R. Penn, who was graduated from the university in June, has continued his research with I. G. of the College of Engineering, and just recently Watkins and Penn have developed a miniature broadcast ing station which has an output of approximately "one gnat power and covers a distance of one thousand feet. This apparatus is located in the northern wing of Mechanical hall, just beyond the electrical labora tory in the present location of the short wave transmitting set 9JL. The set operates on a wavelength of 317 meters and due. to its very low power its signals cannot be heard beyond the limits of the university campus and this means there is absoto regu lutely no interferenc-lar broadcast work of other stations or to the people who are listening in. It was designed to be used between buildings and more especially between sections of the same building. Music and speech are very clear over this small set. With this principle many combinations can be had and its field is also unlimited. It is just another step forward in the engineer ing world. The development of the minature broadcasting set followed the comple tion of Mr. Penn's thesis work.

The annual report consists of approximately one hundred and fifty typewritten pages and bound copies are kept in the president's and state superintendent's offices. In addition a biennial report is submitted to the legislature when it convenes this winter. Doctor McVey's report for this year relates that excellent progress has been made in the numerous phases of university work but emphasizes the needs of the university.

Most of the thesis work is chosen or assigned in groups of two students and these men are placed under some one of the instructors to whom they can look to for questions, but of whom occasional they receive no help that pertains directly to the problem of .study. Of course, this leavs the students on their own initiative. Edmond T. Bullock, of the George-- , town pike, and Penn, of 161 Loudon avenue selected as the subject for their thesis "A Study of Aerials and Counterpoises to Be Used at Sending Stations."

R. Melcher, dean of men. At the end of each semester the dean of men and of women figure up the standings of the various social, professional and honorary fraternities and sororities, classes, and other groups. Considerable interest is displayed in the announcements of the relative standings. For the past few years the women students have led the men by a considerable margin. For the first semester of last year Alpha Gamma Rho led the fraternities and Kappa Kappa Gamma led the sororities. The university average for the first semester w,as 1.364. There were thirty-si- x organizations with standings over the university average-an- d sixteen organizations below. sity, further limited their study of aerials and counterpoises to the form of Bent Hertz aerial system. This particular kind of antenna system employs two horzontal wires spaced any distance apart, but they always remain in the same vertical plane. The lower wire is the counterpoise while the upper one is the aerial wire, but unless both are used simultaneously the Bent Hertz system does not hold true. Two steel poles were erected at a distance of one hundred feet apart to support these two wires. The height above the ground was thirty-tw- o feet measured to the top of the pole. The counterpoise was made fast at eight feet from the ground and its length was varied, also that of the aerial, and the distance between the two wires, so that all the data could be taken that was possible with this combination. From these data curves were drawn showing the wave length of these two wires for any position wtih respect to each other and with respect to the length up to and including 100 feet.

The luncheon was characterized by a spirit of geniality, which expressed iaself in the group singing as well as in the various speeches. One of the features of the singing was the rivalry between the men and women students. Overton Kemp in addition to leading the group singing, appeared on the program twice, singing "On the Road to Mandaly" and "In the Garden of My Heart."

Approximately fifty men representing six states and fourteen colleges, are enrolled for the summer course for athletic coaching in football and basketball which began at the university, Monday, August 1 and will continue for a period of two weeks. Each' course offered is made up of two hours of theory and two hours of practical work daily. Practice is held on Stoll field and in the men's gymnasium and the lectures are gives in a tent on the athletic field. Head Coach Harry Gamage, of the university, is teaching the class in football coaching and Coach J. Craig Ruby, of the University of Illinois, teaches the principles of coaching basketball. This is the first time the summer coaching course has been given at the university but administrative officers say it is necessary as the university has so many requests for teachers who also can coach athletic teams.
