:30 P. LI. that day at University of Chicago fieldhouse on the fa- 
mous clay track v.'hich has seen so many records broken. 

Fistic tui,or Bernard "Sonny" Weissnan v;ill send his leather-pushers out of tovm 
to meet the Valparaiso University in an evening fiffair for their first thoroughgoing 
competition since the Techawks figured in the novice and open division of the recent 
Golden Gloves Tournament. 

Loyola University is expected to offer strong competition to the Techawk track- 
sters in nearly all events. V.'inner in a triangular meet against Chicago Teachers Col- 
lege and Morton Junior College fuid loser to V-'ilson Juiiior College, and v»'ith an indif- 
ferent showing to their credit in last Saturday's invitational neet at North Central 
College at Naperville, the Illinois Tech team is out to shoot the v/orks against Loyola 
and set a pace to be maintained for the season. 

With no adequate ansv/er to what could be done to stop Loyola's Lenover in dis- 
tance runs. Coach Root is nevertheless counting heavily on the shorter distance events 
and the hurdles and pole vaulting for a heavy point pickup. 

Versatile Ms.yne McCullough, a junior cooperative student, who performs in the 
pole vault, high jump, the mile, the half-mile, and vjho can, if necessary, put the 
shot, is the chief of Coach Root's threats. 

Harry Heidenreich, junior chemical engineer, who is acting Captain, v/ill be en- 
tered in the high jump and pole vault. He has occasionally picked up shot put points. 
The standout competitor in the last event is Al Sanowskis, senior chemicaJ. engineer.

John Elv/ood, pole vaulter and third-year cooperative student, and Robert Osborne, 
fresliman hopeful, who vd.ll be entered in the 60-yd. dash and the auarter-nile, are 
champing at the bit after minor cuccesses in previous meets. A sophomore mechanical 
engineer, Bill li'atson, v/ill also try in the 60-yd. dash. 

Another cmarter-railer, George I.'.atthev.'s, senior electrical engineering student, 
and miler and half-miler George Erkert, a freshman chemical engineer, can be depended 
on for points. 

A possible entry in the ty;o-mile run is Hank Jackov/ski, junior electrical engi- 
neer. 

The boxing picture can be predicted v.lth clearer outlines. Coach VJeissman's 
boys should v/in handily, particularly if Ivo Buddeke, freshjnan chemical engineer vfho 
fights as a light heavy^veight and Kenny Young, junior electrical engineer, fighting 
at 128 pounds, are in good physical condition. Both sustained minor injuries in prac- 
tice during the Ifst i'evi weeks. Buddeke vjent through t?ie novice division of Golden 
Gloves like wildfire but a bad heel kept him out of the open bracket. 

Captain Ernie Colant, senior mechcnical engineering student, has shoi/m himself 
able to take anything anyone weighing 123 poi.inds can pour on him in collegiate cir- 
cles. Art Ellis, flashy fresliman arts and science student, will fight at 118 pounds, 
Jerry DeGiorgi, juriior mechanical engineer at 12o pounds, Roy Erickson, senior cooper- 
ative student, at 135 pounds, Leroy Simpson, third-year cooperative student at 14.7 
pounds. Bob Merrick, freshman chemical engineer, at 160 pounds, and Chester Swann, 
second-year cooperative student, weighting 190 poijinds, as a heavyweight.

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF COOPERATIVE COURSE BEGINS IvIAHCH 31, 1941 

TECHNOLOGY - "VIC. 4600 AT LE^.'IS riYISION 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, 3/l0/41 

An unusual form of scholarships for students v/illing to v/ork their vays through 
school conos to light v/ith an announcement today of Hiss Kathrjm Judkins, 1260 North 
Baarborn Street, coordinator of the "business and industrial management cooperative 
courses at Lev/is division of Illinois Institute of Technology. 

In a statement r/hich outlined plans for matriculation of the second section of 
recontly-installcd cooperative courses at Lewis Monday, i.iarch 31, Miss Judkins re- 
vealed that eighteen students who have spant eight v/ooks since Fc'bruary 3 in studies 
at the Institute v/ill begin a similar hitch in 'busin'-ss and industry March 31, all 
employed at wages that pa^' tuition costs r.nc\ incidental school expenses. 

"Students enrolling tt.rch 31 at Lev/is for the cooperative course will he follov/- 
ing on the heels of those v/o arc sending out to guaranteed jobs at good wages," she 
said. 

"In effect, v;e provide scholarships for any persons v/e accept in the husiness 
and industrial managC'mcnt courses hy finding them johs at which they alternate v;ith 
periods at school through five years-. 

"At the end of five years, the students g-raduato from our courses v;ith a Bache- 
lor of Science degree in "business administration and industrial rar.nagement and a 
training in the husiness \/orld that puts them well on their ways to junior executives 
and other superior positions," she declared. 

"Each school year is divided into six alternating periods of eight weeks each. 
A student spends his first period at school taking fundrjnental studies in science, 
economics, and the humanities as well as courses in salesmanship, purchasing, market- 
ing, advertising, office raa.nagemont and other related fields.

"These studies he will continue as he cor.es back to school at five additional 
intervals throughout each year. Students are paid only for the time they are em- 
ployed but they make enough to carry thenselves through the periods spent in school." 
B. The course completed by the cooperative nethod is the same as "Chat taking four- 

jrears in the regular manner. Kiss Judkins ejqplained. 
m Cooperating business enterprises, struck by the so-Lindness of the plan, are has- 

tening to request '.vorkers from the cooperative program students, she said. 

"Our course is the first of its kind to be offered in the Chicago area and bus- 
inessmen and leaders in several branches of coLimercial life have invcstig;, ted us and 
announced their approvt.l." 

"The succe.;s of tne mechanical engineering cooperative plan begun at /irnour Col- 
lege of the Institute five years ago led to the initiation of a similar program in 
the business field and in :.iany cases the sane cooperating industries that assisted us 
in -ohe 1936 experiment have hastened uo support us in this second pioneering v;ork." 

iunong early supporters of the cooperative business adrainistrc tion and industri- 
al relations courses were banicing houses, packing coiapany officials in production 
fields, and the office managing sections of variegated types of x'ii-ms. 

Paul A. Mertz-, director of company training for Set.rs, Roebuck and Company, 
Vlalter Knoop, secretary- of the Cook County Retail Council, Joseph T. Meek, executive 
secretary of the Illinois Federation of Retail Associations, J. P. Curry, public re- 
lations counselor, and Miss llabel i-leek, executive secretary of Altrusa International 
Association \.'ere of great aid in backing the program from its inception. 

At present employers are deluging her with calls for v;omen students in the coop- 
erative progr::.m and the dem£.nd will likely continue for many m.onths, she indicated. 

"The plans business has made for the national emergency period call for the re- 
placement of men in many large industries by women, fully-trained or partially-trained^, 
but all of them willing to devote themselves to a real career in business.

"Employers understsjid tht..t our etudents are not casual adventuirers in the busi- 
ness v/orld but definitely,' coniiiitted to the policy of working to the top of tlieir re- 
spective companies. That is one rei^son v.hy our wlarch 31 enrollment is expected to 
grei-tly excede that of last February." 

Tuition of $24.0 per year, plus a ^50 yearly budget for incidental fees, books, 
papers, and other school equipment, are easily met by the amount of money earned by 
individual students during their working h:.lf-year, Miss Juoicins asserted. Only high 
school graduates and those v/ith qualities of leadership and scholastic aptitude are 
admitted to the cooperative courses, 

"Our problem nov; is to allov; each firm only one team of our students, the stu- 
dent at work i.nd the student at school who replaces him at vork, because of uhe in- 
creasing demand for cooperatively-enrolled men taid women." 

Of those enrolled at present, Miss Judkins revealed, many students are past 
twenty years of age and the group rtTiges from eighteen to twenty-five. The follow- 
ing are currently enrolled in the cooperative co'orse:

Four handrec i^thletes, ht-iling from the North "oocls of '• itxonsin aad 
Minnesota,, from the State of ulichigan, fro.ii Kani^as and from Illinois and Indiana, /Ith 
still one 'veeK remaining, have already signified their intention of competing in the 
thirteenth running of Chicago's track and field classic, the ILLlIJOlS TLCH KLL^iY 
GiuilES • 

Formerly knoim as the Ar;r.our Tech Relays, and renamed after the merger of 
Armour Institute of Technology'' and Lewis Institute last summer, the 194-1 finale to 
the current indcor season, viii be held Saturday afternoon and evening in the 
University of Chicago field house, jlarch 15th, 19/+1. The preliminary events are 
scheduled for the afternoon, v. ith the final events beginning at 7 o'clock in the 
evening. 

Characteristically kno-.Ti as the only middle-p.-eitern meet in rhich colleges 
and universities can compete in separate sections without the killing competition of 
an open meet, the Illinois Tech Relajr Games afford the small college with top-flight 
talent competition with the higgler school. 

According to John Schoramer, all te;--m entries are classified into tv.o separate 
and distinct divisions according to tiie rating of the school and the competition in 
which it curtomarily engages. The smaller schools are placed in the college division, 
while such schools as North'-^estern, Kani-ji^c, and Illinois are placed in the University 
division. No university contestant may compete in the college division, "'hile a 
college division athlete, having exception':^! ability, m.ay compete with the better 
talent in tlie university division. At the same time, several events, inciuding the 
field events, the mile run and the half mile run are declared open events, in vmich 
all entries, irrespective of classification, may compete.

The Gajnes are "onder the direction of John Schoiiiiaer, famous athletic official 
and Tech athletic director. Asiiisting him are B. "Sonny" V.'eissman, assistant athletic 
director and boxing and r;Testling coach; George S. Allison, treasurer; Norman Root, 
track coach; T. Nelson Jletcalf, University of Chicago athletic director; and 
Alexander Schreiber, public relations director for the Institute. 
■ Thus far, thirty colleges and universities have entered the best of their 
athletic .naterial for corapetiticn in the preliminary events Saturday afternoon. V'ith 
one v;eek remaining before the stcrter's gun sigrials the beginning of the first event, 
the total na^ber of athletes ii, AOO, and indications are that another hundred athletes 
from at IttiSt 10 additional colleges and universities may be expected. 

Aiaong the more fa:.ious entries are full tearas from such ''idely-rmo' n schoola 
as Drake of Des Moines, entering for the first time in many years. There are also 
teams from tlie University of Illinois, I/iicnigan State, Chicago, Marquette end North- 
western, all competing in the laniver^•ity division. 

In the college division, rL.turning to the scene of repeated tetun championships, 
are such popular combinations as those of Michigan Normal, last year's winners; 
North Central, recognized as the most outstanding small college entry from this area; 
Northern Illinois State Teachers of De Kalb o s veil as V.'estern Illinois State 
Teachers of Macomb; V'estern State Teachers of michig:.n; Carleton College of North- 
field, Minnesota; Mil'-'aukee Teachers; Coe College; lo-.va, Dubuque and Io"-a Teachers of 
lo'va; and Monmouth and Knox College, both reentering the Games after. several years 
absence. 

And from these colleges and universities come athletes many of v.hom are 
defending champions in the scheduled track and field events. North'-estern University', 
Joe Finch, daring hurdler 'Tho has been making a n^mie for himself in the Big Ten 
conference this year, '.■ill be defending his 73-yard high hurdle record ag^^dnst several 
Marquette timber-toppers. Another of Marquette's runners, '/.'alter Shslton, dashman,

returning to regdn hi:; hold on this 70-yard event. Shelton is co-holder of the 
record in thi£ event '-ith Littler, t--o foriaer University of Illinois athletes and one 
from Cc^rleton College of Minnesota. 

Another returning defending chanpion is Ter- illiger of De Kalb Teachers rho 
von tne ..uarter mile in the college field -/ith a ti;ae of 51.5 seconds, ''.-hile Jenlvins 
of lo-'a Teachers '.vill defend his cro' n in the one-iuile run. 

In the tean charipionship coupetition, both of last 3'ear's ',':inners are returning 
I'.Tiile there is no actual artrd in the university division for total teair. points 
gained, the highest scoring team is alvays recognized c.e the v.inner in this division. 
Marquette University of r.lilv,aukee rated this honor iu 194.0 by virtue of an especially 
well-balunced teai;i in all events as '.veil as fast-running co;ribinations in the relty 
eventc. Murouette placed first in the t'-o mile event, nosing out Illinois by a 
scant ;:iargin and then trailed the latter in both the sprint medley and the one-mile 
events for second places, to pile up the largest university division point total. 

In the college division, little-kno'.n but highly respected by its opponents 
in tr^ck and field, ..lichigan Normal of Yp^ilanti ran up a totc-l point score of 65 
and 5/6 points to beat its nearest riva.l, highly-touted Kansas State Teachers of 
Pittsburg, by 25 points. By experience, it is i,.ipossible to rate the Normal contin- 
gent. In the 194-0 competition the Hurons were not expected to do better than a third 
place becccuse of a completely reva-.iped teaiS and they came in first. Similarly this 
year, 'ith practically a nc" combination, it is h-rd to deter-^ine vhat its status may 
be. Chief among the contenders for the college division crovn 'vlll be Loyola of 
Chicago, vdnners of the Mid-e.:.t Intercollegiate at Naperville a "/eek ago; North "cen- 
tral of Naperville, Iowa Teachers, and La";rence College of Appleton, V.'isconsin

'ROM; ALEXaInIDER SCHREIBEF RE: ILLINOIS TECH RELAY GAIvlES (FORMERLY 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE Of AEIvIOTJIi. TECH RELAYS) U OF C flELDHOUSE 

TECHNOLOGY - VIC. 46OO SArjRDAY - 3/15/^1 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, 3/lO/a 

The best athletes of the vest's "Bix Six" Conference, the niddlev.'est' s "Big Ten" 
ind"Central Intercollegiate" Conferences, and the Midv/est meet, including stars from 
the "Little Nineteen", according to infor.T.ation released late last night by John J. 
chommer, athletic director, have s\/elled the entries of the thirteen tti annual renewal 
of the Illinois Tech Relay Gaines (formerly Armour Tech Relays) to a total of 35 teams 
and 450 athletes. 

Ripe from competition in their respective Conferences over last week-end and 
flushed with handsome victories, many of the schools will renew rivalrj'- this Saturday 
night, March 15th, 194.1, in the U of C Fieldhonse as the Tech Games get under way. 

The final events in tnis meet, considered as Chicago's crowning climax of the 
annual indoor track season, are scheduled to begin at 7 o'clock in the evening. The 
preliminary events are scheduled for the afternoon, beginning at 2:15 o'clock. 

What is more important from the competitive stcindpoint, according to leading 
track and field experts in this area, is the fact that the Tech games will afford an 
opportunity for the best teams of the Conferences mentioned - the Big Ten, the Big Six, 
the Central Intercollegiate and the Midwest - to get together to match prowess for in- 
door collegiate championship of the middlev/est. This is the only meet of the indoor 
season ?/herein athletes from schools so widely separated geographically and who ov;e al- 
legiance to such a variety of conferences, have &xi opportunity to match their talents. 

For the first time in a great number of years, Drake University of Des Moines, 
Iowa is sending a full complement of track and field stars to compete in the universi- 
ty division. They will be m.atched against such powei^ful com.binations as those of Illi- 
nois, Chicago, Northwestern, Michigan State, and Marquette, the 194-0 Tech Relays' Vifin- 
ner.

In the college division, Lo/olu. of Chicago, winners of the Midvrest meet in Naper- 

tille two weeks ago, v.lll compete against highlj'^-respected Michigan Normal of Ypsilan- 
i, college division \vi:mer of last year. A nearby Chicago hopef\il vvill be famous 
-lorth Central College, while vVisconsin's Lav/rence College as well as Minnesota's Carle- 
ton College of liorthfield -./ill be hopeful contenders. 

Among the individual contestants, ciirrently resting upon their laurels by virtue 
of charupionship performances in the twelfth running of the Games, are six prominent 
track and field stars v;ho are scheduled to defend their Crovms. Perhaps the most promi- 
nent of these is little, red-headed "Gene" Littler of Nebraska. He has earned the 
title of "fire-ball" as a result of his speedy taxtics in the dash events all during 
the last outdoor season and during the cvtrrent indoor season. Rated as one of the 
best dash-men in the United States, Gene carried av/ay top honors in the 70 yd. event 
in 194-0, and in so doing, tied the relay record-tine of 7.1 seconds for this event. 

The second defending chaiapion is Northwestern' s Joe Finch. A consistent place 
winner in the hurdle events in Big Ten Conference meets, Joe Finch repeated his 1939 
performance in v/inning the 194-0 meet. Tlrils year, however, he is expecting stiff com- 
petition from Illinois' Den Olsen tnd Marquette's George Foster, both expert timber 
toppers. 

In the quarter-mile event, noted for its killing pace, Nebraska's Gene Littler 
is again the defending champion. In this event he is not a record holder although he 
traveled the coux-se in 194-0 in the time of 51 seconds flat. 

Vi'ith Joe Finch as defending champion of the high hurdle event. Northwestern Uni- 
versity has a corner upon "reputation-saving" since tv/o other V/ildcats v/ill also be de- 
fending records and marks established in 1939 and 1940. 

The first of these is young Edward Thistlethv/aite erratic pole vaulter v/ho cur- 
rently holds the Tech Games' record for this event. Thistlethwaite established this 
mark in 1939 with a vault of 13 feet, 11 ejid 1/8 inches, although he could do no bet- 
ter thcin tie for third place last j'-ear. According to N orthv/e stern ' s mentor, Frank

ill, Thistlethwaite is rapidly improving in form although he hr.s not done better than 
3 feet, 9 inches this season. 

The remaining Northv/estem defending champion is dusky Jim Smithy high jumper who 
on in 194-0 v/ith a leap of 6 feet, 1 inch. Knovm to top the bar at 6 feet, 4- inches, 
3ut in a particularly bad slump this season from \Yhich he has not as yet been able to 
emerge, Smith is having stiff competition from his tet-mmate and namesake, Don Smith, 
iach is rated in the 6 foot, 1 inch class, and Oi^ch is rapidly improving to the point 
where serious competition may result in spectacular jw.ips next Saturdaj)- night. 

In the running of the team relay events, both college cind university divisions, 
probable \/innerE are hard to forecast. Defending records established last year will be 
Marquette University and Michigan Normal, each v/ith relatively inexperienced combina- 
tions and neither having more than one returning vctero.n of last season's v/inning tetjiis. 
Each will be defending records established for the two mile rela.y event, while Michi- 
gan Normal will have the additional task of defending its \dnning time of 3 minutes, 
28.5 seconds in the college one mile relay. 

On the other hand, the University of Illinois will have its toughest assignments 
in attempting to defend v/inning times in both the sprint medley and one mile events. 

Officials whose duty it is to keep the records and conduct the meet are: Dr. W, 
J. Monilav/, referee and Starter; Ge rge Donoghue, Chicago Park District, head finish 
judgej J. J. Lipp, famous timer of many v/orld renovmed sporting events, head timer; 
James Lightbody, famous years ago as a University of Chicago athlete, head inspector; 
Dr. IV. H. Droegemueller, head judge of the pole vault; Dr. J. F. McNamara of the Insti- 
tute, physician in charge; J. Kyle Anderson, University of Chicago, clerk of course; 
Harry Frieda, clerk of course; and chief marshall, B. V/eissman, Tech assistant athlet- 
ic director, chief marshall*

glory in the Tech Relays on the fast clay track at the I'/iidway and in the climactic com- 
petition coming out of this seasonal •.■indue of the indoor meets. 

Illinois, Northv/estern, V/iscunsin, and Chicago, trhose combined total of 163.5 
points is seven-tenths of all points scored at Lafayette, will be represented in even 
fuller galuxy than they "ere in the Big Ten meet. 

A ne"/ name flaring bright on the tracx hori.'on is Don Olsen of Illinois, who won 
the 70-yard lov hurdles and then came back to take second in the highs. 

He broke the American mark of tv.-enty yetrs standing in the first event and pushed 
an Ohio state competitor to a ne^- American record in the highs. His lov/-hurdle record 
vdll like".-ise stand for the Big Ten as tho.t event never had been held under its "dng 
before. 

Another entrant in the Tech Relays v/ill be Charlie Horvath of North'.ve stern, who 
should be at his hurdling peak Saturday night. He took third in the 7G-yard high and 
low hurdles and gave evidence of being one of the most improved timbertoppers of the 
season.

His tearaK£.te, Joe Finch, v.ho v/cn laSt year's highs, will be very much in evi- 
dence, according to those "^o have been '//etching him all year. His fourth in that 
svent at Lafajette may spur him to sensational efforts. 

Myron Piker of the V.'ildcats ".as nosed out by Franck of Minnesota in the Big-Ten 
SO-yard dach finals. If he is in good physical condition for the Tech Relays, he might 
lang up a record for the 70-yard dash as he is kno n to be a strong finisher. 

Bailey of Illinois in the ^uarter-::lile, Randall of Chicago in the half-mile, 
l^-choenike of V/'isconsin in the mile and the Illini mile-relay team, on the basis of 
point-garnerings Saturday night, 'vill be predictable factors in the Tech Games. 

In the shot put Paskvan of Visconsin, '"inning i:aturday vith two inches less than 
le made at last year's Tech Gicnes, 'ill be trying in v.-hat '■/ill be probably the last 
of the indoor meets of his spectacular college athletic career. Anything can happen 
under such stimulus, and probably v.lll. 

University of Chicago's Rendleman, taking a fifth in the same event, has been 
picking up experience all year and may be set for his big act next Saturday. Le'vis 
of Illinois, McFadcean of V/isconsin, Stout of Illinois and Foster of T'isconsin, 
placing second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in the Big Ten high jump, '-vill 
be on hand to fight it out once more. 

Vj'illiams of i'isconsin, '"inner of last weekend's pole vault, and Thistlethv/aite 
of Northivestern taking fourth, .-.ill have plenty of pushing from collegiate entries, 
as their event is an open one. 

At the Central Collegiate meet at Notre Dame last Saturday Michigan Normal, 
Mar'^uette, Drake, Kansas State and Michigan State scored a third of all points against 
redoubtable foes such as Notre Daine and Pittsburgh. 

Wyman, Drake, and Vielch, Marquette, in the high jump, Quinn and Brzensinski, 
Michigan Normal, and 7/ickersham, Marquette, in the mile run, Rosens'-eig, Michigan 
Normal in the shot put, Vosberg, Marquette, Kaulitz, Michigan State, in the quarter,

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF BaRTLETT POOL, U. OF C, 3/li^ - At30 P.M. 

TECHNOLOGY - VIC. 4-600 DE PAUVJ AT TECH - 3/l5 - 7:30 P.M. 

RELEASE: FOR FRIDAY, 3/U/A1 
The Illinois Tech ^irtiinming Team v;ill \;ind up its present season this coniing v;eek 
id wiLh dual meets on Friday, March 14.th, against Beloit, and Saturday against DePauw 
liversity of Greencastle, Indiajia. 

Both contests v/ill be staged in Bartlett Pool on the University of Chicago caiTi- 
iis; Friday's encounter is scheduled for ^^30 P.I.i. while the DePauw tilt is to be run 
ff at 7:30 in the evening, when the Illinois Tech Relays vdll be in full swing. 

As yet, the Techav/ks have not beaten eithei' te^-ir. in previous meetings this year 
ut are confident of a victory over Beloit. 

About the middle of January the Techav/k squad of SIX men traveled to Beloit. 
The remainder of the team was ill) . The outcome v/as disastrous. However, the Engi— 
leers managed to win both of the relays which accounted for t\/o-thirds of their total 
icore. Adding insult to injury, Beloit' s ace freestyler, Morton, proceeded to shatter 
iwo pool records in the -40 and the 100 yd. freestyle events. 

In the pending Beloit meet, the freestyle events have been all but conceded to 
Beloit. Extremely close decisions are expected in both the back and breast stroke 
events between Beloit' s Michael and Tech's leading scorer, Earle Huxhold. Karl Koos, 
ill for more than half of the season, should be in top form to touch out Oldendorf of 
Beloit in the 100 yd. breast stroke. 

Much of Tech' s success in the past season has been due to a fine diving pair con- 
sisting of John Trejay and Ifiilliara Condon. They have alternated in placing one-tvro 
in almost every meet in which they have participated. And if any one factor is respon- 
sible for the Engineers being on the profit side of the ledger, it is because of re- 
markably consistent relay teams.

Beset by injuries suffered over & -.veek-end of stiff ccmoetition, tv;o cf the more 
prominent tei^ius entered in the tairteenth c-nnut-l Illinois Tech Relay Gijnes, v.lll be 
sorely ht.ndicapped in their battle for university division championships. 

Tjhen the Games get under -ay Saturday afternoon, iwurch 15th., 194-1, at 3:30 
o'clocK, Northv.-estem University of Evaiiston and Marauette of ;<lilwaukee vill be minu- 
the services of their aiore brilliant performers. North'- estern University has lost 
Myron Piker for at least tv.c weeks, "hile Marouette '..ill be minus the services of Art 
Sch'.TOpe as veil as V'altcr Shelton, dash man. 

ulyron Piker, kno-n as the undefeated dash cha-ripion of the Big Ten for tv/o years 
met his first defeat Saturday night at Lafuyette at the hcnds of Franck of Minnesota. 
According to 'i'ildcat Coi ch Frank Hill, Uyrcn .ill be out of competition for ct least 
t'A'o '"eeks recovering from this injury vhich caufjed his defeat. This r-ill be the second 
time that Piker has been unable to compete in the Tech Gfjnes because of a similar 
injury. 

Vialter Shelton, co-record-holder of the 70-yard ash event v.'on his laurels in the 
1933 meet, but v;ill not compete in the 19/+1 Games. The loss is keenly felt by the 
Marquette Coach in vie-/ of the fact thc.t Shelton has been one of the most consistent 
point-scorers for the •.iilnt.ukee contingent. According to Buster Shimek, Marquette 
mentor, Shelton i''ithdre'.v from track competition bscause of outside '"ork. 

The other Marquette casm Ity i.'-: Art Sch;;ope, hurdler and high-point-man of the 
squad. He ivi.s injured at the Notre Dame dual meet a w-eek ago and is not expected to 
recover in time to enter Saturday night's competition. 

Accordingly, it appears evident that the field is left entirely clear for the 
19/i.O defending champion ^"ho travels a good 1000 miles from Nebraska to make the meet. 
He is little, red headed "Gene" Littler, spectacular dark-horse of the 194-0 Games of

Stiff t-Et competition for the red hei^d ill prob£.bly co:ne fron t.n unkno" n Ho'."ard 
illen of Marquette ho taKes VJalter Shelton's place. He trailed Carter of Pitt to a 
econd in the CIC in the 63 yard event, whether he has enough stcj-.iina to travel the 
yt^rd event at top speed './ill reaain to be seen although Marquette's Coach indi- 
ates that the youngster has aefinite posLibilities. 

In v.inning the 19^0 7Q-yard dar;h, Littler demonstrated not only his remarkable 
peed, but also the remarkable stamina that carries him to exceptionally good times in 
.he 4-4.0-yard event. Most meets have 60-yard dash events. In lasting out the extra 
,0 yards of the Tech 73-yarQ event, Littltr ccnclu^iveli'- demonstrated hie exceptional 
.alents by tieing the existing relay r.-.cord of 7.1 seconds for this event. In so 
Icing he defeated famed Walter Shelton of ivlar'.uette, also a co-record-holder for this 
ivent and Chicago's highly-touted John Davenport, 

The record for the 70-yard dash 'vas fircit established in 1933 by a small-college 
mtront, Johnson of Illinois Normal. The record v.as tied for the first time in 1934 
3y Herman of Ci^rleton, Northfield, Liinnesota, and again tied in 1936 and 1939 by 
Iriove of Illinoi;-: and Shelton of Mar.mette respectively. Littler tied the record 
E'er the fifth time in 19-^0. 

The red-headed youngster from Kebrasxa comes to his fame by dint of pure hard 
vork. He is not only rated as the country's number-one dashraan, but is also considered 
3ne of the best quarter-railers coning out of the west. His best time for the 440 is 
^7.3 seconds - 1.1 seconds faster than the existing record time for this event estab- 
lished in 1939 by North Central's (Naptrville) Wagner. 

Littler won the 440 of the Tech Games in 194.0, but he ivas not pushed to a record 
time in this event because competition '-as not stiff enough to v;arrant a better time 
than 51 seconds flat. By virtue of this victory, ho is the only athlete in the univer- 
sity division defending ti-''o titles.

Besiaes being the Big Six indoor dc.sh chonpion for t"o set-sens, f.nd the Big Six 
lutdoor chcjnpion for one season in the dt-sh events, Littler i.lso holds the quc^rter- 
iile records for the Sug:-r Bowl i-nd the Cotton Carnival. 

Competition in the IMo, ho-ever, is not going to be so easy this jeixv for the 
estc-rner. Place-rinners of the Big Ten meet at Lafayette and the Central Intercoll- 
;giate, each ;;ith times of 51 seconds or better, will be pushing him for honors. 

The first of these ic veteran i.lil aukean, Don Vosberg ■-ho trailed Roy of Nctre 
)a:ric to a second in the CIC last -veek-end. Vosberg ii' noted for his stamina and 
ioes the quarter in 51 seconds easily. Another CIC place vinner v/ho vill be in the 
■unning, battling Vosberg more than littlt.r, '.vill be Dale KaulitJ- of Michigan State. 
le is also rated in the hUO at an easy 51 seconds. Others are Don Bailey of Illinois 
nd Jerry Schneider of Northvestern University. 

V.liile the dash and quarter-mile events in the university division seem to be all 
"Gene" Littley, the college division events are more problematical, vith tv;o former 
lef ending chamoions as possible '.vinners. 

Le"'ds Taylor and Evans V'alker, both Chicago negro lads 'vho have made names for 
themselves in Tech Games in former years are expected to return for the 194-1 Games. 
Each has ivon the college division 70-yard dash college division cro^m. V'ialker, 
formerly of V'right and nor of Loyola, -on this event in 1939 vith a time of 7.2 sec- 
onds, 1 second less than the existing record time. Taylor of 7^ilson von the event in 
19^0 with the same time - 7.2 seconds. 

V'/ith these tco dusky lads pitted against each other, it is highly probable that 
even a sixth co-record-holder for the 73-yard dash cro'n vill be created. Barring the 
possibility, of course, that "Red" Littler gets pushed to an entirely new record in tha

ILLINOIS EJSTITUTE Of TECH RELAY GAI/iLS, SATURDAY, 3/15 Al 

TECHI!OLOGY - VIC. ^600 3:30 - 10:00 P.M. 

RELEASE: FOR THURSDAY, IJARCH 13, 1941 
Converging on Chicago I'rom all parts of eight midwestem states, trailing records 
ke banners in their wakes, are small amies of that special breed of track chairipion- 
lip crov/d-pleasers, the field events performers. 

They are all hell-bent for glory and heading for the same encariprjent, the Univer- 
ty of Chicago's Fieldhouse, hcadquaiters for 525 athletes Saturday afternoon and eye- 
ing vjhen the 13th arjiual Illinois Tech Relay Ganes v/ill be held. 

Eig-muscled boys v/ho have been watching each otlier through a frenzied indoor 
eason of shot-put records in danger, lithe-linbed pole vaulters who have been seeking 
he stratosphere from meet to meet, high iui.ipers as skittish as dancing girls — all 
f them will be together in one fieldhouse at last. 

All field events, as wrll as the SBO-vard r^Jin and the mile, v;ill be open to en- 
trants from great universities and colleges and j-onior colleges from the comfed com- 
lunitics. 

This arrangement is made in order tlict competitors from small schools can tell 
low they stack up with university stars they only read about but never see, except in 
the Illinois Tech Relay Gaj.es. Points for colleges will be counted independently of 
the general result. 

i 

" All field events \.-ill take place during the evening session of the Games, the 
afternoon being given over to prelindnaries of the dashes, hurdle events, and the col- 
lege two-mile relay, which is a final event. 

The pole-VcLult field at first gltnce looks as if it will be among the tv/o most 
interesting event competitions of the entire Games, the hurdles being the other. 

V/illieims of V/isconsin, who did 13 feet, lO-g inches, to V;in last Saturday's Big 
Ten meet, will be out to gain an undisputed first in this same event he shared vdth 
Hunt of Nebraska in the 194-0 Tech classic. His mark last year was 13 feet, 9 inches.

The record for all-time Tech Games tries is 13 feet, 11 and one-eighth inches, 
done by Ed Thistlethwaite, Northwestern, in 1939. The Wildcat ,Ace, placing third last 
jrear, will be back to boost his ante in the direction of his record achievement. This- 
tlethwaite has been doing in the neighborhood of 13 feet of late but has been .known to 
be brilliant when least expected. 

Stein of Michigan Normal, last year's college division champions, v/ho does over 
13 feet easily, won a third place at Notre Dame last Saturday. He v/ill probably be 
head man in the colllege points group again and may be second to r.'illia,ms in the gen- 
eral scoring. 

V/onch of Michigan State, v;ho does in the vicinity of 12 feet, 8 inches, Gelhar 
of Marquette, who does the same, and Vthite of North Central, who has hit 12 feet, 9 
inches, will be very much in the running to show in this event. 

Husky George Paskvan, a perrenial favorite of audiences, who won this year's Big 
Ten shot put, did 4-9 feet, S inches for a second place in last year's Tech Gsjues. 
Hackney of Kansas State, who beat him, vdll not return this j'-ear. 

Ed Rosens'weig of last year's Michigan NormaJ. college division ch;jr.pions, will be 
back this year, trying for something better thaj:i the third pltice he copped at Notre 
Dame Saturday when the Central Collegiate meet was run off. Hugh Rendlemian, of the 
University of Chicago, taking fifth in the recent Big Ten meet, can expect to excel 

the 4.6 feet, 3^ inches he did at Purdue.

lege, Appleton, Wisconsin, Behan of Northern Illinois State Teachers, Vaughn of Iowa 
State Teachers and Kavialik, a teammate of Behan' s. Feiv;eger, of Lav/rence College, a 
versatile performer, may be in the money. 

The Smiths, mighty m.en are they, both of Northwestern, are expected to dominate 
the high jumping at University of Chicago Fieldhouse. James Smith, defending champion 
in this event, has done 6 feet, 4. inches but seem.s to Icnock the bar off at anything 
over 6 feet, 1 inch these days. Don Smith, v«ho ci.\n always be counted on to mtdce

FROMs ALEXj'JMDER SCHREIBER RE; ILLINOIS TECH RELAY GiJviES 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF x^CRIviERLY kEIvIOUR TECH RELAYS 

TECHNOLOGY- VIC. i^oOO U. OF C. FIELD HOUSE 3/l5Al 

RELEASE: FOR FRIDAY, 3/UAl 

Perhaps most spectacular of events staged in any track and field meet are the 
mile run and the 380-yard run. For here the contestant must have a thorough knovirledge 
of the science, conserve his energy, run a precisely-paced race uiitil the final stretch 
to come home the winner. 

And in the thirteenth annual renev/al of Chicago's classic Illinois Tech Relay 
Games, formerly knovm as the Armoux Tech Relays, plenty of competition will be in evi- 
dence in these tv/o events. The Games will be held this Saturday afternoon and evening, 
March 15th,, 194-1= Preliminary events, not including the 880 toid mile runs, Virill begin 
at 3;30 o'clock in the afternoon with final events beginning at 7 o'clock in the evenir. 

And at the same time, paired v;ith talent in the open events of championship cali- 
ber, vjill be several college and i.miversity entrants in the hurdle events. These in 
combination hold the greatest promise of record-breaking performances. 

Chief among contenders for the crovm in the SSO-yard run as v;ell as in the one- 
mile run is the University of Illinois entrant. Park Brovm. He is a senior of Glencoe, 
Illinois, and one of the best distance men the Illini have been able to send to the 

Games for some time. Brov.Ta ran an especially good race in the 880 against veteran 
Campbell 
/Kane of Indiana last Saturday to take second place at the Big Ten meet. Kane's time 

of 1:54-. 8 was 7-tenths of a second faster thcin the existing record time for this event 

established at 1:55.5 by Marquette's Beckett in the 1936 Tech Games. 

Jerome 
Brovm will be after the cro\ini won last ye^^r by/Bfaier of Wisconsin and will have 

competition from Ray Randall of the University of ChiCc.go, fifth-place vifinner of this 

event in the Big Ten meet at Lafayette, and Lorence Stout of the University of Illinois 

In the one mile run, the picture is somewhat changed, with the Badger State 

making the strongest bid for first place honors. The University of Wisconsin, v;ith 

Hov/ard 
/Schoenike entered as the leading mile contender, will bb battling for thu first of

many places they are expfjcted to tako towards vanning the university division champion- 
ships. Park Brovm of Illinois and Ray Itandall of Chicago, favored as runners-up, Y;ill 
be battling with Marqutrute University's Dick V/ickersham for places. 

The greatest upset of Big Ten hopes, however, nay come in this, the most gruellii 
of all track events scheduled. While it seems highly improbable that any of the con- 
testants from the University of Y/isconsin, Illincis or Cnicago could posbibly set a 
pace that would break "Chuck" Fenske's 4.:08.9 record time established in 1938, a small- 
college entry from Michigan Stt.te Normal may carry away first place honors should he 
compete. The Huron's name is Quinn, and, tlthough Iv'ichigan Normal has entered a full 

team to defend its college division championship won last year, definite information a£ 

Thomtis 
to/Quinn's entiy in thti one-mile rm. hc.s not as yet been recoivod. His time of 4- niin- 

utes, 16.5 seconds for the mile run, v/inning tiiae for this event in the Central Inter- 

collegii-.to m.eet held at Notre Dame last Saturday, seems to be better than aiiything 

entries from the Big Ten have to offer in the v;ay of competition. 

In the hurdle events, the most promising of the entrants come from Northwestern 

University. In these events, the 70-yard lo\/ and high hurdles, the V/ildcats boast eui 

American College Indoor low-hurdle record-brei ker in the person of Charles Horvath. 

And in the person of Joe Finch, the 1/Vildcats hi.ve a two-timo high hurdle defending 

champion. In thi^se events the fieldhouse as v;ell ts the Tech Gam.es records are held 

by former stcirs from Purdue, Kcinsas State and fJajme University, with a time of 7.6 

Edv;ard 
seconds in the case of the lov/ hurdles, and 8.6 seconds by/Smith of (jisconsin in the 

highs. 

The hurdles crovms, however, are not going to be awarded with only a small flurry 
of "hop, skip, and jump". For in the high hurdles, Horvath will have plenty of compe- 
tition from his teammate Joe Finch, from George Foster of Marquette, tJid Arthur Egbert 

of Mcirquette. Finch, it will be recalled, placed behind the highly- touted Horvath at 

Bob 
the Big Ten meet in this event, one in which/lfJright of Ohio State set a new American 

indoor record. According to consistent results, however, the high hurdles are a 



: : .1 -■::■:■ .ct 



- 3 - 

Chuck 
favorite of defending cht^mpion Joe Finch and it is u kncvm fact that/Horv£..th generally 

trails the forraer in this event. 

With competition such as this to reckon v/ith, and vvith Foster and Egbert of 
Marquottc-, the latter a place winner in the CIC and the former a place v;inner in the 
194-0 Games, it is highly prob^.ble that on^ or the other of the North"ivestej n lads may 
be pushed to a nev; record in the 70-yard high hurdles. 

In the Iovj hurdles, on the otlier hand, Charles Horv„th seems to have a clear 
field v;ith the vdthdrav/al of Don Olsen of Illinois from the GtmeE. Olsen, originally 
scheduled to run both hurdle events in the Tech Gaines , has been withdrai/vn by Coach 
L. G. Johnson of the Illini'. 

Charles Horva.th comes to the Games in the "best condition of his hui'dling career' 
according to Wildcat Coach Frank Hill. In c ualifying for the Iovj hurdles event at 
Lafayette last Saturday, it will be rememibered that Horvath breezed the distance in 
8 seconds flat to establish a new iuncrican indoor record for this event, even though 
Olsen in the finals upset this new-set record in order to place first. 

In the college division, competition v/ill be equally keen, with times closely 
approximating those of the university division. Entered are such consistent lov; 
hurdlers as Robert Keyes of lov/a Teachers, viho ran second in the recently-held Midwest 
meet at Napervillc. Also entered are Everrette Stoutner of Coe and North Central's 
Pa.ul Stark. 

In the high hurdle event a quartet of entries from the middle west will be 
renewing their efforts towards the college crown. Jaiiiec Fiev;eger of Lawrence College 
is the most probable winner by virtue of his best tim^e in the Midwest 60-yard event. 
Should he be able to continue his fast pace for the extrs. 10 yards, he should v;in 
"pulled-up" ov^r his te-ximate James Ormg, Don Sommerficld of Michigan Normal, v/ho 
placed 4.th in the CIC meet, and Robert Keyes of Iowa Teachers.

In the college division hurdle events, it is still probleraatical as to whether 
the defending chcLmpion v/ill retiorn to defend hie crovm. He is Chi^rles Hlt.d of Michigcir 
Normal, v/ho ¥;on both events "iDulled-up" during the 194-0 meet, cjid vmo has been beating 
even the best of competitors throughout the State of Michigii.n since this tine last 
year. His most recent accomplishment is a 7.6 time for the high hurdles, 60-yard 
distance, in the Central Intercollegiate meet held at Notre Dame last Y/eek-end. 
Should he enter the Tech meet, just as much of a scramble for places v/ill be created 
as vjith the deltiyed entry of Quinn in the one-mile rim. 

As the entries for the Games closed last night, a field of 550 athletes coming 
from 4-0 colleges ijid universities vjas assijred for the Saturday classic, according to 
John J. Schomner, chairman of the committee in charge of the Games.

FROIihALEXMDER SCHPJ^LIBE?, RE: IvTUSICAL CLUB CONCERT - GOODHM THEATER 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF FRIDAY, S/UAl - 8:30 P.M. 

TECHNOLOGY - VIC. ^^600 

FOR IivE/EDIATE RELEASE 

The first annual concei-t of the combined musical clubs of Illinois Institute of 
Technology v;ill be presented at the Goodman Theater Friday, March l^th, at 8? 30 P.?.!, 

That the clubs v;ill play to a capacity crov/d is affirmed by the fact that ad- 
vance ticket sales have been ovei'vmelmingly greater than anticipated and it is expec- 
ted that every available seat v/ill be occupied, '"hen the curtain goes up. 

Prior to the merger of Armour Institute of Technology and Lev/is Institute, Armour 
Institute of Technology musical clubs presented a similar annual concert. 

As it has been for the past five years, the concert \7ill be under the able di- 
rection of 0. Gordon Erickson^ composer a.nd coach of the Illinois Tech Men's Glee 
Club and Orchestra. This year he will complement his organization v;ith the Lewis 
Girls' Glee Club. 

The concert will be distinctive for unusual visual charm as veil as for that of 
a musical nature. For a munber of years one of Lir. Erickson's chief studies and hob- 
bies has been the use of light and color to interpret and enhance the beauty of music. 
That certain colors or combinations of colors are synonjinous v.dth certain pieces of 
music is a recognized fact. Light, scintillating dances; beautiful, soulful spiritu- 
als; stately marches and even the "purest" of music; all create colorful pictures, 
hov'Sver vague or unreal, in the m.ind of the listener. 

Despite the fact that musicians as far back as Beethoven recognized the impor- 
tant connection betv'een music and color, no outstanding experimentation has been done 
along this line. Fait Disney's "Fantasia" is an exception to this statement inasmuch 
as the listener, and watcher, receives a definite and breath-taking picture through 
the combined medium of music, color and animation. 

Mr. Erickaon has made an intensive study of music and color and, an electrician 
of no mean caliber, he is v;ell able to execute his ideas. Friday night the extensive

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF AT UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO FIELDHOUSE, 

TECHNOLOGY- VIC. /+600 SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 19A1; 3:30-10 P.M. 

FOR RELEASE; SATURDAY, MiiRCH 15, 1941 

A parade of big names from the Big Ten, Big Six, Central Intercollegiate Confer- 
ence, Little Nineteen and of ambitious favorites from smaller universities and college! 
scattered over nine nidwestern states vd.ll be off vdth the starter's gun Saturday 
(tofflorrov/) afternoon and evening when the Illinois Tech Relay Games take over Univer- 
sity of Chicago fieldhouse. 

Late entries have brought the total of contestants to 550 athletes from 4-0 in- 
stitutions in Illinois, V^isconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, lov/a. South Dakota, Missouri, 
Kansas and Nebraska. Two types of competition, university and college, will take 
place in all events except the half-mile and mile runs and the field events, which 
will be open. 

The Games, 13th annual classic of the south-side school and known until this 
year as the Armour Tech Relays, will be the climax of the midwestern indoor season and 
a number of records should be broken on the basis of performances of individual com- 
petitors during the current season. 

Typical of the color-element that attaches to each running of the Games is a 
late team entry, that of Vifestern Illinois State Teachers College, Macomb, headed by 
no less that Alphonse "Flip" Anders, Negro athlete, who as a Moline, Illinois high 
school boy ran the 100-yard dash in 9.8 axid entered the University of Illinois in 1939 
hailed as a second Jessie Owens. 

Nov; a sophomore at the Normal school, having withdravm from the University of 
Illinois after a football and track career filled vdth broken-records and vicissitudes, 
Anders will be making his first indoor appeartjice since leaving the Illini and has 
announced he is on his v;ay to a comeback. He will be entered in the college division 
70-yai'd dash and 440-yard run.

^Defending champion in the 70-yard dash, college division, vjill be Levfis Taylor, 
Negro, of Wilson Junior College, rated one of the best dash men at this distance in th. 
country. He has done it in 7.2. 

In the university division, with Marquette University, last year's Games univer- 
sity division champion, withdrav/ing Walter Shelton, ejid with Northvife stern University 
removing Myron Piker because of injuries, the 70-yard dash field is topped by Eugene 
"Red" Littler of the University of Nebraska, 

Last year he took firsts in both the 4-40-yard run and 70-yard dash, with times 
of 51.0 and 7.1 seconds respectively . Ho'ward Millen of Marquette, a new Games contes- 
tant, took second in the 70-yard dash at Notre Dame's Central Collegiate last week, 
and might be a threat to Littler. Don Vosberg of Marquette in the 440-yard rion, 
should be heard from. 

Big Ten champions, nev/ly-cr owned last v/eek, vjill be present to strut their 
stuff. Bill Williams, University of V/isconsin pole vaulter, v/ho did 13 feet, lOf 
inches at Purdue Saturday, and George Paskvin, shotputter of the Badgers, v/ho made 
4.9 feet, 8 inches to v;in the same d ay, v.'ill be on tap. 

Thistlethvifaite of Northvife stern, v/hc took fifth in the Big Ten meet vdth 11 and 
1/8 inches less than his 1939 Gcanes standing vaulting record of 13 feet, 11 and I/8 
inches, Jim and Don Smith of Northwestern, who tied there for third in the high jump, 
and Captain Jim Ray of Chicago, also tieing for third in the same event, are expected 
to be at their bests for the season. 

The story of the high and lovir hurdles at the distance of 70-yards vdll probably, 
at least in the university division, be the story of hov/ tvro Northwestern University 
entrants perform. One of them, Charlie Horvath, v/ho took a third place in the Big Ten 
highs, and a fourth in the lows . in the same meet, will probably find his chief opp- 
osition from Joe Finch, who took a fourth in the Big Ten highs and virho last year did 
s08.7 to win the Tech Games highs. 

The college division of the high and low hurdles vdll bring Jim Fieweger and 
Jim Orwig of Lawrence College, Appleton, Wisconsin, dovm the lanes against Don Sommer—

field of Michigan State Normal College, v;ho took a fourth place at the recent Central 
Collegiate meet, - 

Art Egbert of Marquette, Clyde Halt of ihe University of Illinois, Bob Cobb of 
Drake University and Ed Darden of Kansas State may break into the point columns in 
the university section of the hurdles. Bob Keyes of Iov;a Teachers and Art Lancaster 
of Loyola University, both of whom are capable of bettcr-than-good performances on 
occasions, must be watched in the college section of the same. 

