HUSBAND bids his wife goodbye as he leaves in the morning. "I'll call you up," he says reassuringly. A guest leaves after a pleasant week-end. "I'll call you up," she tells her hostess. An executive sits at his desk handling varied business matters, large and small. "I'll call you up," he answers many times in the course of a busy day. "I'll call you u p " is a phrase that has become part of our language and part of our modern security. Beneath the surface meaning of the words is something more than a casual promise to maintain contact. It is a phrase of confidence and a phrase of friendship. Implied in it is a nearness to everything and everybody.

T h e familiar gesture of lifting the telephone receiver holds boundless possibilities. It may avert a danger, end an anxiety, solve a dilemma, insure an order. O r it may be for some trivial pleasant purpose—a jest to be shared, a greeting to be spoken. Over the telephone speed the thoughts and ideas that change destiny, bring new hope to the wondering and greater achievement to the ambitious. Over the telephone come the "Yes" and " N o , " the "I'll be there" and the "Come at once" that signify decision and create action. Think what this world would be like if you could not telephone so easily to so many people. No friend or place is ever far away when you can say— "I'll call you up."

In the absence of President Robert T. Jones, Jr., who wired that an important business engagement made it necessary for him to be out of the city, Mr. A. L. Loeb, vicepresident, presided and called the annual meeting to order on the night of April twenty-eighth in the auditorium of the Ga. Tech Y. M. C. A. Each member was asked to introduce himself by giving his name and class. The yearly reports of the secretary and the treasurer, respectively, were then read, and adopted. As there was no old business to be considered, the meeting turned its attention to new business which was opened with the announcement of the newly elected officers for the ensuing year beginning in September, as follows: president, Rhodes Perdue; vice-president, A. L. Loeb; vice-president out of state, John G. Chapman, Talladega, Ala., and treasurer, Ed. C. Liddell. At this juncture, Mr. Geo. W. McCarty, Jr., arose and made his report for a committee composed of himself, Mr. W. H. Glenn and Mr. Frank Spratlin, as appointed by Mr. Robert Jones, Jr., at an Alumni Executive Board meeting on April twentieth, to confer with the Board of Regents in reference to the consolidation affecting the School of Commerce at Georgia Tech. Mr. McCarty stated that he and the other committee members were very affably and considerately received by the chairman of the board, but added that they could be given no assurance that the department concerned would not be transferred. However, they in turn were referred to a committee of three of the Board of Regents, two of whom were Tech appointees and the other from Atlanta, and it appeared quite probable that there would be some modification of the proposed plans at the May twelfth meeting of the Board of Regents. Coach Alexander gave an interesting talk at this point, and made it plain that athletics would not be affected by the consolidation, if that were to be considered a matter at issue. He further stated that plenty of business subjects were left in the courses for all students to get wellgrounded in necessary business fundamentals. Then Mr. McCarty again arose and asked for suggestions from the floor which brought forth considerable constructive comment and the unanimous adoption of a resolution as presented by Mr. H. Wayne " P a t " Patterson. The resolution embodied the statement that the meeting was in accord with the plans to govern the University System by a Board of Regents and set forth reasons showing the practicability of keeping the School of Commerce at Georgia Tech and requested the Board of Regents to do so. The resolution was given to Mr. McCarty to present to the board through his committee, which subsequently was reappointed by vote of the members at the meeting. A motion was then made, seconded, and unanimously passed providing for the appointment of a committee to compile a complete list of prominent Georgia Tech alumni in the ten Congressional Districts of Georgia, with the purpose of keeping the list up-to-date, and constantly before the Governor of the state and other authorities in order that effective consideration might be given Georgia Tech alumni in future appointments to the Board of Regents. A list as suggested had already been prepared by the secretary and it is to be augmented by names such as the committee concerned will provide or as may be suggested by any other alumni, in general. The following were appointed to the latter committee: W. A. Alexander, A. L. Loeb, George Marchmont, George W. McCarty, Jr., and Tyler Montague. As there was no further business to be transacted, the meeting adjourned at 10:15 P.M.

