The course is being taught by Jay Murray of Iowa State University. The main purpose of this course is to train people to help people to help themselves in an emergency. Some of the subjects to be covered are Tornado Preparedness, Nuclear Weapons, Effects, New Public Building Planning, Communications, Emergency Preparedness, and others. The question was raised in last Thursday's class "is slanting techniques or safety protection being given consideration as our new high school is being planned." Those members in attendance believed this should be the concern of every parent. Another current Civil Defense program is "The Personal Family Survival Class." The State Department of Public Instruction in cooperation with state and local Civil Defense Agency is encouraging all high schools in the country to include this course in one of their social studies classes and many of the schools are cooperating. Stand-by power is to be provided for radio equipment in police and sheriff offices by a 5 K. W. gasoline fueled generator- which has 'been purchased by Civil Defense. This is to be used only in time of failure of regular source of electricity. It is necessary to have stand-by power to meet the state communications requirements. Progress is being made in the county-wide communications •network and results will soon be announced. Each town in the county is working on an action plan for preparedness in case of emergency. The concept of Civil Defense has changed in recent years and much emphasis is being given to natural disasters as well as nuclear disasters.
