By Associated Press.
CHICAGO, Nov. 28. — If a fire should
break out in Glencoe, a suburb of Chi
cago, the question of supremacy of two
rival factions, each claiming to be the

The old lire department organization
has been in existence for ten years.
A new one waa formed recently, but
the "old timers" refuse to be displaced
stnd declare they will "get to" the fire
apparatus in case of lire. The new
appointees say tho members of the old
department are incompetent and that
the new appointees, by virtue of their
permit from the vilago board, have
the sole right to tight fires in Glen
By the system in Glencoe, each mem- j
ber of the department is notified by
telephone of the fire by the operator :
at the Glencoe exchange when the
alarm hns been received. Each organ- ,
ization has posted a'llst of its mem
bers with their telephone numbers at
the office and hns given the operators
orders, not to call up the other de- 1
partment in case of fire. j
