    Based on the belief that boys interested in engineering should have an opportunity to do practical work at the same time that they are learning the elements of mathematics and science, technical-high-school curricula, as exemplified in Mont Pleasant Technical High School, Schenectady, N. Y., have proved very successful in preparing students for work in local industries. The same courses have also ... View full abstract»

    A photoelectric block-signal system controls the traffic of men and materials which constantly flows in both directions in the 13-mile-long $50,000,000 Continental Divide Tunnel now being drilled between Grand Lake and Estes Park, Colo. Part of the Colorado-Big Thompson project of the United States Bureau of Reclamation, this tunnel will bring water from the western slope of the Continental Divide... View full abstract»

    To conserve critical materials which would be necessary to build new plants and to save the time required for construction, existing manufacturing plants are being pressed into service for war production. Many of these plants have inadequate lighting facilities. This article suggests that present lighting sources in such plants be supplemented by placing at strategic working points high-intensity ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1835 KB)

    Some of the characteristics of electricity when the frequency of alternation reaches the range of billions of cycles per second are discussed in relation to the physical pictures of basic electrical concepts, such as current flow along conductors, in tubes, and in circuits which are being evolved by engineers in the high-frequency field. As applied to high-frequency phenomena, some of these concep... View full abstract»

    Donald M. Nelson announced recently that the War Production Board has approved the principle of concentration of industry as a means of alleviating the strain placed on the civilian economy by the war effort. In approving this principle, the board also approved certain broad policies governing the way in which concentration will be made effective. View full abstract»
