Grass fires most often carelessly or
thoughtlessly set are costing the citi

cessary expense, according to Mayor
Neill A. McFr.dyen. "Such fires dur
ing the past five or six weeks have cost
the taxpayers about $100," he explain
ed. The fire department has arranged
to have one or more men available to
assist property holders in burning off
grash and weedy lots, the Mayer stat

Mr. McFariyen stated that a special
