  Only a week or two ago most of
the engineering school was busy
paying fitting homage to St. Patrick
(the engineer of all engineers), as
has been custom at Wisconsin since
1912. Behind these annual St. Pat

Pat dance. The candidate repre-
senting the society which obtains
the greatest number of points by
selling tickets and buttons is then
officially declared "St. Pat" at the
dance. This year the honor went to
Arleigh Larson, mechanical engi-
  Beard-growing contests are also
held along with the St. Pat elec-
tions every year. All engineers are
eligible for this contest, the only
requirement being the growth of a
beard. The candidate with the most
artistic beard in the eyes of the
judges is picked at the dance. This
year's best beard was that of George
Zuehlke, civil engineer.

tions of the St. Pat contestants for

societies, plans and controls all of-

for this title each year are elected
by the various engineering societies,
one candidate from each group.
The societies, led by the respective
candidates, then sell given quotas
  Arleigh came to the University
of Wisconsin from Oshkosh Teach-
ers College where he received two
years of schooling. His home is in

spent his recent summer vacation
working on a farm and in a can-
ning factory.
  His yearn for stamp collecting
has been superseded by photogra-
phy since attending university. He
owns several cameras and other
photographic equipment.
  In high school Arleigh partici-
pated in track, dramatics, and ad-
vertising. While going to Oshkosh
State Teachers College he became a
member of the Men's Association
and Lyceum. Now attending the
University of Wisconsin he is at
present vice-president of Triangle
