With Factories.

That

SOLUTION IS SUGGESTED
Redesigning of Machinery When
Business Is Low Said
to be the Answer.
A charge to engineers and manu-
facturers concerning their duties in
the relief of unemployment and
financial depression was issued yes-,
terday o Dr. Lillian M. Gilbreth,
noted woman engineer and a mem-
ber of President Hoover's emer-
gency committee on employment,
in her address, "The Engineer and
Employment," befoe engineering
students in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre.
"Engineers and manufacturers
should help the unemployment
situation by preparing for coming
prosperity in the efficient redesign-
ing of machines and factories," the
speaker said.
Asks Co-operation.
Dr. Gilbreth stressed the point
that if every industry in the coun-
try would take advantage of the
slack times to remodel and clean
up its plants, jobs would be pro-
vided for many workmen, and en-
gineers would be employed to study
tne ratigue and motions of ma-
chine operators and to build ma-
chines which would require a mini-
mum of these..
With the return of prosperity
this would be advantageous to the
manufacturer, she said, because he
would be ready to produce goods
more efficiently. It would also be
advantageous to the workman, be-
cause he would be able to do more
work in less time and with less
effort. This would shorten the work-
ing day without decreasing pay.
"Every engineer should take the
big job of seeing that everybody
has a job," Dr. Gilbreth stated. "As
the committee is the president's
commistee, and since the president
is an engineer, everyone in this
field should co-operate as much as
possible with him."
Plan to Stimulate Work.
Dr. Gilbreth pointed to the fact
that the committee is one of em-
ployment and not one of unemploy-
cnt. herefore, it is attempting,
primarily, to stimulate work for the
jobless, rather than to give relief
by other methods. To do this, she
stated, accurate and complete facts
concerning conditions are being
obtained. The engineer is aiding in
therapid accumulation of these by
such inventions as the telephone
and the radio.
She further stated that people
who have been contributing all
their life to the welfare of society,
finding themselves for the first-
time without jobs or money, should
not hesitate to take advantage of
anything that is offered to them
that may seem like charity. They
should look upon society as an in-
surance policy for which they have
been paying premiums by giving
therthings that they will not them-
selves accept. Therefore when the
policy becomes due, they shouldI
accept their insurance that is owed
to ahem by society.
After all-campus voting has lim-
ited the field down to five candi-
dates, Rudy Valee is to choose the
co-ed to be "Miss Arctic" at the
Military ball at the University of
North Dakota.

SHOW THEATER DESIGNS
Colors of many different shades
and forms are being shown in the
color exhibit now going on in the
first floor corridors of the archi-.
tectural building.
Works involving virtually all
forms of color designing have been
gathered by Prof. H. A. Fowler and
R. T. Bittinger, of the art faculty
of the University, and, an exhibit
has evolved which, has attracted a
large part of the student body.
Some of the most interesting
designs are those showing plans
for ball rooms and theaters. Mod-
ernistic lines are the prevailing
themes in these drawings and,
coupled with the blendings of dif-
ferent color combinations, have
been found to be the centers of in-
terest to. the observers
Designs for tea and sun-rooms
have also proved popular with
those who have already visited the
showing. These are also on mod-
ernistic lines, but are done in soft-
er colors, the Chinese and French
styles being prevalent. Also includ-
ed in the exhibit are several pos-
ters and advertisements which
have been chosen for their color
quality, and color charts which
show the evolution of the color
scheme. Student exhibits of com-
plements and primaries are also
hung.
The exhibit embraces not only
works of Ameican designers, but
also those of the leading European
artists. Considerable time ad en-
ergy were consumed in collecting
the works, and Professors Fowler
and Bittinger have been preparing
the mountings for. some time. The
exhibit is open daily until Thanks-
