At Assembly Every Monday afternoon the entire student body and faculty members meet together in Lippitt Hall for the weekly assembly ex-ercises. Usually an outside speaker is secured, very often a well known individual who is master of his subject. Now, if you are not interested in what he has to say, .'why not have a little consideration for the others who are? The marked discourtesy existing at the assembly exercises cannot be tolerated at Rhode Island State College. Of course, we realize that Lippitt is not the most comfortable place)n: th(fl world,_nor -do:es the hall the best of hearing fa.eHities, yet .this is an the more reason why it is nee.essary that every student do his part towards making the assembly hour as pleasant as possible. Being polite and courteous for one hour a week is not asking too much, even of Freshmen. The visitor who addresses us on Monday afternoons gains his impression of this college thru our behavior and actions at that time. Whistling, humll_1ing tunes, reading Colleg-e Humor, or gently reposing on our neighbor's shoulder, is not giving our guest a true picture of the students at this college.. At least, we sincerely hope that it is not. At a recent exercise, Dr. Edwards was forced several times to stop speaking and wait for the restlessness to abide. Is that showing the proper respect for our president? Not long ago, a famous speaker, giving what seemed to most of the students .as an extremely interesting lecture, concluded his discourse rather abruptly. Afterwards, in speaking of the matter, he oonfided to his friends that he had not finished his speech because he noticed that some of the students were beginning to get inattentive and restless. It is doubtful whether any of the students ever heard of this incident, but, nevertheless, it is altogether too true--and perhaps there has been more than one visitor who has not said anything, but has felt the same way towards his .Kingston audience of col'lege men and women. What oan he done to stop this poor example of college spirit? Fortunately, the cause of assembly discourtesies lies with a very small_ proportion of the students, and most of this number are amongst the two lower classes. It is easily discernable that most of the restlessness comes from the back of the hall, in the Freshman .and Sophomore sections. As a mere suggl!stion, The Beacon has this to offer: Why not have the newly elected Student Council act to better conditions? Some form of punishment could he devised for chronic offenders-such as writing a 2,000word theme on "How to Behave,'' or reading Emerson's "Conduct of Life." Let's see the Student Council show some real constructive powers and start right in making our assemblies more pleasant for both the speakers and audience. This will be no easy task -it will need the active co-operation of abl the students if we expect t:0 secure the best results. Let's try it, student; let's coope1"ate and make the one hour a week of assembly exercises worth attending.

E, E. Students Hear of New Product of General Electric Co.; Miner Performs Mercury Experiment

'l'h e Coolidge tub e , a s up er- p o\~' eT X-ray produ ce r , was described by l<'re d eric M. Hamm ett, senio r e l e c tri" cal engine er , at the October 20 meeting of t h e !D. E. Society. This tub e was .d e veloped by the General El ectr ic Com p a ny, and is being used in ex per:me nts with animals to dete rmine its effects on living or ganisms. On one oc c a sio n th e rays cau s e d the h air on a rabbit's ear to chang e from gray t o white. T he radiation of the device cau s es some crystals t o g l ow as if hot, ancl makes changes in the physical appear a nc e of many substances. Mr . Hamm ett gave a history of the d eve lopment of the X-ray tube from the pl'i mitive g lobe of Crookes to it s practical app li catio n by Ro entgen. 'l'h e spe ec h was unusua lly well d elivered as a r esult of careful p r eparat!on. Thomas B. M iner perfor med an experiment with a wi·re . sliding on mercury which showed co nclusively that the lines. of force around a con du c t o r are crowd ed together and e x pamd when they can. The expan sion causes t h e wir e to slide a long t he m e rcury canal. A so c ial meeting with sm okes a n d eats is to b e held some time "in t h e sweet b ye - and - bye ." Industrial movies a r e a lso definitely promised the asso ciation and will be shown at an ea r ly date .
