Little notice is being paid the fact that
today is the two-hundredth anniversary
of the birth of Samuel Adams, the father
of the American Revolution.
He was born September 27; 1722, near
Bostona descendant of a Puritan immi
grant. Ycung Adams studied at the Bos
ton Latin School and entered Harvard
when he was only 14 years old. After
leaving Cambridge he began the practice
of law but was unsuccessful. He then
obtained employment in a counting house
as a clerk but this did not prove any more
successful than law. His father, a brew,
er, persuaded him to enter into a partner
hip. After two )ears in this business
Adams was forced to abandon it. Histor
ians agree that as a business man, Samuel
Adams was a failure.
In 1763 he began his political career as
a tax collector in Boston. He was one
of the first to protest against the English
s)stcm of colonial taxation.
He then was elected to the Massachu
setts legislature. It was during that crit
ical period, just preceding the Revolution,
(hat Adams became one of the most promi
nent figures in the colonies. He wrote
man) of the protests which were sent to
the British government. As a journalist,
Adams did his greatest work. He was a
regular contributor to the Boston Gazette
and his patriotic articles paved the way
for the Revolution. ,
The movement for the calling of. the
Continental Congress was started by Sam
uel, Adams and after tbe Declaration of
Independence had been drafted, his real
life work was completed.
Adams lived to see the day when all
of the thirteen independent colonies were
united by the Constitution of the United
States. He died on October 2, 1803.

Engineering for the Buyer
It is not enough that electrical apparatus
should be carefully conceived, skillfully
designed, and exactingly manufactured.
Engineering, to fulfill all its functions,
must go beyond these necessary steps and
do a still more enlightened sen-ice. It
must apply the apparatus to its uses, so
that not only in design-and construction
but in service as well, all the conditions
that must be reckoned with are fully
This function of Wcstinghouse appli
cation engineering covers many fields, and
charges itself with many responsibilities.
It is engineering that concerns itself with
almost every aspect of business, central
station, transportation, industrial, min
ing, electro-chemical, etc. It has the
buyer's interest constantly at heart.
Westinghousc Application Engineering
works with salesmen, with buyers, with
consulting engineers, with contractors,
and with seryiccfand repair men; it finds
and investigates new fields; it checks the
behavior of apparatus, old and new; it is a
bridge over which information passes
freely in both directions between West
inghouse and its thousands of clients and
Be glad that you are to live and work
in times when the spirit of service domi
nates commercial operations. The great
est change that has occurred in business
in the last few decades has been in the
minds of men. No longer need the buyer
beware for it is now known that the
seller's obligation reaches beyond the
completion of the sale; and that it is
both wise and right that every reasonable
effort be made to give the buyer full
value in both product and satisfaction.
The practise of this policy requires engi
neering of the highest type in research,'
design, manufacturing and every other
phase of Westinghouse operations, but
nowhere to greater degree than in the
field of application engineering, which is
essentially engineering for the buyer.
