CAMPUS NOTES
  ENGINEER HEADS CARDINAL
               STAFF
  Edward Bachowski, c'34, was ap-
pointed business manager for the
Cardinal on Tuesday, May 2. Evi-
dently, even the Cardinal has come
around to a realization of the fact
that it pays to do things correctly.
Congratulations, Ed., put the Cardinal
en an engineering basis.
  WAGNER WINS YEARLY HER-
    FURTH EFFICIENCY PRIZE
  Aubrey J. Wagner is the winner
in the 1933 Theodore Herfurth Effi-
ciency Award, the judges announced
at a recent meeting in the Park Hotel
The $100 award, which was estab-
lished by Mr. Herfurth in 1928, is
given each year to the best all around
senior man.
      SHAKE 'EM UP, GALS!
  Now   that Haresfoot's "Klipklop"
has come and gone, we can give due
credit to the engineers actively en-
gaged in the production. Wilbur En-
gel, e'34; Bill Roper, Ag. e'34; Harold
Jury, e'35; and J. Thorel, m'34 were
members of the cast. Bob Ball, e'35;
Roland Biersach, m'35; and Ken Wol-
laeger, m'34; were members of the
ensemble, the last two as members
of the fairer sex. Paul Corp, m'33,
formed an integral part

  According to reports, the entire
group had a swell beer party on Fri-
day night of show week out at the
Watertower.   J. Dibble, c'3 5, head
of the stage crew, is of the opinion
that they were the homliest bunch of
chorus girls he's seen in a long time.
The stage crew hollered themselves
hoarse trying to get the girls to smile
sweetly, which, of course, was prac-
tically impossible. The unofficial back-
stage slogan for the show was "You're
a big girl now, keep your skirts
oo0. 0.
ENGINEERS GET "W ' AWARDS
  Major and minor "W" awards
were announced at the meeting of
the student athletic board on Wed-
nesday, March   29.  The engineers
are well represented.  Among those
receiving awards are: Maurice Jansky,
e'35, hockey; Donald Anderson, m'33,
gymnastics; Thomas Bardeen, e'3 3,
swimming; Tony Traskell, m'35, swim-
ming; Kenneth Youngchild, ch'33, wa-
ter polo; Robert Salmon, m'36, Allan
Cole, c'36, and Lloyd Severson, m'36,
wrestling; and James Gillies, ch'36,
hockey.
   ENGINEER'S BLARNEY BEST
   Arthur B. Magidson, c'34, who re-
cently won the privilege of repre-
senting the University of Wisconsin
in the Northern Oratorical League
finals at Iowa City, also won first
place in the finals. Only three other
men from Wisconsin have ever taken
first place, the men being A. Reis,
R. Lafollette, Sr., and S. Tracy.
    OUR FACULTY RECEIVES
             BOUQUET
  The engineering faculty of the
University of Wisconsin took honors
lately when a check of "Who's Who
in Engineering" revealed the fact that
Wisconsin ranks sixth in the number
of outstanding engineers produced in
the last decade. The survey covered
130 colleges and universities in the
United States and Canada and is
therefore extensive enough that the
distinction given Wisconsin may he
called truly  cosmopolitan.  In the
Middle West, only two schools, Mich-
igan and Illinois, outranked Wiscon-
sin. Their history is much older than
that of the Badger campus and there-
fore we need feel no chagrin that
others in the Big Ten have been called
better. Massachusetts Tech is first
and Cornell is second. Both of these
schools concentrate on engineering.
