Radioactive fallout, accord* ing to John Wood, Algona, • director of the Kossuth Coun* ty Civilian Defense Unit now being formed, is heaviest during rain storms. Government officials have advised persons in the affected half Of the United States to stay inside when possible during rains, It it is necessary to be Outside in the rain, it is advisable to wear "slicker" type rain equipment hot. coat and boots, which can be washed off immediately after removal in the basement where the water can in turn go down the nearest drain. The Atomic Energy Commission stales that an individual can be showered with up to 550 roenigens (a measurement of radiation sometimes applied to x-ray) and possibly survive. An accumulated dose of 700 roenigens is fatal, while 100 to 250 roenigens can be taken and survival woulvJ be probable. . Kossuth county, lies In "a band that would get an estimated 12 to 120 roentgens of radialion • an^hour from three to six hours after a blast, say at Omaha. Persons living closer to such a blast area would, of course, receive a much larger dosage— and much sooner than Kos- sulh citiions. Taking Ihe minimum estimated figure from Ihe Atomic Energy report, a person in this area would receive 12 roentgens an hour following a blast at Omaha — and if ha disregarded taking necessary precautions, he would have absorbed enough radiation within Ihe next 42 hour^ to bo a dead man. It has been estimated that 50 percent of nil persons receiving 450 roentgens would die, while dosages of 100 or less are insignificant. A fallout pattern, designed by the Atomic Energy Com- mission, explains that high- altitude winds and surface Winds determine the exact location of all fallout and it could vary from day-to-day. However, it was also noted that the pattern was based on a day which featured typical winds, ' No stale in this country would be free of fallout if a concentrated nuclear attack were completed. A further check of fallout ns it concerns the health of the nation now, has been o/- dored hnd will be completed within a few weeks. Kossulh county's Civilian Defence Unit, under Wood, should 1 be completely set up within the next few months. Many details,' including such items as supplies, transportation, ..communications,' etc., will be worked out as aoon as the unit U officially operating. Even possible evacuation practices will be studied so that necessary steps could be taken in case of a nuclear attack on the United States. One thing is fairly certain — in case of a successful nuclear attack, tome warning, of fallout should reach evety- one in this area from one to several hours in advance of radiation. The amount of radiation here probably would be light and could be Ihwarted if everyone Wotild stay inside and keep window's and doors shut tightly. Canned food and , water -would also be a necessity to exist under such conditions. Civilian Defense will keep, everyone posted on do's and don'ts — lake their advice. *l' a me mes When Mr and Spilles of Mallard Mrs Francis •became the parents of a girl, April 9, it was ,1116-first girl born" in the Spilles family in 63 years, according to the grandparents, 'Mr and .Mrs Frank Spilles of Whittemore.'The other grandparents are " Mr and Mrs' Henry Reinders of Mallard.
