Technic Issue
To Go On Sale
Here Tuesday
Bailey Article On Utilities
Industry To Be Featured;
Editorial Discusses Draft
Highlighting the second issue of
the Michigan Technic, which will go
on sale Tuesday, is an article by Prof.
Benjamin Bailey of the electrical en-
gineering department on the early
developments of the utilities industry
in the United States.
Entitled "From Arc Lights On,"
the story is written autobiographic-
ally and describes Professor Bailey's
experiences in helping to solve the
problems of the electric companies
during the late 1800's and the early
part of the 20th century.
The editorial for this issue is "Stay
Behind the Plow" which deals with
the position of the engineering stu-.
dent during conscription. According
to the members of the Technic staff,
the technical man (and the techni-
cian in training) are too valuable
to defense to become members of
combat units and that all of them
should be exempted from the draft.
Other articles which have been
included in the magazine are "Tires
and War" by Charles R. Tieman,
'41E; "Lubrication: Science" by Ar-
thur W. C. Dobson, '42E, and "Inter-
collegiate Flying" by Leslie J. Trigg,
'41E, and Edward T. Martin, '41E.
