As in the past all engineering departments will combine their tal ents to show the many' visitors who will be here a representative picture of the college’s engineering training. Departments which are planning to have exhibits include the fol lowing: architecture, architectural engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engi neering, industrial engineering, me chanical engineering, petroleum en gineering, aeronautical engineer ing and various units of the mil itary science department. Already signs of the coming oc casion are evident as the huge sign atop the radio tower on the Elec trical Engineering building has taken shape during the past few days. This sign which is illumi nated at night serves as a distinct ive forecast for Engineer’s Day. The Student Engineer’s Council, which sponsors the event, consists of the Architectural Society, Amer ican Institute of Chemical Engi neers, American Society of Civil Engineers, American Institute of Electrical Engineers, American So ciety of Mechanical Engineers, Pe troleum Engineering Club, Insti tute of Aeronautical Engineers and American Institute of Military En gineers.
