Feb. 1, 1954 - Air Observer unit to hold meeting: Reactivation of the Air Observer Corps at De Pere will get under way tonight at a meeting in the West Side engine house.

Representatives of the U.S. Air Force training team from the Green Bay Filter Center will assist De Pere Outpost Supervisor Max E. Franc in detailing plans for establishment of a corps of trained observers here.

Franc and Robert Johnson, chief observer, cite the need for 200 volunteers if De Pere is to accomplish round-the-clock air watch without imposing too much of the burden on a few individuals. Men and women are eligible to serve as observers. The minimum age requirement is 17 years.

More than 15 civic and patriotic organizations have signified interest in the De Pere program and will be represented at tonight's meeting. In addition, local industrial employees have agreed to do their share in providing manpower for the project.
