Men who have not yet found their spot in the organized
campus defense setup are needed to volunteer as fire watchers.
From 75 to 80 persons will be required to supplement the few
students who have already offered their services in this capac
ity, announced Earl E. Boushey, assistant professor of educa
tion, last night. Mr. Boushey and Dr. Wayne W. Massey, as
UA LUV/ ill t U1 V1Q1UU LI 11
der the campus defense council,
are supervisors of the group.
Fire watchers have as their
purpose to watch campus build
ings for incendiary bombs during
air raids, and to extinguish the
burning missiles. They are also
to keep immediate fires which
might be started by, bombs from
spreading. ■ dm rani .
A specified number of men will
be assigned to every major build
ing in each section of the campus,
as it has been divided by the de
fense board. Eight divisions,
classified by letters, have been
established, making the campus
a veritable “city within a city”;
and fire watchers’ jobs are es
pecially important so that con
flagrations, in the event of a
raid, wilt'' heft endanger other
parts of Eugene.
Watchers’arte to be stationed
at strategic pfiiiits for each build
ing -usually one man on the roof
and Ontev' oft thte ' tftp floor. The
number anti positions' of the men
depend tipta’n 'feftilding structure.
The following tabulation lists a
section of the* campus, the ser
geant in charge of fire watchers
there,' and tlite number of men
each sergeftnt-Cvill rieed:
Section A" fctfpg Decker, 9 men.
Section fe,‘John MacKenzie, 14
Section C; Lawrence Thompson,
Section D, Dan Dotter, 8 men.
Section Wask, 15 men.
Section 'D, Russeti Smelser, 13
Section G, Jake Fisler, 7 men.
Section H, John Williams, 10
Procedure which fire watchers
will probably go through in the
event of a bombing attack is as
follows: The man on the roof
either sees or hears the bomb,
which may fall off the roof. If,
however, it goes through the
roof, he signals a police reserve
stationed outside the building,
who will know where the indoor
fire watcher is located. The re
serve then notifies this person,
who will have apparatus with
which to extinguish the fire.
Fire fighters stationed in Fen
ton hall will be notified by tele
phone or messenger if the blaze
spreads. Almost 50Q gallon cans
for sand have already been con
tributed by campus living organ
izations, and 1,000 more are
needed, Mr. Boushey said.
The two supervisors hope to
enable those preparing to become
fire watchers to actually see in
cendiary b o m b s extinguished,
through cooperation with the lo
cal police department. Practical
experience will thus be a feature
