VARIETY OF SUBJECTS
Tho uso of motion pictures for tho

started in tho College of Median leal
and Electrical Engineering this week.
The first lecture was scheduled for
Wednesday at 9:00 a. m., when a representative of tho National Steel Pipe
Company of Pittsburg, lectured on tho
subject "From Ore to Finished Pipe."
This lecture, given to the
in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, was Illustrated by lantern
slides showing microphotographs of
steel and iron used in pipe making,
and three standard moving picture
reels showing the processes necessary
for making pipe, beginning at the mining of the raw iron ore and following
on through to the finished steel products.
The College of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering has secured a portable moving picture projector for use
in class rooms, so that films applicable to the engineering subject may be
shown in conjunction with the lecture
At regular intervals,
popular educational or scientific films
will be shown to an assembly of all
the students in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
Large engineering companies like
the General Electric Company, Schenectady, the Westinghouse Machine
Company, Pittsburg, the Western Electric Company, Chicago, and many others, issue moving pictures showing
the industrial processes in the factories, mills, foundries, mines, and laboratories. These films are distributed
for use in technical colleges and engineering societies. The study of these
is of great assistance to engineering
students in learning the actual practice of engineering processes that
would otherwise cause a great deal
of .travel and expense prohibitive to
The schedule of motion pictures to
be used during the remainder of the
school year Is not yet completed, but
some of the subjects to be shown are
