Rain will fall in most of the Pacific Coast states with snow flurries over the northern Rockies. It will be colder in almost all of. the eastern states by tomorrow morning. The Northwest can expect moderating temperatures. - (AP Photofox) Air Force-'Official Commends GOC Work In Address To Local Service Organization Bradley .D. Nash, deputy assist ant secretary for • civil aviation for the ^Air Force, said the Grounc Observer Corps is a "real and living type of service." Nash spoke yesterday at the weekly luncheon of the Cumber land Lions Club at Central YMCA The government official extend ed Jiis sympathy to the club in the Joss-by-death last Friday of Edgar D. Vandegrift, a past president and long active member of the organi zation. He commended the club in its "living memorial" idea in which- each member contributec $1 to the Damon Runyon Memorial ^Cancer Fund as a memorial to Mr. Vandegrift. Nash also suggested service in the'GOC as another type of "living: memorial" for the departed member. Although some 350,000 volunteers man GOC posts at various times in 'the day around the country that number is only about one-third of 'the real need. Similarly the 15,000 GOC posts are only about half of the number required for complete coverage of the country for warning in case of attack. Observing that he was speaking on the 14th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Nash saic that the GOC helps assure that a similar assault by some other power cannot occur. He cautioned the Lions not to take lightly the power of Red China. He said the Red Chinese air force must be vated as one of the four greatest in the world ranking with the United States, Great Britain and Russia. The Lions Club speaker observed that Red China is potentially a much more serious menace than was Japan. Whereas Japan's only •esource is fish, China is blessed vith an abundance of natural resources and* is making great 'tech- lological strides. • Nash compared the international situation today with a bar room where two armed men are "squar- ng off" at each other. The danger will persist until one or the other is disarmed, he said. In the course of his remark about service, Nash cited'sever; illustrations from West Virginia the state of which he is a citize by choice. He maintains a home i Harpers Ferry. The 30,000 4-H Club members i West Virginia are learning to fa better rural citizens of tomorro and they are being guided b some 7,500 volunteer leaders wh serve without any remuneration; h said. Three men actively interested i the Ground Observer Corps Maryland accompanied Nash t the club meeting. They_are Henr B. Thompson, state volunteer GO 1 officer; Major Richard J. Dickson USAF, GOC coordinator for th stale, and Sgt. Frank ' Carbone JSAF, area training sergeant fo :he GOC in seven Maryland an West Virginia counties. The-speak T was introduced by.William G Barger, county Civil Defense direc tor. ;• .rt; Lost All His Money. This remorseful chap thought it smart to carry a lot of money around with him. Doing so made him feel like a millionaire. But somehow, his hard-earned roll of money vanished. It is too bad that he didn't keep his surplus cash safe in a THRIFTICHECK Account. Whenever he wanted to feel like a millionaire, he could look at his checkbook for the amount in his account. He could open a THRIFTICKECK account with any convenient sum, keep as much or as little on deposit as he liked, and enjoy the prestige of having his name printed smartly on his checks. Ail this would only cost him a few cents for each check. Now-if you don't have a THRIFTICHECK account, just stop in and see why so many prudent people do have one with us.
