Banquet for Chief Gieselman Fire Chief Edward W. Gieselman, who recently retired from the Syracuse, N. Y., Fire Department, was the guest of honor at a banquet sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, of which he has been a member nearly twenty years. Present were representatives of national and state fire fighting organizations and leading citizens of Syracuse. The climax of the evening came in the ringing of a three-three alarm. Sirens shrieked throughout the ballroom of the Hotel Syracuse and special lights simulated a raging fire. Before this background Chief Gieselman was presented with a chest of sterling silver flatwear, a gift of appreciation from his fellow citizens.