The college section of the Games habitually provides upsets and there seems 
little likelihood this year the Michigan State Normal, last year's vdnner, v;ill 
repeat. The shov/ing of Robert Osborne, sophomore from Illinois Institute of Techno- 
logy, in the 70-yard dash and the qu£trter-mile run, is expected to provide the dark- 
horse fillip of the meet. 

Of the small colleges in the Chicago urea North Central of Naperville, entering 
tv/enty- three men, seems to have a v/ell-balanced squad. Lyn Schendel in the 880-yard 
run and the mile vdll probably be among those close to the tape as it bretJcs. Bill 
Tervdlliger of Northern Illinois State Teachers College, Dekalb, who took a first in 
the quarter-mile last year, v;ill try hard to repeat. 

The university 880-yard run is one of the enigmas of the Games with Park Brov.n 
of Illinois, who took a second place in the Big Ten meet, the likliest contestant. 
Ray Randall of Chicago, talcing a fifth in the Big Ten showiip, and Lorence Stout of 
Illinois may figure in this event. 

In the shot put, pole vault, high jiim^-i, 880-yard and mile runs, all open events, 
points made by colleges will be counted separately from the general scoring, allovdng 
the small schools to grade their respective efforts. 

The device v/ill allov; good college shotputters such as Vince Jones of Lav/rence 
College, Appleton, and Ed Rosensv/eig of Michigan Normal to fight it out for division- 
al honors. The latter took a third place in the Central Collegiate meet at Notre 
Dame recently.

Final .warning that Monday, March 31, 'Jould be matriciolation day for cooperative 
courses in business and industrial manageri:ent, ws.s sounded by Ivliss Kathryn Judkins, 
1260 North Dearborn Street, coordinator. 

iln innovation in the preparation of students for top positions i.n the business 
and industrial -"orld, the cooperative com-'ses are taught at the Lei'.'is division of the 
Institute. Modeled on the v,'idelj''-hailed five year coopex'f.tive course in mechanical 
engineering^ taught at Armour College division since lv'36, t)ie new cooperative co'orses 
had their first enrollment on February 3. 

At that time eighteen students enrolled for a five-year course givJ.ng a bache- 
lor of science degi-ee in business and industrial management. As a part of their 
study -and-Y.'ork plan^ they v'ili leave classrooms. Monday, Iiaving spent eight ■'.■eaks stu- 
dying, for another eight-vreek period in the business r.'orld. This alternation r;ill 
take place through forty-eight weeks each year of fi.ve. 

Those matriculating Monday 7/ill take the places of the business-bound group. 
This type of study derives its name from the term '■cooperative" as applied to the nu- 
merous business and cormnercial firms assisting the Institute hj hiring enrollees tnd 
paying them prevailing v/ages. 

■ A striking for^ture 01 the cooperative plan is tiie abil.it:/ of students to pay 
their i-iay through school, taking care of incidental ezcpenses and of their general ex- 
penses during the periods the;'- return to classrooms. 



J..- ...^: 



At present, '"oir'.exi cooperp.tive -..tudents ere very mux-h In demand by firras, accord- 
ng to i.!isc Judkins. 

"The national eriergencjf period has made tt necessarj^ that lirins metke plans to 
'eplace men leaving for military training and other govornraent-creoted occupations by 
:raining intelligent and efficient woinen to fill exacting capacities," she said. 

"Naturall-/-, knovdng of our cooperative plan, basinessrnen seek to engage our stu- 
lents because they feel we are enrolling only those vho c.re buf-lness careerists in 
the best sense of that term,"

RE; MIDPEST POWER CONFERENCE HOLDS RECORD 
SESSIONS AT PAIJffiR HOUSE: I'/EDSESDAY - 
THURSDAY, APRIL 9-10, 1'%! 

FOR liVMEDIATE RELEASE 



V'ith production for defense and problems kindred to povfsr and utilities fields 
moujiting to a crest each day, plans for the f,iidTJest Poiver Conference, sponsored by 
Illinois Institute of Technology", mark it as the most important public gathering of ex- 
)ert3 in these fields in the nation, according to its Director, Professor Stanton E. 
finston. 

The Conference will be held Wednesday and Thursday, April 9-lC at the Palmer 
iouse . 

Professor IVinston, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Illinois In- 
stitute of Technology.', for four 7/ear3 host to the Corxference with cooperation of se- 
ven other universities and colleges, said that normal attendance at the tv/o-day ses- 
sion would be doubled this year. 

"A thousand experts in pov/er production, transKiission and cons'aiiiption activities 
twice the nuisber we have accominodatod in past seasons, "ill bo on hand to hear tv»'enty 
speakers of international reputation," ne stated. 

"With the nation tror.'!bling on the bria^c of unpredictable days, the Conference 
nay be the last opportunity many of these nien, associated intimately xvith federal or 
private agencies sparking the drive to make America ready for any emergency, may get 
to discuss at arms-length their mutual problems and the public v/elfare." 

Some of the speakers and gxiaste, unceasingly occuTjied at their desks since "ali- 
out" signals from the ITaite House, v;ill pass up regular vacation periods during the 
summer to make the trip to Chicago, Professor lYinston assorted. 

Engineers, utilities experts, teclinological editors and government and civil 
technologists are among those who have indicated they will be present. A great bene- 
fit of past Conforencos is the informality of discussion that prevails, according to 
Professor Winston.

RE; OPENING QF BASEBALL SEASON; SCHEDULE 
OF GAIAESj PLAYERS TURNOUT; FIRST 
SEASON FOR COACH YffiISSMAW| IN NORTH. 
ILL. COL. CONF. 

RELEASE FOR; KOKDAY, MARCH 31, 19A1 



T£.king to Ogden Field for the first outdoor drill of the 1941 baseball season, 
'orty-five Illinois Tech candidates, including a nucltms of fifteen men virho have gone 
;hrough indoor paces for three weeks, greeted Coach Bernard "Sonny" Vifeissman as he 
:alled practice today in preparation for a gruelling seven-week fight. 

The schedule opens on Wedi:iesday, April 9, with a tilt against Lake Forest College 
3n its home fields Several intengibles, as much as the fact of only eight days to 
prepare his pitchers and hitters for such a jjovjerful collegiate foe, have made hard 
vork imperative for the Techawk squad in Weissman's view. 

Wiether memories of 194-0' e eight losses as against five wins, the challenge of 
being the first baseball team to compete under the name of Illinois Institute of 
reclinology, or the fact of working under a new coach ?;ill add up to winning infspira- 
tion, is yet to be seen. 

VlTeissmcn, De Paul University baseball star of the late 'taventies, now boxing and 
wrestling coach and assistant athletic director of the Institute, has an optimistic 
outlook. 

"We need hitters rjid, after the middle of April, should have developed enough of 
them to hit the best pitching we will run up against," he said. 

"The fact that I have Lewis division of the Institute to draw material from this 
year has not, as yet, appeared to be a great advrjitage. However, it's too early to 
prophesy. All of our v/inter sports hi^ve gained a great deal from merger of the tv;o 
schools." 

Return to the Northern Illinois College Conference after an absence of two years 
vdll bring a surge of competitive spirit to his team, Weissm.-ji declared.

Elmliurst College, North Central College, Concordia (River Forest), and V:Jhe:-.ton 
lollege iivill be Conference foes. Eight of seventeen games for theaeason villi be played 
.n this group. 

Non-Conference opponents, in addition to Lake Forest, v/ill be LaviTence Tech 
Detroit), Michigan State Normal College(Ypsilantl) , Chicago Teachers College, Northern 
Illinois State Teachers College (DeKalb) , and University of Chic-.go, Only Chicago 
eachers College cxid Northern Illinois State Teachers College of these will be home- 
jid-home competitors. 

Major letter winners from last year, upon whom Coach VJsissman pins hopes for 
mproved team performance this season, include Co-captains Bill Bauch and Bill Krause. 
'he former is a catcher c,iid has been a regular for three years. The latter, also a 
■egular for thi^ee years, has played all field positionvS and probably will take over 
eft field this spring. Both hit .333 in 194-0, Krause making a n;jne as an extra-base 
titter. 

Outstanding pitcher of the squad is Alex Yursis, who last season also led the 
quad in hitting with ,350. His pitching average in 1940 was .500, in spite of indiff- 
erent batting support from his mates. It is expected that Al Dambros, a sophomore, in 
ds first year at the Institute, ?d.ll prove to be almost.- as proficient a slinger as 
'ursis. Dambros is a southpaw, v/ith plenty of v/eight behind his heaves. If this duo 
;an take turn and turn about, and the Techav/ks hit behind them, Weissman's squad will 
lave the makings of ii championship contender. 

One spot in the infield and one in tiie outfield ere expected to give the Engi- 
leers vifhat headaches they will experience. With Krause in left field, and Fred Lukens, 

.289 hitter last season in Center, Charley Achinakian, v;ho took a minor letter last 
spring, will return to right field. His hitting v/as poor and perhaps a nev/ face will 
36 seen there this year.

A shortstop vaCc-Jicy left by the 19^0 captain, Frank Leonard, may be hard to fill, 
im Thodos, who has had two years vath tlie- squad as a utility infielder and v;ho last 
ear won a major letter for work at third base, will probably h:.ve first call on the 
)03ition. 

He is not a spectacular hitter but has the advantage of seasoning by work with 
.he remainder of the probr.ble infield. Just what freshjnen will develop as practice 
swings into full gear, to mtice a good fight for the right-field and shortstop spots, 
s problematical. 

At first base Vv'eissman will be giving first cc.ll to Marvin "Hod" Carrier, viho 
/on his letter last year at thit position after starting the season as an outfielder, 
rrier is a good fielder and a smart batter, one v;ho can hit Vi^hen needed and manage 
[-0 get himself on base in a number of wayp. 

Roger Mueller, regular second-basemaxi for two years, will be back to cover his 
jeat. He made only one error during 194-0, At third base Bill Grosse, a major-letter- 
Bfinning veterejTi of two Cijnpaigns, will again be in evidence , Ho has a fine tlu-owing 
irra, can hit fairly well, and as a senior will be playing his hardest. 

As yet no outstanding substitute for Co-captain Bill Bauch ajjpears among nev/ men 
f;ho hope to succeed as catchers. Outfielder Lukens can take on the task of backstopp- 
Lng creditably, as he did so last year when Bauch' s fingers were injured. Leland Olsen 
a sophoiaore, who v/as a bull-pen catcher last season, if his whip improves may be in for 
some active duty. His hitting is an unknovm quantity as yet. 

One left-handed pitcher, in addition to Danbros, will get hif; chance to make good 
this season. Herb Bay, the southpav;, and George Lykowski won minor letters in 1940 and 
with control and change of pace should come along nicely. A third pitcher, a novice, is 
Bill McDonough, of whom little is predictable as yet. Roman Mankus, whose pitching 
v/on a minor letter in 1940, will be Virorking hard for a regular miound assignment.

RELEivSE FOR: MONDiiY, MaRCH 31, 19-^ 

M. Vif. Fodor, professorial lecturer in social science of Illinois Institute of 
Bchnology, will speak at the annual meeting of the Anerican Academy of Political and 
ocial Science in Philadelphia, Friday, April 4-, at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel. 
_ "The Revolution Is On" vdll be his subject. An authority on new governments In 
iirope, Fodor has been lecturing in the Lewis division of the Institute on the basis 
f observations during a career as a newspaper correspondent in all parts of Europe. 

Particularly noted for his penetrating analysis of Balktoi affairs, Fodor came 
his greatest fane as a writjr for The Manchester Guardian , The Chicago Daily Nevfs 
nd American syndicates. He hi.s produced novels and numerous articles have appeared 
a The Nation , The New Republic , Atlantic Monthl y and Fortune . 

According to John Gunther, correspondent and novelist, Fodor "has the most acute- 
Y comprehensive laiowledge of Central Europe of any journalist living todays he is 
etter informed than the British in Central Europe and the foreign office pays close 
ttention to his dispatches." 

Born in Budapest, and educated as an engineer, Fodor as a young man bcciJiie in- 
ensely interested in the rise of the modern "power" state. He was equipped with se- 
ei-al languages and set out x.o investigate us a journalist the phenomena of communism, 
ascism and the men v;ho made them exist. 

It was at the peak of a brilliant post-war career, in the early 'thirties, that 
e became the most-cuoted correspondent in the English press. Hitler, Mussolini, Laval, 
alazar, Petain, Goebbels and many other statesmen of the nev/ order became his news 
ources. 

The fall of Vienna, of Prague and the fate that overtook Warsaw and other Europ- 
an cities came as major shocks to much of the world. But to Fodor, who had predicted

jhe emergence of the "super-state" and its policies during many years, these events 
,vere only a confirmation of his hypotheses. 

His reactions to the situation of the United States eis this juncture of its 
li&tory, his analyses of the American plcce in the v/orld power-politics scheme, are 
sxpected to provide one the chief topics of discussion of sessions of the iui^-erican 
i,caderay of Political and Social Science. 

Axis strategy with the coming of spring and suiiimer months v;ill be notable develop 
nents of the war abroad that Fodor v;ili attempt to interpret. He vdll also comment 
3n the situation of It:ily in Africa and the complexities of the Greek problems of 
combined defense ijid offense. 

The role of Yugoslavia as a late-arriv,- 1 ally of the Axis, iJid the v/ide economic 
jid military scope of Ballaji participation in the wax, vdll be covered in fodor' s

RE: JUNIOR WEEK MARSHALS AND OPEN HOUSE 
CELEBRATION AND DISPLAYS; FROSH- 
SOPH RUSH I OPEN HOUSE, MY 6-7; 
JR. 7ffi., MAY 6-9. 

FOR RELEASES SUNDAY, APRIL 13, 1941 



Junior Vfeek at Illinois Institute of Technology, traditional festival time of 
burly engineers, vri.ll this year vdtness shattering of precedent as the first girl 
junior marshal elected during thirty-five years of the observance steps into a nan's 
size job. 

She is pretty Mary Elizabeth Spies, a junior architect from Fayetteville, Arkan- 
sas, living here at IAI4. E. 59th Street. She is among six. junior class marshals 
chosen, one from, each major department, to take charge of activities during four days 
of extracurricular activity beginning Tuesday, May 6. 

Just how v;ell a coed will be able to referee a class rush between fresbjnen and 
sophomores, alvvays as dangerous a post as being involved in the scrimmage itself, is 
a question-mark. Head junior marshal, John Butkus, civil engineering student and next 
year's v/restling team co-captain, says Miss Spies is determined to meet each diffi- 
culty as it arises. 

Assisting Butktis, in addition to Miss Spies, v/ill be the follovdng; 

Robert Sullivan, mechanical engineering department| Frank Keminet, chemJ.cal engi- 
neering department; Carl Sparenberg, fire protection engineering department; FJilliam 
Dres, electrical engineering department; and Charles I. Ball, civil engineering de- 
partment. 

Aside from the day on v/hich the class rush takes place, and the general atti- 
tude of disrespect for constituted authority that results in the "depantsing" even of 
junior marshals themselves, uiidergraduates devote themselves their classes adjourned, 
to genteel cjid constructive pursuits at which Misg Spies and her colleagues vdll 
officiate.

HOLD OVER TO 4/IO/4I FOR Mi'S 



America's standard of living is at stake imless engineers plan ably for a post- 
v/ar as vrell as war-tiiae world, Philip Harrington, commissioner of subways and super- 
highways, this morning told more than 1,000 guests of the Midv/est Pov/er Conference at 
the Palmer House. 

A graduate of Illinois Institute of Teciinology, which is for the fourth year spon 
soring the Conference v.lth seven cooperating universities and colleges, Harrington 
opened the two-day meet v/ith an address of vrelcome. Public utilities experts, engi- 
neers and technologists from over the nation made up the audience. 

"In the nation you are playing a most important role in all phases of the de- 
fense program," he said. 

"All our ingenuity and ability are now being required to adapt our economic mach- 
ine, virhich vjas built for peace-time pui'suits, to produce with speed not only our every- 
day needs but the materials and equipment essential to rearmament and defense. 

"?Jhile this gigantic task is forging ahead sv/iftly and smoothly, other t^ngineers 
are tilready engaged in formulfLting a progrcm and detailed plans for shifting the vast 
rearmiament program back to peaceful pursuits ^^vhen the threat of war is finally repelled 

"In many respects, this job may be even more difficult than gearing the plants 
of our economic system for arming the nation. Upon the skill of our planning, and the 
vigor and understanding v/ith \;hich these plans are carried out, rests in large measure 
our ability to cushion the shock of a cessation of hostilities not only as to our own 
economic system, but to the v;orld economic system as well. 

"At stake for us is our American standard of living. Yet I have no fear of its 
being wrecked in the aftermath of the present conflict, because I am confident that

/•ou on the industTial firing line and we who have public planning tuid achievement as 
our task, can be relied upon to do our part." 

Never before, not excepting T/orld War I, has the nation in preparing for defense 
attempted such a gigantic job, tjid the engineering profession is accomplishing its 
work expeditiously and v/ithout fanfare, Harrington declares. 

Praising e:xperts in pov/er production, trtjismission and consumption for contribu- 
tions to the development and progress of ChiCcLgo, he traced the engineer's role in the 
growth of the city. 

"Vflien Chicago was but an outpost in the v;ildemess, engineers built fort Dear- 
born, which gave the city security and azi oppor-ounity to survive the hazards that sur- 
rounded it," Harrington said. 

"^iTnen Chicttgo bec^one a thriving town, by virtue of its energy and strategic lo- 
cation on the water highways provided by nature, engineers built the Illinois-Michigan 
canal to integrate these natural routes. 

"V/hen inventive genius provided the steam locomotive, engineers made Chicago the 
rail transport-ition center of the nation. 

"As Chicago grew and expanded, engineers kept pace vjith its development, contri- 
buting their skill ai'id energy/ and counsel to the city's grovvth and progress. Tiiey 
pulled the city out of the s^;amp in \.'hich. it v/as foixoded; they tapped Lake Michigan to 
give Chicago a first-class, ine>diaustible MiXev supply, 

"Engineers provided sanitation by reversing the Chicago river, by building a 
labyr-inth of intercepting tunnels to divert sev/age from the l;..ke water supply, tJid a 
system of sewage disposal vrorks second to none. In this area was developed the m.odern 
conception of povrer trcinsmission and power pooling. Parks caid bathing beaches vrere 
created, schools built, institutions established for the study of the arts and science

Details of the Chicago subway and superhighway systems depend basically on the 
engineer for their luruherance, Harrington declared. 

Following the Harrington address, Dr. L, S. Grinder, vice-president of Illinois 
Institute of Technology and dean of its graduate school, acting as chairnit'Ji of the 
Wednesday morning panel, introduced Ruber 0. Croft, head of the department of mechan- 
ical engineering, the State University of lov/a, who responded to the welcoming talk. 

"Power Facilities and the Defense Program" was the subject of C. If'J. Kellogg, 
chief consultant cf the pov/er unit. Office of Production Management, Washington, D.C. 
His remarks vrere impromptu, no written copies having been made availaDle. 

"i^i Rtisume of Present Day Power Trends" was developed by A. G« Christie, profess- 
or of mechanical engineering of The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. 
This was the concluding talk of the morning panel. 

The fate of electricity as motive power for United States industry during war 
will be bound up with the success of auxiliary steam, Diesel engine, gas turbine and 
other methods of generating power that occupy less conspicuous geographical positions 
and are less susceptible to bombing from the air than the hydro-electric plonts that 
furnish it, Christie said. 

"From a military point of view, hydro-electric pleunts are -Ailnerable while long- 
distance transmissions lines are subject to interruptions. These considerations em- 
phasize the necessity of steam stand-by service in the corm;rjnities served. Also trans 
mission lines should be located so that these can be easily patrolled in case of war. 

"Great central stations have been built and others will be planned. But one m.us 
consider factors which may influence their size. Difficulties arise where too mtny 
large feeders must radiate from a single point, A large station makes an excellent 
target foi aircraft attack. 

"A number of smaller stations feeding into vt'rious portions of the distribution 
system would make the system less liable to complete outage. The large stations emits

enormous volumes of flue gases into the surrounding atmosphere, the disiDersion of 
Mch raises problems. A number of smaller stations e;r.itting the sarae total gas volume 
it widely scattered points would lead to more satisfactory dissipation. 

"Finally, the practice of unit construction of one-boiler-one-turbine permits 
ihe design of smaller plants with efficiencies practically equal to the super-power 
Dlant. A trend towards more scattered stations of moderate size may be considered a 
['uture possibility." 

Baring untimely strikes, sabotage or dislocation of labor in plants building 
Dlant equipment, electric utilities appear able to meet all demands due to the defense 
emergency, Christie declared. 

"In 1937 a noticeable improvement in business made it apparent that can early 
pick'-up in industry would require additional generating capacity," ho said. 

"This has proved a fortunate circumstance for the equipment ordered at that time 
is now available. The start of the war in 1939 and the I'apid rise in industry since 
then have greatly increased the dem.ands for power. 

"Fortunately, new hydro-electric capacities no\/ available, together with the 
resurves of the public utiliti.is, have been sufficient to meet all demands to dax,e, 
with a ruasonable stund-by. In the meantime, additional equipment aggregating a large 
kilov.'att cap^.city h;.s be.jn ordered or is being installed, r.nd this will add to -avail- 
able power as demands increase." 

Latest availablu figures, according to Christie , show thi^t 26 per cent of the 
kilowatt-hours output of public utilities ciime from hydro plants though th..^ installed 
capacity v;as 28 per cent of tlio total of hydro and steam capacity in ^11 public util- 
ity pov/er plants. 

"Canada possesses m;..ny large undeveloped sites ranging from Labrador to the Paci- 
fic Coast which can be developed as needs arise in the future. By means of remedial

FOR RELEASE; THlliSDAY, APRIL 10, 19a 

Operation of Tennessee Val.ley Authority projects, ijnd design rnd construction of 
turbines for electriCL.1 and Gteijn utility at the nation's largest power centers, were 
liscussed by three outstanding uuthoritier yesterdiy at the Midvrest Power Conference 
In the Palmer House. 

The Conference, a two-day meeting of more than 1,000 utilities experts, engineers; 
Ljid technologists ending tonight, is sponsored ty Illinois Institute of Technology 
and seven cooperating loniversities md colleges. 

Sherman M. Woodwt.rd, chief water control pl'uu.:ing engineer of T.V.A. , W. J. 
Rheingans, test engineer of Allis-Chalaers Manufacturing Company of r7lilvifaul<ee , and 
C. C, Franck, engineer in charge of contra! station tux'bines o£ Westinghouse Electric 
nd Manufacturing Company, Phil:.delphia, v/ere speaKers on Cifternoon panels. 

?ifoodi.7ard, under the panel heading of "Hydro Pov/er," spoke on "The Operation of 
the Multi-Purposo Projects of the Tennesset; Valley Authority." 

Power production, navigation taid flood control on the Tennes-.ee River from its 
mouth at Paducch, to Knoxville, by dcias cxid reservoirs, laid similar uses of the lower 
Ohio cjid Mississippi Rivers were provided for under enactment of T.V.Ax's program. 
Woodward reminded his uUdience. 

"Six of the reservoirs along the Tennessee are now in operation and three more 
are under construction and will be completed within the next three or foui' jrears," he 
said. 

"The nuiriber of dams has been kept to the smallest possible and still a.ccomplish 
their purpose. Hence, the dams are so spaced along the river tiiat each succeeding 
one is close to the upper limit of the preceding reservoir, but they are separated a 
little farther thsua would have been needful to provide full navigation deptiis at the 



■1. ij . .li ' ; 






:1 . :-: ,1 • ..'.J 



apper ends of the Reservoirs. It has been necessary, therefore, in order to provide 
for full nine-foot draft of vessels throughout the year to deepen the channel just be- 
lov; each dam by a limited c-jnount of dredging." 

The course of the Tennessee River, formed by junction of the Holston .nd French 
Broad Rivers, winds some 65O miles through Tennessee, Al'-brana and Kentucky before it 
joins the Ohio at Paducah, Wood-ward explained. 

"In each reservoir the maximum water level is limited by the locations ca^.d ele- 
vations of cities, railroads :aid highways along the river, .vith the head developed at 
various dams different for each site but averaging between 50 uid 60 feet," he said. 

"In addition to the mt.in stretmi reservoirs the Authority has several storage 
reservoirs on tributary streams. Operation of main strecan reservoirs, because they 
present in v;hat m.y be fairly considered' to be t^rpical fundeai:ental form the general 
principles of multi-purpose operation, are my main concern here. The tributary reser- 
voirs will be used to store water during the wet season for release during the dry 
season. This use bears a general resemblance to the method of use of the main stream 
reservoirs, and contributes to the main objectives of navigation, flood protection und 

power production." 

Total river flow at a given point in the Tennessee Valley in the wettest year is 
over two and one-h...lf times the flow in the driest year and it cji be demonstrated 
there is no regularity in alternation of dry and wet years, Woodward declared. 

"Although ma>dmum floods on the Tennessee River come rarely, they are tremendous 
in size when they occur and constitute an important part of large floods on the lower 
Mississippi River. Although the area of the Tennessee River drainage basin is only 
one-fifth of the Ohio River drainage basin, the Tennessee supplies about one-fourth of 
the total flow in the Ohio River. 

"The Ohio River area is only one-sixth of the total Mississippi River drainage 
area, but the Ohio supplies more than half of the whole flow in the lower Mississippi

liver. Thus the inrportar.ce, c.nd the difficulty, of the problem of controlling floods 
)n the Tennessee River is shovm." 

Small floods muy occur cjiy month but the largest are all confined to a period 
beginning .^ith January and ending v/ith April. Yfiieeler ReGervoir, in operation for 
E.bout four years, has a yearly cycle of operation that Cc.n be described as typical for 
nost, according to Woodv^ard. 

"Beginning v;ith the winter season, the reservoir will be held at an elevation 
.round 550 feet above sea level? during periods of lov. flov« in the river the water 
surface stands practically level throughout the length of the reservoir," he said. 

"The actual elevation will not be constant during these months; but every time 
a flood occurs, the reservoir will be filled more or l-.ss, and will then be gradually 
dram doim again after the flood is past. After the first week of April, according to 
past records, there is nc serious danger of a maximum flood occurring. 

"The water level will then be held at the top of the g<'..tes for a fev; days in or- 
der to permit floating debris to strand on the banks of the reservoir as fully as 
possible. After that, the reservoir wi].l be held at a level of about 550 feet for 
several \.'eeks until the end of the fish-spa'.ming season, which may be considered to be 
around the middle of May. 

"Beginning about that tim.j, the water level v;ill be given a weekly fluctuation, 
still maintaining the maxiraum level as high as possible. This is for the purpose of 
preventing mosquito breeding along the reservoir m^^rgin and also to retard the develop- 
ment of vegetation at the edge of the water. 

"Beginning at some time in June or July, the water level in the reser'voir will 
be slowly drawn down in addition to having the weekly fluctuations. The seasonal 
drawdown permits the stored water- to be used for the development of power during the 
low water season, extending from July to December, and also assists in the control of 
malaria-disseminating mosquitoes. The menace of the malaria-bearing mosquito is

supposed to be over for the siumner season about October 1. Subsequent to that, there- 
fore, the reservoir may be either dravm down further for power production, if needed, 
or it may be used to store water from the rather rare, heavy fall rains." 

Follov/ing '"'oodward in the "Hydro Power" panel, Rheingans spoke on "Construction 
of ^8,000 HP Kaplan Turbines for the Pickwick Landing Dam of T.V.A." 

Tv/o units of six projected 4.8,000 HoP, Kaplan turbines, installed at Pickwick 
Landing Dara as part of the Tennessee Valley ■^'■uthority on the Tennessee River, are the 
largest built in the United States and are a close second to the largest in Europe, 
according to Rheingans. 

Now under construction are two turbine units of the remaining four, to be com- 
pleted at the Allis-Chalmors r^1il\Taukee plant for service in 194-2. Evolution of the 
Kaplan propeller-type turbine is of paramount interest in the field of design for 
utilities, Rheingans asserted. 

"The first propeller-type turbine was installed in 1916. The first adjustable 
blade runner installed in 192,4 required unwatering of the turbine fliunc, because the 
adjustment vfas made at the runner hub, A year liter, this was .improved upon by having 
the adjustment made at the coupling between the turbine shaft r.aid generator shaft, 
which did not require unwatering the flujne but required stopping of the unit. This lei 
to the next logical step of a motor-operated arrangement in which the blades could be 
adjusted at v/ill vxth the lanit in oper.-..tion. 

"In the mean time, the Kaplcai turbine in x/hich the runner blades are adjusted 
automatici.lly, depending upon the position of the guide vines, v/as being developed in 
Europe, and the first installation in this countrj^ was made in 1928," PJieingans said. 
i Speaking under the panel heading of "Central Station Practice," franck titled 
his talk "Modern Steam Turbine Design." 

"The metallurgical aspect in the design of m.odei-n steam turbines probably holds 
the center of importance," he said.

"The 'creep' or grov/th of metals ^onder elevated teraperatiires and permanent de- 
formation ss a fimction of tenperature and allov.'able stress provided the necessary 
tools to enable the designer to develop adequate structures. 

"'Relaxation' of bolting was carefully inve.stigated and suitable raaterials deve- 
loped. The development of bolting has been a major problem and materials v;ith high 
'relaxation' stress values v;ere in the majority of cases found lacking in other essen- 
tial properties. 

"Compromises v/ere necessary and, while high teB;perature bolting is performing 
satisfactorily^ it is under careful scrutiny. Particular care is taken in the design 
and manufacture of this class of bolting to establish precision of finish in order to 
eliminate all influences other thfjn the direct action of the members being held to- 
gether. Experience has dictated that high temperature bolting should not be subjected 
to heavy wrenching ajid the general practice is accurately to set up bolts by the use 
of 'heating elements' and light wrenching," Franck stated, 

"Metallurgical development hi.s also contributed in the investigation of material 
by the X-ray and Gairima-ray processes. Casting flav;s in relatively thick walls are 
readily disclosed by such investigations. 

An informal "All-Engineers" dinner, at which Dr. Harvey N. Davis, president of 
Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey, spoke on "Priorities in Men," 
was held at 6;4-5 p.ci.

TECHNOLOGY - VIC.46OO DURING JUNIOR YfEEK., LiAY 6-9, 194.1 

RELEASE: FOR MONDAY, /iPRIL 7, 194-1 

Architectural students of Illinois Instj.tute of Technology, in a bold move raock- 
ing thirty-five years of tradition have elected a girl as junior marshal to represent 
their department during Junior T'eek, May 6-9, on Armour College campus. 

Junior Week is the stisraial celebr?.tion period of the Institute, a tLnie of spring 
recess, nuraerous scholastic ez-chibits, games, athletic contests and social affairs. 
The public is invited to inspect the campus, and alumni 3.nd friends come from afar. 
It has alwa;.'-s been a time vhen husky engineers luled the roost. 

But Mary Eliz.abeth Spies, Ll'^14- East 59th Street, v.-hose home is in Fayetteville , 
Arkansas, and who is one of fi-."a girls in tlie entire /irmour division, is the innocent 
disturber of cobwebbed custom. Of course, each of five other departments has elected 
a male marshal as usual. 

Former junior marshals scattered over the vorld - in China building e. bridge, in 
Africa perspiring over blueprints of a dam, at Little America in the Antarctic shiver- 
ing over a Diesel contraption - v.'ill stare incredulously at the alumni magazine that 
blares the ne^vs. 
1 For in the old day, and they were there to witness, junior marshals had to be as 
rough and ready as could be obtained. 7 hough officials of J'unior V-'eek, they were usu- 
ally subjects of pranks of fellow-students. 

Solicitous junior marshals of 194-0, informed of the architectural department 
vote, have warned beautiful Miss Spies of the following. 

Junior marshals .must referee tJie armual freshiraan-sophomore rush, in v.'hich each 
class battles for possession ox straw dumjnies set in the middle of Ogden Field. Stu- 
dents of other classes stand on the sidelines and pelt the contestants with rotten 
eggs, old tomatoes, hoarj' cabbages. . . . Could she take it? 

Junior marshals have been knov-ii to disappear during the height of festivities 
and to be picked up by the coast guard as they floatvid in Lake Michigan, llovj about the

There was a junior marshalj one year, who v/as sent over to nearby Comisky Field 

to shag foul-balls during batting-practice . He was hit In the head by a pop bottle . 

v:alk 
A few years ago, a junior marshal had to/atop the length of the spike and pick- 

3t board fence surrounding Ogden Field, a process taking some three hours. 

And then, of course, junior marshals have traditionally been "depantsed" some- 
time during a solemn event, such as the presentation of athletic av;ards on Ogden 
Field. Well, how about it? 

Miss Spies, the pride of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, a member of the junior 
class commission, a graduate of University of i^rkansas High School, Little Rock, had. 
only one ansv/er to make, it is reported (in a southern drawl):

TECHNOLOGY-VIC. 4.6OO DAY MD THURSDAY, APRIL 9-10, 194.1 1 

PALMER HOUSE. 

FOR RELEASE: THlIRSDivY, APRIL 10, 194-1 
Factory assembly or prefabrication of electrical equipment as an outgrovrth of 
tandardization has been a large factor in per::iitting the national defense progrejn to 
)rogress, W. J. McLachlan, engineer of the General Electric Company, Schenectady, New 
brk, declared at this morning's session of the Midwest Power Conference at the Palmer 
[ouse. 

The Conference, a two-day meeting of more than 1,000 utilities experts, engineers 
md technologists ending tonight, is sponsored by Illinois Institute of Technology and 
even cooperating universities and colleges. 

"Trends in Equipment Design in Relation to Economics and Defense" was the subject 
Df his speech. McLachlan has charge of the apparatus line sponsor section at the Gen- 
ral Electric plant and the heading of the panel on which he spoke was "Electric Power 
Transmission. " 

"This country has gone through a period of several years when virtually no sub- 
stations viTere built and the considerable forces ox engineers v>/ho devoted their energies 
before 1930 to the design and construction of substations have long since turned to 
other fields of endeavor," McLachlan said. 

"It seems safe to say that, had not the advent of the factory-assembled station 
occurred during this period, this country v/ould be faced with a bottleneck of serious 
proportions due purely to the lack of experienced substations designers, 

"The same situation wou].d probably be com.plicated by lack of personnel experience^ 
in the construction of such stations. Major defense plants are reouiring the construc- 
tion of up to twenty-five substations per plc/jit, quite commonly. Individual shipyards 
are installing many large substations simultaneously. Other defense activities create 
a com.parable demand.

"The factory assembly of complete equipments hj.s been z. lifesr.ver in this emer- 
gency. An engineering nucleus, such as that retained by the substation manufacturer 
through the depression, can be expanded rapidly. 

"That is because of the assistance which can be rendered by the experienced engi- 
neer in training nev« men. More iraportcjit,, these engineers deal in standiLrdised desigiis 
ivith ST^andard m^-thods, so that the education of new men is simplified and therebj'- enor- 
nously expedited, and the output per men is greatly increased." 

Few persons realize fully the extent to which a demand is being levied on the 
electrical industry in connection with the present defense program, McLaclilan asserted. 

"Today, ive live electrically — today, v/e prodiice electrically — today, electricity 
is vital to the very operation of every defense plan, shipyard, air base, navi.l base 
and army camp. 

"As these defense institutions spring up, the demands for poiver pyramid. Much 
has been said regarding our ability to meet the needs from the standpoint of generation 
Some discussion of transmission facilities has ensued. But, I vronder how many have 
considered the problems of the distribution systems, and parti cult.rly the substations 
v/hich are required for the supply of every one of these new power loads. 

"Transfer of skill, from persons using tools to the machines, has permitted rapid 
training of mcjiuf acturing personnel, and to the extent that such Icbor has supplanted 
construction crews in the field, the much longer training periods for the skilled arti- 
sans in the field has bean made unnecessai-y," he said. 

"The benefits of quantity production stand out in bold relief in times like these. 
The factory-built substations are being fabricated from duplicate component parts. In 
fact, many of the complete stations are exact duplic;..tes. This means maximum produc- 
tion in minimum time, v/hich is now so vital." 

The country hc-s only awakened to the possibilities of mess production of defense 
equipments, McLachlan declared.

"V/e have only begun to recognize the opportunities for expediting defense 'work 
of this type through standardization. There is no reason why plant after plant cannot 
be supplied with virtually duplicate substation equipments. It is being found econo- 
nical (and desirable froni the standpoint of physical diversifications of supply routes) 
to locate several substation units throughout plroats and buildings, rather than to use 
one large stepdo?m substation of a size dependent on the individual plant. 

"The number of units, rather th---n the siae of the unit, varies vath the size of 
the plant. These distributed units can be factory-assembled and ctai be standardized 
in a small range of sizes. These same principles can be applied in the supply of air 
bases, naval bases, army training camps and other defense institutions. 

"Another approach of value in defense v/ork is the use of mobile substations which 
can now be obtained complete from the manufacturer in capacities generally comparable 
with the stationary assembled substation. Such equipments can be used to supply in- 
dustries Y;hich spring up overnight. 

"They caji furnish pov/er during constx'uction and early operation. Of even greater 
importance, they can be used as the reserve for stationary units. One mobile unit can 
move in and ttilce over in case of failure in any one of ma.ny stationary units. The 
opportunities are truly great in the use of portable equipment. 

"Thus, we are finding that the factory assembly approach in this area, not only 
is economical, but is of great value in the defense program, V«'e have much more to 
learn to obtain the maximura benefit from this approach — but, the start has been made, 
the nucleus is there and American ingenuity v/ill carry us forward— not only in this 
field, but also in others as factory fabric.. tion is found to be economically justifi- 
able." 

"Increasing Povrer Production 'with Present Boiler Facilities" was the subject of 
address by R.S. Havjley, acting chairmim, department of mechanical engineering of the 
University of Miehigaoi. Under the panel heading, "Industrial Povrer Plants," it was

"The industrial steam boiler plant or the povver plant can be thought of as a 
factory which b'jgina its process with certain raw materials and converts these mater- 
ials into manufactured products," Havaey said. 

"Every plant manager recognizes the iinporta.nce of purchasing high-grade raw mater^ 
ials if he v/.'-mts a high-grade j finished product and also realises the practical necess- 
ity of analyzing factoiy methods and conversion costs. 

"Unfortunately not all managements are willing to give even a reasonable amount 
of thought to the boiler room V/hich serves their plt.nts. Activities in recent years, 
tiov;evGi', are an indication that pl'-Jit owners are rapidly becoming aware of the savings 
that can be made in the power house by the use of properly selected, fuel, high-grade 
equipment and good opert.ting methods. 

"Since the raw materials used in the proctoction of steam are fuel, air and water, 
biny study of operation must necessarily include one or all of these three items, and 
the proper selection and treatment of the ra.w materii.ls must affect the pl^nt economy 
and capacity, 

"Some will recall tha.t in 191B the Cjovemment crea.ted a Fuel iidministration and 
that one of the regulations was the zoning of coalj that is, cos.l mined in certain 
fields w-us to be distributed for use -within rather definite areas. Little thought was 
given to the type of equipment in the power pli-.nts of ea.ch are^. ond the results v/as 
that many plant ov.Tiers were compelled to purchase and use coal not at all suited to 
their particular equipm.ent. 

"Under the regul£.tion of the Fuel Adjnini strati on they were compelled to use a 
low-grade coal with a high ash content, low ash softening temperature ajid a considerable 
amount of dirt. Because of the pla,nt demands it v as necessary to operating it at as 
high ratings as possible.

"The result, of course, w.-^s iJi enorinous .amount of soft clinker which giannied up 
the grates '^nd impinged on the boiler tubes. In three 'j/eeks operation the gus pt^ss- 
iges between the boiler tubes were reduced to such an extent that the boiler hitd to be 
taken off the line. Thi;j c.se is cited merely to shov; the fallacy of ^:tter;.pting to 
ise coal that is not suitable for the particular pl.nt equipment." 

Any attein;^it to improve boiler plcjit efficiency .and incre^.se capacity necessarily 
Degins v;ith the selection of coal, Hav.ley said. 

"These fi.ctors should figure in the buying of coal for pover pliiits: 

"Cot^t f.o.b., freight and doliverj- cost, hGt:;t concent, volatile content, ash 
lontent, moisture content, hydz'Ogen content, sulphur content, ash x'using ter.iporature,

RELE.-iSE: WEDNESDAY V9//+1 

In the opening gume of the 19A1 Reason the Illinois Tech Baseball Tear, will meet 
juke Forest College in the North Shore Suburb on Wednesdi^.y, April, 9th in a non-league 
contest . 

In all probability the Techav.-k team that takes the field against the Jaybirds 
vill be composed of nine m<..jor lettermcn, all of whom remember quite vividly the two 
S-3 defeats of last year at the hands of the Foresters. A newcomer to the scene how- 
ever will be the Engineer coach, Bernard "Sonny" Vj'eissman. 

"Sonny" came to iirmour in 19^9 as coach of v.Testling and boxing from DePaul Lavi? 
School v;here he excelled in athleticfi while earning his degree. In the succeeding 
years he has become manager of the student union and assistant to Jolm J. Schonmier, 
athletic director. He holds licenses from both the Illinois State Boxing Commission 
end the National iunateui' Athletic Association as a referee. His appointrnx-nt as base- 
ball coach came last fall. 

It will be a long time before a batter;^ is uncovered that will comp£-re with the 
combination of Alexuider Yursis and V/iliiiim Bauch. In 63 innings of nine games "^lex" 
struck out 61 batters for a better th^n .500 ^.verage in games won. His true value is 
not realized however until the batting averages are consulted. Alex batted an even 
.350 to lead the Techawk squad last season. 

Bill Bauch, the receiver of the combination, iJid Co-Captain of the team, is the 
spark plug of the squc.d. .aid with a batting average of .333 no one ccn accuse him of 
merely "talking" a good gciie though he does the latter quite proficiently. Both of 
these IcLds are seiiiors and their loss will be a severe loss to the Engineers. 

The other Co-Captain is William Krause, a product of Lane Tech's Ptrcy Moore. 
?rnile patrolling left field for the Techawks last season Bill batted .333 in the clear 
up position.

FROM; ALEXyJDER SCHREIBER RE: MIDWEST POl^fER CONFERENCE? M/uTOR C. W, 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF LEIHY, F.A., SPEMSj 12:15 P.M. 

TECHNOLO&Y-VIC. ;i600 LUNCHEON, APRIL 10, 194-15 PALMER HOUSE. 

FOR RELEASE; THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 19^1 

The electrical power industry is a leading factor in defense efforts since it 
supplies the essential ingredient of industrial expansion. Major Cherries Wa Leihy, 
F.A. , of Chicago, formerly editor of Electric Light and Power , said today in an address 
before the Midwest Power Conference at the Palraer House. 

At a noon luncheon, jointly sponsored with the American Institute of Electrical 
Engineers, Major Leihy was presented by Frank V. Smith to more than 1,000 guests. His 
subject was "Aspects of the National Poiver Pool, Defensively and /afterwards." 

Stressing that his remarks did not officially represent the ?ifar Department, 
Major Leihy outlined the position of electrical utilities today, 

"Fortunately the industry is well-prepared to meet the requirements of the de- 
fense program and our power pool, virith the reserve that such a connotation includes, 
is one of the most important single elements in our defensive strength," he said. 

"In the old days, military power was reckoned in man-pov/erj today military pov;er 
is measured by man-power multiplied by machine power. Therein lies the strength of 
the country's productiveness as the arsenal of democracy, for here each v;orker com- 
mands or controls some 5 ho p. of production machinery compared v/ith the European aver- 
age of 1.2 h.p, per worker. 

"Just what is this power pool? Briefly it consists of some 900 large, modern 
pov/er stations, supplemented by numerous smaller plants and industrial power stations 
which aggregate at present slightly over 4.0,000,000 kilowatts in available capacity. 

"The plants vriiich comprise this reservoir of power vary from the modern, high- 
efficiency station vjhich turns out a kilowatt-hour for every pound of coal burned to 
the technically-obsolete standby plant, the operation of which makes the compcaiy 
treasurer moan v/ith anguish," Major Leihy declared.

All plants, hov;everj are available to turn out usable kilowatt-houi"s on rela- 
tively short notice, vdth 7,000,000 kilovjatts of nevi plcJits being built, which, added 
to present capacity, ^vill aggregate an approximate total of 4-6,000,000 kilov/atts by 
the end of 194-2, allowance being made for depreciation of equipment. 

"Defensively this capacity is a tremendous asset, primarily because it is v/ell- 
distributed geographict.lly," he said. 

"Early this year the Federal Power Commission initiated a study of the rela- 
tionship betvreen availc.ble capacity and peak requirements for approximately 50 arecLS 
v/hich in total comprise the forty-eight states. 

"The relationship of this c-apacity to defense needs and requirements of ead:i of 
these areas involves consideration of the transmission facilities v/hich, in effect, 
makes capacity available when, where and in the quantities needed for practically a,ny 
locality. 

"Thus geographic distribution of capacity plus transmission facilities provide 
a flexibility that aids defense pltJining, eliminating restrictive considerations in- 
volving the availability of povjer. It makes possible advantageous location of defense 
production facilities solely from the standpoint of the proximity of fuel, ravi mater- 
ials, labor or other important factors." 

The country east of the Mississippi River is organized into five great regional 
networks, each network being the outgrov/th of economic dictates for better operations, 
Major Leihy stated. 

"Careful engineering and economic considerations concerning reliability, reduc- 
tion in reserves, conservations of peak reqiiirements, balance between stefoii and hy- 
draiilic facilities, all have contributed to the formation of these va^st electrical 
integrations. 

"There are certain interesting aspects in the development of this huge system of 
power supply that iimneasurably improve its utilization from a defense standpoint.

"Engineers huve long recognized, that economics are a hard master insofar as long- 
iistance transmission lines are concerned. Thus it is that these various networks 
lave grown up largely on the basis of economic characteristics such as effecting an 
3conomic balance between steam fjid hydro, taking advantage of diversified peaks, de- 
ireloping steam capacity at points advantageous from fuel and water stfjidpoints and 
improving reliability for service to concentrated load centers, 

"There ha-s been a tendency, well-justified economically, to make each locality 
nore and more self-sufficient as regards its own po¥/er supply to the end that, instead 
of concentrating capacity at a few points, the general level of available povrer in 
each locality has been raised." 

The enormous building program of utilities will tc^ke care of weak links, giving 
sufficient capacity where any demand may come up, he said. 

"Defense plants c:in be assured of access to cunple power facilities vdth a min- 
imum of system construction. Of course, it is practically Impossible to detemiine in 
advance just what defense loads will require in the v/ay of additional peak capacity. 

"It is fairly easy to estimate hovj much additional peak ie involved by an in- 
crease in steel productive capacity, by an increase in electric furnace load, by 
doubling or tripling the aluminum capacity and quadrupling airplane production. It 
is almost impossible to estimate either the increase in load in smaller plants which 
accept sub-contracts for parts and supplies or the total diversified peak demand as 
a result of this coordinated defense production program." 

Sabotage may be in the offing in a time of peak defense production. Major Leihy 
warned. 

■ "Should hostilities develop, there may be expected man-made troubles in the form 
of sabotage to which certain portions of the electric system are particularly vulner- 
eible. What information as is available on European combat indicates that sabotage is 
to be more dreaded than bombing.

"Power stations c/.n be effectively fenced and guarded, as can be the larger sub- 
stations. Un£:ttended substations, transmission lines, ma.in distribution stations, 
underground systems cannot be protected as effectively without prohibitive costs, and 
future operations under such conditions may v/ell take into consideration measures 
ii/hich will ameliorate difficulties developing from hostile acts aga,inst the nation's 
povifer supply. 

"Some measures necessarily take the form of limiting the area of trouble. 
Patrol crews offer considerable possibilities and should be given attention by both 
the operators rind the regulatory agencies which allocate frequencies for emergency 
services of this type."

FROMs ALEXMDER SCHREIBER RE: HORROR TESTS BY DR. DAVID P. BODER AT 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF ROOSEVELT THEATER; TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 

TECHNOLOGY-VIC. 46OO MIDNIGHT. 