Report of the Secretary for the Year 1932-'33 Although our income has been less by 23 per cent as opposed to last year and about 50 per cent less than in normal years, the National Georgia Tech Alumni Association has continued onward and accomplished some real results despite the economies that had to be instituted. Particular efforts were made to find employment for unemployed alumni and students and the results in this connection have been very gratifying; unfortunately, however, there remains quite a lot for all of us to do in that regard. Georgia Tech clubs and alumni throughout the country have been very generous with their assistance in this connection and our thanks and those who have been affected, are graciously given to these loyal friends. May we appeal to all of you to bear in mind our unemployed alumni, the coming graduates, and students, when any opportunity at all presents itself to you for the placement of Tech men. The Community' Placement Office is co-operating with the colleges in Atlanta in college placement work and we suggest that those concerned report to the College Placement Department of that office in Atlanta, at 83 Poplar Street and register with them as well as with us. The Alumni Foundation is building steadily toward its goal and bids fair to be one of the biggest functions of the alumni association. Much credit is due to all the members on the Foundation Board and to our other alumni who have directed the insurance project. For the benefit of those who may wish the information we shall again publish our alumni activities. It is worthy of note to mention that progress continues to be shown on each of the items and decided advancements have been made on some, in particular. 1. The correction of addresses, classification of alumni and the enlargement of the list of names and addresses. 2. Organizing and reorganizing local Tech Clubs. 3. Editing and publishing the Georgia Tech Alumnus, during the scholastic months. 4. Informing all graduates and non-graduates that they are entitled to membership in the association and enlisting their moral and financial co-operation for the support of the organization. 5. To stimulate the interest of the alumni in reunions, commencements and homecoming days. 6. To secure maintenance endowments and Research Funds for the school. 7. To assist in the work of the different auxiliaries and organizations composed of the mothers, wives and sisters of the students, professors and alumni. The organizations have made some very fine contributions to Georgia Tech and have been valuable adjuncts in many ways. 8. The operation of a. local, state, and national news publicity bureau for Georgia. Tech so that its great work, in addition to its athletic record, may receive the recognition to which it is so justly entitled. 9. To encourage the attendance at Tech of the more serious-minded high school boys and wholesome, manly, studious athletes, and to add to our school scholarships for the poorer boys of both classes. 10. To operate an employment bureau for former Tech men, the graduating classes, and the students, all without cost to employer or applicant for employment. 11. To act as an information bureau for the alumni and to assist the Athletic Association in reaching all of the former students so that the latter may have the privilege of exercising their prerogatives in the purchase of tickets to any or all athletic events. 12. To lend our help and influence toward the develop-

ment of associations for the betterment of elementary and higher education throughout the state and nation. 13. To distribute booklets, pamphlets, and other inspiring literature to the students, with the view of helping to direct them vocationally and for furthering their self-analysis and the like. 14. To encourage experienced alumni and others to give lectures, consistent with schedules and similar school arrangements, and to encourage debates and public speaking together with inspection tours of manufacturing plants, large developments and other industries and businesses. 15. The publication of an Alumni Directory with periodical regularity. The 1930 Directory with geographical listings was completed and mailed to all active alumni during that year. 16. Publication of the War Record of the Alumni and the Institution. This was started in March, 1927, and has been completed. 17. To aid in and enlist the co-operation of the Alumni in worthy causes, merited presentations, and the like. There are thirty-five Georgia Tech Clubs throughout the country and there has been more interest shown by them than in the past. The alumni everywhere are most hospitable to the different teams and officials of the institution whenever visits are made to their cities. The Georgia Tech Alumnus conforms to the standards of the National Alumni Magazines, Associated, of which it is a member in good standing. At this juncture, it is gratifying to state that our alumni have expressed every willingness to co-operate with the college for its best interests in reference to the recent consolidation plans of the Board of Regents. The Executive Board of the Alumni Association with its president and all former presidents of the association and former trustees in the city held a conference on April twentieth and went into every angle of the consolidation, at that time. An alumni committee was appointed by the president and these gentlemen have some reassuring information to present as a result of their activities. It is certain that modifications will be effected and that present conditions may possibly remain unchanged; if not, plans are being favorably considered by the heads of departments concerned at Tech and Georgia, whereby the last two years of the commercial or business courses will be completed in a commercial center. You are entitled to a larger representation on the Board of Regents and plans are being made with this important end in view. In conclusion, it is a sincere pleasure to congratulate all of you on your alumni consciousness, and this is stated advisedly, for no one man, executive board or officers can successfully carry out a progressive alumni program without the team work of every loyal soul. An alumni association is vital to every college and no college operates without such an organization behind it. It goes without saying, that all of you join in expressing our sincerest appreciation to our present and past officers, fund workers, and committee members for their efforts and loyalty to Georgia Tech. Their compensations lie within them and may we add that in the very distant future when Nature receives you and all the rest of us back into its folds, there will be therein a bit of the AVhite and Gold forever "carrying o n . " Respectfully submitted, R. J. Thiesen, Secretary, April 28, 1933. NatT. Ga. Tech Alumni Asso.

