Church Census
Announced By
Dr. Blakeman
Methodists Predominate
As 11 Show Preference
For Atheism
The results of the religious census
which is taken each fall from the
cards filled out by students during
the process of registration were re-
leased yesterday by Dr. Edward W.
Blakeman, counsellor in religious ed-
ucation.
The report reveals that the Metho-
dist denomination leads both in the
number of members and the number
of students who indicated a prefer-
ence for a denomination. A total of
1,116 students, which includes both
men and women, indicated on the
cards that they were members while
1,422 indicated that they were either
members or preferred to be Metho-
dists.
Nine hundred and forty one stu-
dents checked on the registration
blank that they were members of the
Presbyterian church, while 1,189 in-
dicted that they preferred that de-
nomination.
One student indicated that he was
an atheist or agnostic, while a total
of 10 said that they preferred to be
classed as atheists or agnostics.
The total number of Catholics reg-
istered is 750 while 798 checked on the
cards that the preferred the Catholic
religion. The Epsicopal church has
the fourth largest representation
among the students with a total of
705 members and 838 showed .they
preferred to belong to that church.
Practically all the various creeds
and denominations are represented
on the campus, the census shows.
Among the less common beliefs, for
most of which less than seven stu-
dents had indicated a preference,
were: Swedenborgian, Taoism, Zoro-
astrian, Mohammedan and Church
of God.
The total number of students in-
dicating a preference- was 7,485, while
2,103 did not indicate any preference
whatsoever. It was stated yesterday
that those who indicated no prefer-
ence probably did so because they did
not wish to have their names put on
the mailing lists of the various church
groups.
The memberships and preference
for other churches were: Lutheran,
403; Jewish, 994; Congregational,
838; Seventh Day Adventist, 7; Uni-
versalists, 7; Protestant, 142; Con-
gregational, 582; Christian Science,
232; Baptist, 352; Evangelical, 75;
Unitarian, 84; and Friends (Quakers),
11.

Graduate Gets
$2,000 Award
From Belgium
Liege University Honors
Gabriel Kron, '24E, For
Electrical Contribution
A graduate of the electrical engi-
neering department of the University,
Gabriel Kron, '24E, of Schnectady,
New York, recently has been awarded
10,000 Belgian francs ($2,000) as first
prize in a competition for the great-
est contribution to electrical engi-
neering during the last three years.
The competition which was spon-
sored by the George Montefiore
Foundation of the University of Leige,
Belgium, is international in scope and
has not been awarded to an Ameri-
can since 1923, when it was won by
Dean J. B. Whitehead of the engi-
neering college at Johns Hopkins
University.
Mr. Kron's award was based on a
memoir entitled "Non-Riemannian
Dynamics of Rotating Electrical Ma-
chinery," an announcement of his
success in the competition was made
in the current issue of the Electrical
World magazine.
Coming here to the engineering
college in 1921 from the College of
Zilah at Nagybanya, Hungary, he
"demonstrated a genius in mathe-
matical analysis and engineering de-
velopment, coupled with a tremen-
dous capacity for work," according to
Assistant Dean Albert Lovell of the
engineering college.
He is now with the general engi-
neering department of the General
Electric Company, Schenectady, en-
gaged in research work. His recent
work on "The Application of Tensors
to the Analysis of Rotating Elec-
trical Machinery" was presented to
the American Institute of Electrical
Engineers at its 1935 convention at
Cornell University, and is now being
published serially in the General Elec-
tric Review.
