Northwest Arkansas Firemen’s Association
Judging from the enthusiasm injected into the proceedings of the quarterly convention recently held at Bentonville by the Northwest Arkansas Firemen’s Association, the organization is destined to play an important part in the future gatherings of fire departments in that part of the country. These officers have been elected for the ensuing year: W. P. Dean, of Fort Smith, re-elected president; Joe Morris, Eureka Springs, vicepresident ; F. W. Brock, Bentonville, secretary-treasurer. During the session all the principal business concerns closed their doors to give their employes an opportunity to attend. Following the welcoming address by Mayor Sam Beasley, several addresses on fire prevention and fire fighting were made. In the evening a very delectable banquet was served by the ladies of the School Improvement Association. On the invitation of Assistant Chief Joe Morris, of Eureka, that city was designated as the next meeting place of the association.
