seen a college than power plant engineering. And it is with no
little satisfaction that this is admitted. Not that we would
estrange the college man from this field, but that it is a good thing
for a business or calling when it is not exclusive and is open to re-
cruits from every walk. We will take this occasion to advise
young graduates who are willing to work hard and persistently for
success and to begin at the bottom to carefully consider the pros-
pects in this field before choosing their work. Because the col-
lege is not, in practice, a preparatory school for steam engineering
is no reason why mechanical engineers should not enter this field,
which is directly in their line of work, and place themselves in
training for the many lucrative positions nowr existing and for the
still better ones that will probably be found in the field before
many years."
