(Editor's note-In an effort to aid
students and future students in the
University select the professions in
which they are to specialize,. The
Daily has secured a number of spec-
ial articles by leading professors of
the campus. These articles, of which
the following is the first, will be pub-
Iished from time to time. They wlil
discuss three points generally: First,
a definition of the profession; second,
the natural abilities necessary for
success; and third, the possibilities
the profession offers.)

- FRIDAY, APRIL 5th
(By Prof. J. C. Parker)
There is no halo about my profes-
sion. For me it is the biggest, noblest
and most joyous of vocations, and yet
I cannot forget that for some other
chap there is a superior attraction in
medicine, in landscape design, in
business administration, in law, in.
pure science, .and in the so-called
scholarly pursuits. For each of us
there must be some special sacred-
ness in his own work not because it
is his but a devotion to that work
because it has laid a compulsion up-
Let it be noted that mere mechani-
cal inclination does not imply love for
engineering nor fitness for it. All
youngsters like to see the wheels go
round, to take the clock apart and
to tinker its works. The fact. that
during your junior year in high school
you made a toy motor or played with
wireless shows that you were a nor-
mal healthy young animal. My two
year old son likes to play near the
water in the ditch, yet I don't expect
he will be an hydraulician of great-
ness sufficient to shame Leonardo de
Vinci. He's just plain boy.
Qualities of An Engineer
Fitness for engineering demands
power of observation, the logical mind
to reason from the obsei'ved fact and
the initiative which will make the
logical deduction effective for the good
of humanity. If your perceptions are
dull leave engineering alone; if you
can not reason clearly and unerringly
flee this profession; if you are content
with the unapplied, unexpressed re-
sults of your research pursue the
noble work of pure scholarship; if
you have not a keen social sense, find
you a cloister and develop bigly in
intellectual sanctity but don't try,
lacking any of these, to make your
life unhappy in engineering.
Electrical engineering differen-
tiates itself from the other branches
because of two simple facts: First,
that it deals with things that can not
be seen and which are without the
range of common experience; second,
that most of the principles of elec-
tricity and magnetism can be reduced
to simple and rigorous mathematical
form. These respective facts involve
a high degree of imagination and
close reasoning power as require-
ments for success. I do not mean that
these same requirements are absent
from the other branches of engineer-
ing but that electrical engineering
lays a peculiar emphasis onthem.
If a man has the high qualifications
for this work, he can go far-lack-
ing them, his growth is inherently
limited. It is a safe principle that the
higher the requirements of any art,
the bigger will be the opportunities
and the rewards.
Electrical Field Unlimited
Given the call of hte spirit, the will
to work and the peculiar fitness, what
are the outlets in electrical work?

There is work in telephony and
telegraphy, in radio telegraphy and
radio telephony, in electric Illumin-
ation, in connection with machinery
such as motors, generators and trans-
formers, in power production and in
transmission. In any of these lines a
man may find employment for the
best that is in him whether it be in
research or in practical design, in the
technique or in the human organiza-
tion for factory production, in the in-
dividual play of skill in sales or in
the the collective relations with a
The essential thing about the pro-
fession is that it offers a chance for
every fit man to serve humanity in
some way adapted to his peculiar fit-
ness. The personal rewards will come
through the work itself and are great
enough to justify any one's life devo-

CAMPUS EXPRESSES APPROVAL
OF WOMEN WEARING UNIFORMS
Dean Coole, Suggests More Simplicity,
in Dress; Recommends More
Approval of the idea of uniforms
for women is being expressed in many
quarters on the campus.
"I approve of anything that tends
toward simplicity," said Dean M. E.
Cooley yesterday. "If women are to
be put through a course of milifary
drill a uniform is necessary and
whether they have drill or not it seems
to me that a uniform costume is de-
sirable. I would like to' see the wo-
men do more out door work, such as
marching, climbing, and hiking in all
kinds of weather."
Dean Cooley suggests that navy blue
suits could be used for the winter and
white duck for summer thereby mak-
ing a change to suit the weather. He
favors shoes with broad heels and
soles and plain hats with perhaps a
band of ribbon or a feather to add a
touch of smartness.
"As a general proposition the idea
of uniforms for college girls has
many good points, especially from the
standpoint of economy and democ-
racy," said Registrar A. G. Hall. "Many
private schools have been following
the plan for years with very satisfac-
Many women to whom the subject'
was mentioned expressed themselves
as not only willing but anxious to try
out the scheme.

'Engineer Students Get Own Excuses
"Students of the engineering col-
lege must take the initiative in secur-
ing from the assistant dean excuses
for absence from classes. Excuses
must be applied for within five days
after the students' return to classes,"
says a bulletin issued Friday from
the office of the college. "Excused
and unexcused absences," continues
the bulletin, "will be entered upon
the student's cards in the office of the
secretary, and will be kept as a part
of their permanent record of conduct."
Each faculty man of the college
has been instructed to help in the en-
forcement of the rule by keeping a
complete record of the absences, both
excused and unexcused, of the stu-
dents in their classes.
