- THE OWL SUMMER BULLETIN ‘
ANOTHER COLLEGE YEAR
Old Villanova is about to begin its 86th scholaste years
"Registration for Freshman will -be on September 26th,- for
Upper Classmen on September 27th. Classes will be resumed on
September 28th." Thus reads the official notice which has been
gent to all Villanova Students.
The prospects for the Engineering School look promising.
of course it is too early to give exact Freshman registration,
but everything points to an increase over the past year. Many
students report that they are bringing back with them, new
candidates for Engineering honors. Some former students are
due to return. In particular, we noted the names of Ensign T.
Slayton, James O'Hara, Jos. O'Donnell, Vincent King and

THE ENGINEERING FUND
Subscriptions to the Engineering Fund lagged somewhat during
the past month. Nevertheléss, over 1/S5th of the total amount
pledged by the student Engineers has already been paid in, with
every indication that the total subscriptions will exceed the-
amount originally pledged. During the past month subscriptions
were received from students who had made no pledges, while others
sent in amounts in excess of their original pledges. Alumni
pledges have been very slow in coming in. Now that the vacation
season is over, we expect to hear from every loyal alumnus.
The existence of the Engineering Fund, even in its present
inciplent stage, enabled the Engineering Department to take
advantage of a very good bargain in Drafting Room equipment |
from Stone & Webster at Conowingo.
\ The Dean was advised that this equipment was available and ae
Father Stanford and Prof. Sweeney too look it over and to sel- TE
ect what was wanted. A few days later, Father Stanford and Prof. Te
Sweeney acconpnnied by Pat. Caulfield,'29 and John Driscoll, !29
went to Conowingo with two trucks to bring the newly purchased
équipmeht to Villanova. Enough Drafting tables and accessories
Were obtained to equip the Senior Drafting Room and a good part
of the Junion Drafting Room. ;
If the members of our Engineering Alumni could realize the
imediate practical assistance rendered at this time by all
contributions to The Engineering Fund, every incoming mail ©
would bring its quota of checks and pledges to the Fund. _
We expect to publish a complete list of student contributors
to the Fund in the October OWL. We predict that it will be an
inspiration to our Alumni.
