Illinois is the first State to formulate an emergency water and milk supply pro- gram. Clarence W. Kiassen, Chair- man of ISCD Sanitation Divi- sion and Chief Sanitary Engi- neer, State Department of Pub- lic Health, said Councils in cities of more than 1,000 popu- lation have received instruc- tions on all phases of the pro- gram. Arrangements are being made with water works superinten- dents and health officials, he said, to haul water and milk to emergency a r e a s if normal sources of supply fail.

Gen. Frank Parker, Executive Director, has informed local Councils in a summary of an OPA ruling. A car must be used in civilian de- fense work “substantially all the time” to qualify. Four classes of civilian de- fense groups may be eligible: federal, State, local, and foreign government employes, includ- ing State and local Defense Council employes, entitled to compensation for using their cars and able to prove no other transportation available, mem- bers of the Civil Air Patrol, the Forest Fire Fighters Service, and the Aircraft Warning Serv- ice.

Maj. Gen. Frank Parker, Ex- ecutive Director, said that, un- der this system, officials of each division will deal with only four to six subordinate groups. Administrative powers have been transferred to the County Councils, Gen. Parker said, while functioning powers re- main with local Councils.
