Four Hundred Pupils Piloted to
Children Tranquilly Walk Through
Smokq to Safety Without.
Morritz Moser, Scholar; Hiss M. E.
McKee. Teacher, and W. E. May
Distinguish Themselves.
Thanks m efficient fire drill nearly 400
children of the Seaton Public School
man-lied unperturbed through smokeehokcd
halls to safety on the outside of
the buddies' when a small Tire broke out
in the basement of the structure about
;> ::o O'clock this morning.
During those two minutes it took to
empty the building of its precious humanity
there was displayed equanimity,
presence of mind and chivalry of the kind
lauded in all time
Kut Morritz Moser. a pupil who is just j
entering his teens: Miss M. K. McKee.
teacher of the fifth grade, and W. K.
May. the janitor, are accorded the major
meed of glory. These three were on the
third floor when the tire was discovered. I
Miss McKee was directing the pupils in
tier grade in the arts of penmanship, and j
Morritz. with knitted hrows and protrud- i
in* tongue, was tr>ing to make his pen
form the letters of the words of :t short !
proverb. Janitor May was busy at work I
doing some cleaning in the third-floor !
orrlilor. Industry there was on all three
floors of the school building.
Bire Bell Rings Out.
Viang, clang, clang."
K.ccry little head in Miss McKee's room
bobbed up. The tire boll in the corridor
was making the din. Eyes shifted from
waiting pad to teacher.
"Fire drill, children." said Miss McKee,
In even tone. "Gel your coats quickly."
A few seconds sufficed for tdie children !
to get into their coats. Hats were carried
in hands.
Then, in single tile, under the eye of
Miss McKee, they marched from the j
cloakroom into the corridor. Going down i
stairs ciouus 01 ?moiif roued into their
faces. Miss MrKeo walked sedately with
them, putting her arm around one wbo
had begun to cry and gently voicing reassurances
for all.
When the forty children of her class had
reached the second-floor corridor Miss McKep
saw the dense volume ?f smoke
choking the stairways to the first floor.
The lire escape was remembered in a |
flash, although it had never been used t>y i
the children in a fire drill.
"This way, children," she called, head- |
ing the procession into one of the secondfloor
classrooms, from which the tire escape
leads. Miss Lackey, a seventh grade
teacher, who had directed her pupils safely
down the stairways to the exit door,
had remained on the second floor. in
haste, but unflustered, she opened the
window leading to the tire escape.
Morritz Moser all the time had been
busy. He had helped playmates into
eoats in the cloakroom on the third floor, i
He was near the head of the line when it
reaclic^ the window. There iie stopped. i
Boy Stays to Help. I
"I want to help you. teacher," he burst
And he remained in the smoke on the
Inside of the window assisting his little
girl companions over tlie window sill and
on to the platform of the tire escape outside.
Not until the last member of his
class was outside did lie finally crawl!
through the window from the smoke-filled I
room into the fresh air. Kollowing hint |
-Miss AlcKee and Miss Stoneroad another'
teacher, made their way down the fire
escape, last out of the building.
Despite the smoke in the corridors..tluekenlng
every moment, all the teachers
directed pupils carefully and quickly
downstairs to safety, reassuring those few
children who showed sign of fright.
.Janitor -May was about the busiest he
ever has been for about three minutes 1
after the fire was discovered. While work-1
ing on the third floor he detected the odor
of smoke. Fie looked over the banister to <
see clouds of it pouring 191 from the lower
floors. '
He dropped his t?nls. seized the fire ex- <
tinguisher on the third floor and hastened
down to tight fire. On the second and
first floors were other fire extinguishers.
He picked up all three and ran. five steps
at a time, to the basement. J
May Puts Out Fire.
The smoke was dense now, but May <
soon located the flames. Playing the j
chemicals on it. lie was soon able to stamp
It out. His quickness in getting the fire
extinguishers into action, all the teachers 1
declared, prevented a much larger and
more dangerous blaze.
The tire was confined to a quantity of
cornstalks and dried grasses that had (
Im?cii used in the kindergarten. While
being carried by pupils from the kindergarten
room on the first floor to the hasomont
some of the long stalks caught lire
from a burning gas jet against which they
accidentally struck.
Not knowing that they were afire, the
boy who was helping the teacher in the
work placed them against a wooden partition
and went back upstairs for more.
A few minutes later the blaze was dis- j
covered by some workmen in the base- j
rnent. They began to shout. Miss Collins, ;
the principal, heard the cries, discovered!
the smoke and sounded the lire alarm. |
, The damage was slight.
