TilH UNIVERSITY LIGHT AND
Tlii-t plant while under the charge
of the engineering department serves
Pie entire I'niverslty or as much of It
us its ability permits. The plant was
established about ten years ago, and
has been but little improved, and not
Increased at all during this period
while thejsrowth of the I'niverslty has
been phenomenal. The result Is that
Hie plant is entirely inadequate to
meet the legitimate demands made
upon it. and as a consequence a con
tract has recently been made with the
( ity lighting company for current re
quired in lighting the Library of the
VnfvefsUy. Noi more Eh all Half the
looms in the several buildings are now
lighted by electricity. Power Is fur
nished for ventilation in a few in
Htances. but the demands for ..power
come from neurly all the departments
and are but partially met.
A new plant designed under the con
ditions of eftlciency now possible ow
iu;; to the advance In electrical knowl
edge since the purchase of the present
plant would secure much greater econ
omy In the distribution of power and
light, and new apparatus would render
the service much more satisfactory.
The plant is not to he considered of
special benefit to the engineering de
partments except as nn illustration of
engineering practice, but should fur
nish power to those departments un
der conditions precisely similar to
those nuulo for dther departments.

Something About Presidents.
There is no subject In which the
average American takes a deeper Inter
est thun that of the personality of the
presidents. The chief magistrate is
the symbol of national unity. He Is
the representative .of-every ituttiT wom
an and child. He has one or more
points of contact with all citizens. A
majority of them have seen him or tak
en him by the hand, practlcully all
have read of him, have looked on his
picture and take pride in his achieve
ments In his personality he epitomizes
the national life. He Is placed before
the world as the embodiment of Amer
ican ideals and aspirations.
Despite the fact that we are a peace
loving people, a majority of our pres
idents have been soldiers. All of these
have come from the army, notwith
standing our long llBt of naval heroes.
We have never allowed a sailor to ru
the ship of state.
Of the twenty-live, only twenty have
been elected by the people, the other
live being vice presidents who suc
ceeded to the office.
When the present term is completed
the period will have oxtended over
11G years, a little over four and a half
years to each nlnn.

Of these, one from Virginia. Tyler,
and three from New York. Fillmore.
Arthur and Roosevelt, were vice prps
ideats who became presidents through
the death of their chiefs. Next to
these states come Ohio with four. Ten
nessee with three, one of them, John
son, a vice president; Illinois two,
Massachusetts two and New Hamp
shire. Pennsylvania. Louisiana u"ud
Indiana one each.
Nine of the number came from
south of Mason and Dixon's line and
sixteen from the north. All of the
southerners held office before tho civil
war except Johnson. None oi our
chief executives have como from west
of the Mississippi river.
In politics, two were federalists, five
were whlgs, if John Qulncy Adams can
be so classed; nine were democrats
and nine were republicans.
Only seven held office eight years
Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Mon
roe. Jackson, Grant and Cleveland.
Five died or were killed In office, two
of these, Lincoln and McKlnley, being
on their second terms.
The presidents have been long on
neither whiskers nor names. Only
eight of them Indulged In hirsute con
cealment. Of these, Lincoln went
smooth-faced nearly all of his life,
hut had a partial beard while presi
dent, Grant, Hayes, Garfield and Har
rison had full heardo. The courtly
Arthur supported a side whisker,
while Clevelund and Roosevelt are
content with a mustache. In this con
nection it Is worthy of note that hard
ly any of the number have been bald.
