for the State
was the hand reel race
Championship. The entries were: The
Atlantic Hose Reel Team of New Berne,
and the Chieot'a Ilise Company of
Fay etteville. X'ew Berne won. The
time of the two teams respectively was
Ciil i and ti 1 seconds.
What was in complished in this race
was to inn 200 yards to the hydrant, lay
ilOO feci of hos uncouple, put on pipe
and show water. It can readily be seen
lioin the time made by i ach company
that there was rapid moving.
One curious feature of the reel contest
was that Winston never use I a hand
truck bifore and Greensboro never used a
horse truck before. Winston used Greens
boro's hand truck and Greensboro used
Winston's horse truck.
Creat agility was displayed in the lad
der contest?; the climbers went up like
.-quirrels while the ladders were lining
raKeil and reaching the top glided down
almost as rapidly as if falling.
Every race throughout was good, was
warmly contested and was watched with
iuterest and delight.
