FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,), COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Air Raid Would Be Just A Free Show To Blase Yorkers, Says Expert Her Dead Daddy Won If gS££~ \Vaiiress('«-frbm a'Times Square restaurant give a. preview of Miss New York's reaction to air raids. Emotions, left to right: derision, . . anger and'until her makeup is on, straight—indifference. •NEW YORK, <NEA>—Most New * Yorkers fully expect treir city to be. bombed before .'the war is over. If it comes," can the 7,649,000 Gothamiles "take it"? Dr -Thomas L. Garrett, nationally noted psychologist nods a vigorous "yes!". Dr. Garrett's qualifications to judge are 'particularly apropos. A World 'War 1 flyer, he is now treating aspiring flying cadets who have been repected by the Air Corps for lack of emotional stability (scare: SCO youths rehabilitated, all flying now). After 25 years of treating rank-and-file New York for various big city-acquired phobias Dr. Garrett believes they react to the peril of falling bombs with an "icy .calmness" eclising even that of the British. Their apathy, he adds, may actually embarrass or hinder work of rescue battalions. THEY WON'T DUCK FOR COVER ''Will JSiew - Yorkers- dart, for the safety of a subway kiosk when raiders appeal"?

They brave snow, sleet, crushing crowds and hours of pandemonium to see a street parade. In times if disaster—and in fires and accidents each year, "the city has the equivalent of 100 aerial bomb blasts—crowds defy danger from toppling buildings. They fight to get through fire or police lines. "Add to this the nerve-wracking din of continuous traffic, crushing mental tension of subway rushes.. .and the fight to exist. No, these people will take to an air raid like ducks to .water. Typical examples of how Yorkers will react? "Let's consider the traffic'cop in the Times Square Zone. A gracious soul despite New Year's Eve jams, heckling hack drivers and tinhorn bandits, he'll guard his post like a stancheon. Flinch at bombs? Wot he! But he may sneak a look skyward and grin. RAIDS WON'T BOTHER 1IACKIES "The city's H38,OOO^taxietrtr drivers- Remember the Paris Taxi Corps? Well, the New York hack man hasn't a drop - of emotion in his veins. He's cynical, a wizard at repartee, softie at heart and invaluable in times of catastrophe. His close professional brother- under-the-skin is the skipper of the ferry boat. The ferry captain, with a streak of naval lore under his' bredst, will watch the raid with clenched fist. ..and wish for a gun.
