ALL ABOARD FOR THE I. A. F. C. CONVENTION
If you are planning to join the members of the International Association of Fire Chiefs on their never-to-be-forgotten Groat Lakes Convention Cruise and Visit to the World’s Fair, August 21-27, better make your reservations without further delay. With the time getting short and the choice accommodations on the boat going fast, it is important that you act immediately if you want to be taken care of properly. Remember you don’t have to be a member of the I.A.F.C. to take the trip. Everybody’s welcome!
For reservations or any other information about the trip write American Express Company, 65 Broadway, New York—but do it now. (If you expect to go but aren’t sure yet, a tentative reservation will be made for you.) The itinerary, rates, etc., were published in the last issue of FIRE ENGINEERING.
