session for several hours today.
It took Pror. Woodbmlge of Boston two
hours to explain his new plan of ventilating
the Si-uatc chamber.
The committee followed him an closely as
It could, butlt was hard work for the metn
Ivrs. The greater nart of ins inlt w.n
along mechanical lines.
The greatest change is, suggested for the
Seuatv chamber, as stated hi the Morning
Tune-. The galleries are to tie relieved of
the lr old-time wooden benches, and in their
pl.ic.-s go the new. loldiog opera chairs.
All tins is to be ooin- lor tne sake of ven
tilation. At pre-seiit the ventilating plant
of the1 Senate side throws 2.MW0 cubic feet
of air per minute on to the floor of the
Senate and 7,000 cubic feel into the gal
leries. MORE AIR IN GALLERIES.
This Is to be reversed: the galleries are
to get 2,000 and tlie floor 10,000 cubic
feet of fresh air per minute.
The plan also is to be extended to the
entire Senate side of the Capitol. It Is
to be tarried into the committee rooms and
corridors even of tlie terrace.
Prof. Woodbrldge'K ieie-a is not a revo

CHANGE IN IIIEG.lLLERIES.
But the most noticeable change will come
In the galleries. The chairs proposed for

Each side has 120 square inches or space
throtigti which the air pours. There are
"no currents, because the currents meet
and neutralize each otlieras they come out

Tue chairs are numbered, and at any time
