Lives Of Four,
Washtenaw County Men In
Crash With Truck On
Highway U.S. 112
An automobile accident near Ad-
rian cost the lives of four Washtenaw
County men and severely injured two
others at 7 a.m. yesterday morning
when a truck operated by the Detroit
Motor Freight Co. collided on U.S.-
112, near Cambridge Junction, with a
1935 Chevrolet sedan occupied by six
recidents of Milan and Saline.
The dead are:
Bernard Siefker, 25 years old, Route
2, Milan, driver of the passenger car,
who died yesterday afternoon in a
Frederick Seeger, 25 years old,
Route 1, Saline, killed instantly;
Luther Graf, 24 years old, Route 1,
Saline, killed instantly;
Lawrence Rump of Milan, 28 years
old, killed instantly.
Injured in the crash were Joseph
Siefker, 32 years old, of Milan,
brother of the driver, who suffered a
skull fracture and compound frac-
ture ofsthe knee; John Foss, about
30 years old, of Milan, who suffered
a fratcured leg and shock, with pos-
sibly back injuries; and Leo King,
'35 years old, and John Stanley, 38
years old, both of Detroit, who suf-
fered multiple contusions and lac-
erations about the face and head.
Siefker and Foss were taken to the
Bixby Hospital in Adrian, while King,
driver of the truck, and Stanley, his
assistant, were held without charges
by state police in the Lenawee County
Jail at Adrian.
According to the report of the Clin-
ton branch of the state police, the
Chevroletwas proceeding west on
U.S.-112, three miles west of Cam-
bridge Junction, when it was struck
by King's eastbound truck and hurled
100 feet by the impact. The two ve-
hicles came to rest in the ditch on
the north side of the road. Accord-
ing to the report, the lighter car was
demolished and the cab of the truck,
a Ford V-8 tractor type with a load
of about 10 tons, was telescoped by
the force of the collision.
"It appears that the truck was on
the wrong side of the road," an of-
ficer of the Clinton station comment-
ed last night.
Paul E. M'ott, Lenawee County cor-
oner, late last night, had not set any
date for an inquest, and no definite
charges had been made against the
Bernard and Joseph Siefker lived
on a farm near Milan with their
widowed mother, and Seger and Graf
were neighbors near Saline. The men
were first identified by hunting and

But Not All 700,000,000
Pounds Of Steam Goes
For That Purpose
By WILLIAM E. SHACKLETON
From one December to the next it
takes some 36,000 tons of coal to heat
the University, a report released re-
cently by I. W. Truettner, mainten-
ance inspector of the buildings and
grounds department, shows.
Not all of the better than the 700,-
000,000 pounds of steam produced by
the burning of this coal is used for
heating purposes, however. Conden-
sation for hot water circulation and
production of electric current absorb
some 15 per cent of the steam.
Staggering as this volume of steam
is to the imagination, the production
of steam per unit amount of heat re-
quired is the real test of the system's
efficiency. In order to determine
this efficiency the outdo'rs tempera-
ture and volume of space to be heat-
ed must be considered in relation to
the amount of steam generated.
Such a computation for the Uni-
versity heating plant gives the weight
of coal burned in order to heat a room
of 1000 cubic feet one degree above
the outdoors temperature for one day
as 1,286 pounds. This figure is the
average obtained for the 66,000,000
cubic feet which are heated in the
In comparison with results secured
by similar central heating plants this
consumption of coal is quite efficient.
The Uniersity of Chicago in the No-
ember issue of a heating trade jour-
nal published a study closely paral-
leling the one made by Mr. Truettner
here, 'and found that their unit coal
figure is 1.208 pounds for the 1934-
1935 heating season and that their
five-year average ending with 1935
is 1.47 pounds.
Although the latest figure for the
University of Chicago seems slightly
better than the University one, it has
been obtained through the operation
of an entirely new heating plant in-
stalled five years ago; and the volume
of space heated is some 15,000,000
cubic feet less.
In addition to the heating require-
ments the buildings and grounds de-
partment boilers and turbines gener-
ate more than nine-tenths of the elec-
tricity used on the campus. This is
accomplished with comparatively lit-
tle loss of energy by passing high
pressure steam formed in the boilers
through generating turbines, and
sending the outcoming low pressure
steam into the heating tunnels for
distribution throughout the campus,
Mr. Truettner explained.
