THOMAS, WOODFORD & BRYAN CLANGING EIRE ENGINE IS DAN GER WARNING Fire hydrants and clanging fire bells should be safety warnings to cautious motorists. Keep away from fire hydrants. Not only because it's against the lav to park close to them. In case of fire nearby, a car too near a hydrant must be. moved and the firemen are not slow or careful about it either. Locked cars, pushed away in a hurry, are in danger of injury. Fire bells heard while driving are a warning to move to the right im mediately and stop. Never look to see which way the fire trucks are coming. Stop immediately and there wilrte no accident. Even where there is no ordinance against parking in narrow streets, jt would-be safer for auto drivers not to park there. Fire routes are usu ally not through narrow streets, but anything might happen to force fire trucks to take such streeti. And' a' fast-moving engine i a narrow street irats the 'cars, cursed alongside ,in danger of destruction. T, DEATH OF A. T.
