May 5, 1942 - Booths taking enrollee names: Flags flew from a few buildings today to herald the opening of the campaign to enroll volunteers for Civilian defense, but there was little other evidence that a drive for 3,000 workers was under way here and in De Pere.

In order to recruit the number of workers estimated as required to protect the county properly, enlistments must total 1,000 a day, it is pointed out, and those who feel they ought to participate in the defense effort are urged to sign up without delay.

There is room for every volunteer, man, woman or youth. Assignments will be made on the basis of need and aptitude, following preferences wherever possible. Auxiliary fire and police, rescue workers, decontamination, demolition and bomb squads, nurses' aides, messengers, staff workers, and emergency food and housing corps are some of the classifications.
