Indiana Chiefs Meet in Ft. Wayne
Many chiefs attended the annual convention of the Indiana Fire Chiefs’ Association held in Fort Wayne. The convention was addressed by Alfred Hogston, state fire marshal, William Rathburn of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, Ralph Richman and Chief J. J. O’Brien of Indianapolis.
A banquet was held at the Anthony Hotel in the evening. Wives of delegates attending were entertained by theatre parties and tours of inspection in and about the city, and visits through various industrial plants. An old fashioned picnic was held at the Elks’ country club.
The new officers of the association are Chief William Briggs, Shelbyville, president; Roy Knoblock, South Bend, first vicepresident; Harry Voshell, Indianapolis, second vice-president; Archie McCabe, Muncie, secretary, and John C. Stahlhut, Fort Wayne, treasurer. Next year the convention will be held in Michigan City.
