Changes in N. Y. Fire Department Commissioner John J. McElligott has promoted eight Lieutenants to the rank of Captain. Six Lieutenants of the department who, as disabled war veterans, were promoted out of their regular standing on the eligible list, were ordered demoted by a Supreme Court order ruling. Their places were ordered filled by six others on the promotion list. Firemen who received similar promotions may be asked to show whether or not they were suffering from substantial disability at the time of their promotions.
