#46 Blast Off for Mars


BLAST OFF FOR MARS

Military units from all over the world reported to their nearest rocket bases, which had been quickly set up by the newly formed “Space Committee.” Governments from every country on Earth worked hand in hand to fight the menace from Mars. Tanks, guns, rocket-planes and soldiers were loaded into space-ships, ready to continue the vicious war with the Martians on Mars. Men from the ages of 16 to 45 were given quick physical examinations and enlisted into the Earth Army. Volunteers flooded into the recruiting centers, as brave citizens showed they were eager to fight the worst peril that had ever threatened civilization.
