Wm. J. Foster: There are two or three points in connection with the generator described by Mr. Behrend to which I would like to call attention. I think that in many respects it is a most remarkable machine. The efficiency as given by Mr. Behrend in the tabulation is something unusual, when we consider that it is a generator of 12,000 volts. I would like to point out how, in my opinion, the high efficiency has been attained.
