During 1938, the Freepnrl Station Volunteer^ fought 101 fires within the City limits, besides answering calls for various emergencies, Such as stand-by at wrecks* explosions, local and county disasters. The bunker suits and' helmets, said Dwlght tAirvey, one of the two paid firemen who combine to ke'ep 24-hour duty at the station, will protert the firemen from Intense heat to a large extent, and help keep them from damaging or ruin' ing their personal clothes. The firemen volunteers give their services and should not be required or left to sustain clothing losses. It Is estimated that the cost per man to provide the bunker su;u and helmets will be 961.80, or a total expenditure of $S47J, This Is what the men would like to raise through "your contribution, large or small."

It would create a good place tor small boat maneuvers In re- creative sport, better fishing, and a more beautiful thrfee- side border for the park in addition to its attractive shad* trees on high ground. Then, too, such a dam, not too high to cause flooding of the park ground, Would keep back brackish water that migh( back up jfrom the Gulf whert water in the creek was low. That idea suggests that if the need should arise some good water from above the dam for limited purpom alriri < It III look!
