Special training in fire fighting is being given all over the coun- try. There are different types of fires, many having their origin in the home owner's carelessness, and therefore preventable. But once fire starts, every man, woman or, child should know what to do to : combat it immediately. There are three different kinds ‘of fire ~— insurance experts call i them class lClass A fires are “A” “B” and “Cu those which occur in ordinary combustible ma- wood, etc. Class B fires are fires in inflammable liquidsw—greasc and the like. Class , C fires are those which break out. equipmcntv-wwiring, . in electrical : etc. lit—«provided you’re not afraid of icausing damage by soaking the :furnishings in your home. If it is a Class A fire that you’re fighting, use water and plenty of When you come to Class B fires, you have a much more difficult, {problem because a stream of wa- ter may do more harm than good. Such fires usually involve oil or‘ grease in some sort of containmg This type of inflammable liuuid fire has to be smothered. You can do this smothering physically for instance, by using a man- ket or a pan cover. do it more scientifically with special extinguishing equipment. You may use water on oil-soak- ed rags or a small oil spill fire. but it's best to-use a fine spray of water, not a heavy stream. The Class C fire-~~»the electrical fix-cumust also be smothered; but' here you have an added hazard. 11' you squirt a hose on burning the electric cur- rent will run back along the wa— ter stream and may knock you off your feet: if the voltage is high, it may kill you. So you must use. an extinguishing agent which will not carry an electrical charge. War Dept.

Fighting Tricks: Trucks and buses subject to the. ' regulations of the Interstate Com- l merce Commission are less of a problem from the fireman’s point; of view than the private passen- [ger car, Fire Chief Dean Carmen [declared today. Motor vehicles i ,classified as common and private carriers are required by law to be equipped with fire extinguishers,. but no such rules exist for the private car owner. “Fires in motor vehicles areire- sponsible for about ten per cent of all fire alarms,” the Chief said. [ ,“It is not uncommon for a gen-l ‘eral alarm to be sounded, calling [Knight wggests three or four pieces of fire ap— paratus, for a burning car. When we get there, a squirt from a fire extinguisher or a burst from a fog nozzle on a booster line. puts the fire out. The operator of the car could do the same thing him- self with less delay, if he carried a fire extinguisher on his car. Fire Prevention Week is a good time to recall this fact to mind." causes of car fires as breaks in the gasoline line, faulty ignition “Another reason for carrying] extinguishers on motor vehicles,” the Chief explained, “is the assist~ ance motorists may be able to give those trapped in car acol— dents. There are countless cases on record where fires have been extinguished and lives saved by persons happening upon other motorists involved in wrecks. All fire apparatus and most police cars are equipped with fire ex- tinguishers of one kind or another for Just such emergencies, and the more private cars so equipped the better. Naturally, these ex- tinguishers have to be cared for and kept in working order.” with FIRE INSURANCE ‘ l Your livestock, feed and grain, i bu‘ldings and homes are too i valuable to risk losing in flames When Protection through insur— ance is so cheap. l Take Out the, Right Policy ‘ Today »—» see A.

This year, in View of the em- ergency, patrons are also asked to write to the. boys in the na- tion's service. “Inasmuch as national defense transcends all government and public activities throughout the nation," Postmaster Miss Jessie “the thought which is appropriately offered in this connection is to encourage people in civilian life to write let-- ters frequently to the young men who are undergoing military and naval training. These youths should be told they do not stand" alone, but have the support of the home folks who are purchas— ling defense bonds and stamps and v are working in defense industries turning out the sinews of defense.” l EARLY RESIDENT DIES IN TACOMA Mrs. Elva Getchell, 89, an early~day resident of Shelton] [died in Tacoma Thursday, where she had been residing ever since leaving here around the time of Washington’s statehood.
