Moll hath no fire like that which
leaves women and chiloren burn
ed. Yet tears wash away no xouy,
lor the records show thai eacn year
searing flames gut some 4,500
schools and colleges; I cam uyun
such grim figures when, after the
Chicago holocaust, this, column
searched for the'eause and cost
and scope of industrial fires.'
Such conflagrations nave duzi-
sawed through an average of 13
schools a day 'for the past seven
years a total of more than 30,000
hnildines to which children come to
learn and sometimes stay to burn.
Younsters are aot fire proof, nei
ther are their buildings. ; ?
One source, whose saoness cost
it nothing of its authoritativeness,
reported in a survey that in 60
xehonla not Drotected by ordinary
snrinkler systems fire took the
lives of 827 pupils and teachers in
the nast 60 vears.
Yet in some 79 schools protect
ed by fitted overhead sprinkler
systems fires did little more than
KPnrch the furnishings. No lives
were lost. The flames, instead,
were snuffed out, drowned by the
protective gush of water from over overhead.
The recent bitter Chicago grim-
ness brings to mind a far less ma
cabre fire in Holy cross college,
Worcester. Mass.. in 1957. mere
in the second floor corridor oi
Fenwick Hall, some students were
smoking, even as some youngster
was in the unfortunate Chicago
school. In Fenwick Hall a ciga
rette was dropped in a basket of
lotning. Sprinklers poured it on.
The flames were out and the stu students
dents students back in when the fire fight
ers arrived in the building.
But schools were just a small
part of the tinder which went up
in '57. Last year over a billion dol dollars
lars dollars worth of prooerty burned.
Hardest hit were industrial plants.
Yet just the installation of one
snrinkler head would have put out
43 percent of the flames. And five
sprinklers would have doused 85
percent of the plant-gutting ures.
ror these -sprinkler systems are
things of science:; So sensitive are
xney xnar 1 in some ammunition
plants where tmoerahjres must
not vary more than a degree, lest
flash fire be unleashed, the light
of a struck match uncorks the
floods of quenching waters.
This literally life-giving science
is practiced by a union I had nev
er before encountered,; the united
Automatic Sprinkler Fitters and
Apprentices Local Union No. 669
It operates out of the national
Plumbers Assn. headquarters. It
has no offices of it's own for its

Hawaii and Alaska,' too. Its 3,300

JmouS with celebratlntr Christmas.
I would like to suggest that if next year's Santas want to
get lit up, please do it after working hours.

fi In these days of high-powered publicity and public rela rela-flons
flons rela-flons the srjirit of Christmas is certainly a far cry from the

When the Bishop of Myra spontaneously originated the

thought of getting personal satisfaction, by having it heralded

Why do Panama's taxi drivers cut In and out of traffic like
madmen, blowing their horns constantly? Are they crazy, or
i are they proud of their "world s worst drivers" rating?
i And do drivers who contribute to Central Avenue's park-

! cents instead of the 60 minutes shown on the dial? Let these

Why doesn't some forward-thinking adult, preferably a trim-
'med-down mother, establish a club called "Parents Of Chubby
.Children Who Don't Want Them To Grow Into Fat Slobs"?

blubber to keep trim, attractive and husbandized. Businessmen
are the tareet for steam baths, exercise clubs and the golf courses,
