Prince Nicholas remained with the
party only for the reception by city
officials -at the station, being whisk-
ed away then on a mission of his own
design. With officials of the Canadian
National Railways, over whose lines
the queen's special train traveled here,
the prince made a detailed study of
Montreal's terminl facilities. He
evinced keenest interest in the system
of train management and in the maze
of safety devices of the terminal.
Meanwhile Marie and Ileana werei
meeting members of the city council
and making a motor tour of the city
before taking lunch at the Ritz-Carl-
ton hotel. The inspection of the city
was featured by Marie's greeting of
Roumanian subjects at the consulate.
Another tour of the city, taking the;
royal party through Montreal and Mc-
Gill universities and Villa Marie Con-
vent, was arranged for the afternoon.
Tonight the royal visitors will be din-

reception that brought nods and hand
waving from the queen as she rode
through crowded streets.
The scarlet-coated Royal Canadian
Mounted police, forming a line of
march from the queen's car to her
automobile at the station, quickly
caught the eye and admiration of Ma-
rie, who has made friends with many
policemen on her tour of the United
States and Canada.

Preacher Comes For Talk In Response

The Rev. Charles Whitney Gilkey of
Chicago, one of the most popular col-

give the address at the fourth student
convocation Sunday in Hill auditori-
um, according to announcement made.
The Rev. Gilkey has established a
reputation for his many popular ad-
dresses before college students. He
has served as university preacher at
Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Chi-
cago, Toronto, Wellesley, Stanford,
Purdue and elsewhere. Having a
standing agreement with his congre-

President Clarence Cook Little, who
heard him at the Lake Geneva student
'conference last June, in addition to
the arrangements made by the Stu-

! his address here. The Rev. Gilkey
cancelled engagements at Smith and
Mount Holyoke colleges in order to

Dealing with his experiences in con-
nection with inventors, Dr. Alex Dow,
president of the Detroit Edison com-
pany spoke before 300 engineering
students at the semi-annual engineer-

ing and achitecture smoker, last night
at the Union.
The outstanding fault with the larg-
est part of that group who would like
to become inventors, is their lack of
the understanding of the scientific
principles involved, according to Dr.
Dow. "They build machines, which to
all outward appearances, are supposed
to work, and when it is explained to
them why a practicable replica would
not work, due to a disregarded scienti-
fic principle, they refuse to believe it.
