29 Beer Licenses

These licenses have been issued

ber for the state will reach last
year's total of 5,148 before the tax
year ends nine months hence.
Col. Reed Heads
fc (Continued from page $) -
aren't on the alert, or studying
their silhouettes, they're usually in
the air practicing gunnery, throw
ing lead at land and towing trgets.
They have to be on the ball all the
time, for they've got one of the
toughest jobs in any war, when
the raiders come. The long months
of waiting for attack doesn't make
the job any easier.
It is drilled into them, hour af
ter hour, that it takes team work to
repel any attack; that they must
stay in formation unless the squad
ron leader orders otherwise, pass
up every temptation to get on
one's own or to give onlookers a
thrill. This interceptor flying is
deadly serious business; on its
efficiency depends often the lives
of thousands of people down below.
Colonel Reed simply can't get
over talking about the efficiency of
the many thousands of civilians
who have answered their country's
call as ground observers. They're
the key people without whom the
system couldn't function, he says.
If civilians didn't take over the
observation posts, army personnel
would have to be detailed to the
job. One doesn't have to figure
much to come to the conclusion
that if New England alone needs
over 125,000 observers, there must
be two or three million spread
around the country. The army
just couldn't spare that many men
for such duty.
Even with that young army at
work on airplane spotting, the figh
ter command needs more civilians
everywhere- at observation posts,
in filter stations, information
centres. It's interesting work,
with excitement cropping up very
once in a while. If you want to
take on such work, you can't get
in direct touch with Colonel Reed;
his address and 'phone number are
secrets. But put in your applica
tion at the Office of Civilian De
fense, Room 914, at Tremont street,
and it will be acted upon quickly.
Working to Perfection
There can't be any more impor
tant duty, just at this time, the
regional commander states. This
is the summer season; the time
when long range bombing attacks
are most likely to strike. More
volunteers are needed all through
It can't help but be a tremen
dous thrill to the first observer to
spot an enemy aerial attack on New
England. He'll report the planes
to the filter, station, which will snan
the news on to Information Centre
in seconds of time. From there
the interceptors will be ordered
into the air as the course of the in
vaders is plotted by the reports of
While this is being done, the an
tiaircraft representative will be
putting his batteries on alert all
over the region, and the CAA man
will be warning every transport
plane in flight or on fields. Of
course, the representative of the
civilian ARP will be busy, too,
getting the information to the cen.
tral office so that whatever air
raid warnings may be needed can
be sounded. '.
"I can't be too emphatic telling
you that the system is working to
perfection in every test,'' Lieutenant-Colonel
Reed stated. "Don't
ariv anv credit for that to me nor
to the armed forces; the civilians
are doing the job. All we ao is act
when they tell us what's happening.
"Honestly, J could sit here all
evening telling you specific cases
of fine performance, unselfish duty
by the civilian personnel. There's
a fine family tilling a market gar
den not far from Boston father,
mother, a son and a daughter, four
of them altogether. They've been
manning an observation post day
and night, haven't missed report
ing a single plane in the air, for
nearly six months, now.'
"They actually seemed apolo
getic writing in the other day ask
ing that a couple more observers
be assigned to their post; the mark
et garden is taking up an awful lot
of their time at this season, but
they can still trive long hours every
day to plane spotting. I call them
100 per cent patriots.

"Then there were two girls who
were assigned to Information Cen
tre, when we were in the worst
throes of organization. Those girls
worked at their regular jobs in
offices from 9 to 5 ery day -cent
Sunday. Thsn. they grabbed
a bite to eat and tumbled into bed
until 11 at night, when they had to
get up, report to the centre at
midnight to work until 6 a. m.
They kept that up for two months,
giving up all recreation, losing
sleep, to serve their country with
out pay of any kind. Man, that's
