Christy Resigns as Chief of Pueblo Samuel P. Christy, Chief of the Fire Department of Pueblo, Col., for twenty-one years and a member of the department for twenty-seven years, tendered his resignation and made application for his pension. This action came as a complete surprise to the City Council. Chief Christy is sixty-four years old. Lou Willis, Assistant Chief for the past ten years, has been named head of the department for a thirty-day period. However, belief is current that the appointment will hold until the civil service examinations are held in August. Watertown, Mass., has awarded the Gamewell Company a contract to install a new central office signal system of the 3-fold pattern, manually operated. The cost will be $54,000.
