finish their work with a national
committee working on that problem
At the time of its formation about
a year. ago, the Committee on Acel-
eratiori of Regular Engineering Pro-
grams recommended that engineer-
ing programs be left unchanged. In
view of the war and the need for en-
gineers and technical men in all
fields, however, the committee is
meeting to reconsider its recommend-
ations at that time.
The committee was formed through
the interest of the Society for the
Production of Engineering Education,
of which Professor White is national
president, and is composed of men
holding high positions "in engineer-
ing education all over the country.
At present, the committee is pri-
marily concerned with a careful study
of present engineering programs,
with an eye toward increasing the
present output if possible. The first
meetings of the committee were held
yesterday, and the study will be com-

ance at Rochester, Minn.
The play, which deals sympathet-
ically with Finland's fight -against
Russia, was withdrawn by the author
despite solid bookings in various
cities for the next few weeks because
of a possible misunderstanding of
motives that might result.
Since the traveling company start-
ed the tour, the average gross has
been about $2,000 weekly, with good
possibilities for a long run in play-
