Chief Lehan Resigns at Louisville Arnold Neuenswander Appointed
The efficient chief of the Louisville, Ky., Fire Department, Timothy Lehan, has resigned, and has been retired on pension. Arnold Neuenswander, who, up to the time of his appointment, has been employed by the Ahrens-Fox Company, Cincinnati, O., has been named by the mayor as the new chief. He is a former member of the Louisville department, having served as master mechanic under the Grinstead administration. Former Chief Fillmore Tyson, who now is in charge of the fire department of the Du Pont Powder Company at Hopewell, Va., was one of those who highly recommended Mr. Neuenswander for the position of chief, he being master mechanic under Chief Tyson. He is an expert on motor equipment and is an executive of no mean ability.
Capt. Robert G. Haskins, of Hose Co. 15, has retired from active service and been granted a pension after 41 years in the Providence, R. I., fire department.
