Chairman Fleming.  He has moved that, because this is the President’s birthday, because of his interest in this program of fire prevention, this Conference send him its congratulations, felicitations, and wishes for many more happy birthdays.  All in favor signify by saying “aye.”

{The motion was put to a vote and was carried unanimously.}

Chairman Fleming.  Now we are ready for the presentation of the action program which will, we trust, summarize our conclusions and lay the groundwork for future action back in our home communities.  I regret to report that Mr. W. E. Reynolds, Commissioner of Public Buildings and chairman of the Conference Coordinating Committee, who was to have presented the program, is absent because of illness.  He is convalescing nicely and should be able to return to his desk shortly.

Before he became ill, Mr. Reynolds did much hard work on preliminary arrangements for the Conference, and I feel that much of the success of the meeting is due to his efforts.

To present the program of Mr. Reynolds, I have the pleasure of introducing the Honorable Louis Johnson of Clarkesburg, W. Va., a member and vice-chairman of the Committee on Laws and Law Enforcement, a former national commander of the American Legion.  Colonel Johnson holds a Legion of Honor decoration for services in the First World War.  He served as Assistant
