KOSSUTH MAY BE BOMBED, OPINION OF MILITARY MEN Addressing the Rotary Club hero Monday noon 1 Dr. M. G. Bourne gave some (interesting sidelights on the civilian defense angles as being applied to the country's interior areas. Recently he attended a meeting of the state medical emergency service for civilian defense at Des Molnes. Addresses 'made al this meeting by military experts in dicated that the interior section: were not free from bombing attacks It was stated that possibly enemy bomber planes would come in here drop their explosives on vulnerable defense plant points and then ground, raise their hands In surrender and depend upon Internation* law for protection as a prisoner of war. And while, as Dr. Bourne stated, our people would feel inclined to treat such a • prisoner roughly, we should remember that many of our boys were prisoners of war and enemy coutries would be quick to retaliate. Encourages Home Training ODr. Bourne said that training courses in home nursing, first aic and nurse aid should be our first interest here. There would come time when non-combatants along the coast areas would be sent to the interior. This would mean sickness perhaps peritilence, and knowing how to care for such , patients in " Page the "Pied Piper" For Rat Crusade at Doan ,. theigovernment.was sponsoring th< training of 30,000 .'nurses this yea: arid that next ^year that numbei would .be raised to 60,000., No Shortage of Doctors The fighting forces of our country are well equipped with doctors he said. However, there are many of the younger physicians who are enlisting and the shortage of medical men in the smaller cities and tqiwns might some day be felt anc the government would then assign doctors from other communities where men could be spared to such towns .and cities. He said thui larger cities were declared by the government to have an pversupply of medical men. Kowuth in Good Shape (Dr. Bourne said that, according to the -.government's division ; pi medicalaid to .pppulation Kossuth county was In excellent condition at the present time. However, tr stressed the inrportnace of men and ivoraen 'taking courses in first aid and home nursing. He stated that so far several .hundred men and women had taken advantage of the .wo hours per .week training in ihese lines and hoped that the In- :erest and desire, to be of service in tome defense would continue. qOUNTYYOUNG DEMOCRATS MEET HERE THURSDAY Ovaries R.
