EUREKA - It’s the end of the fall semester at Eureka College and time for a little fun. Members of the physics club contrived a complicated ‘machine’ whose aim was to put a ping pong ball into a wastebasket. Wikipedia informs us that “A Rube Goldberg machine, contraption, invention, device, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970).”  The contraption was set up on the unused stage of Pritchard Hall.  Staff photo.
