to get a team in sliape that will make a 
creditable showing in. the intercollegiate 
track meet May 21 and 22. His latest 
move is to hold a handicap meet on Sat-

ual trophies were offered. This may’ he 
because some of the new men Avere 
scared out by the fear that, too many 
?;tar men would appear for them to have 
any, chance. 

Everyone will have an equal chance 
in the handicap meet, as the handicaps 
will be arranged so that no race Avill be 
won till the finish, and most of the fin- 
ishes Avill lie exceedingly close. xAll 
entries should be in by Thursday night 
for the huiuiicajis to be properly ar- 


ranged. 

33iere are txvo ]>rincipal objects in 
holding this meet. In the first place, 
the men Avho are to eoiiipete in the 
intercollegiate^ Avill be ])ickcd at this 
time. In the second plac'V. the sipiad 
needs eveiy incentive to do faster work 
on tlu‘ track, and the fi’eld OA'cnt.s are in 
miserable sbajie. 'Fecli's chances of aa’Iii- 
ning the intercollegiates. Avhich were 
fairly good at the beginning of the year, 
will liave to be posfjioned till next sea- 
son. 3'he meet Saturday should give a 
■piod indication of Avhat kind of a track 
team 3'eeli Avill have next year, as the 
men • who Avere de])eii(l(>d niibn to bring 
honors this spring to the Institute ImA’e 
been 11 great disapjiointinent. 3dio men 
that really do take to lu'art the desire 
of d<ring something for 'I'eeli Avill eon- 
linue to do their best, and with the 
resistance of those Avlio.nre to eonu 
along iie.xt year, it is ceriaiu tlmt Tech 
will have t<i he r(>ek<incd with before the

hiyal and entinisiasfcic, but for the sec- 
ond class tlierc is little e.xcnse. A 
man avIio can ym throngii Tech Avithout 
.giving the sliyliti'st intimation that he 
cares one hit more for tlic greatest 
scieiititic si'iiuol in the world than siin- 
piy the ]nivilege to add her degree to 
Ids name, shows little promise of being 
very eiitlnisiastie over any subsequent 
relations, and a man AVitlioiit entlui- 
siasin will not get very far in these 
da>s. The man aaTio has the ability and

who, by virtue of combined knowledgt*

able, not only of investigating a prob- 
l(.'in or develo])ing a ])roco.ss in the 
ehemieal laboratoiy. l)\it of studying it 
from an ongiiieering staiid{)oint, or de- 
veloping it into a j)rolit-pro(Iucing plant. 
The .Institute Course in Chrmieal En- 
gineering was remodelled a few years 
ago. after earefnl consnlfation with 
tliosi' coiinoeted with the technical in- 
terests. many of whojn are employers 
of onr graduates, in order to prepare j 
men to enter eil'ectively into this field, j 
It is safe to say tliat no engineering [

or, ai, present a less crowded condition, i 
Taking the j'ear through, the demand [ 
for elieinically trained Institute men, | 
is now distinctly gn-ater than the s<ip- 
]dy. ami. althongli it seems likely that 
iliis demand will inei-ease most ra|)idly 
along the lines of ehejuical engineering, 
there are also likndy to he adetpiate 
opportunities for a sm-ees^fn! career 
for those whose aptitude Imids them to 
confine themselves to chemical and al- 
lic(f sciences to the t('mj)orary excliis- 
sion of engineering. For the man who 
takes ])r(jper advantage of the oppor- 
tunities for hreadth of experience and 
training which the course in elnmiislry 
or Cliemieal Engineering all'ords each in 
its i(‘s])ective fi(‘l(l, and comhines with

or pleasurable career; he is needed in 
the rest'areh laboratories, and nowhere

almost numberless problems are await-

ginc(‘r it will jirobabiy be through the 
laboratory, ami a c(’rtaiu amount 
patient and painstaking work must 
conic tbc st('pping-stone to larger
