Must Certify to
Claims by Firemen.
To head off any possible conspiracy
on the part of physicians and members
of the fire department to present false
sick claims to the fire department sick
benefit and pension fund committee,
the committee at a meeting today will
pass a rule requiring the sickness cer
tificate of each applicant for benefits
to be signed by the City Physician. The
proposal is to have the City Physician
make the first call on the sick man and
sign the certificate. After the first
call the fireman may call any phy
sician he desires.
City Auditor Barbur, who ia a mem
ber AT the benefit committee, says the
action is not being taken because of
any question as to the propriety of any
sick claims presented so far, but Is
merely a precautionary step. At the
meeting today sick claims aggregating
$186.60 and disability claims amounting
to $228.91 will be up for consideration.