FOR RELEASE; TUESDAY, /J^RIL 8, 1941. 

Last night, v^hile the city slept, forty adventuresome students and a fact-find- 
ing, horror-probing scientist of Illinois Institute of Technologj'- indulged in an orgy 
of graveyard gambols, murderous mysteries and spine-shocking sensations. And all in 
the interest of science. 

Doctor David P. Boder, professor of pEycholog;^' at Levd-S division of the Insti- 
tute, his fingers at the controls of complicated testing apparatus and devices, sat 
v/ith his students in the balcony of the Roosevelt Theater during almost two-hours of 
unremitting analysis of cinema horror in the raw. 

Tv;o moving pictures were shoT/m. One, "The Mad Doctor," featuring Bf.sil Rathbone 
and Ellen Drev/, had a fictional background. The second, "Third Dimensional Murder," 
was an unvarnished shocker from real life with anonymous characters. 

Reactions of two students, who were harnessed to horror-recording equipment, 
were closely studied by Dr. Boder during shovdng of the films. He will examine their 
classmates at school today, as a secondary step in his investigation. 

Viforking for many years on a study of horror and its psychological effects, 
Dr. Boder believes he vdll some day be able to establish what facts influence memory 
as a contribution to legal research bearing directly upon reliability of witnesses. 
Horror as an element entering into the mental condition of spectators to crimes of 
violence has never adequately been probed, he believes.

Knowledge of mental reactions to horror pictures, with reactions divided into 
understanding of the gravity of a situation in 'flhich a given character finds himself 
as one factor and the actual gruesomeness of that situation as another, is of para- 
moiint importance to his researches. Dr. Bodor stated. 

Human guinea-pigs for last night's experiments under recording devices were 
Alda Kairis, senior at Lewis division of the Institute, and Edv;ard Collender, junior 
chemical engineer of Armour division. 

Miss Kairis, a pretty brunette, sat imi.'.obile in her seat with a pneuraograph 
strapped to her chest. It measured the rate and depth of her breathing, A blood . 
pressure device strapped to one leg measured the rise and fall of presstire. 

Dr. Boder, with an instrument called the "Maico affectometer," tested her emo- 
tional stress crises. The affectometer indicates stress through measurement of elec- 
trical skin resistance. 

Collender, in addition to undergoing tests Miss Kairis was subjected to, had 
attached to him a recording cardio tachometer, which gave a continuous record of heart- 
beat and emotional intensity. 

As an epilogue to the film display. Dr. Boder this afternoon vdll examine each 
member of his class as to memory of specific events shovm in the films. Each dealii 
shovffi in the pictures, with attendant details and individual backgrounds, v.'ill be ana- 
lysed by students. 

Ability to retain facts, relating them to the main themes depicted by the films, 
is likely to reveal m.uch of genuine scientific benefit which his training as a 
psychologist will help him to interpret. Dr. Bodor explained.

The cooperative course aliors each student alternately to spend eight weeks at 
school .and the same time at v/ork for forty-eight vreeks of the year. Money earned in 
industry is more than sufficient to allov: the student to meet his tuition and inci- 
dental expenses.

This week vdll find all branches of Illinois Tech's spring athletic program in 

full svdng, the golf team excepted. Highlights include the baseball squad opening its 

Northern Illinois College Conference schedule against Elmhurst College, trackmen gettin 

off to a running start in the outdoor season with a triangular meet scheduled against 

North Park and Morton colleges, and the ijjidefeated tennis team seeking its third vdn 

in its first tilt v;ith Loyola. 

Though pitching admirably, Alex Yursis dropped the initial game of the season for 

the Techawks diamondmen when his teammates gave him but one supporting hit and made 

five errors against Lake forest College last V/ednesday. The facts that Tech indoor 

practice vvas confined to a sixty-foot-square gymasium and bad y/eather banned outdoor 

workouts handicapping the Scarlet and Grey. Under a new coach, Bernard "Sonny" V/eisman 

and newly returned to a league, the Northern Illinois College Conference, the Engineers 

expect to keep above the .500 mark this year. Games scheduled for this week include 

the league opener against Elmhurst, V/ednesday, April 16, on Ogden field (33rd and 

federal Streets), and a road trip to the Vfolverine State, where Lawrence Tech on friday 

April 18, and Michigan State Normal College the following day will be net. 

Led by Captain Harry Heidenreich, the Illinois Tech trackmen take on North Park 

College and Morton Junior College as a warm-up for the outdoor season Saturday. VJith 

the advent of spring, Captain Heidenreich has begun to show versatility, specializing 

in the javelin and discus throws, as well as offering stiff competition in the pole 

vault, high jump and shot put. He can also run the half-mile and the mile in a pinch. 

Having bettered the existing school record several times in practice, Harry is expected

?ROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIBER RE: ELECTION Of ALFRED KAUFMaNN, PRES. 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF LINK BELT COMPANY, TO BOARD OF 

TECHNOLOGY-VIC. 4600 TRUSTEES. 

FOR IMEDIATE RELEASE 

illfred KcuUffraann, President of Link Belt Company and one of Chicago's leading 
industrialists was elected to the Board of Trustees of Illinois Institute of Technology- 
today, April 14.5 1941. 

Announcement of the election v/as made by James D. Cunningham, Chairman of the 
[nstitute's Board and President of Repv lie Flov/ Meters Company just after today's 
Luncheon meeting at which the election took place. The meeting was held at 12;15 P.M. 
in the Chicago Club, Van Buren Street at Michigan Avenue o 

According to the anno-oncement made by Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Kauffmann was born in 
Sermany in 1897 t'Jid received his major education at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New 
fork where he had conferred upon him the Mechanical Engineering Degree in 1901, 

Alfred Kauffmann is in the true sense, a man of the v;orklng people. He began his 
career as an apprentice for the General Electric Company in Schenectady, Nev; York in 
1894 and joined the staff of the Robert Hoe Company, manufacturers of printing presses 
in 1895, remaining with that company until coming to Link-Belt in *98. 

His period of employment with the Link-Belt Company reads something like the 
"Odyssey of American Businessmen" - "From Office Boy to President" of which this free 
leountry is so proud. When he joined the Link-Belt Company, he took a position as 
draftsman and graduated successively to positions of superintendent of construction, 
sales engineer, assistant to the president, manager of the Philidelphia plant, vice- 
president in charge of Beljnont ixnd Dodge plants, and finally President, a position to 
which he was elected in 1924 after 26 years of effort.

RE: FUI^D RAISING PRCGRAil^ TRUSTEES ^lEETING 

FOR imiEDIATE RELEASE 



An immediate appeal for fimds to finaiice the first phase of a $12,000,000 devel- 
jpraent program for Illinois Institute of Technology was authorized by the Tmstees of 
hat institution at their annual meeting held in the Chicago Club at noon today, Mon- 
lay, April U, 19A1. 

The 194.1 phase of the prograja aims to secure $1,500,000 to erect and equip a 
letallurgical Engineering building, a Meclianical Engineering building, and Library and 
lumanities buildings, while at the same time assuring the addition of at least $150,000 
bo existing income resources, it was announced by James D. Cunningham, chairman of the 
3oard of the Institute and president of Republic Flow Meters Company. 

Action of the board at this time constituted formal approval of plans evolved by 
that body's policy committee, consisting of Uilfred Sykes, assistant to the president. 
Inland Steel Company, chairman^ James D, Cunningharaj Charles S. Davis, president, Borg- 
Pfarner Corporationi Henry T. Heald, president, Illinois Institute of Technologyi Syd- 
ney G. McAllister, president, International Harvester Company; and Charles E. Nolte, 
president. Crane Company. 

Illinois Institute of Technology, which v/as created last summer by the merger of 
Armour Institute of Techjiology and Lev/is Institute, now enrolls more engineering stu- 
ients than does any other college in this country. In addition, the institution is 
undertaking the major responsibility for cooperation v/ith the government in its pro- 
gram of engineering defense training in this region. In January it enrolled 1,600 men, 
most of them engineering graduates, in special engineering courses connected with the 
defense prograjn; and 1,5*3 have been added to that total this month. The total stu- 
dent enrollment at the Institute, including the arts and sciences and evening classes, 
approximates 7,000 this year.

The development program aims to consolid-te all day-student activities of the 
rraour- and Lewis divisions of the Institute upon a single campus at the earliest pos- 
ible date. Land adequate to provide, for such consolidation has alreadj?- been purchased 
djacent to the existing Armour campus on the south side. Six blocks of land, extend- 
ng from 32nd to 34-th Streets and from State Street to the Rock Island Railroad tracks 
ave been acquired for this purpose. 

The complete program of development is progressive, covering the next several 
ears, ¥jc. Cunninghsjn explained today. It involves the financing of building construc- 
tion and equipment totalling some $3^000,000 and the addition of $2755 000 to annual in- 
:ome other than that anticipated from tuition, fees and existing endovraient. In addi- 
ion to the buildings scheduled for the 194-1 phase of the program, the following are 
Jontemplateds a Civil Engineering and Ifetorials Laboratory, a Chemical Engineering and 
iheraistry building, an Electrical Engineering and Physics building, a Student Union, a 
hysical Education building and a Power Plant. 

Development program offices have been opened at 79 West Monroe street, and or- 
ganization of volunteer personnel to prosecute the appeal for funds will get under way 
Immediately, rvlr. Cunningham revealed. 

At the same time Mr. Cunningham announced the election of A.lfred Kauffraa.nn, 
president of Link Belt Company and one of Chicago's leading industrialists, to the 
Board of Trustees. 

■■ Mr. Kauffmann was born in Germanj^ in 1879 and received major education at Pratt

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF MONDAY, .^RIL U, 19/+1 - 6:00 P„M. 

TECm-IOLOGY - VIC. A600 

RELEASE: FOR TUESDAY, ^/l5Al 

The training of men in engineering and technical skills is the li.fe-blood of 
usiness and industry today, according to F'?ilfred Sykes, assistant to the President of 
land Steel Company, Chicago. 

Mr. Sykes was one of three prominent Chicagoans ~;ho addressed industrialists, 
xecutives and engineers gathered in the Sherman Hotel last night, Monday, April 1/+, 
94-1, for a NATIONAL DEFENSE DINNER sponsored jointly by the u'estern Society of Ehgi- 
eers, the Chicago section of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engi- 
eers, and the Chicago section of the Association of Iron and Steel Engineers. Other 
peakers included K. T. Heald, President of Illinois Institute of Technology', and E. 
), Martin, assistant chief metallurgist of Inland Steel. 

"The training of our technical men," according to Kr. Sykes, "should be considerec 
IS a business investment ... a very necessary expenditure. A trained roan is certain- 
ly more important than a ne;? machine in our plant, r/iachines can be created by our 
trained men and only by them, but they become obsolete, ^A'hereas our engineers continue 
bheir creative abilities to keep pace with our increasing requirements. 

"Oar plants may be destroyed," he emphasized, "either by fire or by some cataclysi; 
but as long as ;':e retain our organizations those plants can be rebuilt and continue to 
function. But if vre lose our organisations, or they become inadequate, then our ma- 
chinery, no matter hoi" good, will be of little use to us and our enterprises vdll die." 

Sykes pointed out that the new man or recently graduated engineer must be con- 
sidered as much a piece of rav/ material as the bar of steel entering the machine vShop 
for tixrning into a crankshaft. Pointing out that Chicagois rapidly becoming the indus- 
trial heart of the United States, he listed six points substantiating his belief that 
□hicago can and is in the process of providing industry -vvith the young recruits it 
aeeds to man its industrial and defense progrsjn. These points are:

1. The demand for trained engineers vidthin the co-ontry varies by areas with 
the extent to \?hich the working population is engaged in the manufactiir- 
ing, communication, and transportation industries. 

2. Over 255^ of all those engaged in tnese industries v;ere located in the 
east north centi^al district, of vhich Chicago is the hub. 

3. The Chicago area is t>ie second largest concentration of Industries in 
the United States, 

/+. There are approximately twice as many individus.ls engaged in m.anufactur- 
ing, communication, and transportation industries in Chicago as there 
are similarly employed in any city in the comitry except Nevj York. 

5. Approximately 20,000 engineers are employed in the Chicago area. 

6. The number of engineers employed per v;orker in Chicago has increased 
more rapidly than in any other city in the United States. 

"It is rather startling that in viev; of these facts the number of men technically 
rained yearly in Qiicago is only a small fraction of the natural absorption capacity 
f this area. In the past v-ie have depended upon other areas to supply our engineers, 
ut the possibility of successfully continuing this course in the future, I think, is 
ather remote. As a result, of increasing technical development throughout the country, 
he large manufacturing concerns are making more intensive dri-/es to obtain the pick of 
)ur technical schools, vith the consequence that those who come to our doors seeking 
3mployment are the ones that have been passed up by the larger companies. This is an 
intolerable condition and the only ansvrer is for us to develop our o-'m technologists, 
frho will naturally remain in this territory if opportunity offers," 

I.Tr. ^.rkes' address came upon the heels of an announcement yesterday, April 14- th, 
by Illinois Institute of Teclinology Board of Trustees outlining an "immediate appeal 
for funds to finance the first phase of a 012,000,000 development progi-am."

The 194-1 phase of the program aims to secure $1,500,000 to erect £i,nd eqjiip a Me- 
talliirgical Engineering building, a Mechanical Engineering buildingj and Library and 
Humanities building, vfhile at the same time assuring the addition of at least ."p.SOjOOO 
to existing income resources. (The fund raising program v/as announced by James D. Cun- 
ningham, chairman of the Institute's board and president, Republic Flov; Meters Company) 

The development progre.m of Illinois Tech will to some extent, according to Ivlr. 
Sykes who is chairman of the Board's policy committee on development, relievo the dan- 
gerous shortage of trained engineers in this area. The program, he stated, aims to 
consolidate all day-student activities of the Armour and Leriis canipus upon a single 
campus o.t the earliest possible date. Land adequate to pi-ovide such consolidation has 
already been purchased in the vicinity ox the old Armour Institute of Technology cam- 
pus, 33rd and Federal Street. 

"It is characteristic," he continued, "of most of our business enterprises, es- 
pecially those of a ma,nufacturing nature, that they have been developed from sm.all be- 
ginnings by men who had ability but little in the way of financial resources. As 
these businesses developed, changing conditions, new methods of manufacture, and in- 
creasing competition have required more intense technica.l development, and each year 
the necessity for such development becomes more evident. Those enterprises v/hich have 
retained their virility are the ones which have recognized the increasing need for 
technological development. The tempo will prombly increase in the future. 

"There is no doubt that we need to develop m.ore techjiically trained people in thit 
area if we are to maintain the position which we now hold as a manufacturing center, 
and, therefore, I feel that our training facilities are essentially a matter that con- 
cerns the men directing our indtistries. 

"I do not believe that we can, or should, depend upon large individual benefactior 
to do the job for us. I think v/e must all put our shoulders to the ?/heel and realize 
that it is our job to support the institution which supplies the trained men we need". 



In closing, Mr. Sykes explained that the complete program of development of Illi- 
is Tech to meet the needs of industry is progressive in nature.. It involves financ- 
,ng of building construction and equipment totalling some 03, 000,000 and the addition 
f 0275>OOO to annual operating income. In addition to buildings scheduled for the 
3LX phase of the progi-am, a chemical engineeringj civil engineering and materials 
,esting laboratory building are contemplated as well as buildings for chemical engineer- 
ng and physics, student union, plysical education, and pov;er plant.

Df Germany, are among them, and China and Palestine as vrell. Each of these, vvith the 
xception of France which has graduates of tv-o schools enrolled, is represented by one 
nrollee= Employes of American firms comprise this foreign-trained groups 

C2.nadian institutions sent three graduates into Institute ranks. The total for 
i^'ht foreign nations and Canada is twelve students. 

l?ith the total graduate enrollment at 4-5'- 5 "the number of ,f.:raduates from American 
institutions is 4-26, since fourteen persons adiiiitted to graduate study are auditors or 
students nho attend clasj.es v/ithout intention of taking credits or a degree. In each 
case they are not holders of under gradiiate degrees. 

The 4-26 students from schools in thirbj^-f ive states scattered through the nation 
broadly illustrate the centralizing attraction of the Institute as a mecca of graduate 
study, according to tne bulletin. 

Ninety-nine institutions, eighty-seven of them in the United States, have sent 
graduates to the Institute. Every iriajor engineering or technical school in /jnerica 
is among them. 

Seventy per cent of the graduate students come from schools other than the under- 
^'raduate engineering division of the Institute; Armour College of Engineering. This 
is regarded as an unusual development since un'.'.ergraduate technical schools are ordin- 
arily majority feeders of their graduate departments. 

One hundred and forty-one Ai-rao-i.r College of Engineering alumni h^ve continued 
work at their alma mater, the bulletin deraoi:stratc;s. This is the largest group 01 
enrollees from any undergraduate scarce. 

The Univei'sity of Illinois ranks second in this respect v.ith fifty-tv.o graduates. 
Purdue University, v;ith a bloc of tvfenty-four, ranks tnii-d, and Leivis Institute, since 
last July consolidated with Armour Institute to form Illinois Institute of Technology, 
ranks fourth vrith tv.'enty- tv.o graduates. 

In respective order, the next dozen schools represented are Central Y.iv'i.C.A. 
College, University of Chicago, Northwestern University, lovra State Coxlege, 



fessachusetts Institute of Teclmology, University of Michigsji, University of California ^ 
South Dakota State School of Mines, Cornell UnivervSity, University of Wisconsin j 
ii.ichigan Stats College , and Carnegie Institute. 

I'^^nile preference of f^raduate studentr; as a. whole for certain fields of study 
varies from semester to semester, either civil or chemical engineering are most popu- 
lar among those working for master's degrees. A general naster of science degree, 
followed closely by that in electrical engineering, is ne::t in demand. 

Oi'ganized formally under the adn^inistration of a dean in 1937, the Institute's 
graduate school shows an enrollment gain of more thi^n 3C0 per cent in four years, a 
record among engineering graduate schools, it is believed. 

Day and night sessions are part of the graduate school pi'ogr-am, with work for a 
doctorg.te ordinarily taking place in the daytime, klaster's degrees, hov/ever, are 
worked for during day and evening sdiool periods. 

Further development of the gra.auats school ?u.ll be greatly accelerated by the im- 
pending construction of the projected "Teclmology Center" campus of the Listitute on 
the site of the present Arncur College of i^igineering, Dr.. Grinter believes. 

Included in objectives of the 19^41 phase ox' this ."12,000,000 development program, 
vAich aims to secure at least <;lj500;000 drawing the current yoar, are intensification 
01 graduate a,ctivities, with the addition of working Laboratory and classroom space. 

At present, master of science degrees in chemical-, civil, electrical and mechan- 
ical engineering are offered, with sp-ecial provision made in science aad fire protectior 
engineering. Major work for an undesignated science degree j.iay be done in chemistry, 
mathematics, mechanics, physics and m.etallurgy.

he former outstanding of the 1940 squad veterans. Last year's tea.m vron seven and lost 
hree matches and, despite the loss of 194-0 captain Harry Schuial oj graduation, v:ill 
resent a strong front against most of the Techav/k's traditional opponents. 

Winners of minor letters last season, Bredlau and Korrell will have help from 
wo other minor-letter winners of 194-0. They are Harry Sieg and Adam Jemsek. A "B" 
eaiii, composed of Dick Taylor, Bob Sundstrom, Halter Rusanowski and Joe Prasinski, will 
leet three opponents during the season, while the "A" group takes on eleven. 

The golf schedule for the "A" team includes the following matches;

RELSASE FOR. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23, 1941. 

On Pednesday, A.pril 23rd3 the Illinoi-S Tech basoball team v"Lll f's,ce their first 
opponent in the Northern lilinois Collegiate Piiseball Conierence. 

North Centra.! College of NaperviD.le will be the opponent on tiie Techawks home 
grouiids, Cgder. Field, starting at 3;;3C P.M. The Tennis Team meets the University of 
Chicago on the Varsity Coui'ty of the !.!aroon Campus the same day. 

Thus far this season rain has dogt^ed the basocallers every footstep and poor 
weather has caused cancellation of one game and postponeiricnt of another of their first 
four scheduled contests. Coach Sonny V/eisman, took his nev.' team to Lake Forest for 
tlie first tilt of the year and though senior Alexander Yursis had n.o earned runs to 
his credit, his teamir.ates gave him but one hit and committed several errors to yield 
the final score of 4 - in favor of Lake Forest. 

On the road trip to Michigan the story v/as much the sarae r/ith a definite improve- 
ment noted however. Against Michigan L'ormal in Y"pailai'tl the Techaivks garnered six 
hits v;hile losng 9-3. High spot^ of the game included a ninth inning home nin over 
the center field fence by pinch batter Al Dambros, sophomore hurler vho is slated to 
start the North Central Assifr.nm.ent , 

The Road trip, vaiile not successful from the point of games "i-'on (none) or games 
plaj^ed (one of two scheduled), v.'as valuable in ligh.t of the fact that Coach "Scmiy" 
TJeisraan found a smooth working infield combination. The newest additions to the in- 
fielding personnel include sophomore Raj'' jjaGodney and senior Frank Pf offer. 

La.G-ociney, 6 '4" star center of the basketball tesm, has used his hei,ght quite 
effectively in snaring poor th.rowrs to the initirl sack and his po'.-erful fram.e renders 
him a potent hitter. Pfeffer, a converted outfielder, shows remarkable ability in 
covering the shortstop position and has an uncanny eye •"hile at the plate, a virtue

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF NOLOGY STUDENTS, /uRJ/iOUE GGLLSGS 

TEGI-mOLOGY-VIC. 46OO DIVISIGM, APPROVE LOWERING DRAFT 

ACGEPTi'iiJCE AGE. 

FOR RELEASE. SUNDAY, APRIL 27, 1941. 

k cross-sectiou of opinion o f Illinois Institute ox Technology students of 
Armour College division favors lov.'ering draftee acceptanr.e age to eighteen years. 

This result of a "Galloping Poll" 3 conducted by TECI-&'OL,OGY NE^'S, undergraduate 
weekly, on burning issues of ilrrierican life, '-/as reported in the current issue on the 
basis of questioning of 110 niale students irom all sections of the campus. 

Exemption of engineers from the draft, and the advisability of high school grad- 
uates volunteering to serve their term of one-year militu.ry service before entering 
college, v;ere also heavily approved. 

Discussion by Gongres,^; of lov;ering of the age limit for the nation's az^ny en- 
rollet-s and the dcfez-ment of college students from the armed services brought about 
taking of the poll, Thomas E. Brovm, electrical engineering junior and editor of the 

per, said a complete explanation of each querjtlon vjas given prospective voters and 
that utmost accuracy v.-ss sought in obtaining replies. 

To the question "Do you approve the nev; registrL.ti.on idea for men 18 to 21 years 
of age?", 68,2 per cent of the voters ansvered "yes". Many admitted they were pre- 
judiced because they rrould not be taken by this nev age limit. 

Others believed draftees younger than twenty-one r/ould be too young for the sol- 
diering demande-d by the training program. A general opinion was that the present 
selective service lavr brought the best material of Auerican raanhooa to be utilij^ed 
and, as such, was a challenge to any other nation in the world. 

To the qu.estion "Shou.ld engineers be e.;:empted from the draft?", 88,3 percent 
voted "yes." Ma.nj'- stated they vjere prejudiced by the fact they 'vere engineering stu- 
dents bat a majority felt that engineers Vv'ere sorel;- needed by the United States in 
capacities other than under arms or in the services. 



-2- 

Several cited the fact 50,000 engineers v/ill be in demand by industry during the 
oming suiTimer and onlj^ 12,000 are graduating from engineering schools of the nation in 
^ane. Most of the students voting against exemption s'J-d engineers should not be pri- 
ileged -vhen other professional men were accepting armv duty. 

To the question "^Jould you advise the graduating seniors of high school to volun- 
eer and serve their year before entering college?", 88.6 voted "yos". Coiiiplications 
n the life of a young man would be best avoided by this step, jii?Lny voters believed, 
jpecialized training, college study, position in the business v/orld and marriage ''jere 
.isted as complicating circumstances. 

Some voters declared high school seniors would be benefitted by cairying on a.s 
isual since many factors might interfere viith induction and that even a semester spent 
t college r,'as so much credit gained tov;ard eventual graduation.

?Jednesdaj'-, JMy 23, ^ame viith North Centra], unicno'-^i at this va-iting, of its four sche- 
duled games has lost t'-vo and has had t'. o TveaLher postponements. In addition to the 
bad-Vv-eather break against LavTrence Tech. last vSunday, a tilt with Elahurst College had 
to be postponed lavSt week because of rain. 

Thus with the season in its third "eek Coach T'eisSjaan has little evidence on 
which to base a judgment of hj s team. Scarcely three da./s of practice ^^ere permitted 
by vreather before the opening game on April ?, and with long periods of layoff occas- 
ioned b\- game and practice postponements, the team's natural hitters, ■•ith solid record 
behind thein last sCt'ison, have had thi ;j year little chance to get their stance. 

Techarai runs against Michigan Normal ',v8ro scored Dy pinch-hitter Al Dambros, v.iio 
hit a homer rith tr;o men on base. Dambros -'-ill likely be starting pitcher against 
Concordia tomorrorr. He is a southpa-iv, whose hitting is good enough to recommend his 
being turned into an outfielder. Hcvever, vvith only one dependable right-hc-nd pitcher 
available. Coach ^"eissman is reluctant to make this change.

aptain , vdll undoubtedly be close to the top of the points colurai in high .junip;, pole

George Matthev'S, George Erkert and Osborne^ together v-ith VfejTie McCullough, a re- 
lay team veteran, have been h:.rnessed for vihatever relay distance will be run tomorrow 
and should turn in a snappy pet-f oriaance , 

Coach Hal Davey' s tennis squad, smarting under its first defeat of the season by 
Chicago Teachers College last vfeek, will be loaded for bear in taking on Lake Forest 
College tc-ncrrov.' . The Techarks first three meets ; vion v>"ith ease against good combina- 
tions, gave them an attitude of team carelessness against the Teachers, Individual 
players wlio had performed desultcrily in their singles matches came back '.•ith vigor to 
sweep the doubles sets the^'' played. The fi.nal 4--3 score of the Teachers game is a sore 
spot that only a heavily victorious performance nt Lake Forest is likely' to eras^.

One of the most interestj.ng e>±ibits on the Levels campus I'/ill be that in biology 
lerein inter-relations betv/een enir.als and plants as denonstrated oy parasitism and 
Tmbicsis will be on display. 

Featured as the outstanding ejdiibit will be that presented by Dr. David P. Boder,

On the Armour College of Engineering campus during Tuesday and Ved.nesaccf vrill be 
ound the basic studies in engineering and sciences, including architecture. These 
andamental studies will be correlated to the present national defense effort and illus- 
rate some cf 'he "extra-scientific" effort in vhich students engage. 

In organic chemistry a g-coup of experiments \ill ilJ.uotrate hoiv rayon and plastics

Competing foi" hilarity honors this Junior Week rill be a troupe of singers, dancers 
and hot-cha artistes from Lewis division cam.pus. At least t^'o nights, Ttaesday and 
PJedneaday at 8:30 p.Tn., they 7/111 take over the stage of the Student Union auditorium 
and define extracurricular aspects of "coeducational," a term thii.t has been associated 
in a minor r/ay with the Institute for many years trat v/hich, vfith the coming of several 
hundred coeds of Lewis campus to the student body, lias brought a tidal vrave of color to 
the Institute . 

Sorority sisters will step thorough lively numbers v.'ritten hj/ undergraduate talent, 
clad in a sunlxirst of lovely costumes designed and executed by coeds themselves. A 
piano-sitting sophomore coed, vdth an opera-length personality, vdll be accompanied by 

chorus of jive voices, through a gridiron-dinner-type m.U£i/>al satire on the school 
and its personalities. 

A skit coiimiemorating the merger of Armour and Leivis Institutes, in the form of a 
mock marriage, 'lill highlight this musicaS. re'/uie. Men of Lev:is campus, clad in iron 
derby and checkerod-trouser ensem.bles, and adorned with handlebar mustaches, T;ill sing

hardly as elaborate as the smart Junior Informal P'riday nJ.ght at the SoutiimLOor Country 

Egg

TECffiJOLOGY-VIC. ^600 ENGINEERING DIVISION OF ILLINOIS 

INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, SATURDAY, 
5/3/41 

Chicago, April 00, 194-1 — (Special) — The cream of the scholastic high school crop 

of the i/Iiddlewest, East and Far West will compete Saturday, May 3, for eighteen 

scholarships offered to male students ty Armour College of Engineering of Illinois In- 

« 
stitute of Teclinology. 

More than 250 seniors are expected to take examinations in mathematics, chemis- 
try and physics, personal interviews already having established their fitness for 
examination. A majority 7J-ill take tacts at Armour campus of the Institute but those 
living in districts removed from Chicr/ro 7.-ill be examined in their home schools by 
principals or persons aiithorized by the Institute to conduct the examinations. 

Scholarships consist of ten one-year tuition ($300) a?;ards and eight four -year 
tuition avi'ards in fire protection engineering, each valued at $1,200. Considerations 
of the candidate's personality, high school scholastic record, extra-curricular acti- 
vities and general fitness helped to detarmine his right to examination. 

Written examinations v;ill total thr-ee hours. That in mathematics will be prim- 
arily in algebra, T.'ith some questions in plane and solid geometry as a possibility. 

The examinations in physics and chemistry v;ill be of the objective type, but 
will include an essay on an assigned topic and vill be based upon textbooks currently 
in use in secondary schools. Tliere will be no separate ViTitten examination in English. 
The candidate's ability in English exprension \"ill be determined from the personal 
interviev/ and from the short essay prepared in connection '/ith the rrritten physics 
and chemistry examination.

RELEASE FOR: THURSDAY, 5/l/^l 

Beginning Thursday, May \, the Illinois Tech Baseball Team 7vill entertain tliree 
foes in three successive dcys v/hile the Track Team leaves Friday for the Beloit Relays 
to be held on Friday evening and a dual meet rith Bradley Tech on Saturda;/ afternoon. 

To date the baseballers have dropped three games while winning one and their 
league standing is vron one and lost one. Thursday is to be a non-league exiiibition 
against Chicago Teachers College while Friday's contest v/ith Elmhurst and Saturday's 
encounter v;ith V^e..-:.ton College are leagvie games. 

To take the place ox senior Y,'illi3.m Grosse, Tech's star third baseman who broke 
his leg while chasing a foul in the North Central battle, Coach "Sonny" Weissman is 
converting sophomore pitcher i;iario Silla, Silla is very fast in the field and on the 
bases and his throws to first still retain the pitchers accuracy. General observations 
predict that Silla will be no slouch with the stick and he is already the best bunter 
on the squad. 

Other revamping in the Techa-.-V. infield places senior outfielder Frank Pfeffer at 
shortstop £.nd the replacing of Mike Carrier by flay LaGodaiey, sophomore 6 '4-" star 
center of the basketball team, on the initial sack. Junior Rodger "Red" I.Iueller, 
veteran of three seasons is the only man to retain his position. 

Alexander Yursis, as usual is the mainstay of the Techawk pitching staff but 
this year he has a most able understudy in sophomore Al Dam.bros. The two vdll divide 
the pitching assignments for the remainder of the season. 

The trackmen will converge en masse upon the Beloit Relays but will concentrate 
on one particular event, the freshman sprint medley relay. Bob Osborne will start the 
ball rolling v.-ith a 52 second quarter followed by tv'o 25 second 220 's which will be

run by ths two freshmen to survive Wednesday's trials (Coach Root has four or five 
freshmen capable of so doing) . George Erkert •■-ill anchor vrlth a 2 minute and 5 second 
half mile and Tech's time is expected to be a full second under last years v:inning time 
in thiG event. 

In the individual events Captain Harry Heidenreich will strive to perfect his 
footwork v/hich vvill enable him to get off a virinning toss in the javelin tiirowj v'hile 
cooperative student Wayne McCullough attempts a victorious mile. VMth McCullough the 
policy is double or nothing. Ths.t iSj ragaixiless of the field, he will stay with the 
leader until he crosses the tape or drops from exitiaustion. 

A nev/comer in the field events is John Ti^egay. His best efforts so far include 
a 39 foot 6 inch shot put and a 115 foot discus thro?;. He is improving rapidly from 
day to day and better performances would not be surprising. 

Following the Relays the Techav;ks travel to Peoria for their scheduled dual meet 
V7ith Bradley Tech on Saturday. The Braves are traditionally strong in the field events 
and have an exceptionally fine hurdler. The net result is that Illinois Tech will 
either lose by 20 points or win by five points depending entirely upon the breaks of 
the day and the condition of the squad.

A ceaseless flov; of visitors will crov/d stairways and jar.i elevators of Lewis 
Institute Campus of Illinois Institute of Technology tomorrow (ivlonday. May 5) v?hen 
the forty-six-year-old home of learning at 1951 Vv\ Madison Street holds a one-day 
"Open House" to begin Junior Week at Illinois Tech, 

Students, faculty, alumni and friends, cooperating with their counterparts at 
Armour campus, will transfer attentions to the Armour campiiS after Monday's observance 
which begins at ]. p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. Open House begins Tuesday and extends 
through Wednesday at Armour, locs.ted at 33rd and Federal Streets where it has been a 
tradition for thirty-six years. Junior Week itself begins toraorrovf and ends Saturday. 

Tomorrov;'s program at Le-f'is Institute will be pitched to scientific, technologi- 
cal and liberal arts displays of a popular nature. Faculty members and student 
assistants from chemistry, physics, applied art, psychology, biology, English, social 
sciences, home economics and cooperative business administration departments will pre- 
sent these displciys. 

Though its Open House phase is of scholarlj^ character and of quasi-educational 
interest, Illinois Tech's Junior YTeek program for Thursday and Friday is dominated by 
lighter undergraduate interests. Dances, athletic contests, a class rush, musical 
events and various rough-housing outlets of campus enthusiasm v.dll take place . 

Among Lewis Open Hoiise exhibits will be the widely-known Psychological K'luseum 
originated by Dr. David P. Boder, professor • of psychology. His recent experiment in 
a Loop theater demonstrating effects of horror movies on undergraduate subjects 
brought him to attention of the press. 



-2- 

The Museum is equipped to test for fatigue syiy.ptons in E-nimals and human beings 
md to promote experiments in the psychology of industrial occuiisations. Lie detection 
md the reactions of manj' human organisms under psychological stresses will be measured 
by Dr. Boder v/ith m.embers of his audiences as subjects. 

The testing of individual differences and the emotional reactions to music v/ill 
llso be on exhibition. Dr. Boder 's virtually unique explanatory lecture on backgrounds 
of mother-in-law phobia.s ^vill be included in his programs. 

Physical chemistry in the study of gaseous, solid and liquid states will be on 
parade in the laboratories of Dr, Lee F. &apple and his assistants. The role of energy' 
in chemical reactions will be one important sector of investigtations conducted before 
visitors. 

Modern analytical procedures, such as the tensile strength and yarn counts of 
dress materials, the identification of natural and synthetic fibres, the chemistry of 
processing, scouring and bleaching of vrools and cottons, and a thorough-going analysis 
of s^Tithetic materials such as rayon, lanital and nylon v/ill be am.ong subjects 
developed . 

Students interested in cheraisti^^, under the auspices of the Lewis Chemical Society, 
v/ill act as laboratory specimens for purposes of chemical experiments with biological 
overtones. 

A veriety of plastic adaptations to evei-yday life will be shoi".'n and their compo- 
sition explained. The field of plastics as a factor in industrial and commiercial 
markets will be surveyed. Housewive's dependence for kitchonw8.re and pantry knick- 
knacks on the field of plastics and the chemiea.l factors entering into the use of 
these materials will likewise be analyzed. 

A biology department display will interpret the story of human life from the par- 
allel of chicken emteyology. Various other animal embryo forms, especially concerned 
Vfith displaying facial developments at various stages, xvill be used.

Bactoriology, zoology, comparative anatomy^ physiology, parasitologj- and micro- 
technique will have their place in the display. Unsterilized bacteria foi^raatione', con- 
taining life that ha.s developed from pre-existing life, v.'ill be analyzed. Malarial 
organisms in the human red blood cells, originated by mosquitoes, v/ill be explained. 

Perhaps of most popular interest of the entire Open House e>±ibits vjll be a 
sTOi'king model of Old Faithful, widely-knovm geyser of Yellorstone National Park. Dubbe; 
"New Faithless" by Dr. M. Alden Countryiuan, professor of physios, who built it, it 
erupts every ten minutes :ji a spectacixlar fount of boiling '.:atcr and steam.. 

Dr. Countryman's assiste.nts will be in charge; of some thirtj'- other exiiioits, 
mong them an electro-static smoke precipitator, used in saving coal elements that 
usually drift ai,?'?y in exliaust smoke, ^nite light and its ramifications in the spec- 
trum will be enlarged on. 

Textures and contours of the human voice, measured by use of Cl fluorescent light 
against a white background, vnlJ. be a ph.^Asics departm.ent piece de resistance . V'ould-be 
operatic singers will get their chance to find out xfhat their voices look like, scienti- 
fically, by me£ins of the cathode-ray oscilloscope, .-.s the measuring instrument is callec 

Coeds in the classes of Mai'ie Elsa. Blanke, assistant professor of aPplisi^ art, 
will be living models for her lecture, repeated several times during the daj^, on the 
"Do's and Don'ts of Design." The proper outfitting of a house from the pantry to the 
guest bedroom vidll be explained. Choices of furniture pieces according to income and 
general rules for interior decorating will make up much of the advice of Miss Blanke. 

Girl pupils of Miss Blanke T;ill also model drfjsses and forraals they made. All 
hues of the rainbow will be displayed on the lovliest undergraduates of Lewis. Some 
tableaus, showing how a gi.rl of average income can outfit herself completely, will be 
enacted.

Much of underp-aduata festivity during Junior Week at Armour Ccunpus vfill be con- 
tributed to by Lewis division students. They will attend the dances, take part in 
umerous contests, participate in the Spring Concert and the Orchestra and Glee Club, 
and be spectators to the Interfraternity Sing and other events. 

At least two nights, Tuesday and Wednesday at o;30 p = m.j the;v will take over the 
stage of the Student Union auditorium and define extracurricular aspects of "coeduca- 
tional," a term that has been associated in a minor way v;ith the Institute for many

RE: JUNIOR WEEK AT ILLINOIS TECH, 5/5-5/li 
OPEN HOUSE TODAY AT LETJIS GAIvIPUS ; OPEI^I 
HOUSE 5/6-5/7 AT ARMOUR CAIvPUS: EVENT-' 



A three-ring academic circus came to tovm today and vfill be here for a week. Not 
elephants but dignified professors and learned instructors, not zebras but uninhibited, 
!"rolicsome undergradu-ates, have taken over the v;est and south-side campuses of Illinois 
[nstitute of Technology, 

Elephants a.nd zebra^s of the collegiate vvorld ai^e normal citizens fifty-one weeks 
i year., Bat Junior Vveek, reigning jointly at Let-is and Armou'r divisions of the Insti- 
tute, is responsible. Some one sa.id Junior Ueek is a state of mind. Many believe 
3uch a state of mind is more terrible than a state of war, 

/in orgy of scholastic exhibits, demonstrations in laboratories and class rooms, 
the fruits of more than a hundred professorial brains of the Institute, is in session 
tods.y at Lev;is division, 1951 I?- Madison Street. It is politely called "Open House", 
It begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. It will exit there after a furious one- day 
stand, and transfer its devastating energ;,' to Armour campus, 33rd and Federal Streets, 
for a tv.'o-day stand of Tuesday and ''Wednesday, To all this, alurmii and the public are 
nvited. 

Junior Week activities of non-scholastic nature get under v/ay uith conclusion of 
Open House at i\rmour. Beginning Thursdaj^, and lasting to Saturday morning's last 
milkman, through the rocket's red glare all the flora and fauna of devilish undergrad- 
uate minds xvill rock the Armour campus in one long spasm of individual mayhem, class 
fights, fraternity jousts, duckings in the lake, kidnappings of campus "big-shots," 
pageants vjith floats, boy-and-girl revues with student-vrritten music sung by Spring- 
goofy engineering students and their coed accomplices. 

And "and. so forth" means class baseball gsmies, track contests, a whisker-grov.dng 

contest, a pie-eating contest, a gxeased-pole climbing contest, a faculty-senior class 

baseball game, a Spring Concert by the Glee Club and Orchestra and, above all, the 
recurrent public unveilings.

These public unveilings are indigenous to the Arnour campus, \vhere they have been 
tylish for thirty-six Junior Weeks. For no reason at all, all of a sudden a crov;d of 
ndergraduate mobsters is likely to be seen taking the trousers off of somebody. No 
cod reason. Just for fun. There have been historic "depantsings," notablj^ the Spring 
f '27 when a trustee, young enough to appear a graduate student, lost his striped 
lorning trousers. 

The serious side of Junior Week, the solid scientific achievenient of faculty mem- 
)ers of the Institute and investigation of moijibers of the Arraour Research Foundation, 
ffiliate of the Institute, is evidenced this week, by more than two hundred separate 
>±iibits and demonstrations on Lewis and i\rmoi;r campuses. 

Today at Lewis notable displays of the physics, che:nistr;r, biology and applied art 
partments may be seen, A sheet-metal gayser, imitating Old Faitr^ful of Yellowstone 
lational Park, will erupt every ten minutes, Chemdcal reactions of explosives at high 
eraperature ?/ill be watched. The human voice will be measured by a device that gives 

candid camera shot of it. 0?rganisins that make the humciii body what it is will be under 
lass for members of the public. A lah-de-dah dress and style show, with ir:anneG;uins 
hosen from campus beauties, will intrigue the ladies. 

Tomorrow and Wednesday at Armour campus a magic carpet of brilliant teclmological 
md scientific displays wijl be spread before visitors. 

Domiinating the entrance hall of the administration building villi be a recently- 
constructed model of the projected 5>35000,OCO Institute campus, with m.ore than a dozen 
isuildings in m.iniature. The design, a sensational departure from conventional archi- 
tectural forms, embodies the functional construction ideas of Ludwig Mies von der Rohe, 
internationally-celebrated head of the architocture department. 

Other interesting architectural department displays will be found, v.'ith emphasis 
on student and faculty work of an original nature. Work in progress in all types of 
modern construction problems, from cottage to skyscraper, will be shown. 



-3- 

The organic ch^^stry exhibits, showing ;-:ork in plastics 3 synthetic dress mater- 
als under e>3.mination5 will be lectivred on by members of the department and their stu- 
ent aides. Hov.' explosives are made, and hou' r.iany medicinals are originated, v^ill be 
xplained. Chemical elements of the every-day universe, from vhich many products in the 
verage home are fabricated, will be traced in their evolution. 

The electrical engineering laboratories will be on parade under the title "F^nat 
s the Watt?" The possibilities of fi7,'ing sm.all sausages by means of heat produced 
rom a short-wave generator, and witho-at the use of a frying pan or a regulation fire, 
ill be made public. 

Physics department experiments v/ill explore basic principles of light, heat and 
ound as they affect daily life. A fljr v/heel, ms.king 2,000 revolutions per minute, 
ill be given the appearance of being motionless, the device of a stroboscopic light 
eing used. Television developments, insofar as they are within the scope of presenta- 
ion of the Institute, \?ill be demonstrated. 

The approach of the engineer to groat engineering problem.s by means of plants and 
aps, many of them dravm from historic maps of the city of Chicago, v^ill be indicated, 
ills v.'ill bo within the scope of the civil engineering department. 

The vast resources of the Institute in relation to defense training '"ork will be 
utlined by tours of various shops and laboratories rhere they are housed. The United 
tates Army Ordnance gauge laboratory is at pro33nt located in the i-'irmour Research 
oundation. 

Dr. W. C. Krath'vohl, professor of mathematics and director of the department of 
ducational tests and measurements, Y/ill conduct short periods of research into psycho- 
ogical testing of adults and adolescents by means of questions from radio "quiz" pro- 
rams, most of r;hich have already been asked of fresliman entering the Institute. A 
tandard of judgment for intelligence has thus already been set up for those ansuering 
aestions with which visitors to Junior Week may compare their ovm intelligence • 
uotients.

RELEASE FOR: MONDAY, 5/5/4-1 



With Junior Week coming up all of Tech's athletic teams display an abnormal 
schedule taking advantage of the week's dismissal from classes. The tennis team, how- 
ever, has the toughest assigr^ment of them all - five matches in five days - meeting 
Lake Forest and Chicago Teachers here on Mondajr and Tuesdf.y at the University of 
Chicago courts, then embarking on a tour of the State of Indi.-?.na 7,'here they vidll meet 
on successive days, Indiana State Teachers College, Butler, and Purdue, 

Having a seasonal record of five Y;ins and t-;o losses, the Engineers will have a 
"lust for blood" yjhen they meet Chicago Teachers. The Profs dealt Tech one of its two 
defeats, 4--3. Lake Forest has been registered 7-0 in the Engineer's win column for 
one meeting. 

Mid-seasonal adjtistments in the Techav/ic lineup move Captain Bob Lange into the 
number two spot following junior Mike Schultz. Fresbjnan Jim Ferguson has been dropped 
to number three and sophomore Earl Sherman, formerly number four, and junior Dick 
Dunworth^ form.erly number five, have switched places in the lineup. 

The Techavxks number one doubles combination of Mike Schialts and freshma.n Dick 
Larson has a record of six victories and not one defeat to mar the record. 

Misfortune befell the Techawk squad last year on their annual road trip to 

Indiana when Lange, then playing number two, became afflicted with a lung ailment in 

his first match necessitating the forfeiture of one singles match and greatly weakening 

the doubles matches with the consequent loss of all three encounters. 

According to Coach Hal Bavey the Netmen should win four of the week's five matche 
including both home meets, Indiana State Teachers and either Butler or Purdue. Should 
they perform this task their record would stand at nine v-dns with three losses and all 
of their major opponents will be out of the way with seven comparatively easy matches 
remaining.

FROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIEER RE: JUNIOR WEEK CONCLUDES ^'ITH JUNIOR 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF INFORAIAL AT SHAFNSE COUNTRY CLUB - 

TEGMOLOGY-VIC. 2^600 9 P.M., 5/9Al. 

RELEASE FOR; THURSDAY, MY 8, 19-41 

What Bastille Day is to the French, v;hat Fourth of July is to the United States 
at large, is Friday of Junior Peek to hordes of undergraduates and alumni of Armour 
division of Illinois Institute of Technology who tomorrov,' x^'ill v/ind up the thirty- 
sixth annual Spring festival period on that campus. 

Junior Week at the Institute, beginning Monday with a one-day Open House obser- 
vance at Lewis division campus, continuing with a two-day Open House period at A^rmour 
that ended yesterday, comes to Its stratospheric peak tomorrow at 9 P.M. 

At that time a clarinet will blow a bar of music hot as dry ice and "The Good 
Egg Scramble," vmich is the name of the Junior Class Informal dance, will jitter into 
being at Shavmee Country Club, near Wilraette. It will still be a matter of record 
well into Saturday morning or when ever "Home Sweet Home" gets itself played. 

The last day of Junior ii"Jeek, being what it is, begins at approximately 3 A.M. 
Fresliman and sophomores, skulking in little bands about the sleeping campus at 33rd 
and Federal Streets, will begin preparing strategies and aminunition for their class 
rush beginning at 3 P.I/I. on Ogden P'ield. 

They will make up "kidnap lists," the unofficial tabs on ?/hich members of the 
opponent class must be removed from circulation long before the class rush actually 
starts. Usually the huskiest, or the most resourceful, of the enemy is spirited to 
a distant forest preserve or public park and left there -without his trousers. In 
some cases, when the kidnapee gives imdue resistance, he is left vrithout any clothes. 

Also, considerable time is necessary for mixture of stench tombs, small explosive 
caps and other chemical devices used in the rough-and-tumble braxvls that interrupt 
the regular order of the dray's events. 

