Good Tools Produce Better Work — More Easily

Accurate precision tools which save valuable time and reduce the chances of spoiled work, are aids which every manufacturer and tool user seeks.

To the manufacturer, items which save time and decrease spoilage increase profits and show a saving on cost schedules. Even though he keeps machinery of the most modern type and workmen of the most skillful class, he must have good tools to increase their efficiency.

To the workman, good tools are of direct and personal advantage. However skillful the machinist, he must have accurate aids to check his various steps in producing fine work.

Brown & Sharpe Tools are reliable for checking fine machine operations quickly. Small Tool Catalogue No. 31, listing over 2300 tools, will be forwarded on request.

"World's Standard of Accuracy"



In the Realm of Carbon
by Horace G. Deming, Ph.D.
Prof. of Chemistry, University of Nebraska

Coal tar transformed into dyestuffs of a thousand hues; lemon grass oil into violet perfume; starch into rubber; sawdust into sugar; cotton linters into high explosives, automobile lacquers, or rayon.

These are a few of the achievements of organic chemistry — triumphs so spectacular as to seem almost miraculous.

"In the Realm of Carbon" tells the story of these marvelous contributions to the comforts and conveniences of life graphically, simply, and authoritatively.

SINCE 1922 The Review has been published eight times per year and the present number concludes Volume XXXII. Hereafter, there will be nine numbers per year, the extra issue being dated October. Diligent readers of that issue will note on its masthead that the magazine has a new Editor, J. Rhyne Killian, Jr., '26; to less punctilious readers, however, this change may not be perceptible, for Mr. Killian, as Managing Editor of The Review since 1927, has been responsible for the editorial content and make-up of the last three Volumes.

Mr. Killian becomes the seventh Editor Since Volume I, Number 1, dated January, 1899, made its bow on December 20, 1898, as a quarterly magazine. In format the initial number was of the so-called standard size (6 1/2" x 9 1/2"), printed on real rag paper with tipped in half tones and photogravures, all wrapped in a sombre brown covering.

To the Association of Class Secretaries, The Review owed its genesis, and the three men who planned it were: ARTHUR D. LITTLE, '85; C. FRANK ALLEN, '72; and the late JAMES P. MUNROE, '82. MRS. WILLIAM BARTON ROGERS advanced them $1,000 as a guarantee fund, they appointed ARTHUR T. HOPKINS, '97, as Editor, and The Review became an actuality.

After three numbers, Mr. Hopkins resigned; WALTER HUMPHREYS '97, now Secretary of the Corporation, was Editor of the number dated October, 1899, and, with the beginning of Volume II, Mr. Munroe undertook control. For eight years Mr. Munroe labored until, in 1908, he transferred the responsibility to ISAAC W. LITCHFIELD, '85, who served until 1917 when Robert E. Rogers became Editor. HAROLD E. LOBDELL, '17, succeeded Professor Rogers in 1922 at which time ERIC F. HODGINS, '22, became Managing Editor, being succeeded by Mr. Killian in 1927.

Besides Mr. Killian, the staff of The Review, Volume XXXIII, will include RALPH T. JOPE, '28, as Business Manager, and JOHN J. ROWLANDS as Contributing Editor. Mr. Jope has been with the magazine since 1928, and Mr. Rowlands, since 1925. Mr. Lobdell will continue with The Review as Publisher.

The Review regrets that Miss CATHERINE C. CARLSON, a member of the staff since 1926 and Editorial Associate of Volume XXXII, has resigned, but congratulates both Miss Carlson and Mr. Hodgins on their approaching marriage.
