Some practical joker went out of his way to involve the fire department, Father Mason, as- iistarnt priest at St. Cecelia's and he police department in his little scheme. A false alarm was called in to .he police station and when the man on duty asked for the caller's name, the name of Father Vlason was given and the firemen sent to the scene. Father Mason, like most other (there was at least one that wasn't) persons in town, was asleep. The priest was awakened and of course knew nothing about the supposed fire. It all boils down to this — anyone guilty of turning in a falsa alarm is subject to a $100 fine or 30 days in the local clink — and if local authorities find out who did the job at 12:33 a.m. Monday someone will be hauled into court. It was the first out-and-out false alarm turned in here for a long time, according to Fire Chief Ira Kohl. [Mr and Mrs Peter H.
