ENGINEERING THE NEW AGE

The Science Editor of the N.Y. Herald-Tribune surveys (rather loosely at times) some of the aspects and prospects of the ""new age of engineering"" he hopes will be inaugurated for the greater good of the greater number of people. Atomic energy, and the changes it may bring to climate, produce, etc; rivers and river valley control; the rebuilding and re-planning of cities; nuclear energy power plants (empowered by the energy from the nucleus of the atom); and throughout, there are historical references to past civilizations, the changing patterns brought about by new invention. In conclusion he argues for a somewhat more formal organization of engineering...The market will be on the scientific fringe, semi-professional rather than popular.
