WHAT THE INTERNATIONAL CHIEFS WILL DO AT ’FRISCO
Revised Program of the Fiftieth (jubilee) Annual Convention of the Association—the Business Session and the Entertainment Features
SAN FRANCISCO has outdone itself in its efforts to give the chiefs of the I. A. F. E. an enjoyable and memorable time at the Jubilee Convention which takes place from the 15th to the 18th of August in that city. This will be realized after the perusal of the official program, which has just been received, and which is published herewith. It is also to be noticed that the practical and educational features of the convention are splendidly taken care of in the arrangement of the program, and if any chief comes away from ‘Frisco without having gained some new knowledge in Fire Fighting, it will be his own fault.
