Mrs. Soccino, in commenting on the use of volunteers as an in novation in Charles Town hospit al stated that such thought and planning is given to the training on the northern side of the fire hall. The new addition will be lo- cated in the areaway now exist- ing between the Fire Hall and St. Margaret's Building. Council referred the plans to the City Engineer for study and will await action on the matter until a report and recommendat- ion is received from the engin- eer. Mrs. Louise Langdon, owner of the St. Margaret's Building, ap- peared before Council in the in- terest of gaining information on the proposed addition to the fire hall and to determine what effect if any, it will have on her build- ing. Council passed an ordinance a- mending Chapter i7, Article 1, of the City Code which deals with cars being~left parked on Charles Town streets with the ignition keys still in them. The new ordinance prohibits car drivers, or those in charge of cars~ from leaving their car un- attended on the town's streets of highways without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition and removing the key and setting the brakes properly. The ordinance states that it shall be a misdemeanor offense for any person to violate the pro- visions of this ordinance and any Company; and Dean Hockensmith of the County State Road Com- mission, became members of the one gallon club.
