Henry D. Loring '07 presided in his usual efficient manner.
   The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted in the selection of Stuart R. Miller '07 for president, John D. Cochrane, Jr. '23, for Vice-President, and William V. Schmiedeke '12, for Secretary.
   The only other business of the evening was the report of the Scholarship Fund Committee which reported the status of the funs and also announced that the Club had a new candidate for the coming year. The Scholarship Committee was instructed to proceed with collections for this purpose which is known as the Richard Warren Proctor Scholarship Fund.
   Following the dinner, the gaming instinct was given free play and as the spirit moved, it was bowling, billiards, bridge, stud, or kibitzer. A good time was had by all. ---WILLIAM V. SCHMIEDEKE '12, Secretary, The Penker Construction Company, 1030 Summer Street, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Technology Club of Central Ohio
   After a year of work our Club has finally established a scholarship at the Institute in Aeronautical Engineering. The tuition money has been raised among our forty members and a committee is now working on the selection of a candidate who must be a resident of the area covered by this Club. He must be a graduate whose scholastic work is equivalent to the requirements of this course and just have a very high standing. We have been getting some favorable publicity for the Institute in the local newspapers through the announcement of this scholarship and there are several applicants for it.
   We are continuing our luncheons on the second Wednesday of each month in the Tea Room at the Lazarus Store. ---EDWIN M. WOODWARD '17, Secretary, 1272 Hope Avenue, Columbus, Ohio.
