HENRY W. SAVAGE OFFERS ,
IN POWER STATION
Engines are bing installed in the
new university power plant, and the
interior finishing is being rapidly
pushed to completion. The work is
behind time, but it is expected that
the plant will be in operation by April
1. The total cost, including buildings,
machinery, real estate, and labor, was
estimated by Superintendent of
Grounds, Marks, approximately at
$500,000, although the present expendi-
ture will be limited to about one-half
An electric railroad will connect the
Michigan Central tracks with the
storehouse and shops, behind the
homoeopathic hospital. All freight for
the university will be switched onto
these tracks, which are of standard
gauge, and will be pulled up to the
storehouse by an electric locomotive.
The roadbed will be approximately
4,050 feet in length, and will extend
over two viaducts. The contract has
already been let, and work is under
The electric current for the entire
campus will be developed at the power
house by a 500 kilowatt, direct con-
nected, 2,300 volt, alternating current
generator, which will be externally
excited. The current will be conduct-
ed through the underground tunnel
to the sub-station, between the medic
building and the gymnasium, and
there will be reduced to a voltage of
220, and converted into a direct cur-
rent. The electric railroad will be
supplied with power through a trol-
ley wire, from a rotary converter lo-
cated in the new building and with a
delivery of 550 volts direct current.
A non-condensing, cross-compound
type, Corliss steam engine will fur-
nish the motive power for the electric
generator. Steam will be supplied
from eight boilers, which will be fed
with hot water from two Cochran
heaters. The boiler feed pumps, which
force the water from the heaters into
the boilers, will be electrically driven.
Plot water for heating purposes will
be forced through the mains by cir-
culating pumps, which will be driven
by a centrifugal steam turbine.
Much of the construction work, such
as the setting up of pumps, building
of the railroad bridges, and all work
on the sub-station, is being done by
the university grounds department.
Two bungalows near the new power
house have been purchased by the
university, on account of the decrease
to the owners in valuation of the
property, and are being used 'as
homes for nurses.
FORMER KANSAS PROFESSOR
HAS CHARGE OF BIBLE WORXI
Prof. Thomas M. Iden, who is con-
ducting the work in connection with
the Ann Arbor Bible chairs, comes
here from the Kansas State Normal
school. After teaching physics and
chemistry, he became head of the de-
partment of physical sciences in 1898,
and dean of the institution in 1909.
His most important service was
done outside the class room in organ-
izing "The Upper Room" ministry, an
evangelistic campaign among the men.
By his efforts an enrolment of 650
members was attained, for the pur-
pose of Bible "study.
Dr. Iden has been accustomed to
send a Christmas letter to each of his
students. The last one contained 25
pages and reached 4,000 persons.
"How We Know God" is the general
theme of the present series given at
444 So. State street, at 6:30, on Tues-
days and Thursdays.
Union to Feature "Matinee Dance."
A "matinee dance" will be held at
the Michigan Union, Thursday after-
noon, from 2:30 to 5:30 o'clock. The
function will be conducted on the
same plan as the regular Saturday
night dances. One hundred tickets
will go on sale at the Union desk at
5:00 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.
TESTS SHOW CITY
Dr. 1V C. Vaughan, dean of the med-
ical department, said yesterday that
the water in the city mains is more
healthful than that in wells. He ex-
pressed a wish that all people in the
city would drink city water, since it
would make it easier for the medical
department to protect them from any
germs which might find their way into
the water. Some figures taken .from
analyses made during the last few
days shows that the city water con-
taines fewer germs than the average
well water. The highest number of
germs found in a well is 8,040 and the
lowest was 200. There were taps that
did not show any germs at all and the
average was three.
He said, "As long as the citizens of
Ann Arbor use the city water and
watch the bulletins for any warnings
of danger, Ann Arbor is reasonably
sure of escaping any typhoid or any
other epidemic which may trace its
origin to the water supply. But just
as long as the citizens of this town
continue to use the water from the
wells, which is clearly shown to be at
all times unfit for use, they are in
danger, and this danger is not only
confined to them but to all of the com-
munity in which they live."
Meetings in Majestic More Popular.
Attendance at the meetings held in
the Majestic theater under the aus-
pices of the Y. M. C. A. has averaged
more than 400 each Sunday evening.
Prominent speakers attracted such
large crowds that the space in New-
berry hall proved inadequate.
