Texas Firemen Meet at El Paso
Nearly six hundred delegates attended the fifty-ninth annual convention of the Texas State Firemen’s and Fire Marshals’ Association, held at El Paso, Tex., June 11-13.
G. F. Dohrn, of Mission, Chairman of the Firemen’s Pension Law Committee, asked the firemen to continue their efforts for pension legislation. A pension measure passed by the legislature was vetoed by the Governor. The committee telegraphed to the Governor asking for a conference so that he might explain to them his objections to the pension bill.
A safety squad from Fort Worth demonstrated first aid methods. The firemen were entertained by a barbecue and they visited Juarez, Mexico, to witness a bull fight. The convention next year will be held at Fort Worth.
The new officers are E. P. Hall, Weatherford, President; R. R. Talbert, Mercedes, First Vice-President; G. E. Dalton, Coleman, Second Vice-President; Olin Culberson, Edna, Secretary-Treasurer.