Board of Regents Order Consolidations As announced in news items and Associated Press articles on April 15th, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia ordered sweeping changes which affected every branch of the system. The reorganization plans, in brief, are as follows: Consolidation of the State College of Agriculture and the State Teachers' College as departments of the University of Georgia, under a single president, with deans at the head of each department. Discontinuance of the Medical Department of the University of Georgia at Augusta. Merging of the Fourth District A. & M. School, at Carrollton, the Bowden State Normal and Industrial College, at Bowden, and the Seventh District A. & M. School, at Powder Springs, in a single institution at Carrollton to be known as the West Georgia College, a teacher-training school. Abolition of the Georgia Industrial College, at Barnesville, the Eighth District A. & M. School, at Madison, and the Georgia Vocational and Trades School, at Monroe. Transfer of the civil engineering department of the University of Georgia to Georgia Tech. .Discontinuance of the School of Commerce at Georgia Tech, retaining the Tech Evening School of Commerce. Announcement that Chancellor Charles N. Snelling would, at his own request, retire from that post to become chancellor emeritus as soon as a successor may be chosen. Revamping of the University System and the curricula of the various branches as to eliminate overlapping functions will result in a saving of between $400,000 and $500000 a year, according to Hughes Spalding, chairman of the board. This will enable the system to live well within its incomes for 1933 and for the next biennium, he said. The changes all become effective July 1. All senior work will be discontinued at the North Georgia College at Dahlonega, so that this institution becomes a junior college. The new West Georgia College at Carrollton, representing a merger of the Bowden Normal and Industrial School the Fourth District A. & M. School and the Seventh District A. & M. School, will offer a two-year normal course for teacher-training. The Georgia State College for men at Tifton will become an institution offering a two-year terminal course in agriculture. Funds for one year's medical education elsewhere were provided for all undergraduates at the Medical Department in Augusta. Stating that all technical education should be centered at Georgia Tech, the Board of Regents voted to remove the civil engineering department of the University of Georgia from Athens to Atlanta. The board further authorized the inauguration of courses in accounting, economics, finance and business law in the senior division of Tech and announced that "Under present conditions, it is neither efficient nor economical to conduct 2 schools of commerce within sixty-eight miles of each other, The Board realizes that Atlanta, the largest city in the state, is in need of facilities of this kind, but a fine course in commerce is already available at Emory University, and in other institutions in or near Atlanta. The university system should co-ordinate, and to some extent circumscribe its educational program with existing institutions of high grade in Atlanta, Macon and elsewhere." Due to lack of time, personnel matters in general were postponed until the May twelfth meeting for action. Heads of institutions in the system that were re-elected a t the meeing, however, were: Georgia Tech, Atlanta, Dr. M. L. Brittain; Georgia State College for Women, Milledgeville, Dr. J. L. Beeson; University of Georgia, Athens, Dr. S. V. Sanford; South Georgia Teachers' College, Statesboro, Dr. Guy H. Wells; South Georgia State College, Douglas, Dr. J. M. Thrash; North Georgia College, Dahlonega, Dr. F . G. Branch, formerly at

Tifton; Georgia Experiment Station, Griffin, Ga., H. P. Stuckev; Georgia Southwest College, Americus, Dr. J. M. Prance'; Middle Georgia College, Cochran, Dr. L. H. Browning; State Teachers' and Agricultural College (colored), Forsyth, W. M. Hubbard; Georgia State Industrial College (colored), Savannah, B. F . Hubert. In order to eliminate the necessity for frequent board meetings and to conserve the time of the members of the board, a standing committee was proposed to hear all petitions and complaints which heretofore have been presented to the entire board. As previously stated in these columns and elsewhere, the Board of Regents is composed of twelve members, including the governor ex-officio. There is one member from the state-at-large, and each of the ten congressional districts also has its representative in the group. The board eleets its own chairman. The personnel of the board is as follows: Governor Eugene Talmadge, Hughes Spalding, chairman; Marion Smith, Atlanta; W. Elliott Dunwody, Jr., Macon; A. Pratt Adams, Savannah; William J. Vereen, Moultrie; George C. Woodruff, Columbus; Cason J. Calloway, LaGrange; E. S. Ault, Cedartown; M. D. Dickerson, Douglas; Paul Burson, Monroe, and Chief Justice Richard B. Russell, Winder. Students and Alumni Hold Meetings Immediately following the announced changes, students, alumni, and friends of the various departments and schools, presented petitions and claims as to the respective merits of the institutions concerned and their desires in connection therewith. On Tuesday, April 18, the commerce students of Georgia Tech held a mass meeting and formulated plans through which they sought to retain their department. After investigations and considerable thought on the part of these students, they compiled a set of reasons which they proposed to present to the individual members of the Board of Regents; the reasons set forth are as follows: Ten Reasons Why the Board of Regents Should Not Abolish the School of Commerce at Georgia Tech (Distributed by Undergraduate Students of Georgia Tech.) 1. Atlanta, the commercial center of the South, is the logical place for a Commerce School. The size of the city and its well-equipped libraries provide a fertile field for business research. Many boys pay their way through school by securing work in Atlanta, work which would not be available in a smaller city. 2. The Tech Commerce School since its founding has not required one cent of the state's money for operation, but on the other hand has contributed much to other departments. This year Commerce students at Georgia Tech paid in over $53,000 to the school in fees. The Commerce School budget called for $28,000. This balanee of $25,000 was turned over to other departments. 3. The proposed abolishment of the Commerce School will not result in the intended economy, but would lose for the state from one to three hundred students per year who would be forced to attend private institutions for a commercial education. 4. Fifty-three per cent of the students in the Georgia Tech Commerce School, or two hundred and thirty-eight students, are Atlanta boys. Should these, and future Atlanta boys, be forced to leave home at a great cost in order to secure an education from the state? 5. The tuition to the only other college in Atlanta comparable to that of Tech, is double that of Georgia Tech. 0. There is no other School of Commerce in Atlanta that is recognized by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business as an accredited School of Commerce, other than the foregoing. 7. We believe that the people of Georgia and certainly the students at Tech consider our School of Commerce the most important in Georgia. 8. The consolidation of the two schools would in no way (Continued on next page)

