The Senior society or the "Mechanicals of M6" met in the Heat Engineering Room on Tuesday, September 17. The following officers were elected: President, T. Taylor; Vice President, G. L.

A committee was appointed to make arrangements for the annual "Mechanical The Junior society or the "Watt Society," will meet this week to start the year's work. The Sophomore organization, known as the "Edison-JoulSociety," will hold its second meeting in the next few days. The Freshman met on Saturday, September 18, and appointed committees to draft a constitution and complete other details of organization for the new Freshman society. They will meet again on Saturday, September 25, and put their society on a permanent basis. Professor F. Paul Anderson has just received a letter from Howard Payne Ingles, member of the 1905 graduating class, who is now employed as assistant secretary with the Realty Guar antee & Trust Company, of Youngs- town, O., stating that he had Just succeeded in landing a $5,000,000 order from the J. P. Morgan Company, of New York. The letter did not state what the nature of the order was, but It Is supposed to be for war mate-- ' rials. Mr. Ingles also stated that he had just returned from a motor trip with Mr. Todd, president of the William Todd Co., of Youngstown, and Mr. Campbell, president of the Youngstown Sheet & Tube Company. Mr. Ingles graduated from the of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in 1905, and has since been employed In Youngstown, where he at present holds a lucrative position with the Realty Guarantee & Trust Company. e Col-leg- e A.

UNIQUE ORGANIZATION The society organization in the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering is decidedly unique and quite different from that of any other college in the University. Each Incoming Freshman class organizes and names a society of Its own and frames a constitution and s for Its regulation. This society remains a ner-manent unit through the whole four of college work. The advantage of this plan over the ordinary departmental society Is that the Freshman does not have to listen to a technical discussion that is Greek to all but the Seniors, and the Seniors is not compelled to lose his valuable moments in elementary discussion that w'ould be of benefit and interest to a Freshman only. Four separate societies, each one devoted to the peculiar needs of its members, have proven an unqualified success in the development and growth of the department. On the other hand, there are decided social advantages which cannot be gained without an occasional mingling of all the classes, and It was in recognition Don't Fail Kresge S to Visit Soda Fountain and , The American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers hold equally high and unapproached positions In their respective realms of activity. The engineering world offers but few higher honors than a membership in either of these societies. Their objects and aims, and activities are much the same. The members of each organization, and they are the fore- most men of the profession, meet at stated intervals to fix all engineering standards in their respective fields. and to pass judgment, at the same time, upon any new phase of professional advance and make permanent records of all their proceedings and transactions. Evidently a membership in such an organization is far beyond the scope of the college student, but he has been provided for in the "student branches" of both these societies. Every Senior seeking the degree 'B. M. E.," must join both of these "branches" which our University has been fortunate enough to secure. Membership extends three years after graduation, and the student receives during this time all the written reports of the transactions of the A. I. E. E. and the A. S. M. E. In the University of Cincinnati, has and who has since been an instructor been appointed on the Jury of awards In the Machinery Building at the -Pacific Exposition. COLUMBIA FELLOWSHIP J. G. Panama- High Compliment Paid To LOVE'S YOUNG DREAM Kentucky University by EXCUSE FOR FAILURE Eastern Institution. TO SOUND AUTO HORN Columbia University has established a graduate course In engineering, and the State University of Kentucky has been pnid a high compliment by the Dean of the School of Mines, Engineering and Chemistry, In offering to a graduate of the Stato University a yearly fellowship to be known as the State University of Kentucky Fellowship. The fellowship for the year 1915-1has been awarded to J. G. Aud, of Owensboro, a graduate of the College of Mechanical and Electrical Engineer ing. Quoting from the letter of Dean Frederick A. Goetze to President Barker: "In view of the very satisfactory showing which has been made by the students who have come to us in the past from the University of Kentucky, we have decided to designate one of these fellowships to your institution and we shall be glad to have you recommend one of your students or graduates who has given indication of marked ability and personality and who, in your opinion, will worthily represent your Institution." It is evident that the men who have gone from the State University of Ken tucky have made a very enviable rec ord In their graduate work at Columbia and the awarding of this fellowship to a University of Kentucky graduate is additional evidence of the splendid organization of our State University. 6 A.
