Osterheld, C. M. (ed.) / The Wisconsin engineer
Volume 18, No. 2 (November 1913)
Alumni notes, pp. 95-96 ff.
The WISCONSIN ENGINEER terial, the taste shown in the selection of material, the clearness of the descriptions, the paper, press-work, and half-tones are above criticism. Not to be outdone by the Commonwealth Edison Co. of Chi- eago, which has recently purchased an enormous English-built Parsons Turbine, the Interborough Rapid Transit Co. of New York has awarded a contract to the Westinghouse Machine Co. for a horizontal turbine of 30,000 KW capacity. We hope to 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. Chas. J. Belsky, '10, is instructor in Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. E. E. Sands, '00, is City Engineer of Houston, Texas. John C. Potter, B. S., '04, and E. E.. '09, is pursuing gradu- ate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. J. R. Iackiseh, '10, is in the U.
