Boys Work Out Department Sentence
Two boys of Kalamazoo, Mich., were given assignments which will occupy their Saturday holidays until such time as the Fire Department believes they have been impressed with the seriousness of turning in false alarms.
The boys were caught by Assistant Chief Frank Van Atta after turning in a false alarm. They were given the alternative of working in the central fire station or being taken to court for trial. They chose to work out their sentence which consists of mopping floors, cleaning grease pans, polishing nickel and brass work and washing fire apparatus.
