Chief Hopkins Doesn't
Get Wet at This Fire
Last Saturday morning a fire
at Beck Brothers Veneer plant
brought Zebulon’s new fire truck
into action for the second time
since it was purchased. The fire
truck was called about 3:00 a.m.
when workers failed to get a fire
burning under stored veneer under
Chief Willie B. Hopkins said it
“was the first fire I ever went to
that I didn’t get my clothes wet.”
With Night policeman Crowder
watching over the hose and em
ployees of the veneer plants hand
ling the nozzle, all Willie B. had
to do was supervise.
Firemen Race Around
But Never Find a Fire
Members of Zebulon’s Volunteer
Fire Department were accused of
joy-riding Monday afternoon when
they rode madly over south Zeb
ulon looking for a fire reported as
“Ivy Narron’s barn on the corner
of Horton Street.”

With Commissioner Barrie Davis
hanging on to the steering wheel,
I Asst. Fire Chief Carver Seawell
lon the rear, and Hilliard Greene
ringing the big bell and blowing
the siren, the red fire engine roar
ed over the streets futilely.
The fireman considered the mis
sion a success, however, when they
backed the truck into the narrow
door to the fire house without
scraping a fender.

That’s what "wise guys” of the 1880’s called the newfangled electric
service. And that’s all it might be today—l F...
IF people hadn’t risked their savings to start elec"-’" such
as yours, and to keep them growing.
IF others, often against expert advice, hadn’t poured out their energy
and time—to extend the wires farther and farther, make the service better
and better, bring the rates lower and lower.
They took the risks—they developed the skills—and everybody benefits.
That’s the way the American business system works.
Rich man’s toy? Today, electricity is everyman’s good right arm!
