S. TORPEDO boats made two daring dashes into Subic Bay to sink Jap supply vessels, hit another enemy ship in Manila Bay raid. ON BATAAN PENINSULA, a mountainous, jungled region half the size of Rhode Island, Gen. Douglas MacArthur has commanded American and Filipino troops in a stand rivaling any battle.in U. S. history for intensity and heroism. MacArthur's men have stood off land, sea and air assaults ) with continued tenacity, slowly retiring toward the rocky fortress of Corregidor Island, supply and communications base protecting their rear. GUNS «f Corregidor and other U. S. forts dueled with Jap artillery across Manila Bay near Ternate, blasted barges lined up for invasion. DEATH IN. THE NIGHT came to barsreloads of Jap invaders in one of Bataan's historic encounters, MacArthur's "air force"—a solitary P-40 pursuit plane- sighted approaching barges off the west coast one night and flashed a warning. American artillery and bombs from the plane smashed and fired the barges, stopped them all short of shore. In the morning there were dead Jap soldiers and smoking ruins of barges on the beach. "A BRAVE LOT, not afraid of death," one chronicler called the men with MacArthur. Pressed by 200,000 Japs, they have battled blitz in the jungles of Bataan with the strategy of American frontiersmen. When the enemy charged with planes, tanks, t r o o p s, U. S. forces have retired to prepared shelters in the mountain forests, only to emerge, make a stand, then counter-attack and drive the wearying foe back.. Anti-aircraft units have bagged many a Jap plane, asked for more; accurate artillery fire has blasted out enemy positions before the attackers:could get moving; and plucky Americans and Filipinos still asked to go on the offensive after two months of pounding.

First Division of Defense Home Units Must- Form Protective Wing for Area The first division o£ volunteer activities In Civilian Defense thnt is first to function is the protective wing. The enrolled volunteers in tFils clnssifica- tion must be thoroughly trained and must bo available to act in emergencies. "Volunteer" is used herein as a person who gives service without enumeration. The protection division of the Civilian Defense Council includes the following volunteer worker group: Air Raid Warden; Auxiliary Police, Bomb Squads, Auxiliary Firemen, Fire Watchers, The Medical Corps, Rescue Squads, Nurses' Aides Corps, Staff Corps, Messengers, Drivers Corps, Emergency Food and Housing Corps, Decontamination Corps, Demolition and Clearance Crews, Road Repair Creks. To adequately staff this protection division there must be in the City of Hope, alone, 796 thoroughly trained volunteer citizens. To nc- hicve this goal approximately 3 or 4 times this number must be registered so thnt qualified volunteers can be selected and trained. So thnt nil citizens might thoroughly understand the functions of the volunteer group enumerated above the "Icmpstoad County Defense Council will release to the local press CJich day an explanation of one of the groups. Readers lire urged to snve .his scries of portrayals so that they can be a source of quick reference as to the training nnd expected functions of each enumerated division of the protective wing of the Hcmp- 'itcad County Defense Council. Today's release deals with the first group, the Air Raid Wardens. The remainder will follow each day in :hc order enumerated above. The Air Raid Warden is to many people the personal representative of Civilian Defense. He is not a policeman and does not have police powers, but ho usually functions as a iarl of the police force and with its help. An Air Raid Warden's post is organized to serve a unit of 500 people. It is accessible and plainly marked. Since at least one person is always on duty, four Air Raid Wardens arc usually assigned to each post. The Air Raid Warden's duties include: (1) Observing lighf.s showing during a blackout and warning occupants of the building; (2) directing persons in the street to shelter; (3) reporting to the control center any fallen bombs; (4) reporting fires to the control center and assisting in fighting incendiary bombs as soon as they fall; (5) detecting and reporting to the control center the presence if gas; (G) administering elementary first aid; (7) assisting victims in damaged buildings. The Air Raid Warden is chosen carefully. The position of Air Raid Warden may be filled cither by a man or woman, provided the person chosen is capable of performing the duties. One of the most important duties is to set an example of controlled activity and cool efficiency under all conditions. Training is given all Air Raid Wardens in gas and fire-bomb defense, first aid, and general organisation of airoid services. The stripes in the insignia of Air Raid Wardens signify "many duties." • • ^ -^— • Photo-Fireman Shoots Hot Pictures NASHVILLE, Tenn.-('/Pj-Pipcman James "Hot" Don-is of the Nashville Fire Department goes to a lot of fires in his off hours.
