Leaving the Falls they made their way to Buffalo by means of bus transportation. Here they went through the Larkin cosmetic manufacturing plant. The cleanliness of the plant and the variety of their products were both notable features. The National Lamp Works of the General Electrfc Company was exceedingly interesting. Girls made up nearly the entire list of employees in this company, like the personnel of the Larkin Company. It was very surprising to observe the efficiency these girls could maintain in operating the machines. As noted throughout the trip, girls seem to be as common in the mills and factories as men. The huge foundry of the American Radiator Company was another unit which stands out as one of the most interesting places on the itinerary. The traveling cranes, the blast furnaces, controlled the electrically metal flowtrucks, and the white-ho- t ing from ladel to mold made this an impressive scene. fef h l!l The next time you need a trimming, don't go to the races Let Us Trim You We Guarantee to Please Ladies' Hair Bobbing a Specialty Viaduct Barber Shop H.

It is needless to say that a panoramic view of the great commercial and engineering world of today has its effect upon the minds of those who will become the technicians of gigantic industrial enterprises of tomorrow. It gives to them a comprehensive idea of the .magnitude of the great machines that keep industry of the going, a better conception practical side of their technical training, and indicates to them the relative merits of their personal characters in application to the huge problems which confront them upon graduation. On Wednesday, April 4, 1928, fifty-si- x senior engineers left Lexington for Detroit. This marked the beginning of the twenty-nint- h annual senior inspection trip of the College of Engineering of the University. The tour was conducted by Dean F. Paul Anderson, Professors W. E. Freeman, D. V. Terrell, J. R. Johnson, and J. for the party at this point. Cincinnati was not included as one of the inspection centers so all of the party visited the theater district.
