'Keller, President of the Good Government League, who directed the , league fight against the gas franchises for Covington. The defeat of a piopo.-ed gas franchise at a refi rendu. n in November was a vic-toi y for the league, and an apparent defeat lor Ualvi.n, but the laugh is that Calvin and his associates had advised the Union Light. H"at and Power Company not to fight for passage of the gas i franchise. i Murphy and Keller also teamed up to start a publicity campaign that had much to do with smearing the plan of the State Highway Department to purchase the Suspension and Central bridges connecting Covington and Newport with Cincinnati. As the new year begins Keller and Murphy, while retaining .the league as a political weapon, ate playing more and more with Town-send Clubs in the city. I In Newport the electorate refused to authorize a bond issue for construction of a flood wall, notwithstanding a preponderance of voters favored the proposal. The catch was that a two-thirds majority was necessary for approval of the issue. The Newport City Commission refused to take advantage of a Federal loan for a public housing project. j SHUCK FOR SI'F.NCK.. Congl essnian Krent Spenee of Forth Thomas had little trouble in disposing (if primary and regular election opponents to be returned to Congress from the Fifth (Northern Kentucky) Congressional District. Spenee reci'ived a mild shock, however, when his Republican opponent, J. Arnold Kreke, also of Campbell County, running with Townsend Club aupport, polled a stiong vote in Campbell. Kreke was not a strong candidate and was supported half-heartedly, if at all, by many Republican leaders of Campbell. Much of his vote in the home bailiwick of both candidates inusi be ittrihuted to the Town-sendites, who may become a power il their group does not go boom this yea r. Spence lost a strong supporter in Kenton County when Postmaster Homer J. Northctitt of Covington died. To fill the vacancy Spence named Hairy G. Klosterman acting postmaster. Klosterman. active in Kenton County politics for years, has plenty (if strenglh, but he still has to pass the civil service examination befoie he receives final appointment and confirmation. That, however, almost always happens. One thing that may trouble Spence in the coming year, unless he speaks haihl. to the Treasury' Department and Post Office Department, will be the continued delay in building the new Covington Post Office. HOT W'ATF.R F'OKKCANT. Covington City Commissioners weie badgered throughout by the Good Government League and other groups, whereas the Newpoit Commissioners had a quiet year except for sporadic activities of individuals who sought to start gambling campaigns. The forecast for the new year is that Covington Commissioners will continue to be in hot water and that the Newport commissioners will find the going tougher in this election year. Back of the Newport misery very likely will be Mayor Hermann. who seldom wastes energy which may be the reason for the quiet year just passed in Newpoit. Public housing had tough going in Covington, but as the year ended loan contracts had been approved hy the Federal Government and court action had been decided against opponents to the housing projects. Thus theie was promise that in the new year the housing project would get under way despite opposition, said to have been inspiied chiefly hv building associations of he city. Kenton County Commissioners and Covington City Commissioners continued their fight over payment of lent by the county for its occupancy of space in the Covington City Building. The County Commissioners made gestures of at tempting to build a courthouse in Covington, but as the yeai' ended nothing had come (if it. The Knit, m County Hoard of Kd ncation had its dissent ions and difficulties dining the year, windm;: up with a new Superintendent of Schools. The Covington Boaid of Kducation moved along smoothly, inaiigniating a building piogiam that will result in thiee new school buildings, a new administration I building, and an addition to one school. FAAM ;UF.S TO ( III KT. i A civil seiviie examination for appointment of Covington police' and firemen was attacked success-' fully in local courts dining the1 year and may icsult in the appoint-1 ment of a new commission. Covington city employees other than police and firemen were placed under civil service during the year and a civil service commls-1 sion was appointed, but thus far nothing ha.; come of the move. 1 City Manager Theodore Kluem-per and City Commissioner approached the hi caking point once' or twice over city finances, but as' the year ended they appeared to be in accoid. What the future holds is pioblematical. The Commissioners have to stand for re-election and may go spectacular m an eftoit to save their jobs.

Covington, winners nf the Thirty-fourth District tournament, were the first opponents of Rellevue in Ihe ninth regional tourney and they felt the claws of the Tigers as Bellevue won, 30 to 25. Hebro-i was the next, victim, losing 31 to IK. The championship match between Bellevue and Walton-Verona proved to be a runaway for the Tigers, as they triumphed 4.1 to 22. with Jack Dumford scorinp- 21 points, one less than the entire Walton five. Coach Ted Wright's quintet drew Bui gin High in the first round of the state tournament at Lexington and survived, as they swamped them, 32 to 19. The second round or quarter finals proved their nemesis as the Sharpe High School Green Devil;; were their opponents. Sharpe. led by Culp, flashy red-haired forward trimmed the Tigers, 42 to 29, but only after a struggle which saw the Tigers right in the thick of things up until the fourth period. Sharpe went on to win the state title. A feature in the hoop game was the Newport All-Stars victory over the previously undefeated Waterloo Wonders at the Newport gymna- sium to the tune of 45 to 42. Tom- niy Reis led the scorers with six field goals and two ftee throws for 14 points. Bellevue also won the Little Six Conference swimming champion- ship. This being the fifth ronsecu- live year which they successfully defended their recoid of nevci having lost a swimming meet of allv kind in five years of compcti- tion. Coach Milton J.

