Policeman Prefers Fires

Issue 12 and Volume 105.

Policeman Prefers Fires Because he would rather fight fires at less money than pound a beat, Charles O. Hoffman, a member of the Union, N. J. Police Department for more than a year switched jobs to the Fire Department, even if he stood to lose $200 a year in pay. Hoffman received permission Nov. 26 to become a fireman and he was given leave of absence without pay, starting Dec. 1, and then appointed a probationary fireman as of the same date at $3,600 a year.
