UNIRSITY ORCHESTRA
ITO APPEAR WEDNESDAY

Organization Numbering 60
Part in Twilight Recital
at 4:15 o'Clock

TakesI

The University Symphony orchestra
nearly 60 strong, will make its first
appearance for the year under the
direction of Samuel Pierson Lockwood
at the twilightrecital in Hill audi-
torium, Wednesday afternoon at 4: 15
o'clock. Harrison Albert Stevens,
pianist, will appear as soloist in Bee-
thoven's Concerto, No. 4. The orches-
tra will offer Gade's Symphony, No. 4,
and Berlioz's Ballet Des Sylphes, from
"Damnation of Faust."
The orchestra is made up largely of
University students with a sprinkling
of towns people and faculty members.
The following instruments are repre-
sented:
First violins 12 second violins 12.

Intercollegiates
Pennsylvania: An examination in con-
temporary history, similar to the
one given last year with such path-
etic results, has been repeated in the
government I course and shows that
the failure of last year was a good
object lesson. Although the im-
provement is marked, Senior Veniz-
elos is still called a town in Greece
or Mexico, and Vance McCormick is
a well known tenor and a war cor-
respondent.
Wisconsin:"Our annual dairy output
exceeds by $20,000,000 the total gold
mined yearly in California, Colorado,
Nevada, and Alaska," says a chart
on the wall of a corridor of the dairy
building.
Darthnmouth: The "lost and found"
bureau conducted by the Y. M. C. A.
is now established on a much larger
and more efficient scale. Books and
articles left in stores will be collect-
ed daily and a bulletin compiled
each day.

ENGINEERING NEWS
although June is still more than six
months off, Prof. J. C. Parker, of the
electrical engineering department, has
already received inquiries from the
Dayton Engineering Laboratories Co.
and the Westinghouse Co., regarding
the securing of positions for the senior
electricals who will graduate during
the coming year.
The Westinghouse company will
send its representative, Mr. H. M.
Biebel, to the engineering college next
Monday in order that the seniors may
secure first hand information about
the company and its employment pol-
icy. Mr. Biebel will hold consultations
on Monday and Tuesday mornings in
Professor Parker's office.
The Dayton company is the concern
which manufactures the Delco self-
starters and ignition systems for auto-
mobiles.
The policy of the Westinghouse is
to shift college graduates through the
different departments in the various
factories until the men have a good
practical knowledge of the business.
Regarding this system Professor Park-
er says, "It is my personal belief that
such jobs are the best kind a man can
get. While the wages are small, the
man who tackles the work for a year
or two is going to do big things in the
future, on account of the broad ex-
perience it is possible to get in this
manner."
The smoker of the juniors last night
will go down as an epoch making
event in the history of the class, for
it was on this occasion that the char-
acteristic color of the corduroy trous-
ers was decided upon. The color is
to be a gray-brown, but in other re-

pects the "pants" will be similar to
those worn by the seniors.
The members of the class can have
their measurements taken at the store
of Allen & Co., on Main street, who
have been awarded the contract, on
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this
week, or in the Engineering society's
room on Friday afternoon from 1 to 5
o'clock. Delivery will be made by the
tailor two weeks after the order has
been taken. Those who desire to do
so can also order a coat and vest of
the same material as the trousers.
Any junior who has not handed in
his name, nickname and address to
B. E. Breckinridge, for the class dir-
ectory, should do so at once. Breck-
enridge will be at the Technic desk on
Wednesday afternoon from 4 to 5
o'clock to receive late entries.
Sophomore engineers will hold their
first smoker of the year at the Union
tonight at 7:30 o'clock. A musical
program has been arranged and cider
and refreshments of a more substanti-
al nature will be on hand In ample
quantities.
Prof. J. R. Allen, head of the
mechanical engineering department,,
and Maurice F. Dunne, '17L, Varsity
left end, will give talks.
U. S. Now Has Employment Agency
The United States government is
now an employment agency in addi-
tion to its other functions. Under the
act passed by congress in 1913 creat-
ing the department of labor,'a United
States employment service has been
established, free to both employer and
employee. The country has been di-
vided into 18 zones with one office in
each, and the local postoffices have ap-
plication blanks which, when filled,
will be carried gratis through the
mails and taken care of by the office
of the zone.