They hung up eight new records as mey Drought tneir total points to 750 against 552 points scored by-all other schools in the conference combined during the five-year stretch.

If police officers call front any established police call location a green light is flashed on the same row the bottom one. Thus the bottom and middle rows of the thiee-row s itchboard are leseived for incoming calls. The color of the light or the position of that light in the row indicates to j the switchboard man the location and reason for the call. On the upper row of the switch-, board ate a corresponding number ; of sw itches for outgoing calls. By manipulat irg these switches the man at the hoard can communicate immediately with any station, or by closing all switches on the upper row he may communicate simultaneously with all stations of the department. j If any person dials the phone operator to report a fire, the operator checks with the caller to make sure that the correct address has been given, then relays the call on the emeigency or "redlight" section of the switchboard, listening in while the call is made to make sure that accurate information is given. Occasionally, but seldom, mistakes are made in this procedure, accoiding to Chief Northcutl and Assistant Chief Salyers. Officials of the department and the telephone company agree that most mistakes are due to excited persons reporting fires. A few subscribers have complained in lecent weeks, however, they experienced difficulties in getting conriection with the fire de-paitment when dialing according to inst met ions. Any member of the department may call the switchboard operator of the department direct by a special line. These calls cause a bell at the upper left-hand coiner of the switchboard to ling without turning in a lite alarm. Connections may be made with any of the de paitment's companies by calling through this main switchboard. When an Enquirer rcpoitcr visited the headquarters several test calls were made from various sec lions of the city by request of Chief Northctitt. The reporter checked the lapsed time between making nf the calls and receipt of information as to location hy the department, using his own watch and the laige clock above the switchboard. None of the calls required nioi e than seven seconds for completion. While these test calls were being made firemen were stationed at various places in the headquarters building to call, "Hold it!" to prevent firemen in upper stories from sliding down to their posts. File-men had not been Inl'oi med beforehand that the reporter was to be accommodated with a demons! latum of the highly-technical met hods. Fire stations and equipment are so located throughout the city that it never requires longer than five minutes allowing for reasonable accidents for fiienien and equip ment to reach the scene of any fire within the city limits after the alarm is received at headquarters. Chief Northcult said. Virtually the same time is re quired for box alarms. These alarms, however, are legistered differently at headquarters. They are "lapped out" on a combination bell and ticker tape, indicating by a double system of signals the position of the fire accoiding to the number of the box that is "pulled If two boxes arc "pulled" in the vicinity of a fire the department responds to both alaims. The department answers all calls, regaid-less of number or location, for that matter, accoiding to Chief North-cult. No situation has yet arisen in which the department was unable to do this, he said. The department has five pumpers, thiee of which have a capacity of 75u gallons a minute and two of which have a capacity of 1,0'IG gallons a minute. In addition to this equipment there is one aerial ladder tiuck, one combination ladder and hose wagon, two combination hose and chemical wagons, two chiefs cais, one master mechanic's car, one electrician's truck, one all-service truck, one high-pi essui e wagon, and an ambulance. The ambulance was acquired during the administration of Chief Northctitt, who became Chief nine years ago aftei serving ll) years on the department. In addition to the fire fight ing equipment and the ambulance, each ladder wagon is equipptd with nets, rescue bags, and stietcheis foi quick emergency work. An ample supply of heavy axes and pickaxes also is included in ladder wagon equipment. Chief Northcutt said last night he had leai ncd in his long experience as a fireman and official of the department to respect and hold in high regard the men who work in the department. Operating expenses of the de paitment in IMS wer $2fi.023.2"i anil salaiies totaled $140,370.63, Chief Northcutt said. , RECORD Continued From Preceding Page. weie no major ciimes in tin county.

Despite an increase in the city's population over the last 10 years, construction of homes for low -income families remained at a standstill, the commission reported. Construction l'ecords showed a net increase of 440 dwellings during the years 1927-1937. but that not a single new dwelling unit could have been within the reach of low-incoma families. According to present plans, one unit of the housing project will provide decent, safe, and sanitary liv ing quarters in two-story flats, with ample commilnit . CPmer ce and - r fl V areas. The other is expected to consist of similar dwellings in two-storv row houses and three- story apartment buildings.
