dr macfarlane's lec tures the course of lectures on the application of complex quanti ties to alternating currents was finished last week there were given in all five lectures dis tribited during the past two weeks they treated of a subject of vast importance to the study of mathe matical physics and were instruc tive in a great degree to all that had the pleasure of hearing them the solution of complex quanti ties as effected in pure mathe matics is equally applicable to the theory of electricity the three principal problems which occur in the study of alternating currents are treated and solved in an exactly similar manner as may also be all questions so occurring in the course of lectures the mathematical treatment of com plex quantities was first given with the methods of solution of all possible cases later was shown their adaptation to the study of the theory of alternating currents and the properties of the current represented by each part the last lectures of the series were devoted to an explanation of the solution of the most important problems occurring in the subject witli reference to their theoretical qualities the questions which arise in the study of this subject can be satisfactorily investigated only by these means hence it be comes of considerable importance that a fair knowledge of them be had by the investigator or he will shortly find himself hopelessly confounded in endeavoring to ob tain a solution to his difficulties gun club the gun club held a very suc cessful shoot at its traps on the athletic field saturday the men as a whole showed some improve ment over their previous form van duyne broke the club record at unknown angles by hitting 20 birds out of a possible 25 some of the other scores are as follows : zalinski 16 palmer 11 eckert 9 lawton 7 and dornin 12 the gun club has about decided to hold the return shoot with the university of pennsylvania gun club on the morning of the 16th of april Â« tulane's faculty will be asked by the students to exempt those men from examinations who attain a certain percentage in their class standing said percentage to be at the discretion of the faculty williams college is seriously considering the question of build ing a new athletic field with an improved track the cost will amount to about 12,000 and is expected to come from the alumni it has not materialized as yet how ever notices reexaminations  thereexamination in mechanics of cranes and locomotives will take place on wednesday march 23 at 2 r m there will be an examination in mechanics of hoisting machinery on tuesday march 22 at 2 p m there will be a rehearsal of the glee club in christmas hall on tuesday evening march 22 at 7 o'clock it is very important that every member attend hareâ€”comparative economy of steam and gas engines hillman an underground sys tem for rapidly delivering mail parcels etc in new york city knight compressed air kodjbanoff â€” mechanical con trivances used in the construction of east river tunnel luckenbach â€” the effect of nickel upon the physical proper ties of steel marshall the erection of an electric elevator for passenger service riegel the comparative effi ciency of small coal determined by special testf roper the design of an elec tric elevator for the warehouse of roper & co petersburg va scovil utilization of saucon creek as a water power starkey the temperature â€”â– entropy curve and its applica tions to engineering symington discussion of jet air turbine applied to portable differential drill waring â€” determination of power needed to drive a vessel at a given speed warren a comparison of belt and electric transmission in a textile mill wood t b.â€”design of a pul ley moulding machine wood w b.â€”utilization of saucon creek as a water power worthington are high speed pumps feasible ?
