Engineers Night as an annual event.
The engineers reception was a suc
cess beyond the oxpectaatlon of any
of Its promoters. It Is estimated that
over 2,500 persons visited the engi
neering laboratories during the even
ing. There wero many out of town
visitors among whom wore many
alumni and were enthusiastic in their
approval of the exhibit.
Tho laboratories wero running full
forco ank very little difficulty was
experienced In handling tho vrowd.
The shop men wero kept busy, how
over, answering innumerable ques
tions. There was some trouble at tho
power house In furnishing enough
power, the crowds being Boveral
times loft momentarily In tho dark
when the lights went out. An un
fortunate Incident of tho evening was
the burning of the transformer at
Tenth and It streets when an attempt
was made to use tho city current.
It finally became necessary to con
serve all the power possible and as
a result other parts of tho campus
and the state farm were cut off for
a short time. -It Is said that the Gloo
club was forced to dance by candle
light in the Temple.
The Mechanical Engineering build
ing was the place of most interest
to tho visitors. Never before has It
held such a crowd. The power labor
atory with Its big engines, the ma
chine tool room where tho big tele
scope is being made, the forge room
andtho wood-working laboratories
where the freshmen displayed their
skill on the lathe were all places of
much interest The foundry room

The electiical laboratory was In no
way slighted by the visitors. Stu- '
dents and professors were kept busy
endeavoring to explain the mysteries
of elect rhit. to the inquisitive lay
men who ciow tied tholr building. An
interesting exhibition of arc lamps
and a ariet of colored lighting ef
fects held the attention of the visi
tors. Many stood aghast at the death
llko complexion of their companions
when thej entered tho room.
The materials testing laboratories'
were the subject of much comment.
Many exclamations of wonder wero
heard when the steel bars were
pulled or twisted apart in tho testing
machines. The lovers' knot tied cold
in one and a half Inch structural
steel, the largest one ever tied, at
tracted the attention of all. Tho
machines for testing road materials
