Schrage Again Honored by Iowa Firemen
H. C. Schrage, Waterloo, Ia., was reelected President of the Iowa Association of Fire Fighters, at a convention held at Ottumwa. The other officers are C. E. Chappelle, Sioux City, First VicePresident; Melvin C. Thompson, Cedar Rapids, Second Vice-President, and William Hottel, Des Moines, Secretary-Treasurer. The 1937 convention will be held at Burlington.
The association is pushing legislation to protect operators of fire apparatus, against damage suits in case of accidents. It also asks that firemen be exempt for payment of the old-age pension tax.
