Maintaining a Custom For a number of years the May issue of FIRE ENGINEERING has been devoted to subjects oriented to industrial fire prevention and protection. The editors will continue the practice this year but with the emphasis changed slightly to make the issue of greater interest to all readers. Most articles scheduled deal with some particular hazardous phase of American industry. However, each has been written in such a manner that the information will be of useful importance to paid or volunteer municipal and industrial fire fighting specialists. The editors believe the forthcoming issue will be well worth their efforts. We look forward to it with interest and we are confident you will be well pleased with it.
