THE ENQUIRER, CINCINNATI, TUESDAY, JULY 7, 1942 Air Raid Signal System Is First Defense Need, Officials Agree DIN FAILED EMPLOYEES SUBSCRIBE FOR BONDS RATIONING In July 4 Trial Now To Be Handled 18 WW As Adequate Warning . For Cincinnatians. Many Thought It Ordinary Fire Truck Clatter, Is Word To Conference. The most urgent requirement of the Civilian Defense Corps in this region is an adequate warning system, officials of the corps and members of the Hamilton County Defense Council's Executive Committee agreed at their weekly conferences yesterday. Harry Jj Gilligan, Commander of the Cincinnati Citizens Defense Corps, declared emphatically: "The din which was used in the mobilization test on the Fourth of July will not do. We nedc a positive signal, one that every citizen Will, understand means an air raid Warning. It may be necessary to recommend that the fire and police departments discard the use or sirens during the war ana go back to the bell warning. "But in order for the Citizens Defense Corps to function properly we must have a signal which ail Citizens can interpret promptly." - Gilligan and City Manager C. O. Sherrill agreed that the 20 sirens recommended in the Defense Corps budget would solve the problem, if the sirens could be obtained. PRIORITIES RAISE DOL'BT. There is some doubt whether priority orders can be obtained for the sirens, however, even when the 14,500 included in the budget is available. Corps officials agreed generally that it would do no good to magnify the "din" used in the Fourth of July test. In many places citizens thought the noise was nothing more than fire trucks on their way to a fire. Certain officials charged that the signal used July 4 was "too Blow." They recalled that the "biggest noise" ever heard in Cincin-natinati when the Armistice was Signed ending World War I was nearly an hour; in reaching its peak. It was stated that it took time to get all the signals going last Saturday, and that even with all signals going, there were many parts of Cincinnati where the sounds could not be heard. "We must have a positive signal, Buch as three short blasts and one long blast," Gilligan said, so that every citizen of Cincinnati can be educated to recognize it as a warning that Axis planes are bound for this locality. The noise used in tests so far might be interpreted to mean anything." AGREE ON NEED. Virtually the entire session of the Defense Council's Executive Ccm- mittee at the Hotel Gibson yesterday was devoted to a discussion of the mobilization test. The 20 members present agreed generally that a more adequate warning system must be installed If the Defense Corps is to function In time of emergency. . Morris Edwards, executive director of the Defense Council, said the committee was not certain that an adequate warning system could be installed for $14,500, even if Sirens were to be had. Many suggestions were made one that river boats be organized to aid in the warning, using the round house whistles formerly used to call the wrecking crews of various rail-Ways. . No definite action was taken, but committeemen agreed that a solution must be found soon, and that a fixed signal and not a "din" was required to rouse the populace. Members said the ringing of church bells was "woefully inadequate," and that, if used late at night, would not rouse the population or warn the people of approaching danger. m wmk y g p 5-51 . o o a " n 1 1 ? n r. 1 ry Jo Hit od M a m , , T' lllllirr MI1MIIIIMI :.

Nichols, Chairman of the Waste Materials Conservation Committee of Hamilton County, Urged all Cincinnatians yesterday to ready themselves for the kitchen grease salvage campaign which will get under way as soon as word to proceed is received from Washington. Dan Conway heads the committee in charge of collection, E. H. Hoelscher is technical adviser, and Mrs. Erwin Bosworth Is Chairman of the Women's Household Committee. Cooperation of soap manufacturers, renderers, housewives, and restaurants will be needed. Clear grease is an important material in the manufacture of glycerine, which is used in making explosives. War Bond Quota Increased For Cincinnatians In July; Additional $214,000 Sought Hamilton County's War Bond quota for July will be $8,714,000, in stead of $8,500,000 as previously announced, A. E. Anderson, Chair man of the County War Savings Staff, was informed yesterday. Anderson expressed confidence that the county would meet the extra $214,000 in bond investment required of it by the United States Treasury. "I am confident that the people of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will meet their responsibilities," Anderson said. "The generous response in the War Bond pledge campaign of June 28 indicates that the people of this community will do all within their means for the cause of victory. "Now that a definite quota has been assigned us, the next move is up to those who have signed pledges to invest regularly in war savings bonds. We are hoping that this will be a 100 per dent community of 10 per centers. It may be necessary for some of us to invest more than 10 per cent of our income in war bonds, If we can afford it, to bring up the average of those who cannot afford it. "The important thing now is that all of us back up our pledges by going to the post office, the bank, the building association, or any other agency taking orders for war bonds, and ordering our July quota." Hamilton County's quota is relatively higher than any other county in Ohio. Anderson said he had found, on inquiry, that quotas for Ohio counties were based on past performance. "We made the best showing among the counties in the past, and so more is expeted of us," he said. War bonds and stamp will be the prizes at the outing of the Findlay Market Association at Coney Island July 21, William Weslendorf, Chairman, announced yesterday.
