CZECHO-SLOVAKIAN STUDENT HERE

Dr. Krepelka Arrives from Prague for Chemical Research Work.

Dr. Harry Krepelka of Prague, Czecho-Slovakia, who was recently appointed to a Research Fellowship in Chemistry at the University, has already arrived and is engaged in the study of atomic weights under Professor Theodore W. Richards '86. This incident is of especial significance in bringing to light the fact of a foreign technical student coming to an American University to continue the specialized training which he formerly would have completed in Germany.

Dr. Krepelka is himself a chemist of considerable ability, having received his training while assistant to Professor Brauner, director of the Chemical Laboratory of the University of Prague, and acknowledged the leading chemist of Czecho-Slovakia.
