Study of revenues obtained by other cities from charges for minor street privileges, with a view of drafting an ordinance in Cincinnati to establish fees for special street uses, is being made by Ed. F. Alexander, Assistant City Solicitor. Alexander was requested by John D. Ellis, City Solicitor, to prepare a report on street privileges after Councilman Herbert S. Bigelow indicated a desire to have an ordinance drafted on the subject. A report of the New York State Conference of Mayors in 1935 advocates dispensing of street privileges at market values, as against any plan to raise revenues by charging fees for city services such as garbage collection, Alexander indicated. Pontiac, Mich., with population of 65,000, receives $15,000 a year from fees for special use of sidewalks granted to business concerns. In 1929 John B. Blandford completed a report for Colonel C. O. Sherrill, then City Manager, in which study of possible income from fees for use of tunnels, pipe lines, overhead bridges, sidewalk loading platforms, sidewalk vaults, and other street privileges was discussed. Alexander will study the broad field of many reports before the City Solicitor's office and Bigelow discuss what street privileges in Cincinnati might be taxable under an ordinance to be submitted to council.

The attic and roof of a 109-year-old, two-and-one-half story house on the California Golf Course was damaged by fire of undetermined crigin eaily yesterday. The loss was placed at $2,500. Acquired a year ago by the Recreation Commission, the home was being made into a clubhouse. A man named Joseph Johnson built the home in 1327, it was said. Marshal Louis Schraffenberger, first to arrive, called additional companies in charge of Marshal Harry Gesselbracht. It was necessary for firemen to stretch 1,200 feet of hose to get at the blaze, which at first threatened to destroy the entire building. W. W. Abernathy, assistant superintendent of boy transients un der the County Welfare Department, and Robert Keltner, a department employee, reported the fire. ; They fled from the building to sound a fire alarm, then aroused 27 transients asleep in a bunkhouse near by. They busied themselves removing furniture and fighting the fire with hand extinguishers while awaiting the arrival of firemen. STARTS TWELFTH SEASON. For the twelfth successive season Gregory J. OLeary, 1138 Iliff Avenue, Price Hill, yesterday was sworn in by J. A. Gayman, Deputy Collector of Customs, as Navigation Inspector on the Ohio River. O'Leary's duties are to enforce navigation laws, particularly those requiring motor and other boats to carry fire extinguishers, lights, and other safety equipment and to check the number of passengers carried by excursion steamers to prevent them from carrying more passengers than the quota assigned to them. He is to serve from July JiJ 1 to September 7. ' City Manager C. A. Dykstra (right) is congratulating Fire Chief Barney J. Houston after presenting a commemorative diamond-studded Fire Chief's badge to him. Mrs. Leon L. Wolf is seated at left.' High tribute, was paid to Fire Chief Barney J. Houston who yesterday celebrated his twentieth anniversary as head of the Cincinnati Fire Department, given in the Hotel Gibson roof garden last night at a testimonial dinner. Box 13 associates, a group of Cincinnati professional and business men interested in the work of the Fire Department and a citizens' committee, arranged the testimonial. Chief Houston was congratulated upon the many improvements made in the department under his leadership, and upon the reduction of fire losses in Cincinnati effected in part through his promotion of fire prevention activities. Clarence Goldsmith, assistant chief engineer of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, told the 500 persons at the dinner that Houston was known as the "Boy Chief" at the time of his appointment 20 years ago. He pointed to the great change in fire-fighting methods that has come about in the diamond-studded badge, Chief Hotiston began his speech of thanks. Later he declared -he was "taken in," because "my mother taught me to believe everything that a policeman said." Houston praised the work of his subordinates in making the Fire Department what it is. He expressed the hope that progress in the next two decades would be as great as in the last 20 years. Rev. William C. Welch, who pronounced invocation last night, gave Houston a recommendation that obtained his first appointment to the Fire Department nearly SO years ago. At that time Father Welch was assistant pastor of St. Edwards Church. He was a 'u-miliar figure at the fire engine house at Laurel and Cutter Streets. Leon L. Wolf, General Chairman and "Chief" of Box 13 Associates, presided at the dinner. George Puchta, who was Mayor in in 1916 when Houston was appointed Chief, sent a congratulatory telegram. Puchta was to have been one of the speakers, but was called out of the city. Dancing concluded the program. IP On TNI RKWV Phone PArkway 3800 Summer Store Hours: 9 A. M. to 5 P. M. ALWAYS ALERTI For the first time in the history of the Fire Department, all of the Fire Marshals were "off duty" at the same time to attend the testimonial dinner to their Chief last night. Fire Captains substituted for the marshals during the dinner. However, had there been a "ten blow" the Fire Marshals and Chief Houston would have responded. Just for such an emergency, a telephone line was set up direct from the Fire Tower to the Hotel Gibson Roof Garden, where the dinner was given. The Fire Tower reported no f're calls of any kind during th3 entire program. the two decades since Houston took charge, contrasting the horSe-drawn equipment, some of which was still in use in 1916, with motorized equipment of the present day. A diamond-studded Fire Chief's badge, the gift of Box 13 Associates and the citizens' committee, was presented to Chief Houston by City Manager C. A. Dykstra, who paid particular tribute to the fire-prevention work accomplished by Chief Houston and the city's fire men. "Their 1ob is to get themselves out of a job," he said. A wrist watch was presented to Mrs. Houston bv the Citizens' Com mittee, of which Cal Crim was Chairman. Mayor Russell Wilson, toastmaster, made the presentation.

The Fire Chief is a member of the advisory board of the bank. Tn an address acknowledging the tribute paid to him Chief Houston jested that he felt like the elderly lady who suddenly lost her hus band. After hearing the eulogies in praise of her husband, Houston related, the elderly lady turned to her young son at her side and said, "Johnny, go up there and see if that's your father in the casket." A bit of merriment was injected into the proceedings by Colonel Eugene T. Weatherly, Police Chief, who presented Chief Houston with a glistening badge, "a false alarm."
