Mr. Cashmore said in his address: "Pride Alone Won't Win "We Brooklyn)!? have just cause for pride in the rc.p-n.-e of our people to every apical for the war effort. Just a.s in the matter of fire volunteers. Brooklyn has made a good record in contributing to the Red Cros.s blood bank, in sahasing metals, rubber and other materials for war production, in purchasing war bonds and stamps, m supporting the USO. and in every phase of civilian defense. "But pride alone won t win this war and we need more than our already fine volunteer record to protect this borough when incendiary bombs fall. Brooklyn needs a bicger fire auxiliary force than any other section of the city. Twenty-eight thousand volunteer firemen is the absolute minimum needed for Brooklyn to assure a reasonable protection against the spread of conflaerations if there is a raid. "It, is for this reason that I have officially proclaimed the week starting tociav as Brooklyn's Volunteer Fire Auxiliary Week." W. M.
