Politics Ousts Chief Taylor
Chief H. L. Taylor, head of the Rome, Ga., Fire Department since March 21, 1921, and a member of the fire service since November 11, 1910, was removed from office by a new set of city commissioners.
In commenting on this move Chief Taylor said, “I have given half of my life, perhaps the best part, to the service of the city. Just because of some political reason I have been kicked out. I fail to sec what good will come to any department if this practice is followed through.”
Blanchester, Ohio, has purchased a Seagrave-Reo community fire apparatus carrying a 400 g.p.m. pump, a 200-gallon booster tank and minor equipment. Similar type apparatus was purchased by Crestline, Ohio. Both deliveries will be made in March.
