Because of the shortage of coal, and
the consequent necessity for con
servation of fuel, the executive office
of New York University are closed
during the holidays. It has always
been the custom to close the various
schools of the university for the
Christmas recess, but thjs is the first
time the executive offices have been
closed.
Dean Charles H. Snow of the School
of Applied Science, University
Heights, has requested the faculty
and the students to co-operate in re
lieving the situation at the Heights.
He first recommends that professors
see that the steam in lecture rooms
and laboratories be turned off and
windows raised slightly when the
temperature becomes too high, in
stead of leaving the steam on and
opening the windows wide.
