    Multiplex Telegraphy. “I had constructed two ordinary direct current motors of the simplest form, an ordinary two pole field and single coil armature conveniently arranged for use as either direct or alternating current machines. The armature circuits were connected at one end to an ordinary two-part commutator and at the other to two insulated ring contacts. They are shown by a simple diag... View full abstract»

    Education for Living. The educational fraternity hears many complaints about the inability of engineers to write, read, and spell. It is therefore refreshing to learn from a teacher of psychology, in a letter to the editor of Science, that students in the social sciences have parallel difficulties, demonstrated by a spelling such as “Cornepincus,” probably translatable freely as Cope...
