LITERARY WORK FOR ENGINEERS
The engineering college is consider-
ing whether its students should take
literary work in connection with their
technical training. The suggestion,
coming at this time, is worthy of very
The engineer has been coming more
and more to the front in the world's
affairs, and he will play a most vital
part in the reconstruction work now
Engineering has advanced to the
front rank of professions. As such,
it has the right to demand men not
only well versed in their own line of
work, but also well educated in a
broad and general way.
If engineers are to take their places
beside the members of other profes-
sions, they must not be behind in gen-
eral learning and culture. A doctor
who knows nothing but medicine will
not make the best doctor. Neither will
a lawyer who knows nothing but his
law. Obviously, the same applies to
The engineer should take his lit-
erary work before he begins engineer-
ing. Law and medicine have found
this the best method. If the engineer
waits until he is a grad'uate before
taking his year in the literary college,
he may not care to continue, and more-
over his highly technical training will
most likely have unfitted him for study!
in the brother college. Nor do the
two lines of work go hand in hand
Let the engineer begin his University
course by a year or two in the liter-
ary college. Then he can go into eng-
ineering, better fitted both to be a
member of his profession, and a more
valuable member to society.
A professor at the University of
Minnesota asked ninety normal stu-

of the state prohibition law, according
to notification sent to all druggists
