Panama Daily Describes I. A. F. E. Convention
In the souvenir edition of the Panama El Tiempo, commemorating the anniversary of the formation of the Panama Republic, a section is devoted to a description of the Golden Jubilee convention of the International Association of Fire Engineers, with illustration showing portraits of Chiefs Evans, of New Orleans, Murphy, of San Francisco, Reynolds, of Augusta, and Ex-Chief Jay W. Stevens, of the National Board of Fire Underwriters. On the same page are shown the portraits of Chief J. A. Guizado. of Panama City, and M. F. De Castro, aide and interpreter to Chief Guizado. The group photograph of the I. A. F. E. delegates is reproduced in three sections, occupying an entire page, and the photograph of the Pacific Coast Association’s convention is also printed. Another illustration is that of the I. A. F. E. badge worn by Chief Guizado. The illustrations are accompanied by a descriptive article in Spanish, telling of the principal events at the convention.
Work on the new building for the water and light plant of the city of Fulton, Mo., will be started at once under the direction of H. K. Graf, an engineer of St. Louis, and labor will be hired by the city, to be secured as needed. Decision to build the structure without contract was decided upon by the city to hasten the job. The structure will be constructed of brick and the boiler house section will be erected first. Work on the new smokestack for the plant is being delayed because an eastern firm that is to supply the hollow tile has a strike in its plant.
