One of tile above mentioned houses was beyond help by the time the alarm could be sent in to town, and the department could make the long run. The other was equally far away, but at least part of this house could have been saved, if water had been available It should be pointed out that city equipment is de- signed to fight fire in urban districts, where there are hydrants supplying water. Arlington's fire department is willing to make the rural runs, and at times when water supply is available, ]fflave been able to render good service, or when they have been able to get there in time to be of assistance with the limited supply of 150 gallons of water carried in the booster tank. Fire trucks designed for rural service are usually equipped with large water tank and pump. Rural calls exceed those originating within the town of Arlington, so it would seem good sense on the part of rural residents to give some thought to fire protection. and to provide a water supply for this program. While the Arlington trucks are designed to use wa ter from hydrants, they can also draft water from streams, ditches, reservoirs, wells, ,etc. However, the equipment is heavy, and if a creek or ditch is depended for supply a roadway should be developed to it. Also if the well supply is sufficient, the water should be not more than 12 or 14 ft. below the pump on the truck. If there is a large storage tank carrying several hundred gallons of water, it would be wise to have a pipe onto which the pumper could couple. We would suggest a rural fire district be' formed, but pending this we are informed that Chief Frank Ar- not and the Arlington Fire Department will be glad to advise rural communities or residents on the matter of water supply, and fire prevention. O' 'TWAS A FINE IDEA Vie Johnson, chairman of the Park Committee of the Arlington City Council, had a splendid idea--to pro- vide Arlington with an outdoor skating Pink. During the cold spell Vic had the city crew put up a low dike on the playfield below the terraces at Terrace Park. Then the bowl thus created was filled with water, and it was expected the next morning a fine smooth sheet of ice would be ready for the younger set to stage the Arlington Iceeapades of 1951--then the temperature rose and the water seel ed away. The bowl was filled again and there is hope (on the part of the small fry) that it will freeze again. Well, anyway, Vie, it was a fine idea, and the next time we have more than a three-day winter let's try it[ again. We re sure it will be safe, and afford a lot ofl sport. Eagles Win Again, Defeat Edmonds Playing at Arlington Tuesday night, the Arlington Eagles dis- played their best game of the season in downing the Edmonds Tigers 51 to 37. Arlington dam- |anted the game completely and led throughout the game. The Eagles were definitely on and the game was a reversal of form showed in the Mt. Vernon tilt.: The win gave Arlington a G ze won four lost record in the N.W. League anff a tight hold on fourth place.

Bergam connected for 15 points, high for both teams, be- the Eagles journey to Sedro-J Woolley with a chance to gain on the leaders. However, Sedro is always tough on their home floor and Coach Ludwick is look- for no soft touch.

Rev. Roney now puts the same enthusiasm and fervor into his ministry that he once put into his business, and as a result is in demand in all parts of the country as evangelist. o Scablands are areas stripped of topsoil by flood.

A1 has kept pace with progress over the last twenty-four years He was first to give Arlington a drive-in service station. He has continued to improve his station, and now has just completed additions that give him more gas storage, an additional hoist for his grease and lubri- cation room, and a heating plant to make for comfort throughout the station. In addition the entire grounds about the station have been paved, thus presenting a pleasing appearance to the southeast corner of Olympic and Division. ject again. It's been so long since the Fire Department has had to answer an alarm that was anything but a chimney fire, that when the whistle blew those three times the first part o the week, Warren Perrigo immedi- ately upon arrival at the fire put up the ladder, and after a nard struggle finally managed to get the chimney fire out. This was quite a remarkable feat when you stop to consider that the rest of the house burned down. Seriously, however, it is quite tragic when you have to stand and watch a family lose their home, which you would have been able to save if there had been water available, which is so often unavailable at coun- try fires. It sure is hard to jump out of a warm bed these early, cold mornings to go to a fire, and if Mary didn't go out and start the car, and have it partly warm while I was d~essing, it would be worse yet.
