taking First Aid courses, and in a
short while a good many of these
will be in position to impart knowl
edge thus acquired to others in the |
county until it is probable that near
ly all who are willing will be able
to acquire some knowledge and
training in First Aid work.
Tlie Board of Commissioners of
Martin County have been coopera
tive in our program of trying to or
ganize the entire county for fire pro
tection and police protection.
Due to so much demand on the
Government Printing Office*, the
Office of Civilian Defense has not
been able to furnish local councils,
including our own, with necessary
books, pamphlets and instructions,
without which it has been impossi
ble to thoroughly acquaint our citi
zenship with the absolute necessity
and importance of participation by
all citizens in this important work.
But in spite of the lack of informs
tion, wherever the citizens are
ed on they have reacted as true
ercians when they see the need.
The chairman above named is very
appreciative of the cooperation of
Martin County citizens.
From time to time now valuable
instructions will be distributed so
that very soon all the men, women,
boys and girls will understand what
their Government expects of them in
the home front in this all-out war,
looking toward a full and final vic
tory for our Nation and their A Hies
