Professors in Chemical Engineering
Enter Industrial World
During Summer
"Those who are teaching technical
subjects must keep in touch with the
industrial world, otherwise they are
not teaching the thing that students
will need, when they get out of col-
lege," said Dean Mortimer E. Cooley,


of the engineering college, when inter-
viewed by a Daily reporter yesterday.
The remark was made on the in-
quiry of the reporter concerning the
large number of professors of chem-
ical engineering who were employed
this summer in industrial work.
Dean Cooley added, "They must also
know how chemistry is applied in the
arts in order that those they teach
will be able to apply it. Chemistry,
per se, is taught from an academic
standpoint whille chemical engineer-
ing is taught from an industrial
standpoint. One has for its object the
furtherance of scientific knowledge;
' the other, the creation of dollars."
These remarks, supplemented with an
example drawn from German depend-
ence on chemical engineering in the
w present war, depicted Dean Cooley's
definite ideas on the matter of sum-
mer employment.
Michigan added her quota of chem-
ical engineers to the field of industrial
work this summer. Among these were
the following: Prof. W. L. Badger,
who worked for the Detroit Edison
Co. on water :softening and the pre-
vention of boiler scales; Prof. J. D.
Rue, who has charge of the new fel-
lowship in paper manufacture, spent
some time in New York city studying
colors for paper. Prof. A. E. White
was engaged in the study of flaws in
brass castings for the Detroit Copper
and Brass Rolling mills; Prof. E. E.
Ware worked for the Acme White
Lead and Color works, Detroit, on new
formulae for varnishes. Prof. A. H.
White studied the utilization of waste
waters for a paper mill in Pennsyl-
Professors in chemistry, also, were
employed in a similar line of work.
Dr. L. H. Cone studied and designed
a dye works for the Dow Chemical
Co., at Midland, Mich. Dr. J. S. Laird
studied at the government laboratory
of the Bureau of Standards at Pitts-
burg, and in various pottery works.
Yale Freshmen Score; Hold Varsity
New Haven, Conn., Oct. 21.-It took
the freshman team to show up the
Yale Varsity today, when it scored
one touchdown and held the Varsity
to no score. "Willie" Winter was the
man who put the Varsity to grief, go-
ing over the line after the fresh had
worked the whole length of the field
on line plays. The game was prac-
tically over before the regulars woke
up to what was going on. Near the
end of the 16 minutes of play they
worked the ball to within sight of
the yearlings' goal, but lost all chance
of scoring when a forward pass fell
incomplete over the goal line and the
fresh scored a touchdown. Ames, the
third string quarter, played at that
position today.
Harvard Varsity Shows Improvement
Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 21.-The
Harvard Varsity had a hard scrim-
mage today against the scrubs. Some
improvement was shown in that the
regulars were able to score on line
plays and made two goals from the
field. Mahan booted one over from
the exact center of the field and Rob-
erts put one over from the 40-yard
line. The attack was cooler today,
but the defense still appeared ragged.

Believes War Will Decide Fate of
Turkey; Italian-Teuton Alliance
a Mistake, He Says
"Marat" as a man with an honest
purpose, and not an' unscrupulous
demagogue, was the subject of Prof.
William A. Frayer's research work in
Cornell university last year.
In his study of Marat, which is not
yet completed, Professor Frayer will
attempt to prove that the great
French leader was not the conven-
tional agitator that er s in Hugo's
"Ninety-three," and character
that too many histor<ia.s have as-
sumed him to be. While he was un-
sound, his motives were unselfish, and
his theories, based on Rousseau's idea
of popular sovereignty, had a justi-
fiable value.
Professor Frayer said that he be-
lieved the war will decide the fate of
Turkey. Her lease of life will be short
in any event, but the success of the
Teutonic allies will assure her a some-
what prolonged existence in Europe.
On the other hand, if fortune favors
the Triple Entente, it will mean the
elimination of Turkey west of the,
Italy, he thinks, made -an unfortu-
nate mistake in contracting an alli-
ance with Germany and Austria,
which was essentially unnatural and
which public sentiment was sure to
force her to abandon. Had it not
been for this alliance the Italians
might have avoided the charge of op-
portunism which they have brought
upon themselves.

New Systern* of Scoring Will be Tried
This Year
Matches of the interclass bowling
league for this week include the fol-
lowing games: Senior laws vs. senior
lts: senior engineers vs. junior laws;
soph laws vs. junior engineers; soph
fits vs. soph engineers, and fresh laws
vs. fresh engineers.
This year the system of scoring will
be different from the plan of last year.
Instead of determining the events by
the majority of the games, as is the
usual way, the scores will be counted
by the. total rntuaber of points.
On accoant of the enthusiasm and
rivalry (displayed in the games thus
far played, Huston, Brothers have de-
cided to award the members of the
winning team numeral pipes or gold
watch fobs, according to the prefer-
ence of the chaipions. Last year's
winners were the present junior lits,
and this season they again expect to
make a strong bid for the champion-

Seniors Meeting, for First Assembly
of Tear Decide on Programs
and Committees
"Be self-reliant and have confidenceI
in your own ability to climb out ofj

a bad hole.

I know of nothing thatI

makes more for success than getting
into serious trouble and pulling your-
self out." So spoke Dean Mortimer E.
Cooley to the senior engineers yes-
terday at their first regular class as-
semnbly. Dean Cooley, who heads a
program of speakers for the different
asseiblies of the year, concluded,
"Take stock this year and size your-
elf up. Start to change from the
abstract to the concrete. Though you
may not now know what you want
to do when you get out, it is well to
have something definite in mind. Get
an idea of what you want to do as
soon as you can."
President H. H. Phillips appealed
to the class to forget interdepart-#
mental feeling and to work together
as a unit. It was decided to carry
out a regular program of talks given
by outside speakers at the regular
class assemblies. Since the seniors
are to have eight assemblies this year,
a good program is assured.

Committees were appointed as fol-
lows: Social, H. D. Warner, chair-
man; L. C. Rowley, R. S. Archer, C.
EL. Stryker and H. B. \ Bartholf;
finance, M. S. Reed, chairman; R. A.

11. H. Phillips; auditing, J. M. Brown.,
chairman; W. A. Reichle and J. D.

name "Publicity Committee" was ap-
pointed as follows: U. D. Cooke,