Officially, all who have rested sufficiently from the dance of the preceding 
night following the Glee Club and Orchestra Concert in the Student Union, are to be on

hand for a greased-pole c3.imbing contest in Ogden Field, A specie.1 grease compoundj 
prepared in the laboratories of the Institute, and containing the lowect degree of 
viscositj'' possible, v;ill be smeared on a thirty-foot pole for ambitious climbers. 

At 10 A.M. a pie-eating contest will be conducted on the field. Rumours reach- 
ing Arm.our campus state a bevy of coeds from Leri'is division, dressed as engineering 
students, v'ill attempt to enter the contest. 

One of the most colorful of all undergraduate activities of Junior T7eek is the 
interfraternity and Interdepartmental pageant. Ten fraternities and six departments 
of the Institute will be represented by floats a.nd stationary exhibits illustrating 
individual themes. Ogden Field will have the appearance of some great circus tent 
dressed up brilliantly as engineers and architects can manage. 

A tug-of-v/ar bet-',7een junior and senior class teams will open the afternoon. At 
1 P.M. fifty members on each side v.'ill begin to svieat and haul for ten minutes to a 
decision. By this tim.e an immense cvovrd vrill have circled Ogden Field, A greater 
mingling of students from Armour anc'l Le-^ is campuses ;-;ill occur tl-ian at any other time 
during the year. 

The stage will be set for the freshman-sophomore rush at 3 P.M. Available m.em- 
bers of each class vrill line up at opposite ends of Ogden B'ield. At the barking of a 
gun they v/ill charge toward the field's center where a dozen strav; d-ummies will have 
been placed in a row. For a half an hour each group will contend, v.'ith the idea of 
bringing lja.ck to its starting point as many of the dunijnies aB possible. 
^ Junior class marshals, selected by vote from each department, are authorised to 
police this feud. They chiefly must distinguish betv.'een murder and mayhem. 

The fact is usually brought out at such a time that a policeman without his pants 
is quite like a.n ordinary person, in fa.ct, much more ludicrous. A certain delicate 
problem in propriety presents itself this year that never before reared its ugly head. 

One of seven junior marshals is Mary Elizabeth Spies. Elected by the architec- 
tural department of the class, she is the first girl ever to have been voted a marshal

Since Mary Elizabeth accepted her position in good faith, and after sufficient \mrning 
of its consequences during the rush, some may come off the like of v/hich has never 
been seen on Ogden Field. 

At approximately 2:30 P.M. a procession headed by H. T. Heald, presidait of the 
Institute, and J. C. Peebles, acting dean, will walk on the battlefield and declare 
it neutral ground. They "'ill present cups and raedals to persons, fraternities and 
departments winning them in competition during Junior \Veek. 

A feature of the "Gi^cd Egg Scramble" or Junior Informal Dance v,-ill be a contest 
for "the handsomest male legs of an Illinois Tech undergraduate," Bea Mathev/s, chorus 
beauty of Mike Todd's Theater Cafe, r,dll act as judge. Miss Mathev's has announced 
she accepted on the condition no boF-legged gentlemen were entered. An eye-straighten- 
ing operation as a child left her liable to i-elapse, she stated.

TECroiOLOGY-VIC. 46OO 5/7; EVENTS. 

FOR RELEASE ^ WEDNESDAY, f,lAY 7, 194-1 

A day-long vmirl of social and athletic events 5 rising to a crescendo with an 

evening Spring Glee Club and Orchestra Concert, '.-/ill set the rhythm of Junior I'Jeek 

activities tomorrow, Thursday, May 8, 1941 at Arrriour campus of Illinois Institute of 

Technology, 33rd and Federal Streets, 

From Monday, --.'hen Open House exhibits and demonstrations at Lex'/is camms, 

1951 1?'. Madison Street, drei- hundreds of visitors, to Friday night's Junior Informal 

dance at Shavmee Country Club, the Institute ' s thirty-sixth annual Junior Week \7ill 

have rushed along on an unprecedented scale to applause of the greatest crowds in its 

history. : 

Today the last stage of Open House celebration is in full-swing at Armour campus 

Open House, after its one-day observance at Lewis, yesterday moved to Armour, with 

facultj'', students, alumni a.nd friends of both divisions of the Institute joining in 

inspection of exhibits of laboratories and classrooms. The Open House phase of Junior 

Veek ends tonight. 

Tomorrov; at 9 a.m. freslaman and sophomore baseball teams will clash. At 10 a.m. 

junior and senior teams Y;ill meet. The school championship will be at sta-ke when 

rdnners of these games play at 1;15 p.m. 

An interfraternity track m.eet v/ill get under way at 11 a.m. Greek letter soci- 

ties will be vj'ing for possession of a cup o,warded annually to the keeping of the 

dinner. At 2 p.m. a faculty-senior class baseball game will be played. These^athle- 

ic events will occur on Ogden Field of the campus. 

Tho auditorium of the Student Union will be crowded to the rafters by 8 p-m. 

rtien the Glee Club and Orchestra, under the direction of 0. Gordon Erickson, take the 

Jtage. A program of an houi- a.nd one-half, with numbers selected from those used in 

ecent radio broadcasts and on the midwestern tour 01 the Glee Club, will be heard.

The Orchestra v.'ill begin v;ith Gomez' Overture "II Guarany." A group of three 
numbers by the Glee Club will follow. They are the Welsh marching song, "Men of 
Harlech," Miles' "^en All is Still," and Grode's "Song of the Dark." 

The Orchestra will then accompany the Glee Club in its renderings of Grieg's 
"To Spring," Handel's "Largo," and "Finlcindia" by Sibelius. At this half-Y/ay ma.rk in 
the prograa, the annual Interfraternity Sing Vi'ill be introduced. 

Alpha Sigma Phi, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Kappa Sigma, Pi Kappa Phi, Rho Delta Rho, 
Sigma Alpha Mu, Theta Xi and Triangle fraternities vill be competitors in the Inter- 
fraternity Sing. The membership of each nill be seated in the semicircle of the audi- 
torium's balcony dressed in light summer formal clothes. 

Unlike any other undergraduate event at the Institute, the Sing holds a special 
place in the memory of each frater^nity man who has ever participated. It approximates, 
in its sentimental significance, the May Morning ceremony or Easter Sing at Chx'ist's 
Church College, Oxford, as a part of British university life. 

Special efforts have been taken this year to make the Sing memorable. The re^ 
pertoire of each fraternity has been enlarged and each group will sing contrasting 
arrangements of now school songs vrritten by 0. Gordon Erickson and several undergrad- 
lates. 

Because this will have been the first Sing conducted under the name of Illinois 
Institute of Technology, formed last July tlirough the merger of Armour and Le?;is 
Institutes, the prize cup v/ill hold greater significance than ever before. 

Parents and friends of undergraduates, many from far corners of the United State^' 
will be in the audience. Coeds in bright colored evening dresses, some of them wear- 
ing fraternity pins and school rings acquired during Junior V'eek, will be intent on 
watching individual singers. Strains of "St. Patrick Fas i\n Engineer" boomed forth 
by deep, fresh voices, will find many a long-lived faculty member, many a usually in- 
sensitive freshman, misty-eyed.

FOR EELE/iSE; TUESDAY. MY 6, 1941 



What makes the largest technological school of the Midwest go round, v/ill be on 
mblic viev; today and tomorrow vrhen Open House observance at ALrmour carapuri of Illinois 
[nstitute of Technology puts on display laboratories, classrooms and research facili- 
ties as an educational function of Junior Week. 

Junior Week, which began yesterday vjith a one-day Open House at Lewis division, 
nds early Saturday at conclusion of Friday's Junior Informal Dance at Shar/nee Country 
Jlub, near WiLniette, The two-day Open House at Armour campus, 33rd and Federal Streets 
las been a tradition for thirty-six years = 

Prominent faculty members, among them leading researchers of various engineering 
md scientific field in the United States, will give short lectures and explanatory 
;halk-talks on demonstrations and exhibits in their respective spheres. 

Visitors who v/ish may be televised. Latest vrrinkles in television, in its labor- 
itory fionctions, will be explained. A reception room \?here friends of those televised 
aay view proceedings will be established. 

A student conducted, but faculty-constructed, machine measuring emotional inten- 
3ity of kisses is eirpected to be a leader in drawing po^ver. Wagers made "ay various 
sororities of Lev/is campus of the Institute indicate a private pool has been establish- 
d to determine the sorority whose aggregate intensity is greatest. 

I'ftxat happens to the intelligence of the brightest students after graduation will 
oe determined in a degree by an exliibit of the educational tests and measurements de- 
partment. Forty questions, of the type asked cominonly in leading radio quiz programs, 
will be offered to groups of alum.ni. 

Their ansv/ers will indicate how they compare with the current freshman class, who 
gave answers that measured their intelligence at the time of entrance to the Institute.

The kind of answer given, aside from the point of its actual correctness, v/ill help 
Dr, W, D. Krathvrohl, head of the educational tests and measurements department, make 
his diagnoses. 

The mathematics department will give all visitors a psychological shock. In a 
room covered with a million tiny dots in pencil or ink, a lecture on "How Much Is A 
Million?" will be presented. Popular errors in the thinking of most individuals on 
the extent of great mathematical figures will be exploded. 

Organic chemistry will offer a fascinating demonstration of "cold light," An 
oxidyzing reaction of nascent oxygen and a compound, mixed v>'ith a reducing agent, 
gives a blue, intense light, A book can be read if intensity is great enough. Such 
intensity ?/ill be the aim of those conducting the exiiibit. 

Coal, ViTood, oil, cellulose and other bs.siG materials, and the manufacture of 
every day articles from them, will be explained by chemical experts. Women's hose, 
wristwatches, men's suspenders and many household articles resulting from recent re- 
searches in plastics will also be commented on. Fundamental processes in the compo- 
sition of an explosive and a medicinal will be included among subjects of organic 
chemistry programs. 

In electrical engineering an amazing display of potentialities of light coming 
from a flash light will be sho^^m. This light can be made to act as a carrier of the 
spoken word though no coils or wires are used. In the dynamo laboratory a general 
outline of electrical engineering v/ill be given. Pedal-power meters, selsyn motors, 
an oscillograph and a stroboscope v/ill be exhibited. 

One of the most notable displays of each Open House is the annual one of the 
fire protection engineering department. All tj'pes of fire fighting, particularly in 
the preventative stages, v/ill be pointed out. Explosions from dust bins, from faultj^ 
wiring, from spontaneous combustion sources, v/ill be diagrammed and explained, A 
movie, "Approved by the Underv/riters," v/ill also be shov/n.

The mechanical engineering department will featare various types of internal com- 
justion machines. Fairbanks Morse Diesel, International Harvester Diesel, and Hercules 
)iesel, and their practical applications in rearming America, will be explained. 

The physics department will be represented by experiments sho-wing the spectrum 
,nd colors developing frcra it, polari;-',ed light, liquid air, short wave radio, electro- 
lagnetism, electrical discharges in gases, optics and photography. 

In a physics laboratory steel filings v/ill be made to"gro?; and stand on end" about 
, steel core, with the general effect of hair growing on a billiard ball. A fly 
rheel, by means of a stroboscopic light, though turning at 2,000 revolutions per min- 
ite, will seem to stand still. 

Civil engineering will have a shov.- containing one hundred old maps of Chicago, 
ith accompanying plats that explain most of the great engineering developments of 
!hicago. How the Chicago River Vifas raade to reverse its course, not alv^ays imderstood 
ilearly by Chicagoans, will be thoroughly explained. 

Among events calculated to dramatize manly rivalry between fraternities and diff- 
srent departments of the school, which participate in social activities during Junior 
feek, will be a whisker-growing contest. It will be judged today at 1 P.M. The winner 
rill be subjected to a public shaving ty friends. 

This afternoon, sharply at 1 P.M., a pentathlon will be conducted in Ggden Field, 
i3rd and Federal Streets. It v/ill include e. 70-yard dash, mile run, high jump, and low 
lurdles events and lettermen of the track squad will not be excluded from the contest. 

A note of hilarity v;ill be brought to the campus today at 8 P.M. when a boy-and- 
;irl troupe of singers and dancervS from Lewis division of the Institute present a revue 
In the Student Union auditorium. Songs v.-ritten by undergraduates, with lovely coeds in 
:rick dance formations Y/ill be included. A skit marking the merger of Armour and Lewis 
iivisions will highlight the humorous background of the revue.

RE; TRIANGULAR TRACK ffiET AT ELMHURST 

ILLINOIS TECH, WHEATON AND ELIiiHURST 5/7 

RELEASE FOR: WEDNESDAY 5/7/4.1 



Illinois Tech's trcck team will meet Wheaton and Elmhurst Colleges on Wednesday 
afternoon, May 7th, in a triangular track meet to be held at Elmhiorst. 

The Engineer's have defeated Wheaton and Elmhurst in indoor meets this past 
winter but were nosed out by ELnhurst in a dual meet held a few days ago. On this 
basis it appears that the Techawks have a better than even chance of winning the meet. 

An analysis of the meet leaves the winner of the 100 yard dash undecided but the 
220 and the UUO are almost certain to be taken by Tech's freshman Bob Osborne. 
Another of the Engineer's flashy freshmen, George Erkert is good for a 2:07 half mile 
which will undoubtedly win that event. 

The mile run promises to be a real fight between Tech's Wayne McCullough, 
Wheaton' s Captain Dayton Cooper and Elmhurst 's Captain Ted Mauch. In the Beloit Rela; 
which '#ere held last Friday evening McCullough covered the distance in -4:4-2, ample 
time to nose out the Wheaton and Elmhurst Captains. 

The two mile will be a similar duel betireen Mauch and Cooper, except that 
McCullough will be replaced by Tech's less talented Hank Jackowski. 

Illinois Tech is notoriously weak in the field events this season but shows 
promise of great improvement. Captain Harry Heidenreich carries the colors for Tech 
in the high jump, pole vault, and the javelin throw. His most serious competitors wi] 
be Chistiansen of Vfiieaton in the high jump and the pole vault and Rauh of Elmhurst in 
the javelin throw. 

Heidenreich was destined to start breai-iing records in the javelin this season 
but foul line difficulties have nullified his efforts. 
Jj^, One of the latest finds of Coach Norm Root of Illinois Tech is John Tregay, star 

diver of the swiiraning team who has been converted into a discus hurler and shot 
putter. His most recent efforts have been 115' and 39 '10" respectively in the tvro -"' 
events .

Conceding the tv>ro hurdle races to George Winkley of Elinhurst it remains quite 
possible that the outcome of the meet may depend on the final relay and it is here 
that the engineers shine. Their freshman medley relay team placed third in the Beloit 
Relays with one but exceptionally slow 220 yard leg.

Curves may help to make a v/oinan's legs v«hat px^^ets v;rite about but do curves in 
a man's legs mean anything other than he is bovdegged? 

This profoimd question rnaj'- be settled tonight at the ShavTiee Country Club, near 
Wilraette, when Bea Mathevs, strip-tease star of Michael Todd's Theater Cafe, where she 
has succeeded Gypsy Rose Lee, chooses the ovmer of the best male legs among Illinois 
Institute of Technology students » 

J'ifty contestants in this manly gam derby ivill be among three hundred students 
and their partners '.'.rho v^'ill be enjoying the "Good Egg Scramble," or Junior Class in- 
formal dance. All contestants will be barred from v/earing opei-a-length silk hose, an 
expedient of lissome ladies, according to Richard Talcott, junior fire protection en- 
gineer, chairman of the dance comjiiittee. 

The committee confesses to puszlem.ent regarding what other ground rules to en- 
force in the contest, Talcott says. 

Should OTiTiers of very sv/arthy legs be classed separately from red-haired or 
blonde competitors? Should a pair of knock-knees that are outstanding be awarded a 
booby prize? 

The contest winner v^'ill receive a pair of blue garters, ¥;ith her name worked into 
the design, from Miss Mathews, The dance will be interrupted at 10:4-5 P-rHo to allow 
judging to take place. 

The Junior Class informal dance will come as the crovmlng event of a week-long 
celebration on the Institute's Lewis and Armour campuses of Junior Yfeek, a tradition 
for thirty-six years. A one-day Open House observance took place at Lewis Monday. 
Tuesday and Wednesday Open House was observed at Armour. 

Yesterday and today a schedule of athletic and social events involved under- 
graduates. Class baseball games, the winning class team to be awarded a cup.

BOTH TODAY, 5/loAl 

FOR RELEASE^ SATURDAY. MAY 10 , 194.1. 



Meiaory of a 7-6 defeat in ten innini^s, suffered eight days ago at the h^.^ds of 
Chicago Teachers CoU.ege, v;ill nestle in back pockets of Illinois Tech baseball play- 
ers next to tobacco plugs when they engage the same foe today at 2:30 p,ra, in Ogden 
Park, 69th Street and Racine Avenue. 

For 'though they outhit the Teachers in their last meeting, the Techams couldn't 
claim a moral victory since they coranitted more infield and outfield errors, and on 
their home diamond, than in any txvo previous games of the season. 

Simply on the strength of feeling they are, normally, a better team, the Techawk; 
will this afternoon pick up their bats v.'ith a burning desire for revenge. They have 
shovm in their last four games they can hix any kind of pitching. They have indicated 
against teams they can get the ,j"ump on, they can play like a high-powered unit. 

But the Engineers have also demonstrated they are laggard, for innings at a time 
when an opponent scores heavily in early innings. The desire to respond in kind 
seldom seems to take hold before the seventh inning. Coach Bernard "Sonny" Feissman 
will send out his boys today with instructions to hit everything, and imined lately. 

Though the Teachers College tilt is not a game in the liorthern Illinois College 
Conference, the Techav4cs v«.ll use Alex Yursis, first-line hurler, to mow the enem.y 
dovm. Al Dambros, clever port-side slinger, Kill relieve him if necessary. 

At first base "Hod" Carrier seems to have supp].anted Raj LaGodney, v/ho, though 
a better hitter, has trouble fielding infield bunts. Mario Silla, entering the line- 
up at third base two weeks ago when regvilar Bill Grosse broke his leg, is the star of 
the infield combination. Fielder Bill Kackbarth continues to lead the team in batting, 
smiting the apple at a .54-1 clip.

An annual standout, event on the Techarlz's outdoor track calendar is the Elmhurst 
College Invitational meet. The Techav;kSj represented by a full squad, v/ill be at 
major seasonal strength. Weiinesday's three-way mset at Fneaton College, in v/hich 
Illinois Tech placed second to its hosts and beat Elmliurst College, v;as a thriller. 

Wheaton's margin of victory vras a fraction of a point. Tl'.e times of -.vinnsrs in 
the ;44-0-yard dash, the mile relay, and the lov; hurdles, event taken by Tech, show 
that Coach Norman Root's men are in fine fettle. 

Though not ranked likely to place among the first three competing schoolCj, since 
strong Loyola Univei'sity, North Central and Northern Illinois St3.te Tea.chers College 
teams are enter:jd, the Scarlet and Gray may be in the points coluBin in field events, 
witn Jack Tregay putting the shot, throwing the discus and hurling the javelin. 
Captain Harry Heidenreich rill also perfoi-m the latter two chores. Bob Osborne, vrho 
will be a man to bes.t i.n the /j4.0-yard run and century, will run the anchor leg on the 
one-mile relay tes.m, Wayne MoOullough will run tho mile and v/ill have to compete 
against a strong field, many of his opponents having made better times in the Illinois 
Tech Relay Games last winter.

RELEASE FOR; THURSDAY, 5/l5Al 

Thursday, Lfey 15, will find most of the Techav.'k athletes engaged in competition 
as the baseball team entertains Concordia at 3 P.M. ?;hile the trackmen travel to 
Loyola and the netmen battle Marquette in Milwaukee. 

The luckless baseballers seem to have everything e:>:cept that vital y.'inning spark 
to put across the v/inning tally. Coach Weissman's boys are hitting and the fielding 
is good except for the first few innings when the opposition 'ouilds up a lead that the 
Engineers could protabaly overtake if the game v;ere permitted to continue past the 
ninth inning. A ray o£ hope exists, however, in the fact that Concordia is the source 
of the only Illinois Tech win this year. 

Reserve pitcher Bill McDonough will most likely get the starting assignment in ■ 
place of regular Alexander Yursis who had to replace M Dambros in the second inning 
of Tuesday's encounter with De K3.1b. His receiver, Captain Bill Bauch has been hot 
with the stick of late with seven out of ten hits in the last two games, including two 
doubles and a three bagger. 

The trackmen, v/ith a superiority in the field events 'will match their talents 
against the Rejnblers and depend heavily upon Fresliman Bob Osborne, in the 220 and AAO, 
and VJajTie McCullough, distance man to make serious indentations in Loyola's tradition- 
ally strong events and possibly win the meet. Captain Harry Heidenreich in the pole 
vault and javelin throw and John Tregay putting the shot and tiirowing the discus are 
counted as certain scorers for the Engineers. 

Tech's netmen have been by far the most successful of any of the Techawk teams 

this year with nine v;ins as against three losses, University of Chicago, Purdue and 

Chicago Teachers. Yvith seven games left on their schedule, Thursday's encounter with 

Marquette is the only one that gives them any concern. 

Tne cream of this outstanding crop, however, is the number one doubles combina- 
tion of junior Mike Schultz and freshinan Dick La.rson who have bowed to "out one oppon- 
ent, Purdue, 6-4., 6-4-, in the tv^elve matches played to date.

FOR RELEASE: FRIDAY, MY I6, 194-1. 

Turning to the home stretch in its sixteen-game season, Illinois Tech's baseball 
team plays Augustana College of Rock Island tomorrow, Saturday, 5/17/4-1, at 2:30 p.m. 
at Ogden Field, 33rd and Federal Streets, in its last 194-1 home game. 

After tomorrow only three road tilts remain to be played and the season will be 
\vrapped in mothbc.lls. Elmliur-st, V.heaton and Northern Illinois State Teachers (DeKalb) 
Colleges compose this trio. 

Against Augustana Coa.ch Bei'nard. "Sonny" Weissman \7ill probably start Eouthpa?; 
Al Dambros, in the hope that if v/arm weather prevails he will come through with the 
sparkling performa.nce he has hinted at several times earlier this Spring. 

Dambros vas driven off the mound in a second-inning barrage of nine hits Tuesda;/ 
vhan DeKalb met the Scai^let and Grey at Ogden Field. Cool vfinds from Lake Michigan 
kept the field too breezy for Coach Weissman' s sophomore hurler and he hardly got undei 
ViTay vfhsn the Teachers began to hit him repeatedly. 

Still troubled by the problem of adequata first-- base coverage, Coach Weissman 
has shifted Jack Byrne, a sophomore basketball flash to that post. Ray LaGodney and 
Marvin "Hod" Carrier, contesting the place from opening of the season, had hobbled so 
badly in several contests that Byrne, an inferior hitter, had to be given his opportun- 
ity. 

At this stage of the season a Imckv/ard glance reveals infield errors have been 
the nem.esis of the Engineers. Pitchers Alex Yursis, Dambros and Bill McDonough, with 
support in critical moments, x'^/ould have a .500 per cent higher pitching averages and 
the 'binning average of the team would have been immeasurably higher. 

Lett fielder ^ill Hackbarth, though benched Tuesday for a desultory performance 
at bat against De Kalb, is the team's leading hitter and Y:ill likely remain so. Lead- 
off man and caicher Bill Bauch, co-captain, with a batting average of .34-6 does not

RELEASE FOR: MONDAY, 5/19/41 

The vreek ending May 24th will see the Illinois Tech track team completing the 
current season. The baseball team plays a double header against a conference oppon- 
ent and a single game against Big Ten competition. The highly successful tennis team 
seeks three more victories to add to the present string. 

The traclcmen travel to 7Jheaton for their final engagement on Wednesday, May 21, 
where they v/ill be i;;ithout the services of their coach, Norm Root. Coach Root was 
compelled to retire indefinitely due to illness. 

Captain Harry Heidenreich will rely iipon Bob Osborne to carry the heaviest burden 
of point gathering in this contest. Bob was voted the most outstanding freshman ath- 
lete in the school by the honorary athletic societj^ last week for his performance in 
the dashes. Captain Heidenreich is expected to score heavily in the pole vault, high 
jump, and javelin throw. 

Their first game being rained out, the baseball team is compelled by league rul- 
ings to play a double header of t\?o seven inning contests at Elmhurst on ?fednesday, 
May 21. At the present tim.e the Techar/ks have defeated Concordia twice and bowed to 
Wheaton and North Central in games of the Northern Illinois Collegiate Conference for 
a .50c average. The big game of the year of course is the University of Chicago con- 
test to be held on Saturday, May 24, and from present indications the Engineers 
stand ready to give the Maroons a real battle, 

A somewhat shaky team at the start of the year, the Tech nine has seasoned to the 
point v/here fielding is almost flawless. Kitting has alv/ays been good against all 
pitching and the pitching staff is considerably above the average. 

Entertaining Northern Illinois State Teachers college of DeKalb on Wednesday, 
May 21, and traveling to Concordia on Fridsiy, May 23, and Loyola on Saturday, May 24, 
the netmen expect to coast along while annexing three more victories to their present 
string of nine. The racketeers have previously defeated Loyola and DeKalb decisively 
and Concordia is conceded to be a "soft touch."

TECmJOLOGY-VIC . 4.600 AMERICAN TOUR OF NATIONAL ItESEARCH 

COUNCIL. 

FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, MI 25, 194-1 = 

South i\merica is an a',7akening colossus whose favor is being curried by the 
United States, Great Britain and Germany in a bitter trade fight of which hemisphere 
defense is an important overtone but Yxf no meo,ns the dominating reality. 

This is the basic conclusiou of Harold Vagtborg, youthful director of Armour 
Research Foundation, affiliate of Illinois Institute of Technology, on his return 
last week from a fifty-day investigation of jiiTierica's "good neighbor" continent as a 
member of a comiiiittee under auspices of the National Research Council, 

Vagtborg was one of tliree Chicago3-ns picked for the conamittee. It included 
twenty-one leading industrialists, technologists and research experts of the nation, 
and was sent with joint be.cking of the National Research Council of National Academy o: 
Sciences, Nelson A. Rockerfeller, Coordinator of comiaercial and cultural relations 
between the Americas, and Jesse H. Jones, secretarj" of commerce. 

"The majority of the ten South American republics look on the United States as 
a friendly political force, desire increased trsde relations vfith us and are fervent 
in hopes for heavy capital and technological investments of ilmerican firms in the var- 
ious countries," he Sc'iid. 

"But they are amazed by vigorous British ass^-imptions that the United States will 
be at v.'ar Very soon, backing up a British Empire', when that Empire is not only attem.p- 
ting to hold its o^^m in South A'lierican shipping and commerce, but aggressively com- 
peting with American firms. 

"It is somewhat of a shock for an /imerican to return to this country and hear 
the cry that our merchant shipping, in part, should be turned over to a nation that it 
a prime competitor, so to speak, for commerce in South America, v/hen that nation 
(Britain), actively carrying on shipping operations in .South American waters, should

be expected in time of war to be putting all of her merchant marine into the war 
life-line effort. 

"British interests control the greater part of the English-language newspapers 
of South America, These papers confidently reflect the English by-word in South 
America: 'Bu.siness as usual.' 

A large English department store in Buenos Aires had in its display windows a 
bale of goods from a ship shelled on its way from an English port to South America. 
Bullet holes perforated it. V<hen one sav; the 'business as usual' stamp on this goods 
he realized what was meant, i'vs far as these shippers were concerned, there was not 
only to be no relaxation of their trade, but benefits of iLmerican capital, pumped into 
the veins of South American commerce at this time, are welcomed to the Empire at an 
increasing rate . 

British craft line the harbors of South American ports, Vsigtborg said, gi^eatly 
outnumbering American and other nationals' vessels. He made a particular point of 
visiting harbors of Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, he 
declared, aftei' this anomaly of the international traffic situation struck him. 

"Our commercial competition with Germany is another matter," Vagtborg pointed 
out. 

"There are sections of or groups in South American republics that are heavily 
Nazi in sjTnpathy. Chile, for instance, has the famous Industrial Institute of Sa.nta 
Maria, near Santiago, which has unsurpassed equipment and a very competent faculty. A 
few years ago, a fortune being left by Santa Maria, a philanthropist, almost an entire 
faculty and all equipment -were imported from Germany. 

"Wherever there has been teclinological or scientific advance in South America, 
German influence has had much to do with it. However, it must be remembered that 
American political idealism is the original of most of the constitutions of the ten 
republics and their sympathies are much closer to American ways of life."

Araerica's delinquency in the matter of "good neighbor" relations with South 
American republics, though it has allov.'ed England and Germany to get a head start in 
sections that might as easily have been susceptible to American overtures if any had 
been made, villi net prove to be an insuperable handicap, Vagtbcrg stated. 

"The United States has always, thi'ough some of its banking and industrial circles 
been represented in South American commerce on a sizable sca.le. The nitrate deposits 
of the Guggenheims in Chile alone represent a $200,000,000 investment, 

"Heavy industries which South America lacks so badly can be best supplied by 
"Jorth American interests » Recently our government subsidized Argentina and Brazil, 
The former ras advanced $110,000,000, the latter $25,000,000 for a steel industry with 
the provision that another $20,000,000 for this enterprise be raised in Brazil," 

im amazing fact of industrial life in South America is the reluctance of familiee 
firith imm.ensc fortunes to invest them in types of businesses other than that ^■ihich 
earned their wealth, Vagtborg declared, 

"This slowness to discover means of investment for accumulated capital has i^rovec, 
unhealthy for the republics in general," he observed. 

"This feeling is reflected partially in the attitude of the peasant Ycorkman, who 
is difficult to persuade to adopt large-production methods for manufacture and market- 
ing of his products. In Colombia a maker of art objects from kiln materials, for in- 
stance, clings i-igidly to his conception of himself as the individual artist, lavish- 
ing overmuch time and care on his product. 

"VJhile this may be adn;ir2.ble as an aesthetic conception, it has meant the ab- 
sence in the real sense of a middle class, v.dth the extremes of peasantry or virtual 
serfdom on one hand and concentrated patrician wealth on the other. Y^ere the indivi- 
dual v/orker has learned modern methods of production, and his t^/pe is rapidly in- 
creasing, the rise of a self-sufficient, well-provided-for middle class is seen," 

Lack of proper conimunication and transportation betv/een a South American republic 

and its neighbor has been a great handicap which North American impetus will help to 
overcome, Vagtborg said.

"In all the time I was in South America I don't remember having seen a single 
soal-tauming locomotive, rvood-barning locomotives are common. Braailians utilize some 
3f their coffee surplus by burning it as locomotive fuel. Corn is used \rj Argentina 
Cor the same prurposo. Peru has coal and it is mined on a small scale elsevdiere. Oil 
is pleritiful in several of the republics but little industriaj. adaptation of it has 
been effected generally. 

"Much building in cement, which is a common product in most of the republics, has 
been done. It must be remembered , hov/ever, that the great proportion of the population 
which is Indirm or of mixed origin, lives under conditions similar to the worst parts 
of the south of the United Sxates. 

"Peru is most advanced as a builder but is woefully lacking in roads by a North 
Araerica,n standard. The Pan-/unerican high\»;ay stretches, in its unfinished stage, dovm 
a good part of the west coast, and provides pleaj^ant riding. 

"So poor has transportation been, both as to roads and railroads, that there has 
been relatively little commerce between many of the republics. The coming of the war 
meant loss of European markets for many of these governments that should have been 
engaging in greater commerce with one another. 

"Colombia, for instance, is relatively undeveloped as an agricultural country 
when we consider what a supply— bin it could be for its sister republics. It has sever- 
al variations of climate and fine soil in many sections. 

"Brazil, for example, iro;ports a large supply of melons from Portugal, even though 
fine melons ai'e groi'Ti in Chile, as v/ell as in Peru and /irgentina. These and m.any other 
agricultural products must be transported sloAvly in South America, . since passage from 
one republic to the next is often by coast-wise vessels. A product is tediously 
brought from deep in the interior do?m to a sea.-port tov.Ti and then sent by boat north 
or south to the next port destination." 

With Brazil as an exception, no extensive scientific or engineering application 
in industry have been made on the continent, Vagtborg claimed. Chile, Vv'ith Santa Alaria

[nstitute, and the superior University of Chile at Santiago, is well-thought-of educa- 
tionally throughout the other republics. There is a great demand for graduates of 
"hilean schools. 

"All South American schools are extremely anxious to exchange students 5 though 
Lt has been shown South American students in North iimerican schools often are unhappy 
)r unsuccessful in these foreign backgrounds," Vagtborg declared. 

"The ideal situation from the South Ajnerican vievrpoint is to import professors, 
md I believe at le8.st 500 of them could be placed at once. It is v.'ith great diffi- 
;ulty, though, that Arn.erican professors can be persuaded to raise their families out 
)f the United States and thus many are not anxious to stay for any length of time in 
South America . " 

Most progressive city in the industrial sense is Sao Paulo, Brazil, with a pop- 
ilation of approximately 1,500,000 and a variation of manufactured products that ex- 
;eeds any tvm competitors in South America, Vagtborg said. Its seaport is Santos,

CoiTunen cement week at Illinois Institute of Technology r.dll open next Sunday 
(June 85 194.1) with delivery of a baccalaureate sermon by Rev. Harold W. Ruopp, minis-

Rev. Ruopp v;ill address the first graduating class of the Institute, represent- 
ing both Armour College of Engineering and Le^-sis Institute of Ajrts and Sciences divi- 
sions, on the subject "He Took It Upon Himself." 

A-ppro:riiaately 379 graduates, vmose commencement exercises take place Thursday,

baccalaureate sei^vice, ths first occasion on rhich they will ha\'e met in a body during 
the current school year. 

Rev. Ruopp, since a 7>''ear ago September holding the pulpit of Central Church, wii; 
at the request of Institute authorities, be repeating the first sermon he made on 
coming to his Chicago pastorate. 

Included among men and v/omen students in his audience ?n-ll be forty-eight grad- 
uate degree candidates of Armour division, 206 bachelor of science candidates of the 
same division, and 125 bachelor of science candidates of Levd-S division, Officers of 
the administration and faculty will attend in a body. 

Rev, Ruopp will develop his theme on tiie broad outline of the realization every 
man must have of his obligation to his fellow man. This obligation inust ex^jress it- 
self, Rev. Ruopp xvill contend, through acts of brotherly love and noblesse oblige. 

"All humai: beings must sooner or later face the fact of need in the world," he 
will begin. 

"Persons you and I knov/ classify themselves for us by the manner in vifhich they 

react to the fact of human need. This classification is inescapable since man is 

prominently a social being, with dependence on his fellow-man and interlocking acti- 
vities that presuppose kindness extended to and "oy that fellov; creature.

"Sorae persons we obsex-ve over the years apparently never see this obligation to 
face the fact of need. They act, not only immorally but amonally, as if it need not 
touch upon their existences. Others respond hj raising silly questions about the 
manner of procedure they will adopt to alleviate an ill or blot out an injustice. 

"Still another group says, 'Somebody ought to do something about this situation 
bat I vron't because it is none of my business.' Just vjhat they define as their busi- 
ness no rational person could say. It seems as if anything, or everything, is a 
selfish person's business until he finds he v/ill lose something by extending himself 
to do a kindness. 

"At a time when the vrorld again seems headed for ages of darkness, the individual 
anarchy caused by selfishness seems to have taken on a concrete, collective meaning 
and expression, ITnole nations, and international groups of mankind, have assumed the 
prerogatives of God and have succeeded in denying not only everyday kindnesses to their 
fello\7-men but even the very breath of liberty, which the dignity of the individual 
soul demands. 

"Yo'ong men and women about to embark on the journey of complete living, for v/hich 
rigorous and selective educational facilities he.ve fitted them, must be put in m.ind 
of the experience of the ages in these matters. 

"You must, each one of you, resolve to watch for the fact of human need in every- 
day life. You must resolve to become technologists of the human spirit, perfection- 
ists in the matters where human good will and kindness are the oils that allow the 
wheel of daily intercourse to function. 

"You must become, not merely remaining v/hat you a^re, the bachelors of sciences, 

the masters of sciences, the doctors of engineering and the like, but bachelors of 
human dignity expressed through self-respect and self-extension in kindness, the mas- 
ters of the arts and sciences of living nobly through good v;orks, and the doctors of 
engineering that probe problems of the human heart and spirit in charity."

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE 0? 
TECHNOLOGY- VIC. 4-600 FOR IIEfflDIATE RELEASE 

With thirteen victories to their credit, the Illinois Tech netraen villi seek num- 
ber fourteen in a contest at Concordia College tomorrow afternoon. May 23rd. 

The powerful Techav/k squad has lost three matches this season, ti70 to Big Ten 
schools - University Chicago and Purdue - and a third to Chicago T-achers College. This 
Last loss has since been avenged by a 5-2 conquest by the Teehawks in a return match. 

Among those conquered by the Engineers are Loyola, DeKalb, Lake Forest, and 
[ndiana State Teachers College, all victims of two defeats and Tech has single decision; 
igainst Wabash, George VJilliams, Butler and Marquette. 

Playing number one for the Teehawks is junior Mike Schultz. Due to the uniform- 
ity of quality of the Engineer squad, hov/ever, Mike has won but about fifty per cent 
)f his m^atches. Nevertheless, he is still seeded as Tech's best man. 

Captain Bob Langc plays the number two spot for Tech. Lange, a senior in fire 
)rotection engineering, has made a marvelous recovery this season from the illness Vi"hicl 
3efell him at mid-season last year. 

A freshman, Jim Ferguson, is playing number three, 'with sophomore Es.rl Sherman 
md junior Dick Dunworth com.ploting the group of singles contestants. 

Another freshinan, Dick Larson, has been setting the vrorld on fire as a result of 
lis doubles play while teamed with Mike Schultz. To date, they have lost only to a 
strong Purdue combination. 

The remaining doubles m.atch has been played by almost every combination possible 
m the squad, and the most successful seems to be that of Captain Lange and Jim Fergusoi 

Following the Concordia tilt the Techavrks have two gam.es, a home-and-home series 
7ith Whoaton. Here on Tuesday, May 27, and there on Saturday, May 31 =

■For 'RELEASE: MONDAY, MY 26, 194.1- 

With graduation activities approaching and the hot bteath of draft claims on 
their necks, Illinois Tech athletes this week swing into final contests of the Spring 
sports program,, the baseball and tennis teams moving out of toi-m and the golf team 
winding up at home. 

Tomorrow (Tuesday, May 27) Coach Bernard "Sonny" FJeissman will send his Scarlet 
and Grey baseball team against WheE4tQn College at iTheaton and Thursday (May 29) will 
accompany his boys to Northern Illinois State Teaclisrs College (DeKalb) for the 
season's concluding tilt. 

After a disastrous early season, in which out of nine games only one was a vic- 
tory, the baseball team has geared itself to a winning pace, having defeated Concordia, 
Augustana, and Elmhurst (both games of a double-header), meanwhile shox^ing amazing 
hitting and fielding strength. 

Tomorrov/' s meeting with Wheaton v/ill determine the ultimate place of Illinois 
Tech in the Northern Illinois College Conference league, in which opponents beating 
the Techavv'ks have been North Central (tv/ice), and Wliec.ton (once). As Concordia has 
been beaten twice, and ELmhurst the same number of times > these victories plus a win 
over Wheaton tomorrow will moan a .500 league average for the Techawks. 

Coach Hal Davey's tennis aggregation has been the talk of Tech's campus and beeirs 
one of the most remsjrkable seasonal records in recent annals of Scarlet and Grey sports, 
Friday's X7in against Concordia at River Forest by a 7-0 score vfas characteristic of 
Davey's netraen, vjhose total at this date is thirteen victories out of a possible sixteei 

Today (Monday, May 26) they play Chicago Teachers College as a return engagement 
with a foe that beat them barely at the beginning of the season. Tomorrow (Tuesday, 
'.lay 27) ITlieaton will be engaged here and Saturday (M&.y 31) the same foe -/ill be met 
an its home grounds. 

Tech's golf team v.*ill journey to Western State Teachers (Kalamazoo) Thursday, 
fey 29 to close a season vjhioh has been desultorily played, since frequent rainouts 
tiave occurred.

TECm^IOLOGY-VIG. 4-600 

RELEASE-. FOR VJEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 19^1 

The Aliunni ^-sociation of Armour Institute of Teclmology, asserubled last night, 
Tuesday, May 27, 194-1 in the Knickerbocker Hotel, held v;hat may turn out to be the last 
annual get-togethei' of that venerable association. 

For many years the Alumni of Armour Institute of Teclinology were in the habit of 
holding an annual meeting and bestoviing av^ards upon distinguished alumni of that fifty- . 
year old school. This year, however, although tribute was paid to ilrraour alumni, and 
an award of merit was given to a graduating senior of Ai'mour College of Engineering 
division of Illinois Tech, the occasion v/as much in the nature of a farev.'ell party to 
the old association. 

According to J. Warren McCaffrey, '^prominent loop patent attorney and ali;imni 
president, the association as a whole took action to foiTa a negotiating committee for 
the express purpose of dissolving the present Araiour Alumni group in favor of forming 
a nev; organization to be knovvTi as the Alur^ini Association of Illinois Institute of 
Technology, merging the former with the Lewis Alumni Association, 

The v;hole affair may be traced back to the summer of 1940 when the trustees of 
Armour Institute of Technology and Lewis Institute took final action to merge the tiTO 
to form Illinois Institute of Technology. Following this action the separate alumni 
organizations undertook to study the situation so far as alumni affairs were concerned, 
and the committee taking such action, reporting last night, recommended that represent- 
atives of both organizations and representatives from classes of the merged schools 
already graduated, notably the classes of Illinois Institute of Technology graduated 
in February 1941 and those graduating in June 1941s meet to formulate plans for the 
formation of the Alumni Association of Illinois Institute of Technology. The recom- 
mendation was accepted and it seems reasonable to expect that action will be taken 
shortly to form the new association.

Speakers at the meeting included James D. Cunningham, chairman of the Board of 
Trustees of Illinois Tech, who explained the action currently und3r-.my to raise suff- 
icient endcment to construct a new ^3;000j000 campus for Illinois Tech, H. T. Heald, 
President of the Institute, explained the combined educational program of the Institute 
and its effect upon the community. Nathaniel Leverone, noted Chicago hujnorist, enter- 
tained the guests. The combined Glee Club and Orchestra of the Institute presented 
a short concert. 

Awards for distinguished service both to the conimunity, the school, and to indus- 
try v/ere made to three alumni and a senioi' of Ai'mour College. The Armour Alumni 
Service Award Key was presented to Roy M. Henderson, class of 1902, electrical engi- 
neer, and vice-president of United Engineers and Constructors, Inc., Chicago. 
According to J. Tfarren McCaffrey, President of the Association, the award was made in 
"recognition of the loyal and v.'illing service he has rendei'ed in the interests of 
the Alumni Association of iii'-mour Institute of Technology." 

Robert I, Wischnick, prominent President of fiischnick-TiiTipeer, New York City, 
and William F. Sims, chief electrical engineer of Chicago's Commonwealth Edison 
Company, received joint s.wards for "distinguished service" to their pi'ofessions. The 
citations, according to President McCaffrey, were for "distinguished services that 
reflected credit upon themselves and their alma raa.ter by outstanding accomplishments 
in their particular fields." 

Robert Wisciinick graduated from Armour Institute of Technology as a chemical 

engineer in 1914 and built the largest industry in existence today in the carbon 

black field. William Sims gl-aduated from Armour Institute in 1897 as an electrical 

engineer, served in the United States Army during the Spanish-American War, and has 

served with Commonwealth Edison since 1916, 

The final award of the evening was made to Charles McAleer, Jr., chemical engi- 
neer, June 1941. The award was made in recognition of his outstanding abilities as 
a student, both from the standpoint of scholastic ability and extra- corricular acti- 
vities, as a student in the Armour College of Engineering division of Illinois 
Institute of Teclinology,

TECHNOLOGT-VIC. 4-600 

RELEASE: FOR SATURDAY 5/3/4-1 

In a post season meeting the IlliriOis Tech track team named Wayne McCullough, 
6650 Van Buren Street, Hamriiond, Indiana, and Richard Barry, 2201 W. Cortez Street, 
Chicago, to serve as Co-Captains for next year's campaign. 

V/ajTne McCullough is the first of Tech's co-operative students in mechanical 
engineering to achieve this honor. V<hile attending Hammond High School in Hamjnond, 
Indiana "Mac" ran the iaile in 4-s37 and the half mile in 25 04,.3. To date, he has not 
broken those marks in collegiate competition but has vron the majority of his races, 
showing the excellence of his high school records. Wayne might easily be called a 
coaches dream for he does almost everything, and does it well. He fills in the teams 
weak spots. 

In the track events, one may count on "Mac" to run a 56 second quarter, 2; 08 
half, 4;4-2 mile, and a lOt/^6 ty<o mile. In the field events Y/ayne vd-ll high jump 
5' 6", and pole vault 11 « . 

Reporting for practice late in the spring of 194-0 McCullough scored 22^ points 
in three meets and has scored seventy points this past season. A refinement to his 
old high school conditioning would undoubtedly iriike hi;n a standout star but his fichol- 
astic progrfun on the co-operative system of eight alternate weeks of work and school 
restrict his workouts. While working, Wayne is employed in the maintalnence machine 
shop of the American Steel Foundries in Hammond, Indiana, On the campus, he is an 
active member of Alpha Sigma Phi social fraternity, 

Richard Barry, a j^jJlior in chemical engineering, shares the Captaincy, and 
should prove to be a great organizer. ?Jhile a student at McKinley High School in 
Chicago, Dick organized, coached, taid managed McKinley' s first track squad besides 
playing tackle for the football squad. In those days Dick specialized in the pole 
vault but competed in everything. Nov/adays, however, he confines himiself to timber 
topping.

This announcement was made by President H. T. Heald, who revealed the fact that 
this commencement will be the first of the recently formed Illinois Tech. 

Because of the exceptionally large class of graduates. Institute officials, 
according to President Heald, found it necessary to change the locale of Commencement 
Exercises to the Civic Opera House. In former years, each of the separate Institu- 
tions v/ere in the habit of holding exercises in school assembly halls or such places 
as the Goodman Theater and the Museum of Science and Industry. IVith the merger, how- 
ever, the combined senior classes totaled such, a large number that it was necessary 
to make arrangements for a larger auditorium. 

Baccalaureate Services, traditionally one of the most colorful services preced- 
ing actual commencement will be held in famous Central Chtirch. Tlie Reverend Harold 
Ruopp, minister of Central Church, ?;ill deliver the Baccalaureate Sermon. The theme 
of his Sermon will be "He Took It Upon Himself". 

Albert Hawkes will address approximately 360 graduating students during commence- 
ment exereises. Among these are included 125 students in arts and sciences of the 
Levds Institute of Arts and Sciences division, 207 students of the Armour College of 
Engineering division, and 27 graduate students in engineering. In addition to this 
number, the Institute will also present three honorary degrees. The names of the 
recipients of the honorary degrees have not as yet been released.

i-ROM; ALEXAl-JDER SCHREIBER RE: GOLF BALL RESEARCH PROGR/Ji BY 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF ARf/IOUR RESEARCH FOUNDi'.TION FOR 

TECHKCLOGY-VIC. 4-600 UNITED STATES GOLF ASSOCIATION 

FOR RELEASE: AFTER PRESS CONFEREI-ICE 
9; 30 A.IvL - 6/2/41 

Every golfer's gcLfne in the United vStates, including the "dub" as vrell as the 

jiournament player, will eventually be influenced by a series of researches currently 

mdenvajr by scientists of the Armour- Research Foundation at Illinois Institute of 

rechnology - 

Today, Rlonday, June 2, 1941, the scientists revealed that for the past tvro years 

bhey have been cariyi^-6 o^'t researches on golf balls to determine their carrying dis- 

bance, upon irons to determine standards for loft, on golf ball covers to determine 

:hGir thickness and qiialities to resist cutting by irons, and a host of other studies. 

