Strong High School Basket Hall
Team* to Contest on W. S. C,
Floor for Handsome Cup
Definite arrangements have Men
made by Graduate Manager Mender
for an interscholastic basket ball
tournament between six of the fastest
quintets in the eastern part of the
state, to be held in the College gym
nasium on March ? and 8. This will
take the place of the hitherto an
nual lnterscholastic track and field
meet, by which the College has
brought the high school athletes
here. Inclement weather and con
sequent financial loss was the chief
reason for the substitution, and
while the tournament will bring
fewer men, it has the very Import
ant advantage of not creating a de
The teams that have been invited
so far are Genesee, Wallace, Lewis
and Clark and North Central of Spo
kane, and Pullman. These are all
fast teams and have so far put up
good Bhowlngs. In case other teams
should show themselves qualified
for championship honors they will
also be invited. It is the plan to
make this the final winnowing of
the best teams in the Inland Empire.
A huge silver loving cup of a
value approximating $50 will be
given as a prize lor the winning
teams and may be kept permanently
by the team winning it three years
in succession. Coach Bohler will of
ficiate at all the games, assisted by
some other man to be chosen later.
The first three games will be
played between pairs of teams on
Friday afternoon, March 7, and the
winners will draw lots for the next
two games, one to be played Satur
day afternoon and the final one Sat
While here the visiting men will
be accommodated at the various fra
ternity houses, most of which have
already promised to accommodate
several. This arrangement will
make the tournament cost very lit
tle to the College and yet it will be
a very good advertisement.
Recent Issue of "Power" Contains
Article by Prof, Carpenter
A very interesting article by Prof.
H. V. Carpenter, on the subject of
"The Flow of Steam Through Pipes,"
appeared in the December 17th issue
of "Power." It explains the relation
between pine size, velocity of flow,
quantity of steam discharged, boiler
pressure and pressure lost per hun
dred feet of pipe.
, This discussion is supplemented by
a couple of charts by means of which
a person may solve almost instantly
for any one of the above quantities
when the other three are known or
assured. Previous to the publication
of these charts the solution of such
problems has been a tedious and la
borious task, and quite subject to
These charts afford an opportunity
for correct solution in the future and
also a means of checking up on all
The editors of "Power" have re
cetly asked Prof. Carpenter to make.
another set of charts similar to the
one described, but of greater range,
to be used in the design of pipes for
steam engine condensers.
It is interesting to note also that
a recent text book on "Power Plant
Designs" completely Ignores that
phase of pipe line layout which deals
with the selection of properly sized
pipes for the various auxiliaries used
in the plant.
Prof. Carpenter has attacked the
problem of telephone and electrical
transmission line erection In the
same practical manner. He first de
velops simple formulae showing rela
tions between the size of wire or ca
ble, the sag, tension and span in
copper and aluminum transmission
lines, and represents the solution of
these relations by a logarithmic
chart. In using the chart, the erect
ing engineer must make first a pre
liminary calculation for the. neces
sary sag, taking into account the
maximum probable wind velocity to
be encountered (85 miles per hour,
in Pullman), the thickness of sleet
liable to form on the cable, and the
probable minimum temperature. He
then enters the chart with the proper
value of sag. span, and _fse of wire.
and determines the maximum allow
able pull that can he exerted upon
the cable before it is secured to the
pole, in order that it will not break
under the worst condition of weather.
Failure in the past of the construc
tion crew to take proper procedure
at the time of erection Is responsible
for most of the Interruptions in our
telephone and electric lighting serv
ice. (Reviewed from "Electrical
World," July 18, 1912.)

The fine showing made by the
