Says That Demand For Technically Trained Men Is
The following is the text of an address delivered over radio station
on Friday, April G, by F. Paul Anderson, dean of the Engineering College
at the University. Dean Anderson,
who is accompanying the senior engineers on their' annual inspection
trip, was asked to speak whilq the
entourage was in Detroit.
"America is busy supplying the
world with manufactured products.
"The first attempt to .apply the
principle of production on this planet
was in 1807 when Eli Terry of Connecticut made a. contract to produce
3,000 clocks all alike in one year; today it is the ambition of a Detroit

"This speeding up of the world's
work has created an unsupplied demand for technically trained men.
"All over this country universities
are giving to those alert youths who
have the grit and ambition" to carry
on in one of the thorough courses of
engineering the academic foundation
of successful careers in industry.
"The colleges of engineering are
swamped with orders for youngsters
who finish the undergraduate courses
and are ready to take up the process
of learning some one's business.
"The college of engineering that
sets out to make a finished engineer
is spoiling good material.
"Colleges can only give the fundamental training, the industries are
able and enthusiastic about qualifying
the college man to be a specialist
eminently fitted to first preserve the
traditions of any industry then to
prove valuable in developing any industry.

The attention of the executive committee of the Interfraternity Conference has been called to the fact that
at many . colleges and universities
fraternity initiations are
again becoming matters of common
occurrence. The executive committee
believes that under the circumstances
it would be wise to call attention
again to the attitude of the Interfraternity Conference, as set out in a
resolution of the Conference adopted
n 1920, which reads as follows:
"Whereas, it appears from reports
here that hazing in fraternities still
exists, arising from practices in initiations, either in real or fake initiations, either before, or during the
ceremonies of initiation, and
"Whereas, the Interfraternity Conference has at divers times and by
resolution in 1920 Conference, con
demned these practices,
"Therefore, be it
"Resolved, That it is the sense of
this Conference that .this Conference
condemn these practices of
initiations, whether fake initiations or a part of the real initiations,
whether preceding or made a" part
of the ceremonies, incident to initiation at any time or in any form.
"We consider these practices as
silly and dangerous, as opposed to
the dignity and ideals of college fraternities, and injurious to their good
name, and we recommend that all
fraternities take steps to eliminate
any such practice from their own or
ganizations, if same be indulged in,
