Dana is being featured in "Pup-
of Fate." Miss Dana takes the
of a young Italian woman whose
husband leaves her to seek his fortune
in America; makes good as a gambler;
forgets his waiting wife; marries
again; and steeps himself in the gay
life of New York. Meanwhi'e the faith-
ful first wife finds enough money to
bring her to America; meets her hus-
band who refuses to recognize her and
sets out to make her living by giving
marionette performanaces. She makes
a grand success, while failure stares
her husband in the face, together with
a bigamy "charge. In court affairs are
straightened out and the husband re-
turns to his first wife. This play, while
it puts Vio.la Dana in a part which is
just a bit heavy for her, still is an ex-
cellent entertainment. .
Our good .,ooking friend, Wallace
Reid, is scheduled at the Aicade from
Tuesday until the end of the week in
his new picture, "The Love Special."
The story is one of excitement
throughout, a regular, good old hero
tale in which Wallie, as the receiver
for a railroad company, blAsts hills
and inspection parties, saves a train

from death and steals the heart of a
millionaireess; what more could any-
one desire? There is a good deal of
humor in this picture, and all in all
it offers a pleasing evening's diver-
sion in the realm of the superman.

Thomas Meighan stars at the Ma-
jestic for the latter half of the week
in "The City of Silent Men", with Lois
Wilson playing opposite. This is a
well developed melodrama of prison
life, many scenes of which were ac-
tually laid inside of Sing Sing prison.
Meighan has the role of a country me-
chanic who goes to the big city to ob-
tain work, and while there, falls into
the clutches of a band of crooks for
whose crime he is sent to prison. After
serving part .of his term he escapes
and starts life anew out west.

is for the purpose of returning the
condensed steam in the form of water
back to the plant to be reconverted
into steam by the boilers. The con-
duits for. electricity are incased in the
concrete platform for walking which
covers a space about three feet wide
on the floor of the tunnel. ..'
The passage-way itself is circular in
form, walled with concrete, and quite
spacious despite the room occupied by
the system of piping. The temper-
ature, contrary to warnings from pes-
simistic friends and the disinterested
guide, was as yet surprisingly low,
probably kept that way for the pur-
pose of luring unsuspecting investiga-
tors into the boiling trap ahead.
Hist: The Steam
If the temperature of the tunnel
was low there were other causes that
added appreciably to the discomfort
occasioned by the strange surround-
ings. As we approached a break in
the steam pipe, where the steam was
rushing out through a hissing valve,
thoughts came 'to mind about what
would happen in case the pipe should
disarrange our plans by bursting.. A
query put to the guide as to the pos-
sibilities in case the water pipe should
likewise disintegrate added nothing at
all to my peace of mind when he re-
plied, "Well, you'd have to watch out,
as you'd probably be drowned."
Soon we reached the substation on
the campus, where a brief rest from
the nervous strain of avoiding steam
pipes was afforded and a chance given
to view from a new angle the strangely
altered bu ldings of the campus. We
now had our choice of following the
tunnel in either direction around the
campus, as at this point, the distrib-
utin center, the pipes divide and con-
tinue around on different sides, meet-
ing underneath University hall. It is
thus possible for the heating system
to concentrate the greatest amount of
heat on the most distant point during
the coldest days of winter. A simple
system of controls at the substation
enables anyone standing on the plat-
form within the building to shut off
the supply of heat of any section o
They Build Them Better
After examining the mechanism at
the station we were ready to proceed
around the campus through the old
system of tunnels that were construct-
ed at the same tine as the old powe
plant in the engineering shops. Th
difference in the construction of th
old system was at once apparent
Built of brick, "with a much smallei
circumference, and covered with a
maze of pipes, the older tunnels are
mute testimony to the advances tha
have been made in scientific heating
since their construction 25 years ago,

be a little warmer in the, section we
were'now to traverse, and advised m
to shed superfluous upper garments

boiled, I was well heartened by the
After another short rest, the guide
then led the way to the opening where
the old tunnel continued its path, down
in the rear of the Library and in the
direction of Tappan hall. Passing by
the side tunnels for the Library, the
President's home, Martha Cook dormi-
tory, and Alumni Memorial hall, we
finally reached University hall, where
the tunnel rises very nearly to the
surface. Voices of French instructors
were perfectly audible through the
thin flooring of the building, and in-
voluntarily I stopped to gloat at the
inability of my instructor to charge
me with the evidence of my last bolt.
At this point the most eerie expe-
rience of the trip occurred. For a
short distance .some break in the
'lighting system had necessitated feel-
ing our way through the darkness.
Suddenly we came to an entrance that
led toward the rear basement of Uni-
versity hall and then out through the
sloping doors that appear in back of
the building. As we walked out into
the light the horrible vision of a mass
of gigantic arms, legs, feet, and dis-
torted heads presented itself to view,
piled up in an indiscriminate heap like

completely ruined, however, when the
guide in calm tone, unworthy of the
grandeur of the subject, informed me
that these were the debilitated rem-
nants of a collection of statues form-

relegated to their magnificent ash-pbile.

had strayed so far. It was with new
