publish more detailed accounts of the two above mentioned in-
stallations, in the near future. Neither of the turbines are in
place as yet.
  Mr. Broders, the staff photographer, is going on the Eastern
trip with the Engineers, and we expect some good live snap-shots
of the places the men will visit. Watch for them in the Decem-
ber issue. Some more of that special feature service that we are
giving you this year.
                     ALUMNI NOTES.
  For a number of years the University Y. M. C. A. conducted a
student employment bureau, through the medium of which needy
students could obtain work to aid them in self-support, and pros-
pective employers could find help.
  This year the Board of Regents made an appropriation to
maintain a graduate and student employment bureau in connec-
tion with the Alumni Association office. When this was done,
the Y. M. C. A. immediately gave over its bureau and patronage
to the Alumni office.
