PROCLAMATION The anniversary of the great Chi cago fire,' October 9, has come to be generally observed throughout the United States and Canada as "Fire Prevention Day," jthe observance of which should be the occasion for a ! concerted effort to reduce the stu pendous loss of life and property by fire. For the past few years fire 1nat on the North American 'continent have been steadily increasing until last year they reached the $500,000, 000 mark. To this loss Kansas con tributed. 16,616,117, the greatest fire loss the state has ever suffered in a single year. According to the most conservative esimates at least seventy-five per cent of this appalling loss was preventable. v Therefore: In orden to bring about a concerted observance of Fire Pre-1 vention Day in Kansas, which occurs fhis year on Sunday, .1 Henry J. Al-1 lien, do hereby designate Monday,'! October 10, 1921, Fire Prevention ! Day, and urge that every citizen of the state join in its observance. Inasmuch as the ninth falls on Sunday, I am appealing to the min isters over the state to devote at least a few minutes of their time on this day to this far-reaching sub ject. The co-operation of the schools, women's clubs, civic and business or ganizations throughout the state is requested and urged in making this, the semi-centennial anniversary of the Chicago fire, an epoch in the an nals of fire prevention. IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed the Great Seal of the State of Kansas. Done at the State Capitol in the City of Topeka, this twentieth day of September, 1921.
