MANY CHIEFS PLAN TO ATTEND NEW ENGLAND CONVENTION
George F. Cobb Reports Many Reservations Received—Exhibits to be Displayed in Armory Short Distance From Hotel Taft
RESERVATIONS for hotel accommodations and exhibit space at the Seventh Annual Convention of the New England Association of Fire Chiefs are coming in very rapidly according to reports by George F. Cobb, 774 Albany Street, Boston, Mass., traffic manager, who is in charge of hotel arrangements; and Chief John S. Pachl, of the Annex Fire Department, New Haven, Conn., chairman of the Exhibit Committee.
The convention headquarters will be in the Hotel Taft where a flat rate has been established for convention guests of $4.50 per day including breakfast.
The exhibit of apparatus and accessories will be in the Second Regiment Armory on Meadow Street. This is only a short walk from the hotel and Chief Lawrence E. Reif, of New Haven, has arranged to have the route well placarded with signs and directing arrows.
The dates of the convention are June 25, 26, and 27 and as usual at the New England conventions, the registration will begin the night before the first regular business session.
P. Hildreth Parker, George W. Austin, and Herbert K. Pratt, all of the Box 52 Association, of Boston, will be the registrars as in previous years.
An interesting and varied program has been arranged. There will be an exhibition drill by the Department of Fire Service,
New Haven, and a shore dinner at Savin Rock. The ladies will be taken on a tour of Yale University and given a theatre party, also motor trips to points of historic interest.
