The Gresham volunteer fire department has Just completed its tenth year, and is starting out the eleventh year bigger, stronger and better equipped td protect the city from fire than ever before. It was organ-Id in February, 1911, and consisted of two hand hose-carts and a- chemical. Shortly afterwards a hook and ladder truck was added to the equipment, and the chemical, which was only a two- wheeled affair, was converted Into a four-wheeled cart and changed so that it could be hauled to fires hy auto. The present equipment- consists of a Ford fire truck, which carries a large chemical tank, hose and ladders. This was added In 1920. A large siren', mounted on top of the city hall, sounds the alarm, and a phone call to the operator is all that is neces sary to call out the department. The first chief was A. W. Metzger and assistant chief. Ezra Thomas. The members of the department were all young men and business men of the city. For a short time the fire equipment was housed In the old city hall on Powell street, but in December. 1912, It was moved Into the new hall on the corner of Powell street and Roberts avenue. Early in 191S the Gresham fire department took the Initiative in a movement to establish an annual firemen's tourna ment, and a meet was held here on the Multnomah County fair grounds In June of that year; Several volunteer depart ments participated, but the Lents vol unteer fire department was the only one tNon-sorority Co-eds T Make Better Grades - , Oregon Agricultural College.

Several fire departments in different parts of the state had girls' hose teams, and in due course of time one team after another was eliminated until the Gresham team and a team at Astoria stood at the head of the lis L In a hub and hub race at the 1913 Multnomah County fair, the Gresham girls defeated the Astoria team and proclaimed them selves champions of the1 United States. In the" 10 years of its history. tb$ fe' department has answered many calls, and only once has it asked for assistance. Tills was in December, 1914, when the biggest and most spectacular fire in the history of the city broke out. The alarm was turned in at '' a. m. one Sunday morning, and the :flre. which ' was fanned by an east wind, wiped out seven business houses. After a few hours of hard fighting, hampered by freezing weather, a call foj assistance was sent to Portland and a combination chemical, hook and ladder and hose truck was sent out from the fire station at East Thirty-fifth and Belmont Poles carrying power and light wires of the Portland Railway, Light & Power company were burned and the wires fell to the ground, causing several slight accidents. Several of the firemen had painful experiences from stepping on the wires. Karly in September or 1913, while a dance given by the fire department was in progress, an alarm was turned in and the fire was found to be at the home of the chief, Ettsel T. Jones. After a hard fight tho fire was put out and the apparatus hauled back to the fire station. Near the close of the dance the firemen were again called out to the chiefs tome, where it was found the fire had smouldered for some time In a mattress and finally broken out again. Another "freak" fire occurred when the room used by the firemen up stairs hi the city hall was found ablaze. The damage, however,- was slight. The membership of the department numbers 28 and nearly half of Jthem are ex-service men.' A large number of ths younger business men of the city are also members of the department. Harold Kern commands the fire department as chief and F. L. Mack is assistant chief. Rates at Molalla Electric Company - . Ordered Lowered Salem, Feb. 18.
