"Rites Planned For 9 Firemen

Colleagues to Join in Tribute to Heroes

Last honors will be accorded by fellow members of the Fire Department to the nine victims of last Thursday's chemical tank explosion at the Charles W. Berg Laboratories, 1829-29 N. 5th st. Arrangements were made yesterday by a committee which includes Deputy Fire Commissioner George E. Hink, Deputy Police Commissioner Albert E. DuBois and Joseph M. Clarke, assistant to the chief of the Fire Department. All members belonging to the companies of each of the victims will attend, along with ranking officers of the police and fire departments.

Hundreds Volunteer
Hundreds of men from companies who did not lose personnel in the blast have volunteered to work in place of the deceased men's comrades who would normally be scheduled for duty at the time of the funerals, said Clarke. The fire and police details will form in double file near the church or place of the service. They will then open ranks and the body. Escorted by color guard and bugler, will pass between the files of their comrades at salute. Each of the city's firehouses will remain draped in black and have its flag at half-staff for 30 days.
