Professor Mather Points to Waste of Natural Resources at Faculty Club Symposium

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Engineers of today must administer the world's natural resources in the best interests of modern society, Kirtley F. Mather, professor of Geology, stated at the Faculty Club last night.

Points to Resource Waste

At a dinner of the Engineering Society, he emphasized the importance of the professional role. Poor distribution of the available natural resources has been the cause of their wasteful use, and in the future the engineer must strive to eliminate this condition.

If present trends in population and demand continue, Mather observed, we need not fear that our supply of natural resources will be exhausted for a long time to come. Substitutes have already been found for those resources which will disappear first. These resources must be utilized sensibly and efficiently, and the engineer is the man to point the way.