Announcement of the v;ork that the Foundation has been carrying on at Illinois 

Cech for the United States Golf Association \-;as made by Harold Vagtborg, its director. 

le revealed that the United States Golf Association called upon the Foundation to 

arry on a scientific program of research for the express piirpose of eliminating "the 

iiscrepancies that exist in the performance of golf balls." 

According to Mr. Vagtborg, as a result of these researches, "the rules of the 

J.S.G.A. will control the distance qualities of the golf ball by providing for a fixed 

neasure of actual performance. This control ?dll result in 'freezing' the carrying 

qualities of the ball at approximately the present maximum of most fi.rst grade balls 

low on the market." 

The freezing of the ball, according to the Association, at approximately its 

present limit of flight should accomplish several objectives which the Association has 

Long had in mind. They are as follovi-ss 

1. It should check further outmoding of golf courses as regards length. Thus, 

it should prevent clubs (and therefore, their individual members) from, having to 

pay more for golf on the score of redesigning and lengthening courses, which in 

the past has sometimes required purchase of more land and payment of larger taxes 



-2- 

2. It should restrict the distance walked and the time required to play a round 
of golf to the point of the player's comfortable endurance. 

3. It should result in greater emphasis on individual playing by promoting uni- 
formity in the manufactured elements of the game. 

U' It should tend to standardize golf and golf courses by controlling a factor, 

which, if not controlledj could distort the whole game as now laio^iTi. 

The golf research laboratories of Foundation affiliate at Illinois Tech are in 
:he main, Standards La.boratories. In order to provide adquate testing equipment, 
i'oundation scientists found it necessary to design and develop proper equipment. This 
fork was carried out under the direction of Dr. Carl G. Anderson, research mechanical 
jngineer. Most notably accomplishment of Dr. Anderson and his associates is the design 
md construction of a cSri'^'ing machine which automatically "tees" the bail, drives it, 
Lnd measures its velocil^' and then segregates the ball according to speed. 

Assisting Dr. Anderson, specifically in the design and construction of intricate 
electrical circxiits used to measure the speed of the ball was D. E. Richa.rQson, researcl 
jlectrical engineer for the Foundation. 

The machine according to Dr. Anderson, consists of thi'ee main units, each serving 
I distinct and separate purpose. The first unit is used to automatically "tee" the 
3all tyid drive it with a "sock" comparable to that of a good golfer. The second unit 
:onsists of a twelve (12) inch diameter tube, fifteen (15) feet long, through which 
:he ball passes after being hit. This unit also includes the electrical timing equip- 
lent for measuring the speed of the ball. The third unit is a receiver which "absorbs 
'h.& energy of the ball and drops it into a collector wherein there is located the 
lutomatic segregating device used only in cases where large volumes of balls are rtm 
-n a continuous test. 

^, The performance of the machine is a very simple operation, relatively speaking, 
ilthough its design required many hours of labor and its operation required many hours 
:.o perfect. Balls are dropped into a hopper at random a,nd not touched by human hands

mtil fired and segregated in the collector. A tjpical ball, for example, is lifted 
!"rom the hopper by a notched rotating disk and dropped onto an inclined runu-ay. From 
here it rolls onto a moving chain equipped v/ith pairs of fingers that hold the ball 
just as on a tee. This chain moves the ball into position in front of the driving head. 

The driving head is rigidly attached to a rotating heavj' disk T/hich revolves at 
I speed of 1800 revolutions per minute or at a linear speed of 145 feet per second, 
[lirough a system of delicate gearing the chain V'/ith the fingers carrying the ball is 
jynchronized to the motion of the disk carrying the driving head, so that the ball is 
.n the verj'' center of the head when it (the ball) is struck. 

After leaving the face of the driving head, the ball passes through the 15 foot 
;ute to the receiver vvhere it is segregated. On its v/ay to the receiver the ball 
nterrupts delicate photo-elocti'ic light beams at pre-deterrained distances and thus the 
;peed of the ball j.s measured. Even thougJi balls of varying degrees of hardness travel 
varying trajectories, the timing device is so designed and constructed that regardless 
>f the relative trajectory in which the ball travels, it is possible to time its flight.

Three leaders in American top-strata industrial and engineering fields will 
receive honorary degrees of doctor of engineering at the first joint comniencement of 
Armour and Lewis divisions of Illinois Institute of Technology Thursday, June 12, at 
B;15 p.m. in the Civic Opera House, 

President H.T, Heald will present the degrees to Charles Donald Dallas j of the 
Armour class of 1902^ president of Revere Copper and Brass, Incorporated, of New York| 
Richard Henry \?hitehead, of the Lewis class of 1908, president and general manager of 
The Nevj Haven Company, New Haven, Connecticut; and Joshua. D'Esposito, famous Chicago

This presentation will follow awarding of 360 bachelor and graduate degrees

in the country, enrolling approximately 10,000 persons. 

Dallas, who v7orked even while attending school, stcirted in the business i^orld at 
$3.00 per v;eek as an office boy. Ee was employed by the Anerican Brass Company for 
many years. In 1908 he and his father, with a capitalization of $10,000, incorporated 
in Chicago as A. C. Dallas and Son, acting as sales representatives for several east- 
ern copper mills.

"Illinois Institute of Technology, in coiroion with other schools of its type, 
is today an active and essential partner of government and of industry. 

"Let us look for a moment at the picture on this campus. During the current year 
the Institute is enrolling more than 4-, 000 men, most of them graduate engineers in 
special engineering courses as part of the national defense program. President Heald 
Ls our regional advisor for .fiigineering Defense Training. Here you have a partnership 
iirith government which assumes particular significance 7)hen we learn that your school 
Ls shouldering the major load of this training in the midviest. 

"Industry is the third partner in our program, and just as the government is 
iepending on industry for the production of material e;:33ential to our defense, so is 
industry depending on our technologica]. schools for the trained human product. 
Today, nearly 1,000 Chicago industries and firms, aside from employees vjho are enrollec 
is cooperative students and in evening classes, have thousands registered in these 
ingineering Defense courses. Here again Illinois Institute of Technology is proving 
Its value as a partner in the tremendous job that faces us all."

5E0M; ALEXi*iIDER SCHREIBEH RE: COfffilENCErMri' ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT tLT. 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF HEALD OF ILLINOIS TECH AT EVMSVILLE 

TECIINOLOGY-VIC. 4-600 COLLEGE, EVaNSVILLE, IKDIMA 

6/6 Al 5 8 P.M. 

Educational values of tradit.i.onal patterns are soon to be sharply scrutinized and 
tieasured by demands of a practical society, the existence of which is geared to utili- 
tarian ends. 

This T<as an indication of the nature of "The College and the Community," as out- 
Lined last night by Henry Tovmley Keald, president of Illinois Institute of Technology, 
the graduating class of Evansville College, Evansville, Indiana. Commencement 
xercises v/ere held in the college suditorium, beginning at 8 p.m. 

"I have an idea that during the next few years the educational services rendered 
3y our institutions are going to be carefully measured and analyzed," President 
leald said. 

"We have gone through a period when the public has accepted higher education as 
m end in itself, 'with a certain naive belief that if we had enough of it, everything 
fould be all right. The results have not tome out this belief, 

"It seems to me that those edvicational institutions which survive will be those 
rhich are rendering a real service. This, after all, is as it should be." 

Comments made in 1941 about the place of colleges in the community or about res- 
)onsibilities of college graduates m.ust be made in the light of the defense program, 
16 declared. 

"The function of the college in the process of education and what the college 
loes for those who devote several years of their lives to college studies has been a 
subject for continued argument," President Heald pointed out. 

"William James has said, 'The bast claim that a college education can possibly 
oake on your respect, the best thing it can aspire to accomplish for you, is this: 
that it should help you to know a good man when you see him.' 

"If this be taken as a fundamental objective of college education, I fear that 
nany of our graduates have not demonstrated their attainment to it. Certainly v/e do

hope to develop those intellectual, moral and spiritual qualities which are so necess- 
ary for a useful existence in a dernc cratlc society. 

"This requires a familiarity with the v:orld in ?;hich v/e live as well as a know- 
ledge of past human experiences dorm through the ages," he added. 

"Most important of all, in ray opinion, our graduates should have a sense of voca- 
tional direction T.'hich will enable them_ upon completion of their studies to adjust 
themselves readily to the realities of life and to take their places as active and 
productive members of a dynamic democracy," 

National defense makes education v^dth vocational direction doubly important, 
but its importance cannot be overemphasized in peace tim.es or in times Fhen there are 
defense problems, President Heald stated. 

"Industry grows only because it renders a service to the community in which it 
lives," he pointed out. 

"Colleges look to the commujnity for financial support, and to an increasing de- 
gree, private institutions will have to depiend upon v/idsspread support rather than 
occasional large benefactions from a few individuals v;ho may be actuated by sentimental 
attachments or the desire to build a monument. 

"Education institutions will have to compete with many other worthy causes for 
this type of support, and the best argument x\'ill be in the form of services rendered 
through the preparation of young people for useful citizenship," President Heald said, 

"The increasing complexity of modern civiliz?.tion, the grci-rth of technological 
developments, largely makes the world one of the engineer's building, yet it is often 
said that the engineer is less well-prepared to understand the world in which he lives 
that are his contemporaries from the arts colleges. 

"Perhaps it is true, but I am inclined to think that the confusion and lack of 
understanding which exists in the minds of so many people today is no more evidenced 
by engineers than by other segments of our population.

"Our national defense program has served to emphasize anew the importance of the 
complete and rapid development of technolorical resources along with human resources," 
tie declared. 

"Cei-tainiy the engineer who conplotely lacks understanding of the 
social and political implications of his ^vork cannot properly be expected to make the 
greatest contributions to local or national welfare in time of dire need, but neither 
can people with a general education \vho are completely ignorant of the world of 
technology in v/hich they live, be considered truly enlightened citizens." 

President Heald graduated from Vfeshington State College in 1923, taking a B, S. 
in civil engineering. THvo years lator he v.'on s.n M.S. in civil engineering from the 
Jniversity of Illinois. He is a member of Tau Beta Pi, honorary engineering fraternity, 
3.nd of Sigma Tau, Phi Kappa Phi and Chi Epsilon. 

Becoming assistant professor of civil engineering at Armour Institute in Septem- 
ber, 1927, President Heald advanced rapidly. In 1931 he was made associate professor 
and assistant to the dean. In 1933 he became dean of freslirnan. For four years 
following September, 1934-, he was professor of civil engineering and dean of the 
Institute. The establishment of a research division and the nucleus of a graduate 
program were formtilated under him. 

Made acting president in October, 1937, President Heald v/as appointed to his 
present position in May of the following year. Rapid growth and continued high stan- 
iard of administration of the Institute, culminating in formation of Illinois Institute 
Df Technology in 194-0, are greatl;;- attributable to him. 

President Heald has held a variety of offfices in the i'testern Society of Engi- 
neers and the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education. He belongs to the 
American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Public I?ork A.ssociation, American 
Association for the Advancement of Science, Adult Education Council of Chicago, Illi- 
nois Engineering Council, Industrial Relations Association of Chicago, Theta Xi, Chi-

FROM: ALEXANDER SCHREIBER REs DR, C. L. GLAPiKE, DEAN OF LEWIS 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF DIVISION OF ILLINOIS TECK, COMENCE- 

TECmiOLOGY-VIC. A600 MENT SPEAKER AT ALFRED U., ALFRED, 

NEW YORK - 6/9/4-1 

FOR RELEASE: TUESDAY, JUNE 10, 1941. 

The paradox of losing in oi'der to gain, on the hiunan scale, is the secret of a 
successful life, Dr. Clarence L. Clarke, dean of Lewis Institute of Arts and Sciences 
of Illinois Institute of Technology, last night told members of the graduating class 
of Alfred University, Alfred, New York= 

One hundred and fifth commencement exercises of the school v;ere held in the uni- 
versity auditorium. Dr. Clarke, an Alfred graduate of the class of 1906, spoke on the 
subject of "Losing or Saving a Life." He was av.'arded a doctor of laws degree by 
Dr. J. Nelson Norwood, President, a classmate. 

"Evei-y human being has an incurable longing to live sigrtif icantly, " Dr. Clarke 
said . 

"To do so he must lose his life in various vital, growing, developing institu- 
tions. An institution is but a form of associated or group activity by means of which 
needful services or desired goals or human values are produced or rendered to or for 
life. 

"They may take the form of a home, a community, a political or economic or edu- 
cational organisation." 

Self preservation is generally accounted the first law of life and seems to be 
the only law of life in periods of desperate national danger or in moments of dire 
necessities in an individual's existence, Dean Clarke observed. These times of ab- 
normal pressure should not be sam.pled as the normal or regular state of affairs, he 
counseled. 

"Some of the very best things in life are more securely achieved by not striving 
for them directly, and by not straining too strenously for them. These are the by- 
products of other consuming interest and activities. Of human institutions we can say 
much that we have said for human lives. 



.;: .,-:j:-cO " ■; .-\C, ,-'ioi iJiw t.;-:.'.' 



-2- 

"Every human institution of any stage of history or human development may 
struggle to preserve itself, strive to save itself and lose its life. Or it may lose 
itself in the process of the outgoing more and more abundant life and save itself. 

"Its continued existence depends on its growing 'vith life. The focussing of 
luman attention and energies upon the task of preserving an institution, 'vhether it be ' 
Dne of educational, economical, civic, political, religious or domestic channels, in 
i firm status quo , means death eventually for the institution. An institution, to live 
nust lose itself. To survive it must continually remake itself to be ever a readier 
aeans to the end of the more abundant life . ■' 

Instead of planning one's life for a long-term existence, he may prefer the 
temporary securities and plea,sures of the present, Dean Clarke pointed out. 

"'Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die,' maj' be selected as the guide of 
Life and living by some. Those x"ho choose it certainly vrill die. And like the beasts 
)f the field dubiously leave as a mark of their having lived only a microscopical effec 
m the faima and flora of the future and perhaps a fossil remains for some millenial 
eologist to decipher." 

Dr. Clarke, a native of Friendship, N. Y., received his Ph.B. from Alfred in 1906 
md his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1928, He was professor of education 
md philosophjr at A.lfred from 19C3 to 1910. Since that time he has served on the facul- 
ties of the University of Washington, Idaho State College, Beloit College, University 
of Chicago and the University of Michigan. He has been a professor at Lev/is Institute 
since 1928 and became dean of its School of /irts and Sciences in 1936 = 

He is a member of the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education and the 
author of "Tenure of Teachers in the Professions." His address is Post Office Box 232,

Captain Evers stated that one of the seniors had already been sworn in due to the 
act that he could not be present at commencement exercises tonight, imother of the 
raduates will not receive his com.mission tonight due to the fact that he has not as 
et recovered from a broken leg. Fourteen others who are to receive commissi. ons from 
he Navy, have deferred acceptance of their Ensign ratings because they have not as yet 
ompleted school. 

The Ensign Commissions, according to Captain Evers, are of the "special volunteer 
ype in the engineering phase of naval work" , The recipients may be called to active 
aty at any time and will enter Naval services as engineer officers in such divisions 
f the navy as the procurement division of aviation : in the ordn ance division; or in 
he engineering division . 

Although the greatest number of students to receive degrees are the regular four- 
ear engineering, architecture, and arts and science candidates, special mention must 
e made of those vjho have spent as much as 10 years in obtaining their honors, Forty- 
ine of the recipients of degrees will be candidates from the evening sessions of 
llinois Institute of Technology. Of these forty-nine candidates, four are from the 
rmour College division while forty-five are from the Lewis Institute division, 

Tv'rent3^-eight graduate degrees will be conferred by president Heald upon students 
ompleting two years of post graduate study in engineering. These degrees vdll be 
or work in architecture, science, and chemical, mechanical, electrical, and civil 
ngineering. 



The comiriencement program will begin ?fith the processional of candidates for de- 
gree,3 followed by the officers and facu].ty of the Institute. The invocation will be 
read by the Reverend Harold W. Ruopp, minister of Chicago's famous Central Church. 

Special recognition will be given talented graduates. Robert J. Mead, chemical 
engineer, will sing "Just You", by Burleigh, he will be accompanied It/ a double octet 
of seniors of the Glee Club. Gus Mustakas, chemical engineer, will deliver a violin 
solo; he will play Provost' popular INTERTAEZZO. 

After the cormnencement address by Mr. Hawkes, the President will confer degrees. 
The Recessional will be preceeded by the Benediction to conclude the commencement 
exercises.

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF AT CIVIC OPEPJi HOUSE; ALBERT W, HAvrKES, 

TECfflTOLOGY-VIG . 46OO PRES., U.S. GHAIL COLftL vSPEMER; HONOR- 

ARY DEGREES AYJARDED. 

FOR RELEASE: FRIDAY, JUl^E 13, 19^1. 

Continuance of the Aiiierican way of life depends in part on determination of the 
.94-1 graduate to announce its value to the world, Albert vJ. Ha-i'ykes, president of the 
nited States Chamber of Commerce and Congoleum-Nairn, Incorporated, last night, 
i/12/4.1 declared. 

Speaking at commencement exercises of Illinois Institute of Technology at Civic 
ipera House, Havfkes outlined his plea for vigorous jliaericanism, to be exemplified by 
iroducts of the nation's schools. His speech was titled ''Present Opportunity for 
■rained Youth . " 

Three hundred and sixty degrees were awa.rded to students of Lewis and Armour 
.ivisions of the Institute, including 28 e.dvanced degrees to graduate students. Honor- 
ry degrees of doctor of engineering ;vere bestowed on Richard Henry Whitehead, Charles 
lonald Dallas and Joshua D'Esposito. 

"One of your greatest opportunities," Havfkes told the graduates, "is to help 
lake a satisfied people, on r/hich a continuance of our iimerican way of life must 
.spend , 

"You can do it by fully Informing yourselves a.nd ty sound thinking. This 
ihould lead you to a determination to make every other citizen with whom you come in 
ontact realize that each of us has obligations. We must each make a contribution in 
bought and v:ork if vie can expect to partake of the benefits of our great orgi^nizaticn, 
he United States of ;\inerica, rtaicn r)roduces the American way of life." 

Citing Helen Keller as an example of accomplishment in spite of odds, Hawkes 
aidi 

"Let us never forget the lesson Helen Keller has taught the world. Even though 
he v;as born blind and deaf and therefore v/as unable to speak, still she sensed an 
pportunity as it touched her finger tips and lips.

m: "She not only became a success, but has become famous throughout the vrorld be- 
ause she has helped to transmit to others afflicted as she vfas a great opportunity to 
.0 things. She therefore not only benefitted herself, but has done the greater thing — 
he has served humanity in a way that, until her time and accomplishment, was consider- 
d impossible." 

Praising Lewis division of the Institute, v;here he studied at night for several 
■ears, Hav-rkes predicted rapid progress and expansion for Illinois Institute of 
'echnologj'-. He emphasized the importance of schools in the democratic ord.3r. No lack 
if opportunities for trained youth exists today, he declared, 

"In a nation of free people there alv^'ays has been, is, and alwaj^s will be, 
ipportunity for every youth who is willing to pay the price of success. In 1896, I 
an remember, I came home and told my parents I wished I had been born forty years 
ocner because all the good opportunities in the United States v/ere gone. 

"There v/as nothing left but a steady, slow grind to make a living, I added. It 
as difficult for me then to believe there vras as much or more opportunity in front 
f me as had ever been open to anyone in the preceding years of our nation's history. 

"So it is just as certain that the opportunities that are in front of you are as 
reat as a.ny that have been in front of any generation in this country. Opportunities 
ticrease alm.ost in proportion to the increase in population, the congestion of living 
onditionc, and the complexity of our society." 

James D. Cunninghajn, president of Republic Flow Meters and chairman of the board 
f trustees of the Institute, cited Dallas, B'Esposito and Wliitehead before President 
T. Heald presented their honorary degrees. 

Dallas, of the Armour class of 1902, is president and a director of Revere 
apper and Brass, Incorporated. He began in the business world as an office boy at 
3.00 per week. He xvas made president of Dallas Brass and Copper Company in 191S and 
l" his present firm in 1931.

R£: FOPJilATION OF "GAS INSTITUT:^" AS Mi 
AFFILIATE OF ILLINOIS TECH - 
$1,000,000 PR0GRAI.1. 

FOR I?,IMEDIATL RELEaSS '.. 



Illinois Institute of Technology, as a resvilt of an extensive survey conducted 
among the leading colleges and universities of the United States, has been selected 
to be the site, and its staff and administrative officers, the administrators of a 
projected INSTITUTE OF GAS TECHNOLOGY. The new "Gas Institute" ^.vill be located on 
the present campus of Illinois Tech in Chicago and Ysdll involve an expenditure of 
more than $1,000,000, exclusive of necessary additions to plant and existing equipment. 

This new program vrill provide for the creation of a separate unit at Illinois 
Tech (its pi-esent south side campus), for the purpose of conducting primarily a com- 
prehensive program of graduate instruction leading to th.e Master of Science and 
Doctor of Philosophy degrees. There will also be conducted and encouraged under this 
graduate program of instruction, fundamental and applied research pointed toY/ards the 
betterment of the future of the gas industry, according to H. T. Heald, President. 
President Heald returned yesterday from Nev; York City v.'here he had attended the final 
organisation meeting of the Trustees acting upon the affiliation of the "Gas Institute" 
with Illinois Institute of Technology. 

"Initial financing will provide funds for operating and maintenance expenses in 
the amount of at least $100,000 per year for a period of ten (10) years," eaid 
President Heuld. "These expenses will include instructional costs and regular main- 
tenance costs," he added. 



-2- 

Additional provision v/ill be made for funds to erect the necessary buildings to 
house the instructione.1 and research activities under this program. 

Actual operation is scheduled to begin September, 194-1 concurrent v/ith the open- 
ing of Illinois Institute of Technology for the regular academic year of 19A1-4-2. 
From five to ten felloYJships will be granted students for the first year of operation o 
The prcgranij however, when in complete operation, contemplates a student body of 
graduate level of from 50 to 60 students with a v/ell qualified faculty chosen for 
their competence in research and graduate instruction. 

Plans for the "Gas Institute" include the erection of buildings to house its 
activities. These buildings Virill be in addition to the new structui'es planned by 
Illinois Institute of Techjiology under its current ejcpansion program, 

T7hile not a part of the $3,000,000 special development program of Illinois Tech, 
The INSTITUTE OF GAS TECHNOLOGY project directly supplements it, according to Wilfred 
Sykes, presiderit of Inland Steel ei.nd chairman of the development com.mittee of the 
Institute's board of trustees. 

"The fact that leading gas companies across the country have chosen Illinois 
Institute of Technology as the site for this important project is, we believe, largely 
attributable to the plans which our trustees have laid for developing on this campus 
a technological training center second to none. f7e .are proceeding to launch an early 
effort to assure funds for the most urgent of our "building needs, Metallurgical, 
Mechanical, Chemical and Electrical Engineering buildings, a Library and Administra- 
tion building, and a Humanities building," said Mr. Sykes. 

I 

p- At present, according to President Heald, seventeen gas companies a.re members 

of the organization group. The decision to create the INSTITUTE OF GAS TECHNOLOGY 

at Illinois Tech came as a result of two years of investigation on the part of a 

committee of the gas industry, headed by Frank C. Smith, President of the Houston 

Natural Gas Company (Texas) , 



Mill 



-3- 

F. H= Lerch, Jr., President of the Gas Companies, Inc., of New York and chairman 
of the coTiimittee on university affiliation of the gas companies, confirmed the 
announcement of plans to create the new Institute, lb-. Lerch also formally announced 
selection of Illinois Institute of Technology' from" :he group of colleges and univer- 
sities in the United States under investigation as to capability to handle the project. 

In making announcement of the selection of Illinois Institute of Technology as 
the sponsor of the nen project, Mr. Lerch said: 

"Illinois Institute of Technology.'' impressed the gas industries' committee by its 
willingness and excellent ability to cooperate in this project. The "Gas Institute" 
will have as its primary objective the training of man power specifically for the gas 
industry. Trained exclusively on the graduate level, these men vdll have the benefit 
of the highly respected graduate school novif in existence at the Institute. 

"The scope of the curriculum, the excellence of its faculty, the character of 
the fundamental research to be underts.ken for the degree, Y.-ill be designed to make 
available the highest type of scientifically trained personnel and to broaden the 
scientific knowledge feipplicable to the solution of the problems of one of the nation's 
most important industries." 

"Such an institution as the 'Gas Institute,' said President Heald, "must necessar- 
ily have the highest standards. This v/ill necessitate a. carefully selected student 
body and faculty." 

Six principle objectives have been laid dovm to form the basis of operation of 
the "Gas Institute". First of all the founders of the nev; Institute expect it to 
be operated to "train qualified young m.en, college graduates, for entrance as valuable 
employees to the gas industries. The other five objectives are: conduct fundamental 
research; conduct applied research^ collect and distribute scientific information 
pertaining to gas research, development, investigation, and processes; as a central 
organisation to stimulate research throughout the gas industry; and, as a central 
organization to coordinate research in the gas industry." 



-A- 

Upon completion oi four years of study, the student under this program vrould 
receive the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, avrarded by Illinois Institute of Technology 

The course of study, ?;hich requires college graduation for admission, would in- 
clude three years of academic training based upon the fundamental sciences and funda- 
mental research. The fundamental science studies include organic chemistry 5 engineer- 
ing mathematics J physics j fluid flow and heat transfer 5 physical chemistry; gas techno- 
logyj chemistry of polymerization and depoljonerizationj and catalysis and surface 
chemistry. 

The curriculum also includes the equivalent of one year of academic work designed 
to give the ba.ckground of the gas industry, including operation, managem.ent and regula- 
tions of public utilities^ equipment and materials for the manufacture, storage and 
distribution of gas^ by-products of the gas industry; management problems of the gas 
industry; and other related tubject matter. 

The fourth year of the student's training will basically consist of research of 
a fundamental nature of interest to the gas industry. In addition, the student shall 
be expected to have spent at lea,.st three summers 01 r;ork in some phase of the gas 
industry. 

The administration of the "Institute of Gas Technology" will be vested in a board 
of trustees made up of representatives of the gas industry and trustees of Illinois 
Tech. At the New York meeting the following officers were elected: For chairman of 
the Board of trustees, Frank C. Smith, President of the Houston Natural Gas Company 
(Texas); for president of the Gas Institute, H. T. Heald, President of Illinois Insti- 
tute of Technology. For members of the executive committee, in addition to the chair- 
man and president, the following: Herman Russell, President, Rochester Gas and Electric 
Corporation (New York); F. H. Lerch, Jr., President, Gas Companies, Inc., New York; 
Frank H. Adams, vice-president, Surface Combustion Corporation, Toledo, Ohio; Thomas 
Drever, President, American Steel Foundries, Chicago and member of the Board of 

Trustees of Illinois Tech; and Wilfred Sykes, President of Inland Steel, Chicago and 
member of the Board of Trustees of Illinois Tech.

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF PROFESSOR OF NUTRITION MD CHAIRI;^AN 

TECfflJOLOGY-VIC. -C600 OF HOME ECONOMICS IN LEFTS DIVISION, 

EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1; /iPPLIED ARTS 

r/iERGED . 

FOR RELEiiSE. THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 19/i^l 

Dr. Ruth Covran Clouse, 56/t.3 Blackstone Avenue, nutrition expert associated vjith 
the Council on Food and Nutrition of the American Medical Association, has been 
appointed professor of nutrition and chairman of the home economics department of 
Illinois Institute of Technology'", it v.'as announced today by H. T. Keald, president. 

Prior to 1935? when she assumed her post rdth the medical body as nutrition con- 
sultant on the headquarters staff of the Council on Food and Nutrition, Dr. Clouse had 
wide experience in teaching and research fields. Her appointment is effective Septem- 
ber 1, and Vvdll make her the only vroman department chairm.an of the Institute. 

Expansion of the home economics department, a part of Lewis division of the 
Institute, to include the applied art department, v/ill m3.ke for an educational realign- 
ment expected to prove of signal benefit to students. President Heald stated. 

"For many years Lewis Institute, merged a year ago v/ith Armour Institute of Tech- 
nology," to become Illinois Institute of Technology, has been iridely knov/n for its 
home economics courses," he said, 

"Integration of courses of the enlargened home economics department with the 
curricula of Le^vis division will be greatly emphasized by the program Dr. Clouse vjill 
put into effect. Absorption of the applied art department slioula aid this end. De- 
mand for professional training of students for careers in the field of home economics, 
as well as the equipping of women for the task of expert home-making, v'ill be ansv/er- 
ed by the Institute's accent on this type of education." 

Born on Chicago's West Side, not far from Le'vis Institute, Dr. Clouse attended 

Hyde Park High School. She received a B.S. in chemdstry from the University of 

economics, 
Chicago. Both degrees were in home/ and the major field of study in each case v/as 

food nutrition. Dr. Katherine Blunt, no^^- head of Connecticut College for Fomen, 






"V-'. 



I _2- 

formerly chairman of the department of home economics of the University of Chicago, 
under whom Dr, Clouse did much of her research, wa.s a collaborator on "Ultra Violet 
Light and Vitamin D in Nutrition," a book published in 1930. 

Dr. Clouse also vorked under Dr. Lydia J. Roberts, successor to Dr. Blunt at the 
University of Chicago. On gaining her bachelor's degree, she became an instructor of 
home economics at the University of Arks.nsas (Fayetteville) . In 1922 she became 
assistant professor in the same subject at Michigan State College (East Lansing) . 

In 1927 Dr. Clouse returned to the University of Chicago, becoming assistant to 
Dr. Blunt. Chemistrj'' of foods , chemistry of nutrition and related, problems that in- 
cluded graduate classes vrere among courses taught. Dr. Clouse had the year before held 
the Ellen H. Richards scholarship and vjas thus able to mix research and classroom 
activities. 

On becoming associate professor of home economics at the University of Tennessee 
(Knoxville) in 1931, Dr. Clouse was to be engaged in the final span of teaching before 
she began vrork in 1935 for the America,n Medical Association. The sumraer of 1934- was 
spent in the depressed area of Key West, Florida, v/here first-hand contact with commun- 
ity rehabilitation aspects of nutrition gave her. valuable experience. At that time 
she y:as employed by the Florida Relief Administi^ation as home economist. 

Not only will standards of the American Dietetic Association and other profess- 
ional standard-making bodies be met but supplementar;'' training designed to give stu- 
dents the v:idest grasp of home economics practices of professional nature will be in 
force. Dr. Clouse announces in outlining the policy of her department. 

"An effort to utilize late equipment, with adaptations brought about by trends 
In large-scale cooking as well as new home methods, v/ill be made," she said. 

During Augu.st Dr. Clouse xidll make a survey trip through prominent schools of 
lome economics and institute if dietetic study on the Atlantic seaboard before assum- 
-ng duties at Lewis division.

Ampliiying President Keald's words on integration of the home economics program 
with other parts of the curricula, Dr. Clouse said she hoped sacli freshman girl might 
arrange her schedule to include one or more courses in home economics. Instead of de- 
clinittg in a day of prepared foods, the attention of women in the home to dietary and 
related problems must necessarily be on the increase, she stated. 

In line with the shift at Lewis division from quarterly to semester arrangement of 
class hours effective in September, courses in home economics will be on that basis. 
■ Classes in introduction to nutrition, food study, selection and costs of food, 

food for the family, tearoom management, food preparations in large quantities, 
dietetics, experimental cookery, institutional accounting and pui^chasing, nutrition in 
disease, clothing, study of clothing materials, millinery, problems in textile buying, 
dress design, hom.e nursing and sanitation, plan, selection a.nd care of the house, child 
study, the family and its relationships, child welfare, vocational home economics, 
methods in home economics education and consumer education movements v;ill be taught. 

Courses in the past proper to the dep3.rtment of applied art, now to be taught as 
part of the home economics curriculum, are drawing and composition, design, costume 
desigri, interior decoration, applied design, color theories, ceramdcs, model and 
model making, and origin and properties of clays.

ILLINOIS TECH 5 ADDRESSES MEGHAIvHCAL ENGI- 
NEERING i'/lEET AT PURDUE, THURSDAY, 7/3/4-1 

FOR IMvIEDIATE RELEASE 



Dr. Linton E. Grinter, 1321 E. 56th Street, vice president and dean of the grad- 
uate school of Illinois Institute of Technology, will be a speaker Thursday (7/3/4-1) 
at the closing meeting of the Slimmer session on mechanical engineering education at 
Purdue University. 

His address, to be delivered at 11 a.m.,, will be titled "Encouraging Selected 
Students to Graduate Study." Leading figures in the Aivierican mechanical engineering 
field have been convened since Sunday under triple sponsorship of the Society for Pro- 
motion of Engineering Education, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and 
Purdue University. * 

In addition to his graduate school function, Di'. C-rinter has been recently named 
acting head of the department of mechanics, to succeed Dr. Charles E. Paul, lately 
retired. 

The nature of graduate study, the lack of emphasis on graduate study in mechani- 
cal engineering, what persons that should take gradua.te study and 'Nhj, what a graduate 
school can do for a student, how graduate classes should be conducted, emd the role of 
research as a part of graduate study will be toucJied upon by Dr. Grinter. 

"Students ordinarily undertake graduate study because of one oi' the follov.-ing 
factors — the urge to learn, the economic advantage and prestige inherent, the en- 
couragement of a company for which they may work, and dissatisfaction with a situation

in which they find themselves," Dr. Grinter believes. 

"It is not too often clearly understood that graduate study is not a fifth year 
of undergraduate work, not an opportunity to study new fields in a search for culture, 
and not a substitute for actual practice of the profession in the field. 

"It is, hov;ever, a fundamental study of the scientific background of engineering 
with applications, and should always be regarded as such." 

Graduate study is able to perfol'm certain services for the institution which 
Sponsors it. It can, and does, develop research specialists, prepare teachers, develop 
ability to investigate and stimulate professional consciousness, Dr. Grinter declared. 

Dr. Grinter was educated at th6 University of Kansas and the University of 
Illinois, and combines experience in the engineering departments of large corporations 
with experience in educational institutions. He has made outstanding contributions to 
basic knowledge in structural engineering. Rc'om 192S to 1937 he was Professor of 
Structural Engineering at the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, carrying 
on research and teaching structural engineering. He came to Armour Institute in 1937 
as Director of the Department of Civil Engineering and Dean of the Graduate Division, 

Dr. Grinter is a member of Sigma Xi, Tau Beta Pi, /iraerican Society of Civil 
Engineers, and Society for Promotion of Engineering Education, and is a registered 
Structural Engineer in Illinoisj He is the author of a standard series of textbooks 
as well as many technical papers^ and although only thirty-eight years of age, has al- 
ready been an officer of many national and local engineering societies. Under his

RE; ilPPOINTIdEKT OF NEH FACULTY TO LEWIS 

DIVISION OF ILLINOIS TECH; NEW EQUIPIffiNT 
AND CURRICULUM CHMGES. 

FOR IMffiDIATE RELEASE, 



Preparations for orjening of the forty-sixtli scholastic year of Lewis division 
of Illinois Institute of Teclinology in September are in full svmig as laboratories 
and classrooms are nevvly outfitted and curriculum and faculty additions are announced. 

Dr, C„ L. Clarke, P, 0. Box 232, Winnetka, Illinois, Lewis dean, in 8.miouncing 
the schols.stic year would open September 15, 194-1, also disclosed the quarterly divi- 
sion of the school year had been discarded in favor of the semester division, once in 
force at Lewis, 

This change in structure of the school year will bring Levids classes into con- 
formance with those at Armour campus, where the semester system is traditional, he 
said. Aside from the benefit of unanimity of class schedules effected, the undergrad- 
uate body is expected to gain greatly in having a common holiday and social calendar 
vjith Armour students. 

Appointm.ent of a home economics department head and consolidation of the depart- 
ment with that of applied arts will be major developments of the new semester. 

Effective Septem.ber 1, Dr. Ruth Cowan Clouse, 564-3 Blackstone Avenue, nutrition 
consultant on the headquarters staff of the Council on Food and Nutrition of the 
American Medical Association, will become professor of nutrition and chairman of the 
home economics department.

Dr. Clouse, vfho v/ill be thus the only woma-n department chairman of the Institute, 
has had wide experience in teaching and research fields. A native of Chicago's West 
Side, Dr. Clouse attended Hyde Park High School. She received a B.S. in chemistry 
from the University of Chicago in 1918, 

Dr. Clouse had been encouraged by teachers to take as many home economics course: 
as possible and thus she was ready for graduate viork in the field of dietetics and 
nutrition. She received an M.S. in home economics in 1922 and a Ph.D. in the same sub- 
ject in 1933. 

Under Dr. Katherine Blunt, now president of Connecticut College for Women and 
formerly chairman of the department of home economics at the Unii'^ersity of Chicago, 
Dr. Clouse vras able to establish herself as an authority in the field of vitamin study 
They collaborated on a volume, which ?/as standard in its field and is now out of print 
called "Ultra Violet Light and Vit^amin D in Nutrition." It was published in 1930. 
' Dr. Clouse also worked under Dr. Lydia Roberts, successor to Dr. Blunt at the 
University of Chicago. On gaining her bachelor's degree, she became an instructor of 
home economics at the University of Arkansas. In 1922 she became assistant professor 
in the same subject at Michigan State College. 

In 1926 Dr. Clouse held the Ellen H. Richards scholarship at the University of 
Chicago and was enabled to pursue graduate work at that tim.e. She became assistant tc 
Dr. Blunt the following year, teaching chemistry of foods, cliemistry of nutrition and 
related subjects. She was able also at that time to mix research work with her teach- 
ing career. 

On becoming associate professor of home economics at the University of Tennessee 
in 1931, Dr. Clouse was to be engaged in the final span of teaching before she began 
v;ork in 1935 for the American Medical Association. The summer of 1934- was spent in 
the depressed area of Key West, Florida. At that time she was employed by the Floriut 
Relief Adjninistration and received first-hand contact with community rehabilitation 
aspects of nutrition.

Next month Dr, Clouse v.'ill aake a swing through eastern collegiate campuses in an 
effort to check on latest developments in the hoDie economics field. 

The department of applied arts, for many years autonomous, v«'ill be combined with 
that of home economics at the opening of the semester. The following classes will 
be taught in the enlarged home econom.ics department: 

Introduction to nutrition, food study, selection and costs of food, food for the 
fa.mily, tearoom management, food preparations in large quantities, dietetics, experi- 
mental cookery, institutional accounting and purchasing, nutrition in disease, cloth- 
ing, study of clothing materials, millinery, problems in textile buying, dress design, 
home nursing and sanitation, child study, the family and its relationship, child wel- 
fare, vocational home economics, methods of home economics education and consumei- 
education movement sj 
" Drawing and composition, design, costumie design, interior decoration, 3.pplied 
design, color theories, cex'amics, model and model making, and origin and properties 
of clays. 

Complete refurnishing of the organic chemistry laboratories, vdth the addition 
of equipment for m.icroscopic study, and the supplementing of thj.e biology laboratories 
with specialized measuring and filing instruments, are prominent features of the 
school's refurnishing.

REs NEW EQUIPfiENT FOR LABS OF ARIffiUR 
COLLEGE OF HnIGINEERING OF ILLINOIS 
TECHj ADDITIONS TO FACULTY, CURRI- 
CULUM CHANGES o 

FOR IMIEDIATE RELEASE. 



Operations that vfill leave the physical plant of Armour College of Engineering 
of Illinois Institute of Technology with a shiny, morning face and curriculiam changes 
that will answer student demand for more intensive study, featured a report yesterday 
of H. T. Heald, president. 

When incoming freslimen, some of then sons and grandsons of graduates, walk dovm 
campus paths in September, they will see a campus without too strict a resemblance to 

^ that of their sires. Innovations likevirise will extend to courses of study, 

i 

President Heald's report details a campus beautified by planting of more than 

one hundred Ainerican elms. More than three hundred per cent increase over last year 

of shaded, greensT.irard area, extending north, east and south of 33rd and Federal Street, 

is noted. Complete refurbishing of classrooms and laboratories is itemized. 

Most important physical additions, however, are la^boratory accretions v^hich wi^l 
modernize much existing equipment. The mechanical engineering laboratory of venerable 
Machinery Hall and the foundry shops have been particularily benefitted. 

One curriculum change is in the architecture department, where a four year 
course, granting a bachelor of science in architecture degree, viill be replaced by a 
five-year course granting a bachelor of architecture degree. At present, two other 
five-year courses exist at Illinois Tech. One, a cooperative course in mechanical

engineering, is taught at Arraour campus. Tlie other , a cooperative course in business 
administration, is taught at Lev/is cajnpus. 

Constant demand by students for a five-year course in architecture led to adop- 
tion of the longer study plan. Difficulty in absorbing theory while paying sufficient 
attention to actual designing and structure \Tas the basis of complaints. Little time 
for specialization ivas permitted by other requirements of the architecture course, in 
the view of students. 

Specialization during the fifth year will be in architecture and design or city 
and regional planning, the latter subjects arousing great interest because of architec- 
tui-al tendencies in those directions and because of municipal rebuilding as ci probable 
'consequence of present destruction in Europe and Asia. The new architecture progre^m 
will allow students to adopt one or more elective subjects each semester during the 
last three years. 

Tv/o other important curriculiim developments are announced. For the first time 
a bachelor of science degree in industrial engineering ?/ill be given. Also, civil and 
mechanical engineering students, interested in aeronautics, will be able to receive 
bachelor of science degrees isi their fields with axi aeronautics option introduced to 
meet demand caused 'Oy defense prcgr^im activities. 

Henrj'- Post Datton, 2242 Pioneer Road, Evanston, Illinois, professor of business 
management and dean of the evening division, has been named head of the department of 
industrial engineering and administration. Receiving his B.S. in electrical engineer- 
ing at University of Michigan in 1914- , he taught at Northv/e stern University from that 
date until 1933. In 1933 Dutton became a lecturer at Armour Institute and was soon 
named professor, business and management comprising his field. 

Special tra.ining in problems of production and the ever-increasing variations 

of scientific business administration, particularily as they effect engineering, v;ill 

be accented in the new department's courses. Business law, organization and control, 

statistics, cost analysis, marketing and labor problems will be related to the degree 
in this program.

The courses granting a bachelor of science with aerone-utics option v;ill answer 
clamor by undergraduates to allow civil and mechanical engineering students, once 
basic training in the first two years is completed, to acquire background in classes 
where aircraft design, aeronautical engines, aeronautical laboratory, meteorology, 
airplane stress analysis and related subjects can be studied. 

Rounding out changes in engineering curricula, a degree in electrical engineer- 
ing will be provided with an option in communications, again indicating that another 
plane of studs'- has been made impera.tive by national defense efforts. Certain courses, 
required in the past for the electrical engineering degree, can be replaced by those 
concerning radio, television and related = phenomena. 

English requirements for freshmen and sophomores have been changed. Freslimen 
will be required to take English for three hours per week, instead of the previous two 
for a single year. Sophomores will be required to take three hours a week for one 
semester, these to be devoted to an elective subject chosen from the history and back- 
ground of literature, science or a foreign language. 

Additions to equipment in Machinery Hall include a turbo-generator, pipes to tes' 
pressure drop in pipelines, and instruments for measuring loss of heat from pipes 
covered with various types and thicknesses of insulating material. 

Three one-hundred-foot pipes have been installed along the ceiling of pressure 
rooms for measurement of pressure drops in transmission of liquids or gasses. Four 
sections of pipe have been installed to measure heat transfer through insulation. 
I Change of objective of a course in foundry has been followed by addition of 
equipment to fit the new patterns. Engineering aspects of foundry work, rather than 
traditional manual arts connected v/ith it, call for a concentration of physical tests 
with a minimum of moulding practice. Testing of foundry raw and unfinished material, 
together with the control of molding sands, chemical composition of cast metals, and 
most economical and efficient methods of handling materials, are covered.

Recent equipment added includes a tensile strength testing machine, a transverse 
strength testing mach_ine for metals and sand cores, a gas melting furnace for ferrous 
metals, a gas--fired oven for cores, a tool crib for storing of patterns and tools, and 
a new moulding bench. ■ ' 

The civil engineering department i-ecentlA?" installed a 60,000 pound Reihle testing 
machine in a laboratory, where shortly a 120,000 hydraulic testing machine will also 
be housed- They total about $14,000. In the cement laboratory of the department 
autoclave for testing soundness of cement has been added. For use in the aeronautics 
option course, a stripped-doi\Ti Waco plane, recently added, v.'ill be used, 

A new, completelj^-equipped organic chemistry laboratory, situated in Chapin Hall, 
has been furnished for the chemistry department. The physics department, one of whose 
teachers is working with a colleagnae of the chemistry department, has furnished an 
infra-red spectrometer at about |;5,000 cost. An electrostatic pressure tank generator, 
which effects bombardments of atom.s, is in progress with a.n estimated final cost of 
$7,000. Various equipment for study of electronics has been added. 

Approximately $2,000 worth of equipment for study of catalytic reactions has been 
put in use in the electrical engineering department.

RE: GALI? /JII.IOUR, NORTFF.'OODS CLASSROOM OF 
ILLINOIS TECH AT MINOCQUA, WISCONSIN, 
CLOSES 27th SEASON. 

FOR IMiiEDIATE RELEiVSE 



Modern applications of t;cienco hr.ve made the v.rorld smaller, armies of modern 
diets, tors have made continents lose their vastness, but the earth will be measui'ed by 
civil engineers as long as it can be surveyad. 

The force of this trvitn hangs like a halo over Camp Airmour, TJisconsin northvroods 
summer classroom of the civil engineering department of Illinois Institute of Techno- 
logy. Thei-e last vveek, in the primeval stillness of pine and oirch forests that rim 
Upper Trout Lake> north of Minocqua, the twenty- seventh season of the camp came to an 
end. 

Seventeen civil engineering students of the Institute bade farevrell to an inten- 
sive six-weeks course of what the school catalogue calls, prosaically, "Field Practice 
in Siirveying, Civil Engineering 203." For them, as it had for more than tlx hundred 
student predecessors at Camp i^J^mour, the most romantic and colorful e^rperience of 
school days had come to an end. 

Little of the prosaic was s.ttached to long days spent deep in the timber coun- 

ncver 
try's lovely patchwork of lakes and rivers. Per haps /again, as it had never before, 

the pursuit of credit hours would be so intimately linked with the physical sym.bols 

of the good, the true and the beautiful. 

Presiding genius of the camp, which has always been regarded by undergraduates 

of Armour College of Engineering as something liko the Institute's spiritual capitol, 



-2^ 

is tallj solid, serene John Corne].ius Penn, 10120 Lafayette Avenue, professor of civil 
engineering, a graduate of Armour's class of 1905, 

A teacher at the Institute since graduation,. Professor Penn is a 60-7ear- 
old native Hollander, who came to America as a child, grer; up in the Middle West, 
and rsmembers when the civil engineering department of vhat is now th.3 largest engi- 
neering school in the United States had tx^o raeir-bers other than himself, both of whom 
had been his teachers. 

Civil engineering, and particularly the surveying facet of it, make up the 
heart of Joiin Cornelius Penn. 

Engineers a^'e 3. proud race, none more so than civil engineers. Tney survey 
the e.arth, measuring its contours, deviations and scope, and of all their profes;;ion 
they are most prone to feel they ov>m it. After militc-ry engineering, which dates to 
ancient times, civil engine aring is the oldest branch of the general field. 

Professor Penn, a patriarch with a schoolman's patience and precision and 
none of his fustiness, to a remarkable extent is Camp Armour. It was founded by the 
lato, legendar7y" Professor Alfred £. Phillips, ^'.'hose local career began with the 
school's in 1894- . 

Melville Baker Wells, novr emeritus professor of civil engineering, succeeded 
Professor Phillips as depa.rtment chairmsji, and vras in turn succced.ed by Professor 
Penn, who had sat under both as a student. 

Dr. L. E. Grinter, 1321 E. 56th Street, now vice president of the Institute, 
eaid Professor Phil C. Huntly, 2c:;l Northwood Road, Riverside, Illinois, present 
chairman, and mayor of Riverside, followed Professor Penn as heads of the department. 

