training course for senior and junior high school couriers
is to be resumed this week; The Junior High today at
3:15 under John Madey and Herbert Morgenroth; the Senior
High Friday at 3:05 under William A. Rex Jr. and Miss
couriers had an organization meeting before the Easter
vacation at which each was given an assignment to make
an enlarged map of his or her own district with the
location of its senior warden’s headquarters.
At the coming meeting, they will proceed from the enlargement
of their own districts to include outlining all other
districts and they then will be given maps for use in
locating all necessary posts and stations of the Air
Raid Protection Services. Next they will be asked to
place all bridges and viaducts, and to plan shortest
roots among the services, and the best alternate routes.
part of the couriers’ training will be learning
to carry verbal messages. Although they will always
be given written messages while on duty, they must have
the import to each one memorized. Mr. Rex says the instructors
have devised an interesting game to show the couriers
the great importance of listening to instructors. Each
meeting will stress couriers’ equipment and knowledge
of the various services’ insignia so that the
couriers will know at a glance what any arm band stands
course is expected to be completed in four weeks. There
are about 50 Senior High School and 45 Junior High School
couriers, and there is still room for more. Anyone interested
should contact Mrs. T. K. Wright, at Larchmont 2-0735.
