This is one of a series detailing the acts of all 43 men j nominated for the honors the ' 10 received. The apprehension of an armed man by two alert policemen re sulted in the solution of more than 50 housebreaking cases in the District and Maryland. The arrest was made by Pvts. Walter A. Phillips and William P. Finnin after a “prolonged, persistent and methodical search, climaxed by alertness and quick action by the officers.” Shortly after 8 p.m. on Sun day, October 18, 1953. Pvts. Phillips and Finnin received a call while cruising in Scout 81 to go to 3121 Cleveland avenue N.W. for a housebreaking report. When they arrived there, the complainants. Mr. and Mrs. George M.

Representatives of the Oil Heat Institute and the Mer chants and Manufacturers’ Asso ciation appeared before the Commissioners and said a recent amendment to the building code, allowing use of “Type B flues," would accommodate only gas heating systems and prevent conversion to coal, oil or other fuels. A. Graham Shields, managing director of the institute, urged that the regulations be changed to allow use of “Type A flues” only. He charged the recent amend ment “does in effect officially create a monopoly for the Wash ington Gas Light Co., in that they, and only they, can serve the home with a Type B flue."
