This image scanned from page 2 (bound at back of volume) of the 1936 Arbutus yearbook.

The caption reads, in full: "Pictured above are two of the stokers in the Indiana University Power House, under 530 HP Vogt Boilers."

The image is a part of an advertisement for the Illinois Stoker Co. which also reads, in part: "In 1928 two Illinois Forced Draft Stokers were installed at Indiana University...These stokers were installed to burn low grade, high ash, Indiana coal. A third Illinois stoker was added in 1931, and now a fourth Illinois Stoker under a 675 HP boiler is being installed..."
