cited for bravery in action. He is

For Furlough of 1,300
in Training
State College, Nov. 26.— Fire last
night destroyed the Pennsylvania
State . College engineering school
building und equipment. The lose 1*
estimated at $BOO,OOO.
The heat, power and light plant of
the college was put out of commls
sion so thut almost every activity
of the Institution will be at a stand
still for an indefinite period. More
than six hundred soldiers of the vo
j cational section of the Students'
I Army Training Corps are unable to
continue their work and the stu
dents of the engineering school lost
their drawing instruments and other
valuable equipment.
President Sparks and Major Baylies,
the military commandant, asked the
' War Department to furlough the 1,-
t 300 members of the S. A. T, C. for
, ten days.
Help was summoned from Tyrone
' and Bellefonte when the village was
i threatened.
| The fire started in the lumber stor
age room in the engineering depart
ment. Inadequate water pressure
made the work of the student fire
fighters and the local fire depart-,
ment ineffective.
