N. E. Chiefs Plan Havana Trip
George F. Cobb, Traffic Manager for the New England Association of Fire Chiefs, reports that much interest is being shown in the trip to Havana, Cuba, to attend the convention of the International Association of Fire Chiefs in October. A questionnaire has been sent out and replies received indicated that three-fourths of the members wished to make the trip by steamer all the way and one-fourth preferred steamer and train. Under these circumstances plans are being made for an all steamer trip.
The association has at the present time an option on one of the finest steamships sailing out of Boston for exclusive use of the chiefs and their guests.
If 150 or more Chiefs sign up for the trip it will be possible to secure the steamer and the entire round trip cost including hotel and meals in Havana will not exceed ?200 per person.
Those interested in making this trip with the New England chiefs should communicate with Mr. Cobb at 774 Albany Street, Boston, Mass.
