FINDING buyers for antiquated steam fire-engines is a hard enough task, says City Purchasing Agent Albert H. Losche, without being pooh-poohed by your ultra modern. skeptical 6-year-old boy! Hearing his father’s complaints on the total absence of bids for three old-fashioned, coal-burning engines which have been clutter ing up fire stations since motor ization of the department in 1920, Albert Losche Jr., 6, gave his dad this unkindly “dig:” “Oh. whoever heard of horses pulling a fire truck? They’d be too slow!” “And that,” says the city purchasing agent, "is what we must expect today of youngsters who never saw the plunging teams that used to race past us to the fires while our hair stood on end in our excitement.” Bids on the antiquated ap paratus were asked today, and since no one has shown interest in the coming sale. Losche has re sorted to the phone book, calling persons he believes would profit from the purchase. South side truck gardeners who could use the pumpers ad vantageously in dry weather and several coal mine operators have been solicited. One horse-drawn engine is ap praised for SSO and two tractor pull types sre appraised for $75 and $l5O. FUNERAL RITES SET Edward Schurmann Dies Suddenly at Home.

While “L'il Mratha” left off her lovelorn letters long enough to ex claim, “Brown derbies are just spiffy. Sure, I’ll be a judge.” Jo-Jo Will Do the Work As for Jo-Jo, the less said about him the better, for he’ll do all the work. The contest is being conducted by The Indianapolis Times and the Veterans of Foreign Wars in con nection with the “Siege of 1918.” A bronze plaque given by the Stanley jewelers and a brown derby donated by Harry Levinson, hatter, will be awarded the city’s most dis tinguished citizen on July 19. “You can vote a* many dern times as you can write names,” vouches Jo-Jo, as he appends the following list of candidates to his copy and the ballot in the current edition of The Times.

STORE Abdominal Supports and Shoulder Braces HAAG’S CUT-PRICE DRUGS FIRE MARSHAL DETERMINED ON HOSPITAL BAN Hcgston to Insist Unit Bs Closed as ‘Fire Trap’; Prepares Order. Declaring he will not temporize or permit further delays, Alfred M. Hogston, fire marshal, today pre pared to make his order for aban donment of an old section of the city hospital building “air tight.” He sent Inspector Harry Styner to the hospital to get an accurate and minute description of the sec tion which he will demand be aban doned as unsafe and a “fire trap.” The order probably will not be completed until Monday. At that time, Fire Marshal Hogston de clared, he will have copies served on Mayor Reginald H. Sullivan, Dr. William Doeppers, city hospital su perintendent; members of the city council, members of the city health board, state health board and of the board of public works. Discuss No Delays Fire Marshal Ho e ston declared he will not attend any meeting of the city board of health to discuss de lays in enforcing the order. “There has been an eighteen months’ delay already.” he declared, “and I can not permit city officials to talk me into further delays. Fire in that section of the city hospital now would be murder for the pa tients confined there.” Receipt of the formal order con demning the old city hospital ward unit as a “fire trap” was awaited by the city health board before for mal consideration is given the order to vacate, which was issued Wednes day. Forty patients are housed in the old structure and the board has no facilities for caring for the deten tion and contagious ward cases. The new out-patient building, which will be completed about Jan. 1. will house the old dispensary clinic. Bond Margin Obstacle Facilities for handling the con tagious and detention ward patients was provided for in the building program as outlined by the board in the Slack administration, but Sulli van leaders have opposed building the $1,050,000 seven-story ward unit because of the city’s low bonding margin. “In laying out the original build ing program, the health board and former council knew vacation of this old building was going to be neces sary,” declared Herman P. Lieber, former councilman and Community Fund vice-president, who is oppos ing the $65,000 bond issue before council for completion of a “blind” floor in the out-patient building. Lieber contends completion of a floor in the out-patient building is only a “makeshift” and will not serve as a permanent relief. “That $65,000 will go a long ways toward starting a part of the ward unit and I can see no economy in the temporary proposition,” said Lieber, who will appear before coun cil Monday night to object to the proposed bond issue. City Controller William L. Elder took issue with the state official’s declaration that tne old unit is a "fire trap.” “There are thousands of buildings in Indianapolis in worse condition than that and many of the hospitals of Indiana are net as good,” Elder said. „ I MA&flflCtYlu€T f /m>iailpolis\\ (CLEARIIjf HOUpj <CjFEDERAL RESERVE^^-^^ 1 Savings deposits made at any Fletcher Trust Bank pay you interest at the rate of 4% a year, compounded semi-annually, on balances of $5 and more.
