Col- ored lights tell you what's cook- ing and at what speed. cide who'll take whom and what equipment where! Good thing the pimne system wasn't dam- aged by the bomb!" In the meantime ten weary ~"victims" patiently wait in the wet and the cold for a few Ci- vilian Defense key figures to all be in readiness for the enemy to drop the "bomb." Of course, the "enemy" had planned to drop the bomb at 1:30 p.m., but out of courtesy to Civilian Defense per- sonnel, they kindly waited until 2 p.m. Then, per signal, the car was ignited, the victims took desig- nated positions in the immediate "bombed" area. The fire engine arrived very promptly a n d screamed past the casualties to the burning car and busily ex- tinguished the fire. The ambu- lance raced past the "suffering" victims to the burning car! Golly, they must be going to carry the car away in the ambulance! The police arrive and direct traffic right past the poor maimed cas- ualties, who do not seem to be recognized as such in spite of brilliant red arm badges that could be spotted a block away, frantic waving of instruction cards, and anguished pleas for assistance. The casualties, finally, after it looked as though the party were breaking up, stagged up to the ambulance driver crying "We're badly injured, in fact. some of us are unconscious!' to be told "Sorry, that's up to the Civilan First Aiders." Well, anyway a few dozen firemen, police, and onlookers were too busy with the !burning car, which was isolated :enough anyway so that it could- n't possibly ignite anything else, to be bothered with ten badly injured victims. "Where are the First Aid Squad --Where's a doctor? "Can t we be transported in some of these cars, in that big sifiny ambulance, to the Aid Station?" No, that's not according to plan evidently, so the anguished casualties just quietly bled to death or died of shock, and everyone headed for home excepting the First Aiders. who arrived miffed at .having been cheated of victims to prac- tice on.