Though nominal charge of Camp Armour resides in the head of the civil engi- 
neering department, Phillips, TTells and Penn have been the trinity supplying its 
vertebrae. Since 1934- the last has been in continuous stev,'ardship of the camp, and 
for m.o3t of the years Phillips and Wells were in charge, he was their first assistant.

The present site oi' Gair.p Armour, a triangle 01" land leased from the state 
conserx'^ation commission j whose broadest hypotenuse, about half-a-block long, faces 
west from a seventy-foot bluff on the upper portion of Trout Lake, occupies terrain 
belonging in the 'nineties to a lum.ber compc.ny„ Its one-track railroad ran diagonally 
through where is now situated the dining room of Alfred E. Phillips Hall, largest of 
the camp's eight buildings. 

Under the direction of Phillips, and from Penn's design, erection of the 
m.ain hall in 1914., named for Phillips since his death in 1931, was begun. It was com- 
pleted the following year, but modern history of Camp /irmour is reckoned from 1914- , 
;vhen tents were pitched to house students and faculty. When the six-vreek term of 
instruction v^as over that summer, every hand in camp vrorked on construction of the 
main hall. 

Pre-modem history of Camp Arm.our begins with the first civil engineering 
department camp, pitched at Luddngton, Michigan, in 1908. T^:jo short periods were 
spent in other sections of Michigan. 

One v;as at Faithorn, another at Kremlin from 1909 to 1912. Death of a stu- 
dent bj drovming beneath a dam at the latter campsite ended the Midhigan period. No 
fatality has ever marred the Wisconsin years. 

Lower Tomahav;k Lake, near Minocqua, attracted Professor Phillips in 1913, 
his work-and-play caravan follovvdng him. there to laaJce a fresh start for Camp /irmour. 
An inspection of the entire n3lghborhood, stretcli-ing to the bordering peninsula of 
Michigan on the north, discovered Upper Trout Lake as the promised land. There in 
1914- a stout oak was cut to a flagpole, painted Tvhite, and flags of the United States 
and Armour were run up. 

All permanent buildings now standing vrero completed in 191^-, excepting the 
main hall, v/hich was of tile block construction, unfinished, then believed to be the 
latest in fireproof construction. Other buildings built of wood included a large boa+ 
house, which housed a good-sized launch and several rowboats and canoes. 



O'f". 



-A- 

Because before the VToi'ld War lack of paved roads mp.de much of the Ic^ke country of 
northern Wisconsin almost inpenetrahle for average use. Camp Armour depended on its 
launch to carry food and supplies from a railroad depot many miles south on the lake. 
Overland passage was possible but discouraging. 

The original boathouse, once the launch passed out of need and service, was cut to 
half its size. No other important change h_as been made in the physical properties of 
the place. Phillips Hall, a two-stars'" structure with eaves open at the top for hot- 
Y/eather ventilation, connected from the beginning to a large annex used for a kitchen. 

The Hall's dining room, able to seat forty persons com-fortably, is almost one- 
half of the large dovmstairs floor, also given over to an office, bedi'ooms, the stu- 
dent social room v;ith fireplace, various nooks and crannies. 

The upper floor, opening off broad stairs at the rear of the Hall, is in effect 
a large dormitory, though its eight wood partitions reaching half vuay up to the 
V-roof, form separ3,te rooms, securing rjrivacy to occupants. Students ordinarily 
occupy four cabins grouped about the Hall, each accomjnodating five or six persons. 
Professor Penn and his teaching assistant, student stev/ards and resident cooks, togeth 
with non-student guests, are housed in Phillips Hall. 

An ice house has a roof in common with a carpentry shop and lies close to a "kill' 
house, where student batchers prepare whole sides of beef or lamb or sides of bacon 
and pork for attention of the kitchen. Freshljr- caught pike, bass or muskellmige share 
space in the ice house. Like an excl:.mation point to emphasize rusticity, the inevit- 
able well lies across the diameter of the circle form.ed by the buildings. 

Student esprit, often thought to be an elusive quality in engineering colleges 
where class progTams minimize student recreo.tion and social life, flowers at Camp Armoi 
like the wild vines matted across and around the exterior of Phillips Hall. Names of 
those v^ho have belonged to the good feli.ovrship of the camp since its first days stare 
down from the Hall's wood plaques, ornamented fireplace lintels, the tops of hard-oak 
tables and, in fact, from every spot where wood can be carved to protest against Time.

The present summea-'s generation of Canp Ai'mour residents observes a regimen identi- 
cal to that of the earliest. Forty-five hours of school work a week, vvith several 
hours of note preparation a few nights of each week, is the rule for students. At 
present the field course in surveying is offered to those who have completed their 
sophomore year of engineering studies. Years ago it was tied to the end of the fresh- 
man year. 

The average age of an undergraduate who spends his summer at Camp Armour is 
eighteen. Hov.'ever, it often happens that juniors, and, on occasion, seniors, are to 
be found among those present. Since this course is compulsory, no would-be civil 
engineer ever tries to dodge it. Circumstances sometimes make it necessary that a 
student take it later tha.n his sophomore year and alloifance is made in given C3.ses. 

There is no prevailing sanity test for admission to the civil engineering depart- 
ment. But if a student should O/cpress dislike of the Camp Armour summer course in a 
public place he woul.d probably be adjudged insane by his felloes. 

Professor Penn's course, which he has in past years taught vcith the aid of one 
or two department colleagues, this year had for an assistant teacher Richard J. llruda, 
2115 S. Ridgeland Avenue, Berv.ryii, Illinois, a June honor graduate of Armour College of 
Engineering of the Institute. As a juT'-ior, Rruda spent his undergraduate compulsory 
hours at Gs.mp ili'mour; a.s a senior, he returned to be one of two camp stewards whose 
duty it is to conduct much of the administration of the campj and this summer, as a 
graduate, he returned with his recent bride to demonstrate what he could teach in the 
tradition of Professor Penn. 

Four semester hours of credit are given for the follov/ing program at Camp /irm.ours

Determinatioii of meridian and latitude by solar observation ^ and laying out a 
meridian from observation upon Polaris; problems in higmvay and railway location, in- 
cluding running of preliminary lines, taking topography, running in lines from paper 
location, and laying out simple curves and spirals » 

The formal outlines oi phases of a course in surveying give little hint of the 
large adventure and zest of conquest to be experienced in the field. Tlie entire 
Northern Highland State Forest tract, of which the immediate ten square miles sur- 
rounding Upper and Lov.'er Trout Lake are Gamp Armour's classroom, is sometimes called, 
laughingly, "Pennsylvania," as a reflection of the tremendous influence Professor Penn 
has had on the eritire neighborhood. 

This part of Wisconsin is overlapped by the Paul Bunyan legends that have come 
doOTi from Minnesota, vjhere the Big Lumberjack and Bess, his co?j, trod the mythical 
ePorth, It is still lumbering country in much of its spirit j some of the forests have 
been cut-over^ there havi been forest fires from time to time that have scarred the 
lake countrj'-. But nothing has touched its essential spirit. 

So it is that Camp Armour men, though they have traditionally done much of the 
surveying of the entire countryside, have never been felt to circumsci-"ibe it. It has 
remained untamed, almost wild. In the early days of Camp Armour the University of 
Wisconsin's forestry school, nor,- defunct, sent msxrj of its fstudents to study under 
Phillips, Wells and Penn. 

Several forest rangers, on active duty in the vaiinity of Upper Trout Lake, are 
former students of Professor Penn. A son of one of these ?/ill be enrolled at Camp 
Armour next season. 

In Minnesota Paul Bun3''an's Bess, ivith h:3r mighty hooves, battered the earth so 

that indentations on its face, filling with water, became lakes. The scientific 

spirit of Camp Armour has so pervaded Vilas County and the lake region of northern 

Wisconsin, however, even the oldest settler vrould be afraid to say its lakes resulted 

from anything but geologically-formed "kettle holes," filled with the tears of midnight 
oil- burning students of surveying.

Before Professor Penn's students ventui'e from the security of Camp Armour each 
morning an unvarying rite is performed. Instead of throwing salt over each shoulder. 
Professor Penn stamps the cold earth tentatively a few times and for five minutes 
becomes the Knute Rockne of surveying. 

In a crisp voice, v;ith an upward inflection, he tells what he wants done during 
the day. True, though it is only 7 o'clock at that time, he talks to his boys as if 
they were fully awake. And they are. A first bell at 5:^5 a.m., a second ten minutes 
later, and the knall that kicks the day av/ake with breakfast, at 6 o'clock, seera to 
come in rapid order. Breakfast, in which student waiters Jeeves-about like dervishes, 
is histor;^'- by 6:30 a.m. 

A common working unit is that of five men, with all units engaged on separate but 
related aspects of a given problem. A problem, book, compiled by Professor Penn, is 
a standard work for the course, together with other contemporary volumes. 

A what-ho spirit seems to emanate from the bands of embryo surveyors as they 
trudge out of camp each morning. Axes slung across hips, transits over shotilders, 
lines and other gear arranged with elaboi'ate skill over leather or lumber jackets, 
every mouth carrying a pipe heavy enough to guarantee its omier is no dilletante — 
Professor Penn's boys will sing some slightly obscene ballad as they fade away into 
the forest. The spectator is reminded somehov/ of Morgan's men unhorsed. Imd that 
there is no strength through joy where first there is not joy through strength. 

By some m.ysterious Atlantis instinct students stream from valley, hummock, hill 
and field, from swamps and brakes, from lakes and rivers v:here they have been taking 
soundings, back to camp v;ith magical precision at 11:30 a.m. Lunch is announced by 
a bell that rings crazily. At 12:30 or 1 P.M., they are back at work. Dinner is at 
5 p.m. and generally is so elegant as to provide an asterisk for each day of the 
calendar . 

From time to time, depending on the burden of work in the field, there is 
svfiraming before dinner. Generally, the day's boating, fishing or swimming occur

before the sun fades, in the golden, magic time after the evening meal. 

Professor Penn has seen the evolution of camp social life, from the period when 
lack of roads, and dependence on foot travel, necessarily confined his boys to the 
vicinity of the camp most nights. A t present, though three or four older students 
might have automobiles at camp, only on Saturday nights may they leave v.'ithout per- 
mission. Functions of camp life are so interdependent, the shadow of each social 
activity being intimately associated v/ith the borrowing of a shirt, tie, or even a 
suit, that rarely does an individual student find a girl that does not prove to be the 
cam.p's girl, in the sense that everyone knows her and has stepped on her toes v/hile 
dancing. 

Camp discipline is practically student-controlled, moving v/ith a quiet efficiency 
that is democratic, a process in vdiich the cool waters of Upper Trout Lake play the 
chastening role of judgment seat. Chiefly, there are no fights, no petty bickerings 
even, because there is no time, 8.nd because such a life as Camp Armour offers mili- 
tates against moral v^eaklings or weak sisters. 

Saturday night is Saturday night, of course. It is probably the only night when 
it is hea-d to get together a five or six-piece orchestra about the upright piano to 
the right of the fire place. Into Minocqua for the movies, into '?foodruff or Boulder 
Junction, but particularily into Shrimps 's Place, a super- juker joint, with four-piece 
orchestrc and friendly college girls who work by day as v.'aitresses at nearby resorts, 
the population of Camp ia'mour streams. 

Coca-colas or malted milks are about what most of the boys can a.fford for one 
couple. The girls knovif enough not to ask for more. Camp i»rm.our fJ.edglings, aside 
from, the aura of learning and dignity their tradition has given to the neighborhood, 
have leaiTied aJ.ways to mention the cabbalistic sylla.bles "joimschoinmer" if they get 
in a tight spot.

the biggest fish, told the v.ddest yarns, lonows more of the indestructible natives than 
any man around. Tlie past summer his picture occupied the frontespiece of the descrip- 
tive folder issued by the busiest of the resort towns. 

Parents of students find a more than 4-00-mile-drive, or train ride, to Upper Trout 
Lake no considerable barrier to visiting their sons. Week-ends and the Fourth of 
July are marked by pilgrimages to camp. Noth..ng, however, is allowed to disturb the 
strict scholastic atmosphere of camp precincts. Sunday morning finds most of the 
students awake for 7 o'clock breakfast, half of them hurrying off to church in nearby 
Sajmer.

RE: INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING CURRICULUIJ 

AKNOUtJCED BY ILLINOIS TECH PRESIDENT 
H. T. HEALDi H. P, DUTTON, DEPT, liEAD. 

FOR IMffiDIATE RELEASE 



Establishment of a course in industrial engineering and administration at Illi- 
nois Institute of Technology was announced today by H. T, Heald, 58/+4- Stony Island 
Avenue, president, with Henry Post Dutton, 2252 Pioneer Road, Evanston, named chairman 
of the department o 

The course will be taught in Armour College of Engineering of the Institute and 
is designed to widen the horizon of engineering students so that they may intelligently 
direct business from responsible positions, Heald said. 

Dutton, since 1933 a lecturer in business and management at the Institute, the 
follo7/ing year became chairman of the department of social science and professor of 
business management. He is as well, since 1933, dean of the Institute's evening divi- 
sion including both Armour 3.nd Lewis campuses. 
^. "Engineering schools over the country are adding courses made necessary Irj the 

increasing dependence of engineers on knowledge of good business methods and of business 
men on knovjledge of engineering processes," Dutton said. 

"The average industrial engineer has to knovr a great deal about tool design and 
shop operation. At the Institute, under the new course requirements, he will get 
about the game toraihing in machine design the average mechanical engineer gets. 



\ 






-2- 

"He v.dll then get courses in time study., industrial management, accounting and 
costSj marketing, financial administration, labor management, business law and econ- 
omics, that v/ill give him a fairly thorough grasp of business operations," 

The first t;vo years of study for the bachelor of science in industrial engineer- 
ing and management degree will be virtually the same as those for the civil, mechani- 
cal, chemical, fire engineering, electrical and science degrees in engineering. 
Button explained. 

Sophomores, ho^fever, \7ill be given classes in accounting and business administra- 
tion and industrial management. Requirements for adiHission to the department v.'ill 
not differ from those of other engineering courses. The nev; department will be en- 
tirely separate from the five-year cooperative course in business and industrial 
management, taught at Lewis division. 

"In the new course we want men who have analytical training and ability of engi- 
neers and v7ho have been taught to apply them to basiness problem^Sj" Dutton declared. 

"There is a continuing demand for supervisory, staff and department-managerial 
personnel, v.'ith industry getting better trained men as a result," he said. 

"The fact that labor and price relations are so critical as problems in the con- 
temporary business world is a good reason for the economic training students in the 
new department will receive, 

"Any man handling labor in his shop, factory or business should understand the 
fundamentals of economic theory." 

Under a new relation between the depa.rtment established ',7ith Dutton as chairman, 
the department of social science of which he is at present head, and the department 
of history, political science and sociology, headed by Jolm Day Larkin, associate 
professor of political science, political science and economic management courses 
v/ill be taught under Larkin. 

Dutton, who received his B.S. in electrical engineering from University of 
Michigan in 1914, taught at Northvrestern University from that date until 1933. Ke was

RE, DONALD MONSON, ILLINOIS TECH GRAD^ 
FEB. 5 'Al, AFARDED EDHARD L/iNGLEY 
SCHOLARSHIP OF AlffiRICMI INST, ARCHS. 

RELEASE FOR; MONDAY, AUGUST A> 19.41 



Donald lionson, /+926 Kimbark Avenue, a graduate of the architectural department 
of Illinois Institute of Technology in February, 194-1^ has been avjarded a 194-1 Edxrard 
Langley scholarship of the American Institute of Architects. 

This announcement was made today, Monday, 8/4/4-1 j ty Jerrold Loebl, 333 N. 
Michigan Avenue, president of the Chicago chapter of the organization, who said the 
award totalled $600, It v;as one of six given in the nation and is the first bestowed 
on an Illinois Institute of Technology graduate applying as a senior. 

ivlonson, a draftsman for the firm of James B. Black, 520 N. iJlichigan Avenue, 
structural engineer, held a Bartlett Memorial scholarship as a junior at the Institute. 
He graduated from Waupaca High School, Waupaca, Wisconsin, in I73I5 and attended 
Northwestern University, before enrolling at the Institute as a junior. 

A native of Kenosha, Monson is ti'-enty-eight years old and married. Continuing 
specialization in the field of city planning, for vrhich he received his bachelor of 
science in architecture degree, Monson has pursued graduate 77ork under Mies van der 

Rohe and Ludwig Hilberseimer of the Institute. 

I 

The latter, international authority on city planning, directed ?^ork on a region- 
al plan of Chicago shovm at the school's Open House last Spring. Monson was among 
student assistants directing the exhibit.

A written resume of a study Monson indicated he hoped to accomplish as part of 
graduate work his scholarship ivill facilitate follows, in part, as announced by Loebl, 
under the title "The Settling of Illinois"; 

"The proposed study is intended to evaluate the effect of the topography and soil 
conditions, the changing means of transport, and ner; sources of productive pov.'er upon 
the settlement of Illinois. 

" It is put forward as the first step in the formulation of a regional plan 
inasmuch as such a plan must take into consideration the forces behind the present 
urban pattern. 

"IVith each new development in transportation — from the canoe to the sailing 
vessel and the steamboat, from the v/agon to the railroads and the automobile — there 
were important changes in this pattern. 

"The location of cities v,'as effected. Some died as a result of the change, the 
physical layout and organization of all of them were altered. 

"These changes were conditioned by the land itself, "ijy the soil and the waterv/ays. 
With the d.evelopment of new sources of power further changes occured. For example, 
the need for coal called into being a new industry, while the subsequent developm,ent 
of the electric motor and the substitution of other fuels have, in turn, affected the 
coal industry, ftiese changes are reflected in the cities of the coal-producing areas 
as well as in the cities vfhere it is consumed, 
f "The candidate submits that a study of these various forces and changes in urban 
organization ought to bring out more clearly the problems with which city and region- 
al planning must deal. With definite principles in mind, it vjill be possible to 
evolve a future plan for this region which will provide an enduring basis for future 
building."

RE; 35 YEARS AS THE "VOICE" OF LEI^ilS DIVI- 
SION OF ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF TECm^fOLOC^! 
TO BE m\RYiED BY MISS ELIZABETH CADIGAN. 

FOR It1!/[£DIATE RELEASE 



How would you like to sit in one place every day of the year and be able to 
tell friends of your memories of Dorothy Thompson, Benny Goodman, Luther Adler, Samson 
R3,phaelson, Mainbocher, and a host of others claimed by fame? 

Of course, if you were Miss Elizabeth Cadigan, 4226 West End Avenue, who on 
October 15 will have been sitting virtually in the same place for 35 years, you would 
have to intei-rupt yourself from time to time to tend to business. Particularly if it 
was a sort of business that had made you famous in a special sort of way. 

"Illinois Tech, Lewis," delivered into a black mouthpiece, is Miss Cadigan' s 
salute to the outside v;orld. Until a year ago, when Lewis Institute became a part of 
Illinois Institute of Technology, she had had the consummate pleasure, since 1906, of 
saying "Lev/is Ins-ti-tute," very deliberately a few hundred times each day. 

And so that the last syllable never sounded like "toot." 

Like a priestess at an altar. Miss Cadigan has been an oracle at her switch- 
board on the second floor of the grey island of learning on Chicago's grimy West Side. 
She has been the nerve center, from the day she arrived in the school's tenth year, 
of the hull<ing building at 1951 W. Madison Street. 

To much of Chicago calling for infoi-mation about the school, to professors, 
calling from their homes about this or that, to undergraduates who hailed her as

"Cadi," slender, cameo-faced Miss Gadigan has been the "Voice" of Lewis. 

A person who gets close to 200 remembrances each Christmas, including gifts, 
cards, and letters from far parts of the vrarld, is likely to be counted as much of an 
institution as the institution of v-hich she is part. Such a separation of identity is 
a luxury Miss Cadigan never has allov/ed herself. 

What, more than mortar, holds the granite blocks of Ler:^j,s in their places, is 
somehov; expressed by the personality of Miss Cadigan 's voice. She is part of a trad- 
ition that has seen a score of celebrated professors, half a hundred famous students 
and 4-5 graduating classes come and go. 

iYesh from a year at the Palmer House, Y;herc she has been one of tliree switch- 
board girls to ho.ndle overseas;, long distance and local calls of sv/ells whose patent- 
leather shoes clicked nicely on the silver-dollar inlaid lobby floor of the Old Palmer 
House, Miss Cadigan came to an academic switchboard that was the first of its kind in 
a young institution. 
ta No one has ever supplanted her. Several dozen student assistants thorough the 
years have found her a patient instructress, whose r-ales came out of no book, and whose 
gentility could overcome any snarl that a novice had created. 
9 "Lady Cadogan" she had been dubbed by the late Dr. Sdv;dn Herbert Lev/is, deon 

of the faculty and head of the Eriglish department for many years at Lewis. The savant, 
aTjare that "Cadigan" vfas a corruption of the name of the ?Jelsh earls that figure in 
literary and historic annals, made courtly use of the fact. 

The Mr. Chips and Miss Bishops v/ho ornament most schools have their counterpart 
in the unsung office employes of their respective institutions. Miss Cadigan, holding 
the history of her school so that it can be opened like a tom.e of spoken words, is the 
echo of that rank. 

"I suppose I have from year to year heard 10,000 voices," Miss Cadigan said. 

"If I sit quietly now I can remember the sound of the voice of the late Dr. 
George Noble Carman, for AQ years director of Lewis. Dr. Edwin Herbert Lev'is, and any

number of retired or deceased teachers, come back to me clearly. A voice is never 
emeritus . " 

The innumerable inflections of the human voice are her gre&t auxiliaries in 
identifying the personalities that accompany the voices, Miss Cadigan declared. 

"I don't have to hear a voice very often, if the tone and pitch are characteris- 
tic those times, to be able to identify it. People over the years have become more 
and more hurried, take less time to speak easily and correctly, but one is somehow 
able to categorize them anj^.7ay. 

"I would say that, though the world is so busy commercially, a.nd the pace of 
life is unnecessarily stepped up, the function of a good operator is to make it appear 
that she has time to speak casually. This is very often hard to do since, when any- 
thing important or exciting happens in an institution, every one reaches for his phone 
at the same moment . " 

With a smile, Miss Cadigan recalled s,n instance of how she was made to appear a 
heroine because she refused to get excited in a time of crisis. 

"In the early days of Lewis during a school term, I received a frantic call 
from outside telling me that a large building opposite the school on Madison Street 
WS.S on fire," she said. 

K "Tlie swarm, of men students who ran across to form a bucket brigade that helped 
put out the fire had been mobilized, according to the nev/spapers, by me. It is true 
I had made a few calls in the school but nothing in the form of a Paul Revere perform- 
ance. But no one would believe I hadn't suimnoned the boys individually." 

The contemporary generation of Lev/is students in student publications marvels 
at Miss Cs.digan's facility in locating teachers and students in the vast reaches of 
the labyrinthine building when they are wanted to answer incoming telephone calls. To 
her, the ability is an acquired one and not mysterious. 

"I make a habit of knowing each professor's class schedule and as many of those 
of the students as is practicable," she declared.

"I usually know vdiat teachers and students associate in groups and ivhich are 
likely to be alone. Of courv^e, through the students 5 I know of al.^lost every activity 
on the separate flooi's of the buildiiig. 

"Then, too, because to a remarkable extent I have been the confidante of the love 
sick hearts of thirtj^-f i'v e cla^:ses of students, I can pretty v/ell anticipate vvho is 
waiting for a phone call and ■.-■bo is not." 

An amazing fact, that never fails to give importance to each new student face 
as she acquaints herself with it, is that, of the famous alumni and plumnae of Lewis 
whom she knew as undergraduates, none suggested particularly its owner wasi bovrnd for 
celebrity after graduation. 

"I sat in a box at a Loop theater recently wratcliing Luther Adler and his wife, 
Sylvia Sydney, play in Accent on Youth ," she remarked. "Luther, who y/as one of the 
most delightful undergraduates I have ever encountered, had presented me with the seats. 

"As I sat pondering on the enigma of fame, I remembered the play had been 
written by a second ex-Lewis student, Samson Raphaolson, who, like Luther, has been 
just one of the undergraduates years before. 

"Benny Goodman, not long av.-ay from tlie orchestral endeavors he involved himself 
in as a Lewis student, had a feiv months earlier been playing not far from that theater. 
Each of the boys had been talented, of course, but vrho was to say ahead of time v/hich 
would make his name?" 

Miss Cadigan remembers an undergraduate whose name was Main Bocher. In Paris 
years after graduation, in the post-v/ar deiys of salons filled with beautiful women 
wearing artistic go^ms of groat cost, the name Mainbocher was that of a leading 
stylist. 

■ Dorothy Thompson, a moon-faced, sensitive undergraduate, who told eveiyone she 
would someday be a great writer, is presented in an amusing portrait by Miss Cadigan. 
fe: "Dorothy, like her friends, imna Drummond, later to becom.e a well-kno'.-na English 
teacher, and Isabel Drummond, now a lawyer, was part of a literary clique in a class of

Dr. Lev/is c Dorothy was something of a basketball player and one of our old Lewis 
annuals shorrs her in uniform. 

"Dr. Lewis' da.ughter, Janet, was herself to become widely iaiovin as a poet, 
novelist and writer of stories for children. She is married to Yvor I^inters, West 
Coast professor, translator and poet." 

Innujnerable lawyer::; ;, doctors f^nd engineers, some of them sons and daughters of 
wealthy families that had occupied aristocratic bro^'mstons mansions of Ashland Boule- 
vard in their heyday, trip through reminiscences of Miss Cadigan. 

Each coraiaencenient week finds her remembered by graduates who had fallen out of 
touch with the Institute after graduation and v.'ho approach her by way of re-establish- 
ing contact with the Institute, she s^^.id. 

Richard Henry 'Whitehead, president of the New Haven Clock Company, Nevf Haven, 
Connecticut, recipient of an honorary degree at the June Illinois Institute of 
Teclinology graduation, v/aved to Miss Cadigan from the stage of Civic Opera House 
gra.duation night. She was sitting in his box, wearing an orchid he had sent her. 
W Another freshman class will storm into Lewis division of Illinois Tech in 

September. Almost before they have left the registrar's office, before they have 
found their ways into classrooms, they ^-ill have pr.ssed the office of Miss Ciidigan. 

Whether it is to make a phone call, pick up mail or leave a m2ssa.ge for a friend, 
they ',-.dll have given their names to the little lady at the switchboa.rd. Then, in a 
manner of speaking, their careers at Lewis will have begun.

RE; FATHERS AI^D SONS PUNCHING SAIffi TIME- 
CLOCKS THROUGH ILLINOIS TECH BUSINESS 
AND INDUSTRIAL MANAGEFiENT COOPERATIVE 

FOR imiEDIATE RELEASE 



Chipping off the old block has taken a novel form r.-'^i--:itly at Illinois Institute 
of Technology Vifhere, through agency of the business and industrial management cooper- 
ative course, two pairs of fathers and sons are setting forth on partnerships covering 
office and classroom. 

Two Lev'jis division students, in the first year of the cooperative course, Carl 
Buehler, Barrington, and Syles R. Fralick, Jr., 830 Sunset Ridge, Northbrook, are 
studying for bachelor of science degrees in business and industrial managem.ent. 

Victor Adding Machine Company, 3900 N. Rockvell Avenue, and the Kwikon Company, 
1850 W. Washington Blvd., are among 20 firms cooperating with Miss Kathryn Judkins, 
coordinator of the course, employing its students at prevailing vrages so that tuition 
and other school expenses are net. 

A. C. Buehler, father of Carl, is president of the former, while Syles R. Fralick. 
Sr., is president of the latter. Both have had the pleasure of v;atching their sons 
punch timeclocks in their ovm plants as part of the work-and-study plan set up by the 
cooperative course. 

The course is arranged so that each of its five years is divided into six eight- 
week periods. One month of vacation yearly is allotted a student. Each enrollee in 
the course, on entering, is given a partner. This partner vrorks in industry, at the 
same job at xvhich the second partner has been employed, while the latter is in school.

Partners exchange workshop ox" office for classrooms every eight weeks. The part- 
ner leaving school for his job in industry picks up where his mate, vYio at the same 
time returns to school, left off. Thus each employer is assured of steady, intelligent 
response from whichevor half of a v;ork-and-study unit is in hi.s employ at a given time 

Students draw pay only for the time they spend in industry. However, a suffi- 
cient amount is earned by each that, usually, more than mere school expenses are rea- 
lized from the twenty-four weeks spent at work during a year. 

In the cases of Carl Buehler, v'ho is now in a day-shift work period in the Victor 
Adding Machine plant, and Syles Fralick, Jr., who last "leek left the Kwikon Companj'- 
plant after eight weeks to start a classroom period at Lewis division of the Institute, 
neither is actually dependent on working for tuition in order to go to school. Their 
fathers are considered well-to-do. 

Both Carl and Syles, Jr., however, have partners that, like most of the coopera- 
tive students, depend on an income to keep them in school. The average enrollee is 
not from a home of v-ealth, the requirements of the course being based on high school 
background, a high scholastic standing, with character and appearances acceptable to 
Miss Judkins, course coordina.tor, 

B Miss Judkins, who introduced the cooperative course to Lewis division last year, 
has interviewed heads of firms and their personnel officers throughout the metropolitan 
region. Given exact information ty them as to the t^npe of employee desired, she is 
able to serve industr^A by selecting the most promising material for its business and 
management phases. 

In another direction, she has served students hy selecting positions for them 
that will give chance of advancement to junior executive and superior adm.inistrative 
positions. A graduate of the cooperative course is of incalculable worth to an em- 
ployer because he has already been trained by that employer to the task he takes over 
year-round after graduation. 

Miss Judkins' pithy summ.ary of the value of the course is in the nature of its

"I have more jobs to be filled by cooperative students than I can take care of," 
she said. 

"Business firms have shovm themselves more than willing to take our students on 
the cooperative basis. The great problem is to secure students who will meet our 
standards. Once our students are hired by a company they stay v/here thejr are placed. 
So rigorous is the examination of each cooperative student as a prospective employee 
mid judgements as to his ability and character are almost negligible." 

Syles Fraliek, Jr., in his Lev/is division classes at present takes the elementary 
courses in a study plan that, over five years, embraces fundamental studies in science, 
economics, humanities and courses that prepare for junior executive positions. 

Retailing, vdiolesaling, office or personnel management, advertising, purchasing, 
marketing, time and motion study, factory layout and equipment, production management, 
cost control and industrial marketing are among subjects studied in the cooperative 
course, 

A. G. Buehler, president of the Victor Adding Machine Company, believes the busi- 
ness and industrial management course to be the best medium of preparation of trained 
personnel for industry. 

"I knovi of no other school-and-shop enterprise in the Chicago region \=7hich tries, 
and accomplishes, the training of boys who can be put into men's jobs, brought up in 
them as they learn in the classroom, and so they emerge actually prepared according to 
the employer's ideal," he said. 

Three sets of partners in the Leiris division cooperative course are employed at 
the Victor Adding Machine Company plant, Baehler added. 

Equally enthusiastic concerning the cooperative pl&n is Syles R. Fralick, Sr., 
Kwikon Company head. 

k "The great fault of most graduates of institutions of higher learning is that they 
are not orientated to the demands of actual vrork in an office or plant," he declared.

"They have little feeling for the work in front of them for Fl long time after 
they start. However, a cooperative course studant is a picked man from the beginning, 
can be entrusted with responsibility, and can be shovm to be a leader in his work 
from the first." 

Fifty-five students are at present enrolled in the Leris division cooperative 
course. At iii'nour campus, where last February sixty-seven students composed the first 
graduating cleiss of the mechanical engineering cooperative course, success in that 
course in the more than 100 plants cooperating v/ith the Institute led to a demand that 
a similar course in the biisiness and office administration side of industry be inaug- 
urated. Such dems.nd caused the Lev/is division cooperative to be set up. Many employ- 
ers have hired students from both types of cooperatives. 

Tv/enty comp5.nies ha.ve thus fa,r been affiliated in the Lev/is division cooperative, 
with many more offering to be allied formally v/ith the Institute as soon as students 
can be provided for them. Large department stores, banks, packing companies, steel 
industries and their subsidiaries are among firms cooperating. 

Graduates of Austin, Hyde Park, Schurz, Northbrook, Morgan Park, St. Rita, Fenger, 
Calumet, Kelv^m Park, Englewood, Leo, Taft, Sullivan, St. li/kl. Villa Park, Marion 
(Indiana), Do^vners Grove, Lane Tech, Steinmetz, Tilden Tech, Kt. Carmel, Roosevelt, 
Waller, Hirsch, Oak Park High Schools, and Long^-food and Elgin academies, are enrolled.

TION. 

RELEASE; FOR FRIDAY, 8/8 Al 



College level, tuition-free training of defense industry personnel will be ex- 
tended to include not only engineering colleges and universities in the Chicago area 
during the academic year 19-41-4-2, but also science and arts schools. This announce- 
ment was made ty H. T. Healdj president of Illinois Institute of Technology and I'e- 
gional advisor for district #15 engineering, science, and management defense training 
to the United States Office of Education « 

According to President Heald, recent legislation by Congress, authorizing an 
expenditure during the coming academic year of approximately v'lVjOOOjOOO for defense 
training, will permit the training of personnel for defense jobs in the fields of 
engineering, science and management. The title of the training program will be change 
from eng;ineering; defense training , carried on now in the Chicago area exclusively by 
Illinois Tech and Northwestern, to engineering, science and management defense trainin. 

Quoting from a mem.o froin John W. Studeba-ker, U= S, Commissioner of Education, 
Mr, Heald explained that, 

"Under the new act the training is to be provided by degree granting colleges 
and universities. Degree granting as used therein has been interpreted to mean that 
the institutions, in recognition of satisfactory completion of curriculvim of four 
years or longer beyond high school graduation, during the academic year 194-0-4-1 
granted degrees with a major leading to a professional career in engineering, chemistr 
physics, or production supervision. Institutions will be eligible to conduct courses

ohly in those fields named above in wliich they have suitable facilities in staff and 
equipment," 

Those colleges and universities of engineering who have been cooperating with the 
United States Office of Education during the parit year in presenting the engineering 
defense training courses, will continue to do so during the academic year 194-1-4-2. 
These courses have included tool and fixture design, engineering drav.'ing, airplane 
engine testing, production inspection, metallurgy, and many others. The nevr program 
will now provide for the cooperation of the non-engineering schools to give such non- 
credit, tuition-free, college-level courses as management, physics and chemistry. 

In Chicago, Mr. Heald explained, The Universitj'- of Chicago expects to cooperate 
in the new program for science and management defense training. The fall courses are 
expected to conmience on or about Ocftober first. Sufficient notice will be given by 
all schools in the Chica.go area concerned so that enrollment will be possible. 

Mr. Heald also emphasized the fact that such training vfill be caj^ried on exten- 
sively throughout Illinois, northern Indiana and southern Wisconsin, knoym as district 
#15, of which he is regional advisor. Schools in that district cooperating in engineer- 
ing defense training are; the University of Illinois, Bradley Polytech (Peoria), 
Marquette (Milwaukee ) , the University of Wisconsin (Madison - with extension courses 
throughout the State), and North\restem Technological Institute (Chicago), Other 
colleges are expected to cooperate in the science and management defense training pro-

RE. AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE 
TO BE OFFERED BY ILLINOIS TECH; 
FIRST CLaSS TO GRADUATE IN 19/U. 

F'uR H*.1SDIATE RELEASE 



Illinois Institute of Tochnology, whose Armour College of Engineering division 
pioneered in the teaching of aerodynamics 30 years agOj will next month inaugurc.te a 
program leading to the bachelor of science in aeronciutical engineering degree. 

Announcement of this innovation, '."hich x?ill make Illinois Tech the sole engi- 
neering school in the state and one of fer: in the Middle West to offer such a degree, 
is made today by H= T. Heald, 5S/+4- Stony Island Avenue, president, YJork in the aero- 
nautics field vjill be under joint sponsorship of the civil and mechanical engineering 
departments. 

Since the first two years of vrork for the degree vtLll be that of the freshman 
and sophomore curricula of either civil or mechanical engineering degrees, actual 
setting up of courses for the nevi program ;?ill not take place until September, 194-2 = 
At that time, students now sophomores in the t-^-o branches of engineering ceai elect 
the aeronautics option. 

First graduates with the aeronautical engineering degree v.'ill leave school in 
June, 19A4-- It is expected a full complement of student \7ill register in the course 
at its inception, because of widespread demand for its introduction. 

"About one-third of students registering for enrollment at the Institute during 
the past tx=fo years ha.ve been vitall;- interested in establishjnent of such a field of 
study," President Heald said.

"Industry demands three general types of men for its needs in the aeronautici.1 
field - designers, production men and teclinicians. 

"Designers can be trained in the civil engineering field, production men in the 
mechanical engineering field, and technicians by such program as the engineering de- 
fense training course the government established for that purpose at the Institute. " 

The present problem of army and navy experts, attempting to solve needs for high- 
grade personnel in an all-out effort to step-up aircraft production, is that civil 
or mechanical engineers must be remade to the particular patterns demanded by the 
airplane industry. 

Marked advantages will be possessed by graduates of the aeronautical engineering 
program over either civil or mechanical engineers in that they vrill have been trained 
to step from classroom to aircraft plant on graduation, Heald stated. . 

From the pioneering days of Professor Melville B. Wells, noiv emeritus professor 
of civil engineering and former head of the department, who in 1911 taught what is 
generally accepted as the second course to be taught in the nation in aerodynamics, to 
the incumbent aeronautical engineering experts of the faculty, Illinois Tech has been 
close to the design, production and research of all types of aircraft. 

Hans Reissner, 5110 Hyde Park Blvd., research professor of engineering, who is at 
present designing a Y;ind tunnel to be used next year, Lloyd H. Donnell, 5525 Kimbark 
Avenue, associate professor of mechanical engineering, vmo for several years was conn- 
ected I'dth the field of dirigible building, and other aeronautical resesrehitits are 
numbered among the faculty. 

In addition to Professor Wells 'who, though 70 years old, last year taught himself 
to fly though he ia- hpndiccpped hy having only one arm., some members of the aeronauti- 
cal engineering faculty will be men who have served their hours in the air at the con- 
trol of a ship. 

Admission to the new course will be granted only to students of high scholastic 
standing, especially those who are capable mathematicians. A prospective aeronautical 
engineering student vfhose marks in calculus, for instance, are lower than "B", will not 
be admitted to the program. -JGM-

"What is believed to be the first conference on a national scale called by an 
engineering schoolj at which phases of airport construction^ operation and mainten- 
ance will be discussed by experts > will be sponsored by Illinois Institute of 
Technology at the PaLner House Thursday through Friday, October 30 and 31. 

"Airports" will be the formal then.e of the :Tieeting5 v^hich will be the first

The latter is confined to problems of the power industry but the former each 
year will concern a separate aspect of tiie engineering field. Intense interest of 
professional figures and laymen in developLient of airports and rela.ted problems as an 
offshoot of national defense, coupled with prominence of Chicago's airport through 
its expansion program^ heightens topical appeal of the Conference, the Institute 
believes.

professor of architecture. 

Airport grading, drainage c--nd paving, lighting and signaling, capacity and oper- 
ations prcblem.s, airport layout, raanagernent , plane servicing arrangements, buildings 
and fire protection v/ill be among subjects discussed. Other subjects ara to be 
announced shortly.

J.LLIKOIS TECH„ 

FOR RELEASE HEMESDAY, 8/'20/Zl 



John H. Collier, President of Grar.e Co., ha<.s been elected to the Board of 
'rustees of Illinois Institute of Teohnology. i-mnouncement of the election v.'ss ms.de 
y Ja.ues D, Cunningham, Chairman of the Board of Illinois Tech, and President of 
:epublic Flor Meters Cor:ipa.n7 of Chicago, 

Mr. Collier, according to the announcement, has been elected to the Institute's 
loard to fill the vacancy caused by the death of C. E. Nolte^ long-time, staunch 
upporter of the Institute and one of the prime-movers of the Institute's net-? 
3,000,000 building campaign. 

The election of John H. Collier to the Presidency of Crane Co. at a special 
eeting of the Board of Directors on May 5, 194-1 culminated a career that began 38 
ears earlier, when, as a young man of 19, he entered the employ of Crane Co. as a 
ore-maker's helper - almost the bottom, of the industrial ladder. Through his ovm 
bility, perseverance, dependabilj.ty and honesty he successfully ran the gamut of 
Dundry practices and manufacturing processes which led to plant m.anageraent, both here 
id abroad, and finally as executive head of one of our countrj'-'s loading manufacturini 
id distributing organizations. 

The first few years of his Crane experience brought hiin in intimate contact yath 
3veral different ina.nufac taring sections including core room, pattern shop, pop valve 



-2- 
3ection, moulding foundry, tool section, iron valve department, and machine designing. 
7ith such a practical background, he v/as given his first really important assignment 
Ln January, 1908, vrhen he was made assistant superintendent of the brass foundry. 

Mr. Collier was appoi.nted by president R, T. Crane, Jr. as general manager of 
the Bridgeport, Conn, manufacturing division (August, 1917) vjhich position he held 
twel'/e years. From Januai-y, 1922 until 1929, inclusive, he also served a.s a Director 
jf Crane Co., but v/as not re-elected in January, 1930, because six months prior to 
that time he pjas sent to Europe as president of Cie Crane, Paris, France, and chair- 
nan and director of Crane, Ltd,, London, England. He served in those capacities until 
;he middle of 1933, when the economic depression was at its lowest ebb and made neeess- 
iry various changes in the com.oany. It was then that Mr, Collier returned to Chicago 
,0 be elected vice-president in charge of manufacturing vrith headquarters in the great 
hicago works he helped to build nearly twenty years before. In March, 1939, he was 

ain elected a dii-ector of the company. The top rung of the ladder was reached vrhcn 
e was made President, May 5> 1>'4-1" 

Ifr, Collier was born in Chicago on September 22, 1884- , a son of Frank Howard 
nd Fanny (Brovm) Collier. In 1919 he married Virginia MacMakin. They have a son 
MacMakin) and a daughter (Joan), and live at 900 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago.

EE: DR. M. ALDEN COUNTRBiHAN, ASSIS5MT 
PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS, PLANS NOVEL 
PePULAR SCIENCE TALIJS, BUSIIESS, LAY 
GROUPS AS AUDIENCES. 

FOR BftlEDIATE RELEASE 



Dr, M, Alden Co-untryman, 64I N, Stone Street, La Grange, Illinois, assistant 
professor of physics in Lewis division of Illinois Institute of Technology, will in 
October embark on a novel "science-at-yo-ur-door" instruction program designed 
particularly for lay persons, it Yias announced today by Dr. J, S. Thompson, chainnan 
of the physics department of the Institute, 

Dr, Thompson will himself, as occasion demands, accompany Dr. Countryman on his 
round of demonstrations before club groups, luncheon meetings of businessmen and 
businessxTOmen, and various lay organizations whose members have evinced interest in 
the program, the former said. 

The basic appeal of Dr, Countryman* s talks on the simple lawa and essential 
facts of scientific truth that v'ork in the v;orld every day, but which are for the 
most part unlcnown to the average person, v/ill be brevity. 

Demonstrations Tivill make up about one-half of each tvrenty-minute tallc. Mater- 
ial and equipment for demonstrations rdll be so simplified they will pack neatly 
into a small suitcase, 

fallacies of the popular belief tliat science is mysterious will be disproved 
by his demonstrations and accompanying talks. Dr. Countryman said.

"I vd.ll consider my program of instruction a success if by certain simple 
examples I show that the common experience is fully as mysterious as science — and 
actually that science is not at all mysterious," he declared. 

What is science? Dr. Countryman says it is an attempt to order eJcperience and 
to enlarge the ordered sequence of experience, rather than to attempt to eiq^lain: 
"v;hy" — except insofar as breaking up large experience into small parts is telling 
"¥;hy." 

To take the mystery out of science is the fuQction of evei-y v/orthv/hile 
scientist, Dr. Countryman said, 

"Tlie point of vieu I speak for is just the reverse of that of magicians, who 
attempt to create an aura of mystery about the simple, to frustrate the simple and 
logical. Whatever mystery there appears to be in scientific processes is inlierent 
i& nature itself. 

"Actxaally, as far as procedures go, the most profound truths may have the 
simplest explanations. On the other hsmd, some of the processes of scientists are 
those which have not been commonly observed, 

"Through long daily contact of our environments v/e come to thinlc of things, 
which in themselves are mysterious, as familiar. We nov; have tools available for 
observing scientific situations, that wliile they are natural, have been hitherto 
unexperienced by the average person," 

Typical of demonstrations of a concrete sort Dr. Countryman will employ in 
his instructions is one that is used to malce graphic the fact of physical inertia, 

Ti70 eggs, one boiled, the other iinboiled, are put on a table. Inertia can be 
demonstrated by spinning the rav; egg, v/hose Interior is liquid, and will not easily 
rotate. The outside doesnH spin as the interior does because the latter tends to 
rotate slightly and to v/hatever. eoctent the outside rotates the interior continues to 
do so when the exterior stops.

If a ra\f egg is spun, then stopped, then released, it vdll start spinning 
again. The boiled egg, however, gives an entirely different performance, interior 
and exterior being one in motion, 

Tlie fact of surface tension in water would be demonstrated by taking a glass 
of water, putting some device, such as a needle or a razor blade, on the surface 
to float. 

The floating is the result of surface tens ion© There is a difference in. miole- 
cular spacing betvreen the body of the liquid and the surface, hence the surface has 
characteristics different than the body. 

Other simple demonstrations such as the conservation of energy as shoiivn through 
the rolling of a child's "kumback" cylinder on a table, the cylinder rolling back to 
its starting point after it is pushed in an opposite directionj the stroboscope 
demonstration, in which a flashing light at intermittent intervals is timed to flash 
in syncronism with a rotating object, so that it appears to stop rotating, even 
though it continues to do soj a demonstration on the nature of white light, etc., 
will be among Dr. Countryman's bag of scientific commonplaces. 

Organizations wishing to secure Dr, Countryman for a talk should phone 
Victory 4-600, the Armour College of Engineering division of Illinois Tech, and ask 
for tlie lecture ^bureau,

Registration for day and evening division courses at Illinois Institute of 
Teciinology begins tomori^ov; (Monday, 9/i5/-4l) , with the prospect of record enrollment 
for opening of day sessions September 22 ajnd evening sessions September 29, it was 
announced today by J. C. Peebles, 984-6 3 Iio;/ne Avenue, acting dean. 

Boasting the broadest teaching program in its history, Arnour College of Engi- 
neering (South-side campus) enters the scholastic year of 1941-4-2 v;ith a greatly 
aiigmented faculty. T'.Tenty-two nevf teachers have been added to the roster and one 
returns from a leave of absence. 

Tvvo departments have been created, a.n aeronautical engineering option has been 
adopted, four department heads have been appointed and extensive equipment and facility 
changes have been provided. A five-year course replaces the present four-year course 
in architecture. 

Engineering dravving and industrial engineering departments, nev-ly set up, tfill 
be headed respectively by H. C. Spencer, 6139 3. Kenwood Avenue, associate professor 
of engineering drav:ing, and H. P. Dutton, dean of the evening division of tiie 
Institute. 
■ Spencer was formerly head of the engineering drawing department at Texas 
Agricultural and Mechanical College. Datton has been associated v;ith the Institute 



-2- 

since 1933. Dr. J. £. Hobsorij 30-year-cld central station engineer of the Westing- 
house Electric; and I/knufacturing Company, will head the electrical engineering 
departraent. Dr. M. J. I,'!"array, 7619 Crandon Aveuvio, associate p3.'"ofessor of chemistry, 
has been named acting head of the chemistry department. 

Inauguration of a program loading to the bachelor of science degree in aeronauti- 
cal engineering, T;hich v.dll make Illinois Tech the sole engineering school in the 
state and one of few in the Middle West to offer such a degree, will necessitate 
slight CLirricula adjustm.ents. 

