GENERAL INFORMATION

The Engineering Experiment Station of the University of Flor-
ida, in cooperation with the Florida Metermen' Association, and
assisted by the various utility companies, municipalities and man-
ufacturers of electrical apparatus, will offer the fifteenth
Short Course and Conference on Electric Meters and Relays from
May 31 to June 4, 1937, inclusive. The course will be given in
the Laboratories of the Department of Electrical Engineering,
University of Florida, Gainesville.

Particular attention this year will be paid to engineering
problems confronting meter departments. -It is expected that many
such problems of an advanced engineering nature will be brought
up for discussion. On the other hand, every opportunity will be
given the less experienced metermen to secure more elementary
instruction, both along practical and theoretical lines.

With the many new developments in watthour meters, demand
meters, instruments, relays and similar equipment, as well as with
the advance in the design of modern metering installations, this
conference will enable the individuals interested to secure most
up-to-date information. The importance of this conference cannot









be overestimated, considering that upon the accuracy of metering
must depend not only the gross income of the utility companies,
but also in many cases the good will of the public at large.
Instruction will be given by lectures, demonstrations, and super-
vised problem work. Particular emphasis will, however, be placed
upon the solution of individual cases brought up at the confer-
ence.

REGISTRATION

Registration will be held in the Dynamo Laboratory of Benton
Hall. A registration fee of $5 will be charged to defray some of
the expense of the course. Meals and lodging may be had near the
campus at $1.25 per day and up. Gainesville hotels offer reason-
able rates from $1 per day up. Meals may be secured at the Uni-
versity cafeteria at reasonable prices. For additional informa-
tion concerning this course communicate with the Department of
Electrical Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida.
