The Harvard Engineers' Alumni Association of New York City held its first annual dinner Saturday evening at the New York Harvard Club. G. S. Rice '70 acted as toastmaster and among the speakers was President Eliot. He spoke of the prominent part played by engineering in the development of the world and the responsibilities of an engineer. The engineer's profession is one of work, he said, and after all, to put forth one's utmost efforts in anything gives most durable satisfaction; and to put forth one's utmost is the end and object of democracy and public liberty.
It was announced that the Engineering Society will establish a fund to aid worthy students in engineering at Harvard University who take the prescribed summer work, it being the purpose to help such men as would otherwise have to spend the summer in earning money to keep them in College for the next year.
