Phono 2430 Ju dg e Mill Heads Civil Committee To* Help - Defence Airman Van Liew Wains of Attack Possibility Organization to Work With Board Supervisors aitd Military Agencies —Helpful Units to Be Recorded In an effort to unify farther Suffolk county ' s part in the National De- fense program , the Board of Super- visors , sitting as the Suffolk Defense council , established a eitizens ' com- mittee on Thursday nigh t , following an enthusiastic public meeting at Riverhead. The citizens ' defense committee , which would work in co-operation with the Board of Supervisors and military authorities within the coun- ty, consists of C ounty Judge L. 'Bar- ron Hill of Soutlol d , chairman ; Sur- rogate Richard W. Hawkins of North- port , county ch airman of the Boy Scouts o-f America; Col. Walter F. Barnes of Riverhead , adjutant gen- eral of the Second brigade , New York National guard; Lawrence Grant White of St. James; Ha rry T. Peters of Islip; Ward Melville of S etauket , and Capt. Harry R. Van Liew of St. James, who will serve as executive director and secretary of said com- -mittee. The Riverhead meeting was called at the suggestion of Captain Van Liew , senior officer with the \United Airlines , who told tlie gathering of Germany ' s air strength , which, he said , places the metropolitan area in danger of air raids. \Germany \ he said , \has * built nearly 1 , 000 longr-range bombers equal in hitting power to the huge bomber this government is building in. Cali- fornia and about which we hear so much. \ He said that while the inva- sion of this -country is virtually im- possible , \it woiild be an easy task for these bombess to leave Berlin , fly across the ocesm , drop bombs on New York and return safely to their base; \ i The defense of the metropolitan area takes in a radius of 100 miles , which includes Suffolk , Captain Van Liew said. He also pointed out that Suffolk has several of the largest mental institution s in tfie world , hav- ing a total of ab out 23 , 000 inmates, \ who , \ he added , \ may go berserk if bombers are ov *e i*head. \ The presence of aircraft factories and, airports in the county, Captain Van Liew said, makes Suft' ollt partic- ularl y vulncrabl-e as a military objec- tive , and the interception of enemy aircraft may some day be a most im- portant . duty in the county. We are , after al£ , he said , an island connected to the mainland by a few bridges and tunnel s , which , if damaged in aerial warfare s would place the island in a hazardous position. . He suggested that a civilian unit for the county be established and that this unit would centralize all infor- mation -and work in conjunction with the Army, Navy and Marine corps in all civilian . ' matters. A subsidiary unit would be formed in eaeh of the ten towns. With the aid of these committees , he said , the Defense council could maintain . a complete fil e of every de- fense worker , no matter how his ser- vices may be required so that he may be called at a ' moment' s noti-ce. The master file would also list all industrial , financial , agricultural and other types of defense needs. , Fac- tories would be charte d , doetors and imirses ,, listed; , 3dy and Girl scouts made available ,, utilities listed and women ' s organizations and various other essential information comp iled. The proposal to establish tho com- mittee was passed by a 1 —0 vote , Supervisor s Ed gar. A. Sharp, Arthur Kreutzer and Frederic J. Wood being absent. j M latista \ TOWN OF BROOKHAYEN Births- April 3— A son to John and Antoin- ette Tortora Montecalvo , Center Moriches , at Mather Memorial hos- pital , Port Jefferson.
