Defense Production Speeds Up
Engineering Research Activity
By A. P. BLAUSTEIN
Due to national defense production
and the desire of industry to dis-
cover new and improved products, the
activities of the Department of En-
gineering Research here have under-
gone a pronounced expansion during
the past few months.
The main reason for the increase
in research work at the University,
according to Prof. A. E. White, di-
rector of the Department, is the fact
that better business conditions are
giving industry the opportunity to re-
lease more funds for study.
"Research is also expanding," he
explained in an interview yesterday,
"because many manufacturers are
attempting to create new industries
to absorb the slack which will occur
when our war production is halted."
With more than 85 projects under;
its jurisdiction, the Department of
Engineering Research has, in many
fields, reached the limit of its equip-
ment and personnel. Although a few
of the projects are being conducted
for the government; Professor White
revealed that the vast majority' were
being studied for various engineering
industries throughout the country.
Among the leading research pro-
jects which are being c~rried on;
through the Department at the pres-
ent time are the production of new
equipment for spectroscopic analy-
To Close Tomorrow
Seniors in the Literary school willt
have their last chance to order com-
mencement announcements today
and tomorrow, according to Ed Tripp,t
chairman of the committee in charge.;
The announcements, which are of-
fered at ten, twenty-five, and fifty
cents, will be sold from 9 to 12 andc
from 1 to 4 in the lobby of Angelli
Hall. The announcements, which listl
all seniors graduating, are not invi-I
tations to the final ceremonies in
sis and of equipment for the analysis
of nitrogen content in steel.
The spectroscopic equipment,
which is being prepared for such con-
cerns as the Bethlehem Steel Co., and
the Ford Motor Co., are being used
to analyzethe quantity of certain al-
loys in steel.
The work which is being conducted
to study nitrogen content began some
time ago when it was discovered that
this element had a pronounced effect
upon the hardenability of steel used
in certain automobile parts. Equip-
ment has also been constructed here
which is able to determine the form
in which the nitrogen appears in steel.
