Department Arm
Tasks ranging all the way from
replacing burnt out light bulbs to
planning new construction are all
included in a" day's work for the
university's plant department.
Charged with the general re-
4air, planning and maintenance of
+,e University's properties, the
-lant department is one of the
major cogs in the machinery that
1uns the University.
* * *
THE MAJOR jcb of the plant
department is to see that the
buildings and grounds are kept in
top-notch condition. The plant
service has men stationed in all
the major buldings on campus to'
see that the buildings are cleanj
and to make all necessary minor
repairs.
The grounds department has
the job of taking proper care of
the grounds during the summer
and removing all the snow and
ice during the winter months.
The building housing the plant
department is possibly one of the
most active places on campus.
Here can be found a large wood-
working shop whose job it is to
repair the countless chairs and
tables that are returned damaged
from the dorms and other build-
ings and to build and design any
necessary cabinets, bookcases and
other special equipment.
* * *
SUPPLEMENTING the wood-
working shop is the finishing de-
partment which paints all signs,
furniture and benches for the Uni-
versity.
The plant service building also
houses a sheet metal shop, a
plumbing department, a ma-
chine shop and an electrical de-
partment.
The department includes a well-
equipped repair shop in back of
the building to keep the Univer-
sity's large fleet of trucks, busses

and cars in running condition. The
shop is capable of handling all ma-
jor repairs, according to Walter
M. Roth, plant department super-
visor.
IN THE FIELD of new con-
struction, the extension division is
always kept busy. "At the - resent
time, the supervision of the con-
struction of the new South Quad
occupies a great deal of or -tiine,"
Roth said.
Also being built is a new park-
ing lot near the Hospital to:belp
alleviate the critical University
parking problem. When . com-
pleted the lot will have a eapac-
ity of about 200 cars.
"We are also installing a ,en-
tral hot-water heater to replace
the one now in use which has
proved obsolete, Roth commented.
The new system will provide hot
water for all University buildings
except East Quad addition, Uni-
versity Terrace and new South
Quad which heat their own water
because the mains are too small
to supply them from -the heating
plant.
One of the biggest arms of the
plant service is the heating plant
which last year consumed about
60,000 tons of coal in heating the
campus buildings and supplying
hot water and electricity to the
campus.
