U' Grad Cited by General Electric
For Designing Vital War Devices

John Henby Wurster, '39, the son
of Mr. and Mrs. C. V. Wurster of 332
South Division, has been cited by the
General Electric Co. recently for his
work designing new types of electric
capacitors, vital components of all
radar and electronic war equipment,
in their Pittsfield, Mass., plant.
"Every piece of electronic equip-
ment from radio transmitters to mi-
nute aircraft instruments, all devices

upon which the lives of our men and
the success of their missions depend,
employs some type of capacitor,"
Wurster has pointed out. His job is
to design, develop, and test the de-
vices to meet Army and Navy war
standard* requirements.
Wurster graduated from the Uni-
versity in 1939 and enrolled in the
test course for student engineers at
the General Electric Pittsfield plant
the following year.

The sixteenth annual exhibition of
sculpture now on display in the
League galleries has been designed
to capture the 'spirit of the times',
according to Prof. Avard T. Fair-
banks, instructor of the University
,culptor classes.
The exhibit is an example of the
work of Prof. Fairbanks and of the
best work of the students in the var-
ious sculpture classes this semester.
"Each piece is an original composi-

tion which the student has develop-
ed himself," said Prof. Fairbanks.
Exhibit Only Small Part
Prof. Fairbanks emphasized the
fact that the work in the exhibit is
only a small part of the work done
by the students during the semester.
The students first study anatomy,
composition and design; then they
work from models, said Prof. Fair-
banks. The students do not study
old masters or antiques, he said, but
they study the work of former stu-
dents and build up their own confi-
dence to create original works.
Ma ke Small Studies
The students first make small stu-
(lies which are developed into larger
armatures (supporting frameworks)
covered with water clay. Finally the
model is cast in a waste or glue mold
and is retouched. "The complete
process takes much time, and every
model represents hours of work,"
Prof. Fairbanks declared.
Prof. Fairbanks emphasized the
fact that he feels sculpture must be
"an expression of our own times and
our civilization which we are build-
ing-"
