Engineering Research Division
Provides Contact With Industry

Prof. White Is Director
Of Technical Service
Which Solves Problems
A unique connection between aca-
demic.research and the requirements
of industry is provided by the De-1
partment of Engineering I esearch
under the direction of Prof. Albert
E. White.
The department has the three-fold
purpose of making research facilities
available to industrial concerns, of
giving experience to many of the
faculty in industrial problems and
financial aid to many of the graduate
and undergraduate students.. Under
the direction of the department, the
Univ.ersity supplies the technical
staff and research facilities and the
industrialist ,,provides for the ex-
pense of the work plus a small serv-
ice charge.
Professor White attended Brown
and Harvard Universities and re-
ceived a Doctor of Science degree at
Brown in 1925. He is the author of
more than 75 technical papers deal-
ing with metallurgy and research ad-
ministration,, and has been active in
the creation of the department. He
has served as president of the Ameri-
can Society for Metals and the Ameri-
can Society for Testing Materials.
The Department of Engineering
Research, since its authorization by
the Board of Regents in 1920, has
spent over two million dollars and
has worked out about 1,200 indus-
trial problems in numerous fields.
This department, Professor White
pointed out, is among the leaders in
field of industrial research of the
various universities in the country.
The large measure of success en-
joyed by the department during the
last few months is indicative of the
ever-growing interest 'of modern in-
dustry in fundamental research. Dur-
ing the last full year of operation,
Professor White said, 201 projects
Hostel Director To Speak
Justine Cline, district director of
youth hostels for the Midwest, will

and Abroad" before the regular after.-

speaker, will illustrate his talk with

were worked on by members of the
technical staff.,
Last year the work of the depart-
ment was done by 14 research engi-
neers and physicists, 56 members of
the teaching staff, and about 150
students working part time.
The technical staff placed at the
disposal of industrial concerns is
made up of experts in many branches'
of science and engineering. Industri-
alists can readily obtain the serv-
ices of experts in any line of work.
Also at the disposal of industrial-
ists are the engineering libraries andf
departmental laboratories. In addi-j
ton to the laboratories in engineer-
ing, physics and chemistry, those of
botany, dentistry, forestry, minerol-
ogy, and pharmacology are available
if occasiondemands. Facilities avail-
able in the engineering laboratories
include the wind tunnel of the aero-
nautical engineering department,
structural testing laboratories, metal-
lurgical laboratories and electrical
egineering equipment. In the physics
department, a sound-proof room and
radio laboratory are a few of the
facilities commanded by the depart-
The type of projects undertaken,
recently covers a large variety of
industrial problems. They vary from
the study of a more efficient utiliza-
tion of fuels to the development of
methods of quantitative spectogra-
>hic analysis..

Prof. Lyman S. Judson of Kala-
mazoo, national secretary of the

bers of the society. Prof. T. C. True-
blood, founder of the organization,

Hitler Labeled
Best Salesman
For Aviatilon
Herr Hitler is the greatest sales-
man aviation ever had, Mr. Ernest
R. Breech, Chairman of the Board of
North American Aviation,. told a
j meeting of the Student Branch of
the Institute of the Aeronautical
Sciences last night at the Rackham
"The Fuehrer showed his hand at
Munich," Mr. Beech said, "and did
more to push a world aviatifn de-
velopment than all the speakers and
advertisers since the war. In regard
to the Munich showdown, Mr. Breech
declared that Goering invited Dala-
dier and Chamberlain to a German
airport and showed them 400 identi-
cal bombers, completely equipped
with provisions and crew, and ready
{ or instant flight as an example of
Nazi might in the air.
The speed of German planes, Mr.
Breech explained, was due to strip-
ping the machines to the barest essen-
tials and he said that it is yet to be
proved whether they will stand the
strain of actual combat.

In view of the rapid growth of con-

dent with the approval of the Board
of Regents. The Committee is to
consist of representatives of the

Forestry and Conservation, Nursing
and Music, of the Colleges of En-
gineering, Architecture, and Phar-
macy, and the Division of Hygiene
and Public Health. In addition, the

sent such professional fields as may
be embraced within the jurisdiction
of their respective units.
The Committee shall be futhorized
to act through an Executive Commit-
tee of not less than five members
under such procedure as it may itself
establish. The functions of the Com-
mittee shall be twofold: (1) to keep
itself informed of the experience of
the various units, with a view to har-
monizing and improving established
activities for continuing professional
education; and' (2) to advise the
President, on the basis of this knowl-
edge, concerning the desirability and
character of new projects for con-
tinuing professional education. This
University Committee on Continuing
Professional Education is to replace
the University Committee on Post-
