Will Attempt to Improve Turbine.
Six new water turbines have been
designed by Prof. S. J. Zowski, of the
mechanical engineering department,
with the object in view of improving
on the last model which last fall broke
all records for efficiency with a per-
centage of 90.1,-the present high rec-
ord. Three of the turbines are to be
used for research, the purpose being
to discover what can be done with giv-
en proportions by changing the curved
vanes of the turbine runner.

"Discipline and accuracy, brainwork
and 'pep.' You must have these to be-
come good gymnasts." Leading off
with this advice, and following it with
snappy commands, Dr. May led 40
summer students through a stiff set-
tins-up drill followed by work on the
parallel bars and in fencing, at Water-
man gymnasium, yesterday. The cool
wave has put mettle into the exercises,
and the daily work-out is becoming a
popuar feature of the summer session.
At 4:00 o'clock on Mondays, Wed-
nesdays and Fridays, the calisthenic
squad holds forth, while on Tuesdays
and Thursdays lectures are given on
the scientific side of gymnasia. This
course furnishes an excellent opportu-
nity for relaxation and scientific phys-
ical training. It is open to all summer
session students.
