Bank Needs Young Men.
'ollowing the successful example of
German ad English banks, the
tlional City bank, in the establish-
it of its branches in South Amer-
endeavored to select only young
ericans for its service. The dif-
lty of findingyoung men properly
fed. to fill these positions of re-
nsibility abroad was at once met
the bank's plan.
oung men are needed who are
ling to devote their lives to plac-
American foreign trade on a sub-
ntial basis, who know the language
1 the customs of the country where
y. will be stationed,' who can ac-
re the foreigners' manner of doing
iness and at the same time can re-
i their loyalty to the United States
1 develop American commerce.
.fter investigating the situation
efully the bank decided that it was
essarysto work out certain prac-
il courses of study and to create
it in effect is a school of its own,
the purpose of training young men
ng practical banking lines.
Plan Proes Successful.
'he success of the first two years'
erience in bringing a group of col-
s-trained men into the bank, has
to the continuation of the plan
reby the facilities of the National

rating with the various py iver-

A new device for furnishing heat in
a boiler has just been completed by
Prof. S. E. Emswiler of the mechan-
ical engineering department. The in-
novation is being used in connection
with tests on the heat dissipation of
pipes, and consists of a modified form
of electrical heater which can be
placed inside a small boiler.
Owing to the fact that tests are
often conducted in places where it is
either impossiblo or undesirable to
use high steam from other sources,
this small boiler and heater can be
brought into operation on account of
the ease with which it can be trans-
ported and started up.
The final trial of the apparatus is
still in progress, but thus far the re-
sults have been very satisfactory and
there is little doubt that it will be-
come a standard device for testing
raidiators and heating pipes.
