    The engineer's last, to which he must stick if he is to make the maximum contribution to the postwar world, is defined by Retiring President Prince as working out the plans for a peacetime production of goods and services comparable to our wartime production, which would provide “not merely sustenance and military protection, but comfort and security for our entire population.” View full abstract»

    Benjamin Garver Lamme is a great engineer. The present tense is used with intention, because, whatever one's belief in immortality, there can be no doubt that his spirit lives with us in the bequest of his substance and the inspiration of his mind. So well expressed by the Lamme Medalist of 1938, Marion A. Savage, who said, “All engineers who have to design electrical machinery honor the na... View full abstract»

    I wish to express my appreciation of the honor that has been conferred on me by the Institute in awarding me the Lamme Medal for 1941. Naturally, I had been somewhat aware of my contributions to the industry, but I had not realized that they might be of special interest to the Institute. In the past, the awarding of the medal has always suggested achievement and progress to me. Now, I have a more ... View full abstract»

    The engineering genius that has given the United States the world's highest living standards in peacetime can put into war materials the speed factor needed to overcome the inefficiency that is part of the price of democracy, according to this engineering educator, who believes our production experts will convert “too little and too late” into “enough and on time.” The ...

    The present demand for trained individuals with good health and surplus energy has placed a new and greater emphasis on all phases of education. In this changed world, we are recognizing the need for reformulating the objectives of our educational system, for considering such departures as, for example, the provision of programs based on the aptitudes of the individual student and terminating when...

    Brazil is one of the richest countries in the world in potential hydraulic or water power. It has been estimated that the potential hydraulic power of Brazil is over 14,000,000 kw, and only about 739,000 has been utilized. According to statistics compiled by the World Power Conference, Brazil ranks fourth in hydraulic power. Russia ranks first, with 58,000,000 kw, the United States is second with ...

    Any lingering questions as to the value of or interest in AIEE convention programs and the opportunities offered thereby for the first-hand discussion of wartime engineering problems should be dissipated conclusively by the results of the recent summer convention in Chicago. As at the recent Northeastern District meeting at Schenectady, N. Y., the attendance set records for recent years, and parti... View full abstract»
