WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1947 Experts on Fires Discuss Hotels Open Exits Blamed For Disasters in Chicago and Atlanta MEMPHIS. Tenn., Jan. 8.—<UP) —Open exits made disasters out of ,l or ., titflt ae " 1C Winecoff and LaSalle hotels in Atlanta and Chicago. James p. McCormack, Tcn- t "" SCe f ' rc " mrsh » 1 . declared to- "Wc have got to enclose stairs nnd. locally fires,'' McConnack | lold 100 fire chiefs nnd their assistants, representing 40 states, at the opening O f Hie 13th annual National Fire Department Instructors conference here yesterday. Roferi'inp ( o the "strong mxlraft through the open stairwell" in the. Winecoff fire, McCormack said "a stove is fireproof, but w hat you put in it will bum." He charged that n major factor in lack of structural fire safety has been "resistance of properly owners." ''Let us use our Influence to protect the American public," McCor- innck urged. "Human life is more important than property values." McCornwiek said he "would ask the Tennessee lc B l«lature to pass more .stringent, fire control regulations, including the requirement that every public building have at least two exits, both with two- hour fire-resistance exposures. W. w. Hamilton, Chicago Board of Underwriters, demanded a higher plane of fire prevention service nnd said a "do-it-tomorrow" attitude blocked vital preventive measures which would have saved the Winecoff and LaSallc victims. Hamilton criticized weak leadership, routine fire prevention inspections, unconvincing recommendations and the influence of local politicians, Lewis A. Vincent, of the National Board of Underwriters, reported the nation's fire Joss totaled $550 000.000 last year. I'uncl discussions o n latest me-tin oils of combating fire destruction will feature the conference. iLLB (ARK.> COURIER NKW8 UN Mg/Check on Interndtiono!
