Final arrangements for the infor-

Waterman gymnasium next Saturday
evening are nearly completed, accord-
ing to Prof. 3. R. Brumm. The ball
is given for the purpose of clearing
up a deficit in the band treasury.
It is probable that the affair will
be open to 500 couples. The tickets
will go on sale Wednesday morning
and they can be purchased by the en-
tire campus. The R. O. T. C. band
will furnish most of the music, and
a regular orchestra will play while.

The bridegroom is a member of the

graduation, will probably leave for

PROF. CROSS TO ILLUSTRATE
GERMAN DESTRUCTION OF ART
Prof. Herbert R. Cross of the fine

(By Prof. W. L. Badger)
In explaining what is included in
the scope of the profession of chemi-
cal engineering, it is scarcely neces-
sary to differentiate it from other
branches of engineering. It is not
always clear, however, as to the dif-
ference between the chemical engi-
neer and the chemist. The difference
is mainly, tho not necessarily, the dif-
ference between laboratory and plant.
The chemist makes analyses and tests,
or carries out research on a small
scale. The chemical engineer takes
the results of the tests and interprets
them in terms of plant operation; or
he takes the laboratory research and
devises the large-scale process to cor-
respond. The resposnsiblity of the
chemical engineer is greater, his field
is wider, his possibile accomplish-
ments more far-reaching, and the de-
mands of his profession more exact-
ing. He must have enough chemistry
to make him a good chemist on his
own responsibility, and enough engi-
neering to enable him to design and
operate large-scale processes.
Chemical Engineering Wide Field
The chemical engineer may find
himself in purely laboratory work;
or he may find himself in work having
but little to do with chemistry. He
may find himself in a process which
would scarcely be called a chemical
process-as, for instance, a metall-
ographic specialist in an automobile
plant; or in a strictly chemical pro-
cess-as in an acid or dye plant; or
in a process which might be thought
a chemical process but which really
asks of him oly mechanical engineer-
ing ability-as in a plant making ordi-
nary table salt. So the field is un-
usually varied, and offers something
to men of all kinds of tastes, from pure
research to pure plant operation.
Qualifications Not Definite
Because of the wide range of work
open to a chemical engineer, the
necessary qualifications are less de-
finite than in some other lines. To be
a good chemical engineer requires a
man of very flexible and open mind,
for he must be both scientist and
technologist-both a chemist and an
engineer. Mathematical ability is not
so necessary as in some other lines,
as most of our processes are still too
little understood to permit us to re-
duce them to mathematical form. A
man must be fond of getting out in
the works and helping to keep things
going-more than in any other line of
engineering, chemical engineering
calls for a man who will get into his
working clothes and get dirty. He
must be possessed of a logical mind;
as all our processes are still in their
infancy, and a man who can see only
what has already been reduced to
order is of little use. We need the
men who can catch an insignificant
variation and reason from it to
changes in the process. We need men
who can design apparatus to do varied
and difficult things, such as carrying
out a reaction at high pressures
where the apparatus :must be com-
plicated, or handling corrosive pro-
ducts when there seems to be no suit-
able material to resist their action.
Opportunities Endless
The opportunities are endless. Dur-
ing the war there are many posts open
in the manufacture of chemicals and
explosives, or in the inspection of mu-
nitions. But we must also look to the
time after the war, when most of us
think, the chemical engineer will
really come into his own. Beside the
manufacture of products considered
strictly chemical, every process work-
ing metal can use a metallographer.I
And for other fields, there are the
manufacture of sugar, leather, paper,7
dyes, rubber, paints, gas, food pro-

ducts, fertilizer, cement, ceramic pro-1
ducts, glass, oils, textiles, soap, and
many more. As to the rewards, a
good man will be sucessful in any
line; but owing to the wide variety of<
opportunities there are perhaps more
chances in chemical engineering forI
a man to find his own particular job,
where he can be contented and give
his best to the work. And that is a
better indication of success than a
large salary. .

CAST ENTERTAINED AT DETROIT
AND KALAMAZOO; CLEAR
$500 ON ROAD
If the success of the "Let's Go!" out-
of-town trip be gauged by the enjoy-
ment of those going on the tour, then
the 1918 Union opera will stand near
the apex of profit-bearing institutions.
From the time that the troupe of
nearly 100 cast chorus and orchestra
members, committeemen, and, retainers
left Ann Arbor on April 5 for Detroit,
until they returned to the "land o'
learning," last Thursday, the players
and their theatrical aides-de-camp
were the recipients of many atten-
tions.
After the Friday night performance
in Detroit, the Athletic club of that
city entertained with a dance and
supper. In Kalamazoo the "Let's
Go!" company was warmly received,
and the members of the cast and
chorus reciprocated by singing selec-
tions from the opera before students
of the Kalamazoo Normal college.
The women members of the cast and
chorus were tendered a tea Monday
afternoon. Monday night, a danco
was given at the Hotel Burdick.
In Battle Creek the company sang
for the soldiers. At the Liberty thea-
ter, where their appearance was un-
announced, the "Let's Go!" cast and
chorus sang before a gathering of ap-
proximately 1,000 khaki-clad fighters.
Later, at Y. M. C. A. hut number 605,
where the news of their arrival had
preceded them, they entertained a
"packed house" of sammies.
Tuesday, the company had dinner
at the Cooks' and Bakers' school, and
Wednesday at the Custer Tea Room.
A dance at the Elks' club followed
the Wednesday night performance in
Battle Creek. The entire troupe re-
turned-to Ann Arbor Thursday noon.
According to an estimate made by
Homer Heath, '07, general secretary
of the Union, $500 was cleared on the
out-of-town trip. The profits of the
Ann Arbor performances range be-
tween $1,200 and $1,500.

NICKELS ARCADE
BALL ROOM

during 1918, according to an an-
nouncement received by Lieut. teorge
C. Mullen from the war department at
Washington yesterday morning. The
statement said that the requirements
were not adequate.
Cadets in the R. 0. T. C. will drill
at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon, except
those in the first battalion of the
Second regiment, who will be given
setting up exercises by Dr. George

"It's up to somebody to do some-
thing now," said William Lennen to
the local selective service board
Saturday, and he was sent to Camp
Custer yesterday morning. He said
he had stood it as long as he could,
and was ready to go anywhere in
the service.
Five men were sent to the Univer-
sity yesterday by the local selective
service board for training as mechani-
cians. They are to be especially in-
structed in the handling of gas en-
gines. The men were Langford H.
Dimond, a member of the Ypsilanti
fire department, Lowre Lovell, Frank
Howard, William L. Keubler, and
William L. Christanelli.
The case against Deputy Sheriff
Ernest White, recently arrested for
drunkenness, was adjourned yester-
day before Justice W. G. Doty for
the period of two weeks. This is the
third time that the case has been
called and adjourned, the attorneys
not being ready for the trial.
Two miles of asphalic pavement
will be -built on the territorial road
west of Ann Arbor, beginning at the
town line on Huron street. The work'
is to be done by the Good Roads dis-
trict in connection with the state
highway department, being the first
road in the county to be constructed
with federal aid. The federal govern-
ment and the state will furnish 50
per cent of the cost of the work,
which amount to approximately $50,-
000. The road is to have a concrete
foundation and an asphalt top. The
contract has been awarded to the W.
B. Chalmers company of Grand
Rapids, and work on the construction
will commence almost immediately.
