     CIVIL SOCIETY ELECTS OFFICERS
  The election of officers in the American Society of
Civil Engineers on October I7, placed the following
men in power: C. E. Robb, President; Anton Mathy,
Vice-president; George Abendroth, secretary and treas-
urer; Clement Lindner, chairman of publicity commit-
tee; and E. C. Schuman, chairman of program com-
mittee. R. S. Jensen, E. N. Otis, and Louis Alk were
elected to membership. A vigorous membership drive
was carried out immediately following the first meet-
ing and a cider and doughnut fest was held on Oct. 24,
for the purpose of welcoming new members. Professors
Corp, Kinne, and Mead were present and spoke briefly.
  As a contribution to the gaiety of the campus, the
society decided to stimulate the invention of yells to
be hurled across the greensward at the cane-bearers and
has offered three prizes, one of five dollars, one of three
dollars ,and one of one dollar for the most original and
snappiest yells. A committee headed by Larry Sogard
handles the yell contest.
       THOSE LAW-ENGINEER YELLS
  And here is how the law-engineer yells have evo-
luted: Original yell, introduced during the dark ages-
"Well, well, well! Is that the law school? Oh, HELL!"
Response, worked out about 1920-"Pull in your necks,
you plumbers." Come-back, evolved after the adoption
of the lawyern' canes in I92I-"Lean on your canes,
you cripples." Latest nasty cracks from the red-stone
cheshoosegow  introduced  this fall-"Lean on your
wrenches, you monkeys" and "Saint Patrick was an
engineer, he was, he was. Like Hell he was." They've
got us two down as she stands. NEXT.
                SENIOR TRIPS
  tThe Mechanicals and Electricals are going East
again. About thirty men have signed up for the East-
ern trip; this trip will take in Detroit, Buffalo, Pitts-
burg and Cleveland, and will wind up in Chicago for
the game. The itinerary is not fixed at this writing, but
the general territory is as mentioned.  Mighty glad
all you chaps are going. Let's have a high old time,
even though we do miss the Michigan game.
  Prof. McCaffery, of the Mining Department, attended
the American Mining Congress which met in Milwau-
kee September 24 to 29.
