throbbed with a new hope, which was
answered when te third issue of
Whimsies fluttered out of the blue, an-
nouncing a poetry contest.
The results of this contest were so
plentiful and so rich, that the rodest
but happy editors were persuaded to
attempt a real, printing-press bli-
,cation. Encouraged by two faculty
members of the rhetoric dartment
and aided by Mr. Geoge Wahr, local
publisher, Whimsies made its formal
bow to the public in Oune, 1921, its
first printed issue consisting entirely

I TISITORS at the' Chicago World's Fair, in
S 1893, saw the first extensive use of alternat-'
ing current ever undertaken, when Westinghouse
lighted the entire grounds with this type of our-
rent. This achievement marked the beginning of
thecommercialdevelopment ofalternatingcurrent
for power purposes, and brought the induction
motor into a prominence which it has never since
relinquished. Great and 'rapid have been the de-
velopments since that day, but the most impres-
sive aspect of this progress is not to be found in
the spectacular evidences that are visible to'
everyone, but rather, in the vision and funda-
Imental soundness and determination that have
been quietly at work blazing andelearingthetrails
which the electrical art has followed.
There is, for instance, the synchronous con-
verter. This machine is the most efficient and
economical means for changing alternating to
direct current, which the operation of most
street railway systems and many other processes
require. Without it, the development of alter-
nating current to its present universal usefulness
would have been tremendously retarded.
The synchronoussconverter, in its present per-
fection, is but one of the great contributions to
electrical progress that have been made by Ben-
jamin G. Lamme, Chief Engineer of the Westing-
house Electric & Manufacturing Company. Mr.
Lamme, in 1891 when he was Chief Designer,
conceived and developed the converter, which,
first used commercially in connection with the

great Niagara power plan, has since come to be
indispensible to large producers of power.
When a man has played; so vital a part in elec-
trical :progress that his knowledge and vision
have contributed to , practically every forward'
engineering step, it is perhaps misleading to at-
tempt to identify him particularly with any one
development. His work on the induction motor,
the turbo generator, the single-phase railway
, motor, and the synchronous converter is but
typical of the constructive ability which Mr.
Lamme has brpught to bear on practically every
phase of electrical development.
A man of foresight, visioning the alternatives
in a problem as well as its hoped-for results. A
mangy. whose mind combines great power of analy-
sis with the gift of imagination. Aproliflctechpical
writer, whose style is unequalled in clearness and
simplicity of expression. Few engineers so
thoroughly predetermine the results they actu-
ally achieve. Few men capitalize their experiences
so completely. And few indeed have at once his
thorough technical equipment, his commercial
understanding, and his broad human interests.
An institution which has builded its success
largely on engineering achievement pays Benja.
min G. Lamme affectionate loyalty and respect.
The, young engineer on his first job ,as well as the
most seasoned co-worker, finds in him under-
standing, sympathy, wise counsel, and a con-
science; to all of which his associates, in prepar-
ing this article, are proud to bear witness.
