Make overhead line repairs permanent by splicing in FIBREX Tree Wire. [[image]] Pick out the week spots on your overhead lines - places where temporary repairs have been made or where insulations has worn down. Then make sure your repairs permanent by splicing FIBREX Tree Wire into the line. FIBREX is non-metallic and non-inductive. It will not rot. It cannot rust. It prevents arcing, short circuits and leakage. It is the best protection against abrasion. Every distribution engineer should have a piece of FIBREX Tree Wire. A short piece with the full information will be sent promptly upon request. SIMPLEX WIRE & CABLE CO MANUFACTURERS 201 DEVONSHIRE ST., BOSTON BRANCH SALES OFFICES CHICAGO, 564 W.

Magruder Passano is of that choice of fortunate group, the Carrollites, the members of which have discovered solutions for most of life's insoluble problems clearly set forth in "Alice in Wonderland." It is typical, therefore, that he should begin a paper on such a perplexing subject as Time by referring to the illuminating discourse on that subject which took place at the Mad Tea Party. It was then, you will remember, that hte Mad hatter removed time from the neuter gender and definitely placed it in the masculine. But the subject of time, as Professor Passano remarks in his paper, is not one to be treated frivolously, and he demonstrates that any definition of it must satisfy both the mathematicians the the philosophers. [[symbol]] By way of parenthesis, we raise the question as to what the Mad Hatter would think of Einstein's latest contention that space has become carnivorous, devouring matter, and that time is after all not so important, be it an it or a he. Charles D. Childs is manager for the Print Department of Goodspeed's Book Shop and, therefore, pretty thoroughly acquainted with the amenities of print collecting as well as prints themselves. In response to a letter from The Review earnestly soliciting biographical information, he wrote: "Various articles of mine mostly short, have been published the Print Connoiseur, American Forests and Forest Life, Boston Transcript, and so on, and a monograph, 'Samuel Chamberlain ['18]: Etcher and Lithographer' published by Goodspeed's Book Shop. As a hobby, I have amused myself with etching and drypoint and have published a few small plates quite recently. I was born in August, 1905, in Needham, Mass., and hope that no obituary notice will be posted for some time to come." It is particularly appropriate that Mr. Childs be introduced to Review readers because of the assistance and advice he has lent the Editors during the last several years in the selection of subjects for the cover of the magazine. Earle Buckingham, who presents the results of some of his research at the Institute, has had a varied career int eh field of mechanical engineering, beginning at the United States Naval Academy in 1906. Since 1925, he has been Associate Professor of Engineering Standards and Measurements at the Institute. He has the author of "Principles of Interchangeable Manufacturing," 1921 and "Involute Spur Gears," 1922. Professor Robert E. Rogers needs no introduction anywhere in the world. Institute Alumni will be expecting his article on Page 441, for he has unfailingly lent a hand in reporting Alumni reunions and assemblies. [symbol] Hans Muller, who prepared the review on Page 444 is one of the Institute's young physicists. He was born in 1900 at Amriswil, Switzerland, and received a diploma in engineering from the Technische Hochschule of Zurich in 1923, and the degree of D. Sc. in 1928. At the present time he is Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics. (Concluded on page 420)
