T H E STUTE The Paper.

STUTE

The fifteen numbers of Vol. I., of THB have been spread over a year of the life of Stevens Institute, which has differed very considerably from the years which preceded it. All things seem to have been on the boom, especially those things of student interest which are not¼strictlacademic. The increased devotion of the men on the teams and the greater enthusiasm of the teams' supporters, the increased activity in all the student societies, clubs and organizations, the growth in the individual of responsibility for the whole; all these are indications. And has any of this increase of interest been the fault of THESTUTE ? Perhaps to a slight extent; but really the paper itself is a product of the growth of college spirit, it is another of the indications of increased activity. The Editors realize, for instance, that with nothing doing about which to write no paper would be interesting, that without the aid and co-operation of enthusiastic 'doers" in the various doings," the publication of a paper would be most difficult, and that without that general support which has been so generously given, a paper would be impossible. With the present issue, which is the final one of the first volume, the members of the original Board of Editors cease their active interest in the management of THESTUTE. Their thanks are due to many-the students of the Institute and the School, who have helped them gather news, hustle for ads and distribute copies; to the officers of the teams, clubs and associations whose answer has always been "Sure" or "I'll try"; to themembers of the Faculty who have never been too busy to give a three-minute ew, and to t h e many, many men-students and Alumnihands have been stretched out to help not to hinder, whose comments have been constructively suggestive and not destructively critical. Unfortunately it is impossible to give a final and complete financial statement a t this time. The amounts of money due, however, more than balance the paper's debts. A complete statement, including a note as to the distribution of the surplus, will be printed in the first issue of V O ~1.1. THS STUTEwill be continued in the Fall by the men of the Class of 1906 who have been assisting in the publication of the last five 'numbers of this volunle. The policy of the paper will be continued and its standard maintained by men who are thoroughly familiar with both, so that it is with a feeling of complete confidence .that the retiring members turn over the paper to their. Successors and venture to ask &at a continuance of the suppi and encouragement of which they -hm~- he-n th(* ~ w ' k i e n t q given the men of next year's Board t C

Review of the Lacrosse Season. Our lacrosse season, soon to end, has not been quite so discouraging as was anticipated by the results of the first few games. Instead of losing heart at their first failure the men redoubled their efforts and the finish is a credit to Stevens. The season opened with a very disappointing game, our opponents being the N. Y. Lacrosse Club. Our defeat at their hands was fully covered by the splendid showing made by our men at the Crescent A. C . the following Saturday. This game gave us new life and C. C. N. Y. was easily defeated. The following Saturday we lost a heart-breaking game to Columbia. It was hard to lose, as it was the first time Columbia ever defeated us,-nevertheless let us make up our minds now concerning Columbia next year. Hopkins,-well you all know what hap, pened. In the Swarthmore game the team demonstrated what a bunch of light men full of fight and nerve could do for a short time. We lost on endurance against gymnasium trained men,that was about the size of it. When our friends from Lfehigh appeared on the field one could see that they were quite confident of winning. In this game our fellows played the real article in lacrosse and beat Lehigh "fall and plenty" for the first time in several years. I t was the finest game of the year both from our standpoint and also that of the spectator. The following Saturday Cornell died to the tune of 5-0 and merrily we dug their grave beneath Hoboken sod. We made sure it would not be 4-4 this year as it was last. To me it seems a shame that the team i n its present excellent condition could not meet Harvard who, against all that one would call "reason," cancelled the game. Squealers will be squealers and you cannot help it. At this writing we have yet two games to play, both of which we hope to win. We wish to thank our hearty supporters of the Cheering Section, of Alumni and Faculty, who so faithfully attend th games, while to those of the gentle sex who so prettily encourage our work we extend our sincere thanks and make our farewell bow of the season. Our old friend and "carpenter," Doc. Traeger is still with us and with much mending of broken parts, increases our appreciation. A wet sponge now and then is relished by all our men. I , personally, wish to thank the Scrub and 'Varsity players who have made the good results possible. Too much credit cannot be given to the Scrub, for without them we could do nothing. Three cheers for the Scrub. As everyone cheers for the 'Varsity, the men need no more com~endationexcept to say that every bit done by each man has been more than appreciated by their Captain,

The Baseball Season.

