Instructing School Children to Send Alarms

The interested group of school children shown in the illustration herewith are being instructed in the mysteries of sending a fire alarm by members of the fire department of Baton Rouge, La. This was done during Fire Prevention Week, according to Chief R. A. Bogan, by means of a fire alarm box mounted at the rear of a fire apparatus, and during the week these instructions were given to every one of the four thousand school children of the city. The civic organizations also furnished a speaker on fire prevention for each of the fifteen schools, and these gave ten-minute talks to the scholars.
