Issue 10 and Volume 90.

It Just Didn’t Give a Toot Firemen of Haledon, N. J., have a licensed bar in the basement of the firehouse. Here one can purchase beer.

Air that should have been conserved for fire use, was being used for the bar. Now the whistle is quite sharp, but the beer is a little flat.
