What Shall I Be?
i. Structural Engineer.
In no two countries in the world
is there such a demand for the
structurat ngineer, as in the United
States and Canada. The rapid de
velopment of commerce, together
with the advance in metallurgy, has
led to the building of huge office
buildings, mainly of steel construc
tion. This is a special branch of
engineering, and the young fellow
who has specialized along that line
is always sure of a position.
Moreover, steel building con
struction is so closely -allied to
bridge construction that a struc
tural building engineer can easily
become a bridge engineer. For uch
there is a demand all over the world.
Few careers hold out a promise of
such exciting and adventurous lives.
At the present time the supply is far
below the demand. Roads and rail
roads, are being pushed rapidly in
the South American countries. The
awakening Balkan states are eager
for expert engineers. China can use
every bridge engineer who reaches
that country and can handle gangs
of men. And, so far as this conti
nent is concerned, thousands of
miles of road and roadbed are be
ing laid in the United States and
Canada, over gorges which must be
spanned and by difficult passes
through rugged mountains.
A thorough course at one of the
"tech" colleges is an essential. But
college course only gives the
fundamentals. For such work, a
man needs initiative, quickness of
mind in an emergency, the ability
to handle men, a liking for big out
door jobs, and a Certain quickness
ii languages. It is, above all. the
love of daring and the desire to do
big things in a big way which has
caused English-spteaking engineers
to- be at the head of more than 70
per cent of all the big structural
construction work of the world.

JVhat Shall I Be?
Windows, well dressed and well
arranged, sell goods. Selling goods
is a merchant's aim. Therefore,
there is always a position open for
the girl who is a good window
dresser. The principal requirements
are originality and good taste, to
gether with a.lcnowledge of modern
lighting arrangements and the thou-sand-and-one
devices available for
modern store fixtures.
One girl; in a small town, studied
the subject carefully, spent a few
weeks as Assistant tp a professional
window-dresser, then went back to
her home town ' and undertook to
dress the windows of the various
stores at the modest fee of $10 a
window. Before long she found that
she hid every evening engaged, and
she was making $3,000 a year, and

Do We Have 24 Hours?
(Copyright, 1920. by tbe Wheeltr
The division of the day into a
certain number of hours, minutes
and seconds is a purely arbitrary
measure intended'to simplify the
process of keeping track of time
and scheduling the various events
of the world's life which must
occur at the same time each day.
Since the dawn of history, the
revolutions of the heavenly bod
ies have formed the basis for the
measurement of time. These
revolutions are three in number:
The revolution of the earth upon
its axis, which forms the founda
tion for our 24-hour day; the
changes in thc-appearance of the
moon, which consume approxi-mately291-2
days and form the
basis Tor the month, 1 and the
yearly motion of the earth
around the sun.
The sub-division of the time
which the earth takes to revolve
upon its axis into the 24 spaces
which we know as hours is com
paratively recent. In the time
of Homer only four such divis
ions were recognized morning,
day, evening and night. The
early Jewish historians record
the fact that the night and the
day were each divided into eight
parts , or '"watches." a custom
also ,' followed by the Romans,
who referred to the first, aecond,
third and fourth vigils of the
day, "vesper," "evening," "mid
night" and "cockcrow." . Each
of these spaces was three hours
in length the first vigil commenc
ing at about what we now call 6
o'clock in the morning. But, as
the Romans commenced their
daily time-keeping at sunrise, it
followed that their summer "vig
ils" were longer than .their win
ter ones a condition which led
to the adoption of the modern
division of time into hours, each
of a certain exact length.