THE

GEORGIA

Board of Regents Consolidations help the School of Commerce of the University of Georgia. It merely amounts to the abolishment of a much needed, a profitable, and incidentally the largest single department in the University System. 9. If not a technically legal contract there is certainly a strong moral obligation on the part of the State of Georgia to give to some three hundred and fifty freshmen, sophomores and juniors now enrolled, a degree in Commerce from Georgia Tech, which has been made impossible under the Regent's act. 10. There are only nine counties in the state that pay in more in taxes to the state than they receive back in various appropriations. The taxpayers of Fulton and DeKalb Counties are responsible for sixty per cent of this excess. Is taking away from them the opportunity to educate their sons in commerce under the state system giving them proper consideration ? The Regents and the Examiners could not have been cognizant of all these facts and of the effect of this move. The effect on Tech will be most serious and we do not believe it will help our sister institution, the University of Georgia. Signed: STUDENTS COMMITTEE. Alumni Action—Coach's Statement At the April twentieth meeting of the Executive Board of the National Ga. Tech Alumni Association, as also attended by former presidents of the association and former trustees of Tech, a committee of students presented their case for alumni consideration. A committee of alumni was appointed by President Robert T. Jones, Jr., to go into the matter thoroughly and report

back to the annual meeting on April 28th. This was done, as stated in the minutes of the annual meeting in the opening page of this issue. The committee was confirmed at the business session with full powers to act for the alumni association, and were therewith handed a resolution of the meeting to the board requesting that the status of the commerce department be left unchanged. At this writing the alumni committee has an appointment to meet with a committee from the Board of Regents to go into the entire situation of the consolidation insofar as it affects the students, Georgia Tech and the welfare of the state. For the information of those interested in the consolidation from an athletic point of view, Coach W. A. Alexander offered the following statement to the press: " I expect a full squad of football players on hand next fall. "Georgia Tech will still offer such a wide variety of courses which will fit a student for an engineering course that I do not anticipate losing any athletes who are now in high school and who may desire to enter Tech. " I n regard to the status of students that are now in the school of commerce, arrangements will be made to let them continue their work at Tech in the general science courses if they desire to stay at Tech. A good portion of the course will be in business and commercial subjects. " I doubt if the school will lose any athletes, I expect our full squad to be on hand next fall. Georgia Tech had athletics before the school of commerce was established and will continue to have them if it is abolished." (Editor's Note: The foregoing article is published in order to give particulars in brief and the various Tech views on the consolidation plans.)

Regents Modify Plans

Football Letter To G o Out In August

Just as the forms of this issue were about to be closed prior to going to press, it was announced that the Board of Regents had modified the plans as outlined in the foregoing article. After long and arduous sessions on May twelfth and thirteenth, the Regents enacted the following: 1. Election of Philip Weltner, Atlanta lawyer, and educational director, as chancellor of the University of Georgia system. 2. Abolishment of the School of Commerce of Georgia Tech after the next scholastic year. 3. Abolishment of the junior colleges at Monroe and Barnesville on July 1, following consolidation of similar schools at Carrollton, Bowden and Powder Springs. 4. Appointment of a committee to investigate plans to abolish the Medical College of the University of Georgia at Augusta or to remove the college to Athens. 5. Creation of a co-ordinate college for women at the University of Georgia, using the building of the present State Teachers' College for freshmen and sophomore girl students. 6. Transfer of the extension work of the University of Georgia from Athens to Atlanta, where it will be under the supervision of Chancellor Emeritus Charles M. Snelling. 7. Transfers of several present college heads to other state institutions. 8. Reductions of all salaries to bring about a total saving of more than $400,000 in the university system during the present school year. (Continued on page 77)

The usual application blanks for football tickets will be mailed to all alumni on the mailing list of the National Georgia Tech Alumni Association about the middle of August. The home schedule is probably one of the best that Tech has ever had. The prospects for next season are encouraging. There has been a drastic reduction in prices of tickets for single games in the East and West stands, and a still greater saving in the price of season tickets. Those who expect to be away from home any time during the summer, may send in their applications to the Georgia Tech Athletic Association before the blanks are mailed out. While it is more convenient to all concerned, it isn't necessary to await the receipt of the forms in order to obtain reservations.