In September, 194-2, actual setting up of classes will take place, as fi*eshman 
and sophomore years of the program will be virtually identical ivith the first two 
years of the civil and mechanical engineering programs. Present sophomores in mech- 
anical or civil engineering may elect the aeronautical option next :/ear. 

The fifth year of the architecture course vdll be devoted to specialisation in 
architecture and city design or regional and city planning, the latter subjects 
arousing grent interest because of arcuitectural tendencies in those directions. 
Repeated requests of students for the longer course was greatly responsible for its 
adoption . 

The departinent of electrical engineei-ing, in addition to Dr. Hobson, will have 
Dr. William A. Edson as a nevfcomer. He has been employed for the past four years in 
the Bell Telephone Ls.boratories, Nev: York City. In addition to Spencer, P., 0. Loving, 
appointed assistant professor, and Harold Minkler, appointed instinictor, will be 
attached to the engineering dravi^ing department.

Registration for daj and evening division classes at Illinois Institute of 
Technology begins tomorrow (Monday, 9/15/4-1), with a spurt in attendance for the Fall 
semester indicated by freshman class gains, according to Dr. C> L. Clarke, dean. 

Noting large additions in teaching personnel and laboratory and classroom 
equipment, and citing a completely reorganized home economics department expected to 
prove a magnet for coeds, Lewis Institute of Arts and Sciences division (West-side 
campus) will be functioning close to capacity, Dr. Clarke said. 

Sixteen nev? faculty members will be associated with Lewis day division this 
year. One teacher returns from a leave of absence. A strong impetus for harmonizing 
work of individual departments of the liberal arts curriculum has led to notable 
faculty additions in English, languages, chemistry, physics, business and economics, 
and mathematics. 

Tv?o new department heads have been appointed. They are Dr. Ruth Cowan Clouse, 
formerly a nutrition expert of the American Medical Association, and Dr. M. J. Murray, 
associate professor of chemistry, named acting head of the chemistry department. 

Dr. Clouse' s department viill be s'taffed by two members of the present home 
■e'febaDnics faculty in addition to Miss Ida Marie Didier, like Dr. Clouse a newcomer.

FROMs ALEXANDER SCKREIBER 

ILLINOIS INSTITUTE OF 
TECHNOLOGY-VIC, ^600 




A staff reorganization of the Armour Research Foundation at Illinois Institute 
of Technology, resulting from its very rapid expansion, was axmounced today, 
Monday, September 8, 194.1, by its director Harold Vagtborg. 

Tlie reorganization, according to Ivlr. Vagtborg, takes the form of appointment of 
three new staff members to handle new research projects, and the promotion of tv/o 
regular staff members to more responsible positions. 

New appointees to the staff include Dr= Claj^on 0. Dohremrend, 2322 W, 119th 
Place, expert in stress analysis) Dr. Richard Belkengren, 7123 S. Clyde Avenue, 
bio-chemist and plant histologist| and Dr. Charles A. Coffey, 8343 Riiodes Avenue, 
research expert in oils and fats. 

Promotions have been given to Dr. Francis W. Godwin, 6731 Chappell Avenue, 
formerly head of the chemical engineering department of the Foundation, who becomes 
assistant director of the Foundation. Dr. Martin H. Heeren, research e^rpert in 
chemical engineering, who has been appointed chairman of chemical engineering research. 

In order to more effectively use the talents of the entire research staff of 
the Foundation, there has been established what is knovm as the Armour Plan for 
Industrial Research-. This plan, as the name implies, tends to produce a completely

Ti^;^ .'C-;5' 






-2- 
cooperative effort by every staff member toward the solution of every research pro- 
blem insofar as that staff members special abilities can contribute to the whole. 

Departments originally created to handle the various research projects presented 
by industry have grown to such an extent, according to Mr. Vagtborg, that it was 
necessaiy to modify research administration under the Plan. To this end the old 
departmental organization of the Foundation has been abandoned and four closely 
coordinated sections have been established. These sections are: physics, chemical 
engineering, metallurgy, and experimental engineering. Each section has a chairman 
rather than a department head. 

Dr. Godwin, newly appointed assistant director of the Foundation, was bom in 
Washington, D. C. and educated at San Diego State College, (San Diego, California). 
He received his Master's and Doctor's Degrees from the State University of Iov:a 
(Iowa City). His parents reside in Spring Valley, California. 

Dr. Godwin joined the Research Foundation of Armour Institute of Technology, 
now the Armour Research Foundation at Illinois Tech, in 1938 as director of coal 
research. He is famous for developing "colloidal fuel" (liquid coal) which has been 
used experimentally to heat homes and run automobiles. He also developed the equip- 
ment and technique for the taking of still pictures at exposure times of one-one- 
miUionth of a second. 

Dr. Clayton 0. Dohrenv/end, who is a noted civil engineer and formerly on the 
staff of Armour Institute of Technology, is a native of New Britain, Connecticut, and 
comes to the Foundation from a position as assistant professor of advanced mechanics 
at the University of Connecticut, (Storrs) . Since 1939, Dr. Dohrenwend has been 
associated with the Pratt and Whitney division of the United States Aircraft graduate 
engineering school at Connecticut in research and teaching. His parents reside at 
139 Lincoln Street, New Britain, Conn.

RE: REGISTRATION BEGINS - NEW COURSES AND 
FACULTY Ii/[EB/iB£RSo 

RELEASE: FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEIviBER U, 19/^1. 



Illinois Institute of Technology, beginning its second year under the new name, 
will open registration for engineering, architecture, and the arts and sciences 
tomorrov/, Monday, September 15, 194.1. Registration for day school students will take 
place during the day and until 5 o'clock in the evening. Night school students will 
register from 6 o'clock until 9 o'clock in the evening on both campuses. 

Early registrations for day school studies in engineering indicate an increase 
in enrollment for the Armour College of Engineering division, xvhich is located on the 
south side campus. This is the old campus of Armour Institute of Technology. It is 
expected, according to Registrar W, £, Kelly, that there will be an advance in regis- 
trations amounting to 10 per cent. 

According to the new plan for the Levris Institiite of j"irts and Sciences division 
of the Institute, located on the West Side cajnpus, formerly that of Lewis Institute, 
before the consolidsition of Armour and Lev/is Institutes, the semester plan will be in 
use. Formerly, Lewis Institute operated on the quarter system. The change has been 
made to facilitate registration and operation placing both divisions of the Institute 
under the same system. 

All new students in engineering, architecture, and the arts and sciences will 
J?egister tomorrow; This includes fre'shmen and those coming to the Institute with

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thtirsday, all nevv students will take orientation exa- 
ninations and receive assignments to student orientation groups for familiarization 
with institutional activities, policies and programs. On Friday, September 19th, all 
returning students vrill register. Classes begin the following Monday, Sptember 22, 

Registration for night school classes, in a v/ide variety of subjects ?;ill con- 
tinue tbjToughout the coming tv70 weeks. Faculty counsellors Tfill be available each 
svening from 6 until 9 o'clock for the puirpose of assisting students plan their 
3tudies either for degree work or for special study leading to knowledge of a specific 
field in which they are employed. Registration on Saturdays closes at 4- p.m. 

According to the Dean of the Evening Session, H. P. Button, the Institute again 
vill offer a program of evening study, extending over a period of seven to eight 
/"ears, during which the student may, exclusively through night study, obtain the degree 
3f Bachelor of Science in engineering, or the arts and sciences. 

Collectively therefore, this is the broadest teaching 'program in the history of 
the Institute. Enrollment of some 7,000 day and evening school students is expected. 
En order to meet the demand for increased facilities, staff and equipment, the summer 
Df 194-1 has been spent in adding replacement to equipment and staff and augmenting 
curricula to meet the need for new studies. Ti'fO new departments have been created 
and a third has been completely reorganized. 

The new departments are engineering drawing and industrial engineering. Head of 
the engineering drawing department v/ill be Dr. H. C. Spencer, 6139 S. Kenwood Avenue, 
vho comes to the Institute from the position as head of engineering drawing at Texas 
Agricultural and Mechanical College ( College Station, Texas), H. P. Button, with the 
Institute since 1933 and Bean of evening sessions, professor of business management 
and chainnan of social science, becomes head of the department of industrial engineer- 
ing. 

Completely reorganized is the department of home economics of the Lewis division 
of the Institute. New department head is Dr. Ruth C. Clouse, former nutrition expert

On the Armour campus, where all engineering studies have been centered, vjith the 
exception of a few freshman courses to be given on the Leviris campus, a new option in 
aeronautical engineering has been established. This makes the Institute the sole 
engineering school in the State of Illinois and the middle-west to offer such a pro- 
gram leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. Present sophomore engineers 
(civil or mechanical only) may elect the aeronautical option next year. 

In the architecture department, a fifth year has been added to the degree program, 
calling for specialization in architecture and city or regional and city planning. 
The vrork in city or regional planning will be conducted under the supervision of 
Ludwig K. Hilberseimer, world authority on the subject.

FOR RELEASE: THUflSDAY, SEPTEIiilBER 11, 19^1. 



Like a famous brand of toilet soap, the 194-1 graduating class of Armour College 
of Engineering division of Illinois Institute of Teciinology can claim to be 99.44-^ 
pleasing to its public. 

This appeared today on announcement of John J. Schommer, director of placement, 
that such a percentage of the Institute's Jiine class of the South-side campus had 
received positions in industry, with a majority of members offered at least five jobs. 

Only one man, a graduate of the chemical engineering department, remained 
unplaced, and he of his ovm volition. His parents refused to allovir him to work in 
Washington, D. C. 

Architectural students, and civil, electrical, fire protection, mechanical 
engineering and engineering science students v/ere placed lOO/o according to their 
departments. One hundred and ninety, in a class v;ith one coed, had received diplomas. 

The average initial monthly salary was $139.90, as against $100 paid in 193S, 
$110.82 in 1939 and $119.20 in 194-0. Architects average pay this year vras $14-2.78, 
chemical engineers $139.93, civil engineers $136.92, electrical engineers $137.47, fire 
protection engineers $135, mechanical engineers $14.2.68, and engineering science 
students $130.

Average initial salary paid 16 graduate students placed was $156.77. One hundred 
and fifty-six firms interviewed the 194-1 graduates. Exclusive of the class of 194-1 j 
596 positions, only 82 of which were part-time, were found for other Armour division 
students. 

"The Institute's placement department has broken several of its records this 
year," Schommer said in releasing the statistics. 

"The largest number of placements in the history of the college have been made. 
The highest initial, average monthly salaiy has been obtained. The largest number of 
potential employers visited the placement office. The largest nuinber of alumni 
placements were made . " 

In the alumni placement field, many job changes involved positions of greater 
responsibility and, in many instances, greatly increased salaries, Schoimner said. 
Often the offer of another position brought to the placement office registrant 
advancement in rank, increased salary and bonus. 

Success of the placement department this year was due the emergency arising from 
total rearmament of the nation, Schommer declared. 

One student, Donald Crego, 6l28 Dorchester Avenue, who graduated in mechanical 
engineering, had twenty interviews and fourteen offers of positions. He chose the 
Crane Company, 4-100 S. Kedzie Avenue, where he is employed in the research department. 

No member of the June class, hov/ever approached the record of a student who 
graduated in February, 194-1, after a five year mechanical engineering cooperative 
course and took employment in a Michigan automobile factory as a. die designer at a 
salary of $325 per month.

FOR IM'IEDIATE RELEASE 



School bells livill ring out for approxLTiately 3,500 students of the evening 
division of Illinois Institiate of Technology beginning Monday, September 29, to mark 
opening of the 194-1-4-2 Fall semester. 

Both at Armour College of Engineering (South-side) and Ler-is Institute of Arts 
and Sciences (West-side) campuses evening division registration began last Monday, 
(9/15/41), to continue until Saturday (9/20/4-1), at i,. p.m. Graduate division regis- 
tration begins tomorrow (9/22/4-1) and continues through Friday, including evening 
classes. 

A sizable gain in enrollment is predicted by H. P. Dutton, 2242 Pioneer Road, 
Evanston, Illinois, dean of the evening division. Architecture, chem.ical, civil, 
mechanical, fire protection, industrial and electrical engineering courses will be 
among subjects offered at Arm.our division. 

The Armiour campus is located betv/een Dearborn and Federal Streets at 33rd Street. 
.Architecture classrooms are located in the Art Institute at Michigan A.venue and 
Adams Street. The Lewis cam.pus is located at 1951 W. Madison Street, at the corner 
of Damen. Day school opens at both Lewis and Armour tomorrow.

At Lewis canpus metallurgy, as a part o£ chemical engineering, basic mechsjaical 
engineering subjects and mechanics v;ill comprise engineering subjects offered. Kov;- 
ever, physics, chemistry and mathematics, prominent ai the Armour curricula as well as 
its full scope of engineering subjects, will also be taught at Lewis, accenting the 
full liberal ai-ts program given. 

Pre-professional, vocational and business courses nave been traditionally popu- 
lar in the evening division at Lewis. The newly reorganized home economics course, 
containing this year for the first time applied arts classes, will be featured for 
business girls v;ho wish to learn at night. 

Earliest classes at Armour start at 6:20 p*:*;.. and at Levjis at 4-:20 p.m. Graduate 
school classes on the average begin at 7 p.m., som.e commencing at 6:30 p.m. For a 
few graduate subjects instruction is on Saturdays from 10 a.m., to 12 noon. 

Reflecting the addition of industrial engineering and engineering drawing depart- 
ments as new degree-earning fields at Armour division, a large demand for classes in 
both is expected. Dean I>atton said that national defense demands will cause increased 
interest not only in all engineering subjects and related sciences but in such courses 
that relate to the marketing, production and m.anagement phases of industry. 

Among architecture courses, that in analysis of function, planning and design 
is likely to prove of great popularity. Taught by Ludwig Hilberseimer, 3017 E. 78th 
Street, professor of city planning, the course will have immediate relation to pro- 
blems concerning reconstruction of urban areas. 

Hilberseimer, famous throughout Europe when connected with development of new 
housing projects ia great German and continental cities, came to Illinois Tech's 
faculty in 1938. The vast upbuilding of European cities to be called for following 
the current war, and the general rehabilitation of American cities called for under 
national zoning commissions, will create a market for architects adapted to modex-n 
methods, authorities believe.

General engineering subjects, considered difficult for study even by full-time, 
day students, are taught at Armour division evening school on a seven-year plan that 
is, on its record, more than successful. 

Since union of Armour and Lewis campuses in July, 19-^0, quite commonly students 
have taken the first three years of their seven-year course at Leyris division and then 
switched to Armour. This has proved to be an immense geographical advantage to poten- 
tial engineers living on the West gide. 

Elements of fire protection engineering and insurance practice i?.'ill be two courses 
taught in the department of fire protection engineering. Industrial management, begin- 
ning and advanced economics, time and motion study, and business policy will be taught 
in the industrial engineering courses. 

For students wishing to pursue ";ork but not take credit for it, Armour evening 
courses have alv^ays been adaptable. In the last six montns, however, some of this 
type of student have enrolled in free, non-credit engineering defense training courses 
sponsored by the Government. 

There will be no evening engineering defense training classes beginning concurr- 
ently with the first evening semester this Fall, however, and regular courses in 
mechanical engineering such as machine tool work, rjelding, mechanism and adva-nced 
machine design, will serve many high-school graduates anxious to advance themselves 
in their respective factories and plejits. 

A. large portion of night students at Lewis each year are school teachers an^cious 
to complete degTee programs after graduation from normal schools. This year a wide 
variety of education and psychology courses v/ill accormaodate them. 

"Adjustment and Guidance of Secondary School Pupils" will be taught by Butler 
Laughlin, 74-01 Bennett Avenue, nationally-famous educator. "Production of Radio 
Programs," "Radio in Education," and "Radio Yifriting," will be a trio of subjects 
streamlined to offer the latest techniques for progressive pedagogues.

FOR IffflEDlATE RELEASE 



A most unusual alumni group has come into being among men of the Chicago area 
who sang no school or fraternity songs together, paid no tuition for the privilege of 
knoxving each other, received no credits for their school work, and vrould not have been 
seen with a prom queen if bribed o 

Ties that bind members of the Industrial Management Forum of Illinois, as the 
group calls itself, were formed in classrooms of Illinois Institute of Tecimology. 
The Institute and the United States Office of Education were their scholastic god- 
parents. The fraternity they belonged to was that of hard work. 

They were twenty members of Class 15 C in the first engineering defense training 
Program at the Institute,, It began January 6 and concluded fifteen vreeks later o Each 
Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. they met at LeV'jis campus, to sit for t;70 hours during 
a course ±11 industrial m.anagement. 

All of them holders of day jobs as supervisors or foremen in plants and factor-

attributes the inspiration of the group to Svianson. 

"He taught his class so well it decided to keep on meeting after graduation," 
Stahnke says. 

The Forum gathers once a month at the Oak Park Arms Hotel. Dinner and monthly 
dues cost a dollar. Soup is served at 6:30 p.m. and each meeting is concluded by 
9s30 p.m. Since all but one member are married men, the broaking-up hour is rigidly 
adhered to, since, as a Fci''amite put it, "there is no such thing as domestic 
engineering," 

Featuring each meeting is a conferHncc of a pair or more members, or a lecture 
by a single one, on a phase of industrial managem.ent. A blackboard is used, the 
speaker, or speakers, adhering to strict classroom attitudes to convey the subject. 

Topics covered thus far have been typical of the sort these adult minds, devoted 
to self-improvement and steady in convictions that America is the domain of the enter- 
prising and resourceful, vmuld interest themselves. 

"Hov»- to Conduct /ji Intervievf," "Are Accidents Sabotaging Your Defense Orders?", 
and "Do Incentive Wage Plans Favor the Management or the Worker?" have helped to send 
Forumites home, the meeting over, still arg'aing their respective convictions. 

Learning to think on his feet, the ability to express abstract thought in con- 
crete, graphic fashion, and facility in holding attention of his audience are among 
benefits each derives from these extra-ciirricular educational soirees. 

The educational portion of a meeting is so balanced each member ra\ist, by reason 
of his presence, contribute some thouglit to the general discussions. No textbooks 
are employed but notebooks in front of listeners are often extensively employed to 
catch an outline of each point. 

Swanson's v/illingness to compile his notes for the engineering defense training 
■course in the form of s. mimeographed booklet has spurred members to keep complete notes

on meeting discussions. 

Many employment officers and other officials of companies over the nation have 
requested copies of the booklet, Intex-est in the Forum , on the part of men who have 
heard of it only by word of mouth, is such that several applications for membership 
have been made. 

Bylav;s of the group allov; "outsiders" to join if they are, or have been, "engaged 
in the direction of any phase of shojp management." The "improvement of its m.embers 
as industrial executives and the advancement of shop management" are the formal aims 
of the Forum. 

The enthusiasm of Stahnke and other Foriomites for the programs of engineering 
defense training conducted at the Institute is unbounded. 

Vernon Stahnke, his eldest son, a Juno graduate of Schurz High School, entered 
a course in metallurgical inspection during the third or summer engineering defense 
training program offered at the Institute. Very soon he expects to take a position in 
an airplane engine manufacturing plant in the Chicago area. 

Others of the Forumites have rccom-mended engineering defense training courses to 
friends and relatives. A few of them, time permitting, plan to enroll for impending 
evening courses. More than h.alf of them have gained increased salaries or some form 
of bonus or reward for having completed the training received free at the Institute. 

Officers of the Forum otlier than Stahnke are D. J. McGinnis, 3121 79th Avenue, 
Elmwood Park, vice president j Robert 0. Goold, 56O4. Middaugh Avenue, Doy.iiers Grove, 
Illinois, secretary^ and Ernst F. Engstrom, 1/^10 S. 3rd Avenue, Majnvood, Illinois, 
treasurer . 

Goold, a 1937 graduate of Michigan State Normal College, Ypsilanti, and holder of 
a masters degree from the school of business education of the University of Michigan, 
Ann Arbor, is a supervisor at the Goodman Manufacturing Company. 

McGinnis is a supervisor at Electrical Research Laboratories, Inc. A similar 
position is held by Engstrom at the Everhot Manufacturing Company,

LEWIS DIVISION OF ILLINOIS TECH. 

FOR RELEASE: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEivffiER 17, 1%J 



"fi/tunicipal Organization in the Chicago Metropolitan Area" is the title of a 
course to be given in the evening division of Illinois Institute of Technology during 
the Fall seraester by Dr. Victor Jones, assistant professor of political science. 

To be taught at Lewis division of the Institute Tuesdays from 6; 20 p.m. to 
8 p.m., the course v;ill begin September 30. The evening division semester begins 
Monday, September 29, at Lefjis and Armour campuses. 

Dr. Jones will explore the social, economic and historical background of 
Chicago's many goverrjnents. The organization, functions and interrelationships of the 
United States, Illinois, Cook County, sanitary district, park district, and city wards 
will be examined minutely. 

Traction, transit, consumer prices, priorities as they relate to the city's 
industry and politico-socio patterns, the city manager plsn, the place of nev/spapers 
in Chicago's municipal progress, parties and elections and the relation of local pro- 
blems to national defense v/ill be considered. 

The place of a board of education in the life of a metropolis, and the govern- 
ment of Chicago's suburban municipalities v-dll be developed.

R£; REGISTRATION WEEK AT ILLINOIS TECHj 

FPu£.3"ffl/lEI\i TME ORIETJTATION TESTS 5 STUDENT 
ASSEMBLIES; FRAT RUSHING. 

'FOR DfffiDIATE RELEASE 



A booming fresliman enrollment, eclipsing past attendance records as na.tional 
defense needs spur engineering studies, is indicated today (9/19/4-1) as a frenzied 
registration week comes to a close at Illinois Institute of Technology. 

Freshmen, ?;ho Monday reported for registration and enrollment at An^raour and Lewis 
campuses, matriculated in numbers that will exceed by 10 per cent the figure for the 
comparable semester last year, W. E. Kelly, registrar, said,, 

Tlie I94.O-4.I figure was 4.26 for Fall semester fresr^nen v.^hile that of the incoming 
class r/ill probably reach 470 by the time school begins Monday morning. 

A majority of ne?/ students, except incoming graduate students, T'fill have regis- 
tered by tonight. The major portion of the ;7eek, hov;ever, has been occupied 'oy acti- 
vities designed to orient fresrmen to scholastic and social realities of the Institute. 

One fi'eshm.an, slightly less bevjildered than his nates, is Earl Simanek, 
3412 N. Avers Avenue. A gi-aduate of Lane Technical High oCj> -jil's class ci 1>33, Earl 
in 1940 finished a tvfo-year liberal arts course at Wright Junxor College, he came to 
Armour College of Engineering because he \vants to be a civil engineer. 



-2- 

"If a fellow is vj-illing to work hard, he can today take at least one course of 
study of greatest benefit to himself and the country," said Earl, a thoughtful- 
20-year-old, who v/orks evenings in a Loop clothing store as a salesman. 

"I think that to bo an engineer in times like these is the most adventurous, and 
probably the best-paid, professional job one could have." 

Earl's mind, though it has a firm grip on facts of the business v/orld in v/hich 
he earns his tuition, is that of the normal undergraduate in its enthusiasms. Sports, 
fraternity life and student activities beckon as a means of satisfying his craving 
to be a prominent-man-on-campus • 

With other freslimen Earl lined up Monday in the long queue running to the desk 
of W. E. Kelly, registrar. Checking of academic credits, filing of application forms 
and receipt of tuition, laboratory breakage and student activities bills took up 
about twenty minutes of each student's time. 

Further registration with his department he.Md, who advised him of classes to take 
or omit depending on his scholastic backgi'ound, kept Earl busy the balance of the 
forenoon. In the afternoon he was part of a line stretching the length of the second 
floor of Armour's Main building. Earl counted and recounted items of his fee sheet. 

Finally, when the line by fits and starts had moved Earl up to the wicket vfindow 
of Henry B. Watson, business office assistant^ the perspiring frestuuan pulled his 
check book from his coat pocket and cancelled financial obligations to his nev; alma 
mater . 

"I vrorked hard for this dough," Earl said to Watson. 

"Tnen you'll know how to make it count," Watson replied. 

Tuesday morning Earl sat in one of several lecture halls and underwent the first 
of a series of exlaaustive tests that proposed to orient niu.i scholasticalTy. Wi.iat liis 
mark will be, he won't know for several weeks. Each year 'cha intelligence derominator 
of the fresliman class is a topic of conversation for students as vrell as faculty. 



-3- 

Tuesday morning Earl also heard President H= T. Heald address a freshman assembly 
in the Student Union audi tor iiini. In the afternoon he took further orientation tests. 
Concluding tests of the same stripe were held Wednesday until noon. 

At noon Wednesday fraternity luncheons and other Greek letter social events got 
under v;ay in earnest. Earl, v/hose class average in high school and junior college 
was among those of leaders j, and v/ho at Lane Tech won a major letter as a half-railer 
in track and v;as captain of the fencing team as well, seems a likely prospect for any 
of eight fraternities at Armour campus. 

Earl had lunch at the Pi Kappa Phi house, 3337 S. Michigan Avenue, early in the 
week, ?;as pledged by them, and v;ill v;ear their pledge pin during the first semester. 
If his scholastic progress satisfies the office of the dean, and he is acceptable to 
the fraternity, he will be made a full-fledged member in Fehniary. 

When any freshman, such as Earl, \Yeighing approximately 170 pounds and about 
5 feet 10 inches in height meanders about Ai-mour campus he is likely to be accosted 
by Bernard Weissman, assistarit athletic director. Earl, v/ho looks like the athlete 
he v;as in high school, has promised Weissman to turn out for trf^ck and fencing. 

Earl ViTas among squG.ds of fresiii'nen put under a group leader, v:ho conducted his 
yearling cha.rgGS about the carapus and explained points of interest and matters of 
tradition a.nd procedure. He learned of the proposed $3,000,000 v;orth of buildings 
the Institute is contemplating and inspected two square blocks of property now being 
cleared of old buildings prior to the erection of Technology Center, as the new carapus 
will be known. 

At the Pi Kappa Phi house Earl was put to polishing the somewhat stained 'Greek 
letters that identify the building. It is among the many menial tasks he and other 
pledges will be asked to perform before they are admitted to complete membership. 

But the real business of his coming to Armour College of Enginesring of the Insti- 
tute, school work, will occupy Earl completely beginning Monday, September 22. At 
8:30 a.m. that day he v/ill be among a motley group of green-capped freshmen who stroll 
into classrooms and take their seats in a v/hat is a new world.

RE; ATOM SLIASKSR AT ELECTROCHEMICAL E}aiIBIT 

OCT. 2, 3 , 4., 1941 - Knickerbocker Hotel 



FOR livllEDlATE RELEASE 



Because a man said to himself, "I JUST WMT TO KNOW", Illinois Institute of 
Technology's physics department is spending some $5)000 on the initial cost of an 
electrostatic generator , more com:iionly Imorm as an ATOM SflA.3HER. 

The man is research physicist, Dr. Yf. R. Kanne, 931 Hyde Park Blvd., assistant 
professor of physics at the south-side engineering school. He had ideas about the 
nucleus of the atom that started him on his investigations in the middle 1930' s and 
led up to the construction of an apparatus that looks v.eird, promises to be excep- 
tionally effective and weighs about 4- tons. It will probably come closer to being 
the world's smallest, rather than the vrorld's largest ATOM SMASI-IER. 

When the apparatus is completed, Dr. Kanne will bombard the atom with a stream 
of energy in the magnitude of 10,000 miles per second. He will learn, he expects, 
more about the mechanical properties of the nucleus of the atom, what holds it to- 
gether, and what happens when certain forces are upset v/ithin its being. From such 
investigations, with sufficient factual data, it may be possible to predict nuclear 
actions for a host of varying conditions. 

He is a tall, lanky individual wlio talks about theory of nuclear physics with 
the ?;ords of an ejrpert, yet he doesn't miss the importance of its practical applica- 
tion. He emphasizes the point however, that he is primarily interested in learning. 



-2- 

by means of experiment and fact-finding, about the properties of the nucleus of the 
atom. 

Dr. Karaie explains that, at the present time^ ATOL'I SLlJlSHfilS have a good field of 
application in medicine, biology and in chemistry - he plans investigation upon the 
nucleus of the atom itself, not especially directed tovra.rd industrial application. 
However J factual data, experimental facts may, during the process of his investige.- 
tions, result in certain important and startling industrial applications. 

A model of Dr. Kanne's ATOM SMSKER is no?/ almost complete and will be on display 
next vjeek during the 80th meeting of the Electrochemic.:.! Society. The meeting will 
be held in the Knickerbocker Hotel, October 1st to UVi.-, '.vitn many of the members 
exhibitir.g equipment and processes used in the electro-chemical field. Illinois 
Institute of Technology v/ill be one of several colleges and universities represented 
with the educational exhibits. 

Dr. Kanne began investigating the action of the atom nuclet;s while studying for 
his doctorate degree at Jolms Hopkins University in 1935- At that time he worked 
with a natural source of radiation, POLONIUIil, bomba.rding alumninum. Later, he joined '•■ 
the staff of the University of Wisconsin and for a while vjorked with the famous 
theoretical physicist. Dr. Gregory Breit. His work at the Badger State school was a 
direct investigation of "the forces triat hold together the nuclear particles of the 
atom." He joined the staff of Illinois Institute of Technology in the fall of 194-0 
as an assistant professor of physics and began his research work at the Institute at 
that time . 

Just what his "electrostatic generator" v/ill accomplish in the investigation of 
the nucleus of the atom, Dr. Kanne is reluctant to admit - for, he says, "I don't 
knowl " Several of his colleagues throughout the United States are conducting investi- 
gations, each directed tov:ard a specific objective. Thej^ are all more or less in the 
dark, so to speak. 



-3- 

Dr, Kanne e>rplains his researches by drawing an analogy betv;een "atom- smashing" 
physicists and blind men v.-ho, not having an adequate sense of feeling, grope for know- 
ledge by, relatively speaking, bouncing balls against a wall, and by the type, shape 
or form of the rebound, draw a mental pictuxe of what shape the walls may be= "Atom- 
smashing", he reiterates, is somewhat the ss-me process. 

"Tte generate a stream of energy particles, accelerate them to very high velocities 
and bounce them against certain materials v;e knov;, and by the deflections or rebounds 
we attempt to determine some of the properties of the atom. This is one of the 
important types of nuclear experiments." 

Just how Dr. Kanne will conduct his experiment is illustrated to some extent by 
the model of his ATOM SfclASHER, to be exiiibited this Treek at the Electro-chemical 
Society Shov; in the Knickerbocker Hotel. The real thing, housed at the Institute's 
south-side campus, is a much more impressive-looking piece of apparatus. Looking much 
like a decompression chamber, it weighs a.pproximately 4- tons, complete with electrical 
equipment. Costing thus far some $5,000, it is expected to develop a stream of con- 
centrated energy of from one and one-half to two million volts. 

Tlie high voltage and the relatively small size of the appa.ratus are euiiong its chief 
unusual general characteristics. Its chief scientific characteristics, so far as planne 
investigations are concerned, is the fact that the speed of enmiission of the energy 
can very accurately be determined and controlled, and varied according to the taste of 
the investigator. 

Contrary'- to common belief, the scientist investigating the atom bj^ means of elec- 
trostatic generators, in which class the famous CYCLOTRONS fall, is not looking for a 
large spark. Tliis latter, in fact, according to Dr. Kanne, is just v/hat the scientist 
is guarding against. 

The apparatus developed by Dr. Kanne is small because of the fact that actual 
energy accelerating and prodtiction is carried on a tank where a pressure of some 150 
pounds per square inch is maintained. Tliis makes it possible, without the use of huge 



-u- 

equipnient, to develop energy in the order of magnitude of one to tv/o million volts 
necessary to bombard the atom. 

Although the actual process of developing the high voltage is a complex one, a 
fev/ of the principles should be jr.entioned. E>:ternally created energy of a.pproxiiTiately 
50,000 volts is introduced to the tank, sprayed upon an ordinary canvass belt, and 
carried the length of the tank to the high voltage electrode at the other end. The 
entire system, perfectly balanced electrically, permits the development of the high 
voltage in a small space. The stream of energ;.^, concontrateP by vvhat Dr. Kanne calls 
an ''accelerating tube," is drax^n from the electrode anc"' directed to^vards the control 
end of the apparatus at a speed of approximately 10,000 uiiles per second. 

The "tagged atoms," produced by the techniques of nuclear physics, according to 
Dr. K8.nne, have particularly u.se v/here minute quantities of material, or great d.ilu- 
tions are involved. Metallic diffusion and self -diffusion have been given consider- 
able study with these techniques. 

"The corrosion factor in steam boiler tubes, the rate of reaction in the formation 
of slag in blast furnaces, and the rate of solution of carbides on high temperature 
annealing have been studied," according to Dr. Kanne. "Tracer isotopes have been 
useful in rapid, and accurate routine analysis. 

"The radiations produced by such high voltage apparatus has miade industrial rad.io- 
graphy far more versatile than heretofore,'' he em.phasized. 

The field of nuclear physics has brought the solution of many problems in remote 
fields. The gaps in the periodic table have been filled, and. siirprising chemiical pro- 
perties of the nei'7 elements have been discovered. The action of vitajnins have been 
studied. 

"The importance of this field," according to Dr. Kanne, "will undoubtedly be more 
far reaching than that of X-rays, and it is hoped that the work being developed at 
Illinois Institute of Technology will contribute to this rapidly growing technique."

RE: LI..ST WEFX OF REGISTRATION FOR EVENING 
DIVISION CL. 'SE3 AT ILLINOIS TECKj 
FODOR COURSE NOTABLE. 

FOR RELEASES MONDAY, SFPTEl-iBSR 22, 194-1 



TliO last week of registration for classes in the evening session of Illinois 
Institute of Technology coioinences today (9/22/4-1) as an inviting array of courses 
awaits students for whc;!i school starts ne.K.t in'cnday evening. 

Notable among ap .proximately 185 classes to be divided into undergraduate sub- 
jects at Levvis campus and undergraduate and graduate subjects at Armour campus is that 
to be offered in the department of history, political science and sociology under the 
title of "Problems of Reconstruction." 

Marcel W. Fodor, professorial lecturer in social science, v;ill teach the course, 
to be given Mondays at Lewis division, 1951 W. Madison Street, from 6:20 p.m. to 
S p.m. DOROThT THOMPSON, WILLIM SHIRER, PAUL van Z££Li\ND and GRAHAM tlUTTOH vdll 
compose a quartet of guest lecturers, each to appear singly for one class session 
under Fodor's sponsorship. 

Miss Thompson and Shirer, famous foreign correspondents and political and radio 
commentators, and van Zeeland and Hutton, the former the last "free" Belgian prime 
minister and the latter an internationally-famous figure as editor of The London 
Economist , have not as yet set dates for their lectures because of the press of heajy 
schedules. Amouncement vjill be made shortly of individual appeari.nces. 

Immense interest centers in circumstances by which the appiearance of the gueat 
lecturers was made possible, Fodor, famous correspondent from Vienna, Bucharest 



and Budapest and other v;orld capitalaj for Tlie Manchester Guardian , The Chicago Daily 
News and other publications, came to know each in the line of journalistic duty. He 
joined the Institute's faculty in 19A0. 

Dorothy Thompson, whose \?ritings have reflected the influence of Fodcr's thought, 
particularly where they have concerned the Balkan section of Europe, aclcnowledges 
Fodor as fostering her inspiration. 

She attended Levris Institute (a year ago joined with Armour Institute of 
Technology) in ].910-11. By a coincidence, she will be teaching in the same classroom 
where once she was a pupil. 

William Shirer, forraer Chicago . Tribune foreign correspondent, well-laioivn for his 
commentating over Columbia Broadcasting S^/stom. since 1937, and author of the best- 
selling Berlin Diary , is a native of Chicago. His latest book refers to Fodor and 
the letter's wife, Martha. 

Paul van Zeeland, former prime minister of foreign affairs and exterior commerce 
of Belgium, and notable for his wide experience with practical econom.ic problems, is 
now living in the United States as a refuge efrom Either teri-or. 

Graham Hutton, recently made director of British press information in Chicago, 
has had a distinguished career as a journalist, author and economist, practical and 
theoretical. Under Sir ?felter Layton he was assistant managing editor of The London 
Economist for many ye^irs. 

Many interesting courses will be given at Armour campus, located between Decrbor' 
and Federal Streets at 33rd Street. 

Reflecting the addition of industrial engineering and engineering dra?njig depart- - 
ments as new degree-earning fields at Armour division, a li-.rge demand for classes in 
both is expected. National defense demands have caused increased interest not onl.: ■' 
all engineering subjects and related sciences but in such courses as relate to the 
marketing, production and management phases of industry. 



, -3- 

Among architecture courses to be taught at the Art Institute, that in ani.lysis 
of function, planning and design is likely to prove of great popularity. Taught by 
Ludwig Hilberseimer, professor of city planning, the course v/ill have imiTiediate 
relation to problems concerning reconstruction of urban areas. 

Hilberseimer, famous tliroughout Europe when connected Y,'ith development of nev; 
housing projects in great Germ.an and continental cities, came to Illinois Tech's 
faculty in 1938. The vast upbuilding of European cities to be called for following 
the current war, and the general rehabilitation of Air.erican cities called for under 
national zoning coniiTiissions, '''ill create a market for architects adapted to modem 
methods, authorities believe. 

General engineering subjects, considered difficult for study even by full-time, 
day students, are taught at jh'uour division evening school on a seven-year plan that 
is, on its record, more than successful. 

Since union of Armour and Lev;is campuses in July, 194-0, quite comiTionly students 
have taken the first tliree years of their seven-year course at Levis division and then 
switched to Armour. This has proved to be nn iiiuaense geograjihical advantage to poten- 
tial engineers living on the West Side. 

Elements of fire protection engineering and insurance practice will be two courses 
taught in the department of fire protection engineering. Industrial management, begin- 
ning and advanced economics, time and motion study, and business policy will be taught 
in the industrial engineering courses. 

For students wishing to pursue vrork but not take credit for it, Armour evening 

courses have always been adaptable. In the last six months, however, some of this 

tj^De of student have enrolled in free, non-credit engineering defense training ccur^j- 

spon sored by the Government. 

There will be no evening engineering defense training clu.^S'^'S begir.:?iug concur;- 

ently with the first evening semester this Fall, however, and regular courses in 
mechanical engineering such as machine tool vrork, welding, mechanism and advanced 
machine design, will serve many high-school graduates anxious to advance themselves 
in their respective factories and plants.

FOR" IMvLRDIATE RELEiiSE 



Fulfillment of the gas industry" s drean: of a scientifically-trained research 
corps, vihich '."Tould have edticational functions as a public service, have taken a long- 
awaited step toward realitj- with opening tliis semester at Illinois Institute of 
Technologj'- cf the Institute of Gas Teclmology. 

A million dollar gxant, to be spent in mininum yearly amounts of $100,000 for 
ten ye.ai's, was last summer advanced by seventeen leading gas companies of the nation 
for the specific purposes of training scholars for the gas industry, collecting and 
disseminating scientific information, and encouraging research within the industry. 

Robert M. Nevrhall, 11 Keene Street, Stockton, Massachusetts, a '41 graduate of 
Tufts Collegaj Henry E. Robison, 3753 Gravois Street, St. Louis, Missouri, a '41 grad- 
uate of Washington University! Alexander K. MikTilski, 9232 Rosev'.'ood Avenue, Cleveland, 
Ohio, a '41 graduate of Fenn College; and Gerald J, Lubin, 5004 Parker Avenue, 
Detroit, Michigan, a '41 graduate of the University of Detroit, are the first recipi- 
ents of four-year fellowships at the new Institute. 

A program of stimulating research and findijig trained personnel has its concrete 

applications in the selection of these college graduates for study under experts at 

the Institute of Gas Technology. Eventually sixty similarly-selected fellovirs v/ill be 

at school, working for M.S. and Ph.D. degi-ees in various fields of gas teclmology, 
when the full fellov/ship plan evolves. 



The four fellov;s livej like mcaiy students doing graduate work at Illinois 
Institute of Technology, in the school's Graduate House, 3254- S. Michigan Avenue. 
Each receives $1,000 per year, for four years. Tuition, valued at $325 per year, is 
deducted from the av;ard. Summer ?rork at a minimum of $125 per mouth will be furnished 
by the gas industry. 

Bulldingsto house the Institute of Gas Teclinology as a separate unit on the 
Illinois Tech campus are contemplated. At present, a section of a recently-constructed 
research building fronting east on State Street j.n the 3300 block has been remodeled 
to serve as headquarters and classrooms for the project. 

Members of staffs of tv/o pre-e:d.sting units on the Illinois Tech's campus are a 
major part of the new gas research faculty. Dr. Lincoln R. Thiesmeyer, appointed 
student advisor of the ne?; Institute by Harold Vagtborg, its director, is a fsinous 
geologist. Harvard- trained, and lately chairman of the department of physical sciences 
and mathematics at LawTence College, Apple ton, Wisconsin. His a3sista.nts will be 
exports dra\im from the graduate school of Illinois Tech and the Armour Research 
Foundation at the Institute. 

Equipment of classrooms and laboratories will be in several respects a departure 
from standard or routine uses. Because the gas industry supports no other similar 
institute in America, and chose the locale of Illinois Institute of Teclinology from 
among engineering schools of the land, traditions likely to influence greatly the 
applied as v;ell as the theoretical phases of natur-al and artificial gas production 
and consumption are expected to be set. 

The first academic use of the newly-announced "hydrobot", a $2,500 fractional 
analysis apparatus, equipped with high-efficiency, heli-grid packed bellows-type 
super-cool columns, siiaplifyi.ng many ordinarily separated techniques of gas analysis 
and treating them in a cormected process, will be made at the Institute of Gas 
Technology, 



-3i 

Complete absorption gas analysis £p2oaratus will also be installed, total equip- 
ment cost being brought to approximately |5jOOO. Some functions of the hydrobot v/ill 
be analysis of gaseous and liquid products, natural gas, cracked refinery gas, poly- 
merizing plant gas, water gas, producer gas and gasoline storage tank vapors. 

The curriculum vifill include three years of academic training based on fundamental 
sciences and funda.mental research and the equivalent of a year of academic work in the 
background of the gas industry. Operation, management and regulation of public utili- 
ties v;ill be stressed. 

Equipment and material for manufacture, the storage and distribution of gas, by- 
prod^^ct3 of the gas industry, and management problems of the industry will be treated. 

Gas chemistry will be taught by Dr. R. C. Kintner, 8833 Dante Avenue^ associate 
professor of chemical engineering of Illinois Tech, and Dr. V. I, Komarev.'sky, 
54-39 Lake Park Avenue, research professor of chemistry a.t that institution. 

Heat transfer will be taught by Dr. Max Jakob, 5-412 East Vieyj Park, research 
professor of mechanical engineering at Illinois Tech. Professor Komarewsky -will teach 
catalysis, while chemical thernodjTiamics will be in the hand of Dr. Bruce Longtin, 
4-335 Drexel Avenue, instructor in chemistry. 

Dr. Victor L. Streeter of the department of mechanics of IllinorLw Tech will teach 
a course in fluid flov.'. Dr. J. ¥. Calkin, 1153 E. 54-th Street, will teach advanced 
mathematics. Dr. Thiesmeyer Y/ill teach geology in several phases and Dr. Sanford B.

of the latter two teams in his senior year. Some time in that final year, (open 
dates on the baseball card) he found the time to run the hurdles for the Maroons. Hif. 
hurdle racing dates back to Hinsdale High School where he was one time holder of the 
ftest Suburban Conference 120 yard high hurdle mark of 15.8 seconds.

REs CHA.RLES DONALD DaLLaS MD HAiiOLD SINES 
VANCE ELECTED TO BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF 
ILLINOIS TECH. 

FOR IICvIEDIATE REIxEASE 



Two industrial leaders of national prominence, Charles Donald Delias, president 
of Revere Copper ana Brasa, Incorporated, of New York City, and Harold Sinea Vance, 
chairman of the board of the Studebalcer Corporation, South Bend, Indiana, hav3 been 
elected to the board of trustees of Illinois Institute of Teclinology. 

This v;as announced today by James D. Cunninghaai, president of Republic Flow 
Meters Company and chairman of the board of trustees of the Institute. Addition of 
Dallas eaid Vance brings the total of trustees to fifty-five. 

Dallas, a recipient last June of an honorary doctor of engineering degree at 
commencement exercises of Armour and Lewis divisions of the Institute, is a member of 
the j'jrmour class of 1902. He is a native of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada o 

iiS a $3.00 per week office boy, Dallas began a busijiess career he was never to 
relinquish even v;hile a student. His first important position was r:ith the American 
Brass Company, for r-hon he worked many years. In 1908 he end his father, with a 
capitalisation of $10,000, incorporated in Chicago as A. C. Dallas and Son, acting as 
sales representatives for several eastern copper mills. 

The original firm began Tifith tV';o desks and one stenographer, growing ■until, in 
1912, it began to roll some of its ovm metal. 'When young Dallas became president in 
1918 and the firm's name was changed to the Dallas Brass and Copper Com.pany, the 



-2- 

first modern, casting and rolling mill of the company was bu'Mto 

The company capitalization now increased to ^^1, 300, 000, end the firm merged with 
several other companievS to form \?hat later became Revere Copper and BravSS, Incorporates 
In 1931 Dallas was made president of this corporation, which did a $67,000,000 
business in 194-0, and one of \fhose five plants is in Chicago. 

Author of You and Your Money . Dallas is president of the Federation of Church 
Clubs of the Episcopal Church and an officer of the National Industrial Conference 
Board and of the Copper and Brass Research Ascoci:ition. He was president, also, of 
the Hadley School for the Blind. 

Vance was born in Port Huron, Michigan, fifty-one j^^ears ago. His elementary' and 
high school education were gained .in the public schools and et the age of twenty he 
began vrorking for the Studebaker Corporation as an apprentice mechanic. His promo- 
tion was rapid. 

In 1912 Vance i^as tr'aisferrod to the specifications department and three years 
later was made assistant treasurer. In 1916 he was made director of purchases. A 
leave of absence in 1917 found him as prodviction engineer for the Bethlehem Steel 
Corporation, ^vherc he contri'Duted to the remarkable record made by that company iai war 
production at the time. 

Vance returned to the Studebaker Corporation as assistant to the president^ t?/o 
years later he was transferred to sales v;ork in the capacity of manager of the e:srport 
division. From 1923 to 1926 he served as general sales manager of the company. 
■ ■-' It v;as in 1926 that Vance, fully experienced in various phases of production and 
sales, vras made vice president in charge of production. With reorganization of the 
corporation in 1935 j he was made chairman of the board. 

One of the earliest requests by William S. Knudsen of President Roosevelt was for 

the appointment of Vance to head the critical machine tool division v;hen the former 

assumed his defense capacity. Vance served in this government capacity until in 
November, 194-0, when defense activities immediately concerning the Studebaker 
Corporation made his return imperative.

FOR imiEDIATE RELEilSE: 



In an engineering tichocl the reflexes of a nation rearming are many, but at 
Armour College of Engineering of Illinoi;:; Institute of Technology even a minor 
sport, rifle range shooting, has attracted in its ti'/entieth season so many enthusi- 
asts it threatens to become a major sport. 

With sixty students, many of them first semester freshjiien, turning out for 
indoor and outdoor practice sessions, Illinois Tech's selected ten-man rifle team 
squad, a unit separate from the Rifle Club but functioning as part of it, promises 
to be the most expert of many seasons. 

Responsible for this burst of enthusiasm among student engineers who normally 
find little time to spare for sport is a non-sport mctive. Student engineers are the 
young men-behind-the men-behind-the-guns and as siich claim exemption from draft law 
provisions that would place them in the army, v/here guns would replace bunsen burners. 

However, finding skill in the use of arms desirable as a matter of patriotism 
and individual self-sufficiency, the engineers-to-be are making every shot count on 
the rifle range as in the classroom. 



