At High Noon today the new fire tug JAMES BATTLE will be launched at Wyandotte. At 10:30 this morning Fire Commissioner Scotten's steam yacht WANDA will take thirty guests down, including the members and secretary of the commission, Chief Kendall and the battalion chiefs, a few city officials. Designer Frank E. Kirby and newspaper men. There will be no champagne christening. Instead a handsome flag bearing her name will be broken out on a staff at the stern.