Robert, Jr., Assumes High U. S. Post

L. W. Robert,

Jr.,

Assistant Secretary United

States

Treasury

Mr. L. W. " C h i p " Robert, Jr., assumed his duties as one of the highest presidential appointees in the country when he took his oath of office as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury on April seventeenth. The Assistant Secretary of the Treasury took his oath in the reception room of Secretary of the Treasury Woodin, surrounded by relatives, friends, and officials and immediately entered upon his duties in the "Little Cabinet" of the United States. Prior to the induction ceremony, former U. S. Senator, Major Cohen, intimate friend of Mr. Robert, presented the new official, his family and relatives, to President Roosevelt at the White House. The President is also a close friend of the assistant secretary and it gave him unusual satisfaction in signing Mr. Robert's commission to office. The President presented the pen used in the ceremony to L. W. Robert III. Mr. Robert was not an applicant for any appointment under the Roosevelt administration and his justly deserved honors came without his solicitation. Mr. Secretary or " C h i p " Robert, as he is intimately known to all Georgia Tech alumni and other friends, was born in Monticello, Ga. He attended Georgia Tech and was graduated with degrees in civil and electrical engineering in 1908. He was a star on Tech's football and baseball teams and outstanding in many other undergraduate activities, a member of the consulting board of engineers at Georgia Tech and past executive chairman of the board of trustees, and on the Tech Athletic Association Board. Mr. Robert is a member of the Georgia State Board of Architects, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and other organizations, besides which he holds directorates in the First National

Bank of Atlanta, the Carolina Textile Corporation, the Seaboard Airline Railway and other corporations. In 1916, Mr. Robert organized the firm of Robert & Co., consulting engineers and architects, with headquarters at Atlanta. Since its organization, this firm has handled engineering, design and construction of more than $250,000,000 of construction work in more than thirty states of the Union. Its work is entirely consulting, as the firm does no contracting. Its clients have numbered many of the leading corporations of the country, as well as many states, counties and municipalities, and it also has rendered professional services to the Federal government. Mr. Robert resigned as President of Robert and Co., and gave up his direct affiliation with the company, upon assuming the duties of his new post. The assistant secretaryship of the treasury not only has charge of all public buildings work of the department, including the office of the supervising architect, handling plans and contracts and subsequent custodial care, but it also has charge of the Public Health Service, having charge of marine hospitals, quarantine stations and health activities ; the division of appointments of the Treasury Department; in charge of personnel both in Washington and in the field; the division of supply, which makes all purchases for the department, and the general supply committee, which is a central purchasing agency for all governmental agencies in Washington for certain of the standard requirements. Georgia Tech particularly, Atlanta and the South in general, are all intensely gratified at the high honor that has come to their fellow citizen and friend. " C h i p " has rendered great and unselfish services to Georgia Tech and to the State of Georgia and his many friends are sincerely happy over his continued success. While regretting his departure from his native state, it is realized that his extraordinary initiative and ability will be invaluable to our great nation and our human, masterful and dynamic President.

C. L. Emerson Becomes President of Robert and Company In order that he may devote his entire time to the service of his country and the new administration, L. W. Robert, Jr., newly appointed Assistant Secretary of the U. S. Treasury, has given up his private practice and severed his direct connection with Robert & Co., well-known architects and engineers. He is succeeded as president by Cherry L. Emerson, formerly vice-president and chief engineer. Jesse M. Shelton, formerly vice-president, becomes vicepresident and treasurer, and Captain L. W. Robert, Sr., Mr. Robert's father, continues to serve as secretary. Except for these changes in the officers, the organization of Robert & Co., in which all engineering department heads have been in their present positions for ten years or more, remains exactly as in the past. Mr. Emerson, the new president of Robert & Co., is one of the best known engineers in the South, and has been with the company since 1919. He was chief engineer until 1922 and since that time has served as vice-president and chief engineer. He is a graduate of the class of 1909. Mr. Shelton, like Mr. Robert and Mr. Emerson is also an alumnus of Georgia Tech, class of 1916, and is widely known in the architectural and engineering field.

Commemoration Day Inauguration In an inspiring speech, following the honor exercises, Dean W. V. Skiles dedicated the Tech Dining Hall as Brittain Hall, in honor of President M. L. Brittain, and unveiled a bronze tablet as a mark of appreciation of Tech's faculty for Dr. Brittain's services and as an expression of their high esteem. "Brittain H a l l " is carved in the marble over the main entrance to the hall and the tablet is placed on the right of the entrance. The tablet bears the following inscription: " I n appreciation of the distinguished service of Marion Luther Brittain as President of Georgia School of Technology, and as an expression of their high esteem, the members of the faculty have inscribed this tablet, an ddedicate this building as Brittain Hall. April 28, 1933." At 7:30 P.M. the annual military dress review was held under flood-lights on Grant Field. A large crowd witnessed the drills, presentation of military awards, and the reviews, all of which was highly entertaining and inspiring from start to finish. The annual business meeting of the National Georgia Tech Alumni Association followed at 8:30, in connection with the activities, as elsewhere stated in this issue. Throughout the day the college and the fraternities held "open house" for the families and friends of the students and alumni.

