They are shown here examining an inhalator. Confirmation of the promotions is due in July, following a six months' probationary period.

FIREMAN HAS REAL BEGINNER'S LUCK: Ypsilanti Fireman W. Robert Smith (seated at left with cards), who learned to play cribbage less than three weeks ago from another fireman, O. Shreve Waldenmyer (left), last night held the maximum 29-point cribbage hand. Although Ypsilanti firefighters play cribbage almost constantly when not on duty, none of them could recall anyone ever holding the "dream" hand of a jack and three fives with an extra (cut) five in the same suit as the jack. Loser of the abbreviated game was Donald R. Green (right), while Lt. Aaron Carson (center, background) witnessed the rarity at the Fire Hall.
