Veterans of tho old time volunteer Fire Departments of Brooklyn had their annual parade to-day. More than a thousand of them wcro In line. Patrick J. Kelly was Grand Marshal, with City Magistrate Al frcd E. Steers and Thomas H. Joyce as his assistants. At the head of tho Brooklyn Volunteer Firemen's Asso ciation marched President J. D, Byrne, chief clerk of tho Appellate Division Court. Ho had as his staff Ruloff Lott, ninety-eight years old, one of tho last survivors of Median les Engine No. 2, and William Orcg ory. ninety-four, of Protector No. 6. William H. Todd, as Battalion Chief of tho Wilmington, Del., Volunteer Firemen, headed the visiting firemen. Other organlzauons In lino were tho Now Lots Exempt Firemen, Eastern District Exempt Firemen, Flatbush Veteran Firemen, Graves end Exempt and Volunteer Firemen, Now Utrecht Exempt Firemen and tn Flatlr-- Volunteer Firemen. On tho way from tho assembly at Bor ough Hall tho veterans were saluted by tho firemen of Engine No. 205 paraded bjr Llout. Alexander M. Deans. He. which Includes the butcher, the baker and the candlesUck maker, to uso an old saying, finds the car a real adjunct to business. Broadly speaking, tncro are two classes of visitors at a motor car show. There are thoso who aro Inter ested chiefly In motor design and me chanical construction, and those to whom tho body design nnd comrort in fittings appear the, chief Issuo. Not only women visitors but many men as woll tako it for granted that the mechanism of tho modern car naa been brought so close to perfection that they need not worry as to a car's ability to run successfully and display qualities of endurance. Improvements In bodies to be seen at tho show indicate that tho refine ments for 1922 aro chiefly comfort re finements. This means that tho In closed typo finds greater popularity than over beforo. Bettor and neater fittings, moro leg room, paint and enamel for which greater durability Is claimed aro somo of tho features noted. Still more cars are hung low tnls season, following ino xrona oi itui. This form of construction eliminates sldo sway and much unnecessary vi bration. It will be noticed that bodies havo larger windows than In previous seasons nnd to a degreo wnicn mattes vision practically as frco an J' unob structed as with an open car.
