PAGE SIGHT How 'Net' of Civilian Protect U.S. HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Lookouts Will Against Air Invasions 1 FT. BRAGG, N. C.—A vast network of civilian observers is being planned to give instant warning of first sight or sound of invading airplanes. That such a .network will be effec- ,tlve is the most important lesson of air defense maneuvers just ended in 'eastern North Carolina. ^ Observers scattered over 39 coun- 1 ties from Roanoke Island to below Wilmington, 200 VnSles south, caught ..the sound or sight of every one of 33 •bombing and attack planes, and re- .ported them so quickly to "defense" headquarters that 31 of the 33 were '"intercepted" by pursuit planes, and al were subject to heavy mock antiaircraft gunfire.

Therefore it is all the more necces- 'ry to pick up such ; an invading force (mediately at the coast or border sine a 200-mile-an-hour' speeds, every second counts- in intercepting the invader. • ; . The first organization attempt to meet this problem was the North Carolina maneuvers.' The problem was to defend Ft Bragg against an "attack" to be launched from some unknown point at sea.- For two months, the ai'my-organized a "civilian observation force" .volunteers who would get up at 4 a.m., listen for planes, and flash the warning. Much of the land is marshy and sparsely populated, and 15 separate telephone companies serve the district These were welded temporarily into a s ingle system. On a moonlit morning at 4 a.m. cyme the 'zero hour." Four flights of planes were somewhere out at sea, coming in to "attack Ft. Bragg. Flash! Planes Attacking At defense headquarters, officers sat before master maps. Nearby was a giant map of the eastern North Carolina ara, with light bulbs marking observation posts and positions of defense planes and anti-aircraft art- illary. At five minutes after 4 a red light flashed. It indicated post "Lisbon 44," an isolated spit of sand on Cape Look- aut. "Three planes heard— flying high—direction west." The message came from Capt. Fred Gilliken, Coast Guard, off icier at Point Lookaul, one of the observers. £oon more red lights flashed. The direction of the attack came apparent. Then a green light flashed and kept flashing. That meant that defense pursuit planes, rising from conceajcd airfields, and had intercepted 'the "attacking" planes and were, theoretically, fighting them off. ;J Almost immediately lights began to flash on another course inland die the women who wait at home while their men shove out to sea in Uncle Sam's trim fighting ships. Over and over in their minds they see, a speeding plane fail in mid-air, spin downward, miss the floating carrier, plunge into bottomless waters. And then at last the real time does come. And what do they do, these Navy women? You'll find the answer in one of the most unusual, gripping serials ever written, LOVERS AWEIGH innings- Monday, November 7 in star from Roanoke Island. A third "attacking" force was quickly shown mov ing inland from below Wilmington. Loud speakers boomed with the code numbers of various observers anil their messages "Planes high east . . . Plane low west . , . Plane overs- head." Within minutes the green lights began to blink as squadrons of defense planes made contact with attackers. "Attackers Repulsed A second board showed the immediate objective area at Ft. Bragg. Merc n white flash would show an observer had picked up aircraft. Then red lights flashed, one, Iwo, three, five of them as unli-aircraft batteries went into action. Other lights flashed as the .50-calibcr anti-air-craft machine guns began to blaze. Eighty military planes roared through the air. At 8 n. m. came "Cease firing." Observers had sent in 285 reports, which reached defense headquarters in tin average of a little more than two minutes. Fouf of thet six skeletonized anti-air craft regiments of the army were centered on the "defense guns pumping 25 shells a minute to a height of 18,000 feet. All were heavily cainoul- flaggcd, and one was mounted in a !(>!,' cabin from which the roof could be lifted as t^e gun went into action. Success of the civilian volunteer alarm system shows clearly one rolo which civilians will be expected to play in air defense. statistics show that 85 per cent of the children in reform schools never attended Sunday School.
