THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Mechanical Department News MOT) I PICTURES FOR M EC ANICAL ENGINE i 1 New Method of Instruction Is Introduced In Engineering College VARIETY OF SUBJECTS Tho uso of motion pictures for tho study of industrial processes was 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 or recitation. 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 most students. 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 as follows: The Making of National Steel Pipe. Three reels. Tho Natural Resources of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Two reels. The Construction and Operation of the Panama Canal. Two reels. of the Butte, AnaElectrification conda and Pacific Railroad. One reel. Panama Canal Lock Control Board. One reel. Panama Canal lock control switchboard showing construction and operation.
