Fire Chief Hildebrand seats this morning that two
additional fire stations have been placed in service, bringing the
total now in operation to 21 out of 32. This has been accomplished
by placing existing Fire Department personnel on overtime and
by adding ten additional men to the Fire Department complement.

The ten men added Thursday now give us a total of 254 Firemen.

We were fortunate in having only 12 alarms during the
night and none was of major import. Two firefighting units were

required to move some 50 bales of damaged cotton from a cotton

warehouse fire at 1088 Murphy Avenue. The City Construction

Department was requested to assist by sending mechanized
equipment to expedite the moving of the cotton bales and promptly

responded to lend a hand to the Firemen,