Exercises

In conjunction with Honor Day, the first Founders' Commemoration Day was inaugurated on Friday, April 28th. The exercises began with the conferring of scholastic honors at 10:30 in the morning and continued through the spectacular Army and Navy ball, long into the night. The commemoration ceremony was the beginning of an annual tribute to those leaders who were instrumental in the establishment of the institution. An outstanding feature of the observance was the dedication of the new dining hall in honor of Dr. M. L. Brittain, president of Georgia Tech. The program was opened with "good old Georgia Tech music" following which Dr. Brittain extended greetings to the large assemblage and introduced the speaker of the day, Dr. Louie D. Newton, pastor of the Druid Hills Baptist Church, in Atlanta. Mr. H. H. Caldwell, registrar, then read the honor roll of all students whose averages for the year were in the upper ten per cent of the class average. This was followed by the presentation of certificates to those who had been elected to the scholastic fraternities. Medals, cups, and other rewards were then bestowed upon the various winners in the different classes and departments. This was concluded by the awarding of the President's gold T's by Dr. Brittain to the twenty outstanding members of the entire student body.

Candler-FAdredge Centering widespread social interest is the announcement made by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Howard Candler of the engagement of their daughter, Mary Louisa, to Mr. Alfred Turner Eldredge, the marriage to be solemnized June 7th, at a home ceremony in Atlanta. Mr. Eldredge is of the 1932 class, receiving a B.S. in Comm. degree. C'annon-Ludmg Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Cannon announce the engagement of their daughter, Bernice Irene, to Mr. Willis Dickson Ludwig, of Atlanta, formerly of Montgomery, Ala., the marriage tobe an event of early summer. Mr. Ludwig received a B.S. in M.E. degree with the '32 class. Glanton-Manget Of cordial interest to a wide circle of friends in the South is the announcement made by Mr. and Mrs. William Anderson Glanton, of LaGrange, of the engagement of their daughter, Kathryn, to Mr. Victor Eugene Manget, Jr., of Galveston, Texas, the marriage to be solemnized in June. Mr. Manget was a member of the 1929 class, receiving a B.S. in T.E. degree. Matlier-Pettys Of wide interest throughout the South is the announcement made by Mr. and Mrs. Roy Mather of the marriage of their daughter, Jenny Lind, to Mr. Norman William Pettys, the marriage being solemnized May 3rd, in Atlanta.

Track Team Has Good Season; Walker Sets Conference Record Winning two out of three meets to date, the Georgia Tech track team has enjoyed a fairly successful season this spring. Clemson and Kentucky have met defeat at the hands of the Jackets, but the Tech boys lost a close meet to the University of Georgia. Two meets are yet to be participated in by the Jackets. Auburn is to be met at Auburn, and several of the outstanding performers are to be entered in the Southeastern Conference meet to be held the latter part of May. Four members of the varsity were entered in the Southeastern A. A. U. meet held in Birmingham April 29th. A well-balanced team has been produced which has given a good account of itself so far this season. Charlie Galloway, of football fame, captained the team this year and has been turning in a good performance in the dashes. He has been assisted by Dean Kelley in the short distance events and relay team. Jim Davenport, John Seay, and Jimmy Busbee, all sophomores, have shown plenty of ability in the 440-yard and 880-yard events. Davenport, just running the half mile for the second time, placed third in the A. A. U. meet. In the mile run Harold Gegenheimer and Gatewood have consistently placed well up in the meets so far. Hopkins and Campbell have been going well in the two-mile event. Norris Dean, football star, has turned in fine performances in the hurdles. In the 220-yard low hurdles he broke the school record set back in 1922. Russ Cummings has shown plenty of stuff in the pole vault, and York has done well in the high jump role. The field events have been handled by Dean, Tarzan Lackey, and Peewee Williams. The feature of the season at Tech has been the brilliant performance of Perrin Walker, freshman star, formerly of G. M. A. Walker has literally burned up the track with remarkable performances in all events. He has established new conference records in the 100 and 220 runs, dashing off the century in 9.7 seconds and the 220 in 21.2. His high jump, broad jump, and shot put ability, together with his fleetness in the dashes netted him five first places in every freshman meet.

