Attention of the members of the International Association of Fire Engineers is called to the fact that railroad fares to the convention at New Orleans will this year be arranged on what is known as the round trip identification plan basis fare and one-half for the round trip which will be paid at the time ticket is purchased, instead of buying a ticket one way and then buying a return ticket at the convention city at half rate as has been done in previous years.
A certificate will be mailed to each member by the secretary and ibis certificate must be presented to the ticket agent where ticket is purchased and signed by the person presenting the certificate in pen and ink in the space provided for that purpose. One certificate will cover a member and his family. If any more certificates are required or anyone going to the convention does not receive a certificate from the secretary, they may be obtained by writing to George F. Cobb, traffic manager, 774 Albany Street, Boston.
