GRILLED' AT BANQUET:.
Professor Who Can Take It',
Will Win ASMESpoofuncup'

From two tin spoons, a funnel
and a tin cup, rose the coveted
award granted each year to the
most "popular-un-popular" pro-
fessor in the engineering school.
The prized lovingeup, presented
each year at the Spoofuncup Ban-
quet, was put together some years
back by a scientifically minded
member of the American Society
of Mechanical Engineers student
chapter.
Novel Name
Stumped for a name for the
award, engineers finally evolved
the present title, "Spoofuncup" by
taking "spoo" from spoon, "fun"

from funnel, and "cup" from the
tin cup.
This year's banquet will be
held at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday in
the Union. Sponsored by the stu-
dent chapter of the ASME, the
"roast" is a traditional affair
where engineering students can
get back at their professors with-
out fear of retaliation through
their marks.
Besides being asked a rapid fire
series of questions designed to de-
termine their ingenuity, wit and
sense of humor, the "roastee" pro-
fessors must subject themselves to
a continual cross-fire of heckling
from the members present.
He Who Survives
The contestant who is in the
best mental condition after the
grilling will be designated as the
"Man Who Can Take It" and will
be awarded the prized Spoofun-
cup, symbol of being the pfofes-
sor who can best survive the third
degree. The winner will have pos-
session of the cup until next year's
banquet.
Tickets for the banquet are on
sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily
in West Engineering.

Spanish Film,
'La Barraca,'
To Be Shown
La Sociedad Hispanica will pre-
sent "La Barraca," (the Cabin) a
Spanish film, at 8:30 p.m., Wed-
nesday and Thursday, in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Starring are Spanish actors
Domingo Soler, Anita Blanch and
Amparito Manillo.
The film, from a novel by Blas-
co-Ivanez, author of "Blood and
Sand," is a psychological film
dealing with the reactions of a
group of peasants to the oppres-
sion of their landlords and their
own resulting hatreds. The ruin
of one family by death, pestilence
and starvation, is graphically por-
trayed.
Tickets will go on sale at 2 p.m.,
Monday, at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Box Office. Members of La
Sociedad will be admitted free
upon presentation of membership
cards.
Raab To Play
On Broadcast
Emil Raab, violinist, will be
heard on Pi Mu Alpha's musical
program at 4 p.m. today over
WPAG, through Broadcasting
Service facilities.
Accompanied by Robert Hen-
derson, Raab will play the second
and third movements of Bach's
Double Concerto.
Prof. Robert R. White of the
chemical engineering department,
will discuss the chemical engi-
neer's contribution to sponsored
research at 2:45 p.m. today, over
WKAR.

Highlights in the development
of the Alumni Emeritus Club will
be dramatized on "Campus Quar-
ter" from 9:45 to 10 a.m. tomor-
row over Station WPAG.
Established in. 1931 at the final
reunion of the "Tappan Boys" to

Tappan, the club is limited to

the University not less than fifty
years ago.
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, former
head of the English department

instrumental in the organization
of the Club.
