DALLAS, Ore., Jan. 8. (spec
lal to The Statesman) The an
nual meeting and banquet of the
Dallas fire department was held
last evening. VirgU Ballantyne
was elected president of that or
ganization. Fred B. West treas
urer, and Walter Craven secre
tary. Following the business
meeting a banquet was held at
the Hotel Gail, at which, the
mayor, members of the city coun
cil. the newspaper editors and
few invited guests were present.
After a sumptlous feed or three
courses talks were made by dif
ferent members of the fire de
partment and the city council, in
rprard to the nurchase of new
fire fighting equipment for the
city of Dallas. Many plans were
taken up and stecussed, but no
act'.on taken on any one plan.
That the clt7 is in need of ad
ditional fire protection is a fact
known to members of both bodies
and it Is to be hoped that before
long a way will be seen toward
financing a movement to get auto
drawn equipment, as practically
all members of the council are In
favor of this type of fire fighting
One of the able talkers at tne
banquet was the chief of the
Corvailis fire department, who
brought out many fine points iu

the department here or the mem
bers of the council.
