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.

Ed. Wynn Popularizes March by Secretary Woodin The Fire Chief March, which William H. Woodin, the new Secretary of the U. S. Treasury wrote and dedicated to Ed. Wynn, the comedian Fire Chief of the Texas Oil Company's radio broadcast, was played throughout a recent parade in New York City which also featured various types of modern fire apparatus. The parade started from the Battery and went up Broadway and Fifth Avenue. It was embellished by a bevy of beautiful show girls who rode the fire engines and cheered the crowds on the sidewalks. The photograph shows Chief Ed. Wynn at the wheel of the apparatus.
