Air raid protection--what to do in your home. This is not the way to spend the evening, but simply a handy place to go if bombs suddenly start falling nearby. A heavy, sturdy table will not only keep off falling plaster that may be shaken down by a nearby burst, but would even help to support beams if the upper stories should come down. A shelter such as this will give the rescue squads a chance to save you. One precaution: keep that table away from the window

Civilian protection. Fully equipped to cope with any situation they may encounter these New York City volunteer auxiliary firemen put on a demonstration of the matter in which they would handle the damage caused by an incendiary bombing attack. An incendiary bomb has fallen through the roof of this building and is blazing in the second story. One worker has already entered through the window and is using an "Indian" fire pump on the small blaze which has started. His fellow workers are following up the ladder equipped (from top to bottom) with the following items: top man carries a portable acetylene torch used to cut through metal to effect entrance or to extricate occupants caught under fallen beams or pipes; the next man carries a roof rope, while the man at the bottom bears a two-way portable radio. All workers are supplied with gas masks

Shipbuilding. "Liberty" ships. These are shell frames and deck brackets ready to be welded between deck beams and frames for ship of the Liberty Fleet under construction at a large Eastern yard. All parts are prefabricated in this huge Eastern plant which formerly turned out freight cars. The completed sections are then carried six miles to the ways on flat cars. Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyards Inc., Baltimore, Maryland

Civilian defense. This is one of the new electrical and gas emergency trucks developed for the defense of American citizens. It contains all sorts of first aid equipment and tools for firefighting, pumping, gas line repairs and electrical work. The insignia shows these men to be members of a rescue crew. This represents one truck with rescue squad equipment, to aid them in tunneling through rubble, cutting through beams and walls and other necessary operations to reach persons trapped in the demolished houses

This saw, which operates on 110-volt direct current generated by the truck, can be used as far as 2000 feet from the truck

Conversion. Hosiery factory. She wears them but she doesn't make them any more. Conversion of a large Eastern mill from production of women's stockings to mosquito netting for the Army and Navy, gives this worker a vital defense job. She's drawing yarn from warp machine into warp beams prior to its use on looms. Van Raalte Company
