THAT WINNING SMILE—
Hats off, boys, to Fireman Joseph H. Barker of Engine Co. 59, New York City, whose suggestion “The Fire Brigade” took first prize — $500 cash — in the film title contest conducted by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and the International Association of Fire Engineers. Above photograph was taken last week at the New York offices of MetroGoldwyn-Mayer after presentation of the check.
Barker, while only in the New York Department six months, has put six years in the Fire Patrol and two years as an inspector in the Fire Prevention Bureau. He is 32, unmarried, and the sole support of his widowed mother with whom he lives.
The full list of prize winners and details of the contest and the film appeared in the last issue of FIRE ENGINEERING.
