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
Four separate societies, each one

other hand, there are decided social
advantages which cannot be gained
without an occasional mingling of all
the classes, and It was in recognition
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
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 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."
