THE WASHINGTON TJMES; FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1915. "
REAL TEST SHOWS MRS. CRONAN TELLS LOCAL AND N. Y. FINANCIAL NEWS 18 Emergency Corps Easily Con quer Firemen's Worst Ene ' mies Work in Helmets. NEW YORK. Nov. S "The es tablishment of Iho emergency rescue compayn. known officially aa Hescuie Company No. 1. la the moat progressive thins: that haa been done In the New York Klrc Department In many yenra, aald Ilobert Adamson. tho lire commis sioner. In iH'cusslng tho report that a second one of these companies waa to be eatabllahed In. Manhattan In tho near future "But." ho continued, "the scope of Its work Is so novel from tho depart ment viewpoint that tho present com pany must be put to greater and more varied teBta than It haa been subjected to before we will consider adding a. second rescue company to the force. That wo will have a second rescue com pany established downtown, howe'.er, In the future may bo set down aa a certainty, unless something extra crdlnarv hannena. "Not that fheso men In Rescue Com-, panv No. 1 huven't come up to our ex-, pectatlons nor justltled themselves ln tho five montha and a half the com-. panv ha been In existence. Chief Kenton told me the other day the work the men dirt it one lire In New Chim bers street not long ago, when they went down Into a cellar and cut off a leaking gas main that had Knocked out a dorn men. more than paid for Inn entire cost of the company up to tho present. Hut the department has to view an experiment such as this from a good ang!n before It puts the seal of approval on It by extending (is cope. Establish "Smoke Call." "As If works now the new emergency rescue company, whoso headquarters are In Great Jones street. Just off Broadway, responds iu all second alarms In Manhattan sent out from be low Fifty-ninth street, and all third alarms from below 1.5th street. In ad dition we have established a new signal known aa the 'smoke rail' for Rescue cbmpany No. 1. to which it will re spond anywhero In the greater city of New York, although up the present no such call has been sent In from out side the limits of Manhattan since It was established. "Up to the present, although tho com pany has 'made good, ti haa not tc,n so hardlv pressed .that- we need to organize a second company. That is for the future to decide. As I said bo fore, however, further tests of the work will have. to be made. It took us a year to find the right kind of 'smoko helmet" with which to equip the men and I sent a man all over Kuropo to Invcstlaate helmeta before the ono we wanted was found. Fire Fighters' Enemies. "In fighting fires the two greatest enemies of our department are tnicK, heavy smoke and fumes comlnc from acids nnd gas. Before we established this emergency rescue company the firemen had to measure the distance at which they fought a fire by their abil ity to withstand this smoke and gab or acid fumes. Such smoko as camo from a fire in tho hold of n ship, from burning sugar, from an explosion iff benzine, or what mav he raiirri n lit Are," either kept them at too great a uuiance lor reany eiiectlvc work or else knocked them out so rapidly and In such numbers as to undo all their bravery and willingness to go Into tho danger belt. "The smoke masks' have enabled tho men In the emergency rescue company, to go Into such places and stay for half an hour at a time without trou ble. Since tho company was organized only one man has been knocked out, and that waa due to the fact that it was the first time he went into tho black smoko from an explosion of ben zine, and then ho came around all right In a minute or two. He went ahead too fast, that was all. While the compenv was In training prelimi nary to leng formally oikhii zed, Cnp- tain McFlllgott worked in a smnkv nrn In his 'smoke mask for seventy-five minutes, which Is the record thus far. As a rule, they get results long before that. "Not long a?o we had an 'ammonia, fire' In a big storage warehouse over on the Wet Slt'e The rescue com-, pany went In, found the leak, and stop-. pea it inside nair an nour, wnue tne other firemen could not got within a block of the plant owing to the fumes. Chief Kenlon told me that a few years' ago they had a similar break In the same warehouse, and It took the dew partment six hours to get the best of It. The difference between the sneed with which the emergency company stopped that leak and the time it took the un protected firemen to stop tho previous one meant an enormous saving to that warehouse. Saves Many Lives. "There was a bad 'acid fire' up In Fifty-eighth street the other morning. Several firemen were knocked cut be fore the emergency squad arrived on the scene. They located the troublo and Stopped the leak or the ncld In tort order without any loss of life. Yet at an cxaetly similar 'acid fire' in Detroit not long ago fourteen per sons lost their lives. "These 'acid tires,' caused by the hurstlng of ammonia tanks and pipes, have burned the bodies of many members of the rescue company. I havo Jui-t succeeded in eliminating this hazard bv securing an overall that will protect the men's bodies Just as me -smoke neimets do their shoulders, necks and heads. Thesi new overalls are made like the ones worn ty trout 11hormcn when wadlnsr In streams or pools, and we hove found they are absolutely Impervious to the ammonia fumes. "All In all I can safely say that no one company In the fire department is so valuable as this ono, and we can all be proud of the record It has mado during Its existence. Scratch Front of Head, Not Back, to Aid Thought PHILADELPHIA. Nov.

Some homo-made biscuits were lven him and a few minutes later he acted like shaking with sobs. "What seems to be the matter, my tor manT" asked the tender-hearted hodsewlfc. "Aro you thinking of other daysT" "Yes, lady," answered the hobo, with another quiver of his weary frame. "Of dear friends and relatives.
