CORRESPONDENCE Phone and False Alarms To the Editor: On the editorial page of your November 25th issue of FIRE ENGINEERING, we note the item, “Couldn’t Find a Coin for the ‘Phone,” which was very well handled. One of your other editorials, “Motor Cars Send in False Alarms” is particularly good. I have always maintained that the proper way to reduce false alarms was to educate the children in the schools. We have found in the past that there are always firemen’s children scattered throughout the classes, and by pointing out to the students that a false alarm may result in serious injury or death to their playmate’s father, the seriousness of a false alarm can be very effectively driven home to them. Very trulv vours, J. J. RYAN
