It was followed by one on “The Teaching of Elementary Mechanics,” by William S. Franklin, Professor of Physics, and by Barry MacNutt, Assistant Professor of Physics, Lehigh University. They were read by Professor Franklin. The papers were discussed by Professors Merriman, Cooley, W. Kent, Williston, Maurer, Haupt, A.

Haupt, A. N. Talbot, Howe, Chatburn, Emory, F. C. Caldwell, Benjamin, Miller, C. R. Adams, Jr., C. M. Woodward and Brackett. Professor Franklin closed the discussion.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON, 4 O'CLOCK. The members of the Society adjourned the afternoon session at four o'clock to attend a reception tendered to them and their ladies by the Ladies of the Faculty of the Case School of Applied Science. The reception was held in the library of the Physical Laboratory. It was a delightful occasion, charmingly informal and was enjoyed by all. The only disappointment was that so few of the visiting members were accompanied by their wives. The hearty and united hospitality of the ladies of the faculty of Case School is worthy of emulation. It is felt that to know a member in the sessions of the meeting may be to know something of his mental powers, but to know the whole man, one must also meet him socially.

EVENING SESSION, 7 O'CLOCK. In the evening the Trustees and Faculty of the Case School, not to be outdone by the ladies, entertained the members of the Society at dinner at the University Club.

Both of the social functions tendered the visitors are worthy of commendation, as examples. President Howe acted as toastmaster. Post-prandial remarks were made by the Hon. J. M. Henderson, Esq., President of the Board of Trustees, and by Mr. Worcester R. Warner, member of the Board of Trustees of the Case School.

President Jackson delivered the presidential address, entitled “The Relation of the Engineering Schools to Polytechnic Industrial Education.” It was discussed by Professors Henry T. Eddy, C. M. Woodward, Williston, Franklin, Goetze, White, Turneaure and Mr. Warner. President Jackson closed the discussion.
