Schriver ap peared before the board, speaking on city welfare. He asked the co operation of the board and express ed pleasure at their attitude toward the administration. Mr. Schriver stated that he would ask nothing from the board in the way of sup port that was not for the city's benefit. The campaign for the decrease in the insurance classification has been brought about through the purchase by the city of the 65-foot aerial ladder truck and the com plete motorization of the fire de partment which it is thought en titles Rock Island to a lower fig ure. The city is now in class ZVt. and a raise in the classification to 4 is a possibility, according to Com missioner Martin T. Rudgren. This would be exactly contrary to the efforts being expended.
