ing. Not even the militiamen could
have outdone them, last Thursday
night, when the first fire-drill was
given at Newberry Residence.
The only distinct difference between
the troops and the army of girls was
that there was whispering and gigg-
ling here and there, in spite of the
fact that they were warned to pre-
serve a dignified silence. The drill
went exceedingly -well, nevertheless,
and the girls are now putting in their
spare moments sliding down brass
poles and otherwise preparing them-
selves for the lives of a fire man, so
the critics figuratively aver.

Gordon Willard Loses Life While
Swi mning Below Scl Dam;
Companion Saved
Gordon Willard, 25, a machinist em-
ployed by the Superior manufactur-
ing company, was drowned Sunday
afternoon while swimming in the Hur-
on river just below the Scio dam while
his wife and a party of friends looked
on, unable to render assistance.
Caught in a treacherous undertow,
Willard was dragged down in about
nine feet of water, while his brother-
in-law, Alfred Keubler, who was also
caught in the current, was more lucky
and was saved only by the pulmotor
which the Eastern Michigan Edison
company rushed to the scene.
Willard and Keubler, accompanied
by their wives and George Barden,
had left the city early Sunday morn-
ing in Keubler's automobile for a
day's outing. They stopped at the
Scio dam and the young men decided
to take a swim. Entering the river at
a point some distance from the dam,
and finding the bottom not very good
they waded upstream to a point just
below the dam. Here they waded into
a deep hole in which there is a very
strong current. Willard became en-
tangled in the weeds on the bottom
and, in trying to free him, Keubler al-
so nearly lost his life. Coroner Burch-
