ENGINEERS PLAY HOST:
Open House To Reveal Tricks of Trade

Baffled by it all?
University students who are
swamped by engineers' doubletalk
will be able to unravel many of
the mysterious goings-on behind
the doors of the College of En-
gineering tomorrow at the 17th
bi-annual Open House tomorrow
in conjunction with University
Day.
* * *
FROM 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. they
will have the opportunity to roam
the highly technical halls of the
College and lear nthe functions
and principles of everything from
the Physics Department's electron
microscope .to the Engineering Re-
search Institute's Synchrotron.
Guides for conducted tours of
the entire affair will be pro-
vided by the Society of Women
Engineers and Triangle Frater-
nity.
Tours will begin at the booth
in front of the East Engineering
Building and will be in small
groups at frequent intervals.
FOR THE unlucky non-engi-
neers who don't get a holiday to-
morrow and are pressed for time,
guides will assist in mapping spe-
cial tours.
The Engineering Research
Institute, located in the East
Engineering Building, will exhi-
bit eight displays of its research
projects, according to chairman
Jim Wright..
The University Synchroton, a
joint effort by the Institute and
Physics Department, will display
the method of accelerating elec-
trons to .9999 percent of the speed
of light and smashing them
against targets.
A DEMONSTRATION of the
composition of the upper atmos-
phere will explain the types of
gase sand temperatures found 80
to 100 miles up. The information
was gathered from rockets tested
in New Mexico.
