Kautz, another fifty- year member, recalled the 16-foot pumper which required eight men on each side to operate. He told of the early morning fire which threatened the old Mount Pulaski House when the department was called out about six o'clock in the morning with the terperature be- low zero. In fact, it was so cold that the water froze in the hose, and the fire went out of its own accord, probably due to extreme dampness. He also told of the de- partment being one of the first in the state and of its part in helping organize the state association. "The members were so enthused over their organization," said Mr. Kautz, "that they paid dues to belong." The citizens also contrib- uted as much as $4,000 a year to support their hose team which won the state championship three times. Chris said he didn't know just what awade the boys so keen about belonging to the department unless it was due to the fact that the ladies seemed to prefer the fire laddies in their uniforms. R. D. Aitchison and Henry Vol- le, members of the city council, and H. J. Wible made short talks, expressing the appreciation of the comanunity for their fine services. The ladies of the Lake Fork community sent the department an anniversary cake as a token of the goodwill, and appreciation of their community for the services rendered them on various occa- sions.
