Conley Out—Graves In
Politics are again in full swing at Pittsburgh, Pa., and as a result, following the resignation of Mayor William McNair, the recently appointed Chief Louis J. Conley was ousted and Battalion Chief William M. Craves is again Acting Chief. Chief Graves served as head of the department during the period between the retirement of Chief Richard Lee Smith and the appointment of Chief Conley.
The appointment of Chief Conley was only announced in the previous issue of FIRE ENGINEERING. With various political factions trying to secure control, it is difficult to foretell what future changes will he made in the department.
