Prof. William S. Hobbs of the geol-
ogy departmnent is the author of a,
new book, "Cruises Along By-Ways of
the Pacific", which has recently been
published by the Stratford company
of Boston. The book is the story of
Professor Hobbs' experiences during
the long cruise among the islands of
the Western Pacific which he made
last year.
The trip was made under the au-
spices of the University, and was made
largely pcssible through a grant '
froin the I-Ion. Chase S. Osborn, for-
iner Regent of the University, and
governor of Michigan. The United
^rNav.y department and the Jap-
anese navy also furnished) vessels for
the trip and materially aided in thi's
way.
'Yap, the Caroline islands, the Mar-
shall islands, the Pelew islands, and
the Bonin, Volcano, and Marianne
groups were among the places visit-
ed by the expedition. It was 'origin-
lyally planned to visit the Andainans
and the Nicobars, but this was not
possible owing to a lack of time.
The United States gunboat "Bit-
tern" was placed at Prpfe 3sor Hobbs'
disposal for 'a part of the, trip, and
scveral boats of the Japanese navy
were also offered for his use at va-
rious times..
The book is illustrated with manyj
photographs and has. a number of ex-
planatory maps accornpanying the
reading matter. Native customs, par-
ticularly of the natives of the island
of Yap, where special study was

tngineenng Pox, he Buyer

It is not enough that electrical apparatus
should be carefully conceived, skillfully
designed, and exactingly manufactured.
Engineering, to fulfill all its functions,
must go beyond these irss a ry steps and
do a still more enlighteneb~cd service. It
must apply the (1par!w s to its' uses, so
that not only in designanid construc-tion
but in service as well, all the conditions
that must be reckoned with are fully
satisfied.
rJh is function of *Wes tinghouse appliP-
cation en it eering; covers many fields, and
charges itself with many reslponsilbilitiels.
It is engineering that concerns itself writhi
almiost every aspect of business, central
statioi, tranisporta tion, industrial, nmiii-
ing, electro-chemical, etc. It has the
bhyer's interest constantly at heart.
W'estin ghouse Application E ii gineeri ugF
works with ga lesnien, with buy ers, with
consulting eng ineers, -with contractors,
and with secrvice and repair men; it. finds
and investigates new fields; it checks the

behavior of apparatus, old and new ; it is a
bridlge over which information passes
freely in both directions between W'est-
inghouse and its thousands of clients and
friends.
Be gla d that you are to live and work
in tiiines when the spirit of service domi-
ngtcs coinlerci al operations. The great-
es t ChTange that has occurred in business
in t 17e last few decades has been in the
mmi As of men. No longer need the buyer
beware for it is now known that the
seller's obligati on- reaches beyond the
comiplcetion of the sale; and that it is
both wise and right that every reasonable
effort be made to give the buyer full
value in1both prodluct and satisfaction.
The p~ractise of this policy requires engi-
neering of the highest type in research,.
dlesign, imanufacturing and every other
phase of Westinghouse operations, but
niowhere to greater degree, than in the
field of application engineering, which is
essentially engineering for the buyer.
