Sheriff Bill Decker quoted Ruby Swings At One of His Three Lawyers training instructor and chief fire prevention inspector were established despite the request of Charles Ware Jr., assistant cify attorney that the board take no action pending a court decision now before tbe Court of Appeal. Ware and Mayor Alfred Roberts objected to the creation of the positions on the grounds that the civil service board has no legal right to create positions unless requested by the appointing authority. Charles George, president of the Lake Charles Fire Fighters Association, AFL-CIO, urged the board to establish the classes "to prevent the mayor from naming 'Joe Blow' to a job anc then blanketing him under a request for establishment of a class." George said the establishmen of the classes would enable examinations to be called ant an eligible list established for the time when the city woulc want to fill the posts. "Thet there would be a list from which to choose," he explained, add ing, "No use to make this a political football." George told the board the mayor, fire chief, National Board of Underwriters and many others "recognized the need for these positions." Mayor Roberts objected to the use of the "fire chief and the mayor" and urged those remarks to be stricken from the record. The positions are now established on a promotional basis as compared with a former design of "competitive" basis. Voting for creation of the two posts were Sgt. Hubert Meeker, police department representative on the board, John Fontenot of the fire department.