ft

Early last fall at a meeting of those interested in baseball, C. S. Cole, '07 was elected manager, and Beckman '06 captain. After Mr. Cole had his schedule well under way, he left college and Evertz '06 and Gaffney '06 took up the work. The teams booked were all in the vicinity of New York as the financial risks attached to long trips had to be avoided. By arrangement with the A. A. the team was to be known as the Stevens Baseball Club, and was to receive one-half of all the A. A. dues collected by the baseball management. augmented by one-half of the generous subscriptions by Pres. Humphreys and Dr. Sevenoak. When it is said that over eighty new members were secured, i t is easily seen that a real live interest in baseball exists at Stevens. The call for candidates brought out a big squad, which was as well tried" out as the narrow accomodations at Castle Point would permit. The team, as finally selected, has had a very s w cessful home season, all four games having been won in good style. Bqual success was n o t m e t with away from home, but that the team played fast ball is conclusively shown by the close games with Seton Hall and St. 'John's College. With every man remaining in college and a big Freshman class coming in next Pall, it is hard to see how we can fail to put out a team that will compare favorably with- any of the minor college teams. The finances were managed conservatively and the team will finish at least even in this department. No general subscription was taken up and tins is regarded as a big step forward in Institute athletics. To sum up, the team has done far better than many expected and the outlook is bright for a fine team in 1906. H. G .

Tennis. The question may be asked: has tennis really been successful? Emphatically, yes. Of the two outside matches, the team lost the first but succeeded in winning the second. The club's membership has increased to one hundred and fifty, a tournament having over fifty entries is nearing completion, the courts during the entire season have been in constant use. This is success. For some time i t has been felt that the club was not as-

Football. This seems a rather strange time to talk football, but it is the last chance before the summer vacation. Kverything seems to point to a good team next fall. But much depends upon the interest taken and the support given by the student body. The days after first game is with Rutgers on Sept. 30th,-three college o p e n s ~ a n din order to get into any kind of shape for this game, all candidates for the team must come back a week earlier than they otherwise would, that is, Sept. 20th. I t seems a good deal to ask of a fellow to knock a week off the end of his summer vacation, but every one will see that this is necessary in order to have a chance against Rutgers. They open a week earlier than we do and will be in better shape unless we come back and work hard. This is a good chance to show how much college spirit you have. Come back early and play even if you think you haven't a chance of making the 'Varsity. Play on the "Scrub" anyhow and you will help the team. The "Scrub" makes the 'Varsity, for without a good second team to practice against, the first team would have no chance at all. A number of men have already promised to turn up on time in the fall and others expect to. COMSTOCK, Capt -

Lacrosse. CORNELL GAME. The lacrosse team met and defeated the team from Cornell on Saturday, May 20, in a somewhat one-sided game. The halves were short, and this alone prevented a larger score. The game : The ball was faced off at 4.10 and almost immediately went to our attack. Coniell, however, roughed it up a bit, and both Gayley's and McKinlay's shots failed to score. Then Cornell had a chance to try our defense and found it almost impregnable, the ball seldom getting even as far as the outside home. Once again it came to our attack and we scored on Robert's long shot. Soon after this Murray put another to our credit, and before anyone realized that time was up, the whistle blew. Score: Stevens, 2; Cornell, 0. The second half was even more one-sided than the first, and all Cornell's chances at a score were spoiled by the fine defensive game played by Pinkney, Comstock, Hamilton and Demarest. Murray again scored after repeated shots by McKinlay, Davis, and Helms. Here McDonald checked Davis and they both went down, the Cornell man injuring his wrist, which had been hurt the day before in the Columbia game, so that TT* taken out. McKinlay was retired from our side. NC

Play was then stopped for a short time because of an injury to Helms. Just as time was called Roberts tied the score after a brilliant run from centre of field. The remarkable work of Kennedy at goal helped to keep down the score. As soon as play started in the second half Ross and Drinkwater shot two goals for '08.

PRATT INSTITUTE GAME. Pratt Institute was defeated by the baseball team at the Cricket Grounds on Wednesday, May 17th. The Stevens boys were rather sore over their defeat at the hands of Pratt early in the season and were determined to turn the tables if possible. This they accomplished by clever base running and timely batting, hits being made when men were on bases, which netted runs for the Stevens team. Pratt played a comparatively good game until the fifth inning when Stevens scored three runs on two hits, a base on balls, and a couple of errors. I n the eighth inning the Pratt pitcher was batted out of the box, Stevens scoring four runs. The game was characterized by clever fielding by Stevens and the batting by Mathews and Beckman.

