HORNI FIRM BUSY
ON ALARM ORDERS
ntersection Of Third,
Front Street Also En
gages City Attention
Two municipal safety improve
ment projects—the installation oi
111 new fire alarm boxes and thf
intersection of Third and Front
scheduled for completion some
time this coming fall, City Man
ager J. R. Benson said yesterday.
The Horni-Signal Manufacturing
company, New York, has been en
gaged in building the 111 fire
alarm boxes since the city won the
celebrated court case against
Gamewell some months ago, Ben
son said. Actual delivery date,
however, has not yet been set.
The city also has on order four
electric stoplights for the Third
Front street intersection, Benson
said. As soon as they arrive and
building materials are available,
the task of intersecting the two
streets will begin.
This project will entail clearing
out the expanse of lawn and shrub
bery now separating the two
streets and slightly altering the
course of the streets themselves to
effect a straight-as-possible inter
section, according to the prelimi
nary plans drawn up by City Engi
