    Data on generating capacity, frequency, hydroelectric power, thermal plants, transmission, and distribution in the Latin American countries are brought together in this article by an engineer who has had South American experience. Pointing out the likelihood that certain electric equipment used in Latin America will continue to be bought from the United States, he stresses the necessity of reciprocal trade as a means to harmonious relationships within the Western Hemisphere.

    Benefits derived by the engineer and by the public from the United States patent laws are surveyed here by an engineer. He discusses the opposition and the apathy of certain groups toward the American patent system and points out the importance of stimulating the interest of engineers in the attacks upon it. Although he recognizes shortcomings in the system, he urges that those of its elements “that have made the United States outstanding as an inventive nation” be retained as a foundation for a program of improvement.

    THE illumination of the auditorium in the Engineering Societies Building has been for several years the subject of study at the request of United Engineering Trustees, Inc., by Institute members specializing in lighting. Increased daytime use of film and slide projection had been hampered by daylight filtering through roller shades and the interior illumination had been pronounced obsolete, inadequate, and difficult to maintain. In an effort to improve the building facilities for their Founder Societies and associates, the board of trustees of United Engineering Trustees, Inc., undertook the modernization of this meeting hall and authorized the replacement of the false skylights with a more permanent boarding and a thoroughly modern lamp system.
