He hakes Gears
Two prominent alumni with the
Western Electric company, J. W. Har-
ris and F. W. Willard, have made a
great deal of progress in the develop-
ment of enamel insulation for induc-
tive circuits. Alumnus, W. Y. Stroh,
patented a process for casting hard
steel gears for heavy machinery and
prior to the war was shipping a large
number of them to the German Gov-
Floyd Nagler, who obtained his doc-
tor's degree from the engineering col-
lege in '17, the first man to obtain such
a degree until that time, has written'
some excellent articles dealing with
research in the hydraulic engineering°
field. In 1918,he won the Collingwood
prize offered by the American society1
of Civil Engineers with an article en-'
titled "Obstruction of Bridge Piers to
the Flow of Water" and the following
year won the same prize with a paper
on "verification of the Bazin Weir
Formula by Hydro-Chemical Gaug-
ings." Both of these articles brought
the author wide fame throughout thej
In 1916 Forest Nagler, '06, perfected
a new type of water wheel especially
adapted to low head adjustments. The
Nagler wheel as the invention is
known, is of the propeller type similar
to the propeller of a ship and is re-
signed for high ratative speed with
large volumes of water. Mr. Nagler
has been associated with the Allis-
Chalmers company since leaving the
Sherzer Develops Pump
Prof, Allen F. Sherzer, of the me-
chanical engineering department, who
graduated from the University in '13,
has developed a three inch centrifugal
pump which is capable of covering the
field where formerly a two inch, a
three inch, a four inch, and a five inch
pump were employed. William Mel-
ville and A. M. Fairlie, alumni, -made
extensive improvements in the meth-
ods of manufacturing sulphuric acid.
Without doubt there have been-many
more inventions credited to graduates
of the University and the list given;
above can in no way be considered a
comprehensive one. So many minor.

provements made in theories and de-
signs of recent years that exact infor-

though the records of the patentoffice
were closely scrutinized. Michigan

their share of this work however and

But the biggest thing by far that the
hurry-up boy has shown in his tryout
in the Twentieth Century league is
that Columbus, the man who gave Wall
street its idea and reason for existence.
when he took the country away from
the Indians for a few neck-lengths of
beads and Woolworth jewelry, was a
contortionist, magician, hypnotist, and
general utility entertainer.
You ask, "How come?" Well, as
they say in the bicycle corps, pedal
down to University hall and come to
attention opposite the registration of-
fice. Then feast your eyes on a gen-
uine replica of a famous piece of sculp-
ture of the beginning, middle and end
of why and how Columbus discov-
. It is a marvelous piece of art. The
best way to judge art is by the Venus
de Milo statue, with the arms broken
off and the face wearing a smile as
if the owner is suing the railroad for
a millionaire's income tax on a charge
of separation. So, on this assumption,
I say that the Columbus series is art.
In one corner, upper left, we see
Christopher imploring Queen Isabella
and her spouse Ferdinand to sign a
royal requisition for one fleet to cross
the Atlantic. He is on' bended knee,
beseeching the crowned heads with
outstretched-hand. Just one hand-.
the other hand probably is hiding in
a pocket, or on the study desk at home.
Isabella, in an adjacent section, is
conversing with her throne mate con-
cerning the advisability of secoiding
Christopher's motion, whilee latter
wears a hopeful candidate rile and
stands on one-foot. He hahis two
hands, but must have forgen his
other fot when he put his al on.
