Schenectady, N. Yk, Oct. 26-Dr.
Charles Proteus Steinmetz, electrical
wizard, died at his home here today
of a physical breakdown due to a
trip to the Pacific coast, from which
he recently returned.
Dr. Steinmetz had been under the
care ,of a physician for about two
weeks. He made a six weeks' lecture
tour and returned to his home here
exhausted. His physicians ordered
him to bed and refused to permit vis-
itors to see him.
Dies Without Warning
Last Monday it was announced he
was steadily improving.
This morning, according to reports
from the death chamber at his home,j
he told his nurse a minute or so before=
he died that he was feeling fine. With-
out warning or sign he turned over in
bed and died as he was being served

pays tribute to a scholar whose bril-

Sir Paul Responds
Sir Paul responded with a brief
speech in which he spoke of his "Deep
sense of gratitude for the exceptional
honor about to be conferred," refer-i
red to his own birth and education and
concluded with tributes to America
and to the University.
"What has always attracted me
greatly in the United States," he de-
clared, "is the magnitude of your
American democracy and the general
domination of prosperity. Put even
more admirable than this material
strength and wealth, is the success
with which your country has main-'
tained the democratic ideals of ts
founders. Equality is not an empty
word with you. In America you are
justified in paraphrasing the old
French proverb to the effect that there
are no mean men, only mean tasks.
Every man a'mong you retains his in-
dependence of character and dignity,
re-ardless of the work in which ho i
"While in your country," continued
Sir Paul, "I have learned to appreci-
ate another national quality not gen-
erally recognized, a peculiar aptitude
for friendship in its simplest and tru-
est sense, an aptitude of which it
would be difficult to find the equal
anywhere. In no country is friendship
a more potent force in social life
than in America. As a member of
your University community, I will try
