Figures Are His Hobby
Earle L. Robinson, of Des Moines, Ia., is a fire buff whose hobby is not fires but figures. In an effort to secure new apparatus for the department, he has bombarded city officials with elaborate charts, tables and statistics to prove the need for such an improvement.
He has figured out that the Fire Department is the only organization in which the less work they do, the more profit they show.
Parry, N. J., has received a PirschFord pumper, and New Market, N. J., a Pirsch-Dodge 500-gallon pumper. The apparatus was sold by the New Jersey Fire Equipment Company, Dunnellen, the New Jersey representatives of Peter Pirsch and Sons Co.
