Rivalry for possession of the
slide rule developed on campus
many years ago when law class-
rooms were located in Haven Hall.
Guarding one' entrance to the
diagonal while engineers held the
other side, lawyers would arouse
the engineers' anger by parking a
car in the middle of engine arch
and letting the air out of the tires.
For revenge, the engineers would
form a human chain across the en-
gine arch, preventing the barris-
ters from reaching their class-

The average large steam turbine-generator
costs $3,000,000 and takes two years to build.
It is one of the biggest pieces of electrical
equipment made. Yet its thousands of parts
are put together as carefully as a fine watch.
Even a small change in design can affect the
stresses and vibration of the turbine, and
the way it performs. At General Electrioc
several men share the responsibility of pre-
dicting those effects before the turbine is
built. One of them is 29-year-old E. E.
His job: analytical engineer
Here's what Ted Zwicky does. He takes
a proposed mechanical design feature, de-
scribes it mathematically, breaks" it down
into digestible bits, modifies it, and feeds it
to electronic computers. (It may take two
nmonths to set up a problem; the computers
usually solve it in twenty minutes.) Then
Zwicky takes the answers from the com-
puters, translates and interprets them so they
can be followed by design engineers.
