(Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Fire Increases His Faith In "Poor Man's" Shelter By JAMES BACON LOS ANGELES (AP)-The Bel- \ir fire was a costly, test for a 30 fallout shelter but its builder, me of the world's experts on nu- lear survival, is more sold than iver on it. Dr. Willard P.'Libby, winner of the 1960 Nobel Prize for his discovery of the carbon 14 "atomic clock," has little else left at his lome—or pile of rubble—at 1018 N. Chantilly Road. No street in Hiroshima could iave looked worse than Chantilly load. The UCLA scientist's sand- )ag shelter—minus its burned-up railroad tie beams—did much bet- ;er than the house—or the rest of :he neighborhood. "I have more faith than ever in the shelter," Dr. Libby told this newsman today. "This shelter was designed against fallout—a radioactive powder—not fire. Had there been a nuclear blast, I have no doubt that it would have more than done its job." The Libby "poor man's shelter' is a hole dug horizontally into the hillside back of what was once his home. As he shoveled out the dirt, he put into 100-pound burlap bags to construct walls three feet thick. Then he built another dirt wall in ront of the hole with an offset, Phat's because radiation can't Urn corners. He laid the railroad ties above ;he sidewalls and stacked bags [hree feet deep atop the beams. The shelter gave a dirt wall enclosure of 4 by 8 feet. The bags were all treated with zinc chromate, a chemical preservative. Other than a few holes, the bags were undamaged. Mrs. Libby, who had to flee when the flames came, said she gave no thought to the shelter. "I grabbed my mink coat and my husband's Nobel Prize and got out," she said.

Ottawa Savings and Loon Association Will NOT Be Open Saturday, Nov. llth in Observance of VETERANS' DAY Ann Landers Some Chairs Are Not For Sitting Dear Aim Landers: You were wrong in your advice to "Deeply Hurt." She was the woman who headed for the dainty antique chair and the hostess quickly led her to a more substantial one- much to her embarrassment. The fat woman claimed the hostess was a slob. You said heavy people ought to know better. The following is from a book on antiques: "If a chair is too wobbly to be used it should be discarded or placed in a museum. To be of value, an antique chair must be sturdy and in good condition so that quests can sit in it without f e-a r of collapse." Any comment -ANTIQUE LOVER Dear Lover: Thank you for one man's opinion. Now here's one woman's: Some antiques are for admiring. Others are for using. A 200- pound woman should have more sense than to plant herself on a dainty, plush-covered chair, regardless of whether it's new or old. Such a chair was not constructed to hold her — either in the 18th century or now. Dear Ann Landers: My next door neighbor and her husbiirid both work. They kept their aire- dale locked up in the house all day. His incessant barking drove me crazy. I had headaches constantly. After four months of agony my doctor suggested that I report the situation to the Humane Society, so I did. The very next day the barking stopped. After a week of silence 1 decided that the neighbors got I rid of the dog. Of course I was J pleased. I Last Sunday I saw these peo-j pie in the yard and I said "Good morning." The woman replied "Don't say good morning to me as if you were a friend. On account of you we had to give our dog to my mother." She then j walked into her house and slammed the door in my face. I'm sick about this. I've never had neighbors who were unfriendly. Did ' do the wrong thing?— NON-PLUSSED Dear Non: You did the right tiling. Now forget it. A happy dog doesn't bark all day. You did an airedale a favor — as well as yourself. Dear Ann Landers: I was born out of wedlock and my mother gave me to her mother to raise. I grew up thinking my mother was my older sister. When I was a child she was mean and abusive to me. I disliked her very much. 1 found out when I was 17 that she was my mother and I have Mated her violently ever since. My own daughter is now almost 5. She keeps asking me for a grandma — like her playmates have. My grandmother is dead. My real mother lives in this city and has called me several times to patch things up. She wants to get friendly now that [ live in a nice home and have a good standing in the communi- .y. It's been seven years since ['ve seen her and to be honest, I've never been so happy — or r elt so well. Should I put my feelings aside and let her be a grandmother to my little girl? My husband says it's up to me. I'll do as you say. -MONA Dear Mona: Feelings can't be 'put aside" so easily. So long as you have such deep-seated hostility toward your mother, getting together again would probably mean reopening old wounds and inflicting new ones. Why look for trouble?