Tennis Team Shows Championship Form Playing through the season with but one loss, the Yellow Jacket net team has completed its spring campaign with the exception of one return engagement. The Tech netsters swept through six teams in a rather convincing manner, but met an unexpected defeat at the hands of a strong Florida squad by the close score of 5 to 4. The vanquished teams were Davidson, Fort Benning Officers' Club, Alabama (two matches), Tennessee, and Birmingham-Southern. A return match with the last named team is yet to be played. The Tech team journeyed to Columbus to engage the Officers' Club, and also to Alabama for the Birmingham-Southern and one of the University of Alabama matches. The team was slated to participate in the Southeastern Conference tournament, but the tourney was called off because of financial conditions of the conference schools. Despite the fact that it. once met defeat, the Jacket team was unusually strong this year, mainly due to the presence of Billy Reese, sophomore and Georgia State and Cotton States champion. Other members of the team in-

eluded Henry Crawford, Mac Jackson, Randy West, Marion Rivers, and Malcolm Keiser. Billy Glenn, Nelson Maynard, Henry Dozier, and Harold Hemrick furnished excellent reserve strength. George Griffin, regular coach, was occupied with track duties as head coach. To fill his place, the tennis squad was fortunate to secure the services of Charley Griffin. Although they did not have the opportunity to play many matches, the freshmen have several promising performers in their roster. Tom Tumlin, former Atlanta junior champion, Fernandez Morrell, Cuban star and winner of several important Mississippi Valley tournaments, and Oscar Thompson are brilliant frosh players. With the loss of only one player by graduation, Jackson, and the addition of the freshman strength, it appears that next season's squad will be blessed wuth plenty of material. There is a possibility that Billy Reese will represent Teeh in the National Intercollegiate tourney to be held the latter part of June in Philadelphia.

Tech Marathon Runner Ranks High Ray Miller, Georgia Tech marathon runner, participated in the Boston Marathon, held April 19th, and finished 36th in a field of 253. This showing is very commendable, as the field was the strongest in the history of all marathon running and the winner set a new record. The 1932 winner and many other veterans were unable to finish. There were 217 runners behind Miller, who was just running his third marathon. Miller competed in the Olympic try-outs last year, winning a medal in the preliminaries and finishing well up in the final competition.

Baseball Season Ends

Golf Team Undefeated

Playing an almost flawless brand of baseball behind the stellar pitching of Sloan Stribling, the Jacket ball team ended the season in great style by defeating the Georgia Bulldogs 9 to 3 in the final game of the series played in Atlanta. This loss placed the Bulldogs in a tie with Oglethorpe for state honors. The Tech team displayed a complete reversal of form from the bewildered and rattled crew to whom the Georgia club administered a 13 to 3 lacing the day before. Stribling allowed Georgia 9 hits, but they were well scattered except in the third inning when three runs resulted for Georgia's entire scoring of the game. Meanwhile the Jacket batters were hammering away at three Bulldog pitchers for 13 hits including a fine double and a home run by Pug Boyd. All but two of the Jackets managed to glean hits off the Georgia moundsmen. Although the 1933 baseball team at Tech was not so successful from the standpoint of winning games, the squad, composed largely of sophomores and juniors, showed much promise for future years. Coach Bobby Dodd's boys completed the season with 4 wins out of 14 starts. This is not so good as baseball scores go, but the very close game scores of the majority of defeats tell the tale of many heart-breaking losses where the opponents would just manage to eke out a one-run verdict from the Jackets. Several of the frays went to extra innings only to find the Jackets falter because of errors or bad breaks at the crucial point. One of the Oglethorpe games went to 15 innings, where the Engineers lost in spite of a home run by Tob Spradling in Tech's half of the inning.

Led by the brilliant performance of Charlie Yates, sophomore golf star, who is Georgia amateur champion and ninth ranking amateur of the United States, the Georgia Tech links team breezed through all opposition, ending the season without the loss of a match. Eurman, Fort Benning Officers' Club, Alabama, Georgia, and Richmond were all rather decisively beaten by the Jacket team. The two closest matches of the season were with the Georgia Bulldogs, the Jackets taking both by the close score of 10J to 7-J. All scoring is done according to the Nassau system. Besides Yates the team included Berrien Moore, always a leading contender in Southern golf circles, George Harris, Charlie Dannals, Frank and John Ridley. This squad is one of the best in the history of the school, and is rated as one of the outstanding groups in the country. Coach Dennison hopes that funds can be secured in order to send the team to the National Intercollegiate tourney scheduled to be held late this spring in Buffalo, N. Y., in spite of a curtailment of the spring athletic program. If sufficient funds are not raised, it is quite probable that Charlie Yates at least will participate in the big tourney.

