Dr. H. L. Donovan, president of
the University, returned Wednesday
from Princeton, N. J., where he represented the University at the
Princeton University Bicentennial
celebration. The three-da- y
marks the conclusion of
Princeton's 12 months' observance
of its 200th year.
He represented the University in
the academic procession where each
college or university representative
stood in the order of his institution's founding.
More than 400 delegates attended
the bicentennial, including representatives from 41 nations, and representatives of the government appointed by President Truman, and
the United States Senate, the House
of Representatives, and by members
of a Jew Jersey commission appointed by Walter E. Edge, former
governor of the state, and the two
houses of the legislature.
Among the events for the final
three days was a concert by the
Boston Symphony orchestra, the
laying of the cornerstone of the
Harvey S. Firestone Memorial library, and a final Bicentennial con
vocation on the front, campus at
which President Truman was among
the forty recipients of honorary degrees. He and Dr. Harold W. Dodds,
president of Princeton, spoke at the

The present phone lines will be
used for the clock and bell system.
When the system Is complete, the
change from one set of lines to the
other will be done either between
midnight and 5 a. m. or on Sunday
afternoon In order to disrupt phone
service as little as possible.
Mr. Farris said that the system
being Installed by the University is
the latest thing in dial phones. It is
the same type which will eventually
be installed by the city of Lexington, which will be .one of the first
cities to use it.
The new dial phones are as good
system as has been devised for
use in the dormitories. Mr. Farris
said. Under the new arrangement
there will be a phone for approximately every 1J students. Each student will have his own number and
bell or buzzer will ring in his
room automatically when the number is dialed. This eliminates the
delay caused while the desk clerk
rings for the person wanted.
Exchange Discontinued
The old administration building
phone exchange will be discontinued
with the coming of the dial phones.
However, Mr. Farris said an operator
will always be necessary for the University to handle incoming calls,
long distance calls, and other special
calls such as conferences. With the
dial system. President Donovan, for

instance, can tell the operator that
he wants to speak to any number of
different people on the campus. She
arranges the hook-uphone will ring at once, and he can
start his conference without any one
having to leave his office.
Of course. Mr. Farris said, no one
knows definitely when the rotary dial
system will be complete, but he hopes
to have it in operation by Septemp,

ber, 1948.

If there's a new light in the eyes
of Kernelites, it's because the light
of day has come to the offices.
Maintenance and operations have
washed the windows, waxed the floor,
so now we start with a clean slate
and office, too.
No kidding, theirs is a thankless
job. Always working, always hearing complaints, and never a word
said about the stacks of things they
do get done.
No one can imagine how many letters accumulate in their offices asking them to do the million little
things that make the University able
to function as an educational institution. They necessarily get behind
with them, but they're trying, so
let's be patient. They're doing a good
