PROF. SWAIN TO LECTURE
REFORE CIVIL ENG. SOCIETY
Prominent Consulting Engineer
And Alumnus Will Talk On
This afternoon at 4.15 the Civil En-
gineering Society will hold a meeting
in Room 6, Lowell Building. Professor
George F. Swain of the Graduate
School of Civil Engineering at Harvard
University will give an address on Pro-
Professor Swain graduated from M.
1. T. in the class of J.887 and after this
left for Germany, where he studied for
three years in some of the large univer-
sities. Returning to the Institute he
became instructor in Structures and
Hydraulics. In 1888 he was put in
charge of the departments of Civil and
Sanitary Engineering, in which office
he remained until June, 1909, when he
was called to fill a similar place at
Harvard. He is a member of the Am.
Soc. C. E., the Boston Soc. C. E., the
Society for tbe Promotion of Engineer-
ing Education, and other societies, hav-
ing held offices of high honor in all.
Besides this he is the author of a large
number of scientific books and reports.
However, the greatest reputation of
Prof. Swain lies in his work as con-
sulting engineer, since heis one of the
most successful and best known in the
country. Due to his wide experience in
this work, he is eminently well fitted to
speak on the subject which he has
chosen, “Professional Ethics." As yet
the Civil Engineer has no formulated
code of ethics such, for example, as the
Architects have recently adopted. The
engineer lias to follow the “unwritten
law,” which is quite plain as regards
some matters, such as advertising 'one’s
business other than by business cards,
but becomes more complicated in other
matters. This is a subject, therefore,
which it is very essential for a young
engineer just graduating from college
to know, but one which is not included
in the curriculum. It need scarcely be
urged, therefore, that every one at-
tend, and hear of this important sub-
ject from one of the Institute’s most
Meeting To Decide Awards For
The Advisory Council, at a meeting
last evening, voted that the winners of
first-class places in the Dual Track
Meet between the Freshman and Sopho-
more classes should be awarded tbe
numerals of their class. It was also
decided that the insignia should not bn
awarded to tbe members of this year’s
’varsity basket-ball team.
Approximately 1450 men are engaged
in some form of athletic activity at
Yale, either in the major or minor
sports, according to figures compiled at
the university for the year 1909-1910.
The statistics include the academic and
scientific departments and the graduate
schools. Detailed figures show a pre-
ponderance of academic men in the vari-
Yale should have an exceptionally
strong golf team this spring with R. G.
Gardner, the national champion, as one
of its makeup.
TO BE REPRESENTE3
Wireless Clubs In All Eastern
Gnlleges To Form New
James H. Ellis 1912 and Herbert L.
Woehling 1912, were elected yesterday
at the meeting to the Wireless Society
as representatives to the meeting of the
Intercollegiate Wireless Association to
be held at Philadelphia, Pa., on April
!)th. At this time representatives from
all the wireless clubs in the Eastern col-
leges will meet for the organization of
the Intercollegiate Wireless Association.
The object of this new move is for the
betterment of college interest in wire-
less telegraphy; the “Wireless Club” of
the University of Pennsylvania takes
the initiative. The meeting is held un-
der the auspices of the “Wireless Club”
in Houston Hall, 34th and Spruce
Streets, at 2 o’clock on Saturday, April
The meeting of the Wireless Society
was held in 11 Eng. B yesterday after-
noon, Pres. E. B. Moore 1912 presiding.
L. W. Cooper 1912, chairman of the
aerial committee, reported that the
spreaders have been completed and the
design and computation of the aerial
have been finished, E, H. Guilford 1912
of the pole committee reported that the
base and all eye-bolts were in place.
The 35-foot pole which is to be erected
oil the top of the Pierce building had
been taken to the roof where it will be
given a number of coats of paint and
placed in position. E. M. Syinms 1911
was elected chairman of a committee to
consult with the United Wireless Tele-
graph Company and the Government on
interference and general eo-operatioil.
GHEM. SOCIETY TO MEET
All Men To Appear At Dinner
In Their Laboratory Coats
It lias just been learned that the
Chemical Society is secretly planning a
great time and will burst forth during
April “in all its glory.” A dinner is to
he given at which all sorts of stunts
are to be performed and a general good
time made possible. All persons at-
tending are requested to wear their
laboratory coats. Watch the bulletin
boards and the Tech for further an-
It was shown at the last meeting
that much time was consumed in dis-
cussing business at the beginning of
the evening, therefore it has been de-
cided to hold a business meeting some
afternoon at four or five o’clock to take
up any points which have come up since
the last meeting, and also to try to set-
tle the matter in regard to the Amend-
ment proposed by the Institute Com-
mittee. The executive committee of
the Chemical Society has considered
this amendment and will report upon
it at that time. A notice will be posted
as soon as i time is found which will
accommodate the largest number. As
this is a matter of great importance the
executive committee asks all men to
watch for the announcement of this

