Williamsport Private Made Assistant Chief
Michael E. Clark, has been appointed assistant fire chief of the Williamsport, Pa., department, at a salary of $135 a month. Mayor Gilmore, at the end of the fifth ballot at the election, read a petition from a large number of manufacturers favoring Mr. Clark, for his knowledge of machinery. There was a deadlock when the sixth ballot was voted and when Mayor Gilmore’s name was reached he changed to Clark who became the successful applicant for the position. The new assistant chief has had much experience in the fire-fighting profession and has been a hoseman in No. 3 Engine Company for the past ten years.
