What Is an Engineer? — More Definitions

Every engineering magazine we've
picked up for the last month or so has
had its fling with some "definition of an
engineer" or of "engineering." Has an
awakening to self-consciousness sud-
denly come over the engineering pro-
fession? Must everybody leave his work
and take time to define it, or stand be-
fore the mirror and preen himself with
words? At all events, Concrete, of De-
troit, offers its apologies and tosses these
into the ring. "Take one" — or leave 'em.

An engineer is the hostler of human-
ity, who harnesses the materials and
forces of Nature to the carry-all of
progress. Or:

An engineer is humanity's defender
against Nature's destructive forces. Or:

An engineer is one who discounts to-
morrow's expenditures by today's fore-
thought.

But seriously now, how would this do?

Engineering — Application to the
world's work of a knowledge of ma-
terials and forces.



Employment for Engineers

The professional and special section
of the United States Employment Ser-
vice, formerly located at 29 S. I.a Salle
street, Chicago, has removed to new
and more extensive quarters at 63 E.
Adams street, Chicago. This section,
formerly known as the Division of En-
gineering, will enlarge its service to
include all kinds of professional and
technical men and women. During the
war this branch of employment did not-
able work in placing engineers and tech-
nical men in various branches of the
war and the Government. Now its ac-
tivities will be directed toward recon-
struction and peace needs. It will strive
to place the best man in the place
where he is most needed. No charge is
made for this service. Engineers and
professional men and women desiring
the services of the Professional .Section
are requested to write to the above ad-
dress for registration blanks.

Pratt's Shippers' Record Book

Mr. Clarence F. Pratt, president of
the Pratt Building Material Company
of San Francisco, has just published
and copyrighted a three hundred-page
record book entitled "Pratt's Labor-
Savirlg Freight Paid and Shippers' Rec-
ord Book, with Recapitulations."

There are nine specially ruled sec-
tions, as follows: "'Freight Paid and
Other Information on Carload Ship-
ments Only"; "Charges Paid on Less
than Carload, Steamship, Motor Freight,
Stage and Express"; "Claims Record
Against Railroad, Steamship, Express,
Motor Freight and Stage Companies";
"Record of Cars Placed for Loading
and Unloading"; "Recapitulation of
Freight Paid and Other Information on
Carload Shipments Only"; "Recapitula-
tion of Charges Paid on Less Than
Carload, Steamship, Express, Motor
Freight and Stage Companies"; "Freight,
Express and Other Rates Quoted by
Transportation Companies, Traffic Man-
agers, Transportation Experts and Our
Own Traffic Department"; and "Names,
Titles, Addresses of Officials of Rail-
i^oad. Steamship, Express, Motor Freight,
Stage or Other Transportation Com-
panies."

Mr. Pratt has had a great deal of ex-
perience in shipping and paying of freight
to railroads, steamship companies, etc., as
his new book indicates.

The Record Book contains many sug-
gestions from officials, together with
copies of forms used by the Standard
Oil Company, the Railroad Commission
of California, the Southern Pacific Rail-
road Company, the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe Railway Company, and a
number of transportation experts.



Gravel Company Expands

The California Building Material Com-
pany, whose gravel and sand plant at
Niles has been in successful operation
for the past eleven years, and whose
gravel and sand products have been used
exclusively on many important concrete
structures, the specifications of which
were rigid and exacting, have made the
interesting announcement that they have
acquired the famous gravel properties
and plant of the Grant Gravel Company
at Eliot, near Pleasanton.

Vyith these augmented facilities, the
California Building Material Company is
now equipped to deliver a total of 5000
tons of washed gravel and sand every
twenty-four hours.

Service and quality have been the po-
tent factors in the rapid growth of this
company, the largest producer of gravel
and sand in Central California, with main
offices located in the New Call building,
San Francisco.



Berkeley Residence

Mr. John H. Thomas, First National
Bank buildmg, Berkeley, has prepared
plans for a two-story frame residence, six
rooms with hardwood floors, to be built
at Piedmont for Mr. Matt Koski, 35 Ra-
mona avenue, Oakland. Mr. Thomas also
has prepared plans for a frame garage
for Dr. Kruse at San Diego and San Juan
streets, Berkeley.
