Engineers Hear
Explanation Of
Cal. Power Plant
Emphasizing that it is unnecessary
to ruin a waterfall in order to develop
water power, Albert A. Northrup of
Stone and Webster, Inc., explained the
construction of the Caribou plant in
California to the members of the En-
gineering society Wednesday night in
the Natural Science auditorium.
William D. -Shannon, '07, was super-
intendent of the work. Sixty thousand
H. P. Is developed by a fall of water
as high as the Woolworth tower, the
Metropolitan, and the Singer build-
ings stacked on top of each other. Its
impulse wheels are the largest of
their kind in the world, and are pro-
pelled by a 13 inch stream of water
traveling 175 miles an hour. Elec-
tricity at a potential of 165,000. volts
is transmitted on a copper wire an
inch in diameter and 200 miles long
to supply the city of San Francisco.
In order to construct the plant the
parts of a locomotive had to be trans-
ported over the mountains on pack
horses, a reservoir 44 square miles in
extent had to be formed, and two

tunnel channels constructed through
the mountains.
The construction and location were
graphically shown' by means of mo-
tion pictures and colored slides
In view of the success of this lec-
ture the Engineering society, under
whose auspices it was given, expect
to have H. A. Coffin here in about two
weeks. Mr. Coffin is the chairman of
the committee on national defense.
He will present his ideas on aerial de-
fense of the future. This lecture will
be accompanied by motion pictures.
Mr. Coffin was, in a very large part,
the designer of the Liberty motor.
