Excerpt from Mechanical Engineering, Vol. 44: The Journal of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers; January to December, 1922 It has already been pointed out that the average student entering American engineering colleges is younger and less thoroughly prepared in fundamentals than the continental student. The American boy has several things in mind when he enters an engineer ing college: First and foremost, that the training will enable him to earn a better living than if he were without training and therefore he favors practical courses to pure theory; second, that athletics, fraternity life, and other college activities are almost if not actually of equal importance with instructional courses; and third, that his four years in college before entering a. Cold - blooded business world are going to be the happiest in his life and he must not fail to have' a good time during his college career.
