of the train the broad satin band was
adorned with n lover's knot of orange
blossoms. The veil was fashioned into a
S'ormnndy enp with a band of Ilclglan
lace wreathing the fnce and n circle of
ornnge blossoms fastening tho veil at
the bak. Tbe bride's flowers were
white roses, mcliids and vnllev lilies.
The maid of honor. Miss Mary Glen
dlnuing, of Philadelphia, one of Miss
Dodge's schoolmates nt Springside

Lucllc model of pink chiffon, the net

Committee Tonight Will Hear
Arguments for Double
Platoon System
This evening tbe Camden firemen will
present to the fire committee of Camden
City Council their request for a two
platoon fire system, to take the place
of that now In force, which requires the
men to bo on duty twenty-four hours a
Camden is greatly concerned over the
efforts of the firemen to get n better
schedule of hours. All the business men
nnd business men's associations are
standing behind the fight of the firemen
for easier hours., Yesterday the Cam
den Ministerial Association Indorsed the
firemen's plea at their meeting and
passed a resolution asking Council to
grnnt the request.
The case of the firemen will be pre
sented nt the committee meeting by n
committee chosen to represent all the
firemen of Camden. The chairman and
spokesmnn of the committee will be
Lieutenant Willinm Itose. Other mem
bers of the committee represent all rnnks
In tho fire department. They nrp Itat

don. On Duty nt All Times
The present sjstem prevailing In the
Camden fire department requires that
the men be on duty at all times, ready
to respond to fire calls day or night.
The men themselves find it a hardship
physically, as they rarely can remove
their clothing for a good night's rest,
and their families complain bitterly,
that it makes the head of the house a
stranger in his own home. At present
every fireman is given one day oft in
It is desired to introduce a two-bnt-tnlion
system, under which the men wiH
bo twelve hniira on duty nnd twelvo
hours off in evert twenty-four. It In
l,lltal tI,at to do this will require
nn .n . . .... ,m,. ' ,i
an extra force of between fifty and
seventj men, and will cost the tax
payers from seven to eight cents extra
on tbe hundred.
Fire Chief Peter Carter, head of the
Camden department, snld today that
he was heartily In sympathy with the
men's request for a two-battalion sys
tem, and would do nil In his power to
promote it. He said that if Council np
piovfs the proposed chnnge he will
do his best to so nrrange thnt the num
ber of extra men needed will be kept
to n minimum.
Mnynr Ellis likewise favors the two
battalion sjstem. He said that when
the fire committee presents the ptoject
to Council he will do everything lie
can to get it onncted and iuMorce by
the end of the cnr.
Hought Best Equipment
"Years iigo, when I wns a member
of tbe fire committee," said the mayor,
"I made it mv business to get the

Inclusion in the city budget of an

possible to pinko an appropriation that
