. PAGE TWELVE THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE. PA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2G, 193S. Dunbar Trade Board Hears Fire Question Discussed at Dinner lalf of Nation Crippled; Ice, Snow Prevail M. B. Pryce of This City Gives Prevention Suggestions. TRUCK FUND STILL LACKS ABOUT S500 DUNBAR, Jan. 26.- of · Connellsville was ·M. B. Pryce speaker last evening at the first dinner meeting of the year of the Board of "Trade. He spoke on "Fire Prevention and Fire Protection." In part, he said: "Fire prevention and flre protection go hand in band, and barring elements such as lightning the hazards of fire can be cut down materially with the proper flre lighting equipment and cooperation between the citizenry and flre department. Seldom, if ever, is insurance suf- flcient to cover the damage wrought by this hazard. Insurance docs not cover the loss of time "and profit which fires cause. "Women are far superior to men in" keeping down flre hazards, for it is seldom that a flre occurs in a home in which Ihe housekeeper is ever on the alert to" hazards. Men nrc more negligent concerning in- speclion of thos'e things which migi-t cause fires, such as faulty flues, bad wiring and other things, and are generally reminded of these laults by the housekeeper. "Another way o£ bringing down flre losses is to educate the children ot the community to the dangers ol fire and showing them how easy It is "to eliminate these dangers. An occasional talk to school children will be a big help to all concerned." "Strange. as it may seem," continued the speaker, "the volunteer firemen have more property to protect than their metropolitan neighbors. It is only by complete cooperation of the citizenry in furnishing these men with proper equipment that they can fully carry out their splendid work. "These firefighters are " not men who have nothing else" to" do, but they are business and professional men who are doing" their utmost to serve their community,'paying little heed to the weather or time of day or night when they arc summoned. "A well organized department, p r o p e r l y supported by fellow citizens, is an asset to any community and every effort should be made to help these men carry on their splendid work." W. G. Hankin, president, made the following interesting announcement: First, that a new Business enterprise would soon come into the community. It is the construction o£ a modern dairy here. It will help local farmers to dispose of their milk supply, keeping the profits in town. Second, that there will be a meeting of the board of directors in the N. Y. A. building next Tuesday evening at which time n number o£ important projects will be discussed, especially the problem of bringing water in to the town. Third, that all wishing to contribute to the National fund for infantile paraiysis should do so by giving their money to Mr. Show, agent at the Pennsylvania railroad ticket office. A report was -given on the drive for funds for the debt due on the flrc truck. Mr. Bowman, treasurer of the board, stated approximately $800 has been collected, and with n number of pledges yet to be collected the amount would be near the $1,000 mark. A total indebtedness of $1,700 exists but a concession of $200 will be given to the flre company providing the bill is paid by a certain date. The baked ham dinner was prepared and served by the women of the church. Honor_SJud«nrs. Principal John C.

Russell Carr trial judge, after he had waited for hours in the hope the 12 men and women .would be able to come to some understanding In their deliberations. Fiesta entered suit against J. C Laick, superintendent of Davidson mine "of Republic Steel Corporation for loss of his right leg as a result of an automobile collision last April 20 at the intersection of Crawford avenue and Ninth street, Connellsville. The trial occupied several days and was marked by heated verba" battles between Defense Counsel W Brown Higbee and counsel for the plaintiff, Attorney John J. Duggan Jr. Fiesta admitted he had three operations on the right leg as a rcsul of a' malignant growth but chargcc hat the limb was well on the roat :o recovery when it was aggravated oy an injury after Laick's car struck lis. Physicians recommended amputation. The jury was charged Friday by Judge Carr and retired early in the afternoon to deliberate. When i failed to report by midnight Saturday, Judge Carr ordered the jury brought into the courtroom where upon learning there was no hope for an agreement, he discharged the sody from further service. The case, it is expected, will be listed for the next civil court term ;n April. ton. Class to Meet.
