Issue 8 and Volume 33.

It is not test early for the members to do all in their power to make the convention a success. Would it not he awell if fire chiefs, and for that matter all firemen, received a few simple lessons in elementary chemistry as well as in “first aid?” If Chief Foley had hut known that ammonia or ordinary plaster of Paris, or even common kalsotninc would have neutralised the fumes of the nitric acid, he and those who died with him might have been alive today.
