Will Express Appreciation
In interviews with members of the
ommittee for the dinner, it was stat-
d that the banquet is not given be-
:ause of the temporary retirement of
)eau Cooley but so that "the engi-
leers of Michigan and his host of as-,
,ociates and friends may have an op-
,ortunity to express their apprecia-
tion of his service to the engineering
profession, our public enterprises, our
government and country, and to fit-
tingly express our admiration of his
life-long success and many attain-
ments, and to show him a measure of
our esteem and regard for his high
character, his big-heartedness, genial-
ity, noble aspirations, and his love for
his fellowmen." "The retirement of
Dean Cooley was unknown at the
time the dinner was first planned,"
said Prof. E. L. Bailey, head of 'the
department of electrical engineering.
Dean Cooley received a professor-
ship, in mechanical engineering in
1881 and took the office of Dean of the
Gngineering college in 1904. He be-
