ton's Fire Department under the new
two-platoon system, when It begins
operation, will be composed of limited
service soldiers of tbe United States,
who will be ioa'tred to the Fire De
partment through furlough from the
various army camps.
As with the same class ot men now

force, th3e men will continue to
wear their army uniforms, although
it If permissible for them to buy
the regular blue uniforms of the fire
men If they wish. The purchase ot
uniforms will not be required because

recruits or limited service soldiers
are obtained to put It Into effect. Ar
rangements have already been made
for a number of these men from Camp
Humphreys, but the negotiations for
them and their selection all take con
The department, under the existing:
system, consisted of SOS men, but for
more than a year there has been a
deficiency In the number called for
owing; to war conditions bringing
about repeated resignations. The law
creating the two-platoon system
calls for 017 officers and men. The
firemen, in their desire to see the
two-platoon operative as early as
possible, have worked hard for re-
cruris, and have Increased the regu
lar force to about the maximum
number called for under the exist
lng system. They are still about 137
men short of the necessary 617 and
the military camps are being combed
ifor men who can not be used by the
Government In active service abroad.
It Is expected to get the men In a
few weeks. As fast as they are
brought here they will be scattered
