GATHER TOMORROW
IN FIRST MEETING
OVER 70 VISITING ENGINEERS1
WILL GATHER-IN ANNUAL
CONFERENCE HERE
COOLEY S NYS SESSION
WILL IMPROVE SYSTEM
Reception Will Be Given At Union
For Visiting Representatives}
By Faculty
In response to the invitation of
President Marion L. Burton extended
before the first meeting of the divis-
ion of deans and administrative offi-
cers of the society for the Promotion
of engineering education held at
Ithaca during the past year, repre-
senatives from more than 70 engin-
eering institutions will convene here
tomorrow for the first mid-winter con-
ference of the committee.
Dean A. M. Greene, of Princeton
University, is chairman of the commit-
tee this year, succeeding Dean W.Ob.
Raymond of Iowa.
Plan to Broaden Course
The society for the promotion of
engineering educationhave been dis-
cussing the question of the general
broadening of engineering work and
studies more in the way of general
business course. This has been made
possible by the donation of approxi-
mately $150,000 by the Carnegie
Foundation for the systematic study
of engineering education. This has
been started' under W. E. Wickenden,
formerly vice-president of the Amer-.
ican Telegraph and Telephone com-
pany and now director of the investi-
gation.
In commentng on the conference,
Dean M. E.Cooley said yesterday, "I
believe this to bie one of the biggest
and most original investigations in
education and it bids far to material-
ly revolutionize the education system
for engineers." Dean Cooley will sit
at the conference as a representative
of the University.
Activities of the conference delgates,
are scheduled to start at 10:30 o'clock
tomorrow morning when they will
make an -inspection tour of the Col-
leges of Engineering and Architect-
ure, the General Library and the
Clements library. Following this
luncheon will be served at 12:30-
o'clock in the Union. The first con-1
ference will open at 2 o'clock in room I
348 of the 'Engineering building.
Advance Six Plans
At this session the "Length and
Content of the Curriculum" is to be'
the topic of consideration. Six plans
will be advanced at this time. Dean
W. G. Raymond wil introduce the Iowa
plan, Dean H. J. Hughes, the Harvard,
Dean M. E. Cooley, the Michigan, Dean
G. B. Pegram, the Columbia, Dean E.

Predicts Briti sh
Labor Party Fall
"Labor will not continue at the
head of Parliament very long," said
Paul Blanshard, field secretary of thef
League for Industrial Democracy,
yesterday in an interview immediate-
ly following his lecture in the auditor-
ium of the Natural Science building.'
"They can't hold out in Parliament
long," he went on. "All they can do
is to make manifest their standards."
When asked what he thought the
labor party might attempt to do, he
said, "They may be able to put
through an act for the disarmament,
being a pacifist party. They may try
to stop the present Ruhr activities,
thereby causing Poincaire's downfall.
Belonging to the national labor or-I
ganization, they may hope to bind1
themselves closer together with un-
ions in other countries and by means
of strikes attempt to stop any war
which might occur in the future."

to be carried to safety.
It is planned to make investigation,
thorough and when it is found nec-

will be held in the ballroom of the'
Union as on previous years.
Applications for tickets will be
mailed to members of the freshman

the tickets this year will be $5. The'

expedite the work of the committee.
The money advanced will be repaid
at the time of the Frolic.
Every effort is being made to ob-

freshman class in making the Frolic
a success, according to Mark Harring-
