Metropolitan Fire Associates Dine

The annual dinner of the Metropolitan Fire Associates was held in the University Club in Boston, Mass., on the evening of March 25. The speakers were Chief Heury A. Fox, of the Boston Fire Department; State Fire Marshal Stephen C. Garrity, of Massachusetts; Percy C. Charnock, of the New England Insurance Exchange; Ex-Fire Commissioner Theodore A. Glynn, of Boston, who represented Governor James M. Curley; and William Tripp, Junior Cadet Engineer of the Ward Liner “Morro Castle,” when that vessel burned off the New Jersey coast last September. President John Good, of the Fire Associates, directed the proceedings.

The salvage car of the Mason City, Ia., Fire Department, described on page 105 of the March, 1935, issue of FIRE ENGINEERING, was built by the General Fire Truck Corporation, St. Louis, Mo.

Memphis, Tenn., has reduced its fire losses to the lowest since 1912. Last year was Chief Irky Klinke’s first year as head of the department. The reduction in fire loss was also accompanied by a reduction in the number of fires, and the number of fire calls.