ST. JOHNS GAME. The Stevens Institute B. B. C. met defeat at the hands of St. John's College at Loughlin Oval, Brooklyn, on May 20, by a score of 3 to 2. The pitchers were in fine form, and their fielding support was steady and at times sensational. Stevens two runs were brought in by Henes on two fine drives into right field by Lawrence. St. John's scored first in the sixth inning on a pretty steal home, and the tieing run was sent across the plate by good hitting in the eighth. A very questionable decision at first immediately after allowed the winning run to be tallied. Score by innings:

The steady grind of pitching two games a week for a month and a half proved too much for Sturgis, whose delivery so weakened that seven runs were scored. This gave the home team a lead which was impossible to overcome. The absence of Henes in the infield was keenly felt by the other players, whose confidence was shaken as a result. The timely batting of Lawrence and the base running of Mathews were features of the game. Stevens .............. 1

Correspondence. T o the Editor of The Stule: DEAR SIR-The approach of the examinations is usually - ' the signal for a little debate between a college man and himself on the probability of passing the same. Are the exams going to be fair or not ? Can I pass them creditably or not ? Can I pass them at all ?' ' But there is another subject for debate provided by examin tions, not beforehand, when we can argue dispassionately, but' when we are in their very clutches. We are sitting in the examination room, well satisfied with ourselves, and are glancing around with a contented look. There i s So-and-So gazing at the ceiling, walls, floor, and out of the windows in an agonized, struggle to remember what he never knew. We feel sorry for him. We have lots of time. Why not help him through? On reversing positions: We have looked over the questions and cannot answer four out of ten. Certain failure stares us 1q1 the face, while other exams, still to come, grin at our misery. What are we to do ? Must we flunk out after having gone so far ? Besides, the exam is not fair. How could it be if we can't?; pass it ?

There is, however, another side to college examinations. At one of the largest universities in the country-not a hundred miles from the capitol of New Jersey-the exams are conducted something like this: Upwards of three hundred men take their places wherever they wish in the examination room. There may or may not be an instructor present at the commencement of the period assigned. There is none present during the exam. If a student wishes to leave the room for recreation, he may; if he does not finish his paper before the time set, he may complete it in the privacy @f his own room, and if he is not well he may take the exam in the infirmary or in his room. I have been told by one who had studied at the institution in question that never, in the four years of his course, had he seen any man violate the confidence placed in him. And why? Because at the end of the examination paper he signed his name below this sentence: I pledge my word of honor, as a gentleman, that I neither gave nor received assistance during' this of the highest examination." The passing mark is low-50% mark, or 50% on the scale of a hundred. If such conditions obtain where men are studying for mere classical learning, how much more should they at a technical school, where men are fitting themiielves for a life's work! And what a satisfaction it is to be a man, and be treated like one ! For it is manly to refuse illicit help in the face of certain failure. It is more, it is heroic. Finally, Mr. Editor, as I feel I have tresspassed on your patience and space, if the publication of this letter should persuade even one man to look straight ahead in an examination where interest says: iLook at your neighbor's paper," or to refrain from asking help, when help alone will pass him, I am persuaded that it shall not utterly be so much waste paper and, so many spots of ink. Respectfully, A JTMIOR. 6

The Engineering Society. The last meeting- of the year was held on Friday, May 27th. Mr. Wm. Moeller spoke on "lithographing," a method of printing colored plates from impressions made on lithographic stones. Each distinct color requires a separate stone. H e showed samples of the different steps in the process, first the bare outline of the picture, then after one color had been added, then another, until finally after ten impressions from as many separate stones had been received, the picture was complete. Mr. Crisson told of the " ~ a n u f a c t u r eof Corks." He passed around pieces of the cork bark as they are received from Spain and- Portugal where the trees grow, and explained with a sketch and other samples the way in which these pieces are made into various varieties of corks. A short discussion followed each talk. The new constitution is in the hands of a printer and will be ready for distribution to members before vacation begins. .

Special

Lectures.

