IS ORANGE ASLEEP? This
question might be asked and an-
swered now in view of what hap-
pened at Pearl Harbor last De-
cember .7, when it was said the
V. S, armed forces and civilians
were helpless for the moment to
protect themselves. Would Or-
ange be found in proportionately
as bad a state of prepareuness as
Pearl harbor if attacked now
from the air by blasting or in-
cendiary bombs or poison gits?
The answer Is undoubtedly that
she is unprepared now to a very
greet extent. No doubt many
people would be injured or kill-
ed in panics that would result
from an air attack of any- form
tonight, because of the low per-
centage of people who have re-
sponded to the urge to train for
tMcse emergencies. In the name
of all that is Good and Holy pnd
f<?r the sake of humanity, LETS
DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
THE MOSQUITO MENACE In
Orange can and will be curtailed
by continuation of work elimi-
nating breeding places for the
pests that include stagnant wa-
ter holes. No doubt a wonderful
benefit will result from the fill-
ing in of the 3.48-acre as well
as adjacent tracts for the large
group of government houses that
are soon to be built for war work-
