SAVING BY IOWA COAL REPORTED University Made $12,500 by Use of State Product, Professor Says. IOWA CITY, March 11.--A saving of approximately $12,500 a year from the exclusive use of Iowa con! for heat and power at Iowa university-wag reported here by H: L. ;Olin, professor of. chemical- engineering. More than 5100,000 is spent by the school for coal each year. . ;Smce last August native coal has been used exclusively at the university for the first time. The use of Iowa coal was made possible, Pro r fess'or Olin said, thru the building : of a new $1,000,000 -heating' plant in 1927 .and favorable contracts with Iowa operators. Iowa will shortly produce three- :ourths instead, of one-fourln of its ·jwri coal, Professor Olin toot. -H'.'.jointed but that there ia sufficient ;6al and,mining equipment in .the itato to produce 12,000.000 tons * year. Instead only 4,000,000 tons are mined and the remainder or the 16,000,000 tons " consumed in the state, is, shipped in. Professor .Olio found ofi' a calculation, made on coals ; delivered , to most Iowa consuming points when the freight is included in the value of the coai. that an Iowa coal is the best buy .and most, economical fuel that can be generally used .in the slate. The solution of the problem, Professor ' Olin thinks, is in proper preparation of coal at Iowa mines, the installation of equipment for accommodation.of high volatile, loiir fusing ash coals of Iowa rather than harder, coals of the east ami in proper firing. Before the-building of the new heating plant, the MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE coal was burned in.the old heating quarters,' equipped w/th underfeed stokers and low set arches, Professor Olin said. It was impossible to use Iowa coal in' these furnaces' because of inadequate grate spaei' ^nd insufficient room for' combus tipn under the low arches. The new plant was designed ant. built by the ; university ^especlallj for the use of Iowa coal and the ·furnaces were equipped with high ifches and chain grate stokers 01 modern design tq give proper room for combustion and distribution ot coal. .
