These men have been doing their utmost to master a cer- tain thing in order to improve the past performance. Men who we envy for their rapid advancement in life are men who have worked and studied very diligently in their chosen pro- fession. They were determined to excell others in that certain profession. In or'der to excell others one must have the proper training and must make preparation for what might come in the future, one is lost td the world and will never succeed. Some men...

THE J-TAC O C IE T Y ENGINEERS PRESENT INTERESTING EXPERIMENT PROGRAM Engineers Present Unique Experiment On last Tuesday night, the en- gineers had their meeting' at the drawing room, Weldon Leach, a senior electrical engineer, gave a lecture demonstration of the high frequency coil, better known as the Telsa coil. He first explained the mechanism of the coil, which consisted of a primary coil of a few turns, and a secondary coil of about 2000 turns. A transformer and condenser were hooked in par- alell, with a spark gap between the condenser and the primary coil. Ordinery 60-cycle conent was introduced into the transformer, but by the time the current has reached the Telsa coil, it has a fre- quency of around 16000 beats per second. According to Leach, the voltage across the terminals of the Telsa coil is around 500,000 volts. To prove the above statement, Leach turned all the lights off and turned the current on. Immediate- ly a purple light from the leads on the secondary coil f...

THEJ-TAC DR. WIELAND LECTURES . (Continued Prom Page 3) were interested by Dr. G, R. Wie- land. The topic of his discussion was cyeads, and the lecture was given last Tuesday night. The well known scientist stayed here for a few days making scientific investi- gations and it is understood that he has received some interesting fossils that he will carry back to be studied in the Yale laboratories. He opened the lecture by giving a general background on which he built the rest of the discourse. "Cycads," ho says, "embrace a great number of fossil plants." In order that -we who lack a vocabul- ary of scientific terms could under- stand, he gave the definition of fossil by saying that it is anything that represents ancient life and that fossils are usually fragmen- tary. He explains Low things are pre- served by saying that if it is ex- eluded from atmospheric decay long enough, it will become pre- served. There is a lygnitic stage, ■which is about half way between coal and wood, in the...

Annuals Replaced By Catalogues According to a statement, issued by Charles Friou, editor of the 1931 Grassburro, this year's annual is to be abolished, and in co-operation with Montgomery-Ward and Com- pany, the staff will issue as a cata- logue in its place. The announcement came as a complete ' surprise to the students and faculty, but everyone is con- fident that it will be a great im- provement over the annual of the preceding years. It is rumored that the staff has had very hard luck this year due to the fact that there are quite a few illiterates in their midst. Friou left Monday for Ft. Worth to confer with A. E. Todd, business manager of Montgomery-Ward & Company, who expressed the desire that he would welcome the Grass- burro's co-operation in issuing the greatest catalogue in history. It has been decided that Tafleton and its affairs will occupy the first fif- teen pages of their book. Charles has given each of the members of the staff certain work to" perform, and by ...

In winning this pennant it will be the first time that "C" Com- pany has done It, and the honor that goes ■ with it should be more than other Company can claim.

Every one of them shines like new money, and, judging from the pres- ent data, the one who is finally pronounced as winner of the saber will have acquired it with much difficulty.