-2- 

In the basement of venerc.ble Physics Hall a fifty-foot rifle range, open nine 
hours a day six days a v;eek, has been completely refurnished this semester to 
accommodate the inflTx;<: of Rifle Club members. Complete white-washing and painting 
schemes, executed v/ith an eye to improving visual conditions, new lighting and heating 
accoraiT.odations, modern target backgrounds, and numerous smaller improvements have been 
installed. 

Raymond 11, Sm.ith, junior, fire protection engineering student v,'ho lives at 
3154- S. Michigan Avenue as a. member of iilpha Si:_;ma Phi fratornity, is president of 
the Illinois Tech Rifle Club. He won a four-year fire protection engineering 
scholarship from loungstovm, Ohio, High School. A member of the rifle tea^ii squad, 
he participated in all teeaa matches last season. 

Robert Cwiak, sophomore architectura.l student and member of Triangle fraternity, 
324.0 S. Michigan Avenue, is secretary of the Rifle Cli;b. Tedvjard (correct) A. 
Dum^etz, Jr., 5730 S. Calumet Avenue, is treasurer. The former a.ttended Von Steuben 
High School and the latter Englewood High School and both, siiot as members of the 
1940-41 team, 

Robert Bell, 6328 S. Morgan Street, junior electrical engineer, a graduate of 
Parker High School, is range officer, iimong other team members are Robert Zelin, 
3S37 Ti. 63rd Place, junior fire protection engineer, a graduate of Lindblon High - 
School, and Korman Carey, a member of Alpha Sigina fraternity, 3154- S. Michigan Avenue, 
a graduate of fi!ockford, Illinois, Central High School, v;hc vvill next year as a junior 
become a member of the aeronautical engineering option course. 

Traditional opponents of the Techark rifle team, are Stevens Institute of 
Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, BrcoKlyri Polyteclmic Institute, Drexel 
Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Tecb-nology, Missouri fcoool of 
Mines, Universit7>^ of Indiana, University of Illinois, the University of Chicago and 
Wneaton College.

Few of these teams will be engaged shoulder-to- shoulder during the current 
secugon, or ever were, since those at considerable distavace are "postal" matches,

meet, been outranked by collegiate opponents. 

Standard v'eapon used 'ay the jRifle Club is a Winchester ,52 costing $70. 
Telescopic sights, oach costing (i>30, to be used in examining target scores from a

FOR IliftlEDIATE RELEASE 



A pedant once called cheiuists "the poetu of tae la-boratory . " 

At Lewis division of Illinois Institute oi'' Technology, v:here the Chemistry Club 
has elected rnemherK for forty-cix years r.ith a "B'- average as minimiim requirements, 
there are no long-haired young me:; or elfin young women among its thirty members. 
All seem essentially, hov/ever, imaginative creators. 

A serious yet collegiate-looking group, the fingers of many steined slightly by 
acid and material residues, the undergraduate chemists are a heterogeneous gathering 
as they sit in the school cafeteria after a busy day in the laboratories. 

Ranging in age from fifteen to forty, some married, nearly all v/orking outside 
school for living and school expenses, they form a solid bloc among thei.r fellov/s. 
Their interests are highlj* specialized — they talk shop and little else. The govern- 
men and industry have a big role for them to play on graduation and they kno?/ this. 

A freshman, Gordon Campbell, 6330 N. Tonty Avenue, Edgobrook, this v;eek will 
cause an inviolable canon of the Chemistry Club to be shattered. He viill be elected 
to membership, the first freshman to merit the distinction. The son of a physician, 
Gordon hopes to folloiv in his father's profession. He graduated from Amundsen High 
School in June, 1939. 

Gordon is being elected to the inner sanctum of Lewis undergraduate chemists 
because he sim.plified, in one amazing step, chemistry instruction of a basic type. 



-2- 

He built a three-dimensional v/ooden model of what chernists know as "the periodic 
chart." 

As learning the arithmetical tables is to an elementary school student, so is 
learning the periodic chart to an embryo chemist. Standard representation of the 
periodic chart is that of a flat, map-like sheet of cardboard on which are printed in 
a long, agonizing rows the symbol and atomic niomber of each of the 92 knovm chemical 
elements. 

Many a student who liked to fuss with test tubes would fall short of the grim 
task of learning the periodic chart. To Norman Kharasch, 120 Main Street, Park Ridge, 
instructor in chemistry at the Institute, this had been borne out m-ore than once. 

Helen Skinner Mackenzie, assistant professor of chemistry and collaborator 
with Kharasch on A First Survey of Chemistry to be published in December, and the 
latter had puzzled for months over how best to represent graphically in their text- 
book the idea of the periodic chart. Gordon Campbell heai-d of this difficulty and in 
a conference with Kliarasch outlined a method by which the youth could turn his 
knowledge of wood-working to a practical account. 

Made of dowels and sphe.-es, the xvooden periodic chart was a month in building. 
It accurately represents the spatial arrangement of the elements in a thjree-foot cube 
superstructiire mounted on a swivel stand. Each element is represented, by a painted 
red ball labeled with its symbol and atomic number. Set inside the main cube is a 
smaller one, holding those elements Icno'.m as "the inner ring." 

A picture of Gordon's creation, adequately explained, will be featured in the 
forthcoming volume of his two teachers. E>:perience as an X-ray technician, gained 
during the interim between his high school and college study, encouraged the youth to 
find his chemical short-cut, he believes. 

Officers of the Chemistry Club, elected last week, are as follov/s:

Tliomas Cafcasj 8250 S. Bishop Street, president^ Thaddeus Kov/alski, 1621 W.

FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, 10/27/4-1 



The Chicago Foriam on Defense Production Problems will present as its principal 
spe:.ker, Arthur L. Olson, Assistant Vice-President of the Federal Reserve Bank 
tomorrow evening, October 28, 194-1, at SsOO P.M., at 176 W. Washington Street. 

Tomorrow' s Forum is one of a series of eight currently being presented hy 
Illinois Institute of Teclmology and the Chicago Commission on National Defense as 
a "service program" to aid manufacturers who have or may have defense contracts. The 
Forum is part of the Institute's Defense Itaining Progrs.m authorized by the United 
States Office of Education. 

Ml". Olson, who is in charge of loans and credits and defense contracts officer 
for the Federal Reserve Bank will speak to a gathering of manufacturers and business 
men and lavjyers on the vital subject, "Financing Defense Industries." 

^ith the Federal Reserve for 24- years as lawyer, economist and banker, Wt. Olson* 
knowledge of finance is singularly authoritative. He will tell the business men 
Tuesday evening how the Federal Reserve Bank and the Reconstruction Fino-nce 
Corporation along with the commercial banks are cooperating with the siaa,ll manufac- 
turers in solving complex finance problems which frequently arise from defense 
contracts. IJIr. Olson plans to devote ample tiirie in explaining emergency plant 
facility contracts and the financing of supply contracts. In addition, he will 
discuss the Defense Plant Corporation and Vidll explain the proper procedure in 



-2- 

amortizing defense costs of building construction and machinery. 

Discarding the lame notion that the financing of a defense contract is a puzzling 
procedure, ?,1r. Olson states: 

"The iatmdling of a contract is a relatively simple procedure if the manufacturer 
is prepared to anticipate future problems arising from that contract. The primar;/ 
purpose of ray talk is to aid the manufacturer in anticipating problems, which, if 
not foreseen, would prove to be most difficult." 

Scheduled to speak on Tuesday evening, November 4-th, is W. G. Bailey, Head of 
Priorities Division, Office of Production Management, Chicago.

Y;'ithin the next four or five vears, airports at such cities as Nevv Yox'k and 
Chicago (.'ill be handling about 735 air transport plane movements a day during peak 
travel :;eason3 as contrasted with the 200 more or less, v/hich they are experiencing 
in 1941, it v/as predicted today by Allan F. Bonnalie of United Air Lines, speaking 
at the fall engineering confer--nce of the Illinois Institute of Technology Jji Chi- 
cago. 

Discussing "The Capacity of Air Carrier Terminals", Bonnalie declared a 25 
per cent annual increase in airline business for the next fev/ years "is not at all 
out of order" . 

"It is reasonable, therefore, to e:qD0ct a demand four years hence for about 
735 plane movements for the maximum day at a city like Ne';i York and for Chicago a 
ye3.r or tv/o later," he said. "Nev; York's peak traffic can then be expected to be 
something over 60 airplanes an hour and, at Chicago, about 90 an hour a yetx or ti-io 
later. It is probable that, by that time, the increased size of airplanes v/ill flat- 
ten the growth curve of airplcjae movemont.s . " 

Bonnalie 's studj/ s'no'jed Chicago nou^ has approximately 190 air tro.nsport 
pj.ane movements a day, with as high as 23 during a peak hour, and Nev; York City's 
LaGuardia airport, 24-4 airliner movements daily v.'ith a peak ox 21 dui'ing any one 
hour. 

At the conference's opening session, Vfilliam A. Aldous of the Civil A.eronau- 
tics Adi'uinistration declared o.iri)ort construction \/il]. rapidly develop into a special- 
ized field for engineers. 



Noting that present nation-v:ide airport development is so large and has 
developed so much faster than any one could sjiticipate, Aldous said the inuaediate 
t-achnical problem is not "hov/ to get more airports, but ho\/ to properly and effi- 
ciently build tho ones under construction or in preliiiiinari,' stages". 

Other speakers included V. C. Lundquist, Korthwest Airlinec| H. J. C. Pea.r-

Approximately 735 transport plane arrivals and departures will be the order at 
Chicago's municipal airport by 194-7 or 194-8 v.dth as many as 90 plane moveiaents, II56 
passengers and 48-3- tons of cargo being handled at peak periods, it was predicted 
today by Allan E. Bonnalie of United Air Lines, speaking at the fall engineering 
conference of the Illinois Institute of Technology. 

DivScussing 'Tne Capacity of Air Carrier Terminals", the operations executive 
declared a 25 per cent annual incretise in airline business for the next fci years 
"is not at all out of order". At present, Chicago's airport handles 190 transport 
arrivals and departui'es, vjith as many as 23 an hour, during peak periods. 

Foreseeing a considerable grov;th of airports, Bonnalie cited some facilities 
which v/ould be required at Chicago to accommodate such air traffic increases. He 
mentioned the present need for a larger terminal building, then complimented Chicago's 
airport on its system of parallel runways, enabling a complete separation of landings 
and takeoff s. 

R,eferring to his figiJire of 1,156 passengers handled in a peak hour at the 
Chicago airport, Bonnalie said approximately one thousand of these would be "through" 
travelers, stopping only briefly at the airport and two-thirds would arrive or leave 
the field by ground transportation, about 80 per cent in private cars or cabs and the 



-2- 

bala.nce in about ninety arriving or departing limousines. 

".In addition," he said, "several post office and express company trucks \7ill be 
necessary so the road vehicle loading facilities y^rill have to accoimnodate a total of 
about 100 road vehicles within one hour, or something over thirty at one time." He 
predicted that about 50 aii-port loading positions would be required for the n.i.ne,ty 
planes handled in the peak hour. 

A minutely-detailed history of planning and development of Washington, D. C, 
National Airport, first project of its kind owned and operated by the government, v/as 
also given to the conferees. The man responsible for much of its success, from blue- 
print stage to completion, spoke at the morning session. Ho is H. L. Cheney, con- 
sulting architect of the Public Buildings Administr-xtion in the Capitol city. 

"There are but few cities in iiinerica where such an opportunity coiild be found 
to secure or construct an airport site so advantageously located, in close proximity 
to the large community it must serve, as the new airport in Washington," Cheney began. 

Ti-acing historjr of the authorization, choice of site, and early stages of con- 
ception of the field, Cheney said it was mandatory to establish a location v/ith a 
suitable adjoining area to be dei'-elopcd for accommodatio;i of seaplanes. The site 
chosen was also important, he added, because it was strategically located in relation 
to the Army's Boiling Field and the Na\'y' s Air Station directly across the river. 

Following approval of the site by the President, pls,ns for iminediate constructior; 
were announced. The Fablic Buildings Administrrition was to prepare the site plan, the 
design of buildings, and the landscaping. This included roads, passes and underpasses. 
Particular attention was paid to space allotment for visitors in automobiles. 

"The master pla.n of the airport provides for an extension of the flying field 
up and doTim the Potomac River, porm.itting the nortli-south instrument landing in.m'.vay to 
be extended an ultimate langth of 8,000 feet," Cheney said. 

"It also provides for development and constniction of an auxiliary system of 
parallej. runways for future installation, to be used to he^ndle increased traffic and 



_3-' 

make it possible for planes to land on one runway while others are taking off in the 
sane direction from an adjacent inimvay. /unple provi:-:.ion has also been laad-e for a 
large adjoining seaplane base imraediatelv south of the present airport o" 

A 12; 15 p.m. luncheon meeting group heard Captain L. L. Odell, consulting 
engineer and chief airport designer of Pan Amoriccn Airv-'ays, New Yorl^ City, speak on

The desire to promote and plan an airport today , build toraori-ovr , and complete 
yesterdo.y , according to William A. Aldous, is tiie cause of iiiost errors in airport eon- 
straction, maintenance and operation. This v/as stated tliis raorning, Thursday, 
October 30, 19^1 by Aldous at the first fall engineering coniei^ence sponsored by 
Illinois Institute of Technology at its opening session in the PaL'ier House, Chicago. 

The theme of the conference this year is AIRPORTS - their construction, 
maintenance and operation. Aldous was one of tv/o airport specialists rho addressed 
the opening session this morning .... lie is engineer for the technical development 
division of the Civil Aeronautics Administration, Washington, D, C, and he spoke on 
"Grading, Drainage and Paving ox Airports". On the same panel with Aldous was 
Professor H. L. Nachman of the Institute '.110 read a paper entitled "Plane Servicing 
Arrangements" prepared by V. L. Lundquist of Noi-thwest Airlines who was unable to be 
present. 

Aldous stated in his opening remarks that airport construction is rapidly 
becoming a highly specialized field for engineers. He emphasized that engineers, 
particultirly A;. erican engineerts, their associations (professional societies), their 
schools eaid colleges should become thoroughly aware of the influence aviation's 
development will have and has made upon their field of endeavor. Ho urged them to 
become dominant leaders in the present and future program of planning, designing and 
constructing airport facilities. 



- 2 - 

Pointing out that prelirainaiy planningj adequate and comprehensive study of 
all phases of airport constructionj has not been of tlie highest \rhich the magnitude 
of the job requires, Aldous remarked that "the responsibility for improper airport 
constructionj loca.tion, layout, end subsequent operation is due to urgency » , , the 
desire to plan today, build tomorr oYf. and complete yesterday .... promotes con- 
ditions not vjholly satisfactory". 

Noting that the present nation-v/ide airport development program is so large 
and that it has developed so much faster thnji anyone coLild anticipate, Aldous said 
that the irai'iiediate technical problem is not "how to got more airports, but hov; to 
properly smd efficiently build the ones that are in the construction or preliminary 
stage now." 

"The Civil Aeronautics Administration, teclinical development division", he 
added, "is in an unusuo.lly favorable position to assist in the solution of such 
technical problGm.s." 

In making plans for an airport, Aldous emphasized a 7 - point program -.Aich 
is necessary before earth\;ork plamiing of cdiy kind can be uiidertalcen in the con- 
struction of an airport. These are: 

1, ITnat functions v/ill the airport have in State, Regional, or National 
Plans, 

2, What v;ill be the type of operation - local, conimurcial, military, 

3, Typo and extent of airport sui^faco, 

4-, Designation and locations of run\7ays - present and future, 

5, Assignment of definite areas for operations, buildings - present and 
future , 

6, Obstructions to air traffic flov;. 

7, Drainage requirements,. .

An ainvays traffic cop and an outstanding aviati.on theorist were among eight 
speakei's today, Thursday, October 30, 19/4.I, at the Pa]jrier House where the first annual 
Fall Engineering Conference of Illinois Institute of Tecimology began a tvvo-day 
session. 

Edward Kajnpv/ith, chief control tovrer operator of Chicago's municipal airport 
and A. E. Blomquist, airport engineer of Eastern Airlines, New York City, addressed 
500 delegates during the Tliursday afternoon panel. The theme of the conference is 
"Airports". Kampwith presented a paper written by Jolm Becker, former chief control 
tower operator of the municipal airport who just recently v:as transferred tc 
Santa Monica, California, as a control tower inspector for the Civil ^.eronautics 
Administration, entitled "Control Tower Opei-ation''^ Blomquist spolce on "Economic 
Factors of the Lack of Instrument Landing Systems". 

"It has been found bj insurance statisticia.ns that it is far safer to ride on 
a transport airplane than to ride in the family automobile," Becker said. 

"Aviation has gro\7n from a hazardous occupation to one of the safest modes of 
travel. The government, through the Civil Aeronautics Adrainistration, is coming to 
the aid of airport control further to improve its fine record of safety snd efficient 
operation, " 

Automobiles travel at tv/enty-five miles or more per hour in congested city 
traffic, while airplanes must travel at much greater speeds witli consequently closer 
traffic control, Becker stated. 



- 2 - 

"The f"und.amental rules aiid equipment of automobile traffic control are also 
utilized in aircraft control—red and green lights have identical significance, 

"A green light means 'proceed' — a red light means 'stop,' Airplanes fly on 
the right side en an airway, and traffic officers are in cha^-ge \Jho direct traffic. 
From here on similarity stops, due to speed necessary, and to the fact that three 
dimensional movements are required, while automobile traffic is confined to t'..o 
dimensions," 

The slowest airplanes move at speeds dovm to a hundred miles per hour, 
¥;hile the fastest move up to two hundred and fifty miles per hour, naccs3ito.ting 
special means of control and special rules, Becker said, 

"The highways of the air are termed airways and are officiallj'- designated 
by the Civil Aeronautics Administration, They run bet\^/oen airports and start five 
hundred feet above the si.U"face of the earth and extend up to the highest altitude 
that aircraft can fly, 

"These airways are marked by light on the groimd cind also by I'adio beams. 
Radio markers indicate turns in an airv;ay and also distance to an airport, convoying 
information to a pilot, somew'hat like that fiurnishod by markers along highv;ays," 

Becker said that in order to separate traffic, in addition to flying on the 
right side of an airv;ay, pilots on flights in the east'jrly half of the compass use 
odd altitudes, •jhilo those in the \7cstcrly half use even altitudes. These simple 
rules \7ould probably be sufficient were there only a few airplanes, but at Chicago's 
airport aUone 90,000 planes arrived or departed last year, 

"To handle such numbers safely, two organizations have boon set up— one, 
under airport supervision, called an airport control tower, and the other under 
government control, termed Ainva3rs Traffic Control, 

"It is expected that, within a few months, all airport control, as well as 
airv/ay control will be combined into one unit. This movement has cooperation of the 
pilots and the airports," 



- 3 - 

The alfport control operator, according to Becker, must be completely 
familiar v;ith lighting, radio beam, rimway, airway and related forms of control. He 
must understand, also, automatic recording devices vjhich put on vjax plates the con- 
versations of pilots and control tower opera.tors as the former cone into airports, 

"Long experience and a nuraber of governnient certificates are necessary 
before the operator is permitted to instruct pilots in traffic," Bec'.er said, 

"The government requires tv;o licenses and a special rating before an 
operator is permitted to assume his duties. This assures handling of traffic by 
competent operators. The first requirement is a third class radio license, 

"Hov/ever, in Chicago the airport specifies a still higher radio license, 
either second or first, i/hich are the highest obtainable yrith e:!rjiiinations requiring 
3,t lease tv;o days to complete. The other goveriimont I'oquiremont is a control tov/or 
operator's certificate and is classed along v;ith the highest airmen's certificates," 

Bloraquist, discussing "Economic Factors of the Lack of Instr^'Ji'/ient Landing 
Systems," gave 'i?ll,000,000 as the minimum araoimt lost by airlines ox the United States 
since 1936 in passenger fees cancelled, 

"It seems like a sizable sum to throvir in the street but it represents, 
certainly, not more than twenty per cent of the indir;"jct costs of the hundreds of 
cancelled flights and must be small indeed comppxod v.dth millions lost by 'stacking,' 
holding at v/ay sto.tions for a few ho-ors and ovex*night, and other forms of traffic 
delays . " 

The chief cause of revenue losses tliL-"ough cancelled passengers and ground 
delays of various sorts is weather, with potential passengers saying, "I have an 
appointment I must keep, so I'm going by train," when difficulties are encountered, 
according to Blomquist, 

"Low ceilings, poor visibility and icing conditions, severe storms .and 
other mcteorlogical conditions fail to interfere \:ith eighty-five p^-r cent of all 
schedules operated by Eastern Airlines, 



- 4 - 

"The ansT/er to existing conditions is the irimediate installation of some 
reasonable instrijiment landing systen at most airline airports ?Jid the gradual re- 
duction of Civil Aeronautics Administration ceiling and visibility rainiinui'as as flight 
crews become proficient in the use of the system and the system itself is brought to 
perfection, 

"We, in this country should be ashamed of the record on development of 
this particular type of flight aid. The science of scheduled operation has been 
vastly improved, save in regard to instrument Ic^ndings, 

"As long ago as 1932 several systems v/ere proposed cuid demonstrated. Since 
that tii'.e there ha\^e been hs.lf a dozen systems, any one of which might have been 
developed to a reasonable point of operating stability," 

Successful use of a number of instrument landing systems abroad, parti- 
cularily the Lorenz System iii leading Europegji airports, is evidence the United States 
has been laggard in introducing this method of obviating cancelled flights. Air linesj, 
individually or in concert, should have made progress 3.n this matter, according to 
Blomquist, 

"The actions of the Civil Aeron^'-utics Adiiiinistration tind its prodeoessors 
appear to have been entirely ineffectual in performing a task with which the en- 
abling act charges them," he concluded.

RE: ESTABLISfflilSNT OF FIELD HOUSE FUND 
?plO,000 CONTRIBUTED BY STUDMTS 

RELEASE FOR: TUESDAY, llAAl 



Students of Illinois In;jtitute of Technology today revealed that they have 
sanctioned the creation of a FIELD KOUSE fUND and th^.t ^lOjOOO in accamulated reserves 
of student activity fees iiave been officially allocated to this fund, 

Announceiiient of the creation of the fund and the alJ.ocation of the $10,000 was 
made by Earle Huidiold, president of the student association. Hu:ihold said: 

"By a una.nimous ballot, the Illinois Tech Student Association, Board of Control, 
last Friday passed a rescJution voting tlO,000 for the establishji.ent of a FIELD KOUSE 
FUND. This money is the accumulated excess of funds over pact years tmd represents 
a contribution of the student body to the development program of a greater Illinois 
Tech," 

Illinois Institute of Technology subsequent to the mergjer of Armour Institute 
of Technology and Lewis Institute one je3.T ago le,st July, aimounced plans for th.e 
creation of a nev/ campus estimated at $3,100,000. A fund-raising program, designed to 
raise the necessary funds for the initial expenses rec;;aired to erect some of the 
contemplated 12 units of new bxiildings was announced last January. Initial effort 
during the past month, the first active period of solicitation under the program, 
To-suited in over :i^30,000 in gifts. .The new campus and physical plant wHi be locate''' 



/ 



1-2 
on the foraei" Armour Institute of Technology?- canpus whers all necessary land has been 
already purchased for the contemplated expansion program prior to January, 194-1 • The 
field huuse program is to be entirely separate from the general fund-raising program. 

According to Huxhold, the resolution passed by the Board forms the first 
official step to'.vards the attainment of a field house so sorely needed for Illinois 
Tech teams. i"ne field house resolution v.^as passed under a clause of the nov.ly 
.dopted Illinois Tech E'tudent Association constitution x?hich states? "Any balance 
left remaining at the end of the school year, after all bills r^ave been paid, shall 
be placed in s. fund to be paid at the discretion of the Board for any purpose contri- 
buting to tlie general vfclfare of the student body." 

Illinois Tech's many-fold needs for a modern, efficient field house have been 
sorely felt for many years. Tech teams nov/ use the facilities of other schools, 
armoric-t, and practice fields for there v/ork-outs and meets. For example, basketball 
teams practice in the 108th Engineer's Armory at 34tji and Wentyjorth, where all home 
games are played^ the track and sv.dmuming teams use the facilities of the University 
of Chicago under contract; boxing and vnrestling teams vrork-out in a small "bandbox 
type g;/ra"; tennis teams, lacking proper indoor facilities, also v;ork~out at the 
Engineer's Ai'moryj and golf te-ms use a practice net set up in the small g^Ta. 

The necessity for the formation of this fund has long been recognized and cited 
by Jolm J, Schomjiier, athletic director of the Institute and famous athletic figure in 
Chicago. Mr. Scb.cmmier v.-ill be very active in thiO promotion and perpetuation of the 
fund. Students, faculty, officers, and alumni of Illinois Tech are expected to 
support the movement. 

The Student /.ssociation "."ill be the receipient and guardian of all monies donated 
to the Field House fund. The .Association ?/ill designate the kind and size of struc- 
•or.-e to be built and I'lhen construction will begin. 



1-3 
Although at present no plans have been jTepared for the con.itruction of the con- 
templated field house, it v/ill undoubtedly be designed by Ludv/ig Mies van der Robe, 
famous architect v;ho is head of the schools' architecture department in coilaboi'ation 
with Holabird and Hoot, architects, who are jointly proceeding vn'.th the d''.:A!~a and 
detailing of buildings contemplated for the nev; IllinoivS Tech canipus. Ho\; much the 
field house will cost has not been determined, although it has been revealed that 
J:5r. Schomjner has for several years been investigating the best possible tyfje and 
size of structure to accoimnodate the athletic activities of Illinois Tech students. 
It must be remembered, in tliis connection, that Illinois Tecl:. sponsors each year 
the famous "ILLIilOIS TECH RELICf Gjd^IES", the largest indoor track and field meet in 
the middle west, and that consideration of seating space and i'acilities for this 
meet must be taken into consideration in planning a field house, 

When built, according to the student board, the field house v:ill provide housing 
facilities for basketball, track, swimming, tennis, badi^iinton, squash, and all other 
components of a fully-equipped and modern athletic plant. There r^ij.l also be 
founded full fox-ilities for undergraduate sport which may include boxvling and all 
facilities xoi'- coeducational sport.

Institute of Technology Y'e6nebd:ij aft.irnoon, November 12, 194-1'. The meetin^;, one of 
the Licre important of the clu.i-i cslencb.r of the academic year of 1941-42 , v.dll begin 
at 2;30 p.m. and will be follc-.vGd by tea to uhich the faculty of tiie Institute are 
invited .... the meeting uill be held in the Student Union of the Institute on the 
south side campus, the Armour College of Eng:.neering division at 3300 Federal Street. 

According to Mrs. J. B. Finnegan, 1^00 E. 56th Street, Cnarlotte Carr ',"111 
address the clubv/oraen on the subject of HULL HOUSE of T.iiich she is director. It is 
understcod Chicago's HULL HOUSE is by far the most popular, progressive, and inter- 
esting than any of the others in the United States. 

Tiie Faculty Women's Club of the Institute was organised to cre..;.te motive force 
in making the wives of facult"^' members more interested, in the Institute and in pro- 
viding a means for bringing the v;ives together more frequently. Mrs. Lester R. Ford, 
5600 Dorchester Avenue, is president. 

In addition to the regular monthly m.eetings of the Club, according to 
Mrs, C. L. Clarke, Winnetka, club publicity chairman, the Club also has a "service 
gi .--up and a literary forum" meetings of vdiich are held every third Monday and every 
last Thursday of the month respectively. 



2-2 

General meetings of the Club are held eveiy second YJednesday of the month either 
on the Armour or Lev/is campuses of the Institute. 

In selecting Charlotte Garr as principal speaker of VJednesday's meetings the 
Club desires to learn more about HULL HOUSE which is recognized as a national force 
in liberal politics and social uplift vjork. Hull House is considered one of three 
most important settlement houses in the United States, partly because of strategic 
position in mid.dle of one of Chicago's toughest river v/ards and partly because unaer 
Jane Adxlams it became Y/orld-renownod as home of revolutiuna;'y approaches to problems 
of ciiild delinquency, -./omen's suffrage, neighborhood reclamation a.nd all types of 
settlement problems <, More famous social v/orkers trained there unu.er Addams tha,n at 
almost any other two.

Carr v:as chosen, slie get v-;hat vii?.:^ equivalent to the key post in Ariierican private 
social service work. Povcrful political elements plugged for a v;eaker cliaracter 
because some reform movement is likely to originate at Hull House from year to j^etir, 
gumming up a perfectly good ward, Democratic or Republican as it may be at a given 
time, 

Charlotte Carr vffis born in Da-yton, Ohio, in 1S90, received A.B. from Vassar

FOR IMIVIEDIATE RELEilSE 



Marie Elsa Blanke, 171& N, LaSalle Street, for forty-five years avSeista.nt 
professor of appliad art at Leris division of Illinois Institu.te of Teclonology, is 
represented by two dozen paintings in a three-man shovv at The CLicago GaD.leries 
Associacion continuing until November 22. 

Fourteen oils and ten water colors, totalling last summer's output based on 
urban, landscape, marine a.nd flower subjects, compose her offering, m-hich went on 
display November ]., Manistee, Michigan, a picturesque tomn slumbering in memories of 
its vigorous lumbering days, and its neighborhood are the locale of her pieces. 

The v/ator colors are devoted to flov/ers — the datura, phlox, red dahlias, 
Jane Cowl dahlias and several types of hollyhocks being found in exactly-detailed, 
vivid reproduction. A strong leaning to tree subjects, rural rivers and somnolent, 
red-and-grocn roofed villages runs tlirough her oil subjects. 

Miss Blanke, the sole remaining member of the original Lev/is facility, coming to 
the west-side campus when it opened in 1896, has e>diibited annually for many years in 
Chicago and environs. The Union League Club, the Illinois State Art Museum, and 
collectors in Chicago and Milwaukee o;vn her wor]:. 

A graduate of Lakeview High School, and the first vvdnner of a three-year tultx.> 
schola.rship to the ^Tt Institute offered by the Chicago Women's Club, Miss Blanke 
graduated from that institution and studied in London and Munich ateliers. 



3-2 

Among Chicago masters undei" whom she practiced were CharleB Woodbui'y, Herman 
IXi.dley Murphy and Fred Richardson, the last for manj' years a popular and distingiaished 
member of the Art Institute's faculty. 

fi'hile possessing advantages of Earopean study and close observations of foreign 
methods and jud.graentj Miss Blanke has been a reporter of tjmical midwestern scenes 
from the start of her artistic career. 

Her Manistee po?:"iod is merely the latest reflection of enthusiasm for soil and 
the sun, trees and vrat^r backj-rounds, simple hamlets ai.r. the unsophisticated folk who 
live in tnom. A case-hardened teacher, she never paints likr. a school-marm but has wc- 
critical encoiuiuias for seeing life as it is. 

Illinois counties along the north bank of the Ohio River, the tor.Ti of Ijladison, 
Indiana, the Indiana Dimes an*: northern Wisconsin have supplied Miss Blanke y^^ith 
backgrounds. Her use o:'' color varies, occasitnally the softer notes of rivor-toiArxi 
nostalgis. yielding to vivid impressions such as a i.tOon-day sun can make on a church 
steeple clcse-up. 

Her current show is an honest preview of her entire scale. Harbor Springs , 
which shov/s the noted resort village with picture-postcard fidelity but hag character 
and essence, v.'ill evoke memories in many Chicagoans. Hill Tovm, an impressive 
geometrical arrangement of familiar country elements, is honest and solid. 

Birches and Pines , in r/hich f irst-gro'vvth northern Michigan trees are hei-oic 
against a lake background, is the center piece of the she?;. Priced at #250, it is an 
ambitious reminder of an earlier day of forest painting, when America's trees did not 
have the look of being pairrted by city slickers. 

A grand can-vas, a glimpse from Ggden /avenue over-'che- shoulder at St. Jolin 
Cantius church, is a brilliant, dun-colored Chicago scene. It is titled., simply, 
St. John's Church . Of the vrat-.;r colors, Datura -r/ould be T;elcome in any home, i7ith :" ,i 
delicate faithfulness, its unstarchy, inmiaculate vigor not often to be found in v/ork 
of a painting teacher.

As growth oi utilitarian standards for art became proncunced with the end of the 
•forld War, Miss Blanks sav a decline in. the nuriber of students studying to become 
artists in the accepted sense. Most boys and girls began to study in courses connected, 
i^rith d>^sign and homemaking.

Residents of Indiana,polis, foraer Armour Institute of Technology and Leviis 
Institute students uill meet Monday, November 10, 19/+1, in the Washington Hotel, 
Bamboo Room at 7s00 P.M. to hear about the consolidation of their respective scnools 
from President H, T. Heald, his assistant, Bernard P. Ta.ylor, and Vferren J. 
McCaffrey, President of the Armour A.l-Limni group, all Chicagoans. 

Sponsors of this, the first alumni group meeting of Illinois Tech alum-ni, are 
two prominent Indianapolis business men . . . graduates of former j^Lrm.our and Lewis 
Institute's respectively. Tnej are Edward E. McLaren, 4-715 Park Avenue, a partner of 
the W. E. Barton Agency, a graduate of Armour Tech in 1924.J and Elmer !?. Hildetrand, 
who resides at the Michigan Hotel, acting general commercial engineer for the Indiana

"Heavj'- capital and technological investnents cy Ajiierican fii-ii"is in the va-rio-as 
countries are more than welcoi.ie. The bGauty, ciiari;; and romance of the republics are 
well-puhlicisGu virtues but few of us knov/ the considerable resources for creating a 
better life, based on a higher standard of living, that South iarierica has vithin its 
poi/vei- to develop," 

Vagt'oorg says the attitude of the state to?jard the family and tlie education of 
children will be touched on in his lectiu"u. 

"Education as a branch of .r.'c'orrxieut is not in its infancy in South ihieric^. but 
to a gr^^at extent a lack of public instruction, based on progressive, up-to-the- 
minute methods, is accountabJ.e for the vast number of illiterates in several of the 
ccuntries," he says. 

"Technolccfical education is not v;idespread though in some larger cities a very 
excellent engineering education can be oi^tained. IIov;evcr, the introduction on a 
large scale of mass-production methods lias still to get under v;ay„ Products that are 
manufactured cheaply a,nd successfully have not the distri'ieution they should have due t( 
the lack of acceptance on the part of the public of th.e iiev;, technological life. 
Education of the public to advantages forthcoming from many products not before used 
¥'ill go hand in hand V'rith the development of the '.vhole educational syster.i." 

The Latin cast of mirid of the average peasant, v;hich inclines him. to xiand-'-crk, 
and to the devious livelihood gained in an artistic bat impractical existence, must be 
dispelled, or at least mitigated, before cnj considerable progress can be saade, 
Vagtborg thinks. 

'h'r.'ierican higher education is held in high regard by much of the thinking seg- 
ment of the South Aiaerican population," he sajrs. 

"A determined J sustained effort to bring iLmerican college professors to teach 
in the Tjrincipal schools of the larger republics is being made. Tlie idea oj? exchange 
schole.rs, while it is theoretically of advantage to these instJ.tutions, has not ••.'orked 
well in many cases.

"It has been found the average South Airiarican student, in a North American 
scholastic enviromnent, does not prosper. The soliition of the problem is to staff 
South ii:..;rican schools with a reasonable number of Nortli Ai-aericans vjillin>j to live 
for periods of several years at a time abroad."

FOR RELEASE; MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, i%:i 



Expansion of scientific camera and photographic laboratory facilities of Armour 
Research Foundation at Illinois Institute of Technology, making Chicago a national 
center of research photography, was announced today (II/17/4.I) by Harold Vagtborg, 
director. 

Clai-ence Mitchell, famous technical photographer, formerl;^ director of photo- 
graphic research at Northwestern University School of Medicine, v/as named photographit 
consultant. He will be assisted by Norme.n Bartley, formerly a Chicago Parks District 
photographer . 

Installation of a completely-equipped laboratory for making, developing and pro- 
jecting all forms of still and notion pictures, containing more than $7,000 worth of 
camera gear for aiding research on technical problems of the Foundation, is under v;ay. 

Three air-conditioned darkrooms are to be set up. Photo-microgrraphs of all 
types, including high speed, ultra-violet and infra-red photographs, high-speed 
motion and still pictures, in all knovm color variations, will be produced. Special 
research problems, never before investigated by camera, will be attempted. 

Mitchell, who lives at 179 Lake Shore Drive, is a native Chicagoan v/ho became 
interested in photographic work as an exhibiting ce^mera portrait artist and later 
was intrigued by detailed, scientific photo processes. He is a brother of 



\ 



14.-2 
John J. Mitchell, vice president of Universal Oil Products Company, a trustee of 
Illinois Institute of Technology. 

Educated at the Middlesex School, Concord, Connecticut, and Yale University, 
from which he gi-aduated in 1932, Mitchell is an associate of the Royal Photographic 
Association of Gi'eat Britain, a member of the Chicago Camera Club and othei* profession- 
al groups. 

He exhibited pictorial camera work in London and Paris galleries for several 
years and at the Chicago Century of Progress shoves in the Illinois Host Building in 
1933 . 

Mitchell did camera research vrork for California Institute of Technology, 
Pasadena, during 1936 and 1937 and was a research associate in photography at the 
Field Museum from 1937 to 1939, affiliating v.dth Northvrestern University in 1939. 

Bartley was for five years employed by the Eastman Kodak Company in its motion 
picture section before taking his Chicago Parks District post a yes.r ago. 

Armour Research Foundation v/ill shortly, according to Vagtborg, be the first 
laborator^^ and research unit in Chicago and the eleventh in the United States to own 
an electron diffraction camera. 

Drs. Frank Trimble and Carl Gamer tsf elder, associated with the Foundation since 
last Spring, began construction of the camera in August and hope to complete it by 
January. 

The camera will be used to study the surface structure of various substances by 
passing a beam of electrons through a thin sheet of a given material so an accurate 
photograph of the diffraction pattern will be recorded on an ordinary photographic 
plate . 

The apparatus is enclosed in a housing from which practically all air is 
exhausted by means of a pump designed to create high vacuum. If a given material is 
too thick for the electronic beam to pass through, the camera can record the diffrac- 
tion pattern produced by the beam reflection from the surface of the sample. 



]^-3 
Studies made possible by this camera v/ill give the same kind of inforraation on 
the Liolecules in a surface that X-ray diffraction methods give on the molecular 
arrangement throughout the human body. It v/ill also be possible to study gases by 
means of the camera.

^250,000 METALLURGICAL RESEARCH BUILDING 

FOR IPffiEDIATE PFLEASE 



The Armour Research Foundatioiij at Illinois Institute of Teclmolcgy, today 
announced the letting of a contrs-ct to R. C. riebolcit for the constructiun of a 
metallurgical research building. The building, tc be located on Federal Street at 
3^;.th Street, fully equipped, v/ili cost $250,000 and provide the riiiddle west v/ith the 
largest and most complete of facilities for the conduct of developmental and indus- 
trial research in this field, according to Harold Vagtbcrg, director of the 
Foundation who made the announcement for the Foundation. 

Located as the building wij.l be on the V^est side of Federal Street at 34-th Stree 
it virill be built around an existing foundry and metallurgical reseai'ch building which 
has become too small to carry on and service the many research projects contracted 
for by the Foundation, having to do v.'ith steel, alloys, and non-ferrous metals. The 
construction job in itself vrill be an unusual one, since the nev/ building, designed 
by Luavrig Mies van dor Rohe, head of the Institute's architectural department, vfith 
Holabiri and Root, a Chicago concern as associate architects, v:ill have to be built 
around the eld building v^ith research Y:ork being conducted simultaneously with con- 
struction v'orh. After tv'O bays of the nev; unit have been completed, the old unit 
•udll be torn dovm and the building completed. 



20-2 
According to Mr. Vagtl: )rg, the nev inetal].urgics.l resec.rch building ?/ill conform 
in architectural style v/ith that of the planned new campus buildings of IlJ.inoiG 
Institute of Techi;ology to be laiovm as "TeclmolGgy Center". The funds for this and 
otiier research buildings for tiie Foundation to be erected in the future will not, 
ho-'Nev3T, come from those currently being raised for Illinois Tech' s "Technology 
Center" ... .The Foundation is securing separate funds to construct such buildings. 

Actual construction of the buildings and subsec;\ie^'.t equipping of the metallurgi- 
cal reseai'ch section signifies the advances made d uring the past tv/o years by the 
Foundation in providing the middle-west with outstanding facilities for metallurgical 
research. In 1939 the Foundation became active in this field conducting for the 
Vfetherill Research Company an investigation cf counter-gravity die casting. Since 
that time metallui'gical investigations have increased to the point whore in addition 
to the one mentioned, there are eleven others. These are; Polomites, heat treatment 
of steelsj die-casting of ferrous and non-ferrous raeto.ls; open nesirth slags| wire 
alloys and drawi-ngj metal polishing raaterii.ls; non-ferrous forgingsj foundry moulding 
materials J hard-tipping alloys]; core oils 3 anu. free-machining metals. Among the many 
companies sponsoring the metallurgical research projects are; /anerican Steel 
Foundries, Inland Steel Company, V'ehr Steel Company, Revere Coppoi- & Brass Company, 
The National Standard Company and the Pfanstiehl Chemical Company. 

The 500,000 cubic foot building, having a ground floor of 11,000 square feet, 
will house the most modern of metallurgical research equipment. Tro cupolas, one 
having a capacity for the melting of iron of 3,000 pounds per hour and the other having 
a capacity of 1,000 pounds per hour, v;ill be installed (the 3,000 pound per hour unit 
is nov; in use in the old structure) . In addition there will be installed one Bessemer 
type converter, two electric furnaces having a 500 pound and a 10 pound per hour 
capacity, respectively, and the myriad cf equipment for chemical analysis, physical 
testing, machining and metallogTaphy. There will also be installed a steel ingot 
rolling unit. 



20-3 
According to Mr. Vagtborg, this unit of the Foundation, ivhile it will be used 
to service the many metal projects under investigation by the Foundation, will by no 
means immediately reach capacity operation. In constructing and equipping this unit, 
the d:""ectors of the Foundation have in raind long-term metallurgical research for 
the middle y/est and the metallui'gical experts of the Foundation liave designed tne 
unit and purchased equipment so that additional projects can be conducted with ease 
in the unit.

RE: MSlViORIiiL SERVICE FOR LATE GEORGE 
NOBLE CAfSIM, AC YEARS DIRECTOR 01 
LSraS INSTITUTE I L£G.SI^-D.IRY FIGURE. 



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 



Education, the leading American industi-y, villi pause in a sentiiiiental i.iood L.i 
Lewis division of Illinois Institute of Technology today (II/50/4.I) to pay tribute 
to the memory of one of its first great industrialicts. 

/;t 3s 30 p.ni., the golden-oak-panellsd auditoriun of Lei-is at 1951 ^» Madicon 
Street will hush is the first syllables of an invocatory prayer open a memorial 
service honoring the late George Kcble Carcan, for forty years director ox Lev/is 
Institute. 

From 1895} vjhen the school opened, to 1935 > when he retii-ed, George Koble 
Carman xias Lev/is. A procession of eirdnent speakers will take to the audito:rium' s 
platform, where so often he had stood, to make a hundred points that support that 



Distinguished figures in education and public life, alumni and friends of the 
school vdll overflow 1,200 seats. Each will be listening to a recitc^l of chapters 
in the eighty-five-year span of a. man who had always been too busy, too self -depreca- 
tory, to x«j'rite his ov.n achievements into the permanent record. 

allien George Noble Carman died on June 24, 194-1. in ^Ann Arbor, Michigan, he vfas, 
in an autobiographical sense, intestate. He had made Lewis the first junior college 



25-2 
in ilmerlca. Other schools picked up the tvro-year, ctsgree-granting college idea which 
he introd-jced with opening ox' his institution, and ga^-e it e nameo 

Nothing in print, \^ritten '^ay hirn.> boars out this pioneerings Nothing he vrote 
tells of his role among the founders of the North Central Association. Ke had served 
as president, secreti-'.rv and treasurer of tliat bcdv. Nothing records his intiiaate 
association with the fabulous YJilliain Rainey ilrrper and of their collaboration v/hich 
Tv'ent to shape the Mierican educational pattern. 

He left nothirig but a legend, and his contempt for an;rthing Uit deeds x'uns 
through the legend like lightning thx-ough a sunimer sky. 

George Noble CarKcn "-as born in Ual\.-orth, New York, in 1S5q. t.Ioving to a rural 
Micliigan community as child, he Ci'.me into a life based on hard work, wiiere horiieljr 
encomiums supplemented the Ten Conmiandments as rule of life. 

An important step in his teaching career ?;as the A, B, he received from the 
Univei-sity of Michigan in 1381. The degree co.me somoFhat as an anticlim.ax, hoviever, 
in a manner that v&s to prove tjnpiceil of his life. Ke had been principal of the 
Ypsilanti High vSchool, ivhere he also carried the entire burden of English instruc- 
tion, during an entire year before taking his sheepskin. 

There \-'as a good reason for staying at his Ypsilanti post during the year after 
he lv?ft college. She rras A.da J. MacVicar of Toronto, Canada, daughter of the 
president of Michigan State Teachers College of that tovai. In 1SS3 they were 
married, launching a companionship ended by her death in 1916. 

Carman, apparently initiating himself to his life-long habit of vjorking sixteen 
hours per day, took on the superintendeney of schools in Union City, Michigan, in 
18o2. By 1885 his abilities caused some talk and led to his appointment as principal 
of Grammar School No. 15, in a pullulating, polyglot v/ard of Brookl;)Ti, Nev,-- York. 

The serious country boy, carrying 195 pounds on a 6 foot, 1 inch frame, v.'as a 
success, even in BrookljTi. He eax-ned an educational plum by appointment to the 
principalship of a high school in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1839. He was advancing 



25-3 

xvith the migratory ruthleasnes^ of a cyclone. 

Then cane the groat daj' four years later- Morgan Park Accdeniy, on the outskirts 
of Chicago of Columbian Ejrpos'.ition fanfare, v<as created by Yi'illiam Rainey harper as 
part of his University of Chic-ago dream. 

Nothing would do for Harper but to get the best man possible for rocking the 
cradle of this first test-tube baby of the Mid^'ray covenf..nt. It ras his habit, it 
seemed, to pick his bright young men from the sticks on occasion. George Nob].e 
Carman brought his wife, his stiff celluloid collars and his energy to Morgan Park 
Academy. 

In 1895 George Noble Carman was a handsome man, Lewis Institute an imposing 
battleship of a building; bright with brass and soft y.'ith beautiful flooring and 
fine vTood trimming. Carman wore flo'i'ing ties, grey suits, and tlie proud mamas of 
Ashland Boulevard's brovm stone mansions brought their boys and girls into hiin vifith 
their hearts beating vigourcusly as their bustles s?."ung. 

George Noble Carman was a man,ever;y' testament agrees. 

lie began to take on habits, subtly express at first, that m^irked him as a 
supreme indix-idualist. He patrolled the h-alls of five floors, shooing giggling girls 
and mu^'tache-proud boys into the library, if they happened to be loitering. Even 
betv;esn classes, he insisted, an educational institution T"as what the catalogue said 
it v.vas. 

He took a firm, hand in the school cafeteria. At first, when it '.vas passing out 
of the eoffee-and-doughnuts stage, a ver"y good institutional soup was the piece de 
resistance, Kov-ever, before many semesters, a full menu attracted most of the stu- 
dents living outside the immediate neighborhood as regular diners. 

Carman was slightly formal vdth his faculty. Ho kept his distance in public bat 
could be tender, if occasionally sarcastic, in private. He had a classic reply to 
younger, raise-hungry instructors, for use about the third time, v.dth the look of 
drorming m.en in their eyes, they came in for more moneys 



25-K 

"A inc?.n is no good iiuleiLS he earns twice u^ laucii as he gets." 

Cc'.riiian was in the habit, however, of walking up casuaily to a teacher he hadn't 
seen for a while, coming to an abrupt stop, a.nd saying; 

"1 like your v/ork very much," 

Always thouglit ;,. strict
