"We burn approximately 45,000
tons of coal a year," Mr. Pardon
continued. "The coal is shipped to
the Michigan Centrai depot where tring
it is transferred to our own electric Today

coal basin next to the power plant.

not meet these specifications, the
entire shipment is sent back.
"From the basin the coal is hoist-
ed by a ton and a half crane and 'V
is dumped into the huge furnaces.
The coal is converted into steam
and is sent out through tunnels to
radiators in the different buildings.
Three and .one-half miles of tun-
nels, containing both high and low
pressure lines, are used.
"The radiators in each building,
and there are more than 5,000 radi-
ators now in use, are all thermo-
statically controlled by air pressure
furnished by the power plant," Mr.
Pardon asserted.
"Such a vast system requires
much repair and many men to
look after it. Since the new Worn-
en's building, Newberry hall and
five houses on Forest Avenue were
added to the system, our boilers
are working over time. Hence the
need for a new boiler," he con-
cluded.

WASHINGTON DOCUMENTS INCLUDED
IN DISPLAY AT CLEMENTS LIBRARY

" An incomparable and priceless,
collection of Washington documents
found in the recent discovery of
Clinton papers in England, are on
display and will remain indefinite-
ly at William L. Clements Library,
as part of the personal collectionl
of Mr. Clements.
Most of these papers were found
with the Clinton papers, recovered
recently after being lost since the
Revolutionary War. These docu-
ments and personal letters were in-
tercepted by the British general
and stored away with his other
papers, recently unearthed in the
cellar of his mother's home in Eng-
land. Up to that time, the Brit-
ish side of the surrender at York-
town and the reason for the splitI
Executive Position
Achieved By Peare
After serving as secretary and
treasurer of the Maqua Company,
a large Schenectady printing con-
cern, since 1926, Robert S. Peare,
'22, has just been promoted to the
presidency of the company by the
Board of Directors at their Feb-
ruary meeting, it was announced
yesterday. While approving his
new post, the board also announc-
ed that he would retain his posi-
tion as secretary-treasurer in ad-
dition.
Peare, while at the University,
won his letter in basketball and
was a member of the Student
Council. In the fall of 1922, im-
mediately after his graduation, he
was employed by the General Elec-
tric Company in their Business
training course. He is a native
of Bellmore, Ind.

of the British troops by Burgoyne
and Howe had remained a mystery..
The most interesting piece in the
display is a letter from General
Cornwallis to General Clinton an-
nouncing the surrender at York-
town and describing the battle in'
detail. Other correspondence in-
cludes that between General Wash-
ington and Nathaniel Greene, andl
several personal family letters,
written by General Washington
and Martha Washington, which1
were intercepted in the course of
the war..
The original papers telling of the
death of Washington and describ-
ing the funeral, and a biography of
the general in which first the cher-
ry tree story, are included in the
display. An expense account of the
army, written on 98 pages of foals-
cap and bound in the original skins,
is an interesting addition.
One of the more human personal
letters is a note from Washington to
his dentist requesting that he send
a scraper and pincers so that he
could clean his teeth and fix a wire
on them. His personal seal is pre-
served on the back of one of the
envelopes on display.