LECTURE ON GYROSCOPE
AT HUNTINGTON HALL
Mr. Elmer A. Sperry Will Ad-
dress Society Of Arts On
Since top-spinning has become a sub-
ject of scientific research instead of a
childish amusement, technical lectures
upon this subject have been frequent,
but practically nothing has been done
to popularize the subject, that is, to
make it intelligible to the layman. For
this reason tire next meeting of the So-
ciety of Arts will be of special inter-
est, for the speaker at this meeting will
be Mr. Elmer A. Sperry of New York
City. He will speak upon the subject
of “The Gyroscope and its Practical
Application in Steadying Ships, Mono-
rail Locomotion, Aerial Flight, and as
a Mariner’s Compass.” The meeting
will take place next Wednesday evening
at 8 o’clock, in Huntington Hall.
Mr. Sperry will illustrate his lecture
with operating apparatus and lantern
slides. The uses of the gyrostat in mon-
orail cars, steamships, and in directing
torpedoes will be illustrated by working
models, and the principle of the gyro-
scope will be fully explained. The fun-
damental element of precession will be
developed and illustrated experiment-
ally. As an engineer, Mr. Sperry has
made special research along the lines of
gyroscopic reactions. He spent four
months abroad last year investigating
MUSICAL CLUB CONCERT
Successful Performances Given
Another successful concert was ren-
dered by the Tech Musical Clubs at
Lynn last night. Over a thousand per-
sons attended and received the efforts of
the performers enthusiastically.
The old stand-bys of the Clubs met at
a fashionable down-town hotel and were
taken to Lynn in a “special.” The
usual Tech spirit was ever present and
the ride seemed shortened by music.
After the second number of the pro-
gramme, Miss Dorothy G. Harris ac-
companied Sir. L, Harris on the organ,
the latter playing the violin. To a
hearty encore to “Reverie,” Vieuxtemps,
another selection was given. Both pieces
were charmingly carried through and
credit is due the musicians taking part.
At the close of the concert the usual
M. 1. T. yell was given and a car took
the men back to Boston to pursue their
Following is the programme:

tions, Cline; eneore, “Yankee Dandy.”
3. The Banjo Club — “Rose Tree March,”
Eno; encore, “Onion Rag.” 4. Mando-
lin Club Sextet — Selection. 5. The Glee
Club — “The Stein Song,” Bullard, ’87;
eneore, “Bill of Fare.” C. Mr. A. G.

Cooke, the Princeton sprinter, who
won the 60-yard dash at the New York
A. C. games Tuesday night, is a corker,

CONDITIONS IN UNION
There Are Never More Than
Three Or Four Men Who
Wear Hats There
Conditions n the Union tiave im-
proved! This is the opinion of the
House Committee, who, after months
of energetic 'York have noted a change
for the better concerning tbe matter
of men removing their hats when in the
Union. Actual count each noon has
shown that there are at noon hour al-
ways three, sometimes five, wearing
hats in the Union. With regard to the
smashing of chairs and other furniture,
this continues to be a favorite pastime
for some on rainy afternoons. One man
has paid up for three chairs which he
has broken recently, and the committee
hopes that this is an example that will
be followed by others who have of-
fm-ded in a simi’ar manner.
The committee has recently added the
American Magazine to the number al-
ready provided. As to the matter of
the exchanges which used to be in the
Union, a notice has been posted for
some t ; me requesting those who wished
certain ones continued, to leave a note
in the House Committee box to that
effect. As only seven notes were re-
ceived, and of these, four were from men
the “Tech” staff, it was thought inad-
visable to continue them at all.
A suggestion box lias been provided
in the Union and everyone who has any
suggestions which would be of use to
the committee, are requested to leave
The following men comprise the com-
mittee: Sunday, K. Goto 1911; Mon-
day, G. C. George 1911; Tuesday, O. D.
Powell 1911; Wednesday, L. 0. Hart
1913; Thursday, IT. F. Dolliver 1911;
Friday, G. M. Donbinger 1913; Satur-
day, Malcolm Lewis 1913; Chairman,

An organization at the University of
Virginia, known as the Seven Club, is
said to be employing Black Hand meth-
ods to further its cause. Notices
printed in red ink on black paper have
been posted on the wall of the “topic”
office, threatening the editor with das-
tardly punishment if he publishes arti-
cles detrimental to their interests.

Fortunately the one-third of the In-
stitute body which was present last
Friday night unreservedly allowed its
disapproval of this doubtful style. It
is up to the few dealers in this low

The benefits to be derived from a town

increased by the wiser selections of
older men and tlie better opportunities
offered since these will be conducted as
an official part of the Institute.
The Electrical Engineering society
has conducted many excellent trips.
However, it is not to be denied that
tlie presence of an experienced man, an
instructor familiar with tlie industry,
will lend greatly to the understanding.
In the trips of the professional society,
the superficial knowledge of the more
fluent leaders is too evident.
On the surface many institutions
present really the same features. It is
the opportunity of the instructor in
these trips to show how this or that
problem was met, what this machine
does or iiow the product is handled.
There have been many excursions in
the past on which the men looked and
wondered. They were kindly received,
yet their guide was conversant enough
with their standpoint to siiow them the
things they wanted. He knew well
what they thought the most interesting
and passed them the compliments of
supposing they could follow him along
lines in which they had had no training.
This example of progress could well
be copied ill the other professional so-
