East, ©f Jollet, regional public safety officer of the Federal Civil De fense Administration, spoke on "You and Civil Defense" at the regular meeting of the Monmouth Business and Professional Women's Club held Wednesday night at the American Legion Club rooms. He said that from the standpoint of civil defense Monmouth and Warren County were listed among the backward regions because they had no organization or designated civil defense officials. He urged that the women of the group take the initiative in a campaign to have local authorities organize a suitable civil defense corps to function in case of a national disaster. He stated that experience abroad proved that approximately a 50 per cent reduction in casualties and deaths could be attained through civil defense organization, planning and training. Pointing out that Warren County would not have to be recipient of a direct attack to be seriously affected, Mr. East listed many ways this area might be handicapped in the event of a strike upon such target cities as Peoria, Chicago and St. Louis. Present Program Miss Diane Payne sang three numbers with Mrs. Oracle Peterson at the piano. The program was in the charge of the national security committee headed by Mrs. Virginia Jaudcs.

This time the destination is Ripon, Wis., where the local team will go in search of its fourth straight victory of the year.

This will be only the third outing for the Redmen, who have split in two games thus far. They dropped a 14-0 tilt with Indiana State in a non-conference opener, followed by a 14-6 win over Cornell, the same outfit the Scots toppled 24-0 in last Saturday's rainstorm.
