Issue 10 and Volume 90.

N. Y. Asks for Larger Budget The Fire Department of New York City asks for 1938 budget allowance of $34,386,472, or $9,343,266 more than the amount for the previous year. Installation of the three-platoon system and the city’s share of the department’s pension plan accounts for more than $8,000,000 of the increase asked.
