Sabotage .Attempted On Clock
For Annual T ung Oil Banquet
By CHARLES THATCHER
Indignation soared in Sigma Rho
Tau circles yesterday when it was dis-
vovered that a person or persons un-
known had attempted sabotage on the
engineering speech society's all-im-
portant alarm clock, to be used to
time speakers at tomorrow's annual
Tung Oil Banquet.
Apparently dropped from the sec-
ond-floor Sigma Rho Tau conference
room window onto the Engineering
Arch sidewalk below, the clock is still
in running condition, and will be
used to curtail long-winded tenden-
cies at the banquet, president Norman
Taylor, '42E, declared.
To Conduct Investigation
Declining 'to comment further on
the occurrence, Taylor did admit that
severa1 engineering faculty members
have been secretly inquiring about
who is going to be called upon to
speak. tomorrow evening, and that
an investigation would be conducted.
A number of faculty speakers will
be called upon at the banquet, given
a slip bearing the title of their talk,
and told to speak for three minutes
on that subject. It is suspected that
yesterday's foul attack was perpe-
trated by someone desiring to length-
en the period for speaking.
Scorning Prof. R. L. Morrison's use
of a stop-light last year, this year's
toastmaster Prof. E. L. Eriksen of the
engineering mechanics department
hinted that he would introduce a
"new, secret weapon" to combat over-
Senior To Be Honored
In addition to these faculty
speeches for the honor of the Tung
Oil Crown, the most outstanding
senior member of Sigma Rho Tau will
be presented the Cooley Cane at the
banquet, Henry C. Billings, last year's
winner, returning for the presenta-
Only speaker without a time limit
during the evening will be James W.
Parker, vice-president and chief en-
gineer of Detroit Edison, who will
speak on "A Little Knowledge" for
the address of the evening.
Along with the Crown and Cooley
Cane awards to be made during the
evening, several lesser awards will
be made to winners in Sigma Rho Tau
speaking contests held recently, as
well as the Gavel Citation to runners-
up for the Cooley Cane.

To Students Graduating at Com-
mencement, June 21, 1941: The bur-

Service will, of course, return all
diplomas which cannot be delivered.
