The Electrical Maintenance Department is par-ticularly eager to assist all stud-

students pertaining to individual needs. The above rules are necessary to limit the
use of electrical appliances, and to prohibit the use of large electrical apparatus, such
as heaters, etc. The wiring of the dormitories is not designed for excessive loads,
and fuses will interrupt circuits when too many devices are applied on a circuit.
To prevent inconvenience to yourself and to your fellow students these rules
have been found necessary.
