May 17: Specialist Visits Chief Fred Jesser
For the first time, The Virginian learned today from one of the fire department boys that Chief Fred Jesser is suffering painfully as a result of Friday’s fire at the O’Gara Hotel, his eyes, especially giving him much trouble as a result of the hot ashes he encountered in constant exposure that day.

The chief is confined to his home and an eye specialist will visit him this afternoon.

We believe that those of us who appreciate the hard work the chief does at every fire would give him much pleasure by dropping by for a word of encouragement.
