    Whether democracy in America can endure depends in no small measure upon the attitude of the great professional classes in general, and in particular upon the attitude and effectiveness of the engineer in his relation to government, says this well-known engineer and educator, who states further that although there is an enormously complex system of organizations of scientists and engineers in the ...

    What can and should engineers do about the social and economic problems that beset the modern world? In answering this question, Doctor Flanders says: ``We must exercise our responsibility more for the sake of society as a whole than for the sake of ourselves as individual engineers or for the private interests of the businesses with which we may be connected.'' He states further that: ``It is an ... View full abstract»

    Recognition of outstanding young American electrical engineers by Eta Kappa Nu, honorary electrical engineering society, began with the presentation of awards for 1936. The society expects its plan of annual awards to incite a fuller and broader professional development of young electrical engineers. Statistics for the men nominated for the 1936 awards are presented and discussed in this article. View full abstract»

    Unit heaters of the industrial type have been applied for external cooling of transformers and found to be especially useful as a substitute for the original water cooling system or as a supplement to the regular cooling system. Portable substations of smaller size and reduced weight were made possible by the use of these units. View full abstract»

    A harmonic generator circuit is described which produces a number of harmonics simultaneously at substantially uniform amplitudes by means of a nonlinear coil. Generators of this type have been used for the supply of carrier currents to multichannel telephone systems, for the synchronization of carrier frequencies in radio transmitters, and for frequency comparison and standardization. A simple ph... View full abstract»

    Radiation resistance, although ordinarily neglected, is actually of dominant importance in determining the selectivity factor Q and the input impedance Zs for both parallel-wire and concentric lines at high radio frequencies, and therefore materially changes the optimum design of the line, whether used as a low-loss inductive or capacitive reactance or to give high selectivity or high i...

    The vodas is used in radiotelephony to switch the voice paths rapidly to and fro, and thus prevent echoes and singing that would otherwise occur at unpredictable times. It is also used to save privacy apparatus by permitting the use of the same apparatus for both directions of transmission. The performance characteristics of the electromagnetic relays used in the vodas are very suitable in that th... View full abstract»
