"You can't hope for success in any kind of engineering," Mr. Hammond says, unless you have a genuine interest in the working of natural laws. If studying those laws bores you, keep out of engineering. "Then you must be curious. Some of the happiest hours I've spent have been those when I've gone out of my way to trajhp over rough country examining geological formations. "You must have imagination be able to see a thing before it exists; you must be as much a dreamer as any poet or philosopher, with the practical ability to make your dreams come true. You must be an accurate thinker, and an honest one; you can't juggle with the forces of nature; if a man misleads himself or others, he won't succeed in engineering. "Speaking of the value of honesty in engineering, I once offered a man an important position just on the strength of his honesty, his sterling character. When I was in charge of the mining operations of the Consoli- - ,. isVeryminqs 77 going to be all rig121 f I wrote and told him that I had this position to offer; that I had thought of him because I knew just the square sort of a boy he had been; that I'd give him the position if he had the technical qualifications, and that I'd leave it to his judgment as to whether or not he had them. "He decided that he had them and came on to South Africa and became one of my trustworthy assistants Some years afterward when I had charge of the Guggenheim Explora tion Company's mines, I sent for him and offered him another important position. After my resignation from that company, he became the consult ing engineer. Not only has he made good as an engineer, but he has been most successful in a financial way, And his first big chance came because of that boyhood honesty of his hon esty in the broad sense. "But let's get on with the other qualities of an engineer.

The track team of Vanderbilt Uni versity defeated the Wildcats of the University by the score of 84 2 to 32 2 in the first track meet of the 1027 season on Stoll field Saturday afternoon. Vanderbilt, with a well rounded team, won 10 first places, tied one, and took off three second places. Kentucky won but three first places, tied one, and carried away honors in four second places. Bill Gess was Kentucky's star, winning easily in the event and in the half mile run, the respective being 52 seconds and 2:03, very times remarkable performances when the poor condition of the track is considered. Ted Creech experienced little trouble in the javelin throw with a heave of 157 feet. West, of Kentucky, tied for first place in the pole vault with Nance, of Vanderbilt. West was second to Applegate of Vanderbilt on the broad jump. Chesney, of Vanderbilt, was high point man of the day, taking first in both of the sprint events and running on the victorious relay team. Wilson, his teammate, was also a double winner, with first in the mile and two miles runs. Officials of the meet were: Hinton, of Yale; Peak, Heber,vand Brower, all of Kentucky, and Mountjoy, of Centre.

And you must have resourcefulness; you must be able to get results even if conditions are not favorable." As a check on your listening, you sum up those essential qualities: "To make a successful engineer, then, I must be curious, I must have imagination, I must be an accurate thinker, I must be unfailingly honest, I must like to create, I must be ingenious, Mr. Hammond nods. "All that. Bet ter add initiative, too. The engineer must be ready to start things, ready to go ahead. "Of course, comparatively few men are strong in every one of these qualities, but most successful engineers are strong in the majority of them and not altogether lacking in the others. You're not sure how many of the essential qualities you have. But just for the time being, youU cheerfully assume that you're the right sort to make a whiz of an engineer, and find out about the education needed. "You were graduated from Yale, weren t you, and then you studied mining abroad?" you say to Mr, Hammond.
