This "foreign study plan" which

ware institution co-operates with
Michigan and other universities l
throughout the country in sending
" abroad each year a number of jun-

Organization of, Club
Founded in 1885,;
Prof. Benjamin F. Bailey, of the
Electrical engineering department,
today outlined the organization of
the American Institute of Electrical
Engineers. The ,national organiza-
tion was founded in the year.
1885, and has grown~fromn its com-
paratively small beginning to a
group comprising approximately
20,000 members. The student
branch, at the University of Michi-
gan numbers over 40, aiiy stuident
of electrical engineering above the
rank of a freshman, who is inter-
ested, being eligible.
The membership in the n~ational
organization. is divided into four
classes, or branches. The :first of
these and the lowest in rank is the
student branch, to which any elec-
trical engineering student in good
standing is eligible. The next high-
{est division is associate rnermber-
ship. Anyone who is an electrical
engineer is eligible to this branch.
Active membership, which in-
clides the largest number, of
members, ,is open only to those
electrical engineers who have had
five years of practical experience in
the profession. The last, . and molt
exclusive division of the Instituite
comprises those men who have
done over ten years of ,active work
in the field of electrical engineer-
Conferences are held .i t sche-
duled intervals during each year.
Thyre will be a meeting of the In-
stitute at Ann Arbor on March 15,
1930, at which a prominent speak-
or will be present. This arrange-
ment of conferences serves to
maintain the integrity of the
group, and in addition to provide
an opportunity for topics of inter-
est to be discussed.
