Prof. McFarlan
Describes Job
Of Surveyor
Accuracy Is Prerequisite,
Engineer Says In Talk
Over Radio
The duties and prerequisites for a°
surveyor were outlined yesterday by
Prof. Harold J. McFarlan of the geo-
desy and surveying department in his
radio talk of the Vocational Guidance
Series broadcast direct from the cam-
pus studios of WJR in Morris Hall.
Accuracy, P r o f e s s o r McFarlan
pointed out, is one of the main prere-
quisites for the surveyor. "The sur-
veyor in his struggle for accuracy,"
he stated, "is engaged in a constant
fight against mistakes and errors. He
needs to be extremely careful in
choosing the standards on which he
bases his judgments. He must be log-
ical, in his application of these. He
has to study the nature and causes
of errors."
Pointing out that surveying activ-
ities are extremely varied, Professor
Mcarlan said that they have to do
only in part with mapping and loca-
tion of points and lines on the ground.
"They are basic and fundamental tc
the carrying out of any construction
project," he asserted. "Estimates are
needed to determine the worth of a
plan. After it is made it has to be
laid out on the ground. It is the sur-
veyor's task to direct the work to
make sure that the structure is built
according to his layout and when it is
completed many of the payments are
made in sums that he has computed.
He is both an investigator and a su-
pervising engineer."
The work of the surveyor, Professor!
McFarlan brought out, may be done in
the most dense part of the largest city
or in the least populated jungle or
desert area.
He advised those interested in tak-
ing surveying as a life work that they
should not become too discouraged be-
cause of the fact that there are many
competent surveyors unemployed. He
told them not to be misguided by
thinking that conditions remain fixed.
"It should be stated with emphasis,"
Professor McFarlan declared, "that a
large amount of surveying work is ab-
solutely necessary in order to main-
tain the present manner in which
people live."

"Unfinished Picture," by Theodore
Cohen, is a notable piece of student
writing, and it holds out every promise
of being a notable theatrical produc-
tion. In the first place, it exhibits a,
vivid awareness, on the part of the
rising generation, of its own lack of
faith in life. Again, it records this
sense of helplessness, in winning to
whatever ideals it may foster, with-
out either glorifying or discrediting it
in comparison with the conventional
morality and outlook. Finally, the con-
ventional outlook, exemplified by the
parents, is given its full measure of
value, perhaps more than it deserves.
A wise old aunt, a child, two middle-
aged parents, two grown daughters
and a son engage the business of the
play. The three grown-up children are

trying to find their places in life,
under the anxious care of their par-
ents. One of the girls, beguiled by the
communistic philosophy, is eager to
make social justice to prevail in the
world. Her sister, yielding to artistic
urges, experiments with life rather
pathetically and brings great hurt to
her parents. The boy, favored by his
parents for a scientific career which
there is insufficient money to provide,
grows weary of the painful grind and
elects to give it up and settle down
to a prosaic family life. The parents
strive valiantly for the conventional
ideals of success and happiness, suffer
the bitter disappointments that are
the special portion of self-sacrific-
ing parents, and in the end find
themselves helpless amid the chaos of
the world of today. Only the old aunt,

....remember how I brougtyouw

I give you the mildest, best-tasting
smoke-because I am made of center
leaves only. The top leaves are unripe,
bitter, biting. The bottom leaves are
coarse, sandy, harsh. The center leaves
are the choice leaves. They are mildest,
mellowest, yet richest in fine tobacco
flavor. And I offer you the fragrant,
expensive center leaves exclusively. I
do not irritate your throat. That's why
I dare to say, "I'm your best friend."