(1

The course of special lectures to the Seniors isproving a sue-' cess. The interruptions they cause in the Thesis work are often trying but they have usually been well compensated for by the lectures. Indeed the Seniors are to be congratulated on the calibre of the men that have been secured to speak to them. On Monday morning, May 8, Mr-George Hill, Chief Engineer of the General Building and Construction Co. of N. Y., spoke of the value to the engineer of what he called "form." Mr. Hill gave many illatrations to show how much time and nerve force can be saved by doing, in a systematic way, those things which we are called upon to do very frequently. Prof. Bristol used the rest of the morfaing in explaining the workings of the various types of Bristol recording- gauges and meters. Being the inventor of many of the ingenious devices employed in these instruments, Prof. Bristol was exceptionally well fitted to explain their operation, and made the hour very interesting-. The professor exhibited some twelve or more meters including pressure gauges of various ranges, thermometers, pyroaieters, voltmeters, ammeters, and wattmeters. H e also showed a pyrometer employing' a thermopile of tungsten-steel and pure nickel which he is now perfecting. On Thursday morning, May 11, Mr. Wat. 0. LudIow, M. E. '92, of the firm of Ludlow & Valentine, architects, delivered a talk on steel buildings in general. Besides covering many practical points in construction, Mr. Ludlow made an appeal for artistic design in those structures which the public is compelled to see day in and day out. His suggestions, with regard to the management of men, were very opportune. The rest of the morning was devoted to a talk by Mr. Philip Torchio on electrical distribution problems in New York City. Mr. Torchio is the chief distributing e n b e e r of the Hew York Edison Co.,, and spoke therefore with the highest authority. He explained in general the methods of arriving at the most econom i d use of copper and showed how Kelvin's law is applied. On Monday; morning, May 15, Mr, George Hill continued his remarks on form " and devoted much of the time to methods of so recording surveys as to facilitate checks on the work. During the remainder of the morning Mr. Chas. E. Downton conducted us through the Westinghouse works at East Pithburg by means of the stereopticon and biograph. After the lecture Mr. Downton spoke to the men who contemplated entering the Westinghouse industries as apprentices. On Thursdav morniner. Mav 18. Mr. C. T. H. wood bur^!

Junior Notes. On ~ e d n e s d aevening, ~ May 24th, forty members of the Junior class attended a lecture in the hall of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 19 West 44th St., New York; by Mr. Cbas. A. Mudge, on the recent high speed electric railway tests at Zossen, Germany. The lecture was highly instructive and interesting as it embodied the accounts of extraordinary experiments, and contained data of inestimable value in the establishment of commercial high speed lines. I n these tests 131 miles per hour were attained. Mr. Spague, the President of the New York Electrical Society, later added that, although such speeds were hardly practicable for actual service, still, for purposes of experiment it is necessary that much higher speeds be attained than are required in practice. Mr. Mudge is chief engineer of one of the two German companies conducting these tests.

On Saturday, May 27th, the Junior class guided by Prof. Ganz, journeyed to the Crocker Wheeler works at Ampere, N. J. It is needless to say that the trip was instructive, for it was a fitting supplement to the theoretical end of the electrical industry which the Juniors were trying- to master during the past year. With the exception of the casting of the large parts, every step in the manufacture of dynamo-machines, large and small, was seen. The Crocker Wheeler Co. is at present buying its castings, but a foundry of its own is now in course of construc- I T ' tion. The winding of field-coils and armatures, the punching .= and assembling of armature disks and the working of automatic lathes were observed, together with many other operations which, if all described would probably fill the whole "STUTB." The Hopkinson test of dynamos, with which the Juniors are now familiar, was seen conducted exactly as performed in our electrical laboratory. The winding-room, in which girls are employed, seemed to be, for some reason or other, of special interest. The shop as a whole is right up to date, the almost complete absence o f belts being a noteworthy feature. Every machine, whether planer, lathe, drill-press or miller, has its own motor operated by individual controllers on the multivoltage system. This trip, Prof. Ganz said, affords but a taste of what is in store for the Juniors when the time for the annual inspection trip comes around. The big trip is a virtual "course in industries" and one which nobody can afford, to miss. The writer is asked to again remind the Juniors to save their pennies. ' ' .

On May 20, the Freshman Lacrosse team travelled to Cambridge and played the Harvard Freshmen. The latter team won by the score, 3-0.

Tennis Club Match With N . Y . U. A five-man tennis team went over to Morris Heights last Saturday to play a return match with N. Y. U. The results of the previous match hardly led us to expect a victory, although it showed up some good material. I n the morning the five singles were played off, four of which were won for Stevens. Of these Hamilton's match was the only very close one, I n the afternoon Lemcke '08 had to leave on account of sickness. This broke up the Freshman doubles team, which would undoubtedly have won its match. Woolley '07 played a good game in his place, although he had never practiced with Stewart, and the match was a long, hard fought one. Manchee, N. Y. U., played by far the best game of the day. Singles-Gaffney '06, Manchee, N. Y. U. (4-6, 4-6); Hamilton '06, Perry, N. Y. U. (6-0, 2-6, 6-3); Stewart '08, Bremer, N. Y.U. (6-4, 6-3); Lemcke '08, Knapp, N. Y. U:(6-1, 6-2); H. 0 . Woolley '07, H. P. Woolley, N. Y. U., (6-4, 6-21. Doubles~Mancheeand Knapp vs. Gaffney and Hamilton (6-2, 6-3); Perry and Bremer vs. Stewart and Woolley ( 6 - 2 , 3-6, 8-6). Score-Stevens, 4; N. Y.
