The Stepographic Bureau will be moved to the offices in the southwest cornor of the Basketball Building. It is thought that the new system will be ready for operation by June 1. ihe mam cable comes from the point on Winslow street where the power transmission lines enter the university grounds to the Administration building. From that noint connections will be run to all the other buildings on the campus, by means of underground cables. An underground cable will also be run to the Experiment Station, tho tolo. phones of which will be controlled by the university exchange.
