The WISCONSIN ENGINEER
L. C. CREW
   OFFICERS ELECTED AT MINING CLUB
                    MEETING
  The first meeting of the Mining club was held Nov.
7, in the mining laboratory. A steak supper was served.
After the banquet officers for the coming year were
elected.
  They are: M\. H. Hankins '24 President; W. W.
Boley '25, Vice-president; I. M. Murphey '25, Treas-
urer; H. C. Weiss '25, Secretary; W. G. Beatty '24,
Publicity Manager; A. M. Zoeller '26, Mixer; D. S.
Blair '27, H. J. Carroll '27 and Paul Ritter '27, Assis-

        GET HIM A ROBBER'S HORSE
  An irate fan, after the Wisconsin-Michigan game,
stepped up to Eckersall and demanded, "Where's your
dog ?"
  "Dog?" replied Eckersall in a puzzled way, "I
have
no dog."
  "Well, you're the first blind man I ever saw who
didn't have a dog," returned the disgruntled one.
  Dr. Joel Stebbins, director of the Washburn Observa-
tory, addressed the Madison section of the American
Institute of Electrical Engineers on the subject "The
Electrical Photometry of the Stars" at a meeting held
November 22 in the auditorium of the Engineering
building.
ENGINEERING FACULTY THROWS A PARTY
  New members of the Faculty of the College of Engi-
necring were welcomed with a dancing party held on
the evening of November I5, in the gymnasium of Lath-
rop Hall which was decorated for the event. The guests
were entertained during the early part of the evening by
a number of amusing events that were staged under the
direction of Kenneth L. Scott, chairman of the enter-
tainment committee. Included among them were the
estimation and determination of the coefficient of
CORP-orosity of Professor Corp, a demonstration of
impromptu poetry, and a class in spelling that flunked
out on the word "hieroglyphics".  A  feature of the
dancing was the use of colored lights which had been
placed in various parts of the hall.
           FRESHMAN OPEN HOUSE
  On November ninth the Wisconsin Branch of the
A. I. E. E. held open house for all engineering fresh-
men at the electrical laboratories.  The aim  of the
members in holding open house was that of becoming
better acquainted with the Freshmen while giving them
some definite ideas as to what their future work in the
laboratories might be. This idea has not been used in
the College of Engineering before, but it was carried
through successfully this year.
  All arangements were made by a committee acting
under S. M. Coe as chairman and made up of the fol-
lowing men; H. H. Ratcliff, R. A. Merrill, J. S. Timi-
mons, A. J. Larson, R. E. Purucker, and E. M. Plett-
ner.
  There's a silver lining to every cloud.  Even the
Michigan game has its compensation; we have added a
new term to otur vocabulary. Hereafter, let any bad
decision that ranks with the rankest be known as an
"Eckersall".
                    THAT'S SO
  The "Road Scholars" and "Probates"
seem to out-
number the "Rhodes Scholars" and "Tau Betes."
