Rodal, Island defense conncillbr: * . Blackout means BLACKOUT not dark. Ordinary curtains and window shades are not sufficient. A lighted match can be seen in the air from a high-flying airpiane. Either, use NO lights (or approved blue lights) during blackout periods-or else c o m p l e t e l y * BLACKOUT windows with BLACK paper or other light-sealing substance. One of the worst times for an air-raid is just at dawn, when many Islanders are arising. Don't relax BLACKOUT rules just because it is getting light outside. No unnecessary driving during blackouts Headlights should be blacked out except .-for strip in lower half three inches by one-half inch covered with blue cellophane. Protect that tteillight. Leave ten minutej earlier for ffcrries,, so you can drive slowly and pre-vent accidents. Sudden sounding of Island blackout signals DURING a blackout period means an -air-raid is 'pending. Do NOT use lights to go to places of shelter Do not be alarmed a-t sound ofrgun-fire in early morning. Anti-aircraft gun crew<j in Puget Sound area practice at that timp- Cooperate cheerfully and promptly witn air-raid precautions patrol in requests to turn out your lights.