The schedule this season included four games each with Georgia, Oglethorpe, Auburn, and Alabama. Two of the Crimson Tide games were rained out, one in Atlanta and the other in Tuscaloosa. The pitching staff was a little weak. Baker, Stribling, Everette, Carpenter, and Thwaite carried the pitching assignments with the first named two turning in the best performances. Pug Boyd ably handled the catching job, with Charlie Brady as a relief man. Hoot Gibson did fine work all season in covering first base, while Frank Whitley and Cliff Hardin alternated on the second bag. ' ' Sun Dial'' Martin showed much promise at short stop with Grossi acting as a substitute. At the hot corner Captain Bill Hogsed displayed much ability, giving the best performance of his

Gene Turner Report Letter

Commencement Plans

In spite of long silence, I shall let a brief word on personal affairs suffice in this general letter. You will remember that after our recall by the Y.M.C.A. last summer, because of failing finances, we remained in Wuchang on the chance that a call to Central China College would be confirmed by the Board of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The confirmation came, and I have been engaged in the pleasant task of teaching English Literature for the past several months. The call is for the academic year only. Compared with the year preceding, our income for the ten months' year will be greatly reduced, because we receive the salary of a married couple with no allowances for medical needs and the children's education, but such reduction in income gives us kinship with most of the world these days, and we are making ends meet. In the fall, pending our appointment, Mrs. Turner accepted a call to serve as housekeeper in the Kuling American School, where the boys are in school, and was thus enabled to share largely in the cost of school fees for our boys.

On Sunday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m., the devotional services will be held in the Pox theater. The services will be conducted by Rabbi David Marx of the Hebrew Temple, Atlanta. It is hoped that this change in time and location will afford a larger number of people the opportunity of being present. Rabbi Marx is a very noted lecturer and Tech should feel proud in securing such a man to conduct these services and in obtaining the Fox Theater as a location. The principal address and commencement exercises, that have formerly been held on the campus in front of the library building, will be held in the Rose Bowl Stadium. The address will be delivered by the Honorable Eugene Talmadge, Governor of Georgia. A speakers' stand will be installed on the field and the grand stand will be used to seat the audience. The exercises are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., Monday, June 5. Records show that there are about 375 names on the list as candidates for graduation, excluding the Evening School of Commerce, which will bring the total to about 425. On Friday, June 2, between 5:00 and 7:00 o'clock, Doctor and Mrs. Brittain will hold a reception for the seniors. To supplement this series of events the final dances will furnish the social climax to the graduates' college career. No plans have been made as yet concerning the dances, but if precedent rules they will be held Friday and Saturday, June 2 and 3, with the closing dance, the all-night social, coming on Mondav the 5.

Since I have a job, Mrs. Turner did not return to hers after Christmas, and we are now banking the home fires together. My present contract ends in July, and unless one, or two possibilities here furnish an alternative, I shall turn homeward then in the hope of finding an opening somewhere in the Y.M.C.A1., or in an international friendship promotion group, though my preference would be to continue in China, where my experience, language, and contacts can be used to advantage. Nationally, we have been tremendously heartened by recent decisions of the League of Nations which justify China's wisdom in leaving the problems of Japan's predatory invasions for its consideration. Returning to personal matters again, I want each of you, who has been concerned for us, to know that we are grateful both for your thought and the words which so many have written, and in lieu of the personal letters which twenty-five cent postage makes prohibitive in large numbers, will you not count this a personal word? I assure you as I have gone over my list, that each of you has had personal consideration. I doubt not that many of you have had your days of concern, too, and I wish I could know more intimately what has come into your life. We have recently celebrated our lunar New Year in China, so, may be, it is not too late to hope rich blessings to each of you for 1933. As ever, Sincerely yours, 'Gene Turner. P. S.: You will be interested to know that China honored President Roosevelt's inauguration by flying the American flag with her own over public buildings, shops and many homes.

Regents Modify Plans (Continued from page 70) 9. Employment of officials, teachers and employes for the various colleges, provided they agree to salary reductions. The extension work headquarters will be removed from Athens to the Tech Evening School of Commerce Building, in Atlanta, it was stated. To satisfy the 400 students in the Tech School of Commerce who protested against transferring to the University of Georgia for the remainder of their collegiate careers, the regents decided to allow the present junior class at the Tech School of Commerce to continue their courses, and graduate next year with the degree of bachelor of science in commerce. It also was decided to give the sophomores in the Tech School of Commerce credit for two years' work and the freshmen credit for one year's work towards the degree of bachelor of science from Georgia Tech. Except as to this year's senior class and junior class, the degree of bachelor of science in commerce at Georgia Tech was abolished.

â&#x20AC;˘ HERE'S A REASON BEHIND THIS THIN COCA-COLA GLASS. It's just

plain common sense. A thick glass raises the t e m p e r a t u r e of the drink w h i l e a thin one doesn't. Prove it yourself. Draw carbonated w a t e r into a thick glass and â&#x20AC;˘ into a thin one. Then t a k e the temperature of each. And you'll find that the same water is colder in the thin glass. You'll find your customers notice the difference.

A friend of CHESTERFIELD writes us of a salesman who had "something to say": "I dropped into a little tobacco shop, and when I asked for a pack of Chesterfields the man smiled and told me I" was the seventh customer without a break to ask for Chesterfields. 'Smoker after smoker,' he said, 'tells me that Chesterfields click . . . I sell five times as many Chesterfields as I did a while back.'" Yes, there's something to say about Chesterfields and it takes just six words to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;"They're mild and yet they satisfy."
